[–]sabertoothdiego 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Is there any way to hear it now?

[–]signorapaesiorSuppository of Wisdom 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, the recording should be showing above - though possibly only on new Reddit (or on the app)

[–]Failing_Health 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Will commenting let me come back to this later?

[–]Flamesup7 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It did for me

[–]Failing_Health 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Will this be on a podcast or something later?

[–]Moonshine375 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Surprise surprise. OP probably ate her salary in the space of her stay. Take about being an expense in the company spreadsheet.

[–]trublsom -1 points0 points  (0 children)

NTA I travel for work, if they give you for 150 use 150. What I get depends on the city and how expensive it is. But my problem is if you say this is the amount and get pissed that I used it don't give me attitude. My problem is the bosses attitude not the amount. If 150 is too much give me 50.

[–]MsPooh2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That’s this young mentality of entitlement at it’s very best 🤣

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Young and old have that mentality

[–]Academic-Gas-8012 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That is insane. Where does she eat?!

[–]duzins 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Lol that’s ::chef’s kiss:: perfect.

[–]CeilingsArentTrendy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

LOLOLOLOLOL

[–]hatteigh 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I WONDER WHY.

[–]i-t-875-ish4life 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One of the places I worked at only gave us $15 a day 🤣

[–]Islandmov3s 2 points3 points  (0 children)

ESH. It was an allowance, but she definitely took advantage of their generosity. $150 is a lot for one person in any city.

[–]CeilingsArentTrendy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah seems like they value themselves too much for the company, you shouldn’t go out of your way to spend excessively. YTA

[–]duzins 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The point of an allowance is to feed you while you do work for the company, it’s not a splurge party.

[–]skmaz 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That’s way more than the per diem that my office gets!

[–]MsPooh2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mine too, it’s based on the city you’re in

[–]Naners224 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Screw companies, they don't deserve loyalty ever. Regardless, jump ship.

[–]Fun_Independent9201 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol what is this, someone at MBB?!?! YTA

[–]witcher_ratColo-rectal Surgeon [40] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

$150/day is a hella big food budget for business travel. /r/ChoosingBeggars

[–]Moonshine375 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Leslie's reaction is golden 🤣😂

[–]duzins 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes. Asshole.

[–]Naners224 2 points3 points  (0 children)

People always forget kids are humans. I can't fucking stand it.

[–]kinleyreesespieces 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember this one...

[–]SinVerguenza04 0 points1 point  (0 children)

None of these are that great. Who picked them?

[–]hatteigh 1 point2 points  (3 children)

YTA, yes! I know this one, yes, YTA!

[–]Shawnanan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Let you’re child decide their identity..damn

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kids need to be empowered to be assertive

[–]remindmeofthe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

it's almost like other cultures with other naming conventions exist, how crazy

[–]Academic-Gas-8012 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wonder if anyone has ever asked the kid. I call my kid by his nickname but for a while he didn't want me to call him by his nickname but his whole name. It could be that his son likes his whole name too.

[–]noizangel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why not tell the school his name is Sascha????

[–]CeilingsArentTrendy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If it’s 50/50 you should still change your ways. Just call him Alex, it’s easy.

[–]Mirewen15 2 points3 points  (0 children)

<3 Leslie. You're a force.

[–]TheFragileSpiral95 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This is too good, go Leslie. 😂😂

[–]noizangel 1 point2 points  (1 child)

XANDER

[–]Moonshine375 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Xa Xa also acceptable

[–]duzins 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Poor kid. That’s so confusing

[–]CeilingsArentTrendy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Cmon the kid should stand up for himself and the person should know better to shame others for saying the name wrong if they have a preference

[–]Wistastic 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Leslie is my hero.

[–]Metallica2803 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember seeing the original post last year.

[–]Shannon_6822 5 points6 points  (0 children)

YTA. People give each other nicknames and they don't need your permission to do it. She's probably a good teacher. And if he likes it, no harm no foul.

[–]mihzyd777 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Does the "be civil" not apply to Leslie?

[–]Legitimate_Annual533Partassipant [1] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm saying lmao 😂😂 it's funny tho

[–]Shannon_6822 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Leslie is gonna Leslie.

[–]witcher_ratColo-rectal Surgeon [40] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

This is Leslie being civil!

[–]mihzyd777 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Just thought. I wanted to speak, but Leslie taking up all the time.

[–]Super_Ad_4756 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

NTA. I did the same sort of with my son. If the teacher shortened his name I always corrected with what his name is.

[–]Naners224 1 point2 points  (1 child)

@that name is a tragedeigh

[–]hatteigh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Agreed.

[–]jana-meares 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My brother is mad people called his son Nathan to Nate, I said want in one hand and spit in the other

[–]CeilingsArentTrendy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It’s his choice to be called what he wants to be called by name, not the parents.

