Re: The First World Problem Thread

My drive to work is 1 hour but my favourite podcasts only last 45 mins.
Either I listen to 1 and 1/3 of a podcast or 1 podcast and 15 minutes of Swiss radio as filler

McDonalds only gave me 3 BBQ sauces for my 20 pieces of chicken nuggets, now I will have to ration them.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

A couple of months ago, I went to buy a car. I was expecting a fun afternoon with the car salesman, with the usual questions about if my husband approves; shouldn't I go discuss it with the person paying for it if he's happy with it, he he; am I sure this is what I want and not something smaller and ladylike etc etc.

And nothing! Nothing, I tell you. No sexist questions or comments whatsoever. What's the world coming to?

ROTFL! They clearly know how to draw a line who is a boss and who pays for it

Do you have fajitas?

Cut them in triangle and put in in the oven on grill. As good without the salt.

Yeah, but they were used to wrap up the meat and veg and other yummy-ness. Had I known in advance we were out, I would have just made my own chips but it was one of those days.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I can run on a treadmill for around half an hour. Decided to get some fresh air and run outside today and the earphones wouldn't stay in and I got a paralysing stitch. Won't be doing that again!

I hate when they don't accept cards under a certain amount of money.

My piggy trotter keeps hitting "Mark forums read" instead of "Today's' posts" and I have to remember what I've read.
