The Oatmeal lays out a more useful curriculum for high school seniors with its ‘What we SHOULD have been Taught in Our Senior Year of High School’ infographic. Did you ever feel adrift after walking across that auditorium stage? Do you feel that the school system left you ill-prepared for the harsh realities of the world?  Do you wish somebody had taught you how to load the dishwasher properly? If you answered yes to all three of these questions, congratulations, you’re normal.

Successfully poking fun at the lackluster school system and a slew of disinterested and jaded high school teachers, the Oatmeal taps into a generation of disillusioned young adults who are in the midst of learning life’s more useful skills the hard way. While this infographic may bring up some awkward high school memories, at least it provides sweet validation for all your school-related woes.
