I have to say that one thing I am good at its putting a bra on properly, unless the pt has left me too sore. In fact I can not do it the other way, it always feels twisty on me for the whole day if I do it that way.

I have to agree with those who put rad on properly. I only started a few years ago but I won't do it any other way now. Especially as I now invest in intimo bras and they start at $70each and go up from there. Putting them on properly prolongs the life of the bra.
And, before I get into my list of adult failures I also just want to quickly point out that those of you who use fabric softeners, I recently was directed to an article that pointed out all the nasties in them. So, if you have sensitive skin, are prone to acne, suffer from headaches or migraines then I would definitely stay away from them. I don't know a our anyone else but whenever I turn into the laundry aisle in Woolies and the smell of all those products hits me it is an instant headache until I get far enough away from them.
Ok so my adult failures. I can't or don't:
Dust. Like, once or twice a year when it gets so thick that the kids are drawing in it. It comes from the ducted heating because the real estate won't let us put a filter on there because quote "renters don't clean them and they become a fire hazard".
Separate laundry. Whatever I pick up from the laundry floor first gets thrown in. Whites, darks, brights, sheets, towels, whatever.
I only run the dishwasher once a day. If I am feeling particularly motivated I will do a hand wash as well. But like- twice a week. So my bench always has dirty dishes on it.
I don't change sheets often enough. I don't make beds every morning.
I can't sew. Not for lack of trying. I don't have the patience and so my motto of near enough is good enough just falls flat in that dept.
garden. And we're moving onto 2 acres that needs garden love. God help me.
I just dot adult in general. I get along with kids much better. Give me a choice of cleaning my hideous bathroom or playing with the kids I will play. Give me a choice of going out and meeting new adults (intimidating!) or hanging with the kids I will hang.
I have so much more but dd has woken up screaming. No good at that, either.

Cooking. I have no idea how we survive to be honest.
Remembering important things.

I'm hopeless at taking anything back for a refund or exchange to the shops if it's faulty or the like, I feel like they won't believe me or think I'm pulling a dodgy, so I sooner keep the item here, so stupid! Weird thing is, my Mum is a master at that sort of thing, so I don't know why I struggle with it.
Cannot fold fitted sheets for the life of me, flats yes, but fitted no.
Measuring, don't ask me to grab a tape measure and measure something as I am bound to mess it up.

Failing as an adult: Things I never learnt how to do.
Put on make up, do hair properly, or how to dress

It's the reason you won't find me at a garage sale, I feel bad when the sellers are sitting there looking at me (especially if I'm the only one there) and there's nothing I want/need to buy, eeeep, I feel so ridiculously uncomfortable and awkward and bad about not buying anything, so now I just avoid them.

Is it the same in a rice cooker? And is it the same for white/jasmine/basmati? And is it the same if you have washed the rice and it is wet? Gosh I've tried the rice/water ratio so many times and it's never the same twice!
