2023.06.04 09:25 throwrabumblemouse i (19f) am lost in my ldr “relationship” (22m) not sure how to continue..
we met in the depths of the web, he is in a neighboring country, but FAR, opposite sides. we have been talking for 1.5 yrs. we were both getting out of relationships and comforting each other through that when we began talking, comfort evolved to sexting and pet names. we’ve built a good bond, he is my best friend and i think i’m his as well. emphasis on the i think. ive embarrassingly poured my heart to him many times, temper tantrums to try to get something out of him, but no confirmation whatsoever on how he really feels about me or where this will go. my heart hurts for how much time i’ve spent and tears i’ve cried over someone i have 4 pictures of. he dangles little donuts on a stick sometimes, of marriage, children, a future. we don’t have direct and normal communication habits, largely to his doing. its almost telepathy at this point. i fear i’m filling the time for him, and in normalcy my justified insecurities would be comforted, but in this twilight zone i’m fighting myself constantly. i feel so distant sometimes because i don’t know what this is really for. in addition i am black and he is euro mix, once told me how his dad had a black gf when he was dating around. the closest i get to honesty and affection other than pet names are during our sexual conversations, making me fearful after we meet and that is off his checklist i’ll be dumped. his plausible deniability is strong, when i used to ask about our status he’d say we are friends, i tell him i may not be able to handle friendship like this, and we return to sexual-romantic limbo is this an emotionally unavailable man, who might be waiting for us to meet in person to admit his true feelings? i’m left to believe im an interim/imaginary gf, or this is a test of my patience and willpower, and once it’s earned i’ll get my girlfriend title and an i love you. he has recently mentioned an all paid for trip for us. how long is too long of dealing with this? am i being absolutely and completely played? i’ve ditched a lot of other relationship ventures because of my holding out for him. for people who also enjoy the chase and yearning and are attracted to emotionally unavailable men, is this worth my pain? do i need this pain to feel like i’ve accomplished love? i’m seeking general and all advice on this, similar situations and how it turned out, i’ve never asked for help on this. much appreciated TL;DR: 1.5 yr LDR relationship with no title but full relationship occurrences, hints of a future together but never any confirmation, “just friends,” am i wasting my youth staring at my screen 24/7 for this guy?

2023.06.04 09:24 Ok-Bake3321 I think my mom has histrionic personality disorder- what should I do?
I (30F) have been doing a lot of self discovery recently in trying to heal from past traumas, after years of having cPTSD, ADHD, anxiety/depression, and most recently being diagnosed with borderline. In the process, I’ve been thinking a lot about my mother who I’ve always had a complicated relationship with, and I’ve always suspected had some kind of mental illness herself but could never quite put my finger on it.
She’s always been a little “off”- I always just thought it was her quirky, eccentric personality and a ton of PTSD and anxiety from dealing with my narcissistic, alcoholic father but after tons of research I highly
suggest she has HPD. It all makes so much sense now.
- She has an extremely animated, exaggerated and dramatic personality- she’s very lively, happy-go-lucky, loud, talks incessantly and never shuts the fuck up. She has an ability to say a lot of things, repeating on and on in many different ways for a long time without really saying much at all. I don’t think I’ve ever been in her presence for more than 30 seconds where she didn’t audibly make some kind of sound. Even her yawns are loud and exaggerated. She’s like a live wire, always on unless she’s asleep. It’s very annoying, and it’s honestly embarrassing for me most of the time to be out in public with her. She makes her presence known wherever she is. She just completely drains me of all my energy.
