2023.06.05 04:36 intellect_tank I think I'm too dumb or slow to be a software engineer, and I think that's ok.
I'm posting this in hopes that someone in a similar situation reads this and realizes they are not alone.
I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, I had no idea what programming was until starting the degree. I love the science and the amazing ideas within it. I got into the field because I read that it opened up a lot of opportunities for a great work culture.
The degree wasn't easy and got immensely difficult in the final year. I failed a couple classes and I didn't think I was going to make it to the end. Throughout the college journey I constantly questioned my aptitude and intellect. I would always score in the bottom 20% of the class for exams and only really passed because of syllabus loopholes with homework or memorized past exams. I put in many hours studying and still would struggle with actual implementation of code. Getting bad grades after trying so hard made me go get tested for ADHD after a friend mentioned he noticed some particular characteristics in me. It was confirmed by a doctor that I have ADHD. However, even after being medicated for ADHD (which did help in some ways) i'd fall into the same situation and have a difficult time implementing or reading code. Not in a dyslexic way, just in a slow comprehending way.
I really wanted to quit, but I was so far in and in debt that I convinced myself to push through and thought maybe working as a software engineer would be better than studying and at least I would make some money.
I got a software developer job and I have been in it for almost 3 years and I am still suffering everyday. I thought maybe I was just having a bad case of imposter syndrome, but now I've had feedback from managers that they have no confidence in my ability and have advised to step it up, to not put them in a difficult situation. Every coworker is quicker at seeing issues in the code when debugging, even new hires. I eventually find and fix issues, but I am way slower than everyone else. When I reach out to other team members for help I easily get confused and take so much time from their day explaining things to me that should be simple. I have taken certification exams and have spent additional money on online courses, some that I already took in colllege. I study after work at least twice a week for an hour and I really don't want to do more than that. I feel like I shouldn't be working this hard to be barely getting by.
I see posts all over the web telling people they can do anything they want, but after doing 4 years of Computer Science and ~3 years of professional software development with extra studying after work makes it feel I've hit some sort of intelligence limit.
I used to think anyone could learn anything, but now I am thinking that may be bad advice, at least to some degree. If someone was horrible at math and physics, but they loved space and wanted to become a physicist. But no matter how much time and effort they put in, could never understand Calculus and barely could get through simple algebra, and almost everyone around them was succeeding with nowhere near the effort. It seems to me to encourage someone in that situation to keep trying and give them tips which they have probably heard countless times is somewhat cruel.
My knowledge of software has increased, but I'm just too slow or simply not smart enough to do it professionally. My technical knowledge feelsI slightly above second year CS student. When I'm doing software, It sincerely feels like I hit a wall of how much I can hold in my head and I get overwhelmed.
I have decided to make a career change, I wish I could transfer my software engineer experience to a role that has nothing to do with coding, but I'm at the point of when I think about anything software related my insides hurt.
Has anyone else experienced something similar to this? And what did you do?

2023.06.05 04:35 AlexVioletteLuther I have accepted a job at one company before I heard back from another company and receiving an offer letter. Should I work at the first company while waiting on my paperwork to be processed by the second?
So I have been applying everywhere I could for about 5 months after losing my job at the start of the year. I had to pull from my savings to pay my bills and my anxiety started getting so out of hand, I became very depressed. I had to ask my parents for help to get by. A month or so ago I applied to a job at Company A. I had applied there multiple times months ago and did not hear back so when I applied again, I did not expect to anything. After I decided to try my luck again, I was immediately called in for an interview and offered the job a few days later. Its a low paying job, but I figured I could make a little money while I waited for something else to open up.
A day before the job interview at Company A I met someone through a friend who works at a larger company (Company B). After speaking to them about my previous job experience and degree, they said they would try to get me a job at Company B. A week goes by and I honestly did not expect anything to come from B (I didn't have much confidence given the size of the company). Well, I was very wrong. I received two offers in one day. I interviewed for both within two weeks and was offered a high paying position. I am waiting on my offer letter from Company B and was told once my letter is received, it would take between 1-3 months before I would start training. I am meeting soon with Company A to start my HR paperwork. My dad, who has experience with Company B said it may take a long time or no time at all so he told me to just work at Company A for now. The only problem is, I'll have to take days off to go do paperwork/ drug testing for Company B out of town. I hate to take days off so early on. Both are intense jobs with a lot of training.
Should I start working at A while waiting for B to process my paperwork if I have to wait 3 months? Even if I have to take days off?

2023.06.05 04:35 No-Farm873 He was denied disability and I’m sick over it
My husband will be 40 this year. In march of 22 he had a heart surgery that led to a stroke. It’s been over a year obviously, they suggest he’s plateaued and will likely not recover anymore. He’s functional enough to care for himself in most instances. He has aphasia now and has a very difficult time communicating. But he can bathe himself, he can drive (with no passengers), he can cook simple meals for himself. But he can do complex tasks. He can’t call and book an appointment for himself, he can’t refill his medication, he can’t fill out paperwork, he can’t fill out an application, he can’t control most of his big feelings, he can’t stop himself from swearing when he’s frustrated. The list goes on. Who would hire him? If you had an employee that I’d he got frustrated at someone else and he called them a stupid fucking moron and needed to go take a timeout for 10 minutes but then forgot that he was supposed to go back after 10 minutes and stayed on a break until you went to find him would you keep him as an employee?? Someone who can’t have a task that requires more than 3 steps? Who can’t read an instruction manual let alone an employee handbook? How is he not disabled? He has long term disability from when he was employed. But he’s been terminated from his job so we (me, him, and our 3 year old and 18 month old) have all lost our insurance. I can’t apply for Medicaid until I have an answer on if he’s disabled and now we have to go through what I can only assume with be a daunting appeals process. Thankfully his LTD has a program that helps with the appeals process. I’m just so angry about it. I don’t think I’m really looking for anything except a good vent. Thank you if you’ve read my woes and if you can relate I’m sorry. All the love to this group ❤️

