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.

Buyer must pick up in Greenland.

I'm wondering how you'd get it here.

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.

I had to put a bandaid on my finger, and now my new iPhone can’t read my fingerprint to unlock!

Now I'm really sad that someone hasn't said "MORNINGTON CRESCENT!" and then I've told them, that they can't have that "because of the diagonal rule".
