I can't for the life of me carry a handbag on my shoulder. It might just be the way I'm built but the bag will slip off within seconds, unless I put my shoulder up near my ear! Everyone else I see seems to find this easy, but I can't do it!

What can't you do, that everyone else seems to do with ease? And does anyone else find carrying a handbag on their shoulder impossible?!

OP I have to put my hand on my bag and put weight on it in order for it to stay I think I have rounder shoulders than is norm.

I can't whistle. I used to be able but one day I went to and now I can't. I don't know how my body can forget how to whistle but it has.

Self assembly.  Anything.  Even the simplest piece of furniture.

For those that cant roll your tongue, it's genetic.  So don't waste too many hours in front on the mirror trying!

I taught myself to raise one eyebrow when I was 16, it took months of practicing in front of a mirror, I was trying to look awesome like Kiefer Sutherland did when he did it.  Now it is an involuntary thing, after 22 years of it and my eyebrows never look even when I wax or pluck due to the strong eyebrow muscle in my left one.  Weird stuff but true

Carry my baby on my left hip.  I know most people do, to free up their right hand, but I'm totally incapable.
Say no to fabulous projects that I don't have time for.

This question made me laugh! Thanks. I can't whistle, carry a bag on one shoulder, do small talk, a cartwheel, or open my eyes under water. original.gif

I can't do this either, but I have a spinal curve so it makes sense. I also can only carry things (including DS) on my left side even though I am right handed.

Don't drive either. I have tried with really horrible consequences but I just don't get it, and now I don't trust my reflexes/co-ordination to even try.

Keep mascara or foundation on

Drive Bells Line of Road in sydney comfortably at the speed limit when it's wet. Went to a friends place in Lithgow yesterday and had to pull over many many times to let people pass me on the way home lol

I can't run.  It just ends up being an over-exerted, uncoordinated awkward scene.  Just can't do it sad.gif

I can swim kms without puffing though - hopefully that makes up for it!

I can't use a phone in my right ear, only my left.  Weird thing is that I only have 5% hearing in my left ear so I can't really hear that well and spend half of my time yelling for people to speak up, but if I put the phone to my right ear it sounds hollow and odd and I cannot understand things.  My ears are not ambidextrous

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
