I wanted this to be my chill day with swimming and walking around.
Nope. 13°C and a runny nose.
And I was complaining about the 40° which I came from...

That's why. Learn to control your thoughts (you'll be doing us all a favour as we too have to suffer from the results ).

I have done too much knitting & strimming. My arm hurts so much, I can barely lift my beer glass.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I pulled up outside a big shoeshop today only to find out it has disappeared.
I am getting paranoid, this is the second business partner this year that just evaporated.

Does it mean anything that there were cars parked in the ex-shoe-hall? The last business was a garage ....

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Got a new navi and it keeps telling me I'm driving too fast. While the old one mentioned it once, the new one keeps nagging until I slow down.
(No, changing the voice to male does not solve the problem )

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My quinoa, couscous and feta-stuffed peppers were ever-so-slightly burned. The garnish of sunflower seeds was unpleasantly crunchy as a result.

There's this new thing called "Instruction Manual"...it's like google but designed specifically for your device. Might worth a try.

I hate manuals, I prefer to hand these things just over to a friend and let him fix it

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Have just been fired to be replaced by a fellow colleague from outsourcing (India), who planned this extremely carefully. Not fun at just over 50 in IT.
Sorry, just stating the facts.
