Having a what can only be described as a shed outside and not being allowed to store my bicycle in there
The land lord wont put a bar in to lock it to as "Its a health and safety risk", there is nothing inside, no reason for anyone to go in there for it to be a risk
I was going to learn how to ride a motorbike (maybe get a trike so I can haul stuff), but I have no where to put it when I get one (yeah like im leaving it outside chained up)
Urgh, this would help me get more events work as theres places that would be a bugger to get to on the bicycle (with gear), public transport would be a pain and a taxi to expensive (id ask family for a lift, but most are unreliable)
Id learn how to drive a car, but I dont have the money to do so (or to own one)

Also
My new My Hermes deliverer
Fecking useless censored, already marked something as "Singed for" on Tuesday and ive not even seen him/her, good job it wasn't expensive

Saving up for nice things, but instead having to spend the money on sensible things (bicycle bits)

People who use the term "back in the day" to describe something that happened only 2 years ago

Buying a reduced ps4 pad not sony approved obviously for 7 quid reduced from 30. Pad doesnt even work. Youbare meant to update the pad on your pc first then connect it to your ps4. It connects then disconnects 2 mins later. Id be annoyed spending 30quid for starters but 50quid for an official one isnt something i can do at a whim....so ive thrown 7 quid down the swanny anyways.

or... empty box, get it up there end on (looks like it might fit that way), get it properly supported underneath, then refill it. Not exactly quick and convenient, but handy for the less used stuff.

CRTs are possible, but awkward. I've got a number of small monitors and a couple of tellies up in my loft, only accessible via a set of steps (no proper loft ladder) and a bit of a scramble. I wouldn;t go over a 20" CRT though, just gets too awkward and heavy to manouevre. 15" tellies are no problem.

ah lofts......or as its known in my house 'the big place we don't use' the joys of dyspraxia is that I can't do ladders as I WILL fall, those that have met me know its perfectly possible for me to lose balance just from standing up and I drop things a LOT.

I went to look at a load of retro stuff for sale at a guy's house and he had loads in his loft and he couldn't understand that a guy that seemed perfectly able bodied couldn't climb a ladder into a loft, little did this guy know that I get wobbly standing on a chair to change a lightbulb THREE FEET above my head :lol:

invisible disabilities- the struggle is real :lol:
