Re: The First World Problem Thread

We went to see the Wolf of Wall Street last night and it was awful.

I finished my popcorn and Ice cream before the film started

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.
I have a perfectly lovely park next to my place where dogs are allowed to run free, but it's also the place where people can bring their compost.

And my puppy EATS the compost each time I try to bring him there...

where i take my compost to be recycled, its in skip with a little step ladder so people can get up and drop things in, i'm dreading my dogs will work out how to use the stepladder giving them full access to a full triple wide skip of kitchen waste, its only a matter of time..

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Why bloody Ikea curtains are sold in 3m length only? Takes forever to put on hooks, measure right length, iron plastic strip and fix it up

My FWP is why oh why my bh decided to buy them at all.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I had a shower and left my towel on my head then fell asleep watching a film. Now my hair has dried in a weird way and I don't know how I'm going to leave the house tomorrow.

Some of my best experimental hairdos originate from me falling asleep with wet hair and waking up with something unexpected hanging from my scalp. But I suppose my version of this problem would be that whenever something amazing has emerged this way, I have never been able to replicate the result.

I'm having trouble finding a food bank or charity to donate my canned goods and other grocery items to. One charity graciously said they would accept the 'better quality' wines from my cellar, though.
