Can you relate to this sketch about the ultimate first world problem?

All lot of us know the struggle that comes from visiting a petrol station for a packet of gum to freshen up the mouth and leaving the store with a bag of groceries that you didn’t need - and a four pack of chocolate because it was on special offer.

The love of a good bargain is a very Irish quality that often results in us picking up a number of items we are likely to never use simply because they were going cheap.

It’s why we all love - and fear - a trip to Aldi and Lidl.

Here is a short clip by the very funny Fupin Eejits that encapsulates the pressure most feel walking into a petrol station for a simple purchase only to be accosted by the smell of fresh bread and pastries along with the brightly coloured sugar treats that all look so appealing.

Watch this clip for a quick giggle.
