The Top Signs You’re Officially an Adult

How old were you when you finally felt like a real adult?  A new survey asked 2,000 people.  And the average answer was 26 for men, and 23 for women.  (Wow, that young?  I know a few 40-year-olds who haven’t hit adulthood yet.)  It also asked people to name the top SIGNS you’re an adult.
