    I call it many names. The two that seem to be most accurate tho are "Hell" and "Work".

    I was at work and I realized that my parents never taught me how to be an adult.
    There are basic things people should know about that should be taught to them before they need them in the real world. I never knew about credit cards (other than "stay away from credit cards") or how or where to pay a bill hell driving for sure and like how to file taxes and starting a bank account to save money for when you need it plus more. So now that I'm older and hitting that age that some people agree is the time when a person is mentally an adult I'm realizing that I don't know shit and my parents held out on me.

    Anyone else feel like their parents haven't shared enough of what it's like to be an adult?

    I can take care of a household no problem but I feel like there was no talk or discussion on the ways of the world. No one expressed how exspensive things were and what having an hourly job felt like even that none of its set in stone when having a job.

    To be fair, my parents never taught my anything, so I can't really point the fact that they didn't taught me all those stuffs of life.
