2023.03.21 00:03 quarterly-update Spider mites got me down

I've been battling spider mites for months on my rubber tree. They were gone, now they are back.
I started a weekly soapy wash routine then sprayed with Captain Jack Dead Bug. I also dunked several in soapy water each time. After five weeks, no new bugs, so I stopped.
Now almost two months later, they are back. How did this happen? I was so careful about washing and spraying. The frustrating part is that these mites don't seem to spin webs until they are very, very established. I have examined all my plants with a magnifying glass twice a week for pest activity. They came out of nowhere within the last few days on my rubber tree, who was Patient Zero last time as well. No leaf damage yet, just webs. I must have caught them right as the population boomed but before they could set up a ton of webs.
I just powdered my rubber tree with diatomaceous earth and got into every nook and cranny with a paint brush, plus also powdered the soil. I'm going to let it sit for a few days then will wash.
I bought 100% cold pressed neem oil (and tossed the pre-mixed neem oil since it allegedly does not work) and am planning a spray of Dr. Bronner's peppermint soap and neem. All my plants have systemic granules in the soil as well.
I'm just so tired of dealing with them. Some of my plants are huge so it was a difficult process to wash them weekly. I was so careful last time and was positive they were gone. And there wasn't a single sign of them until there was a surge of webs. What did I do wrong?

2023.03.21 00:01 Tricky_Warning_0115 Squat / Trap Bar Deadlift Form Checks

Links are below. TLDR: For squat, two main questions: (1) how do I fix my knee wobbles and foot rocking and (2) is there anything else I’m missing? For DL: just generally does it look okay?
squat Deadlift
I can see that my knees wobble which I thought I had fixed by focusing on screwing my feet into the ground but clearly I have not fixed that. And I’m also seeing that my heels are lifting to allow my foot to rock in. I’m not sure if those two things are related. I’m also not sure how to fix those (is it ankle instability? Hip instability? Both?)
Besides the knees/feet, what else is going on? Because it seems off to me. I feel like I’m maybe leaning forward too much but obv you have to lean forward to counteract the weight on your back. Maybe I need a side angle to be able to tell if I’m leaning forward too much but I think the bar stays around my mid-foot.
Towards the end of the set my hips start to rise before my shoulders but I’m less worried about that bc it’s just as I get tired and I’ve been adding in more accessories to strengthen my quads.
I don’t have pain but I’ve noticed some lower back tightness on squat / deadlift days so I’m trying to check my form.

2023.03.20 23:58 JoffreySkywalker Melina vs. Dan: Forgiveness vs. Retribution, an analysis of whether or not Steven should forgive Brittany for her slander. Dan's truth is my truth.

TLDR: With the fires of hell in the background, slanders have been uttered. Friends of the stream step in to offer their opinion. Dan says to let it Burn. Melina says to offer an Olive branch. With everything mired in controversy, I cling to one truth. Dan is always right.

Recently, Dan and Melina stood behind each should of Destiny whispering conflicting advice in his in each. One could easily imagine him as Edard Stark with Dan and Melina taking the place of Maester Lewin and Catelyn Stark behind him. Each had a different view on the situation which represent fundamentally different views of interpersonal interactions.
Recently, Destiny watched Brittany make several statements on one of her streams. In Destiny's view, these statements were blatantly false and miss-represented both his positions and his life. Her claims were as follows.
1.) That Sneako is more open minded that Destiny
2.) That Destiny's life is not sufficiently public for him to give relationship advice.
3.) That Destiny does not own up to his mistakes while Sneako does
4.) That Destiny has a bad relationship.
Destiny found these claims to be outlandish and entirely unjustified for the following reasons.
1.) Sneako is highly judgmental of lifestyles not his own while Destiny clarifies that his lifestyle is not for everyone.
2.) Destiny has one of the most public lives on the planet.
3.) He has publicly admitted to mistakes he has made and changed his mind on issues.
4.) His relationship with Melina is very god.
Chaeiry joined and did what could only be described as devilish pot stirring. She explained that that the reason Brittany took this position was because Destiny was not showing her sufficient attention and defending her like he did with certain other orbiters who had much more inflammatory opinions.
With the history set, two diametric opinions would emerge from none other than first Orbiter Dan and Destiny's final boss, Melina. Melina offered the opinion that this happened because Destiny has neglected to put up boundaries and that people believe it is ok to do this sort of thing. In order to fix it, Destiny must talk to Brittany and set explicit boundaries. Dan rejected this instead insisting that Destiny shouldn't have to put up boundaries to expect his friends to be a "decent human being" and not tlk shit about a friend. He further stated that a good friend such as him and Mr. Moutin have and would never do something like this. Finally, he came to the conclusion that if someone does something like this it says that they are not a good friend.
One key element to Melina's position is that she believes Destiny acts unassailable. In fact his confidence lends itself to people naturally acting like this, that they believe they are given cart blanche to do what they will, to have their way with him. Now enter Eurodite. She agreed with a softer version of Melina's position, that Destiny's aesthetic, of hard confidence and roguish edgy charisma contributed to the actions of Brittany. Her and Destiny disagreed with the severity of Brittany's actions.
The critical disagreement seems to come down to the expectations of decency that can be applied to another person who you are friends with without putting up explicit boundaries. It is my belief that Dan is 100% correct (per the usual) on this issue and Melina is fundamentally wrong. To start with the most obvious example, it's not required for you to explicitly apply a boundary that you don't want to be shot for your friend to not shoot you. That's something that can be assumed in human society.
It's more than fair to apply that to a baseline expectation of individuals to not do things which are cruel to your person or reputation without justifiable cause. Even with justifiable cause, slandering a friend with no factual basis is still an extreme step. All of her critical claims are demonstrably untrue. Explicitly setting boundaries is for actions that aren't wrong in a general sense. Rather they are for things they may or may not be wrong pending the person. Slandering a friend is bad to everyone. Something like telling edgy jokes is not wrong but something that makes some people uncomfortable and thus warrants a boundary. The distinction rests on a usual/universal bad vs. a bad that is mostly contingent on a person.
Now one might ask, are Melina and Eurodite completely wrong? Are they forcing Stephen into a perpetual cycle of destructive friendships? It is not my belief particularly given Eurodite's track record as a high performing orbite content creator. However, their focus is largely on why Brittany may have done what she did, rather than the fact of the matter of the claims she made or the best course of action for Destiny.
For example, it may be the case that someone does a bad thing for a strange set of emotional reasons or reactions to atypical behavior from another person. However, that does nothing to justify the action. It may be meaningfully different than malice in another way. However, it does not change the outcome of the action or even necessarily reduce its repeatability. As a matter of fact, it could increase the likelihood of it happening in the future.
Now some will argue that this is mealy a reflection of a general dislike of Brittany's aesthetic and a general hyperbolic dislike of Orbiter's. This is not accurate. I would defend almost any other Orbiters and apply the same standard consistently towards them. Orbiters are good if they provide an understandable opinion and a reason for that opinion. It's been argued that almost all the Orbiter's are terrible. However, there are legions of friends of the stream to consistently argue in good faith, with opinions that most may strongly disagree with but aren't outright falsehoods that say cruel things about people.
It is important to point out that Destiny has a wide variety of great relationships with other streamers and content creators. One false narrative concerning the stream seems to be that Destiny is on bad terms with even most of the content creators with different views i.e. gets stabbed in the back by most people. However, this is false as the Destiny stream has one of the largest casts of any stream. In fact, it would be difficult to find a creator with fewer existing bridges. While certain extremely crazy people have burned bridges, this is obviously due to the nature of the people. Those people are regarded as completely crazy by the entire internet. The vast majority of people are chill. It isn't because of boundaries. It's because the people don't respect basic norms. There likely isn't a world where Brittany wouldn't do something like this even if boundaries were put up explicitly.
It is also fair to note, that even characters such as Farha that have done actions that are bad, did actions (take down the post) to correct wrongs and asked multiple times if Destiny would like to see the footage before release. It is important to draw distinct lines between characters who's public interface has reasonable explanation and immediate corrective action and characters who's statements are entirely unreasonable with no corrective action.
Now to the question of forgiveness. There are always pragmatic advantages to maintaining bridges. Bridges are easier to walk on than air. However, this forces possible falsehoods and fakeness. Some bridges are lies that collapse when walked upon. In those cases the empty air may seem like a more honest option.
But a choice remains, to forgive or cut ties. This choice resides in the keeper of the stream. I know that Dan is never wrong. We all know it.

2023.03.20 23:58 AznLynLe Men, what do you consider is a fair home role when your SO/Wife makes the most money?

So for context, my husband (36) and I (40f) have been married for 6 years, been together a total of 7. When we first dated, I was finishing up my last 2 years of college. I was becoming a secondary teacher. Because of certain circumstances, I was forced out by my ex-roommate and my husband offered me to move in with him and his two roommates, which they liked having me around anyway and we never had any problems. In our relationship, my husband was the one who made the money to pay the bills, etc. He supported me emotionally, mentally, and financially. And I wholeheartedly love him for that.
Eventually, I graduated and officially started my teaching career. He was a blue collar worker at the time and tried various jobs. I supported him mentally and emotionally because, to me, if I found my calling, then he should too! I didn’t mind earning the most money for the time being as long as we’re ok. We weren’t EXTREMELY comfortable, but we were happy and good.
One of his dreams is to be a professional gamer. In the last 3 years, we went to tournaments, built our own local FGC, and then some. We have Friday Fight nights where he has his friends come over to play matches. He recently got signed on to a small pro group (which is a win for us). He does live streaming on Tuesdays. He was really trying to put himself out there, and I’m ok with it.
He became a substitute teacher 2 years ago, and even got a job working 3pm-9pm in the produce department at our local grocery chain recently (the pay is $14.50/hr and that’s pretty high by our local standards). Him being exposed to the school system, he was recruited to be a volunteer coach for the up and coming teen esports team at the high school I teach at. I encourage him to do it since he has a lot of experience in esports.
Now, to the main point. We had always shared chores, and never really complained. However, this year is different. I ended up getting a second job because teachers really don’t get paid much. To explain, my end year stub shows that I made ~$52,000 for the year. BUT THAT’S GROSS PAY. What I actually brought home for NET PAY was ~$22,000. That is to pay for bills. I made the same amount of NET when I was still in college and was working part-time at $11.50/hr at 20 hours a week. Anyway, I work 40+ hours for school. And I work about 22+ hours at my second job. So, baseline, I work about ~62 hours a week. It got to the point where I missed out on chores and laundry and everything else.
My husband’s substitute job is a “make your own hours” type of concept. He actually gets to pick and choose what days, the school location, and grade level. His consistent job is with the produce department. He works 30 set hours a week. For the last 3 weeks or so, he didn’t really pick up any sub jobs.
Last night, he was complaining about chores and how he’s always the one who does them. I admit, there were times that I said I would help out, but didn’t follow through because I was tired and sleepy or tired and forgetful. We both got frustrated with each other and had a small argument about chores.
Honestly, what is the official fair home role when I make the most money and work the most hours? Do we still do 50/50? Or should he be pulling more weight around the home? I really need some perspectives and clarification from men.

2023.03.20 23:54 Papa_Swish What are some of your playthrough ideas and restrictions that you enjoy doing? I had some thoughts and wanted to hear some of your own, so please feel free to share them.

•'Import Regulations' - Common restriction where trucks can only be used in the region that it was created/sold in, so no Kolobs in Tennessee or Derry Longhorns in Taymyr for example. It keeps the aesthetic of each region accurate, makes the game a little more difficult and changes up the meta by forcing you to use American or Russian trucks that you wouldn't normally. Non-native trucks like the F750 found in Kola can be used for the duration of the map and then transported back to NA, or you could restrict those vehicles to the regional areas you found them in. (So for example, the F750 found in Kola Peninsula could be restricted to only being usable in other Russian/Asian maps as this was the part of the world you found it in, however you could also purchase a second F750 in North America if you also wanted to use one in that region aswell.)
•'This isn't Forza' - Trucks must use the driveshaft configuration that they came with from the store, so any truck that is buyable in RWD and has the option to upgrade to AWD, cannot do this. Diff Locks can be equiped, but installable AWD cannot be equipped as this is not the kind of modification that you could reasonably make to your truck without serious mechanical know-how. (Interesting for early game, but would become redundant as most 'Meta' trucks come with switchable or permanent AWD from the store.)
•'Closer to Nature' - Raised/Active suspension cannot be equiped on trucks, but scouts can still use theirs. This changes the 'Meta' since many high-tier trucks are forced to use much smaller tires, the Grad for instance can now only equip 43" tires. (Same problem, many of the post-Taymyr trucks like the Azov 5319, Azov 73210 and DAN all use their largest tires already, so they are barely affected. Risk of creating reliance on a handful of unaffected trucks as everything else becomes significantly weaker)
•'Rubber is Rubber' - Highway, All-terrain and Chained tires are the only tires available, unless a truck is forced to use something different or comes with better tires from the factory. Places much greater emphasis on having a crew of trucks at all times as it is much easier for an individual truck to get stuck or lack the grip to cross tough terrain on its own. Also causes more 'deadlock' situations where trucks are fully stuck and need help to be freed. Somewhat more realistic given the isolated locations. Commonly overlooked trucks like the P512 and P16 may become very powerful in this setting. (Genuinely concerned if parts of the game can even be completed given this limitation)

