So, what is a first a world problem?

A first world problem is a problem that’s most commonly experienced by people from wealthy nations (or at least well-to-do cliques), which would probably be considered insignificant or petty by people from poor nations (or at least struggling cliques). In a nutshell, a first world problem is a most often a problem of minor or inconsequential inconvenience.
