Re: The First World Problem Thread

Some Coop shelf stocker put Chicken wings where the half chickens belong. what is the point of selling pre roasted chicken if the customer is expected to distinguish between a meal and a snack?

Thursday nights if you nip over the border in the direction Hohentengen you can buy a whole hot roast chicken for 8 euro

That's a royal eff up! I usually grill chicken wings in the oven and eat them as a main course. Poor dude must have assumed that anything that has to do with a poultry belongs to Poulet section. Typical local grandiose faux pas "exerted on expats" in der Schweiz.

Indeed. Had I wanted a homeopathic portion of Poulet I would have made broth. My weekend is ruined, despite the fact that I have Swiss citizenship.

That was only after my tennis match at 9h30 that I won 6:0, 6:0 in 45min.

Spoilt me on that rare occasion.

Hadn't he showed up, we would have had to arrange it some other time or WO without the result.

Clear winner. Never mention the fact, that he was ranked 3 categories lower than me, LOL.
