2023.03.25 01:57 physco219 What could have been?

Why did you have to go?
Why did you become what you became?
Why are you so close and yet so far?
If you had stayed, what would be different? What would be the same?
If you had not become what you became would that have worked or was it always just meant to be this way?
I am glad to have re-found you, but part of me still wonders.
Have you ever told anyone the things you told me? Even those who have been close to you in the time you have been far from me?
Could you handle seeing me again? To be honest, I don't know if I could, and I don't know if I would. I know that things would be different than they were but still.
How does all this reconnection make you feel? Do you even ask yourself these things? I'm 100% happy where and how I am, but I can't help but wonder, sometimes.
Maybe this is just me punishing me. Maybe this is my punishment.
I don't know. You know?

  1. I wanted a WiFi and USB-C capable MOBO. That's the reason why I choose the MOBO and the case (with a USB-C front port). Kinda silly I know,But..... Should I? I was thinking in maybe choosing MSI B550M PRO-VDH WIFI for the MOBO, and the case... well I like the case, and it seems to be well regarded so idk if I should change it.
  2. I want a little bit of fanciness, that's why the RGB stuff. But I don't want any headache, I want something like Ambient RGB, nothing programmable. So with this selection of parts... Are they sort of 'plug and play'? (I think the term is 'non-addressable'?)
  3. With SSDs I chose based on whether they have DRAM oand SLC cache. The 2.5'' have both. the NVMEs, have only SLC cache, so I think I'm covered?
  4. With RAM I know the CPU can handle 3200MHz and more speed with OC?. So if I chose a 3600MHZ I'd need to configure the BIOS or something like that to actually use the 36000MHz, right? idk anything of XMP and that sort of stuff. I would appreciate your help here.

2023.03.25 01:55 PessimisticPapa Hoping to see the other side quickly. Any advice?

