Having an Only In Sweden moment? On Twitter, natives and newbies alike have used the hashtag #SwedishProblems to share the weird, the wrong, and the wildly woeful about life in Sweden. The Local has collected some of the funniest to date.

In fact, even the Swedes seem to appear to like a bit of Only In Sweden.
Whether it's living in a place often confused with another European country or the head-slappingly irritating opening hours for liquor stores, they're all here.
