Re: The First World Problem Thread

I have hardly been able to go stand up paddling on the lake these last few weeks because the top of the car was too hot for me to lean on it to fix the board on the roof racks!

I had to move the V8 out of the way this morning to get the V8 out of the garage in order to have open top driving today.

It's boiling hot tomorrow and perhaps booking tennis court for 2 hours might be more than one can take

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My Green Card (US permanent resident card) was approved in record time - for government standards, that is - but the US Postal Service lost it. Or "lost it"...we'll never know.

[insert very vulgar insults here]

I had to go shopping to get over the anger. Can you believe it?????

Sitting at the back of an 'EasyJet' flight meant that all the best snacks were gone by the time they got to me

Doesn't the trolley normally start from the rear? I always try to sit in the back for that reason.

It departs from the rear galley (fully laden) towards the front of the plane and then they slowly wheel it back to the rear.

Not sure what extra-poverty Easyjet flights you go on but every one I've been on has one going from the front and back so the people in the middle get screwed

Most of your flights have been to/from Scotland, no? Obviously big business for EasyJet snack sales

The only time I'd eat food served on an EJ flight is a morning one with the bacon sarnies, even though the bread is too stodgy and they use ketchup instead of brown sauce

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My motorbike helmet has an forward-facing air intake on the top that I can open to get some airflow over my head on hot days. Said intake *loves* to eat insects, so I'll be buzzing along and suddenly have the sensation of something crawling over my scalp. If I had longer hair then I probably wouldn't notice and it wouldn't be a problem, but longer hair is no longer an option Because the insect invariably won't sit still and I'm constantly aware of its presence I have to stop to remove the helmet and clear out the offending hitchhiker. Fortunately it hasn't yet happened on the autoroute

Filling out the chomage forms in French armed with only B1 skill, compounding the existing work I still have to do at my standard day job, is doing my head in.

My toddler lost the Amazon Fire TV remote, so I had to download the Amazon Fire TV app and use my iPhone to control it instead.

What a palava

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The phones in the 5-star hotel I stayed in weren't cordless. Then I noticed there were TWO phones in the room, but none could reach the spot where I wanted to sit.
