Default 1st World Problems - Let us hear 'em!

I think there needs to be a safe space for us to complain about frivolous things so here is mine:

1. Pre-cleaning the house before the cleaning lady shows up. My wife starts riding my behind about 2 days out....why would i clean up? Do you pre-wash your car before you take it to the car wash? pre-wash your clothes before taking them to the cleaners?? NO!


What are your 1st world problems?

Not now, but the ex wife had to make the bed every morning and put 77 pillows in some sort of eye pleasing geometric shape that only she knew. Then had to take them off every night. PITA

Our off shore fishing trip got canceled do to high seas this weekend and it’s hard to schedule a new date because I’m going to Alaska for 12 days in August, have some fishing planned in July and have an elk and mule deer hunt in October!

There is a sushi place that recently opened up 3 minutes from my house. They have a seasoned tuna that has to be dusted with heroin, cocaine, LSD and Zanax. I have a become an addict. They fuel the addiction by knowing my order from the caller id. "Herro Mr John de same orda?" I say yes and hang up. I get it to go because they don't serve alcohol or have a tv at the bar. My record is three separate orders in one day. I tip the girls well and started getting extras in the bag. It's getting out of control but I don't care anymore. I knew I would get caught eventually. It was my secret until....

Last weekend my girls were making breakfast and all started laughing calling me to come to the kitchen. I walk into the kitchen and I was busted. The drawer that I toss the wrapped chopsticks was open. One was counting them the other two just cracking up.

"Why do you have 37 sets of chopsticks? You can't even use them?"

"I like the new sushi place and go there frequently."

"37 times? Its only been open for a few months. What is her name?" (two months actually)

"Nothing to see here girls. It's considered bad luck in Japanese culture to throw away un-used chopsticks and I am honoring their tradition."

"Why don't you just tell them you don't NEED them when you order."

"Girls there is a system in place that can't be disturbed. Sure I could open the bag and take them out while I was picking it up but there is no way I can re-tie the bag like they do. Its art."

"Seriously, are you on drugs Dad?"

My phone rang in another room and i raced off to answer it. Later I moved the chopsticks to a safer location like a true addict does. That was a close one.

Back in the day before online shopping was so easy if you need a particular item there was a process to getting it. Get up and get dressed to go to town, drive into town to the store, wander around the store till you find what you need then drive back home.

Now when ordering online you place the order then realize, "shoot I have to get up to go get my credit card"
