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

I Need To Spend Hours Surfing Nowhere NOW

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

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.

Non-menstruating people of the world, please take note: Menstrual products, generally speaking, do not come in different flavors.

We know the colors and patterns might make it seem that way—and we're a little bit disappointed, too—but no, we are not out here with packs of Starburst-esque pads.

Being in the service industry is an incredibly difficult career. It is not for the lazy or faint of heart. In fact it has been scientifically proven that it takes an emotional toll on the soul, the body and most especially the mind. So what could possibly make a server reject the coin they are working for?
