Anything at all that for some reason you just never learned.



I can't whistle and I can never remember how to write a check properly.

How to ride a bike(technically my parents tried to teach me, but it just never caught. I can't balance right on a bike). Oh, and I can only whistle in one direction(my lip shape seems to impede that whistle on the in-breath).

Never learned to whistle, never learned to swim.
And slightly less basic, I still don't know how to tie a tie.

Swimming for me. That's all I can think of at the moment.

Still can't manage to ride a bike... Not that I've tried in the past few years.

And I can't tie a balloon :Sigh: Think it has something to do with my fingers... At least that 'skill' isn't needed as much.

I can kind of ride a bike..Not very well though. Parents forced me to take swimming lessons when I was a kid, I hated it, so I don't really know how. Also, whistling, although I can do it subconsciously sometimes.

Social skills. I'm terrible with social/communication skills.

I also can't whistle. I'm sure there are a few other things, but can't think of them now.

a couple of months ago this list would have been so long, but i seem to know more than i thought now that i'm living on my own. i would've said i couldn't cook at all but i can definitely make basic meals now. i can't parallel park very well. i think people are supposed to be able to do that.

Table manners. I can't hold a knife and a fork in both hands simultaneously, I can only use my right. Dumb I know...should figure it out sometime. That's the biggest that comes to mind.

I feel like I don't possess most basic skills...but what comes to mind mostly is swimming. I also can't tie balloons, I'm pretty bad at tying shoes (though I can do it, the knots just don't like to stay). I'm bad at anything craft-related. I don't know how to work the washing machine. Surprisingly, I know how to ride a bike, but now am physically unable to because of my knee...boo.

My knots don't really seem to stay either and I never understood why. End up having to tie my shoes 5 or 6 times a day...
