Change your trousers?

Measure the tire tread to see if it was imported and driven thousands of Kms from deep East Europe?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My pants sit too tight when I sit down and it hurts. And I can't find a new pair that fits. Is that enough of a first world problem?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My wife started working (after a 10 year hiatus) a few months ago. Since then I had to take over at least 50% of the house chores, including driving back home from work (about 10min) every day, heating or making lunch for our 3 kids, and then driving back to work. Plus helping with some dusting, laundry, etc. Yeah, she increased our income by 35% or so. But it's still very annoying.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My wife is expecting our first born and since then I have to pick up the "slack" . Dirty dishes and laundry, cooking dinner and sometimes, I even have to put in the minutes for a foot massage! The humanity!
