Having a runny nose is considered to be the biggest first world problem, new research has revealed.
The survey, compiled by animal charity SPANA, asked 2,000 adults in Britain to share their gripes and found that 30 million Britons experienced a first world problem every day.
Other problems to make it onto the list of 50 included issues with technology such as only having 3G signal rather than 4G, not having WiFi and recording clashes on the TV. Chipped nail polish and pulling a muscle from exercise also featured.
The survey also found 85 per cent of Brits liked to moan about something and around 90 per cent believed being concerned about small problems was "human nature".
But Jeremy Hulme, chief executive of SPANA, said the problems in the list were "trivial".
“It’s so easy for minor, everyday problems to seem like a big deal, and most people in Britain admit to losing perspective at times."
"But these sorts of irritations really are so trivial compared to the problems faced daily all around the world – by both people and animals."
