For example -- ladies out there, I'm especially talking to you -- French braiding hair. Few skills elude me quite like that one. I can't French braid a friend's hair, much less dream of doing it to my own locks. I've tried. And tried. And tried some more with no success whatsoever.
I've tried with dry curly hair, wet hair, wavy brushed hair, and three day old unwashed hair. I've turned three strands of hair into two and knotted my hair in multiple places, but I've never created a decent looking French braid.
The genuine rage that I've felt attempting to do so can be compared to little else, possibly only Matt's frustration with the "recalculating" function on our Garmin. So, whenever a girl with her hair styled in a smooth and symmetrical braid chirps, "Oh, it's so easy. You can totally do it!" I want to shout, "IT IS NOT EASY!"
