NORTH BAY — The default approach to asking any question when you are a kid is to ask an adult – whether it’s a parent, a teacher, or a Walmart Employee silently trying to have a mental breakdown.
But what do you do when you are an adult?
“It’s like, man, where’s all these adults that were around when I was a kid?” sighs local adult John Turcotte, 30. “Then I remember that that’s me.”
This isn’t a one off occurrence with Millennials, with many online sharing the same feeling.
“I accidentally punched a hole in my wall two weeks ago,” says fellow local adult Michelle Walker. “I spent two hours watching YouTube videos on how to patch it with drywall, how to mud it, and so on.”
“But all I want to do was ask an adult. I’m 38.”
A Little Buddy
While it may feel like people within the Millennial generation should have gotten to that point of being the ‘adults’ of the world, many blame generations before refusing to step aside, retire, or die already.
“Just the other day, when walking down the street I saw a little buddy,” recounts North Bay adult Reg Claypool. “He was just bawling. He tells me he got separated from his mother, and I’m like, damn… we should probably find an adult.”
“I’m 41 and I have two kids.”
