Re: The First World Problem Thread

I'm learning more about windows, bricks, plumbing, flooring, etc. than I care to.

We hired an architect, an interior designer and a general contractor, but I am that person who wants to be sure I understand what is being done and why to the "T" before it is done.

It must be done, but I hate it. House renovation/beautification projects suck.

Oh year, FWP2 - this city girl is moving to a house in the suburbs. With desperate housewives-type streets and minivans. Minivans!!!!

That sounds like FUN! (not the desperate house-wife bit). If it wern't in Trump-land I'd offer to take the job.

I am sure if you leave it on the table it won't get nicked. Or they'll just wake you up.

Perhaps you misunderstood 'mobile ticket'.

We had an Italian chap join our team, and not liking our choice of coffee, snuck in early one morning and put his own brand in.

Now, he was one who only drank about 3 cups a day. The rest of us were constantly refilling our cups throughout the day.

We were all hyperactive by 9 am that day. The boss kept some Grappa in the ice compartment of the fridge and broke that open to try and counter the effect. I don't think we did much constructive that day, but all slept like logs that night.

Of course!
Make sure it's the Swiss-ID one, so they can charge your bank-account in case you slept through your destination train-station.
