Too much choice.
My life would be so much better if my pantry shelves looked like that.

Alcohol is too cheap here, even considering my use of Canadian dollhairs.

My freezer was so full that I had to compromise by removing some ice cubes. All good ...

How will I be able to drink my Glenfiddich 15 year old Solera Whiskey on the rocks now?
Who drinks whisky on the rocks???

It is Sunday, 6am and I have been writing so I can ski later. It is an exciting FWP, could be worse.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The silly car parking sensor didn't warn me there was a boulder in the way (as I was veering in a parking lot - one of the "corners" has a boulder as an ornamental yard feature) and I scratched my front bumper. Luckily no dent, but still. I wonder if they fail to pick stuff up if the obstructions are too low? (but high enough to reach under the bumper and scrape the paint off.) And I was just getting comfy relying on it.

parking sensor or not, I reversed too quickly in a car park and bumped another car. 2,500 excess wasn't a good idea after all.

There wasn't a queue at McDonalds so I didn't have time to chose what to eat.

How many devices can you possibly have / need a connection in tandem?

Can't you set up some bridging / tethering?

Yay, nay, maybe... but a question is a question. I'll plead curiosity, not having a go at the author.

Not getting a simple answer to a simple question... hey, now there's a FWP...

Your question rebuttal was:
- typically engineering
- old school

The simple answer is: he needs more.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

On Sunrise, when you order a new sim card, it does it immediately. When you suddenly realise that you ordered it for the wrong number on the account... there's no cancel!

I'll give them a call tomorrow... doh!
