First World Bay Area Problems

Living in the Bay Area can be "tough." With the copious amounts of amazing restaurants, great bars and awesome events, it can be a headache to plan out your week. Here are some common complaints you may have if you live in the Bay Area.


1. This free networking event is lame. They only gave me 3  free drink tickets.

2. There are too many food trucks to choose from.

3. Sports tickets are too expensive because all of the Bay Area teams are doing well.

4. I can't stand my job at Google/Facebook/Yahoo/Twitter/Apple so I'm going to quit and start my own company.

5. I can't trust a restaurant or bar that has under 1,000 Yelp reviews.

6. BART's on strike again? Fine, I guess I'll have to drive my Audi to work.

7. I have to walk an additional five blocks to the nearest farmers' market because I still don't think the Whole Foods across the street is organic enough.

8. It takes too much effort to go to all of the free concerts and festivals.

9. There are too many ethnic restaurants to choose from. Japanese, Russian, Chinese, Spanish, Vietnamese, Indian, Peruvian, Korean or Burmese? Actually, let's do Ethiopian.

10. I'm trying to cut down on drinking but my company has weekly happy hour and there's always alcohol in the break room.

12. I can't decide if I want to go out in Downtown San Jose (with the college kids), Santana Row (with the hipsters) or Palo Alto (with the bros).

13. I'm too drunk to decide if I want to take a taxi, a town car or a pink mustache car home.

14. I had to stop smoking because the laws here are so strict. Now my health has never been better and I have all this disposable income.

15. I have to fly out of Oakland Airport because it was much cheaper than SFO and SJC.

16. All of my out-of-town friends think I'm a wine expert because Napa is so close.