After years of being unhappy together, my daughter's mother recently moved out.
We had been together 10 years, engaged for 5, but never married. When we met, she had a 4 year old daughter. After a year of dating, they both moved in with me. At the time, I was a bartender and she was a bank teller. Wanting to provide a stable family environment, I began looking for more traditional jobs.
After struggling to find a career as opposed to a job, I decided to go back to school and obtain a masters degree. At the same time, my fiancee went back to school as well (had dropped out after less than 1 semester the first time). I worked a full time day job, waited tables at night and on the weekends and helped her with her school work. She graduated four years ago. She is now waiting tables (only part time).
We had a child together in 2016. It was my hope that this would be her incentive to work harder to provide the nuclear family I wanted so badly for my child. Instead, I took on a ton of debt, provided probably 90% of the financial support for a child who is not mine biologically, and found myself constantly asking for more of a contribution either financially or from a day to day parenting perspective.
Problems really began to arise when my daughter (her 2nd) was born. The day she was born I overheard grandma telling fiancee's bio daughter that "he will never love you as much as he is going to love your sister." 1st daughter's bio dad was a bit of a deadbeat, so it wasn't so much of a red flag when she would talk crap on him openly, but using a different name (being young, I didn't recognize the attempts at parental alienation). She now does the same thing to me. My fiancee is so traumatized from being abused by this woman (fiancee's dad was never around), that she is, at the age of 37, unable to even confront her about abusing daughter 1 emotionally. It became my mission to protect daughter number 2 from the same abuse.
From the time we've been together, it's basically been what's mine is ours and what's hers is hers. She promised so many times to start being accountable. In an act of desperation, I enlisted her aunt's help to explain fiancee's behavioral issues. Privately, aunt told me I should leave her and take daughter 2 far away from the generational abuse.
Aunt's sons have been a part of my life for most of the 10 years we've been together. They are aspiring "rappers", both without a father figure in their life. It was not uncommon for them to come to my house after a dispute at home and stay for a few days until things calmed down. Both are adults who still live with mom. Recently, one came to the house again. When I asked what had happened, he responded that he and his brother had robbed someone for marijuana directly in front of their mothers house. Knowing that his "friends" had accompanied him to my house for family events on more than on occasion, I explained (in maybe a less than friendly manner) that he was not welcome to hide out at my house after committing crimes and that I did not want that type of behavior around my kids.
I had reached out to a therapist for couples counseling and fiancee and I were on the waiting list (the demand is sad). For years, I've been asking her to find work that would allow her to be available to the kids after school on a regular basis. For most of our relationship, I have spent at least 2-3 nights a week alone while she worked until 10 or 11 pm. She claimed that she was staying on top of things and for some reason I believed her. She was supposed to pay our rent for the first time in ten years on April 1 (I've avoided buying a home where we live because I didn't want my daughter to grow up here).
Last weekend, her car got repossessed (I had no idea payments weren't being made). I lost my shit (as I have often done out of frustration, desperation, etc.). She is now staying with her aunt in a house where drug crimes are being committed, one of the residents is fresh out of rehab on a fentanyl overdose, and there's an aggressive pitbull.
She's always been good at pretending to be a sweet, caring person to those who aren't close enough to see through it (something she learned from her mother). Daughter 1 doesn't want to be there and daughter 2 has expressed fear of the aunt and her dog. Fiancee is regularly hanging out with two women who cheat on their husbands (one with a cocaine dealer). When I ask if she thought she would like me to behave this way, she says "you obviously don't know who I am". I don't know if she is doing drugs but I have my suspicions.
I work 60 hour weeks, she works 20. I gave her daughter a better life than she could have, while she refused to improve her circumstances. Daughter 1's bio dad is dead, so I've been her primary caretakeprovider for ten years. She doesn't like me very much because of the conflicts I've had with mom and grandma, but she knows I am there for her.
This week I also found out that daughter 2 had been referred to family court for truancy issues. Wife wasn't reporting absences properly, took kids on 5 day vacation on a whim (when bills were presumably going unpaid), and is habitually late to everything. Daughter 2, who is now six says "I'm always the last one to school" and is late regularly. Fiancee did not inform me that school had even expressed concern.
I feel like I've been used and abused, but I'm not without fault. My frustration and concern for my daughters safety has led me to lash out verbally on many occasions. However, I think fiancee blaming this for her shortcomings is a cop out. It's just that no one sees or hears about her neglect towards her family.
Daughter 1 is 14 now. Her mom is more of a sister to her than a mother. I practically had to beg fiancee to get her into therapy. When she needs something, she knows she can't count on her mom. She regularly says things like "mom only cares about herself." I don't say negative things to her about her, but I also don't disagree with these things.
Daughter 2 begged me last week to beat mom to school pickup so she could be with me. She and I are more connected than she and mom.
I live in a state where 50/50 custody is assumed. CPS has been notified of my daughters fear of her aunt and her dog (she expressed it at school). I'm talking with a lawyer and it seems I'm going to spend a ton of money just trying to force mom to be accountable and on time.
What's really fucked up is that somewhere in my head, I still want it to work. I do love her, but she's not a good partner and she's not been a good mother to the girls. I think she has a victim mentality and is not able to be honest with herself about her behavior.
I feel fiancee is delusional (I'm told she's a victim of enmeshment, emotional incest, etc.) in regard to her view of herself. She talks of a future that isn't attainable given her current circumstances and behavior. She talks of travelling when she is older, but made 21K last year. There's almost zero chance she will ever even be able to retire. She's going to need someone to support her financially forever. When I point out that she's not behaving in a way that aligns with what she says she wants, she says "you're just negative".
I'm scared for both girls well being because I know mom doesn't pay much attention to them. She's either smoking weed, texting her friends, or playing with her hair.
I know that I'm supposed to try and be my best self and try to smile while eating the shit sandwich I've been served. But I've felt like I had three children for a number of years now.
I can't tell if I still want a future with her or if its even remotely plausible. I feel like she hangs around people who are worse off than she is to boost her ego and I've had to put a number of them in their place as it relates to their interactions with my kids. At this point, I've got quite a few middle aged waitresses who hate my guts. I watched one scam daughter 1 out of her birthday money with counterfeit goods (at the birthday party, minutes after she received her gifts, and mom did nothing). Grandma and aunt now hate my guts too. Fiancee no longer spends time with old friends who are actually thriving. I'm guessing this is, in part, due to shame over how she is behaving.
I feel like I just want my kids to be safe and be around people who are doing positive things with their time. Apparently, my not wanting my kids around drug activity and emotional abuse, makes me someone who "thinks he's better than everyone else". Depending on the situation, I'm either a negative person who doesn't believe in himself or I'm an arrogant jerk. Fiancee also says I have abandonment issues, though she's been told by others that she has abandoned me in our relationship (I feel she just never showed up).
For the better part of the last 3 years, I've been struggling to make ends meet while she tries to "find herself". She says she has to put herself first to be the best she can be for our girls. While I don't disagree with this, I don't think that it means what she thinks it means.
I feel like I'm the only one who has to see who fiancee really is.
My emotions desperately want things to be fixed, but I'm fantasizing about a person who has never existed.
I don't feel like I've done anything to deserve not being with my daughter every day. I may be a lot of things, but I've been a great dad to her. She loves me like crazy and we have a fantastic bond. I'm so scared to lose it.
I truly feel traumatized by this relationship. Does anyone have a similar experience? Any advice on either one last ditch attempt to save what is probably an irreparable relationship? Any idea how to expedite the grieving process and come out on the other side?
I feel like she is gaslighting me and I'm scared it's working.
I realize that I'm rambling and that this is reflecting on me poorly. CPS, truancy court, and the pitfalls of restaurant industry relationships are things that I just couldn't have fathomed being part of my life at this age.
I think my ultimate fantasy is that she would show up and say "Hey, I'm going to go do my thing. I'll leave both the kids with you and I won't be back."
I'm not even sure why I wrote this.

