2023.06.10 06:10 Aggravating-Animal20 ‘23 Hybrid Sport w/o BSI. Thoughts on how this would impact residuals?
Flirting with the idea of doing the Sport w/o BSI trim. I figured I could pop some blind spot mirrors on them, and that I’d also have more leverage in negotiating. Where I’m at in SoCal, no markups at the dealers near me. Concerned about residuals tho. What do you think?

2023.06.10 06:09 invesigator_gator Has anyone who majored in English or Creative Writing actually benefitted from it in their career search/current career?
I just finished my first year of college and I've always been an English/Writing focused student. It's just what I love doing and learning about. The only thing is that I'm a first-gen American who goes to a very expensive school. I do get a BUNCH of fin aid, scholarship, and loans, and I've calculated a way for me to pay off all (or the majority) of my loans at the end of each year. For example, I'll likely pay off all my loans for my first year by the end of this August, hopefully. Anyway, this is all to say that I probably won't be in a bunch of debt after my four years. And with the whole, my parents are strict immigrants thing, there's a huge expectation that I must be incredibly successful coming out of school. My mom has also expressed that she wants me to be with or near her in her old age, which is something I actually want to do, so I feel like I should be making good money to support her.
I've been thinking about doing a double major - Computer Science and Creative Writing. I figured I could enter the gaming industry (?) or some other tech industry that values storytelling and just go from there. Is this a good plan, or should I drop CW and just focus on CS? I love math as well, so the problem-solving aspect of CS gives me a bit of joy, just not as much. Is anyone in the gaming or similar tech industries with an English or Creative Writing major that can offer me some insight or advice?

2023.06.10 06:08 myxomatosiac 'Wake The World: The Friends Sessions' is a treasure trove
Being that Friends
is their 'meditation' record, I found that listening to 'The Friends Sessions' from beginning to end, with headphones, was a completely meditative and transformative experience. From listening to the backing tracks, to the A Capella tracks, to the early and alternative takes. This is a collection of absolutely genius work.
Some highlights I discovered:
- 'Meant For You - Alternate Version With Session Intro': This version is absolutely beautiful, from the moment the harmonies of 'Meeeaaaantt' come in around the 0:06 mark. Pure Bliss. It also sounds like Murry Wilson is talking to Brian in part of the opening studio chatter, giving some positive constructive criticism that Brian seems to take quite well. Apparently Murry sang background in the final take of 'Be Here In The Mornin', so it would be plausible that he would be around for the sessions.
- 'Friends - Backing Track': Listening to the instrumental, with the changes, uses of instruments such as marimba, harmonica, mild brass, and string section, sounds like a song that could have easily been included on Smile.
- 'Friends A Cappella': I didn't realize this song had the following lyric: 'I talked your folks out of making you cut off your hair'. I listened this album so many times and never realized that. To me, that one line brings so much context to the album historically. Very similar to the sentiment expressed in CSNY's 'Almost Cut My Hair': the notion of not cutting one's hair as a form of rebellion/countercultural protest/hippie-ism of the 60s. A line like that speaks volumes. The 'Bum Bum' vocals near the end of the track seem to have intentionally tried to sound like banjos, which I never noticed before.
- 'Little Bird - Back Track': at 1:30, the instrumentation sounds EXACTLY like the instrumentation for 'Child Is The Father Of The Man'. The resemblance is so uncanny that it almost seems like a deliberate hearkening back to the Smile Sessions.
- 'Little Bird - A Cappella': With Dennis's vocals being isolated, I never heard Dennis's voice sound so warm, gentle and intimate. With headphones, you can almost see him singing it in the studio.
- 'Even Steven - Early Version Of Busy Doin' Nothin'': A REAL ROCKER.
In conclusion, in listening to this entire Friends Sessions set from beginning to end, I felt immediately relaxed, calm, and at peace. Try it and feel the love. Thank you Beach Boys.

2023.06.10 06:07 lekniz Choosing a regional from 3 offers
Hello! I recently got my dispatch license and have 3 job offers in hand: Ravn Alaska, Republic, and Wheels Up. I'm curious if anyone here could help me with things to consider for choosing. My main goal is to get to a major ASAP.
I'm in Atlanta, so staying here with Wheels Up is appealing, but I know they've had some financial issues recently and are Part 135. They are offering the highest pay of the three. But I am definitely concerned about how volatile it may be in the near future.
Republic seems like it might be the best path towards a major. They are offering the lowest pay, even adjusting for the low cost of living in Indianapolis. I've heard great things about their training and success of dispatchers moving on to majors though.
Ravn is appealing because I think it would be pretty sweet to be in Alaska for a bit, and they are bringing in B757s and ETOPS, which would look good on my resume. Adjusted for cost of living, the pay would be slightly above Republic, but no state income or sales tax bumps it up some more.
Any insight on working conditions, or any other consideration I'm probably forgetting, at any of these places would be much appreciated.

