I've learned a lot from Adventure Time.
User avatar #80 - Sinless (01/14/2014) [-]
Practical stuff like banking, paying bills, insurance, etc, can all be learned with a quick Google search. There's articles everywhere. Beneficial to read, even if you already have a grasp on the topic, since there's always a good tip you haven't heard of.

For the social stuff: not being an ******* at parties, date etiquette, etc, I like to watch Guy Code on VH1. I think it's funny, and I actually picked up a lot of great tips from it.

If you need to be taught those things i think you shouldn't leave the house anyway.

Its called ******* GUY CODE.
User avatar #71 - RKOViper (01/14/2014) [-]
Do people on here not watch TV? It's not exactly what you explained but "Guy Code" is literally a show made to tell guys what to do and how to behave in various situations.

This would be helpful as 						****					. All i learned in school was how to take tests, now i'm 18 and no idea how to:   
   
-send a package   
-set up a bank account   
-apply for a debit/credit card   
-balance a checkbook   
-pay mortgage   
-manage finances   
   
   
Why did no one teach us the practical things?

User avatar #78 to #58 - iRetaliate (01/14/2014) [-]
Because all of those things are simple to do.

Jesus Christ, do you need to be spoonfed everything?
User avatar #79 to #78 - lulzdealer (01/14/2014) [-]
Do you realize that everything you ever learned was because someone taught it to you? There is literally no mention of any of this **** at all ever.
User avatar #81 to #79 - iRetaliate (01/14/2014) [-]
Or you learn by trying things and realize that they're pretty simple.
User avatar #76 to #58 - bodox (01/14/2014) [-]
to send a package, you can
1- go to the post office with said pakage and they will take you step by step thought the process
2- pay UPS to pick it up from your place and they will ship it
to set up a back account
walk into a bank and they will do it for you
to apply for a credit card
walk into a bank and tell them you want to apply for a credit card (debit cards are free with a bank account)
to pay mortgage ( rent most likely )
you will have to talk with your leasing manager about weather you want it directily withdrawn from your bank account or if you want to write them a check every month
to balance a checkbook
well you don't people stoped doing that in the 90's now banks do it for you with online banking
to manage finances
well that's all you no one can tell you how to spend your own money

if it sound like im trying to be a smart ass, well im not all this is really that easy

I took a career's class in Grade 10, taught me how to make a resume, and that was about it.

>How not to be an ass hole at parties
GO TO A ******* PARTY.

This is how you talk to people. A very simple flowchart.

Step 1: Say something.
Did it have positive feedback? Good you're on the right track.
Did it have negative feedback? OK, you learned from your mistake. Don't do it again.

It's the same ******* way you learn to play your video games.
#39 to #35 - dontknowmeatall (01/14/2014) [-]
When I get stuck, where do I download the walk-through?
#42 to #39 - fractalius (01/14/2014) [-]
>531+1483
>still downloading walkthroughs of a video game

Seriously? You can't even get through a video game without help?
#41 to #39 - fractalius (01/14/2014) [-]
Seriously the only reason you bitches can't talk to people is because you're choosing not to.

I used to be the same way, then I went out and actually TRIED TALKING TO PEOPLE

AND GUESS WHAT? After weeks of trying, I GOT BETTER (Who would have thought?) and LEARNED to TALK to people.

I know it's really hard to grasp the concept that when you practice something you get better at it, but it really is true.
#45 to #41 - dontknowmeatall (01/14/2014) [-]
Weeks? I've been trying for years and I still don't manage it. All my friends think I'm weird, even the weirdest of them. I try all the time and see little progress, and sometimes I make huge, relationship-destroying mistakes and I don't even know how or why. My closest friends guide me sometimes, but when they're not around I'm a potato. I tend to say things that make people awkward and I rarely understand when I do. And I'm sure I'm not alone in this one.
#49 to #45 - fractalius (01/14/2014) [-]
The trick is to think about what you're saying from the other point of view.

Instead of trying to think "When this, say this" (Which won't work because there are billions of social scenarios), think of "WHY this, WHY that"

When that kid made that joke about his dead mom? Why did that make you uncomfortable? When that man gave the speech that rallied the entire school, what did he do? He kept staring straight ahead, but WHY?

When you learn WHY you say things, not just WHAT to say you begin to get better at conversations happening in the moment.

A good tip I got was invitations and inspirations (read this You need to login to view this link you'll get a better understanding of conversation flow, and coupled with practice you'll improve)


#69 to #49 - odytoboman (01/14/2014) [-]
Wait... So you argue that no one needs a guide to social situations, even claiming you got better by yourself, then tell someone you picked up tips from a WEBSITE THAT IS CLEARLY A GUIDE TO SOCIAL SITUATIONS.

#84 to #69 - fractalius (01/14/2014) [-]
On top of that, I also said that "coupled with practice, you'll improve"

Making friends isn't something you learn how to do in a book. Nor is playing baseball. But in books you can get pointers that'll improve your baseball game, when obviously practicing is how to get good
#83 to #69 - fractalius (01/14/2014) [-]
I said it was a good tip I got. I asked my brother for advice when I was younger.

I obviously can't replicate his entire conversation with me so I figured googling "invitations and inspirations social skill" would find me something. It found me that

Watch adventure time. Teaches things like not to make out with people in public because it's rude, nor not to get too attached to things. It's a "kids' show," but it's really targeted at teens.

I always wished there was a class you could take that taught you about loans, job stuff, insurance, and other practical life stuff.
User avatar #38 to #10 - Crusader (01/14/2014) [-]
If you don't know how a loan works, then you are missing some basic stuff
"Job Stuff" is pretty generic, what job stuff don't you understand
Insurance is just like loans, actually it's based off the same principle as loans, and would be explained by the agent you are talking to. I sell insurance, so if you had any actual questions, you could ask me

People often complain "Oh no, school never taught me this, School should teach you this" when really, it's stuff that you can learn by doing this thing called asking or research which is really easy to do, and often people complaining about this sort of thing just want the information given to them.

My school had something like that, if I remember correctly, called Practical Art.

We had that, but we didn't learn **** .

I still barely know what to do in real life
#14 to #10 - lolfire (01/13/2014) [-]
We had a class where they taught us not to hurt protestants....

It was called citizenship.....
User avatar #11 to #10 - kanatana (01/13/2014) [-]
I had a class like that in high school. I passed the Resume and Interviewing courses with flying colors, did okay in Checkbook Balancing, Budgeting, and Finance, but I totally bombed everything Post Office related.

I swear, I'm not making this **** up.
User avatar #12 to #11 - thecole (01/13/2014) [-]
I need a class like that. I did take one similar in 7th grade but who needs to know that stuff at that age only to forget it when you really need it?
User avatar #16 to #12 - valyn (01/14/2014) [-]
most american high schools and colleges have something along those lines
