When you're trying to eat, and your human has lost her mind and is staring at the camera pretending to be a duck.

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
I bought a ticket on a dicks out airline (oops a discount airline) I paid online for airport check in as well as one carry on and a checked bag. Got to the airport with nothing showing what I had paid for. At the check in counter they said i had to pay $12.00 for airport check in and that my reservation was for only one bag. So the cost of my flight doubled because i had no proof of what I had paid for! Viva Colombia Aerlinea if any one wishes to know.

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
I realize pointing out the flaws of the US medical system is trendy these days, and I realize my own individual experience does not necessarily reflect that of the average person, but...

Holy Censored , dealing with the medical system in Canada can be a pain in the ass sometimes.

In active duty US military, I paid no state income tax and I had full coverage at no extra cost and what I considered quality service. In China I had no insurance, but medical care was so dirt cheap it rarely mattered. Working at Mandalay Bay in Vegas, I paid no state income tax and had full coverage and they even brought dentists on site. In the National Guard, I had to pay a very small amout for Tricare Reserve Select and their associated dental option, but had exceptional coverage. In Canada, as a fixed term employee of the Ontario government (part time, on call, but nonetheless working 48 to 90 hours per week), I'm taxed up the ass and also pay about $400 per month despite having "free" health care for the supplementary coverage (prescriptions, vision, dental, etc.) and have to wait a few months for an appointment with a doctor who basically just tells me to schedule an appointment with a specialist in 4 months.

People who work in a field that depends heavily on radio communications (i.e. first responders) but don't know how to properly use a radio. I spent all Censored ing day trying to coordinate with someone who seemed incapable of understanding that you have to wait a half second after keying a radio before it starts transmitting, and I therefore and to guess based on context what I thought they were probably trying to say. Not an ideal situation when simple errors have major consequences :/

Sweet holy fuck. I mean, I didn't know that either, but my job doesn't depend on radio communication. Now being informed of that, it would be as simple as saying 'one one-thousand' in your head after every time you push the call button before you start speaking. It's that simple. I can understand why dealing with someone else not getting that would be very frustrating.

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
Trying to work on departmental laptop...laptop is not the best. So first I tried to go to a conference room and use it. While only running a podcast and PowerPoint, it was enough to make it completely freeze up to the point CTRL+ALT+DEL wouldn't work. Can't wait to have to use it again this Fall in my classes because glorious GOP budget isn't enough for every classroom to have a desktop! (Seriously, last semester if I showed a YouTube clip, or brought up an article to discuss in Firefox or Chrome, it was enough to crash PowerPoint...there were days I just lectured without my slides and wrote on the board; much to my students' amazement actually. They'd never had a prof not in a math class do that, according to one.)

Had to move the young, fragile agave inside because it's raining too much.

The other day I was down the rabbit hole of Christian board games on Amazon while talking to a friend. Now every ad on my FB feed is for stuff like "Children's Bible Trivia Game" and "Bibleopoly".

Not mine, but was joking with a Canadian friend and he was getting so upset. His phone kept auto-correcting "Timbits" to "tomboys".

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
My wife & I just got back from the casino (first time we've gone there in probably 2 years).

After I lost my money (I always lose first) I went to look for my wife...

Just gotta say...looking for a small Asian women wearing a red shirt...in a casino...on Canada day...is like looking for your favourite bit of hay... in a giant fucking haystack... Tongue

...I just hope I brought the right one home.... Big Grin
