I thought you were joking, the score number exists
How could anyone not know of a score? It'd be like not knowing about a gross ... (aka a dozen dozens).

I once mentioned that I have Salt Fiber, so can't make the excuse of spotty internet connection for being late to a VC

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My local Manor Food has closed down. Probably not surprising given that it was always empty, but it had nice stuff.

Actually, once (in the five or six years I've been with Salt) they completely dropped the bundle for about 15 minutes! No fibre, and no mobile internet either!

Just claim that you've had a similar problem ... you can point to that one time it happened as proof that it could happen again.

I did a 10 minute search on DuckDuck go, uncountable variations of asking with no result. Changed to google and the answer was the first on the page.

Privacy is a very time consuming luxury .

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Corona takes too long, I started watching telly again.
Endless "great designs" and "fixer-upper" did nothing but arouse needs within a very short time.
Having been in sales for a long time, how the heck can I fall for this trick?

But if the fixer-upper-lady installs one more kitchen island I might fly over and strangle her.
