Re: The First World Problem Thread

As of this morning, my daughter's shoe size is the same as mine. My son passed me out some time ago..

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Since my op, a head cold isn't such a big deal any more... so I haven't got an excuse to go back to bed! 😢

I keep missing the buttons to flush the toilet as they're at a different place on the new one.



It makes me wonder how much of our lifes is automated. It sure doesn't matter in this case but it might be worth looking at the rest of my life.
So when was the last flush?

LOL. As my synapses are still vividly firing I've overcome the problem. So the answer is: No idea.

Sort of 'word of the day' + FWP:
'Artisan'! The word has been highjacked by dodgy money-hungry rascals. They make all manner of inferior, bad quality, tasteless old sh*te, stick word 'artisan' on it and charge a huge buck for this.
This has made my FW living problematic, I don't want to offend proper dedicated artisans, but I don't want to finance thieving 'artisan' scoundrels either.
I think my beef ain't with "artisan". But "wholesome". Used to be "fusion".

Should we feel that anything not being labelled "wholesome" is clearly unwholesome crap?

Btw, it is easy to determine how artisan a true artisan is. Wholesomness, however..

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Since two days I keep pushing the wrong button on my coffee grinder, which means instead of the perfect portion I get an endless stream of coffee powder.

For the first time in years I have thoroughly ruined my lunch. And we're talking lamb here which is even more depressing.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Played tennis for 1.5h with my better half and then we were exercising for 45min in a park (leg glider, crunches, pull-ups and pushups). It was great. Tomorrow, we might be too soar to get up

Still we need to stretch on yogamatte.

You're right, he probably would have done better with that lamb.
If you put it this way though, I'm quite okay with the ruined lamb now.

30 minutes lunch break is compulsory here. How long does it take to Luton these days? It's the easyjet generation.

Peak business travel flight times for short haul are Tuesday morning and Thursday lunchtime/early afternoon. It's part of why the M25 is always at a standstill on Thursday afternoon.
