2023.06.03 23:33 Lipbalmbabe Today my (26 F) co-worker (30 M) broke up with me
I don't know the purpose of this post. Perhaps to vent? Get my feelings out? Reassurance? Or maybe just some strong words to push me through. Basically, for the past 6/7 months I developed a great friendship with one of my co-workers. We don't work in the same departments and he works full time in the office while I WFH full time, The friendship consisted of the occasional chat through social media, having a laugh on works nights out and sometimes the sharing of a funny meme - nothing untoward. Then earlier this year (5 months ago), my relationship with my ex broke down and shortly after (unrelated - or so I thought) so did his. From then on, communication between us increased as we both started to bond over our recent breakups and tried to find positives in day to day life. This turned into regular phone calls, facetimes, constant texting and even nights out together (not work related). Eventually it turned into night time drives, and then evenings in front of the TV, At this point - nothing romantic between us happened. Then, on a night out he confessed to having feelings for me for some time and that was partly why he split up with his ex. This took me very much by surprise. Anyways, after that we began hanging out even more - and I started to develop feelings. This was around 3 months ago. It became very passionate between us very quick and on a few occasions I asked if it was just a "lust" thing and nothing more - I was told it was not lust. We actually got on really well and had lots of similar interest and life views, always laughing about something or constantly updating one another about something that just happened in our day, However, given both our fairly recent breakups we agreed to keep things platonic and make sure nothing serious happened, because neither of us wanted that just yet. He also had a habit of suddenly ghosting me for a few days because as he put it "he kept overthinking things". Maybe a month ago, I found out he was on a dating app and I got jealous - a feeling I really don't like. And given the great relationship that was developing between us I hated the fact he was perhaps looking elsewhere and so I voiced this to him and communicated that I felt things were going well between us and I wanted to slowly pursue what was happening. He agreed, and the dating apps stopped. A few weeks after this, and having known each other for some time and getting along great - he asked me to be his girlfriend and we agreed for now to keep it between us in the office, so as to remain professional, but out with it was fine. We booked lots of gigs together, our friends and family were aware and I was genuinely really happy that we could slot into each others lives. This was a week and a half ago, during which time something happened which made me quite uncomfortable. He was round one evening and said he had something he wanted to tell me, which was that his neighbour (F) had asked for his number. What struck me was the way he said it to me, like almost half smirking. I asked if he gave it to her and he replied "yes" but in a very like "I shouldn't have but I did" way - hard to describe. I asked him why, and he said it was peace of mind, which I totally get but I also told him I didn't feel comfortable with that because they lived next to each other for years and she didn't ask for his number when he was with his ex - only now she knew they weren't together. He then tried to reassure me, telling me he had text her that night to say he was staying at my house and she could use his parking space- I challenged this, and when he tried to prove it he realised he hadn't in fact said that to her at all. HMMMM Anyways, communication patterns rapidly changed a couple of days after this. He started to take hours to reply and when he did - it was clear he wasn't interested in talking because it was either one word answers or just no answer full stop (despite him coming on and offline ALOT). I also picked up that conversations were very much about him and how he was and about his day - he never asked me anything about mine or how I was. This upset me because just this week we had the most incredible date, and now this? This began to bother me so I phoned him 3 days ago and brought it up and asked if we were OK. He reassured me that we were fine and that he was just very busy and that a big project would be coming in which meant possibly for the next 3 weeks he would be even more busy... too busy to even talk to me? Fast forward 2 days later - today, and it was 24 hours since I last text him and no response. I was angry because I had told him the lack of communication was frustrating me and that I was worried about us. I was meant to see him last night and he said he would let me know, I never heard from him. So I decided to text him this morning about perhaps seeing each other tonight, but I had a gut feeling he wouldn't be available. Sure enough, a few hours later he responded to say he had something on tonight that he had forgotten about. No offers of another time to see me, just "Sorry!" and I just knew instantly he wasn't interested anymore. So I text him pretty much offering him an out of the relationship because I wasn't accepting nothing from him anymore. I would accept tired, I would accept busy - but I wouldn't accept nothing or inconsistencies. He phoned me shortly afterwards to briefly say that he had checked out, his head wasn't in it and that he could no longer commit to me. I told him I didn't understand, had his feelings just gone away? Was he lying to me on Wednesday when he said we were fine? To which I was told he didn't have the time to get into it. WOW. So I told him to enjoy his day and hung up. That was this morning and I have heard nothing since. No text to say sorry or to check if I am ok. I am confused, angry, doubting everything, hurt and have so many questions. I really opened myself up to him and told him fears, dreams and other things I had only ever kept to myself. He knew, given past relationships, I was always scared of being unwanted (I have been cheated on previously) and swore he would never do anything to make me feel that way... but now he has. So here I am, sat alone on a Saturday night with hurt and confused feelings and a bottle of wine.. I feel a sense of calm, if you can call it that, because the feelings of confusion I have felt all week about what he was doing, why wasn't he talking to me etc. have gone, but now I am filled with anger as to WTAF?!
**TL;DR;** : My co-worker broke up with me today

2023.06.03 23:32 Administrative_Toe96 To The Last Man....
This story is related to my previous one here: https://www.reddit.com/HFY/comments/13xxyz8/a\_pile\_of\_spent\_plasma\_cartridges\_and\_a\_red\_cross/
I sat on my bunk nursing a nasty looking black eye given to me by our “Gracious host”. It’s funny how humanity has sprung forth from its homeworld, and the best remedy for a black eye is still a frozen bag of peas. This is bullshit, I don’t want to be here anymore then they want me to be here. This whole idea of cooperating for the “good of all” isn’t panning out. I need to put—— my train of thought is interrupted by the sound of klaxons. I put down the mostly frozen bag of peas and reach for my gear. Having drilled for this thousands of times in my 4 years since being drafted. It took my less than 30 seconds to dawn my armor. As I lifted my helmet and activated the display I saw red text scrolling across. “HOSTILE FORCES IN SYSTEM, FLEET ATTEMPTING TO REPELL. CONFIDENCE LOW. PLACING ALL TERRAN FORCES UNDER THE TEMPORARY COMMAND OF LOCAL FORCES” Fuck, this couldn’t get any worse. I just got into a bar fight with these lizards and now I have to take orders from them? What is command thinking? A new text message scrolled across my display. “ATTENTION ALL TERRAN FORCES, UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE YOUR ORDERS ARE TO GARRISON THE CIVILIAN SHELTERS IN THE F’RIX DISTRICT. DIRECTIONS ARE BEING FORWARDED TO YOUR COMMAND.” Great, that didn’t take long. Bet the— my thought was interrupted by Captain Armstrong. “Alright D Company, Lets stow the attitude and get to work. Our assignment is approximately 10 kilometers deep in the city. Hurry up and mount up and let’s get rolling. We’ll decide all the details when we get there” I grabbed my rifle and medical kit and heaved up from my bunk. “Jesus St. John, you look like I feel” Corporal Blankenship said with mirth in his voice “Fuck you, let’s just get this over with.” He’s easily the most annoying member of my team. Being a Navy Corpsman in the Terran Republic Marines isn’t all it’s made out to be. On one hand, you become family to them. They treat you as a brother even if you aren’t “one of them”. On the other hand, you might as well be in the Marines. “ Hey corpsman, do you think the fleet is going to be able to prevent a landing?” PFC Thompson yelled over the sound of shuffling gear “ Oh jeez PFC, I Don’t know. Let me call up the Admiral and check. Right after I do that I think I’ll also wish the enemy away as hard as I can.” “Dick” he shot back I set towards the door with my rifle in hand. As I approached the threshold an APC skidded to a stop. Several tons of steel, the APC wouldn’t have been out of place in any old war movie. The best way to move troops on the ground was still a fast and lightly armored box with wheels. The loading ramp defended and I proceeded to stow my rifle in the racks by the entrance. I took my seat at the back of the APC. I hate riding in these steel coffins. Although if we get hit the chances of me making it aren’t any better if I’m here or sitting in the driver's lap. The tires skidded as the last troops loaded in and took their places. Limited conversations were taking place. With time to think about the situation we were in everything became so much more real. Marines are still Marines though. It didn’t take long for jokes to start flying and ease the tension. A new message scrolled across my vision. “FLEET FORCES HAVE FAILED TO PREVENT THE ENEMY FROM GAINING ORBITAL SUPREMACY. RETREATING TO FORWARD OPERATING BASE LINCON TO RENDEZVOUS WITH OTHER FLEET ELEMENTS.” Fucking great. The APC skidded to a stop in front of the main entrance of the emergency shelter. “Everybody out!” Yelled Sgt. Newman He is the saltiest Marine I’ve ever had the pleasure of serving with. Straight to the point and no time for bullshit. I Exited the APC to find controlled chaos. Everywhere seemed like it was filled with figures in armor running to some location. Sgt. Newman was instantly called to the small Command post immediately forward of the Shelter Entrance. After a short exchange, he jogged back to us. “ Alright folks, We have been tasked with taking up position in the outer defensive line. This means we will get all of the action if there is any to be had today. Lets hoof it up there like a couple of Marines on leave in a whore house” Everyone chuckled, even me. I’ve been around Marines to long. We jogged to our new position and set up. My job was essentially to sit back and wait until someone got hurt after I helped set up the squad's plasma gun emplacement. “ORBITAL LANDING PODS DETECTED IN UPPER ATMOSPHERE. APPROXIMATE LANDING LOCATION UNKNOWN. PREPARE FOR DEFENSE OF THE PLANET” Here we go. “They won’t land here right Sgt. I mean we are just protecting the civilians” said PFC Thompson said with a clear quiver in his voice. “Stow that shit Thompson, if they do we’ll handle it” Sgt. Newman fired back. He didn’t look so sure. I’d never seen him actually look nervous. “KLAXION FORCES HAVE ENGAGED THE ENEMY———“ The rest was cut off. What was that? I’ve never seen the tactical net go down before. “LOCAL COMMAND NET OVERRIDE: DROP PODS DETECTED WITH TRAJECTORY CORRESPONDING TO OUR LOCATION” The silence of my squad was heavy and thick. We all knew what that meant. We were cut off from joint command and on our own. No backup. “ LOCAL COMMAND NET OVERRIDE: KINETIC BOMBARDMENT INCOMING TAKE COVER “ I threw myself to the ground and tried to bury myself behind the thick concrete barriers originally intended to prevent vehicles from leaving the roadway. A sound lack thunder followed me there. The ground shook, glass broke in the buildings above and heat washed over me. A wall of dust and dirt moved through our position obscuring everything. As my hearing returned I raised my head to see that most of the squad had recovered and was preparing to repel the enemy attack that was surely going to accompany this. “CONTACT!” Screamed our plasma gunner The world became a place filled with bright lights and sizzling bolts. I looked around to see if my services were needed anywhere. “CORPSMAN!” The sound that all corpsman dread hearing because it means that one of our charges is hurt. Possibly fatally. I rushed over to the huddled mass of marines. “Move over dammit” I yelled as I pushed past the two marines who called me over. “He took a piece of falling debris” What I saw in front of me was a mangled mess. I looked up at the wounded marine. From what I could see it looked like whatever hit him shattered his chest. “ Alright, We need to get him back to the aid station in the shelter I can’t do anything for him here. I need someone to come with me because I can’t carry the stretcher on my own. “ Sgt. Newman “ Take Thompson, radio before you come back” The look he gave me was one of resignation. It was bad, really bad. He knew it, and he didn’t expect there to be a position for me to return to. Thompson and I grabbed the stretcher from my aid bag and assembled it. Carefully we rolled the wounded marine onto it. “ Suppressing fire “ shouted Sgt. Newman We launched to our feet and took off running as carefully as possible. Plasma bolts sizzled past us as we approached the second and then final defensive line. We hurried into the entrance of the emergency shelter alongside several other wounded. We placed our charge down on the floor in the hallway. At this point, our job was done and we were to return back to our post. As I turned to go back another Sgt. Blocked my way. “The first defensive line is gone. Corpsman, Stay here. We are trying to consolidate at the second line but it’s not looking good. PFC Stay here as well. I’m attaching you to the Final line of defense. I need more marines if they break through the second line” I glanced at Thompson who was already moving to obey orders. The shock of what we had just been told hadn’t had time to set in. The training was what kept us both moving. I rushed into the field hospital to see what I could do. What greeted me was horror. Men bleeding, screaming, and dying. A field surgeon grabbed me. “I need you to hold pressure on this wound so I can go prep a the Emergency OR” I stared at him in confusion. OR? What do you mean OR? We’ve been here maybe 30 minutes. How the hell did one get set up here so quickly? I obeyed regardless of my disbelief. The Marine screamed out in pain as I applied pressure. There was blood everywhere. The next couple of hours were a flash of gore and death. We were caught in the middle trying to fight back the Grim Reaper as well as this new foe. By nightfall, the enemy had broken through the second defensive line and had drawn back before taking on the final line. It was quiet, so damn quiet. I wandered around the shelter. I couldn’t sleep. A tail as old as time. I came to A large room with bunks and voices. Inside were the people we are here to protect. Lizards, that's what most of us described the Klaxions as. They were basically bipedal reptiles. However, I found something in my heart while watching them clutch their children to their scaled faces. This is the first time I’d seen any civilians. They looked, and acted like us. Yes, they appeared different but they still clutched their young to their chest. Still comforted the old. My entire worldview that I thought was stable as a concrete high-rise came crashing down on my head. I thought these people were vicious killers of men. All of them, but they just aren’t. They are afraid just like us. One Motioned me over and held up a device. “What is your name Terran” the device spat out at me “St. John” “St. John, will you join me for tea?” “I uh—“ “ Please, it's the least we can do” I sat as a cup was placed in my hand, the tea was warm and steaming. After the Klaxion was done pouring my cup I lifted it to take a sip. It was full of flavor causing my sharp features to scrunch up with surprise. “First time having traditional Klaxion Tea?” “ Yes, it’s uh. Really good *chuckle* “ “ I’m glad you like it, do you have any news from outside the shel——“ Three thunderclaps shook the shelter. Screams rang out in the crowd. “Everybody down!” I yelled as I ran back to the adjoining hallway I didn’t get far before I ran into retreating elements of the final defense line. “Corpsman, take up position in the doorway and prepare to repel the enemy” I looked at him in shock. “Do it now goddammit!” Plasma bolts started flying down after the retreating marines. At their rear was Captain Armstrong carrying what seemed to be…… Thompson, PFC Thompson. He looked badly injured. The Captain rushed him inside the main shelter room and laid him down. Immediately the Klaxion rendered as much aid as they could. Although physically different. Both of our species knew that fluids leaving the body in a hurry was bad news and to apply pressure. As I turned back to the Captain he took a plasma bolt to the face. There wasn’t anything left. What was left was all over my face shield. “Here they come!” Shouted someone from the hallway. I heard screams, so many screams. Screams of terror, screams of anger, screams of rage. In the end, my Plasma rifle ran dry. I looked around me, spent plasma cartridges layn in piles. I heard footsteps behind me. The walking wounded had armed themselves with knives, sticks, and sidearms. Then they came into the entrance. I threw myself in front of the civilians out of instinct. An instinct given to all humans. To protect the innocent. As the plasma bolts ripped through my body, one must have clipped my spine. I could feel the pressure of the shots but nothing else. The room grew dark except for one spot. This must be the light everyone talks about. I’m sorry I couldn’t do more, but we did all we could.

2023.06.03 23:27 xxenien [OC] Brutalist post office in Skopje
2023.06.03 23:26 WeGoatMail4U Can usps decide they will no longer deliver to an address? How do I remove this ban?
Because I can’t drive and living is super expensive I recently shipped through usps forty boxes to a family member’s house, if I had another option to get thing there I would have and I threw away and donated most of my possessions. The usps notified my family today they would no longer be delivering packages to their address and they would have to come to the post office to pick things up. I know they rely on delivery for things like pet food and I was unaware that the usps could do this. I am interested in contacting them to see if the punishment could be shifted to me instead since it was my error and not their error. I also have the last three boxes to send and I can’t just throw them away what should I do?

There's obviously still a rule 6 clearly called no axe grinding no matter where you look at the rules or wiki. The wiki was even updated after the comment in question and the axe grinding rule is still there.

2023.06.03 23:10 Outrageous-Serve-964 27 [F4M] Nebraska let’s run off into a cornfield!
Hello! Thanks for stopping by my post! A bit about me:
- I work with animals at a humane society. There isn’t an animal I don’t like, though I’m hugely a cat person over a dog person at this point in my life. My job is not easy and I have a crude sense of humor to deal with the things I deal with day to day. I can make a joke out of pretty much anything .
- I am plus sized and I like to think I'm like a 5/10 on the attractive scale. I grew up with a poor self-esteem, but it’s definitely gotten better and I am learning to love myself.
- I am incredibly independent and have lived alone since I was 21. I am pretty inexperienced when it comes to dating/relationships.
- I love binge watching tv shows. My go to shows are The Office, King of the Hill, Grey's Anatomy, SVU, criminal minds, plus several other shows. Open to suggestions for more binge worthy shows.
- Social Anxiety is real, I love exploring chill places like museums, zoos, and thrift stores. Not a huge bar person.
- I am VERY childfree so if you want kids I am not the person for you. You got a cat/dog/exotic/fish? Sign me uppppp. Their is not an animal I dislike!
- I’m bisexual/ probably asexual (it’s complicated lol)
- I am a homebody but would love to find someone who can draw me out of my cave once in a while :)
- if your outside the US I won’t respond I’m sorry. I’m ok with a LDR to a certain extent but I wanna keep it realistic
What I'm looking for:
- Someone who is loves to joke around but also I want someone who can get into deep conversations and talk about things in depth.
- I would prefer to take things slow (especially if its long distance) I am not one to rush labels and though I dont mind exclusivity I just want to hang out and have fun. IM NOT INTO HOOK UPS so sorry if thats what your looking for. I can vibe with people and be in the mood but if you come out strong I'm not into it.
- Preferably someone on the tubby side too who can feel my pain lol I like the Teddy Bear types.
- 25-37 and in the US/ideally the midwest/Nebraska so meeting could be possible in the near future.
- Memes and pics of animals is ideal. Funny videos, music you like, anything that lets me know what you enjoy are things I really enjoy to receive
Would love to hear from you!!

2023.06.03 23:08 Intelligent_Simple_8 Celebrities who were friends before they became famous (feat. throwback pics and ☕️!)
| || | submitted by Intelligent_Simple_8 to popculturechat [link] [comments]
For the most part I've tried to avoid super obvious examples (hence the lack of Damon/Affleck), Nepo Babies who grew up together (spot the exception!), or people who met after they started to pursue a career (drama school, improv classes, early performances, etc.).
This is just a list of people who happened to know each other as kids and who both ended up making it in the entertainment industry.
- John Krasinski and BJ Novak used to play Little League together. They went on to attend Newton South High School, Massachusetts, before reuniting for 'The Office'.
- Rachel Bilson and Rami Malek attended Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks (with Kirsten Dunst but I couldn't find a pic with her in it). Rami admits to having had a crush on Kirsten but appears not to be especially fond of Rachel who, by all accounts, may have exaggerated the closeness of their childhood friendship.
- Lenny Kravitz and Slash were both students at Beverley Hills High School. (Nicholas Cage was apparently there at the same time).
- Laura Linney and Brooke Shields were childhood friends. I couldn't find too many more deets but how cute is that pic??
- Tupac Shakur befriended Jada Pinkett Smith while they were both students at Baltimore School for the Arts. Despite rumors of them having dated, Smith maintains that the relationship wasn't romantic but instead was based on mutual 'survival'.
- Snoop and Cameron Diaz were one year apart during their time at Long Beach Polytechnic High. She fondly recalls buying weed from him.
- Andy Samberg and his fellow Lonely Island members (Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer) were all students at Willard Junior High, in the Bay Area, and became close friends during their time at Berkeley High. Even before that, though, Andy attended Anthony Chabot Elementary, in Oakland, with his future 'Brooklyn Nine Nine' co-star Chelsea Peretti.
- Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts met at North Sydney Girls’ High School in Australia and still seem to be super tight to this day. Nicole has described the relationship as being 'like a sisterhood'.
- Lauryn Hill and Zack Braff both went to Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey. They were even good enough friends for her to attend his Bar Mitzvah.
- Maya Rudolph and Gwyneth Paltrow first struck up a friendship as 7 year olds at St Augustin by-the-sea Episcopal School, in Santa Monica.
Let me know if I forget anybody! 🙂

2023.06.03 23:03 avz86 I couldn't take it anymore and moved back home
I (from the US) moved to a country in Europe that I have visited many times, and before I fully established myself and planted roots in the US, I was curious to try living in this country a bit. Call it nostalgia perhaps, an appreciation of my heritage, whatever it may be, I was curious and felt I would rather live with disappointment than with regret of having never tried.
I found a good job opportunity that paid quite an above average living wage with the prospects of an advancement in my field.
I speak the language fluently and with almost no accent, so my assimilation should (or so I thought) have been almost seamless.
It is 4 months later that I bought a ticket back home to the US after my stress levels, isolation, loneliness reached a breaking point where my deteriorating health couldn't take it any longer. Sleepless nights, a compromised immune system where I was getting quite sick every two weeks, chest pain, accelerated breathing, you name it I got it.
Basically, I tried all I could: Various meetup groups through Facebook, different sports, running clubs, recommendations from friends, hanging out with people from work, hanging out with people, going out with people I knew, breaking the ice with relative strangers and attempting to go out with them, swipe apps (Tinder is really the only one used here), instagram messaging, you name it.
Now, perhaps the problem is with me, although back in the US I did not have issues making friends and meeting people. I can really attribute this to a big, big difference in mentality.
I grew up in a blue state with very progressive ideas, attended a prestigious university and was brought up in a very global sense: what is good should be considered good universally, additionally good ideas are not bounded by borders, or flags next to them. I grew up with an appreciation of all cultures and an open minded ness for new ideas.
The country where I came (it is in Eastern Europe), unfortunately, does not value these principles for the majority of the population. I can elaborate why for many reasons, but ultimately: a very corrupt country stemming from the highest political office, with this corruption inevitably trickling down to all facets of life, a poor country, very much so except for a few exceptions in the IT/engineering industry, bad air quality, cost of living extremely disproportionate to wages, etc.
Ultimately though, it is the people, the relentless hedonism of the youth, the ostrich mentality of putting your head in the sand to world affairs, of hating the west blindly because the media propagates that message, of hating the concept of many western and democratic ideals, made it very difficult for me to lie to my basest of beliefs so that I could incorporate myself with the majority.
I write this post only to warn someone who may be considering such a move, that what is most likely, is what will in fact most likely be your situation wherever you choose to go. Do not choose to make a move based on very slim, idealistic notions you may have. You may be lucky to find some exceptions, but do not base decisions on very slim odds of success, when the evidence is overwhelming that your outcome will be contrary to what you expect.

2023.06.03 23:03 cheesecockfucktory Does anyone else’s brain make really absurd connections or is there something else wrong with me?
So I have the classic “loud brain chatter radio channel switching” type of thoughts. I have been paying more attention to my thoughts and I just realized how fucking strangely my brain thinks. Part of me thinks adhd is the cause but I’m curious if anyone else relates or if there is another issue going on. Here are some examples:
- Was scrolling through Instagram and I saw a video of three Indian girls dancing. I saw that some random guy from work liked it and I think “I’m Indian and kind of look like the middle girl so maybe I’m his type. maybe he has a crush on me, remember that one time when..”. Im not attracted to this guy at all, I don’t care in the slightest what his type is, I don’t want to pursue him or anything like that and no, I’m not in denial. I dont want him to have a crush on me. He’s a random guy I speak to once every few months at most. But I catch myself going on these weird tangents about random people all day and I feel like a narcissist or something.
- I posted a video on my social media and a very specific random picture popped up into my head of my crush from 5 years ago looking at the video, looking up the song I tagged, and adding it to his Spotify. Like what???? So oddly specific and it just popped into mind.
- Bought a dragon fruit from the market then went home and started daydreaming that I was raised on a tropical island and had to grow dragon fruit for a living. The whole time I was cutting up the fruit my mind was wandering. I ate it, then started getting ready for a date. I ended up daydreaming about my date and I living on an island and raising our child on the beach. Like, such a an intense fantasy.
- I saw a girl who looked like my younger sisters childhood friend who I haven’t seen in decades. I then decided to look up the girl on Instagram and I ended up social media stalking her and other random people from our childhood for an hour.
- My boss mentioned that she likes Taylor swift and I started thinking about how if she ever asked me to play music for the office, I wouldn’t be able to play Taylor swift without looking like a suck up. Like when will she realistically ever ask me to play music??
I feel like such a weirdo sometimes and now that i am more conscious of these thoughts, I get anxiety whenever I notice them. Was I dropped on my head as a kid?? Am I a narcissist that thinks everything revolves around me? What is wrong with me.

2023.06.03 23:03 Probably-Interesting Why The Latest GMMore Episode Hit Me So Hard
I work for a relatively small company. We have about 50 employees but only about 10 in the main office. I do all of the marketing and branding for the company and I'm constantly trying to juggle all the different things on my plate, between social media, print marketing, podcast production, video editing, tech support, brand management, web design, etc. I love my job, and I think I'm good at it, but there's always a little voice in the back of my mind saying "you know you should be posting every day. why are you only posting every other day?" or "you're not going to get followers if you don't post more short-form videos on tiktok" or "you're focusing too much on the main brand. why are you ignoring the sub-brands?" or any number of other thoughts that go through my head. I know the right things to do but being one person I just don't always have enough time to do everything. Yesterday I got home from work and the "Meet Our New Team Members" GMMore episode hit me like a ton of bricks. It was amazing watching people say what they do and seeing that Mythical Entertainment has team members whose entire job is editing short-form videos, or producing a single podcast, or designing the thumbnails, or managing the social media. Obviously Mythical is a much larger company than mine so it's not comparing apples to apples, but seeing in such detail how a large company breaks up some of this creative work really put things in perspective for me and helped me feel more proud of what I do rather than feeling like I'm not doing enough. It seems like it was a super-awkward episode for Rhett and Link, but thank you to whichever Mythical Crew Member suggested and organized this episode. It meant a lot to me in a way I really didn't expect it to.

2023.06.03 23:02 rohitx3 Is this a good price for a 24-month treatment?
Hey everyone! Been looking at some of the older pricing posts and was curious about everyone's thoughts on a price quote I have here in the northern VA area. I am not exactly sure about the number of trays, but my dentist's office is quoting me around $3800 after insurance for a 24-month treatment involving some elastics. I definitely trust the practice and have been going to them for some time. Looking to start treatment ASAP and am not sure if it's worth shopping around at other practices. Is this a good price considering the treatment and area?

2023.06.03 22:58 Mr_Nex [WTS] PNW Toast, Vox Designs Dirty Raccoon, RGT Clip, MXG Clip, Saddleback Satchel & More!
Hey EDC Exchange -
Thanks for checking out my post! Re-listing a few things with price drops and added a few new items for your perusal. I am the original owner on all items listed EXCEPT the RGT clip.
First, let’s look at that timestamp!
First, a VoxDesign “Dirty” Raccoon - 3/8” in brass. Purchased new from UrbanEDC in July of 2022. I have way too many of these “bottle openers” from VoxDesign, and this one has never been carried or used…it should go to someone who will appreciate it. Basically new condition. Includes original bag and card. Item was $165 new. Video here.
Raccoon is SV:
$100 via PayPal FF (no notes), shipped via USPS. Final price drop on this before I just hang on to it.
Next up, a PNW Toast Co. Toast! This was purchased from UrbanEDC in June of 2021. This was an Urban EDC exclusive with a layer of Tiffany G10 sandwiched between Stabwood on one side and and Canvas Micarta on the other. Very cool little force multiplier, but I never ended up carrying it. Also purchased a brown Breadbox Slip (leather sheath) from Redeemed Creations that same month. Also never carried (although I did slip the toast in and out of it a few times, so it’s not “mint”). Toast includes original COA and paper bag wrapping. Item is like new. Toast was $189 new, sheath was $30. Photos here.
Toast & Slip are SV: $200 via PayPal FF (no notes), shipped via USPS.
Next, a Peak Eiger Ultra X in brass. Purchased directly from Peak in 2017, I’ve carried this a handful of times, but never really fell in love with the twisty style interface. This is the Hi-CRI version with narrow beam, includes the tail switch (momentary) and clip (which I think is a Preon clip, but I don’t actually remember…I did have to pick it up separately). Beam is lovely, light is in good shape. Runs off a 10440 Li-ion cell ONLY (not included). Light (without clip) was $85 new. Photos here.
Peak is SV: $50 via PayPal FF (no notes), shipped via USPS.
Next, a Ripp’s Garage Tech Polished Timascus clip for CRK. This came to me installed on a Large Inkosi I got on the Swap. I left it on, carried it twice, and decided it was just a touch too fancy for me. Removed the clip and it ended up in a drawer for a year or two, and was recently re-discovered. Clip is in good shape, although there are a couple very small spots on the left side of the clip that look like wear to me, I did my best to picture them. Otherwise, this is a great opportunity to set your CRK apart. These go for about $130 new, I believe. Photos here. RGT Clip is SV: $80 via PayPal FF (no notes), shipped via USPS.
Next, an MXG Titanium Deep Carry clip for Spyderco knives. I got a couple clips from MXG trying to find a good match for my Swayback, this didn’t make the cut, but I liked the clip and kept thinking I’d find a home for it…never did. Time to move it on! It was very briefly installed on the Swayback, but never carried. It’s in essentially new condition. Originally $25. Photo here.
MXG Clip is SV: $15 via PayPal FF (no notes), shipped via USPS.
Then we’ve got a Tanner Goods Document Folio in black. I got this from a sample sale grab bag about 10 years ago and loved it, but wanted it in brown. So, promptly ordered the cognac version and put this one away. It’s doing nobody any good stashed away, so it’s time to let it go. It’s made from a single piece of 5.5 oz vegetable tanned Meridian English Bridle leather, with brass studs. Features a felted wool sleeve. Aside from the “S” stamp (see pictures) I can find nothing that differentiates this folio from the full-price one I purchased at the same time. The case measures 12” long by 9” wide. Tanner Goods doesn’t make these anymore, if you’re looking for an elegant way to transport your documents (or iPad), this is a damn fine way to do it. Originally sold for $200. Photos here.
Folio is SV:
$60 via PayPal FF (no notes), shipped via USPS.
Lastly, a Galway vertical snap wallet from Blackthorn Leather. I purchased this back in 2018 and carried it a half-dozen times. It’s a great wallet, I just prefer a “trucker wallet” style form factor. Construction is SOLID, the wallet feels bombproof. Wallet is in excellent condition. Item is constructed from hand-dyed, full-grain vegetable tanned leather and lined with plaid accent fabric. Measures 3.5” x 4.75” closed. The concho is a very well done reproduction Walking Liberty quarter (the coin collectors in your life will thank you). Item was $115 new. Photos here. Wallet is SV: $65 $50 via PayPal FF (no notes), shipped via USPS.
FINALLY, the last item up for today is a Saddleback Leather - Large Satchel in Coffee Brown. Got this back in November of 2012 to replace a Large Briefcase that was too large. It was carried a bunch in an office environment, but was ultimately replaced by a Mountainback Large Satchel in 2016. The large satchel is no longer available (in fact, none of the bags I just mentioned are still available), so this is your chance to pick up this beautiful leather bag that is tired of living in my closet. I’m including an older Saddleback leather slip case. I’ve used it to carry iPhone/iPad chargers, but it can work for loads of different uses. Also including a set of two leather utility straps that Saddleback used to offer that I kept laced in the D-rings on the bottom of the bag (great for carrying a jacket or sweater).
Loads more information about the bag can be found via this review: https://bestleather.org/saddleback-leather-large-satchel-review-408/ Photos here.
Satchel was $350 new. SV is $240 via PayPal FF (no notes), shipped via USPS (I think, might need to go UPS). This is also available for local pick-up for $200 here in Southern California.
…and that’s all. Happy to entertain reasonable offers (or combine shipping), but I am definitely looking to sell (not trade). Thanks for looking and please feel free to reach out with any questions.

2023.06.03 22:56 inschanbabygirl no "dates" on phr4r
trigger warning: no "dates" on phr4r
interesting. no one's using the word "date" or "dates" sa phr4r. https://imgur.com/a/BJqLl6X
personally, i establish a lot more connection on meetups than chat. we're all busy professionals here and we must be deliberate on schedules, that's why i lose a lot of chat-connections just because i would reply at my own downtime. after all, why should anyone make a stranger a priority? i wouldn't even tampo on someone for replying to me 4 months later.
and this is why much later in my reddit stay, if i sense that my talking-stage buddy has no intention of meeting up in a wholesome way, i accept it internally and still engage them in talks, but just shallow talks and no depth in it. coz depth is something i can open up when i have a dedicated time to spend with a person, not in the middle of my daily life with only a screen to engage with.
and before anyone judge me why should anyone take me seriously when i post nsfw / smut stuff here.... well answer that question for me coz u are super duper intelligent human being to be able to come up with answers i could never do myself. so answer that question for me. u intelligent almighty being.
but hey, i have this other account without nsfw or smut in it and thats what i use for phr4r or other communities hoping to get to meet up with amazing souls here. but still, even the people i encounter using it have no intention to bond through wholesome meetups. and thats okay. thats just the way it is. phr4r aint a place to look for dates. not even fuckapps aka dating apps. the dates i've gotten were from guys i know personally. from the office, from the events i went to, from my alma mater. heres just me posting this to reach out to hopeful romantic girls like me looking for wholesome dates here on reddit... to also be aware of untasteful realities here. but hey, there are successful love stories here, too. heres me hoping ultra-excellent genuine men find u wherever u are in life. tc!

2023.06.03 22:55 Fancy-Comb1056 Recieved a package that’s not mine.
I bought something from a seller and received it yesterday. Today, I received another package from them of a bag. I just contacted them but am worried because I leave the country for 2 months on Monday.
If i take it to the post office and explain the situation, will they take care of it?
Edit to clarify: my name/address is on the shipping label but it’s not mine & i don’t want to keep it

Dibble had so many close calls, but never failed to keep his post. He was always warning Top Cat about the dangers of a new officer patrolling the beat. What would the gang have done if Dibble was really gone?

2023.06.03 22:48 kylheisem How do I explain to my husband that we are poor?
Edit: there’s not possible way I can get through all these replies. First and foremost, I understand this is a public forum so I got what I got but I flaired this as a vent for a reason. I was fed up and just needed to air it out because I was tired of talking to my parents about the same old bs and I don’t have any friends right now because I’ve been so depressed and caught up with motherhood. With that being said, I wasn’t seeking advice but thank you for the unsolicited insight anyways, some of it was very helpful.
For those of you in the future who come across this post, things are already improving, I don’t need anyone trying to solve my life problems via Reddit. My husband is currently being mentored by my father to become a Network Engineer and will be testing for certs in the next 6 months. I’ve been living in this very inclement situation for the last 6 months and it’s has been so difficult to say the least. Again, I was just looking to let off so steam after another of my husband ridiculous comments. He apologized later on his own. Within the last 12 hours many things have improved. He also thankfully is interviewing for another position, actually FULL TIME hours, that makes $20-$25/hr so we’d be able to move out sooner than later. I know this isn’t alot long term but it’s a stepping stone. Im working very part time with a modeling agency that I didn’t mention but since I am pregnant I don’t get much work now. And I am doing freelance writing work as well so I’m not just existing even though being a SAHM battling a toxic living situation is a full time job within itself. a lot of you didn’t know the whole story and just jumped to all types of conclusions, whatever, it’s what to be expected honestly.
I’m not leaving my husband because he mildly abuses me. I hate it when it happens but I understand he’s a wounded man who is making poor choices but I know with the proper tools and help, he won’t always be this way. It’s just been a tough season on both of us. Yes, we shouldn’t be living here any longer but it won’t be for much longer thankfully. I’m just taking it day by day. I married my husband knowing he had PTSD but because I got pregnant on our wedding night, alot of things happened quicker than we expected and haven’t adapted as fast as we should, we both admit. I’m sure many can understand that. I love my husband incredibly and he isn’t a terrible guy at all, he struggles with the poor behavior his parents modeled for him and hasn’t learned yet how to be better in some ways, though he’s made some massive improvements. This situation is temporary and I’m treating it as such. Doesn’t mean it’s still hard, gosh. There’s alot more to our story but again this was just meant to be venting post, just take it for that. I’ve applied for WIC but unfortunately missed the phone appt so I have another one set up. I told my husband we’re going to the VA office this Friday to get some info and he said OK. We will reply for SNAP once we move out because we technically do share food and I don’t trust his family to give any statements for our benefits nor do I want them to help us any more. Thanks again to all of you trying to help and provide solidarity.
Original post: I am a SAHM to my 1 year old daughter. My husband makes $18/hr but only brings home $1800-2150/ month. His job unfortunately only schedules him 28-36 hrs/week and he doesn’t think he can handle another job because of how tired he is from the first. I’ve offered for me to get a daycare job , he said no. I’ve tried to get him VA disability, he doesn’t want to try (although he suffers from PTSD; he’s been out for almost 10 years). I tried applying for food stamps and because we live with his parent who make much more, we don’t qualify.
I’m close to losing my mind being in our current situation. We argue so often. Living with his family has been so toxic, we need to get out of ASAP. But because he doesn’t make 3x rent in our state, we can’t afford to leave. A lot of our arguments revolve around this living situation and our finances.
This morning, my husband’s stepdad comes into the kitchen and asked casually if my husband is going to pay him rent or can he not afford it. My husband says “ I’ll see what I can scrape by, definitely going to be short.” Then stepdad nods and walks away. The first 3 months we were able to pay him $1000 even though it left us with very little. But these last few months have been hard and since November we’ve been giving him $600 or $500. My problem is my husband will wait until the 4th or 5th, until his stepdad has to ask for it and he will just say, yeah I’m short and that’s it. He won’t explain, I only make $1800, I don’t work full times hours, he just leaves the guy in the dark. (His stepdad is the sole provider of his household, he used to make around $200k+ year but now I think he makes $175k or more. He supports my husbands mom, his 12 year old daughter and my husbands 27 year old brother who hasn’t worked in 4 years because of a vague kidney issue)
In the past I used to explain things to his family but it’s probably best now if I do not because of how badly things have gotten between me and them. Today I tried telling my husband that he should explain to his stepdad that he doesn’t make enough to pay him the rent he expects and he said he’s not going to do that because his income is not stepdads fault and $1000 is a fair amount. I don’t agree that $1000 is fair but my opinion doesn’t matter, obviously. My husband then went on to say that it’s my fault that we can’t pay him enough because I spend our money frivolously. For one, we have separate accounts, any money I receive my husband has to send it to me and I have to ask for it and tell him what it’s for. He doesn’t seem to understand that we do not make enough money to support a family of 3 ( I am currently pregnant as well). he is looking for a higher paying job but he consistently blames our tight finances on my habits as opposed to the blaring issue that we need more money to support ourselves.
He expects us to live off of $120 of groceries every 3-4 weeks. Meanwhile his family will eat some of our food and it ends up being gone within 5 days. I do the best I can as a breastfeeding, pregnant mother. I admit I get a $5 burger once a week and split it with my daughter because we out and about and I want to “treat myself” but that is not what is breaking the bank. My husband spend $15-$25/ week on tobacco vapes but I dare not bring that up. I often feel like the only way to get through to him is if I have a full on mental breakdown and I’m so close.
