Re: The First World Problem Thread

This "be who ever you want to be" movement is seriously going too far. Now flies bite, trying to be mosquitos.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Watching The Crystal Maze on catch-up and I just parodied to my OH the team of girls who "are like, so excited to be on the show, and, like, want to choose so-and-so to do the physical challenge coz she's like, so Beyonce."

And he shook his head, because, I'm like, so jealous and bitter.

My subconscious is deeply convinced it's Thursday today. I'm having serious problems keeping my week's schedule.

Funnily enough, I thought it was Wednesday till lunch (when the restaurant had a different menu than I checked up, since I used the "Mittwoch" tab )

A collegue of mine managed to call a guy at 4pm, asking why he didn't showed up to the meeting. Turns out the meeting was scheduled for Wednesday. So it seems I wasn't the only one a day ahead

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I caught a cold. There are two camps suggesting different things. One that I should stay at home not to spread germs and infect people around. The other thinks that if I don’t have a fever then should be ok to go to work. Cannot please them all.

I decided that I’m grown up enough and should rather listen to my body signs instead.

I suspect that the story is more about how it got to Greenland:

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My new work laptop is so light that I feel like it's not in the backpack. This generates anxiety that I left it at home.
