Re: The First World Problem Thread

Coming back from my business trip to Munich by Europcar, the shortest route criteria guided me to the ferry across the lake Konstanz. Now, I need to explain to admin why I have paid extra €12, instead of taking alternative route.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I ordered some bamboo blinds for the patio and was delivered a atcky faux leather bed frame.

I asked when the blinds would arrive and when the bed would be removed. Waited over a week before reminding the firm, they said my blinds would be delivered, but dont worry about sending back the bed I could keep it.

It is unused, at least I think it is, but who knows! It could look fetching with leopard print silk sheets, anyone interested? This is the amount of effort I am prepared to go to, to get rid of them myself. Strewth I am knackered now.

What is it with all these businesses disapearing?!

I spot a gap in the market: A garage with a sushi-corner.

It takes forever to milk that stuff out of my (very) fancy italian machine. I'm back to the kettle, Nescafe and happy again each morning.

I mean - who could resist this? Life is all about choices...

If I hear Ed Sheeran's Galway girl noisy bag of a song one more time, I swear I will throttle someone.. preferably him.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I just had a coffee and croissant at the Cafe Lang. I like this cafe a lot but the croissant was rather heavy and doughy... I just hate wasting my croissant allowance on a croissant that doesn't fit my wishes which are that it be light and airy. I've wasted calories and it has upset the balance of my whole day.
