Re: The First World Problem Thread

Junior is 5 months old and weighs 8kg. Not sure if I should switch from pampers no. 3 to no. 4 yet? Same applies to baby car seat group 0+, which can carry weight up to 13kg or should I put another one in from group 1? Cot is getting smaller, clothes are getting smaller, the baby is getting bigger and us parents are aging rapidly

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I changed the time of a clock because it was fast and on 15.00h. Just to find out, it actually IS 15.00h. Where did that hour go? I thought "losing time" was just a saying.

If 'Time is money' how much money you have lost?

To me money is time. So most offered deals are not worth my time.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I'm leaving a place I've worked at for over a decade. I've not been into the office since March - working from home. I have a locker in my workplace, which contains a keyboard, mouse, headset and nothing personal. I really don't want to go to the office as it means two hours on public transport for the return trip.

I created a ticket on the internal system. I chose the option that says "you can open my locker without being present". At little while later I get a message "we can't open your locker without being present". So why is that option there? And if I just ignore the issue - they'll have to open to recover the locker for other people to use.

Meh.

(Yeah, yeah - I'll drive in, leave my car on the forecourt, do the deed, drive home). BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT!!!!!

For non covid times. They are most likely home.

Don't ask me what I think about ticket systems. FWP big times.

My alarm clocks (each of which has four legs and a tail but no snooze button) seem to be factory set to OH's work day start of 4AM.

So no holiday lie-in for me...

Just get the OH to lock them away somewhere when they get up, then you release them when you eventually wake!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Early to bed; early to rise, makes one healthy, wealthy and wise.

That’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it.

Somehow I don't think the neighbours would appreciate the Howlelluja Chorus, sung in collie falsetto, at 4AM.

So I stagger out of bed at this undoGly hour, grab a flashlight, and take the critters for a pre-dawn walk.

Still dreaming of that farmhouse on a hundred acres...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I actually wake up about six in the holidays anyway, although my normal alarm is about 5:20 ... for which I wake up a few minutes before it starts.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My whole family decided it was more practical to offer my kids vouchers rather than actual toys... which means that’s it’s me who have to run after them in crowded shops while they choose what they want
