UPDATE: I wasn't allowed to post an update post. So long story short, I have my tooth back (BF threw it in my mailbox in an envelope, without a card or anything, so idk if I'm supposed to take that as an apology or if he's pissed). Tooth seems unharmed. Haven't talked to BF ever since this happened and don't know what will happen with us. But, I have the tooth back, and am actually now planning to get a tattoo of it so if it ever DOES get lost I will still have it with me. Thanks for everyone assuring me I was not TA.
I've had this shark tooth ever since I was maybe 11, I found it on a beach on vacation. At the time it was just cool, because what are the chances to just walk on a random beach and find a shark tooth? In time it became an important emotional keepsake for me that reminded me of all the 'good' parts of my childhood. Honestly most of it wasn't very good, so, extra important. I just really like this stupid tooth and whenever I was upset I would just rub it in my hands and f... keep reading on reddit ➡
So my best friend and I swapped keys to our houses in case of emergency, we can get in to each other’s houses. We’ve never had to use them except for once she forgot her keys at home and I let her in. Anyway over the weekend my boyfriend went to visit his mother and I went grocery shopping for the first time in like 4 weeks, so the house was empty.
My boyfriend and I have some bdsm stuff in the bedroom that we didn’t put away because we were lazy and didn’t think anyone would see, since no one was coming over. Not anything super insane, just a pair of handcuffs and a rope.
Anyway, when I got home my friend was just in my house, sitting in the dining room. No warning, she didn’t tell me, I was completely blindsided. I asked her why she was in my house and she said she had lost a necklace the last time she was here, and waited until I was gone as to “socially distance”. But then, if entering my house without permission wasn’t enough, she started lecturing me on the bdsm stuff and how... keep reading on reddit ➡

I just spent the last 3 hours figuring out why I couldn't get into Windows because my keyboard and mouse wouldn't work. Just before that, I started smelling hot plastic - my graphics card was running +90°C because again, Vanguard disabled my cooling software (My PC case got very bad airflow, I have to decrease my GPU performance to keep it cool enough).
Vanguard really needs to prevent us from launching the game while X software is active -and asking us to close it, even if we need to reboot just after- instead of disabling everything silently.
EDIT regarding my GPU: the issue with my graphics card started few days ago but I wasn't able to link it to Vanguard. Since my case was made to hold a GT630, the airflow sucks hard and I made a profile which I always use with target performance at 75% for my GTX970. Less performance, but less heat and th... keep reading on reddit ➡
Ive been stuck in the house for a couple of months now and all the cooking has fallen to me. Well, I'm sick of it. My med school exams start in around a week and that stress is already driving me crazy, and spending a couple of hours every day planning and preparing a meal (picky husband) is not helping. I brought up getting takeout atleast once a week till my exams get over but he got very angry that I was valuing my convenience over our health. I know it's not the safest right now and I get why he's apprehensive, but I just dont have the time and the cases in our city have been dropping recently. Yesterday, i was so tired and it was near dinnertime and nothing was ready, so I just gave up and got something from a local restaurant. When husband got home and saw what was for dinner he lost it and we had a pretty big argument. He said a lot of stuff in anger and I know its because he's stressed because of his job and worried about us but it hurt. I never thought it would be this big a d... keep reading on reddit ➡

