There are just too @#$% many choices for everything! We're remodeling our bathroom and I just want a (fill in the blank) but there are umptyzillion different styles/colors/manufacturers/retailers for every single thing I need.

In other news...some people don't have toilets or running water. First world problems indeed.

I was only give the choice of 3 refrigerators that could fit in my space. Plus, it even said in the instruction book that it would be noisy when the compressor is running! So, basically the appliance industry is blowing off EVERYONE with an older house and a small kitchen! Which is almost everyone in nyc and its suburbs!
They are forcing me to redo my kitchen!

@ohcheri: Too many choices! What would Thomas Crapper say?

@ohcheri: Oh, yeah, that reminds me.....when we put the second floor on the house and put in a new bathroom, we looked for tiles for 2 years. Not one that we liked. So now we have a large bathroom with ok tiles. Not great.
Then a few years later, ALL the tiles were nice! I love the new tiles.

As much as I wanted to answer, I just couldn't type out my complaint. It just sounded so petty.I need to remember to be happy with all that I have and not living in places like the Middle east or North Korea.

Although....

I was really tired so I drank so much coffee that my stomach's probably too full to really enjoy the lunch I'm about to go have with a friend.

I have just purchased a new RV, but will not have any time off until the middle of April to use it. Work is getting in the way of my recreation!

Don't you hate it when you ring for your caviar, and the butler brings the Sevruga instead of the Beluga? I mean it's like he isn't even trying.

When people in the left hand lane drive slower than people in the right hand lane. or even worse, when the person in the left hand lane is driving the same speed as the person in the right hand lane, and they are both doing exactly the speed limit or under

Having to feel guilty about having FWP! Just because someone has it worse, doesn't void your frustration.

I slept too much and now I need a nap.

I want to change the station but I can't find the remote.

Also, I don't know if this counts but...I want to buy nicer clothes but I don't want to have to deal with all that steaming and hanging of clothes, so I settle for t-shirts and work pants?

Actually now that I think about it. I'm pretty sure the first two are also Jim Gaffigan Jokes. That guy is the king of first world problems

People who order breakfast sandwiches in the Starbucks drive-thru. Seriously folks, it takes over 10 minutes to make one, GO INSIDE!!

Also, I hate it when people stop at a light in the right hand lane in front of a line of cars that want to turn right. If you're the first person at the light and you aren't turning right anytime soon, switch lanes or move your car over so we can get by.

Geeze, I work from home, rarely drive and my complaints are all car related. #carsnob

@ryanwb: Or how about when they are turning right but don't until the light is green?

@coreyking: My garage door has an app - I can close it from my iPhone and can tell if it's up or down. It saves me from having to make the walk of shame at 2 am in the pitch dark to across the house check if it's down.

First World Problem: When you're describing a problem or something that irritates you, and then someone says something to put it all in perspective like "hey, there are starving children" and then you feel all guilty.

Drivers who think that everyone should yield to the person zooming through a lane that's ending even when they're the ones that should slow down, signal, and merge.

@stile99: Ah, you must live in Louisiana, too! We were already considered a banana republic (I have that t-shirt, too), and under the current administration we are well on our way to becoming a third-world country!

But I digress. @ryanwb: You are quite correct, there just aren't enough hours in the day to oversee the cleaning of my McMansion, attend social events, and watch all of the television shows I record. Life is soooooo hard!

@dontwantaname: My kitchen is 6x6, the floor space left after the cabinets and appliances is 3x3. I have a very limited selection of refrigerators and ovens. I have a "Conservator by Crosley" frost free top freezer fridge I got from Maytag which I believe is 9.5cf. 21" deep, 22.5" wide. It is totally silent other than occasionally when the compressor kicks on. It's inconveniently tiny, but fits exactly in my available space. I can't find it online, but you might look around for it in your area.

CARS. Cars tick me off when they scream of cheap quality. My car door needs to stay open when I open it and not have a "loose/weak" hinge and slam back into my knee instead of staying open. My glove compartment, sun visors, shifter, doors, hatch, and everything else needs to have a solid "click" when I adjust them. No plasticy, crappy chirps or weak sounds when I close my glove compartment no sir. Nothing needs to wiggle and if it does wiggle it better be able to be adjusted or I'm replacing it. Everything should have fine adjustments to fit me. My car better go where I point it to go and it should never feel sloppy, the brakes should be sensitive, and the suspension and steering should be variable and adjust depending on the current situation. My interior better scream of personality. No plasticy cheap generic crap that was placed there as an after thought or a "how much money can we save".

It is these reasons, and much much more, that I have only ever found 2 or 3 cars that fit me

@moondrake: Thanks, but if my husband would take down the wall, we can fit a "normal" size one! I just think it is odd that was a standard size is now not standard.

6x6...that is smaller than our apt kitchen when we were first married. I hope a bigger kitchen is in your future!

What ticks me off is when people feel they have to post "sounds like a first world problem, bro" as a response in a forum. I work in IT, pretty much everything I deal with is a first-world problem. Am I supposed to be ashamed of that?

vote-for7vote-against

@cleverett: Have you tried turning off and on again? =P Seriously though you'd be surprised well maybe not you but others will be how often you have to tell people that in real life. I work IT for a university and people are sooooooooooooo stupid sometimes. One person I even had to tell to plug it in.

Side note aka information that no one I've ever met cares about except me because I'm weird.

First world and Second World Countries is incorrectly used in todays society. If you look it up those actually stand for the following
1st world: US and it's allies
2nd world: Soviet Union, China, & and it's allies
3rd world: non allied nations.

So in truth like Norway and part of the UK and a few other countries are 3rd world XD
Nice Map here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_World

Proper terms are Developed, Developing, and Undeveloped Countries >.> But I have to agree 1st world does sound better has kinda a ring to it. But anywho you can go win at one of those quiz games now.

That nobody made billions of $ and gave at least 1bn$ of it to me when I turned 18. I mean, I can't afford to just go buy every cool toy and travel to every cool place by impulse. I have to be responsible and budget and work and save and do without and plan for the future and stuff. And other people have no sympathy at all!

Also, imperfect cell networks ... and those demons from hell known as remote controls. And other drivers not deferring and giving me an excellent driving experience whenever I start the car.

@dontwantaname: Since the house will be paid off in a couple of years, no, I think there's no other house in my immediate future.
