yes they are a law unto themselves, i know what would happen if i turned up an hour early or an hour late for an interview

Re: The First World Problem Thread

dog off leash, i'm going to tell him I'm going to report him.

dog nose kissing, I'm sure he didn't thoroughly scrub Brians nose, so we can only hope he doesn't get limpopo sleeping sickness, kuru disease or ms.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I flew home from London today with Swiss, but due to technical issues our original Airbus A320 plane was replaced with a Helvetica Fokker 100. Call me fussy, but I didn't pay Swiss prices to fly in a cramped, accident-prone, 20 year old aircraft with a name that sounds like an Irish Cuss word

Aaah!

I joined the first world problem with cleaners since my shoulder surgery. I won't be that lucky back in Switzerland.

Don't apologize for being lucky about something, you needed help because of your surgery.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

now that I've learned a bit more about first world problems i have renamed these days 'insubordination saturdays' and 'scandalous sundays'

not only do i let my girls off their leashes on these days but i also take their collars off so they look even more like the ex-street-girls that they are

i particularly like to watch my 70 pounder up on her hind legs peeking into a bin

who doesn't like to watch a wild animal in its natural state.
