Instead of teaching algebra, religion and other useless subjects, prepare us for some of the grim realities of adult life instead!

Kick-started by a tweet from Lauren Chanel Allen, people have been sharing their own adult problems. At times hilarious, insightful and relatable, this list compiled by Bored Panda definitely makes for entertaining reading.

It's just much harder managing that when you live alone than with a larger family. Even the smallest portions can be a lot for a single person. My mom never had trouble with that when she cooked for us 4. Now that she's living alone, she's having these problems too.

My dad used to always say this and I thought it was just something old people thought. Youth is truly wasted on the young.

Story of my life. Even when you make relatively okay money, every fucking thing is so so sooo expensive.

Wow, really? Maybe you should change jobs if you feel like you want to die or need to find excuses not to go! Working isn't that bad! I mean, of course it depends on each person's job, personal motivation, and other factors such as possible illnesses (I'm thinking of depression), but weren't you already more or less used to this sort of morning routine when you went to school? High school? University?

I'm 73. When i was younger, both my parents advised me to always have younger people among my friends. i have found this to be very wise advice.
