    With synthetic oil for my 2015 Fit it's almost 90 dollars for the most basic oil change even at the cheap spots. The good thing is I only have to go once every 10k miles or so.

    Not crazy to me, that's what I said too, and it's the only way I can remember since I learned in 3rd grade or whenever.

    It always points to the smaller number.

    No one knows how to put the splash guards back on.

    I'm on my third splash guard - the other two came off at speed because the mechanic didn't put them back on correctly. Now, I take it off before I drop the car off for service and put it back on myself when it comes back.

    My next car will not have a splash guard.

    Re-making a bed. I can put the new sheets on and make well + look decent, but once slept in I cannot make it look good or get out wrinkles. Best compensating strategy is pull covers up while I'm in bed and then try to straighten but even this takes another 2-3 trips around the bed. Most embarrassing as a guest.

    I don't know what bucket this falls under, but I go to a grocery store 5-6 days a week. Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Big Y, Stop and Shop, Fitzgeralds, Fresh Market. I go to the Big Y in Avon and West Hartford. I go to the Stop and Shop in Granby, West Hartford, Farmington and Avon. I go to either of the Whole Foods in West Hartford. And places like Crown Market or D&D (when it was open) in Hartford. I go to A Dong Chinese Supermarket in West Hartford maybe once every 4-6 weeks.

    Even with a list. Even planning out what I would eat for the week, I stop almost every night. I don't know why.

    Ditto. I cannot make a bed, and do what you do -- straighten it out while still in it, then touch it up after getting up. When I'm a guest, I fold the covers back on a 30 degree angle, and sleep on the open spot, then fold them back after I get up.

    I also can't iron a shirt. Period. I cannot do it. Hell, I couldn't iron a towel if I had to.

    I've played poker with friends probably 30 times in the last 3 years. I come in 4th of 8 just about every time. It's really amazing. It doesn't matter who I'm playing with, the results are nearly always the same.

    Finding studs on a wall. I know the math for spacing, I use a stud finder, I see the LED's, I hear the beeps.

    And then I drill. Swing and a miss. I have literally just drilled along a straight line making a dozen holes just to find the spot.

    I'm also terrible at backing in to spaces straight. I line up my car, use (or not use) back up camera, see the lines on either side. I come to a stop and I look out the windshield and look to the sides. To my eyes, it looks like I'm straight, but then I'm way off. I'm actually better at backing a boat down a ramp on a trailer with an SUV than I am backing a sedan in to a regular parking spot.

    Finally, I am horrible at pretending to care about conversation I don't care about. I used to be really good at it. Then I just got to be a wiseass to see how many sarcastic comments I could say without the person knowing. Now? I just go to work on my computer, look at my phone or something else.

    The first shirt I ever ironed was the day of my wedding. somehow I didn't burn a hole in it.

    Now if I had only not broken my nose a few weeks beforehand I would have been golden...

    I've never been successful at peeling hard boiled eggs. ALWAYS tear off chunks from the top and usually end up just throwing that sucker in the trash.

    So, a guy with the screen name "Fartman69" eats hard boiled eggs? That's a big surprise. I think you sit in my section at the football games.

    I realized having breakfast this morning, I am 5 decades in and still can't properly open a new bag (wax) of cereal. I still refuse to use a sharp knife for a clean opening, probably due to pride. Are you supposed to?

    Why do they 'still' make them so hard to open?
