The Adulting School has just opened in Maine in the US, and we don't even know where to start with it.
With lessons such as 'how to make dental appointments' and 'how to speak to other people', it's completely crazy that people are making money from this.
According to the school's website, we are "smart and capable" adults, but have just been left astray along the way. And it's not our fault, no, it's because our "education just didn't provide us with all the skills we need (sic)."
Apparently, us Millennials just pretend that we're grown-ups and don't actually know what we're supposed to be doing with our lives.
"We know you're sick of feeling like you're pretending to be a grown-up and that someone's going to realise you don't know the sh%#t you're supposed to know," the website explains.
The "sh%#t your supposed to know" is broken down into two categories – (1) basic skills for human survival and (2) what's required to be a functioning member of society.
But don't we just learn these things along the way? The minute you turn 18 does not mean you automatically know how to 'adult'. We just pick these things up.
And let's be honest, according to this school, we're all screw ups.
But we all have days when we just don't function, or make mistakes, or just want to crawl into a hole full of blankets, and that's OK. We don't have to have our sh*t together all the time. That's exhausting.
If you want to apply to attend the school, the website offers you a quiz to find out what your 'Adult IQ' is, and it compiles of statements such as "I know how to chop, dice, julienne or mince a veggie," and "I'm great at knowing when I NEED to buy something and when I just WANT to buy it."
The only part of the school that seems in any way knowledgeable is the lessons on fiance, but apart from that, it sounds like absolute BS.
We're never going to be perfect adults all the time, and we're cool with that.
