At WTF Notebooks UK, we pride ourselves on offering the perfect, relatable gift ideas for adults. In fact, our title “My hopeless attempts at adulting” has long been a fan favourite.

So, it’s only fitting that we dive into the world of X (formerly Twitter) to uncover some hilariously relatable tweets (or X’s?) that encapsulate the joys and struggles of adulthood.

Get ready to laugh, nod in agreement, and perhaps even shed a tear of recognition as we share these gems that perfectly capture the essence of grown-up life.
