36 Unbelievably Tragic First World Problems

1 of 37
1intro

Sometimes, when we’re down on our luck, we let the smallest things get to us. Maybe we should remember that there are people who are homeless and freezing in Detroit. Or that there are hungry children a world away who would give anything to have a bite to eat. Or maybe we should remember that fatal diseases claim the lives of millions every day. Here are some terrible first world problems I have heard.

No. 36 I accidentally clicked Internet Explorer! Now I have to wait.

No. 36 I accidentally clicked Internet Explorer! Now I have to wait.

Sadface. At least you have a computer. At least you have internet. Unless you’re the President, an extra 2 minutes of your time shouldn’t be a problem.

No. 35 I can't find the dude I like on Facebook.

No. 35 I can't find the dude I like on Facebook.

That tragic moment when everyone in the photo is tagged except for the guy that you want to stalk. Even more tragic is the moment when he does have a Facebook and all his photos are blocked. Get over it.

No. 34 I can't get comfortable!

No. 34 I can't get comfortable!

Let me get this straight. You have a nice couch or bed and you can’t get comfortable in it? You don’t have to sleep on the ground or outside and you’re complaining?

No. 33 I can’t find the remote!

No. 33 I can’t find the remote!

This one’s a real shame. You are at home and your remote is nowhere to be found. You can’t use the darn remote in your bedroom because it’s not the same. Now, you need to do the unfathomable: get up and turn on the TV yourself! OMG, life must be hard.

No. 32 I don't want to go to work

No. 32 I don't want to go to work

Hey, at least you have a job. To put it in perspective, the unemployment rate in the United States is at 7.3%. I’m sure Willie, the bum down by the river, would trade spots with you in a heartbeat.

No. 31 I have all this food in the fridge but can’t decide what to eat.

No. 31 I have all this food in the fridge but can’t decide what to eat.

Just look at the picture. It explains it all.

No. 30 I have too many Uggs and no more space in my closet!

No. 30 I have too many Uggs and no more space in my closet!

Really? You can maybe donate some Uggs to Goodwill or you can probably buy a new closet to put them in. If you can afford all these Uggs, you can afford a new closet.

No. 29 I have no food.

No. 29 I have no food.

It’s not that you cannot afford food, it’s that you’re too lazy to go out and get food. Here’s an idea: Go to the grocery store or use your measly fingers to order takeout. We know that crap is delivered all over the US.

No. 28 I just got in the shower, but I have to poop!

No. 28 I just got in the shower, but I have to poop!

Nobody likes to sit on the toilet with a wet butt. It’s not a pleasant experience. It also isn’t something we should complain about. At least you’re not in the car and about to have explosive diarrhea. At least you have a toilet and not a hole in the ground.

No. 27 I just used my last Pandora skip.

No. 27 I just used my last Pandora skip.

Mute it and listen to something else. Or suffer through one song you don’t like. It won’t kill you.

No. 26 I slept in too late on my day off. Now I have less time to do nothing.

No. 26 I slept in too late on my day off. Now I have less time to do nothing.

Boo hoo. You got too much sleep. Now you have to wake up at 11 a.m and you only have 10 hours to sit on your butt and do nothing.

No. 25 I want to turn the lights off, but my bed is too comfy.

No. 25 I want to turn the lights off, but my bed is too comfy.

Must be rough having a comfy bed to sleep in.

No. 24 I wanted Chick-Fil-A but it’s Sunday!

No. 24 I wanted Chick-Fil-A but it’s Sunday!

Though this seemingly happens a lot, it is not a problem. Drive yourself to another drive-thru and get Chick-Fil-A tomorrow. Everything will be ok!

No. 23 I'm fat!

No. 23 I'm fat!

Unless you have some genetic issue that prevents you from losing weight, you shouldn’t complain about this. Either go to the gym or eat healthier. Or, if you’re happy being a little plump, that's totally cool but just STOP COMPLAINING.

No. 22 I had to put 6 whole dollars in the tip jar before anyone noticed.

No. 22 I had to put 6 whole dollars in the tip jar before anyone noticed.

You shouldn’t tip for someone to notice. You should tip to be nice. Fools.

No 21. It's not fair!

No 21. It's not fair!

Life’s not fair. Get over it.

No. 20 My iced mocha frappuccino has too much ice in it!

No. 20 My iced mocha frappuccino has too much ice in it!

Really? This is something you’re going to complain about? If you could afford to dish out $5 for an iced latte, why don’t you just go and buy another one?

