Simple stuff you should know but don't


#1

I don’t know how many days are in each month. Always have to look it up.


#2


#3

30 days hath September, april, june, and November
all the rest have 31 except February alone which blah blah blah sometimes 28 sometimes 29, no one really knows.


#4

Reckon you’re better off sticking with the traditional LUV and HÄT tattoos tbh.


#5


#6

28 days clear
and 29 in each leap year!


#7

How to change a plug
How to change a tyre


#8

I can never remember which colours are live, earth and neutral on a plug.


#9

Basic sewing.


#10

Plugs are dead simple.

Change one today!


#11

Terrible knowledge of UK kings/queens and their reigns, order, etc. Often brutally exposed by the likes of University Challenge. Especially disappointing as I had them all on a ruler I got from Hampton Court Palace when I was about 8.


#12

I’ve only so much room in my brain.

I keep electricians in work so it’s alright


#13


#14

The alphabet. I can do it in order, but if you ask me what’s before a letter/after a random one then Christ alive I’m no use. Also what months are what number (I.e. January 1, February 2, etc). Terrible state of affairs


#15

I always used to remember bLue goes Left and bRown goes Right. Innit.


#16

had to change a tyre at the weekend, somehow a massive screw had found its way into my tyre, and I managed to get a parents space in Tescos which gave me room to swap it.

Had to do it when I was 17/18 and made a real hash of it so always made sure I knew what was in my boot. it’s actually really simple, the secret is to loosen the wheel nuts while the car is on the ground before jacking it up.


#17

That’s all fine and everything. It’s just one of those things I know I’ll need to look up before I attempt it. I can remember that the wire that looks like it should be the earth (the brown one) is actually live. I guess that blue is quite a neutral colour so that would make sense.


#18

Or phone kwik fit mobile fitting and work pay for it


#19

At one time it was red for live and green for earth. Then they realised that was a big issue for colourblind people, esp in the days when stuff cane without a plug, so they made one brown and one stripy for better contrast


#20

Mortgages - know nothing about them or how they work, when people try to explain I get bored or confused or both.
