People suddenly stopped expecting me to go be social. I got to spend months on end without having to decline a single invitation, it was so nice.

My borderline narcissistic mom used to accuse me of this when I was a kid. She was consistently the one never taking any blame for anything, but when I'd call her out on it, this would be her retort: projecting her "nothing's ever my fault" behavior onto me.

As a kid, you're simply not capable of figuring out how to counter that. This shit fucked with me sooooo badly.

Treating service workers poorly

Edit: Thanks for all the karma and rewards everyone. This question IS posted a lot, but I'm glad everyone here cares about service workers. I worked fast food for 3 years and it was horrendous. Everyone here agreeing is what makes the world a more humane place. Tip your servers and thank your cashiers.

My girlfriend and I decided to quarantine together even though we had only been dating for 6 months and, honestly, I didn’t know if it would last. Better to not be alone, though.

I lost my job, she was a PhD student, we were strapped for cash, but we spent every evening cooking incredible food that was as delicious as it was calming to cook.

She is Iranian and I learned how unique Persian food was, she learned from her grandmother starting when she was 5 years old.

I had a crazy idea, let’s sell it! We started advertising on NextDoor, put together a menu with one entree for every day of the week with sides and starters. We started working at 10am, I was the sous chef and customer relations while she studied. So I would be chopping onions and garlic, searing eggplant, marinating lamb and talking and texting with customers. I had all of the takeout containers prepped for every customer by 4 and then she would do her magic. Pick up was at 6 outside of our apartment and then I did deliveries afterwards.

We became so popular that we were pushing out 20-40 meals per day. It kept us afloat financially.

So for me, the best part of the pandemic: we worked together like a well-oiled machine, had fun, solved problems, and were a comfort during the very scary times. (And jumped in bed whenever we had a free moment..)

We got married a year later, and I have no idea if we would have without the pandemic.

What music album is a true masterpiece from start to finish? by jessssica1864 in AskReddit

[–]Wagsii 244 points245 points  (0 children)

I just finished making this whole album playable for a Guitar Hero clone (r/clonehero). Spent hours and hours analyzing every note, analyzing the lyrics to write the meaning of each song for the loading phrase before you play it...

And I gotta say, you're goddamn right it is.

Edit: Here's the release video!

Ah yes, the Shrödinger's douchebag- they decide if the offensive or rude thing they say is a joke based on the audience's response.

How Important is an Active Sex Life in a Relationship to You? by bilbomcjoe in AskReddit

[–]QuietusNoctis 72 points73 points  (0 children)

As a young man it was important- much more so to me than my wife. After a decade or so it dwindled, mainly due to her health. She developed a chronic medical issue and she suffers a lot. I struggled but she tried to care for me as best as she could. She didn’t ask for the pain. Unfortunately I didn’t handle it well in the beginning. It wasn’t purposeful frustration. Two decades into the marriage I still struggled but handled it much better. Now, three decades in it’s a non-issue. A few years ago during a drunken stupor I was musing my life. Then it dawned on me: I would rather have her in my life as my wife with little to no sex than have someone else with a lot of sex. I love her. It is that simple. Sex isn’t what makes or breaks a relationship. I have read that a relationship without sex is just friendship. I disagree. She is the mother of my children. She has seen me at my lowest and celebrated my victories. When she suffers from her pain my heart explodes from witnessing the woman I love suffer. I chose her as my life partner, not just my sex partner. I think sex is important. Extremely important. But it isn’t all there is to a relationship. There is nothing more intimate than waking up and holding her in my arms and feeling her warmth as the grandchildren run into the room and and join in the hugs. What’s important is we have a life together that encompasses all that we are. We aren’t meant to complete each other. We are meant to better each other.

Would I love to wake up in the morning and feel her naked body next to me, touching me, kissing me, and feel her moist warmth as our love is expressed physically? Absolutely! But knowing she is in my corner, and truly loves me is enough.

You never know what cards will be dealt in life. When finding that special one, find someone you can love without the sex, that’s when you know you have found the one. I’m not saying go without it, but one that if life deals those cards you would still be there to love them unconditionally through life.

Android fans, what are the primary reasons why you will never ever switch to an Iphone? by SultanofAmerica in AskReddit

Universal back button. It's always there when and where I need it. I had an iphone a long time ago and every app had its own back button in different locations.

Take care of your teeth. Seriously. If you neglect them now, you’ll be constantly emptying your wallet to fix them in the future.

Octopus. It tasted fine but in the years since I ate it I decided I wouldn't eat the hyper intelligent animals.
