Millennials attend ‘The Adulting School’ to learn how to grow up

EAG:

PORTLAND, Maine – Millennials are going back to school, to learn how to be adults.

“The Adulting School’s first official session took place last week,” The Guardian reports. “During their early presentation, on time management, a number of 26-year-old attendees trickled in late.

“Reports from the summit make it sound not unlike an office party for dogs – participants waggingly sniffing each other, being told when and where to sit. They’d been sent by their parents. There were cupcakes in the afternoon.”

The Adulting School – a Portland, Maine based operation founded by a teacher and psychotherapist – aims show millennials how to do things as an adult they should have learned from their parents, such as how to open a savings account, make a bed, clean a kitchen, and other mundane but important life skills.

  1. I call fake news. There are lots of free on line sites and expensive magazines about home, cooking, money management, cleaning (white vinegar and baking soda will clean almost everything) home repairs, laundry.

    Another progressive disaster: dropping junior and high school Home Ec.

  2. What they really need is de-sensitivity training. Have them sit in a locked room with white rednecks hurling insults at them for hours until they stop crying. Then repeat the procedure how many times are necessary.
    I had a black basketball buddy whose son played on a high school team. His son got upset when members of opposing teams would call him racist names and it would throw him off his game. I suggested to his dad that he spend a few hours with me yelling racist hate-filled epitaphs at him and that after that nothing would bother him. For some reason he didn’t take me up on my offer.

  3. [one survey goes so far as to say there are 20 basic skills – ranging from reading a map to baking bread – that are in danger of extinction]

    Really? What century are we in? Will they teach wagon wheel repair, muzzleloading 101, trapping & sewing beaver (jokes in 3,2,1) pelts in the latest fashion?

    Seriously, I’d start with basic manners.

  4. A GOOD TIME FOR A REMINDER OF WHAT SEPARATES RIGHT FROM LEFT, FROM JEFF FOXWORTHY:

    Which side of the fence?

    If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

    If a Republican doesn’t like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
    If a Democrat doesn’t like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

    If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn’t eat meat.
    If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

    If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
    If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

    If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.
    If a Democrat is down-and-out he wonders who is going to take care of him.

    If a Republican doesn’t like a talk show host, he switches channels.
    A Democrat demands that those they don’t like be shut down.

    If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn’t go to church.
    A Democrat non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

    If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
    If a Democrat decides he needs health care, he demands that the rest of us pay for his.

  5. You can’t learn how to be an adult in a class room.
    It is called the school of hard knocks (cheapest school available) – get the hell out in the real world, fully cut the umbilical cord (pretend you don’t have parents for anything) and figure it all out on your own.

  7. I HATE reading/hearing nouns turned into verbs!! “Adulting” — ????

    The first lesson should have been a lecture on laziness. Laziness is the cause of turning nouns into verbs.

  8. Re: reading maps. I remember when everyone had a Thomas Guide in their car. Now, the iphone tells you where to go. Sure, sometimes it makes you go off a bridge and into a lake, but hey… lol
    Recently, I had to use a map coming out of Utah and onto an unfinished road in Arizona with no GPS available. Thank you, map!

    They tried 🙂 They first called it, “The Adultery School”. Took them a few weeks to figure that didn’t work lol
