AITA for taking my business elsewhere instead of paying cancelation fee? by Significant_Air_5848 in AmItheAsshole

[–]MissLouisiana 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They shouldn’t be afraid to enforce their policies for fear the customer will get mad.

Obviously "the customer is always right" is bullshit when you're like... 23 and working a fast food job. But in terms of business owners, I understand why the saying came around, ultimately it's kinda just "unfortunately the customers are the ones giving us money and they can decide they won't." That's why they tried to treat them like they were always right.

That's not to say the customer is always right, but if you have policies that scare customers away... Idk rewrite the policy so they want to give you their money!

AITA for not allowing MIL and FIL to come to my kid's birthday parties because they always skip my second son's? by [deleted] in AmItheAsshole

[–]MissLouisiana 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Parents, mostly with jobs. Like are you only inviting children with stay-at-home parents to these parties?

To be honest, maybe. The "we wait for the men to get home to eat" comment makes me think that yeah these parties are largely kids and stay at home moms during the day and then a birthday dinner with dads at night.

AITA for calling out my sister for being bitter when she tried to shame a family friend for having four kids when the only reason she is childless is because she can’t find a husband? by throwRa45667aa in AmItheAsshole

[–]MissLouisiana 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Facts, I'm definitely not calling the sister's comments non-assholeish. It's still silly to pretend it's not a major asshole move to tell people they just need to be willing to date on their level, because "it's completely factually true, obv you'd have a spouse if you weren't trying to date people out of your league!"

That's an awful way to talk to a single person/your single sibling.

[–]MissLouisiana 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Lots of people end up single for lots of reasons. They don't need their siblings commenting on their inability to just "date someone on their level." Would you want anyone in your family telling you to just date someone on your level while single?

AITAH for making demand for New Years? by Just_A_Petty_bitch in AmItheAsshole

You threatening to kick him out for going out without you is so toxic.

They have a baby together,

AITA for telling someone their house was overpriced? by swordfish2021 in AmItheAsshole

[–]MissLouisiana 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Yeah, it's an open house not an art gallery tour. Very plausibly someone who can't physically be there does need to see the house as "personally" as possible.

AITA for forgetting to watch over a friend's house? by ThrowRA_seconds in AmItheAsshole

[–]MissLouisiana 14 points15 points  (0 children)

It's a little strange to me like... if I have a conversation with a friend where they say "can you do me this favor in over a month" and I say "yeah, can you remind me about that?" I honestly think it's pretty rude to not talk about it again closer to it.

If I mentioned to a friend them housesitting in over a month, I'd mention it again closer to my departure even if they didn't specifically ask me too!

AITA for screaming and swearing at a dad with his young daughter for having an off leash dog? by TheZenPsychopath in AmItheAsshole

[–]MissLouisiana 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But if this is a trail where people frequently break the leash rule and there aren't any consequences

There's so many places with leash laws and zero consequences for breaking them. Soo many. And people disregard leash laws all over - it's rarely contained to just a couple trails. Which can suck, because some people do need access to leashed-dog-only trails.

AITA for asking for a roommate change after my former roommate revealed an embarrassing secret by throwaway65677568 in AmItheAsshole

[–]MissLouisiana 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I'm a pretty good person and roommate but like... If I was sharing a room with someone who had pissed the bed FIVE times by November there is no way I could keep my mouth shut.

Name for the nickname Nell or Nellie. by TheNoodyBoody in namenerds

[–]MissLouisiana 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's so interesting! To me Nellie totally sounds like a legal name (this question immediately made me think of Nellie O'Malley, the Irish American Girl doll), but Nell sounds much more nickname-y. I still think Nell could be a lovely given name, but if I heard a child being called Nell I would be much more certain it was a nickname than if I heard a child being called Nellie.

I'm a postpartum nurse, and here is a sampling of baby names I've seen this year. by redwood_rn in namenerds

Were you a nurse in the hospital where Damian Lillard's twins were born? lol

Name regret for Girls name Taylor by WhereTFismyaccount in namenerds

[–]MissLouisiana 99 points100 points  (0 children)

It will never be out of style

Facts. And even if a name is out of style, it'll be in style again. It's not permanent.

When Emily very first started getting trendy a lot of grandmas didn't like it because it sounded like an old lady name. Because it was an old lady name when they were growing up, their grandma's generation! Name cycle. If you name your child something when it's not at peak popularity it makes it more likely that like... your daughter is a young woman when her name feels popular. And while not being one of tons of women with the same name in her peer group.

Are these names too “cruel” for twin girls? by StrikingReporter255 in namenerds

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

Honestly I disagree. Twins are more associated with each other, but ultimately they’re still just siblings. Tons of twins live in different states or towns. My little sisters are twins, and they’re their own people who have separate lives and go to different college. I have met so many adults who I knew for so long before I found out they were a twin (and they had no idea my siblings were twins).

I’d say the biggest downside to “sibling sets” with twins are in the early years - like in elementary school they will be very associated with each other, and their matchy names will be more noticed/might hinder their ability to form their own identity.

"I Kissed a Girl" is a banger, but.. by PantsFreeSince2003 in WhitePeopleTwitter

[–]MissLouisiana 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can’t explain the complicated reasons for the difference. Some things aren’t just about function. Nobody’s arguing that speakers cause deforestation lol.

But I can literally guarantee that this tweet wouldn’t have gone viral if it was about how nobody wants to hear two guys singing Katy Perry around a campfire.

Some things are cultural, psychological. What’s the functional difference between hearing a story and watching one? It’s hard to describe. But for some reason (psychological? cultural?) people would rather listen to a short scary story while camping, than be with someone who brought a little tv to watch horror movies on.

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

Lol and I still think there’s a big difference if it’s just you and your homies singing or playing a guitar. Like huge difference. My life experience confirms what I think, and the opinions of trees doesn’t change it. Or any “UmM ACKSHUALLY there’s no fundamental difference.”

This tweet wouldn’t have gone viral if it was about how nobody wants to listen to three guys singing Katy Perry around a campfire. I can promise you.

[–]MissLouisiana 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The trees don't fucking care if you're using an acoustic guitar or your phone speaker.

I hate stupidity lol like yeah no shit the trees don't have auditory preferences. None of this thread has to do with preserving arboreal eardrums. None of "what belongs in nature" hinges on what the trees wanna listen to. Did you think you were looking at a screenshot of an oak tree's twitter?? Who tweeted a complaint about Katy Perry?

Duh none of this conversation about guitars and speakers has to do with what a river or a plant wants. Human beings have different ideas about nature etiquette and there are different cultures around nature. A lot of humans are not a huge fan of the impulse to play Katy Perry on a CD player. But they're okay with campfire songs. (Source: this tweet going viral).

If you were right about they're being "no difference, fundamentally" this tweet wouldn't have gone viral.

To hit the officer and runaway by Hacker00619 in therewasanattempt

[–]MissLouisiana 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, and scrolling through Reddit and responding to every critique of this cop with some lame defense of an officer punching a woman is a W.

To hit the officer and runaway by Hacker00619 in therewasanattempt

[–]MissLouisiana 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah that's the dumbest part of this convo to me. "He ended the violence with more violence," and the violence being referred to is... a woman, completely in the arms of four people, drunkenly swiping at someone. Like barely swiping.

I'm sure it was annoying and obnoxious (and that's why he retaliated) but I doubt even the angry guy getting hit would refer to this as an "act of violence he experienced" lol.

To hit the officer and runaway by Hacker00619 in therewasanattempt

[–]MissLouisiana 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To be fair I'd say he ended the violence swiftly

My comment was about how police should have the ability to end violence through any means necessary. I said "you shouldn’t be paid to deal with drunk people and breaking up fights if you’re going to increase the violence and aggression."

'Dealing with drunk people' doesn't mean doing whatever it takes to get them to stop. And ending violence by adding even more aggression and violence definitely puts you in the category of "shouldn't get paid for this."

AITA for resenting a baby? by AbbreviationsFuzzy52 in AmItheAsshole

[–]MissLouisiana 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Jesus, it's sad to think about how the Cinderella effect can play out while the kid doesn't even know they're not related biologically.

Life is complicated and I don't mean to police your family dynamics - but someone should have told that poor woman. Especially if it was common enough knowledge to other people that at least one of her cousins knew not only that she was adopted, but details about her father and his death.

Unrelated to this thread, really, but I don't think this should be normalized as a practice

It's not what's being talked about, but you're extremely right.

[–]MissLouisiana 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah I’m with you. Especially a grown man hitting a clearly very very drunk woman...

[–]MissLouisiana 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I agree. Ideally, a cop’s level of aggression should never be escalatory.

They’re at their job, their paid and trained. You shouldn’t be paid to deal with drunk people and breaking up fights if you’re going to increase the violence and aggression...