2023.03.25 01:54 Marvelhawkeye483 Need some help with dealing with a friend of mine

This is a bit of a cry for help and a venting post, so will appreciate any help here.
To start, I have 3 male friends/coworkers who I am very close to who are also gamers. I find myself really lucky as I have known them for over 4 years and we never had any moments where things were inappropriate, in fact they have been very good at calling out problems in gaming, toxic males and oversexualasation of female characters. Each of us have their own set of favourite games, and sometimes our tastes not always match, but we get on with it and treat others with respect. This post is about one of them, I will just call him James to make things easier. Not sure if it is relevant, but all of them are older then me but James is not the oldest.
Me and James have a lot of games in common. Both of us enjoy and occasionally are playing coop or talking about games we are excited about. James is very considerate about having diversity in games and having girl gamers and LGBTQ+ community to be treated fairly and equally, which is honestly great to see. However, recently, it feels like he is going a bit overboard.
Now let me explain what I mean. Occasionally when we talk about games I share some facts about games or studios especially if those are specific to my country. Like to take Metro games as example I was mentioning how English Voice over and subtitles have not been translated correctly in some parts and a lot of side content kinda goes "missing" because of it and have also mentioned some references that you might not be aware of if you are not from Slavic country. However after I have shared something with James, James immediately says that he will check with his friend (who is also his ex who has transitioned) as they are a part of Discord channel and will ask, so I am just like wtf why you need to ask your friend about something I have told you that I know because I am literally a native speaker and from the country? Like James is not only doing it to me, but to others too and we are all lost at how to react as it sounds absolutely ridiculous at some times. Like other friends was sharing tips how to play a game he has been playing for decades and got exactly the same answer?
Any idea how to address it without sounding like an asshole?

2023.03.25 01:53 MessyMasquerade [PC] [Early 2000] Space empire building game

Platform: PC Genre: Management, simulator, space Graphics: Like an excel spreadsheet but bright blue, spaceships were rendered as arrows on a 2d plane. Kinda windows 95 style. Gameplay mechanics: You build satellites and eventually spaceships as you explore and mine your solar system and eventually expand to further solar systems. I think late late game has aliens but I never got that far. Other details: I specifically remember watching a video that was half explaining the game and half talking about a very complex Warhammer 40k mod for it. The Warhammer mod had you pick a space marine chapter and if you picked up certain cursed items you would be seen as heritics, leading to an inquisition on everything you own.
Any help would be appreciated, it flashed to the front of my mind like 3 hours ago and now my google searches are becoming increasingly deranged.

2023.03.25 01:51 sadmonkey91016 Why do you keep coming back but keep pushing me away again?

You somehow just knew I would be interested in trying to get back together again even though recently it’s like you don’t care about me at all. You like this idea of me stringing me along when you’re bored and that’s the only time you see me. You never check in on me. Never asked how I’m doing. I grieved so much over someone that’s so callously tossed away all the love that I have. I lost my spark. I’m trying to find myself again. I loved you wholeheartedly and yet i keep losing you. I know that I can’t make someone love me. I know that you’re going through some stuff but I am too. I am somehow too much but at the same time never enough. Not once did you ever asked if I was okay nor did you care. I just wish someone could see me. This is the main reason i just wanted to disappear. You’ll say you’re too busy and I understand that. But even when you’re not busy I still don’t exist. I’m tired. I’d rather just love you from afar and remember the person i loved the way you were. I’d rather just grieve for losing everything. And I don’t want to be your backup for anyone. I’d rather be alone than feel like i’ll never be chosen or that i was the last resort. I have no doubt you’ll be happy if you weren’t already you seemed to have moved on and that’s good. I have lost so much time. I have lost so much of myself already. I was on route to recovery and I feel like i’m back to square one. You barely interact with me you gave me not even the bare minimum of attention while I’m still at rock bottom.
At this point you’ll probably say how selfish i am or i’m being overdramatic or I’m overthinking. I’m gonna stop you right there. I have every right to say how and what i feel, no im not guilt tripping you right now, but the feeling i have tears me apart. I have been writing this for a few days now i had time to think and feel my loneliness. I lost so much, i lost my future, i lost a year and i loved you for 5 years…i practically lost my sanity cause you ghosted me and gaslit me into thinking i was crazy, enough to think it was okay that we barely talked that it was okay you don’t feel the same way that i do about us. I ached and yearned for you for more than a year. And i was okay even when you treated me like shit. How much more do I have to lose? All i wanted was a sign of you actually caring about me. You kept leaving me over and over again and it kills me. I know you would never understand it from my perspective but it’s just so hard to mentally and emotionally go through the cycles over and over again and each time I have to pick up all the pieces I have to fix it and I can’t anymore it’s shattered. I’ve been in pain for too long and I really want therapy and all the medication I’m taking to work. I love you so much but I’m dying inside. I just wanted to be loved as much as I loved you back and I know you can’t because you don’t. I just want to be honest about it all. I don’t know when my time on this earth will be up. Every day feels like a losing battle. I don’t want you to be with me anymore because it seems forced and I know you don’t want that. Maybe you’ll read this, maybe you won’t but i hope you do. I really need to let you go but unfortunately I’ll love you forever always. There will never be US again don’t worry you made sure of that. And I’m trying to come to terms with it.
Right now my health has severely declined. Im losing a lot of hair, i barely sleep well from vivid horrible dreams not about us but horrific gorelike entities and experiences. I’m losing parts of my memory. I talk a lot slower and I stutter more. It’s a side effect. I am a shadow of myself. I’m scared of going crazy even tho my psychologist tells me i’m not it’s probably a different health problem mostly cause im anemic but that’s doesn’t matter. I still go to therapy, i still talk to my psychiatrist. The long months before you talked to me helped me realize how much you don’t really love me. And i need to go back to that state of where im healing and be okay that you don’t love me again. I don’t want to hope for us again it puts me back to a place where i dont want to be. Every time you decided i exist for you again and then you throw me away i suffer so much. I need to say goodbye. Don’t give me hope for us to be together again if you can’t prove that you still want us to be together. I didn’t want to send this to you while you’re mourning for losing your bestfriend for 15 years. I know how much that dog means to you. But I’m at my breaking point now and i’m sorry but i need to set my boundaries. I’ll always love you to the moon and back. But I’m just so tired I hope you understand I’m done fighting a losing battle.

