The Telegraph said:

Earphones becoming tangled in your bag, Weetabix not fitting into a round breakfast bowl and being in-between dress sizes after losing weight have been named on a list of common 'first world problems'.

Other issues which plague us daily amid our hi-tech, pampered lives include Pimms not being sufficiently chilled, the cleaner taking a day off and the glare of the sun affecting the screen of our laptops, phones or tablets.

Snagging designer clothing, the area we live in being too nice for a corner shop which sells cheap wine and having to stand up to reach for a cup on the coffee table also made the list.

Oh man, I would pit screen glare against any problem the third world could throw at me. :P

Too true. The tv media which the first-worlders are subjected to insulates them from the real problems of life which will eventually come back to bite the lives of their kids in the derrier. It's a strange problem.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

Idiots spamming your fave website with links for 'deluxe kitchens' is a real problem too.  And food from the microwave being so damn hot it burns your tongue off.  And neighbours with a parrot that won't stop singing.  I could go on for days.  It's my age, I think.
