Re: The First World Problem Thread

I bought some headlight beam reflectors on the ferry this morning which cost me £6.99.
Anyway turns out I don't need them because my car has modern xenon lights.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Just watching the Swiss come across the finish line of the Biathlon competition (shooting, X country skiing.. - not to be confused..)

It is funny that Swiss Sports money-people have money for sailing, but not for ski-sports

You and Jesus both must get a lot of those 2 for 1 gifts (birthday and Christmas, but just one present!). I feel bad for the both of you.

Thank you. At last, someone who understand our predicament.

There is no space in our fridge because we shop like Americans but don't eat like them.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I had to queue outside the Tiffany's store for 45 mins at the Bahnhofstrasse last week before buying my wife a Christmas present! However, they did offer alcoholic punch and biscuits while queuing so the time I entered the store everything seemed so blurred!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

After a hard morning's packing, I was really looking forward to having the last of the Christmas nut roast in a sandwich with some Branston pickle. I had just sat down with my feet up when Dear Husband returned from walking the dogs.

Being a Good Wife, I immediately got up to make him a nice cup of tea - and came back into the living room two minutes later to find the Vile and Evil Labrador scoffing down my sandwich.

So lesson for the future, Let the husband get his own damn tea.