My girlfriend and I have been together for 3 years and we've lived together for the last two years. Im 25 and she is 23. Last year I leased my dream car, Jeep Wrangler and worked my A$$ off to get it. I leased it with the intentions of buying it out as long as it was everything I hoped it would be. I then put a lift kit on it, new rims and tires, and some other changes to make it "mine".
Shortly after I leased it my girlfriend leased a Jeep Cherokee. I bought a beater Honda Civic to drive to work every day so I don't run the miles up and wear and tear the vehicle. I love that Jeep and I want to keep it nice for as long as possible. My girlfriend doesn't seem to pay too much attention to how she drives because her jeep now has some scratches, dings, and this horrendous scrape around her rim (from hitting a curb she never hit).
About 6 months ago she takes my jeep to her dads house (50 miles each way) and then to a store further than that (+20 miles each way) without... keep reading on reddit ➡
This might seem a strange issue, but considering Windows 10 is seemingly designed exclusively around collecting data on its users, I feel like the fact they can make changes to the hardware that you own should be illegal, but I feel like I'm the only person who gets angry about this particular issue.
Is this something anyone is doing anything about?
She's located in SD. I'm in MN. The book looks self published she seems to have started her own publishing company. She used our names only our bio dad's name was changed. I have proof I was not cooperating with her writing the book. She directly quoted our journals growing up. I don't know where to begin. Any advice is appreciated.
For everybody panicking about whatever's broken, just remember Legends of Runeterra is not official.
My estranged father is nearly impossible to get ahold of. I mean he maybe reaches out after my failed attempts once every few months. Well I live out of state and I was 8 months pregnant and my bf proposed. My father now refuses to talk to me because he feels disrespected that my bf did not ask his permission (or blessing) to propose. I personally find this to be an antiquated tradition that is disrespectful to me. Esp at 8 months pregnant and my dad not really being a major part of my life.
I so badly want to have a relationship with my dad even if it’s once in awhile. AITA or is he?
Although come to think of it; a fake search warrant might do just as well.
Is this why I feel so tired every morning?
Title is self explanatory, basically, a couple months ago, I (16 F) was angry at my mom for something and I made a journal entry about how I felt. Gast forward to today, my mom was snooping around in my room while I was taking a shower and she stumbled upon my journal. In my journal, I wrote about how she was a bitch, and i cursed at her many times. Obviously, my mom saw that entry and got upset and broke down about how she was a great mom and i was a brat and an ungrateful child. I told her that it was MY personal journal and she had no right to see it without my permission. She said that until I am an adult, i am her responsibility and whatnot.
This happened about a week ago, I’m still mad, and I’m not sure if I should be.
I paint and draw a lot, and I do it even more since the beginning of lockdown. When I show people my work, they often say “you should sell those, it could make you a lot of money”. I never actually considered it, because I get attached to my things, and I just don’t see myself selling the paintings I put so much time and effort into.
Well, about 2 weeks ago, my boyfriend of 2 years talked to me about selling my paintings, insisting it could make us a lot of money. I told him I didn’t want to do that. It’s not like we need the money, we both have good jobs. We got into an argument about it, and I finally told him I would think about it, mainly to shut him up.
A week later, I saw a bag in our hall closet. Inside were 4 of my paintings. I asked him why he put them there, and he casually said he had sold them to a few of his colleagues and was planning to bring them at work.
I was pissed. He said he though... keep reading on reddit ➡
I know this has been plastered all over /r/investing and /r/stocks already but it only feels right to share it here too. TLDR: Hertz still has almost 250 million shares authorized (but not outstanding) and they want to sell them to raise $1 billion to fund their bankruptcy.
I thought I had seen everything in this market but this just shows you that nothing is off the table. Before you buy HTZ, please realize that if you participate in this offering (if it even ends up being allowed, which is questionable), all you're doing is paying off HTZ debt and throwing money at Jeffries for underwriting it.
On the flip side, given the current market conditions, it's not the worst idea and while IMO it's disgustingly predatory I can't say I blame HTZ for trying to take advantage of this market nonsense. If they do manage to convince a court to allow this, it actually does give equity holders a chance to get something which they certainly won't get if it just goes the pure bankruptcy route.