- She is by far the most sensitive person I’ve ever met. I’m sensitive, but nowhere near this extent. My entire life I have had to walk on eggshells with her, with the fear of saying something to offend or upset her. She takes offense to literally anything that doesn’t absolutely sing her praises, to the point of delusion. Example: years ago I was sitting in a recliner and I wanted to lift up the feet and recline back. My mother was standing behind me. As I reached down to pull the lever, I said to her “ooh watch out!” So that I didn’t hit her with the recliner! Instead of reacting like any normal person would and just moving out of the way and carrying on, she took offense to what I said, and scoffed at me and muttered under her breath “ha yeah, watch out.” And stormed out of the room. If I go to apologize to her or explain that I wasn’t trying to offend her, she flat out denies anything even happened, she won’t even look at me and if I continue to press the issue she will throw a tantrum out of frustration and storm away from me again. There are countless other examples just like this, that have been happening all my life. She is extremely exhausting to be around.
Adding to the above, is the fact that we have an extremely shallow relationship, and she is never able to talk about serious issues or emotions, unless it’s to complain about my father. She cannot handle any type of criticism whatsoever, otherwise she will manipulate the entire situation around to make her the victim, and cry that she’s just such a horrible mother. Example: I told her back in high school that I wanted to do my own laundry, and she didn’t have to keep coming in my room in the morning to wash my clothes for me. Of course she took offense to that, as if I just didn’t like the way SHE did my laundry- and her response was “FINE! I’ll never do it again!” And stormed away from me, again. She’s said that exact line about countless other things in my life.
She has no boundaries, and has never respected mine. She’s extremely enabling, controlling and spoiled me to the point where I was afraid to do things myself with the fear that she would take it personally as if the way she was doing it was wrong. I never had to do any chores. I’ve always said she just loves to do “mom things” but found it odd the way she lets everyone walk all over her, as if she wants it and desperately wants to be needed. For being so loud and uptight, she is extremely submissive.
She dresses very provocatively and suggestively for someone her age. 90% of the time, she’s wearing a crop top or exposing part of her stomach. Skin tight leggings, fake leather, full length tight body suits. She looks incredible don’t get me wrong, but the way she dresses has always made me uncomfortable. She’s very petite, and when I was in elementary school we were the same size and I remember she would rave about how cool it is that we got to share clothes. When I was in 4th grade.
She definitely thinks her relationships with other people are closer than they actually are. She doesn’t have many close friends, and there are even some family members that I think purposely leave her out of things and she will either make excuses for them, or just complain to me about it, yet do nothing.
And finally, just because it’s worth mentioning, but she was also physically abusive to me and my little sister (but not my brother) when we were young children. It’s not a possibility to even bring this up with her because she will flat out deny it ever happened. Part of me also doesn’t want her to remember, because I know how she is and how it would ruin her to think she was a horrible mother. But it’s been a very tough realization for me lately to remember that she was actually worse than I thought she is. I don’t understand why she is the way she is, she grew up in a loving home and both of her siblings act nothing like her.
The thing is, I absolutely love my mom. I need her in my life, despite how toxic and exhausting she is. So my questions are does this sound like HPD or more like narcissism? Maybe both? How should I navigate this relationship going forward while still trying to have a relationship with her? TIA if you made it this far

2023.06.04 09:24 etherealdisposition Is it fun/safe to attend festivals alone?
I (21F) recently purchased a presale ticket to camp flog gnaw without any thought because of how badly ive always wanted to go to this festival. That being said I didnt really wait to see if anyone I knew was going in fear of the event being sold out and now that it is sold out im pretty sure no one i know is going. I still want to go but the idea of going alone is kinda nerve wracking and the event is about 1.5 hours away from my house. Ive only been to two other festivals before and i enjoyed them heavily but not sure if i will enjoy this one the same way if im alone. Im the kinda person who enjoys sharing experiences with people and thrives off group settings. Im debating selling the ticket later on if i cant find anyone to go with or just saying f it and going alone, but if i go alone is there any tips from people who go alone frequently? Any thoughts appreciated, thanks!

I’m actually confused about how this would come to happen? Me having far more points in the weekly but then her having far more badges?
2023.06.04 09:24 VSOP-TO Help - 4 month sleep regression
I believe I’ve been in the dreaded 4 month sleep regression for a couple of weeks now. It started off with him having bad naps for a week, then bad naps and a couple of sleeps where he would wake up every 2 hours. Now I’m in this stage where he sleeps around 9/10pm and wakes up around 1am lifting his legs and banging them. He then continues to do this the rest of the night.
We’ve started to implement a night routine where we give him a full feed and bring him up to his bassinet (around 8/9pm) and read to him until he falls asleep around . This is also usually a battle - some nights he goes to bed right away, some nights he fights it for an hour or two. After he falls asleep he seems to always wake up at 1am and bangs his legs. The thing is he doesn’t seem awake, his eyes are usually closed. This is when I give him his pacifier again and he’ll go back to sleep for another 30-60 mins. Then usually around 2/3am we wake up for a feed. I’ll then put him back to bed and 30 minutes later he’s banging his feet again every 30-60 minutes until 6-7am.
My question is, whyyyy? Haha, no but is there anything I can do? I feel like I’m awake all night giving him his pacifier until it’s time to hand him off to my husband around 6/7am. I forgot to mention that he’ll be 4 months in about 10 days. I heard that it’s too early to sleep train so I’m not really sure what I can do to help. Im currently breastfeeding and pumping so my husband is able to help out with bottle feedings.
Not sure if his nap schedule is relevant but he takes about ~3 naps a day. First nap is about 3 hours long, second nap is 1-2 hours and third nap usually only lasts 30 minutes.
Any advice would be much appreciated!

2023.06.04 09:24 david8840 Best US bank which is friendly for digital nomads?
Recently my debit card was frozen due to the bank suspecting there may be unauthorised activity on it. So I logged in to online banking and carefully reviewed each transaction in the last several days. They were all fine so I proceeded to call the bank and inform them that they can go ahead and unblock the card since I recognize all of the transactions.
To authenticate me as the real account holder they asked for my account number, social security number, and the 3 digit code on the back of my debit card. No problem, I gave them all of this info. But that wasn't good enough, they also demanded to send me a one-time authorization code to my phone. This had been an issue for me in the past since they only accept US based non-VOIP phone numbers. But this time I was prepared. Three weeks prior I had purchased a US prepaid SIM card, activated it, and added it to my bank account as the primary number.
They asked me to confirm the phone number on the account for them to send the code to. So I read them the phone number. But they then said that they can't use that phone number!
They then offered to send the code by email instead. I read them my email address which is the primary email address on the account for over 5 years, and the very same email address which they sent the notice to about the card being blocked. But no, they said they can't use that email address and they can only use the old email address I used when opening the account over a decade ago. I told them that the old email no longer exists. They then informed me that they have no more options for verifying my identity and I must come into a branch with 2 forms of ID.
I'm not going to pay $1,300 and fly 14,000 kilometers round trip to go to a branch of the bank. I'm done. This was the last straw. I'm switching banks.
I already have a European based bank account which I use for everyday expenses. But I have several expenses each month which require ACH payments and therefore only can be paid from a US account.
Which is the best bank for digital nomads and expats? I am currently considering Charles Schwab and SDFCU (State Department Federal Credit Union) which apparently has some partnership with American Citizens Abroad and doesn't require a US address to open an account. Is there a better option?

2023.06.04 09:23 Adventurous_Goose852 The Bible uses the words “Look” and “Yes” so much.
Anyone else noticed this? I started seeing it in Genesis and it’s everywhere. Is this a translation error? Or is it just a word they liked using a lot?
“Gather together—yes, gather together, you shameless nation.” Zephaniah 2:1 NLT
“King Solomon answered his mother, “Why do you request Abishag the Shunammite for Adonijah? You might as well request the kingdom for him—after all, he is my older brother—yes, for him and for Abiathar the priest and Joab son of Zeruiah!”” 1 Kings 2:22 NIV
“One of his officers answered, “Have some men take five of the horses that are left in the city. Their plight will be like that of all the Israelites left here—yes, they will only be like all these Israelites who are doomed. So let us send them to find out what happened.”” 2 Kings 7:13 NIV
“and for the land of my people, a land overgrown with thorns and briers— yes, mourn for all houses of merriment and for this city of revelry.” Isaiah 32:13 NIV
“and I will cause many people to live on you—yes, all of Israel. The towns will be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt.” Ezekiel 36:10 NIV
“If you do not listen, and if you do not resolve to honor my name,” says the Lord Almighty, “I will send a curse on you, and I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have already cursed them, because you have not resolved to honor me.” Malachi 2:2 NIV
““Truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “today—yes, tonight—before the rooster crows twice you yourself will disown me three times.”” Mark 14:30 NIV
Is it like the scribes making a surprised face like ‘no way that happened!!!’ and then the author is like “yes! yes it did!”
And then there’s “Look,”
““Look,” Naomi said to her, “your sister-in-law has gone back to her people and to her gods. You should do the same.”” Ruth 1:15 NLT
“Look, I have two virgin daughters. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do with them as you wish. But please, leave these men alone, for they are my guests and are under my protection.”” Genesis 19:8 NLT
“she called out to her servants. Soon all the men came running. “Look!” she said. “My husband has brought this Hebrew slave here to make fools of us! He came into my room to rape me, but I screamed.” Genesis 39:14 NLT
“Look, there are many of your people in the land, and you are stopping them from their work.”” Exodus 5:5 NLT
And I guess the look one makes more sense. But they say it a lot! Is it one of their crutch words?

2023.06.04 09:23 Hot_Butterscotch_238 Not getting promoted, even after working hard!
Hi, I'm a frontend developer (UI-1) at a good level unicorn startup in India. I've been working very hard this past year. I've about 2yrs of total experience now and I switched my company last year. In the previous one I worked for about a year and left because of no growth/learning. In the current company I try to give my 100% and even then I get average rating in the performance review. I try to get my work done as fast as possible, help the team, solve on-call issues, easily able to discuss and solve issues with product and designers by myself, follow the best tech practices, learn things on the go and learn them quickly, have contributed to good projects. My peer review is good, but my manager's review is not (I feel like he's grabbing on to the small things or mishaps that happened once maybe because I didn't know how to handle at that time) It doesn't seem logical that everyone in the job market progresses at the same pace, but what should I do in the current scenario? I don't feel very good about it and feel like I'd be left behind in this rat race!

2023.06.04 09:21 personman44 Unetbootin for Linux not properly creating a bootable USB, and I cannot boot with it. Possibly a permissions error?
I'm trying to do this on a Fedora 37 KDE virtual machine. This distro has SELinux implemented, though I'm not sure if it's the cause. PC is Dell XPS 8500
from 2012, and this
is the update I'm trying to do.
I have been following this
video (both doing the same exact thing pretty much) to use UNetbootin
to create a bootable USB to boot into FreeDOS
and update the BIOS of my decade old XPS 8500 PC. For PCs this old, you have to do this. Dell
and the videos show people formatting the USB to FAT32, so I did that too, and then used UNetbootin exactly like they did.
However, there's something that happens in all these videos that isn't happening for me, and it's causing the booting to fail. At 5:12 of this video
and 4:00 of this video
, after they use UNetbootin to create the bootable USB, the USB has a couple of files such as libcom32.c32, libutil.c32, menu.c32, syslinux.cfg, ubninit, and ubnkern. However, my USB only has ubnkern after using UNetbootin, and nothing else.
Also in the videos, when they click OK and let UNetbootin do the operation, they see a progress bar load, and then click exit on an installation complete popup. For me, I see the progress bar at 0% for a split second, and then the popup just disappears and the app closes. I'm wondering if it's a permissions issue. It's pointed out in the first of those 2 videos at this timestamp that UNetbootin doesn't launch properly all the time, so he forces it to launch properly using sudo QT_X11_NO_MITSHM=1 unetbootin.
I had to use that command, because opening UNetbootin the normal way gives this popup titled "Run as root - KDE su"
```The action you requested needs root privileges.Please enter root's password below or click Ignore to continue with your current privileges"
Command: 'bash -c '\"QT_X11_NO_MITSHM=1 /usbin/unetbootin "rootcheck=no'''\'''
Password: [Password Textbox]``
If I type the password, it gives me this error:
```Permission denied. Possibly incorrect password, please try again. On some systems, you need to be in a special group (often: wheel) to use this program
Command: 'bash -c '\"QT_X11_NO_MITSHM=1 /usbin/unetbootin "rootcheck=no'''\''' ```
If I click the ignore button, it gives this error popup titled "Error -KDE su"
```Cannot execute command 'bash -c '\"QT_X11_NO_MITSHM=1 /usbin/unetbootin "rootcheck=no'''\'''
(Not sure if I got the apostrophes/quote symbols right. It doesn't let me copy the messages on any of these popups)
I can't try rufus instead because that's only available on Windows, and I'm on Linux. Any ideas on why this isn't working?

2023.06.04 09:20 monday-afternoon-fun I'm working on a concept of GMO humans that can survive in space to keep biological humans relevant in a spacefaring civilization. Here's an early draft of their set of adaptations. Is there anything I should change, add, or remove?
Here are the adaptations in question. Most of these are focused on allowing them to withstand exposure to hard vacuum without immediately dying. They're not meant to live full-time in space. Their living quarters will be within the pressurized sections of spaceships and space stations. But they do need to be able to venture out into unpressurized sections and perform extravehicular activities with only relatively simple and cheap equipment.
Keep in mind that these GMO humans are designed conservatively. They're meant to be as close to baseline as they can be. This restriction is important.
As such, most adaptations will try to work off of existing aspects of human biology. Others still might be transplanted over from our mammalian relatives.
Seeing as the minimum pressure needed to maintain liquid water at body temperature is only 0.06 ATM, and therefore significantly lower than normal human blood pressure, this is actually not as big of a deal as you might think.
- Adaptations for handling pressure:
The human body is already strong enough not to explode in a vacuum. That said, we can help it along a bit by increasing the natural elastic tension on the skin and connective tissues a little bit and ensuring said elasticity doesn't degrade with age. Basically, we give them the genes for good, strong, and healthy, but otherwise normal skin.
More of a concern is decompression sickness. Being in a pressurized atmosphere and suddenly finding yourself in a vacuum could cause nitrogen bubbles to form in the body. Rapid depressurization may also cause other forms of barotrauma, such as damaged lungs and eardrums.
Diving mammals deal with extreme pressures and decompression all the time, and in fact, they deal with pressure differences far larger than what you'd deal with going from 1 ATM to 0. Whatever adaptations they have would be very useful to implant in spacefaring humans. However, I haven't been able to find out what exactly these adaptations are, so for now, this is a work-in-progress.
If you put meat in a vacuum chamber, it'll begin to dry out quite quickly. This is because water evaporates spontaneously at any temperature in a vacuum. Any water that diffuses towards the surface of the meat will evaporate immediately and be lost. To stop this, you need to coat the meat in a watertight barrier. Fortunately, evolution has already come up with pathways for achieving just that.
- Adaptations for handling desiccation:
Most land creatures possess a thin layer of compacted dead cells, keratin, and oil covering their skin. Mucus membranes, despite being often kept wet by secretions, also possess a water-resistant epithelium of dead cells and keratin.
By thickening and strengthening these, we can ensure water stays trapped in the body in spite of the dehydrating environment of a hard vacuum. Note that both the epidermis in the skin and the epitheliums of mucus membranes are incredibly thin, so a "significant increase" to their thickness would likely hardly be noticeable, except upon close inspection.
The eyes, though, require some special attention. Just as any mucus membrane, their epithelium will be thickened and keratinized further, but just that won't be enough. The eyes also need lubrication, and water won't work for that in a vacuum. Long-chain oils such as lipids, though, are a very promising alternative.
The human eye already produces oily lipid tears through the meibomian glands, but only enough to form a thin film over the eye to reduce the evaporation of watery tears. We would need to increase the production of these lipid tears so that there is a sufficient volume of them to act as a lubricant, which altogether shouldn't be too difficult.
Hypoxia is the main threat when dealing with hard vacuum exposure, so addressing it is a big priority.
- Adaptations for handling lack of oxygen:
We want to reduce the rate at which the body consumes oxygen, which means taking full advantage of the mammalian dive reflex. We also want to increase the ability to hold oxygen in the body, which means having more hemoglobin in the blood and more myoglobin in the muscles. Having a larger spleen and perhaps many accessory spleens may help with the blood issue.
These adaptations I just described are often found - to a limited extent - in exceptionally good human divers, but they’re taken to the extreme is in diving mammals, like cetaceans. Whales can have up to 14 spleens, and the myoglobin proteins in their muscles are slightly modified so that they can be packed in large concentrations without spontaneously coagulating. This, combined with their dive reflex, allows some whale species to go for hours without breathing.
This one is gonna be a bit difficult. There is no mammal that is naturally resistant to radiation, and I can't really think of anything in the human body that, with some creative engineering, could be fashioned into a mechanism for preventing or fixing radiation damage.
- Adaptations for dealing with radiation:
The closest thing to that would be melanin, but that only protects against UV rays. Not to say that melanin wouldn't be helpful, in fact, we would ideally want quite a lot of it in our GMO humans to protect them against the sun's harsh unfiltered UV rays, but it won't cut it for more powerful forms of ionizing radiation.
There is, however, one small rodent mammal that is highly resistant to cancer and aging. I am, of course, talking about the naked mole rat - the only mammal that exhibits negligible senescence. Increased likelihood of cancer and rapid aging are some of the two main dangers of long-term radiation exposure, so bringing whatever anti-cancer and anti-aging mechanisms the naked mole rat possesses over to humans would be very helpful for our purposes of creating GMO astronauts. This is a long shot, but rodents are genetically close to humans, so who knows, that might just work.
Since we're deliberately trying to stay close to baseline humans here, we're unfortunately not going to be able to tap into some of the more optimized body plans for 0G.
- Adaptations for moving about in 0G:
That said, we can strike a very good compromise between our two competing requirements if we make one simple but very important change to the human body plan: bring back, through genetic atavism, our opposable big toe. Doing so gives us a more monkey-like body plan. Monkeys evolved to navigate through the complex three-dimensional environment of a tree canopy and so wouldn't have much trouble navigating ladders and handholds in a 0G environment.
This should be it, for now. Again, this is a very early draft, fresh out of brainstorming, and I'm seeking critique here, so feel free to suggest more ideas, and if any of the ideas I showed here aren't very plausible or don't really make much sense, please let me know so I can change or scrap them.

2023.06.04 09:20 mli0912 WIBTA if I confront my friends for not wishing my daughter a happy birthday?
Long time reader, first time poster. Recently I (F34) celebrated my daughters 6th birthday. A few weeks prior my friend (we’ll call Sam) sent a group email at work (we all still WFH since covid) about her leaving meal, which would have been on the same day. She clearly forgot, no problem, I messaged her privately to say I won’t be making it as it’s my daughters birthday and she has a whole day planned. I got no reply. Sam likes to be centre of attention, and everyone else in the group seem to love making her that. Most of our conversations are about her and her child, and if I talk about my kids, or anything to do with me, nobody seems to want to carry on the conversation. Anyway the day of, none of my friendship group, (5 of us including me) message to say happy birthday to her. I post a picture on Facebook, only one comments to say happy birthday, none of the others even ‘like’ it. I know it sounds ridiculous, but every time someone sent her birthday wishes, I told her and she brightened up even more, and seriously do they not have 1 minute in a day to send happy birthday wishes to my daughter? It’s not a lot to ask is it? So I’m quite angry, I’m not a confrontational person in the slightest, I never say anything to people when I feel like this, but I’m really angry. Also to note, I’ve noticed times where all the others in my group have gone out and I knew nothing about it, which makes me believe there is another chat without me in it. WIBTA if I send a message to my group to say how annoyed I am? I feel like it’ll be me against 4. I feel like I’m done, but I only have a few other friends that live further away and I don’t see as often. Being a mum of 2, working from home, it can get quite lonely.

2023.06.04 09:20 AutoBusDriver What's the deal with that recent thread in OOTL that asked about a crusade and LGBT community?
Some unusual activity has been going on in this thread
, and I wasn't sure if I was just "out of the loop" with regards to how this particular thread was being handled by the mods & community.
1) Typically a thread will receive 20 comments or so in 12 hours. This one received A THOUSAND. Within a day, it received two thousand. Was the thread brigaded? What am I missing here?
2) When I visit this subreddit, the rules are immediately visible on the sidebar, with Rule #1 being "Post title must be a current, unbiased, and coherent question". The post title referred to a movement as a "crusade", which is far from unbiased. The mods are usually pretty good about removing leading thread titles, so what am I missing here?
3) All of the top answers were variations of the exact same response, with MASSIVE upvotes that aren't typical of this sub. And when I say "variations of the exact same response", I mean it's like a chatbot was asked to retype the same viewpoint using the same outline, no less. Seeing so many top responses begin with a historical disscussion of the Republican Party before talking about present day allegations against them, along with ignoring any current news related to the topic (IE bud light, target, etc) raises eyebrows. If so many responses look like chatbot resubmission forms, then what am I missing here?
4) The mods are completely asleep on Rule #4 in that thread. To a comical degree. If not, what context am I missing here?
Basically I don't understand the circumstances that allowed that thread to exist in it's current form. I feel "out of the loop", and I am wondering if the entire thread wasn't a coordinated effort to karma-farm by a few people and their bot scripts.

2023.06.04 09:20 not_scythelol Ding dong ditched a karen (story)
So my parents are at my moms sisters baby shower, and I didn’t really want to go because i would just be sitting in an uncomfortable chair listen to moms half drunk talk about random stuff. So im staying at my friends house because he has a birthday that we were gonna stay the night at anyway, so i just went there. We were having fun and my friend just downloaded Dead Island 2 so we were chillin for a bit. (Also there were only me, my friend, and another good friend of ours.) And our other friend, who we’ll call jack said that we should go get my vr headset from my house, because its like a 2 to 3 minute walk over there. On the way there, one of us said that we should ding dong ditch someone. My mistake here is agreeing. Something to note here is i was assuming that it was around 7pm because of the semi-dark blue sky. We walked up to a house and we did a not-it type of thing and i ended up losing, so i told them to hide behind a bush. I rung the doorbell and we sprinted so fast a almost ran a whole block. I looked back to see where my friends were and they were close so i laughed. Just so happened a car turning the corner had a lady who was not having any of it that night at the wheel. She honked her horn for a good 5 seconds as she zoomed down the corner we were scared and we just ran to my house since it was right there. We got the oculus and just stood there for a good 30 seconds just confused snd paronoid that she was gonna come around the corner to kill us or something. We just walked out the door with the oculus and locked the door. But guess what? Guess who came around the corner? We see the same car that honked at us pull up in front of my house, and open the door (in the middle of the road by the way,) and stick her hear out the top.
K = angy lady
Op = me
f1 = friend 1
f2 = friend 2
K: Hey! Were you guys just ringing door bells and running?!
Op, f1, f2: What?
K: You were weren’t you?
F2: i mean yeah ig.
K: (Gets out of car and walks on to my yard and private property.)
K: Where do you guys, live?
Op: I dont need to disclose that information to you.
K: Tell me now!
