I’ve been literally helping my best friend out so much these past few months: brainstorming with him and editing his essays, giving him advice on extracurriculars, everything. I comforted him when he cried to me about how he was so scared to get rejected from his dream Ivy because his parents would be ashamed of him. I‘ve been such a good friend.
And what does he do to me? While he’s over at my house, and I’m helping him craft his essays, I go to the bathroom. And when I come back, I catch him ready to click “withdraw” on my submitted application (We’re applying to the same school, but I submitted a week early, while he hadn’t applied yet.)
I can’t even believe he did that. I know both of us have the “T20 or bust” mentality, but I’m a lot nicer about it than he is. He’s a lot more manipulative than me.
I was soooooo mad. I asked him if he was seriously going to withdraw my application behind my back, and he admitted it. I couldn’t even look at him, so I told him to leave, which he did.
Later, I texted him and told him I wasn’t going to edit his essays for his dream school. (He’s not a good writer at all).
But then he called me at midnight in tears, apologizing and begging me to edit his essays. He just kept repeating “I’ll get rejected. I’ll get rejected,” and he could barely even talk.
Me being such a pushover, I ended up consoling him and, yes, I did edit his essays. God, I hate myself.
Source here >Armica Nabaa and Kamisha Shelman filed a lawsuit against Philadelphia 76ers center Dwight Howard, claiming unpaid wages after he fired them in January.
>TMZ Sports reported the women are claiming at least $50,000 in unpaid wages for services rendered, including taking care of Howard's exotic snake collection.
>The suit says Howard hired Nabaa and Shelman in December 2018 to handle "business affairs and administrative tasks" but soon were given more extended duties. Responsibilities allegedly included tasks that were previously held by Howard's groundskeeper, butler and maid, who were fired by the three-time Defensive Player of the Year.
>Nabaa also says she helped Howard sign with the Los Angeles Lakers last offseason using her "network and contacts."
>Howard has not responded to any of the claims made in the suit.
Dwight gonna Dwight, I guess lmfao
My roommate asked me to watch his snakes while he went out of town to deal with some family issues. I told him I didn’t want to have to feed them (they eat mice and it freaks me out).
He said his snakes can last without food for a month and fed them about a week before he left, so they were supposed to be fine while he was gone. All I had to do was clean their tanks a little check on their water, and make sure their heat lamps were working.
My roommate had to continue pushing of returning home because of his family issues. Now it’s been more than three weeks and he’s definitely not going to be able to come home for another week, maybe longer. So now my roommate expects me to feed his snakes because it wouldn’t be healthy for them to go so long without a meal.
To feed them I would have to open the creepy black container in the freezer, take out some frozen dead mice, and thaw them. He said two of the snakes don’t take thawed mice unless they have to fight for it. So I would have to dangle them in front of the snakes until the grabbed on and tug on it until they started swallowing. He’s got tongs, but it’s still not pleasant.
I already asked about him getting someone else to come over and do it, but he’s kind of a loner and doesn’t have anyone he can call.
He says I’m responsible since I agreed to look after them. I just feel like I was clear I did not want to have to feed any of them. When he last called me he was freaking out and crying because he didn’t want his snakes to die too.
I certainly don’t want them to die, but even considering that I just don’t feel willing to feed them and I just feel like I want to run away from this whole situation. I’m already thinking if this ends badly he’ll get very angry and I’ll have to find another roommate, but maybe we’re both over reacting and everything will be fine.
Edit. I’ll try looking online to see if I can find someone else to do it, but I just can’t do it myself.
Update: Okay, I think I have it figured out guys.
I decided giving my address out to some random guy online wasn’t the safest idea, especially since I’m going to be home alone for awhile. The pet store nearby gave me some advice, but said they wouldn’t do it because they didn’t want to be liable if something went wrong.
But the I remembered my roommate left me his vets number. So I called them and they said they would feed them if I brought them in. So now Im going to pack them up like the vet people said and drive them over.
Update 2:... keep reading on reddit ➡