2023.03.20 23:54 RedemptionSock Sticky situation I need help

So I created a LinkedIn account using Gmail, I accidently used a very old email. If I remember correctly, many MANY years ago, you were able to make a Gmail using a [email protected] account.
I accidently made a linkedin account using that email. Now the [email protected] account does not exist anymore unfortunately, I can't make it again as you cannot create a accounts. Nor create a alias using that domain region.
Gmail now migrated/ignored that email and made me create an actual Gmail in its place, so now I can't even log into that damn linkedin account nor can I even create the password as it requires me to input it to change the email within the settings when I was logged in.
So if I try sending any reset password instructionss it simply won't go through the supplied email, since it does not have an inbox anymore.
I don't know what to do or how to go about this.
For extra info, the account name used the damn Gmail username which was my gamertag. I tried submitting my identity to gain access but they said my name doesn't match with the gamertag :/ no shit.
Quick summary: the email I gave linkedin does not have an inbox thus unable to create a password or even request for a password reset as I can't even recieve those emails and I need a password to change the email I'm the first place. I messed it up even more by migrating my account to a normal Gmail so now I can't even auto login.

2023.03.20 23:53 The_Mootz_Pallucci data.table merge Creating Unexpected NAs

Hi all,
Right off the bat - I don't have the code to show you, it's at work.
I'm updating a script to a simpler reporting process.
The inputs to my code are identical in every way except size - we were able to make some changes earlier in the process while maintaining the format of the data inputs to this script in question.
So I'm trying to merge two data tables on multiple ID variables like this:
df_new <- merge(df_A, df_B, by.x = (col1, col2, col3), by.y = (col1, col2, col3) all.y = TRUE) 
df_A has a column called Counts (integers) and it is filled with some 0s and a bunch of numbers (there are counts in some date ranges and not in others). df_b does not have this column.
My production version of this code segment is identical. I've compared the two scripts (there are some changes believe me!) and the production version outputs what we expect: some values are the numbers as they were in df_A, and NAs otherwise because they do not exist in df_B.
However, when I execute the merge, df_new has the proper columns, however, the values in the Counts column are all NAs. This has impact down the line in an Excel pivot table which needs these values.
To be clear: The production code and new code segments are the same...I'm pretty confused lol.
I've read the data.table docs and read the merge function's docs and I couldn't really figure out what the problem is. I googled around a bit too, and most of the similar issues come back to original askers not understanding the docs. (Maybe I'm in that boat too)
Some things I have done: compared data types in df_A, df_B, df_new between the production code's data tables against the new code. There were some differences. Some places had char data types when they should have been factors. I didn't think this would be issue, but I set chars to factors to no avail (cause why not?), I also set some nums to ints. I've also done some !anyNA()s, unique(df_new$Counts), etc. There should be a million or so non-NA values, and there are none - quite strange. I have also checked step-by-step with intermediate datatables and dataframes to see where things go awry, and it is exactly at this step.
I would greatly appreciate any help in terms of a straight comment, articles, explanation of the docs, or something of that nature.
Thanks everyone =)

2023.03.20 23:53 321EMMA123 How to make PS app have no effect on your online status

Hi everyone,
Before the update, I liked being able to use the app to reply to messages and see who's playing, without it making me appear online or offline or whatever condition I left my playstation in last
People say you can change it in privacy settings, but I do not have this setting.
If I'm online then turn my playstation off, then open the app it'll show me as online. If I set it to appear offline in the app, I turn my playstation on again and it's appearing offline.
Does anybody know how I can change this? I want it like it was before, where the app has no effect on appearing online or offline

2023.03.20 23:52 AwkardPierre WIBTA if I didn’t go to my birthday trip?

Apologies for format/language/ etc.
I (19F) have my birthday in a couple of weeks. The equivalent of spring break is a week just before my birthday. My father (54M) recently bought an apartment near the beach, and because he’s excited, every other weekend we have off he plans a trip there. My parents have been divorced since I was 13, and I live with my mom with my siblings.
Now, my dad has a girlfriend (48F, let’s call her R) of like 5/6 years, and she’s divorced with children too. The divorce hit me very hard. I have had fights with my dad because of the divorce (like I feel that he’s not there for me when I need him) but since we’ve been going to therapy it’s been better.
One thing we’ve never agreed on is his girlfriend, R. Our relationship, which we were working great to mend, has hit several bumps because of her. At first I told him that I didn’t want anything to do with her. He respected it at first, but then started to say that he really wanted us to meet. Tbh I didn’t really want to, but I agreed because I knew it was important for him.
I met her, and she was okay. (We had an issue because I had established a boundary for meeting R, and it was violated). My dad said he wanted all of us (my siblings, his girlfriend and her children) to be able to go out together and interact. Again. I didn’t want to, but I’ve been trying to find a middle ground, because apparently I need to put up with her and her family if I want to see my dad.
Anyway, for my birthday, my wanted to take me and my siblings to the beach apartment for a week. I was really excited for this, but then he told me that R’s youngest (13F, calling her B) has her birthday 5 days before mine. So of course, my dad wants to bring us ALL to the beach.
I told him that I didn’t want her R and her daughter B to come (her other two sons won’t be able to come, but they’re invited as well), because I want to spend my birthday trip with HIM. He replied that if R and B don’t come, then they’ll be alone all spring break.
We’ve been back and forth on this for a few weeks now, but we’re getting nowhere. Honestly, I feel like he’s not listening to me and I’m seriously debating on not going. I don’t want to and share my trip with someone else. It might be immature but im tired of not being heard. So, WIBTA?

2023.03.20 23:51 OldPersonHerder My husband (M34) and I (35F) have 3 dogs. The one that he brought to the relationship bit my finger so badly last week that I had to have it partially amputated and I need help navigating how we address it while minimizing hard feelings around his beloved dog.

