Re: The First World Problem Thread

It goes without saying, if it's cold don't stick it in the fridge.

I have just given myself a sneezing attack from mosquito repellent spray which is basically my summer perfume.

I was feeling so low just now that I opened a packet of peanut saturated Flips, in the hope of reliving cheese Wotsits. It can only be downhill from now, and I feel completely disgusted with myself.

My nose was cold last night. Camping at 8 degrees, I think my bikini stays packed this trip.

Even when things are going well, Peanut Flips just make them worse. If you start at a low and add Flips then you'll need some form of antidote. I suggest a crisp butty with butter and Salt and Vinegar crisps, followed by a couple of Mars bars or a Magnum or three.

Once your system has passed the toxins from the flips you'll be fine. Maltesers may speed the process somewhat

Surely camping is a Third World Problem? Nobody in the First World should be forced to endure that sort of misery.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I can't book my holiday flights for the end of the year because work (a) won't make it clear when we are off the hook at the end of the year, and (b) isn't giving me any indications whether I'll still have a job at the end of the year.

Meanwhile, the award seats* are quickly evaporating...


* award seats are the limited seats made available by the airlines - particularly in First and Business Class - which are payable with frequent flyer points / miles

Yup.
The Flips, crisp butty with butter and Salt and Vinegar crisps, followed by a couple of Mars bars or a Magnum or three.
The Maltesers are still disolving.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I shouldn't have had so much prosecco with lunch: I have a mild hangover at just gone 8 pm. Am seeing if a G and T will rectify the situation. For science.
