I think you'll all agree a first world problem does'nt get much worse than this!

US govt secretly spies on every one in the world for the last 10+ years - a couple of threads with a few comments last year

dog off its leash - hundreds of comments in many threads, almost every week, year after year, the latest thread, 7 soon to be 7+ pages long
You still young in here...

You should have seen the hysteria over brown sugar... THAT is what I call FWP.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

i've noticed hygiene standards in the first world are really slipping,
hardly anyone brushes their teeth before they kiss their dog on the nose

Re: The First World Problem Thread

i think some of you in the first world will recognise the deep divide between dog nose kissers and non dog nose kissers,

i thought perhaps i could bring the two sides closer together with the benefit of my many years of experience and share this short tutorial on how you can safely and enjoyably kiss your dogs nose.

very safe - brush your teeth before you kiss your dogs nose

safe - use your thumb to gently wipe* the imaginary aids virus, polio, cholera, diphtheria or denghi fever germs from your dogs nose, kiss your dogs nose

safe - you could do what i do when i think someone is watching, kiss your dogs nose and then wipe your mouth

perfectly safe - take a short break and kiss your dogs nose, tell her how wonderful she is and how much you love her, carry on with your daily activities. this one has worked for me for years

not safe - bypass your dogs nose and go directly to another dogs butt and kiss it. do not do this. this is not safe.

* do not scrub your dogs nose with a brush

ps. if you notice a salty aftertaste after you have kissed your dogs nose, you will need to try harder to stop your dog from eating poop on its walks or stop feeding it junk food.

a video of many happy dog nose kissers

Re: The First World Problem Thread

A good friend of mine has damaged her spine in a skiing accident and now I have to do some food shopping for her.

In a poorer country they would have just left her to die, and I wouldn't need to waste my time like this.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I took up their offer to super-size my fries and drink but I didn't like the look the server gave me.

They should train them not to look so judgemental

I assume she broke her neck and can't order things for herself online...... so lazy.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Had a sort of stabbing feeling in my left boob this morning.
Turns out I'd dropped toast crumbs inside my bra at breakfast.

When traveling overseas don't let your first world problems become first world problems.
