Re: The First World Problem Thread

I recently had to decide between a Macbook Air 11 or 13"

Why can't Apple make a 12"?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I can't believe there are no screen protectors available yet in the Apple store for the new Ipad Air...

All the weight I gained due to overeating during Christmas I recently lost because of stomach flu... Nobody will believe me now if I brag about eating abundantly over the holidays...

Along those lines, I had stomach flu just before Christmas, had lost 3 kilos but put all of them back during Christmas and an extra 3!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Yesterday I had to wait an extra 15 minutes for my husband to arrive at the office to drive me home (now he drives me to and from work as I am almost 8 months pregnant and find the walk to and from the train station too much in this cold and dark time of the year). Anyway, 15 minutes! I even had to do some more work whilst waiting for him to turn up.

Forgot to run a wash with fabric softener and now I've got over-clingy pyjamas.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I got an insulated travel mug for my commute to work.
The problem is it works too well, my coffee isn't cool enough to drink until I get to work
