This is a question First World Problems

Onemunki says: We live in a world of genuine tragedy, starvation and terror. So, after hearing stories of cruise line passengers complaining at the air conditioning breaking down, what stories of sheer single-minded self-pity get your goat?

overheard at the airport
kid 1: 'no, mum, we can't sit here, we've got to sit over there, these seats are for burger king'

kid 2: 'But what if they ask us to move?'

mum: (spittle flying, red in the face) WE ARE SITTING HERE BECAUSE *pause for breath, volume increase of about 40%, face set to 'withering glare* THERE ARE NO CLEAN TABLES TO EAT AT OVER THERE!'

kid 1: 'but it's only a couple of empty cups'

mum: (now upright and shaking with rage) 'I REFUSE TO SIT IN FILTH!! I DON't SEE WHY *I* SHOULD GET SOME FILTHY DISEASE BEACUSE *THESE PEOPLE* CAN'T CLEAN UP AFTER THEMSELVES! IT's OUTRAGEOUS!! i'm going to write a letter of complaint!!(finger jabbing on table) YOU SEE IF I DON'T!! *glowers at oblivious burger staff*

the kid was not exaggerating. literally, two empty cups on an otherwise clean bench.. Amazing. walk five mins from the airport, there's peasant women that look like sunburnt potatoes with limbs, struggling along the roadside with a bunch of sticks on their back as big as they are, and you're apoplectic with rage over an empty drinks cup?

Are you sure, because this:
"walk five mins from the airport, there's peasant women that look like sunburnt potatoes with limbs, struggling along the roadside "

sounds a lot like Gatwick...

your child is a more reasonable and considerate human being than you are it's perhaps time to step back and reexamine your life.
