Being a teacher is no easy job. While everyone gets to move on as they age, teachers are stuck in a dual existence. Children progress from one grade to another, but teachers have to understand their view of life and proceed. Mr. Frakes, a middle school teacher—who goes by @7thgradechronicles on TikTok—understands this predicament first-hand and posts content on bizarre and beautiful opinions his students hold that keep him on his toes. Recently, he asked his students' esteemed opinion on the proper gifts to give someone in their 30s during the holidays. It is safe to say that the hilarious answers pulled the floor from underneath him.

The teacher captioned the video with, "It's me. I'm 30s." It is a play on Taylor Swift's famous lyrics, "I am the problem. It's me." Even though the suggestions seem unhinged, ultimately, it is because the 30s are unhinged. The video began with the text overlay, "I asked my students: What do you buy someone in their 30s for the holidays." The first suggestion to appear was "Measuring Cups." It is the age to intake everything in a measured quantity, from sugar to medicine, so quite apt. The next one was "Signs that say, 'Bless the home.'" This age just inspires a deeper connection with god and what better than a gift in his name?

The third suggestion was "A Dyson vacuum." One of the biggest pursuits as an adult is to keep one's house clean. A Dyson Vaccum goes a big way in keeping the house in order. The next one really pushes the envelope with, "A bottle of wine and hip implants." Well, muscles and bones do get a bit weak at this age, but no need to point it out. The next slip suggested "Panera Bread," "Gift card," and "People in their 30s love their soup." Well, who doesn't like a little bit of luxury and warmth when it comes to food?

The children also mentioned "Bingo Cards." This game of luck is a favorite of all ages. Another one got a recommendation right from his home stating, "You give them Bath and Body Works stuff." Nothing is better to soothe one's soul after a hard day's work than a warm bath. The mother has great taste. The next one was culinary-based, asking for better-quality meat. "Hard Candy" and "Candy Crush Premium" also made an appearance. One is for taste buds and the other is for passing time. One of the suggestions went the nostalgia route, asking to gift candles that smelled like "home" or "back then."

"T.J. Maxx gift cards and wrinkle creams" also found a place on this esteemed list. The last few were direct attacks from warm blankets for hurt muscles to coffee mugs for obsessed millennials. No toxic habit was safe from these children's eyes. It was not just all mocking some also gave solid advice. One suggestion asked people to get a good divorce lawyer and "fight for the kids."

The comment section was in splits, seeing the suggestions. @loquaciouslo was a fan of all of them and wrote, "Honestly, mostly solid suggestions." @ceterrac was shocked at how on point all of them were and commented, "But are they wrong? Because I honestly love soup and candles. I'm 36."
