Along those lines, I had stomach flu just before Christmas, had lost 3 kilos ...
I found those 3kg that you lost - they seem to have appeared on my bottom...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I got an insulated travel mug for my commute to work.
The problem is it works too well, my coffee isn't cool enough to drink until I get to work

Spent two weeks at my parents and now my 5 year old 42'' TV, which I was quite happy with before, looks like a sea of grey (instead of black) pixels

We went chateau shopping in central France last weekend and every single one that I really liked was already owned by the republique. I am so discouraged.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

bloody cablecom box is broken again so I cannot use my 55" plasma TV. Now I have to go down to the basement and fire up my home theatre and use my sky box to watch the EPL but the 100" screen means I will get a head and neck ache trying to follow the football, and the fridge is too far upstairs so no beers until halftime. Damn cablecom!

I have no idea why someone would use cablecom when they have access to sky!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I have to use the balcony as a fridge, as our three four fridges and stand alone freezer simply aren't enough for the two of us!

I struggle keeping my chilled salad fork chilled after I take it out of the fridge.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

While planning the 2014 annual family vacation, we are questioning whether or not an 18-month-old grandchild will truly appreciate everything an African safari has to offer. It's a dilemma, I tell you.

Make sure you book an airline that allows infants in the lounge. Not all airlines do.
