First World Probs

Are you familiar with first world problems? It's those little things in life that are so irritating, but it's things that are actually just luxuries in first world countries. For example, the dryer door at my boyfriend's house will NOT stay open, so every time I scoop a handful of laundry out of the washer, I have to kick open the dryer door with my knee. EVERY TIME. First world prob. Or the fact that my hand is too small to push both the Alt and L key on the keyboard to lock my computer at work before stepping out...I have to use two hands. UGH! TWO HANDS?! So annoying. Or how about the fact that its impossible to rinse a spoon in the kitchen sink without water spraying everywhere because of the shape of the spoon? Anybody?? 

Let's talk the latest first world problem seriously affecting my life these days. The silverware drawer. Why is it that no matter what I do, the silverware holder shifts toward the back of the drawer?!

Exhibit A:

I'm sure this happens to everyone.....RIGHT?!?!? What are we supposed to do? I mean, it probably happens so much to you that you don't even realize it. We are forever pulling the holder back to the front of the drawer. Every time I think "Maybe if I start closing the drawer slower" proceeded by a gentle shove to shut the drawer. Then before I know it, I'm opening it one day and it needs to be pulled to the front again. I could just leave it where it is -- not let it win -- but then i have to open the drawer completely just to get something out. And if I ignore it, I'll probably open the drawer one day and the silverware will be so far back in the drawer that I won't even be able to see it.
 It's ridiculously irritating. Is my holder not heavy enough? Should I forgo said holder altogether? Should I screw it to the bottom of the drawer?! Omg. FWP.
