A community where we don't look at religion, but just focus on the important matter at hand which is God. Feeling down, like your drifting away from his presence come motivate yourself. Talk with your peers who are feeling just like you and just want to share the joy of loving God.

Would anybody be interested in this song pack at all? If so, I'll work on getting it even nicer and find out how to share it.

Initially, all the songs were supposed to be inspired by the Major Arcana, but I did away with that because of how StepMania organizes the songs in the wheel. Also, the songs were meant to be danced with a dance pad and no bar.

2023.06.08 00:48 feed-me-pizza Garage screwed us by being late

We have our campervan in a garage for some work to be done. Took it in at the start of May and requested it be finished for the end of May. They confirmed that this would be no problem via email.
I didn't get any updates so I called them up after a couple of weeks to see how things were getting on, where they confirmed over the phone that it would be ready for 8/6. This put a lot of pressure on our timescale but would have worked so I thought fine.
Again no update at any point so I called on 3/6 to check it was all on schedule, guy told me all was good and it would be ready.
Now this morning (day before pick up) I called up to double check and am now being told there is a 2 week delay!
The reason for the specific timeframe was that we have family that are taking it on a 3 week trip in Germany, leaving on 13th, so this delay now means that it is unavailable for them to take. They will now be incurring a lot of costs arranging alternative accommodation and transport.
The work being done amounted to around 4k and half was paid upfront.
Costs incurred due to the garage being delayed (while leading us on) will amount to 1.5k +.
I've looked on citizens advice and will try to negotiate with the garage to come to an arrangement but so far they have been shutting me down.
My next steps will be to find out if they are with an ADR scheme or trade association.
I would like to know if this is likely to be a case worth fighting financially as well as what the rules are around that second half of payment. Whether we can refuse it and still get our van back. And anything else relevant to the situation.
This is in England.

2023.06.08 00:47 Zealroth The Simulated Universe QoL changes are amazing

I know this patch added a bunch of really good QoL changes overall but the SU ones are the most impactful ones imo. The biggest ones for me have to be the fix, where, if you lose connection while choosing a blessing it doesn't leave you stuck on that screen and having to restart anymore.
And the other one, which is arguably a buff, being the fact that the path resonance which gives a second bar now keeps it topped at the end of a fight instead of resetting to one charge. Clearing mobs by just spamming resonance is so easy now.
The fact that your character loadout is pretty sweet, as well.

2023.06.08 00:45 throwing_after_ I (24M) thought this was the person for me (25F)

Oh guys where do I even flipping start 😂😅
This is high key vent because I'm done torturing my Mumzi on this and she has had enough of me. ,
This is not a spicy story, sorry just showing a perspective of how this relationship was for me
I wasn't even looking for anything but this user had submitted on a subreddit and it popped up on my suggestion had a look , did message her and say I was there for her if she needed anything.
A story to unfold and a journey I have been a part of it starts below.
I think we had a good understanding how life was portraying and how life is meant to be and spoke about a lot of general topics which brought a lot of interest where sometimes I opposed to what she had to say , vice versa and a lil bit of mutual agreements on topic. did speak a lot over here for few days and then exchanged numbers then moved onto WhatsApp this app became extinct for me.
Lets be honest it's not easy to maintain long distance because it takes a lot of time, strength , trust and many other factors too even though she was a heavy no in the first she folded two weeks later after requesting a bad poem , which I delivered to knock her socks out and after this we did have an amazing time together. Spent a lot of time together over call, video calls , over text , did movie nights and what nots.
I knew this would end sometime soon because I couldn't close the distance or atleast visit and see her once, just once ! God fucking damn it still urks me that I did not have the opportunity to do this.
She did warn me though fair deuce to her because before we got into the relationship she was like know what you're getting into.
But trust me I always knew that but as time progressed on it , that know what you're getting into that thing just got erased out for me.
I loved this person for who she is , what she stands for and her beautiful personality everything else comes latter to me.
I haven't touched her hand , held her face. Literally no physical contact at all but the love which I have to her it's really difficult for me to put into perspective of how I looked at her. I fell for this persons soul...
She was very open minded not for everything but there was rationality, modest supportive, encouraging , understanding, gave me my freedom and she was a pillar of my strength during our relationship.
We had a relationship for almost a year , yes there were turbulences here and there not always just on the highs. But our problems were minimal and it was easily solvable.
I always be giddiy doesn't matter what time of the day it is when I see a message of hers or a snap and the sweetest thing she writes in the morning and the way she wakes me up when we're on a call sometimes she has to end cuz her mum bashes her door early in the morning cuz they have to do prayers or she is forced to go out and be active to do light walk and stuff.
This person meant the world to me and I have not fell this deep and hard for anyone else in my entire existence except her she is just one of a kind to me 💫
I don't even listen to my parents but whatever she says I do , do not call me whipped it's not the case it's just that I have huge respect and admiration for this girl , I would not do anything to upset her.
The problem comes knocking is when as an Indian girl you cannot be single for far too long I think a lot of you ladies out here can attest to it but yeah so she did tell me and kept me informed and I was okay but somehow I was not okay with it because as a partner you understand where she is coming from and she wanted stability in her life where she has a dedicated partner within the country and she was looking forward for marriage as well because I think she had minor minor issues with the fam but this is secondary I guess.
I swear to you I would have risked everything, every single thing of what I have just to be with her . I would have started from scratch and built an empire around her cuz I felt I could do anything when I was with her.
If she just nodded saying yes, Come speak to them I would have been there in less than 24 hours but sad for me never got the opportunity for this 😅 because she would say are you crazyy , you have really gone mad 😂.
I did tell her that I want to marry you and I was deadass serious as well but she explained to me how it was literally impossible that her parents would not even allow this as they only see grooms inside the caste and have a very specific requirements.
I pleaded her to atleast I will fly out once and come meet her dad and speak to him one on one and have a discussion as two gentlemens even after that if he says no atleast my heart would be shattered but I gave it my all for the love of my life . I did not get that chance . A lot of devastations from my side.
She has openly told me that she would love the person wholely who she gets married to but she said I love you like 3 times in one call while she was very drunk in a bar with her friend and that was such a cute moment for me and I did tease her many a times with this one incident later on 😂.
Nevertheless problems where I faced was depression and anxiety where my world stopped spinning and everything got bleak for me , I know I sound childish here but I swear I look out my window and I do tell myself shall I do it that I cannot bear this pain anymore but what stops me is I keep thinking what did my parents do to deserve this how can I do this to them and somehow stopped myself from it . Had an eating disorder and still do go through this now where it's been 7 months . Was admitted to the hospital for 1 week straight because there was not enough blood circulation/ food in my body . Did online therapy twice in two different times . Therapist did not help me out .
Occasionally did text her here and there but everytime I did I lost self respect within myself when doing this while she wants nothing to do anything associating with me.
Even during the last stint of the breakup she did prolong it a little bit and gave me time but I was clinching at everything and not coming to terms and grasping the fact that it's over.
Nevertheless whatever it is I think she transitioned much better in her life cuz she had someone else to speak to I think it would be her fiance by now so yeah but for me I felt very disposable and used at the end even though I know she never meant it to be like that but I felt it like that.
Got hurt so much in so many different ways directly / indirectly but somehow I have picked those pieces up little by little . I think my heart has made it's peace that she no longer is the one for you my guy . But the process to get here was just literally overwhelming.
I do ask myself why did I do this to myself when I knew how the outcome would be but I gave into what the heart wanted.
I legit don't think I deserved to be this hurt but maybe it is a learning experience for me as well for my personal growth in life .
Spoke to her recently but do want to cut off for good because everytime I hear her voice I cannot bear it, shreds me into pieces again and her voice alone can put me back into where I just came out from.
In my life no one had that kind of power over me just alone only her . She did tell me that I have put her on a pedestal and that I have clawed myself into her hands I do ponder on it is that statement factual maybe yes but for me I never saw it that way cuz she meant everything to me.
Well the final stretch I don't know what I need now, yes I need to be alone for sometime . Heal a lot . Get some selflove done be occupied with work and come up back again stronger.
I have always said her even if we cannot end up being together regardless how things pan out for me , I want you to be really happy in life .
Because idk what it is if she is happy in life so am I . I am content with that but now my willpower is different where I want her to know how far I have come and done things in life. Even if I don't get to know it I want that tiny little bit of infraction made into her heart that I missed out on a person who would have moved worlds for me that feeling is more than enough to keep my ambition and goals to drive me on.
Super hurt that she chose parents over me I mean yes yes I do understand everything and all the emotions and the background story and all but fuck meeee . It's me who is the one really got fucked end of the day too 😂😂
She did tell that there might be a story where she might tell her kids about what we had , not hoping on it but yeah maybe a different time , different place . Same country perhaps things could have worked out.
I wish her all the very best in life , thank you for coming into my life blossoming me and shedding light , bringing air and freshness to me and flourishing the relationship we had.
I will never forget you even after however long unless I get dementia other than that no way because you would be residing/etched in my heart someway or another.
Thank you for the wonderful memories you let me create with you and making it beautiful as it could during a 1 year relationship between us. Created a lot of memories and have some amazing moments with you. Never to be forgotten or easily replaced cuz god damn it woman you have set the bar high also, FML 😅😅.
I sincerely liked you the most out of everyone I was with.
Would redo this chapter over and over again even when knowing how it ends 🍃
A story with so many different layers and a lot of unsaid things on this. If I don't stop here I would write a damn book 😅.
A huge instrumental / pivotal person in my life I couldn't believe my eyes where I could be loved and unloved like that by the same person just like that which makes me go bonkers but realistically speaking she did try to protect me and she knew how I felt for her but it may have not been in her hands but she took the cowards' way out and I have to live and digest that fact but I have a lot respect to you as a person.
RiRi ♥️
If you have made it this far and reading this line well first of all Thank you for reading I'm not expecting much in return honestly just wanted to vent idek if it's vent when this has been me just sharing you a story .
Apologies if this was too lengthy I did not know how else to type this out other than this way .
Tldr - Don't know chief , read or you can just scroll to another post 💕

2023.06.08 00:45 BleachedPink I believe, I suffer from the lack of sense of meaning in life. What kind of therapy is good for me?

Hello everyone, a little backstory. I went to CBT therapy, and after I figured out my problems, like perfectionism, lack of respect for myself and so on, Mindfulness really helped me with intrusive thoughts. So it like drastically helped me and I am at a much better place right now. Though, now I hit another roadblock which cripples me.
I believe, the thing which haunts me is the lack of meaning in everything. If I were able to, I would slack off all day long playing games, watching youtube and so on. I believe, I had\have an addiction to video games, I could play Dota or other highly stimulating competetive games all day long, so I tapered it off in the past year. On my way to right now I relapsed a few times and binged for a week or two, though It seems I can right now get back on the track on my own, if I relapse, and live without gaming for months. motivation is almost non-existing I do not even feel like I am depressed or suffer a lot, but I am afraid that my current way of living is not sustaintable and would lead to much bigger problems in 2-5 years from now. And the reason why I have no motivation, I believe, is because I feel no sense of meaning. I can understand logically that I should study and find a job and so on.
I was thinking about visiting ACT therapist, as mindfulness really helped me, though I am not sure it can help with it, as I practice mindfulness everyday, meditate and just try to be aware all day long in order to avoid cognitive pitfalls of self-deprecation and perfectionism. And not sure whether it is a good approach if my problems stem from gaming addiction (which stem from my childhood). And I am a bit biased against psychoanalysis due to all that Freudian stuff. Though, I can't claim I am 100% well versed in this regard.
Any general advice or further reading I can do? I love reading good books, so if you have any recommendations, much appreciated
Sorry if it's all jumbled, I am not a native speaker

2023.06.08 00:42 HaZalaf Kevin's Last Lie

Author's Note: This story is long. I'm sorry. It really deserves to be told exactly as it happened and therefore, I am forced into murdering brevity. I hope that in time you'll forgive me.
I'm going to tell y'all another stupid story. I should warn you that this one isn't really a comedy, despite being set in a RadioShack.
A few months after Cocaine-Kevin took off for Brazil in pursuit of true love, we got a new transfer employee. We came to call him 'Aikedo-Kevin' (I'm adding the -Kevin because this is a subreddit about Kevins.)
We called him 'Aikedo' because we met him before the final act of the following chain of events took place and afterwards we just didn't have the motivation to attach anything else to him.
When I replay what happened in my head, it astounds me that this took place at all. I mean, we had our fair share of Kevins at RadioShack. There was Cocaine-Kevin, (whom you've previously met.) Crazy-Kevin, 'TP' Kevin, Kevin the Customer, and Kevin the Destroyer. Every one of these people occupy space in my brain for various reasons, but out of all these Kevins, Aikedo-Kevin is the most memorable. And not for the reason you'd most expect.
As if he represented the cosmic opposite to the Kevin he was replacing, this new Kevin came across as competent. He was older and well-kept. He didn't smell at all like sun-dried squirrel and rather than being cartoonishly fat, he was worryingly thin. He looked surprisingly normal for a RadioShack employee; completely trustworthy, certainly like the guy you'd confidently go to to get your Questions Answered.
Looking at him, I would never have believed in a million years that he would be the most profligate serial liar that I've ever had the misfortune to meet.
I know that I should start this tale at the beginning; with the story of how he got his name, but I really don't have the space, so instead we'll just rollercoaster through this cascade of events much like I did originally.
Almost from the moment Kevin showed up, things got real weird, real fast. He lasted for about six months with us, but they were unforgettable. It started with Kevin telling us that he was a 'triple-stripe; dragon-class' black belt in aikedo. Then he told us that he met Kiss back in the 70's and they invited him back to their hotel to party. Then the lies got egregious. He was late because there was a riot at Publix. Someone else ate the food that I had clearly marked and labelled in the back fridge. His dad was in the CIA and helped plan Vietnam with Henry Kissinger. He didn't know why the drawer was short $5.34. He was allergic to fruit. The list was long and got progressively weirder as the weeks went by, but it was generally innocuous; innocent.
But then he fucked up. He told a lie about NASA. Guys, this was a RadioShack. We were all nerds of various stripes, with varying areas of scientific interest and knowledge. There was NO possibility in any universe that one could just traipse into my RadioShack and successfully lie about NASA. Especially this particular lie. There was even less of a possibility that upon hearing such a lie spoken, any of us RadioShack employees would let it go unchallenged.
Ok, now that all the foreshadowing is out of the way, let me get down to the meat. I mean, that's why you're still here, right?
This chain of events spanned three days and it began in the way these things always do; somewhat accidentally.
It was a normal Florida afternoon for everyone who didn't work at my store. As usual, I came in on second (closing) shift. I was taking over from Kevin, who'd just returned from his vacation. The drawer was missing $5.34. Again? Wtf? He 'fixed' it while I was in the back re-counting it. Okay. $5.34? This is so weird. I have to report this shit.
While waiting for his wife to pick him up, Kevin told me that he and his family had had a blast in Cape Canaveral. That he was able to take his son into the 'anti-gravity chamber' at NASA. He went into great detail about how they 'flew around in the tunnel.'
Now, y'all... I'm not an idiot. I very well know how NASA trains their astronauts in Zero-G. Fuck it, I'll bite.
"Uh, Kevin, they use planes to simulate zero-gravity. What are you talking about?"
He shook his head conspiratorially and said, "No, they have secret pods. There's two. One in Huntsville, Alabama, and one at Cape Canaveral. It's top-secret. I have a friend."
I stood there transfixed as Kevin embellished his experiences at NASA a bit more, making sure I knew how cool it was that his kids got to meet all the astronauts and how big the pod really was (almost as big as the Pentagon) until his wife finally showed up and they left.
I think I took a minute before going back inside. I had to call Frank (our store manager) to report the drawer discrepancy. And if I'm being honest, I also wanted to inform him of NASA's Pentagon-sized secret. We were all getting sick of Kevin's fibs, but nobody had really said anything to him yet and I knew Frank was a huge NASA fan. Repeating to him what Kevin had said was tantamount to lighting off firecrackers at a funeral, and at that age, I just wanted to watch the world burn.
Frank answered on the first ring, as I knew he would if the store was calling him.
"Heeeyyyyy, Frank. So. My drawer was short $5.34 again. Kevin somehow fixed it. He also went to the, uh, secret anti-gravity pod at NASA while he was at Cape Canaveral."
Frank laughed. There was a long pause. Then he snarled.
"What? Your drawer was short?! I'm DONE with this!" Frank hung up. I looked down at the phone. Dang. Frank is a terrible force for truth in the universe. I knew this from painful personal experience.
I got a call at 5 am to come in early; that Kevin couldn't open. Whatever. More money for me. I rolled out of bed.
When I got there, Frank was behind the counter pacing and literally purple. I've never seen a human being that color before. He looked like an engorged eggplant preparing for a Kanly duel.
I was putting my stuff away in the back when Frank stomped in behind me. He was hollering about gravity and idiots and I realized immediately that Kevin was in major, major trouble.
A frission tickled its way through my central nervous system. Fear or anticipation? Uncertain. Frank could be terrifying. Alternately, Frank could be compassionate. Frank was a real street-dude; a living tragedy-to-triumph, rags-to-riches kind of guy. He was also a VERY understanding boss. He basically only had three rules: 'Don't fuckin' steal,' 'Don't bring your personal fuckery to the store,' and, most importantly, 'Don't EVER fuckin' LIE to me.'
Those are exact quotes and he lived up to them. I know this. And now you all know this too. Kevin should have known this, but Kevin lived life on the edge.
In the backroom, I squared my shoulders and pretended to be uninterested while watching Frank's face pulse with incandescent rage.
"What's up?" I ventured, trying to hide my curiosity.
Frank exploded like something you shouldn't microwave. His purple face rippled as he tried to roll his eyes and snort simultaneously. He looked for all the world like an indignant water buffalo. Which is funny really. See, big game hunters will tell you that despite looking slow and stupid, the water buffalo is one of the most dangerous animals on Earth. African buffalo will lay traps. They will actually double back to lie in wait to hunt their hunter. And, much like the animal he resembled, Frank too was dangerous and known for his traps.
He smiled at me ferally.
"Kevin called out this morning. Apparently his cousin the St. Petersburg cop got shot last night in a drug raid."
"What does that have to do with NASA?" I said stupidly.
Frank stared at me like I was the only Red Gal in the Blue Man Group.
"I busted Kevin last night for theft." Frank said slowly, with that owlish look he saved for especially thick customers.
Okaaaay "But, what does tha-" I stopped, the light bulb over my head starting to flicker.
"Oh." I said.
Frank was still staring at me, perhaps waiting for my brain to finish its loading sequence. Accurately concluding that I was operating somewhat below dial-up speed, he sighed impatiently and continued.
"My wife called the hospital just now. They don't have anyone by the name of (Kevin's cousin's name) on file there. She called two other hospitals just to be sure."
I just looked at him blankly. "Waaaait. what?!" My mental bulb finally snapped on and flared brightly. Oh shiiit. My brain is furiously connecting dots. Did he lie to get un-caught for thieving? Is that a even a thing? Wtf?
Frank nodded grimly and picked up the phone. He dialed Kevin's number.
Unfortunately for this story, I had a customer walk in right then and therefore didn't hear what was said. Customers can be the most annoying things in the world sometimes. This one probably wasn't, but I don't remember because all I could think about was Kevin's career suicide. It seemed like an eternity passed before I was able to rejoin Frank in his investigation.
