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.

Oh No! Who Is Going To Fix All Of Our Tablets At Home?

Doing tech support, for free, for my entire family.

I felt this in my soul. Just because I work in tech software doesn't mean I know everything about tech hardware

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.

Most of the time, dress codes are there for a reason. Sure, there are the unfair instances of "no spaghetti straps at school" and "no jeans at the office". But at the same time, there are certain work environments that don't call for inappropriate wear. And when you go in for that first interview, you've got to leave a good impression.

Nothing gives you a shock to the system quite like moving away from home for the first time. Maybe you're one of many in a college dorm. Perhaps you're living with roommates somewhere. Or you might be enjoying the pleasure of having your own place for the first time.

On a recent visit to Toronto, Tom Felton—the actor behind Draco Malfoy from the Harry Potter franchise—shared a hilariously self-deprecating shot from his visit to a Harry Potter exhibit.

While there, Felton donned a Slytherin robe and posed next to a picture of his younger self as Malfoy, looking...well, a bit rough around the edges.

"We apologize for the inconvenience."

Even if it's minor, sometimes, that inconvenience can be the most annoying, awful, grating moment of your entire life.

Such as when you're sitting on the subway and you stop in the tunnel for over a minute with no cell service and you want to rip your own skin off with a serrated knife.

Nah...not today. Not. Today.

Ever had that thing happen where you know you simply cannot stay where you are at that moment in time? Where the world has changed and become so awkward and unsafe that you just gotta run away as soon as humanly possible?

We are still fighting the fight for young boys to be able to express themselves without fear of judgement from the outside world.

Unfortunately, young boys are still pretty aware they may become targets based on how they choose to express themselves.
