First World Problems are Hard

My friend, Annie, is really funny and she's always updating her Facebook with silly stuff. The other day she challenged everyone to list their first world problems. I, of course, can't think of any original ideas, so I swiped this one from her.



Here is Annie's: "It has come to my attention that the Kroger brand granola bars I purchase have far fewer choc chips per inch than the Quaker brand ... and this atrocity is completely unacceptable."

And here is mine: "Last night I wanted to soak in a bubble bath and I was out of bubble bath and had to use shampoo instead. The shampoo bubbles were not as soothing and it really disrupted my relaxation."


OK, it's time to whine. Let's hear your first world problems!

The lock on the rear passenger door of our car automatically locks but won't unlock. When you need to open the back door, you have to open the driver door, reach behind the seat and flip a switch. It's really hard on us!

I hate that Starbucks has gone green and now uses flimsy lids which causes me to spill coffee all over myself and shell out yet another five buck to buy another one.

The first thing I wrote was I ran out of nutella last night & had to wait until the store opened this morning to get it :-P

But just now: This blog keeps giving me an error every time I type in my comment so I have to reenter it.

The grocery store a mile from my house doesnt carry the greek yogurt I like so I actually have to go to Wal-Mart or Target to get some. I pass both of these stores twice a day so its not like its out of my way, just an extra turn.

I wanted to see what all the fuss is about game of thrones-wise so ordered 4 mass market editions. well, the print was much too small so I ordered the large format paperbacks and got toatally sucked in! # 5 will not come out until next summer so I was forced to get the hardback edition. It is so heavy that it smashes me in the nose whenever I doze off... quelle horreur!

People who walk in Seattle next to the buildings with the overhangs (we get a LOT of rain) but carry umbrellas! Not only are the umbrellas at the perfect height to aim right at my eye, get in the rain you umbrella users! I don't have an umbrella and would like to use the overhang so I don't look like a slightly frizzled rat at my next meeting. As a native Pacific Northwester, I refuse to buy an umbrella. But, unfortunately my head/hair/brains - yea brains, are too big to fit in a cute hat.

My 2010 Toyota Prius automatically unlocks the driver's door when approached, but it does not automatically unlock any of the other doors so I must open the driver's door and manually unlock the rest of the car while my passengers stand outside! The horror!

Veronica said...

I feel ya on this one. I am a fellow Pacific Northwester and I think we can agree that umbrellas are for tourists, and furthermore, overhang areas should be reserved for those of us that live here and do NOT feel the need to carry a stupid umbrella just because of all the scary scary water being dropped by the sky.

Veronica said...

Right?? And don't even get me started about how now that Starbucks has gone green they don't send you free drink coupons and make you TELL the barista that you have a free drink on your card. They expect us to have to ASK for the free drinks we clearly EARNED??

My Toyota mini van has automatic lock and unlock when i touch the handle (as well it SHOULD!!) But when I touch the driver's handle first, it only unlocks the driver's door! If I want all doors unlocked, I have to actually unlock and OPEN one of the sliding doors! Seriously, don't you think my butler could do this for me?

Meg said...

I love my Droid (Galaxsy S3) and my son just got an iPhone 5. I was afraid that I would be jealous of him. I am so NOT JEALOUS! First of all, I've hardly been allowed to get close enough to BREATHE on it, for Crying Out Loud (never mind the fact that I am the one footin' the bill for the damn thing, but that's rant for another day!!) On the off chance I do get to use it, I always say, "Never mind, Just give me my Droid!"

Oh! Yes, my jeep cherokee does the same thing on the back passenger door! And for added kicks, last week the hatch decided to do it too and I live a mile FROM THE BEACH.

I actually tweeted this the other day: I wish the Starbucks drive thru people would just give me the number of Splenda packets I request instead of putting it in themselves.

Also, I hate it when I have to cut my fingernails because they are interfering with my iPhone usage.

The trick is to NOT grind it so fine. It clogs the mesh. Try it a little coarser.

So... Technically I no longer live in the first world. Am not sure what Zambia is considered. However, whenever I'm home (Canada) I suffer from what I call "Expat Syndrome".

They don't teach people at the store how to bag groceries. And when I carry them in with a toddler on my arm I get pissed off. Did you really need to put ALL the cans in one bag? Bread on the bottom? A box of pasta in a bag all by itself? What in the ever loving fuck?!

I have read this blog for sometime and never commented. I usually find it quite funny. However, this I just find sad. How is this better than the people you typically go on tirades about who are upset over things that are ridiculous. I find the fact that people have so many stupid things to say embarrassing. And yes, I realize it is meant as humor. However, complaining with humor does not make it less off putting when there are plenty of people in the "first world" who would love to have just a few of these "problems" in lieu of the truly monumental ones they have.
