For me it is the killing of insects. I have fantastic reflexes and instincts to trap and eventually destroy the insect. My area of specialization is mosquitoes, and my success rate in extraordinarily high. What useless skills do you have?

I'm absolutely king at measuring precisely the correct amount of coffee/sugar into a mug without actually using a spoon, just pouring from the containers and guessing. Not one complaint.

Loads of 'em, tbh. I'm the Barcelona of housework.

 

Would have to go with this.  A more specific one would be putting covers on a duvet.  Get quite embarrassed when mates moan about how hard it is (seriously though?) and I'm like, "it's a piece of piss, man." Cretins. :idiot2:

It's not hard.  I think they're just trying to look 'cool', if I'm honest.

Walking in malls. Getting on and off escalators. Queuing. Entering and exiting shops. Paying at checkouts.

 

:lol:

 

I laugh because I'm actually terrible at these things.

 

You're not alone.
