Hashtag. Hashtag. Hashtag…
Yeah, you’re over it and so am I. People hate seeing rants about serious issues that they hear about every damn day on Tumblr anyway…. But let’s all have a laugh about how much crap we have in abundance that everyone else doesn’t. #blessed #pretendthisisntasannoyingasKimKardashian? Uhm….sure. Here are some of my personal favorites.
“Oh my god, they put gouda instead of cottage on my salad. That’s too many calories! #firstworldfoodprobz”
– Hey ma’am. How about you donate the $12 you spent on the salad you’re about to dump to a charity…?
“I have no place to put my leftovers from dinner because I have too much food in my fridge. #firstworldfoodprobz”
– Uhm, could you maybe not…?
“I’m hungry… but not for any of the food in my house.”
– You know, that is such an inconvenience. Wouldn’t it just be better to be hungry……..with no food in your house? hhmmm.
“I only eat Kobe Lobster… It’s Kobe beef fed Lobster”
“It’s 3am and I can’t order food from anywhere. Ugh this town is literally killing me.”
“I had to pour water out a jug like a peasant. My automatic water dispenser broke.”
So, my little first world counter-parts, how about you stop crying about all the things wrong with your food situation and take a minute to think that you HAVE food, when many don’t… Or, I mean, you can crack jokes about how there’s nothing you can do for poor kids in Africa I mean it’s not like you can actually send them the leftovers from brunch last weekend, amiright? #hahahabecausepovertyisnotmyfault.
