2023.02.03 03:45 DubbyaEmB 11th Gen Potential RECALL / Lemon problem

(contact Honda at 800-999-1009 if you have this issue) I have an 11th gen 2022 civic sport sedan. In short: when the air vent setting is put on head/feet, virtually zero air comes out of the head vent (like you set it to windshield/feet). I bought it brand new, and also previously had a AC leak issue fixed at same dealer I took it to for this. The dealership agreed and confirmed that what I described is correct, BUT ALSO that MULTIPLE tested cars for reference (same year and models) did the exact same thing. I was advised to contact American Honda Corporate (number at top) about this due to nothing the dealership could "fix" due to it being a designed problem. When I called AHC and described the issue, and after put in hold a few times, I was told that this "is not a design issue/problem and it is a FEATURE"...really? It is designed to not work? Then the guy started questioning the validity of the Honda trained service workers and that there is no chance of Honda fixing the problem due to it being a "feature" or doing a buy-back. So now I am starting the process of starting the Lemon Law claims (submitting written offer of a buy-back, and then for arbitration if not taken back). I urge you all to see if your cars have this issue as well, and if so, contact the number at the top, tell them the vent issue, and for them to fix their problem that is not a feature. I have my documents from their dealer workers who urged me to go this route, but others have to as well.

2023.02.03 00:47 Bearjerky Trailhawk electrical issues

2015 Trailhawk Cherokee. Jan 17th vehicle wouldn't start, accessories turning on but engine wouldn't turn over. Dash was giving a message along the lines of "check blind spot monitoring system" but no other info. Checked battery voltage and it was low so I attempted a boost. Boosting didn't work but at this point I noticed that the red immobilization light was on. Tried a different fully charged battery, that didn't help and the vehicle continued to drain that battery. Vehicle isn't under warranty anymore but I had it towed to the dealership as at this point it was above my paygrade. They confirmed the battery was dead and put in a new one which took them a full day and a half. They then claimed that the codes indicated that the BCU was bad and ordered a new one. After multiple calls checking on the status they just told me that they swapped the BCU but the vehicle still won't start. They say they checked the spare tire compartment and it appears there was quite a bit of water in there and it looks like a leak somewhere caused a short somewhere. I'm beginning to question the competence of the techs at this service department, anyone have any insight into what direction I might point them so as not to have them waste another 2 weeks and 2k of my money throwing cheese at the ceiling and hoping it sticks? Anything in or around the spare tire compartment that would potentially cause a short like that?

2023.02.03 00:43 RatatatatatatouilIe Worth trying to fix "unfixable" misfire problem?

Hi /MechanicAdvice,
Would really appreciate some advice on this as it stressed me out while the car was under warranty, and now that it's not it's stressing me out even more.
Around two years ago, I purchased a V6 Pentastar 2019 RAM 1500 with 52,000 miles. I started having problems with misfiring shortly after. The thing is, the engine only misfires under heavy load, and when I say heavy load, I mean I have to floor it pretty hard to get it to misfire. I brought it to the dealership about six times for this problem, and every time they would say it's fixed, I would drive off, floor it, and come right back due to another misfire. Eventually they sent the engine to heavy tech, and I thought that fixed the problem. Looking at the service records, I received the following repairs in my 5-6 visits to the dealership:
2 Camshafts, Plugs, Coils, Arm Valves, Tappet Va, Gasket Cy, Arm Inclu, Solenoid
Now, at 73,000 miles, the problem is appearing again. This time after blinking, the engine light went solid, read as Cyl #1 misfire. I hoped it was fixed at the dealership, and this was just routine plugs & coils. Replaced plugs and coils, no luck, still misfiring under heavy load. Shop actually refunded me, and told me I'd have to take it to the dealership as it will need more engine work. Went to the dealership and tried to see if they would fix it under warranty, they won't.
I really don't want to start dumping a ton of money into engine work, especially with the track record of them fixing a ton of stuff and the engine still misfiring. I'm just scared I will pay a couple thousand to get repairs done, and the engine will still misfire, basically wasting money.
Should I try to get it fixed, or just drive light and avoid misfire? If I don't drive hard, it doesn't misfire. I only really drive hard enough to get it to misfire when I'm trying to see if it will misfire.

2023.02.02 22:37 Funkybadger3 Two new tires on drivers side?

