Tying a Tie
Same! Video tutorials? Nope. Printable guide? Nope. Stand right beside someone as they walk me through it? Nope. And don’t get me started on the many situational variations! Have someone else tie it. Loosen it. Pull it over my head. Save it for later. Pray it stays nicely tied.

Arriving or Departing?
I have had this thought many times. And ooh, you reminded me of my inability to tell which button on an elevator will hold the door open. <|> holds it open, but >|< literally looks like someone preventing the doors from closing. I panic every time.
