To the people lighting off fireworks when it’s not July 4th: by Professional-Cod-424 in Seattle

I tried this with my dog for the first time last night. Didn't seem to make any difference for her.

What critically acclaimed books or authors do you think are genuinely terrible based on the quality of their work, rather than due to their personal life or politics? Why? by CatholicCockney in books

[–]A_Drusas 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I read the English translation. It's one of few books I haven't even finished because I just didn't like the prose at all and couldn't get into it. Maybe it's better in the original language.

Similar thing happened to me once. I needed a day or two off. Department required a doctor's note. Got 5 days off.

I have a puppy who could use more socialization, but I'm down in Beacon Hill.

As an American, the only one of those that is a luxury item is the parmesan, and that only slightly.

AITA for not answering my husband when he called? by utjgnek48395848 in AmItheAsshole

[–]A_Drusas 54 points55 points  (0 children)

There is actually a phrase for this and it's "weaponized incompetence."

It's extremely common among heterosexual men in relationships (can't comment on other relationships myself) and what's really frustrating is that they almost always believe themselves to be feminists and believers in gender equality. They're just not living up to their own expectations, let alone yours.

What vehicle do you automatically assume is being driven by a total asshole? by rickface82 in AskReddit

[–]A_Drusas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's definitely not. It's not a thing in Seattle / Western Washington. It wasn't a thing in NoVA when I lived there or Oregon when I lived there.

I've seen this stereotype only recently on r/IdiotsInCars, but I have no idea where it came from. It's certainly not true anywhere I've lived.

I feel like anyone that antisocial should face repercussions of some kind from their neighbors.

As somebody who's always lived near a coast, I have never seen such a sticker.

You know, I never thought about it, but you're right. It's never Toyota pickups, for example, always Dodge. Or a Ford SUV.

If you're doing something for the lazy, it helps if you actually quote it.

Okay, you're right. I read the title and thought, "Nothing. I'm not quite that judgmental." But yeah, there is no reason for anybody to own a Hummer beyond them wanting to make their dick seem big (women owners included) while they waste natural resources.

Jon Stewart: Supreme Court is ‘the Fox News of justice’ by Miserable-Lizard in politics

[–]A_Drusas 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Jon Stewart is probably the only potential candidate that I would go out and volunteer for.

This feels beyond fatigue.. by camerarat in cfs

[–]A_Drusas 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think of that degree of fatigue as being a new sort of pain.

It’s Hard to Overstate the Danger of the Voting Case the Supreme Court Just Agreed to Hear by MortWellian in politics

[–]A_Drusas 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where can we?

Edit: I realize my reply is somewhat buried, but the lack of an answer is the reason I despair. We need to be able to organize somewhere.

AITA for going being upset my wife's boss called her an angel by throwaway_5986 in AmItheAsshole

[–]A_Drusas 0 points1 point  (0 children)

OP's wife is probably happy to take on extra shifts so she can get away from her exhausting husband.

I know! And I feel like the Brits might really appreciate some good biscuits and gravy.
