Re: The First World Problem Thread

My OH and me had to wait for our lattes at startbucks in Zurich for 25 minutes, while the staff served a dozen of people in the queue behind us. No apologies from them were heard. The first problem: there is no way to pay them back for the awful service and i feel like hurting them...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I can not sleep with the window closed.

NYE fireworks, window closed, no sleep.

On NY night, more fireworks, window closed, no sleep.

Last night, Eleanor was howling, banging and rattling, window closed, no sleep.

Now tonight, some eejit is outside on the street coughing.. non-stop horrible hacking, barking-like coughs for the last hour..

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I should reduce a dry red wine consumption in my household. How much per day is a safe dose after all?

Less than your doctor. (Or more- depends on the doctor.)

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Credit Suisse have just sent me a stack of regulatory documents requiring multiple signatures, but there are no arrow stickies telling me where exactly I have to sign.
I am expected to wade through it like some sort of animal

Just sign and date every page. If something isn't to your liking afterwards then you can always create a whingeing thread here on EF.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Wifey told me that there was something wrong with the bell peppers, the seeds had gone black, her hands were burning, and they tasted strange after she cooked them.

I then pointed out that they were not bell peppers, they were rocotos, hence the black seeds and burning hands!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My gym is full to the brim thanks to "new year resolutioners"

Pro side: I feel great whenever I can add 50-100% weight at every machine
Negative side: I gotta wait a lot and feel less motivated myself to hit the gym

Well, it's just a few weeks and the gym will be all "mine" again

This reminds me.

Forgot to go to the gym yesterday.

That's 17 years in a row now!
