Apparently common sense isn’t so common.

If we know something about life, it’s that you never stop learning. We’ve all made mistakes and had our “dumb blonde” moments, but these moments are what make us human. They give us lessons to learn and moments to laugh at. Every so often, however, you come across a person that has misconstrued or misunderstood something that is so far gone, it’s hard to believe they made it to adulthood. Some users on Reddit started a thread of stories about “the most simple thing you’ve ever had to explain to a fully competent adult” and we compiled our favorite ones in this gallery!
