First World Problems

I have a friend who often uses the phrase First World Problems.  I think he is right.  So often, we think we have a real problem, when in reality this is nothing and could not be more insignificant.
Example, this morning, I arrived at work early and the elevator was locked in the parking garage.  I had to walk all the way to the front entrance to get in.  Sometimes things like that can piss us off, but in reality we can just as easily be grateful that we have  a job, that there was a door open, that we could go get a cup of coffee instead, there are so many options.

 

Did you have a first world problem today?  How does perspective help you be more grateful?
