20 Things Every Twentysomething Is Tired Of Hearing

What is this, the Spanish Inquisition?! (And yes, I know what that is.)

Posted on

1. "What do you really want to do with your life?"

Via esik.tumblr.com

Ugh: What I really want to do is just figure things out, and not have to deal with this ridiculous question.

2. "Did you buy that [INSERT ANYTHING HERE] with your OWN money?"

Via hola105.tumblr.com

Ugh: Yes, and it was extremely difficult to do. I'm eating peanut butter and jellies for the next month, but now I'm the proud owner of a sofa bed.

3. "You could always move back in with your parents."

Ugh: If I do have to move back in with my parents, can we please not ever talk about it or acknowledge it?

4. "You do want to get married eventually, right?"

Via stuff.co.nz

Ugh: Yes? Maybe? I don't know?! Stop asking!

5. "So, have you had a lot of different jobs?"

Ugh: Why, yes, I have. What of it?!

6. "Do you have health insurance?"

Ugh: Look, getting a job is hard enough these days, let alone one that gives you health insurance. So, no, maybe I don't. But if I do, then EFF YES.

7. "You should check out Obamacare!"

Via imgur.com

Ugh: Thank you for this incredibly obvious suggestion.

8. "What's a Snapchat? How does an Instagram work?"

Ugh: Ask someone younger, because the truth is I don't get this shit either.

9. "Have you tried online dating?"

Via trinitycoders.wordpress.com

Ugh: Yes, I have. And I've got a lot of horrifying stories to prove it.

10. "So, people don't meet IRL anymore?"

Via giphy.com

Ugh: Of course they do, this is America, damnit.

11. "When are you going to get a real job?"

Via imgur.com

Ugh: I'm working my ass off, bitch. 'Nuff said.

12. "How many roommates do you have?"

Via welcome-to-myhappyplace.tumblr.com

Ugh: It's not like I want to have them, but thank you for reminding me.

13. "How are you feeling about the big 3-0?"

Via lsatprincess.tumblr.com

Ugh: I don't know! Funny thing, being in your twenties means you're not 30 yet. So, I'll get back to you when I hit that life hurdle.

14. "How much are you paying in rent?"

Ugh: A) You can't just ask someone this question! B) The answer is too much for way too little.

15. "Your clock is ticking ..."

Via myfriendsaremarried.tumblr.com

Ugh: I get that. But if you really want to have that "can women have it all?" debate, I don't have answers for you.

16. "Or you could always consider freezing your eggs ..."

Via imgur.com

Ugh: Sure! Wanna pay for it?

17. "Do you have a lot of debt?"

Via multitudeofgifs.tumblr.com

Ugh: Yeah, again, this is America.

18. "You know, the right person will come around when you least expect it."

Via noyoureoutoforder.tumblr.com

Ugh: Bitch, I haven't been expecting anything for the last five years and I've still got nothing.

19. "Why don't you just get a real job?"

Via wifflegif.com

Ugh: Believe it or not, this is my real job.

20. "These are the best years of your life."

Via whilelookingforajob.tumblr.com

Ugh: Really? "The best years"? You seriously don't remember being in your twenties, and filled with constant anxiety, frustration, and nerves?

No, no, you're right. They probably are the best years, but I won't know that until I'm out of them, to be fair. (Twentysomethings, unite!)
