Re: The First World Problem Thread

Went to buy a sandwich at Migros and all they had was vegan crap.
Can't a real guy get a real ham sandwich anymore?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The Euro celebrations are keeping me awake. Can someone tell the Swiss that they are supposed to be quiet after 10pm?

Thanks for the alert - thought it a bit strange, all the honking in the countryside

Re: The First World Problem Thread

A neighbour put a Swiss flag out his window.
It was not there during football. It was not there on August 1st.

Anything going on I don't know about? Patriotism on my door step - do I need to worry?

Perhaps an EF member granted citizenship yesterday? Otherwise just another person who gets dates mixed up

I can't actually. Not what I call proper yodelling.

They will take my Swiss passport off me and give it to her (jump to 2.10 approx).
I admit, this way even I like this.

Yeah, when you see me posting stuff like "oy, can you take the batteries out of these kids" or "would you stop lurking in our windows" on EF, you know your were right.

I think I go for the patriots instead. I mean I can always ignore that flag, red or not.

The "low" on my scale this morning referred to the batteries, not my weight.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I got an if-you-don't-like-it-leave message today
I wondered why a two-room apartment all of a sudden uses more heating than a five-room apartment without changing the settings. (How dare I).

It was my first ever. I agree, it's weird.
