Re: The First World Problem Thread

I am in for a philosophical debate, apparently over a beer. I do not drink beer.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Coop has apparently changed green bean suppliers.

Before, the beans were packaged all lined up in neat soldierly rows, tops and tails all pointed the same way. Alles in Ordnung.

In the new packaging, the beans are now all jumbled up topsy-turvey, every which way.



I cannot cope with the chaos.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Close to the ultimate First World Problem article, in the NY Times' "Wealth Matters" section, dedicated to the genuinely wealthy: Easing the Transition From One Nanny to the Next. My favorite snippet:
Quote:
“I interviewed two sisters, and one of them, once her nanny left, she wondered if her sister would be the next to go,” Ms. Wrigley said. “She hadn’t figured out the boundaries of the family.”
Makes you wonder how often these two sisters saw their parents

OMG that is simply awful! How long do you have to live with THAT picture?
They really should ask for an appointment first.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I only go shopping in Germany once a week, and that`s when I buy my whisky. BUT I`m only allowed ONE bottle!

The rationing makes me panic - and then I drink more than I should.

I wonder if I ask nicely, if the Zoll guys will allow me to swop my meat ration for alcohol?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

App on my phone keeps notifying me it has auto backup for me some "Awesome photos", and showing all my whatsapp selfies and belfies from whatsapp conversations with my husband while he is away a lot lately.. yes I do think they are awesome but they are for his eyes only, stop putting them on my notifications bar!

Don't worry: they're cleaning the internet pipeline between Siebnen and Pfaffikon at the moment, which is causing delays all across Ausserschwyz.


They should be finished by the weekend, and everything should be back to normal - in fact, it should be a bit quicker if they manage to shift the blockage of livestock erotica that built up just behind Wangen.
