Leave it to the Brits…. First they produce a poll that discovers British youth now turn into an adult at the grand old age of 25. Now they produce a list of the top 50 signs of your reaching adulthood.
I’ll link you to it at KTRH.com…..but no surprise that a lot of the factors revolve around money. You’re an adult when you pay utility bills, for instance, or pay a mortgage or pay into a retirement fund.
But also making the list: greeting people with a handshake, owning a vacuum cleaner, preferring a night in rather than a night on the town.
They also list not buying the cheapest bottle of wine in the shop. I know a lot of adults who make a point to seek the cheapest-best anyway.
It is an amusing read to see what others perceive as reaching adulthood….but I keep thinking, if you’re reading a list to determine if you’re an adult… you probably aren’t.
