A roofing company did work on my home instead of the home next to mine.
This is a rental property of mine and the tenant was not home during the times the work was done. I was contacted by the roofing company that they had accidentally worked on my roof. They told me that they can give me a good deal for this error and i refused saying that they did the mistake and i didnt ask for this to be done to my home.
they told me they have the right to remove all the work done because it's their material. I told them they are not to come back on my property or else I will call the cops. They have been constantly calling me to pay or they want to take all the roofing off as it is their material and they are entitled to it.
do they have the right to remove the shingles? do i have to pay them or can i simply tell them to fuck off
So after having some down time for a while due to Covid-19, I had been doing multiple small renovations and updates around my house. And a few weeks ago I got around to updating some insulation in my attic and creating a small storage area in part of my attic.
First time I went into the attic was just to make a material list and take some measurements. But I had noticed some leaves and twigs in one area near some insulation that had been blown down (it's a split level house, and this is where the levels connect). When I investigated to see where it was coming from I found a spot where the roof connects, and there was a hole big enough to fit my hand through it.
I got frustrated by another demonstration of incompetent work from the previous owner (he owned a shitty contractor company that had redone the roof a few years prior). So I added some more things to my list for fixing the hole I had discovered, took a picture of the hole on my phone, then came out of the attic to price ever... keep reading on reddit ➡
As a child about 8-9, I witnessed my dad falling off the roof of our garage. My parents were putting a new roof on it. My dad was drunk. I heard the bang and saw him on the ground. I don’t remember the ambulance coming but it must have? I wrote a story about this in elementary school and I reread it recently and couldn’t believe the impact it had on me as a child.
Another time my dad went to get my brother and I McDonalds for dinner and he left and didn’t come back. When our doorbell rang, it was a police officer. He had the McDonald’s in his hands. That was the day my dad wrecked my mom’s favorite van.
Another memory that stands out is one that affected my brother. For Father’s Day, he took dad to a baseball game. My dad got so drunk that he pissed himself and had to be walked/carried out by my brother before the game even started.
Having these experiences in my life still wasn’t enough to implore me to stop drinking and I had to live through my own trials and tribulations.

My sister and I have inherited a beach house from our parents and we each use it for 2-3 weeks every summer. I usually get the first set of weeks with my family, she gets the next set.
My kids and her son, Kevin, love it there, so they usually end up staying for their whole summer vacation. We'll have Kevin stay with us when we have the beach house and my sister will have my kids over when my wife and I are back in the city. It works for all of us and we've never had any real problems in the 5 years we are doing things that way.
Now, my sister and I are white, but Kevin is mixed-race. And he's at an age (13) where he's started making some very prolific use of a certain word. My wife and I don't approve of it, so we told him to stop using it. He didn't really care and hasn't stopped.
I called my sister to tell her what was happening and to ask her how I should handle it.
She saw nothing wrong with his behavior and didn't think that there's anything for me to handle.
I disagreed and... keep reading on reddit ➡
That door was never there before.
Heard a story on Storytime that reminded me of my own. I was a delivery driver for Pizza hut. Big red car topper!! Made a delivery to an apartment. Just after i got into my car, and was typing in the next location on GPS, My back door opens. I turn and look at this lady dumbfounded. "Uhhh, can i help you?" "Oh. Do you prefer i sit up front?" "No. I prefer you don't get in my car at all" "Huh?? Aren't you my Uber?" "Lol. NO. I work for Pizza Hut." "Oh i didn't know" "Giant red topper and pizza hut uniform wasnt a clue?" "Oops. Sorry." Had a few more like that. People walking up to me about rides, etc. eyerolls
It seems like the majority of these issues have come from situations like this. Someone way too young was practically living in a house owned by someone much older. This is pretty much only considered "normal" in the fighting games community, and now we're finally seeing what everyone silently expected all along.
Yes, the parents should have done something to prevent it from escalating to the point of their young teen basically living with adult strangers, but we can't always count on that. It needs to become known in the community that if you have a young teen sleeping in the same house as you, that's going to be seen as really, really weird and suspicious from now on.
We can't prosecute people, we can't ban them from tournaments, we can't then really take their popularity away since there will always be people willing to forgive them. Let the law handle prosecution and let tournament management handle torments. What we can do is cause a shift in community attitude to make this sort... keep reading on reddit ➡
Sorry, but why? Why are we wasting time fixing stuff that doesn't actually need fixing, doesn't hurt anyone and actually makes for some interesting camp designs? I guess this makes mine and my girlfriend's Legacy Camps? (we both built in/on existing structures where placing foundations is not possible and would spoil the look completely)
Some of the building restrictions I completely understand. The rest seem like unnecessary punishment for those who love building.
I said, “You’re the ones blocking!”
As we all know a lot of people could work at home in the past few months for obvious reasons, me and my sisters that are moved out are among those people. Just to make it clear I have got 6 sisters between the ages of 30 and 17, I am 25 and a guy myself.
Now my mom saw this as the perfect opportunity to ask all of us to come home and spend the coming months as one big family, all my sisters happily obliged but I declined despite my mom desperately trying to convince me to come since unlike my sisters, I rarely visit.
The reason for that is quite simple, I hated my childhood. Being the only guy in the family was pretty shitty, I never felt like I was part of the family, everything we did with the family or got for the family was girls stuff, I was always ganged up on during arguments, I never brought home friends after my sisters started dating my 3 of my friends causing me to be made fun off at school which caused me to ditch having a social life, I once brought home a girlfriend and... keep reading on reddit ➡
In the Middle East homes only have flat roofs so that families can make use of it as a rooftop and an extra floor to the home. Pointed roofs seem like a waste of good space..or is there a benefit?