I am 19F and I just finished my sophomore year of college. Due to the pandemic and school closing, I have been living with my parents since March. Although my mom and I are usually close, we have been bickering about small things, probably because we have been confined in the same house for several months together.
And then this happened today and I am wondering if I am in the right or if I was an AH.
Today, I got my period and I had been looking into buying period cups for a while because they are cheaper (long term), they don't produce the same amount of waste that pads and tampons do, and I heard that they were more comfortable. I had also discussed this with my mom in the past but she had always said "we'll see" or "we can look into it later" and other vague, disinterested responses. Today I talked to my friend who uses period cups and I decided to buy it off Amazon. It was 2 cups for $9.
When I am at school I buy things off of Amazon myself, but now that I am living at home, my... keep reading on reddit ➡
Southern US, if it was unclear..
Basically my boyfriend’s mother is super overbearing and boundary stomping. There’s just too much to go into detail. My boyfriend is 24. I’m 22. Our son is 6 days old. His mother brought it upon herself to print off pictures of my child and pass them out to her family. Which wouldn’t have been an issue if she had asked first. She printed off a picture from him while I was in the hospital and gave them to people before I had even announced his birth..like ???? Wtf. Then she posts a picture of him on Facebook (without my permission) publicly. So, I messaged her and asked her to take it down and to stop handing out pictures of my child. I said “I understand that you’re super excited for SJ(baby’s nickname) but please understand that his dad and I both agreed that we don’t want him to have an online presence. We told you this before he was born. Also, we don’t appreciate that you printed pictures of him off and are giving them to people. I get that you gave them to family members, but I... keep reading on reddit ➡
How would you respond if a neighbor painted the fence you own on their side white. Then Painted HALF the finials on the top on only their side, leaving you with a half painted finial in contrast to your neutral fence? I’m certain this is against our HOA covenant but only care about the tops that are visible in my yard.
ETA- I’m more interested if we are overreacting or being Karens about this when we tell/ask her to strip it off. We’ve contacted our HOA.
ETA again- husband spoke to the neighbor or who apologized and said she would go ahead and sand it. That is the outcome we were hoping for. Leaving the thread up Incase it helps anyone else. Thanks, homeowners, for your suggestions and input! It appears I stewed all day and there was a peaceful outcome.
I’ve never done anal, and had never even considered it before since it never appealed to me and I’m afraid of the pain. When I started dating my bf, there were instances when I thought he’d put his dick in my ass, and I always gently told him “No”.
The other time I told him “No”, he playfully told me “There’s no ‘no’, you just go with it”, but he stopped poking his dick by my asshole. Afterwards we had a serious conversation if he wanted to do anal sex with me since I’ve never been interested in it, but Im not gonna say im never gonna do it with him if he’s that into it, but I specifically asked him that if we do decide to do it, he asks for my permission first so that I can prepare mentally, and more importantly physically. He then said that there’s no need to prepare for it physically (like enemas or other things) and that’s when I became skeptical because I’ve been on this sub before I met him and i’ve read some posts about how to get ready for it. I flatly told him that maybe the... keep reading on reddit ➡
I don’t give permission for my story to be used anywhere else!
Hi I’ve posted this on another sub, and was told I should post it here. I’ve been with my husband for 8 years and married for 4. Every year I realize more and more what a witch of a mother he has! She will be shady about things and act like an innocent little old lady. BUT she is NOT! Recently my husband planned a day and night to get away just the two of us, to celebrate my College graduation. Of course she was pissed because my husband was being spontaneous and planning everything for me. (She always says her husband never gave her anything while they were dating, not even a rose. And how cheap he was towards her.) So anytime my husband does something for me she gets jealous and throw tantrums or tells my husband I don’t deserve them.

I realised yesterday that I automatically ask for permission to do things that really don’t need permission. Like, I can go take a shower or make a snack for myself at any time, but no, I feel weird if I don’t inform my partner of my intentions and whereabouts at all times. It’s just funny at this point because he really couldn’t care less and he’s told me multiple times that I don’t need to tell him these things - it’s my house, I do what I want and don’t need to justify it.
Edit 2: Thank you everyone who commented on this! I am glad many of you found it enlightening and a good way to share your experience. Some funny stories were shared also, so thank you for making my day while validating both my and each other’s experience! :) I hope you are all well and having a nice day.

