    I can fold a Bugaboo Cameleon.

    I can park a 4x4 in a very small space.

    I know all the places to park for North London consortium exams.



    Some tips for you guys:

    When ordering stuff from John Lewis, it's easier to get it delivered to your nearest Waitrose

    Always park at the Fenwicks end at Brent Cross shopping centre..

    "When ordering stuff from John Lewis, it's easier to get it delivered to your nearest Waitrose" +1, that has to be the best advice to give to someone. It is not just easier, but a free coffee can be consumed whilst waiting for the staff to obtain your order.

    To name a few:

    I can open a tin of minestrone soup in under 10 seconds.
    I can securely tie a sweater around my waist so that I will never fall off.
    I can accurately decipher a Starbucks menu.

    I know, I know. Bear Grylls has nothing on me.

    Around your waist? Surely around your shoulders is the superior way to tie your sweater?!

    What, and risk hiding the Ralph Lauren logo on my polo? I don't think so.

    I can shoot with a bow and arrow.

    And before you say that's not the point of this thread - it's definitely a survival skill and we're all ****ing middle class...

    You shouldn't be afraid of hiding the logo, never be afraid.

    I am not afraid, I am loud and proud. It is not a logo, it is a way of life.

    My survival skills:

    I can crack open a lobster, fully, in under five minutes.
    I know all the local Waitrose's and Marks and Spencer's locations, which in the case of a zombie outbreak, would be essential for my survival.
    I know how to shoot a shotgun.

    Fair play, but I do hope that you do not purchase the "large pony" selection.

    Of course not, I am not a ruffian. No ugly massive horses on my shirts.

    Not a real survival skill but I can properly tie deck shoe laces with the coil thingy and all!
    I know how to wax a barbour jacket, make kedgeree, I know how to pronounce "quinoa"... all vital skills I'm sure!
    I can ride a horse, know proper hunting etiquette, I know my tweeds and when to wear them...
    I think my skills are more suited to very much more upper middle class though!

    I realised I'd lost my tent pegs a couple of days ago. I figured that I'd make my own using wood & a knife. After several botched & one successful attempt I decided it was easier to buy some from Poundland instead!
