That moment when you look at your car, and you look at that pile of $hit you've just bought from IKEA, and you know that you have been beaten.

Has anyone else noticed no one puts dividers behind their shopping at the supermarket? Does this only annoy me

Yes, without the clever lighting and camera angles, it would just look like your everyday hovel.

Must be a Swiss germn thing.

In our parts it's normal to put the divider thingy after your stuff when you're done. 99% of people do it.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Same here in Basel and I always put a divider behind my stuff. But if the person in front of me hasn't I just pile all my stuff up behind theirs; they then freak out and quickly put a divider in between.

Pah!

Who wants to live in Maui?! You'd just get sunburned all the time, and probably get sick on eating too much lobster and scallops.


The parties that you could have in the shower look like they could be fun though

I want to read a Terry Pratchett book but now if I do it'll look like I'm jumping on a bandwagon.
