How old were you when you finally felt like a real adult? A new survey asked 2,000 people. And the average answer was 26 for men, and 23 for women. (Wow, that young? I know a few 40-year-olds who haven’t hit adulthood yet.) It also asked people to name the top SIGNS you’re an adult. Here are the top five . . .
1. Having a budget.
2. Buying a house.
3. Doing your own taxes.
4. Working on your credit score.
5. Investing in a 401k.
The rest of the top ten are doing your own laundry . . . regular doctor visits . . . using a list at the grocery store . . . cooking dinner most nights . . . and a tie between watching the news, and changing your bed sheets regularly.
They also looked at the top KIDS’ FOODS we can’t stop eating as adults. 61% of us have had pizza in the last month . . . 50% have had spaghetti . . . 40% have had a hot dog . . . 35% have had macaroni-and-cheese . . . and 35% have had chicken nuggets.
And the most quote-unquote “ADULT” foods you can have in your kitchen are vegetables . . . fruit . . . coffee . . . milk . . . meat . . . chicken . . . baking ingredients . . . fish . . . frozen food . . . and oatmeal.