I got two new tires to replace my front tires which were completely shot. Long story short the dealership put the two new tires on my front and back drivers side and the two old (but still good like 6/10) tires on the front/back passenger. I was under the impression that the new tires should always go to the back, but I wanted to see if there was any logical reasoning they’d do that before I spend a couple more hours going to get it fixed. What do y’all think, should I go back and make them fix it?

2023.02.02 18:53 Autistic_Idiot69 I can’t tell if my (26F) bf (26M) is hiding something, or if I’m going crazy.

Hi! I’m going to break it down into everything that’s happened, because I feel crazy due to past events following this recently one with my bf, to hopefully keep it short. 1. He still had dating apps when we still got together, claimed to have forgotten, but kept getting messages and/or marches. 2. He got matching rings with a customer from his old job. I was the only one who saw the issue, not even her boyfriend cared. I had to explain what matching rings mean, and why I was upset. He threw it away, tho. 3. I had to keep telling him how it hurt my self esteem when I would turn to him and he would watch thirst traps 5 times because he found them hot. They’re always skinny girls, yet he claims skinny girls are “gross.” Also, every time I have an issue with people, he always says “ew, I hate skinny people”, instead of reassuring me. 4. A girl from high school reconnected with him recently. I had asked why I saw red hearts being sent, and his response was “ew, she’s married with 3 kids!” Never said nothing else. 5. We were going to work, and his car showed his ex’s name in his contacts with “😍😍😍” at the end. He claimed they haven’t spoken in 3 years, and he forgot to delete it. 6. 6. Now yesterday. He was in the dealership and left his phone. The same ex had texted him on snap, and I noticed she also snapped him 6 days ago. I brought it up, asked why he didn’t tell me she messaged him and why tf she wasn’t blocked after the last time I saw her name. Claimed to at first not remember why she texted, then said it was to know where I got pierced. Didn’t even try to console me, or reassure me. He tried telling me he would trust me if it was the other way around, because we can unlock each other’s phones and he can see I love him. He said I can go through his phone, but he also knows I’m super uncomfortable with going through phones. I feel like I’m going crazy because everyone is saying he’s too open about issues like this to be doing anything, but sirens keep going off no matter how much he tried to prove himself. I’m not sure if I’m the issue, or if all the issues are just screwing with my head at this point. I just need help understanding his side and my own thoughts.

2023.02.02 16:54 Hot-Low-6974 What does financing a car typically look like?

Update*** I had a repair estimate scheduled for this afternoon and was mentally preparing for them to say the cost of repairs are more than it’s worth… que frantic Reddit post.
Cost to repair is probably more than it’s worth (~$2,700) but i truly trust this mechanic and while nothing is guaranteed, he thinks with the repairs I’d get at least another 3 years out of the car. And said with the way the market is right now (not even knowing my finical issue) he’d recommend the repairs over a new car.
My mom has agreed to use what would have been a down payment on repairs with the agreement that the monthly amount I would have had in a car payment goes to paying off debt / savings.
I truly appreciate everyone that took the time to respond, it gave me a lot to think about and this mini panic about needing a new car was a good wake up call.
Original post:
Hi there! Hoping someone can help me get an idea of what to expect when trying to buy or lease a car from a dealership.
Long story short, I’m 33 years old and have been privileged to be gifted every car I’ve ever owned (3 cars). I inherited my current car about 9 years ago and it’s served me well- but it’s time for a new one. Trade in wouldnt be much- if I had to guess $1200 is being generous lol
My question is : what does the car buying / process entail once you start getting into the loan stuff? And how involved is a potential co-signer?
A little more info if relevant:
I’d like to buy or lease a newer SUV. I make a decent salary (~$75k), my income exceeds my living expenses by a decent amount on paper but I’m not great with managing my money and I have a lot of debt (student loans + credit cards).
my credit score isn’t great but it isn’t terrible- high 600s last time I checked. But I’m worried my debt to income ratio will be an issue. I also have no cash for a downpayment.
I’m confident I could make the payment each month- as I always pay my bills on time. I just don’t prioritize saving / paying off debt (I know, I know). So I’m nervous that on paper it won’t look good lol and in the eyes of the lender I realize I’m not the ideal customer.
That being said my mom has offered to help with a down payment (~$3k). She stated since she recently helped my sister with her wedding and I “work hard” she’d like to help. She knows I’m not great with money but not the extent of the debt I’ve created… She has amazing credit and pretty sure she’d be willing to co-sign if needed. I’d rather not go that route though- but I will if needed. I just don’t want the lecture I know I’ll get for the next 20 years lol I also have about 10k in an old employer 401k I could cash out. I’d rather not due to penalties and taxes- but it’s an option. I have more in my current employer 401k that I wouldn’t consider touching.
If you’ve made it this far - thank you. I guess just looking for what to Expect, things I should consider and advice you have. TIA :)

