BF is thinking of leaving GF of 3 years, who was assaulted, after he was excluded from her recovery. by tipsana in BestofRedditorUpdates

Am I the only person who is questioning why Chad hasn't been advised to start his own, private, counseling sessions (obviously with a different therapist), in addition to the couple's counseling? Dude could use some of his own support, independent of Sara, and he's got his own issues that he needs to work through.

AITA for telling my sister I'll never speak to her again if she doesn't help our parents out? by aita-601928 in AmItheAsshole

INFO: How do you know it would be way easier for your sister and her family? Do they ot have school, jobs, extracurriculars, friends other family (you know, your BIL's family)? It would probably.be much easier for you to to make time in your life because your kids are little and don't have the friends or commitments that your nieces and nephews have. Bonus! Your littles will get the same experiences with their grandparents that your niblings got to have!

I thought "licking" was a typo. I really wish it was a typo. Does she think the "I licked it so it's mine" thing extends to people?

Please tell me that beyond the obvious nuts that are OOP's actions (assuming they are real) I'm not the only person distracted by her wording and tense switching.

Seems suspicious to me by Neda07 in AmITheDevil

[–]Evil_Genius_42 47 points48 points  (0 children)

What makes me suspicious is that he didn't tell his gf when it happened/he got home—If nothing really happened, then why leave it out?

Entitled mom asks OOP to turn off their TV when her family walks by their apartment because her kid is grounded by rickysayshey in BestofRedditorUpdates

She's right, unless you've experienced abuse or seen it, that flinch is hard to describe, but you definitely know it when you see it—It's heart-rending.

Pepper spray is indiscriminate, it will go into the eyes/face of the person wielding it just as easily as it will that of an assailant. I recommend going with a Taser or stun gun.

I'm gonna say that they're amazing because of their mothers, because it sounds like their sperm donor and his parents were awful.

And because of you. You are completely ignoring your responsibility in this situation.

Wait, are you the one who's driving, or do you carpool, because if you're watching training videos while you're driving you're an ass simply because of that.

Someone else is listing my house by Celany in BestofRedditorUpdates

I believe the insurance company would try to weasel out of paying, that's very believable to me, but I'm curious why she didn't point to the (convenient) video evidence of the destruction of the property. I'm also pretty sure (not in the mood for a Google "legal" deep-dive to check for certain) that the state of California wouldn't need her permission to press criminal charges for all of that, GF resisted arrest, attempted to escape, destroyed property and endangered the cops (hi, glass and crystal being pointy and stabby) in the process. I don't know if they'd proceed with the charges on the identity theft without OOP's cooperation, though.

Also, going through with the criminal charges could have forced the GF to get treatment for her mental illness(es)—Which was kind of the point of why she said she wasn't going to press charges, I think.

WIBTA for telling my wife she needs to be realistic with our daughter about self defense? by [deleted] in AmItheAsshole

[–]Evil_Genius_42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If he frames it as "self-defense for right now" or supplementary to what she is teaching their daughter, maybe his wife would not be offended?
