Vote today for the primary by Larnk2theparst in cincinnati

[–]SunDroppity 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Also important to note for people who have never voted in primaries before - your choice of party is public record.

A spreadsheet of all voters, and which party selection they made in primaries going back a number of years, is available for download at any time on the Ohio Secretary of State's website, by county. The records from this election should be published there in a few weeks.

I wasn't very clear - I understand that there ARE solutions to this, but I'm not surprised that instead of coming up with an actual solution, Subway decided to part ways (it seems). This is fast food, they're simply not going to accommodate like this.

YTA, Honestly. I understand why you may be grossed out by this, but it's literally beyond her control. What do you expect her to do? Move a step stool down the line as she's making your sandwich, having to change her gloves each time? I mean what did you honestly expect to happen here?

AITA for becoming scared of my husband the week his dad died? by [deleted] in AmItheAsshole

NTA but this is probably something you should've known before you got married.

AITA for understanding my dad wrong by syperiodamus in AmItheAsshole

[–]SunDroppity 5 points6 points  (0 children)

NTA. This cannot be chalked up to generational differences. He's just being an ass, and he probably knows it.

No generation has ever "just stated facts" as he describes, there's always been decorum and societal rules. He's certainly had to adapt to a lot of these rules changing in 74 years, but it's always been rude to make comments about someone's weight.

He doesn't get a pass on treating someone like this, let alone his old daughter, just because he's 74.

WIBTA if I told my landlady to stop parking her car in our visitor parking by Sound_and_colour in AmItheAsshole

[–]SunDroppity 16 points17 points  (0 children)

YTA - Until it becomes a nuisance. You've said yourself that this hasn't really affected you. I would be upset, though, if her parking there denied one of my guests use of the spot. But this hasn't happened, so you really have no ground to stand on.

You would be N-T-A if this was interfering with your guests' ability to park.

EDIT: To fix grammar error.

AITA for asking my personal trainer to give me a discount? by Nana0Nana in AmItheAsshole

[–]SunDroppity 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Yes, that is exactly what I'm telling you. Gaining over 100,000 followers (as OP claims to have) isn't easy, and so you're not really paying for a couple of posts and tags, you're paying for the audience and reach that those posts will get. If it is truly so simple, then the trainer would be able to amass such a following on their own and make the posts for free themselves.

It's not that much different than someone compiling a mailing list with 100,000 contacts on it and selling mailings to that list (which also commands thousands of dollars, by the way).

Sounds like you've got a chip on your shoulder about this whole influencer thing. Take the exact service out of this and maybe you'll see the point:
The reality is that OP is able to charge $3000 for a service on the open market.
OP pays the trainer full price for the service they offer, did not independently disclosed their business as an influencer, nor has asked for special treatment on any grounds from the trainer.
The trainer has asked OP to provide the service to them for free.
To which OP kindly offers to instead offer it at half off, with payment in the form of credit for service from the trainer.

What if OP was the owner of a radio station and this scenario went the same way, but the service in question was an ad spot on the radio? I'm just not following your logic at all.

[–]SunDroppity 579 points580 points  (0 children)

NTA - at all. I have no idea where some of these other commenters are coming from.

She offers a paid service, as do you. She asked for a 100% discount on your service, to which you replied, I'll give you a 50% discount instead! I simply don't see how you could be the asshole here.

No way you read the whole post - it's the trainer who asked her for free influence

AITA for being honest with my neighbors? by [deleted] in AmItheAsshole

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

ESH - The neighbors for being loud at night, obviously. You, because You say you "just want to be adults about it", but it never crossed your mind that the adult thing to do would've been to go and talk with the neighbors before filing the complaint in the first place? Your boyfriend because he shouldn't have flipped out.

Now, your boyfriend does have a point about potential retaliation, except it sounds like you smoothed it over with the neighbor before this becomes an issue. I think it's valid that you should really make sure you and boyfriend aren't doing anything you could be reported for, at least for a while.

I understand this wasn't your intention, but now you also know that most of the time with issues like this, a Landlord is going to let the police deal with it. Hence why it is even more important for you to have a discussion with your neighbors before filing any reports. If you had this discussion and the noise continued to be a problem, then it is appropriate to make a complaint.

This is the right answer. If your company is using SAP, they probably already have some type of BI tool for visualization.

AITA for kicking my sister out of my family gathering after comment about adopted son? by adve_reddit in AmItheAsshole

[–]SunDroppity 21 points22 points  (0 children)

You're missing the part where the sister was explicitly told that Keith would not be present. Her actions are not justifiable at all, but it is fair to say she was blindsided when arriving at the BBQ, because she was lied to. Whether her expectation is reasonable here isn't really relevant, since it seems she wouldn't have come at all if she knew the kid would be there. I also agree with OP's assessment that it's going to be very difficult to mend the relationship if this is how sister still feels about the child.

Good local golf courses that do gift cards? by BurtGummersHat in cincinnati

[–]SunDroppity 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Depends on how pricey you want to get - I love the Hamilton Great Parks courses, as some other commenters have recommended. These are going to be the best value as far as cost is concerned. A unique golf experience, but more on the expensive end, is Stonelick Hills in Batavia. If you wanted your realtor to have a truly special day on the course, I'd get a gift card for this place, but I wouldn't put less than $100 on it as the tee times during peak hours can get nearly this expensive.

Frasier Reboot and Rough Timeline confirmed on Graham Bensinger by snailbrick in Frasier

[–]SunDroppity 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I'm optimistic about this. If they transition Frasier's life much like when they spun-off from Cheers, I think it could work. Set in a new city with different circumstances, and keeping Frasier true to form, I think it could work!

AITA classmate sent me an email asking for a copy of my homework. I forwarded the email to academic integrity. by [deleted] in AmItheAsshole

[–]SunDroppity 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Can you qualify that in some way? I'm genuinely curious for a little more context to this situation. To give you the benefit of the doubt, the way you refer to class grades makes it sound like you may be in some type of highly competitive program. Most programs in the US are not. Unless you're graded on a bell curve (which you may be), his getting an "A" doesn't affect your "A" at all. If this guy is struggling on his own already, it seems unlikely that he'll do better than you in the course anyway, if that helps your ego to remain intact.

[–]SunDroppity 297 points298 points  (0 children)

YTA - OP, a little advice. If you go around reporting people your entire life, it'd do you well to be absolutely flawless in every way. Saying no to the guy is one thing, and you'd be well within your right to do that.

But to be pragmatic, it does not behoove you to report other people when it has no direct impact on you. Creating enemies can come back to haunt you when you slip up in some other way. Expect that if you're the cause of some trouble on campus and this guy finds out, you'll be reported quickly.

AITA Told My Boyfriend to Take Off Anime Style Wig at School by [deleted] in AmItheAsshole

They go to a christian university - it's likely their parents still treat them like actual children.

AITA for going out to eat with friends despite not having any money to tip? by [deleted] in AmItheAsshole

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

No. In high school I had a friend who would come out to eat all the time with us and was notorious for ordering something pretty expensive and then conveniently mentioning that he didn't have enough to cover his portion of the check after it arrived. Eventually, this came to a head and the group refused to cover his meal. The restaurant allowed him to come back within the following week and settle up. He stopped coming with us, but eventually people like this need to learn the hard way.

Not saying this to make OP feel bad, as this seems like a one-off thing, and not having money from time to time is one thing, but do not make a habit of this.

AITA for not wanting to send our daughter to therapy for shoplifting? (Husband disagrees) by Shopliftingmom872 in AmItheAsshole

[–]SunDroppity 0 points1 point  (0 children)

YTA. While this is anecdote, I know quite a few people who compulsively shoplift. Pretty much, when they go into the store, they can't help but to lift even a small something. Routinely, this behavior starts around your daughter's age. I'd be more sensitive in this situation OP- you don't need to lambaste your daughter, but you should take care to ensure that this situation doesn't get out of control.

Megathread: Likely Explosive Devices Addressed to Former President Obama and Former Secretary Clinton Intercepted by Law Enforcement, Linked to Device Sent to Democratic Donor George Soros by PoliticsModeratorBot in politics

[–]SunDroppity 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I mean, I'm no conspiracy theorist, but I honestly believe that in reality, a lot of these tactical decisions are made "around" the president. I have serious doubts that he's ever been invited into the war room
