Re: The First World Problem Thread

I wanted to buy rotisserie chicken from the chicken van for the first time in AT LEAST 3 WEEKS. But despite having lots of chickens rotating about, I had to wait 15 min for a chicken.

I didn't.

My wife, in harsh voice, asked me to pass her tablet this morning and I obediently reached for iPad. She was upset because she meant strepsils lozenge to relieve her soar throat. Sorry but I'm tech overwhelmed these days.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I sorted all my laundry last night, ready to get it into the machines first thing cos there's loads this week for some reason. Woke up this morning and realised that it's December and I've forgotten to book my washroom days past the end of November.

I've now booked my days, but they're all on different days of the week dammit!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

All the little family, me included, has a stomach bug. Started with the baby, then my daughter and me, and now my eldest.

One week cleaning vomit and washing load after load of soiled laundry...

After buying a kids tablet on ebay last week for next to nothing I noticed it had a tiny scratch on the screen.

The new loos at work don't have motion sensors so I have to remember to turn the lights on myself before getting comfortable.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I bought small gifts for the neighbours' children at the Christmas market, then found nicer things on another stall.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Catching the train from Zurich to Lausanne on Sunday evening, the train was so packed that I had to stand for half the journey to Bern, and then managed to move and find a spare stair to sit on for the other half.

At one point, I was standing next to a door being pinned in the corner by luggage and some other "unlucky" passengers who decided to sit down on the floor.

Did my good deed for the ride by holding the doors open at Zurich HB, allowing a mother, aunt (guessing, or grandmother), a young child and a smaller one in a pram to board the train.

Managed to get a seat after half the train disembarked at Bern.

Was only controlled on my ticket after the train left Fribourg. What's the point of asking where I'm going when my ticket clearly indicates that I bought a ticket to Lausanne?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Packed to the gills m1 metro this morning.

Then, when it couldn't get much tighter, the tl control officers decide to board to check tickets.

One unfortunate gentleman's morning was made a bit worse as he didn't quite disembark the train in time to escape a citation for not having a valid ticket. No, it was not me - I had my ticket

Why? Is it old, uhm - older people thing? A tic?

I got an academic database where I have to double click. I'd prefer touch screens everywhere to be honest.

So - a mouse is my 1st world nag today. Out with it!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I'm annoyed that my salary can be slightly less than 120k. I need to put many aside to the 3rd pillar to lower the tax

Sure, but where's the fun?

It's so much more interesting to glare at me trying to juggle with a full caddy and the 3 kids running wild in the shopping aisles