2023.06.10 06:06 r4chhel i quite literally have a stalker at 17
this is like the longest post ever so, hopefully enjoy haha. but, tldr at bottom. advice wanted.
near the end of sophomore year i had a thing with a girl. long story short, it didn’t work out. i later found out that this girl, who we’ll call tilly (??lol), was also having a thing at the same time with ANOTHER girl, who we’ll call kat.
i only found out about this through kat, who messaged me only to get mad at me for it (quick reminder, had no clue this was going on. i know everyone is different but i dont believe in talking like that with multiple people at once so, if i knew that was going on i would’ve ended things myself sooner). i thought the entire thing was stupid to get mad at ME about but, i could tell she was just hurt so i tried being sympathetic, didn’t call her names or get upset with her. eventually i just told her that i wouldn’t be speaking with tilly ever again, her now girlfriend. partially out of respect for her and partially because i was mad at tilly 😑.
but i held this promise. eventually i get another text from kat, this time MUCH angrier LMAO. her acc popped up on my fyp and i swiped to her full acc, forgetting i had profile views on (terrible mistake, i about punched myself out of embarrassment). she saw me in her views and was pretty upset. asked me why i was on her acc, was much more aggressive. name calling, threatening to fight me (she quote “wanted my head”? 😏).
anyways this conversation actually ended really well, i clarified i didn’t know about her and she seemed to calm down from there. even confiding in me about how upset she was about the situation and we had a really good talk. i thought it would be over after this cause she seemed like a sweet person who was just hurt and didn’t know how to deal with it. i was very wrong.
eventually a couple months down the line i get another onslaught of seemingly random texts from her. calling me a slut and a home wrecker (you’re 16? what home?). calling me ugly, a whore, blah blah the basics. threatening pretty hard this time, i go to school on a college campus and it’s open for anyone’s entry; she planned to use this to her advantage lol. i tried very hard to be patient and refrained from calling her any names back, told her i wasn’t going to fight her, and tried talking things out. this failed LMAO
by the end of the conversation she had told me to get out of her phone (she texted me first? 😰) and said “fuck you and it’s fuck you till i die”. ngl, the idea of someone taking the thought of me to the grave is quite romantic. i just blocked her after this.
definitely thought that would be the end of it cause who is insane enough to keep going after that? kat apparently!
she contacted me on her second account! threatening to fight me again, telling me to quote “drop the addy” (giggle). i didn’t respond to it this time, at all. i was in the middle of a chem exam and rlly needed to pass. she didn’t like this and began to talk to herself about how angry she was with me from 1pm to 6pm. i blocked that account as well. but not before she got one of her friends to message me from their account, removing all the photos of them together from his account so i wouldnt know they were connected. i had already seen this guys stuff though so, i'm not an idiot LMAO. blocked that account too.
i definitely thought this would be the end. NO!!!! it had been MONTHS by now, and they were still dating so come on man arent you tired??? just have a nice relationship without bothering me. reminder, still havent spoken to tilly at ALLLLLL since the day i found out; unless it was to ask her to tell her gf to leave me alone.
it got significantly worse from this point, but its all things i cant confirm were her 100%. shes quite sneaky ngl. but, theres no one else it couldve been and all things point to her so. here we go.
first incident: after these accounts were blocked, she forged screenshots of me saying racial and homophobic slurs and SENT THEM TO MY SCHOOL!!!! my principal had to speak with me about it and my dad even came to the school. the ss forging sucked, the pfp was out of whack and way too big but, she still DID it. which i thought was literally insane.
second incident: her texting my mom. my mom is a pretty big realtor in my area. consequently, her phone number is plastered all over the place. this girl texts my mom pretending to be someone interested in buying a house. she begins the messages by saying her son knew me in middle school (????) and wanted my PHONE NUMBER so her son could reconnect with me (how sweet!). ofc my mom said she was uncomfortable with this after i said i didnt know who the hell this lady was talking about and after this the woman seized all contact with my mom. we later found out this number was FAKE!! and created through textnow. so pretty good confirmation.
most recent incident that i've been paranoid about all day haha: yesterday i received a picture of a house in my neighborhood (???) from some random burner account claiming to be someone i knew from school. i assumed they knew where i lived because it was my mom's husband's nephew (supposedly). i still thought this was suspicious, especially after they asked me to hangout (of course i said no).
this secret little account was only following 3 pages (or so i thought), all from the school that kat goes to. so, i begin interrogating this so called man named "djjwjskaka." they seemed to get pretty nervous at my questions bc things weren't adding up, eventually leading to the convo ending. i'm texting my close friend about this and they find out that its actually following 4 pages, i just couldnt see because i had it blocked. the last one is the GUY FRIEND OF KAT. WHO TRIED MESSAGING ME. TO HANG OUT. BEFORE INCIDENT 1???? blocked the hell out the account after that.
now i know that she somehow KNOWS WHERE I LIVE?? my dad said addresses arent as hard to find as i thought though so, maybe this isnt as ridiculous as i think. keep in mind, ive kept my parents completely updated throughout the YEAR this stuff has been going on. A YEAR!!! BY THE WAY!! its actually been a year and 3 months!
i was pretty freaked out about that but, no way she'd actually do something with that info lol?? wrong again.
today as im sitting in my room i hear this LOUDDDD ass banging on my window from outside. ofc i, being a goddamn scaredy cat, dont push open the curtains immediately. eventually i do, but its too late. all i see is a blue car driving off and hear loud giggling and some girl yelling "drive drive!" soooo, i go to my sister, the only other person in the house, and tell her what happened; getting on the phone with my mom right afterwards. my mom is able to confirm that the car was kat's through kat's mom's facebook, so theres that. i'm such an incredibly paranoid person and i have an anxiety disorder (woop woop) and this has been freaking me out so bad. weee even contacted the police to put it on record because theres been a ton of incidents between teenagers getting shot, stabbed, hurt really bad, in my area as of late. my mom set up a phone call with the other girl's mom tomorrow, and we have enough to press charges for harassment and stalking in my state.
look, i know to some people who deal with this stuff, my reaction is a bit ridiculous. and, maybe it is a little but, this is crazy to me. its just been going on for so long and i seriously am not a fighter. id much rather use my words and i know thats cringey but its true; i also know 100% if this girl did get physical with me i would lose badly. last thing i need is a vid of me getting my ass beat going around town, dont need any of my exes seeing that and laughing at me.
its been messing with my mental really bad as well. ive been pacing around the house making sure all curtains are closed and all doors are locked since it happened. i think its funny sometimes but atp i just genuinely want it to stop forever. getting played like an idiot was already enough, but having this girls gf come after me consistently for over a year and now coming to my house (still dk how she got my address) makes it 100000x more annoying.
hopefully this story entertained someone, but on a real note. if anyone has any advice, anyone more experienced, maybe even a parent, please. mine have been relatively supportive but, theyre stressed out about it too. i feel like a scared little kid haha, could really use a good talking to about this entire thing.
tldr: had a thing with a girl, girl was having a thing with another person at the same time (i had no idea). other person found out about this after her and said girl started dating and has been on a rampage on me ever since. sending me threats, constantly texting me after being blocked, sending forged screenshots of me saying awful things to my school's principal, finding my mom's number and pretending to be someone i knew trying to get my phone number, pretending to be someone i knew to get me to come out of my house to "hang out", and finally coming to my LITERAL house and banging on windows and shit. someone with experience pls help, could use some advice for sure. dont know what to do, been very paranoid.

