    I've never learned how to ride a bike, which a lot of my friends take the mickey out of me for.
    I never learnt either. I remember trying to ride one when I was a kid but I could never do it without stabilisers. In the end I just gave up and haven't ridden a bike since.

    Socialising/small talk :pierre:
    I'm a bit like that. I can get talking once there is something specific to talk about, but I'm awful at small talk. I'm just like "erm.......... so..... do you like bread?".


    I can't swim without a float. I remember going into my first swimming lesson of secondary school PE and after the warm-up the class had to go to the bottom end of the pool. The teacher then said we would all have to swim lengths of the pool. I panicked and had to explain that I couldn't swim. I ended up having to just practice all the time in a sectioned off bit of the pool on my own while everyone else did lengths.

    I didn't learn till I was 16. My parents seemed to think that it wasn't an important life skill lol 😕

    I find it really hard to use keys to unlock doors - I almost always have to ask someone else to do it for me

    Opening plastic bags at the supermarket. I get flustered every time.
    I'm exactly the same. And then there's the pressure of opening the bag and packing whilst trying not to hold up the queue! I actually look for tills where the cashier has already separated and opened the bags

    For some reason I still find it a little bit difficult to cross the road when there's lots of traffic about. I'm always hesitant about whether or not to cross

    I'm also quite bad on the phone. I really don't like having to make phone calls.
    That's strange. I...just walk right into traffic. Get honked mostly but recently got backed into by a big jeep. I stumbled over and the impact made my keys fly out my hand. And I just...got back up and walked away. :indiff: Still uhlive! :ahee:

    Anyway:

    I find it hard to get a job. :nothing:
