Why does coin money have to be so heavy?

And paper money is SO big it has to be folded to fit in my wallet.

And why are credit cards, membership cards, driving licences etc. all so big? I can't find a single small wallet that will hold them all as well as the minimum required few hundred chuffs, and still fit in my back pocket

shouldn't the complaint be about your iPhone being so old that it doesn't have a fingerprint scanner?

United Business Class always seems to have asparagus in their starter course. It makes my pee smell funny later in the flight after drinking the free booze.

As the last leaving user, I forgot to flip switch feeding treadmill and all stepping machines in our local fitness center at work. Surprisingly, they all will be on first thing in the morning tomorrow
