For clarification, I mean you’re just as bad of a person as they are for engaging in the affair even though you didn’t technically cheat on anyone.
The counter I’ve always heard to this is “Why should I have a higher moral compass if they obviously don’t?” and I say that’s a bullshit excuse to be a shitty person. There’s plenty of non-married people out there you can fuck all you want but you’re actively engaging in something that can potentially ruin marriages (I say potentially because some have been known to recover from a cheating incident) and ruin their SO’s life. It’s not difficult to fuck somebody that’s not married/in a relationship.
And no, this didn’t happen to me, it’s just something that’s always bothered me when I overhear people boasting about how they hooked up with a married chick/dude and fail to see how they’re a shitty person as well.
Edit 2: A surprising amount of you are trying to spin this any way you can to paint yourself in a good picture and I gotta say, it ain’t working for me. Sure, they were the ones that “committed to monogamy” (since that seems to be a popular example) however you’re still actively participating in an affair. I don’t care if you do or don’t know their SO, it’s a pretty shit thing to do in my opinion and I still maintain little to no respect for you.
Edit 3: Another popular example: “But I didn’t make a promise to anyone so how am I a bad person?”
Nah, still ain’t doing it for me. Again, you knowingly participated in an affair. It’s really not that difficult to be a decent person and not fuck somebody that’s already in a relationship or married. There are millions if not billions of single people out there. Go fuck them instead.
There have been a lot of instances where I(M24) liked a girl but the moment I found out about how many "adventures" or "fun" they had I just became disgusted and changed my opinion of them in an instant. Sometimes if I liked her a lot those news really angered me. Now that wouldn't have been a problem if they had a relationship where they had sex and it happened to not work out in the end. But this hooking up on dating apps or drunk at bars is a Hugh Mungus turn off for me.
What do all of you think? (Post age and gender too maybe? I'm curious who I'm getting these perspectives from.)
EDIT: To make it clear to people calling me sekseest/misogymnastic. I don't favor men sleeping around casually either.
Hello, I got hired in a company as junior react developer couple months ago. Before that, I have never worked with react. So when I started to learn it, at the beggining I started with class components because there was much more information about class components rather than functional components and hooks also I had some small personal project with Angular (and there are classes). But I have red that react hooks are the future and much better etc. So I started to use them right away in the project i was into (it was a fresh new company project). I got used to hooks and I liked it. So far so good, like 4 months in the project 50+ PRs with hooks (custom hooks, useEffect, useState etc.).But one day there was one problem which I couldnt solve and we got in a call with one of the Senior Developers from the company. Then he saw that I am using hooks and not class components when I have some logic AND/OR state management in the component. And then he immidately told me that I have to use class components for EVERY component which have state inside or other logic and to use functional component ONLY for dump components which receive only props.His explanation was that class components are much more readable, maintanable, functions in functions are spaghetti code and things like that.So I am little bit confused what is the right way ?? I havent red anywhere something bad about hooks, everywhere I am reading that hooks are better. Even in the official react docs about hooks, they recommend to start using hooks.Also I am a little bit disappointed because I got used into hooks, like I said I had like 50+ PRs with hooks (and the PRs "were" reviewed by the seniors) and then they tell me to stop using them...So wanna ask is there someone who have faced same problems in their company ?
Why YSK: This can attract the wrong type of customer to the business, and lead people to expect things that are not advertised.
If you want to help the business mention things like "went above and beyond" "came in under the estimate" "always willing to work with my needs." This can drive traffic to the business, but won't attract people expecting handouts or discounts.
I have known quite a few people building their business who have done discounted work to get it off the ground, or just as a favor trying to help someone in need out. It is great work at FAR below market value, and then that person turns around and tells 5 friend, but they also mention they got the work done for X rate, when the business usually charges Y rate.
Edit: For clarity I am not condoning shilling.
Edit 2: My first awards - thanks so much! I'll be sure not to mention them in your review /s
Edit 3: If you get an item completely free, and you have no bill, especially if you know ahead of time, and especially if the owner says something like I would love to hear your review - absolutely mention that you got it for free. But if you go to a place that you are a regular and they don't charge you for dessert, or give you 10%/20% off, and you aren't expecting it, that is different than shilling, come on people.
Hey everybody, my name is Ricky Montgomery. If you know me, it's probably because of my solo music, my music with The Honeysticks, or maybe even my old vine account.
I've been making music and videos for pretty much my whole life now, and recently that started paying some serious dividends after a couple of my songs blew up on TikTok a few months ago. I just put out a music video for the biggest one, ‘Line Without a Hook’, that you watch here: https://rickymontgomery.lnk.to/lwahvideo.
Those TikTok songs brought me from never having any label interest to having nearly every single major label try to sign me at the same time. It was an absolutely insane process, which I am happy to talk about. In the end, I decided to go with Warner Records. Now, I'm navigating this next unprecedented stage of the career. Currently, I am working on my second solo album.
I've also done a lot of other stuff, including starting and/or cofounding several social media marketing businesses on the side to pay the bills while I pursued a career in art. I don't do that anymore, but would be happy to talk to anyone curious about that side of my life, too.
Ask me anything!
EDIT: Alright everybody, I'm gonna get back to work now but this was a lot of fun. Thanks for all of the great questions, hopefully I've been able to offer some insight for some of you who were looking for advice. Let's do it again sometime!
