Let me start this off by saying, I know that I am not neglected anywhere near the point where child protection services need called. Oh, and I live in Scotland (I dunno if this is important or not). Oh and we are a pretty well off family.
Okayyy... So pretty much I (16m) have always felt slightly left out by my parents and that they dont love me as much as my sisters (17f, 15 and 14f). Its not that they dont love me, it more that I've never really been their top priority. However I've always thought that I was just being selfish and spoilt.
So a bit about me. I'm lucky you could say. I do well academically, I compete at a high level in sports, I have lots of friends, and have never struggled with any form of mental health and am (apart from so acne) generally what would be considered handsome. I definitely got the good genes. However my parents dont really care about that, they don't come to my competitions, never really encouraged me and rarely came to parents evening.
My sisters... keep reading on reddit ➡
She heard the train stop and her son said, "All of you sons of b*tches who want off, get the hell off now, cause this is the last stop! And all of you sons of b*tches who are getting on, get your asses in the train, cause we're going down the tracks." The mother went nuts and told her son, "We don't use that kind of language in this house. Now I want you to go to your room and you are to stay there for TWO HOURS. When you come out, you may play with your train, but I want you to use nice language." Two hours later, the son comes out of the bedroom and resumes playing with his train. Soon the train stopped and the mother heard her son say, "All passengers who are disembarking from the train, please remember to take all of your belongings with you. We thank you for riding with us today and hope your trip was a pleasant one. We hope you will ride with us again soon." She hears the little boy continue, "For those of you just boarding, we ask you to stow all of your hand luggage under you... keep reading on reddit ➡
Ron gives Harry the Cannons book, so he could read all about rons favorite quidditch team. I was reading and I realized, and growing up poor myself, I had given away things that I liked to people for Christmas or their birthday, because I didn't have the money to buy them something else. I would give away a book or a game I really liked and told them I thought they would like it, which was true, I tried to give them something they would enjoy, but it was more because I couldn't go to the store to buy toys or something for really anyone. Ron's gift made me think of this, and I wonder if Ron did the same thing.
Edit. Just got back from work and saw this blow up. Thanks so much for all the love this got, you all gave such kind words and thoughts. Super glad to be apart of this Fandom rn c: you guys made my day!
Background: I’m (17F) a mixed girl (Caucasian-African American). I spend holidays more with my white side, since my black side lives an hour away. Ngl, I hate most of the white side of my family. They’re dramatic, gossipers, rude, and some are kinda racist. I overall just don’t vibe with most of them. All of these apply to my EA (entitled aunt).
This entire story happened Christmas of 2019.
We all stayed at a HUGE house that we rented out in the mountains of Tennessee for a week to celebrate Christmas. Everything was going well and it was fun, though I was kinda annoyed because of my EA being bitchy...
Christmas Day came. We finished eating Christmas dinner and most of my fam went out to the patio to go in the hot tub, drink, or talk. My cousin (kid of EA, 19F, named “M”, VERY close to her) and I went upstairs into the room we shared. We were talking about girls (she’s les, I’m bi), smoking a blunt, and having fun. During our smoke sesh, my gf calls. Keep in mind, she’s from Côté D’... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I just have to share this Story. So i come up against this guy, with a pretty strong side including Red Neymar and Red Mbappe (surprise surprise these are the guys that get lucky).
So opponent isn’t bad, but I dominate him for the first 25 minutes 5 to 0 shots on target for me. Somehow the guy goes up 1:0 and starts shushing me. And not just a short shush, the guy literally runs across half the field, till all time runs out and still watches all replays. But I come back pretty quickly, skip replays and continue. He goes ahead 2:1 in the 40th, proceeds to shush again, and watch all replays. I come back 2:2 before the 45th.
Second half ensues, he scores in the 55th, shushes, watches all the replays. But then he started wasting time, the guy literally played the ball to his GK, stood there for a minute passed in forwards, runs to My box, and then plays it back to his GK.