Op: Why do you want to know that?
K: I’ll follow you home then.
F2, op: Dont do that thats weird.
Op: Look, i live here at this house, get off my yard its private property.
K: Or what?!
Op: idk your trespassing.
K: i don’t believe that you live at ths house, unlock the door!
Op: (i unlock the door with the key i had.)
K: Are your parents home? Let me talk to them.
Op: No they’re not (explains the baby shower thing)
K: do you have a cellphone?
K: put your parents on the phone.
Op: im not going to do that, get off my yard.
K: i have cameras you know! I have the footage! Im gonna be here tomorrow morning and tell your parents.
Op: Thats all fine and good but they are gonna here from me before you even wake up.
K: They better know!
Op: Cool now get off my yard.
K: (walks to her car and drives off.)
F2: (flips off the car)
Keep in mind that she was screaming the whole time. We all texted our moms to tell them what was going down. F1’s mom starts walking toward us and asked us where K went. AND GUESS WHAT?THE HOUSE WE DING DONG DITCHED JUST SO HAPPENED TO BELONG TO K. F1’s mom went to the house to apologize and we all just walked to f1’s house. His mom wasn’t to mad, she just told us why it was dumb. But something funny just accured to me. She left her kid at home watching jeff the killer videos and he got scared when we rung the doorbell, we rung a doorbell, but she honked her horn at 10 at night. She was standing on my private property and denied the question to get off my property.
TLDR: me and my friend ding dong ditched a karen and she yelled at us and we ended up taking a w.

2023.06.04 09:18 Beneficial-Bee8296 New employees, hours being cut.
This might be a long one, please bare with me.
I work at Walmart in small-ish town in British Columbia. I have been there since November, 2022. My availability is all day everyday. When I started I was getting 37 hours a week. I know it was busy season, so that was probably why. But After the holidays I was still getting 35-37 a week. Which was great! The last couple months, my hours started going down from the 35-37 a week, to where this week I have 17 hours and next week I have 16.50. For context I am a cashiesco attendant and also work on the Customer Service Desk. In the last few months seems almost every shift I come in, there are 1 or 2 new people (I am not over exaggerating) I asked if I could get more shifts and the response I got was “ there aren’t any extra ones” if you don’t have shifts available for the people who have been here longer and have open availability why keep hiring? If they need to hire (which we don’t need any new front end staff) simply say these are the hours I have available. I don’t think it’s fair to take hours away from the people who have been there longer.
On the customer service desk, when I started aside from the CSMs there are 3 full time staff members. In January myself and another coworker got asked if we would like to work on the desk as well. We have 1 full time who lady who has a set schedule Monday- Friday 7am-3. Another lady who worked 4 times a week and another lady who does the rest of the shifts as well as she is a CSM. Now the ASM for the front end has asked ME to train 4 others on the desk(who are fairly new) I had to bite my tongue because what I wanted to say and probably should of was “why should I train them when mine and the the 3 other ladies on the desk hours are being cut?” I have absolutely no problem training people, but now I’m starting to get fed up with it, because each person I train is basically taking a shift away from me and others.
I guess my question is, should I talk to the store manager because I honestly don’t think she knows or understands how bad it is getting up front. I tried talking to my ASM and it was basically attitude I got from her and in one ear and out the other. I really like working at my store. But it’s starting to get ridiculous. My ASM micro manages so bad to the point where she either stands at the front, or at the back of the tils and watches all of us for hours on end. She won’t answer Parked calls for ASMS or deal with customer inquiries or complaints. She also only cares about the Mastercards, and if we get to the goal or not. Doesn’t care about the customers just as long as we hit the goal, if we hit the goal, she wants double the goal etc… doesn’t matter if we are good with the customers, get donations or recovery. Hiring every person who comes thru the door, and Mastercards is the most important to her. I will also add I am not the only person who’s fed up and hours are being cut substantially.
Any advice would be helpful. Thank you for taking the time to read this!