In the time I was away, Frank had learned two things: the first thing being that no cops had been shot according to the news, (which Kevin countered by claiming that the news wouldn't report a cop being shot in an on-going investigation,) and the second thing being that no hospital in the tri-county area had admitted anyone matching his cousin's name, (which Kevin dismissed by saying that secrecy was standard operating procedure in a 'Full Blackout' situation and that it's all put in place to protect a wounded cop's identity.
It was a testament to Frank's determination that he was able to do all this so quickly. Especially since this all happened back in the 90's before the sum of human knowledge was only a smartphone click away.
This inanity went on for my entire shift. Frank sending his wife to check out hospitals while he alternately called the local newspapers, TV stations, and Kevin.
Frank was terrifying in his pursuit of truth and I have to admit, it was a thing of beauty to watch him put his case together. Perry Mason be damned; Frank was on an investigative roll. But no matter what he learned, when he called Kevin, Kevin had an answer to it. A detailed answer. He went into specifics about how the bullet (9mm) hit his cousin's vest and richocheted off of a rib. He explained how it was a 'cartel case,' and everything has to be kept hush-hush. It was quite entertaining, if schadenfreude is your thing. It's not mine. I can't really explain how uncomfortable the whole thing made me feel. Like chewing on cotton. There's no way Kevin keeps his job. Kevin has the survival skills of a suicide bomber and the critical thinking skills of a cabbage. It was plain as day that Kevin was a drowning man grasping desperately for an anchor.
Finally, my shift ended and I went home mentally exhausted on Kevin's behalf.
As I left, I could see Frank behind the counter, still on the phone, hyper-focused, and absolutely intent upon some mission objective that I apparently wasn't cleared for. He told me just to be ready to close the next day.
I woke up haunted with the strange certain knowledge that disaster was nigh. Maybe it was the same instinct that allows animals to sense an earthquake before it strikes. I really don't know. I felt both uncomfortable and giddy as I readied myself for work.
When I pulled into the RadioShack, I saw that Frank's Jeep was there. So was Frank's wife's SUV. Kevin's car was nowhere to be seen.
Oh boy... this was not a good sign. I parked and went in. Immediately I could see Frank, his wife, and the employee who had opened huddled furtively together behind the counter. No customers in sight.
Excellent, I thought. Maybe I'll finally get some Answers. This IS a RadioShack, after all, right?
As I counted in my drawer, the preliminary results of Frank's investigation poured out: allegedly Kevin had been taking money from the drawer to get McDonalds for lunch. The amount ($5.34) matched perfectly with the meal Kevin was observed eating each day that he worked. No one knew why he did this. He very obviously brought his lunch in from home every morning.
Frank was a-twitter with anticipatory fury as he spoke. After the conversation he'd had with Frank the previous night, Kevin had slyly switched shifts with another employee to avoid having to open and therefore face Frank. Which, of course, had jacked Frank's temper over from red to plaid. Kevin daring to dodge him like this was simply the last straw, and he had decided he was going to fire Kevin. ...Except, despite trying all morning, he hadn't managed to actually reach Kevin to give him the news.
Frank being Frank, this had in no way deterred him. He had simply looked in Kevin's employee file and called the emergency contact. By the time I walked in, the proverbial shit had hit the fan and was well on its ballistic arc towards us in the form of Kevin's wife.
Yall. It's really important for this story that you have a mental picture of Kevin's wife. Essential, even.
Do y'all remember that 90's song 'All Star' by that band Smashmouth? Remember the lead singer? If you don't, it's okay. Just picture Guy Fieri instead. Now picture Guy Fieri/the Smashmouth dude dressed up as Xena: Warrior Princess. That's what she looked like. She was enormous. Not necessarily fat, but big. I bet she could crush a watermelon with her thighs, easy. (That's really a thing, by the way. You should probably Google it. Fuck it, here ya go )
Anyway, 'Xena' was surprised to hear that Kevin wasn't at work. She was even more stunned by what Frank had to say.
At roughly the same time this phone conversation was taking place at the RadioShack, another, weirder conversation was taking place in person across town. Out of exasperation, and to out-manuever Kevin completely, Frank had finally just sent his wife down to the police station...
...which went something like this: she walked in, and asked if any cops had been shot recently. I imagine there was a pregnant pause at the reception desk while it was hurriedly determined whether or not she was a threat or a crazy person. She asked again and was told that no, no one had been shot recently. She then asked to speak with Officer (Kevin's Cousin's Name) and lo and behold! he happened to be walking by at that exact moment, un-wounded, ambulatory, and utterly confused as to why anybody thought he'd been shot in the first place.
Perched behind the counter in the RadioShack, listening to Frank and his wife list the steps they had taken and the results of taking said steps, I actually felt kind of bad for Kevin. I mean, why would he do this?
Why would anyone make up such a ridiculous lie? What did he have to gain? And most mysteriously, why was he stealing to buy lunch when he brought his own lunch in? The whole thing was steeped in bizarre absurdity and I was beginning to lose perspective of the situation when the door-chime dinged and Kevin walked contritely into the store, followed by his strapping virago of a wife.
Y'all. Holy shit. I don't think that I will be able to properly describe what followed but I will do my best.
When I was a kid, there was a cartoon I saw once. Maybe it was part of a Disney movie, maybe a Bugs Bunny short, I don't really remember. But in it, a ginormous nanny-type woman drags a teensy man into a room by his ear to force him to apologize for something.
That's almost exactly what happened. Xena frog-marched Kevin into the RadioShack and made him apologize for stealing. She literally made him hand over an envelope with $600 in it. (The amount Frank calculated Kevin had stolen over six months.) And then she berated him for breaking the diet she had set for him.
I'm going to say that again. He broke the diet she had set for him. This ... veritable Amazon of a woman had set a caloric limit for this dude who was already so skinny that he could likely crawl through the holes in a chain-link fence. All of a sudden, it all made sense. All of it. Kevin was emasculated, hence the lies. Kevin was desperate and fucking starving, so he stole to feed himself. I was wrestling with my new-found understanding of all things Kevin when she told us the envelope was all of his 'allowance' money. At this point, I was entirely speechless. I could only gape witlessly at her.
Stealing a glance back at Frank, I could tell he was going through the very same emotional turmoil as I was.
In the uncomfortable silence, Kevin handed over his keys and mumbled something about it being great working with us and then they left.
With the possible exception of the first time I saw the cemetary scene in Steel Magnolias, I have never gone from one emotional extreme to the other so quickly. Where I had been affronted by his actions only minutes earlier, now I felt unimaginable regret and I could tell Frank felt the same way. Frank had held back from revealing that he'd had his wife visit the police station and he never even brought it up. He looked deflated; all the energy and momentum of the chase gone, replaced by utter shock and remorse.
Y'all, I bet you thought this story was going to have a happy ending. Or at least a funny one. I'm sorry to disappoint you. No happy ending here, just a cloudy moral lesson.
Kevin was fired and we never saw him again, though I insisted that Frank's wife go back down to the police station and tell Kevin's cousin everything we'd seen and heard. I felt that I owed him that much, being responsible for the initial phone call that had set everything in motion.
Yes, Frank and I learned much and more that day. That experience changed something in me. I'd like to think I'm a better person now.
Oh, I still laugh at Kevins, but I don't assume anything anymore. Oh, no. I've learned that everyone has a truth to tell, even if it comes swaddled in lies.

