Entire day was ruined.
I feel your pain. My one indulgence is a large order of French fries occasionally; either McDee's or Wendy's, they are the best, order extra ketchup and that powdery wonderful salt. I drive away with exactly one packet of salt, and one packet of ketchup which does me no good.

in our 3rd bathroom that we rarely use we have decorative towels neatly placed on the rack, they match the garbage can, soap holder, and rug...... it is a matched set from bed-bath-beyond

sometimes i use this bathroom as it is closer to the garage, but when i do there is no "regular towel" to use to dry my hands

option #1 - use the decorative towels (vetoed by the GF)
option #2 - leave a normal towel in there (out of the question)
option #3 - use a different bathroom.... nope

i have since been forced to resort to wiping my hands on my pants.

Btw does anyone know who is making these flimsy plastic water bottles that wont stand up. I should not have to put the cap back on every time I take a sip to avoid spilling water all over one of my computers.


Good for the environment? I don't think so, if I have to get a new bottle every time one spills!

Hmmm..........does your girlfriend not know that BBB or any other store like that has lovely decorative paper hand towels that you can put on the counter and toss in the waste basket. I'm sure there are some that match your other stuff and there are all sorts of lovely containers for them.


Of course, then there's more trash to take out but you could just make her do it by threatening to find a new third world gf who will take better care of you. Because really it sounds like she is the problem and maybe she is just not cut out to live in the first world. Everyone I know with 3 or more bathrooms and show towels solved this problem years ago.

The darn socks my wife keeps buying me. One white sock and one black sock. I must have 30 identical pairs in my dresser drawer.

The wash and fold service by my house was closed today, now I have to fold my own clothes like some peasant.

Edit: or worse, drive in a direction not on the way home from work to have it done!

Today at Panera I ordered the soba noodle salad, and my salad came with no noodles. I had to get up and take the noodleless bowl to ask for my noodles! So inconvenient.

Every single day I have to walk 1/2 block to our mailbox. We don't have the old fashioned house mailbox any more, nosiree. We have a communal unit that stores about 30 mailboxes, and I live 1/2 block from it. So, rain or shine, I have to walk there. Phooey.

When I go to the gym, I have a hard time getting time on the recumbent elliptical. There is only one of these, and all the other old people with knee problems want to get time on it too.

I can't make the fingerprint I.D. thingee work on my new IPad. Phooey.

My wife refuses to iron our sheets. So I have to spend my valuable time waiting for crease lines on my calves, butt and back to fade. And YOU people think YOU have it tough.
