I've just bought a brand new car and it doesn't smell new. Any suggestions?
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.

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!

I can barely hear the car radio over the wind noise from my 4 England flags.

Didn't like that the Dutch won. What a massacre.

This is a problem thread - your love of football shouldn't be a problem for you right now, whereas my disdain for it certainly is!

Rubbish, people who hate football absolutely delight in telling everyone they hate football during the world cup
