When you're a kid, you can't wait to grow up and be able to do adult things. But, once you get to be a grown up, you realize that adult things are pretty much paying bills, tackling endless mountains of laundry and dishes, and trying to get through the working week without crying or killing someone. That's why we've collected these eleven illustrations that show you times when being an adult was just way too much. If only we could make it stop, we would… but it looks like we're going to be adulting for the rest of our days. We're not sure whether to laugh or cry at these illustrations, as they're just too real. Check them out!
