Why can't the controls of my jungle shower be on the outside, so when I step in the water is already warm??

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I went out for a cocktail last night and paid CHF18.- for a Virgin Pina Colada... Today at the supermarket I spent a good 30 seconds deciding which bread to buy because one was CHF2.90 and the other was CHF3.40

"Penny wise pound foolish..." and "Eat like chickens and shit like elephants" spring to mind

How lucky! No matter what I order, I have to share it with the kids... Why do they need to eat everyday anyway?

I have the same problems, but with socks. I suspect there's a sock-eating monster living in our washing machine. Practically at every wash one goes missing!

There is never enough dip for 9 nuggets, but then there isn't enough nuggets for two pots of dip
