  4. We are pending! Got my magic number and no contingencies, but with a 32-day close because of the weekend. A little obnoxious because they sent it at 1 AM and the offer expired at 1 PM, so clearly they were trying to avoid any other offers coming in. We also had an open house from 11-1 today so they were trying to get that canceled or avoid bidding against anyone who went to that. In the end, the other offers said they had planned on offering $50k less than my magic number so we decided let's take a sure thing. I feel good, and I don't think we left money on the table because even though there

  5. Boom—got Jacob’s old SNES going. I figured out you have to firmly push the cartridge in to get it to work. It was Bennett’s 5th birthday. I have realized how far toys have come. You can build a Mario level out of legos then play it on n your phone…wtf is the wizardry.

  14. Why is Apollo so dumb? He solicits face washes from Eris. She licks him for a while, gets him all spitty, then BITES HIS FUCKING NECK. We warn him. "She's going to bite your neck." Lick, lick, schlorp, lick. "Dude, she's going to bite your fucking neck." Then she does. EVERY. DAMN. TIME. VID_20211023_011930155_HDR.mp4

  16. I HATE the YOU WILL RESPECT ME attitude many adults have when working with children. What was she expecting children do? This is a problem everywhere. Leading a group of anyone, especially groups of children, is challenging and takes a lot of training and experience. It is impossible to get a good sub...it is less impactful to break up classrooms and divide them out into other rooms than it is to have a bad sub. This weekend we drove an hour and a half to Telluride. Talk about a town that is dripping in gold coins but is essentially a ghost town. It is surreal. Half the stores are

  17. Tomorrow, I interview for another job in a different department and location. It means a steep pay cut for me if I get it, but I hope the stress level is less. Mental health before money I guess. Wish me luck. LOL.

  19. When we bought 8 years ago, it was a buyer's market, for sure. I remember there being so many houses available so we could afford to be picky, until all of a sudden things picked up and ours went pending and we lost 3 houses in a week and had to scramble for the one we ended up in. We had to sacrifice on a few things, like we wanted a 3 car garage and had to settle for 2 (and then it turned out that you couldn't actually fit 2 cars in it at the same time), and the yard was smaller than we really wanted but at least it was double our old yard. I really liked the house and Floorplan itself, thou

  20. Well and that's what disability is for. You can't work enough to sustain yourself because of your disability, so don't feel bad about it. This business appears to have a lot of rules designed to screw people out of their pay, like no holiday pay if you take the day before off. I mean, either they pay you for the holiday or not. Not to say anything of their clear favoritism towards morning girl, who has become an entitled pain in the ass because of it. Something is shady there. Honestly, the sooner you find another job, the better off you will be. Even if you get fired for something t

  21. Area/District manager for Frito-Lay. Been with Frito-Lay for 15 years. 2021 is worse than 2020. Can’t hire anyone, starting wage is $18.25 an hourly for merchandisers. 40 hours guaranteed, overtime if you want it, great benefits, 401k and a pension. I find myself running routes myself because we can’t hire anyone. We’re starting a $1000 sign on bonus for merchandisers and a $3000 sign on bonus for drivers starting next week, hopefully this will bring people in. On top of the labor shortages, there’s a national shortage on ingredients. Such as artificial colors, dyes, certain spices, dextr

  22. Things have been going well. I’m on a couple times a week, and I’ve really helped some people just by reaching out to them. Keeping the friends list tiny means that each person has value and I can check on them. And I’ve heard a lot about how lonely and disconnected people are, when they get past the surface and into the real nitty gritty, so I’m glad I’m able to help in some small way.

  24. Our realtor did say that she's already had some interest on putting in a early offer to avoid a bidding war. In my experience, that just starts the bidding war earlier. Our offer review deadline is Tuesday at noon because we would like to make a decision that night. But if someone puts in an offer this weekend, we've given our realtor our magic number and other details (no contingencies, close in 30 days or less, etc). But then she will turn around and call anyone who has shown interest and tell them we have an offer on the table and that they better put something together if they want to play

  28. This story is starting to have a happy ending. This bitch found out earlier this year that getting rid of me wasn't going to be a walk in the park. I think I've written before about how they (she and a couple of cohorts) tried to replace me and were constantly trying to go over my head to make complaints. Their problem back then was the fact that the people over my head who they were complaining to are friends of mine and our friendships predate our scouting relationships, so every time they received a complaint about me they weren't pre-disposed to take it at face value because they kno

  33. Didn’t really want to make a new topic so I thought I would post this here. After nearly 4 years of hard work, literal blood, sweat and tears, failure and self doubt, finally came the culmination of a black belt for my son a couple weeks ago. I’m soooo fucking proud of him. I can’t even describe how great it felt seeing his Instructor finally tie that black belt around him after years of taking him to karate 4 days a week and endless tournaments and wiping away all of the blood, tears and snot off him from sparring matches, wins, losses and failed tests.

  34. My kids love sticks. There are a ton of parents who freak out about this and don't let their kids play with sticks because someone is going to lose an eye. Look, I let my wild ass kids play with sticks. I've given up that fight. No one has even gotten poked. Just let kids play with sticks. Also I am pretty sure that letting my daughter sign up for Roblox is the greatest parenting mistake I've ever made. Minecraft is fine. Roblox has tons of inappropriate for age content, crappy parental controls, and everyone is trying to chat and friend request my 10-year old.

  36. I agree that Raquel hasn't had a meaningful feud to help her. Dakota Kai was the natural fit, but they're going with Mandy. I think Toni Storm was a call up to clear the slate in NXT. Ember Moon is lost in the mix right now. Ivy Nile showed how green she is in her first match. They need to change her finisher. She's way to short for a torture rack like finish.

  38. Agreed that Holland was a surprise, especially since they just repaired him up with Pete Dunne. I'd rather see Dunne moved up, but then again, maybe I like him better there. Shotzi and Tegan were a makeshift tag team anyway. Shotzi has a great chance to be a star on her own. Tegan I'm a little meh on. She's a good worker but what else is there? Regarding other NXT call ups, I fully expected Hit Row and Austin Theory; Aliyah was sort of called up earlier, so now it's official; Xia Li is a good pull; and awesome to see Mia Yim get her name back, and to be on the same show as Keith Lee.

  42. I hate to agree, but I do. Cut and bail with this Scout troop. If they want to stay with crazy pants that's on them. If they want to come see you outside of Scouts, great. But they are letting her do the bullying by not standing up because they don't want to deal with it. That's not what true friends do. If you want to stay with BSA, do it in your new 'hood.

  45. Wally runs a fun, dank meme and chat group which is probably the only good thing other than the Marketplace on Facebook. Even that wasn’t enough to keep me tho. I deleted like everyone except my immediate fam and my Nightly / Wally’s group friends, thinking I could just keep going on the Book that way, but I just couldn’t. The account is active but that is just for my kids and wife really to read all the stories I recited about them on my wall. But anyway, Wally’s group is basically Lando and this should make everyone laugh and feel old but my oldest son is an admin in that group. See wha