2023.06.05 04:35 FloralSweaterVest Law clerk looking for advice on finding post-clerkship job.
I'm looking for help with a game plan for after my clerkship. Before clerking I was always working towards my next step and now I feel like I'm just waiting and unsure of my direction.
I am currently clerking for a federal district judge. I didn't go to great school but I otherwise check a lot of boxes as far as academic credentials go.
I have two more years of my clerkship. I'll have 4 years of post-school experience when I finish (one year state court clerking, three years federal).
I intend to move to a state where I have no connections in the legal field (moving for family reasons). That makes me super nervous because jobs are won through networking. It's also more of a mid-sized city, so less job options.
Some folks have told me to start emailing people at firms I may be interested in in the area I'm moving to. Two years out just feels early. Plus I'm not sure what to say. What do I even put in the subject line? What is my ask? If they're willing to talk to me, what questions do I ask? What questions will they ask me? How do I keep in touch over the next two years?
Part of my problem is also that I'm not 100% set on a particular field. I have found smaller general civil lit firms that look great. There is an AmLaw 100 firm that has some practice areas I'd be interested in. I'd love to go in house or even work for a federal agency. I feel like if I email person A and say I'm interested in area A and then I email person B and say I'm interested in area B, that will get around and I'll seem all over the place.
Maybe I am all over the place because I just want to be employed indefinitely in a city I intend to live in indefinitely. It took me hundreds of applications to get the job I have. I spent my last 2 years of law school busting ass applying everywhere and constantly getting rejected. I had a partner tell me once that they wouldn't hire me because of where I went to school. So I feel like I can't be picky, and I just don't have a set thing I want to do. I'm not sure how appealing that is to an employer.
Sorry if these questions are elementary. I was once very up to speed on these things but I just feel out of touch now.
Tldr: law clerk moving to a different state after clerking. Do I reach out to firms now? If so, what do I say? Does it matter that I'm not set on a practice area?

2023.06.05 04:29 SonOfPIunder The skill ceiling in AOE2 is ridiculous compared to chess
The skill ceiling in AOE2 is ridiculous compared to chess
My Dad taught me AOE2 when I was younger, and I'd play once every few months or so. I was decent at the game. I feel like most people know the basics of the game, and for people who played as much as I did, I tended to win. I was comfortably better than most people. I rarely 'stomped' people, but I won more than I lost. When I joined voobly in graduate school, my rating was about 600 on random map. Think about that. "better than most people" equates to 600 on random map. I have been consistently playing for a bit over a year now, and I just broke 1400 on Definitive Edition yesterday. I am a good player. I'm not a great player, but I am a good player. According to the percentile I am better than 97% of the players on AOE2 DE. This isn't being better than 97% of all people, this is being better than the 97% of people who were serious enough about the game to play ranked online (granted, that's not a high bar, but it's still a bar). I'm good. I stomp people now. If I played my 600 rated self I would decimated them (me?). I have a 700 team-elo legend friend who I'll play without advancing to the imperial age, and I'll still beat her more often than not. (yes you read that right - I have a friend who is a girl!)
I am not *HALF* as good as the top players. There are people in this world who are consistently breaking 2700. That is ludicrous. I am more likely to lose to a 200 low-elo legend in a fair game than I am to beat TheViper if you let me start in the Feudal Age. People like to make fun of Mr Yo and MBL for not winning big tournaments, but they are competitive at the highest possible levels. Hera's peak rating is 2844, and TheViper’s peak is 2813. And those are Definitive Edition ratings, which is way more competitive, not HD so it's not even a fair comparison. Daut memes around online and is still so good at this game that he literally does "starting the game with four minutes of idle time runs" to the **pro** level *for content.* In-freaking-sane. It blows my mind how good people are at this game. If I plug myself into an Elo odds calculator vs Hera The computer gives me 0.999999665 odds that Hera wins, and 0.000000602 odds of him disconnecting. If you put that into a calculator and add them together it comes out to a rounding error. Count the 9's on that bad boy, there are 6 of them. That is literally less than 1 in a million chance. /anarchychess
is twice as likely to end up making an original joke. Here's a fun website showing other things that have a 1 in a million chance of happening https://www.stat.berkeley.edu/\~aldous/Real-World/million.html
. I can name 7 famous people, go to wikipedia, hit "random article" and have a greater chance of immediately landing on one of those people than I do at having a chance of beating Hera.
A 600 elo difference equates to about 1 in 100 odds, which we will call "stomping territory." So if we start with my original 600 rating which is *already better than most casual players.* Then a 1200 stomps a 600, an 1800 stomps a 1200, T90Official stomps an 1800, and T90Official gets beaten by Hera93% of the time. Hera playing my 600 rated self is like my boss's boss's boss's boss coming in and telling me I'm doing a bad job. The CEO of Walmart circumventing the regional, district and general mangers to fire the greeter at the local store.
Blows my mind. Chess is so easy in comparison. If I had a solid month to study, I could beat Magnus Carlson.

2023.06.05 04:29 allyoops2000 How do I offer help even after I resign?
Hi all, I am about to resign from my job as I have a found a new role. The timing of my leaving however couldn't be worse for my current team (manager is on leave for a month, then another team member for 7 weeks, then another 2 members off for 3 weeks after that, revolving door of leave planned for the next 5 months). I would like to offer them my after hours time to contract back to them to do some of my current work to help out until someone else is hired. How do I offer this to them? In the resignation letter? Or just attached to the email I'll send with the letter attached? I don't want to sound condescending like I dont think they will cope without me but also it's a genuine offer of help because they won't cope well without me. What do I do?

2023.06.05 04:29 snoman18x If I'm asked to bring my key to work on my day off, do I get pay for doing so? (CA) Story below
I am a key holder at my job and have been recently hired. Today was my 1st shift to close without a supervisor.
The problem is that I was given they keys assigned to the person opening in the morning because there are not enough keys for all of the key holders.
The person the keys are assigned to was supposed to pick them up at closing today and didn't.
I'm not sure if I will be but if I'm asked to bring the keys to work in the morning so that he can open. Am I entitled to pay?
My understanding is that if I am entitled to 2 hours if I have to show up for work at a minimum in California regardless if I actually work the full 2 hours. Is that correct?

2023.06.05 04:28 Available_Option3912 How would I include this on my resume + Am I too late?
Hey there reddit!
I am trying to apply for a Business development representative (BDSDR) job in the USA (I am a citizen).
My questions are:
1) On my current resume, for some of the companies I previously applied to, I did not mention the company I was working for (Ie: I tried to apply to Google in October, but didn't mention that I worked for my current company for around 4 months). The reason why I did this was because, originally, I didn't think I was going to stay (I was hired as a BDR at this company as soon as I turned 18, was trained during the summer, before heading to college in D.C). I had to leave college because of my father's health condition and went back to work effective January of 2022.
A) What would I do here? Should I still apply to these companies? What would happen if I were to apply to one of these companies and they were to note that my current resume is different (not mentioning prior experience) to my previous resume?
B) Would I have a chance to explain to the company (via phone call or email) the reason i didn't mention my prior work experience after they, lets say, reject my application because they think I am lying (would that make a difference, post rejection)? How about if were to (or should) mention it to a recruiter during an interview, assuming they didn't notice the change (how would they react)?
2) I used to work on a large family YouTube channel centered in the Middle East. I had worked there for 2 years. In those 2 years, I had grown it from 1.6 million subs to 3.4 million subs and by 100 million views. I had decided to resign due to ethical issues and, with that, they are unwilling to provide verification of my work. Notably, I wasn't paid a salary and they are centered in Jordan.
A) How would I go about including this information on either my resume or in an interview? Should I? I am worried that I might include this info and then, when verification time comes around, I will be flagged for not being able to verify my experience!
B) I did apply to a few companies with this on my prior resumes. With that in mind, What would happen here? Will I ever be asked questions about why I didn't include this on my current resume, be seen as suspicious, or be required to have this experience verified?
3) I was speaking to a recruiter Thursday morning when she gave me an email that prompted me to include my resume so that she can submit it to a company. I wasn't able to submit it Thursday or throughout the weekend due to a family emergency. I still need to make edits (the information gathered from this post) and then plan to post it on Monday morning.
A) Do you think I still have a chance of being taken seriously or having the recruiter understand why I was late to submit my resume? What should I say or do?
4) Assuming I don't include my picture (or job title near my name), does this look like a good resume template for someone interested in a BDR tech job on the West coast? How about any BDR job (not tech) in the U.S?
Thank you all for your responses, I can't wait to read and respond back!

