Where the major stresses of Life are nothing compared with the tiny stresses of the day-to-day.

I can be glad that my son has been a cad, since he now has to vacuum my car in penance. And I can be glad that we are not at home because there's no water there anyway and I have brought a trunk (a "boot" as I will learn to say in England) full of dirty laundry with me. See? Clean car AND clean laundry. Not bad.
