First World Problems

When you need to re-wash your dishes by hand because your dishwasher left a powdery film all over everything. Such a drag!

Ok, we're old school, we don't have a dishwasher. All washing done by hand. :))

We do have a dishwasher but since it's only the 2 of us, it only runs about once or twice a week. I cook all our meals, but there are some pots/pans and tools that never go into the dishwasher. Those are washed by hand.


We also don't have a garbage disposal. Well, that's not entirely true...we have Harley and Sparky who are quite adept at disposing of most of what we put in their path.

Besides faulty dishwashers, what are some of your “first world problems?”

My knives, sauce pans and skillets, and of course all that plastic stuff one accumulates all get washed by hand. And if Mark puts them in the dishwasher, he gets his butt handed to him!

Joel, I found out about this product right here many years ago and we wouldn't be without it. Nothing else worked with our terrible hard water and this stuff is worth it's weight in gold.
Everything comes out sparkle clean and I'm not exaggerating.

It seems every time I complain about something it's a "first world problem".
Actually I really like that term as it brings all of us spoiled people back to the reality of how fortunate we really are.
The truth is, we all won the lottery by being born in a first world country.

The internet connection on my flight today is VERY slow.

My bank won't allow me to deposit cash into my wife's checking account.

Unfortunately, I think it's gone past being a reminder and become a joke. People don't take that phrase seriously.
