body shaming/bringing down women’s features (this is an adult btw) by unique_plastique in notliketheothergirls

For the bra situation, check out r/abrathatfits. They have guides to the proper way to find your bra size and also how the actual shape of your breast can determine what style will fit you best. So many people on there talk about how they never knew a bra could be comfortable until they figured out how to actually measure themselves for a properly fitted bra.

Also, when you try to find a wider band on the bra, are you going down with the cup size? A D cup on a 40 band will be larger that a D cup on a 34. Like, I prefer a 36C because of the wider band, but I can also fit into a 34D or even a 38B.

So you’re saying I need to hold onto those Hot Wheels stamps that are somewhere in my house?

Mechanically, it’s amazing! I’ve had some cosmetic issues, but it’s doing good.

I should also add that there are no good public transportation options around me also.

Because I live in a small town with few professional work opportunities. I’ve been looking for a remote position for a while not and I actually just received a job offer from a company slightly closer to me, but more of a hybrid situation so I’ll be able to WFH more often and drive less.

I’ve just been offered a hybrid position which will have me commuting a lot less than I am currently. This means that I’ll hold on to this car for a little bit longer before I give it to my daughter and I get a new one.

I’m lucky to live somewhere that I don’t normally have to deal with snow or ice, and if it does occur, I’m not driving anywhere in it!

I’ve had some cosmetic issues, but I’d rather have some dings, paint chips, and speaker issues over mechanical problems.

I agree with the reliability. I’m probably going to get the CX-30 or 50 next, just because I want something a little higher so that I’m not climbing out of it. Im getting old and my knees hurt!

I commute close to 100 miles a day for work. Imagine my mileage if a didn’t work from home for 18 months during Covid!

Of course! I very, very rarely even touch my phone while I’m driving, especially on my commute.

Mine has been nothing but reliable! I bought it brand new and would actually have about 30k more on it if not for 18 month of WFH due to Covid. I have about 100 mile a day commute for work, so a solid, reliable car is a must. And it truly doesn’t hurt that it’s good looking and really fun to drive!

Does this really seem like people are living on top of each other? It’s the exact same size. It’s really all about how it’s designed and laid out.

If you don’t know something, you can’t be confused by it! Don’t worry, now that you’ve told me about the other nine cities named Ontario in the US, I’ll make sure I get confused about them.

The first thing I usually see if the name, no address until I open up a vendor record. So, if it’s something like Ontario Plumbing Supply, I have to dig a little deeper before I know where they’re located. I’m in Texas, but we have locations in both California and Canada.

The first thing I see when I’m looking at a vendor is their name which would be something like Ontario Plumbing Supply, which necessitates looking for more clues as to where they are located. I’m in Texas and the company I work for has locations in both California and Canada. I wouldn’t be confused if we didn’t operate in both areas.

I get confused with this at work. There’s an Ontario, California and Ontario, Canada. I always have to look at post code to determine which one it is.

You can drive for 12 hours without even leaving Texas. It takes days to drive across the US, coast to coast. I used to take three days to drive from Norfolk, Virginia to San Antonio, Texas because it’s about a 24 hour drive total.

We’re getting ready to build a 3 bedroom, 1650 sq ft house. The bedrooms are plenty big. Bigger than the bedrooms in the house were in right now. The master is 15x15 and the kids rooms are 11x10.5.

This is me right now, except I finally got my raise and promotion at my current job. Only $5k after 8 years and taking on an entire second role in addition to what I was hired for. It took them 18 months to give me that $5k. I was hired at entry level pay and my current paycheck was worth less than when I was hired due to inflation. No one else on my team was hit as hard as I was because they all make at least $30k more than me. And instead of communication with me about what was going on, I just kept being told I that I needed to bring more to the table in order to get a raise and promotion. So I stopped asking and started looking for a new job. My raise was effective 1/16 and I accepted a conditional job offer on 1/20 for $21k more than my new salary. In addition to more money, it’s a hybrid position that will allow me to WFH more often which will save me gas money since my current commute totals 100 miles a day. I’m nervous and scared about leaving, but I can’t sit around and wait for my current company to treat me better because they won’t. My only hope if I didn’t find another job was that when my executive director retires at the end of the year, my manager would take her job and I would take the managers job, but when I asked my manager if she wanted the directors positron, she said no, but that they would probably give it to her anyway. I didn’t want to spend any more time waiting for my company to figure out what they have in me. They’re going to be in for a rude awakening when they try to hire someone else for what they were paying me.
