No.

Have you ever had to return from your holiday earlier than planned?

Yes.

Have you ever been on a plane that had really bad turbulence?

No, I don't fancy doing that at all, it looks horrid.

Have you ever been in a helicopter?

No. 

Have u ever travelled first class on a train because the ordinary seats are full.  On southern no ticket inspectors are on so nobody checks.  I sometimes do this and nobody cares.  Only once on the way home from work did i get caught by an inspector and was asked to move.  No biggie

I travelled first class on Virgin trains and loved it, there was no one else in the carriage and they gave me four bottles of mineral water, some sandwiches, some crisps, a little biscuit, a pretzel and other bits and bobs that probably were worth the money it cost to upgrade. By the time you've bought a sandwich and some water from the cafe you've spent quite a bit as it is!

The plus side for me was it felt hugely more relaxing as I struggle with people in close proximity to me.

I think it was £15 to upgrade, used to be £10.

Have you ever felt let down by a medical or health professional?

Yes I had a stupid dentist who botched up a filling and left decay in the tooth.   I complained and he refunded my money plus the money I paid out for another dentist to put it right  ;D

Have you ever cut your own hair (and I don't mean just the fringe)

Yes, because my hair is long and all one length, so it's quite easy to do. I also hate/get very anxious going to the hairdresser or having them wash it in that basin, so it's easier to do it myself.

Have you ever been to Africa or Asia?

Well that narrows it down to about half the world  ;D

Yes, I've been to Hong Kong.

Have you ever ridden an electric bicycle?

No

Have you ever been on a protest march?  The only protest march   I would go on was if my music school was in threat of closure.  It is run independently but if the rent goes up i dont know.  They had a second one close by tun by the same manager but the local council uped the rent and he could not afford it.  My music school is the only decent music school for miles so it would seriously affect those locally who want a musical education including myself.  The other alternative would be to find a private teacher but it would not be the same.  Yes i have a private teacher but in a school environment.

Yes, but not a big one
 Have you ever had a really crap meal out, complained and demanded your money back?

Yes, it was my friends birthday and we went for Spanish tapas. Pretty much everything was wrong, they brought the wrong drinks, food, then brought the bill out wrong with items on we hadn't had, think they may have been off someone elses table, tried to charge us for it, in the end we complained and paid nothing.

Have you ever screamed at someone in the street?
