I live in the UK and when we have hot weather, it’s horrible. Spend the whole day trying to cool down, buy a thousand fans, cold baths and sleeping fucking terrible. Being on holiday; hot weather is better, you can jump in the sea or the pool and be cool for the rest of the day.
I work in an off license in Mayo and have seen a huge increase in customers from Northern Ireland and Dublin in the last few weeks, the vast majority of which aren’t wearing masks or observing physical distancing.
It is clear to me they are in holiday mode, they come in to the shop excited and usually in groups, and I think this makes them forget or stop caring about the rules. Nearly all locals that I have served are wearing masks.
If you’re coming to the West this weekend, please, please wear your masks indoors when necessary. 85 confirmed cases yesterday. I don’t see the schools reopening on time if this continues. Hope this doesn’t come across as preachy, please still come, we need your money.
Edit: Okay I take full responsibility for the Dub bashing going on in this thread, but believe it or not that wasn’t my intention. I admit, were I in the same situation I would probably end up not bothering to use a mask if I was in a shop for <10 mins. I phrased this post badly, t... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'll keep this short as the subject is the cause of a small childhood trauma for me. My parents have these friends who come over for a week or two they summer because we live close to the beach and they stay at our house rent free ,expenses free etc. They bring along their daughter who is the most entitled brat in existence. She is 16 ( or 17 ) and throws a tantrum whenever things don't go her way and I can't ignore her because she will start screaming or crying if I don't play with her the way she wants ( at 16 she still plays dressup,make-up etc ) and my parents force me to do whatever she wants because that is what 'a nice guest does ' . I had to give her my personal and favourite toys,dolls,gadgets etc because she wanted them and would cry and throw a fit if I didn't when I was only 8 years old. My parents always promised me they would buy new ones or replace them but they never did. This year , I begged my parents not to invite them over because it's not safe. At the moment ,Rom... keep reading on reddit ➡
Would you support making it a national holiday?
Leave it up to the state?
Or leave it up to the individual company?
This is my third story here, if someone has read my first story here, they'd know that my mother is really f*cking annoying. She'd do whatever she can to make me feel bad and make me think I ' ruined her holiday '.
Ever since the Summer holidays started, I've tried to keep myself physically and mentally fit ( I'm 15, M btw ). In terms of physical, I did ok, I lost a bit of weight and spent hours on reflexes when playing games on a sim wheel. In terms of mentally though, not so much.
My "mother" would make fun of me on how I was apparently fat and how I do nothing all day and just play games. A slight draught when closing the door, it's a slam according to her. I'm quite strong physically, but weak mentally. I was quite frankly a lot happier in school then out, even though I was not allowed to play games during the weekdays ( that's for another story ).
My dad is ok, he doesn't care and isnt as f*cking annoying as my so called mother.

I DO NOT GIVE PERMISSION FOR THIS TO BE ON YOUTUBE OR FACEBOOK OR ANY OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM.
UPDATE: Gran and Gramps did come by, my husband answered the door with a beer in one hand and his flagpole flying free in the wind. They were pretty disgusted and left immediately but were pretty much extremely angry. They confirmed what we thought - they think that we're the ones tearing the family apart. Needless to say my husband and I will be taking holidays off probably indefinitely with his grandparents. I sent them a long text about this being me choosing to heal and taking time off, rather than being a forgiving doormat that they expect me to be when it comes to SIL. Her actions have consequences and they need to let MIL/FIL handle this one.
Our attorney called us and our restraining orders (which we have waited three weeks for) have finally been approved. My parents will be served this week, same as my sister, provided we have their correct address on file (they live other si... keep reading on reddit ➡
A couple friends of mine posted a quote on social media reading, "F*ck your fourth of july, there are children in cages/people getting murdered by police" and "I'm wearing black on fourth of july for (various issue), if you're celebrating you're ignorant, privileged, etc". I can see where this is coming from, there are a lot of problems in America right now that should be addressed. But shaming people for having fun on a holiday isn't it. You have no right to shit on other people for trying to have a fun time, especially since the world has been pretty dismal lately.
Edit: Wow. I didn't expect this to blow up. I just want to clarify by "celebrating the holiday" I didn't mean not obeying pandemic-related laws. Wear masks and stay six feet away everyone, keep yourself and others safe.
My birthday is coming up & normally SO & I go to dinner or do something special like a weekend trip. Since I am high risk we can’t really go anywhere for my birthday. Even if I wasn’t high risk we wouldn’t want to go anywhere during this time anyway.
My in-laws own a lake house & has let the other children and their spouses use it the lake house by themselves as little getaway trip so SO and I thought that would be nice for my birthday. We haven’t used the house yet so we figured we’d ask & since we haven’t used it yet this year we’d get a yes. SO calls his folks to ask.
SO: Is there anyway we can use the cabin for two days for crazyquiltofdestiny’s birthday. We’ve kind of just need a small trip of out the house.
MIL: So, crazyquilt doesn’t want to spend her birthday with us?!?!?
We did not get a straight answer but we were informed my BIL and SIL are using the lake house by themselves for a whole week. SIL’s birthday is 2 days before mine & MIL never questio... keep reading on reddit ➡

Not the best postcard I’ve ever gotten
Independent video game industry analyst Benji-Sales implied that Spiderman Miles Morales isn't the only exclusive game releasing this holiday. He's, of course, holding the info back, but he initially let the same comment slip during his latest livestream today.
Here's the tweet thread for those interested:
He completely reminded me of a similar thing my friend used to do with his girlfriend. They’d book a holiday to somewhere, but separately so they’re not sitting with eachother on the flight. They didn’t even go to the airport together or meet up inside. You each go onto your flight as normal, but the catch is one of you takes both of your suitcases, and get in a taxi to the hotel. Now the other one waits at the airport days my bag didn’t arrive bla bla bla. I think you get some kind of report/wait for them to investigate. Now you enjoy your holiday and put in an insurance claim for your “stolen” luggage.
Not sure how easy it is, really don’t think they launch any sort of investigation where they actually manage to track you down, but my friend said him and his partner done it at least 8 times and e... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work in management in the hospitality industry here in San Diego and have been on furlough since March without pay. I’m sure there are many that are in the same boat as me. I think it is reprehensible that our leaders that we pay to represent us are taking a 3 week paid vacation without approving a new stimulus package in the middle of a global pandemic with millions unemployed.
We live in a higher cost of living city and many of us will have to choose between paying our bills or feeding our families because the federal unemployment benefit is not being extended. We will be disproportionately impacted by our representatives inaction, as opposed to lower cost of living areas of the country. If you are out of work and your family is being hurt by our elected representatives’ inaction, please help me organize a protest for unemployed San Diego families. How do we do this?
We need to make our voice heard. Anybody interested? I am extremely pissed off, but I’m not sure how to make th... keep reading on reddit ➡

On mobile device, so the usual "blah, blah, blah." Was talking with a old boss that I used to work for ( I'm at a different company now, but left on good terms) and remembered this. Background so people have a understanding. I drive semi and at the time I worked for a dairy delivering milk and other products to grocery stores. All days where the same except for Saturday. On Saturday my last stop was a Walmart and I didn't like dealing with one of the people who checked in deliveries. They had three people who rotated being in charge on Saturday.
So this happened early on a Saturday morning over labor day weekend in 2009. Because of the holiday weekend stores took larger amounts than normal because of the holiday Monday. Everything went smoothly at first 3 stops, but the last didn't. When I arrived at the docks that normally had one or 2 open, there was a line of trucks waiting. I wasn't surprised and don't mind waiting, because I get paid for waiting. About a half hour later it was m... keep reading on reddit ➡
