This morning I sprinkled cumin on my muesli instead of cinnamon, so had to waste ANOTHER 5 minutes cutting up fresh grapes, papaya, bananas, apples and walnuts

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Need to make label's for the boy's phone and iPod before his school trip tomorrow and the dymo machine has run out of battery.
Where am I going to find batteries at this time of night?

Steal them from some other electronic item.

Smoke alarms, for example...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Came back after a whole day of work and found 50 pages of discussions on the 9Feb vote.

They should move swiss referendums on Saturday's so that I can catch-up the 50-pages discussions on Sunday.
