Oh well, just think about how you'd like potentially to scream, plead and knock some common sense into most of us instead.
Gloria masses are usually quite cheerful...in joyous spirit.I think that kind of frustration you are talking about come handy more for Requiem and Stabat Mater.

You guys are a nice bunch, though. No stress. Not boring. Not too much common sense, thankfully.

There is an overwhelming choice of breakfast cereal in the large Carrefour supermarket in France but do they sell bog standard plain Weetabix? No of course the don't. The only Weetabix they have is the chocolate one.

Clearly BMW X3 2011 looks better and is probably lower in road tax too.

I can't decide whether to go for a massage or get a haircut during my lunch break... or just get lunch

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I realised I was getting a bit wide at the seams because of too much knitting.

I put the needles down, got my walking shoes on and it started to rain.

I don't think the knitting ladies care about my well padded arse...