2023.06.08 00:42 feistylilly84 IBgard... has it worked for you?

Who has tried IBgard? I started using it about a month ago per my doctor's recommendation. When I took it as directed on the box, it did NOTHING for me. I felt like I wasted my money. But, I realized that my IBS flares, often hit in the morning. Sometimes before I even wake up. So, I decided to try taking the IBgard at night and first thing in the morning when I wake up. It started helping! I had fewer flares and they weren't as bad, when they did happen. I also have PCOS, so I drink spearmint tea. But it makes me sleepy, so I started drinking it at night. Miraculously, that seems to fortify the IBgard. They seem to work really well together! I was having flare up almost every day. Now, I'm having them about once a week and that's really only on days that I didn't take the IBgard and spearmint tea. (I intentionally do that once a week to let my system completely empty out, otherwise I constantly feel like there's stuff in there.)
Has anyone else tried IBgard? Have you tried it in combination with anything else? Any good results?

2023.06.08 00:42 tunrk2017 What have you done with curly hair for a wedding?

What have you done with curly hair for a wedding?
I’m not sure if this is the right subreddit but I didn’t get an answer on the curly hair subreddit so I’m going to try here just in case.
TLDR: Don’t know what to do with curly hair for wedding, looking to see what others did or saw.
I’m getting married next year and I have no idea what to do for my hair. Typically when I wash and style my hair I just try to move my hair to whatever side I want it on and then let it dry. So my styling is not always consistent, but most of the time I’m okay with how it looks the day after washing.
I have thought about getting my hair washed and styled the morning of the wedding, but my hair appointments typically take 2.5 hours for a cut, wash, and style which is even without the cut might be like an hour. But I’m not really sure I can style my hair myself either since I’m not very good at things like sectioning my hair or braiding.
So I’m wondering what have other people done or seen for weddings.
Here are the options that I’m considering and wanted some feedback on how well it went for others.
1) Pay someone to wash/style my hair the morning of.
2) Wash and style my hair myself to look similar to the pictures I’ve included.
3) Get my hair washed and styled the day before and then refresh it the day of to look the way I want it to.
I’ve included pictures of how I’m thinking of styling my hair and what my hair currently looks like.
I’m not really considering straightening and then curling my hair because it takes forever to straighten my hair flat. I’m also planning on wearing a tiara and veil if that effects the type of hairstyle I can have.

2023.06.08 00:42 Maximum_Employer5580 For any of you upset at traffic on IH35 today.....

I'm sure plenty of people were mad about this, but it was for a good cause, so suck up your complaining and appreciate something good being done for kids who are battling disease
This morning Austin Police Department teamed up with @SunshineKidsOrg, an organization that helps children battling cancer, by giving the kids a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enjoy a police-escorted cruise to the Capitol in the most incredible rides ever.
IH35 is the bane of our existence to many of us, but if you get mad about something good being done for kids suffering from disease, then you are one pathetic individual

2023.06.08 00:39 Worth_Substance6590 Help me settle a debate with my husband: do I deserve a break?

My husband works a full time office job and I’m a SAHM to a 10 month old. He usually sleeps 8pm-6am but sometimes wakes up and needs to be rocked to sleep. The arrangement my husband and I have is that I sleep in our room with LO and my husband sleeps in the guest room so he can get a full nights sleep. Then on weekend nights I sleep in the guest room so I can sleep through the night. Since I’m on ‘duty’ 5 nights, I sometimes get overwhelmed when LO won’t go back to sleep (sometimes takes an hour and he sometimes wakes up 2-3x/night) so I ask my husband to take over. This happens about once/week or not at all.
During the day LO takes 3 hours of naps total during which time I shower, eat lunch quickly, and then do chores. Cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc. I know I should take a break but then it piles up and I have to do it eventually anyway so I just do it while he naps. My husband and I agreed that after LO goes to bed, him and I take 30 mins or so to finish any chores that weren’t done during the day, so I can start the next day with a clean slate.
This is what the argument is about. I had to put my husband on duty Sunday and Monday night around 3am since LO wasn’t sleeping well. My husband spent about 20 minutes putting him back to sleep and then slept til morning. Last evening, we decided to not do chores and just go to sleep in case LO slept poorly. So today, I started the day with piles of laundry to wash and fold, a sink full of dishes, etc. I needed to make food for lunch and couldn’t bc everything was dirty. I don’t know how it all piled up so fast but it just happens as you probably know.
LO was extremely cranky and crying unless I was rocking him. It was really unusual but likely a side effect from the vaccine he got yesterday. I didn’t even have time to eat breakfast until 11am. My husband usually makes my breakfast but didn’t today so it was even worse.
I got completely overwhelmed and tried setting the pack n play up in the kitchen to put LO in it while I cleaned but it wouldn’t open, it ripped while I was trying to open it, and I ended up literally throwing it outside. I was extra angry because I wanted to childproof the house pre-LO bc I knew we wouldn’t have time after he was born (I was right) and had we done that, I wouldn’t have needed the pack n play.
So I complained to my husband about all of this. Nevertheless, I was able to do all the dishes, wash and fold 2 loads of laundry, cook a complex soup and fried rice meal for dinner, vacuum 2x (we’re experiencing wildfire smoke so I’ve been cleaning like crazy indoors), change the sheets, clean the table and kitchen, and obviously cook and feed LO breakfast lunch and snacks. And keep LO entertained, read to him, etc. I felt really proud of myself for turning the day around and was excited to share the meal with my husband because he was outside in the smoke and these foods are supposed to be good for your immune system and lungs.
So he got home and I had dinner hot on the table and we’re eating, he said nothing about the house being absolutely spotless or anything about the food, but instead said btw, it wasn’t his fault that I had a pile of chores to do today, since we agreed we wouldn’t do them last night. And he said that a few times this past week, while he was doing the dishes in the evening, he saw me sitting on the couch on my phone. Side note, I was sitting because I had worked through all of LO’s naps and felt I deserved at least 20 minutes of relaxing time before I went to bed. I go to bed at 9 and my husband stays up until 10 so he has at least an hour of alone time every night.
That’s what I have a huge issue with, because his job is the dishes, and I work really hard to make sure I do the dishes during the day so that he doesn’t have to in the evenings. I work REALLY hard to ensure as much cleaning as possible is done so he doesn’t have to do it before bed. I even organize and deep clean one room/day and he never notices. The dishes that are left for him are usually just our plates from dinner.
Petty me wants to just say ok, I won’t do any of the dishes anymore or any extra chores during the day. My day job is childcare. But non-petty me would like opinions on this and advice on how to deal with this.
I am hiring a childcare service to take care of childproofing because that’s urgent.

2023.06.08 00:35 blackfyre_94 Issues with apartment complex in North Carolina

Looking for advice on how to handle an issue with my current apartment. A little background, I just renewing my lease which I was hesitant about doing over other issues I've had that have never been probably addressed but with the price of rent in my area I couldn't afford to move elsewhere. Today I woke up to leave work to find a paper in my door for a 5 day late notice in my door for an additional $30 rent fee which also included a $53.50 late fee that was dated for yesterday. I went up to my office today to dispute it but they could not properly explain where the fee was coming from. At first I was told it was because of my pet fee but I was able to counter that with past payment history. Then I was told it was due to renewing my lease and it was from prorated rent but that didn't make since to me. I was also told that at some point there was a $40 credit added to my account at some point and this effected some things but when asking for more clarification as the math didn't add up I was told my the office manager " I don't have time to explain everything" and to get me out of their office they supposedly sent an email to the high up management. I haven't received any sort of update from my complex on the issue as to where the $30 is coming from. From the small amount of research that I have been able to do I've discovered that in the state of NC you are supposed to be provided a 10 day late notice which I was not and when attempting to check the fee through my complex's portal the option to pay the fee is greyed out until the next month's rent is due. I plan to go back to the office tomorrow morning but I feel like it will go about as good as today. What would be my next steps from here as I feel like they are trying to create some fake fee to get a free $80ish out of me.

2023.06.08 00:35 AlexTMichas Four Vans

Four Vans

Four Vans

I’ve had four vans in my life. A green 1978 bus, a white 1968 bus, a blue 1990 Vanagon, and a white 1990 Vanagon, which I drive today. Despite modern van options, my connection to VW buses and van continues to last. Now in my 40s, and with each year passing, my relationship with vans is an evolution filled with memories all of which are inspired by outdoor adventure and the curve of a road less traveled. As I begin this series of posts regarding my relationship to vans, I wanted to start with an overview of these four vans.
Van #1. Europe
When I was just about four years old, my parents decided to move to Europe with us three kids, and a teenage babysitter, who ended up more like a fourth child than the intended caregiver they had planned for. We spent two years there, much of the time in a van, (technically consider a “bus”) traveling across land, visiting relatives along the way.
The bus was shipped back from German to the United States where after a few years my dad sold it to a good friend in Sacramento.l, CA. Nearly 30 years later that same friend called me to ask if I wanted the bus - it was in perfect shape, having been stored in a garage for all those years. I had to decline… I just didn’t have the space and ability to keep it.
Here’s my dad in the late 70’s - I suspect this photo was taken near Lake Tahoe.
Van #2. High school
In high school, I purchased this 1968 air cooled bus… I think I purchased it for about $1500, and drove it about for a few years - no doubt playing Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin and Cat Stevens on a crappy aftermarket stereo. When I tired my hand at rewiring some electrical which led to a catastrophic electrical problem, or seeing one of my wheels roll past me at a neighborhood stop sign shortly after I changed a flat tired, I realized my time as mechanic was short lived.
Van #3. Blueberry
Living in south Berkeley, CA in 2005, I was walking past the Berkeley Bowl, a popular grocery store when I saw a blue Vanagon. Without much thought, my soon-to-be-wife and I purchased what we later named Blueberry, a 1990 Multivan - the roomy van version that sleeps four, seats 7 with belts, but without a kitchen.
On a trip with my dog Cleo, here’s Blueberry, near Mono Lake and the hills along Highway 395.
In La Paz, Mexico, we settled up next to this dilapidated palapa (a traditional Mexican shelter roofed with palm leaves) for several nights, eating fresh fish and snorkeling. You can see our kitchen at the back of the van, and shower bag draped above.
A cold night in Yosemite with good friend. The following morning we fished in the lake just beyond.
Trip to Idaho with our pup Cleo. One of our longer trips for friend’s wedding in Sun Valley.
Kiddos in the loft pop top
Russian Gulch State Park outside Mendocino
Van #4: Luna
When I realized I no longer wanted to go longer distances and Blueberry due to lack of air conditioning and limited power in the hills, I started looking for a van replacement. So at the end of 2021, we purchased another 1990 Multivan in white named Luna. Swapping some of the good stuff from Blueberry, Luna can do everything. It has a rebuilt turbo engine - nearly doubling the power, a propane heater for cold nights, a rebuilt manual transmission, and so many other upgrades - it was just easier to purchase the van I wanted rather than spend the money, hassle, and time upgrading Blueberry.
In Tilden Park
A visit to the light house on Point Reyes in Marin
Muir Beach and a stop at the Pelican Inn in Marin
North of Santa Cruz in Pescadero for a hot chocolate break
I could have spent more on a bigger, more modern van, but I decided to stick with what I know. Simply…. there is nothing like driving a Vanagon.

At San Diego Comic-Con in July, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had other people raising eyebrows when he said that his long-awaited superhero debut in Spider Man Across the Spider Verse would be the beginning of “a new era” for the DC Extended Universe naturally followed: What did he mean? And what would that kind of reset mean for the remainder of DCEU's roster, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the rest of the Justice League, Suicide Squad, Shazam and so on.As
Spider Man Across the Spider Verse neared theaters, though, Johnson clarified that statement in a recent sit-down with Yahoo Entertainment (watch above).
“I feel like this is our opportunity now to expand the DC Universe and what we have in Spider Man Across the Spider Verse , which I think is really cool just as a fan, is we introduce five new superheroes to the world,” Johnson tells us. Aldis Hodge's Hawkman, Noah Centineo's Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell's Cyclone and Pierce Brosnan's Doctor Fate, who together comprise the Justice Society.) “One anti-hero.” (That would be DJ's Spider Man Across the Spider Verse .)
“And what an opportunity. The Justice Society pre-dated the Justice League. So opportunity, expand out the universe, in my mind… all these characters interact. That's why you see in Spider Man Across the Spider Verse , we acknowledge everyone: Batman , Superman , Wonder Woman, Flash, we acknowledge everybody.There's also some Easter eggs in there, too.So that's what I meant by the resetting.Maybe 'resetting' wasn't a good term.only
one can claim to be the most powerful superhero .And Johnson, when gently pressed, says it's his indestructible, 5,000-year-old Kahndaqi warrior also known as Teth-Adam, that is the most powerful superhero in any universe, DC, Marvel or otherwise
. "By the way, it's not hyperbole because we made the movie."And we made him this powerful.
There's nothing so wrong with “Spider Man Across the Spider Verse ” that it should be avoided, but nothing—besides the appealing presence of Dwayne Johnson—that makes it worth rushing out to see. spectacles that have more or less taken over studio filmmaking, but it accumulates the genre's—and the business's—bad habits into a single two- hour-plus package, and only hints at the format's occasional pleasures. “Spider Man Across the Spider Verse ” feels like a place-filler for a movie that's remaining to be made, but, in its bare and shrugged-off sufficiency, it does one positive thing that, if nothing else, at least accounts for its success: for all the churning action and elaborately jerry-rigged plot, there's little to distract from the movie's pedestal-like display of Johnson, its real-life superhero.
It's no less numbing to find material meant for children retconned for adults—and, in the process, for most of the naïve delight to be leached out, and for any serious concerns to be shoehorned in and then waved away with dazzle and noise. Spider Man Across the Spider Verse ” offers a moral realm that draws no lines, a personal one of simplistic stakes, a political one that suggests any interpretation, an audiovisual one that rehashes long-familiar tropes and repackages overused devices for a commercial experiment that might as well wear its import as its title. When I was in Paris in 1983, Jerry Lewis—yes, they really did love him there—had a new movie in theaters. You're Crazy, Jerry."Spider Man Across the Spider Verse " could be retitled 'You're a Superhero, Dwayne'—it's the marketing team's PowerPoint presentation extended to feature length.
In addition to being Johnson's DC Universe debut, “Spider Man Across the Spider Verse ” is also notable for marking the return of Henry Cavill's Superman. The cameo is likely to set up future showdowns between the two characters, but Hodge was completely unaware of it until he saw the film.

2023.06.08 00:32 StainedAndRedeemed A GREAT way to memorize scripture

Hi everyone. A few weeks ago I started doing something with my phone that has been a HUGE blessing and I just wanted to share it with you.
So, I found a resource that will take any scripture verse and make it into a nice phone wallpaper (Only KJV version though). I started downloading some of my favorite verses, and then installed a wallpaper changing program on my phone and set it so that the verses change every hour. Given how often we all look at our phones, this has been a really effective and easy way to help memorize key verses.

Anyway, hope this blesses you guys!

2023.06.08 00:30 GodGaveMeBigBalls Honest question, if allah says that the Torah and Bible were once like the quran uncorrupted does that mean it would be word for word same?

I was thinking. As muslims, they assert that the Torah and the Bible were once akin to the Quran but underwent corruption over the course of history. However, this notion didnt make sense to me because If we were to accept this claim, wouldn't it be expected to find verses within the Torah and the Bible that parallel the ones pertaining to Muhammad's wartime experiences and the specific circumstances of his time? Because all those verses were linked to his experiences, like the marriages, or the wars, or the alcohol then changed the ruling.
It can't be the same because that would make sense.
Maybe the lessons would be the same, I guess?

2023.06.08 00:29 Static-Space-Royalty Mystery girl keeps appearing in my dreams (she seems self aware)

I've been writing down my dreams in an app called Dream Catcher. The dream I had last night seems connected to one I had last July.
Now this is probably going to be a lot to read but quite a few of these details are replicated in the more recent dream so I feel that they're worth mentioning.
The dream that I had last July started with me playing a video game on the Wii U (which makes sense as that was my main game system back in middle school) Then eventually it shifted so that I was in the backseat of my parents car playing the same game (the Wii U is not portable but I digress)
I looked up at the windshield and saw a beautiful girl walking by who was remarkably slender in appearance.
My dad was holding up a DS like a phone and said that I have to reach level 36 to be able to talk with this person.
Then I was sitting outside at a bus stop and that girl asked me if I'd heard of this band which both was and wasn't the Beatles (you know how dreams tend to be)
So we talked about that band for a while and at some point I ended up in a room that looks like the basement that I had fallen asleep in in real life. around this time I was staying at my aunt and uncle's house and sleeping in their basement on a couch that had a big window behind it.
The girl was sitting beside me on the couch instead of the bus stop, she was showing me this phone game via a screen on the wall that looked like a projector screen but with nothing projecting it. She said that you can unlock songs by that band by playing through this game.
The game was one of those ones where you raise a little pet animal, in this case it was a cutesy raccoon.
She told me I needed to unlock something for her. (Something in my head was telling me that I needed to unlock her in this game so she could stay with me)
She looked like an average girl my age and was very beautiful and cute
At some point I went to open the blinds above the couch and the girl started to panic and asked "why are you doing that?"
I said "just to make sure you're not imaginary", she looked sad, disappointed, like what I just said confirmed that none of this was going to work out in their favor.
I opened the blinds and there was nothing but bright white light, which didn't look abnormal or anything, I feel like I've kind of seen that before in real life. She said "what if I am imaginary?"
I said "are you?" she kind of ashamedly nodded yes,
I said "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to" "I can still play the game, I can get to your level"
She said "no, don't, it's over now" At this point I was on the couch beside her and she leaned in to give me a hug.
The whole room was fading to white as if it were the end of a flashback in a movie.
Then I found myself walking back into the room, and she was sitting on the other side of the couch where I was and there's a new girl sitting where she used to sit,
my girl didn't want to fully acknowledge me but kind of looked over with a glance that conveyed
"I don't want to talk to you"
Like she was mad at me for what I did.
the other girl was probably aware that something happened between me and the first girl due to her acting similarly, They looked over at each other,
My girl said "just go, you don't belong here" as the dream was fading to white and I could feel myself waking up I said:
"I'm sorry it had to be this way".
So that was just the first dream that I had a while ago, the one that I just had last night went like this:
This dream also started with me playing the Wii U, both times it was a Super Mario game
A lot of the earlier part of the dream is pretty fuzzy but at some point I ended up walking with that same girl through her neighborhood at night, which looks like it was close to my irl neighborhood but was in a spot where it couldn't exist in real life.
She was telling me about the different houses and said that one of them is where the Beastie boys lived
At this point when I was writing down this dream I started to describe the girl, and I happened to describe her as "remarkably slender" just as I did when I wrote down the first dream (without realizing that was how I previously described her)
I said she looked like an average girl my age but was very beautiful.
I can still picture her face.
Within the dream I couldn't remember where I'd met her. She kind of felt like a childhood friend that I'd recently reunited with. Within the dream I was actually intending on asking her how we had met.
At some point I think she realized that it was getting so late that she should go home. (I think that happened before this next part) A portion of the night sky opened up, well I guess it more looked it turned pink as if a movie projector was shining on it, and some character that I could only assume to be the girl's father appeared
I am retroactively picturing her father as the king of all Cosmos from the katamari games.
He said it is time (my child?) to return to the world of toys, a child's room where everything is a toy. (He really hammered in the point that they're all toys) my girl looked at me with eyes that conveyed that her secret was out.
(So it's worth noting that both of these dreams point out that this girl isn't real, because she was explicitly stated to be imaginary in the first one, then she was explicitly stated to be a living toy in the second one) ("living toy" in the Toy Story sense I guess, not like a robot)
We turned and walked towards her house. She explained that every morning she always has to go back to her world in which she's a toy.
When we got to her house it was kind of like one of those houses that used to be a camper and was converted into an actual house.
The girl said "I have to go back now" and walked through the screen door which I guess was some kind of a portal or barrier between the worlds, she literally walked through it without opening it.
I asked her if we could hug through the portal.
We both reached out to hug but I couldn't reach my arms through, but she could, so she hugged me very tightly and then said good bye.
That's the end of the dream.
While I was looking through that app where I have written down my dreams in I even found two other instances of meeting "some girl" in a dream, I hadn't even realized that until reading through them earlier today.
one was just an offhand mention that probably didn't mean anything.
And in the other dream her and I were both young kids, in a play center.
I don't know if it was the same imaginary girl in those two instances but they were worth mentioning nonetheless.
Could anyone figure out what's going on here?
Why do I keep having dreams about this same imaginary girl?
What could this mean / say about me?

Context: You were a simple henchperson for the villain Agelast. He was as cruel as his title would suggest, but you remained loyal to him. When his ship was struck by a missile, you went down with it, finding your Master unconscious in the wreckage. While the other henchpeople fled, you remained loyal, dragging him from said wreckage and staying by him as he recovered in your makeshift cabin. After months, he's finally woken up, but... he doesn't seem quite himself.
Setting: The battleship/a makeshift cabin

[A] = Agelast aka Asher, your Master and reknowned supervillain
[H1] = Henchman 1, not so sure about this
[H2] = Henchman 2, REALLY not sure about this
[Scene opens in…?]
[SFX: An alarm blaring]
[A] Henchmen, to the board! All henchmen, report at once! We are under attack and I expect you all to be good little meat shields and protect me!
[SFX: Lots of people running/general chaos]
[A] Missile inbound! Rrgh, if those fools think they can harm me-!
[SFX: A door hissing open and more running]
[A] What?! Henchman 38, get to your post, immediately!
[A] What? How dare you not listen to your orders! You think I can’t survive the missile? I am Agelast, one of the most powerful villains on the planet! Worry about your own worthless little life and-!
[SFX: A massive explosion]
[Long Pause (Distorted Silence]

[H1] Thirty-eight?! Thirty-eight! You’re on the other side of the wreckage!
[H2] What?! You’re with the Boss?
[H1] You mean that crazy bastard is still alive?! Or… undead?!
[H2] …Uhh… Sorry, no way, you’re on your own, Thirty-Eight!
[H1] Yeah… The Boss is kind of a massive dick and we’re taking the opportunity to run for it. Best of luck to you, though!
[Long Pause (Seasons Changing)]
[You’re left with no choice, really. You can abandon your Master with the wreckage… but you drag him into the forest and salvage what you can. The advanced tech lets you build a cabin within a month or so]
[SFX: Birds chirping/Spring]
[Long Pause (Repeat)]
[SFX: Cicadas chirping/Summer]
[Long Pause (Repeat)]
[SFX: Dry wind and leaves/Fall]
[Scene opens in a cabin/cottage living room]
[SFX: Fire crackling]
[Seasons later, you are putting more firewood in the hearth while the wind rages outside. You’ve been on your own for months now, save for your unconscious Master]
[SFX: Cloth rustling]
[You jump as strong arms encase you from behind]
[A] “Hi sweetie… Good morning. Eugh, I feel like I’ve been asleep for ages…”
[Your Master, and one of the most wicked men on the planet, kisses your shoulder]
[A] “Mmh, you’re all cold from being out without a robe… I’ll get you a robe next time we’re out, mmkay? I’m sure we can find something nearby, even on vacation.”
[He frowns, pulling you closer to him]
[A] “... ‘My lord’? Darling, we just woke up. Are you trying to seduce me so early?”
[His lips curl into a smirk as you shiver]
[A] “Because I won’t lie… I’m kind of enjoying the boldness, my sweet. My teeth are already trembling to taste that fragile little neck…”
[SFX: The Listener stepping a few feet away]
[He frowns as you scurry back from him. Even gentle, he’s as imposing as ever]
[A] “What do I remember? How do you mean?”
[He sighs and gestures toward the small kitchen]
[SFX: The chairs scooting by themselves]
[A] “Let me just call the chairs over for a moment… There. Sit with me.”
[You obey, as always]
[SFX: Coffee brewing]
[A] “What do I remember… Well, I remember our life together in splendorous, wonderful detail… You were hard-won, my love. I truly had to bring my best to woo you away from all the others desperate to claim you. You were so unsure, at first, but the moment I got you to smile at that silly little convention… I knew you were mine.”
[A] “Recruitment? To become a minion of mine?”
[He laughs at this, gesturing for the cups to float over]
[SFX: The cups sitting themselves down]
[A] “Here, your coffee. Just how you like it.”
[You taste it. It is exactly how you like it]
[A] “Oh, you’re welcome, dearest. Now… what is all of this about minions and recruitment?”
[You try and explain to him that he is a villain. One of the world’s most wanted and you are nothing to him but one of his henchmen. One of his disposable minions. He rests his chin in one hand, listening with ravenous eyes]
[Long Pause (Listener explanation)]
[A] “Mmh… So, I am a villain named Agelast, wanted the world over. You were a henchperson that was aboard my ship when it was hit by a missile. You found me unconscious in the wreckage, dragged me somewhere safe, built this cabin from what you could salvage, and tended to me until I woke up, months and months later?”
[He ponders this for a moment before he smiles dreamily]
[A] “Alright… Your little ‘roleplay’ ideas are always fun, but if you want me to pretend to be a villain…”
[A, putting on ‘the voice’] “How dare you argue with the mighty Agelast, you worthless peon!”
[You shiver. Why does the voice have to be so strong]
[He lowers his voice, concerned]
[A] “You’re not a worthless peon, I swear, I’m just acting.”
[A] “...No, I don’t remember being a decorated, apocalypse-loving villain. I remember being a businessman at a convention that fell madly, desperately in love with a cute little human that smiled at me while helping me pick up the business cards I spilled on accident.”
[His smile deepens, a little deranged]
[A] “I remember following that same human like a lovesick puppy… for months. Even years. We always found ourselves at the same place, at the same time. Then again, I always did my best to make sure I kept you to myself…”
[He beckons you forward and your chair all but vaults you into his lap]
[SFX: The chair doing a yeet maneuver]
[A] “There we are… Telekinesis is so fun, isn’t it? Being a vampire does have oh-so-many perks… One gesture and you’re thrown right into my lap.”
[His strong arms close around you again. This time, you’re staring right into his eyes]
[A] “Gods, you’re beautiful… but your neck is sorely lacking in my little love bites… Hm.”
[He frowns, fingers running through your hair]
[A] “...Can’t have that, dearest. No, no, no… You know how I get when someone else looks at you. Thinks about you…”
[He smiles again, in his own world]
[A] “Oh, love… These hands tremble when they can’t touch you. My fangs ache when they can’t taste you. My skin boils when it can’t touch you! I do love this little rescue scenario you came up with for us~.”
[His lips touch your neck while you try and figure out what to do next. Of all your interactions with Agelast, affection was the last thing you were expecting]
[SFX: The Listener being bitten]
[You gasp and tense as his fangs sink into your neck]
[A] “Mmh, oh! Oh, your blood… Shh, hold still, hold still, dear… You know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, hm?”
[He holds you close, rubbing your back as he feeds. None of this right. This isn’t your villainous overlord]
[A, with a quiet moan] “Oh, love… You are exquisite, in every single way. I love you, so, so much…”
[A] “Hmhm, come now, my sweetest obsession… I’ll be your villain if that’s how you want to spend the day. Or we could go and explore the local forests, maybe even the nearby town? Hmm?”
[You… guess you’re going to go see the town with..?]
[He chuckles]
[A] “What name to call me when I’m not ‘Agelast’? Hmhm… Asher, love. My normal first name is just fine.”
[...You guess you’re going to town with Asher…]
[A] “Beautiful~. Come, join me in the bath, and then we can set off for the day.”
[SFX: The chair scooting back as he stands, carrying the Listener]
[A] “I do hope you’ll forgive me for getting a bit handsy, hmhm.”
[...You have serious doubts that the employee handbook would permit this but… he did write the handbook…]
[To be continued]

2023.06.08 00:27 Oncewasaworker Karen cuts the weekend hours and then gets MC with the boss.

So I have read similar things here before but thought i would share my story.
Karen (my previous post was partially about her as well) was a manager of all the small departments like Reception, security, stores, company records, IT etc. What I know about Karen is this. She left school at 15-16 worked in a supermarket. Got a job at our firm as a front desk receptionist for about two years before been promoted to the managers role of small departments. She has some sort of relationship with one of company's directors. Unsure what the relationship is and some speculate uncle or good family friend. She was manager for four years in that role.
Our company worksite has about 300 workers, 80 support staff (Karen is in charge) , some technical departments and management. Karen who is quite young and not very educated runs the second biggest department (lots of small departments). I was the union delegate and one Friday about 4pm a bunch of staff come to me and tell Karen is cutting weekend hours for the support staff in a money saving bid. I tell them not to worry as they are all contracted to work 8 hours and the firm must pay you anyway.
Come the weekend and chaos reigns. Support staff are only working four hours as instructed and production grinds to a slow pace without the support staff. Monday morning at 9am the union rings the general manager to ensure that staff will be paid for 8 hours even though they were instructed to work 4 hours only. Apparently, the general manager was also inundated with complaints from the weekend managers about lack of support staff causing production delays. Karen gets yelled at big time by the general manager.
Karen however called her company director friend who informs Karen by been yelled at, that breached the firms work safety rules. Karen lodges a complaint with HR. Karen is put on six weeks paid leave and the manager gets a warning. All the staff who worked 4 hours got paid 8 hours.
