Re: The First World Problem Thread

The sun is blazing in through the windows which is making the room really warm which means I have to open the windows which means that my super fantastic underfloor heating is now serving to heat up the garden.
What's wrong with an electric two bar heater in the corner of the room that we can all huddle round when it gets cold. At least I could turn that off if it got sunny and I'd get to wear my winter woollies.

Last night, I was forced to make beef bourguignon with a new world red.
Pfft, I had to use a Pinot Noir last time.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I hate that cold water comes out of my shower head at least 0.5 seconds before it gets to a comfortable temperature.

I bought way too much food and and ate too much of it over xmas and now my personal trainer calls me a fatti fatti bum bum.

I don't know how to do a Windsor knot!!

It always takes me at least 10 minutes to choose an airplane seat - today even 15 minutes. So much variables to consider!

I recently had to decide between a Macbook Air 11 or 13"

Why can't Apple make a 12"?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I can't believe there are no screen protectors available yet in the Apple store for the new Ipad Air...

All the weight I gained due to overeating during Christmas I recently lost because of stomach flu... Nobody will believe me now if I brag about eating abundantly over the holidays...

Along those lines, I had stomach flu just before Christmas, had lost 3 kilos but put all of them back during Christmas and an extra 3!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Yesterday I had to wait an extra 15 minutes for my husband to arrive at the office to drive me home (now he drives me to and from work as I am almost 8 months pregnant and find the walk to and from the train station too much in this cold and dark time of the year). Anyway, 15 minutes! I even had to do some more work whilst waiting for him to turn up.

Forgot to run a wash with fabric softener and now I've got over-clingy pyjamas.
