As children, we received countless warnings from parents and other adults concerning disastrous behaviors that should be avoided at all costs. From comical exaggerations to outright lies, here are some relatable tweets about the things adults conditioned us to worry about…
☞ “I can’t believe adults warned us about the dangers of quicksand and completely ignored telling us about how stressful it is paying rent”
☞ “I am 32 years old and still deeply terrified that consuming anything from the hotel room minibar will bankrupt my entire family somehow”
☞ “why did my mom make me think it was illegal to turn a light on in the car while we were driving throughout my whole childhood”
☞ “Did anyone else’s parents tell them that if you sit too close to the TV you’ll go blind?”
☞ “Growing up I thought I’d be getting sprayed by a lot more skunks by the way adults warned us about them.”
☞ “Did your parents tell you the black seeds in watermelon would grow a watermelon in your stomach too or are you normal?”
☞ “did your parents tell you that you’d get a cold if you went to sleep with your hair wet or are you normal?”
☞ “Was anybody else raised to believe that if you take a shower during a thunderstorm, you’ll probably die via lightning strike?”
☞ “Did anybody else’s parents every tell them not to swim after eating because of cramps?? Did you know that’s false? Did you know we were raised by liars!?!?”
☞ “Remember when we were kids they used to talk about our “permanent record” LMFAO I was TERRIFIED”

Have EVER encountered quicksand????
