Yesterday I was riding the bus home with a good friend of mine. We were sitting and talking about what we should do when we got to my place and I told her I really wanted to show her Hannah Gadsby's Nanette.
Suddenly I'm feeling something on my left upper thigh/ upper butt cheek. I'm looking down, because I thought my cigarettes might be falling out of my pocket or something, but it felt wrong. And then I notced a man sitting on the seat behind me. My mind instantly thought of the posts I've read here from women being groped on the bus. Women who have stayed silent, because they were unsure if what they were really experiencing it or because they've been taught to never make a scene. I've been taught the same. I'm dead scared of confrontation and I constantly doubt my self.
I'm also trying to learn self-love and building self-worth.
We're almost at our stop and we discuss getting off soon. I still wasn't sure if I was actually touched by the man behind me, but decided I would share... keep reading on reddit ➡
A stranger sent me $585 "for motorcycle tires" and now he is requesting i send it back. Is this one of those scams where I send the money and then the original $585 disappears, leaving me the loser?
I’ll try keep this short.
I needed to go to the store to buy a few items. I always drive but for this particular day I decided to walk. As I returned from the store, I was walking through an unfamiliar neighborhood and I saw a man who looked to be around his 50s sitting on a porch and smoking. He was very tall and buff and I was a bit intimidated so I tried to walk by his house quickly.
The man waves at me and got up from his porch so I stopped walking and i simply said, “hello.” He asked me if I could help carry things from his shed to his house since his belongings were too heavy to carry on his own. The man pointed at his shed which was very small and shabby, and I couldn’t really see anything inside of it since it was so dark.
I am a very small person. I’m 5 feet and 2 inches and I’m quite thin. I literally look weak so I really didn’t know why he was asking me of all people. I noticed that he didn’t ask anyone who was walking infront of me on the sidewalk as I was nearing his h... keep reading on reddit ➡
Honestly I liked season 1 , i started watching it because of mystery. In the later seasons they started to focus on those kids more. And what the hell was that season 3. I've seriously never experienced that amount of cringe in a TV show. Or probably I hate it because of too many people started watching it and filled the youtube comment section with annoying comments. I get so triggered when some people say it's the "best show ever". It doesn't deserve the attention it got. I got much more to say just don't know how to express it
Edit: I'm bad at writing opinions, but what i meant to say was half of the fans are immature and annoying that's what made me hate it even more. I forgot to add that how the story-telling was weak in the last season i don't just hate it because it's popular.
And to everyone who has/is going to recommend Dark I'm watching it and it's waaay better. Absolutely amazing.
there is a youtuber that calls himself a pick up artist and he has videos where he puts up a picture of me and him posing together. this is a random stranger that took a picture with me at a club years ago. long story short: he talks about his "ex" and he puts my picture up claims i dated him and that i'm a cheater. 1 million percent fabricated and really embarrassing to me for obvious reasons. i've written to youtube and youtube just ignores me. i've also debated getting a lawyer, but for one thing i'm broke. but also i don't know if that'd even be a legit case to take/a wsate of time. i've asked him about this multiple times but he monitors his comments and chats and just deletes my comments and now has blocked me.. i really want it taken down and ideally for him to clear the air and clear my name. also, could this be considered some form of stalking? he is 20 plus years older than me and insanely creepy and his channel is mostly about hating women. so....he's fucking creepy. when i... keep reading on reddit ➡
Anyone else? Just me? Ok
I've been asking ever since we met her on Venus, Who was she talking to? When we met her, she was having a conversation with someone on the other end of her coms line. It seems like the other person/people on the end of that line have heard of us since she says that she is with us in reply. We aren't that famous yet. We hadn't killed any gods. We may have showed promise from what fought on our way to Venus but not enough to warrant the attention of the stranger since our resurrection and those she talked with.
So here is my theory, what if she was talking to someone from the present time of Beyond Light? What if the Exo Stranger of Beyond Light has not met us yet and we are the reason D1 Exo Stranger is following us from our resurrection back in D1? We fill her in on what happened in D1 during or post Beyond Light and she goes back to ensure it all happens?
