if friction vanishes from our lives then -:

 1.  we could not walk, we would keep slipping
 

 2.  In a frictionless world, all machines will become 100% efficient.

 3.  the cars wouldn 't stop, so there would be a lot of accidents

 4. There would be no sound because the waves have to be 'tranferred ' but with no friction they cannot transfer!

 5.  Writing would be impossible, the pencil would slip off the page.

 6. Knives would be much less effective

  7.  Matches wouldn 't work

  8. Phone audio quality would be a lot better, as friction would not have any effect on telephone cables.

  9. The Olympics would be pointless. All events would be reduced to a test of strength pushing away from the start.
 

  10. In order to move from one place to another, you would have to make something else move in the opposite direction.

Hi,
AkashDeep537AD has given absolutely correct answer. So, you can refer to it.
Here are few more situations which you will face once friction is gone
1. You would not be able to walk. Hence travelling will be impossible. 2. You would face difficulty in keeping yourself on any surface. 3. You would not be able to write anything. 4. Dancing will become out of question. 5. It would be very difficult to hold and handle things. 6. You will not be able to burn matchsticks.
7. You would not be able to play anything.
Hope this helps,
