I stopped at My coop after work for one thing... chocolate fix. So annoying they were out of the Lindt fruit sensations orange & pink grapefruit

Oh if only i could rewind and go back to the days when a twix fix was enough
Remember when you thought a Twix was enough and now you fondly wish for that Lindt stuff? Once you step up to the below Honduras stuff, you'll never feel nostalgic for fruity chocolate again. You're welcome.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Canadian Prime minister Trudeau corrects someone using the word "mankind" to the less offensive "peoplekind"....and faces backlash for 'mansplaining'.

Highly agreed! Mucked up two days ago, trying something new based on a cup-recipe.

As you don't seem to plan on sobering up anytime soon, you might want to write your preferred gin-brand on a paper and stick it on your shirt for the bartenders to see

The new Migros milk bottles have such thin plastic that I crush them just trying to unscrew the cap off!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I need milk for a far breton recipe I want to try out but just can't be bothered to get out of my apartment.
And I'm trying to refrain from leaving my apartment just to beat my previous record of not leaving the apartment for two weeks (being a 引き籠り姫;Japanese for hermit); I'm aiming for three weeks!

Amazon prime has made the shipping time of other online retailers unbearable for me.
How do you get Amazon Prime to do next/second day delivery to Switzerland? I thought they only offered it in DE and A.


FWP 1: Yet again, Amazon Global sent the 'Package delayed, no idea when it will arrive, sorry not sorry' note. So far they are something like 0 for 20.

FWP 2: Why do I keep paying for expedited Global given their track record? Isn't repeating an action endlessly expecting a different outcome the definition of insanity?

But if the circumstances were different, it would work! Believe me! It would! If only they would adapt.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Got a phone call yesterday that my boat cover had ripped in the last storm.
I checked the weather forecast "dry for a couple of days" so I collected the cover and took it home to repair it.
Now my boat is full of snow and frozen hard

The social anxiety you feel when presented with a tip line on a credit card receipt... at a buffet restaurant.
