My boyfriend and I were talking on the phone, and I was talking about how I want to see him. I made a joke that soon I’ll get so desperate that I’ll order one of those blow up girl dolls and pretend it’s him. He apparently took me seriously and said one of his friends has one and he can ask him where he got it.
I clarified that I was joking, and then laughed that his friend has one and said he must be pretty desperate then. Like only men who never leave their house get those. But then my boyfriend said his wife died, then hung up. He won’t return my calls now.
AITA? I feel like going radio silent isn’t right here, there’s not way I could have known his wife died. I don’t know my boyfriends friends that well.
I’m 5’2, and my highest weight that I stayed at for a long time was 215. I got to 25, and realized I had never been in a relationship. I was too self conscious about my body, and no one really hit on me, anyway. I’d get things like “but you’re pretty regardless!” And that was such a weird feeling of “oh good, I’m glad I’m not ugly?” Mixed with “oh wow, there’s something really bad about me”. I was fat, but I knew myself, I was (mostly) comfortable, I was generally happy, I was sure of myself.
Then, I lost 100 pounds. I weigh between 115-120 now. What gets me is how differently I’m treated.
After 70 pounds lost, in one month I had gotten hit on more times that I’ve probably even interacted with a man in my life. I thought it was a fluke. At my job today, a guy came in who I recognized has been coming to our town for the past couple years on vacation. Incredibly cute, really nice and personable. When he used to come in, he didn’t really look at me twice, and I would think “if only I... keep reading on reddit ➡
Countless times do I have to ask my team “is that a team wipe?” and countless times does the person, who makes the final blow, not pay attention to whether it was a team wipe or not.

After years of profitability, the Fed says hey we will take on your losses.
Will the Fed buy my puts when I get ass-blasted by SPY this morning? Those are toxic assets right now right? The answer is no because it don’t matter if that makes me go bankrupt. It only matters when shitty airliners that should fail anyways go tits up.
Press F for the US economy, it’ll never be the same after this.
So don’t go running after it’s motes right after it dies and let me witness you losing 15 motes. Thank you for my ted talk.
That way we can mark out the old fans to act as guides for the newcomers. But what should the flair say? Thoughts on this?
Edit: rephrasing to try to make it less like gate keeping
Edit #2: credit to u/blippityblue72 for this idea; if this actually ends up happening, we should take away the flair from anyone who starts acting like the flair makes them better and looking down their noses at the newcomers. Everyone should be welcomed and the flair shouldn't be a cause for a divide.
It was such a well known pop culture phrase it's hard to believe that it was never said! I was never a huge trekkie fan but I clearly remember "Beam me up Scotty"!
I was just thinking about this the other day.
Backstory: My first 2 years of High School, I took Family and Consumer Sciences and was a member of FHA (which she was the sponsor of). The teacher straight up hated me. My first day in her class she informed me that there were too many people in school with my last name (there were 4 of us, one of whom had never taken a class with her) and that she wasn’t going to bother learning my first name. Apart from the time I won the FHA Outstanding Freshman award (much to her chagrin), I never once heard her use my first name. This is just to let you know how she treated me. Everything was always my fault, regardless of who was at fault.
On to the story. (This was the incident that led me to quit FHA and decide not to take any more FACS classes.).
It was my sophomore year. We were doing a cooking lab. I don’t remember what we were cooking but we had to put melted butter in the bottom of the baking dish. My lab partner decided to cut... keep reading on reddit ➡
Let me start by saying this isn’t a story of happened a few years back, this is happening now and it’s 2am where I’m from
So our night started ny a text from my mate Pete. Pete found a sneaky pu that’s local and is open during lockdown. Never one to turn an opportunity down and having been stuck indoors the last few weeks I’m all up for taking risks.
So around 10pm we sneak out and head to this pub only to find its full! Now if you’ve ever seen a British pub you’ll know we don’t drink to get social, we drink to get pissed.
As the hours pass more people come and go but this one bird stayed most the night and kept eying me up. After a few beers I plucked up the courage to go over and chat to her. No social distancing in this pub.
Before I carry on, after several weeks on lockdown my balls are blue and anything with a pulse is fair game. She was a decent bird, probably early 50s and I’m a man in need and open to an older woman so...
We make small talk and the obvious coronavirus... keep reading on reddit ➡
Seriously. You are not being oppressed and nobody is impressed with your little display of rebellion. Yes, it sucks but that's the way it is right now. Just wear the stupid thing.
Edit: this is the most karma I’ve gotten on one post thank you all! P.S. thanks for all the tips and correcting me on some things
You guys have been the best in any subreddit so far, little to no toxicity at all. Everyone has been kind and friendly and easy to talk to.
Also we were here for when GoT was a small sub. To see it grow will be awesome and something GoT richly deserves.
I can't wait to discuss with you guys the gameplay and the entire world in tonight's SoP.
Also your reactions too.
Tonight is going to be a great one!
