2023.06.07 11:56 SecretNefariousness1 I lost all my money and stuff and the police didn't help

Hello everyone, The other day I was robbed by a taxi driver in the capital of my country , I had a laptop (razer 14), money, clothes and everything in the trunk of his car. We parked next to a shopping center to eat dinner and then we went to the station. When I got to the station I did not find any of my stuff, I was the only one who got stuff stolen from btw. I told the driver to wait for me so I could refund my ticket and we could go to the police together. When I came back I did not find him. I called him and he told me that I was on my own. After I went to the police they left me waiting and in the end they told me they couldn't help me. I had to beg people for money to get back into my state. I realise that it was partially my mistake of not keeping the expensive stuff such as my money and laptop in a bag with me the whole time. But it just sucks that I can't do anything about it. The stuff I lost were at least a year's salary here in my home country country.

2023.06.07 11:45 Shayiella INTJ or INFJ?

Tw: Long post
I did a lot of reflecting on how and I am. I was told that my people-pleasing habit is considered as Fe, and I tend to do that a lot, which can be my Dom/Aux function since I tend to use my Fe more than my Ni. It is because I can set my personal preferences aside for what is more rational and the more practical solution or what will serve the world's greater good, which can be quite beneficial for many as I try to give things a more unbiased approach and still tolerate despite being more convinced by my own insight and perception of things that I believe are considered Fi? Pardon me. It would make a lot of sense for me to be an INXJ as my Se is my weakest function, and I don’t use my Si as much as I do with Ni or Fi based on the regular function stack. I prefer abstract concepts and ideas by a ton to tangible and physical objects and activities. Yea, this person did compare Te and Fe; though I may be a people-pleaser, I’d still pretty much prefer the facts over the people, depending on which will serve the greater good and may judge and base based on the factual criteria. I stated earlier that I might have a well-developed Fi and may appear selfish for exalting what I need and want for myself over others. Despite appearing cold and reserved in person, I still do have an internal moral code and a good sense of what is wrong and right, but the way you said that people-pleasing is a defense mechanism as Fe kind of contradicts that it is Fi for me.
Ti is used when I base on my own understanding and insights when it comes to the subjective criteria of being interested; I can find myself being curious and wondering how one thing is interrelated with another, wanting to know the whys and hows. INFJs usually have: Ni > Fe > Ti > Se, if I’m not mistaken, right? and I feel like I can be a fit for this one considering that my people-pleasing habit is Fe, then my hunches develop over time, which is Ni, and then my tendency to be curious and wanting to know why and how something works for myself. INTJs have: Ni > Te > Fi > Se I use Ni and I have a tendency for Te; I have a well-developed Fi; Se is my inferior function; and it all makes sense for me to be in between INTJ and INFJ does it not? Though I have a well-developed Fi, my people-pleasing habit (Fe) makes it to my auxiliary function as it affects my life on a daily basis. Though I may seem logical and have a tendency to approach things with an unbiased approach, there is no doubt that I’m inclined to follow and believe in my own perceptions and insights, therefore appearing closed-off to new concepts and new ideas that are not well structured and supported by external sources. My hypersensitivity to criticism, judgement, being disliked, and tone of voice may be considered Fe. Though I cannot fully empathize with or understand the emotional situations and needs of other people, I still prefer facts over collective consensus, even if I end up choosing people over facts to avoid disputes and drama, which may be a pain in the neck later on, as I’d rather keep the peacefulness and calming atmosphere rather than being involved and engaged in arguments and disagreements over a specific matter.
But my ability to set my personal preferences and feelings aside may be considered as Te, I’m aware of how the world works and yet I want things to be in order and organized which includes peace, stability and harmony.
I can also fully express my own feelings, preferences and insights quite easily to other people. and I can be driven by personal values and beliefs which can be considered as Fi since I’m more inclined to believe in my own personal beliefs, perceptions, insights and experiences while trying hard to be more unbiased and rational though it’s difficult.
I happen to use Te and Fi too.. which makes it a lot harder for me to identify which one I am between INFJ and INTJ.
Another possibility I can consider is that I’m ENFJ since I personally think that if my people-pleasing habit as a defense mechanism and a method of playing safe against harsh judgements and criticism coming from other people is considered as Fe.. then I definitely use it a lot on a daily basis whenever I’m outside home especially when I’m at school or any other public places that may require me to mask my real identity to protect myself from harsh judgements as my hypersensitivity takes over and might trigger some of my insecurities and may cause my self-esteem to fluctuate. However, I am not people-oriented and I dislike being around others whereas I am forced by some people who consider themselves as my “friends” which I don’t really due to my lack of capability to commit and trust other people’s motives where they all seem suspicious to me.. but at the same time It may also be my enneagram 6w5 that are the causes of it. I also have a hard time trying to understand other people’s emotions and feelings, and emotional situations tend to drain me out a lot, causing me to withdraw in social gatherings and situations as I prefer to be solitary despite being engaged in my own inner world.
Please do correct and enlighten me if I’m wrong, I’m only a beginner when it comes to typology.

