Now that I’m an alleged adult supposedly in charge of my own life, a thing I wish I’d been warned about regarding adulthood was bills. Bills are, without a doubt, the fucking worst. A lot of them come around the same time as your paycheck, taking a huge chunk of it before you even realize wtf is going on.
With that in mind, here are 5 bills that will kick your ass in this hellish phase of life called adulthood.
Remember how you pissed you would get as a child when you wanted fast food but your parents told you there was rice at home or when a particular thing was cooked for the entire family and you asked for something different but were told to shut up and “eat the damn food”?
As an adult providing food for yourself, don’t you see things now from their point of view?
2) Hospital Bills
As an adult, scheduling your own hospital appointments and handling the bills, you’ll get to understand what was really going through your parents’ minds all the times they decided to treat you themselves instead of just taking you to the hospital.
All I’ll say is that most of the people you see with roommates would much rather live alone. They don’t because they can’t afford to.
4) House Repairs
Few things feel worse than returning from work to find your apartment flooded because a water pipe in the wall exploded. Houses (and a lot of the things in them) are bound to have faults at some points. Is this really the way life is supposed to be or do all humans unknowingly share their living spaces with poltergeists? Who knows?
5) Utility Bills (Electricity, Water, Phone, Internet, Waste, Security, etc)
See ehn, how do I unsubscribe from this adulting thing?
