    Not the movie, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Ride at Walt Disney World. There's now one in Paris too, I saw them building it the last time I was there.

    Nah, doesn't matter, to be fair the movie was based on the ride and I had a fear of elevators for a few years. The preview was shown during the early days of DC UK.

    I had fear of taking elevators outside of my building for a few years. But I still have fear of taking the elevator alone, all because of the fear of being stuck alone...

    Take it to PM guys, you're getting a little off-topic.

    Take this with you, though. Less than 30 people die of elevator-related accidents every year in the U.S. 1600 people are killed by stairs. Stairs are 53 times more lethal than elevators.

    When there is a signaling fault or train breakdown on the railway and have to catch a replacement bus service.

    I've never really been to a convention... You'd think at least one place in South Carolina would be more capable of them.

    Flaky Pastry, it just flakes off and gets everywhere when eating a pasty.

    When Chrome Mobile wants to do an update and closes the browser when writing a long forum post.

    The wi-fi reception in my desktop computer has been acting up the past few days. When I boot it up it doesn't want to connect at all, and it takes anywhere from five minutes to a half-hour to convince it to follow the wi-fi stream without stuttering or timing out. The desktop is three years old, which is the magic number for defects that every manufacturer tries to hit, as it is JUST out of the warranty zone.

    So I dug around in a drawer and found the wi-fi USB dongle I had to use with my old desktop, which was built before wi-fi was a thing. I put it in and its auto-drivers do not work. I search online and find the manufacturer deliberately doesn't update their drivers for newer versions of Windows because they want you to buy a new one instead. AAARGH....

    When the clock on my classroom displays the wrong time. I'm now in the middle of Spring Break (because I was sick), so I don't have to worry about time conflicts for another two weeks.

    I think I've found the ultimate first world problem. When you make a thread on an internet message board about first world problems, and a significant portion the people who post in it JUST DO NOT GET the topic at all and post stuff that doesn't fit. Bonus first world problems points if you're from Portland, as always.

    My internet was down, so I couldn't use pandora. I had to -gasp- dig out my boombox radio.

    Having to come up with a different URL for my blog because the one that I really want is already taken by a inactive blog.

    When your lazy butler washes your sock garters and they're still covered with shmutz.

    Really, old chap. You must never count on a butler to do a manservants job. They think it beneath them and make a footmens job of it.
    Tut-tut. What-ho!
