My new Bvlgari purse is not the exact same shade of yellow as my new Bvlgari handbag.

I've had my name misspelled so many times in the UK, that I started calling myself "Bob". Then someone misspelled it as "Rob".

One of the misspellings of my real name was Porridge. Porridge!

I can't be bothered to cook, so I was going to have cheese on toast for tea. But I can't be bothered the slice the cheese. Or toast the bread.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I'm getting sick of the Dr Oetker Pizzaburger ads on Youtube. Maybe it's the voice, maybe it's just the plain corniness of the ad.

You know - those ones that play before the beginning of your video. Yes, I know you can skip them after listening to the first mandatory five seconds or so......

I've been invited to a 07:30 meeting tomorrow morning, and they're not even laying on a complimentary breakfast buffet.

Time to dust off my CV

I cannot cope with the chaos.



Order has prevailed over the dark forces of chaos - I am pleased to report that the neat-and-soldierly beans have returned to my local Coop. We can now breathe a deep sigh of relief, for Alles is again in Ordnung.

I can't decide whether to go to Cuba, the Dominican Republic or Jamaica for my holiday next year. I'm so indecisive it's awful!

Some diseased bloke spoke to me last night in Kuppel and now I'm probably going to die or get man-flu or something.

On the bright side, you'll probably come down with it over the weekend and so no need to miss work days.

Your lucky, I have to put on an american accent to get my voice recognition to work, the more extreme the better, and have to end the sentence with "boy"

Change the radio boy - like Sheriff J.W. Pepper

(ok the last bit is a lie, but it does only work with an american accent)
