I don't care for breakfast foods. I want to be able to go somewhere in the morning and get lunch foods.
If I wake up and feel like eating a cheeseburger, what crime of the universe am I violating by doing so?
Ok so basically me(15f) and my sister(13f) share a debit card with our allowances on them, which is given to us by our mother. I was hungry and so I asked my sister if she wanted something from the italian place I was ordering from, she said yes and we ordered. The food is delivered and we eat the food, our stepdad sees us eating the food and asks how we got it. We explain and tell him we've ordered from here before which our mom knows about, he then calls our mom and says we're behaving selfishly cause we didn't buy stuff for anyone else. Our family has thirteen people, we had thirty dollars, my sister shared some of her stuff with our siblings and they didn't like the food I had. Plus I was the only one that had lunch today so it's not like we were all eating at the same time. Now my sister is worried we're gonna get in trouble. So AITA for not buying enough delivery for everyone?
Edit: It's actually twelve, my bad
Preface to this story, it’s another old camp story, and this was in the days when teens all had phones but “unlimited” plans weren’t a thing yet and we had to ration every minute.
It like the first week of camp and the kids are all getting dropped off when EM come up to me.
EM: Good morning, what time do the kids eat lunch?
Me: It varies a little, but usually at noon.
EM: Ok, thanks, can you please make sure that Jake calls me at 11:00 to tell me what he wants me to get him?
Me: I’m sorry ma’am, but we actually don’t allow the campers to use phones. We don’t actually want them bringing them here because we can’t be responsible for them, it I know some parents feel safer if their kid walks to camp on their own.
EM: Oh, Jake doesn’t have a phone. I meant for him to use the camp phone.
Me: We don’t have a camp phone. We have a walkie talkie to connect us to our main office, and then our director has his personal phone in case of emergency.
EM: Well don’t you have a cell phone?
EM: Great, so give it to Jake at 11:00 and he can call me with his lunch order.
Me: Ma’am, I’m not going to do that. I’m not going to let campers use my phone to order lunch.
EM: Well what is he supposed to do then?
Me: Most parents pack lunches and send their kids with those. We don’t usually get lunch drop offs. If you want to drop off his lunch everyday that’s fine, but Jake isn’t going to be able to call you with an order everyday.
The mom left and the next week the kid had a nicer phone than mine, which we all had to keep constantly telling him to put away.
Edit: thank you everyone 🥰 I'm running a few errands so I will do my answers when I'm sitting down with my cheesy chips! I hope everyone is well 🖤
Edit 2: I'll be studying Health, Welfare and Social sciences in September. I'm so excited!
My son starts kindergarten in the fall and we've been spoiled by the nutritious, tasty meals they make at his daycare. He's very social and eats anything (except cheese) offered there. Now, it's up to us to keep it nutritious, but tasty...
What were you always happy to get in your packed lunch as a kid?
So yesterday I posted here about feeling guilty for "cheesing" my fighting. Pretty much every comment was very encouraging and many reassured me that the game will force me to get better at the mechanics to progress.
I made noticeable improvements, can now beat all the balder Knights, beat the black knight and reach the boss with almost no difficulty.
But holy crap did I get dumpstered when the second gargoyle entered the fight. I love how surpassing one hurdle just means that I'm on the way to the next one.
Guess now I'm off to work where I'll likely spend all day mentally fighting them so I'll have a strategy to fight them afterwards.
(Throwaway because my family knows my social)
I (23F) was invited to a Mother's Day lunch by my childhood best friend, H (24F). H is hosting and paying for the lunch. Her kid is DD (3F)
I was confused since I have been openly childfree since I was 15. I felt weird intruding on a celebration that had nothing to do with me. I though it was to babysit, but she said that wasn't the reason.
For context, her devout family cut her off due to her pregnancy. So, I was the only person there to help her with Dr. apps, errands, cleaning, etc. When DD was born, I helped with anything she needed until she got her bearings. She doesn't need much help now, but I am still very involved.
H texted "When I think of having and raising DD, you always come to mind. You were always there, and if it weren't for you I might have really messed up. I want you to be there."
M-Day has always brought up very uncomfortable or unwanted comments toward me, so I stay out of the way. To have H include me in such a personal way meant a lot. I love DD and was so honored.
Skip to the lunch date last Saturday. Sitting at the table was H, two coworkers of hers, DD's nanny of 2yrs, and me. A little into lunch, H let said that her gym buddy was asking to join since her sitter canceled so her plans fell through. We all said no problem. G shows up with her kid in tow and lunch starts up again.
While we're talking, CW1 shows a gift she got from one of her kids, which sparks a conversation about fulfilling things their kids do. I commented at their stories, but didn't have my own so I let them talk. Everyone at the table was aware I didn't have kids/was childfree, except for G. I didn't figure it would be noticeable if I was contributing to the conversation. I just loved being part of it and seeing the POV of mothers.
G must have noticed I hadn't added anything, so she asked me about my kids and said she noticed I was left out. I told her I don't have any kids to talk about, but she got wide eyed and apologized for bringing up "painful stuff". I quickly corrected her and said it wasn't anything painful, I was just childfree.
She got quiet, and after a minute asked H to head to the bathroom with her. They came back looking pissed and when I texted H asking what's wrong she said nothing. Eventually G (angrily) asked why I was even here if I wasn't a mom. I explained H invited me, but G just shook her head and said it didn't matter, it was insulting that I was even here when I "didn't respect and... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'll try to keep this quick. I (20f) have two younger sisters, one is 19 and the other is 15. 15 year old is still in high school and still in remote learning due to the pandemic. Since the beginning of the pandemic she's become very irritable. All of us are to be honest, but her entire personality shifted. We aren't allowed to come into her room, even if we knock, and she doesn't answer her texts. I assume she has it on do not disturb for class. One time I was going to Starbucks and I was by her room so I knocked and she didn't answer, so I opened it quietly and she screamed at me to get out and that she was in class. After that I never bothered her again with things like this. My mum said to ignore her. I'm not sure what's up. But today it was just us two and mum gave us some cash to get lunch. I texted her asking her what she wanted early like around 11? She never answered. I knocked on her door and she also ignored me and told me to go away. I was about to ask her what she wanted and she just screamed again. I only got "what do you want" out before she screamed. When lunch came around I went by myself and got food and left the money for her if she wanted me to take her later. She came out her room 2 hours later and went "where's my food" and I explained it her that she was ignoring me and crap so I went without her. She locked herself into her room and now my house is full of tension. My parents understand why I did it but they wish I just went into her room. I'm sick of her attitude at this point. AITA for this?
Edit: Sup Reddit, didn't expect this to actually get as many upvotes and awards lol. But I figured I'd answer some questions the commenters had.
Sister has school during the day, however she has always talked about how she never pays attention during her lectures and sleeps or goes onto Tik Tok. She's 15 so she has that app. So her ignoring my texts was just her being a teenager I guess. As for therapy options, my parents are very weird with it. I've asked for therapy for myself in the past and the question is always dodged or they dance around it. So therapy for my sister is probably gonna get the same reaction. Also for people blaming my parents, I don't personally blame them as much as they have tried with her attitude, a lot actually, but she just ignores them. I've seen it happen. So they just choose to ignore her when she's in a mood. I guess she's 15 and growing but she is definitely being a dick about everything.
I apprecia... keep reading on reddit ➡
It's the weird little victories, right?
I graduated high school almost 6 years ago and shortly after graduation my group of 4 "best friends" all ghosted me, and I've had issues making friends ever since. I've been friendly with people and all, but anytime I get asked to hang out, my walls go up and I stay home.
Last week I was invited to a birthday lunch for today and I forced myself to go, and I had the BEST time. So good of a time, in fact, that I was added to a group chat called "Besties" with all the other girls and I am obsessed. We've all been sending each other pictures of our dogs and it's like a breath of fresh air.
It's funny because I was so nervous to go, but once everyone got there and settled in, I felt like I was clicked into place- like I found my people. This may be kind of a goofy post, but Y'ALL my heart is just so happy!
In a 30 year old Marine Corps vet and nuclear engineer and I love having a lunchable for a lunch snack.
Thats all I just want to put it out there and see if I'm not the only one who is still a child at heart.
I was walking around downtown because I couldn't find work today. All my gear with me because it's not safe to leave stuff anywhere in the city. Asked a cop for directions and next thing I know I'm having some food with him (social distance applied). Treated me like a human and bought me a meal. Never experienced this in any Canadian city. Thank you Frank. Thinking of going to see if Langley has some good places to set up and be secluded. A few people yesterday suggested Langley being better for the homeless and want to see what its like. Keep truckin Vancouver. No need for the hate. I never want to see anyone be homeless and were real people. Thanks to the nice redditor that helped buy me dinner tonight as well. Very thankful for you guys. I just ate an entire rotisserie chicken thanks to a redditor. Thanks for making me feel welcome Vancouver.
I (32F) had a catch up lunch organised with a friend (32M). This friend is always late to everything. Being late is fine, however in this day and age of mobile phones I have strong feelings that one should try to notify a person if they are running significantly late to a date/meeting.
I got the cafe at 12pm which was the arranged time. I sat at a table by myself, surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the busy Cafe. At 12.30pm, my friend had not arrived, I'd received no text, so I simply left and went home. At no point did I try to text or ring him to see where he was/how far away he was.
The thing is, I knew he hadn't forgotten our lunch date and that he was just being his usual late self. But I was sick of it. At 12.38, so nearly 40 minutes after our arranged time, I got a message from him saying, "I'm here, where are you?". I replied with, "I assumed you weren't coming so I went home ". I then refused to drive back to the cafe to have the lunch. I know communication works both ways, but AITA? My husband thinks I should've just rang him, given that I know his tendency to be late.
The support for this idea from the community is amazing. We may have to make this a nationwide feed the homless with Doge drive. Ill contact everyone here that wants to join as we get closer to the $5.00 mark and we will all network. DOGE. DoGoodEveryDay, to the mooooon!!!
My mom left me (24M) when I was 7. Well me and my dad. After their divorce she got remarried less than a year later and got involved with her new husbands kids so she stopped having total contact from then. My dad struggled a lot raising me on his own and we never had it easy. Never had a relationship with my mom since then. The only time she reached out was on my 18 to tell me happy birthday but I never replied to her. Even if it was mother day I still like to do something with my dad so went to his house so we can have a bbq just me and him or at least that’s what I thought. My dad brought up he’s been in contact with my mom. Guess she and her husband divorced over a year ago. Then my mom shows up and they decided to tell me together that they started seeing eachother again. My dad told me he knows it’s a lot after what she did but he decided to forgive her and ask me to give her a chance.
The whole time I was trying hard not to lose it I swear because I just wanted to call my mom a selfish b*tch and whole bunch of other stuff. I told my dad I didn’t care if he forgave her because she also fucked up my life for leaving. And I’m not giving her a chance. Only said this to my dad I didn’t wanna say anything to my mom so I ignored everything she was saying. It ruined the whole thing for me so I got up and walked away. My dad kept calling me back to talk. I got in my car and left.
My dad I saying I was out of line for walking off like I did and brushing him off like that when he was trying to be up front and honest with me. And the least I could’ve done was give dinner a chance with him and my mom. I didn’t even wanna be in the room with her though or want hear what she has to say so I’m wondering if I was an asshole for just leaving because he seem to think I was for not caring about his happiness.
