You know you shouldn't complain. Something doesn't go your way, like maybe they messed up your order at the coffee shop or the new pair of boots you bought don't quite fit the way they did when you tried them on in the store, and you get angry. Really, really angry. But there's no need to fret, right? "First World Problems?" Let it all go. We got it made.

...Except you can't let it go, and it eats at you until you have to post it online.


Reddit user, u/Plummles, wanted to know what you're not ashamed to have an issue with when they asked:

What's a First World problem you're not ashamed to complain about?

That's Roughly $1,800, For You Americans

My internet service dropping out at 'peak hours'. If I [pay] for 30 mbps, I should get 30 mbps, and ISPs should work harder to make sure that happens.

People calling me when texting would suffice

People texting me, when a phone call would be more efficient is my pet peeve.

Why Is This Not The Norm?

Having to actively decide to eat healthy.

F you salads.

This is really true in the US. The default when eating out is unhealthy, oversized portions. The healthy section of the menu is often little more than lip service.

Being Asked To Choose

Giphy

The paradox of choice.

Basically, yes, if you have a lot of job/partner/food/house/apartment/etc. options in life, obviously you're privileged. But it's also been proven that having too many options can be very stressful. Instead of appreciating what you chose, you regret what you didn't choose. A simple analogy is the difference between a restaurant with a small menu and one with a huge menu. You think you'd have a better experience at the one with the huge menu, since you have more options, but often you'll actually have a worse experience there because the process of making a choice and accepting it is more stressful than it would be at the restaurant with the small menu.

That's a First World Problem that takes many forms. Who should I date? Where should I live? Where should I go to college? What should I do for a living? What should I have for lunch today? What should I watch on Netflix tonight? What streaming service should I subscribe to? What movie should we go see? Where should we go on vacation? Etc.

Having these options is awesome. I wouldn't trade it for anything. But the human brain doesn't always respond to it in a positive way.

If you've never seen the comedy classic, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," there is a scene where Arthur, King of the Britons, encounters a black knight guarding a bridge. Arthur quickly figures out the stalwart knight will not let him pass, so the two do battle, with the king severely injuring his enemy in the process.

He cuts off all his arms and legs.

Yet the black knight persists, insisting his injuries are, "but a scratch."

Turns out this happens to people in real life, not so much with swords and knights, but with can openers and ice skates.

We are currently in a market that favors workers over employers – many workers feel empowered to seek out different positions and have reevaluated what they want in their careers amid the financial fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many workers left their jobs in search of greener pastures because they were ready for a change, and others were more than happy to leave behind toxic workplaces that only burned them out.

As you can imagine, they've become rather adept at noticing red flags during the interview process and beyond.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor taylortaylortaylorrr asked the online community,

"What is a red flag from an employer that people might not immediately recognize as a red flag?"

Computers are not everyone's strong suit. Generation z is now reaching adulthood, and they've had computers, smart phones, and iPads since birth.

For anyone in an older generation, this wasn't the case. Computers weren't even advertised for the home until the Superbowl of 1984, and even then it was priced at $2,500.

Come the turn of the 21st century, computers are a staple in the home, but the advancements in the last two decades have left some people scrambling to keep up. Things that might seem basic to some are shockingly uncommon to others.