This is a tough one and I know it seems cut and dry but it always helps me to crowdsource my life advice, so here goes:
We’ve been together for three years and got married in October 2022. Very happy and emotionally safe relationship so far. We each brought one dog to this union, and adopted a third together last year.
His dog, Sally, is a 45 pound female Border Collie mix who has been an amazing dog for about 8-9 years and was his ride or die prior to me. Never shown any aggression whatsoever before about 2 weeks prior to this incident. My dog, Bob, is a 12 pound toy Aussie who I have had for 7.5 years, and our adopted dog, Patty, is about 25 pounds, a year and a half old, female, and some sort of Collie mix. They have all three been together for a year now and seemed like a good pack.
A week or two before the bite happened, something in their dynamic changed, and Sally started showing aggression toward Bob when he would get annoyed with Patty and even make the slightest growl at her—she wants to play nonstop and it is tiring. Bob has never bitten/lunged/anything more than a little growl at Patty. After a week of Sally showing small signs of annoyance or aggression, it escalated to Sally viciously attacking Bob when all three dogs are present and I am there, even if there was nothing obvious to me going on. That’s just it—all three dogs have to be there and so do I. She went after Bob 3 times total.
Right now, my brother has kindly agreed to keep Sally while we figure it all out. I’m understandably very distrustful of Sally now, for both myself and my beloved Bob, and fairly traumatized from her literally biting the tip of my finger off and costing us several thousand dollars between the ER, surgery, and hand therapy. I think Patty is definitely part of the problem with the dynamic, but why now?
I guess my real question is, where do I start for guidance on safely reintegrating Sally into our family, or how do we know that all three dogs together won’t work? A dog behavior expert or more training for Patty to try and calm her down? I love Sally, too, and it’s hard to explain how much my husband loves her. I’m definitely seeing my therapist for my own issues surrounding this but would love some advice on how to handle the dogs. Part of me thinks one needs to be rehomed and in my opinion it’s only fair for that to be Sally, since she hurt me so badly. But I’d like to explore all our options.
I appreciate anyone reading all of this and giving me genuine advice.
TL;Dr: One of our dogs bit me while attacking another of our dogs, and this dog who bit me was my husband’s first love. I ended up getting the top half of the bitten finger amputated. Is the only choice to rehome one of the dogs?

2023.03.20 23:51 Devilate [ALL] Thoughts, lots of thoughts.

I finished playing LiS 1. I'm left with a hollow feeling, like when you just watched a really good TV show and don't know what to do with your life after it has ended. At the same time it's a good feeling, because what an amazing story this was! I loved it from beginning to end.
Someone enthusiastically recommended this game to me in the past and I was too ignorant to immediately listen and play it. Well, months or even years later I decided to trust their judgement because I was feeling nostalgic and wanted to revisit the feeling of friendship that I haven't felt for a while. This game gave me all these feelings. The deeper into the game I got, the more I felt attached to the characters and wanted to know more, wishing it would last forever. Unfortunately it didn't, like barely anything ever does. Actions always have consequences. A small decision can have major effects. It is just the way things are and will always be. This was shown to me when I noticed the consequences of Max trying to save Chloe's father, and it left me in tears. I made the tough decision in this fragment, and was so relieved when Max went back to the present and found Chloe, alive as ever.
It made me think a lot: if I could revisit the past, knowing everything I know now, would I change anything? I don't know. I'm leaning towards a negative answer. There's no way of knowing what any small decision could result in, what domino effect I could be causing by changing anything at all. You can't save everyone. Some things are possibly just meant to be, whatever happens just happens and it is what it is. Imagine if I were to change anything to try to make life better in the present, I would still be left with the knowledge of all that has been, but is undone now. Does that make sense? It wouldn't change my feelings, because I would still be the same person in my heart, in my head... I can't undo my knowledge of these events. In an alternate reality I could step out of the front door and cross the street 5 minutes earlier than I did in the main timeline, and I could be run over by a truck just by making that seemingly insignificant decision. Nothing feels insignificant now. I have regrets, but it's how it's meant to be. All you can do is move forward. The present is the present, the past and the future should be left where they are.
I'm left with a question. There are many stories from people that had a sudden gut feeling and it saved their life. When a sudden urge to move to a different room saved them, or for no explainable reason they suddenly felt like they had to check up on someone and this also saved that person. Or even feeling, knowing, that someone has just died, without being close to them. How does this happen? Does this say anything about alternate realities? What does this mean? I have no answers, but it's an interesting question to me.
This was just a rant about all these thoughts, since I can't really discuss this topic with anyone I know. Anyone who wants to add anything to this discussion, feel free to do so.

2023.03.20 23:49 HowardAmon Now Playing: End Of Amnesia (Released: July 2001)

What memories/thoughts does this album stir up for you?
My favorite tracks from End Of Amnesia:
Track 1: End Of Amnesia
Track 2 : Color Of Water
I was all geared up and ready to go Bounding for to leave my mountain home with a sky of blue Between the leaves and the color of the water was green High over the sea. “Do you have to leave so soon my boy? The winter time ain't even begun….” “Well I'd stay awhile,” I turned to say, “But the color of the water is grey and I'm going away…” 
Track 5: Bad Dreams
Oh! Every night I'm dreaming of you and we're weaving through a crowded room And I ask you to be my best friend too and then I lose you. On a steamer with a small-city band I chase you through the room again and you're gone before the next dance ends (I don't what it means) Bad Dreams But I should do what I want to do and I should dream about whoever I want to dream about But every night I'm calling out your name and every time you get away. Oh and I'm damned before I even begin but ill chase you through the room again And I'll ask you to be my best best friend and then I lose you. 
Track 7: Silverline
Track 8: Flaming Heart
Well I'm trying hard to pass the time but I just got more time to kill You know the flaming heart can't get his fill But the flaming heart will try and try as he will And the flaming eyes I had are gone, they went out with the thrill You know the flaming heart can't get his fill But the flaming heart will try and try as he will Oh, I got a flaming heart Oh, I got a flaming heart I gotta roll like a tire I've got a love that's mighty like a rose And the flaming stars I had are gone They burned out over the hill You know the flaming heart can't get his fill But the flaming heart will try and try as he will Oh, I got a flaming heart Oh, I got a flaming heart I gotta roll like a tire I've got a love that's mighty like a rose 
Track 9: Carolina
"Where are you going?" for the 250th time. "I'm waiting for a sign" "Well it looks like another line" And I'm walking backwards to the place where I come from But that ain't enough, no you want me to run. I used to feel like California with baby's eyes so blue Now I feel like Carolina: I split myself in two And I'm walking backwards from Chicago through Washington But that ain't enough no you want me to run. "Better watch your soul it'll leave you like a hundred bucks." My friends said “Stick to your guns” but instead I just got stuck And I'm walking backwards looking forward to getting done But that ain't enough no you want me to run

*భూతభృన్న చ భూతస్థో మమాత్మా భూతభావన: \*

🌷. తాత్పర్యం :
*అయినను సృష్టించబడిన సమస్తము నా యందు స్థితిని కలిగియుండదు. అచింత్యమైన నా యోగవైభమును గాంచుము! నేను సర్వజీవులను పోషించువాడను మరియు సర్వత్రా వసించువాడనైనను, సర్వసృష్టికి కారణుడనైనందున ఈ దృశ్యమానజగత్తు నందలి భాగమును కాను.\*

🌷. భాష్యము :
సమస్తము తన యందే స్థితిని కలిగియున్నదని (మత్థ్సాని సర్వభూతాని) శ్రీకృష్ణభగవానుడు ఇచ్చట పలుకగా దానిని వేరు విధముగా అర్థము చేసికొనరాదు. వాస్తవమునకు విశ్వము యొక్క భరణ, పోషణములతో ప్రత్యక్షముగా ఆ భగవానునకు ఎట్టి సంబంధము లేదు. కొన్నిమార్లు “అట్లాస్” తన భుజములపై భూగోళమును మోయుచు, అట్టి కార్యములో అలసినట్లుగా మనము చిత్రములలో గాంతుము. ఇదే భావనను శ్రీకృష్ణభగవానుడు విశ్వమును భరించుచున్నాడనెడి విషయమును మనము ఊహింపరాదు. ఏలయన తన యందే సర్వము స్థితిని కలిగియున్నను తాను మాత్రము వాటికి పరుడని యున్నానని భగవానుడు ఇచ్చట పలుకుచున్నాడు. గ్రహమండలము అంతరిక్షమున నిలిచియున్నది. ఆ అంతరిక్షము భగవానుని శక్తియైనను, అతడు అంతరిక్షమునకు భిన్నుడు. అతడు భిన్నముగా స్థితుడై యున్నాడు. కనుకనే “జీవులందరు నా అచింత్యశక్తి యందు నిలిచియున్నను, దేవదేవుడైన నేను వారికి పరుడనై యున్నాను” అని శ్రీకృష్ణభగవానుడు పలికినాడు. ఇదియే శ్రీకృష్ణుని అచింత్యమైన యోగవైభవము.

“భగవానుడు తన శక్తి ప్రదర్శనము చేయుచు ఊహాతీతములైన అద్భుత లీలలను గావించుచున్నాడు” అని వేదనిఘంటువైన నిరుక్తి యందు తెలుపబడినది (యుజ్యతేఽనేన దుర్ఘటేషు కార్యేషు). శ్రీకృష్ణభగవానుడు దివ్యములైన వివిధశక్తులను కలిగియున్నాడు మరియు అతని సంకల్పమే వాస్తవమైనదనెడి భావనలో మనమాతనిని అవగాహన చేసికొనవలెను.

*🌹 Bhagavad-Gita as It is - 343 🌹\*
*✍️ Sri Prabhupada, 📚 Prasad Bharadwaj\*

*🌴 Chapter 9 - Raja Vidya Raja Guhya Yoga - 03 🌴\*

*05 . na ca mat-sthāni bhūtāni paśya me yogam aiśvaram\*
*bhūta-bhṛn na ca bhūta-stho mamātmā bhūta-bhāvanaḥ\*

🌷 Translation :
*And yet everything that is created does not rest in Me. Behold My mystic opulence! Although I am the maintainer of all living entities and although I am everywhere, I am not a part of this cosmic manifestation, for My Self is the very source of creation.\*

🌹 Purport :
The Lord says that everything is resting on Him (mat-sthāni sarva-bhūtāni). This should not be misunderstood. The Lord is not directly concerned with the maintenance and sustenance of this material manifestation. Sometimes we see a picture of Atlas holding the globe on his shoulders; he seems to be very tired, holding this great earthly planet. Such an image should not be entertained in connection with Kṛṣṇa’s upholding this created universe. He says that although everything is resting on Him, He is aloof. The planetary systems are floating in space, and this space is the energy of the Supreme Lord.

But He is different from space. He is differently situated. Therefore the Lord says, “Although they are situated on My inconceivable energy, as the Supreme Personality of Godhead I am aloof from them.” This is the inconceivable opulence of the Lord. In the Nirukti Vedic dictionary it is said, yujyate ’nena durghaṭeṣu kāryeṣu: “The Supreme Lord is performing inconceivably wonderful pastimes, displaying His energy.” His person is full of different potent energies, and His determination is itself actual fact. In this way the Personality of Godhead is to be understood.

*🌻 24. Science becomes Philosophy 🌻\*

*When I say, “I am living, because I have a purposive existence, and not merely an aimless motion,” I have to explain what I mean by purposiveness. It is interesting to see how we go from step to step into greater difficulties. What do we mean by a purposive existence? It would mean, at least in outline, the consciousness of an aim in front of oneself. Now, again, we see where we are moving, dangerously. From science, where have we come? To be conscious that there is an aim before us is to be purposive.\*

*Life is, again, inseparable from a state of consciousness. And in the end, biology, also, takes us to the same thing on which physics landed us. Somehow we cannot escape the dilemma of it being impossible for us to be without the principle of consciousness, in whatever we do, in whatever direction we move. The basic sciences—astronomy, physics, chemistry and biology—have a common thing to say, finally. In the end they tell us the same thing and by this proclamation of a truth, which is beyond their own jurisdiction, they, as sciences, are exceeding their limits. Science becomes philosophy.\*

*🌴. The joy of his mystical trance (samādhi) is bliss for the whole universe.🌴\*

*But this sūtra talks about the stage where the yogi is still awake while entering into the stage of samādhi. This means that he has to be a Self-realised yogi as he has to look at the universe through the eyes of Śiva. This can happen only if the yogi feels that he is Śiva Himself. To transform as Śiva, he has to repeatedly affirm with strong conviction and total dissolution of duality. Truly identifying oneself with Śiva happens only in the stage of nirvāṇa. Nirvāṇa is the stage where one’s ego is totally blown off. It is the cessation of existential being.\*

2023.03.20 23:49 Lizlazxy Avoidant Attachment Style vs BPD

My girlfriend and I have been together for over a year, excluding a rough break (supposed to be a breakup) in NovembeDecember. The split was about how I felt I was being manipulated a lot, given she had many of those behaviors when she would get upset with me. I never thought that it was on purpose. She would panic and do anything for me to stay. It feels reversed now. She grew up in a house that wasn't very emotionally connected, her family likes to pretend nothing is happening rather than talking about an issue. She's trans, so she grew up hearing "boys don't cry" and all that fun stuff. Given all of this, she has an avoidant attachment style.

When we get upset with each other, she leaves and isolates herself, and my world shatters. It feels so overwhelmingly painful that I beg her to stay, which she says drains her even more and makes her want to leave more. I get stuck, not being able to choose between self-sabotage and angrily leaving or clinging and begging to stay(both of which do not help her want to stay). I am so tired of my black-and-white thinking, but it feels like it's all I've ever known. I don't think I could come up with something in the middle if I tried.

Today, I realized that she's my FP. I feel like so much hope is gone, I want to spend the rest of my life with her and she does too. We have amazing times together and the arguing is happening WAY less often compared to before the break. I'm so proud of how far we've come but these arguments are fucking difficult and very painful for me. Now knowing that she's my FP, I'm terrified. I know what happens next. I've done this before. I know what happens during episodes hurts and drains her, but she had only seen splitting. I'm afraid that once she truly sees how attached I am, she will leave. I want a future with her so badly, and she often expresses the same thing. I don't know if this really is a death sentence to our relationship, given she's my FP and she's avoidant. I can and will put the work into healing and fixing my behaviors, but I feel there's only so much I can do before she has even more reasons to break up with me.

I want to get to the point where we don't argue at all, and that will take a lot of hard work from both of us, but I would love it if anyone could help me out with healthier ways to communicate, and especially ways to self-soothe. At that moment, it feels like nothing will help, but I am well aware that if I cope, I will feel better. What are your guys' favorite coping skills that are easiest to use in the moment, rather than after calming down a bit. I need tips for being able to healthily communicate myself, and also maybe help encourage her to stay so we can talk things through rather than ignore them. Has anyone ever had a successful relationship with this dynamic? All I want in the world is for this to work, she is the love of my life and I have no doubt at all that she feels the same. Things are just hard sometimes, and we want to work through it.

2023.03.20 23:48 candiedalmond 13 month old sleep trained baby now waking once a night

Little one was previously sleep trained at 5.5 months. Worked like a charm and was sleeping 11-12 hours each night unless sick. Ever since she turned a year old, she wakes up 1-2 times a night, but then will randomly sleep all night once or twice a week, despite not doing anything differently. She has also been refusing/fighting her second afternoon nap since around 11 months old.
She wakes at 7-715, naps approximately 10-12/12:30 and we try for a second nap but she mainly refuses, so I usually give her “quiet time” in the crib for 45 mins or so. We’ve tried shortening her first nap, waking her earlier (6:30am), later bedtime, etc. But she would rather be up 6-7 hours than take that afternoon nap. Luckily, she’s chill and she doesn’t get fussy or meltdown (she only does that if we try to get her to nap) however, we’re tired of the night waking. We will admit, we don’t do the timed pop ins bc it usually makes it worse now that she’s older bc she now has separation anxiety.
Any tips/advice? The last time she slept thru the night was two days ago and she woke at 715, napped from 1015-12:30 and refused her second nap but went to bed around 7pm. She used to take 2, two hour naps no problem and would still sleep at night. But that is all but a distant memory now.
What are we doing wrong?! Do we need to push her morning nap out further to even out the day? She seems to get tired and will rub her eyes/yawn around 3 hours from waking up most days. I think it’s obviously time for one nap and I should stop trying t get a second one, at the very least?

2023.03.20 23:47 peter123yeah Jumping the gun on FF7R criticisms

One thing I've noticed with a lot of the bigger criticisms of FF7R is that people seem to make them with the assumptions that they know where the next games will go using their knowledge of the original game as a bases, in a way that wouldn't be possible in an original trilogy where only the first game is out yet. I really hate these types criticisms as it requires both the person who dislikes Remake or likes remake to basically have to guess if they are even issues or not.
What I mean by this is when people make criticisms of they've wasted the sephiroth boss fight using it now instead of later, or that they're not going to use death in the games because characters are alive right now that shouldn't be, if the ghosts are needed etc. The massive issue with making these criticisms is well... the 2nd and 3rd games are not out yet... so how does anyone know what they will and will not do with any future plot outcome, either good or bad. A good easy example to use is the sephiroth killing the snake, which is meant to show how strong he is. People say that scene is gonna be ruined in the next game since we've already seen how powerful he is in FF7R.... but we don't know how that scene will play out in Rebirth, and what changes will be made for it to make sense... or even if it will playout at all, it might just flat out not be in there.
I have no issue with people disliking FF7R with things that are actually in the game they actually played. Some people prefer the og plate drop, or blood scene, dislike the pacing, etc. These are things that actually happened in the game, so if you dislike them, then fair enough. Honestly the idea that you were going to prefer everything the remake did more, was just impossible anyway.
I wondered to myself why people have got so bizarre and grasping at hypothetical issues that could happen in the future games rather than waiting for those games to actually come out. The best conclusion I could come to is that people were so safe playing the remake going, and this comes next, then this, then this. That the fact that it's possible that they can't do that going forward scares them, and when trying to get a handle on their feelings of the game, use the only information they have, which is the og to try and plugin that info into the next games of the remake, even tho that information might, and most likely is, completely incompatible. They will then say the next remake game is bad cause the info in the remake may not be compatible with that, even tho the remake could have changes that does make the remake 1 & 2 compatible.
The funny thing is a lot of issues people have with the future of the story may in fact be right... but can we please bloody wait till the games are out before we decide that one way or another.

2023.03.20 23:46 No_Software_5459 My Experience with Stigmavision

I have a story of the discrimination I experienced: I have Bipolar disorder and had a psychiatrist that I had been seeing for a good 8 years, we had a great working relationship, I had never had any issues with communication or any concerns what so ever. I went in for my normal check up appointment and was questioned by my Doctor about a perscription that was written and sent into my pharmacy (I had been seen at another clinic by another perscriber) and after confirming that this medication was sent to my pharmacy for me, she (my doctor) flipped her whole demeanor, I could feel the mood shift heavily impacting the vibe between us. I was being seen that day for like I'd said for a normal regularly occurring appointment schedule that I've been doing for the last 8 years and at this visit we were supposed to adjust my medications to a higher dosage, instead she tells me that she wants to consult with her colleague and get a second opinion, I'm confused by this statement because, well why? She asks me to set up another appointment and to be expecting a call from her colleague so that she can feel confident before making any changes to my treatment,(what? Why?) So I scheduled a follow up and the next day had a video visit with her colleague and let's just say I ended the visit abruptly due to the offensive discriminating treatment I was receiving. He questioned me about why I'd needed my mg for my perscription changed and stated "it has no further bettering effects after the dose I was currently at", I told him that "it does have a different effect to me personally I can feel the change and it helps better". He then questioned about the perscription that was written by the other clinic and why I was prescribed it and I'd told him my story of why it was prescribed it and told him it was not filled yet it was just sent to my pharmacy (it was suboxone), and he started accusing me of wanting to use my medication mg increase to "feel euphoric effects" that it would not make a difference at a higher dose. I told him he was out of pocket and I would not be talked to like that and ended the video. My regular doctor did the "second opinion" twice more and at those appointments now she'd requested me to take a urine sample (never ever ever had I needed to do this before) she gave me no logical reason for why she wanted me to visit the lab to pee so I refused and ended writing her an email telling her how unexceptable she was being and I was not trying to get pills from her to get high, that I was coming to her because I have a real problem and need help with it medically. The next thing I know im receiving a letter stating she dropped me as a patient. The kicker to this is because she dropped me and lied about why she dropped me I was now unable to see another provider to receive treatment for my mental health which means no more perscriptions that I literally need to be functional and productive in life, anyways and my primary care doctor said he does not feel comfortable prescribing me medications that are out of his jurisdiction he is like a body doctor only not mental health. And I cannot go to another clinic because of the insurance I have its is so widely used that all other psychiatrists in my state and the next are filled to quota. So it has been almost 2.5 years that I have received care for my mental health which has not been an easy go in life. I did file a grievance against her and requested for her to get training in bed side manor and diversity and discrimination but that didn't do much for my care. So that's my lived experience with Stigmavision individuals its not right that even medical professionals have biased assumptions on things related to substance use.

2023.03.20 23:45 DaddyDersch The calm before the storm… 2 days till FOMC. 3-20-23 SPY/ ES Futures, VIX, DXY and 10YR Daily Market Analysis

The calm before the storm… 2 days till FOMC. 3-20-23 SPY/ ES Futures, VIX, DXY and 10YR Daily Market Analysis
I have over the last month now of using supply and demand gotten tons of question as to why im using supply and demand and most importantly if I will stop using them and go back to just support/ resistance. I have been day trading off supply and demand for the last month now and honestly it has been the best tweak to my strategy yet. Here is an example of just how accurate and good Supply/ Demand can be…
This is a micro scale using supply and demand but it just goes to show you (and this is just one of many examples) of how exact and how accurate supply/ demand can be. Why am I showing this? Well as I said over the last month now that I have used supply/ demand I have had a lot of feedback about why people don’t understands why I made the change and why I continue to use it… this right here shows the power of supply and demand on a micro scale… it is just as accurate as we have seen on a daily and weekly scale too.
Taking a look at SPY supply and demand we don’t have much changed yet… the biggest thing to note is that we are in the process and closer to forming a new supply (Resistance) than we are to forming a new demand (support) for not this tells me that my upside target remains to be 405.2 versus a breakdown to 385.87. However, once a new supply is put in (SPY needs to close a red day in order to do this) then we will start looking at a breakdown back to 385.87 area.
For now we remain stuck between 385.87 and 405.2 with really no direction yet.
Been trying to get a better grasp on where we are going on daily price action. We just have had such a volatile movement that honing in on any sort of real direction and trend has been difficult. AS of now we remain in this black bear channel. Despite the bulls losing daily 8ema support Friday they actually have retaken that support and now closed back over the daily 8ema. The biggest thing to watch here is the daily 20ema which sits at Wednesday resistance of 396.1. This is the most probable upside rejection and resistance area to watch.
While today was not an inside day… it is interesting to note that the last two days of price action still remain inside of Thursdays daily range. This tells me honestly that we still do not have an actual direction.
In all reality if you think about it with FOMC in two days now there is not much of a reason for markets to move bigly one way or another. Most probable unless we see a risk off move EOD tomorrow into FOMC would be to see SPY hold between 385.8 and 396.1 heading into FOMC.
SPY Daily Levels: Supply- 405.17 Demand- 385.87 -> 376.67 Support- 390.9 -> 389.3 -> 385.7 Resistance- 393.8 -> 396.1 -> 397.8
Now something that is very intriguing about futures daily is that it actually did establish a new demand (support) today at 3945. However, what should be strongly considered is that the supply/ demand did not fully “reset” before establishing this demand. What does that mean? Well it means while yes this demand is significant and we shouldn’t ignore it… the actual supply (Resistance) established at 3995 and demand (support) that was established at 3895 last week is much stronger and way more important.
What also is even more interestingly about this is that we are still in the process of waiting for a new supply (resistance) to be established. This would much like SPY take a red day tomorrow in order to do that.
If we were to get a red day tomorrow we could see a new supply (resistance) established at 3988 below previous supply (resistance) at 3995. IF that happens that shows just how strong this 3988 to 3995 supply (resistance) level is. That would to me be a good place to look for more long puts.
However, there is a case to be made that if we have a green day tomorrow and we push higher than 3995 that we are going to establish a new higher supply (resistance) somewhere between 3995 and 4055. If we were to do that then I would fully expect to see a move back to 3995 supply (which would become support) and look for a new demand (Support) to be put in before we push higher again.
That sort of price action of establishing a new higher supply (resistance) before coming down and taking out a previous supply (which becomes support) is extremely bullish and shows a very nice uptrend.
Versus when we see a lower supply (resistance) established under previous supply (resistance) which would indicate a bear trend.
This next week with JPOW speaking Wednesday for FOMC is going to be quite the turning point here…
Taking a look here at futures daily tells a slightly different story than that of SPY. Mostly because futures unlike SPY shows the full after hours movement. What truly is incredible is how much futures (after hours/ pre market) has been moving. We had nearly a 102 pt movement total today (that’s about 2.3% total movement).
What we have here is still a overall bear trend which that bear trend would on a daily time frame be broken if we break through 3995 tomorrow. IF you remember and as is highlighted here by the black channel we have been trading within 3995 to 3888 for 9 trading days now…
If the bulls are able to breakout and close over 3995 tomorrow… and JPOW doesn’t kill the market… we very well could be looking at a breakout to 4055-4095 area.
However, if the bears are able to hold us under 3995 tomorrow and bring us back under 3945 there is a pretty good chance that we will see a retest of 3888 support.
Honestly times like these are the hardest to trade as we have a technical based move and potential, however, that move could completely be negated by a new event (FOMC). Now there has been a lot of times where these events actually move with the technicals, however, it is too risky to take that chance.
Overall here right now 3995 tomorrow is the key pivot level and key close to watch.
Futures Daily Levels: Supply- 3995 -> 4055 Demand- 3946 -> 3895 Support- 3962 -> 3945 -> 3920 Resistance- 3995 -> 4020 -> 4055
There used to be a time… before 0dte everyday and the overall detached from reality VIX… that I would take a play on SPY strictly based on what the VIX was doing and what the VIX trend was…
IF I was going to take a play based on a trend of the VIX I would be in a short on Spy looking for a decently red day tomorrow on SPY… why? If you look at the last 6 trading days on VIX we have a very nice trend of big green day -> red day -> green -> red -> green -> red -> ?
If the current trend continues… we would 100% see a green day on the VIX which would take markets lower. Now we might actually get that too because tomorrow is the day before FOMC and we might see risk come off and some downside hedges be put on…
It also is interesting to note that the daily 8ema is still support on the VIX. I also find it interesting that the VIX rejected 28.4 today too. This would be the 4th test and rejection of 28.4 in the last 7 days… This also is the 7th day to close over 22.9 on the VIX in a row… we have not see that many days close over 22.9 since the beginning of November.
As you can see much like on SPY/ Futures we are still in a massive breakout/ down triangle on the VIX too. Key support is 23.85 and resistance of 28.5.
This is now the third day in a row that we have seen the dollar drop and actually the 7th drop out of the last 9 trading days for the dollar… what is really interesting is that in general spy rises at the DXY drops and SPY drops as DXY rises…
SPY has been green 4 out of the last 9 trading days… so as of now SPY and DXY do appear to be trading in sync… what also i am monitoring is that I pointed out this breakout triangle on DXY last week and said that would be very interesting to watch. I am watching now that this support has broken and DXY is selling off if we see a bigger push up on Spy… If it does we may have today with this breakdown been getting an early hint at a rally on SPY. Now of course this can all change with FOMC in two days though…
Interesting enough on the 10YR today we actually had an impressively large drop initially to 3.291% which is the lower the 10YR has hit since September 2022.
Now it did have a massive recoil (as in rates went back up). So from a technical stand point… if one could actually TA the 10YR yield… this MASSIVE dragonfly doji is actually a huge reversal candle… this large wicked doji after the 2 weeks of downside should actual signify that the rate of the 10yr is going to see a large push back up.
This will be interesting to watch play out too.
Pretty solid day here to start the week off green. I wasn’t quite able to get any bigger wins and got stopped out on the morning breakdown that hard recovered… honestly the hardest part about today was that this was one of the slowest bull trend days that I have seen in weeks.
It was clearly (in the morning and after the mid day drop) bullish and was riding the EMAs. However, it was moving so beyond slow that it was tough timing the ideally entry. Today besides I believe one rogue candle though was actually one of the more smooth days we have had in a long time. We have become so accustomed to these wild reversal happy and erratic days that it was kind of refreshing to see a smoother trend day with no “surprises.”

2023.03.20 23:44 gothbias How to handle customers that are angry over prices?

TLDR at bottom. Brevity is not my strong suit.
For some background, I am a waiter at a small, locally owned business that is very new. I consider our prices to be very fair and affordable, but I’ve had two encounters with people furious over the price.
The big issue here is both times I didn’t know how to respond. My knee jerk reaction is to offer a discount but we aren’t allowed to give out discounts unless there’s something wrong with the meal or if the customer is aggressive and we’re trying to hurry them off the premises. My boss said giving out discounts to everyone complaining about price sets a precedent that we can’t afford to make and that they can see the price on the menu before ordering.
The first time a gentleman came in and asked me if it was 3.99 for a chili dog with onion, mustard, and a side of fries. I politely informed him 3.99 is for a chili dog and a side of fries and that a modification costs a little more unless a it is a condiment. He kinda sarcastically laughed and said that he always comes in here and normally spends $7 on two hot dogs with those specifications and last time he was here he spent around $8. He handed me the receipt (which listed me as his server lol) and I literally just looked at it and read it back to him, telling him it’s an additional .32 for onions. He got mad and just said “fine I just won’t get those anymore.” And then bought something far more expensive. I just replied “I’m sorry to hear that sir.” My boss was not here for this one.
Later that day, after my boss had come in, I had an issue with a couple. At risk of giving away where I work, I’ll just say the woman ordered our “specialty” hot dogs that have heavy toppings and comes with two hot dogs which is just under $7. The man bought two chili dogs and added mayo and onion. The speciality hot dogs don’t come with a side but the regular both come with a side of fries. When I informed them of this they said they realized last time they are more than satisfied with one side of fries and only wanted one. Choosing not to utilize a side does not change the price, something that’s pretty explicitly stated on the menu.
When they came up to the register (I also run register) they were very agitated that their total was $16 and some odd cents. I politely started breaking down the prices for them when the man interrupted me to say “on your menu it says you get an extra hot dog for $1.50.” I was a little baffled by this because I’ve worked here a while now and have never heard of this. I politely told him I didn’t believe that was the case but that I’d ask my boss (who was sitting at the bar like a foot away). As I turned to ask he gets loud with me and says “You should check your menu. That’s what it says. Check your menu.” I did what he said and tried my best to keep my composure as I informed him it is $1.50 for a side on the entrees, not an extra hot dog. He huffs and puffs and yells that he always gets the other hot dog for $1.50 (which I know isn’t true as that’s literally never been allowed) I finally can’t deal with him anymore and say I can’t do anything about the prices, I just work here, and my boss is sitting right there if he would like to discuss it with him. Of course he continues to berate me, throw the money at me, and leave.
In my mind $16 for four hot dogs, toppings, and fries is not bad at all, but that’s not what this is about lol. Is there a better way to handle it? My boss said I didn’t do anything wrong (and was pretty upset about how they treated me) but I just felt like I could’ve handled this better if I had an idea of how to even reply to people like this.
TLDR: I have no clue how to handle customers angry about prices. Discounts are not an option. Any tips?
