    Default *Spin off* Why is it so damn hard to....

    The thread about portacots got me thinking... yes, they are impossible to fold up and yes, chupachups are so tedious to unwrap! Surely these things should be easier, why must they be so tricky? Another one I heard recently was unwrapping a candy cane! Another ridiculously hard task that should be easy.
    Sometimes it takes me ages to fully peel a boiled egg as well, other times it just comes away smoothly.

    What in life do you find so annoying hard/tedious? Something that *seems* easy but in reality is not?

    I can't park straight- I always have to back up and straighten up; everyone else just seems to do it in one motion, lol..

    I really don't understand why scissors come in packets you need scissors to open.

    I also don't understand why salad dressing bottles are so free-flowing. I can't be the only one who has to pour it in the lid first and then onto the salad for fear of drowning it in a dressing soup.

    How about finding the tab/start of the sticky tape? I'll sit there for 5 minutes spinning it and peeling away at the part I think is it before throwing it across the room

    Threading a needle.

    Using those self serve things at coles which always need to be swiped by the assistant.

    YES! So frustrating. On that note....I cant seem to pour balsamic vinegar out 'right' ....its always mostly oil and only a smidge of vinegar comes out. I shake and shake and then pour and....oil

    Threading a needle is just crap. I can't do it without that little metal thingy (no idea what it's called) you get in sewing kits.
