19 Devastating Middle Class Clifton Problems

Life in Clifton can be hard.

Posted on

1. When your artistic Suspension Bridge photos are out-vibed by strangers on Instagram.

Every. Single. Day.

2. When you bring the wrong labrador home from your trot on the Downs. / Via

Such a faff.

3. And worse, when it gets really hectic up there and you can barely practice your sun salutations without windmilling into someone.

5. When the only game you've got is hanging from your balcony.

8. When you're trying to give someone directions to your flat and you're like, "It's the white one with the little balcony and the colourful front door. Oh. Wait."

10. When you absolutely have to go down into town, but you can only find the keys to the gardener's car.

11. When you realise you've missed this week's Quidditch match. / Via Instagram

Terrible disappointment.


15. When you just want a bunch of carnations to cheer up Nanny, and all you can find are beautifully whimsical floral boutiques

So inappropriate.


17. When you find out you've been doing it wrong with gourds all along: They're for decoration, not eating.

19. And finally, when you're cheesed off with never having anywhere decent to go for sundowners.

Urgh, it's so uninspiring round here.