2023.06.05 04:26 Tangou-888 The Hoax Story of Remarkable Testimony of a Buddhist monk in Myanmar (Burma) (Part I)
The Hoax Story of Remarkable Testimony of a Buddhist monk in Myanmar (Burma) who came back to life a changed man! Introduction The story that follows is simply a translation of a taped testimony from a man with a life-changing story. It is not an interview or a biography, but simply the words from the man himself. Different people react in different ways when they hear this story. Some are inspired, some skeptical, a few will mock and ridicule, while some others have even been filled with rage and anger, convinced these words are the ravings of a mad man or an elaborate deception. Some Christians have opposed the story simply because the radical and miraculous events described herein do not fit their feeble image of an Almighty God. We were first made aware of this story from several Burmese church leaders who shared it with us. These leaders had looked into the story and had not found any suggestion of it being a hoax. It was with this in mind that we decided to step out and circulate the story. We do not do so for any monetary gain, or with a motivation of self-promotion. We just want to let the story speak for itself, and invite Christian believers to judge it according to Scripture. If God wants any part of it to be intended for His glory or to encourage His people, then we pray His Spirit will work in the hearts of the readers in those ways. Some people have told us they think the monk in this story never actually died, but that he just lapsed into unconsciousness, and the things he saw and heard were part of a fever-driven hallucination. Whatever you think, the simple fact remains that the events of this story so radically transformed this man that his life took on a complete 180-degree shift after the events described below. He has fearlessly and boldly told his story at great personal cost, including imprisonment. He has been scorned by his relatives, friends and colleagues, and faced death threats for his unwillingness to compromise his message. What motivated this man to be willing to risk everything? Whether we believe him or not, his story is surely worth listening to and considering. In the cynical West many people demand hard evidence of such things, evidence that would stand up in a court of law. Can we absolutely guarantee, beyond doubt, that all of these things happened? No, we cannot. But we feel it is worth repeating this man's story in his own words so that readers can judge for themselves. My Early Years Hello! My name is Athet Pyan Shinthaw Paulu. I am from the country of Myanmar. I would like to share with you my testimony of what happened to me, but first I would like to give some brief background information from my life growing up. I was born in 1958 in the town of Bogale, on the Irrawaddy Delta area of southern Myanmar [formerly Burma]. My parents, who were devout Buddhists like most people in Myanmar, named me Thitpin [which means 'tree' in English]. Our lives were very simple where I grew up. At the age of 13 I left school and started working on a fishing boat. We caught fish and sometimes also shrimp from the numerous rivers and streams in the Irrawaddy area. At the age of 16 I became the leader of the boat. At this time I lived in Upper Mainmahlagyon Island [Mainmahlagyon means 'Beautiful Woman Island' in English], just north of Bogale where I was born. This place is about 100 miles southwest of Yangon [Rangoon], our nation's capitol city. One day, when I was 17, we caught a large number of fish in our nets. Because of the many fish, a large crocodile was attracted to us. It followed our boat and tried to attack us. We were terrified so we frantically rowed our boats toward the riverbank as fast as we could. The crocodile followed us and smashed our boat with its tail. Although no one died in this incident, the attack greatly affected my life. I no longer wanted to fish. Our small boat sank because of the crocodile attack. We had to go home to our village that night on a passenger boat. Not long after, his employers transferred my father to Yangon City [formerly spelt Rangoon]. At the age of 18 I was sent to a Buddhist monastery to be a novice monk. Most parents in Myanmar try to send their son into a Buddhist monastery, at least for a time, as it is considered a great honor to have a son serve in this way. We have been observing this custom for many hundreds of years.
A Zealous Disciple of Buddha When I turned 19 years and 3 months old (in 1977), I became a normal monk. The senior monk at my monastery gave me a new Buddhist name, which is the custom in our country. I was now called U Nata Pannita Ashinthuriya. When we become a monk we no longer use the name given to us at birth by our parents. The name of the monastery I lived at is called Mandalay Kyaikasan Kyaing. The senior monk's name was called U Zadila Kyar Ni Kan Sayadaw [U Zadila is his title]. He was the most famous Buddhist monk in all of Myanmar at the time. Everyone knew who he was. He was widely honored by the people and respected as a great teacher. I say he "was" because in 1983 he suddenly died when he was involved in a fatal car accident. His death shocked everyone. At the time I had been a monk for six years. I tried hard to be the best monk I could and to follow all the precepts of Buddhism. At one stage I moved to a cemetery where I lived and meditated continually. Some monks who really want to know the truths of Buddha do things like I did. Some move deep into the forests where they live a life of self-denial and poverty. I sought to deny my selfish thoughts and desires, to escape from sickness and suffering and to break free from the cycle of this world. At the cemetery I was not afraid of ghosts. I tried to attain such inner peace and self-realization that even when a mosquito landed on my arm I would let it bite me instead of brushing it off! For years I strived to be the best monk I could and not to harm any living being. I studied the holy Buddhist teachings just like all my forefathers had done before me. My life proceeded as a monk until I got very, very sick. I was in Mandalay at the time and had to be taken to the hospital for treatment. The doctors did some tests on me and told me I had both Yellow Fever and malaria at the same time! After about one month in the hospital I was getting worse. The doctors told me there was no chance for me to recover and discharged me to make arrangements to die. This is a brief description of my past. I would now like to tell you some of the remarkable things that happened to me after this times...
A Vision that Changed My Life Forever After I was discharged from the hospital I went back to the monastery where other monks cared for me. I grew weaker and weaker and was lapsing into unconsciousness. I learned later that I actually died for three days. My body decayed and stunk of death, and my heart stopped beating. My body was prepared for cremation and was put through traditional Buddhist purification rites. Although I faded away in my body I remember my mind and spirit were fully alert. I was in a very, very powerful storm. A tremendous wind flattened the whole landscape until there were no trees or anything else standing, just a flat plain. I walked very fast along this plain for some time. There were no other people anywhere, I was all alone. After some time I crossed a river. On the other side of the river I saw a terrible, terrible lake of fire. In Buddhism we do not have a concept of a place like this. At first I was confused and didn't know it was hell until I saw Yama, the king of hell [Yama is the name ascribed to the King of Hell in numerous cultures throughout Asia]. His face looked like the face of a lion, his body was like a lion, but his legs were like a naga [serpent spirit]. He had a number of horns on his head. His face was very fierce, and I was extremely afraid. Trembling, I asked him his name. He replied, "I am the king of hell, the Destroyer." The terrible, terrible lake of fire The king of hell told me to look into the lake of fire. I looked and I saw the saffron colored robes that Buddhist monks wear in Myanmar. I looked closer and saw the shaven head of a man. When I looked at the man's face I saw it was U Zadila Kyar Ni Kan Sayadaw [the famous monk who had died in a car accident in 1983]. I asked the king of hell why my former leader was confined to this lake of torment. I said, "Why is he in this lake of fire? He was a very good teacher. He even had a teaching tape called 'Are You a Man or a Dog?' which had helped thousands of people understand that their worth as humans is far greater than the animals." The king of hell replied, "Yes, he was a good teacher but he did not believe in Jesus Christ. That's why he is in hell." I was told to look at another person who was in the fire. I saw a man with very long hair wrapped on the left hand side of his head. He was also wearing a robe. I asked the king of hell, "Who is this man?" He replied, "This is the one you worship: Gautama [Buddha]." I was very disturbed to see Gautama in hell. I protested, "Gautama had good ethnics and good moral character, why is he suffering in this lake of fire?" The king of hell answered me, "It doesn't matter how good he was. He is in this place because he did not believe in the Eternal God." I then saw another man who looked like he was wearing a soldier's uniform. He had a large wound on his chest. I asked, "Who is this man?" The king of hell said, "This is Aung San, the revolutionary leader of Myanmar." I was told, "Aung San is here because he persecuted and killed Christians, but mostly because he didn't believe in Jesus Christ." In Myanmar the people have a common saying, "Soldiers never die, they live on." I was told that the legions of hell have a saying "Soldiers never die, but they go to hell forever." I looked and saw another man in the lake of fire. He was a very tall man and he was dressed in military armor. He was also holding a sword and a shield. This man had a wound on his forehead. This man was taller than any person I have ever seen. He was six times the length between a man's elbow and the tips of his fingers when he stretches his arm out straight, plus one span of a man's fingers when he spreads out his hand. The king of hell said, "This man's name is Goliath. He is in hell because he blasphemed the Eternal God and His servant David." I was confused because I didn't know who either Goliath or David were. The king of hell said, "Goliath is recorded in the Christian Bible. You don't know him now, but when you become a Christian you will know who he is."
I was then taken to a place where I saw both rich and poor people preparing to eat their evening meals. I asked, "Who cooked the food for these people?" The king of hell replied, "The poor have to prepare their own food, but the rich people get others to cook for them." When the food had been prepared for the rich people they sat down to eat. As soon as they started a thick smoke came up. The rich people ate as fast as they could to ease their consciences. They were struggling to breath because of the smoke. They had to eat fast because they were fearful of losing their money. Their money is their god. Another king of hell then came to me. I also saw a being whose job is to stoke the fires beneath the lake of fire, to keep it hot. This being asked me, "Are you going into the lake of fire too?" I replied, "No! I am only here to observe!" The appearance of this creature stoking the fire was very terrifying. He had ten horns on his head and a spear in his hand that had seven sharp blades coming from the end. The creature told me, "You are right. You came here just to observe. I cannot find your name here." He said, "You must now go back the way you came." He pointed me toward the desolate plain that I had first walked along before I came to the lake of fire. The Road of Decision I walked a long time, until I was bleeding. I was hot and in great pain. Finally, after walking for about three hours I came to a wide road. I walked along this road for some time until I came to a fork. One road, going off to the left, was wide. A smaller road went off to the right hand side. There was a signpost at the fork saying that the road to the left was for those who do not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. The smaller road to the right was for believers in Jesus. I was interested to see where the larger road led so I started down it. There were two men walking about 300 yards ahead of me. I tried to catch up with them so I could walk with them but no matter how hard I tried I couldn't catch them up, so I turned around and went back to the fork in the road. I continued to watch these two men as they walked down the road away from me. When they reached the end of the road they were suddenly stabbed. These two men cried out in great pain! I also cried out when I saw what happened to them! I realized the bigger road ended in great danger for those who traveled down it. Looking into Heaven I started walking down the believers' road instead. After traveling for about one hour the surface of the road turned to pure gold. It was so pure that when I looked down I could see my own reflection perfectly. I then saw a man standing in front of me. He was wearing a white robe. I also heard beautiful singing. Oh, it was so beautiful and pure! It was much better and more meaningful than the worship we have in churches here on the earth. The man in the white robe asked me to walk with him. I asked him, "What is your name?" but he did not answer. After I asked his name six times the man answered, "I am the one who holds the key to heaven. Heaven is a very, very beautiful place. You cannot go there now but if you follow Jesus Christ you can go there after your life has finished on the earth." The man's name was Peter. Peter then asked me to sit down and he showed me a place to the north. Peter said, "Look to the north and see God create man." I saw the Eternal God from a distance. God spoke to an angel, "Let us make man." The angel pleaded with God and said, "Please don't make man. He will do wrong and will grieve you." [In Burmese literally: "He will make you lose face."]. But God created a man named anyway. God blew on the man and the man came to life. He gave him the name "Adam". [Note: Buddhists do not believe in the Creation of the world or of man, so this experience had a significant impact on the monk].
Sent Back with a New Name Then Peter said, "Now get up and go back to where you came from. Speak to the people who worship Buddha and who worship idols. Tell them they must go to hell if they don't change. Those who build temples and idols will also have to go to hell. Those who give offerings to the monks to earn merit for themselves with go to hell. All those who pray to the monks and call them 'Pra' [respectful title for monks] will go to hell. Those who chant and 'give life' to idols will go to hell. All those who don't believe in Jesus Christ will go to hell." Peter told me to go back to the earth and testify about the things I had seen. He also said, "You must speak in your new name. From now on you are to be called Athet Pyan Shinthaw Paulu ["Paul who Came Back to Life."]. I didn't want to go back. I wanted to go to heaven. Angels opened a book. First they looked for my childhood name (Thitpin) in the book, but they could not find it. They then looked for the name I had been given when he entered the Buddhist monk hood (U Nata Pannita Ashinthuriya) but it wasn't written in the book either. Then Peter said, "Your name is not written here, you must return and testify about Jesus to the Buddhist people." I walked back along the gold road. Again I heard beautiful singing, the kind of which I have never heard before or since. Peter walked with me until the time I returned to the earth. He showed me a ladder that reached down from the heaven to the sky. The ladder didn't reach to the earth, but stopped in mid-air. On the ladder I saw many angels, some going up to heaven and some going down the ladder. They were very busy. I asked Peter, "Who are they?" Peter answered, "They are messengers of God. They are reporting to heaven the names of all those who believe in Jesus Christ and the names of those who don't believe." Peter then told me it was time to go back. It is a Ghost! The next thing I was aware of was the sound of weeping. I heard my own mother cry out, "My son, why did you leave us now?" I also heard many other people weeping. I realized I was lying in a box. I started to move. My mother and father started shouting, "He is alive! He is alive!" Other people who were farther away did not believe my parents. I then placed my hands on the sides of the box and sat upright. Many people were struck with terror. They cried out, "It is a ghost!" and ran away as fast as their legs could carry them. Those who remained were speechless and trembling. I noticed I was sitting in smelly liquid and body fluids, enough to fill about three and a half cups. This was liquid that had come out of my stomach and my insides while my body was lying in the coffin. This is why people knew I had indeed been dead. Inside the coffin there was a type of plastic sheet fixed to the wood. This sheet is placed there to retain a corpse's liquids, because many dead bodies release much fluid like mine did. I learned later that I was just moments away from being cremated in the flames. In Myanmar people are placed in a coffin, the lid is then nailed shut, and the whole coffin is burned. When I came back to life my mother and father were being allowed to look at my body for the very last time. Moments later the lid of my coffin would have been nailed shut and I would have been cremated! I immediately started to explain the things I had seen and heard. People were astonished. I told them about the men I had seen in the lake of fire, and told them that only the Christians know the truth, that our forefathers and us have been deceived for thousands of years! I told them everything we believe is a lie. The people were astonished because they knew what kind of a monk I had been and how zealous I had been for the teachings of Buddha. In Myanmar when a person dies their name and age is written on the side of the coffin. When a monk dies, the monk's name, age and the number of years he has served as a monk are written on the side of the coffin. I had already been recorded as dead but as you can see, now I am alive! Epilogue Since 'Paul who came back to life' experienced the above story he has remained a faithful witness to the Lord Jesus Christ. Burmese pastors have told us that he had led hundreds of other monks to faith in Christ. His testimony is obviously very uncompromising. Because of that, his message has offended many people who cannot accept there is only one Way to Heaven, the Lord Jesus Christ. Despite great opposition, his experiences were so real to him that he has not wavered. After many years in the Buddhist monk hood, as a strict follower of Buddhist teachings, he immediately proclaimed the Gospel of Christ following his resurrection and exhorted other monks to forsake all false gods and follow Jesus Christ with all their hearts. Before the time of his sickness and death he had no exposure to Christianity at all. Everything he learned during those three days in the grave was new to his mind. In a bid to get his message out to as many people as possible, this modern-day Lazarus began distributing audio and video cassette tapes with his story on them. The police and Buddhist authorities in Myanmar have done their utmost to gather these tapes up and destroy them. The testimony you have just read has been translated form one of those cassette tapes. We are told it is now quite dangerous for citizens of Myanmar to be in possession of these tapes. His fearless testimony has landed him in prison at least once, where the authorities failed in their bid to silence him. Upon his release he continued to testify of the things he saw and heard. His current whereabouts are uncertain. One Burmese informant told us he is prison and may have been killed, while another informant was told he is now released from prison and is continuing his ministry.