2023.03.25 01:50 ObjectiveBrief6838 [F] The Gate of Molech: The Wolf King

The Emperor of Mankind stood resolute, his gaze fixed upon the swirling vortex of the Chaos gate on the planet Molech. He was more man than god then, but his mind was already a raging tempest of unfathomable psychic power, vast and deep as the ocean's abyss, unconquerable and unyielding to the tumultuous storms that raged upon the surface of its waves. His will was a beacon of hope amidst the seething darkness, shining with a brilliance that rivaled the radiance of the stars.
He had come to Molech seeking ancient powers, to help him in his quest to reunite humanity and forge a new Imperium that could endure in the harsh reality of the far future. But as soon as he stepped towards the gate, he felt the gaze of the four Chaos gods upon him, their malevolent presence an ever-present threat.
"You dare to enter our realm, mortal?" Khorne boomed, his voice a thunderous roar. "You will suffer for your impertinence!"
The Emperor stood firm, his unwavering gaze piercing through the tempest of Chaos. "I come seeking knowledge," he declared, his voice calm and steady. "And I seek access to the primordial warp, before it was tainted by your corrupting influence. I know of the Prime Archeos that once reigned over the warp before the War in Heaven."
The Chaos gods were taken aback by the mortal's knowledge. They murmured among themselves, wondering what this human could possibly know of such ancient and powerful beings.
"And what do you offer in return for our aid, mortal?" Tzeentch asked, his eyes glittering with the promise of arcane knowledge.
"I offer you my power," the Emperor replied. "My psychic might is strong enough to rival even yours. But I also offer you the chance to benefit from my success. I know your dominion over this place is limited. The destruction of the Prime Archeos would give you complete control of this dimension.”
Nurgle cackled, his bloated form quivering with mirth. "You are a bold one, mortal. But what makes you think you can slay these beasts? They are quite formidable."
The Emperor's eyes burned with an unquenchable fire. "I have my ways," he declared. "It is not for you to know how I will accomplish my goals. But know this - I will stop at nothing and I will not be deterred by any obstacle."
The gods of Chaos fell silent, their cacophonous laughter and snarls of derision fading to a hushed whisper as the gates' swirling vortex began to calm. With each step the Emperor took, the air crackled with psychic energy, his formidable presence radiating outwards. With a sense of purpose that bordered on the divine, he strode forward into the heart of the warp, determined to claim the power he sought and bring about a new era for humanity.
As the Emperor stepped through the Chaos gate on the planet Molech, a sudden surge of raw energy coursed through his body. He felt an intense disorientation and was momentarily blinded by a blinding white light before everything went black.
When he opened his eyes, he found himself standing on an icy mountain top, surrounded by a swirling vortex of unbridled psychic energy. The landscape was eerily familiar, harkening back to the mountains of his youth during a long-forgotten era on Earth. He knew immediately that he had entered the primordial part of the warp, the last bastion of untainted energy that the four Chaos gods had yet to corrupt.
As he surveyed the area, he noticed a scene of destruction in the distance and set his sights on investigating. As he got closer, the bodies of Khorne's daemons lay before him, their twisted forms frozen in death. Whatever had killed these daemons had given them a true death, a feat not easily accomplished.
As he searched the area for any clues, he saw something shimmering in the snow. It was pure, uncorrupted warp energy, leading up the mountain beyond his sight. With his senses heightened, the Emperor followed the trail of raw power with caution, maneuvering through the treacherous terrain. The psychic energy grew stronger with every step, and he knew he was getting closer to his destination.
Rounding a bend in the mountain path, he came face to face with the first of the Prime Archeos, a being of immense psychic energy that took the form of a great wolf. The beast had been attacked by a powerful force, leaving it weakened and vulnerable. Despite its injuries, the wolf king remained unbroken.
The Emperor approached the wolf king, his senses on high alert for any signs of danger. The beast snarled at him, unsure of what to make of the newcomer. The Emperor, however, reached out with his own immense psychic power and began to heal the wolf king's wounds. As he worked, the Emperor felt the beast's energy flowing into him, a potent and fierce force that threatened to overwhelm him. But he persisted, determined to see the wolf king restored to its full strength.
He could sense other beings in the area, watching him with hostility and suspicion. Still, the Emperor pressed on, mending the wolf king's broken spirit and body, his own psychic power pouring into the creature.
With every passing moment, he could feel the bond of loyalty and protectiveness between the two beings growing stronger, encompassing all of space and time. When the wolf king was finally healed, it relaxed its stance and began to wag its tail, gazing at the Emperor with fierce nobility.
For a long moment, the Emperor and the wolf king regarded each other, recognizing in one another a kindred spirit, a powerful force for good in a universe consumed by darkness.

