The controls on the centre console of an Aston Martin feel a bit cheap.

Bit soon guys? Still grieving :S
Not at all. Can you really imagine TP getting upset at jokes about his death, even before he died? No, he'd have loved it.

On a recent trip to London my wife and I ate out in Yo Sushi, Nandos and Pizza Express and in all three establishments we were informally addressed as 'Guys'

A pixel on my laptop screen died yesterday, I've now only got 2,303,999 left.
I hope it wasn't your favourite pixel.

The tea bag has no tea in it, not a single tea leaf to be seen.

Even more amazing is that OH was actually making the tea and he didn't even notice until he poured the boiling water onto it and the water didn't change colour.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Switched contracts from Swisscom to Orange. Got temporary number. Contract paper stipulated that the new number should have been activated last week. Despite assurance, old number still in use. But that's nothing compare to fact that I tried to use their online contact form that seems to be very professional and efficient.

My only disappointment that they had called me back only after about 10min instead of guaranteed "within 5min ..."

They are aluminium - but appear to have them be spray painted to look like cheap plastic.

The climate seat controller is where the sat-nav controller should be and the sat-nav controller is only 4-way - and with no extended logic.

I'd still have one if someone gave it to me

The gym car park was completely packed this evening so I had to park like half a mile away, and now I'm sneezing because I had to walk back in the cold after my shower
