The News.

Responsibilities lmao.

Former CNN Anchor Candy Crowley said...

Show me a piano falling down a mineshift, and I'll show you A Flat minor.

Do Tell said...

+1 Tricia.


As for me, it's seeing other adults that refuse to act like adults. And not in the fun, "oh he's got a boyish sense of fun and whimsy," but in the immature, entitled, unaccountable way.

Having to deal with other so-called adults who act like kids or have the intelligence level of one.

Dog Mom said...

Having to be responsible. Say the correct thing and do the correct thing all of the time...or at least most of the time.

You get to be your unguarded self more when you are a child and then again when you are an old person.

David Howes said...

+1 @Tricia13!

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Everything but the drinking.

Boo Hearne said...

There is nothing I dislike about being an adult. To be free and on my own and making my own decisions in life is priceless!

austin said...

+1 Tricia - The News hands down.

Sea Hag said...

+1 Boo Hearne. The plusses far outweigh the minuses.

M Ag said...

Lack of youthful energy

Jheanel J said...

Realizing that people can be horrible and evil. You want to see the best in people and the world, but sometimes you have to accept that there are vicious, vile, and disgusting things.

just sayin' said...

+1 boo hearne. life gets easier and more enjoyable the less you give a crap.

oh wait, what i dislike? the slower metabolism SUCKS.

Dena said...

I generally like having the knowledge and experience of being an adult, but I would love to have a 3-month summer break again.

OT: When did Enty change the blog format back to the original??? I had stopped reading because I just couldn't deal with that new format :-( I saw a post on twitter that lead me back yesterday and HOORAY!!! Thanks Enty!!

PhyllisWhitweed said...

The physical pain of aging. Also becoming invisible after not being young and hot anymore.

Seachica said...

Not having parents to lean on for help and support.

Tricia13 said...

😰

Do Tell said...

This site is so glitchy. I can't stand the problems with trying to comment here.

austin said...

I know Do Tell. I don't recall having this problem when the site used blogger.com the first time. The only difference between then and now is having to log in to comment now. Maybe that has something to do with it.

lucy said...

no one ever wants to go outside and play

Sd Auntie said...

Insomnia. Miss my 8 hours of sleep and dreams.

Mail

AndrewBW said...

I never minded being an adult. When I was a kid I wanted nothing more than to grow up as quickly as possible and stop being a kid. But this getting old stuff now is for the birds.

Phelps said...

People who forget how much it sucks to be a kid and complain about being adults.

kristaylor6663 said...

Music! Music seems to suck now I'm an adult

Count Jerkula said...

Alexandria nailed it. I cant wait until i am old enough or sick enough to not care again. Gotta go get a bagel for breakfast? Where are my keys and bottle of gin. Thoughts like this help me get through the week.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Taxes. Filling out tax forms. Trying to understand my pension plan. Paperwork, basically, although it isn’t on paper any more.

Misty said...

Other ‘adults’

Maude Labowski said...

Existential dread

Doug said...

The news, also known as the human condition, the power structure, and the course of history.

Spiney said...

Celebrity fragrances

Doug said...

@kristaylor6663: not "music", but popular music since the 1970s, with a few exceptions. Real music can make adulthood bearable.

@Former CNN Anchor Candy Crowley: not a lot of genuine A-flat minor out there, with seven flats. But here's a great one:

just sayin' said...

spiney, i'm in love with your answer (tho i don't entirely understand, lol.)

shakey said...

I hated menstrual cramps. Suffered from them horribly. Then menopause came! My libido went up and I was so happy to not feel like dying every month. Then arthritis came to town, and various other aches and pains.

Have to agree about most music today, taxes, and worry about not having enough to retire on.

And having a libido when my husband does not, lol!

Rock god said...

Having to have to make the decision to get my daughters dog put to sleep (cancer) and breaking their hearts when I told them he’d died (I just told them cancer) holding them till they cried themselves to sleep. Absolutely fucking horrible.

Ms. Cloud said...

Being married to my husband

Scandi Sanskrit said...

Yeah. Being a fatalist child was so much better. We were all going to become doctors and astronauts...

Scandi Sanskrit said...

😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

SHUT UP

KittensRUs said...

Bills, worry, bills, worry. I wish I could follow my dreams without winding up homeless but you just can't.

arthirius said...

one step closer to death. ugh

Samantha M. said...

Being alone. And realizing that because I'm too afraid to even put myself out there, it will never change.

Alexandria Anna said...

Count, it's never too late to start running from responsibilities, just saying lol. But I'm the worst person to take advices from 😂

Angie Dutton said...

Paying bills

Zophie Enzo said...

Having to support myself and realizing how expensive everything is, worrying how I'll do it for the rest of my life when I'm already tired and burnt out, make less money than I did 10 years ago, but more expenses. And also the disillusionment about how so many truly awful people exist, life isn't fair, and seeing my parents age.
