Here's What A Maltese 'How-To-Be-An-Adult' Class Would Look Like

Handyman haggling will be on the curriculum

A newly launched Adulting School in Maine, Portland, USA has introduced a series of life-hacking classes that teach young adults how to manage with everyday scenarios that they would have otherwise left to their parents. So basically – anything you would pick up the phone to call your parents to ask them about has been converted into a tutorial.

It's an interesting premise, and since it's only been open since July 2016, we have yet to see how successful it will be. But, if it does spread to Malta, we're pretty sure they'd have to tweak the curriculum a bit.

Here's what we think the Adulting School of Malta should cover in it's lesson-plan.

1. How to actually leave your parents' house

Chapter One: No, you don't have to wait till you're married

Chapter Two: Make sure to tut and roll your eyes when your plumber gives you a quote – and remember to channel "ma tarax" vibes for at least 15 minutes.
