Worst Things About Being an Adult


The Top Ten

1 Having to Have a Job

Unless you like that job

I would like to just collect money for free.

2 Having to Pay Taxes

Everyone's least favorite word in the English dictionary. - egnomac

I'm not looking forward to being an adult. - funnyuser

3 Having to Pay Bills

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

4 Never Having Enough Time to Do the Things We Enjoy

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. - ZZDOORAL

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

5 Being Expected to Act Like an Adult

I'm 26 and I like to act like a kid sometimes but my parents get embarrassed by it :(

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. - egnomac

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. - egnomac

7 No Summer Vacation
8 Worrying About Getting an STD
9 Getting Thrown in Jail When You Break the Law

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

10 Relationship Pressures

The Newcomers

? Police getting angry with us whenever we act like children

The Contenders

11 Metabolism Slows Down

Me as a kid: eat lots of dessert and chocolate and drink lots of soda and never get fat or get high blood sugar
Me as an adult: eat desserts in moderation and gain 5 lbs and nearly got diabetes

12 Not Being Able to Party Anymore
13 Having to Raise Kids

I will never have kids

14 Physical Appearance Deteriorates
15 If You Don't Do It, No One Else Will
16 Growing Hair in Places
17 Lose Touch with What's "Cool"
18 Hangovers
19 Having a Baby Crying in the Night

Again why I’m not having kids

20 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 :( - Stazemar000

21 Always Being Tired
22 Closer to Death
23 Mid-Life Crisis
24 You don’t have time to be with loved ones
25 Punished for Goofing Off
26 Parents Think that Since You’re an Adult, They No Longer Care About Your Problems and Make You Deal with Them Yourself

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! >:(

27 Jail Time
