stupid first world problems you're dealing with

Just finished spreading three 60 lb (27 kg) bags of traction sand down on my ice rink of a driveway, but it was only enough to cover half. It's a long-ass driveway.

Also finished downloading XCOM 2 but I'm too tired to play. Early phases of old man syndrome innit

I finally said yes to some automatic update my phone kept harassing me about, and the update proceeded to rapidly eat up all my allotted monthly data and then some. I didn't realize this was happening until it was almost halfway down the (gigantic) download. Then I had no idea how the fuck to cancel it, so after X seconds that seemed like an eternity buggering around, I shut it off, thinking that would kill it. But as soon as I turned it back on it immediately resumed the update download. So now I'm afraid to turn on my phone as I know it will lead to more data usage charged up the ass. I emailed my phone people explaining the situation, and requested this data rapeage be stricken from my record. I figure since phone companies like to keep their customers, they will acquiesce. But I kind of need to use my phone in the morning... so I hope they hurry the hell up with their response.

Got another one now.

 

I'm having an argument/debate about immigration/refugees with a work colleague who is spouting the usual unthinking right-wing rhetoric (there's not enough room in the country, they'll take all the jobs benefits etc)

 

This guy is from Mauritius. I, of course, had to point this out.

He, of course, insisted this is different.

Most things I want for my new apartment on the Ikea website aren't able to be shipped. I actually have to go to the physical store :dry:

Don't buy ikea furniture and save yourself a future fwp.

Some of their stuff is alright. I've got a few shelving units for vinyl and CDS etc and they're actually fairly sturdy and were cheap.

 

Overall though I'm sure you're right =P

all the shelving/desks we've bought from there were fine. my "studio" desk is a bit flimsy i guess. would never buy any seating/bedding from there tho. couch died after like 3 years and have seen friend's beds die in <1 yr

I started playing Candy Crush and I can't stop. Also, two of the three movies I rented are terrible. The other is the first Harry Potter (never seen any of them), and while i can appreciate it, I'm not really in the right mood for a kid's movie. It seems to be like the younger generation's equivalent to Star Wars, which is really hard for me to process.

bass response in the right ear of my Sennheiser HD380s is dying. at first I thought my right ear was clogged or something. it sucks cos bass was awesome on these without sacrificing any clarity.

 

Sennheiser has really disappointed me in the durability/longevity department with the last few sets I've bought from them. time to switch to another brand.

Used to be a sucka for Sennheiser myself, but the last set I used I think it was the right channel that suddenly stopped working.

 

Just came across this site tho, might be a helpful guide for your next set: http://headphonescompared.com/the-best-headphone-brands-from-worst-to-best/

lol immigrants do seem to have a special sort of hatred for other immigrants.

 

I had a chat the other day with a guy from Mexico (I think, I forgot) and he kept telling me how much he liked the United States when he was there, then he went on about how "the blacks there are different to the blacks here" (in Germany), but wasn't really able to explain to me what he meant by that. Eventually he started singing praises for his host family who were "real whites" as he put it, and I still didn't get what he was on about and thought he was making a joke. Friends told me later how much they disliked the guy because of his constant racist remarks and I felt like an idiot.