When she disappears after the D1 campaign, she returns to the Beyond Light time just after she had left that time? It can come f... keep reading on reddit ➡
I experienced every parent nightmare. Have been with the little one on the playground and was talking with someone from work over phone and after I finished I couldn't find my daughter in the sandbox she was literally 3 minutes ago.
I started to look for her and asked some other guy if he saw her. He said she walked with a guy who looked like her older brother and he pointed a direction. I freezed. I literally freezed. I've been through a lot, but if would have to point out the scariest 10s of my life - that would be it. And the direction was a little forest next to the playground. Yes, we've been telling million times to her not to go with strangers
I rushed into this place and saw her with this dude. He was like 20, or so. I think I beat my personal best for a 100m dash and yelled at this man what he is doing. He started to talk some crap about some rabbit hole he wanted to show or so.
I lost it. I literally lost it and feel ashamed of my self I could keep myself together but I... keep reading on reddit ➡
I pre-ordered my Stranger Edition with them on the 10th June and I’ve yet to have the pre-order show up on my account or receive my pre-order bonuses.
They have no phone number to call for customer service and after various failed attempts to get a resolution via their live chat I’ve just been disconnected twice after reaching #1 in the queue, after waiting nearly 45mins EACH TIME.
I am completely powerless to take my business elsewhere I can’t source this from anywhere else.
If you have retailer exclusives, please choose a reliable company!!!!
EDIT: Crikey, my first ever gold award! Thank you very much! I hope this brings attention to an issue quite a few people are having.
As someone born in 2002, I have really learned to appreciate the 80s. If I could go back in time, this is the period I would choose. From the music to just the overall atmosphere. This show has made me appreciate so many things and I am grateful for it.
Edit: wow! see the bottom for a quick response.
Last week, my wife and I decided it was finally time to end our quarantine and go into town for a veggie burger and a beer. As I ran in from the garden, I slipped on the concrete steps and came down really hard, breaking my femur right where it connects the knee joint. Thankfully it is stable and doesn't need surgery, but it is incredibly painful and I decided to forgo taking opiate pain medications after closing that chapter of my life over a decade ago.
Thankfully I live in a legal state, so I was quickly able to find a place nearby that sells a lovely Chocolate Tonic strain that comes in at 7% THC and 15% CBD that works wonders on the pain.
I ran out yesterday and worked out a ride to the dispensary so I could pick up a new order. As the tender bagged it up, I learned that the ATM was having problems and was not going to work. A little exasperated (it really hurts to be on my feet, even with crutches), I stared at the machine and pl... keep reading on reddit ➡
TLDR: a guest threw a huge bash at my parents home and property was destroyed.
So this girl reached out to rent our Airbnb for the weekend. It is my parents and sisters full time home and they come stay with me when they have guests. My parents aren’t really in a good place financially and it’s a good way for them to make extra money. The house rules state no parties or events. The security deposit is $5,000 and it states we can charge up to $50 per extra guest.
Anyway, the girls said she and four other couples would be staying to have a goodbye barbecue for a friend that was deploying. My mom isn’t really tech savvy and took her word for it without looking into anything further.
About 4 pm this Saturday, we get a call from a neighbor saying that there are at least 40+ vehicles parked in our yard. My mom calls the guest and asks her to make everyone leave. She apologized and said word got out on social media and it got out of hand. Mom gets the sheriff to go up to the property and... keep reading on reddit ➡
This week I went out for a run for the first time in several years. I’ve lost a lot of fitness in those years, and have been struggling with post-infectious fatigue for past couple of months, so I decided to just run as far as I could and then walk for a while.
Just after I’d started walking, I passed an older gentleman, who (clearly thinking he was hilarious) told me that I want to stop slacking and keep running. At this point my heart rate was 198 and I felt sick, so I just gave him a “phew, I’m knackered” face and kept walking, but it really bothered me.
