I was raised in a Christian household but never believed in it, and when I went off to college I was pretty open to admit that I wasn’t Christian because I wasn’t stuck at home and wouldn’t have any backlash. When I come home for holidays and such, they usually ask me if I’ve been to church and remind me to “keep God first”, I just nod my head and don’t say much because it isn’t worth the fight to me, and listening doesn’t hurt anyone. They are well aware of my views so I don’t feel the need to reiterate or always be on the defensive.
A few months ago, I went to visit my cousin who likes to debate, so we started debating religion. Bad idea obviously, she ended up saying that I made her feel stupid and crazy and we haven’t spoken since then. I’m certain that she told her parents (my aunt and uncle) because ever since that incident, they have hardcore been pressuring me to “accept god’s light” and “listen to him” every single conversation since then.
Yesterday (thanksgiving) my aunt... keep reading on reddit ➡
My wife (23f) and I (32m) have a two year old daughter Amelia together. My wife was visiting with her mother the day before thanksgiving when Amelia had a temper tantrum and hit my wife. It happens, Amelia was reprimanded and apologized (my wife is a preschool teacher so she’s amazing at navigating these types of behaviors. This isn’t a common occurrence, but anyone who has kids knows that two year olds can be testy sometimes.
I find out that my mother in law had been talking to her sister and saying that “Amelia must be seeing that type of behavior at home” and it’s “absolutely devastating” that her granddaughter is being raised in a “house like ours”.
My mother in law has a tendency to be over dramatic. We all know this. But I feel that this took it a step too far. Insinuating that I would ever hurt my wife is a deal breaker for me.
My wife agreed that we should uninvite her to the small thanksgiving gathering we were having (it was 7 people). Now her mother is using this to tell... keep reading on reddit ➡
Cracks Knuckles Alrighty folks, I just got banned so I can finally share this story.
I joined a West Marches server back in August and since my joining I’d become one of the most active members in the quiet server. At the time of my joining, the Head DM (let’s call him Doge) was somewhat inactive so I’d been playing under one of the hands-down best DMs of my DnD career (shout out to you man).
This past month every DM is taking a break and the Head DM finally returns. I’d been excited to finally play one of his games and immediately signed up for the second game he was going to run since I missed the first one. Little did I know what I was getting into.
A bit of background info: the server is very combat based but the three DMs I had played with encouraged at least a good bit of roleplay and didn’t stifle us when we tried.
So we start the game and things are going okay so far, most all of us from the group had played together before and one of the DM’s best friends were there.... keep reading on reddit ➡
This is our weekly space for ranting about allllllll the things.
I'm so frustrated. So awhile ago, my husband and I had the talk with my in-laws that we likely would not be celebrating Thanksgiving together with the rising covid numbers. Everyone has different personal covid rules, and let's just say our's are much different than my in-laws.
They were disappointed but seemed to be ok with it. Last week they brought it up again and asked if we changed our mind. We said no, we don't feel comfortable celebrating as a large family this year. Without going in to too much detail, I suffer from a condition called endometriosis that causes me to grow lesions, ovarian cysts and causes a lot of pain. I've been in the middle of a particularly bad flare up this past month or so. I'm exhausted. It hurts to move and I can barely walk. Right now I need a lot of help. I actually ended up in the ER last week because I woke up in the middle of the night with excruciating pain, I thought I had a cyst burst. My doctor has told me I need to take care of myself and res... keep reading on reddit ➡
Its like being at a zoo. You see the animals in their enclosures peacefully grazing or looking at you. Then there's the chimpanzee enclosure and this guy is thrashing about and screaming at you. What do you do? You're supposed to walk away from there till they calm down, or you can laugh, torment and antagonize him more resulting in the zookeepers to come tell you to fuck off or kick you out or both. I'm figuratively speaking and not degrading anyone but how we interact with each other out in the real world is almost no different than being at a zoo. When an unnecessary and avoidable situation rears its ugly head, its up to you to just observe or you can interact with them to wind up with them in their enclosure sifting in their shit too.
So if Karen is enraged at you and calling you every blasphemy ever for purchasing the last PS5 just think about zoo animals. Be the observer and just walk away. Or if Billy Bob is tailgating you in his lifted Dodge deluxe , be the observer and let... keep reading on reddit ➡
"We’re scheduled to begin maintenance for all platforms at 4:00 p.m. ET, and we expect Fallout 76 to be offline for around six hours." - Besthesdas post today
Microsoft fucked up and updated early. Bethesda did not give the green light. Xbox has already done that a few times this month to other games.
