GRP\ moment

GRP is short for the much-needed phrase, Get a real problem.
Useful when addressing or describing people or situations in which insignificant issues are being blown out of proportion. For example, when my fourth and fifth grade students complain about other students budging (Hey, is that an official word?) them in line, I tell them that it sounds like a GRP moment, because we are all going to the same place no matter where we are in the line.

After the school principal spent twenty minutes describing the problems with the pop machines in the staff lounge, several teachers suggested she might be having a GRP moment.
