Things You Can't Do That Just About Everyone Else Can

    I was asked in another thread why I ate my Cheetos with a spoon instead of using chopsticks like everyone else. The truth of the matter is I never have learned to use chopsticks. If I don't ask for a fork in an Asian restaurant my prawn is going to end up in the lap of some guy two tables over.
    I also can't whistle. Fortunately I'm in a profession where it's acceptable to wear a whistle around your neck.
    Maybe somewhat related, I can't blow a bubble with bubblegum. And I can't tell a joke to save my life.
    What can't you do that seemingly everybody else does perfectly well?

    "Things You Can't Do That Just About Everyone Else Can"

    That would take me at least an hour and require ten posts and everyone would say TL;DR. icon_redface.gif

    I can't hit anything (in baseball) that isn't a high pop-up.......the kind anybody can (and does) catch.

    I can't get into basketball at all, even though a couple of coaches used to try to get me to come out for the team (because I was tall). I wouldn't have been any good, I'm sure of it.

    Oh, I don't even want to get started about the things I can't do sportswise. If I agree to play tennis with friends a lot of them grow tired of how lopsided the match is and amuse themselves by trying to hit me in the head with the ball.

    I can't dance. I'm probably the only black person who can't. I can't whistle. I can't swim. I can't drive. I can't top. I can't walk straight because my feet go out like a ducks. I can't snap my fingers. I can't play any sport. I can't fix a car. I can't speak any language besides English.

    I can't climb ropes. Nobody ever showed me as a kid how to do it and when we did it in gym-class all I could do is hang there like a bag of potatoes.

    Ditto with whistling with 2, 4 or no fingers. Pathetic!

    Can't whistle or snap my fingers. Someone else said they can't tell a joke, I thought I was the only one. Either it's bad timing, or cracking up before or during the punch line that always ruins it. And as a kid, I wanted to be a comedian, I'd have broken the world record as having the most fruit thrown at me.

    Throw like a girl

    Punch like a girl

    Get flustered during debates

    Always look terrible in pictures, except Glamour Shots, they're miracle workers!

    Can't swim

    I am a decent dancer, though, but only because I took lessons.

    "You know how to whistle, don't you Steve? You just put your lips together and blow."

    I cannot hold a pen or eating utensil like a normal person. People comment on it when they notice.

    Sit-ups. I cannot even do one, even though I have visible abs. My back arches slightly more than a normal persons', so when I try to do a sit-up my tailbone essentially jabs straight down into the ground and causes me quite a bit of pain.

    ...huh, that sounds an awful lot like a humblebrag. Sorry icon_cry.gif

    -Ride anything with wheels that isn't a car (bike, skateboard, skates). I immediately tip over.

    -Play any sort of sport or anything that vaguely resembles any sort of sport.

    Whistle.
    Cartwheel.
    Tie a proper knot. I can do it in a multitude of ways, but the traditional escapes me all the time.
    Rollerskate, Skateboard... Ice Skate.
    Use chopsticks.
    Cry. It's so rare when it happens that I can count how many times I have. Not because it just can't happen, it's because my tear ducts are so small.


    And that's about it that I can think of.

    Eat Cheetos with anything other than my fingers. Seriously, who doesn't eat Cheetos with their fingers? That's the point. When did people with no qualms about sticking their fingers up a guy's ass get all pissy with flatware and chopsticks?

    Lets see:
    I can't whistle very well.
    I can't sing.
    Can't dance
    Or seem to know how to respond to certain comments.
    I have a hard time reading in between the lines.

    ... And many more.

    I can't do much like a normal person. icon_neutral.gif
