I recently read a coworker’s great article on the popular and poingant hashtag #firstworldproblems. I also remember heartily agreeing with a review of Eat, Pray, Love that expressed the sentiment that it embodied the phrase.
This particular phrase comes up in reference to the recent Netflix price hike fairly often. Many Netflix devotees (myself being a member since it was an underground band you’ve probably never heard of) originally couldn’t believe they were getting so much for so little. Now with a price hike for the average customer of six bucks, it’s an outrage to pay so much for so little. How quickly things change for us privileged. Not me though, I’m poor. I doubt I’ll miss the DVDs when I switch to the streaming-only option.
But the whole point of this rambling is to show you this video profiling the devastation it has caused and how “this is literally the worst thing that ever happened… to white people.” Enjoy!
