https://www.flickr.com/photos/fanis_x/37448499461

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?

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

aquatermain

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.

"HUMAN MASTER...HELP."

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.

Jasrek

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.

SUND3VlL

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!

If you've ridden in a convertible with the top down, or on a motorcycle with a helmet with no face plate, you've probably gotten a bug caught in your throat at some point. Usually, though, you cough and sputter for a bit and the ordeal is over and done with. Sometimes things don't go so smoothly.

Reddit user LucasTheBrazilianGuy shared his epic tale of mental and physical injury at the hands (feet?) of a mere insect.

Fair warning: this one is fairly graphic, and definitely nightmare fuel for anyone who doesn't like insects (and even if you do).

But my soul is pure....

No matter who we love.... our significant others, or agents, our clients, fans or loved ones... it's never enough! And artists need the validation. That validation will help change the world. We're all trapped in moments but when we're most lucid we can change humanity! We should never fear the things we believe in; especially if it leads to progress.....

Redditor u/spankthewhitewhale wanted to unburden a few feelings by asking.... What comes across as selfish but actually isn't?

Human history is pretty cool. We document ourselves in all kinds of different ways, whether it be through art, or architecture, or stories--museums exist to preserve these artifacts of the human race. One day, we might find things we know well in a museum.

What is the hallmark of your creed? By that, we mean--each and every person has their own set of values and rules to live by. Those things define our choices, and therefore, those things define us.

Fate is fickle, and bad things seem to happen for no discernible reason. Sometimes, though, things just barely avoid going horribly wrong.
