New game - First World problems
There was a thread on Facebook the other day about First World problems. It really made me laugh, and was oh so true. While people around the world struggle to find something to eat & clean water to drink, the folks in the US and similar countries have very different concerns, very different preoccupations, very different frustrations. My contribution to that conversation was:

Even after 2 call backs to Deck Helmet, my expensive deck makeover still isn't right.

If you'd like to add your situations, we might have a funny thread. Or this entry to Let's Play will fall out in about a day.

(I assume this isn't an ABC game.)

My problem: The squirrels keep digging up and/or eating my flowers and veggies.

Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

The toilet paper I bought Monday night is not soft enough.

The water in my birdbath froze last night.

If I don't keep the curtains closed, my big screen TV always reflects the light glare from my large picture window - which is quite annoying.

My can of mixed nuts doesn't have enough pecans in it.

The detergent pack didn't dissolve in the dishwasher last night, so I had to restart the load again this morning.

You guys have the idea!

My husband keeps leaving the remote control all over the den and I have to constantly try to find it.

The hot water takes a really long time to get from the heater in the basement to the 2nd floor bathroom.
