Re: The First World Problem Thread

You could only imagine how dissappointed were we to disvover on return from warm countries that the snow has melted

Even more so when we discovered that the fridge was empty.

Climate seats in the new Range Rover Sport don't heat up as quickly as the heated seats in the Discovery.

There was a murder at the beginning and they caught the bad guy at the end.

Just like life, crime TV shows are about the journey, not the destination

I got distracted by housework straight after showering this morning, and forgot to brush my hair. I now look like a Flump.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Yesterday I was giving a private French lesson to a relatively new student, with my baby on my lap who was playing with my pen.

Said baby found nothing better than planting it down his throat, and promptly gagged and threw up over my student's desk!

The face of my student was priceless
