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...

This chocolate bar is so packed with hazelnuts, it won't break cleanly along the designated lines.

I like that kind. Usually means I get to eat more of the bar than planned as it doesn't break where I figured I'd stop eating it.
