WIth a workday that typically starts when the sun goes down and features loud music playing and people dancing, you wouldn’t think disc jockeys would have much to complain about.

Apparently, they do, and some of the world’s most recognizable DJs have been doing so on Twitter.

Whether its a tight wristband or a bad latte, DJs are just like the rest of us. One new Twitter account that is driving this point home is @DJsComplaining, which retweets funny messages from spin masters around the world.

In 15 days, the profile has collected more than 27,000 followers and 32 tweets. Here are some of the best first world problems from superstar DJs:
