Mo' money, mo' problems, right? Never mind starvation and religious persecution. Homes destroyed by conflict or natural disaster. A paucity of healthcare, education, clean water. We're not talking problems of the have-nots here, we're talking problems of the...well...the almost-haves. And on that note, we're not really talking problems either, we're talking...almost-problems of the almost-haves. Or, as author Benjamin Lee puts it in the book compilation of his Twitter account: Middle Class Problems: Problems but Not Real Actual Problems, Just Middle Class Ones.

Lee began his @MiddleClassProb Twitter account in 2010, and last year released a Middle Class Problems book as a way to consolidate the most horrifying examples of bourgeois hardship. Lost iPhones. Downloading the wrong book to the wrong Kindle. Feeling like you've forgotten how to ski. Overcooking the quinoa. Going to a raw bar just to have their hamma-hamma oysters and being told they're out of hamma-hamma oysters. And the worst, the absolute worst: getting to a 6:00 a.m. spin class 15 minutes early and still not being able to secure a bike in front of the fan. Fuck. That.

If you know someone who could use a little perspective in life, Middle Class Problems could give it to them.

Or it could just give them a couple hundred pages of people to commiserate with, and get them even more worked up about having pulled an @hulricat, accidentally ordering 3 bags of ground organic fair-trade coffee instead of whole bean too!