2023.06.10 06:05 PuneQuencher99 Madden 24 is so far the best madden in recent years, hear me out
So far I’m happy with the game. Could it be better? Hell yes. If it actually mattered, would this game make or break the series? It would break it. But the reality of it is, the chances of EA doing anything after this game averages a 2/5 stars are almost nonexistent and they will be until their contract with the NFL runs out.
With that being said, considering this is the only AAA licensed simulation style football game on the market, I’ll give it props where it deserves it. I do think the player animations (running, catching) so far look much better then previous iterations. There’s a decent amount of new catching animations that make the game look and feel much better then 23. The players also maneuver a little more realistically when running. When EA said that they have expanded on the FieldSense technology, I can say that they actually have.
The new additions to franchise mode help the mode out much more. Personally, I am primarily a franchise player. Aside from purchasing the game, I give EA no money or attention in MUT and I only play friends occasionally in H2H. So almost all of my time is spent in franchise mode as either a coach who’s rebuilding a team or a player. The “new” additions this year help that out and do make it feel a little bit more fun to play. (I get it, not all of the features are actually new, but they’ve been added back after years of not being there)
Now, why they haven’t incorporated dynamic tacking physics into the game yet is beyond me. I’ll never understand why they won’t do this, and I guarantee you there is more of a reason then “because EA doesn’t care”. The QB animations so far seem to be slightly better but are still nowhere near being in the game ballpark as All Pro 2k8. The ball still likes to just snap out of their hands rather then smoothly roll off the finger tips. But oh well.
Overall, the game is a minor step up from 23 and does have small redeeming enchantments. But at the end of the day, it’s by no means going to “make” the series and it’s still going to average mostly negative reviews like it has for years.

