First World problems
I was sitting at my desk and swearing (quietly) at my iPhone for taking forever to update to iOS 7. My phone isn’t the newest – I bought it used for cheap – so it certainly was taking its sweet time. Clearly, it was a pretty bad case of firstworldproblemitis.
First World Problem, noun
Problems from living in a wealthy, industrialized nation that third worlders would probably roll their eyes at.
Example: My 7 dollar starbucks latte came with ONE espresso shot instead of the TWO I asked for!
We all run into small problems that irritate us to no end – but it’s important to put things into perspective. Anyone who lives in North America and is relatively healthy should be dancing in the streets – we live long lives surrounded by wealth and can change our destiny with relative easy by going to school. Most people in the world would be happy to have our everyday problems. Canada is ranked very highly in terms of income mobility. And we have universal health care to boot.
Enjoy your weekend and enjoy life in general!
