Should a 19-year-old know how to properly clean a refrigerator, wash dishes, or clean the toilet?

I'm just curious.

  • of course, that stuff is elementary.
    GRANTED< if he/shee was never TAUGHT, then they might do a poor job (the way you'd expect a 6 year old to)
    but once showed the proper way (as with any job training) they are perfectly capable of a FINE job.

  • Um, yes? Good lord I could do all those things by the time I was 10, at the latest, possibly earlier. At 19 a person is an adult and should be prepared to leave the nest and take care of him or herself, and that includes doing all those things.

  • Yes it comes with being an adult, a responsible person. Is the issue that they don't know how- or they're just too lazy?
