    lmao dw :console: I can't do basic tasks either :lol: :cry2:

    When I was trying to walk into my first chem lesson in yr 12, it took me ages to open the door (it was a push instead of pull). Everyone inside could see my pathetic attempts to open the door. :cry:

    In my defence, the door had a handle :ashamed2: like why?

    Aww thanks. Yeah I literally power walked out, could've been worse I s'pose
    I know the feeling, I'm good at academics but the real life stuff is what confuses me, they never teach us anything worthwhile in terms of life lessons at school, it's where most people stumble.

    I know what you mean :console: it must have been tempting to just leave the oyster card there, even though they're so important

    Mini story time! :ahee:

    I thought I could do the most simple of tasks, I honestly thought I was human enough to be able to swipe my OysterCard and pass through those ticket gates. Literally one arm movement.

    Obviously not :getmecoat: I became the person I hate.

    There I was, rush hour in London, innocently passing through the crowds. Swipe. Gates open. NO I dropped my Oyster, let me walk the one pace back to pick it up. DAMN YOU FINGERS PICK UP THE DAMN PIECE OF PLASTIC. ****. The gates closed...

    *beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep*

    **** my life I'm trapped inbetween the gates. Oh for ****s sake what is this moron doing? someone shouts. Please god kill me right now. Just pick it up Laurence. PICK IT UP.

    Ok, I got it! :woo: I look up...EVERYONE IS STARING AT ME. LIKE EVERYONE... God if you're up there please just let me die.

    The ticket man asks me if I'm alright...YES I'M FINE PLEASE JUST LET ME LEAVE.

    People are STILL staring as if I just murdered someone. :getmecoat:

    I've never run away so fast in my life :lol:

    So what have I learnt from this? I can't do the most basic tasks :yep: and I might as well just stay at home forever

    fml the look of the man behind me was a mix of great pity and anger :cry:
    Anyway, that was a little thing that happened to me like two hours ago...I'm a fail!
    smh man :toofunny: i died man!!! you made my day :ahee:
    steps to get pass gates
    tap oyster card on yellow reader
    the gates will open
    you place one leg before another
    you walk through the open gates
    you then proceed to your platform
