Well, I guess not everyone can be Einstein, right?
You know that’s the truth!
And the mom you’re about to hear from seems pretty fed up about how she has to deal with her ADULT children…
Is she going too far?
Read her story below and let us know what you think!
AITA for labeling all the bottles in the house because my adult children are idiots?
“I have two of my children living with me. One has graduated from college and the other is a junior.
I have to purchase medicated shampoo because of a scalp condition. It is by prescription and it is expensive. it also comes in packaging that is meant to be stored upright.
Not on its side and definitely not upside down.
My daughter has her hair products in the shower and I do not touch them. My son also keeps his AXE body wash/shampoo/conditioner/woman repellent in the shower. I also do not touch it since I have zero desire to smell like a high school locker room.
I keep my shampoo in there as well since it is my house and I can keep my s**t wherever I want.
For some reason the two of them cannot understand that not all packaging is meant to be upside down. They have already wasted an entire bottle of my shampoo by storing it upside down after they touched it for some reason. It all dripped out the spout which is not engineered for that.
I talked to both of them and I explained that they should not touch my stuff and that if they accidentally tip over my shampoo it was meant to be stored with the lid at the top.
I came home last week to find my shampoo leaking out of the bottle again. UPSIDE DOWN.
I ordered 500 stickers that say “this side up” with an arrow pointing upwards when the words are upright and I put them on everything in the house that might leak. with my shampoo being literally covered in them.
They had friends over last weekend and they noticed that the relish, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, etc. were all labeled.
My kids were embarrassed when they explained why. They think I am an asshole for putting labels on everything since they only f**k with my shampoo. Since it is $80 a bottle I said I would take off all the labels if they agree to pay for my shampoo. Thus far they have declined.”
And here’s what Reddit users had to say about this.

Another individual also said she’s NTA and they applaud her work.
And this Reddit user said she’s NTA and that she can relate to this mom.
