Having to call a call center in order to send someone a rudimentary text message.
Having all of your friends closest to you get eaten alive by saber tooth tigers or brutally beaten to death by Neanderthals.
Mauling by wild animals is not a first world problem.
IT IS IF I WANT IT TO BE
No it isn't. A quick review of the available statistical evidence on animal attacks--let alone death by this cause--quickly reveals that this is not and has never been a major challenge for first world societies of any definition.
Well it is for my first world society.
Hang on wocky, let me get out my Encyclopedia Britannica to pull those statistics for you. Now which flippin' volume was it in? And is it under "Deaths, Animal Attacks" or "Animal Attacks, deaths from?" ugh I hate looking stuff up in these things.
also who the hell scrambled the drawers in the library card catalogue? not cool, dude.
Hang on, let me meta crawler it; we can grab lunch in the meantime.
I want to see Frozen on Thanksgiving Day. The website for the cinema I want to see it at does not have listing for Thursday yet. On the off chance, I called the movie line the cinema website listed. They haven't updated the weekly schedule since October 11. So I'd say that "problem" is RIP.

Oh, having that stupid metal slidey thing on a floppy dented was terrible. Used to get my drive jammed all the time.
One of my favorite Christmas presents (back when I really enjoyed the holiday) of all time was when my mom bought me & my brother a bundle of TDK blank cassettes, because we were running so low with what we had, and we just had to continue taping various programming.
You know when disks used to get stuck in my hard drive? When it was a McIntosh computer and the power went out, because some idiot didn't think to build a manual disk eject button.
I don't think those words mean what you want them to mean.
Well, whatever you call that thing where you put floppy disks. The floppy drive? And then hard disks went in the hard drive? Something.
The cook died of dysentery, and our wagon lost a wheel.
And Joker got away.
The cutting edge gifs on this website are really giving my 56k a hard time: http://www2.warnerbros.com/spacejam/movie/jam.htm
The cord not being long enough on the cable TV channel changer
The American parallel of yoga needed to hold the radio antenna in exactly right position to capture the signal clearly.