Bethesda is literally scrambling so xbox players can play, and decided to launch the update early to get everyone on steel dawn, and not just xbox. Xbox players have been unable to play WAY longer than a lot of us. Relax.
Yea beth doesnt have a good track record rn. Just... be patient. Server shit is not fun to update and it doesnt always go perfectly.
Edit: PC IS UP
Yes he's the first lottery pick by the spurs since 1997 but don't think he's going to be the next Tim Duncan because of that. It's not right to put that kind of pressure on him. We should have smaller expectations for him, like the next David Robinson.
My mother, who is 47 years old, is throwing a goddamn temper tantrum because I stayed till 10:40 PM last night to finish an assignment for college. I'm sick of this shit, act like an adult instead of a spoiled brat. Wow I stayed up past my bedtime, what a huge fuckin deal, it's totally the end of the world. She thinks I should be completing my assignments in no time at all. Last night, I literally told her, "If it's so easy, why don't YOU help me with it?". She promptly started bitching about how much of a brat I am, how cruel I was for staying up that late, and how disrespectful I was for backtalking to her. Damn, I guess it doesn't feel so great when you can't step all over your kid, does it? I didn't even cuss at her and she acts like I'm some vermin off the street. How the hell am I going to complete anything if I don't utilize the time I have? I'm dumb as all hell, I need all the time I can get. It's not fair when other students have the ability to stay up late to finish their wor... keep reading on reddit ➡
So this guy, probably in his mid to late 30s, comes up to the counter and starts in on how he had his PS5 in the online basket all ready to go and then the site crashes. I know, I know, you've all heard this story a zillion times now here, on other web sites and in the store. But stick around to see what the country has become.
He then proceeds to tell us that he knows we have some in the back and he wants one. Now, not later, not tomorrow, but now. He drove all the way from his parent's basement. OK, he didn't say his parent's basement but you get the idea of how this guy was moving along. Physically he was an aggressive loser if that makes sense.
Trying to explain to the guy that we had, past tense, some PS5 earlier in the day and they were for online sales ONLY went nowhere fast. The guy was starting to freak out. Time to call a manager. First manager got nothing but a broken record from the guy. He wanted "his" PS5 that he was cheated out of. A second manager magically appears a... keep reading on reddit ➡
My Dad will repetitively argue and yell at my Mother about things he is mistaken about. I know it did no good but i told him to stop talking to her like that and we got into an argument. I feel terrible and guilty but when he is mad about some imagined thing he cant be redirected or ignored. I am very stressed and ashamed of myself and don't know what to do anymore.
So, it seems that reddit is turning into my venting place, but I was wondering where the limit is between being very emotional and choleric? It's a recurring problem, so it must be an issue I have, but I get very pissed when I notice that other people have a questionable work ethic. I hold in for a while, but when I get the feeling that people lack common sense ,well, there comes a time when I explode. And tho I think it's always for a reason, it's affecting my professional life. For instance, the esfp colleague who joined the team shortly after me. She is really young, unexperieced and ...not really hardworking. In the begining I found her sweet, funny, but then I realized that she is doing just enough, knowing that I'll do the rest. Today was the same, she came at work in the afternoon and just had a seat, while there was work to do. I lost my patience and told her ( loud volume) that she could help. Unfortunately our supervisor was rather on her side, cause my tone was inappropriat... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi. I'm Donovan. I've been playing video games since I was a young wee little child. Something that has bothered me recently is this subreddit's incessant urge to shit down nikita/bsg's throat for the presence of bugs and glitches in Tarkov. I'd like to add some context.
Video games have bugs.
Ive been playing league of legends for about 8/9 years. Riot games is rich AS FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK. Their game is a buggy piece of shit.
Minecraft is an excellent game. I've been playing it for more than 10 years. It is a buggy piece of shit.
Grand theft Auto 5 is an excellent game. I've played it loads. It is a buggy piece of shit.
Fallout new vegas is an excellent game. When it came out it was plagued with bugs the likes have never been seen, but they patched em, and its still a buggy piece of shit.
I've played CSGO. I've played Overwatch. I've played Apex. You know what all these games have in common.... near constant game breaking bugs. I'm not talking netcode/desync buzzwo... keep reading on reddit ➡
