I'm pretty sure there are relief agencies to help with this.

I've been training by remembering laps, and using the chronograph on my Timex ironman because my Garmin fenix 3 is still on preorder.

To top that off, it was too cold to ride my KTM 1190 R for longer than 10min on Friday, so I had to take my wife's Lexus to my hair appt. It was dirty, and the line at the car wash was10min long. THEN I get home, and I see the kids towel drying the car did a half ass job on the wheels.

Damnit!

You can't mess about when it comes to wheels like that. You better trade that thing in before the value drops any further.

and your stylist should have anticipated your needs and done a house call. You've got some shopping to do.

!. New Lexus -

2. New and more considerate/needs sensitive hair stylist -

3. Don't jack around with weather, you need to get a "weather day" Lexus. -

4. You probably shouldn't trust your training to the antiquated electronics in that Timex. Better hit the Rolex dealer on the way home from Lexus and pick up a Daytona.

I was only able to afford the $8000 bike instead of the $10000 one! My bike bike time is sure to suffer 3,maybe 4 seconds.

Sometimes, the fan in my wine refrigerator makes an annoying hum... (And is that even what it's called -- wine refrigerator? wine fridge? wine cooler?)

The new Scuba Dive Computer watch I just ordered off the internet... has a thumbprint on the INSIDE of the watch face glass!  It's a brand new computer!  how does this happen?  The company offered to replace it for free- but, I want to use it this weekend on my scuba diving vacation.

I just ordered a fancy bike travel case (via the informal "bike shop express" service from Taiwan) and it's only currently available in red and blue. II ordered red, but really wanted black so it doesn't show dirt and grease.. (I guess it does match the bike, and red is fast, but does one really want a fast CASE?)

Also, I just spent way too much money extending my gym membership for three weeks because I can't deal with not having access to a pool. (School facility set to close sometime in next few weeks, so I'll be without it for at least a week and possibly 2-3.) Not just for training purposes. I'm an FOP swimmer for my AG, six or seven weeks out from next race, and in reality nothing catastrophic's going to happen if I take 2-3 weeks off swimming. But if I'm hot and sore from running/biking, I need my pool! Plus I really like their showers. (I don't always have decent water pressure/hot water at home...Okay, I realize the latter's NOT a first-world problem.)

I've more tools than will fit in my fairly large woodworking shop.  It is a problem.

I just ordered a custom made sleeping bag from England. Not only do I have to pay for shipping and insurance to have it sent to the US, but it will take 3-4 weeks to be made and shipped. At which time I will be out of town on a 2 week vacation. And since I will be out of town, it will be held at the post office, which means I will have to drive over there to pick it up.

"I have so much cash that it won't all fit in my wallet"

I'm sitting on the back of my boat reading about Crazy Uncle Jamie's fat wallet problem.

Haha! Perfect timing. I actually just went to the bank this morning to get rid of the excess of cash I had in there. Now take me for a ride on your boat so we can complain about more stuff.

That reminds me of when I bought my tri bike last year. It was secondhand (on consignment at a small bike shop) and they couldn't do a credit card transaction. I hadn't brought much extra cash as actually I was just killing time while my cat had minor surgery at the vet's (who takes credit cards). It's way on the other side of town from where I live, so didn't want to make another trip, and a weekend so no bank where I could withdraw USD. So I had to go to an ATM and bring back wads and wads of dong. Even used, a Cervelo P2 is a very goodly pile of dong. (Largest bill is 500,000 dong or not quite $25, but the ATM ran out of those after a few million, and we were down to 100,000 dong notes.)

So visualize toting enough $$$$ for a tri bike in $5 bills. It had a kind of Mafioso feel to it.

Not exactly a first world problem (the first world would have credit card machines, or at least bigger bills), but buying the bike in the first place should qualify.

I spent Memorial Day weekend painting the spare room.... the 4th spare room in a house occupied by two people (Hey, it was cheaper than any house half the size though).

My kids finally burned through our ceramic fire pit and now they want me to build them one out of stone that's bigger.  I can't decide if I want to work that hard or just buy another ceramic one.

Once I get through that, I've got to finish putting together an alligator hunting trip that my twin daughters have been pestering me about for 2 years.  I'm pretty much down to deciding whether to drive or fly down to Tampa.  I don't think I can handle 16 hours in a car with those two.

For most people, there is a story in how they came to the sport as beginners. Some of the most inspiring of those beginner tales begin with health scares.
