32 Times You Completely Failed at Being an Adult

Adult life is hard. That’s probably why we fail so bad at it.

1. When you didn’t know where to put the detergent in the washing machine.

2. And every time you gave up and took your laundry to your parents.

3. When you didn’t know how to set the timer on the central heating.

4. When you had to call someone to ask if you can reheat rice.

5. And when you were unsure of how much rice you can even eat.

6. When you decided that curtains are too expensive and your house doesn’t need them anyway.

7. That time you couldn’t remember your NI number.

8. Whenever you tried to fold your clothes.

9. When you bought more underwear instead of doing washing.

10. Every time you said food was too expensive but then bought loads of alcohol.

11. When you didn’t understand the value of stamps.
