Believe it or not, life goes on... even during a global pandemic.

Many of us are holed up in our homes and doing the best we can under the current circumstances. But that doesn't mean we can't mourn what we've lost and complain about the silly things that continue to bother us, global crisis or not.

After Redditor cloudgayzing asked, "What's the most first world problem you're currently having?" people were only too happy to weigh in.


"All the stuff I order..."

Giphy

All the stuff I order off of Amazon is gonna take like 5-7+ days to get here instead of the normal 1-2.

I had a trip to Hawaii planned this month, and it was cancelled because of the pandemic.

I would much rather everyone be safe and not spreading the virus, but still... it sucks.

"But now..."

I was meant to go home to Australia for a 3 week vacation in October to see my friends & family.

But now I've been out of work for 6 weeks, with probably another 5-6 to go (Bars will likely be the last thing to reopen in WI and I'm a bartender - so I don't expect to be working again before mid June) which means I'll not only have lost 3+ months of income but I had to spend most of my savings so I won't be able to go home.

I moved to the US 18 months ago and haven't been home since. I miss my friends and family. I really just want to curl up in a ball and cry about it.

"I bought..."

I bought a brand new house. It's so new that it's not on google maps so I can't order doordash food during this pandemic.

LittleBearFeet

"I finally found..."

I finally found some toilet paper, but it's not the brand I usually use. I'm so disappointed...

At least I've got some.

"My sofa is so large..."

My sofa is so large and plump and covered in cushions that I sink into a nest-like comfort chasm within it and so sometimes get too warm or can't reach my drink.

"Two months ago..."

Two months ago, I got a slight promotion and a nice raise at work... I didn't tell my husband about it because he hates his job and I didn't want to rub salt in the wound.

But then all raises and promotions got suspended because of COVID-19 budget cuts, and now I've got no one to talk about the disappointment with.

"Then it takes..."

Every time i get coffee on my 30 min break, it takes 15 mins to stand in line to get the coffee. Then it takes 15 mins for it to cool off enough to take a sip. So i take one sip then my break is over.

"I want to rearrange my living room..."

I want to rearrange my living room but my electric leather couches have to be plugged in order to recline and charge my phone and this set up is the only way they can be plugged in to the wall without the cords showing.

"I ordered..."

I ordered a laptop from Amazon on Sunday, it said it wouldn't be here until next Tuesday, because of this pandemic nonsense. Checked the shipping, and it gave me the option of upgrading to one-day shipping for free Hell yeah! Clicked that. Now it wont show up until Thursday.

Let's be honest, most of us don't read the Terms and Conditions before we click that little "I Agree" button. Most of you probably aren't even going to read this intro.

A huge chunk of you are going to open this article and immediately scroll to "the meat" because we're all about getting to the good stuff. But that rush can sometimes mean missing out on some seriously important tidbits of info.

Death is scary. It brings the unknown of the great beyond, whether that's heaven, some other afterlife, or total nothingness, depending on what you believe.

But there is one perk that comes with death: total control of your funeral.

After we've watched a movie, it can be difficult to imagine the film as a project that took months or years to finally culminate into the product we see at the theater or on our television.

But it was built and hacked together, piece by piece.
