I bought 9 chicken nuggets ate 3, threw the remaining 6 away...life's a blast. Now I'm hungry again and need to buy another 9 nuggets.
There is never enough dip for 9 nuggets, but then there isn't enough nuggets for two pots of dip


Why McDonalds... Why??????????

I couldn't decide whether I needed an iPad 3, an iPad Air or a Kindle. So I bought all three. But I only have two hands!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The water in the work kitchen was too warm and TOTALLY UNDRINKABLE!

I could have gone upstairs to the Coke machine. But how can ANYBODY be expected to walk upstairs, just for a bloody drink, for gods' sake? IT'S TOTALLY UNTHINKABLEBLE
