RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
They keep trying to give me actual work to do. Cant I just keep doing this 2-3 hours of work over the span of an 8 hour shift? But noooo... And then my TTA time eats into my GTA:V time.

You've got internet and enough spare time to be hanging out in forums.
If it quacks ?

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
My iPhone decided to start muse ring (muse ring really autocorrect that is the best you could do??) ***murdering*** chargers. After a couple of weeks of using the same charger it will not charge my phone anymore. It will still charge other people's phones but just not mine. At first I would just trade my charger to a friend who also has an iPhone, now I am running out of friends who have iPhones who don't already have a charger that my phone already murdered. I could get a new phone but I have like 1700+ pictures and videos in this phone and I am too lazy to transfer them. Ugh. :'( poor me it is so hard to be American.

I have laughed, in bitterness and agony of heart, at the contrast between what I seem and what I am!

This sends me into a rage on an almost daily basis.

Now mine: I have slow internet, so when I want to download new podcasts, I like to set them to download while I sleep. I often forget to set them to download before bed. It ruins my day to wake up without new podcasts to listen to while I work.

What's the standard speed in US/Canada if that's where you are from?

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
Holy crap, this looks bad... Ping 58ms, download .87 Mbps, upload .46 Mbps. No idea what any of this means, but it was really low on the gauge. In all fairness, I only pay $40 a month compared to over $100 that I've heard from others, and for the most part I'm happy with the speed, never waiting long for much, I've had slower. And never an interruption to service (except for power outages).

Thanks!!

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
Canadian internet is quite a ripoff. Its more expensive, and you get less of everything. My Bell DSL download is about 16mb/s while upload is a ridiculous 0.7 mb/s. About 6 months ago I went unlimited, before that I had a 50gb(?) cap. Ping is okay, but it depends on location being pinged...

Oh, and I guess the ISOhunt shutdown is another of my 1st world problems.
