My friends kept asking me how the packing was going, I got tired of telling them that someone else was doing it

How do you know they are doing 'it'? Do you hear the croaking getting louder and louder, faster and faster?

This story gets worse, the service included an 'automatic' car wash

Seriously, well done guys but next time please allow me to drive it to the Sahara desert during a sand storm, I prefer my micro abrasions to be a lot more uniform.

You do know you can change your setting so it doesn't show people when you are stalking them viewing their profile...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I was making a biscuit base (you know - blitzed biscuits with melted butter) for a lime pie, but couldn't find any digestive biscuits (or as they say in the UK, Hob Nobs) in Migros.

I had to settle for these: https://produits.migros.ch/m-budget-biscuit-rond
Turned out fine, but I miss the somewhat more oatmeal-ish flavour of digestives, which would have likely been a nicer complement to the lime filling. I now also have about 100 g left over of said biscuits which taste a bit like an inferior version of shortbread.

What should I have purchased / looked for / used instead?