It’s not an isolated incident either: it used to happen a lot when I was running regularly in the past, and when I complained to a friend she said the same thing happens to her too. We asked her husband, who is a very keen runner and therefore spends a lot of time out running/walking, and he said it’s never happened to him.
Obviously a sample size of three isn’t really representative, so I’m wondering: have any of you had the sa... keep reading on reddit ➡
I took it upon myself 6 months ago to make a trip from Florida to Russia without the use of a plane. It was the riskiest thing I have ever done in my life. I took a bus from Florida to New York. From there I took the Queen Mary 2 to Britain. From Britain I took the high speed train to Belgium. I had planned ahead and booked about 4 more trains from Belgium to Warsaw, Ukraine, then to Russia. With that being said it was a nightmare. I had overestimated my luggage considering i was carrying a large suitcase, a backpack, and a guitar in a case. My hands were full but that wasn't the worst part. The trains i booked were not one way. They were all public trains with dozens of stops in between. I didnt realize until i got to Belgium that I wouldn't be going to sleep the ENTIRE trip to Russia.
The trains from Belgium to Germany were some of the most stressful situations I've ever experienced in my life. Every single time I got off and on another train I had just 10 mins most of the time to... keep reading on reddit ➡
My dad wants to marry someone my sister and I don’t know, 10 months after our mum died.
Our dad told us on Tuesday of his plans to marry someone in November. Our mum, his wife of 43 years died in July 2019.
My (34f) and my sister (36f) had our dad tell us he is going to marry someone he ‘reconnected’ with in November. We live in Australia and the person he is going to marry lives in England (where he and my mum were from).
My parents moved to Australia 42 years ago, when they married at 19/20. My sister and I have only ever lived in Aus, with just brief time in England when we were young and in our early 20s. We don’t know our aunties and uncles, except for Facebook, and the brief reunions when were all in England.
Our mum died in July last year after a 6 month battle with ovarian cancer. Our dad told us in January that he had reconnected with an old childhood friend of theirs and some feelings were developing. He initially told us that nothing would happen for 2 years because tha... keep reading on reddit ➡
If you need a positive interaction that doesn't last long, find something nice to say to them. It's always a quick exchange, and can be extended as long as you want most of the time. Not only does it feel good to brighten their day, it also helps build confidence for longer chats with people. I find it helps when my anxiety makes me afraid of people.
Edit: this blew up and there's a lot of self depreciation here. 1. You can be ugly and still have positive interactions with strangers. Also you probably aren't as ugly as you think. 2. If they treat you poorly, or react in a way you don't expect, or even made you uncomfortable PLEASEPLEASEPLEASE know that you still left your comfort zone, and said actual words to a stranger. That is scary and it is huge and you are brave. Stick with it, not everyone is receptive to compliments but you will make someone's whole week at some point. 3. You can compliment people outside your "prospective partner" groups because being nice doesn't have to be... keep reading on reddit ➡

One day I was grocery shopping and I had gotten to the checkout. I loaded all my groceries onto the belt and was watching the cashier do her thing when the wild Karen made herself known. Apparently she did not approve of the bottle of cooking sherry that I had planned to add to my pot roast.
Karen: You shouldn’t use that stuff. You should go get real sherry. That stuff just tastes terrible.
Karen starts in criticizing the other groceries she doesn’t approve of going on and on about how this is nasty and that is awful. I’d finally had enough.
Me: I’m sorry. I forget sometimes, but when were we introduced? I only ask because I honestly cannot remember inviting you to dinner.
The cashier got this huge grin. Karen moved to a different checkout.
EDIT: I live in a dry county. It’s not really worth it to drive two counties over to find a liquor store. Not for pot roast.
Minors, stop stating your age on posts. The witchcraft community attracts a large number of teenagers and unfortunately, pedophiles. It’s nearly always unnecessary to state that you’re ‘16’ in posts. People don’t need to know. Never send photos of yourself and be cautious.
