End of the Middle Earth.

Let’s start with the obvious.

Obvious, but still annoying.

Waiting out a New Zealand traffic jam #travel #NewZealand #newzealandproblems

Mate. Get out of the fucking car.

And then there’s the neighbours.

Still, at least they actually acknowledge we exist.


Unlike everyone else.


Basically no one understands us.

Never know what to put when asked for my state – New Zealand problems <- #funny

Like being a nation split in two.

Like which Wi-Fi network to choose.

And the AGONY that is Halloween.

Major problem? A draconian government that limits our personal freedoms.

So far from “civilization” even the most basic things cost a ridiculous amount.

A nation where a Marmite shortage is a national emergency.

With chocolate milk so good we have to ration it.

Suddenly I really want chocolate milk #nzproblems

That one hot day when the tarmac sticks to your Jandals.

This horrific moment.

Worst start to the warmer months ever #KiwiProblems

And the goddamn flies.

But mainly, the goddamn winters.

We breed a vicious breed of criminal.

Distinctively NZ crime problems.

Keeping them away from the good stuff is a constant battle.

Which is why we deploy our intelligence resources where they’re most needed.

Only in New Zealand is sheep theft a problem… #nzproblems

And just when you’ve finally escaped the last of the sheep.

National disgrace? You’ve never seen a kiwi.

Bloody native wildlife!

How do you remedy this? #newzealandproblems #kaikoura #newzealand
