NTA of course because itís their kid, but just wondering: Is this a common thing?

Just thinking of my friends and family who had kids (pre-Covid) and it felt like theyíd invite literally everyone to come see how great and cute their new baby is. Either immediately at the hospital or shortly after leaving, never mind for two months afterwards.

I think the justification of ďweíll be tired and trying to figure poo poo outĒ sounds pretty good, just never really heard of this before.

When I had my kids we were just like, 'open er up, come on over' but at the same time one of my coworkers said that in her country it was traditional to keep everyone from seeing the baby for like 40 days. Parents can do what they want, it's their kid.

What? For one, not sure I've seen a retail manager wear the look. For two, a dress shirt with khakis is pretty much the day-to-day wear of any adult with a normal job. Aside from engineers who are cooler than us.

I agree with you that pleated pants are cringe though.

I actually have a pair of pleated khaki overalls that I use when I want to infiltrate heterosexual spaces. I wear them with Vibrams worn inside a pair of Crocs. Nobody has ever questioned my heterosexuality in this getup.

Really? I'd figure one of the fun parts of being a gay man is you can wear frumpy getups while having everyone think it's a bold fashion statement.

I'm [29f] tired of my boyfriend [33m] calling me an "evil, untrustworthy," woman.

quote:

I've been with my boyfriend for two months. We were committed right away. He came over and spent time with my family and told me he wanted a serious relationship right away.

He was very sweet, charming, has a great job and seemed like 10/10. Great guy.

However, I found out he was talking to an ex when a notification popped up on his phone. It became a really long, drawn out argument with lots of tears. I thought we had cleared it up when his ex texted him again the next week. He deleted the whole chat before I could see it. Super shady.

I took a step back and told my boyfriend to mail me my things and that I need some time to think. We have been talking every day to work things out. This is when the crazy starting coming out. He has some outlandish complaints.

1- He tells me I am an evil, untrustworthy woman who "rips through men." (because I texted him asking to mail my stuff back because I was pissed.)

2- He tells me he had accepted me and all my problems, even though I am "his little Lindsay Lohan." (Referencing the fact that I am now sober?)

3- Because I had my Linkedin profile hidden, he told me this was also a sign of me being deeply untrustworthy.

He accused me of "gathering information," about him to really hurt him.

He told me I have to show that I am a changed woman, that I can't fake it, and I have to be prepared to do the deep work to get there.

Because I left him and met a girlfriend for a beer one afternoon, he says this is "proof," that I am being shady. He said this girlfriend probably influenced my decision to notice the notification on his phone and break up with him..

When I mention the fact he had texted his ex he says "oh it wasn't a big deal," and brushes it off completely. I'm at a total loss what to do, besides just cut contact.

TL;DR boyfriend says I'm deeply troubled/untrustworthy.

He says something about making more than 2, so he's selling them for 5 bucks a pop, which is I guess roughly market price if they have more than a single slice of bologna in them.

I think the real deal breaker for khaki boy is what he does with the button up shirt. If its a dress shirt and he tucks it he definitely is going for the retail manager look. The only worse option is if he buys those Untuckit shirts. Absolute worst case scenario: Untuckit + pleated khakis.

I actually have a pair of pleated khaki overalls that I use when I want to infiltrate heterosexual spaces. I wear them with Vibrams worn inside a pair of Crocs. Nobody has ever questioned my heterosexuality in this getup.

Untuckit shirt + pleated khakis and a pair of black rockports is what they wear in the next pod people remake.

That sounds like a much better getup than my carhartts, denim work shirt, red wings, and curved brim baseball cap with a crying eagle on a camouflage background.

I stopped wearing jeans around 5 years ago because I got too fat for them and already wasted my new clothes budget and slacks and chinos. When I had a little more money to spare, it had been so long I didn't miss them.

I've lost like 20 pounds since then, so my old pairs might fit again.

I'm pretty fat and had thought for a while jeans were out of consideration, but I just needed to find some that fit better and change how I wore them. I put them an inch or two above my navel when standing and if I need to sit in a chair I'll pull the waistline under my stomach and then readjust when standing, like buttoning and unbuttoning a jacket. They make tapered leg jeans in very large sizes which was a real game changer for me, since I'd thought the legs needed to be as big as the thigh all the way down which makes your torso look short. Check out the selection of jeans at DXL, they're where I buy most of my clothes.

Everett False posted:

I think depending on your anatomy (I've heard it given as a male/female dichotomy but eh), it's possible for your waist to be a significantly different size depending on whether you're sitting or standing. So if you wear your jeans at your waist, that can make them pretty uncomfortable compared to garments with a greater stretch. The sturdiness of denim means they tend to dig in more painfully than pants made of a thinner fabric even without stretch.

I'm a big fan of dresses, but that's because I'm lazy and don't like having to match things.
100% this. You can also buy jeans with 2-3% spandex in them. You don't need to go all the way to jeggings if you don't want to.

oh jay posted:

Maybe they've got a big head and need the buttons. The alternative is henleys and that's an entirely different life decision you have to meditate on.

Henleys are indeed good for that purpose. They are great for larger guys as well. I love the opportunity to wear them during the winter with an open waxed cotton jacket or puffer and looking like an LL Bean model or the non-threatening lead in a hallmark movie. Have they become some kind of dogwhistle for something I haven't heard about? Or are they regarded as underwear in the north and not appropriate to wear out?

AITA for reporting a doordash driver for asking me for more money on top of the tip I gave?

quote:

Hey everyone, this happened last week and I'm still really torn about it. Last week, right before my doordash driver pulled up to my house she asked if she could have more money on top of the 25% tip I gave her. She said there was no way for her to cash out the money she made on doordash same day and would need to wait until the next day to receive her funds. A quick google by my husband found out that this was a lie and that door dash allows it's drivers to cash out once per day. I respectfully declined saying that I had no cash, and once my food was dropped off I reported her to doordash. Something about a stranger asking me for money and knowing where I live didn't sit right with me. To add insult to injury, she pulled up in a new looking BMW SUV. I just feel bad because I know what it's like to be on the struggle bus. For a long time it was pretty common for me to have a negative balance more often than a positive one in my bank account. I don't want to be the reason she loses her job, but I also hate being put into situations like this. So, AITA?

TLDR: food delivery driver asked me for an additional cash tip on top of the tip I already gave through the app. I reported her and have a lot of mixed feelings about the situation.

WIBTA if I end a friendship over a scone?

quote:

TLDR: my friend accused me of messing with his scone. I did not. He calls me a liar and wonít let it go.

I apologize for how long this is. It is VERY dumb.

My (36F) friend (of 10+ years) weíll call Jonah (34M) got dumped by his partner that he was living with. They gave him only a day to move out, assuming Jonah would go live with his religious nut of a mother. After literally talking him off a ledge, I offer to come pick him up (driving out of state and back) and let him stay at my place for the weekend while he gets his head on straight.

Jonah spends the weekend complaining about his ex and the state his life is in. I show him empathy and encourage him to seek therapy to deal with his onslaught of emotions. I tell him about my time in therapy for my binge eating disorder. This will be important later. He agrees to seek help and even has a nice long call with a therapist who validates his feelings.

Sunday comes and Jonah heads to the corner cafť for breakfast. He comes back to my place with a box of assorted pastries including a mixed berry scone. He opens it up in my kitchen, checks the merchandise, and places it back in the bag. He then goes to change in my bedroom while I eat my own food in the kitchen. Jonah comes back and checks his pastry box once more, only to find the scone broken into three pieces.

Glancing at the scone in question, I see that there is a large strawberry on one piece right where the break is and the dough was likely very thin in the center surrounding it. I tell him as much as he tries, unsuccessfully, to put the pieces back together. He then asked me if I messed with his scone while he was out of the room. I tell him no and say that it probably broke when he put the box back in the bag. He claims that there is a chunk missing from the center and it was obviously tampered with. Jonah goes on to say that he is very good at putting things back together but these pieces donít fit so I must have messed with his food. Again I tell him I did no such thing but would be happy to walk to the cafť and get him another scone. He says he doesnít believe me. I ask if he is calling me a liar to which he replies that he highly doubts I am telling the truth because the scone breaking makes no ďscientificĒ sense. I respond by saying something along the lines of ďwhat makes more sense, a scone being crumbly or your good friend messing with it and lying about it.Ē

He says to forget about it and asks me to drive him home. I oblige.

On the drive back, he clearly hasnít let this go. I state my case again, he states his. We are at an impasse. He then says that he can accept that I didnít mess with his food ďfor the sake of our friendship.Ē The subject is dropped.

Then, this morning, we have the following conversation via text:

Jonah: Too bad we didnít get to watch that movie on Sunday.

Me: I was quite upset

Jonah: Ok Jonah: You deal with that

Me: I have, wrote out my feelings and trying to release any lingering sadness

Jonah: I hope that works for you

Me: Usually does. Itís a good habit for me. Iíll write things out then go over it in therapy

Jonah: So youíre gonna tell your therapist that I was bugging even though I didnít go on a roller coaster with that bag of pastries lol. And it didnít make physical sense according to like science and poo poo lol

Me: Iím gonna deal with my hurt feelings over being called a liar in a situation where I wasnít lying. Brought up a lot of feelings about my last relationship that I need to process.

Jonah: Iíve gotten those items many times also and thatís the first time that happened so it seems weird Jonah: Call it what you want Jonah: The one that I had the day before didnít magically break apart into pieces that canít be put back together lol

Me: I thought you were over this. I donít see the need to rehash something that we canít agree on.

Jonah: I just want to tell you that I am a person who can put almost anything back together. If you give me all of the pieces Jonah: I donít feel like all of the prices are being given here

Me: I understand and validate your position. I, however, know that I am not lying.

Jonah: Ok. So this has nothing to do with the things that youíve been seeking help for? Jonah: I feel like thereís something that youíre not willing to tell me

Me: Are you implying that my eating disorder made me take a piece of your scone? Me: Stealing food is not something I have ever done. I binge eat. That means I consume large amounts of food in one sitting. I donít pick at the center of another personís pastry and leave the rest. I buy four of my own and eat them all. Me: My eating disorder leads me to purchase large amounts of food for my own consumption. It does not push me to eat the food off other peopleís plates or anything like that.

He has not replied.

This is probably the dumbest thing two adults in their 30s could fight over. Iím at the point of ending the friendship because he trusts his own scone assembling skills more than he trusts me. I feel like itís up to him to either believe me or let it go. He seems unwilling to do either.

Would I be the rear end in a top hat if I ended our friendship over a scone? Should I just chalk it up to him being upset by his breakup?

As a professional cum splatter forensics expert I have to say: cumming into the hand towel when the toilet bowl is readily available indicates a high level of aggression and animosity. It's personal. And from there it's just basic victimology to determine that the people closest to the girlfriend would be the most likely perpetrators, or perps.
