Goodness, I'm going to report you to the Daily Mail, sign you-up for Jeremy Kyle, and then escalate it to social services (at least this is what's expected if I follow (and am potentially addicted to) UK media from here over the years.

With such a transient up-bringing, according to other on-going threads, they obviously need a stabile upbringing here .
Clearly parenting was never for me..

After canine tummy troubles meant CHF 500 to clean my silk carpets - twice - the carpets have been in storage for 10 years and 5 dogs now.

(initial set-up cost of said 5 dogs together was well under 3000 though. Running costs, on the other hand... )

I have kids and don't have a carpet, nor a life

Remember the saying/decision: get a dog and ruin your carpets or have a child and ruin your life

No kids, no dog, no carpet. The money just keeps piling up in my bank account and I don't know what to spend it on.

Now that's a proper FWP.

If you insist on the gate you might be dragged off the plane.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I have a kid, a dog, and a carpet. The dog is not the same colour as the carpet. I do therefore have a kick-arse hoover.

Some ideas
  1. Buy shoes
  2. Take holidays during school terms
  3. Go to restaurants
  4. Vote Corbyn

The parking is gonna eat up all your money - so better just rent one.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

As people post on my Facebook timeline on my birthday, I like to be kind and like their post and thank them. I did this for the first couple early in the morning, but since I am a teacher with too much to do during the entire long day, I pushed back writing thank yous until after the day was finished.

I got home on my birthday at 10pm. No, I did not have a drink that evening... I said, 'work'. Too tired to write any replies. Ditto in the morning before work the next day (today).

Just did all the thank yous now. I wrote 79 replies, written across five different languages. Took me a good chunk of time. Not sleeping on time tonight...
