Have to travel to South Africa in the New Year to visit a client. Requested BA Premium Economy. Unfortunately that violated the client's (who's picking up the tab) travel policy so I have to go Virgin Upper Class instead.



Could be me flying you!

I went to grind some pepper on my lunch today and the grinder's batteries were flat. I had to, sorry - it hurts to say this, put ready ground, WHITE pepper on instead.

I went for a bite to eat with my sister-from-Australia this evening.  The first two pubs we tried didn't serve food in the evening.   Fortunately the town is rammed with restaurants so it wasn't as bad as it could have been. And I'd had a big lunch.

I think so, as the sea salt has run out as well...

Sounds a bit like our travel policy.  If the flight is over X hours then the minimum class is Business.

Oh citoyen, the relentless vicissitudes that you must suffer.

For my part, the spring clip has broken from the back of my MP3 player and I can no longer attach it to my clothing, reducing its convenience considerably.

The frustration is overwhelming.

Quilted paper is a First-World problem all of its own. Like TV Dinner Trays.

They're out of sync.  Flip the outer layer round the roll and they should meet up again.

Doesn't work for a bad case.

As if any case of toilet roll asynchronousity is bad compared to third world problems of not even having decent toilets, let alone luxury toiler paper.  ::-)
