I recently started watching Frasier on Netflix. My son was disgusted at my choice of Frasier because he said it’s “rich guy humor” and it’s all about “First World Problems”. I had to look up what First World Problems meant, and I guess I have to agree with him. I’m still going to watch it though. lol! I really just needed something mindless to watch when I can’t sleep. I think the show does a great job of poking fun at Frasier and Niles and their silly “problems”.
If you want a chuckle (or maybe a shudder?) you can see what all the terrible First World Problems (FWPs) are that plague privileged people at http://first-world-problems.com/ – be warned that there are some bad words on some of them. There’s also some questionable content at this site, but I found a few First World Problem cards that made me laugh out loud.
I’ll admit that I’ve said this one before.
I’ve even used this one. I really don’t like pickles on my sandwiches!
Totally guilty of this one!
How about this one? I always complain about putting groceries away.
This last one might be our biggest “problem” around here.
Even though I’m being silly about this topic, I still think it’s a good one for a Memory Monday. What do we complain about in our lives that could be viewed as a “First World Problem”? When people have serious issues like hunger, homelessness, and disease, it pretty much puts the slow internet connection complaint to shame. I feel lucky to have such “problems” and I’m glad my son made me think about this in a new light.
