A while back, I made a post that shared Reddit stories about adults lacking common sense. The BuzzFeed Community had a lot of their own stories to share, so here are some of the funniest ones:
1."I had a roommate in college who didn't know that food purchased from the frozen aisle needed to stay in the freezer. I witnessed her pull a stack of rotting TV dinners out of the kitchen cabinet one night."
5."I had a 20-year-old friend in college who thought it was marginally possible to get pregnant from giving a blowjob. She thought the semen could travel to her uterus through the stomach if she swallowed."
6."My friend and I were Skyping after she moved into her new dorm at university. It was midday and she pulled the blinds down and had all the lights on. She was complaining about having to pay bills, and I said, ‘Well you’ve got all your lights on, of course your bills will be high.’ To which she went ‘What?’ And I had to explain lighting costs money. She was beyond shocked and turned all her lights off afterward."
8."I was making mashed potatoes for the first time. I peeled them, put them in boiling water for 15 minutes, and they were done. I started mashing them, but they were so hard that they wouldn't. I didn't realize it helps to cut them up as well."
10."Apartment management had to send out a letter to the entire complex on how to write a check. Two things that stuck out were 'Don’t use markers, crayons, or pencils. Black or blue ink only' and 'Make the check out to [apartment company], not yourself."
11."When I was an RA in the dorms, I had a resident come up to me and say there was something wrong with two of the washers. I went with her to look at it and she informed me that the washers started making a lot of noise and when she went over to check, it was filling with water. So she turned it off and threw her clothes in the dryer. This woman thought the WASHING machine was broken because it was filling with water."
12."A girl I went to high school with was so sure that women with wider hips already had sex because her mom taught her that when you have sex, your hips widen. I have wide hips, so she thought I had sex already. I had to explain to her that wasn’t the case, but she didn’t listen."
13."I had to pee shortly after putting a tampon in. My boyfriend came to the bathroom door and said, 'I thought you said you just put a tampon in,' to which I said 'I did' and he said, 'Then how are you peeing if you have a tampon in your vagina?' I'm 25 and my boyfriend turns 29 this year."
15."I was talking to my neighbor about cold brew coffee and she was like 'Yeah, I love making cold brew. I make a pot of coffee and then stick it in the fridge for the rest of the week.' That’s not how that works."
18."When I was in culinary school, I took an oenology (the study of wines and winemaking) class with a guy who thought grapes grew on trees. Bear in mind, this was a junior year class so he already had an associate’s degree at the time."
