The Pizza box doesn't fit into the fridge.
But surely one gets one's cook to make fresh pizzas...if one must eat such peasant fare when caviar is so readily available as a quick snack.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I was filling my water bottle for skiing from the tap in my kitchen just now, and I had to run the tap loads before the water coming through was cool enough to be refreshing. I had to stand there the whole time why can't they make taps start at the the right I want??? Blimmin' running water.

Arrange them by color. I am currently redecorating someone's place and to get rid of this messy look, I rearrange them by color and the person loves the result.

Mix and match the length.

this makes me laugh,
i had all my books arranged by country, i have lots of biographies from people from different cultures.

when my german mother visited she rearranged them all by height.. so they looked more in ordenung

It really is a first world problem how to arrange your library.

We've just moved house and this is a very relevant problem for us at the moment as our antiquarian collection has outgrown its glass-fronted cabinet and we've had to ditch several of our bookcases as they won't fit into our 170 - 180 cm high rooms.

Non-fiction is fine, as we can just arrange it by subject on the long shelves in the library, but fiction might be a problem as we simply don't have the shelf space anymore. We used to organise novels alphabetically by author but now... well, I suppose colour is as good a criterion as any...

It might be a first world problem, but it's a real problem! Illiterate people have no idea how lucky they are!
