Re: The First World Problem Thread

Having to drink water with my lunch because the cap of my Coke is on too tight for me to undo and it's too **cringe** to go to the company on the same floor to ask them to do it.

I feel your pain.

Literally.


As I grow older and creakier, at times lacking the strength or dexterity to open a Coke bottle for consumption on the run, I have had to resort to sit down meals at nice restaurants.

Buy cans.... then spend a few hours in a caffeine/sugar miasma. Yum.

Maybe I should give that a go, I never seem to experience difficulties removing a cork from a bottle.

Be careful, you may have the same problem with a screw top wine bottle!

My grandmother used to swear by using rubber gloves for stubborn lids but I didn't have any of those in the office either...

I guess that's my second FWP of the day: Damn office has got a dishwasher so there are no rubber gloves when you need them to open a fizzy drink.

Switzerland? Quality of life? My life is over.

Yes I too use a rubber glove at home to open stubborn lids.

New items for your handbag, SG: a nutcracker and a rubber glove.. just don't let anyone see, could be embarrassing when out for after work Friday night drinks

Re: The First World Problem Thread

A rubber band around the lid works as well as gloves; just keep a couple of rubber bands in your desk to help your weedy hands.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Swisscom sent me a big box and I have no idea why. I should probably take it indoor.