Hi Reddit! Long-time reader, first-time poster.
Hoping for advice on what actions I can take as a paying tenant, if any:
I'm a recent grad who rented a commuter bedroom last year to live closer to work. My lease has expired, so I've been going month-to-month. Back in late Feb/early March, my landlord (who is actually renting the place herself) asked me to prepay 3 additional months of rent because she needed the cash to afford her dentures. I had already prepaid a bunch of rent in January, so 3 additional months would cover me through June 2020.
Seeing that she needed help and sounded really exasperated, I took money out of my own savings account and willingly prepaid my rent out to June 2020. Unfortunately, a few days after that, shelter-in-place began, I went back to live with my mom, and I haven't lived in the commuter bedroom since.
This whole time, my rent was fully paid and I figured it'd be nice to still have access to the room should I need anything. However, when I... keep reading on reddit ➡
My 21F boyfriend 23M told me a few days ago he really wants to try anal which I said no to but yesterday we were having sex and suddenly he put it there it hurt really bad I started to cry so he pulled out and said sorry after but I told him its not okay he did that without my permission and I dont know what to do now at all because what he did really hurt me. And I dont even know if I can trust him with anything now worst part is we are engaged I dont know what to do..
Backstory: so, almost a year ago I went on a trip with my class to somewhere in the middle of nowhere. While we were there, I found a puppy. He wasn't in the best condition - very skinny and very thirsty, and the heat was almost unbearable. In the end I decided to take him with me, so I called my mom (not the entitled parent) and she gave me permission to take him with me, this is how I found lucky, my very best friend.
So, back to the story. A month or two passed, it was 10 pm or so, and I decided to take my dog out. So I opened the door (I live in a building without elevators) and my dog just put his nose out from the door, when I hear a scream. I looked down the hall to see the entitled parent and the conversation went like this:
Me: "are you ok? Did something scare you?" E/M:"YOUR DOG SCARES ME!!" me: "oh, I'm really sorry, can you let me get in so you can pass-" E/M:" NO! WHY DO YOU EVEN HAVE THAT DOG?!" me:"what do you mean?" E/M:"WHO GAVE YOU PERMISSION TO HAVE A DOG?!" Me:v"... keep reading on reddit ➡

In theory, it's a great compromise to let a user keep the stable Ubuntu base while gaining access to the latest versions of software they need. But right now, they are abrasive to the "average" user desktop experience since they supersede the regular apt version in the software store by default, but tend to not work due to permission issues.
One example is the music player clementine, where out-of-the-box snap Clementine is unable to access music files on USB drives or secondary disks. Huge thanks to the maintainer for responding to me quickly, but he was not able to change this default setting, because enabling this was a "security risk".
Another example I just stumbled across was the qBittorrent app not actually downloading any files. Again, this was because it did not have enough snap networking permissions out-of-the-box. I imagine if I open a GitHub issue for this, it... keep reading on reddit ➡
I work for a company that does not in any way shape or form respect employee privacy. First privacy invasion incident was being forced to join a Whatsapp group for all of the 80+ key staff. Meaning handing out personal phone numbers to every single one of the key staff members of the group. Figure out a way to get around that with a text-free number.
Second incident: An email was sent out with some instructions. Problem is, the person who sent out the instructions obviously had no idea how to use an email and just send it with everyone's emails lumped together. Which means now our emails were exposed to every single 80+ key staff personnel.
Third incident: Our HR sent a message to the whatsapp group saying she would be emailing our phone numbers to other employees to call us in regards to making sure instructions were followed. Out of curiosity, I messaged HR and asked what number was going to be emailed out as I had already provided my text-free work number to them. Sure enough, s... keep reading on reddit ➡
I own a flat in London, and there is one flat above. The flat above has a smaller footprint than mine, so there is a flat roof above my bedroom at the rear. I also own the freehold for the building; my neighbour is leasehold.
I lived abroad for the last ten years and last year moved back into my flat. I discovered that whilst I was away, my upstairs neighbour has installed a roof terrace on the flat roof above my bedroom, along with installing a new door to access it (where there was formerly a window). I checked the title deeds, which confirm that the flat roof does not form part of her property, but belongs to me. She installed the terrace without asking me for permission. She also did not apply for planning permission from the local council.
I am bothered by this. In the winter, I didn't notice it much but now it is warmer, she is out there a lot and I hear her thumping around above my bedroom. She often hosts noisy gatherings on the terrace, which I can also hear in my bedroom.... keep reading on reddit ➡

I have a daughter (13) with an ex who was not in her life. We were young, in our early 20s, when she was born. My ex wasn't ready to give up her life and be a mom yet so I assumed full custody. She had another child when our daughter was 9 and never spoke to our daughter again or really acknowledged her. I remarried as well and my wife has been an amazing stepmom to my daughter.
My daughter was diagnosed with cancer in 2016. I made sure to let my ex know of course and sent periodic updates. She didn't visit or call and basically things went on as normal.
