People Share Their Worst First World Problems—And We're Living For It


Admitting your first world problems can sometimes feel like admitting that your private water tower isn't big enough to hold all of your gold coins. It's okay, Mr. McDuck, everyone's got them in some form or another. Fortunately, you're not alone. The internet is full of people who are equally full of problems the rest of the world would mock us for.

Reddit user, u/mg1803, asked for people to get off their gold toilets and share:

What is the most First World problem you've had or have seen someone have?

H/T: Reddit

Sometimes Your Internet Is Too Good

I have a friend who lives in a house that's so big that they need 3 wifi extenders.


Meanwhile my wifi signal can reach half the residents in my street.


But, Who Shall I Summon For My Things?

My late grandmother once refused to stay at a luxury rental apartment because it didn't have a bellhop


Well it's not really luxury then.


In my area, "Luxury Apartment" just means there's a washer/dryer in the unit.


One Sea Vessel Too Many

Where to park their second boat.

The guy was upgrading his boat but whoever was picking up his old one hadn't come in time leaving him with two temporarily.

Hard times.


How Awful, Having Soooo Many Options

A friend hates his job and shopped around for other ones. He received a couple offers but doesn't want to change because he'll have to work harder.


This is my favorite so far.



A friend and I were driving around one day when he got a call, from his vacuum, that it was stuck in his house. It had driven off into a shower stall and couldn't climb the ledge to get out.

There are kids starving in Africa, and he got a distress call from his vacuum. And people say the American dream is dead.


You Know, There's Too Many Things To Watch

I'm hungry, but there's nothing to watch while I eat. Or rather, there's tons of things to watch, but if I start watching a new show I'll want to watch it to the end and I'm not sure which one to pick.


Yes, this is me.

Sometimes my food gets cold while I'm trying to find something on Netflix.

Can't be a movie. Too big of a commitment. Can't be something new, I'll have to pay attention. Has to be familiar and quick. Where did Archer, 30 Rock, Scrubs and Earl go? Am I really going to have to do Office again? And I just finished P&R again.


Just Vacuum Around Me

When my housekeepers are cleaning up a room I'm in I have to walk all the way to another room.


*stomps around in Prime anger

When I want something from Amazon and it isn't available on Prime so I have to wait a few extra days for shipping.


That, and how annoying it is to order from anywhere else because it can take 3-5 days for shipping.


"Siri, Can You Make My Talking Car Better?"

I got in an argument with my car because it couldn't understand my voice commands.

To be fair to the car, I got harder to understand between all the cursing.


...Get Out.

There was too much food in the fridge already, so I had no room to put my leftover food.


Rock bottom. I'll keep you in my prayers


Got a first world problem you want to come clean about? Let us know!

With the plethora of dating apps these days, you'd think it would be easier to find the perfect someone, or just anyone who isn't a complete basket-case. How many times have you met the man or woman of you dreams until they blindsided you with something so insane that it had you sprinting for the door? It's enough to make you want to stay single and stay clear of the chaos and confusion of the dating world.

There's a huge difference between a nice guy and a "nice guy." Actual nice guys treat women with respect simply because they're human beings and all humans should be treated with respect unless they prove themselves to be terrible people. The "Nice Guy" is a whole other monster. "Nice guy" always has an ulterior motive. "Nice guy" isn't nice to women because they're human, he's nice because he wants something in return - and he often flips out in scary ways when he doesn't get it.

It's natural to want to be kind or helpful to others. Sometimes these kind gestures can just turn out to be a huge inconvenience to everyone involved though.

It's easy to get caught up in the negative. A quick glance at social media would have you believe all of humanity is at each other's throats, angry over a grocery line or losing a parking spot to someone. This isn't every day, and sometimes the best thing for your mental health is to look at the positive bits of humanity. Remind yourself we're capable of great things.
