Common problems faced by people in ‘first world’ countries [Comic]


I bet many people around the world wish they had such “problems” to deal with, amirite? (For those of you that missed it, the comic is obviously satire.)

    The last one I used to do at Blockbusters. At least at Blockbusters, they had cute clerks.

    Yes, I just remember the old party lines, though back in those days we had ‘telephone rules’ and I was not allowed to use the phone. Thanks for reminding me; I’ll have to bring those up when my kids whine about the phone torture I subject them to. How far we’ve come in so short a time.

    Are you old enough to remember party lines? Back in my junior high days one of my friends was on a party line, shared with an old lady who would always pick up and tell us to get off the phone because she was expecting an important call. Being the snotty little brats that we were, we’d find things to talk about to ensure an extra long chat!

    Yeah, I long for the good ol’ days when the phrase “something just ate my foot” only attained minor sympathies from your neighbors.

    Listening to my children, it will only get more ridiculous. They make me laugh at the ‘common problems’ they face daily. I refuse to get them a phone until they reach driving age, and I’m roundly chastised for it on a daily basis. For their generation it has somehow become a ‘necessity’. I remind them when I grew up, the only phone we had was screwed to the wall with a 15 foot coiled wire attached to the handset, and it was shared with 8 other siblings and two parents.

    Satire? Yes, but it illustrates very nicely just how petty some of our problems can be.
