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).

lasagna_for_life

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.

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.

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.

I once knew a guy that could ride a bike with no handlebars.

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.

MyAltRedditAccount1

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.

When you go on a job interview, the last thing you probably never think about is asking a question.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?

As much as we'd like to assume spirits, ghosts, and paranormal happenings are relegated to movies and books, plenty of real-life stories abound.
