My dog snores loudly.

My puppy snores, burps, farts, regularly has the hiccup and cries at night when he feels lonely

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I bought a Belkin cable for the phone and found their logo is underneath.
I can either put the phone face down so that anyone who might wander by can see I have a Belkin cable or face up so they can see the hotness of my phone...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I had to buy a replacement inhaler for the Belltie - and the price in Switzerland was over twice what I paid back home. I was going to grumble on the 'Swiss Prices' thread...


...but then realized that anything pertaining to using an inhaler designed for canines is... erm... pretty much the definition of a first world problem.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Except that the twice-as-expensive-here-as-in-the-rest-of-the-world product is designed and made in Canada.

(I imagine that little sticker reading 'distributed in Switzerland by...' added significantly to the product's excellency and superiority, though. )

But back to first world problems...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Today I ate a Berliner (jelly donut) in my car. I took the first bite, and a bunch of jelly shot right up into my nose.

I had no napkins, so I had to blow my nose in one of my son's spare diapers, which I keep in the glove box. While doing so, I looked over at the car next to me to see two really hot guys staring at me, laughing.

I really must have done some strange things in a past life to deserve this kind of karma...

I cannot leave the bathtub without rinsing off until the bath foam fades away. It takes very long time but good news is that I can still read EF's posts on my iPhone while waiting for this phenomenon

Re: The First World Problem Thread

For some reason, in one city the 4* hotel of the chain is more expensive than same chain's 5*. I would normally book the 5*, of course, but now I'm worried that there's something wrong with it. More expensive must be better, right?
