People Who Did Not Understand The Assignment

When you're a kid, you view the world with childlike innocence. You aren't trained to question quite yet and take everything for face value.

Which can lead to some pretty hilarious situations. Have a look below at these tweets that show how hilarious children are when it comes to misunderstanding simple concepts.

This Twitter user had to call 9-1-1 after her mother collapsed.

"She was admitted, then was sent home with a clean bill of health, a few days later I called 911 to tell them she was doing much better, in case they wanted to know." - Twitter u/@mariannerenoirs

Where does money come from?

This is a perfect example of why parents need to be more transparent with their children when it comes to matters of personal finance.

The first time that a young adult hears the term "mortgage" shouldn't be on the day that they happen to be applying for one.

What's really driving the car?

This actually sounds like the next update Elon Musk will make to the new Tesla models.

We already have self-driving cars, it's not too far-fetched to think that one day we may be able to communicate with our vehicles through enhanced AI.

Laugh loudly so the folks at home can hear you!

"Before I knew what a live studio audience was, I thought that the people you hear laughing while watching TV were people in their houses," explained Twitter user @Basie_Skanks. "I would sit very close to the TV and laugh ignorantly loud so they could hear me too."

Taking the term expiration date to another level.

This is the most heartwarming thing I've read in a very long time.

You can even understand how their logic might have formed around the idea, especially if they understood expiration dates as they pertained to food.

Why do they call it a shot?

"When I was 6, my parents told me I had a doctor appointment so I would leave early from school to get a shot and I thought it meant that I was going to the doctor to literally get shot." - Twitter u/@katie__childs

Later, when?

By the sounds of it, this kid must have had a pretty disappointing childhood.

Hopefully, it didn't take them too long to catch on to the fact that "later" was just another way of saying goodbye. Otherwise, that'd be really sad.

That *Dora The Explorer* sure is chatty.

"I used to get mad when Dora asks “what was your favorite part?” Cause I’d go “umm, I like the part with-“ and she’d cut me off to go “I like that part too.” I used to be like I helped this girl out and she won’t even let me get a word in." - Twitter u/@izzysaks

This is why you shouldn't use slang around children.

I guess it's a good thing that this Twitter user never overheard someone use the phrase "explosive diarrhea."

I know that was a disgusting joke, but sometimes you can't help but pick the low-hanging fruit.

Contrary to what you might have thought — humans can't give birth to rats.

"Lmao when I was younger I remember someone telling me that if a rat bit you, you’ll get rabies," wrote Twitter user @joaruhi. "My dumbass thought that meant you would give birth to rat babies."

That's one way to ruin your eyesight.

I mean, I applaud the effort — even in the sheer defiance of logic.

I'm just at a loss as to how or why this Twitter user thought that this was the best way to go around it. I would have started with eating carrots.

Imagine the outrage.

"when[sic] i[sic] was like 5 or 6 i[sic] saw my parents[sic] wedding tape and PISSED i[sic] wasnt[sic] invited! Telling my dad i[sic] am ur son, ur first born[sic] son and u[sic] had my cousins there and not me! Thinking they just left me at home and got married, when i[sic] really wasnt[sic] born yet lol!" - Twitter u/@stkarlito

No, a watermelon won't grow inside you.

I swear that there's an old episode of Rugrats wherein this precise thing happens!

Chuckie swallows a watermelon seed and then Tommy, Phil, and Lil have to shrink down to microscopic size and travel through his body in order to snip it out!

Why is mom rolling around on the floor?

"It was a Tuesday around 7pm[sic] and I saw my mom crying & screaming on the kitchen floor," said Twitter user @GloomyFrench. "I thought she had messed up the meal & was being dramatic about it. TURNS OUT: she was in labor."

Not getting daycare.

"Went to a building with lots of kids, I start playing & then I saw my mom speed walking out the building. I started bawling thinking I was being abandoned. It was day care[sic]." - Twitter u/@Her0fCanada
