+ 1 to dieting, throwing and catching and tennis. I was having lessons and the instructor had to stop and throw a beanbag to me to catch to check my co-ordination was as crap as he thought it was. It was, he told me to find another sport. I'm also crap at watching films, I will nearly always fall asleep before the end, even at the cinema. Mr F doesn't take me to the cinema any more.

I can't see much with my glasses off, as my prescription is about 10.5 in one and 12 in the other.

Are you talking about benefit frausters RicF?

No I'm talking about people who have zero practical skills, no physical ability, appear to have limited knowledge of just anything you can think of but for some inexplicable reason only seem able to function effectively in an employment/earning capacity. 

Another way of putting it is 'How can someone be good at their job when totally shit at everything else?'

Maybe that's why they're crap at everything else - they've spent years focusing on whatever specialised stuff they need to know for their high paying job!

I'm rubbish at chess. Understand the moves etc and have played it loads and really enjoy it, but everyone always beats me.

You could say that about certain athletes, artists, musicians too ... they can be amazing at kicking a ball/playing guitar but would be fired on their first day if they were working in 'normal' jobs - they just have an obvious talent instead of a talent for administration or whatever.

Hello Corrie!

I'm manning the enquiries desk at Liverpool marathon if you're lurking?

That is, if your ASBO allows you back into town?

Mental arithmetic. I'd love a game o darts but not being able to subtract numbers,- there's no way

I can't say no, sometimes I put myself in bad situations because I can't tell someone to stop whatever they are doing because I don;t want to upset them or cause trouble.. 

The other day I was shopping with my older sister and my neice and was feeling quite ill, despite me telling her she ontinued shopping, (as all women do) and I just couldn;t bring myself to telling her I really had to leave. She would say "Is it ok if I go to xxxxx?" and I would be like, "yeah ok, but I don't feel great". 

Maybe it's me being soft or she was just inconsiderate, but I do it all the itme lol

Pretty crap at running.

Pretty crap at concentrating on one thing and not letting my mind wander.

Pretty crap at saving money.... I think I should stop
