Putting your clothes in the fridge isn't a first world problem.... that's just weird.

I just went to make myself an espresso at work and used a damn decaffeinated capsule by mistake.

Lat night I was having wine and water with dinner and at one point I poured wine in the water glass which was still half full.

Then you should move to Canadian Prairies where it is -40°F/C or to Chicago J/K

Re: The First World Problem Thread

A first world problem:

- Too many leaflets / advertising / Reklame in the letterbox
=> Too much paper is being wasted, bad for environment

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My first world issue in Switzerland is that the BSL airport is not included in most VIP lounge access programmes except for Priority Pass and Star Alliance Gold members.

Furthermore, I feel that the leg room in the first class section of SBB trains could be roomy as if you're sitting opposite fellow passengers, legs could easily touch unless you bend them at steep angle.

And the SBB lounge in Zurich should have some snacks instead of just drinks.

Same here. I'm at that incomfortable stage where my normal pants are too tight but the pregnancy ones are too big yet.

And I don't even really look pregnant yet, I just look like I ate too much Xmas chocolate...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I have a new Swiss neighbour upstairs who just moved in and made himself comfortable. Every other night he has a vivid conversation with another young man, till about 3 a.m.
Now, it is not that loud and it shouldn't really bother me if I was less of a light sleeper, but they wake me up....and I am pissed because I can't understand what are they talking about.

Oh, and I have another Problem: should I write a passive-agressive letter to them or complain to the house management.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

my freezer door handle broke off a year ago. The wooden spoon wedging the door closed is ineffective as it caused an iceberg to form in the freezer.

so I've had to resort to superglueing the door closed. However will I get my iced lollies out of it now, though?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Was expecting delivery of new bed at 9.00 am this morning. House is a mess - SO annoying when they actually turned up at 9.00 am. sharp!! Come on, cut a poor house mum some slack, will you? - Don't they know they are supposed to be late like in the rest of the world?

Couldn't even take it out on them properly, as they were so polite, took their shoes off, carefully carried the bed all the way up into the bed room, took away all the emballage with them and tidied up needly! Doesn't make it easy to be annoyed, now does it?!

Now I have to take it out on my husband instead, hmpf!

...Jeez, need a soothing drink at the pool to calm down this upsetting morning...Life is not meant to be easy, for sure
