No at an uber swiss company. Everyone goes running or some other sport at lunch time and need a shower afterwards.

The only sweat I build up is munching on my kebab
So that you are not "everyone" ?

Many of those runners do not realize that if they overdo it, it may even be bad for their health. And simply walking the same distance has the same positive aspect then running. I often see runners who look like being close to a heart attack

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I need coffee because mine is almost done but I don't feel like going.

I keep complaining it is too hot but now it's too cold.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The adapter for our UK-imported kettle (still going!) has broken and until we buy a replacement I have to boil water in a saucepan!!

Which means I basically have to anticipate whether I want a cuppa or not about 10 mins before I want one...

How did people get by in Kettle BC?

Reminds me that I missed the opportunity for your dear wife to prepare me a real English cuppa, so that I can learn what I'm missing!

That being said, I do not like to use the microwave to heat water for tea or coffee either...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

For some reason water boiled in a saucepan rather than a kettle doesn't taste right for tea.
Obviously a new saucepan would be fine, but my 30 year old stainless steel ones certainly aren't to good for that, even though they're veryclean.
