20 Hilarious Times People Were Completely Confused On How To Be An Adult

You learn something new every day.

These people are so perplexing. When you think adulting is hard and paying tax is complicated, you will feel better going through this list. People cook tens of plastic spatula and possibly build up cancer because they don’t know they shouldn’t do that. People are throwing away the whole vacuum cleaner instead of emptying the container.

Adulting is hard. But these people have not even passed the basic knowledge they should have to be allowed to live alone. And we would have never known these people existed if it weren’t for them sharing it on Reddit.

“One of roommates in college would go through plastic spatulas like crazy. She’d melt them and wouldn’t say anything about it. She’d only tell me when I’d go to use it and wonder why it was messed up. She’d always say it was due to the spatula being made of cheap plastic. No. I finally caught her one day. She’d be cooking something and would walk away LEAVING THE PLASTIC SPATULA IN THE PAN WHILE IT WAS STILL ON!”Fantastic_Relief

“A friend who was pushing 40 had never paid a bill before. She had gone from living with her parents to living in a dorm to living with her parents again until she got married, then she got divorced and was living on her own for the first time. Got a text from her asking if my power was out too, then she realized it was just her. Her excuse was she never paid attention to the bills because she thought they were “receipts” and that the cost was included in her rent. Her water was cut off a couple weeks later and we had to talk about that, too.”ReddishWedding2018


“Had to ask my roommate to please wash his hands after touching raw chicken. He was cool to just… go about his day before I asked. He thought I was being a wacko neat freak. The same guy also thought his sheets wouldn’t fit in the washing machine so he just… never washed them. When I asked him please not drop silverware down the garbage disposal and leave it he said I had too many house rules.”GotGhostsInMyBlood

“Every few weeks I catch my roommate trying to put his metal tea strainer in the microwave. This is inspite of the fact that our first week living in this apartment, he destroyed the microwave and had to pay for a new one because he put a metal tea strainer in the microwave.”MeesterPepper


“My friend in college once lamented, “Ugh. I have to pee and I just put a tampon in like five minutes ago. I hate having to pull them out dry. Also, it’s such a waste.”

Her mother taught her that there is only one hole down there and peeing with a tampon in is not possible. It will f**k up your bladder. Took a lot of me showing articles and diagrams and answering questions to convince her there are, indeed, two holes. She peed while the tampon was still in and called her mother in utter shock to share the good news.”


“She made brownies from a box. The box instructions say “grease the bottom of an 8×8 pan before pouring in the brownie batter.” You bet your **s this b**ch picked up the 8×8 pan, flipped it over, greased the BOTTOM of it, and then flipped it back over and poured in the brownie batter.”TopRamenisha

First year at uni, a girl in my halls is microwaving some food and left it in the metal foil container… It took 3 fire engines to put out the fire and we had to have a new kitchen installed. Not to mention, this was at like 3am and I had an exam the next day. I was not impressed.”sumandark8600

“A girl I knew in college. Her dad called once to remind her that every so often she needed to put oil in her truck. She did. Then her truck started smelling like french fries and then died. Even after trying to explain it, she couldn’t understand that this was directly related to the quart of vegetable oil she put in the motor.”snowman818
