A kid playing Monopoly with his family got a dose of what being an adult is all about; his reaction to paying taxes is precisely how we feel.


Global – Let’s get real for a moment; being an adult is pretty great! We control our lives, decide when we go to bed, can leave our dishes out if we feel like it and can watch any movies we like. BUT being an adult also means we have way more responsibility.

We are paying bills, fixing problems, taking care of others and taxes! We all understand the importance of taxes, but life would be so much easier if we could keep all the money we worked so hard for.

Well, a kid learned a very real-life lesson about taxes recently while playing Monopoly with his family, and his reaction is literally every single adult when that payslip lands on your desk.

Being adults though, we can’t sit and cry about it; we just have to keep going however much we would like to sit on the lounge floor and cry our hearts out.

That is why so many adults are connecting with this poor kid and his reaction to having to pay taxes. We feel you, man, we totally feel you!
