We all have them. This is a place to share your current or favorite 1st world problems.

My current first world problem. The TV I want to buy is too big to fit into either my or my girlfriends car since we both drive 2 door convertibles. And I don't want to be uncomfortable and drive with the top down that far... And delivery wouldn't get it here until monday

The hard drive on my computer decided to fucking cease operating. I lost all of my documents, photos, music etc. Remember when hard copies existed? Don't try to tell me I should purchase an external hard drive or use a cloud service. I will punch you in the throat. I fucking know!

As someone with a similar problem.. I had to buy a new computer.

Do you know there is no easy way to transfer files from one Windows 10 computer to another? WTH man!? All I wanted was my flipping research and my half-assed website. I have to upload to a cloud service, then download it to the new one!

Fucken hell man.

My printer jammed, instead of getting up to fix it. I hand wrote out what I was going to print out.

It was my nephew speech for his 4th grade living museum.

In my defence, the printer is in another room hooked up to the router.

My espresso machine is acting up and it takes like a whole 4 minutes to get a hot steaming cup instead of 30 seconds. Fuck my life!

I bought a lawnmower on craigslist. Drove home but couldn't get it off my truck alone. I called a couple of neighbors for a hand and went inside. A couple of hours later The bigot across the street called to say he was home and would be over in 15-20 minutes. I went outside to wait for him. I had to call him back and say nevermind- the lawnmower had been unloaded and disappeared by someone.

I have so many going on right now

I should have gotten the big case of Starbucks frappucinos from Costco

Why must keurig cups cost so damn much and why don't they have more variety packs? I am just not some one who wants to drink the same flavored coffee. So now I must go and get different flavored creamers. It's a racket I tell you.

I don't want to go to the mall for the semi annuals sales. I would rather order the stuff online but the thought of paying shipping and handling, I Just Can't Do It!

As for the coffee - I too had a keurig and loved it, til I had to buy refills and realized how much I was spending.

They actually cost way more than your standard coffee pot and give you a lot less for your buck. I did the math years ago, and that 5.99 canister of Folgers actually cost roughly .18/cup in a standard coffee pot/machine.

I've soared way above the Keurig by now. After drinking out of a standard coffee machine for so long, ive come to learn that the French Press is the way to go! makes 3-4 cups, but HOLY SHIT THE FLAVOR!!!!! it accentuates the raw coffee flavor, and now I barely need sugar in mine when ive been using 2 teaspoons per cup my whole life!

I'm just going to assume you don't know how a french press works as most of my friends dont. if you do, just ignore all this:

If you're interested - about 19.99-24.00 w shipping.

1. boil water until that moment where you can see all the little bubbles, right before boiling point
2. Fill the French Press with 2-3 tablespoons of your desired coffee grounds - coarse ground coffee is preferred.
3. Pour the near boiling point water in the French Press, AND let it sit for about 3 minutes, at least. This is called steeping.
4. Take the top sliding part f your French Press, make sure its all thew way up, put the lid on, slide it all the way down slowly. This pushes all the grounds to the bottom, separating it from your coffee.
5. Enjoy your coffee, but dont take the entire last sip of the cup unless youre using coarse grounds. sometimes the sneaky bastards sneak in your cup at the very bottom. Its the only downside of The French Press.

It brings out the rich creaminess of even a standard folgers brand and makes it awesome! even tastes a bit chocolatey somehow, in my opinion.

ALSO: I have a bunch of "empty" keurig pods, where you load up your own grounds into them, then load your shell in the keurig. its A LOT CHEAPER than buying pods. Id be more than happy to send some your way if you're interested.

Oh thank you thank you! I may have to check it out! I have the empty ones I think I have like 3 I just need to stop forgetting about them and get the loose coffee because it really is cost efficient. I was just mister saddened that they didn't have the combo pack they usually have. I hate having 100 of the same Flavor. I shall be at the supermarket getting different flavored creamer. Le sigh. So many struggles in the world and this is my issue.

Hehe don't feel feel bad. We all have our little struggles vs our real struggles. Life wouldn't be life any other way :D

Tbh I feel bad for my little struggles right now.... 10 week summer vacation but I'm so peeling from sunburn recovery I don't even want to go out. LOL I'm actually molting like a bird! Couple more days though.... Then I can enjoy my time off proper. This is my biggest gripe while everyone else is still working the grind. My petty struggles are nothing compared to what everyone else goes through daily, I feel you. That's life :)
