Re: The First World Problem Thread

Why do they cram so much stuff into ice-cream???
Raisins, rum, chocolate, biscuits/cookies, oh, lets top with chocolate, oh, wait, let's just smother the whole thing in chocolate, or, hang on, we forgot to stick some m&s in it, aaaand... Salted caramel and orange peels and nuts, ALL the nuts in the world!!!.. 'Ang on!!! We forgot sugared ginger and coffee beans and... Some other poo i haven't thought of in this message...
What happened to a normal milk ice-cream? I am flying to Vermont to burn down Ben &Jerry's!

I hate how long it takes to unpack a new work shirt... pins, plastic clips, tags, cardboard stiffeners, tissue paper and more pins.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I really get pissed off when I miss a bubble while getting so close (yet so far away) on higher levels (4xx) in BubbleMania on my iPhone.

Cannot they stop advertising it and making gullible folks like me to fall for it?

Never understood why men's shirts have to be packed up like that in the first place. Why not just have them on a hanger like women's shirts are?

My problem of the day is that I'd planned to go to the dechetterie this evening after hubby came home as I've a few boxes of paper, batteries, etc, to get rid of. Was just going to mention this to him this morning over breakfast when I realised it was the 15th August - which is a holiday here in Fribourg canton. So dechetterie will be closed today. Can't do it now until Friday evening and I've got the new central heating boiler arriving Friday morning - wanted all the stuff out of the way before then. Darn it.

Just went down to the post box to check for mail. None of course since it's a HOLIDAY!

Because we can't just go to H&M and buy a 4 Chf shirt right off the rack. Our shirts are of higher thread count, whiter than the celestial plains, stiffer than a giraffe's neck...3 little dabs of "Juniper Sling" and I guarantee to romance any panties off an office assistant going for her coffee break.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

We CAN get a 4CHF shirt right off the rack ... it would just be a bit see-through and look like absolute garbage. Guess it depends on where you work

In other news: I dislike the fact that everything is wrapped in plastic ... particularly my food. Just waiting for them to start selling single vacuum-packed bananas

Oh come on, what's not to love about little bits of chocolate chip cookie dough in your vanilla ice cream, reminding you that you're not too old and outdated for things like teeth? They even put that concoction into an ice cream sandwich now. It's genius! And the names - cherry garcia, chubby hubby, love them!

Give it to your kids. Children can take things apart faster than any adult and seem to enjoy it far more.

Nope, not anything that might have pins in it 3Wishes. That's just asking for trouble - and a screaming, crying kid as well.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Came home a bit more scatterbrained than normal. Put the oven on, set the temp and the timer.

When the timer beeped I discovered that the baking pan with the Röstikroketten was still sitting on top of the range.

Now I will have to eat dinner nearly a half hour later.

My 802.11ac router stopped working. So I need to suffer with my prehistoric 802.11n router until the amazon prime delivery comes tomorrow because the one I wanted wasn't eligible for amazon same day delivery