(NDE = Near Death Experience). The Monk's story is identical. But the source is different. Details can be viewed at <> The message began with: "Buddhist Monk visits Hell" I believe this person died, body decay & rotten. He was then brought to those places by the LORD to show him some vision. <------- This is taken from a mission paper "Northside Missions Update" Northside Christian Centre 31-61 McLeans Road Bundoora Victoria 3083 Australia The same 'Monk's Story' followed. Then, exchange of interesting messages took place at the NDE.com Bulletin Board among NDE regulars, some of them are Christians, and finally, someone called 'Melvin', 'a Myanmar Buddhist', posted the following message and the discussion came to a close. The fact that the same story has re-surfaced in another form (cassette), perhaps in a another country is a bit disturbing! Best wishes to all our Triplegem members, MM Lwin ...................................................................

2023.06.05 04:24 marvineeyore I'm more than 100 miles away from pretty much all the pride events. Would it be a bad idea to try to set up one?
I didn't realize the area I lived was this conservative and this rural. My town has 3,800 people, and they're mostly Republicans, but I had no idea I was quite this alone here. It might explain why I haven't been able to get a job being out as trans. I might have to pretend I'm a woman and put up with being deadnamed to ever get hired. It's a blue state, just really the wrong part, apparently.
I'm afraid that if I tried to start any sort of LGBTQ meeting group/club, nobody would show up but protesters, but I feel like we need one here. I wouldn't know how to go about arranging that, if it's even allowed or there are rules, or if anybody would even be interested.

2023.06.05 04:23 Volodio The fifth ruler of the new Argead dynasty
| || |First ruler Second ruler Third ruler Fourth ruler submitted by Volodio to CrusaderKings [link] [comments]
Leontia (1006 – 1042) https://preview.redd.it/l0w57ptq044b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7e3037fd111f6dfc248b75791049a0eda3512b5c
After the death of their father, Leontia, Kyra and Aigida shared his domain. Leontia, as the oldest, she was 33, took the title of despotissa, which the others were not happy about but initially accepted when Leontia promised to work with her sisters, including Garyphallia who had not received any land. While the idea of them all taking the title of despotissa was present, like after the death of Alexandros the Judge of Men, their independence from the Eastern Roman Empire also meant they had no protection. As a result, they agreed to keep the realm united to be stronger together. This was especially motivated by the Pope in Rome who declared that the presence of so many people in Greece having renounced Jesus was a threat of Christianity. That declaration was universally seen as an announcement of incoming military actions.
In 1007, Leontia gave birth to a son named Alexandros. She had also a 2-year-old boy named Kallistos. In 1009, she had a daughter, Eudoxia. During those years, she focused on improving her domain in Attica and stabilizing the realm. Yet she did not have the diplomatic skills of her father and struggled to gain the allegiance of the nobility. Even her sisters distanced themselves from her.
In 1011, half of the Bulgarian nobles rebelled against the Argeads. Leontia sent Pankratios with 3 800 men to crush them. The conflict became very costly as supplies were hard to come by for the Greeks. In 1013, Roman nobles saw this as an opportunity and attacked the Argeads for Moesia. The despotissa hired mercenaries and called for the Myrmidons to face this new threat. The Myrmidons brought 3 000 soldiers to the ongoing Bulgarian campaign and defeated the rebels at the Battle of Zica in May, putting an end to the revolt. The vanquished were stripped of their lands and titles, given to Pankratios as a reward, and sent to a special prison to live the rest of their lives.
Meanwhile, Pankratios, with 4 700 men, defeated the 2 400 Romans at the Battle of Silistria in June. Pankratios continued the campaign and captured several forts of the noble families. In 1014, Basileus Anthimos intervened as he did not want to lose these lands. He forced the families to pay a ransom to the Argeads in exchange for the return of their cities. That year, Leontia made a deal with the nobility to give them more rights and autonomy in hope of keeping the stability of the realm. She also had another daughter, Simonis.
However, the agreement did not last as one of the nobles, duchess Lyudmila, revolted against the Argeads in 1015. The Myrmidons were once again called and their leader, Marko, led the campaign against the rebels, who had made sure they enjoyed a lot of popular support for the conflict. Marko successfully crushed the rebellion in a few weeks only, by boldly ambushing the rebels and taking all of their resources before they could organize. Lyudmila was arrested and stripped of all of her titles and lands while the other leaders were executed.
The peace lasted for some time, during which Leontia was once again able to invest into Attica, which by that point was by far the most prosperous region in the realm. Until 1018, when Leontia discovered a conspiracy where the Argeads from Cyprus were trying to peacefully add Thessalonika to their domain by switching the allegiance of the officials. The despotissa sent some men to deal with the situation, however they were murdered and then she sent an entire army to bring it into the fold before Cyprus could intervene. The officials were defeated, stripped of their ranks and Leontia began to manage Thessalonika more closely.
The next year, Leontia reorganized Rashka, which had previously belonged to Lyumlida. She created noble houses from the local Serbian population and gave them titles and lands in the region, in hope of counterbalancing the Bulgarian nobility which was causing her such trouble since the beginning of her reign. In 1020, Leontia began the construction of a grand temple in Athens in honor of the ancient Greek gods and the Argead dynasty.
In 1021, Prince Alexandros died during an accident. Leontia began to drink heavily to drown her sorrows. Yet, she also found more time and gold to work on her domains as there was peace and stability in the realm. She improved the law, the administration, the organization of the cities, the farming system, all while being fair and just. Her court was open to everyone, including commoners. Athens became so prosperous during this period as to be called “the small Constantinople”.
In 1025, Princess Eudoxia married a member of the Skleros family who were ruling in Epirus. The following year, Leontia sent 1 600 elite soldiers led by Maximos to invade Montenia, in the kingdom of Wallachia. The latter was weak and in the middle of a war. As a result, the conquest ended swiftly with a victory, at a low cost. This good news was shadowed by the death of Princess Eudoxia in childbirth. Leontia worked even more to deal with the grief, reproducing what she had done in Attica to the rest of her domains, especially the ones in the north near the Danube.
In 1029, the despotissa attacked the count of Duklja for his lands. However, he was a Catholic and because Leontia did not follow Christ, he was able to call on the Knight Templars, an order of warriors made to fight the enemies of the Catholics. The despotissa, in turn, called for the Myrmidons. In total, the Catholics had 10 700 men, while the Argeads were 11 400, under the command of Maximos. Maximos forced his enemies to split and defeated one part of their army at the Battle of Moraca in April. The Christians gathered their armies and met their enemies at Skadar in June, but they were defeated once more. The victory was complete a few months later when all the cities and forts were under Argead control.
In 1030, Princess Simonis was married to Miroslav II, a Bulgarian who had taken control of Rashka. Over the following years, the prosperity of the Argead realm increased even more under the rule of Leontia. Most of the gold was reinvested, but the despotissa also used it to increase slightly the size of the army. In 1033, Prince Kallistos married Aigida, of the Pastillas family.
In 1034, the despotissa attacked the count of Beroë who controlled the lands between the Argead-controlled Bulgaria in the north and the Eastern Roman Empire in the south. The lands had a symbolic value for they were part of the ancient kingdom of Macedon. Over 9 000 soldiers were involved in the invasion under the command of several nobles in order to make the conquest as swift as possible. It was successful as the area was completely under Argead control after a year of war. Leontia immediately got to work and helped rebuild and improve the newly conquered cities. While she was busy in Beroë, she lent 2 000 soldiers to Theognosia, a Greek woman trying to take a city from her brother, in exchange for her allegiance after the campaign.
In 1038, Leontia declared war on Basileus Anthimos. The Eastern Roman Empire, despite the loss of such a large territory with the Argead independence half a century before, had managed to hold together under the leadership of Anthimos, who was a skilled general. Leontia had had the goal to invade for several years and was waiting for an opportunity. But the Empire stayed stable and she was getting old, so she decided to attack nonetheless. Anthimos gathered 12 000 men. However, under Leontia the Argead realm had grown stronger and richer. Including the Myrmidons, she was able to rely on 15 000 soldiers for the war.
The two armies faced each other at the Battle of Smolyan in September. The Argeads, led by Viseslav, were victorious, though it was not a decisive victory. Viseslav went back in Argead territory for the winter, and then both sides started capturing the forts and cities of the other, the Argeads in Thrace and the Romans in Asia Minor. This went on until November 1040, when Anthimos led his army back to Thrace to defend his land. They fought at the Battle of Ustra. The Romans were defeated and Anthimos himself was captured during the battle. It was the decisive victory Leontia had been looking for. With the Basileus in her custody, she imposed harsh conditions on him. He was forced to give back the forts taken, while confirming the loss of the cities taken by the Argead and even giving more, including Constantinople itself.
The surrender of Constantinople was a shock to the Christian and Muslim world. For centuries it had been held by the Roman Empire without ever being captured, and for the first time it was abandoned to a foreign power. People from the time saw it as a sign of the coming end of the Eastern Roman Empire and the rise of a new power in its place.
After the war, Leontia focused on rebuilding and changing Constantinople. She planned for it to be her new capital. However, during the year 1041 she lost first her lover and then her daughter Simonis, dying in childbirth. It took a heavy toll on her and she took her own life in early 1042, at 68. Despite all of her successes, she faced a lot of loss and her mental health was definitely affected. It is believed her tendency to bury herself in work only made matters worse. She was a heavy drunkard, even for the time, and it is even surprising she lived as long as she did.
Despite her difficult early reign, Leontia managed to make the Argead realm rich and prosperous. Athens became the fourth most important city of Europe, behind Constantinople, Rome and Cordoba. She is also seen positively today for having been such a just ruler, which is not to be exaggerated by believing she was a friend of the peasants in her realm. She was still part of the elites. Her capture of Constantinople had a large impact and completely changed the balance of power between the Argeads and the Eastern Roman Empire. For all her achievements, she is seen as one of the most important women of the Middle Ages. Lastly, she is studied through her mental issues, particularly her struggles with losses and stress.

