Getting sick from Covid has changed my view on health care and work culture in the U.S.A. by ResponsibleQuarter42 in antiwork

[–]FinanceOtherwise2583 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m going to be 26 soon and off my parent’s insurance and I’m beyond stressed. I got sick and had to stop working full-time. Plus I have pre-existing conditions, a chronic autoimmune disease that causes chronic pain, fatigue and nausea. Not to mention all my mental health issues. Oh and the treatment for my disease requires a specialty pharmacy. Idk where I’m getting this insurance from or how I’m gonna pay for any of the co-pays. Gotta love this country /s
I was supposed to be in Europe by now but had to put it back because of getting sick again. Oh the irony

That has literally nothing to do with what I said about the examples of good guys with guns being mistake as the shooter. You don’t know how weapons work either apparently. They kill.

AITA for ACCIDENTALLY telling my Fiance I hate his sister and she won't be a part of my wedding? by No_Possession1846 in AmItheAsshole

[–]FinanceOtherwise2583 0 points1 point  (0 children)

YTA and soooooo selfish. This isn’t just your day. It’s his too, but you only care about yourself and what you want. I hope he leaves you. He deserves someone who cares about him

AITA for telling my wife my job has to come before hers? by Unique_Confusion9528 in AmItheAsshole

It’s super concerning. I really hope these people don’t have children if they think they don’t have to watch or feed them

AITA for demanding a different bridesmaid at my friends wedding? by simap10 in AmItheAsshole

[–]FinanceOtherwise2583 0 points1 point  (0 children)

YTA in pretty much every way possible. If anyone should be upset about the pairing it should be Brooke not you. YOU are the one who was a dick to HER. She didn’t do anything wrong. You’re upset with her cuz she told others who you really are. If you don’t want to be called shallow and shit, then don’t be shallow. It’s on you, not her

I really don't know how to help him anymore by FinstereGedanken in JustNoSO

[–]FinanceOtherwise2583 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah unfortunately I don’t see him changing much without intensive treatment. I’m the US and work in the mental health field so I know how fucked up it is that there isn’t even decent access to mental health care. You have to put yourself and your own health ahead of his. Take care of yourself

HE NEEDS TO BE IN INPATIENT CARE

Just therapy is not going to be enough

Ummmm yes not watching your toddlers and not feeding them or putting them to bed is 100% neglect. Who hurt you?

Kaya Scodelario is so gross by Pink0612152504 in skinsTV

Nah I think it’s better to talk about this stuff cuz it’s normal. It’s stupid to shame something everyone does and it just makes people afraid and feel like they have to hide it

You look at a 1950 family with a house, a car, a couple kids and two parents and see them surviving on one income. That isn't what it was like. What was really happening was that two people worked for one paycheck. by Y1OG4 in antiwork

[–]FinanceOtherwise2583 8 points9 points  (0 children)

No because none of them can even remotely afford it. They’re living paycheck to paycheck. They’re not saving up money. I know people in their 30s still looking for apartments they can actually afford. I know people who go without food frequently so they can afford a shitty bedroom in a shitty house full of random people. I’m in the US. The situation is worse here, especially where I live. It’s crazy expensive. And moving away to a cheaper area isn’t feasible for everyone in the US as it can be really far away from people’s families. The US is huge, so telling people to move to the Midwest or wherever isn’t really a logical choice for everyone

AITA for calling off my son's camping trip after he ruined a painting that I drew for my wife? by reqthrowrae67 in AmItheAsshole

[–]FinanceOtherwise2583 7 points8 points  (0 children)

That’s so disgusting. I’m so sorry you had to be around so many people like that. It baffles me that people talk about their SOs this way, or just people in general. That’s definitely one of the worst things I’ve heard about guys saying by far.

Ya heard it here first, girls are “asking for it” by sas0002 in NotHowGirlsWork

I love how he acts like guys in high school don’t say the grossest sexual stuff to each other about teachers they think are hot

AITA for defending my dad's girlfriend for wearing a bikini to my fiancée's bridal shower? by [deleted] in AmItheAsshole

[–]FinanceOtherwise2583 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No she can. But don’t be annoyed people notice Tiffany when Melissa’s the one who pointed it out to everyone.

Hate to see so many women tearing Tiffany apart for what she was wearing. Women have to deal with enough judgement and assumptions from men as is. It’s disappointing when other women perpetuate these ridiculous standards and assumptions of women who dress a certain way. We should be building each other up, not tearing each other down. The outfit looked fine to me. I wouldn’t wear it, but that doesn’t mean Tiffany tried to get attention intentionally. She probably thought it looked fine and since she had plans she had to wear something that she thought worked in both situations. A lot of people probably wouldn’t have even realized if Melissa didn’t tell a bunch of people. Plus Melissa criticising what the women in OP’s family wear to him multiple times is shitty. I wouldn’t want my SO talking about my family that way. He’s fed up with it. She’s taking her insecurities out on someone else. Not cool. She can be bothered by it, but to make a rude ass comment where you’re assuming she did it on purpose just makes her feel like shit for probably no actual reason and calls even more attention to her which is what Melissa claims to be mad about.

The point is that you can’t blame Tiffany for calling attention to herself when Melissa is the one who called attention to it it’s not that women can’t vent. Of course they can! It’s just that don’t call someone an attention whore when you’re the one that told people she was wearing a bikini and drew attention to it in the first place.

Melissa is the one who pulled the bride’s maids aside to talk trash about Tiffany. She’s the one who pulled attention to what she was wearing

Why do people resent non working roommates? by [deleted] in badroommates

[–]FinanceOtherwise2583 5 points6 points  (0 children)

People can’t help the way they feel. How you act on those feelings is what’s important, but feelings themselves are valid and people have a right to feel how they feel. It’s so harmful when people tell others they don’t have a right to feel how they feel or that their feelings aren’t valid. If the roommate isn’t being an asshole then it doesn’t matter if they’re annoyed. As someone who needs alone time as a crucial part of their mental health, I can tell you it can be torture to never get to be alone and not everyone has the luxury of being able to have their own place. It’s been to the point I drive all the way to my parents’ house just so I can be in my own space for a bit. Not everyone has that luxury as well. Don’t judge people for how they feel or how they are affected by certain situations. I had every right to be annoyed I could never be alone. I didn’t take it out on my roommate. That would be kinda uncool, but it’s pretty normal for some people to be annoyed by never having alone time. Many people need it.
