I have "cup of cold water" problems

It's become an accepted meme to talk about one's difficulties as "first world" problems, to emphasize that although they're personally significant they're not on the scale of death or destitution a person without our level of resources might experience.

Well. You know what happens if you dump a cup of cold water on a cat? It's not going to kill the cat; it's not even going to injure the cat. But man, that's going to be a miserable, hissy, spitty animal.

I have cup-of-cold-water problems, and if I've hissed or yowled at you lately, I'm sorry.