2023.06.05 04:22 Haydukeisyourdad How can home inspectors get away with sucking so bad?
Selling my home. I totally get the inspection part of the deal, but come on. This guy says that one zone of the boiler doesn't work and to call a pro. It works just fine, he didn't even try the thermostat. He says kitchen doesn't have a gfci, it does. Plain as day in the panel, which is totally cool in this area. Says there's an active leak in the roof. It's been raining here for three weeks, raining on inspection day. His meter shows 8%. Normal is 3-17. One of the bricks lining the inside of the woodstove has a crack. He says that can cause toxic gasses to escape. They are literally only there to be heat sinks. So now I'm tasked with the job of hiring all these pros to say that everything is ok. The brain damage of the whole thing is the rub here. Why even have this guy in if I'm gonna hire all these guys anyway? How is this even kinda ok? I shared my frustration with my realtor...she said that's just the way it works.

2023.06.05 04:21 ThrowRA_lov My (23f) boyfriend’s(23m) sister (29f) blew up on me. What do I do?
So. Today is my bf’s older sisters birthday party. She had a birthday week planned out. Where she has 3 events. Today, tomorrow morning, and in a few days. Her actual birthday is tomorrow. She decided to have it at a local hotel+casino that their family goes to often. We were just there last week having dinner so my boyfriends family could meet her new boyfriend.
I been feeling pretty low energy since I woke up as it’s the first day of my period. The plans were for her family to meet up there at 3:30pm and hang out in the big suite their mother booked. Stay and hangout and talk and eat. Until around 10pm when we go to the casino floor. I’m very introverted and shy but I always make sure to contribute to the conversation and not be rude and on my phone. I don’t always know what to say and don’t want to fill awkward silence with going on my phone. So I told my bf since I feel this way rn I’m not up for trying to make conversation for many hours and I’ll come meet them all there at around 6pm.
Once he gets there- I get a text and he says “Jeez. Drama” and as I sent him “what’s happening?”. I get blown up with texts from his sister. “Nice of you to come to my birthday. Don’t even try to apologize, I know you’re using my family. Get a job and get your shit out of my brothers apartment. You can cry to __ all you want. Get out.”
Now I did not answer. So she started blowing up both of my phones. (Main and work). FaceTimed me a total of 53 times. And regular phone called me 13 times. what I don’t understand is how someone can be nearly 30 years old and still act like that.
She’s upset because when she got to the suite to be surprised by her family who put in a lot of work to make her birthday party special- she immediately saw I wasn’t there and said “wow. Nice of her not to come “ to my boyfriend and then locked herself in the suite bedroom to blow me up and scream/cry. He said that she was already in a bad mood because 2 of her cousins couldn’t come.
My boyfriend has yet to apologize to me for her actions. And neither has she. I been with my boyfriend for about 6 months now. We are not very close- but his family really liked me I thought by what they’d tell me, and always invite me out. But I guess she didn’t and I imagine from hearing stories from my boyfriend that she is not going to apologize to me for her inappropriate and immature behavio comments. Which honestly makes me a little annoyed to realize..
What should I do? I need some advice. I love my boyfriend. But his sister is crazy. and the other family members are great I don’t really want to respond to those shitty texts and let her just sit with them and hopefully soon realize she’s being unhinged.
Edit: I literally have a job, too. She is upset that I do not contribute to my boyfriends rent. This is my boyfriends decision, not hers.

