When I first moved out of home, the greatest shock to me was the price of simple things like detergent or decorative cushions. Being a child meant that I thought these things were just magical additions to a household that appeared out of (seemingly) nowhere. How wrong I was.
Most of us can leave home knowing that we have a set of basic life skills under our belt. Maybe you know how to change a car tyre because you spent a lot of time with your father, or maybe your mother showed you how to make blueberry pie. Whatever the case, no one knows how to do absolutely *everything*, right? So the people of the internet gathered to reveal what they fail at in life. Don't be ashamed. Share yours too!