2023.02.02 07:56 Gessler555 My ME4 Story Theory

If this theory was already presented, I didn't see it so forgive me.

In short, here it is: Control ending will be canonized. Cerberus will replace the Systems Alliance as the organization representing humanity. Oh and Humans & Turians will be going to war against each other.

Based on the teaser, its quite evident that humans (possibly Cerberus, given the colour scheme) are building their own Mass Relays. There's also some hints of a possible antagonistic relationship with the Council, as a result of something Humans possibly kept secret from them. This leads me to believe that the Control ending will be canon, wherein Shepard dies but supposedly gains control of the Reapers. But the exact mechanism of how this happens isn't very clear. Based on the visuals in ME3's control ending it's evident that Shepard's consciousness directs the Reapers to rebuild the Relays (only they have the know-how to do that) - however, I think Cerberus (under whoever is TIM's successor) manages to 'hack' Shepard's consciousness so that the rebuild process leaves humanity with an unfair advantage. The relays being built in other species' systems either don't work as well or won't last very long. Why couldn't the other races figure out sooner that this is happening or do something similar on their own? Cuz Shepard is human and Cerberus had a greater understanding on how to manipulate the human mind. Cerberus may also use the rhetoric that TIM was right all along (that control is possible) to present themselves as better than the Alliance when it comes to charting humanity's future. The Council eventually finds out (probably through a Spectre) what the human government (under Cerberus) is doing, and decides to put a stop to it. When diplomacy fails, Turians are the Council's go-to intervention force, so they start attacking human Relays & other sites and this quickly spirals into a full-blown war as Cerberus keeps the truth from coming out as doing so could lead to them losing power. This would also be a path to realizing their dream: uniting humanity against the aliens.

The game's story could revolve around a multi-species special group formed by Liara (using her Shadow Broker resources) with the goal of stopping the war by breaking the Cerberus shackles over Shepard's consciousness - in the hope that Shep's mind, once freed, will let the truth be known, cause humanity to overthrow Cerberus, and end the war. A further 'ticking clock' narrative tool could be that Cerberus is working to enhance their control over Shep's consciousness so that they can directly control the Reapers as weapons of war - which would totally annihilate the other species. Initially they could only effect small changes within a goal already set by the consciousness.

2023.02.02 02:15 Clemicus Arguments built upon mist and misallocated resources to fight mythical monsters

I read an article in ukpolitics earlier today and afterwards sorted the comments by controversial. I was reminded of a thought I had a while back prior to Andrew Tate getting banned from all these platforms.
There was this assertion Tate was influencing boys for the worst. That he was dangerous because something something increasing misogyny
This is the part in the article that got my attention:
Alex Davies-Jones received abuse over email and directly to her office, soon after she raised the issue at prime minister’s question’s earlier this month. At the time, the shadow technology minister told MPs: “Teachers are now having to develop their own resources to re-educate boys who are being brainwashed online by his deeply toxic messaging.”
Which reminded me of all these claims of "Incel extremism". Just looking up on it now, I remember reading an article on Schools Week (from April 2021: https://schoolsweek.co.uk/schools-see-rise-in-incel-extremism-prevent-referrals/ ) and a odd article on a website called Safer Schools (from October 2020: https://oursaferschools.co.uk/2021/10/29/incels/ )
Schools Week:
A government counter-extremism commission last year called incel subculture a “new threat”, alongside resurgent far-right ideas.
Its report described incels as an “overwhelmingly male online community”, with many members advocating violence against women. Five people were shot in Plymouth last year by a man who reportedly shared misogynistic views on incel forums.
Believers dub themselves “involuntarily celibate”, blaming women for not having relationships with them.
Safer Schools:
The ‘incel’ terminology and movement started from a very different place than where it is now. It originates from a website that was set up by a woman in the 1990s as a supportive place for people who found it difficult to gain sexual experience. Since then, incel communities have become a place filled with hatred and misogyny, which often champion violence towards women, including in the forms of rape and murder.
On the face of it, it just seems to be a type of populism or they're just reaching for anything to try and explain it, without going beyond the surface to try and actually try to understand if anything is indeed going on and what the cause of that might be.
Replacing certain ideas within it and the cause of the issue. In short, they've changed it's due to Incel extremism to, it's caused by a supposed misogynist.
Lets separate the recent claims. On one hand, you've got the claim boys, or young men, are angry or there's this increasing belief, attitude or, action. For whatever reasons, this time around it's tied to a single individual. But what if it's down to what these boys are experiencing in school? What if it's down to how they believe they are being treated indifferently or badly due to their sex?
You've got two things, a claim boys are x and this is being caused by y. But the basis of the argument is no more than a assertion that that's happening. There's no breakdown of the viewing demographic of Tates' videos. There's nothing solid to suggest boys are not only watching his videos but they are being badly influenced by them. The claim itself cannot be quantified
As Tim Pool might say, it's a nothing burger. The cause of these problems will probably be different next year -- it could be down to another individual, a 'dangerous' belief or idea or, form of media this time around
After typing all that out I've highlighted a elephant somewhat -- because there's little or no basis for the argument, anything built upon this argument is nothing more solidification of bad beliefs. I'm not sure how else I could frame that. With regards to another poster who first came to mind (I may clarify further in a possible edit), this is a critic
The biggest problem I can see with all of this is, the focus is on a supposed problem. If there's any basis to that it isn't a problem, it's a symptom and the actual problem is being overlooked, which most likely is how boys are being treated and what their outlook on the world is.
They've been side stepped for a few decades and there doesn't seem to be anything to ease any issues they maybe facing. If things continue as they are going, those may become worse, when all the focus is put on trying to fix a non-issue which in turn makes boys because more pessimistic and they withdraw more from the world, which in turn creates more problems
Think I've typed out enough words. What are your thoughts?
PS after typing all this out I can't think of a better title, sorry

2023.02.02 00:29 MrBKainXTR "ATLA Chibis Vol 1: Aang's Unfreezing Day" (Comic for Young Readers) Official Discussion Thread

FULL SPOILERS allowed in this thread. As a reminder spoilers for this comic outside this thread must be marked until a month after the book is released.
Dark Horse, Amazon

This comic is written by Kelly Leigh Miller with art by Diana Sim, and ATLA writer Tim Hedrick serving in a supervisory role. It is the first in what I assume is a new line of ATLA comics featuring a chibi art style and focused at young readers (younger than the audience for other avatar comics).
Release Date: This comic released February 1st in comic stores and maybe some other retailers. Other mass market retailers have a currently listed release date of March 28th. If you are purchasing from a local retailer (as opposed to say Amazon) you may want to specifically ask when they are getting the book, as it may not necessarily be March 28th.
Canon: Is this book canon? I don't think bryke or anyone have made statements one way or the other. The old animated chibi shorts, and the old short chibi comic "Gym Time" have always been regarded as non-canon. But this comic isn't exactly as ...idk "exaggerated", "fantastic", "clearly non-canon" as those examples were (in comparison to the show). Additionally the story may be so inconsequential that its status in canon doesn't really matter much. Feel free to comment your thoughts.

2023.02.01 22:26 spoonloads P0420 CEL first oil change after engine rebuild - 2019 Tucson

Got my engine rebuilt due to engine failure at 80k km, now I’m at 85.5k km and did my first oil change and shortly after I got check engine light / p0420 - Catalyst System inefficiency below threshold bank 1.
Dealership told me it’s $180 for a diagnostic scan and if they deem it’s warranty, it will get waived.
Anyone experienced anything like this after a engine rebuild?

I’ve seen it posted here before, but damn it’s annoying… When pumping gas the tank will constantly trigger the gas pump as if it is full. I find myself twisting and turning the pump handle around until I can find a spot it won’t trigger, which is typically a short term solution. Has anyone found a resolution to this? Dealership able to fix this issue? Thanks in advance

2023.02.01 21:58 mrmausers I turned in my two weeks, and coworkers are saying I’m getting punished for it.

I work at a powersports dealership in Georgia. We sell motorcycles, 4wheelers, etc. After putting in my two weeks, I was moving a customers vehicle, I scraped the front bumper slightly and immediately informed management of the damage. Normally I wouldn’t care because the bumpers on these things are always scraped, but this guy just bought it a week before so it was pretty spotless. Management was pissed and said the company won’t be picking up the bill and I have to pay it out of my already short check due to leaving mid pay period. It’s going to be like $700 and it’s not like I’m making much to begin with. Coworkers are saying that it could be fixed with a paint marker and a blow dryer for $5 and they are making me pay for it just because I’m leaving. Can they legally pull my wages to pay for things not damaged under what would be considered ‘gross negligence’

2023.02.01 17:35 Skadi793 Will the EV market implode --consequences for investors?

Many analysts have insisted that EVs are the future, that car manufacturers like GM, Ford, and Toyota need to do more to move into this space. But from what I see in the data, this entire sector could easily implode within 2-3 years, and simply doesn't have a future in the US. Why?
  1. China produces close to 60% of all EV batteries--the US has virtually no domestic construction of these devices
  2. The DRC accounts for 70% of all Cobalt mining, and that country is in the Chinese sphere-of-influence (they joined the belt-and-road initiative).
  3. The US does not have any meaningful source of Colbalt, Lithium, or other elements needed for the manufacture of batteries. It depends entirely on imports
and then we have other factors:
  1. EVs are scarce due to supply-line issues, manufacturing capacity, and logistics. There are very few available from any brand within 100 miles of where I live
  2. The price of EVs is going up, not down, and dealerships are routinely slapping 15-20% markups over MSRP for these vehicles, outraging consumers
  3. Outside of Tesla's charging network, other networks are plagued with reliability problems, and implementation has largely stalled.
  4. The US electrical grid, in many areas, simply cannot support widespread EV adoption
  5. With rising interest rates, recession looming, and a weak economy, the average consumer is in no position to shell out $55,000 - $80,000 for an EV
The math doesn't work anywhere here. A hostile power controls the import and manufacture of the components necessary to build these things, they are too expensive, and the grid won't support them.
Goin forward, I am going to look at shorting the stocks of any car manufacturer who is heavily investing in EVs, and the more money they throw at them, the more attractive a short they become.
This whole thing is going to implode with tens of billions in write-downs and widespread plant-closures. Am I wrong?

In the event that Maginito increases its interest in HyProMag Limited ("HyProMag") from 42% to 100%, CoTec is required to exercise either the CoTec Maginito Conversion Right or the Mkango Conversion Right within 120 days following such acquisition, if any.
If the Convertible Loan is not converted prior to the Longstop Date, the Company will be required to repay the loan within 60 days following the Longstop Date, provided however that if the Maginito Investment Closing does not occur prior to 15 March 2023, the repayment date for the Convertible Loan will be extended by one year.

2023.02.01 14:20 Jaded-Wrap-2234 I wanted to be petty during my step-sister's wedding but karma got her and my family bad

I am using a temporary account. When I (29F) was little like 7 years old, my dad cheated on my mother with my step-mom, Karen. After her divorce, my mom moved away and got married again. I was always under the impression that my mother abandoned me and that's what my dad told me too. Karen had a daughter at that time who was 5, Mia. Mia and I were kinda close growing up. But when we both hit puberty and our personality was different. Mia was the typical girly girl. She developed beautifully. She was basically like Cassie from Euphoria. She would get all the attention. Even my relatives preferred her more than me. I was basically a nerd. I was interested in sports but I was told that I do not look bad and I am very attractive and pretty in my own way. But I was overshadowed by Mia. My dad was someone who is an opportunist. Whenever he would see an opportunity for him to shine, he would take it. Even if it meant sidelining his own daughter. He saw that Mia got more attention than me so he invested everything on her. I was kinda jealous ngl. But I wasn't really that bothered because I believed if I did something good I would be appreciated. So, I studied hard and got into a prestigious university. That was the only time my father threw a party for me because I was the first in the family to do it. But Mia was jealous of it. So, anyways, during my last year of high school I started dating Tim (30M). He proposed to me when we were sophomore in college. But we decided to wait till our graduation. So one day during our during semester break, I went to his home and I saw him fucking Mia. I was shocked to say the least. I remember I was crying and screaming at him. I could never forget the smirk on Mia's face. That's when I knew Mia was a b!tch. So, my dad and step mom knew about it and guess what. My dad told me to "forgive them". His logic "Tim fell out of love with me so he fell in love with your sister. You should give them your blessing instead of being petty." I shouted back that "Of course you will say that because you cheated on mom." My dad and me had a screaming match. He told me he would disown me if I do not accept them and come to their wedding. I remember that I stormed off and I cried for like days. That's the moment I realized I was alone. My dad didn't care if I was dead or alive. But thank god I had friends who I could count on. I started therapy after a friend of mine pushed me to it.
It did help a bit but in my mind I wanted some revenge. I wanted to be petty and make her regret. I started thinking what I could do. My initial plan was to wear white on her wedding day. But then I ran into Mia's ex, Jay. Jay and Mia have been one of those couples who were on again off again. Mia exploited Jay a lot. The last time they broke up was when Jay caught Mia flirting with one of his friends. But there was a lot of history. So, when Jay learned about Mia and Tim he was a little angry. He kept saying he wishes he could just take revenge on all the times Mia has done him wrong. So, I had another plan. I asked him to be my plus one at her wedding. I know Mia still has feelings for Jay. It would piss her off. But we agreed that after that we would part ways. So when the wedding came, I was not in the wedding party. My dad was cordial with me because I wasn't creating trouble. So I went to her wedding with Jay and I was wearing a bright red dress because I read that red means you slept with the groom. It was also over the top. I might have made some heads turn. When Mia saw me with Jay her face turned pale. I was purposely being very touchy with Jay like whispering in his ears, touching his shoulder, dancing with him very closely. I swear Mia was just as red as my dress. I was also asked to give a speech. I kept it short "Thank god I do not have more sisters otherwise Tim would have swapped Mia with one of them. You know he has a fetish of fucking his fiance's sisters behind her back." Me and Jay were asked to leave. The next day I was bombarded with messages and phone calls. I didn't pick any of them. As for Jay he stuck to our deal and I never saw him again. After the wedding incident, I decided I should find my mom because something in me was telling me that she didn't abandon me. It wasn't hard to find her. I found her on facebook and we started chatting. She is married and has 2 boys, my half brothers. I got the real story from her. She didn't abandon me. My father won the custody case. He used my mom's past substance abuse to take away her visitation rights too. We reconciled and for the first time in my life I felt welcomed.
I also met my step father and my 2 brothers. They are amazing people. Since then, I would regularly meet them. Two years after the wedding incident, I met a guy, Andy. We met during an alumni program in our college. He also went to our college but he was 5 years my senior. We had a lot in common. He was kind, sweet and very mature. He knows about my past and has been really supportive. He was better than Tim in every other way. He was young and had a really higher position in his job. After 2 years my sister contacted me out of the blue and told me she was pregnant and she now wants to bury the hatchets. I was very reluctant. I was afraid that she would try to steal Andy away from me as well. But Andy reassured me he is not that weak. Honestly, I do wanted to meet dad again. So, I gave it a shot anyways. I went on dinner with Andy. And to my surprise Tim recognized him. It was later revealed to me that Andy was basically Tim's boss. This is the fact I didn't know. My dad and step-mom brought me to a corner and said that my relationship with Andy is unacceptable because I am trying to hurt my sister by dating Tim's boss. I told them to fuck off. My love life is none of their business. The dinner went sour. After that I got a drunken call from Tim that he is very unhappy with my sister and that he actually wants to escape. He never knew what he lost until he saw me with Andy. I ignored him totally. Then the phones calls didn't stop. First it was my dad telling me that me dating Andy is causing tension between my sister and Tim. I told him their marital life is none of my business. I got call from my step sister who asked if she could come to my house and talk. I told her after the dinner party, I want nothing to do with any of them. That b!tch didn't listen. Instead she went to Andy's office to "convince" him to talk to me. Of course Tim saw this and accused her of trying to seduce Andy like he seduced him. Long story short, Andy had to fire Tim for his misbehave. This caused even more tension. Tim became verbally abusive towards Mia and said his life was ruined because of her. They separated. Tim is trying to figure out how can he handle the divorce proceedings.
After the Tim and Mia drama, my dad suddenly showed up in my apartment. He was bawling his eyes out that he caught Karen sleeping with his male cousin. He was devastated. So, I told him what he said to me when Tim cheated on me, "Karen fell out of love with you so he fell in love with your cousin. You should give them your blessing instead of being petty." My dad was confused. I further told him "well you taught me this remember? When I was sad about Tim cheating on me with Mia. You told me to forgive them" My father's face was rotten to say the least. Now I have two family members who are going through divorce. Tim and Mia tried to reconcile but eventually they settled for divorce. My dad did apologise to me for what he did to me and mom. I told him that he deserved what's coming for him and that I have no feeling left for him. Not even pity. If the time ever comes I might forgive him but I don't want him anymore. He will not be walking me down the aisle. Andy and I are recently engaged. We are having a small ceremony with just close friends and family.
I was only planning for a petty revenge but karma got them better. I guess it is what they deserve for being such shitty people. I know this sounds like a work of fiction but it is not. Real life is stranger than fiction. I might update if something big happens but right now I am busy with wedding.

2023.02.01 11:57 RibRubRob2 Question to the detailers

Hello all, longtime active user but I delete accounts often. I’ve been detailing fulltime over 9 months now… I started learning how to detail just 10 months ago so I went in with very little know-how both in a business sense as well as the actual detailing side of it. Long story short, I am the sole franchisee to an honest guy I met at my job who had a very solid thing going, and saw my potential as an entrepreneur through my honesty and communication skills (I turned out to be a horrible one). Alas here is my question, how realistic are you with being 100% on every vehicle? I’ve had LONG days (10hr+) of straight detailing (maintenance[7cars]), then polishing and waxing a Bentley Continental GT. Maybe it was my error in entrepreneurial skills but my guy told me when they call us “we will be there ready any moment to make money” and yes but I didn’t have a lunch that day. I didn’t get a break. And I totally fucked up the waxing stage (only) on the Bentley… client goes to dealership next day with it and they tell him we did a bad job! I am rambling but THIS is hard work, so please answer my question truthfully… it really hurt me to only see dubs online. I let it get to me but I want to know if I’m the only one.

2023.02.01 07:35 owliverqueen I realized that I am very ugly. M30

Hello. I just got to 30 and it really just dawned on me that I am very ugly. I never thought that I was attractive, but I thought I would be at least average. After my breakup with a long term relationship a few years ago, I've decided to go to the gym and shape up. It has been a year now and I'm improving, I just need to lose the stubborn belly fat with a strict diet. It's my head that's the problem. I am balding despite being young and my forehead is on the wider side. I kind of look like Megamind with my weak jaw large head. I also have large eyes and perpetual dark circles around them (I look like a raccoon or a Tim Burton Cartoon). I can't help comparing myself with other men who either looked normal enough or absolutely gorgeous. It seems some people around me are either K Pop Idols or Old Spice Models. I'm also a bit short, at 5'6, which makes the size of my head comical. I'm trying to bulk a bit so it would not be as noticeable but my baldness is making it difficult. I think I kind of look like a pug.
I have been in two dates in the past three years, and both girls ghosted me after. One of them was a friend from work (although we don't work together in the same building or compound or see each other often), but she now actively avoids me on the rare times we meet. A mutual friend told me that she does not like me and I should not bother her anymore (which I don't), the mutual friend also told me she is planning to set the girl up with someone she knows. The mutual friend also told me she was surprised the girl even went with me for that first date. So both of those interactions just made me feel that I was absolutely beneath them, which annoyed me at first but later made me realize that she was really out of my league. I just feel like I am just too ugly to find someone. Besides my physical appearance, I'm also not that good a catch in other matters. I have a good paying job but I am not rich. I also talk a lot, which my ex tells me is an unattractive quality for a man. I am also very knowledgeable on a lot of topics but I am not at all intelligent. I also kind of suspect I have ADD or ADHD because of my quirks like spacing out, hyper focusing on random things, restlessness, inattentiveness, and forgetfulness, but people just find me annoying.
I really just want to vent this out since I feel so lost and honestly just tired of it all. I posted on offmychest before and some people just told me I was being a creep. I don't really have friends that I could share this with and my family just doesn't react well to depression.