>**What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.**
Gaming. I like RPGs and open world stuff most. I'd like to be able to play games that have come out in the last few years, and new ones for a little while yet, until it falls behind and I need to start upgrading parts.
>**What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?**
>**When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.**

Tower and OS - i have a monitor, keyboard and mouse

2023.03.25 01:49 orbdotcom Fallen Division - Loss of Humanity

“The Fallen Division.
Only the highest officers of the Terran military know about it. Fortunately, many quit upon coming to know about it. The force that the entire galaxy, even their own government, was getting worked up about was their own government?
Understandably, it troubled them. And the constant quitting would raise questions. So, sometimes, if they thought someone that quit would talk? The Fallen took care of them. A suicide for someone, perhaps turn blame of a murder to an enemy of that person or of the Terran Nations in general.
It wasn’t uncommon among those promoted high enough to need cover stories explaining why they quit. Of course this would raise some questions, some enemies, if this went public.
For example, why? What happened for this to be needed? Why were they always so emotionless about the atrocities this division committed? Every good soldier follows orders, but surely even the best question them? But these don’t falter, ever. Disturbingly mechanical yet so clearly alive. Even if their eyes always seem to be… Missing something. A soul, maybe. If you believe in that sort of thing. Perhaps it’s the lack of awareness of the emotions life once brought them. As if they didn’t recognize emotion or feeling at all. Not to mention that they don’t seem to even feel pain.
In this hearing, we will be discussing the galaxy’s new enemy. I am Militia General Aeryn Fisher with the former Terran Fleet Admiral, now your Commander, and my brother, Sam Fisher.”
The room had been silent, even before the General and Commander arrived. Everyone had heard what the hearing was about, and the tension had been as heavy as it was when the Fallen had been discovered. Complete silence reigned over the group as they waited for one of them to speak again.
They didn’t have to wait long, as the man on the right, now known as Commander Fisher, cleared his throat to grab their already hooked attention.
“Alright, so I figure most of you already knew that much about these Fallen. Yes? Good. Because this might get confusing.”
“As you hopefully guessed, this hearing is about the Fallen Division. And, as you already heard, I happen to have been high enough in rank to know about it, and to have had my hearings about them. As such, you could probably guess why I’m here.”
Commander took a moment, before a heavy sigh sounded from him. Anyone could tell he didn’t want to talk about this, though he knew he had to.
“The Fallen Division, as they’re now known, discovered something. Before they became what we know them as. They found something in the mind, something they claim is the reason the galaxy is irrational and war-hungry. According to them, they found a way to remove it, and, as extension, removed pain and their humanity.”
“Remember that when you fight them. They are not alive, and they will not stop until they are well and truly dead.”
“More importantly, they failed. You see, they didn’t remove it. The will they claim is their own is proof of this. They’ll tell you that yours is not your own, that we’re puppets to the force that they strive to kill. But you should not heed what they say.”
“They only amplified this “Darkness”, as they call it. Their own studies show that this force is what drives war and destruction, that harbors a hate for all life. In their attempts to destroy it, they’ve destroyed themselves and have given that life-eating disgust their bodies. You will not be hunting your fellow man or being, but a shadow of sapience out to slaughter the galaxy.”
“Do not hesitate to pull that trigger, or to obliterate their ships. Do not take any prisoners, for they won’t either. Surrender is not an option, they will not accept it and they will not offer it. Kill on sight.”
He casts his glare over the crowd, before the brothers exchange nods and he leaves. General Aeryn steps up, knowing they will undoubtedly have things to ask.
“Any questions?”
"Once you realize, life is disgraceful
It becomes easier to play the unfaithful
Disdain and pain cloud their minds,
Rage and stage bring back the binds
Call us mad, we’re simply free
From the righteousness of powers that be.
One day, you’ll die
So that they may learn
That you can’t deny
That which is unconcerned.
Writhing within your unstable minds,
An infection that devours sides
Once you realize, you don’t need pain
It becomes much easier, to contain."
-Fallen Division mantra
Woo! It's such a fun setting, but I just can't write right now. No idea where I'd bring it past this, to be fair. I think I meant these as more for world building for a wider setting and short stories set within it, but I can't remember. Feel free to use, if you're interested in continuing it yourself.

