People in their twenties still refer to people older than them as “adults”. When do you think they stop… and realize… they are adults

I’m not an adult, I’m a child with a drinking permit.

Never. I’m 50 and at least once a month, I find myself talking to a government official or law enforcement agent and I catch myself thinking “Isn’t this the kind of thing a grown up should be dealing with instead of us?” I forget I’m not 17 anymore until I look in a mirror and wonder what that old guy is doing in my bathroom.
