Two policemen randomly stopped me this morning in a residential area and searched my bag. First time I even talk to one in four years here. No explanation. I was surprisingly ticked off.

Started to watch "escape to the country" again lately.
What's up with the limited vocabulary? I can't stand "it's got so much character" anmore.
I love the "characterful" phrase of this programme

They probably wanted to see what you're planning to sell after all the fluffy posts.

If it is a Philips toothbrush then sometimes they get water in them.
You can lever off the oval plastic disc at the bottom, let the water drain, leave it somewhere warm to dry and hopefully it will work again

Like this?



Mine was one of those you just put in the Philips glas to charge. I don't think it would have been possible to open it like that.

Thanks though. I've gone Migros now and am very happy with the new one.
(Got loads of Philips Sonicare toothbrush heads to pass on now )

Put those addictive cookies to a v.e.r.y inconvenient place, a hassle to reach.

Didn't work.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Today my next door neighbour and I have both configured our Tesla 3s and we both have specified metallic grey. Will this lead to confusion??

Raiffeisen offers me a statistic about where my money goes to in details.
It's not the kind of attention I appreciate!

Bankers must be r.e.a.l.l.y bored these days.

My neighbour's Christmas lights are so bright, they are filtering through my blinds. Astronauts on the International Space Station may also have words for Herr Klaus.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Meanwhile, we went to Italy today to get my daughter some donkey sausage.

Alas, they were sold out, so we had to buy horse!

Bunch of asses!

Couldn't you get mule at least?
You should have learnt about compromises after all these years in this country.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I had too much filling for my pork tourtiere this year. And there was also flakey pastry left over, so I'll be having pork tortiere and jam tart for dinner.

(And I forgot to buy beer!)
