As far as I know mathematics, music and chess are the only areas where true prodigies exist so I guess that the opposite must also exist. I am e.g. totally lacking any musical skills and I'd exchange calculus anytime for your voice.
You flatter me, sir. Thank you.

This reminds me of a visual joke I saw the other day.

A girl is talking to a former algebra teacher. She says something like : "Hey, Ms. Morten. Ya know, I've been out of high school like 10 years, and I was never great at algebra. Never once in my life skills
was there a need to 'find X'. So there! FACE!"
