    Oh and for all the people with funky smelling linen - the linen can be bone dry when you put it in, but if there's the slightest hint of moisture or mildew in the cupboard, it will eventually get into everything. The moisture absorbing pellet/powder things help a little, as does emptying the cupboard and leaving it open to air out for a while. But ultimately damp leads to mould, any kind of organic fibre or wood is susceptible, and the only guaranteed solution is to replace the entire cupboard, all of your furniture, move out of the house, and burn it down on your way out.

    Seriously, I freakin hate damp.

    I can't wear high heels. I can't walk in them properly, and even a low heel just hurts. No heels for me.

    Actually I can't even look like an adult. I still dress young I guess...chuck taylors skinny jeans and shirts are my staples for winter...compared to real adults in their tights, big flowing tops, fancy boots, loopy earrings and matching accessories. They're not even dressed particularly fancy...they're just dressed like adults and I just feel so uncomfortable if I try it so I stick with the same wardrobe I had in my teenage years!

    I wear chuck taylors, baggy jeans and nerd comic shirts to work even when i am running a board meeting. Dressing like an adult is overrated

    Iron.

    Sew (can't even thread the needle).

    Knit / crochet.

    Drive.

    Anything to do with makeup, jewellery, accessories, fashion, hair styling.

    Anything financial.

    Anything technical.

    Anything requiring any kind of handyperson.

    Anything more than basic computer skills.

    Communicate with others (Asperger's Syndrome makes this especially interesting).

    Make and keep friends (see previous item).

    Reading comprehension (I can read the words really well, but when it comes to telling you what those words actually mean in the context they're written in, I just simply can't do it).

    I cant
    Iron
    Keep a tidy house
    Dust
    Put my bra on properly
    My house is a miss match of stuff that doesn't match
    I can't style my hair or put on makeup
    My cooking is awful.
    I'm only on my learners at 32 and I suck at driving.
    I've got no patience
    And lastly I still feel like a kid sometimes who is faking at being an adult.

    This thread makes me feel good about my adulting skills.

    I can't get jam to set...i try and try but keep failing.
    I can't make bread that is not a brick.
    I can't get fondant to work. It melts in my hands but i am ok because it tastes yuck
    I can't enjoy wine. It is ick.
    I can't enjoy anything that gives me debt....eg a holiday if it is expensive, hair cuts ect.
    I can't justify the cost of something for its apperance when i can get a cheaper item second hand for a fraction of the cost that is more durable and functional.
    I keep forgetting to clean the car

    My car is a bomb site, most of the time! I haven't tried jam but I can't make Jelly! Yes, even the standard box of jelly crystals just won't set for me. Jelly is DH's job now.
