If the answer to any of the above is yes, then congratulations, you have earned the right to call yourself a fully-fledged adult.

But if these kinds of tasks seem beyond you, it could be worth enrolling in one of the new “adulating” classes on offer through Bark.com.

Classes start at £50 per day and will cover a range of skills, including:
