Well, yes. I know you want to be a gentleman but frankly I don't see the reason in these circumstances.

Probably you right. Now it creates another personal FWP of being "nitpicking". Then it's within context because we're talking "hairlines".

The wife has decided that rather than take my spacious Ford Focus wagon for our road trip to Trieste tomorrow, we will take the Boxster, which means that I will have to reduce my stuff to the minimum, as she can't!

Ford Focus. Aren't you the person who would 'never buy a Volvo' ?

The latest Apple update has corrupted the Safari links on my mobile devices. I'm forced to use my laptop to surf the web for porn.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

It cost me more to have my (Ikea) curtains resized then it did to buy them.

Its a fine line between First World problems and being Switzerlanded
