...And Then I Threw a First World Fit

I saw this post a while back, from Nadine over at Back East Blonde and I was inspired to create my own edition.

"#firstworldprobs" is probably one of my favorite hashtags. 
When Nadine took it a step further and acknowledged that our first world problems often turn into, well, an even bigger problem, "First World Fits" was born. 
It's a thing. And she invented it.

Have you ever read another blog post and thought to yourself, 
"Dang, I wish I would've thought of that!"?
This was one of those.
...Cause first world fits happen to me on the reg.

These include, but are not limited to:

-Having to change my password at work every three days four weeks. 
Forgetting said new password. 
Getting locked out of your computer. 

Throw a fit. 

CTRL+ALT I hate you! 
-"Eco-friendly" water bottles that crunch up in your hand as soon as you grab hold of one, cause it's made with 99.9% less plastic.

First world fit. 

Your bottled water is a pain in my @$$, Kroger. 
Way too noisy. 

-Pepsi products instead of Coke. 
Not happy. 

-No cell phone service in Downtown Phoenix. 
I can't check my Instagram feed, Tweet things that aren't important, or log onto FB in order to avoid work responsibilities. 

Fits. All day.
-Real Housewives of New Jersey isn't On Demand anymore.
You mean I can't watch a TV show at my own personal convenience and I have to actually sit down and watch regularly scheduled programming?
Unbelievable, Cox. I hate you too.

-It's taking 3 hours to download the new iOS7?
I want my new operating system and I want it now.

I understand there's starving children in Africa, a hole in the Ozone layer (or something), and a potential government shutdown looming...but the idea of not being able to upload a picture of my lunch because Instagram "couldn't refresh feed", is almost unbearable.

Don't lie.
You've done these too.
