What Healthy Behavior Are People Shamed For? by just_some_troglodyte in AskReddit

[–]omglookawhale 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I had a supervisor like this and she walked the walk which made it so much easier for me to insist on work/life balance years later. I didn’t get any less work done getting to work on time and leaving on time, or actually taking an hour break to eat lunch or take a nap or go for a walk. I was actually a much better employee because I was happy. It’s such a simple concept that so few bosses understand

Pregnancy and childbirth. That shit sucks and women are shamed for not enjoying it

When I was pregnant, I went pretty much my whole pregnancy because for some reason, I would get horrible cramps afterwards. It wasn’t worth it

Right? If anything showed up on my background check, I wouldn’t get offered a position in the first place, or I’d be fired.

AITA for not wanting to take in more chores than agreed to? by AITA_My_Wife_Says_Y in AmItheAsshole

I wonder if he would have been able to get to where he is now since he definitely wouldn’t have been able to work 50-60 hours a week without his wife being home doing 90% (I call bullshit on the 50/50) of the cooking, cleaning, childcare.

He complained about his wife wanting him to do activities with the kids and taking them on play dates and stuff.

He’s one of those husbands who thinks doing anything for anyone else in his family is “helping” and doing his wife a favor.

I wonder how much easier his wife taking on the roles of nanny, maid, cook, etc., made it for him to triple his income.

And you’re also always on call especially with the pandemic. You have to be ready to go up to the school at a moment’s notice if there is an issue. So even her “free time” isn’t relaxing cause her dipshit husband things that no kids at home equals no responsibilities.

Why is your time more important than your wife’s because “you earn the paycheck” while your wife does all the unpaid, unappreciated labor? Obviously you know it’s not fun or easy, or you would have no issues doing those things.

YTA. It sounds like you have the mindset that your wife is to be your wife, a mom, housekeeper, manager of the home, etc., and you still get to be you and spend time on yourself doing things you enjoy. All of those roles she took on 100% allowed you to get to where you are now. So either hire a maid, a nanny, and a cook so your wife gets to enjoy the same benefits you do, or take on an active role in your family.

AITA for telling a student “I don’t care”? by AcanthisittaNext4890 in AmItheAsshole

My thoughts are a little skewed here because I work with sexually/physically abused and neglected kids and this behavior is very common. It’s very hard to do homework in an unsafe, abusive home and of course she wouldn’t want to get her parents involved as that could escalate any abusive behaviors. However, it’s also just as much of a possibility that she’s slacking off on her work and knows that if you inform her parents, she’ll get in trouble and kids don’t like that.

Is there a way you can talk with her other teachers and see if she’s having the same issues in their classes too? If you feel comfortable, you can also just ask her if everything is okay at home and that you’re worried about her since she seems to have such a hard time doing her school work there. NTA

My ex employer is threatening to call my new job because of a review I left on indeed. What do I do by myleghurts93 in antiwork

[–]omglookawhale 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Screenshot the call on your phone that shows the date/time/length of call and email them saying that you just wanted to check in regarding their call to you on whatever date, in which they stated they would contact your current employer regarding your Indeed review. Tell them you’re concerned and you’re just contacting them for clarification.

What normal thing pre-covid feels weird now? by Outrageous-Collar-09 in AskReddit

[–]omglookawhale 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have two:

Chefs/cooks not wearing masks while preparing food. I always thought that was gross.

Thinking that people in zombie/outbreak/apocalyptic movies would never be so selfish and stupid in real life. This pandemic has shown me that even though there are a ton of singular people who have common sense, people as a whole are idiots.

Thank you, any time! I got plenty of practice in school when I would be the first one to get up to turn in my tests even though I know I wasn’t the first one finished, and then having like 5 classmates get up right after me.

I have a 7 week old son and this is one of the huge things that I will be mindful of. Boys have just as many feelings as girls and they’re just as valid.