No 19. My laptop is dying and the charger is all the way upstairs.

No 19. My laptop is dying and the charger is all the way upstairs.

I actually see two bright sides to this scenario:

1. When you go upstairs, you may burn a few calories.

2. You actually have a two story house. That’s pretty awesome.

No. 18 My makeup won't come off.

No. 18 My makeup won't come off.

Here’s an idea: Either buy some good makeup remover wipes or stop wearing so much eyeliner and mascara!

No. 17 My seat warmer in my car isn't warming up fast enough.

No. 17 My seat warmer in my car isn't warming up fast enough.

You have seat warmers! That’s a blessing in and of itself!

No. 16 My smartphone changed my text!

No. 16 My smartphone changed my text!

This one must be so rough for people. Your smartphone is trying to make you type in proper English. Oh the horror.

No. 15 That fart was so smelly!

No. 15 That fart was so smelly!

Someone just let one rip. Let’s complain about it! First of all, at least you have a sense of smell. I'll bet your grandma would love to smell a fart again. Second of all, what’s not funny about a fart? It smells, makes noise and comes out of your butt! Farts rock.

No. 14 There's a line at the bar I wanted to go to.

No. 14 There's a line at the bar I wanted to go to.

I hear this way too much. There are 30 other bars on the same street. They serve the same drinks. Go there!

No. 13 They were out of regular pop, so I had to get diet!

No. 13 They were out of regular pop, so I had to get diet!

Either way, pop isn’t good for you. Go rain on someone else’s parade. We don’t care.

No. 12 Ugh, I just got my period.

No. 12 Ugh, I just got my period.

Be happy, you’re not pregnant. Get some Midol and Hershey bars and shut up.

No. 11 I have too many chips for my dip.

No. 11 I have too many chips for my dip.

This is not a curse. It’s a blessing. You get to enjoy more tortilla chips or Lays. They’re magically delicious by themselves.

No. 10 I'm too lazy to grab a computer so I'll use my phone, but it's so slow.

No. 10 I'm too lazy to grab a computer so I'll use my phone, but it's so slow.

(Face palm.)

No. 9 There’s a re-run on tonight! I have to wait 'till next week?

No. 9 There’s a re-run on tonight! I have to wait 'till next week?

Your favorite show has a re-run on tonight. How will your life go on? You have to wait another week watching other cable television programs. Your life is tragic.

No. 8 This is the worst day ever!

No. 8 This is the worst day ever!

I hear this all the time. I am pretty sure it would be the worst day ever if you died. That’s really all I can think of that qualifies as the “worst day ever”. And if you’re dead, you won’t be able to mutter these sad, sad words.

No. 7 The paparazzi have been following me all day!

No. 7 The paparazzi have been following me all day!

You’re famous. You most likely chose to be famous and knew your life would be lived in the public eye. Buy yourself a new Mercedes and get over it.

No. 6 You don't have sparkling water.

No. 6 You don't have sparkling water.

OMG, now you will have to be a normal person and drink tap water! The world is over!

No. 5 The line is too long!

No. 5 The line is too long!

I hear this way too much! Either get out of line and go back at a later time or shut your yapper.

No. 4 I have nothing to wear.

No. 4 I have nothing to wear.

"I have nothing to wear". Says the person with a closet full of clothes. People seem to think that you can only wear an outfit once these days.

No 3. I didn't get the new iPhone. Mine's not the newest anymore!

No 3. I didn't get the new iPhone. Mine's not the newest anymore!

Apple fanatics are famous for this phrase. Their phone plan doesn't have an upgrade for another year and they can't get this year's iPhone without dishing out $500. I feel so bad that you have to play with your old phone...

No. 2 My phone charger won't reach my bed.

No. 2 My phone charger won't reach my bed.

Boo hoo. Now you have to get up and pick up your phone when your alarm goes off. It's not the end of the world.

No. 1 I lost in the video game!

No. 1 I lost in the video game!

We especially here this from teenage boys and our boyfriends who act like teenagers. It's just a freakin' game!

    God, the advertising on this page is annoying. I know you want to monetize this stuff, but having an ad pop up over the bottom of every picture, especially when there’s critical content being covered up, was enough to make me leave the site after 6 slides. Later.

    • Farva55

      Lol. You came to this article to READ it seriously? Hilarious.

  • Gerardo Martinez

    Everything is funny and i really enjoyed the captions but it was all ruined when i read your section. Jeez you sound like that one asshole who HAS to have a shitty life so that other will pity you. OMG every little complaint you have is responded with that you should be grateful or whatever. SMH you fail at life.

