Re: The First World Problem Thread

There was an accident eastbound on the A1 this morning... so I had to take the scenic country road instead

I can't open the free dog poop bags. They stick together.
Oh, dude. They're supposed to stay tied. That's just sick.

I was unclear. To open them first in order to insert the poop.

Where did you get Nik Naks from?

I want Nik Naks.
Nik Naks - the greatest snack on earth!
All the way from South Africa!

I`ve eaten every type of crisp/chip in Canton Zurich - seeking something really crispy/crunchy/tasty - but nothing tastes like Nik Naks!

I feel seriously deprived when I have to eat these fine-cut-paprika-flavoured-"nothings" ..... or wedgy tortilla crispy things ......or those melt-in-your-mouth-puff-ball things!

Why can`t Switzerland merely import Nik Naks for us?

And Cadbury chocolates! .... Peppermint crisps, Crunchies, Lunch Bars?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I don't want to have salmon for dinner any more.

I would like to do yoga but it is too far from Zug to Baar.

Not sure if I should buy earrings or necklaces because I often lose jewelry and I don't even like wearing jewelry so much.

It is a problem not to buy on sales this month because I have everything I need and it makes me feel like I'm missing out.

I want to buy red summertime bag but I don't know which shade of red will be better, tomato red, coral red or Valentino red.

When I get this bag I don't know if I will be able to find nice matching shoes.

SPA is boring and my skin gets too dry and itchy after spending so many hours in the water.

It is a problem when I have to buy wine and bring it home because I would rather have it delivered to my house.

I think I am slowly gaining weight again.

Hehe, your first world problem is a lack of third world snacks? I better bring a bunch with me then, I'll make a killing! Niks Naks are fantastic though, and you can always spot the guilty party who's been munching on them because their fingers are orange!

Someone has borrowed my post-it note block and pulled the backing paper off, leaving the last post-it note to get fluff and dust stuck to it. FFS my day is ruined!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I keep getting tons of "Last chance, everything 70% off!" emails from various shops and websites. But I don't need anything..
Even worse, I don't even want anything.
