Re: The First World Problem Thread

I bought paint for the stairs. The idea was to buy a yellow-beige, but I changed my mind at the last minute because I can and I am a woman and who asked for your opinion anyway...

The new green-beige clashes with the wallpaper I was going to use on one wall.

I haven't slept since...

as far as I know, BH means boobholder.
makes it a very strange post to me.
really hope that I am wrong.

if not, pics please
If one boob-holder invited another boob-holders there would have been quad tits party.

In this specific case I meant my better half. hope I won't get in trouble with this post

I have just finished stringing clients racket in the basement. Towards my amusement old Swiss lady did knock-knock. "Please come in!" I said. She said "I saw the light and thought that somebody uninvited was in". "No, it was just me stringing the racket at night for my impatient client " She was amazed that I knew how to string the rackets.

My problem with that is that I did not expect to have a good conversation in German with my neighbour. Sometimes I'm surprised with myself.

Had to suck all my crisps because crunching them means I couldn't hear Eastenders properly.

The timing on the light in the communal hallway is too short. I have to press the button again as I get out of the lift.

Can't they make a Kindle with two screens so that everyone on the tram knows that I'm reading Dostoyevsky?

I have a continuing dilemma as to which shower I should use in the appartment.
I have a similar dilemma every time I come home after working out...steam shower in bathroom 1 or bubble bath in bathroom 2? Choices, choices...

In another world, the dry cleaner ruined my beautiful handmade fair-trade scarf. Bl**dy dry cleaner!

Since I am tracking my calories like a watchdog after stuffing my face in multiple countries over the holidays, my only options for dinner tonight are either white cheddar broccoli soup or lobster bisque, and I can't decide.

I put a glass bottle in my mother-in-law's dust bin. She might get in trouble with authorities.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

After 5 pages, none of the posts has reached the quality of a regular first world problem in the complaints corner. Making up first world problems just does not work.
