Next up: a complaints thread that someone broke into your car and stole your tic tacs but left your handbag and the money in it.

It's too breezy to wear a t-shirt and too sunny and warm to wear a sweater. Thanks, Obama.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The sun is shining but I`m wearing a jersey and jeans and going outside means I have to change my clothes! And if I change my clothes, I can`t even work in the garden because I pulled out all the weeds yesterday, and the sun is too hot to lie on my deckchair. Life can be so frustrating.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

There is a huge carton box in the garden to put in the trash but I can't because the kids and the cat have too much fun with it. But they don't care about the play house...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Sometimes when i shop in coop or denner i mix paper shopping bag and my Prada bag when walking back home. So I catch myself wearing bright red paper denner bag on my forearm in front of me and my beautiful handbag almost hidden with my other hand straight along the body. It must look idiotic.

I do the same but at least I don't wear a Prada bag. Still funny, though.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Vivi Cafe, Eglisau
Where else would you find a cafe that closes at lunchtime (see foto).
I asked why and they said it was so the staff could get lunch (?)!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

It feels like my ovaries are square-dancing.

It's late.

All the Apothekes are closed, and I'm out of Ibuprofen.

Not quite. It's open from 7:00 to 24:00.... The one at Bellvue is open 24 hours. I've been there at 23:45.

My colleague took me for a spin on his new Ducati, but now my hair is all messed up and I have to give a presentation in the afternoon
