The "Luxury" I'd Least Appreciate

I think it must be breakfast in bed. First of all, a bed seems to me just a horrid and uncomfortable place to eat a meal: the meal would shift around as you moved, you can't really sit up properly, if you shift your legs too much you get the meal in your lap: ugh! Secondly, having breakfast shoved over you, pinning you there, before you've even gotten up to use the loo, makes the whole idea seen even worse. And if you had gotten up and performed your ablutions, why in the world would you want to get back into bed to eat?

And yet, it is portrayed repeatedly as the height of luxury!
