Better than standing lost in the kitchen and shouting "Honey, where do you keep the water?"
True. The "honey" would be very annoying.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The cafeteria of a company I am visiting only has sushi rolls with white rice (not brown rice).

But they have someone making freshly-squeezed juices.

We brought our own kettle popcorn to a festival movie last night and the bag was half empty. Since when there's so little popcorn to pop?? Meh.

We received Cadbury's easter eggs - and after eating one of them I'm not sure I want to eat anymore. Especially with over a kilo of Lindt in the cupboard.