    • Allie Walton

      Are you on your period? Obviously the author will tell it like it is because these people complaining about unimportant problems are idiots.

  • janine

    I thought this link would be funny but the author just sounds like an ass. You have the world’s easiest job writing stupid articles for “RantChic.com” What do YOU have to whine about?

  • Nikki Schojan

    Whoever does these lists needs a xanax. A tad hostile. Some of these are spot on but there’s a few that are uh.. You can tell a man wrote this. “Be happy you’re not pregnant get some midol and chocolate bar and shut up.” I hope you never get a gf or wife that has extremely painful periods and then say that to her, I hope she kicks you in the dick over and over again. Here’s a problem you’re whining about other people whining and all you do is make up stupid lists for a website and hunt down pictures. Suck it up bro. Also, I’m pretty damn sure that you and EVERYONE that is saying “oh these people are complaining about stupid shit” have, indeed, complained about one or almost all of the things listed.

    • Farva55

      Pipe down, Nikki. I was annoyed 5 words in.

      • Nikki Schojan

        Was that all you could read? lolol.

        • Farva55

          WOW! You’re comeback was MUCH more intelligent than I would give you credit for! Man o man! 6th grade quality? MAYBE 7th- but I don’t know if I can push it that high.

          • Racket

            @farva55:disqus I highly doubt she was insulting you in any which way. Now I think you’re just being a pretentious jack-ass looking for people to antagonize on the internet.

            Btw, you used the wrong “your”.

            And yes, I did sign up here just to say this.

  • Marissa D

    you all realize this broad probably gets paid to piss you people off… so she’ll take her check to the bank, and you can keep making fun of her job… and keep reading the shit you’re making fun of.

    Do people not understand sarcasm? This is a joke, maybe you people need a Xanax, not the author.

    • Farva55

      Every website on the planet has writers that will “be paid to piss people off.” That isn’t news. Everyone is allowed an opinion. If you don’t like someone’s, feel free to share some links to your blogs or write on the site you complain about.

  • esmeralda ♡

    Farva needs to go on somewhere, obviously she has no life commenting on all these pics.

  • xCromo

    Ok, but half of the whole entire USA donates to kids like this EVERY single day. People, do help.. Our reality is just much more productive, the homeless people just gave up. It’s so hard to live on a street even without a family. Just go get your damn social security card, and your birth certificate. People say its so hard to get a job.. Lol just actually work and dont be a bum unless you want to actually be one. Its not hard to get a job at all. Look at all the illegal immigrants. They arnt doing bad, So why are the homeless people who have US citizenship not trying? They try to eat and stay alive of course, with the help of standing on a sidewalk giving depression to people around them for money. Anyone and everyone can survive, its just the will power to do so. Homeless people ran away from that, so they deserve what they are. I’m not saying I don’t like helping people, but our life is better then others right? Or is that your opinion? Shit, I live everyday with constant stress, and anxiety from trying to keep the things I have. I mean.. I barely have time to eat in a day, some days I go two or three days of starvation so I can pay my bills. Sad thing is, I choose to do this too.. I’m not anorexic (When I eat man.. I EAT) I just can’t afford it. Do you see me complaining that other people have it better then me? No. Every comment on each of these pictures is not necessary. Annoying rather. How about you give up everything you got and start donating 500$ a week for the rest of your life if you care so much.

    • Allie Walton

      Well said!

  • xCromo

    Example:
    This is how every picture sums out to be..

    Me: Ahh, what nice day outside.

    Farva: Well atleast you get to go outside, sometimes when poor people go outside they get heat stroke, because their so hungry.

    Me: I should probably clip my nails tonight.

    Farva: Atleast you have nail clippers some people who are POOR can’t even obtain that kind of technology.

    Me: Brb, gotta pee.

    Farva: ATLEAST you got to drink something today, even poor people can’t drink water!

    Me: I just farted.

    Farva: Once upon a time there was this poor fellow, he was so poor, that he couldn’t even fart.

    • Farva55

      Says the vag who doesn’t have the stones to put a screen name attached so you wouldn’t get the response? LOL. Hilarious.

    • Farva55

      Also, learn the english language.

  • Melissa Hamari

    Regina Phalange – FRIENDS fan, much?

  • Dorkus_Amorkus

    Can’t believe I read a lot of these before realizing how unfunny they were. List as journalism is a horrible new trend. Unfunny ones, even worse.
