My bones are so fat that I need an xl charge HR version and that's only available in the US and can't be shipped outside of US and Canada!

My Home to Work route requires only a 4 minute ride with the S-Bahn. Not enough time to reach the comic section of 20 Minuten

Some pleb trespassed into first class, used our toilets and then helped themselves to the complimentary vol-au-vents.
Had I not been having a massage, I would have gotten up and confronted the blaggard

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Applied for a credit card (actually Bonviva package) with Credit Suisse. It took them two weeks to tell me that they are not going to offer me credit.

Now I need to brainstorm another way to get a reliable but cheap carry-on luggage.

I think you'll find 4 minutes is plenty of time to read the entire 20 Minuten. Twice.

Yes. The name relates to how long they spent writing it, not how long it'll take you to read it.

Your baby has "voluntarily" ( work with me here) gagged on a pen, has bitten you whilst being nursed and now has bit the dog.

I assume the dog was not happy and winced away.

Is there something you should be attempting to explain here?
