A phrase to check someone complaining and whining about their first world problems, when in reality they have it pretty good compared to majority of the human population living in real miserable third world problems.

A phrase to check your friends when they're bitching, grumbling and fussing over something super petty, i.e. a boy, girl, ego, service, materialism, from ruining a good time in the moment with you.
A phrase to check anyone who is immodest, pretentious and wildly smug of their wealth, material, looks and status and has no comprehension that their quality of life was largely due to luck where they born and how they were raised. And some of these types of people also do nothing to help others or community and have a crazy sense of entitlement and selfishness.
