My dog refuses to walk outside when it rains.

She does the fastest pee ever about one meter away from the front door, glaring at me the whole time as if it was MY fault she's getting wet.
I want sensible dogs like that, instead of the Competitive Mud Wallowing Idiots.

Would that be the spoon that was in your mouth when you were born?

You think you have problems, I had to wait 5 minutes for my kettle to finish updating its firmware

My phone that measures my step count isn't ij my pocket when I run up and down stairs in my duplex apartment in the morning therefore constantly underestimating my stepping awesomeness.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I went to update the iPod from the dock yesterday evening (with Crimbo songs) only to find the dock was turned off, the iPod drained - and it unable to connect/sync until it had more juice.

I then forgot about doing it because Masterchef was on

Re: The First World Problem Thread

In the interests of attempting to learn the local language better, I've switched the language of my phone to French (Swiss).

As I've said many times, there are only three assessments for this move: brave, cunning or stupid.

It's Christmas Eve and the fridge is full, but I'm scared of eating anything in case it's for Christmas Day.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I bought some headlight beam reflectors on the ferry this morning which cost me £6.99.
Anyway turns out I don't need them because my car has modern xenon lights.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Just watching the Swiss come across the finish line of the Biathlon competition (shooting, X country skiing.. - not to be confused..)

It is funny that Swiss Sports money-people have money for sailing, but not for ski-sports

You and Jesus both must get a lot of those 2 for 1 gifts (birthday and Christmas, but just one present!). I feel bad for the both of you.
