Things Adults Should Know About Themselves
Hello, my name is Chelsea and I am adult (sort of). Many of my friends and family members know much more about themselves than I do. This leads me to believe I don't know myself at all.
What is that moment where you realize you really don't know yourself at all? I've noticed most adults know certain details about themselves. I am not one of those adults.
I mean, I know my own social security number because you can't sign up for a liquor store club card with out it. (No you don't need to give Buy Rite your social).
I also know my debit card number. In reality that is more depressing than impressive. This is just the sad result of my online shopping addiction.
However, there are certain things I've come to realize I should know about myself.
Bank Account Number
The fact that I know my debit card number, CSC/CVV number, and expiration date, but do not know my account number makes me concerned. Anytime I go to a bank I have to give them my debit card or social security number because I can't write my account number on the slip. Now that I think of it I can't remember the last time I went up to a teller at a bank with mobile and ATM deposits being a thing.
I was about to write "License Plate Number" then I realized how wrong that is on account of letters being involved. I know they still refer to it as a license plate number. Anyway, I know my plate starts with the letter "X" other than that I'm lost...
This is what inspired this post. There is a flyer up at the studio about a blood drive, which made me think about how I don't know my blood type. My next thought was I want to donate because it is a good thing to do, but also so I can find out my blood type.
This is what happens when you buy the majority of your clothing in the Juniors' section at Target. What is my dress size number for actual adult clothes? I have not a clue.
Driver's License Number
Again, here we go with calling something a number when letters are involved. Like my license plate I know what letter it starts with, but that's about it.
My Last Dentist Appointment
I really need to go to the dentist, it has been way too long. Not because I am afraid of the dentist. In fact I LOVE the dentist. I am just TERRIBLE at making doctors' appointments. I guess #6 could be all doctors' appointments, not limited to dentist.
With all of the commercials about getting your credit score for free, harping on the fact of how important it is to know, you would think most adults would know their's. Nope. Honestly, I don't want to know. I don't want to cry myself to sleep every night.
Students loans and credit cards...nope I don't want to know. Just like credit score, I don't want to cry myself to sleep every night.
Last Oil Change
I took the sticker off of my windshield because I felt like it was judging me for not going.
