Above door vents, a question.
2023.06.03 07:13 Night_Shadow1515 Above door vents, a question.
A question to our Australian members. I have been able to find examples of Brisbane houses online and verandas appear to be just as common as the show implies but I am having lots of trouble determining if all the decorative door vents are a real thing (I mean I assume they are).
Are they common? Are they used in lieu of air conditioning? Do they function well?
In the show it's implyed that huge parts of the house are left open to the elements often (playroom leads to veranda), kitchen window is rarely, if ever, closed.
Is this also common? I assume it helps with the air circulation? Why are we not worried about critters getting in? Australia seems to have a ton of critters I'd rather keep outside 😅

2023.06.03 07:12 UseApprehensive1102 New Card Reviews: Red Deer!
| || |
Today we are back to reviewing a Basic card! Here we have the Red Deer! submitted by UseApprehensive1102 to cuecardgameAvid [link] [comments]
Rarity: Epic (Basic)
Special Ability: In The Headlights (If played opposite any card, this card loses -40 Power this turn.)
This card has a notable gimmick. It harbors heavy hitting power, but requires you to place this card in a spot without a card opposite this. Typically, this means using cards that prevent the opponent from playing their cards as much as possible like Loch Ness Monster, Assassin Bug, Eye Of The Storm and The Brain. Alternatively, another option is to buff this card with things like Gryphon, Hippocampus and Dr. Moreau. Even with this debuff, 45 Power for 4 Energy is still quite powerful, and this card isnquite easy to buff.
Unfortunately, trying to get a spot where this is not opposite a card is diffuclt to do, especially against low-cost cards like A Christmas Carol, Pomermanian and Amazon Sloth. Additionally, debuffs are also deadly against this card, like Power of 0, Irish Stew and Beefalo. All of these can diminish its high-Power potential, as well as burning from cards like Raphael, Fire and Thermodynamics, since this card relies on its high Base Power. And those debuff cards that prevent the opponent from playing are also just as deadly against you as against them, so watch out for debuffers in general.
Overall, this is quite a powerful card but requires a high skill ceiling to play. This is not a card you can just throw out and expect to win easily. In fact, this ability means you have to play carefully. Thus, it ranks B- in terms of viability.
2023.06.03 06:50 lukeylukeluke2 A letter to my parents. I wonder if they/me are narcissistic. 50% me just shouting into the void 50% feedback appreciated. Was going to get Chatgpt to change it into a rap to keep you all interested but cba
I am currently attending therapy and my work with them has made me more conscious of uncomfortable feelings that have led to a feeling of resentment and loss that stems from my childhood.
What follows Is my account of my experience, feelings, interpretations, memories. Whilst yours might be different, I am telling you mine and how it is real to me, sometimes from the perspective of the child that experienced these things where things are a lot more significant than they might be for an adult and not even register.
I get that some things might be remembered wrongly
i currently pay to attend psychoanalytic psychotherapy therapy 14 hours a week, 5 days a week. This is following a near lifetime of attending various other therapies, medications and being imprisoned by various coping mechanisms I learned to help me survive since childhood.
I feel you have already acknowledged that you have let me down. Yet you still wish to be connected with me. I would like to be connected with you too but I feel angry.
I want to connect with you both, my siblings, people in general and even myself but it seems I am deeply angry/resentful for being presented in my childhood with an environment where I felt scared and ashamed of expressing my needs and feeling deprived of emotional connection. My physical needs were taken care of but emotionally I think that people were not present and short of temper, time, attention and other resources.
I felt bad, guilty, ashamed for having needs and even felt fearful that my body would express a want for its needs to be fulfilled (e.g. crying).
I feel that I am expected to trust the excuses of the absences, the uncertainties, the short tempers, the half families and have learnt to feel shame/guilt to feel unsure, insecure and resentful of fully emotionally connecting.
I have curiosity about what the family/work secrets are, I don't need to know them but the message that family secrets have is that your loyalty sides with protecting these things at the expense of trust with your son as inherent in secrets is a lack of congruence. And with a lack of congruence you get gaslighting; you get a lack of trust in both the people you depend on for your survival and development (both personal and social) and emotional intimacy, connection cannot exist in that environment.
I feel that through various bits of information this caricature of you being some sort of James Bond/secret service/military/government (whatever) character has been allowed to be associated with daddy however all I have experienced of him is me feeling him being a tyrant in my childhood and being a broken man waiting for god whilst mummy waits on him in my adulthood. Of course I would like to see my father as James bond but he is a fictional/exceptional character that is unrealistic to try to emulate and the feeling of me having to live up to that has caused issues in it's own right. For me, nothing I can do is good enough as it is in the shadow of this fictional character. If I take away the fantasy (IE what I feel like I have been led to believe) and I just look at what I have experienced, I don't see a James Bond, I see a failed inventor with very childish defence mechanisms including using stories and the art of ambiguity (like poetic CV writing) and the idea that the threat of physical violence is the only way to assert ones strength.
I gave up trying to get a convincing account of various anomalies as the responses I get are very far fetched and just begat more questions, it's utterly hopeless. For example, I feel that whoever these half siblings are, whatever grandiose reasons there might be to justify doing things the way they have been done, they on the other hand are humans, apparently your children, who might be afforded more dignity than they have, especially in the light of finding out that the person they consider is their natural father is rather than dead, has actually been living with another family in the next city.
All during this, I have felt alone, not actually stood up for. When I brought all this to your attention previously I was told "we're sorry, we have let you down, but this is how we were brought up ourselves" as if to absolve yourselves of any responsibility for either the past, present or future.
I find it troubling that I cannot get myself to talk about this stuff, to express my feelings, to criticize or to enquire. I find it troubling that I would feel guilt, shame, fear to do so.
When bringing up my experience of things and it happens to not be in a favourable light, instead of acknowledging these things, 'the messenger is shot' and I am told I am ungrateful and 'only remember the bad stuff'
I remember receiving wonderful gifts, I loved playing with Lego etc. I wonder what was going on at the time I started to receive gifts that were more challenging than I could deal with yet didn't get help with completing them. I felt alone, unsupported. I felt it set me up for failure.
I am curious what was going on around 1990 when according to my doctors notes it was reported that I was having mood and behaviour problems. I don't know if it is because of the death of granddaddy, the move to a new school and city, the birth of Leah, the birth of a half sibling, me being stuck on a school coach vomit comet or something else that I was picking up subconsciously through whatever was going on in the environment I was being brought up in.
I wonder why for as long as I can remember, even before socialising with other children I was seen as polite (fawning/walking on egg shells) and I was shy.
I wonder what might have lead me to being anxious about vomit. It has been proposed that it is a fear of the act of involuntarily expressing something that I cannot digest. For example, being shamed for crying.
My coping mechanisms of stonewalling, ignoring could be interpreted as narcissistic behaviours. However, I do these behaviours out of anger, and fear, the combination or which would be resentment. I choose these behaviours because I am fearful of expressing my needs either aggressively or assertively. I fear this because as a child, I believed that physical violence, spanking, or much worse was always a potential.
I remember people, particularly daddy getting offended at things whether they were disrespectful, neutral or innocent. The safest thing for me was to just shut up and hide.
The sound of screaming, slamming doors, the feeling of the stonewalling made me feel frightened, shocked. The physical symptoms were very uncomfortable and I experience these same symptoms whenever I hear a door slam, whenever someone is short with me, whenever I'm in a car and countless other situations.
I feel that daddy's attempts to assert boundaries with Lyndsay (if that was what was going on... I don't actually have any idea what was going on other than perhaps this to explain Lyndsay's horrifying screaming) were undermined by mummy withdrawing and ignoring him (going to bed, sulking). This is mummy's way of expressing her anger and manipulating daddy and others into getting what she wants. This technique is used by people who are up against people who cannot fight physically as they are physically weaker than the other person and cannot communicate assertively in this situation for whatever reason. I have learnt to do this myself and have learnt that this is called passive aggressive behaviour and is often associated with narcissistic behaviour.
With my father being away for most of the time, both physically and mentally, it was left to my mother to bring me up. In this situation I have learnt to be protective of my mothers needs, to make her happy, often at the expense of me expressing my needs as this would have led to a painful drain on her limited resources. Daddy's way of asserting his strength through what I perceived as an unspoken physical threat taught me that masculinity is disgusting and 'not the way' that you ingratiate yourself to women and not a way that leads women to feel safe and treated with respect. This however has lead me to neglect to develop masculine traits and this affects me in all types of my relationships. I don't think I ever learnt to be assertive, I learnt that having needs met would lead to conflict and that conflict requires aggression and winning rather than discussion and perhaps compromise. Thus I have bizarrely become spoilt as I have never had my expectations questioned and not learnt to be happy with compromise. I instead sulk. The tragedy is that I am spoilt yet left with nothing.
I feel my mother should have been the source for nurturing and through unconditional love I would be given an innate sense that I am worthy of love no matter what the world says otherwise and my father for feelings of harnessing the world through my strength of assertiveness.
Instead I feel love (or in this case, approval, or just 'not being chastised') was on condition that I am mummy's rock, I please her, I fawn by not asking too much of her, whilst my sister demands everything, resulting in me being fed scraps.
I feel perhaps resentful of the general feeling of unease I have due to not being fully protected from what was going on in the family environment
I am frightened of every member of my family. The feeling of someone snapping at me cuts me deeply to this day.
The fact that I have felt that I am only comfortable to express all this with the distance of an email, at the age of 41 after decades of intensive therapy that I have been too ashamed to confess to having is very telling about the severity/enormity/entrenchment of my feelings.
The feeling as a child of waiting as if it was an eternity, wondering if my dad would ever come back to share some real connection knowing over time that I would only find when he did come back, he wasn't 'there'. he was in a violent stupor, the shrieking from my sister would start followed by the choking oppressive withdrawing from my mother; the 'performative' playing 'happy families' once daddy had sobered up as if nothing had happened (look again at those Christmas home videos, my smile is a grimace, and it still is. I suspect Lyndsay's is too. Poor Leah, floating around, I assume genuinely happy as she hasn't yet had things subconsciously filter in); only for the cycle to be gone through again and again.
This doesn't even touch the feeling that I have of Lyndsay acting out her frustrations on me.
I think self-diagnosing her with some sort of personality is a way of excusing yourselves from her childhood environment having an influence on her behaviour. It also condemns her to a lifetime of her being the way she is.
I felt like I could not depend on my parents for my security and development and had a sense of pride in being independent compared to my siblings yet have realised that I am just as dependent on others as my sisters are, in fact I am hiding the fact that I feel my needs would be too much for people (perhaps where me being afraid of puking comes from as I can't control it). we just have different ways of dealing with being dependent. Fortunately for my siblings that means they get to grab everything (I'm sure they have their pitfalls), yet for me it results in me shooting myself in the foot and I get scraps or nothing. I wait for attention, I get proof that I am loved by waiting for the person to give it and feeling resentful at the person for them not reading my mind.
That time when I was crying in my room and daddy asked me "if there was ever anything wrong you would tell me right?" And I said "no". That was an act of defiance. I was furious (for being absent; for being temperamental (triggered to snap at people and take things as a personal criticism whether they were or not); for not being an inspiration; for having the expectations of someone who was qualified/deserved the benefits of being a father without actually fulfilling his responsibilities of being a father) with you by then yet also terrified. I feel what you were asking was for me to emotionally connect with you so knowing that that's how I have power over you.
I do not intend for this to be a slagging match. I wish to just communicate my experience of things and how I feel. And honestly right now I feel ashamed, guilty and scared for any number of the "Four Horsemen" to have their input for having dared to express my needs or to have criticized. I probably won't pick up any phone calls or texts for now and will respond to an email when I feel ready in order to avoid an emotional interaction that, whilst I wish I could bare, I cannot.
The damage is done, no one can go back in time to fix this and I am not sure that I will see anyone putting in the amount of work into finally curtailing this intergenerational trauma, if that's what it is as much as I seem to have devoted my life to. I have experienced what I have experienced and had developed the methods of coping that I had available to me at the time and I now feel trapped by them. I don't know what to do for the future. Perhaps I need to go through some grieving process and develop the confidence that I will be able to express my needs, the acceptance that I will not always get what I want and no longer sulk. I have become aware of my feelings of anger and fear, I have been resentful, now I am attempting to express my feelings. What happens next might depend on the response I get but I will need to do things at my own pace. As for if you want to do anything, that's up to you. I feel safer to not be dependent on yourselves, or others in general however, like I said, despite this, I am dependent on people whether I like it or not. This area I am hazy with.
I am still working on myself, perhaps my feelings might change entirely. As for how things could work going forward, I don't yet know, I am yet to work it out, but maybe this is a step out of a cul-de-sac and towards somewhere closer than us just mutually switching our brains off and staring at the same corner of the living room and me 'performing'.
I need to learn to be comfortable expressing my feelings and needs, even if this means I am being critical. Then I need to let go of resentment and the idea that although you want connection with me I feel it is later than when I needed it.
I am preoccupied with a painful, discomforting sense of emptiness, a sense of deprivation, a hunger, a longing that I constantly, in one way or another seek to resolve or distract myself from. I would like to one day no longer feel this however I'm not even sure if I will be afforded such a luxury and finally get on with my life.

2023.06.03 06:21 screwed_by_po Christmas Chaos: or, how the omelet was launched into near orbit
This is not a Weevil Woman story (my actual MIL). She was out of our lives by this point. However, FIL has remarried and my Step MIL is wild.
The man has a type, and that type is purebred crazy bitch. As another commenter noted, his dick is a dowsing rod for crazy.
She has been described before, and more of her antics are posted previously. But, the gist is that she is The Anti Fun. A black hole of humorless, fun sucking misery.
She hates anything that even has a whiff of whimsy, an iota of frivolity… really anything that isn’t within the narrow bounds of what she defines as “intellectual” and “serious”.
One of her particular areas of concentrated chaotic evil is food.
Flavor is The Enemy. Flavor leads to enjoyment, enjoyment leads to eating. Flavor of any kind is met with a shocked “Que rico!” and immediately shunned. (Why yes, she does have a raging eating disorder.)
No salt, no garlic, no pepper, no spicy. Rosemary, weirdly, is OK but that’s it.
Also, nobody in her vicinity is allowed to consume anything she deems “rico”. I mean, you CAN. She will just make you regret it. Pouting, crying, sulking and general intense hatred beamed directly into the soul of whoever was dumb enough to enjoy food in her presence.
This particular Christmas some years ago, Step MIL was out of her element. She was being forced to have Christmas at BIL’s house, since he had the small children.
As an aside, I oil paint. Creepy landscapes these days. But back in college I did a number of life size, realistic self portraits… some nude, some draped nude. (YIKES, but what can I say- I was a teenager in art skool.)
I had lost track of them over the decades, until we saw BIL’s big multistory foyer, recently redecorated post divorce. One portrait is a 6’x4’ with phthalo blue figure (c’est moi) with a background of a cadmium yellow and orange landscape. Its huge and fucking eye crossingly vibrant. Suddenly, so was the foyer! And… yep, them’s my titties.
BIL had found the portraits in storage, painted his foyer to match them and hung them up. To annoy his ex wife I assume but frankly I don’t want to know.
So this entire scene unfolded under two pair of my bright phthalo blue life size tits. Just to set the mood.
Anyway, back to the main event: this set up meant Step MIL had less control over the food.
There was an omelet. BIL had seasoned it, the poor sap. Probably cooked it in butter, and there were peppers in it. Que rico, indeed! She was visibly seething over the omelet. Dicing the tablespoon she had generously deposited on her plate into tiny pieces and glaring savagely at anyone who was actually consuming the abomination of flavor.
Someone must be made to suffer for this intolerably delicious affront of an omelet.
Husband had not yet noticed the ominous silence at the other end of the table.
He innocently started a conversation, which somehow segued into a discussion of the scientific method with his dad.
She snapped. The crazy was done brewing and had reached a fine, roiling boil.
Omelet was hurled. The scientific method was imaginary! We were denying the subjective nature of reality! The plate was launched next. She started slamming her fists on the table and full throated, well supported by her diaphragm with excellent projection, screaming.
Everyone scattered like cockroaches. Unfortunately husband got sucked into the witless argument and remained.
Suddenly I saw this… weird sparkly spot in my left field of vision. Was I finally losing it? Had my bright blue boobs on the orange background actually broken my brain?
It started spreading… and spreading. I went to hide in the bathroom and looked in the mirror and realized half my field of vision was zig zag sparkly. Was I dying? Hopefully? PLEASE SWEET BABY JEEBUS, TAKE ME NOW. As I listened to more screaming and breaking of innocent crockery in the distance.
(Of course, it was a migraine aura. Which I had never had before. Thanks Step MIL!)
When the headache kicked in moments later, I pretty much grabbed my husband and ran for the door, leaving Step MIL sobbing with rage amidst the omelet wreckage.

2023.06.03 06:02 primove72 Important Things to Do When Moving to a New Home
Moving to a new home is often about packing and unpacking stuff. However, it’s a more complex process than that. You need to take care of the electricity systems, plumbing, roof, house cleaning, baby proofing, and other important tasks to settle in fully.
Your job as a new homeowner is to take a quick tour of your house and figure out what needs to be done so you can feel at home in your new place. To help you with your move, here we have compiled a list of the top important things you need to do to make your home livable. 1). Make it Baby Proof
Moving into your new home with a baby is often the most challenging task for any homeowner. It’s easier to settle in when you are moving alone or with adults, but taking care of your children (especially toddlers) can get quite hectic.
It’s important to baby and pet-proof your new home to ensure the safety of your little ones. Cover all the electric outlets and put gates on the stairways to prevent any accident. Don’t take your children upstairs for the first few weeks or until you are fully settled. 2). Plan your Layout
Do not unpack until you know which item goes where. You must already have an idea of which furniture pieces or decor stuff is packed in which box unless you have not labeled the cardboard boxes. Before you start unpacking, plan a rough layout. Decide which couch, lightings, house decoration stuff, and electrical appliances must be installed in which rooms. Once you know where you have to store which items, you can unpack your boxes without creating any mess. 3). Call an Electrician
Electrical units are probably the first thing you will want to handle after moving into a new home. Now, this isn’t something you can DIY or set up with the help of a friend. As soon as you move into a new place, call an electrician in Melbourne to organize your electricity system. Any emergency electrician in Sunshine Coast will help you with the installation of your electrical appliances. 4). Do a Deep Clean
Your new place needs a deep clean, especially after you are done unpacking your stuff. It’s totally normal to not feel like putting on your cleaning gloves and mopping the floors right after moving in. If you don’t have the energy to give your home a deep clean, consider hiring professional cleaners. You can also hire a lawn moving company in Sydney to get your garden ready for the guests. Deep cleaning is a must to make your home livable and look fresh. 5). Replace the Old Locks
You never know who has access to your current locks. The last thing any new homeowner wants is the intruder to break into their apartment. This is why you need to replace your door locks or install deadbolts instead for maximum security.
So, these were the few things you must do when you get into a new home. Southside removalists
is proud to provide quality services and excellent customer service to our valued clients. Our team of removalists is professional, reliable and experienced in all types of moves – from studio apartments to sprawling estates.

2023.06.03 04:38 Sush1burrito Mom wants to buy my entire nursery… but she wants to decorate it
I definitely didn’t expect her to offer this, nor would I expect anyone to pay for thousands of dollars of stuff and then let ME decorate lol.
But am I making a bad choice if I say, “no thank you”?
It’s my first, and probably only, baby.
But… I’m also going to be a single mom. Should I get over it and let her buy the nursery?
I definitely should be spending my money smartly.
Found out today because she saw the crib on my Amazon registry (babyletto hudson 3-in-1 convertible crib, in Expresso; for those curious lol) and said not to buy it, because she’s buying the whole nursery. But she said she didn’t like the crib I chose.

2023.06.03 03:36 Character_Taro_5938 Should I be the bigger person?
I did not have the best relationship with my parents during my teenage years but now as I’m almost 30 I have gotten a lot closer with my mom since I moved away. I felt bad for leaving my brother behind because I was basically the only adult figure in his life he would respect and listen to. Whenever my parents needed him to do something they would call me to call him, I had to help him with Job interview prep, help cook meals that he would be able to eat because he’s picky. At the time I didn’t think anything of it because he’s my little brother. My brother is only 1 year younger than me. Present day, he has a lot of anger issues, depression, and possibly undiagnosed bipolar disorder. The first year I left home I felt so guilty for leaving him, he’d call me saying he’s sad and has no motivation to do anything. We came up with a plan for him to get his act together: start making his own meals, going to the gym, applying for jobs, etc. Things were good. I talked to my mom everyday and my dad once a week and my brother every once in a while. Whenever I would come home to visit, my brother and I would spend a lot of time together. Flash forward 3 years later, my brother was visiting to get lasik eye surgery done because it’s cheaper here and he booked his flight on his own (which he usually doesn’t do) and he sent me his itinerary and it was for 2 months… I called immediately saying 2 months is way too long for just us two in my house. We bicker quite a lot when it’s just us and we both have tempers but he assured me it’d be okay, he’ll keep to himself a lot.
Over the 2 months we did have little tiffs here and there because I was trying to use this time to help him be an independent adult who would be able to live on his own. On his last night here, he got very very drunk and we got into a verbal altercation which led into a physical one. My brother beat me and I had to call the cops on him. He broke my bedroom door trying to get into my room when I locked him out. Meanwhile my boyfriend was on FaceTime with me the whole time having to witness and hear everything without being able to do anything to help. The cops came and asked if I wanted to press charges, obviously I said no because I would’ve had to bail him out since he knows no one here. He calmed down after the cops left. I didn’t realize he had called my dad and told him that I called the cops on him for nothing and told him some twisted version of the story. the next morning, my brother and I walked by each other in my living room and he didn’t say a word to me. I finished work that day and immediately drove to my bfs (3 hours away) I felt guilty for leaving my brother because I took the only car and he would’ve had to Uber to the airport so before I left I bought him fast food to last the night. My dad had called me asking what happened, I briefly told him I was still very shaken up so I didn’t go into too much detail. My dads only fcking comment was “you called the cops?! That’s going to bring down your property value” LOL right. So I immediately hung up the phone and didn’t talk to my parents for a week or two because I knew I needed time to cool off in order to handle a convo with them and I didn’t want to hate them. Meanwhile the next day my brother sent me a text “I’m sorry” to that I replied for what? And he said for hitting you. Fcking pathetic ass excuse for an apology.
A couple weeks later I talk to my parents and they understand what happened and swore to me they’d never give another dime to my brother and they really yelled at him. That summer I came home and didn’t speak a word to my brother, I just couldn’t and didn’t feel safe around him. It made me feel sad and guilty but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. Then when I came home for thanksgiving and christmas, my mom was trying to force and guilt trip me into talking to my brother. I told her if she keeps pushing me it’ll make me never want to talk to him. My parents said I should help my brother find a job while I’m home (he’s been unemployed for 2 years); I told them to F off he’s an adult and I have a full time job I need to do while I’m visiting, maybe in your free time they said. Some nights when my parents were asleep and my brother would come into the living room I’d slowly make small talk then eventually it led into me asking if he wants to watch a movie with me and into me inviting him to the gym with me. First gym interaction was him screaming at me for parking too close to a car, normally I’d retaliate but I just didn’t let him get to me so I just ignored him. Our relationship will never be the same but I was still able to talk to him occasionally.
Fast forward to February of this year. My Cousin had a huge Asian wedding. We all got very drunk and in the Uber home it was my mom, dad, brother, uncle, my bf, and me. Not sure how the conversation happened but my brother started talking about how he respects women and that triggered my bf who’s very productive of me. This led into a screaming match in the Uber, my parents and I both trying to calm my bf and brother down. When we arrived at the hotel and got out, my bf punched my brother in the nose and he was bleeding and the whole Asian family started screaming and crying. Everyone found out my brother beat me and my bf was trying to defend me. My bf and I immediately left the hotel and took an Uber back to the air bnb where we packed our things and got a hotel room for the rest of the weekend.
I received calls and texts from my parents and brother saying it’s my brother or my bf, I had to choose and if I chose my bf my brother would never talk to me again and my parents will never want to be In the same room as my bf ever again. My parents both said they loved my bf and could’ve loved him more than my brother but now they can never look at him again. They also said they thought him and I were going to take care of my brother after they passed away. My bf and I completely agree that it should’ve never gotten physical. I was sad to see my brother hurt but in a way he did kind of deserve it? I mean he had punched me in the face and legs and arms when he had beat me and I was unable to fight back? So is it payback idk?
My dad and I still talk from time to time but he still despises my bf and will send me texts from time to time saying he doesn’t trust him. My mom and brother have not once called me. I sent my mom a bouquet of flowers on Mother’s Day, I get a text “I’ll always love you”. I had texted my brother apologizing for what happened and that my bf and I truly do care about him but we just want him to get better. I told him if he starts seeing a therapist to help resolve the anger issues I’d be open to trying to rebuild our relationship- no response.
My bf and I have been together for 3 years, we have 3 dogs and a home together. He is my person. It’s been really hard for me because I used to be so close to my family. I’ve thought about being the bigger person and giving my mom and brother a call but part of me thinks what’s the point? Why do I have to be the bigger person? Shouldn’t my mom want to talk to me? Shouldn’t she call me? I just feel like they’re choosing my brother over me.

2023.06.03 03:34 Seedpound Scenario - Need opinions
This happened to me about a month ago. It's nothing major but could be something major after you hear the story. I was washing a house on a Sunday afternoon. The homeowner and his wife left for a day trip and they said they would open the garage from remote when I needed it opened to clean the garage floor. They left and I proceeded to wash the house. I then had them open the garage door and did the garage floor and then I was cleaning up to get out of there. I noticed Amazon had dropped off 2 packages while I was in the garage working. I said to myself "i'll put these packages in the garage where they're safe until they come back into town.Well...As I was picking up one of the packages it felt really heavy. I was like "what the heck is this thing" ? Then I noticed I was in the view of their Ring camera. So here we go "the liability scenario". Why should I even put my hands on that package and enter into a possible liability issue ? I would’ve been better off not even touching the package at all. Nothing ever came from the incident but it got me really thinking how my life could be easier by me not caring at all about their package left on their porch. Any of you guys who do a lot of residential work ? Your thoughts ?

2023.06.03 03:25 Uvblue420 Skinwalkers In Michigan
Skinwalkers in Rural Michigan
I recently purchased a 10,000 lumen flashlight to illuminate the surrounding woods as I walk my dog in the evenings. I have been hearing some strange noises at night, and I figured it would be nice to see everything that boxes me in as I walk Max, my dog. But boy was I wrong. I should have been afraid of what can't be seen outside the veils of my iphone flashlight. What was to be exhumed by my flashlight terrified me to my core. This happened a week or so ago, November, 2nd 2022, Harrison Michigan. The evenings were approaching abruptly now. It was only 8:30pm when I decided to take my golden retriever on one last shit walk before I got settled in for the night. At this time, in rural Michigan at least, it’s pitch black. I cursed underneath my breath as I opened the door and peered out. Fuck, chilly and dark. God, why haven’t I moved south yet? Max was timid this evening, which was so really unlike him. Very strange. The darkness emanating from outside my house poured in like a disease. It was void of any color. Upset about not replacing my porch light, I pulled out my new amazon special, this week it was a 10,000 lumen flashlight. Feeling its expensive metallic body in my hands felt exonerating, and the excitement to use it overthrew any bad vibes Max was giving. He whimpered as soon as the door opened, he then put his tail between his legs and shivered. I scoffed at his weak tendencies here, this was so unlike him. I turned this ungodly bright flashlight on and showed it forward. “For fuck sake look Max, nothing to be afraid of y-” I was cut off. My mouth gaped at what was in front of me. Shown in the powerful beam of the flashlight was a contorted lanky humanoid figure. It slumped down from a standing position and got on all fours like a person miming a frog. Then it jerked its head up and sniffed the air. Animistically. It turned its head and bored its stare right into my eyes. Then it darted into a bush on the edge of the woods. The edge of the woods that surround my entire house. I heard leaves crackle and watched the skin colored creature dissipate into them. I focused the beam of my light directly onto that bush. It was incredibly bright and the bush appeared like high definition from the immense light, especially in contrast to the oily blackness that surrounded me. The bush shaked ominously, like a predator was inside, shifting around. A familiar feminine voice came from that bush. “Please help me… oh god please help… help… help mee…” And the leaves rustled again. Max whimpered in terror and got between my legs. I grabbed the baseball bat that I kept beside the front door for just such occasions and held it beside my head in a “ready to whoop” gesture, the other hand on my flashlight. I shakily started towards the bush from my door. Max bolted inside, leaving me completely alone. “Helllppppp meee” the voice cooed. The soft feminine coo of the voice crackled a little this time. Yeah, almost as if something was masquerading as a female, and luring me in. I was about 6 feet away by now, I could feel the blood pulsating in my temples. Goosh flesh ran down my body. “Helllpp,” deeper voice “Meeee!” An elongated ashy white arm flung towards me at ankle height. I instinctively stomped down on it. I heard cracking and sloshing from underneath my shoe. I stepped directly onto its wrist. I heard a shriek from inside the depths of that bush and the hand sprung up like a trap being set off. The strength possessed by this creature was unreal, it slung me to the ground and began to reel me into its bush where it resided. I screamed, smacked the arm with the bat as hard as I could and then lost control of the bat. It fell next to me as I was dragged closer to the bush, now my feet were inside the leafy abyss. The voice turned into my mothers voice. The clawed hands grasp on me tightened with tremendous strength and the nails dug into my skin through my pants. “Help me Nathaniel. Your mother needs help. I can't walk.” Yeah alright. I shined my light into the bush. What I saw still makes me tremble. It was my dead mothers face there alright, but atop an ashy white skinned humanoid skeleton with backward joints. The arms bent unnaturally opposite of how they should, the legs were bent like a frogs ready to pounce. The eyes were milky white, but were extremely intelligent and they gazed into my consciousness. With all of my force, I horse kicked my deceased mothers face and heard a massive crunch as my heel connected with her masqueraded nose. A profane yelp of pain blasted into the darkness of this B.F.E. where I lived. The grip on my leg loosened just enough from the blow for me to break free. I shot upright and turned to the door. I dropped my flashlight in this madness and couldn’t give a shit less. It could keep it for all I fucking cared. I bolted towards the door, and as I reached the halfway point I was Illuminated by a blinding bright light from behind. Almost like a spotlight beamed right onto me. My. Fucking. God. That thing had my flashlight and was pointing it directly at me. “Helpp… Nathaniel. Help me son.” The light started to bob up and down. Whatever was holding it was lurking closer and closer to me, and was gaining on me much faster than I was to the door. So much for not being able to walk. I ended up winning the foot race miraculously. I jumped inside my door and slammed it behind me. I heard a loud thump into the door immediately following its closure. My mothers late voice came again, beckoning me. “Son. You know your mother has taught you better than this. Let me in. Please, my son.” The light shone through the window at me, blinding me. Seeing spots and now disoriented, I fumbled myself up and managed to lock the door. Max was at the furthest point possible from the door, glaring at the door trembling in fear. Three solid knocks from the top of the door frame. Then the light was gone and I heard a metallic clunk, the thing must have dropped the flashlight on its retreat. The light now was gleaming off a huge tree. I watched a tall skinny humanoid creature with long contorted ligaments jerkily run towards that tree. His legs bent opposite of how our legs do, and same with the arms. Then it bent down in the same erratic way that it moved, and got onto all fours as it approached the tree. It paused a second and peered up the trunk. His head swiftly snapped to my face. Its now black and sunken eyes stared into my soul. I froze in terror as it climbed that trunk, with its face directly bored into me mind you, like squirrel. Scurrying right up it, never leaving contact with my eyes. The light undoubtedly should be blinding his vision, but the sense of intelligence of it knowing my existence was uncanny. Light didnt hurt it. As it ascended it smiled at me, a predatory grin. It disappeared into a purple dot that was still in my vision from when I was blinded by the flashlight. As I moved my head to try to see the creature, I watched tree leaves russell and saw no more of it. Yet. I locked the doors that night and cleaned up Max’s accidents from not going out. At night as I was asleep, I was awoken by my mothers soft voice from right outside the bedroom window. “Let me in Nathaniel..” Then directly following this motherly imitation came a 10,000 lumen flashlight beamed into my face. I heard the window slowly open, but I was blinded by the light.

2023.06.03 02:57 Tsarinya Just finished the show!
I just finished the show and I am obsessed!!! I initially gave it a miss because I had read a few negative reviews and I wasn’t a fan of Cynthia Nixon but Ada is just so darn caring and loveable, she’s become one of my favourites - along with Pumpkin. I think I just didn’t like Cynthia’s character in Sex and the City and it clouded my judgement somewhat (sorry Cynthia!). I’m from the UK and the reviews I read here referenced Downton Abbey which I get, the same creator and producer, and as a big DA fan I could see some of the similarities. However I found after the first few episodes I totally forgot about them and was immersed in this world of New York. I don’t know anything about this part of history so it’s been really fun reading up on things. I’ve added so many books to my Amazon wish list and last Christmas I got ‘Women of Means’ by Marlene Wagman-Geller, must have been fate! I know the future of the show lies in the reviews in America and I was wondering how well received it has been over there? I read some are worried about Series 3 due to the writers strike - I hope that’s not the case. Sorry for the giddiness, I haven’t found a show that I’ve loved in so long and I don’t have anyone else to talk about it with apart from my mother (she’s also a big fan).

2023.06.03 02:50 TheBonesOfAutumn In the 1970’s, two unrelated deaths occurred within the confines of a small home that once stood along Lawrence County, Indiana’s Ramsey Ridge Road. Referred to by locals as “The Mysteries of Skin Ridge,” this is the story of the unusual deaths of Dennis McArthur, and Gerry Lee.
Nestled in northern Lawrence County, Indiana, just six miles from Bedford, lies Ramsey Ridge Road. Just under three miles in length, the rural pathway once referred to as “Skin Ridge'' winds through the sparsely populated area’s dense woods atop a hill overlooking Little Salt Creek and nearby Bartlettsville. In the 1970’s, two completely unrelated deaths occurred within the confines of a modest green house that once stood along the ridge. Referred to by locals as “The Mysteries of Skin Ridge,” this is the story of the unusual deaths of Dennis McArthur, and Gerry Lee.
On April 11, 1976, 44-year-old Pearl McArthur returned home after a lengthy stay at Madison State Hospital. Pearl, who would later be diagnosed with schizophrenia, had committed herself to the hospital in early December, leaving her 18-year-old son, Dennis, to care for the house in her absence. Accompanied by her 23-year-old daughter, April, who lived in nearby Bedford with her husband Gary, Pearl made her way inside the small two-story farmhouse.
Inside, Pearl and April found the home in complete disarray. Trash laid strewed about, lamps and furniture were overturned, and the stove was caved in, its exhaust pipe torn from the wall. It was unusually cold inside as though no heat had been recently used, and a strange smell permeated the air.
Alarmed, Pearl and April began to frantically search for Dennis. As they made their way over to a small couch located in a bedroom on the second floor, they noticed a pile of blankets lying on the sofa. As Pearl peeled back the layer of quilts, she was met with a horrific scene; Dennis’s decomposed body lay beneath the bedding. They immediately summoned police.
Dennis was found in a fetal position on the couch, facing inwards. Although covered by quilts, he was nude from the waist down. The coroner estimated he had died one to two months prior, however the cold weather had, in part, delayed the decomposition process making it difficult to give an exact time of death. During an autopsy, it was discovered that Dennis was severely emaciated, to the point of starvation. No evidence of external or internal injuries were found.
Police discovered several bottles of pills in the home; vitamins used for energy, an antidepressant, and a drug used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. All of the pills were prescribed to Pearl, and were still relatively full. A toxicology test was conducted and proved negative, however the state pathologist who performed the test admitted that the test was incapable of detecting substances such as LSD. He also explained due to the amount of time that had passed since his death, the tests might not be one hundred percent accurate. Dennis’ cause of death was listed as malnutrition and exposure.
Investigators found several clues at the scene that struck them as odd. Although the cabin appeared ransacked, nothing seemed to be missing, including a small amount of money that was found within the disheveled home. Along with money, a small amount of, now spoiled, food was found in the cabinets and refrigerator. An upstairs window was found to be broken from the inside. Also upstairs, investigators discovered several large pools of blood, including one beside the couch where Dennis’ body was found. They also found blood on the backside of the couch, on a rug, and on the kitchen door frame, along with splatter on a wall. Testing confirmed the blood to be human.
Dennis was well known to both police and the county’s social workers. His mother, Pearl, was frequently in and out of mental institutions leaving Dennis and his two siblings to fend for themselves. The children’s father, Walter, had abandoned the family and moved to Georgia years prior. In 1972, Dennis was arrested for theft and truancy. That same year, he was expelled from school and never returned.
He was again arrested in 1973, this time for driving without a license, fleeing from police, possession of alcohol, and curfew violation. After his release, Dennis was sent to live with a man named Al Hagopian, a case worker for the Youth Services Bureau. Al was quoted as saying; “Finding him a place to stay was hard. The house where he had been staying was pretty grubby, and the state thought he was too young to live alone. His mother was in and out of hospitals a lot and he worried about her constantly. He didn’t want to return home, but said he had to go back to help care for his mother.”
Al discovered that Dennis “read and wrote backwards,” and was “practically illiterate.” After reviewing Dennis’ school records, he found multiple instances where teachers labeled Dennis as having disciplinary problems when it came to schoolwork, however not once did they mention he had a clear learning disability. Al further explained that attempts to secure employment for Dennis were nearly never successful. Aside from being unable to read or write, he had no vehicle. He also had no stable address or phone number and was oftentimes dirty and dressed in near rags.
Dennis’ unfair hand he had been dealt did not stop him from trying to act like an average kid most of the time, Al added. He explained that Dennis had an interest in cars, enjoyed hanging out with his friends, and was always chasing girls. He had also told Al he wanted to someday save up enough money for a new guitar, as he loved to play music. Al admitted that Dennis was also into the “street scene” and had dabbled in drugs and alcohol. Dennis returned home after two months of living with Al.
In 1974, after another arrest and his subsequent release from a youth detention center, Dennis went to live with his father for a short time. Dennis’ arrest had made headlines when it was learned the young man had been kept with adult men for a long period before being transferred to the youth detention center. Dennis and Walter reportedly couldn’t get along, however, and Dennis ran away to Florida. He lived there for a few months, washing cars to make money, before returning to the home on Ramsey Ridge in Indiana in 1975. He was again arrested, this time in Bloomington, Indiana for carrying a concealed weapon, alcohol consumption, and curfew violation. At the time of Dennis’ death, the charges against him were still pending.
According to his sister, April, she had gone to visit Dennis at the home on Ramsey Ridge on Christmas Eve. April said Dennis was sitting on the couch, playing his guitar. He also showed her a new rug he had purchased for the home. According to her, he seemed his usual self and the home was clean. April offered him some money, however Dennis refused claiming he had enough to get by.
Lucy Lively, an aunt of Dennis’ who lived “within hollering distance,” claimed she entered the home on February 1st to turn off a lamp that had been left burning. While she did not see Dennis, she claimed the home's interior was in normal order. Joe McArthur, Dennis’ paternal grandfather who also lived nearby, said it was not unusual for Dennis to disappear for long periods, so he thought nothing of the youths' absence as of late.
When Walter, Dennis’ father, was informed of his son's death, he informed police that Dennis, along with two male friends, had come to visit him in Georgia in mid December. He gave a description of the two teens and told police they had been introduced to him as “John Boy'' and “Blonde John.”
Police were able to track down “Blonde John” who was identified as 18-year-old John Fonk of Bloomington, Indiana. John told investigators that he and Dennis had driven to Florida together in October, not December, as Walter had stated. John explained they had stopped by Walter’s home in Georgia on their way back home. He was confident in the date as he had joined the Air Force in December. He also explained that “John Boy” had been a hitchhiker they had picked up along the way. According to John, “John Boy” rode back to Indiana with the pair, but he had not seen him, or Dennis since. He described him as being in his mid 20’s. After learning of the discrepancy in Walter’s story, police again tried to contact him, however phone calls and letters went unanswered. Unfortunately, they were never able to identify “John Boy.”
Further questioning of social services showed that Pearl had filled several grocery orders provided by state services, however the orders ceased when she had been again hospitalized. Eventually the Lawrence County Welfare Office had taken control and promised to look in on Dennis, however they could provide no evidence they had followed up on the case. They suggested that Dennis, overwhelmed with his impoverished lifestyle, had simply starved himself to the point of being comatose, before succumbing to the harsh cold of winter. They were quoted as saying “We were aware of him of course, but he never came to us. We don’t go looking for people if they don’t come to us for help. Now if he had, we would have done something.”
The local sheriff as well as members of Dennis’ family were unsatisfied with Dennis’ listed cause of death and continued to pursue the investigation for several months. Unfortunately due to a lack of funds, more elaborate tests that may have presented some clue as to how Dennis died could not be conducted. Sheriff Robbins was quoted as saying, “This is a very disturbing mystery, because even if someone confessed to killing him, I doubt we would have the evidence to prove it. But it sure is hard to believe he could kill himself like that, by just laying down and dying. We aren’t closing the case, it will remain open. But until we have something more to go on, there’s not much more we can do at this point.”
Dennis was laid to rest at Heltonville’s Gilgal Cemetery. Few attended the modest closed casket funeral and subsequent burial. One journalist gave a last description of Dennis’ final resting place,
“The dogwood trees are in full bloom on the hillsides of Gilgal Cemetery, and though Dennis’ body now rests peacefully beneath a carpet of fallen petals, his soul will surely never rest until the reasons behind his death are discovered.”
Pearl, Dennis’ mother, passed away in 2000 at the age of 67. Walter, Dennis’ father, died in 1988. His sister, April, passed away suddenly in 2006 at the age of 53. Dennis also had an older brother, Gordon, who passed away in 1994 at the age of 42.
On the evening of May 28, 1978, police were again summoned to the little green house on Ramsey Ridge. The home was now occupied by 27-year-old Gerry Lee, a divorced self employed carpenter, and his roommate, 25-year-old Michael Davis. When police arrived, Michael informed them that Gerry had committed suicide.
Gerry was found hanging from a maple tree located 20 feet from the home's front porch. The rope had been tied off to a branch approximately 10 feet above the ground and fashioned into a noose. His feet were found to be touching the ground, and his knees were bent. Blood was discovered on Gerry’s hands and pants, despite having suffered no visible wounds. An autopsy would reveal that Gerry had died of asphyxiation as a result of a fracture to his cricoid cartilage located at the base of his larynx. The coroner stated this was not an injury normally associated with suicidal hangings, but instead blunt force trauma to the throat. Inside, more blood was found on a television set, the phone, and on the kitchen floor. A window on the home's back door had been broken from the outside, leaving shards of glass lying on the kitchen floor.
When questioned, Michael gave an explanation for the unusual findings. He claimed that he, Gerry, and two other friends, Mike Oakly and Roberta Chandler, had spent the day in nearby Bedford before the foursome returned to the home on Ramsey Ridge. There, Michael told police that he and Gerry got into a “friendly scuffle” that resulted in Michael falling into the window in the kitchen. He suffered a deep laceration to his forehead that left him bleeding profusely.
According to Michael, Roberta and Mike accompanied him to seek medical treatment in Bedford, while Gerry stayed behind at home. Michael returned home alone from the hospital, having left Roberta and Mike in town. It was then he discovered Gerry’s body and summoned police. He added that that evening Gerry had threatened to shoot himself multiple times with one of the loaded guns kept in the home.
When Roberta and Mike were taken in for questioning, they gave similar accounts of the night's events. Both were released. Aside from having a visible wound, medical staff confirmed Michael had been to the hospital that evening, having sought treatment for a laceration to his forehead.
Still, both the prosecutor and the county coroner stated they were not entirely satisfied with a verdict of suicide. The coroner stated “Some things have not fallen into place like they should with a suicide case. Although it looks as though it could be a suicide, there are so many angles that do not fit in with the suicide verdict.” The prosecutor agreed, “I’m not satisfied with how the investigation was handled,” he said, “and there are still a lot of unanswered questions. Several months later, Gerry’s case was brought before a grand jury who ultimately returned a verdict of “probable suicide.”
Gerry was laid to rest in Bedford’s Breckenridge Cemetery. Despite his death being declared a suicide, many locals, including Gerry’s friends and neighbors, continued to believe that something more sinister may have happened that evening, and the suicide was in fact staged. The community’s more superstitious elders shared a similar belief, however adding that a “strange ethereal force” inhabited the room where Gerry once slept, and where two years prior the body of Dennis had been discovered.
Whatever your opinion may be, it seems for some the books will never fully be closed on “The Mysteries of Skin Ridge.”

2023.06.03 02:44 Background-Joke-7886 Hate my house and my life kinda too.
Hello everyone. Please dont judge me but i absolutely hate my house. I cant stand it. I am beyond grateful to have hot water, a warm bed, a roof over my head. I know many others do not have. Im not being abuse or anything so I'm not sure why I hate it so much. I try to practice gratutude but I can't take it. Im also an only child and when im home alone i get stir crazy. If i spend to much time home i end up having a full blown panic attack. recently ive been sleeping in the living room because my room feels to claustrophobic i feel like the walls are closing in. I've tried cleaning the room organizing and decorating and buying pretty white curtains but once I get in the room and close the door its so isolating I cant stand it. Theres nothing to do in the house and my mom is rarely home because she works and when she is home shes only sleeping. I just sit and watch tv and try to clean and organize and do my work but it becomes so overwhelming I feel so fucking trapped its insane. Recently I have absolutely hated hated hated being home. Today its raining and I am going insane I want to take a walk but theres a thunderstorm. The apartment is so dark and disorganized I try to clean up and buy furniture when I can but im only 20 and I'm also a full time student so sometimes things do go to plan. If the home is messy the feeling of dread and doom is even worse I can't even function i Just cry. Its so small and we barely have air conditioning no matter how many air conditioners we buy. The floors are also falling apart and my mom never calls the landlord to fix it. I don't bring many friends over due to the state of the house. I want to move out but I am going to college and I am child to a single mother I don't have much income to stretch. I work two jobs but there is only so much I can do. I feel so trapped. In the winter its even worse. I wanted to move to a warmer state but I got rejected from my choice school and the state I am in has very good biology programs so, it didn't make sense to go anywhere else. Even as I type this I am trapped I feel so stuck its fucking awful I can't take it anymore. I applied to dorm housing and the worst part is my mom doesn't want me to move which I don't understand because I am miserable in this terrible house I can't take it. We aren't allowed to have pets or anything in this apartment it's just a brick box its so terrible and overwhelming. Im often the only one cleaning because my mom never cleans and we didn't have a couch for years. Often when I think about it I just get angry. I try so hard to ignore it and be grateful but I can't take it anymore. Please help me I don't know what to do anymore I am honestly miserable.

2023.06.03 02:35 LostInDerMix Stocking Calculation For Nano Fish?
| || |
Planning/Setting up my first planted aquarium. submitted by LostInDerMix to nanotank [link] [comments]
I have been researching for a year and finally got the plants. Will see what kind of levels I can maintain on the water before I make a final selection but I currently have my heart set on Pseudomugil, Rasboras, Ricefish, Thai Microcrabs, and some caridina/neocaridina.
Does the rule 1” of fish to 1 Gallon of space apply for nano fish or is there a different formula?
Do I need to try to subtract the space occupied by substrate, hardscape, and plants?
I want to stock as many tiny babies as can be happy and healthy in my aquarium.
The aquarium is a Landon 100P 50gal 39.4” x 17.7” x 17.7”.
I have the 15L FZONE canister filter and 2.5L CO2 Generator.
The image I have attached is the scape sketch.
I have a variety of ceramic hidey stones, agate, Jasper, and snowflake obsidian as the hardscape. Doing the substrate as crushed river stone > nutrient rich sand and root tabs > aqua soil > decorative aquarium sand.
I am stocking with the below plants, will see how many survive!
Alternanthera Ficoidea Rainbow × 3 Alternanthera Lilacina × 3 Anubias Marble White × 3 Anubias White Platinum Petite × 8 bacopa salzmanni! X 3 Bacopa Salzmannii 'Purple' × 3 Bucephalandra APF Platinum × 3 Bucephalandra Aragon × 3 Bucephalandra Brownie Galaxy × 1 Bucephalandra Brownie Ghost × 1 Bucephalandra Brownie Purple × 3 Bucephalandra Brownie Purple × 1 Bucephalandra Brownie Violet × 1 Bucephalandra Deep Purple × 1 Bucephalandra Petite Galaxy × 3 Bucephalandra Phantom Mini × 3 Cryptocoryne petchii 'Pink' × 3 Cryptocoryne Retrospiralis Tissue Culture × 1 Cryptocoryne Tropica × 3 Echinodorus Aflame Purple Knight Red x 1 Echinodorus Aflame × 1 Echinodorus pink Amazon Sword × 3 Echinodorus Rainbow × 1 Fissidens Nobilis × 3 Hemigraphis Exotica Purple x 1 Hydrocotyle Leucocephala × 3 Hygrophila 'Compact' × 3 Hygrophila Chai [Mini Size] × 1 Hygrophila Chai × 1 Hygrophila Salicifolia Purple × 3 Limnophila Hippuridoides × 3 Lobelia cardinalis 'Mini Platinum' × 3 Lobelia Cardinalis × 6 Ludwigia sp.

2023.06.03 02:29 Drakolf TftM- Impeccable Service:
It was an older profession, one that had maintained its presence even after the dissolution of the wealthy elite. Butlers were trained to manage a household, to keep things clean and organized by efficiently delegating tasks to workers, to make life as easy for their employers as possible.
There had been a certain degree of prestige attached to the title, even though they were effectively well-trained household managers- both in terms of working to keep things neat and tidy, as well as ensuring everyone was doing their job correctly.
In the past, anyone with the money could train to become one, approximately 15,500 Euros before the Galactic Standard Credit was adopted, albeit this was on the higher end of training.
They were expensive, certainly, but with hoarded wealth returned to circulation and inflation largely taken care of as a result of this, anyone with a decent job could afford one, or if they so chose, become one.
Alex had always had a special interest in butlers, a mixture of ADHD and autism contributing more toward this fixation than any of the benefits of the job. He'd always liked helping people, but with the stress of everyday indirect conversation flying over his head- passive aggressive remarks as to what needed done without explicitly stating such being a major contributor- he'd found that a more rigid system of expectations and rules benefited him more.
And as far as his family was concerned, the exact job didn't matter as long as he thrived in it.
The clicking sound of the stimulation device in his hand soothed his nerves as he anxiously awaited meeting with his potential employer. He'd had plenty of practice ignoring that lingering doubt that he'd forgotten to take his medication, even though he was absolutely certain that he had, even so, it wasn't quite enough to avoid the need to stim.
He took a silent, deep breath, fully aware of the sensation of his lungs filling up, the formal vest only slightly constricting against his chest- a pleasant sensation, a gentle pressure- and he exhaled equally silently.
The clicking was subtle enough that most Humans could barely hear it, Alex's hearing wasn't any better than the average Human, it was just more sensitive to specific sounds. He liked the soft clicking.
A knock sounded against the hardwood door, the clicking stopped, the device stowed away surreptitiously as Alex put on his Normal Face.
Meeting with a client was among the most important steps for hiring, it was just like a job interview- and he'd suffered through plenty of those. Stand up, approach the door, open it while-
"Please come in." Alex spoke. He needed to present as good an impression as possible, demonstrate that he was more than capable of doing the job. "May I get you some refreshment, sir?"
Rohirr worked in the government- not the Hedron, everyone knew that could either be the best or worst thing to happen to a political career- but as a local politician in the American state of Oregon, the mayor of Salem.
He'd immigrated to Earth after the Human-Caniti War, having made planetfall and having the best time of his life while his life was on the line, even when he'd been taken as a prisoner of war. The fact that the Humans didn't even bat an eye at his running for mayor didn't even shock him, their species had each other's respect.
After all, the enemy you cannot kill is your best friend.
He regarded the Human in formal business attire with great scrutiny, he could immediately tell the Human was putting up a guarded front, his expression was too stoic, the delivery of his spoken words sounding more like rote memorization than anything natural.
This presented a challenge.
"Tea, and one of those nice little pastries. The one with cucumber." Rohirr rumbled. He was easily twice the height of the Human, some small part of him- probably the part that reared its head only now that his pups were recently born- wanted to pick the Human up by his scruff and sit him on the couch.
The fact that Humans didn't have a scruff didn't occur to him until he was sat down, the Human already in the process of pouring him a cup of tea, the pastries already laid out on a plate.
Efficient, he hadn't even noticed the Human getting everything set up for him.
The Human set the tea pot on a plate designed to prevent heat from leaching into the table and damaging the finish. "Please enjoy, sir. Is there anything else you require before we begin?"
Anything else, huh? What was it the Humans liked to do? "A breeze would be nice." He remarked, trying not to think too hard on if that phrase was too non-specific. The way the Human's expression shifted ever so slightly intrigued Rohirr, there was a moment of silence.
"Of course, sir." He replied, walking over to the window and opening it. A breeze blew in, bringing with it the cool air of a late spring day. The Human looked at Rohirr. "Anything else, sir?"
Rohirr shook his head, and the Human sat down across from him.
Canicians had always appreciated Human military gear for its practical defense, it had stymied the worst of their bites and claws, and had held up surprisingly well to their ballistics and energy-based weaponry. Human business suits were a close second.
The uniform design and the fact that they could be tailored exactly to the wearer's proportions made it moderately popular among more politically-minded Canicians. Plus, the sight of them being torn to shreds after a headed debate was alluring in its own right, but their relatively expensive nature also meant that needlessly fighting in them became too expensive.
They usually wore them both for the style, and because it 'humanized' them enough.
Humans, of course, wore them better. They didn't need to be careful, or risk ripping them to shreds, and there was something to be said about the professionalism of Humans wearing one.
It was why the Human intrigued him, because it was clear that professionalism was an ongoing effort.
The Human breathed in, it was silent, only noticeable by the notable swelling of his chest. Nervousness?
The Human began with thanking Rohirr for his time. "As you are a busy man, I will be brief-"
"Take as long as you need." Rohirr interrupted. "I am here to hire someone to help maintain my den, keep my pups in line, and deal with the stuff that's too annoying to deal with myself." Blunt, honest, not something Humans often appreciated, but considering that brief pause when he used passive language, it was worth trying.
"Of course, sir." Came the immediate response, most Humans were put-off by his brusque nature, even though it was that brevity that won him the election. This one responded well, even seemed relieved. "I am fully trained to manage your household. I am qualified to interview and hire any staff you may need within a set budget, at your discretion, and have the skills necessary to establish routines, schedules, staff hierarchy, and setting the standards that will ensure your comfortable and uninterrupted lifestyle."
He was back to the rote memorization, a script read and re-read countless times. As the Human listed off the qualifications he had- which included, but was not limited to establishing menus, coordinating cooking, cleaning, clothing care and maintenance- Rohirr realized that he'd completely forgotten to ask their name.
"Do you have any questions, sir?" The Human asked.
"Just one, I neglected to ask your name."
The way the Human's face paled indicated to Rohirr that he had made an enormous gaffe, he was about to apologize when the Human began apologizing. "I am terribly sorry, sir. In my haste to ensure your comfort, I forgot to introduce myself and ask your name."
There was panic, the scent of stress hormones, fear.
"The fault is mine." Rohirr replied. "I was more focused on figuring out how to speak with you that I had, likewise, completely forgotten to ask."
The relief on the Human's face was palpable, he simply nodded and said, "My name is Alex Knox, sir. May I ask your name?"
"Rohirr." The Canician answered in kind. He held his hand out and the Human shook.
Alex was just coming down from a near panic attack, the reassurance of his potential client had gone a long way to help him normalize. He didn't like handshakes, the way he could feel the texture of another person's fingerprints always left him feeling gross afterwards. While white gloves weren't strictly part of the uniform, he preferred wearing them because they offered a layer of separation.
That, and they were just the right level of snug.
"Are there any other questions, sir?" He asked.
Rohirr nodded. "Yes. Do you have any chronic illnesses or similar that I need to be aware of?"
It was the question Alex dreaded, but he didn't lie. "I have autism and ADHD, sir. However, I am on medication that allows me to manage the symptoms of the latter, and my training more than makes up for my disability."
Rohirr hadn't anticipated the waves of fear-scent that emanated from the- from Alex. That paternal instinct urged him to take hold of the Human, curl up with him, and growl at anyone who dared threaten him. Shaking off the thought, he simply replied, "Is that all?"
Alex nodded. "Yes, sir."
"As I understand it, your condition comes with some difficulty in understanding indirect communcation, such as passively remarking what you want, instead of direct communication?"
Rohirr nodded. "Then there should be no problem. I prefer direct communication, and can provide any necessary accommodations you need for your- what was that word, again?"
Rohirr snarled at the word. "As though you were any less!" He barked. "When can I expect you to start?"
"When do you want me to start?" Rohirr smiled at this question.
"Today, if at all possible. By chance, are you willing to work in-home?"
Alex smiled at the question, it simplified things. "Absolutely, sir."
Rohirr stood, as did Alex, and they shook hands once more. Both felt confident this was the start of a wonderful arrangement. Though, he did have one more, more selfish request. "Do you mind wearing the uniform, even on rest days? I think it looks good on you."
Alex could hardly contain his glee at the request.
Out-and-out mansions weren't often built, since more often than not, they had existed primarily as a symbol of wealth and status. That didn't stop people from trying.
Rohirr wasn't one of those people- certainly he did have a large home that could be considered mansion-adjacent- but that was primarily because Canician culture dictated that if you are in a position to accept guests into your home, that you ensure they have a place to rest. His home was accessible to the public, and it was made very clear that this was a cultural thing, and that him keeping his constituents out was a massive faux pas in his society. He also made it very clear that in his society, it was also understood he would be expected to deal with disrespect with extreme violence.
He'd hold back, of course, and he'd pay for their medical bills up to a certain Credit amount, but beyond that, he gave as many shits as he took- which was to say, none.
Alex marveled at the size of the place- while it wasn't like the buildings he'd visited and trained in, it was certainly more than he anticipated. Even though he knew the place was open to the public, he was moderately surprised that nobody who didn't live there was inside.
"There are three floors." Rohirr explained. "The first floor is what I refer to as the visitation floor. It is understood this is a public space with rules. It is also understood that any staff I hire to maintain this space are not to be disrespected, and that they are free to defend themselves as necessary. I will not fire someone for telling a rude asshole to shut up."
The first floor consisted of three sitting rooms, a room with publicly available snacks and drinks- including a keurig- a small library, and three empty rooms which seemed to be multipurpose. All of the rooms had what could be described as a minimum of decoration, things that certainly made the rooms seem less empty, but nothing of particular value or note.
"The upstairs is soundproofed, and requires a personal ID to enter. I will register your ID to our security systems and how you how to operate it in the event you feel more staff is necessary. Any questions?"
"Yes, sir." Alex replied. "You mentioned other staff?"
"Indeed. A gardener, a janitor, and security. The former two will not need to be managed by you, they are locals in need of a job due to... unfortunate circumstances." Rohirr cleared his throat before taking his ID out and inserting it into a scanner. The wall slid open, revealing an elevator. They both got in. "The latter is my brother, Grauf. Our tribe is such that family protects one another, he is aware you are here, that I have hired you, and that you are thus allowed to be present."
Alex nodded. "Understood, sir." He replied. "Will I be expected to interact with the public in any capacity?"
Rohirr shook his head. "No. In fact, the less you interact with them while on-duty, the better. If I ever have an event or such that I ask if you are willing to assist with, you are within your rights to refuse, and are not contractually obligated to."
Alex appreciated that Rohirr explicitly pointed this out, it gave him a better sense that his employer cared that he was comfortable with his job.
They stepped out onto the second floor, which was visibly different from the first floor. As Rohirr walked Alex around, he observed the different rooms.
First and foremost, there were five bedrooms, one of which was larger, the others which were somewhat smaller and had VariaBed adjustable beds- the kind that could be changed between single beds to bunk beds.
"These are rooms meant for staff." Rohirr explained. "This larger room is yours, a small perk of your position. While I would prefer staff that is willing to work in-home, I also recognize this is not always feasible or desirable. These rooms will always be available for rest, I do not want any of my staff overworked."
The rest of the rooms consisted of a kitchen, a laundry room, an elevator connected to both side entrance, the second floor, and the third floor. "The staff elevator." Rohirr remarked, as well as two bathrooms, an entertainment room, a sitting room, and a few other rooms for tailoring, spare uniforms- autofit, Alex noticed with a little distaste- a pantry, and an empty room.
"I honestly have no idea what to do with this room, you are free to use it as you see fit." Rohirr finished.
The main difference between this floor and the prior one was that this had what Alex could only describe as Canician art hanging on the walls. "May I ask as to the decorations, sir?" He asked.
"My mate likes to carve." Rohirr replied. "She supplements our income through selling her works. There is spiritual meaning attached to them, wards against evil, masks meant to invoke strength and stamina, totems meant to grant clarity of mind." Rohirr pointed at a door beside the elevator. "Stairs, in case of emergency. And in the event that the stairs are not an option-" He slid open a panel on the wall. "This chute provides an even faster exit. It is large enough to accommodate me, and it is not a pleasant descent."
"Understood, sir." Alex replied. "And the third floor?"
Rohirr nodded. They went up the elevator to the third floor. The second floor was pleasant and had character, this was very clearly meant to evoke Canician culture. While the structure was still standard, the decorations were subtly different.
"Also of spiritual significance." Rohirr stated, as though reading Alex's mind. These totems have been in my family for generations, they are literally irreplaceable. It is understood they will not remain whole forever, it is understood that they will one day break, and to my people, this is a sign that our ancestors have finally departed, and no longer need to protect us."
"I will ensure they are treated with the respect they deserve, sir." Alex replied solemnly.
The rest of the floor consisted of no less than eight bedrooms. One which was very clearly the master bedroom, and another one that also served as the security room. A heavily-scarred Canician with several mechanical limbs regarded them briefly.
"Brother." He spoke, his voice clearly synthetic.
"Grauf." Rohirr replied. "This is Alex, he is my new hire. Alex, this is my brother."
Alex remembered hearing that Canicians appreciated compliments regarding their strength, but was uncertain on how to approach that. He simply gave Grauf a respectful bow. "I am pleased to make your acquaintance, sir." He stated. He chose his next words carefully. "I look forward to hearing any tales you wish to share about your past victories."
Grauf raised the only organic eyebrow remaining, then let out a soft growl. "Your Human is trying too hard."
"Better to try too hard than to be insulting." Rohirr remarked. "Don't forget to peel yourself off the screens once in a while, you're crippled, not decrepit."
Grauf laughed, it was a wet, painful-sounding wheeze that made Alex wince. "We both know I'll die before I let myself be useless." He said. "Enter, Human, you'll need to be registered into the system."
Alex approached, his ID in hand, which Grauf snatched without warning. He slid the ID into a slot, tapped a few keys, then pulled it out. "Congratulations, Human. You have access to one of the most secure buildings on this planet, my brother is expecting little from you, I expect your best."
"I will endeavor to meet your expectations, sir." Alex replied, taking his ID back.
"None of this 'sir' kraaf! If you insist on calling me by a title, you will refer to me as 'Hurr', Grauf, or- if you want to submit to me- Chief."
"Understood, Hurr." Alex replied.
Grauf nodded approvingly. "Come back to me when you've finished orientation, I should have your permissions set, and you can help me set up security clearances and hierarchies."
Alex didn't miss the appreciative glance-over from Grauf.
Beyond the rooms was a play-room, within which were three Canician pups and an older female one- Rohirr was quick to identify her as Carraf, as well as his two sons and daughter, Bif, Rouf, and Harra.
"It is my hope that you work here long enough that you at least see them to their naming ceremony." Rohirr replied.
"I am not familiar with this 'naming ceremony', sir." Alex replied.
"When they are of age, they choose their own names. It is not our place to say who they are, that is what they shall discover."
They left the pups and Carraf alone for the time being- there would be plenty of time for proper introductions later, when she wasn't focused on wrangling them. As the tour reached its end, Rohirr and Alex stepped out onto a balcony.
"Is this adequate?" Rohirr asked.
"I do not know what you mean, sir." Alex replied.
"I mean what I ask. I am not like the rich men of your people from long ago, there is no such thing as 'pedigree' among my people." Rohirr met Alex's eyes. "Is it enough?"
Alex shook his head. "That implies there is some metric by which worth is judged, sir." He replied. "If I may be so bold, I wish to share with you why I do this job."
Rohirr nodded. Alex looked outward toward the city of Salem, this had been his home for many years, its familiarity was comforting. "It has always been my dream to help others, and this is the best way I may do so. Yes, I am trained by one of the oldest butlering schools on the planet, yes, I have a certificate that indicates such- one that I will proudly hang in the room you have set aside for me. It cost me more money than I truly had, and I can tell you now, it is most certainly more than adequate."
Rohirr nodded once more. "It occurs to me that I've never discussed strict hours."
"With respect, sir, you may consider me as always available." Alex replied. "For as long as your family will have me, at least, for as long as you are able to pay my wages, I will work for you. After all, I am doing what I have always wanted."
Rohirr smiled. "Do not be surprised if we end up adopting you, then you'll never get away."
They both laughed. Alex did not stand idly by for long, nor did Rohirr. At the latter's insistence, they both worked together to ensure everyone's long-term comfort.
