When individuals are young, they typically receive education from various sources, including their parents, the community, and the school system. However, certain individuals, regardless of whether they had access to education or not, may exhibit behaviors that indicate they may have been poorly educated. Users recently shared in an online forum things people do that make it seem they were poorly educated. Here are some of the most popular responses.

1. Shades of Grey
