There is no WIFI or 4G signal in the toilet at work. It drives me insane. Aaaarrggghhhh
Which one is it, so I can avoid?

(Ok, that was a rhetorical question.)

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Lufthansa fed me so much delicious food and wine on my business class red eye flight last night that I didn't have room for the box of chocolates that they provided at the end of service.

I tucked them into the little pouch under my personal TV screen and forgot them when I left. Bon appetit, cleaning service person!

Practically (and mentally) the year is over in the office for me now but theoretically I need to clock those remaining two weeks as a good principle.

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...