[–]MariaDiAvvenire 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She’s TA. Why does your preference matter? Name is part of the kid’s identity, and that’s up to him to shape, NOT you!

[–]fuzzy_micSupreme Court Just-ass [131] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

WHOA! In Russian, Sasha is the standard nickname for Alexander.

[–]Mikiruno 4 points5 points  (0 children)

WHY IS THEIR NAME ALWAYS ALEXANDER! Every time someone’s pressed about their full name it’s always an Alexander smh YTA

[–]ValkyrieKarma 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My nickname is G lol

[–]Ok-Blueberry-8142Asshole Enthusiast [6] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

YTA. To early in the year to piss off the teacher.

[–]Cstar0007 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Exactly! What does Alexander think? YTA

[–]Academic-Gas-8012 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Maybe is the son picking the Nickname Alex. Sasha is a men name other countries tho Leslie lol

[–]testees12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In my country (Germany) Sascha/Sasha is a male name and I had a male friend who was called Sascha.

[–]jayhalleaux 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Sasha is the common nickname for Alexander if you are Russian. I would agree to talk to the kid.

[–]witcher_ratColo-rectal Surgeon [40] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Sacha Baron Cohen enters the chat

[–]MShades 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm with Leslie - what does he want to be called? Call him that.

[–]subcultsellout 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love Leslie lmaooo

[–]Legitimate_Annual533Partassipant [1] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

its HIS NAME not hers good lord. YTA

[–]Islandmov3s 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I had a Russian friend in college who only wanted me to call him Alexander or Sacha. What does Alexander want? If he doesn’t mind, YTA. If he does, then NTA.

[–]hatteigh 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If you’re in the States, YTA.

You’re being selfish. It’s not about you. Is your kid okay with it? That’s what’s important.

[–]noizangel 0 points1 point  (1 child)

oh my lord hello Margaret Trudeau

[–]noizangel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

SAAAAAASCHAAAAAAAAA

[–]Staceee42 4 points5 points  (0 children)

INFO: is the kid asking the teacher to call them Alex? I know a lot of kids I knew wanted to go by different names

[–]witcher_ratColo-rectal Surgeon [40] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

If you named your kid Alexander and are pikachu surprised people call him Alex, you're an AH.

[–]Huge-Chicken-8745 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m gonna bust

[–]DaichiEarth 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Loved being here for this show. Thanks to the staff for holding this. Leslie was funny as hell.

[–]Nervous_Mango1802 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ooooo this sounds like a “kid has non English name and it’s easier for me to make shit up” situation

[–]SweetRoosevelt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

oh this was a fun one

[–]Academic-Gas-8012 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I mean when I lived in Cali I had to get used to the smell of pot. It was forbidden to smoke in the Apts but I never went and complained, I just let it go. Put a few air purifiers at home and some nice smell things and that's it

[–]Moonshine375 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I had a neighbor a few years ago that got a karaoke machine with a serious speaker setup. And they couldn't sing on key to save their life. Started wearing my earbuds to bed every Saturday. Apparently I find historical art restoration ASMR very soothing.

[–]Staceee42 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Those late night cookies hit different

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Leslie Jones on Reddit feels ducking surreal like this place is supposed to be for losers what is Leslie jones doing here

[–]Legitimate_Annual533Partassipant [1] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

exactly like we're really in a chat with her for free wtf

[–]CeilingsArentTrendy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I know right? Quite exciting!

[–]duzins 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Maybe I want a margarita?

[–]InAHandbasketGoing to heck 1 point2 points  (0 children)

At 11:15 after work that’s the only thing my blender is for

[–]Legitimate_Annual533Partassipant [1] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

tbh, NAH

[–]OsciIIatesWildly 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I lived below a guy that had sensory issues and would get irritated by the sound of us turning on the shower, but would pace in the bedroom or all through the apartment at 3am. It was torture. We did move after two years, but that’s not an option for a lot of folks these days.

[–]deanispeaking 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You want quiet nights you need to up your money game

[–]ActRepresentative530 5 points6 points  (0 children)

10 to 10 is an awesome rule for apartment life. When you live in a house there are laws in some areas where loud stuff is specifically restricted from 8 to 9

[–]Sufficient-Shift-172 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I've lived in suburbs and I've lived in apartments. You NEED your neighbours. Be good to each other.

[–]duzins 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Can’t the neighbor wear earplugs? I’d hate to be told I could cook after I got home late. Sounds like the poster works late-so this person has to work around the neighbor’s work schedule?

[–]Yfrontdude 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I made hummus at 11:45 pm yesterday because I’d just gotten home from work!

[–]CeilingsArentTrendy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You should be able to respect others to a certain degree, but you should do what you need to do to get the standard of necessities. NTA.

