What is FPTP?

FPTP is turning up at the butchers wanting steak, but being refused service because it's sold out.

FPTP is wanting to watch the Kings Speech at the cinema, but being turned away because the screening is full

FPTP is going for a curry, even though it means the majority of your group go home early

FPTP is not having a single thing you can use as a knife in the kitchen when you need to slice some things.

FPTP is not being able to find your Kings of Leon CD in the car, so having to sit in silence.

FPTP is wanting a Cobra when you get to the bar, but having to not drink anything because it is sold out.

FPTP is your long term life partner dying, but finding another love to keep you company.

FPTP is wanting to use the treadmills at the gym, but turning around and going home because you don't know when they'll become free

FPTP is your team being 1-0 down in the 90th, and your manager telling the team to give up because only a win is worth it.

FPTP is finding your favourite clubbing top hasn't been washed, not having a reasonable going out top otherwise, and so having to call your night out off

In basic terms, FPTP is having one choice, and if that choice isn't valid enough then you have to sit on the sidelines without your full opinion being heard. Isn't that pretty unfair?
