Let’s not beat around the bush: “adulting” is hard. Some of us are better prepared for the challenges of adulthood than others, but at times it’s tiring, maddening, and exhausting.
I mean, why didn’t they teach us how to do this in school? Instead we’re reading 19th century novels? WHY???????
Maybe we should have learned these skills before we entered adulthood? Perhaps!
In any event, here are 14 reasons why adults need more skills to pay the bills…
1. The progression
The cheese is quite expensive, though…
Me at 5: I want to be an astronaut
Me at 15: I want to be a pro athlete
Me at 25: fuck me how expensive is cheese

2. Not much fun
But now there’s so many ways to get things delivered!
Who knew the the most taxing part of being an adult is trying to figure out what the fuck to have for dinner every goddamn night until you die

3. Everything is so damn expensive
How much is milk? What?!?!!
peak adulting is when you start using the phrase “they done lost their damn mind” regarding prices at the grocery store

4. All that junk mail, fam!
Why is there even a thing like mail anyway?
I remember the way I used to get excited whenever I received a letter addressed to me when I was younger but every time I receive one now I think “fucking what now”

5. Sad, but true
I think they need to fix this immediately!
apparently you have to eat healthy more than once to get in shape. this is cruel and unfair.

6. That’s life
Why can’t you all just stay the f**k in there, already?!?
You're not an adult until you have a cabinet full of Tupperware and every time you open it they all spill out and you can never find a matching lid for the one you want to use.

7. Let’s go over this one more time
I really hate using exclamation points!
Adult email culture is ending every sentence with an exclamation point, then proofreading to see how many is socially acceptable to keep.

8. Just three more minutes
The game is real.
i really be trying to take 2-3 minute naps in the morning, my alarm will go off at 6:30 and I’m like “I’ll get up at 6:33”

9. Ugh, don’t remind me
Money goes so quickly!
$100 is basically an adult dollar ??♂️

10. Double-edged sword
More like double stuff Oreos…
BEING AN ADULT
PRO: Nobody can stop you from eating cheese and Oreos for dinner
CON: Nobody can stop you from eating cheese and Oreos for dinner

11. Wait a second…
Those sinus infections, though…
Best parts about being an adult:
-fierce trust issues
-always anxious about something but can rarely pinpoint what
-constantly on the verge of a sinus infection

12. I relate to this so hard
If you can save some cents, save some cents!
Y’all ever put a $7.02 pack of chicken back and got a pack that was $6.98?! ?
— BLACK JESUS??♂️ (@MuuFaSa) August 13, 2019
13. Yep, you’re pretty much stuck with yourself
Time to accept it!
I just cannot believe I have to be an adult for the rest of my life

14. Nowhere to run
But plenty of work left to do! Ha!
Me: I want to travel
Bank account: Where? To work?
— Modern Adult (@adultproblem) May 30, 2018
Ok, that’s enough laughing: back to work!
Alright, not quite yet. We want to hear from you!
Which one of these did you relate to the hardest?