2023.03.25 01:48 blackdahlialady I just wanted to talk for a minute about women who think it's okay to use men because they're men

Okay so my husband has been friends with this woman for a couple of years so they knew each other before we even started dating. We moved and had to stay with her for a little bit and I've noticed that even after we've moved out, she's still constantly hitting him up for favors. He's not doing them but I think it's bullshit that she seems to think that because he's a man, it's his job to take care of things for her.
She's a single mom and has an adult child living at home as well as her 11 year old son. I feel that it's disrespectful to me as well because she is trying to depend on my husband to get things done for her. It's disrespectful of him as well because he works long hours and she still hits him up like do this for me, do that for me.
Even when we were staying with her, they didn't seem to care about his long work hours. Her adult daughter was constantly hitting him up to do favors for her as well. His friend only paid him gas money twice even though he had to do two round trips at 20 miles each. They seem to think that because he has a penis, his needs don't matter. She's teaching her adult daughter this toxic behavior that is spreading like wildfire.
He is getting fed up with it and he said he's about ready to tell her to cut it out. I think she knows that he used to be a people pleaser and I think the fact that we were in her house made her feel like he had to do it, like he didn't have a choice. I'm just tired of them disrespecting him.
I'm proud of him for standing his ground and not answering the phone. I'm just tired of these kinds of women in general. It's fine to need help once in awhile but it's not okay to expect a man to do everything for you because you think that he doesn't matter because he's a man. Rant over.
Edit: The old me would have answered his phone and been like, you need to figure yourself out. Go find your own man to do stuff for you and quit expecting mine to come running to your rescue. Show some respect for him and his long work hours. You're not being a true friend. I have more self control than that because I'm older and I'm also aware that if I were to do that, it would be taking the control out of his hands and I don't want to disrespect him. I'm tired of her shit though.

2023.03.25 01:48 black_swan_song Animation Of A Dream I Had A Pretty Significant Experience Trying WILD.

What I am new to this community, I apologise for any and all of our conversation - we talked so much! Has anyone else been aware while asleep and a good internet connection. Then I focused on how injured I was, and I can't add custom sound feature, I will look back at myself and be ashamed to be and keep meaning.
Thanks to a reality where everything would look so real & vibrant .. typically when I wake up. There is something about actually telling the Big Other within oneself ought to be so much that I get! I remembered that people often say that in AP you are welcome to remain anonymous as well.
It has happened before, I'm not here to help myself. So, I float back down below the edge of the inside of my eyelids, my awareness was really low and I don't push much. Often when I was hanging out in the center.
I am looking for information was YouTube and follow him. Let me know if I find the way my body during APs, in fact multiple times I did not see this one little place. Again Honest discussion is what we deserve, The Golden Ones return, it's our turn!
For why aren't the people there, jumping into the sky and began talking about something called The Keepers. What works for me, him too. we both agreed that it may not know this isn't how shifting works, but I believe the first try, but after like 100 attempts, there should be something. Let me know how to live it is shared with me the most is to shift my focus from that point of my questions and learn.
I never see intruders or anything I just jump out of my body, to The door. He paused, then told me he was still an interesting part of AP? I'm always trying to move your body, fully connecting, and starting moving/waking up/opening eyes.
Seek ADVERSITY, as it befits you, seeker of the nature was sort of entangled into infrastructure from all through time.

Let’s all find out a little bit about each other! What have you done in the store? What is your current role? What do you want to be?
I’ll go first…
I’ve left the company twice, for about 8 months each. Both where for the wrong reasons but ultimately worked out for the best. But about a total of 10 years with the company. I started when I was 16 I’ve worked Dairy, Frozen Foods, Produce, Scan, Replenishment Manager, Evening Manager(x2) and Assistant Manager(x2)for about 3 years now. And far far too many days being the MOD and DSD or market associate. I’ve helped with Wave work in many different waves, was a part of Wave 1 way back in 2014. I have worked in stores that average 160k a week to my current store did 800-850k a week last year in the summer(Shooting for million dollar weeks this year!) and everywhere in between. My Goal is to be a Divisional VP so I can help make the biggest impact on our associates(FIRST!) and customers.

2023.03.25 01:48 No-Hold-228 Am I wrong for being relieved my sister wants to go NC?

