Some typical problems that every Londoner has (more than likely) made out is the end of their world.
We’re all guilty of thinking our daily problems are some of the utter worst in the world but it all gets a little more tragic when you focus on London. Prepare for ultimate gripes about lack of macchiatos, shortage of artisan breads and the struggle of not having a pop-up to attend this weekend.

That sinking feeling when you've forgotten your headphones and have an hours journey to west London #londonproblems
