Yes they do. And to compound the problem, I sometimes skip one song too far on my MP3 player and have to skip back two songs.

Re: First World Problems

The second world is places like the USSR (when it existed) and places like Cuba and North Korea.

My 1st world problem...

I was at a theme park today (SeaWorld on Australia's Gold Coast) and the bright sunlight meant I couldn't see the screen quite as clearly on my Samsung Galaxy Note II when I was posting on Facebook.

Wah wah wah.

The power button on the top of my iPhone is jammed. I have to make sure my battery is always charged, because if my phone ever dies, I will be unable to turn it back on.
If it dies due to lack of charge, it comes back on automatically once you plug it in, no problem... takes a while though. I suppose you will only ever need to switch it back on if you actually manage to switch it off.

My first world problem... ate too much pizza the day before and still suffering heartburn.

Re: First World Problems

My name was below the fold on the office copier/scanner and it took me five minutes to figure out how to delete someone above me in the list so that my name would be on the front page and not require me to scroll.

I'm not an ass, I deleted a person's duplicate account, their main one is still there.

I can't believe how much my quality of life has worsened since I stopped working in a place with a professional copier.

People are fighting over who gets to go with me for the ST:XII premiere when secretly I want to go on my own.

Re: First World Problems

I bruised half of my right shin slamming off a little quarter pipe in the skatepark, and why did they have to make this quarter pipe with such a small coping so that when you do a bs disaster your board misses the rail, you go flying forwards and your board cuts into ones shin?

This is so annoying because now my shin is all messed up and though the bleeding has stopped and I cleaned it down with some water and soap, what if it is infected and even if it isn't should I get some antibiotics which may do some good if there is an infection and if there isn't then there's all this hoo-ha about wasting antibiotics which causes all these superbugs to form.

Please help me because I am too stupid and lazy to think for myself, and I am so desperate over two grazes that I will consider any help or advice given by anyone!

I went to the grocery store and they didn't have the breakfast sausages that I like so much. I had to buy a lesser brand.

Do you get that often? People fighting over you?

Re: First World Problems

I was playing a game of Pool online, and was on course to beat my highest score. Then I got three in-offs in a row and it all went to crap.

*anguish*

Re: First World Problems

It's a cold war zone that the Federation and the Romulans agree not to enter, a forced separation of the two which avoids nasty accusations of incursions of territory.
