This is meant to be fluffy.

Mine (amongst lots) is if a sentence says

The book is not red

I spend ages working out not means it isn't (that is probably a bad example) or working out double negatives

I also can't whistle or click my fingers

(I may have done this one in the past)

I can't do makeup well

To be fair, I don't want to, but also, I just can't

Can't get into reality tv like bride and prejudice or love island and I can't give any respect to those who do those shows. If they were my family, I'd be super embarrassed!

I can't whistle either or blow my nose.

I can't fake excitement. I'm an open book, if i don't like something it shows on my face.
I often try to seem excited about something (usually involving MIL lol) but i know my voice and facial expressions are off.

Read maps unless it is facing the direction I am travelling

the left side of my hair, no probs with the right side but I can never replicate it on the left like curls and braids etc

I can't roll my r's either.
I can't ride a bike very well due to my crap balance and borderline inability to block out busy backgrounds. Too much going on in different directions with loud background noise that changes overwhelms me.  
Also, I struggle to not stick my foot in it in social situations. I think my social anxiety is a chicken or the egg kinda scenario.

What is a Melway?

I can’t do Twitter, I don’t get it. I feel ok about that though, I was reading an article and apparently Twitter is for old people nowadays :rofl:

Melways is the main brand of street directory for Melbourne. It’s so ubiquitous that “Melways” has become the default word for street directory.

I have very thick, curly, coarse hair.

My daughter's hair is dead straight and silky.

I absolutely suck at doing my kid's hair. It always looks wrong.

Haven't heard of a melways in years lol.

I also can’t whistle, drive a manual, reverse park, follow directions to drive somewhere I haven’t been before until Siri came along, do crafts I’ve tried but I suck, spend money on myself (as Marge Simpson would say, ‘but is it a jacket we can all wear?’), give up work to do something I enjoy when it would be better for everyone including me...

I do an interesting parallel park.

I can't go in backwards, but I can get in forwards really easily. Several school parents have commented on my method at pickup.

I can parallel park, reverse park, hill starts, 3point turns so everything other than drive a straight line, main reason I have not driven in 20 years
