Simple things you're shit at

I thought I'd start a fun Thursday thread to hear examples of things that should be really simple and other people seem to find really simple, yet for some reason, you really struggle with.

For me, the big one is folding clothes. When I see people in shops walking around and folding t-shirts perfectly with a deft flick of the wrists, I'm completely in awe. When I'm ironing, each t-shirt will take me a good minute to try and fold, with the aid of the ironing board as a base and yet the result is still crap. I've even watched youtube videos to learn the secret methods, but I just can't manage it.

The other thing is breaking eggs. I either tap it too gently that I barely crack the surface, or too hard that the thing shatters, the yolk breaks apart and there's bits of egg shell everywhere. I've been trying a double tap method recently which seems to be working a bit better, but even so, I'm sure other people don't struggle like I do.

What are yours?

Golf.. I've tried and tried, but I am worse than useless at it. I don't even bother now . Same with photography, I took it up seriously last year , 800 quid camera, 120 quid tripod, lens filters, etc etc , and still my phone takes photos that look just as good . I'm not giving up on it though, I intend to enroll in a photography class as soon as lockdown permits ..

I never mastered the art of tying shoelaces the 'proper' way. As a 48 year old man I still have to use the cheat's 'double loop' method my mother taught me.

Ironing, especially collars and sleeves. I take ages, and hate every moment of it.

As a 70 year old man I think I've mastered the art of tying my shoelaces but your talk of 'proper way' and 'double loop' has sown seeds of doubt. I'm now afraid of leaving the house in case my shoe tying technique has been wrong all the time.

Huh, it was today I learnt that I can’t tie my shoelaces ‘properly.’

Can you provide a description of the proper way please? It might be too late for me to learn a new technique though.
