    I'll start with..

    Not being able to remember my own mobile number - and I've had the same phone for 6 years.

    I can't whistle, never have been able to.

    I can't roll my "R"s

    Does anyone else find things difficult? :D

    I don't know my own phone number either. Who can remember 11 digits?

    Where to being. :confuse:

    Forgetting people's names just after they've introduced themselves to me. :think:

    I was slow to learn the art of whistling too @Long Lashes.

    I struggle to know mine too and each week I have to insert my phone number into the ASDA 'scan & go' function - I still don't remember it.

    Yet, I can remember my landline number from when I was a child at home and the number of my first home after I left my parents.

    I cannot retain directions, I go to the same stadiums in and around Manchester and still don't know how to get there. I've been going since 2001

    The greatest mystery on earth: putting a phone between ear and shoulder.

    It's not possible, it's not humanly possible - and yet so many people do it.

    I find it difficult to understand WHY when I am making a simple purchase WHY do I have to give them my email, phone number and bra size. I just want to buy the product and leave.

    I was in Topman the other day and the guy asked for my email address, I thought he was hitting on me for a split second. Then I realised that that is how they send you a receipt if you pay using contactless card.

    Also lots of stores ask for your postcode too.

    I've had this happen in America, but not in my hometown, maybe it's coming my way, starting with NI

    When you buy a TV now they ask for your full address. I guess it's for the TV licensing people. But a lot of places ask for the postcode address to entice you with advertising and store cards and what not, also the email address means they can bombard you with advertising and tell you when sales are happening. I have spent loads of money I shouldn't because I have been notified of an online sale.

    Yeah, we've had that a while here too.

    If I was asked and they were persistent with it, I would give them a random address, or maybe someone's email I don't like.

    Years ago when the internet was still kinda newish I remember there was someone I hated and so I went online and entered his details into mailing lists for lots of feminine products. I mean hundreds, I spent all day signing up to get free samples of everything from lipsticks to perfumes to sanitary towels. He was a very um, butch manly man.

    This happened to me once (I bought some batteries), and I refused to give it to her.

    He made my life horrible. And it brought me joy and laughter, me and a friend lying on the floor in stitches thinking about all this junk mail and stuff arriving. For the rest of his life.

    Nothing says "I love you" like feminine hygiene products and lipstick.

    I struggle with this too and someone told me the best way to remember is to repeat their name to them when saying "hi" back.

    Me too!

    I feel a lot better knowing its not only me :lol: I have my number listed on my own phone to find out what it is.

    I struggle with this if someone is verbally giving me directions, after "turn right and then next left" the rest of it becomes a blur. Thank goodness for sat navs.

    I do this too. It's a nightmare when I have to order takeaway Chinese food. They always ask my number, so I have to go into my phone and write down my number before I make the call.
