Having a shit time with a major project at home. Something that should have taken 3 weeks is into its 9th week. I've had countless people traipsing through my house from 8am most days so the morning routine has had to be super rushed, have had to put off other trades, things have gone wrong due to shoddy workmanship and I am at the end of my tether.

Posted in the dreaded FB today to get a post from a friend of a friend saying 'I would literally die for a problem like this (sad face).

I'm a bit cross. I have a great life now but have been abused, lost a parent at a young age, shitty divorce, shittier custody battle and numerous health issues so I know this isn't huge in the grand scheme of things but FGS can't we all have a moan about first world problems without someone coming back at you with that sort of thing.

I just wanted a bloody moan!

I see where your coming from but life is all about experiences and perceptions and as far as your friend is concerned she wouldn't mind having your problem.

If you wanted sympathy then maybe you'd be better off avoiding the dreaded FB

Sounds like your friend needs a reality check!!

Although I admit to feeling as she did when a friend posted a whinge about her jeans not fitting her and feeling fat (she is a size 8 max) last week. I had a family member and close friend drop dead with no warning and my best friends baby was diagnosed with cancer. Shit week to be fair but I am not sure I would have been brave enough to post in the manner your friend did!

Could she be hunting she needs some advice/support? Clutches at straws

Moan away.
We all know there is someone, who has it worse. Doesn't make our troubles feel less important to us.

YANBU. I would post back....'You're literally a twat.'

YWNBU, I hate it when people think that only their distress is worthy. It's not a competition, there are many things in life that are stressful, and people who pull rank and say theirs is worse are shit friends.

I don't really know her to be truthful, she's a friend if s friend and from her I understand has had a hard time lately but other than to say Hi, I don't think I've ever spoken to her. No idea why she wanted to be my friend to be honest!

If I knocked on her door to offer support she'd probably wonder why the hell I was there.

Thanks for not making me feel unreasonable though. I was starting to think that I'd never be able to sit in my gilded tower and whine wink.
