Adulting is hard work.
No more school holidays, no one there to make your lunches, to drive you around or arrange your doctors appointments.
For years you couldn’t want to be a ‘grown up’ and fend for yourself.
But now adulthood has arrived and you’d do anything to go back to the days when things were simpler.
Here is 19 things every 21-year-old is sick of hearing:
- Please state your name for the record.
