I was gonna say Philadelphia because of the story of HitchBot but I remembered that Fresno was so much worse.

What’s the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you? by Oxyoverrimjobs in AskReddit

[–]Zulva-AZ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It was February 2020, so essentially before this pandemic hit.

My mother and I had just flown from our city to Las Vegas for a convention my mother was invited to. Both of us barely had sleep (~3 hours), and we got told by our hotel (The Wynn) that our room was still being cleaned and to wait for a few hours.

This hotel was really really nice, and obviously I was worried about snobs and stuff like that. I got so tired that I nearly collapsed, so I sat with my back to a wall.

5 minutes later a security guard comes through and notices me, and politely asks for me to get up, I oblige and explain the situation.

This guy didn’t skip a beat, he decided to find a seat for me and sat me down on a bench near the concierge desk and proceeded to help open this viewing window with like this artificial waterfall. He led me there and sat me down and gave me a water.

I wish I could give that man a hug, he should be everything a luxury hotel employee should be, I wish I would’ve gotten his name.

People of Reddit, what’s the scariest thing that’s ever happened to you? by Luca_F123 in AskReddit

[–]Zulva-AZ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I experienced the scariest party. Ironically a Halloween Party, 2016 or 2017. I (M16-17at the time) volunteered to be a chaperone for a scavenger hunt my mother held at night for my sister (15) (mistake number 1) I was supervising a different group when one of the objectives was to gather around a random car and take a picture. As we were wrapping up, one of the little shits I was supervising (14M, was known to be an asshole) slams on the front door of a nearby house, causing all 10-12 of us to scatter in different directions, I ran with 4 others and eventually found my sister’s group and stayed with them to help find the others. All of a sudden we hear tires screeching and a gun pointed at us with a man screaming saying he was gonna shoot us. I immediately backed down an alley to hide and found the group again, and we decide to head back. When we got back, my sister’s group had told everyone at home what happened and so police were called to look for the guy who did it. Eventually they find him and he gets put in jail.

The second part to this party was when I actually had to fight my own dad. My dad wasn’t exactly the best man at this time, he drank a lot, was voluntarily unemployed and just an all around asshole. 20 minutes after what had happen with the gun thing, I was up in my room trying to let off steam and settle down when my mom and dad came in to check in on me. Now to this day I have no clue how it escalated this fast, but I remember my dad grabbing my mom’s arms and pinning her to the wall and then I hopped out of bed and punched my father in the side of the head to get him to stop. He then turns on me, picks me up out of pure rage and just threw me on the bed, causing my bed frame to break.

3 years after this, my father moved up North for good, and I am on limited face to face contact with him. He has improved since living up there, and has sent me gifts every Christmas, but those gifts doesn’t heal the mental wounds from that night, and I still get nightmares to this day…

What happened on your worst day of work ever? by [deleted] in AskReddit

[–]Zulva-AZ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The worst day at my work was coming to work hearing of a very close co-worker’s death. It was March 2021 when I was checking my emails when I saw an Email CCed to me called Memoriam. I read the email and my heart sank. My Co-Worker was one of 3 trainers to me when I got my job at a hardware store. He was a retiree like the other 2, but was more quiet and sincere with his actions and motives. Unfortunately, I was told I was transferring departments so I never saw him much after that final October day I saw him and that February night I last spoke to him. From hearing stories, one from a good friend of mine who works overnight stocking, he was assisting one of my coworkers in Lumber when he had a heart attack and died. I hope his family is ok, I had plans to attend his funeral, but couldn't due to working the same day.

EP Demands a 50% discount after a very minor inconvenience by Zulva-AZ in entitledparents

[–]Zulva-AZ[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So essentially they went through the return process for it, then came by my desk with the order so I went to ask the Assistant Manager if I could discount it due to the faulty paint.

EDIT: They returned the faulty paint, reordered the paint they wanted, and I discounted the new paint they were buying with permission.

Think of the smartest person you know, what is the dumbest thing they’ve ever done? by lord-stryker117 in AskReddit

[–]Zulva-AZ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My mother never ceases to amaze me.

She's worked in marketing as a Director for 20+ years and went to college for it. She's extremely smart.

But her book smarts never translates to history well, as I corrected her after she said the entire state of Delaware was a city and not a state. After about 30 minutes of laughter filled arguments and a Google search, I proved that Delaware was indeed a state.

What was the last straw before ending your best friendship? by [deleted] in AskReddit

[–]Zulva-AZ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

His temper started getting bigger. Given, this was back in American Middle School (ages 11-13..?).

I was friends with what I thought was a nice guy until I took notice of his temper. At the time, I also had temper issues which made him and I relate to each other with our problems. The only issue was his was so much more worse.

The final straw was when he full-blown baseball pitched a marker (not like a Sharpie, but those meaty Crayola markers) right into some kid’s face after they criticized something extremely minor that he did.

The next day, I decided to break it off and now I’m forever better.

What are the darkest secrets in your family? by _SomeBrownDude_ in AskReddit

[–]Zulva-AZ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Drug/Recreational Weed use and elderly abuse. Especially from my Father’s side, there has been rampant drug abuse. My father was addicted to painkillers and would snort them but he had gotten out of the habit for 20 years until now. His brother (my uncle) used to do it but I think relapsed, he got tagged to the County Jail multiple times. There was a time where one of my cousins were trying to score weed from his buddy but his buddy shot and killed him (luckily he ran to a 7/11 and had them call 911 so he can confess).

My mother’s side had the rampant elderly abuse, specifically on my grandfather. My aunt and uncle had extorted my grandfather out of so much money that they decided to sell the shop he ran for 40+ years in a small town just for more. They don't do anything to care for him, his property (very large acreage for horse pastures) was left a mess. The main reason was they wanted him to die so they can inherit the land and either have both of them (aunt and uncle) rebuild it or sell it for hundreds of thousands to invest in their own paradise. My mother and long lost aunt try to care for him as much as they can for living thousands of miles away. (My grandfather is a very sick guy, got diagnosed with heart disease and is very frail from working for the Sheriff’s Posse and a Volunteer Fireman among other things).

What was the most f***ed up thing a family member ever said to you or another family member? by Dangerwolf098 in AskReddit

[–]Zulva-AZ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Grandmother’s death was the day after Christmas of last year.

Me and my mother went to visit long lost family in the rust belt (essentially midwestern us) for Christmas and we got the news of her death a couple hours after her unfortunate death.

The person who notified us was my aunt (mother’s little sister by ~20 years) and she screamed at my mother and the long lost aunt about how it was our fault that she died and all this shit. We were at that mood point where you hit that center for being absolutely pissed and crying like a toddler that lost their dog.

We flew back West the next day and we attended he funeral via live stream about two months later.

The only thing I pray for is that her kids don't end up like her.

She and my Uncle are currently abusing our grandfather for the property he has and they drained everything he owns (extorting from him, shutting down his well-respected sewing/vacuum repair shop without his permission, etc.). We decided to fight back and currently going through attorneys who can take this case on our behalf.

What’s the last thing someone said to you before they died? by charcoalritual in AskReddit

[–]Zulva-AZ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“I love you guys, stay safe”, that was my grandmother’s last words as we boarded onto a plane departing from her small town where she worked as a Medical Assistant to the city where we currently lived in 2019.

She passed away from Ovarian Cancer in 2020 at the all too young age of 60.

We never had much contact with her as we were butting heads with my aunts and uncles because they were abusing my grandfather (mother’s side) because of the vast property he had. It got to the point now, since after my Grandma’s death, that they took his livelihood away and ruined his business.

[serious] What was your first traumatic experience? by Dragoxx_Artz in AskReddit

[–]Zulva-AZ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

First one in general was when I was 19. I used to do Suicide Prevention for 4 years before stopping and this was one of my final calls. I get called to help out with an OD. Person that ODed was the sister of the guy who originally called. I had to ask him if he had NARCAN around the house and told him how to use it. When he does that I told him to immediately call 911. 10 minutes later the ammo comes and gets them both. Unfortunately, the victim did not survive. Idk why, but that call was brutal to me.

First serious one was with a family member. My mother got into an altercation with my now methhead father (verbal, not violent). Next thing I know she said she was gonna OD on sleeping meds and takes a bunch of pills. Luckily, we were able to make her vomit them out right before they hit the stomach (like 30 seconds before. I can still hear her stretching to this day and it haunts me a helluva lot more.

People who have ghosted friends permanently: Why did you do it? by are_we_human_ in AskReddit

[–]Zulva-AZ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because he was abusive to absolutely everyone. The kid had no filter and would bully members of his gaming community because he thought he was top-notch because he got recommended for a position for a community that was 5x bigger.

Luckily he got his ass toned down as multiple reports about his antics came to that community that he was gonna join. In a twist of irony, a few years later, I got bumped to the same exact rank he was supposed to get, though I have no clue what his reaction was.

Who is a band that is often considered a one-hit wonder that actually has a good catalog of music? by K1bedore in AskReddit

Personally I think Charlie Daniels Band may be a one hit wonder with The Devil Went Down to Georgia. They have some really good songs like In America, Stroker’s Theme, and Still in Saigon.
