Re: I smiled because...

we are hosting an exchange student from Germany for a month, and on a weekend road trip our oldest son did nothing but request the absolute worst schlager he could find on my iPod. that and a solid dose of Trio Eugster made the long drive remarkably entertaining.

Re: I smiled because...

The letter I wrote for a friend resulted in the bus company cancelling the 120chf fine the inspector had given their 8 year old son.

Not sure the inspector will be smiling though if he gets a bollocking because of the complaint. He deserved it though , chucking an 8 year old who doesn't speak the language very well yet off the bus 7 stops from home because his multi trip ticket was creased and he couldn't get it in the stamping machine and giving him a 120chf fine was over the top in my opinion.

Re: I smiled because...

Today I smiled because I just realized I've been walking around with couscous stuck to my forehead for about 20 minutes.

Maybe I should put that into the first world problems thread

Re: I smiled because...

Yesterday I smiled to myself......when I bumped into one of the local residents of the apartment block next to ours (know him through talking to him when he walks his dog, he's got a nice dog...) anyway had to smile when he asks me if I work at Glencore...
