Pig tax http://imgur.com/gallery/JXqtDgb
My son is 10, 1 year ago he asked for a pet Guinea pig. We have a large garden so I agreed but only with some terms.
I would cover the upkeep of food, bedding and pig treats and toys.
He would have to save up half the money for a large hutch and I would pay for a large outdoor run, he agreed and did his chores and for his birthday I paid for 2 Guinea pigs from a local seller.
My son named the guinea pigs pudding and candy. Within days of buying them my son lost interest, he refused to feed them, refused to clean them and refused to move their run around the garden so they were on fresh grass.
I warned him multiple times that I would take possession of the pigs as my own, I discussed with my husband before we got them that I would quite enjoy having them in the gard... keep reading on reddit ➡
Back when my JN sister was planning her wedding, her even more JNMIL wanted to be involved. Unfortunately for everyone involved, she wanted her family traditions involved. The food...okay, the giant line dance...okay, but then she sprang the big one on my poor mother.
It was apparently a tradition in her family that unmarried older daughters had to do a dance in a pig trough at the reception. JN sister and JNBIL thought that would be hilarious. Being that I was the only unmarried older daughter...hahahaha. So funny.
My poor JYMom was getting torn down by JNMIL (because it was just a JOKE...that was repeated and insisted on in every single phone call), and trying to protect me from that bullshit. But finally, I saw her crying and she told me what was going on.
Note here that I was only a short time out of a very abusive relationship and I literally had no more fucks to give. My fucks had runneth dry, as the song goes. I didn't have a shiny spine so much as one made of a contr... keep reading on reddit ➡
ANSWERED: See copious edits & comments.
Okay this is weird.
My partner and I went for a run on Saturday, and when we came back I noticed something small and fuzzy tucked into a corner of the garden. Turns out, it's a piglet (maybe a micropig). My other half is a vet and says it's got no obvious injuries, but more notably (and annoyingly) it has no identification - no tattoos, no ear tag. We've bagged it for now, though obvsiously need to get rid of it asap.
We're suspecting it's someone's escaped (or dumped) pet that's died of exposure... Quite sad.
But now the issue; as a pig, it's a lot harder to move around as it's technically livestock. The local vets can't take it as there won't be the associated paperwork for moving livestock, DEFRA have no idea (and suggested trading standards?!), and NFSCO have directed us to the nackers.
We want to get rid properly, and NFSCO said over the phone that it's the owners responsibility. Or failing that, the landowner's responsibility.... keep reading on reddit ➡
Recently the wife and I have come upon what some would say a “rocky road” within our relationship. We’ve been married for 9 years, being introduced to each other by some of my college buds, one of which being my therapist, we’ll get to that later.
After our son entered the 1st Grade, we hit the initial bumps. It seemed she was constantly berating me about how I should do physical activities with my son. I recognize that relations are all about compromise, so I folded (happy wife, happy life), I took him to my parent’s place. I’m glad I folded then, in all honesty, it was a great time. We’ve tried to make it a bi-monthly thing ever since, though my wife didn’t seem too keen on it. It always seemed she was avoiding the trips, like she was jealous she couldn’t be with my son, even though she has all the time she wants with him while I’m away at work.
The straw that broke the camel's back it seems was when I returned home from work late one night, when I entered our house, I quickly came... keep reading on reddit ➡
So this is a post on the PiGs outfit leader Pale
He is a poor player who logs on complains about something for an hour or two and then logs off
Here's what I've seen in my time in PiGs
- After the first outfit wars, he [PaleTig3r] kicked about 85% of all the people who were in it because they were online when he was on
- I was kicked because I did not want to join outfit wars 2
- Pale constantly curses out anyone who opposes his idea's and thoughts
- He has zero respect for anyone in the outfit except a chosen few people and by his words "gotta treat them like dogs" is how he runs squads if he's ever leading and not complaining
- He is extremely arrogant on numerous occasions his reason for something is "I'm br 100 and I know everything"
- After the second outfit wars, he kicked every leader in the wars because they lost
- All of the leaders in the first outfit wars also were kicked or left because they lost their friends
- During Outfit Wars he always tries to m... keep reading on reddit ➡
Because the chicken told him to teargas protestors for a photo-op
We are seeing that conversation in Snape’s memory, and Dumbledore simply did not tell Snape the full story. He never told anyone the whole story until he told it to Harry in the King’s Cross chapter.
From the end of GoF, Dumbledore knew, or rather, he was extremely confident that Harry could no longer die by Voldemort’s hand. That is what the look of triumph in his eyes was when Harry told him about the blood Voldemort took from him. From that moment on, Dumbledore was trying to orchestrate a situation that would lead to Voldemort’s downfall with the least amount of sacrifice necessary. And he knew that in order to do that, Harry would need to sacrifice himself willingly. Not be told to die for others, but choose to of his own free will.
Dumbledore could have had other very trustworthy people destroy the horcruxes. He had an entire group of highly devoted and skilled wizards at his disposal. But he needed it to be Harry - he needed Harry to see and fully understand what a perversio... keep reading on reddit ➡
