Sometimes when we dine out the holes in the salt & pepper shakers are not sized right and either the salt pours out too fast or the pepper won't come out at all. I have had to unscrew the cap to dump a little pepper in my hand so I can sprinkle a some on my food.

This week my menu service sent me three Mexican recipes. While I love Mexican food, and each recipe on it's own is delicious, I do like more variety during the week. To save time in cooking I have selected to eat left overs for lunch so they do not send separate lunch recipes. As a result, I have eaten way too much Mexican food this week. To top it off I had a prearranged lunch with a friend at... you guessed it, a Mexican restaurant.

They also send a shopping list which I use at the beginning of the week to get all the ingredients for the week's recipes. As a result I cannot just buck the system and make something else. I wouldn't have the right stuff and what I have already bought would go bad. :-(

Coincidentally they sent out a survey this week. I complained about the lack of variety in this week's recipes. My personal chef, Emily (yes you get one with this service) hasn't gotten back to me and apologized or anything. (I'm being facetious in that I don't really expect a response, but I really do have a personal chef with this service.)

Oh, and in about 10 min. I may suffer severe disappointment when I check some small pieces of paper to see if I've become a billionaire.

I have a 90 mile commute to university every day, and it's in a 5 year old Honda Accord with 83,000 miles. And I'm 23.

My petty first world gripe: i can't find cotton shoelaces. The poly ones don't stay tied.

I am trying to determine what, if any, differences there are between first world problems and humblebrags.

ROFLMAO.

There has to be a solution so you don't have to suffer.
