It's nice to hear that humans have stopped shitting on your car.

Me too

Meanwhile:
My car has appreciated 25% in the last year and I have a garage agreeing to sell it (without cost) if I want to, but the car I'd like to replace it with has sold out

And the FWP could be effectively spotted here:

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The announcement comes over the train PA, "Ladies and Gentlemen, due to track works the train will be delayed for approximately 10 minutes. For connections at the next station, please consult the information on that station's platforms."

In Switzerland, you huff and remark sarcastically, "Fantastic...."

In some other first world countries, it's Tuesday.

10 minutes? Gosh that might make the evening news tomorrow! If it had happened just a bit earlier it would have been breaking news on 10 vor 10.

If you vouch that it's good on parquet floors we'll take it off your hands... Would solve our first world problem too

If you are in the Baden area tomorrow is paper. Wednesday was cardboard.

Give it up and go out in the sun.
