Nik Naks - the greatest snack on earth!
All the way from South Africa!

I`ve eaten every type of crisp/chip in Canton Zurich - seeking something really crispy/crunchy/tasty - but nothing tastes like Nik Naks!

I feel seriously deprived when I have to eat these fine-cut-paprika-flavoured-"nothings" ..... or wedgy tortilla crispy things ......or those melt-in-your-mouth-puff-ball things!

Why can`t Switzerland merely import Nik Naks for us?

And Cadbury chocolates! .... Peppermint crisps, Crunchies, Lunch Bars?
Hehe, your first world problem is a lack of third world snacks? I better bring a bunch with me then, I'll make a killing! Niks Naks are fantastic though, and you can always spot the guilty party who's been munching on them because their fingers are orange!

Someone has borrowed my post-it note block and pulled the backing paper off, leaving the last post-it note to get fluff and dust stuck to it. FFS my day is ruined!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I keep getting tons of "Last chance, everything 70% off!" emails from various shops and websites. But I don't need anything..
Even worse, I don't even want anything.

Every time we have fish for dinner I realize we do not have fish knives. And in between I never remember to buy any.

Please do not judge me....

Should I go to work or should I do home office tomorrow?



Home (heads), office (tails) ...

When I flip a coin, I always pick heads

I missed the tram.

Now I have to wait SIX whole minutes until the next one arrives.
Ha! I've said that so many times.

Except I often have to wait SEVEN minutes!!!
