It is my firm belief that we all progress at different points in life. Some learn to drive when they're 30, some graduate college at 16. Whatever, right? There are circumstances though, where it goes beyond "staying on your path", and becomes, well.....WTF.

u/noobpirate asked: What is one simple thing that you still can't do?


O-P-Q......R????

I can't instantly recall alphabetical order. I obviously know it, but even in my 30's I sometimes have to run through it in my head to make sure Q comes before R (for example).

It's a subtle difference.

Skip.

I remember when I started school, we had to skip around the yard, but I was always told off because I was 'galloping' :(

Anyone can whistle (jk lol)

Whistle with my fingers in my mouth.

ChocTopIceBlock

Can't whistle in general.

That wouldn't solve the initial problem, nope.

Food is important, yes.

Stop thinking about food. Apparently there are people out there for routinely forget to eat a meal, which is as mystifying a concept to me as walking on water.

Eating is like my favorite thing to do all day. I daydream about dinner at work. When we go out I mentally tally the places we could eat at (and even google them beforehand if I know we're going) to make sure I don't have any regrets about the place I picked.

I too cannot imagine forgetting. I'd have to be unconscious.

Wait....who are you?

Remember someone's name immediately after they introduce themselves.

TreeDoughnut

Me: "I'm so sorry. What was your name again?"

Forgets again two minutes later

There should probably be a better solution than that.

Tie my shoes the grown up way. Bunny ears all day.

Cariboucarrot

My ex always used to put on his already-tied shoes with a shoe horn instead of untying them. I thought he was lazy. Turns out he was 27 and couldn't tie laces. I think his mom tied them when he got new shoes and just hoped to hell they wouldn't come undone.

ReallyVeryAverage

That's the easy way out.

Read my watch. I technically can do it but it takes me too long so I always look at my phone instead.

Soancaholz

LMAO same, my cousin got me a fancy watch which I bring to parties or other fancy stuff and every half an hour i'll check it in case someone asks me what hour is it.

noobpirate

Don't go to Amsterdam.

Ride a bike.

RRRRRRRR

I can't trill my r's.

Wolfbrother2

My HS Spanish teacher taught us to roll our Rs by saying 'watermelon' ten times fast then trying.

It worked for me at least.

dylanus93

Relatable.

Make friends.

This. I feel like I get along with people that I meet spontaneously (schoolmates, roommates, co-workers, etc.) really well and hang out with them often. But once we part ways (for example when we graduated high school) I never keep in touch. I don't know why, I just don't feel the need to.

As if being a mom isn't hard enough, why does society want to heap on more stress. Women who can breastfeed need to be able to breastfeed. They need to do it whenever and wherever.

This has been a contentious, dramatic issue for generations. Some people just can't handle a boob out in public. A boob that is nourishing a child, I might add. When you're hungry, you don't want to wait, so why should a mom, make her baby wait until a more "appropriate" time?

God grow up.

Redditor u/Brace4Landing wanted to chat about what women have to do what they do, by asking:

What are your thoughts about women breastfeeding openly in restaurants?

Our society has a lot of strange ideas about masculinity. In fact, we have such a string of contradicting and misleading pieces of information on how a man "should" act that it has created a very emotionally stunted pool of men in the United States.

And it's usually traits that differ from this path of "most masculine" that, ironically, make us appealing to potential mates. When people look for a partner, they usually look for some preliminary signs of who that person is, and these are some of the traits that most stuck out upon first impression.

Have you ever found yourself handing over some hard-earned money while wondering "why am I even paying for this?"

There are some things that absolutely should be "free" - or at least not an extra fee on top of some already-paid money. So let's talk about them.

Generations are sometimes a little confusing. What makes up a generation? Is it their ages or year they were born? Is it what was happening politically during the formative years? Is it the economic landscape that either afforded or denied certain life expectations? Maybe it's the technology that they had access to.

According to the Pew Research Center, it's all of these things and more. All of these factors can influence a generations understanding of the world and ultimately their thoughts as the move through it.

Depending on what generation you're from, you might have seen the drastic shift from records to CDs to Spotify, from payphones and landlines to cellphones.

Marked by technology and pop culture references, the older generations might actually look to Gen Z, the iGen, with pitty for never truly understanding the struggle of walking to school up hill both ways.

What are the struggles of the past that young people today really won't understand unless they were there to experience it? We went to Ask Reddit to find out.