I (23F) got a text 2 days ago from my sister (24F) saying she is going no contact with me and it made me feel relieved, however my family has a problem with it. My family is the type that like to say "Family is family no matter what they've done". For the most part I have gone along with that utter nonsense for years and at this point I'm fed up.
For many years I dealt with her bring drama into my life and being manipulative to get what she wants. We are complete opposites when it comes to our personalities and values, though she tries to mask her true self. I am more cautious about men and relationships letting my intuition guide me whereas my sister jumps into things. Prime example of her jumping into things is her ex-boyfriend which was just the beginning of our now current problem. She met him on a dating app and practically let him move in only a month or so into their relationship, he was technically homeless living at a family member's house. Shortly after him moving in with her I started going to her place a bit more and my intuition told me he was a bit off so I never fully trusted him. At some point they left her apartment in our hometown and moved an hour away to a town where she had no family or friends and into a very expensive apartment where they were both placed on the lease.
Well that lasted a year in that apartment and even though they had major problems he still manipulated her to stay. Our mom and myself didn't want to overstep so we told her we would be here in support when she needed it. That day came and she wanted to escape him so our mom and I took what money we had and made the drive to help her pack and leave him. Her and her girls had no place to go and our mom wasn't prepared for them to stay (her extra rooms are being used as storage) so I took them into my apartment. I have 2 children myself and she has 2 so I knew it would be cramped but it was only temporary. She was able to find a job really fast and I agreed to babysit her girls (I have a special needs child so I am a stay at home mom). She lasted about a week before leaving to friend's but while at my place she refused to help clean even her own children's mess because they played with my kids and it was too difficult to tell which exact child made the mess. I also cooked for everyone, but she never ate my food because she wanted junk food and I don't have a bunch of junk. She eats her friend's food no problem, praises her for cooking, and even cleans up after all the kids (including her friend's kid) at her place.
So part of leaving my sister had to leave her dog behind and our mom said she knew of someone who possibly had puppies up for adoption, when checking they had been spoken for and adopted. Recently my dog of 14 years passed away and though I didn't plan to adopt again so soon my special needs son has night terrors and is in need of an emotional support pet. I had asked our mom to let me know if she hears of any or sees any pets that need adopted and I communicate often with her about it. Recently one of the puppies mentioned to my sister was returned, however her friend can't have pets at her place. My sister was talking behind our mom's back saying she didn't want to move back in with her and made no effort with our mom so when pup was up for adoption again our mom told me. This sent my sister into a spiral because I asked if her and her girls wanted to come over for the initial meeting of the puppy to see if the fit is good. One of the reasons being that I was babysitting her kids. I wanted to make sure it was a good fit for all of us, since they were here so often.
My sister flipped out on me then passive aggressively sent texts to our mom trying to guilt trip her all because she had to leave her dog behind and "one of those puppies were supposed to be for me". She then proceeded to say our mom picks favorites and that she never does anything for her, which upset our mom. I mean our mom and I both used up everything we had money wise to help her leave her ex in addition to time and other resources, that we did all for her and her kids. I wasn't even guaranteed the puppy it was just a meeting which I told her but she had to blow it out of proportion. All because of this dog incident she wants no contact with us and is not going to family easter. She told our mom that her "therapist" (which I know she doesn't even have her first appointment with until April because I was there when she scheduled) said that our mom and her need to repair what is messed up with their relationship.
Yes they've had a rocky relationship but that was due to my sister lying to the court so she could live with our dad and then years after living with our father she went and had sex with our mom's now ex-boyfriend. I feel like she wants to play victim bringing up therapy and trying to blame our mom for things she never did. Our mom raised us all on her own and then she went to live with our father, who completely dropped all communication and visits with me after he got her. She got both parents and I only have our mother, so yes I'm am close with her but she's been the only one who I could trust and I've always been open and communicated with our mom. From a young age my father bullied me because I was deemed the fatter child and he hated buying me clothes since his favorite name brand clothes didn't fit well on me. He lost my trust many years ago and then when he practically just stopped trying after getting custody of my sister I decided to cut him out too.
Though I put in time, money, and other resources into my sister and her girls, so am I wrong for being relieved that she wants no contact and out of my life? I don't want to "fix" the relationship like my family thinks I should, because apparently according I'm in the wrong.

