Re: The First World Problem Thread

My 13 year old says that she is presently not in the "cool girls" club because she doesn't have the latest emoji on her iphone!
And she doesn't have the latest 3-stripe shoes.

And apparently it is all my fault.

Just tell her that she is in the Coolest EF News! That should fix it. And don't forget to add "You are welcome"

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Thanks to a world renowned international watch and jewelry exhibition, it took me an extra 10 minutes to drive into Basel this morning.

Maybe the argument is that they got on really too well and whether you'll pay maternity AND paternity leave

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Snippet from email from Little Rufus' playgroup: "...and grapes should be cut into quarters lengthways."

I'm now left wondering which way is lengthways on a grape. Not to mention how I'm going to get my kid to eat her favourite fruit in bits when... she likes 'em, well, more grape like.

I went to the loo when my Thanks count was at 39 999 and when I came back it was 40 001.

I'd been waiting months to watch it turn.

Were those two thanks for going to the loo, or for stepping away from your computer?

All the effort that goes into making a grape and they want to cut it, lengthways?! It's not right..

First world problem? I cannot stop putting things in my shopping cart, and the prices do not mean anything anymore.
