When you grow up in a country that's as relatively privileged as the United States, it's easy to take things for granted. Of course no country is perfect, but some are a lot easier to inhabit than others.

A recent Reddit thread asked, "People who have left third-world countries for first-world countries, what surprised you the most about life in first-world countries?" The answers prove it's not so bad here.

1. We don't appreciate toilet paper enough.

There's toilet paper in most public bathrooms. My mom still carries toilet paper in her purse when she comes to visit me and we go out - milanesaconpapas

2. Kind of a weird flex, if you think about it.

"you have so much clean water that you even s*** in it" - ShreadHeadED

3. Who doesn't love a good wintertime banana?

Im 1st gen, but this is what my mom told me:

"You can get any produce you want here. You can eat summer fruit in the winter time. There was a snowstorm going on outside, but the grocery store still had strawberries and grapes"
