50 Things That Supposedly Make You An Adult

A British Insurance company chatted with 2000 "adults" and asked about what exactly qualifies you as an adult! Last night I went to bday dinner 1 with one of my besties and her 3 old (my little bestie).  She didn't get carded, but I did! I'm older by about 6 months... and I'd say I look older. However, she got carded I believe because she had a small child with her. In my mind you're an adult when you're responsible for another human. 

According to the list these are the 50 things that make you an adult. How many do you check off? 33 out of 50 for me... I ask what's a "crockery" set. This was a list created by Brits remember.
