These Hilarious Doodles Tell It Like It Is: Adulthood Sucks

There's this thing that my dad said once that's always stuck with me, and he said it around the time he turned 65. "Kevin," he says, because that's my name, "I don't feel like I'm 65. My thoughts, emotions and motives are pretty much the same as they were when I was 20. My body has just aged around me." He turns 70 in two weeks.

Now, as the father of two little ones, I want to impart some kind of fatherly wisdom to them that's similarly profound. Thing is, all of the things I've learned about adulthood make me wish I was a kid again. Who wants to pay bills? Or have to wait in line at the DMV? Nobody, that's who, but we're adults, and we deal with it.

Insta-Chaz is a dude on Instagram with a cool beard, so that means he's obviously progressed forward enough as an adult to grow facial hair. He doodles pictures about the realities of adulthood, and they're quite funny. And if you don't believe me, that's fine, you don't have to, because as an adult you can make your own decisions.

Like me, right now. I'm off to go eat some candy out of my kid's Halloween baskets, because I'm an adult and I can do what I want.

    Too bad the layout cut off the top one (which was featured really small in the email) Unfortunately at 62 I'm starting to relate to that.

    Yes, the one about directions. If there's more than two turns, I need it written down. But my favorite is the one about the cords under the desk. Ugh!
