AITA for continuing to sit on my porch and drink beer like usual even though my neighbor is having a women’s only yoga classes in our shared backyard now?

So when I get home from work I go and sit on my back porch and drink a beer or two. I just enjoy the sun and fresh air while I stare off into space.

I actually share the backyard with another other unit (duplex situation). The couple that lives there got permission from our landlord to use the yard to have yoga and other exercise sessions since their indoor studio space is being closed again.

They have these classes around the same time that because it’s a convenient time for a lot of other people too. Two times a week (Wednesday and Friday) the lesson is women’s only.

One of my neighbors came over after their lesson last Friday. She was very non confrontational when she approached me. She acknowledged that I had every right to sit there and it wasn’t a problem on their coed class days, but said that the women felt uncomfortable with my presence during the women’s only classes and are no longer wanting to attend. She explained that these are their most popular classes and the ones where they makes most of their money and they can’t afford to lose more clients.

While I understood that I really didn’t want to give up my little outdoor time two days a week. So, I continued to chill on the porch like I always do.

On Wednesday the class was already setting up and the women were all chatting. Not long after I sat down my other neighbor (not the same one that talked to me the first time) came over. She was a lot more stern than the first one when she asked me to wait to come out til they’re done. I get a little nervous when people are mad at me so I apologized and told her I really need this time to unwind.

She asked me if I didn’t think that these women need this time too. That they live just as stressful lives and need to be able to feel safe here and not like some drunk guy is gawking at them while they’re in tight clothes and vulnerable poses. I’m really not trying to stare at them though. I usually just stare off into space and their right in front of my porch, so I guess it looks like I am. I also don’t drink enough to get drunk. Usually just one beer. Although sometimes more on Fridays.

Like I said I’m not really good at dealing with people when their mad at me, so I ended up just apologizing again. She just stared at me. Eventually she said I “just didn’t get it” and walked away. I could hear both of them apologizing to the women there. In the end most of them left though. While they continued the class with the two people that remained I could

You want to grow the game of baseball? Make the beer $5.

Ok here’s a rant. There’s so much talk about how to grow the MLB’s fan base. We watch in horror as Manfred guts the game to try to “speed it up” and make it more “engaging”, and not only will it fail, it will turn away old school fans.

Want to get more people to like baseball?? Make the beer $5. Make the hotdogs $1.50. Make the peanuts $2. Get people in the door, and get them to come back.

You’re a baseball fan, what does every single non-baseball fan say to you: “I like going to the games, but I don’t like watching it on TV”. People like going to games because it’s a fun, chill, family-friendly activity to do with your people, not necessarily because they like the sport. But, get them in the park enough times, and they’ll learn how the game works. They’ll learn some of their team’s players. They’ll gain some loyalty and BAM! They’ll become a fan. I’m willing to bet it’s how most of us became fans when we where kids.

Want more people to like the sport, make it easier to come to the games! Unless you live in a couple major markets, you can easily find MLB tickets for under $20. But if you dare to get snacky, you get gouged for twice what you payed for your ticket to eat or drink. I’m not saying everything has to be cheap, premium concessions should be priced at a premium, but affordability needs to be considered.

It’s time to stop focusing on the game-play accessible, and focus on making the experience arround the game accessible. American Football is one of the most convoluted and complicated games out there, but people gravitate to it because the primary viewing method is so accessible and cheap.

There’s data to back this up, the Atlanta Falcons started a Fan First menu at their stadium with affordable prices and TRIPLED their concessions revenue.

The fan experience is the best asset of baseball, and the best tool MLB has to grow the game. They need to focus on what the people care about, and the people care about snacks and beer.

TL;DR: Make it easy for people to have a great time at MLB games, and they’ll grow into fans. Stop gouging the life blood of the sport for every single penny.

Edit: Holllyyy shit I seem to have struck a nerve. Thank you kindly for the awards. I’d like to note, that a $5 Budweiser isn’t, like, a crazy good deal in most of the country.

Men who don't drink (alcohol/beer): How do you manage your social life and meet new people?

While bars, pubs, and clubs are the major hubs for socialising and meeting new people in current era. Some people even look down upon us for not being part of that tribe. Some force us for consumption.

However, some of us still don't prefer liquid pleasures.

How do you manage your social life? Where and how do you meet new people? What do you do to hangout with friends?

Edit: Wow!! Woke up to 1.6K notification and post on front page. Not the first time but longest any for any of my post has stayed on front page.

So many great advice and good to know there exist many of us who still have a social life outside the drinking game. So happy to meet you all. While I will not be able to thank each and everyone of you, I am starting to read the response and thank you all for votes, awards, and interactions :)

AITA for buying apple juice for my grandma and letting her think it’s beer?

I’m M16 and my grandma started living with us last year. She’s not all there in the head, think it’s dementia but hard to say because she’s basically been like that my whole life. She only knows who her kids are but none of my other family, she has to be taken care of like a little kid, and is just not there mentally. Like one time she tried to eat our dogs food because she thought it was cereal or puts our milk on top of the fridge. That kind of stuff.

Anyways she used to be an alcoholic back in the day. The other day she goes to me and secretly hands me $2. She’s whispering being all secretive and tells me to go to the store and buy her a beer (me an underage kid 🙄) an not to tell anyone.

I told her I can’t but she kept insisting and I knew she wouldn’t stop bothering me over this. I got an idea and went to the store to buy her that Martinelli’s apple juice. You know the little ones that come in the glass bottle. Then I went back home and called her over like if I was being all sneaky. She acted the same way looking around to make sure no one was around and I whispered that I got her the beer.

She literally drank the apple juice and made a face like if she was tasting the alcohol. She smiled and went to her room to finish drinking the rest. I was trying so hard not to crack up and after that she left me alone.

Later on I was telling my sister about it and the fact she actually believed the apple juice was real beer but my sister was serious. She doesn’t think it’s funny I “tricked her” and I should’ve told grandma I can’t buy her beer. But that was exactly what I did and she didn’t leave me alone.

Still she doesn’t think it’s funny to lie to someone and taking advantage of the fact that they got mental problems.

So I’m kinda on the fence here. It felt like something harmless to lie about that also found a little funny but I don’t know. Was I an asshole?