Protecting Your Home and Peace of Mind: Earthquake Home Insurance in California
Introduction
California, known for its stunning coastline, thriving cities, and beautiful landscapes, is also a state prone to seismic activity. With its location on the Pacific Ring of Fire, earthquakes are a natural occurrence that residents need to be prepared for. In the face of potential devastation, it is crucial for homeowners in California to understand the importance of earthquake home insurance. This article aims to shed light on earthquake home insurance in California, its significance, and the factors to consider when obtaining coverage.

Protecting Your Home

Understanding Earthquake Home Insurance

Earthquake home insurance, also known as earthquake insurance or seismic coverage, is a specialized form of insurance designed to protect homeowners from financial loss resulting from earthquake damage. Unlike standard homeowner's insurance policies, earthquake insurance specifically addresses the unique risks associated with seismic events.

Coverage and Benefits

Earthquake insurance typically covers structural damage to your home, as well as damage to personal belongings caused by an earthquake. Additionally, it can provide coverage for additional living expenses if your home becomes uninhabitable due to earthquake damage, such as temporary housing and food expenses. The coverage limit and deductible for earthquake insurance policies can vary widely. It's essential to evaluate your needs and select coverage that adequately protects your home and possessions. Some policies may also offer optional endorsements to cover specific items or structures, such as swimming pools, detached garages, or outbuildings.

Factors to Consider

1. Risk Assessment: California is a vast state with varying levels of seismic activity. The proximity to fault lines, historical earthquake data, and geological assessments of the region can help determine the risk level for your property. Evaluating the potential risk in your area is crucial in deciding the coverage you require.
2. Building Type: The construction and structural integrity of your home play a significant role in determining your insurance needs. Older homes, for example, may require additional coverage due to potential vulnerabilities. Retrofitting measures, such as bolting, bracing, or reinforcing your home's foundation, can also impact your insurance rates.
3. Coverage Limits and Deductibles: It is essential to carefully review the coverage limits and deductibles offered by different insurance providers. Consider the replacement value of your home and possessions to determine the appropriate coverage amount. Be mindful of deductibles as well, as they represent the amount you would need to pay out of pocket before insurance coverage kicks in.

4. Cost vs. Benefit: Assessing the cost of earthquake insurance against the potential benefits is crucial. Compare the premium costs with the estimated cost of rebuilding or repairing your home in the event of an earthquake. Keep in mind that insurance costs can vary based on factors such as location, construction type, and coverage limits.
5. Exclusions and Limitations: Like any insurance policy, earthquake insurance also has exclusions and limitations. It's crucial to understand what is covered and what is not. For instance, some policies may not cover landslides or damage resulting from other earth movements. Reviewing policy details and asking questions to insurance providers can help clarify any uncertainties.

Conclusion

Given California's high seismic activity, protecting your home and belongings with earthquake insurance is a prudent decision. Earthquakes can strike without warning, leaving behind a trail of destruction and financial burden. With earthquake home insurance, you can gain peace of mind, knowing that you are financially safeguarded against potential losses.
When considering earthquake insurance in California, it's crucial to assess the risk level in your area, understand your coverage needs, and carefully compare policies from different insurance providers. By taking proactive measures and securing earthquake home insurance, you can ensure that your home and your family's well-being are protected in the event of a seismic event.

2023.06.07 11:39 MacPro99 Could I get banned for this?

