BAD phone signals, dodgy broadband connections and cows on the road are just some of the typically Cornish gripes listed online today.
Popular website Buzzfeed posted a list titled ‘41 Problems Everybody in Cornwall Can Understand’, with each problem based on an angry tweets from the Duchy.
The list sparked a huge amount of conversation on social media at the weekend.
Trying in vain to get an internet connection and running late for work because of cows on the road were two of the top problems listed as facing people on the other side of the Tamar.
Other problems included a lack of shops – other than pasty outlets – aggressive seagulls, too many tractors on the roads and regular cow crossings on rural routes.
A tweet by Herald reporter Sam Blackledge bemoaning his car radio signal dropping out during a crucial moment of The Ashes was among those to make the cut.
Using the tag #cornwallproblems, hundreds of people have taken to Twitter to relay funny and frustrating things which they say would only happen in the county.
Many people have also used the hashtag to complain about the persistent rain which seems to have plagued the Duchy over the past few months.
