I am crying with laughter at these posts!


I am also crying because the dishwasher I bought for my vacation home takes THREE HOURS to finish one cycle. THREE HOURS. This forces me to set it up before going to bed. The machine at home takes no more than 50 minutes. I just don't get it, they're both Maytag. What's the world coming to?


This morning I was trying to squeeze that last little drop of toothpaste out of the tube before tossing it, and I was using both hands for a big squeeze. Well didn't that lil quarter of an inch white blob just pop right out, into the sink drain, gone forever. I was then forced to get a brand new tube from the drawer below, and go through all the bother of opening the cardboard box which I wasn't in the mood for.


And talking of opening, I bought an HDMI cable a few days ago and could not find scissors to open the plastic anti-shoplifting, anti-terrorist casing around it. I had to use a bread knife and almost caused myself an injury.

My sourdough bread isn't very sour. Can I sue for false advertising? Pain and suffering? And also, punitive damages for personal injury when the crust poked me in the gum.

Had to drive the Lamborghini today. The color of the Mercedes did not match my suit. Now I have to buy another Mercedes to prevent this from happening again. The expenses are getting to be awful, a million here a million there and it starts to add up.

I bought a third flat screen 65" Sammy UHD TV for my LR/home theatre.

I receive 2 "free" cable boxes as part of my HOA fee, but I don't want to pay for another one.

So I got Netflix, HBO-Go, a DVD and then, to receive over-the-air Network channels for football parties, I purchased a Mohu Leaf 50 indoor Omni-directional antenna.

It will receive all the desired channels, but only when hung on a nearby wall in such a position that now it looks like a kite is flying indoors!

Obviously, my work is not yet done.

I love your description of the plastic "anti-shoplifting, anti-terrorist" casing. Rep given

Packaging is a HUGE first world problem. Sometimes if I buy something new and it comes in plastic packaging, it can take days before I summon the energy to try to open it. Eventually I will pour myself a glass of wine, get out several knives and scissors and my garden clippers, and get to work.

Toilet paper. Why are there so many choices? I positively detest having to decide which one to try next. It takes too much time in the store and I don't like being late for my private skiing lessons.

Sven gets upset.

I may get a personal shopper.

Earlier, I wanted to take a Jacuzzi bath with some herbs from the natural food store. According to my naturopathicly trained doctor, these herbs were used by ancient indigenous people (somewhere - but I forget where) and they have been found to help with fibromyagia.

(First World disease of the first order)

One of the jets in my tub, isn't working. My husband can't fix anything because he has an MBA and he's generally not mechanically inclined.

So, instead, I took a regular soaking bath. And now, I am having a lemon drop. However, after the holidays, we were out of vodka, so I had to go to the liquor store near me that does not carry our brand. So I am having a lemon drop martini with Svedka instead of Grey Goose.
