First world problems can be categorized as frustrations and complaints from living in a wealthy, industrialized nation that third worlders would probably roll their eyes at. These come in the form of comments such as, “Da hell. I just paid $45 to fill up my Escalade. #FML”

In the grand scheme of things, first world problems are trivial, and inconsequential. The video above conveys this point very clearly.


Internet memes pertaining to first world problems have popped up all over the internet.


A number of books have also surfaced on the subject. These are the two that we found rather hilarious.
