I woke up this morning because the birds outside were singing too loud.

All the dishes in the dishwasher are dirty, so I had to eat my dinner off a Tupperware lid.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

it just gets worse and worse

not only is this stuff all natural

it also does not give me spots (even in the quantities I've been eating it)

there is no 'stop' button

I was pulled over for speeding today, it was so embarrassing I had to ask the officer to hold my phone, coffee and electric razor whilst I searched for my licence.

The coffee machine wouldn't accept any of my coins because they've made the coffee free.
It gets worse. They changed the machine, now I have to choose between free normal coffees, free milk based coffees and free chocolate based drinks, and choose what kind of coffee beans to use. This can involve up to three extra button presses.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The blue string on the garbage bag broke whilst tying a knot.

In this age of wind tunnels and fluid dynamics can't some geek in California invent a friggin' piece of string that allows 0.5lbs of pressure before simply caving in and giving up its molecular structure?

This is not a first world problem.
It would be a first world problem if you can only choose between 3 kinds of milk and 7 kinds of coffee beans

OMG! That's a good point. If I can get my latte at work, I'm less likely to go to Starbucks.

I may struggle to keep my Starbucks Gold Card

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Now we've got our own washing machine I'm no longer motivated to do the washing by the prospect of waiting another fortnight to have access to the laundry room... which means I never get round to doing it at all.

I replaced my 'giant' global wall map following the Independence of South Sudan, but now it looks like I'll need another once Crimea joins the Russian Federation

I swear Map companies are behind all this political turmoil

Oh come on, all you need are 60 more posts. Surely you can greet a few newbies and ask if stuff is still available in the Marketplace?

Scrap the paper. You just need a big flat screen and an internet connection.

Bloody dinosaur.

They shouldn't have been allowed to call it a ball cleaner though.

Mine are still sore (and no cleaner)
