never runs the tangents
I cannot navigate parking decks. I have a horrible sense of direction anyway but something about parking decks get me turned around or somesuchthing. When I used to drive to work, I had to park in a parking deck. I parked in the same general area every day. If I left for some reason and had to park somewhere different it was a disaster. I remember once being able to actually SEE my car but I was on some sort of half level in the wrong place so I couldn't get to it.
In Vegas once well..I mean who knew the casino had two parking decks? That is just unfair.
Christmas shopping, I did the same thing in the mall in my own home town. I went out the wrong exit at Norstroms and for a second I thought my car had been stolen.
I give it 15 minutes. If I can't find my car I just take the bus home, report it stolen, and wait for the police to find it.

I have no sense of direction (thanks Dad). I'm terrible at maths.

I can't parallel park. At my driving test, I just drove right between the cones outlining the space and parked in the space. The tester was like "What the heck are you doing?? I said "Let's get real here, that's what I'd do if I was actually driving, just drive around until I found a space that I could get into like that. I'll probably NEVER parallel park after I get my license." He started laughing and passed me.

^ that is ballsy. GG on it actually working, though!
As for secret fails, my biggest failure is an inability to keep secrets. Followed by my nonsecret ability to be flummoxed by the nonword 'fail' (noun).

It's not a secret fail, actually, but I am totally transparent. My face gives away my every thought from what others have told me. This is very unfortunate as I get stuck in my own thoughts very easily and it shows on my face, so people always ask if I am happy/worried/scared.
Not a dude
I throw like a girl.
Me Too!!!! I hate it, my DH says he can read my face like a book. I also suck at just about every sport I ever tried. Running is the only sport I enjoy and can say I dont look like a total fool while doing!
Completed my first half marathon 2:09:04!!!
I started running at age 19 because I thought it would allow me to dunk. On my best day I touched the rim, but no higher. 1 of my friends was shorter than me but could dunk from a standing start, which gave me the impression I just needed to be a little faster.
Me too & I hate it! I think I've really offended people before because my face gave away what I was actually thinking. For this reason, I hate opening gifts in front of others because I'm horrible at pretending that I like something if I don't really.
I can't sing AT ALL.
Remembering names of people. I have tried every trick in the book that says it will help you remember but I just can't no matter what! I am so afraid of being wrong that I rarely call anybody by their name unless I know them well. I feel badly because they probably think I don't care enough about them to try and remember their name but honestly, I have tried! And now I am so afraid I'll be wrong(and upset you further) that I'd just rather say "excuse me miss" or "hey, you" instead.
if I could change one thing about me I don't like, that one tops the list!