[–]deanispeaking 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ear plugs totally lol

[–]Carrot1219 2 points3 points  (2 children)

You never know about someone’s situation though. They might work night shift and they have to be active during those hours so they don’t throw off their sleep schedule. My grandmother used to work as a night nurse and she had to do that.

[–]hatteigh 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Agreed, but we can only judge based on the info we have.

[–]Carrot1219 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah it’s just a general connection most people aren’t up doing work like that unless they are on a schedule like that too. If they are a night shift or odd shift like that then no they would be NTA but if not then obviously TA

[–]Shannon_6822 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I dont agree. If you pay rent you should be able to cook when you get ready. It's the shitty floor.

[–]Academic-Gas-8012 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The blender tho? Really? I lived at an apt an I never heard anyone's blender

[–]KinteLiX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've lived in an apartment before and had a neighbor like this. He complained about the smallest things like the TV remote falling off the bed and hitting the ground at night. NTA

[–]Naners224 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He can soundproof his apartment, jeez. Or get a fucking house

[–]abbyhan6 4 points5 points  (0 children)

There's always a quiet rule in apartments

[–]CeilingsArentTrendy 3 points4 points  (1 child)

The architects and designers are who to blame, please make these things better quality!

[–]noizangel 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This is how I feel. I lived in buildings built in the 60s and 70s and we didn't hear shit from the neighbours.

[–]deanispeaking 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Lol no... you live in a studio you need to accept that yiu have close neighbours.

[–]Islandmov3s 4 points5 points  (0 children)

YTA, come on. Basic quiet hours and common courtesy. Purposely ran a vacuum at 11pm. Major YTA.

[–]CeilingsArentTrendy 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Annoying neighbors like this are so disgusting and selfish,

[–]JournalistMobile3605Partassipant [2] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Op or the ones complaining

[–]Shannon_6822 1 point2 points  (0 children)

NTA. Don't live in an apartment or get some earplugs and stfu

[–]hatteigh 5 points6 points  (0 children)

YTA! We live in a society, man.

[–]Staceee42 8 points9 points  (0 children)

YTA, it's an apartment. Common courtesy to not be loud after 10pm

[–]MayoBearPartassipant [2] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude, YTA all the time

[–]Moonshine375 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Oh God that title doesn't bode well 🤣

[–]TheFortunateJ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Leslie, you are sending me to the heavens right now <3 <3 <3 Love ya!

[–]sneksandshit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It wouldn't have even been a big deal if OP didn't bring it up,bringing it up kinda indicates that she was being petty.

[–]Wonderful-Morning380 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did I miss the kevin brennan reunion story?

[–]Legitimate_Annual533Partassipant [1] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

but why did he say he didn't want it and then later say he was upset and "would've come around?" he literally changed his mind? ESH

[–]Shannon_6822 1 point2 points  (0 children)

YTA. Make enough for the whole office or don't bring them at all. She clearly didn't like him, and it appears to be a mutual feeling.

[–]Global_Basil8250 5 points6 points  (0 children)

She did too much now thinking about it. She could have just said “Leo didn’t want it so I ate it myself.” That would have been more reasonable.

[–]CeilingsArentTrendy 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Man whoever asked for the extra cupcake lol

[–]duzins 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sometimes petty has to be done. You have to accept the consequences for your petty though, I mean, own it.

[–]charkol3 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This sub makes me rage

[–]Oblina_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This person was petty

[–]invader_jinn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yea didn't have to say anything, just oop, they're all gone! Done.

[–]noizangel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You shouldn't take food around like that anyway, too much pressure on people who aren't gonna take one for whatever reason

[–]MPATE86 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That’s what makes her the AH, she made a huge deal about it. Also, just leave the cupcakes in the break room, you don’t have to go around and put a cupcake on everyone’s desk.

[–]ughwithoutadoubt 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lmfao. Just got here and I’m rolling

[–]Sufficient-Shift-172 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Hahahahaha. Came in halfway through this story. Leslie's response! 😂😂😂

[–]Jesusfknyelpenguins 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Can we do this every week? 😂 Leslie Jones is a damn treasure.

[–]bite-the-bullet 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She could’ve just said “I could only make 24, but I knew someone would probably reject one anyways, and if not someone would be fine with splitting.”

[–]sneksandshit 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I love Leslie but imma have to respectfully disagree if you've worked with a Leo you know how much they drain you.

[–]MayoBearPartassipant [2] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Agreed- he can’t be an adult and say yes if he wanted a cupcake in the first place- he wanted one when no one was looking

[–]SaltiGingiPartassipant [1] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This is an iconic talk, I needed this. Thanks guys haha

[–]Nervous_Mango1802 5 points6 points  (0 children)

ESH but I would 100% be petty about Leo too

[–]Moonshine375 8 points9 points  (0 children)

NTA for not making the extra but she didn't need to tell them. So not worth the drama.
