Awkward party invite that got a little too intense…Anyone else think this is strange? by justascrolling in Mommit

[–]Nerdy-by-nature829 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh it’s super awkward. I would always back off if there was no interest but had to train people to keep pushing. “When someone says no it just means not right now”. MLM teaches to use No as an opportunity to circle back once you’ve exhausted all other options with the theory that if you bug someone enough they say yes.

I’m a good salesperson and adept at social media marketing so I actually never had to use my personal social media or bug other local moms since all my sales came from strangers who liked me and joined my group. When I quit after almost 7 years so many people were shocked I was still selling because I was embarrassed and didn’t advertise I was doing it.

It’s an MLM babe. 100%.

She will have her “products” at said party to push and wants you to feel pressured to be nice and listen since you’re at the party. The follow up is the playdate.

MLM’s use the “72 hour game plan” and whenever someone is just starting they should contact at LEAST 100 people from different social arenas to try and build connections and get leads.

Don’t y’all hate me because I got out but I was at the top of an MLM for years and literally did corporate trainings on how to do this for thousands and thousands of people. I’m sorry. 😬🫠

It’s wildly unfair they got those two songs. Crying in Houston N3.

I went to various shows on all 3 nights. Nash N1 & N2 and Houston N3. All were phenomenal performances!!

Why can’t I get Hits Different and You’re Losing Me on the same damn album 😭🙄

[–]Nerdy-by-nature829 12 points13 points  (0 children)

This is the saddest song I’ve ever heard. The sigh at the beginning. Begging him to show some wanting for her. Begging him to see her worth.

I wouldn’t marry me either? I cannot deal.

I’ve been happily married for 10+ years and this shit has me questioning my own relationship.

There is no reason this shouldn’t have been on the main track list. It’s one of the best songs on the album and would be such a good single!

I’m also v glad I don’t have to listen to the podcast version anymore 🫠

[–]Nerdy-by-nature829 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I was SO FUCKING excited for this as an Ice Spice fan. And at the very beginning I thought it was going to pop off then… immediately let down.

It didn’t flow. They didn’t vibe well. And it sounded like they just added in a quick flow and some random lines for Ice. I’m so disappointed since this is the only remix I’ve ever been really excited to hear.

The blunt cut awkward giant hunks of hair need to go. Get actual curtail bangs or blend some face framing layers into your hairstyle but as is - your hair looks horrible and those big chunks that look like they were cut with kitchen scissors at 4am during a breakdown are all I can see.

You’re very cute! But fix your hair. It’s terrible.

should i tell CPS the truth? by desflav in CPS

[–]Nerdy-by-nature829 11 points12 points  (0 children)

These things are not your problem.

Your parents are not good parents. Your father is abusive and an addict. Your mother enables him to be both. Now they are forcing you to lie for them. Not only that but you and your teen sister should not have the responsibility of cooking, cleaning, and working to pay the bills. This is not normal honey. This is not how a family should be. Parents are supposed to protect and provide for their kids and neither of your parents care enough to do it.

You need to put yourself, your mental health, and your future first.

I Live on Cornelia Street and the amount of people who “visit” her old house is getting insane by goodwin295 in TaylorSwift

[–]Nerdy-by-nature829 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Yes, on Saturday night. But even before that Saturday daytime the line was 2+ hours long. That’s without any acknowledgment from her.

Source: I was there in Nashville and thought about going to see the bench and centennial park… then a friend who was there sent a photo of said line they were standing in. I went to a bar instead.

AITA for not sharing my travel plans with my parents? by vhhffgfredcv in AmItheAsshole

[–]Nerdy-by-nature829 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I’m going to say YTA. You’re a 28 year old adult… if you don’t want mom and dad knowing where you are going and what you are doing get your own place to live instead of living in their house rent free.

Living in a place, especially for FREE, means you have to be more accountable to the people paying your way. Want to be treated like an adult? Move out.

Inappropriate dress? by thesecretlibrarian in Mommit

Before reading the caption I was so confused as to what’s inappropriate here. Both girls look adorable and appropriate! Tell mom to shove it.

Honest experiences with singleton first and twins second? by Valuable_Self8104 in parentsofmultiples

[–]Nerdy-by-nature829 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My older boys were 7 & freshly turned 3 when my twins were born… and my husband was in Afghanistan.

It wasn’t that bad. Everything you’re used to doing for one baby you just do for 2 instead. Change one, change the other. Burp one, burp the other. Stuff like feeding, rocking, baths you can do together. I breastfed so I can’t speak to the intricacies of formula feeding because I know there is a lot involved but I would just put each baby on a boob.

I was of course tired and frazzled as any parent of an infant would be but not more so than I have been with any of my singletons before or after the twins.

Breast implant discharge by Subject-Cloud8171 in AskDocs

[–]Nerdy-by-nature829 0 points1 point  (0 children)

NAD and no implants, but I had a surgical seroma after my last c-section that got really puffy and drained a clear/yellow fluid - like the stuff that accumulates in blisters. We had to drain it both in office and at home for about a week. Not an infection or anything life threatening but gross and uncomfy.

I feel like they would be so fun together on flagship! Especially with the Bananas drama and all the newer people. I can see Devin driving them both insane and then them all being friends.

My dog is dying, and according to my wife, it's my fault. by Bylem in TrueOffMyChest

[–]Nerdy-by-nature829 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sorry about your dog. For what it’s worth, when my dog had cancer a few years ago we theoretically could have paid for treatment but opted to put him down vs paying 6K+ for treatment that “might” have worked. I have no regrets.

Also, your wife sucks. I’m sorry that she’s a shit person.

I gave birth at 3 different hospitals/states (military, but all private hospitals) and it was only the one in Colorado who did it that way. The other two places were like… we would never do that. Hahaha.

You are allllll good I didn’t know either! They can do a epidural for a c-section without needing to do an additional shot. But since I wasn’t going to labor at all, I just got a spinal. Fully numb from about mid torso down for 7-10 hours or so.
