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.

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.

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.

People Divulge The Scariest Thing That's Ever Happened To Them

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

Women Share The Biggest Downsides To Having Breasts

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