Now that the weather's great and most places remain closed because of COVID-19, I've noticed so many more people smiling, waving and even moving out of the way for me.
A couple of days ago an old lady said "wow you're so fast" and another person today said " you're crazy to be running in this heat. great work!"
I'm by no means a great runner but these compliments and small gestures truly make my runs worthwhile!
Only downside - its hard to not speed up when someone compliments how fast you're running!
That’s pretty much it, in the title. I just think RoastMe is a gross sub that the user base disguises actually mean comments with disingenuous humor. “You’re ugly, never mind your wife died a horrible death, I woulda died too. Haha jk it’s a joke subreddit”
Edit: So many of you posting the same obvious comment. YES, I am very aware, as is anyone who posts there, are aware of the fact that they “know what they’re getting into”. I’m not arguing otherwise. What y’all illiterates aren’t picking up is the multiple times I’m saying they’re doing it out of a bad mental place, to self-harm. It’s evident that anyone who can’t understand this hasn’t ever been in the mental state where you just wanna hurt yourself mentally or physically to make yourself feel worse because in a twisted, fucked up way, it feels good at the same time. Stop saying the same comment over and over. Read other comments, realize you saying “thEy KNow wHaT theey gEt inTo!” Has been commented a dozen times prior.
In Season of Dawn we went back in time and saved Saint-14 and encouraged him to fight for the Last City, had we not been there to help him the Destiny universe would probably be different. Specifically this part of the Season.
Crackpot Spinfoil Theory: I think The Exo Stranger is pulling a very similar stunt going all the way back to the mission A Stranger's Call, cutscene here.
I'm convinced that The Exo Stranger in that cutscene is talking to the Beyond Light Guardian and Ghost, and Beyond Light Guardian is telling the Exo Stranger to convince our past self (D1 Vanilla Guardian) to keep fighting by taking out the Heart of the Black Garden.
I mean, had the Exo Stranger not told the Guardian about the Black Garden, Darkness would have consumed the system way early on and the big story beats would have never happened throughout the franchise's history (i.e, the Traveler awakening, the Pyramids arriving, and now the... keep reading on reddit ➡

I love the internet b/c I have met random people that are bigger supporters of my successes than people I've known my entire life.
Tell me about a time a random internet stranger impacted your life.
I’m a 28 year old female
Have you ever felt totally afraid, like your body tenses up and you feel your stress hormones preparing you to flee when in the company of a random stranger with no apparent threatening characteristics (including subtleties). I’ll give you a couple examples, there is a family friend of my parents who has always been completely normal and kind and has never done anything that warranted a fear response in me, however, every time I’ve seen him (maybe 5 times my whole life) I shiver, feel instantly nauseous, and then a little shameful for the stress it causes me. I always have to exit the room after a minute or so in his presence. He doesn’t smell or anything and I don’t have any childhood trauma that could pinpoint this feeling I get. I honestly feel guilty about it. I can’t explain it and I know I must have looked crazy.
Over the years, I’ve had these feelings about other people, both men and women a handful of times. Just last year I got the same icky feeli... keep reading on reddit ➡
Desjardins wearing 69 and Coyle wearing 3 as a forward come to mind for me.
tl;dr: there are very nice people out there and always check your pockets before riding.
So I was riding yesterday and just pulled up on a gas station because I only had like 3 liters left and was far away from home.
Filling up as usual and wanting to pay I realized, that I couldn't find my wallet. Stunned for a second or two, I went searching in every pocket, or if I dropped it. Nothing, I left it at home, and already filled up my bike.
This woman, parked in front of me and facing me (waiting for me to finish to use my gas pump), walked up to me and asked if I had any trouble filling up, like the pump was broken or something.
I answered no and explained that I forgot my wallet, and was not from the region.
She thought for a moment, took out her wallet and gave me 20€ to pay my gas bill. I could not believe what was happening and didn't want to accept at first, but she insisted on giving me the money. I asked for bank details, PayPal, anything to give it back to her later on, b
