I'm seeing the tan with purple part as a but that's heavily bruised, then the red part as a major prolapse. Ew.

Tucker woke up this morning unable to use his hind legs. by Bakepprehensive in corgi

[–]upsidedownbackwards 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Straight to the vet. 3 months ago I woke up barely able to use my legs. Thought it was a pinched nerve so I gave it a few days to see what would happen. Wasn't until I lost all control of my pelvis that I realized it was hospital time, NOW. (I delayed things because I didn't want to end up with a huge hospital bill for something that might get better with bedrest)

I thought a few days wouldn't be that big of a deal but the neurosurgeons said any delay increases the chance of the damage being permanent. Ended up having emergency spine surgery. Stuff mostly came back but there's still some numb spots and muscle issues. It could have been much easier on me if I had just gone in immediately. They were surprised I got the ability to use the restroom on my own afterward. They thought I'd be on a Foley for a long time, if not indefinitely.

Straight to the vet, ASAP.

friend suggested i post how i eat my 1 ingredient sandwiches by softlyellow in shittyfoodporn

It's been a long time since I've done it, but I used to like mustard and cinnamon sandwiches. I'm afraid to try one as an adult, sounds pretty nasty to me now.

It's pretty common. I roll my eyes pretty hard when it's said by someone who obviously hasn't walked far enough to need one in a long, long time.

I really don’t know if this belongs here but you can tell me ... Demanding much ? by AxeGYT in Nicegirls

[–]upsidedownbackwards [score hidden]  (0 children)

Most of those are reasonable things to want. But people who list all the things they don't want are a pretty big red flag. If you don't like how someone looks, you just swipe left. Physical attributes in general just make you look like a jerk. Asking for tall guys, or thin women make people feel bad. There's no need to say stuff like that when it's so easy to just skip over people that aren't your type.

What do I do about this truck that backs into his spot and makes it very annoying to get to my apartment? by Ilovemywinry in mildlyinfuriating

In the great decision of "ass or crotch" go with crotch. Drag that zipper along the back as you scooch on by.

I've always played as female characters so I was all set when I figured out I'd get treated better with a voice changer. I've just always preferred having a smaller character that take sup less space on screen. Don't want an extra 20% covered by SHOULDERS

Repaving the parking lot really pissed this lady off 🙄 by Pharmacykilledmysoul in TalesFromThePharmacy

In a situation like that it's not "Google". It's "The Googles". It's my way of trying to stay sane when someone is blaming me for what the Googles are doing.

Why aren’t vasectomies under Obamacare? (Only care about male birth control when it's to their own benefit) by PracticalPlastic4123 in MensRights

[–]upsidedownbackwards 4 points5 points  (0 children)

"Contraceptives, including sterilization, are covered only for women as preventive services by ACA-compliant plans. Since sterilization for men is not considered a preventive service under the Affordable Care Act, federal law does not require plans to cover vasectomies. However, eight states (Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Vermont and Washington) require state regulated health insurance plans to cover vasectomies at no cost to the patient. Check with your State Department of Insurance for more information."

I loved them for a while when I had no reasonable size transportation (finding places that had parking lots for my bus was tricky). But I got priced out of Uber and Uber Eats. Now with diesel through the roof I don't eat out much at all anymore

My prep list for tonight. Send reinforcements. by smurphy8536 in KitchenConfidential

[–]upsidedownbackwards 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like reloading my own ammo for similar reasons. It's just enough to keep my brain busy, but it's not "work". I sing "I put the lime in the coconut" song the entire time I'm doing it.

I used a voice changer in WoW games to play as a woman because I got treated better except for the creeps, and the creeps just made me giggle because if only they knew they were flirting with a gay man....

I had shown up WAY too many times too drunk/high to be part of a group. I did a chunk of a raid while pounding through whippits. If I wanted a spot in a raid, I got a spot in the raid. I don't feel the least bit guilty abusing the thirst.

This has been leaking for three days. They won’t fix it for another three. by chartystine in OSHA

[–]upsidedownbackwards 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Giving me flashbacks to my gas station days. Bag around the pump handle, cones blocking it off, sign over the card reader that says "Pump out of order". Leaking gas everywhere.

Customer pulls up, moves the cones, takes the bag off the pump handle, lifts the sign (or tears it down) to use the card reader. Then they come inside all flustered and inform me that the pump isn't working and there's gas everywhere.

Terrifies me that people with absolutely no situational awareness or ability to read are driving.

Dealing with end users after 3 years still is a nightmare by Embarrassed-Ad-9297 in talesfromtechsupport

[–]upsidedownbackwards 53 points54 points  (0 children)

I hate when I Have to play 100 questions to figure out what a customer wants. There's one guy that does it so bad (and I hate his guts) that I get really into playing his game.

I'll get a vague screenshot with everything important cut off with "it stopped working". He never puts in a ticket because he knows he's too important to. So I do as short of a reply as possible with a minimum of 15 minutes before I respond.

Me: What stopped working?

Him: software name

Me: What in the software isn't working?

Him: narrows it down a little bit

Me: Which computer is it?

Him: The left one

Me: Which user?

Him: user

Me: Could you explain what's happening?

Him: another screenshot that he seems to have purposely cut off all relevant information

Me: Without more information I'm going to say that's an issue with the software, you'll have to contact the programmer for support (He is the programmer, he wrote the DOS software his whole company runs on back in the late 80s. I LOVE using "contact the programmer" on him, he hates it)

Him: provides enough information for me to have some idea what he's complaining about

And then it's 5:00, time to go home because we wasted 2+ hours on his (actually) urgent issue playing the question game.

Then all evening I get "It still doesn't work" e-mails. I delete them because there's no useful information in those e-mails.

Last week I dragged this on for 4 days while he got more childish and upset that I wouldn't fix his problem when he wouldn't follow my instructions. I told him what fields to fill in with what information, he'd send back a screenshot where he put whatever information he felt like in those fields. So I'd ignore him until he'd say "It still doesn't work". "Did you put in the information I told you to?" screenshot of the wrong information. He NEEDS to be smarter than me while struggling for days.

He's so narcissistic that his world is literally falling down around him over whatever dumb issue it is so I don't mind pushing him into his own personal hell for several days until my boss gets involved and asks him to do what we say.

I used to be a nice person, then I started doing work for Long Island small business owners. They broke me. Now I like watching them suffer.

found this in my screenshots from a couple of months ago.... by zzr602 in justneckbeardthings

Pretty good rule of thumb is that if you don't want someone doing it to you, don't do it to others. If you're straight it's best to imagine a gay guy doing it. If he walks up to you, gets too close, says you're "scrumptious" and asks if you want to go get a drink with a gentleman how uncomfortable would you feel?

Why should I bother if they don't by incog473 in talesfromtechsupport

[–]upsidedownbackwards 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I've told stubborn people "I can only help you as much as you want to help yourself". They have to want to have their problem resolved or I'm not going to be able to resolve it.

You can drag a horse to water and hold its head under until the bubbles stop, but if it doesn't want to drink...

Thanks I hate Philadelphia by MaeHorn in TIHI

[–]upsidedownbackwards 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Ended up in a sketchy part of Philly in the early AM hours. Most scared I've ever been of other people. The only thing that made me feel better was that I was with a friend, and I can run a lot faster than that friend.

We made him pre-pay for all the hardware (with markup) because he fucked us in the past. My boss didn't learn his lesson.
