I need to restring a pleated shade.
And I'm stalling.
While daydreaming about thinking "pheeew, what was all the fuss about" afterwards.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

It highly annoys me that people - who have been on EF like for ever - are not able to insert a video in their post.

So what you do when using the youtube button, you insert only what is after the v= in the link.

Example:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6Sxv-sUYtM

it will then look like this: [ YOUTUBE]y6Sxv-sUYtM[/YOUTUBE ] without the blanks you now see within the youtube-tags as I had to put them so it would show here and not be interpreted as html.

And then ..... bliss:



thanks for reading

Re: The First World Problem Thread

@ Curley

It supposed to be a problem thread. (The first part about annoyance is good)

Instead of giving a solution thread. (The second part is merely a bonus)

Yeah, I'm sorry.
You're not the first to tell me "I don't want a solution, I want you to listen to my always same rant once a week".
You won't be the last either.
You can ignore part two. I'm used to that as well

Hmmm, I might need a helpful guide to understand what you need a guide for.
Are you planning to post in the "Thread titles - What first pops into your head, when you read one?" thread?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Two times in two weeks bought expired food stuff. One at the 'posh' Jelmoli and the other one at Spar. I know, it's all my fault for not checking and I check when I buy at Aldi and Lidl, but, common, selling food that's over a month over its expired date?
Next time, when you see a grumpy individual fiddling with the produce, trying to find expiry date /another bother! It could be anywhere! Lid, side, bottom, small, large print, smudged, covered by a sticker/ and blocking the isle - that's me, people!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Suspension pauses /when we hear drum beat or awkward silence and camera moving to and fro participants/. Back in my days it was immediate, then it moved to 5 seconds, now its 10-12 seconds. FFS!

I have nothing but expired cr&p to eat /see my previous first-worldly whinge/, itching because of the dry air because of the heating, tired of locals wining about the refreshing wind, noone to bollock /OH swiftly f&cked off for a couple of days elsewhere/, I am overflowing with swear words..
Generally, that's me today....

Nighty night all.

Lure the neighbour's cat over for a cuddle and shops are open on Saturdays, even in Switzerland.

And this wind is not refreshing, it's annoying. But hey, if it's the only good thing in your life today, so be it.
