Re: The First World Problem Thread

Having soft close cupboards at home makes me look like an angry arsehole whenever I visit my mum's

My OH, and both of his brothers, leave all the cupboard doors and drawers open in their kitchens. Their mother says "It's a disease".

A huge one.

The recipe for happiness: A)Someone to love, B)something to do, C) something to look forward to.

Sobeit has just been deprived of C) by virtue of having been served the perfect cup of tea, so anticipation of that is now gone. Presumably, C) was served by some form of A) who has now paradoxically reduced Sobeit's level of happiness, which eliminates A) as A).

Cheer up Sobeit, at least you still have EF.

Articulately put JayWaugh. : -)

I’m happy - contrary to your thoughts. Maybe the perfect cup of tea wasn’t so perfect.

Awww, man!
Somehow I forgot to eat today. And shopping doesn't seem to be in fashion anymore either. So I wish I had your problem right now.
The fact is I let the prehistoric peanut size part of my bottom back brain over rule all logical thinking jeopardizing the essence of my first world existence.

You should set the ring tone to sound like a round of applause. It'll give you a sense of achievement while you are on the throne.

I really fancy some squirty cheese in a can, and all we have in the fridge is gruyere and emmentaler.

Is she paying for it? Cuz it's not cheap. Tell her she can have all your cash, or she can get you as a diamond but only if she pays.

She's taking the whole "A Diamond is a girl's best friend" a tad too literally.

I've told her she can do one! There's no effing way I'm being a diamond ring when she goes to the bathroom. I'm going off the back of the Blue Star ferry from Santorini to Piraeus at sunset.
