20 People Share Things They Can't Believe They Had to Explain to Another Adult

By

We all have gaps in our knowledge. It's reasonable to have blindspots. But some people are severely lacking in inexcusable ways. This AskReddit thread, which asked, "What's something you can't believe you had to explain to another adult?" is truly shocking. Some adults, apparently, are unforgivably dumb when it comes to certain things. If you want to feel better about your own intellect, keep reading because oh boy.

Making change

Camleep had a heck of a time trying to explain how to make change when they were tipped with a $20 bill. "Was tipped a twenty-dollar bill to be split between myself and a coworker," they wrote. "I handed her $10 I had in my pocket and took the $20. She said it wasn't fair that I had $20 and she only had $10." 

They could not successfully explain to her that, since they gave her the $10 they had, they both got the same amount of money out of that $20 bill. She gave him the $10 back, took the $20 to the register, and exchanged it for two $10 bills to distribute them. She never got it.