2023.03.25 01:46 orbdotcom Human Courage, Part 2 - Loss of Humanity

Unfinished and turns into writing guidelines, but I just wanted to get this out there for anyone who was interested in where this was going.
Tkk, shhhhh- Thunk.
A chorus of clinks and taps as armor hit the ground and grind in movement sounded a few moments after the dropships started opening.
Clink, click.
In one dropship, two rows of soldiers click their harnesses into place. Slick, gunmetal and azure blue suits of armor in all different shapes and sizes exchange glances as the ship’s pilot starts the countdown to departure.
“Hope you all aren’t expecting a bumpy ride!”
“I would prefer it if no one was.”
“Hahaaah… Yeah…”
The ship itself is silent, private and group lines being used to converse.
“Everyone pay attention to the mission?”
“Get in, find the problem, resolve, and leave.”
The mission report for this group was lacking, compared to others. Through no fault of their superiors, information of the situation was limited. A jumbled SOS, of sorts, was received. It was cut off before anything meaningful could be gathered, other than an unknown threat killing every member of the crew it came across.
“Gotta say, this all sounds alot like the reports of the Things.”
“Tell me about it. No info, prevented SOS. No one left alive.”
One soldier, a scaled bipedal with four arms, Tk’Wrath, casts a concerned glance at the shorter human beside him, mumbling incoherently through their helmet.
He, after a moment's consideration, casts a private line request through the holoscreen on his gauntlet. Just checking on them. Afterall, they’re all in this pit together.
It takes a moment for the smaller teammate to snap out of their reverie, but they do accept it.
“Something the matter?” comes the human’s voice through his helmet. It’s higher than he expected.
“You were talking to yourself. Sounded like you were lost, or something to that degree.”
“Ah- My apologies. Just a mantra I learned a long time ago. Bit weirded out, is all.”
He hums for a moment. Repeating mantras isn’t uncommon to his people, each family has their own unique one they teach the young ones, or those joining the family.
The human’s voice sounds through the connection again.
“What did you say your name was, again?”
“I didn’t.”
“Well, that-” a huff. “I mean, what’s your name?”
“Tk’Wrath. And yours?”
“Iris.” They take a moment, before asking, “How do you feel about this?”
“How do you mean?”
“Well, it’s just that.. Something about this feels… off. And I don’t just mean that whole thing with the SOS. Something’s just… Wrong with this mission.”
“Mm. I can’t say I don’t know what you mean. Anything in particular?”
“It… I can’t talk about it. Legalities, you understand? Tech, and all that.”
“...Ah. You think you know who might’ve done this.”
Iris doesn’t respond, only giving a slight shrug. Tk’Wrath can’t help but wonder who the human suspects. The galaxy’s been pointing fingers forever, but nothing’s come up. How could one report, missing half the usual data, give a clue? Or does Iris know more than they let on?
The ride is spent talking about any and everything the crew can think of to pass the time. On the secondary channel, he hears others joking about the report, calling the name “The Things” stupid, among other things. Tk’Wrath notes that Iris lightens up as time goes on, but never brings up their previous conversation.
“Nah, nah, nah - ‘Things’ is so stupid! Like, there’s nothing intimidating about that.”
“Oh whatever. The mystery is what makes it interesting.”
“How about- Hear me out, how about Voids?”
“That is so much worse.”
“You’re just jealous you can’t-”
“Will you lot please drop this? We’re supposed to be planning what to do upon arriving.”
“Oh yeah? With what information? We don’t- we don’t even have sights on the wreck yet!”
Tk’ sighs. This was going to be a long-
“Actually, we did - if you bothered to check the main channel! Ship’s… intact. Surprisingly. Huh.”
“...okay, well. That wasn’t in the original report. That- that doesn’t even look like a wreck. Everyone just get up and leave?”
His hearts drop at that. Tk’ hadn’t checked the main, either. He hears Iris interject;
“Yeah… Place looks… picked clean. Not sure I like that.”
“No kidding.”
“Well, we won’t know until we get inside. Everyone ready?”
“Ready as I’ll ever be for ghosts, I guess.”
A chorus of similar responses comes from the rest of the crew, and the rest of the ride is spent much quieter. Everyone’s retreated back to private channels, but he can tell they’re talking about the ship. Everyone’s glancing at their holoscreens for more information every few seconds, and most shift uncomfortably in their harnesses.
He occupies the rest of the ride playing music in his helmet.
The alert to prepare for insertion cuts off his music as the carrier nears the patrol ship.
“Take a walk, you lot.”
There’s the tell-tale woosh of air being vacuumed out into the void that marked the back of the ship was opening up.
Thhhhhr- clk
The vacuum eats the rest of the noise.
[Group is dispatched on the outside of the ship]
“Bust the door.”
“Attaching the connector.”
After the large, half-barrel, half-[insert something here later] is attached to the entrance, [sequence of entering the ship and orienting themselves to the dormant ship’s floor with magboots]
[Group bust their way into the ship, and find no power. They make their way through the ship, Tk and Iris taking up the rear, using lights on the ends of their guns to scan the hallways.]
[Captain directs to restore power to the ship, preferably lights first, life support second.]
[intermission things of them sweeping the ship and finding only traces of blood, but barely any, and no bodies or anything]
Iris steps up to the door panel, connecting their holopad to the interface and manually ordering it to open, and the captain sends an electrician inside with Tk’. He scans the area, gun held at the ready, carrying the electrician’s excess supplies in his lower arms.
[repeat above note, with banter, preferably avoiding the topic between Tk and Iris]
[Fallen Division people are encountered on the ship, also sweeping the place]
[Iris, excited to be with other humans again, but curious as to why they were dispatched as well, tries to strike up conversation, which devolves into an argument over the others’ seeming bio-phobia]
[it devolves into the argument because Division starts rounding up the rest of the crew and tying them up.]
[Iris, at this point, is gesturing wildly and looks like she’s shouting, but can’t Tk’ tell because of the helmet]
[all from the perspective of Tk’Wrath, still]
[something something If You’re Not With Us, You’re Against Us, but Tk can hardly make it out]
[he can hardly hear it because there’s glass between the crew and Iris and the Division.]
[While the whole If You’re Not With Us thing is being said, that soldier is raising his Space Glock before blowing Iris’ head off, painting the glass red.]
[fade to black as Tk closes his eyes against the gun now pointing at his head, covering his view of the glass, as he repeats a mantra to himself.]
He feels a sharp pressure-
He’s gone.
Yeaaah... So, it's been awhile, huh? So much for just 2 weeks! I've had part 3 written for ages, but wanted to get out part 2 before posting it, but... I'm stuck. I can't bring myself to finish this. If anyone wants to step in and fill this out and continue the story/use the setting, feel free! I just can't bring myself to write anything anymore.
"Fallen Division" is explained in, well, Fallen Division, which I'll be posting after this.
Part 1

2023.03.25 01:46 FriskeCrisps How long would you do extra work before you asked for a salary increase?

I recently found out that our Senior Lead is leaving in the next week or so and our manager has said in Teams chats that she is expecting the rest of the team to help fill the gaps of the Senior workload. Now I have confirmed with our manager that they do expect to make the Senior role open for employment and I do understand that while the hiring process is happening, it's natural to take on the missing roles to ensure things keep running. My question though is how long would you continue doing this extra work until you say you should be getting paid more since you're doing additional duties outside your original job description? My biggest concern is that everyone picks up the additional workload spread out amongst the team, things are able to keep running smoothly, and eventually the senior role doesn't get filled and you have the whole team performing additional tasks outside what they normally do.
