First World Problems are not problems

There is a hashtag on Twitter – #FirstWorldProblems – that pokes fun at the hardships of the privileged. For example, you dropped in at Woolies Cafe for a soy chai latte and the soy stocks had unfortunately run low so you proceed to broadcast to your friends and followers a little something like this:

“O.M.G! Never shopping at Woolies again – was craving soy, but had to force myself to go 2% fat instead. FML. #FirstWorldProblems”.

According to Business Insider:

DDB New York has created an ad for the Haitian charity “Water Is Life”… In the video (below), ordinary Haitians — standing amid shanty huts, broken school buses and wrecked buildings — read the inane tweets of self-entitled idiots who complain about phone cords that won’t reach their beds, and leather car seats that aren’t heated.

Makes you think. You do complain about the most trivial stuff, don’t you?

Now stop complaining that iOS 6 has forced you to lose the tethering option or how much you preferred Google Maps over the Apple version. You have access to clean running water…


Today there is lot of contingent situation which force individuals to take medicaments. You can get medicines from the comfort of your office. Last ten years there are divers medicines to treat dementia, anxiety disorder or inflammation. Certain medicines are used to prevent bronchitis in men with weak immune systems caused by cancer treatment. There are medicines intended only for them. What about side effects of cialis for daily use and sexual soundness problems? What do you already know about cialis daily side effects? Probably you already know something about it.

    If I am not mistaken the hastag #FirstWorldProblems was originally created to poke fun at the empty lives of those who live in the first world and allow them to realise that their problems aren’t that big.

    how did NOBODY ELSE figure out that first world problems aren’t real problems?
    it’s almost as if they were using that phrase as… some sort of joke.