2023.06.05 04:21 svet_sedov SVET Markets Weekly Update (May 29 - June 2, 2023)
In Week 22, job openings increased, but the unemployment rate experienced a jump. AI follies, along with renewed expectations of the Fed not raising rates, helped drive tech stocks higher, and NASDAQ (o:13109, c:13240) managed to close the week with gains. Meanwhile, BTC (o:27919, c:27239) continued its downward drift amid a shrinking money supply.
Notable Macroeconomic Updates:
Unemployment Rate (May): 3.7 percent (fact), 3.5 (consensus), 3.4 (previous); JOLTs Job Openings (April): 10.103M (fact), 9.375M (consensus), 9.745M (previous); ISM Manufacturing PMI (May): 46.9 (fact), 47 (consensus), 47.1 (previous); Case-Shiller Home Price MoM (March): 1.5 percent (fact), 0.4 (consensus), 0.3 (previous); Dallas Fed Manufacturing Index (May): -29.1 (fact), -25 (consensus), -23.4 (previous).
Spain: The country’s consumer price inflation dropped; Italy: Producer Price Inflation for April decreased; Russia: In April, the country’s economic performance showed positive growth; Germany: Country’s consumer price inflation in May dropped; France: In May, consumer price inflation fell; India: Country’s economy expanded; South Korea: In May 2023, the consumer price index in the country saw an increase; Mexico: In April, the unemployment rate increased. On Tuesday, the Shiller Home Index jumped to a one-year high, the Dallas Fed Index sunk, NASDAQ (o:13109, c:13017) corrected, and BTC (o:27919, c:27861) ranged.
The Dallas Fed Business Activity Index for manufacturing decreased to -29.1 in May, the lowest since Q2 of 2020. The production index turned negative, while the employment situation improved, reflecting managers’ upbeat optimism. Meanwhile, the March Case-Shiller Home Price Index rose 1.5 percent MoM, the highest increase since May of 2022, with house prices increasing by 0.5%.
Other Markets Updates:
Spain: The country’s consumer price inflation dropped to 3.2 percent in May (previous: 4.1, consensus: 3.5) — the lowest level since July 2021. This decline was primarily driven by a decrease in fuel and food prices.
Italy: Producer Price Inflation for April decreased to -4.80 percent from -1.50 percent in March.
On Wednesday, NASDAQ (o: 12,968, c: 12,935) and BTC (o: 27,072, c: 27,010) continued to drift sideways on technicals, additionally suppressed by unexpectedly improved job openings.
BLS reported a surprising rise in job vacancies in April, reaching 10.1M, surpassing expectations of 9.375M. This rebound from the previous month’s low of 9.745M suggests a tight labor market, potentially leading to more interest rate hikes by the Fed. Job increased in a retail (209K) and transportation (154K). Regionally, job openings increased in the West (236K), Midwest (137K), and South (20K), but declined in the Northeast (-34K).
The Beige Book came out, indicating an uneven distribution of economic conditions. Some sectors, such as commerce, showed a contraction of activities, while others, like airlines, continued to expand with higher wage being requested by new candidates.
Details: Labor market conditions in some sectors are improving, with better success in hiring seasonal workers in agriculture and hospitality sectors. However, labor constraints and worker shortages are still present in other sectors, including healthcare and retail. Wage pressures remained elevated, with some industries continuing to pay above-average salary increases to attract and retain qualified workers.
Manufacturing output growth in Texas experienced a lull in April, with new orders continuing to fall. Airlines reported high ticket prices amid strong demand and constrained supply. Firms in infrastructure and other heavy construction reported generally stronger activity, while firms in industrial and commercial construction reported some softening.
Other Markets Updates:
Russia: In April, the country’s economic performance showed positive growth, increasing by 3.3% compared to the same period last year. This follows a revised contraction of 0.7% in the previous month. Notably, it represents the first monthly expansion in the economy after experiencing 12 consecutive months of decline, partly influenced by the comparison to a low base effect from the previous year.
Germany: Country’s consumer price inflation in May dropped to 6.1% YoY, down from 7.2% the previous month, and below the expected 6.5%. This marks the lowest rate since March 2022, primarily driven by slower increases in energy and food prices.
France: In May, consumer price inflation fell to 5.1% YoY — lowest level since April 2022 — down from 5.9% the previous month, and below the expected 5.5%.
India: Country’s economy expanded by 6.1% YoY in Q1 (expectations was 5%), and higher than 4.5% in Q4 2022. This growth was primarily driven by private consumption, services exports, and manufacturing, benefiting from reduced input costs.
On Thursday, NASDAQ (o:12944, c:13100) rose by 1.2 percent due to Representatives passing the ceiling bill and Fed members hinting at a pause. BTC (o:26947, c:26867) followed suit during the after-market.
At the same time, fundamentals continued to worsen. In May, the Manufacturing PMI dropped to 46.9 from April’s 47.1, below the predicted 47, marking the seventh consecutive month of decline in the manufacturing industry. New orders and inventories contracted, while production saw a rebound and employment increased at a faster rate. Additionally, there was a significant decrease in price pressures.
Philadelphia Fed President Patrick Harker suggested that the central bank might forgo a rate increase in the upcoming meeting. However, he emphasized that the choice to maintain current interest rates should not be interpreted as the conclusion of the tightening phase.
Other Markets Updates:
South Korea: In May 2023, the consumer price index in the country saw a 3.3% year-on-year increase, compared to a 3.7% rise in April, showing a continued easing for the fourth consecutive month. This marks the lowest level since October 2021. The Korean central bank halted its interest rate hikes at the April meeting after raising rates by a total of 3 percentage points.
On Friday, NASDAQ (o:13190, c:13240, +0.3) experienced an increase fueled by an ongoing micro-rally in tech stocks, supported by the BLS reporting rising unemployment and diminishing concerns over the Fed raising rates. BTC (o:27095, c:27239, +0.5) followed suit, although it remained constrained by a tight money supply and low demand from retail buyers.
In May 2023, the unemployment rate rose to 3.7 percent, reaching its highest level since October 2022 and exceeding market expectations of 3.5 percent. Despite this increase, the jobless rate remained historically low, indicating a tight labor market. The number of individuals who were unemployed increased by 440 thousand to reach 6.10 million, while employment levels saw a decline of 310 thousand to 160.72 million.
Other Markets Updates:
Mexico: In April, the unemployment rate saw a rise to 2.80 percent, up from 2.40 percent in March.
In Week 23, apart from the Services PMI for May published by ISM on Monday, not much macroeconomic data is released. Markets are expected to be volatile as traders adjust and readjust their positions before the June 14th FOMC rate decision. Additionally, technical indicators’ leading algorithms will react to the proximity of major index prices to important resistance levels.

2023.06.05 04:16 International_Big126 Batshit crazy SM…
I don’t need advice or anything, already did what I need to do, but I do need to rant to people who get it lol. Because what the actual fuck.
So my SM scheduled me five days back to back after COUNTLESS conversations about me having a disability and not being physically capable of working even three days in a row. I told SM I was absolutely not going to work five in a row. SM said, “why didn’t you disclose your disability upfront?” I said I definitely did, and we’ve had numerous conversations about it too. Then SM had the bold-faced audacity to say, “well if I had known I wouldn’t have hired you.” BABE. YOU CANNOT SAY THAT??? It is so insanely illegal to discriminate based on disability alone wtf looolll.
But also just the fact that SM tried to use that as a tool to gaslight me into working five days back to back is WILDDD.
We also have several HS and college kids that are CSAs and they’re scheduled EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND. never have a single weekend off in the 6 months I’ve been at this store. And so of course they call in on weekends. They’ve never all called in on the same day and it’s never that busy on days they do call out so really it’s not that big of a deal but SM freaks out every time they call out. She fired ALL of them today after ONE of them called out (I don’t even think she wrote them up ever) so now we only have 4 employees total to run the entire store.
I texted the HR number to the CSAs and told them to call immediately. Because there’s a process and you can’t just fire everyone for the action of one person. And I’ve also put in my notice and will be leaving asap.
The other 3 employees that haven’t been fired are also currently making alternative arrangements too.
SM also only ever posts our work schedule one week at a time and changes it literally every other day. Sometimes the day of and tries to force us to work the new schedule claiming, “you have to be flexible or you can’t work here.”
I’ve worked a lot of stores in a few different states and had a LOT of SM’s and I’ve never experienced this level of audacity and delulu.

2023.06.05 04:16 Capable-Condition385 Wibta if I called the cops on my wife’s boyfriend?
My (m43) and my wife (f44) have been separated for over a year. (We aren’t divorced yet because of insurance reasons.) Almost immediately, she started dating a man I’ll call Nick (m33). I have no problem with her dating, but this guy moved in quick and harasses our two children ages 11 and 13. Nick is an abusive alcoholic, and gets unpredictable when he’s had a lot to drink. He was baker acted once when he got so drunk he was cutting his own arm in front of the ex to prove some point he was trying to make. He treats her terribly and throws insults and verbal abuse but she will not leave him. Actually, she kicks him out about every few weeks but the next day he apologizes and starts all over again. My kids are left alone for the most part because they hide in their rooms to play with phones, Xbox, etc. When he does bother them, I had to tell them to inform him that “if he lays hands on my kids, I lay hands on him.” Luckily, he is literally half my size and afraid of me. I don’t want to go to jail for assaulting him, so this is my only recourse that I can see. I want to call the cops on him when he gets in his truck to drive somewhere, because by noon, he’s over the limit. He starts drinking in the morning and continues through the day at his job, then comes home to drink more. He drives everywhere in his truck no matter how much he’s had to drink. To get him out of our lives, I want to get him arrested. Would this make me the asshole? Edit: I’d have to stalk outside their house and wait for him to go somewhere before I could call, so this plan would be time intensive and maybe unrealistic.
