I'm a 20(f). My husband is 22. My MIL just turned 40. I am pregnant with our first baby and MIL is a NIGHTMARE. We are signing on a house today that is 40 mins away from her (it's important to know that). I am married to her only child (also important).
I left my job when I got pregnant because of the environment there and my husband agreed I will stay home the duration of my pregnancy. I don't drive. I hate driving I loath it. I dont even have my license (working on that sadly enough). When his mother found out where our house is located she BLEW UP. She made me feel like I was worthless and she made my husband feel like a failure. She is never on our side or happy for us. We didn't have a wedding ceremony and she wasn't there when we got hitched (for the pregnancy so I could have insurance).
40 mins is how far our house is from her. Our current apartment is 30 mins. She has been here twice. She started yelling and screaming that I was taking away her son and now her grandson and th... keep reading on reddit ➡
Apologies for mobile. In a conversation about me moving halfway across the country for grad school and adopting a dog, my mom continuously points out all the things that could go wrong. Understandable, but after a while of me providing very detailed, logical, well thought-out plans to overcome each and every potential obstical, it becomes obvious it was never about how prepared I am, but about how she feels.
Me: has detailed step-by-step plans to handle each situation.
Mom: Is still not satisfied and insists everything WILL go wrong and I shouldn't do it. Even if moving out and going to grad school is good for me in the long run and I can afford it, its still, somehow, a terrible idea.
Mom: "When you have kids you will understand. Its because I care about you."
Me: "IF I have kids."
Mom: rolls eyes dramatically "Then I guess you will NEVER understand. I worry because I care."
Me: "Caring for a person is also trusting them."
Lmao mom. Literally speechle... keep reading on reddit ➡
How about a gentlemen’s agreement to shoot down all placement warriors in helicopters when we get the chance?
If enough people in the mid tier/higher lobbies do this it won’t even be viable for them to do it.
Helicopters can’t fly in restricted air space, which all airports have around a mile radius around them. Now this won’t help you get away from the ground units. But if you drive fast enough most cops will stop the chase to try to preserve public safety. Once you get close abandon the car. Walk to the airport and grab or call a cab, don’t run or walk away police ground units will still be searching.
It’s worked in San Diego for a motorcyclist, once in Florida with a stolen car, and I’m sure there’s been other instances but those hit the news.
It’s not a foolproof plan, especially if the cops realize where your going but if your desperate it’s your best bet.
EDIT; So there’s been a lot of good points brought up by some people with a lot of experience.
I’d just like to state, that most likely this is not something that will always work, there’s a decent chance the criteria for success for something is pretty low. I mostly wrote this cause I thought it was a funny, and surprisingly su... keep reading on reddit ➡
When there is a raid, helicopters will come in and bomb the entire village.
The government and the fed are now acting like helicopter parents to corporations. They'll burn down the world to prevent any difficulties for a corporation. I believe the conversation between the airlines and the government went something like this:
UAL: "Mommy! Mommy! No one is buying plane tickets!"
JP & Govt: "Aww, UAL. You mean you have $5bn in monthly operational expenses and only $20mm in cash reserves? That's ok, honey. Here is $10bn. You deserve all the money in the world!"
UAL: "Fuck you Mommy! I'm laying everyone off. $10bn is nothing!"
JP & Govt: "I'm so sorry UAL! Tell you what, we'll buy all your bonds. And at a nice 50% haircut!"
UAL: "You better do that fast. Or I'll layoff everyone! I swear!"
JP & Govt: "Of course honey, we will get that ASAP! With no strings attached. None of this is your fault! No one expects you to be able to cover more than 3 hours of lost revenue!"
This seems like something they would add in a mode like Plunder.
The helicopter audio drowns out the entire game and ruins immersion, to give a stuffed piñata to the people silly enough to shoot at something that isn't shooting back?
