People In Their 30s Share Sad Realities Of Being Their Age

Time is a funny thing; one minute it's 1995 and you're rocking big velvet scrunchies and listening to The Spice Girls and the next minute you're getting annoyed at teenagers who play their music too loud on the bus. Welcome to your 30s, where the 90s are over 20 years old. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?! It seems like it's not just us; a Twitter thread asking people in their 30s to reveal unexpected things about being their age has revealed that old age has apparently come early. Welcome to the age where people half your age are dressing the way you did 30 years ago, only now it's vintage.

Savage Responses For Girl's Tweet About Dress Ordered Online

Like everything, online shopping has its positives and its negatives. On the one hand, it saves you from trawling the shops, allowing you to order from the comfort of your own bed to be delivered the next day. On the other hand, you never really know what you're going to receive in the post, given how most companies heavily photoshop the model wearing the clothing you have ordered. One girl was in for a nasty shock when the skin-tight pink latex dress she ordered looked NOTHING like the picture shown on the website. But when she tweeted a picture of herself in it side by side with the image that was advertised. she was in for a nasty shock, receiving some pretty savage reponses. Check them out below!

20 Expectations Vs Reality And Other Times The World Cheated People

We're big fans of expectations losing to reality. It just captures the spirit of a good old fashioned fail. Sometimes good intentions aren't enough to get the job done. You might set out to bake that perfect birthday cake, and end up with a sloppy monstrous looking creation that looks nothing like the picture on the box. Or maybe you got faked out by a deceptive promo from a fast food place that serves up hideous burgers that look absolutely nothing like what originally ignited your appetite.