So at this point I go full attacking, team pressure and what not. And somehow in the 80th minute I come back to... keep reading on reddit ➡

I’ve been with this guy for a few months now, and he’s a really chill and nice guy, however idk what it is, but I just feel like he doesn’t see me like he does his female friend.
When she texts him, he grins like a kid in a candy store, when he talks about her he seems like he’s on cloud nine, and when we all hang out he’s super talkative to her and acts happier than he is when he’s with me.
Their text log takes up 2gb on his phone, I can’t even scroll to the beginning of the year.
He constantly tells her he loves her and she’ll reply love ya too. I mean I guess this could be platonic.
She does a have a boyfriend, and he’s friends with him as well.
At his place in a drawer I found a receipt from last year (before we were together) for a pair of engraved AirPod pros and I thought it was weird because I never saw an engraving on his AirPods so I asked him “are ur AirPods engraved?” He said, “No why?” So then I told him about the receipt and he said oh yeah that was a Christmas gift... keep reading on reddit ➡
'and from dobby a truly awful painting that harry suspected had been done by the elf himself' - harry potter and the order of the phoenix
okay but can you guys imagine dobby going out to hogsmeade and buying a canvas and paints with his own wages and working really hard on this painting after hours, not caring that all the other house elves think he's crazy. bear in mind the amount of effort it would've taken him. i can just imagine him fussing over it like 'oh no, master harry's eyes are not looking green enough' .he's so freaking wholesome i love dobby so much.
I'm a 59 yr old grandma. The start of a new league is the closest I get to feeling of great anticipation I had as a child. Counting down!
Title basically says it all. By "Christmas itself" I refer to specifically December 25th, Christmas Eve is in with the "days leading up"
The days leading up are just more fun. There's something in em for everyone. People who are more introverted can put up decorations or watch sappy Christmas movies on a snowy night, of which there are many options for everyone's tastes. If ur extroverted, people throw plenty of Christmas parties leading up to Christmas with present-exchanges and cute music. People who are still in school get Christmas break to look forward to (as someone who is in a family of a couple teachers, even they enjoy it). These times are just so pleasant, and I love seeing friends at this time to exchange gifts and the like. Everything just feels so simple.
Meanwhile, on Christmas day itself, if ur in a family that still does presents, after that you, what, eat dinner and that's it? Chances are you have to be somewhere. At least for me it turns into a mad dash to see relat... keep reading on reddit ➡
First of all English isn't my native language so expect some grammar mistakes
A little backstory: My dad is Muslim and really wanted one of his children to marry a Muslim. Then I met a really sweet Muslim girl at school and you could clearly see she's a Muslim/has Arabian roots (important to the story) . But my aunt (mother's sister) was really religious (Christian) and 'hates' other religions. That's all you need to know to follow the story
Actual story: me and my family arrive at the Christmas party and search for our grandma who organised the party. Me and my gf go sit down next to my siblings and cousins it was really nice until EA arrives at the party with nice boyfriend(NBF) and their kid (not entitled and doesn't affect the story). This was the first time my gf was at a family gathering so my aunt sees her for the first time. And then the following conversation occurs:
EA to gf: "Who are you, I have never seen you here"
Gf: "I'm OP's girlfriend"

My boyfriend and I bought a house about a year ago. This is our first time as home owners and we have very little experience with HOAs. He asked me to post this and see if anyone has had a similar experience/could offer any advice.
At the end of January, I took down our Christmas tree. My boyfriend was in New Mexico for work and wouldn’t be back for two days, so I left it on the side of our driveway, in a patch of rocks against our front stairs as that was pretty much the only place we had room to leave it. It was laid down flat and honestly hardly noticeable at all. The plan was to leave it there over the weekend and then throw it in the back of his truck when he returned and dump it somewhere properly. And that’s what we did.
Well, 5 months later we get a notice from the HOA saying that we’ve been fined $150 for having our Christmas tree out on our driveway. My boyfriend sends them an email asking them to dismiss the fine, as we were never even given a warning or notice and it was... keep reading on reddit ➡
