It's no secret that adulting constantly presents itself with unforeseen challenges.

‘I’m very busy and very important’: 20+ adult temper tantrums from entitled Karens, neighbors, and coworkers

Just like Peter Pan, some folks will never grow up. Sure, the idea of what it means to be a grown-up is mainly shaped by societal expectations. For instance, what do you mean I can’t have Pop-Tarts for breakfast or Pop-Tarts for dinner or Pop-Tarts at all times?
