It's a "First World problems" thread, Reilly - I don't have to have a solution! :-)

I was hitchhiking back from Yosemite once (couldn't afford the gas let alone the car), and this Israeli guy gives me a ride (he negotiated for a place to stay). His family would be what we would consider upper class. During the long drive home I'm telling him about the problems I'd had with my moms used portable dishwasher and was asking for his help. (he was in university at the Technion and was also clearly smarter than me). He was unable conceive of the issue or the repair and told me that NO ONE had dishwashers back home. NO ONE. Too expensive. I'm like, "but my mom is poor and has a portable dishwasher....uhhh. " It made me consider the US standard of living.

I am sooo over taking the garbage/recycling/green barrel to the curb every week.

Ha! I'm so over the fact that I have to separate into more than barrel and the cans and bottles are expected to be rinsed.

I'm a telecommuter, and had to suffer through a few minutes of boredom, waiting for a file from another telecommuting co-worker, because her Internet connection drops when she uses her microwave. Upgrade your home wireless router already. Sheesh.

I just moved to LA, and the best climbing gym near my house is small, poorly ventilated, and chalk-dust fills the air. I have to wait for weekends or rearrange my weekday schedule to climb outside in beautiful sunshine and clean air.

Gluten free bread from the freezer aisle.

Can't get the slices apart until it thaws some. Attempts to butterknife it apart have had crumby results.

Damn I want a sammich.

I did not want to click "remember my password" on facebook, since I am at work. Ended up having to log in twice today. Life is rough.

Saw a TV ad for a pancake pan, looks like an oversized "camping pie" iron...the pitch includes shots of the DISASTERS that can occur while trying to use a spatula to flip pancakes....this gizmo, you flip THE WHOLE PAN....

Another FWP.....the cat doesn't like dry food so has to be fed canned....

Had to wait an HOUR in a HOT waiting room to see my doctor

That is for sure a first world problem. Two weeks ago, I had to walk three blocks in the searing heat to the ER in David, Panama. Cool, comfortable AC inside, and I only had to wait ten minutes to see the doctor. Total time spent, one hour. Total cost, thirty dollars.

Brandon, your total cost was less than my co pay. Good times

Vitaliy, the wife and I decided to take in something defined as "fast Casual" as we have been married for awhile. Maybe Qdoba or Chipotle mmmm
