And comforting myself in that he's probably making the house look better than it is, because you know, he's a photographer...

Pah!

Who wants to live in Maui?! You'd just get sunburned all the time, and probably get sick on eating too much lobster and scallops.


The parties that you could have in the shower look like they could be fun though

I want to read a Terry Pratchett book but now if I do it'll look like I'm jumping on a bandwagon.

The controls on the centre console of an Aston Martin feel a bit cheap.

Not at all. Can you really imagine TP getting upset at jokes about his death, even before he died? No, he'd have loved it.

The tea bag has no tea in it, not a single tea leaf to be seen.

Even more amazing is that OH was actually making the tea and he didn't even notice until he poured the boiling water onto it and the water didn't change colour.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Switched contracts from Swisscom to Orange. Got temporary number. Contract paper stipulated that the new number should have been activated last week. Despite assurance, old number still in use. But that's nothing compare to fact that I tried to use their online contact form that seems to be very professional and efficient.

My only disappointment that they had called me back only after about 10min instead of guaranteed "within 5min ..."

They are aluminium - but appear to have them be spray painted to look like cheap plastic.

The climate seat controller is where the sat-nav controller should be and the sat-nav controller is only 4-way - and with no extended logic.

I'd still have one if someone gave it to me

The gym car park was completely packed this evening so I had to park like half a mile away, and now I'm sneezing because I had to walk back in the cold after my shower
