When we are kids, we tend to imagine that adult life is full of miracles and wonders. This is true except for some small, annoying nuances (and maybe some big, serious ones) that none of us were ready to face. A Reddit thread where people started to discuss unexpected issues they encountered in real life, suddenly uncovered that many of us are actually bothered by the same things.
We at Bright Side couldn’t stop reading this thread while swinging between laughing and crying. We’d like for you to read it too, just so you can realize that we all are annoyed by the fact that our homes get dirty so fast.
