First world problems.

My coworker and i have become addicted to making jokes out of our complaints.  I am completely pro-whining, but in a non-serious lighthearted way.  I know that i am super fortunate, but sometimes complaining and laughing at yourself is thereputic.
Thus i bring you: 


FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS.


1.  I ate an english muffin for breakfast, and i am still starving.  I could go get a second english muffin, but it's all the way upstairs....
FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS.


2.  I over-indulged in waffle fries and champagne last night, and now i feel miserable, and don't want to run tonight.  And i want more waffle fries and champagne.
FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS.


3.  Matt couldn't stop eating the waffle fries long enough to let me photograph them, therefore ruining my picture.
FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS.


4.  I went to pick up my birth control, and it turns out the new insurance doesn't cover it, and no one told me.  Now i have to waste time out of my life to make an appt with the doctor, and go to that appt to figure out what the hell my insurance will cover.
FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS.


5.  I only have two pairs of compression socks, so i have to do laundry every other day, or wear normal socks.  Both of these options are unacceptable.


FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS.


6. I miss wearing cute running skirts, but i have to wear pants because its cold still.  It's not fair.  Next time i see a groundhog, i am kicking it. 


FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS.


7. Today waffles tried to eat (or play with?) another dog's poop.  Do you have any idea what its like to wrestle another dog's poop out of your dog's mouth?  at 4am?  Not the way to start your day.  Also, pick up after your dog!


FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS.


8.  I really want candy, but my office has a health initiative in action, so now i have to settle for string cheese.
FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS.


9.  Girl scout cookies.  Why aren't you here yet???  Seriously, WHERE ARE YOU?!?!?!
FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS!!!!!

    1. dude, between running in them, sleeping in them, eating in them, and lounging in them, i've realized that i've got problems. And that we are BOTH classy.

    1. You're not that far i think. I'll bring a spoon! (but yeah, they took away the vending machine because if we all lose weight, our insurance goes down. Why don't people just run to counter their excessive junk food intake like i do??)

  4. How about, I want more details about the Get Lucky race, but the web site isn't up yet!

    Also, regarding the compression socks, get compression calf sleeves, and then you can wear them with whatever socks, and you only have to wash the socks. I mean, at some point it would probably be a good idea to wash the sleeves, but probably only if you run in them.

  6. Champagne and waffle fries sound so perfect right about now! I think I may have to indulge in both this weekend, now that it's in my head :)

    1. Just make sure to do it after any running! (or just have a normal human-sized portion, unlike myself!)

  7. Ha! A lot of times I do complain about things that are SO First World Problems. The poop thing? Ha ha ha! And - ew.

    I would love to hear more about the health initiative at work. Are people not allowed to have candy out or something?
