Worst Things About Being an Adult

The Top Ten
1 Having to Have a Job

Honestly yes, at the risk of sounding like a spoiled brat (forgive me, I was raised like one from both parents) thank you so much mother and father for giving me the gift of life, I gift I have to literally work for until the day I die or I'll be homeless and miserable.

I would like to just collect money for free.

Unless you like that job

2 Having to Pay Taxes

Honestly, yes, who even decided this was a good idea, government gets money from MY hard WORK?

Everyone's least favorite word in the English dictionary.

I'm not looking forward to being an adult.

3 Having to Pay Bills

Bills, bills, bills and more bills get use to seeing them in your mailbox.

4 Being Expected to Act Like an Adult

All the people who tell me to "grow up" and to stop enjoying the things I enjoy doing are ignorant morons, plain and simple. I never wanna "act my age" and never will.

Me in eighth grade: (Cries because Dad won't let me go to Walmart)
Dad: You are not eight years old. You are in eighth grade, the oldest year of middle school, and you shouldn't cry over such a small thing. It's not as bad as Grandpa's death two years ago.
Me as an adult: I'm not going to Walmart, because I'm afraid Dad won't let me. I don't even want to be banned from Walmart or severely punished when I get home.

Not going to Walmart is one of my childhood punishments that has become a goal and a blessing in my adulthood.

At least if your a voice actor and if you get to spend time with the people you choose to be with this doesn't apply. They are so lucky.

People are always telling you to grow up and act your own age.

5 Never Having Enough Time

My life goes by WAY too fast due to all the homework I get in college and I also sleep in a lot and my parents make me go to bed early.

Tell me about it my job always keeps me busy I almost never have time to go On The Top Tens List website anymore.

Between Work and Other stuff most adults never time to watch movies, play video games or anything else fun.

Seriously, where does it all go?

6 Having to Be Responsible All the Time

As a kid you mess up no big deal but as an adult everything falls on your shoulders.

7 Worrying About Getting an STD
8 Getting Thrown in Jail When You Break the Law

Kids/Teens are sent to detention centres when they break the law.

9 No Summer Vacation
10 Relationship Pressures
The Contenders
11 Metabolism Slows Down
12 Not Being Able to Party Anymore
13 Having to Raise Kids

In never having kids
Reasons:
1. Temper Tantrums
2. Spoiled
3. Having to do everything for them
4. Take them to school
5. Changing their diapers
6. They are loud
7. They are disgusting (9-0 years old)

I will never have kids

14 Physical Appearance Deteriorates
15 If You Don't Do It, No One Else Will
16 Life is More Boring

That is definitely true. As you get older, life is no longer fun like it was when you were a little kid. For me, whenever it snows and school gets cancelled (I'm a teenager), I get really stressed, irritable, sad, depressed, etc. When I was younger, I used to get really excited whenever it snowed, but now, I no longer do. I live in Lynnwood, WA. I'm just glad that the snow is not as bad as some states, like Chicago.

When I was a little kid, my life was fun. I got to do whatever I wanted, such as playing with toys, playing out in the snow, miss school (due to snowy weather, since I didn't like school until now). But now, whenever I had snow day, I realized how boring it was :(

Life doesn't have to become boring if you keep your inner child alive.

17 People Telling You that You're Too Old for ________

Honestly, at 25, I get stares for playing Pokemon and Yugioh, but to them, I say, mind yo own damn business, if you want to be boring and miserable, be my guess, but I will always enjoy watching Spongebob and playing video games and card games.

If someone ever tells me I am too old for amusement parks and roller coasters, they will feel my wrath.

Honestly, screw anyone who says I'm "too old" to do things like trick or treating.

18 Lose Touch with What's "Cool"

Think of what Abe Simpson said when you reach older age. "With it"

19 Hangovers
20 Always Being Tired
21 Growing Hair in Places
22 Parents No Longer Fix Your Problems

For example I'm an adult and my mom is overprotective and won't allow me to use to go out alone, but when I ask her to take me on vacations more, she told me that she doesn't have to care about my problems anymore since I'm an adult and that I have to deal with it. FML! >:(

I mean it's part of life. Being independent is way way better than having to rely on other people on spoonfeeding you.

24 Mid-Life Crisis
25 Getting Punished for Goofing Off
