Nope. It seems like it's somehow imprinted the ink onto the bit you're supposed to sign. I even tried washing in warm soapy water.
You have to change your auto vignette, right? Get one of those removal kits and work on the credit card with that.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I suffered from heatburn lately, a thing totally unknown to me before.
I love eating bread straight from the oven.
I bake bread often lately.

Tonight I connected the dots.

Could this also help get the cover off my Selection Mousse au Chocolate?

I don't have them but having shoes with a software bug is quite a first world problem.

This I think is the most first world fwp I've seen on this thread!

And then the self-driven cars cross my mind and I hope I will die before they become compulsory.

Then again I probably will soon after they do.

Au contraire, looking forward to a glass or two of wine with my restaurant meal and then telling the car to take me home!

The weather is so good that I'm worried about March skiing conditions. Not to mention that I forget sunscreen every day.

I am roughing it tonight! Where is John H...

Not that I'll need sunscreen on moon lit slopes. I will leave that FWP for ya. Generously.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I couldn't find ammonium bicarbonate anywhere here and I hate making a shopping trip to Germany only for that, basically...long gone are the days when I thought we're saving lots if we do our weekly shopping over the border.

Any idea where I can find this stuff? Until it becomes a FWP. :-)

We got our flu jab last October as usual, but two of my kids came down with the flu anyway...

We are off to the magnificent high mountains boonies for some carnival and other weird and good fun. Yay! It is far.

Problem is they can only guess which flu strains will be prevalent in Winter so if they guess wrong then the vaccination does not help you.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I'm finally, at my advanced age, getting to see more of my home country, thanks to the family young'uns having the good sense to start of on this 'adulting' thing in interesting places. This last trip was to Scottsdale and Sedona - and I have utterly fallen in love with the desert landscape. As in, completely blown away by the beauty and wonder of it all.

FWP: This seriously complicates retirement planning.

Yes, beautiful areas.
Where would you have planned on retiring before (am also in that planning phase...)
