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.

XyloArch

"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.

heavymetalmater

"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.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
