Re: The First World Problem Thread

I had a question. I took time and trouble formulating it clearly, so that I could open a new thread to ask it.
Then I used the search function.
Others have been before me, and asked and answered my question.
Bah! I had all that work for nothing!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The Election and then a sick child yesterday meant very little sleep for two nights on the trot.

I am incredibly cranky.

It's all Mrs May's fault.

If you'd stop fidgeting and get back here, then you could add worrying about terrorism in the U.K. to your sleepless nights list

Mix the powders all together then divide back up into the right weight, then make one.

When people ask what flavor it is, tell them Jallo.

Spent all afternoon stripping down and renovating the non working water pumps on my boat with no improvement and at the end found it was a failure of the separate water level detection switch!

My free baseball cap I got last time I ran a race does not shield my entire face from the sun. I want my money back

Yep, same here, almost on regular basis since last night .... on ...... off ..... on .... (are you with cablecom?).

No problem for me being a restless person, never really glued to the laptop anyway. My flat is in great shape, my book-keeping is done, etc. etc. all thanks to cablecom

Re: The First World Problem Thread

was flying from london the day after UEFA finals. Since I got to the airport 2 hours early, checked in and all, I was told my flight is to be cancelled, but they can put me in the earlier one...on top of that, the next day I got a voucher for 50CHFs for my inconvenience...
i guess all the emergency exits were taken, and i had to sit like a pleb in economy regular...
