This chocolate bar is so packed with hazelnuts, it won't break cleanly along the designated lines.

I like that kind. Usually means I get to eat more of the bar than planned as it doesn't break where I figured I'd stop eating it.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The French postal system advertises the postman popping in on your elderly parent to make sure they haven't died in the night. Postmen are obviously getting very social & varied in their work now. Ours is quite cute. I wouldn't mind him soaping me in the shower but he would need psychiatric help afterwards .

Re: The First World Problem Thread

It's a bit hot in my attic. If I open both windows it creates a breeze but this in turn knocks some papers off my table.

It's really really hard to get the right level of open window to breeze ratio without having to pick up papers off the floor. As if I didn't have enough things to worry about already.

In my publishing meeting, a colleague argued against my viewpoint with panache, incomparable wit and effervescent charm... What a jerk.

Something keeps dribbling from the tree on my laptop. You can't see it but feel it on the mouse-pad and it drives me friggin' crazy! I'm on my way to become a cleaning maniac.