I am currently residing in Turkey with my family and the store prices are significantly cheaper here due to no adjustment for inflation. Gaijins policy states under Store policy 1.3:
1.3. Using a VPN or any other circumventing technology to defraud or deceive your current location is strictly prohibited and leads to a material breach of this Store Policy and the Terms and Conditions. In case of such a breach, Gaijin reserves the right to suspend or delete the Account of the User.
Now I am not using a VPN or any other technology, I am physically in Turkey right now using lira for any and all other purchases, so I should be fine changing my current location of residency to Turkey right? Or did I overlook anything?

2023.06.07 11:39 jesslov3 I feel like I’m starting to despise my brother

I’ll try to make this short as I am unsure of what to do at this point although the answer is very clear but everything is easier said than done right? But anyways! My brother moved into my husband and I’s home a year and 2 months ago. Stupidly it was my idea. He moved from California to Arizona which is a huge change for anyone especially being single with no friends. In the beginning everything was alright I suppose. I’ll get to the point. It has been a literal nightmare. Barely helps around the house, doesn’t respect the house, is immature, annoying, drinks excessively, is always trauma dumping, can’t read the room. I’ve repeated numerous times to him of several incidents and always has the excuse that he’s just so tired from work but the most recent one health issues and his mental state. I’ll give one example of what the last straw was for me. Over the weekend my husband and I went over a friends house to get in their pool. We had drove there with the idea of leaving the car there since we where going to be drinking so we did. We Ubered back home and decide to continue drinking and listen to some music. It was already midnight maybe . About an hour later we start getting calls from family members. We ignore the calls. They decide to call again. My husband finally answers because now we’re a little worried that they’re calling so late. My brother is blacked out at the bar and security is about to call the cops if no one picks him up soon. Ubers won’t take him since he’s so wasted. My husband is drunk out of his mind already. I’m a little more sober than him but still drunk but conscious enough to tell him “no you are not driving to pick him up ! That’s his issue ! You are not risking a DUI for him ! It’s not worth it. At this point one of my sisters is screaming at the top of her lungs to my husband to pick him up. I’m like nope nope idc no this is his issue! I’m livid at this point!! I try to come up with solutions and decide to have my husband call one of the our very good neighbors who are also our very good friends. Thank god they where awake. They take us to pick my brother up. Soon as we get to the bar my brother is covered in throw up and clearly unaware of anything, extremely wasted! I’m angry !!! Next day acts like nothing happens. My husband decides to have a talk with him. Husband says he acted like he didn’t give a shit about what scene he caused and obviously had an excuse as he always does. Idk what to do at this point this is not the first incident and I know it won’t be the last. I know the obvious answer is to kick him out. But i can’t seem to follow through with it because stupidly both my husband and I feel sorry for him . Any advice would help 😭😭 Also fyi he is 34 I’m 31 Husband is 35 Idk if that matters

2023.06.07 11:28 halesluvsu02 worst airbnb experience.

when my husband and i were homeless, we had jobs and were able to afford nightly airbnb stays. We never had bad experiences before this stay but the host was a 30 year old young woman. we had a nice convo when i booked the stay, she told me to read her rules as i did and that was that. about an hour later she was bugging me, triple messaging me on when my eta would be and i told her i was almost done with work and my guest and i would be approaching soon. I quickly learned she was so adamant on learning when i’d be there because she had her own set of rules to tell me that were not mentioned on her original booking! she took us through her house showing us what we could use. the bathroom, and our room. She then explained we could not leave the house whatsoever and we were basically locked in. This felt very weird to me and her rules stated no smoking and i smoke dabs before bed to help me sleep and relax me from the soreness from work and i would normally do this in my car parked away from the house at other airbnb stays and that’s always never a problem as i am given a code to the front door. Well when i went outside i told her i was getting my medicine which was sorta true and she absolutely bugged the f out started yelling at me telling me she has work early in the morning and her dog is going crazy with me being outside. I start having a panic attack, im fighting with my fiancé about cancelling the stay getting a refund, and just sleeping in our car. She then sends me a message asking me if i want her to call the police?? (we were having a whisper fight and talking very quietly) so she had to have been listening to us talk as our door was closed. At this point i’m feeling done and feeling like we wasted money we didnt have and now we have to sleep in our car. We end up leaving, my husband tells her as we are leaving that she’s crazy and shouldn’t be an airbnb host if your house/dog isn’t prepared to have random guests. She left me a nasty review of both my husband and i, lied about almost everything that went down. Said my husband looked sketchy because at that time he was struggling with a skin picking condition and he felt more comfortable wearing a bandana worn like a mask to cover some of his blemishes up. It was such a horrible experience i will never do an airbnb stay in someone else’s home with them there ever again lol

2023.06.07 11:13 Shytitmouse Apartments not enforcing disabled parking spaces?

Greetings denizens of the web. I've come to you in need. I am a tenant of an apartment complex in the state of Arkansas. I was diagnosed with bone cancer in 2020 and lost a leg (below knee amputation). It is my opinion that there are too few parking spaces for the number of tenants that these apartments can house. There are disabled parking spaces provided, however they're treated like any other spot. I work nights, so I come rolling in late and all the spots are taken rather consistently. The spaces have the paint on the ground and the typical signs on posts directly in front of the spaces. The closest space to my door is coincidentally directly under the brightest street light at the complex. So people know what they're doing. And I sympathize. I've spent the last two years biting my lip and walking the distance from the next nearest open space, handicap or otherwise. I'd guess around 150+ feet. They raised my rent nearly $100 one month before my lease renewal, so I kinda got pinched there. But, that was the last of my patience. So I've called the offices to make a formal complaint regarding the issue. I've resigned myself to call every time, every day someone without tags or placards is parked in the space. Just the space I'm interested in. I'm not playing hall monitor here, going around the complex auditing every handicap space. I'm also calling at all hours of the night, cuz that's when I'm up. Of course the call goes straight to a machine. "this call may be recorded or monitored for training purposes" "a member our our staff will get back with you during our next business hours" kinda thing. I state my name, apartment number, and the reason for calling. Ending with a polite "thank you for your time". I've got 5+ years here, and hated every day of it. But housing/rent crisis in America, am I right? Any who. I started calling this month (June). I've called and left 5 messages in 7 days so far and have received no response. I know I'm asking for eviction, but at this point any hill looks good to die on. I was just looking to prepare for the backlash and further educate myself on what rights I have and what responsibilities (if any) my overlords are legally bound to. Thanks much.

2023.06.07 11:10 AxelFooley Advice needed, i'm gonna spend a lot of money this season

Advice needed, i'm gonna spend a lot of money this season
So i joined iRacing a couple of months ago with the objective to race LMP/LMDh cars.
Right before the end of last season i managed to rank up to C Class after spending a lot of time driving GT86, MX-5 and my favourite of them all (until now) my Merc GT4.
The Caddy looks very juicy to me and i'd like to buy it and start finally racing prototypes. I looked at the schedule and the IMSA non endurance series looks perfect to me.
The cold shower was my cart after looking at what i need in order to race this season, have a look below:

OMG it's a lot of money, i can afford it financially but still it seems way too much for one like me who race for passion and fun, i'm not a pro driver not even close.
My questions are: Am i doing it right? Am i missing something? Do i really need to spend that much money or i can save on something?

2023.06.07 11:01 Afraid-Cockroach-889 I am in a situationship with a married guy for past 1.5 years and it’s taking a toll on my already impaired mental health

I am suffering from confusion and mental exhaustion and often burst into tears even at my workplace, but I don’t know a way out. Now, I mustered up the courage to post it all here. I am using different names here for privacy. I (32f) am stuck in a situationship with Alex (48m). We’re in this situationship for 1.5 years.
I belong to a conservative society where dating/relationships or premarital sex is frowned upon, so I grew up keeping that in mind. I have had several crushes since 13 but never dared to tell anyone apart from my high school best friend. She encouraged me to date since she herself was doing but I was too scared and never acted upon my feelings. After high school, I suffered from severe mental illness called as dissociation disorder and I often had maniac episodes due to which I left studies and rejoined after an year. I had not so good relation with my parents especially my father so I bottled up my thoughts and feelings throughout my childhood and early teenage years and I burst out eventually. I am on medication since then.
Due to no interaction with boys, I was unaware of their intentions and I started a long distance relationship with an unknown guy on phone, eventually my parents found out and I came to know his real self which was not good at all. He was a habitual groomer. I was yet to touch 18 then. That story was over but I got to know about sexual desire and I started playing with myself though didn’t know much about it, after a year I started searching it out on internet and next year I found a porn video, from where I learned about clit stimulation and started doing it often. I was in my early twenties then. Then, a year later during my university’s freshman year, I had developed a crush on my classmate who then became my good friend. I was devastated when I found out he had a crush on my best friend. She encouraged me to confess my feelings to him. I did and got rejected right then and there. It took me a year to move on. I limited the interaction with guys. I also rejected many proposals. My parents and psychiatrist tried to convince me to get married but I resisted and thankfully they never forced me. I finished my studies and got a job in my university. After many years of staying single, I got bored and decided to have a guy friend, thus again I started a phone relationship with Liam and since I was 30, I was not scared to meet him. We met and after hours of talking, we started making out. I had non-existent sex life before that and I badly wanted to lose my virginity but I resisted when he was penetrating and I asked him to stop but he didn’t. It led me to the trauma and I was not the person I once used to be. He tried to compensate that with oral sex but couldn’t get me off. He was a wrong guy, he gaslighted and blackmailed me after that. I got yeast infection after having sex with him and pregnancy scare too since we did it without protection. I couldn’t block him until December last year because I was worried about my safety. He had my every detail and nude screenshots and I was so scared he would do something with it.
Meanwhile, I got infatuated with my colleague (Alex) since we were talking for a month. We clicked on so many levels, our interests were alike and we both were talkative. I had never had a crush on anyone since last 8 years and I was overwhelmed with the fact that I still can develop feelings but he was married having kids. I told him about my mental health issues and he was so supportive and friendly. He was attracted with me too so we met one day and he initiated a hug and peck on my lips and I felt so emotional that I confessed my feelings right there. He got worried and said that he likes me so much but due to societal constraints he can’t marry me but wants to see me happy in my life. I started sobbing and he comforted me and left.
We met after two days and he asked me how was our interaction off late? I responded positively, then he advised me to not believe in love and just enjoy the moment. He offered me with a long drive and an ice cream treat and I became excited for his company. We went on a long drive and talked about different topics and then he parked his car beside lake and we hugged, one thing led to another and we made out but there wasn’t penetration because he prematurely ejaculated. I, who had such a little experience with men, started sobbing once I reached home, developed anxiety questioning myself what was I doing. He apparently had no feelings for me and his action was totally not romantic. But, I was so much infatuated with him that I met him again the next day but I resisted his every move and confronted him with “Are you looking for just hookups?” He told me he would rather masturbate than engaging in meaningless sex, he wants to develop a deep connection with me with mutual respect, trust, and companionship, and sex just happens between two individuals who are connected and attracted to each other. And physical touch and kissing made him so excited that he wanted sex then and there. Same was the case with me but I was skeptic of his intentions. I asked him about his previous relationships, he told me each and everything and when he asked me about mine, I lied to him about my virginity and didn’t tell him about my not-so-good only physical encounter. I told him I am inserting stuff in my vagina for years. I was scared to tell him everything. We met again after few days and we finally had sex but it lasted for few seconds. Next meeting, he questioned me about my lie stating that he has no problem with that and I can tell him the truth but I remained adamant and never told the truth until December last year after 8 months.
We met again few times during which we had sex but it never lasted more than just 30 seconds. I wanted more. I asked him about that and he stated that he had no idea why he wasn’t able to last longer and laughed it out that since you’re so hot I couldn’t last longer. Though he tried so much to get me off by other means but to no avail. First time in my life, I got worried about my future sex life because I was able to climax during solo masturbation but not in a mutual setting. And, since I was yearning for his presence in my life wanting to start a proper relationship with him, I used to cry for hours daily because it was not possible. I tried to tell him about my feelings for few times but he teased me and made fun of it. I was remaining more anxious during our meet-ups and he asked me about my diminishing libido. I stated that since we’re not together I am unable to keep up with this relation. After that day, he ghosted me for almost two months and suddenly appeared again after vacation. I was still infatuated with him even though suffered from severe depression in those months. My parents got worried for my health and I couldn’t tell them or my psychiatrist about my situation. We went on a long drive and he lectured me to get married to a suitable person. I was devastated but gathered myself and nodded. He dropped me home and again disappeared.

2023.06.07 11:00 Obvious_Breath_6225 Reasons Why You Must Visit Korea

Hello! My name is Olivia, and I live in California, USA. I wanted to share my experience and feelings about my recent trips to Japan and Korea with many people who are planning or considering traveling to other countries, so I decided to write this post.
When I first traveled to Japan, I started my trip feeling excited. However, that experience soon turned into disappointment. As I was visiting various tourist spots and getting hungry, I entered a restaurant in Japan. The menu had no English translations, but I thought it was something I couldn't help. However, without English on the menu, I couldn't figure out what kind of food it was just by looking at the pictures. So, I asked the staff what the dish was. Naturally, I didn't expect the restaurant staff to be fluent in English. It was just a matter of them providing a simple response in English. However, the staff's English pronunciation was so poor that I couldn't understand it at all. At first, I didn't even realize they were speaking English until later. In the end, I ordered the menu without knowing the details of the dish and finally received it after waiting. The food was okay, but I was really disappointed because I had learned that in Asian countries, when you order a meal, they also give you different dishes and water for free. It was nothing like that at all in Japan.
After my trip to Japan ended, I immediately headed to Korea. Having already been disappointed by my experience in Japan, I didn't have high expectations. However, when I arrived in Korea, my perception completely changed. In particular, my experience at Korean restaurants was astonishing and special. The experience I'm talking about is the free side dishes. I realized that the notion of getting different dishes and free water when ordering food in Asia, which I had learned before, was precisely describing Korean food culture. Korean food culture was completely different and had a unique taste compared to anything I had experienced so far.
When I arrived in Korea after my trip to Japan, before my meal came out at the restaurant, various side dishes were served in small bowls. I had no idea what they were, and I was so curious that I tried each of the side dishes. From the first bite, I was truly impressed by the taste. Each side dish had its own unique flavor and taste, and they all came together to create a delicious harmony with a bowl of rice. In Japan, it was typical to get additional side dishes through extra orders, but in Korea, I was amazed that I could enjoy such diverse side dishes for free. And the taste was excellent as well. Some side dishes were spicy, some were sweet, and others had a mild flavor. Experiencing these various tastes and combinations made me realize how rich and appealing Korean cuisine was.
I also have to mention the service of being able to request additional side dishes for free. This service was fantastic. You could request additional side dishes anytime, and they were provided for free. Moreover, in some places, you could even serve yourself as many side dishes as you wanted. It was truly unbelievable. Being able to take as much as you wanted was something I couldn't experience or even imagine in the United States, where I live, or in Japan, where I had traveled. This generous service was something I had never seen anywhere else.
Korean meals were already a delicious experience in themselves, but the fact that you could enjoy unlimited and free side dishes was truly something to be grateful for. And I was once again amazed by the water in Korea. Until then, the water I knew was just regular water or the sparkling water or lemon-infused water provided in restaurants. However, in Korea, sometimes instead of transparent water, they served brown-colored water in ordinary restaurants.

2023.06.07 10:59 AAM_critic Mid100Mod / Eames SoftPad high-back replica

Has anyone in the US ordered furniture from Mid100Mod.com?
According to the website, the company is based in Ireland and targets European markets; however, you can place an order for furniture form the US.
On April 11, I e-mailed [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) to confirm that the company does, in fact, sell within the US. I was interested in purchasing an Eames-style Soft Pad high-back leather chair from them. I received a near-immediate reply confirming that Mid100Mod does indeed ship to customers in the US, and that the company has a warehouse in California.
I replied with a quick question (namely, "please confirm this chair is genuine leather, as your website states") and was prepared to place my order immediately. Oddly, I never received a response to this follow-up query. I've since tried following up twice by e-mail; still no response.
A call to the phone number listed on the company's website, which has an Irish country code, produces either a busy signal or an automated message that the number cannot be reached in the country I'm dialing.
All of this raises a lot of red flags. But judging from the photos on the website, theirs is one of the best Eames SoftPad reproductions I've seen.
Has anyone successfully ordered from them? If not, has anyone ordered a similar reproduction from another company they'd recommend?

2023.06.07 10:25 Dynasty__93 How would you interpret a conversation I had with a city cop?

So I am sure many will read the title but not the body. I will say I have my opinions of cops, prisons, etc and it is mostly a progressive view but not entirely. I believe the entire United States has a lot of roots still tied to slavery and segregation. To look at the big picture we have made slavery and segregation illegal on paper but we just hoped over time the reproductions of slavery and segregation would go away... And they have not. Black people make up approximately 12% of the US population is black. Yet nowhere near 12% of large corporate CEOs or founders are black. So I get that the entire system is still rigged against racial minorities.
Now on to my recent conversation with a cop. I will just summarize by saying I asked their opinion of the social unrest in 2020 after the murder of George Floyd. They quickly answered what happened to Floyd was a murder, the cops deserve the prison time they got, but that did not like they did not like having to work 14 hour shifts 7 days in a row during social unrest in their city cop job because of people looting, along with people throwing bricks at the cops. Mind you this cop is a city cop in a city in the east coast. In their exact words they said people should be more upset with not law enforcement but instead be upset with the people who maintain the status quo: Politicians, CEOs of corporations, banks, etc. In their view the ideas that became popular in 2020 like defunding the police are things the white supremacists, the ultra rich, etc all want because that means less cops, which will then lead to more crime and will disproportionately affect the poor, minorities, etc.
So basically this cop gave me some perspective. They are a friend of a friend I met in college and just casually did a 10 minute FaceTime with them. They said they fear not enough people will want to go into law enforcement because the news reports every time a cop does or does not do something wrong. For example they explained that the chief of their city has said but not put in writing to not pull people over for traffic violations. This eventually gets discovered and speeding/street racing/etc rise and leads to injuries = People then get up and arms about "where are the cops"? At the end they summarized their beliefs with an example from 2021 where they responded to a person breaking into someone's car parked on the street at night. A lady called it in because it was her SUV that got the window broken, and the thieves stole her AirPods from the center console. It took this cop 9 minutes to get there because of critical vacancies and when they got to the residence the woman was yelling it took so long... The icing on the cake in their opinion was that she had a "defund the police" bumper sticker on her car. Their last comment to me was that prior to George Floyd's murder police departments were already running short staffed. Many cops quit within the month of the Floyd murder and now mandatory overtime is constant.
How would you interpret what this cop said? It definitely gave me some perspective and I agree mostly that people throwing things at police during protests is wrong. I do completely agree that a lot of people who want to defund the police seem to just give a pass to corporations, the judges, politicians, etc who are the ones who delegate funds/actually make the laws to keep institutional racism going. Cops are needed because even in a clean, progressive, educated society there will still be home invasions, carjackings and murders. I myself will close by saying that there are probably few jobs out there that suck as much as being a cop. You are hated by many people on the left because they think you are a pig, a racist, etc. You are hated by many on the right, just for different reasons. Take a look at January 6 and how the Trump GQP assholes treated capitol police.

2023.06.07 10:05 Salt_Artichoke_9425 I am somehow scammed by a driving school, but it’s hard to justify. What can I do except for leaving a review on Google?

The story is a little complicated. There were some issues with the driving school I went (now I changed to a new one). 1. The instructor did not teach me parking and other basics which will be asked in the exam after made me practice for 37 Fahrstunden. He’s marketing me driving without giving any coaching day by day. Mostly he’s on his phone when I was driving. When I ask questions, he only answers yes or no. 2. Randomly cancelled my exam date stating no examiners are available due to sickness. I found out later it was a lie since there are other people doing their exams on that day. 3. I registered for class B but he keeps making me driving the automatic car, giving the reason that the manual cars are under maintenance. This was also a lie.
Other than these, there were just some small issues like inappropriate language during driving, like “ don’t kill me today I don’t want to die.”, “ btw you drive shit”.
I lost a lot of money and time because of this school. I suffered from panic attacks after this experience. But I understand the situation is not easy to be justified and I also did not have evidence like voice recording or something left. I’m wondering what I can do to prevent more people have the same experience as I did, and is there anyways to make complains about this school.
Thanks !

2023.06.07 10:00 Honey_Sweetness Detransitioning not by choice...but okay with it? Sort of?

This is going to be a weird one.
So, I felt more masculine from my mid to late teenage years (there was a lot going on and it was largely a blur) and when I was in my mid-twenties and living in California, I was finally able to start transitioning, which I felt amazing about. I felt incredible wearing a binder and masculine clothes, whenever I got called 'man' or 'dude' or 'sir' (even if I tend to call EVERYONE dude) it felt great. I changed my name, ended up being able to get top surgery because I had the gene that made breast cancer pretty much guaranteed so they were able to get me in without the MASSIVE wait time (though there was still a lot of red tape to get through), and I was on hormones. I was on top of the world!
But...things didn't change. My muscles didn't develop more (and I do a lot of physical labor in my job so it wasn't like I wasn't exercising), my shape didn't become more masculine, my voice only dropped enough to sound alien to me, not enough to sound masculine - my facial structure didn't change at all. The only changes that happened were...I got fuzzier. That was it. Body hair. Body hair I didn't want but accepted as a consequence of anything I DID want.
We tried pushing the dosage as high as we safely could. We tried different methods of getting it into my system. We tried so, so many things, for years - but, as I found out when I made an attempt on my life only for the medication I used - over ten times the lethal amount for most people- to do basically nothing - my body simply doesn't absorb things the way most people's do. I have to be on a lot of supplements because my body doesn't absorb nutrition from food the way it should (though it seems to absorb fat just fine), any medications I take have to have a higher dosage to have effect, and when being put under for the surgeries I underwent (just top surgery and a uterine ablation for an unrelated medical issue), they had to use more on me than usual for someone my weight to keep me under and when I woke up I was fully lucid, no loopy confused state at all. My body just doesn't absorb anything it doesn't want to, and that included the hormones. They simply couldn't put me on enough to make the changes I was looking for, even after years of being on them.
I tried to do the 'well I'm still a guy even if I don't remotely look like one' thing, but it didn't work for me...especially living in a very conservative area, despite being in Cali, and it just felt wrong for me. I tried nonbinary, and similarly...it just felt WRONG for me. So...I essentially gave up. I started wearing silicone breast forms, shaving, got an at home laser thingy for the beard line that I'm still working on (my hair is stubborn and doesn't want to go away) and the body hair, changed my name back and basically have just gone back to being feminine entirely and using she/her pronouns. And...the strange thing is?
I'm comfortable with it now, in a way I never was before I tried to transition. I love dresses, I love feminine clothes and dressing fancy, as rarely as I get to do that. I know that clothing and all has nothing to do with gender, but it just...clicked with me in a way it didn't before. I feel a lot more at home when I look very feminine now than I did before I attempted transitioning. I think I look fucking adorable in lipstick and a red beret`. I would love to get dolled up in a full-on ball gown.
Part of me is just glad that I don't hate myself every time I look in the mirror and see a woman (though I still get frustrated at the hair), but part of me also feels incredibly guilty. Some friends of mine have a son that has been getting bigtime into right-winger stuff, and I know for a fact he has used me as an example of 'trans brainwashing' and saying that I ruined my body because I was tricked into thinking I'm trans, which I have corrected him on as harshly as I can, but he's still convinced I was tricked. I also have two trans coworkers, and I'm a bit afraid that if they know I just gave up on it, they will feel like they can't trust me the same way they have up to this point because I'm not one of them anymore. I feel like some people will see it as a betrayal, or that I'm tricking myself into thinking I'm okay with being a woman, that I'm too weak to accept being nonbinary or non-passing and having to argue with people over my pronouns constantly.
I feel like a big part of trans acceptance needs to take into account people who detransition too - a lot of people would probably feel safer experimenting with gender and finding out what they're comfortable with if they knew it would be okay for them to try it, find out it didn't work, and go back to what they were comfortable with.
I still sometimes wonder if I should've kept trying, or stuck with the nonbinary route, or being a man even if it was something I had to correct people on ALL THE TIME and didn't quite feel was true for myself...but sometimes I try on a really cute dress when I've bothered to do my makeup and look at the dressing room mirror and I can't help but think "Yes. This is right. This is me."
I'm not sure if I regret trying to transition at all or not. I do wish that my voice wasn't different, and that I didn't have the body and facial hair I'm still struggling with constantly, and I wasn't going to have to deal with trying to get reconstructive surgery for my chest - but at the same time, I didn't feel as comfortable being feminine before I tried to transition. I didn't start truly feeling at home as a woman until I tried something else.
I don't know where I was going with this or if I really had a point...more just sharing.
