Even when a cat is being annoying, they're doing it with a specific aim in mind. There's a favourite cat toy under your pillow.

I know you don't
what did you call them? Bland?

Leads to mine: I can't buy crumpets in Switzerland.
(which makes them oh so much more desirable. That's me, I'm afraid )

Now, let's hypothetically assume that I would have some crumpets at home. I'm not saying I do nor am I saying that I don't...For the sake of the argument, what would you be willing to offer for say, 3-4 crumpets?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

LiB, if you're coming to Zurich anyways, I'll take a couple of Bagels with Pastrami and Dijon mustard.

In exchange I'll take you for a spin around Regensdorf in a '71 Chevy Vandura based camper, tomorrow - I know you're a fan of fine and rare automobiles, so this is just right up your alley.

If your offer is good, ZüriRollt, he'll probably drive to France and get some.
