- Cobblers – He feels that they shouldn’t exist in modern life.
- People telling him he is tall – he already knows and is reminded of it on a daily life.

Joan Bakewell is an English journalist and television presenter. Here is what she tried to get into Room 101:
- Gardening - She doesn’t like gardening as it’s housework out of doors and it’s hard work.
- Customer service surveys – Because there aren’t enough options, at least not the ones that we want.
- Chewing Gum – It loses its flavour very quickly and you then have a mouth full of rubber that doesn’t do anything.
