If you wore born and grew up in the U.S., Canada, Australia or any other country considered "developed," there are probably a lot of things you take for granted on a daily basis. Things like clean drinking water, big grocery stores, and even mirrors. But for people who grew up in developing countries and then left, many aspects of life in the developed world might come as a shock.

Someone asked this question on Reddit: "People who grew up in third-world countries, what was the biggest shock for you when moving into a developed country?"

These 35 responses offer fascinating insight into the things many of us don't realize are "first-world" luxuries:

1.) From 0m3gaMan5513:

2.) From paladin400:
