Late one night a police officer was patrolling a desolate area popular with young couples doing more than just sitting in the dark.
Catching his attention was a couple in a car with the interior light on. Moving closer, the cop could see a young man behind the steering wheel reading a newspaper. In the backseat a young blonde was knitting.
The lawman walked up to the vehicle and knocked on the driver-side window. The startled lad rolled it down and said, “Yes, Officer?”
“What are you doing?” the cop asked.
“Isn’t it obvious?” the young man replied. “I’m reading today’s newspaper.”
Pointing to the blonde in the backseat, the policeman grunted, “And what’s she doing?”
“I believe she’s knitting a sweater,” the guy behind the wheel responded.
“How old are you?” the cop inquired.
“I’m 22, Officer.”
“And the girl—how old is she?”
The dude in the driver’s seat looked at his watch and said, “She’ll turn 18 in ten minutes.”

YSK Airbnb’s are allowed to have cameras in “common” areas meaning living rooms,kitchens, etc. The host must mention the use of cameras under the “House Rules” section of the booking page.
There are many cases of people finding cameras within their Airbnb’s. Sometimes, these are mentioned in the booking process, but other times they are not. Be careful when booking an Airbnb and always check for cameras upon entering your room.

My girlfriend and I have recently let my good childhood friend move into our spare bedroom in our apartment, along with his longtime girlfriend. All of us are early to mid twenties. We split rent down the middle, each couple is responsible for 50% of the rent and how they ration that 50% between them isn't our deal.
Overall there haven't been many problems, but the girlfriend is really getting on my nerves. While she hasn't done anything outright rude, she frequently twists what I say to make it sound like I'm verbally abusing my girlfriend, and starts arguments with me almost once a night when I try to correct her about something. The other night she mentioned how she liked Lovecraft and Lovecraftian horror, and when I told her that a lot of Lovecraftian horror is based on DnD lore (poorly phrased I'll admit), she immediately told me that I was "extremely and absolutely wrong" and spent ten minutes arguing with me, eventually pulling up sources and shoving her phone down my t

It doesnt matter if you grow up in the hood or rough area of town, you can still make the conscious decision to not be a delinquent.
Sorry for weird format, I am on mobile.
I see this a lot in my city( I live in Regina Saskatchewan) were kids that my friends are friends with that are in gangs or are doing bad shit ie selling drugs in their highschool, beating up other kids for fun etc. And whenever I ask them, " why be friends with them if they do all this bad shit?" And they say something along the lines of "it's not their fault" or "they're just growing up in a rough area" or "they have it rough at home". And all of those I can understand, but you dont need too be and asshole if you grow up in a rough area. You dont need to be in a gang if you grow up without a dad or a mom or you grow up in a rough area. You can make the decision in you mind to not be a useless drug dealing piece of shit.

COVID19 - Officially confirmed at BOTH the Fidelity and Charles Schwab Call Centers in Westlake, TX (DFW area) as of today
Zero bullshit in this post. Both companies just sent home two or three employees a piece who tested positive for Covid. They also sent home "anybody that came into contact with them."
They are NOT however, sending everybody home or closing the campuses bc quote, "They are sanitizing the infected area." Covid about to spread through two major regional centers of two major financial services companies (Fidelity has moved a lot of regional leadership roles from around the country to their Dallas area campus and Schwab is in the same process).
Do with this what you will but literally just talked to friends who work for both companies and in both call centers and, again, neither call center is shutting anything down or doing anything serious to contain the spread. They're basically saying, "We discovered the infected and sent them home and that will stop it right there." They are also telling employees not to be concerned and they are unable to test more than a handful of employees.

People who lack respect for cops dont deserve to live in an area protected by them.
Look reddit quit circlejerking for a moment. Yes, there are bad cops. Theres also embezzling CEOs, waiters who steal, cashiers who shoplift, mechanics who scam. But we as an overall society dont associate the actions of a few to the entirety of the many. And those positions do not face job related risks of death or serious injury to the extent that cops go to. Cops know exactly how they are perceived. Do you honestly think they like being perceived that way because of the few bad eggs? But they still put their lives on the line. Yes they make mistakes. Yea, those mistakes are bigger. But they put themselves into higher risk scenarios regularly with higher stakes than the vast vast majority of other professions. Because of the fact that cops exist in an area that alone can reduce crime. If you dont respect the officers who passively keep you safe even if they dont do it personally, then you dont deserve the benefit of that protection. The world aint perfect but if you dont respect cops

The company was very happy with my work and ended up sending me a job offer. No competing offers, 9 months experience, no internships in college.
Base salary: $90,000, Total compensation: $103,000-109,000

Lauren Thompson, 32, disappeared January 10, 2019 in a rural area near Rockhill, Texas, after making a frantic call to her mother and 911. She claimed she was being chased—and then the phone went dead. What happened to Lauren?
Lauren Elizabeth Colvin Thompson went missing on January 10, 2019 from Rockhill, Panola County, Texas. At the time she was 32 years old, approximately 5’5, had brown hair and brown eyes, and was wearing dark leggings and a dark hoodie.
She called her mother at 2:04 p.m. and asked to talk to her children. Thompson’s mother reported that Thompson sounded frantic. When she was told that her two eldest children were at school and her youngest was sleeping, Thompson told her mother to tell her children and her father that she loved them. She also apologized, saying she was sorry and that if she got “out of this,” she’d “never do drugs again.” During the phone call, Thompson’s mother thought she heard a man’s voice telling Thompson that she didn’t need to be making a phone call, and then Thompson yelled at the man that she had to tell her children and mother she loved them. The phone call ended.
Twenty minutes later, Thompson called 911. The call has not been released to
