205 - Putting together flat pack furniture and having pieces left
Many people love going to places like IKEA and then have hours of fun pouring over instruction manuals putting together furniture. Then you get to the end and there are four screws left, they don’t seem to fit anywhere and you’re pretty sure you put all the correct screws in the right place. They’ve surely given you some extra ones, haven’t they?
Yes there are lots of apps for this now but you’ll think, “I’m not stupid, I don’t need an app to find my car in the car park”. You’ll then spend a quarter of a hour walking round pressing your key fob and trying to see which car’s lights flash. It works eventually and you’ll no doubt find your car was two paces from where you first stood looking around like a confused moron.
There are plenty of people who use a social media check in service such as Foursquare or Gowalla. You spend all that time checking into places like the local super market just to keep a mayorship alive. Then you go to somewhere awesome and get home and realise you forgot to check in!

I’m sure I’m not the first person to sit on a toilet with the lid down for whatever reason. How damn annoying to find out as you sit down that the lid, despite it’s sturdy look, is actually rather flimsy. It’s likely this isn’t something you’ll do in your own house, I imagine you know the strength of you own toilet seat, so having to explain the now obvious dint and the noise you were making trying to bash it out could be a little embarassing.
