1 | Having your hair washed and massaged by a 16-year-old work experience girl before having it cut. Tense.

3 | Giving someone else a massage. Admit it, you don't know what you're doing.

4 | Breakfast in bed. There's the crumbs, the lack of purchase and the question of where to put your orange juice.

5 | Rooftop bars or restaurants in England. Blustery.

6 | Going to watch your mate run the marathon. Early.

7 | A karaoke duet. There are no winners here.

8 | The first-class carriage. Isn't this just how trains should be all the time?

9 | Beanbags.

10 | Taking the paper to the work toilet. Yes, people do notice.

11 | Freestanding baths in hotel bedrooms.

12 | Golf driving ranges. A haven of quiet despair for men who don't want to go home.

13 | Sickies from work. Daytime TV isn't what it was.

14 | Reading the Sunday papers on a leather sofa in a gastro pub. You're too self-conscious to actually read anything.

15 | A second frame of bowling. By rack 3, you're just going through the motions.

16 | Letting another driver in when you're not in any rush. You'll end up getting caught at the lights.

17 | The best man's speech.

18 | Oysters. Surely the greatest PR scam of them all.

19 | Adventurous ordering in a restaurant. You should have just got the steak.
