99-Year-Old Woman Gets Arrested To Fulfill Bucket List - News That Makes Us Feel Awkward

We here at AFP believe in following your dreams, and today a nearly 100-year-old woman from the Netherlands is giving us inspiration. The Dutch woman, Annie, wanted to get arrested just once in her lifetime, and when she approached the Nijmegen-Zuid police station with her unusual request, they were happy to oblige. She didn’t even need to commit a crime!

When Annie arrived at the station, police promptly slapped on the bracelets:

Citizens who haven’t committed a crime usually aren’t allowed inside the cells, but for Annie, the cops made an exception. She got to sit inside the holding tank for a few minutes, and pose for pictures:

Police posted the photos on their Facebook page, and we all get to partake in Annie’s delight:

You go, Annie! We hope nailing the rest of your bucket list is as fun as this was.

Artist Uses Sticky Notes To Poke Fun At Adult Life - Awkward Galleries

Almost nobody is any good at navigating adulthood, whether it’s paying the bills, using Tinder, or even the simple stuff like not being a complete and utter slob. But writer and illustrator Chaz Hutton can help us all laugh at our failures with his series of satirical sketches, ingeniously drawn on sticky notes–part of the fun is admiring the skill required to get the text and images on such a small space.

Hutton says the wisdom in his drawings is hard-earned. He previously worked as an architect before moving from Melbourne, Australia, to London, in what he says was an attempt to put off life’s responsibilities. If that’s the case, it looks like he’s got things pretty well figured out. After his friends convinced him to post his drawings on Instagram, they promptly went viral and he collected them in a book.

If you struggle with adulting, we encourage you to draw a bath, grab a cupcake, and check out the gallery below.
