In the same vein, don't ask your musician friends to perform at your wedding for free.

"You work with computers right? Can you figure out why mine is so slow?"

Grrrr.....

Unless their "business" is an MLM, in which case, don't aid and abet them.

Yes and no. I had multiple people (pianist friend of the family and pastry chef close friend from high school) both do their thing for free when I asked for prices they turned me down flat and said to consider it a wedding gift.

If I'm really a friend of someone I will gladly provide my skill for their once in a life time (ideally) event.

Now if you just ask them for this type of thing all the time (birthdays, anniversary, parties) then you are a jerk.

Mothers in law?

I mean don't get me wrong I use this phrase all the time, but that is because my wife's mother is a lesbian and married. So I have "mothers in law."

Just point out the hypocrisy. It's all you can do really.

Nah, if they bring it up, then I'm going to talk about it. I'm not going to let them voice there one sided opinion without an opposition.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess you're not married. If you disagree with your in-laws about politics, you really shouldn't draw attention to that fact.

My dog loves cheese.

Carrots. Most dogs Fuckin love carrots, and they're good for 'em

I always open the door and let them do their pitch then I nervously look around and act like I am breaking down then I whisper... "how did you find me? I am in the Jehovahs Witness protection Program" Then slowly close the door.

My last dog liked carrots, current one wont touch a vegetable.

Whenever I hear or read about people bashing Millennials for being entitled job hoppers...

Whenever I hear or read about people bashing Millennials for being entitled job hoppers...

Non-millennial here, it's been the only viable way to get a raise for the past 20 years.

Yep. At most companies I've worked for, the only way to "get a promotion" or a raise was to go work somewhere else. Almost all of them only hire from outside the company, rather than promote from within. In cases where people were given more responsibility, they were never given more money... in my view, that's not a promotion.

Having an increase in responsibilities with no increase in pay is a pay-cut. Seems like the exact opposite of a promotion.

Who bashes millennials for job hopping? It's an accepted way to advance in any modern field of work. You're hard pressed to get a job with any kind of retirement assistance or useful benefits.

It's the new modern way of doing work. Jobs are not loyal to employees, so employees aren't loyal to their jobs. I don't know who would think that attitude is unreasonable.

I know people in SF working in high-tech and the view is that if you don't job hop every 6 months you're basically a failure because you aren't going anywhere. It's a really weird change from the days where you kept one job from highschool until retirement.

"Uhhh... pooping"

I love nothing more than a secret public bathroom. Best times if you need to go and you're out.

Police: What are you doing in there!?

Me: (Audible sound pbbthhh pthhh plop) ......

You're making me depressed. Because there was a mostly secret bathroom at work on a little used floor of my building. Almost a private bathroom with just one stall and a sink. The door to this bathroom had no lock. It was little used so it was clean.

I had to take a shit really bad last week and I walked up to that bathroom and discovered they put a lock on the door to that bathroom now. I had to use the plebian bathroom instead.

"Who does number two work for?"

Came home to find my awesome neighbor's work truck in my driveway.

Came home to find my awesome neighbor's work truck in my driveway.

Call a tow truck. Bet you never see it in your driveway again.

I called the cops and told them there was a vehicle that wasn't mine parked there. They came and gave him a warning.

Edit - I didn't want to tow his car to get back at him. I wanted to wake him up and give him a taste of reality. The cops showing up and telling him that he was wrong was what I wanted to do.

Edit 2 - My guests don't park in front of his place and never have. They park in a community shared parking are that's on two lots that everyone on the street owns a part of. One of them is right up against his property but no on parts on his property.

It isn't quite /sub/justiceporn material, but it's probably the most rational thing to do in this situation. Good on you for doing something about it but not overreacting.

All these people with ideas on how to wreck the truck; here's mine: 1. Hook up with a crazy ex-girlfriend. 2. Brag about your awesome new truck 3. Tell her your just not into her 4. Watch the fun

That's a red flag.

That flag is on fire. Holy shit.

How do the other people in the group not shut that down?

huh. guess my sister forgot to say she was going to a wedding this weekend. My condolences to the bride and groom.

She's asked him multiple times not to but he "can't resist touching a baby belly"

Seems like another reason to be reported again. Retaliation is also a major HR violation in most places

He was let go :)

My thoughts exactly. I'm hoping to hear he got fired by the end of the day.

I am just waiting for my wife to go to break to get an update. Her break is at 1pm est that's 1.5Hours away. I'll update this specific comment so everyone can read it since so many people want to know :)

Update: They let him go. He did apologize to my wife but she said it sounded like HR forced him. Everyone that he had been name calling her too said they reported his behavior as well so my wife is really happy at all the support she got.

Edit: Guys I had/have no plans on hurting this kid. He made a mistake he paid for his mistake and now hopefully he will learn from his mistake. My wife is planning on moving up and me involving myself would hurt her chances of doing so.

When I wake up with a boner

When I wake up with a boner

Nah mate, otherway round.

Plumbing makes it harder to pee anyway with a boner. Plus, if you pee after your done, the pee clears out the the plumbing from the junction down, meaning less chance of "aftershot" later on.

Definitely pee...then masturbate.

Am I the only one who is incredibly unsatisfied with the climax if I have to pee?

When you get older, you celebrate...

With the week I'm having, I'll take whatever good I can.

With the week I'm having, I'll take whatever good I can.

Every time time I have those dreams I'm always so sweaty I'm never sure if I've pissed myself.

I once dreamed that I was peeing because I needed to pee IRL, but I wasn't peeing IRL, so I dreamed that I was peeing for what felt like an hour . . . then I woke up pissed off that I needed to pee still . . .

Anytime I have to pee while sleeping I dream I have to pee but either can't find somewhere to pee or when I find somewhere to go I can't

I had one of those dreams years ago, wife was not happy.