2023.06.10 06:05 throworiginalaway My obese brother makes me uncomfortable
He’s only 23 (turning 24 in a couple months) and he is obese.
It started in high school when he joined the football team. He’s 6’2 so of course the couch was all over him. The couch encouraged him to bulk up which led to him eating tons and tons of food. It was okay I’m high school because he was active obviously and he looked like an average offensive line player: broad shoulders, big arms and legs, a bit of a gut. It was fine
But after high school it all went to hell.
He stopped working out completely but eats like he’s still a football player (probably even more now actually) He eats thousands of dollars worth of fast food a month, and that’s not an exaggeration. If he’s not eating fast food he’s eating entire large oven pizzas in one sitting or an entire pot of ramen noodles.
Every time he walks he sounds like he’s out of breath even if it’s just from his room to the kitchen. He still wear clothes from high school so the bottom of his gut hangs out the bottom of his shirts and his pants only covers half of his ass. He had a knee injury in high school and his weight is making it worse. We’re don’t have a lot of money and out house is small so he easily can take up the entire kitchen when he sits at the table and takes up two seats on the couch.
I get he’s an adult and can make his own decisions but I just wish my mom would do more. Don’t get me wrong, she’s tried. She used to always cook him healthy meals (he would complain and go get fast food), she would encourage him to go work out with her (he would complain and go to bed even though he’s already been sleeping for hours). She’s encouraged him to go to therapy (he went to a couple sessions and stopped going). I don’t know what else she can do but I wish she could figure something out or kick him out.
He’s angry. He’s lazy. He makes stupid decisions.
Bottom line is that he’s severely mentally ill but refuses to get help for it. Instead he’s just eating himself to death and at this point I’d rather him just do it somewhere else.
I’m tired of watching him refuse to let anyone help him but complain about not getting help. I’m tired of trying to encourage him just for him to scream at us.
Maybe I just don’t have a lot of patience for him because of the horrible things I’ve heard him say to me and my mom. Maybe it’s because I went through severe depression and was able to seek help even though it was hard. I know everyone goes through mental health crisis differently but I just have such a hard time feeling sympathetic for him. Like I said, I think it’s because my family has been a victim of his outbursts for years.
Idk I just really needed to get this off my chest because my mom doesn’t really like to talk about it. But when he walks into a room you can feel all the fun and joy be sucked out of the room. Watching him eat freaks me out and I just wanna yell at him.
I just witnessed him eating a pint of ice cream while waiting for his pizza to cook (which was a large one btw) and then he ate THE WHOLE THING.
I just wanted to watch TV in the living room with our other brother but I can’t without seeing him stuffing his face in the kitchen.
Also this part is a little gross so warning for that…
He spends HOURS in the bathroom because of his eating habits. It’ll be 3 AM and I get up to pee but lo and behold…he’s in the bathroom. I’ll knock in the door and tell him to hurry up and what does he do? HE GETS IN THE SHOWER. Like wtf you can’t wait for me to piss real quick? No because he’s selfish af. He also just walks around the house belching loud af all day for obvious reasons.
He’s just disgusting and I’m tired of living in the same house with him. I had to move back to save money for grad school but part of me wants to bite the bullet and just waste money on a cheap apartment. It’s just not fair that my mom lets the whole house revolve around him.
This was a lot longer than I expected. I just really needed to get this out. If you got all the way to the end sorry you had to read that and thanks for listening.

2023.06.10 06:03 Random_And_Brave I'm worried about my best friend (f18)'s relationship with her bf (m19)
I'm worried about my best friend and her relationship.
I know, it should be none of my business, but over the past few months I have become increasingly worried about my best friend (f18), we'll call her C.
So for context, she met this guy (m19), who we'll call K, at a concert in February. Now this is C's first actual relationship so of course at first she was over the moon about it and I was really happy for her, and things were going normally. Then about 2? weeks into their relationship K got kicked out of his house, lost his job, and decided to move in with C. (first red flag). C is still living with her parents but they are really chill and do not care that much, as long as their daughter is happy.
Then about a month (or less) later, I met K and he seemed like a cool guy. Then things started getting worse? well not really worse, but just more concerning from an outside perspective. I found out K liked to do a lot of illegal things that I was a bit iffy on (things like shoplifting but x100). This habit of his got worse and my friend did not seem to care much, so I just went with it. I mean, I am also a bit scared of K because of certain things.
Then as we continued to hang out more, things started to raise more red flags with me. I noticed that K has a very short fuse and will blow up at people. At first he was avoiding getting mad at C, and ended up getting mad at me instead. This was not good. Mainly because I never (rarely ever) get triggered by things, but he scared me. At that moment, he seemed like he could probably hurt someone physically.
I noticed more and more how often he would get mad at people and things and it did not sit right with me. I knew from the moment he first yelled at me that he was very capable of hurting C if he wanted, or even on instinct. He says that he would never and has control, but I don't think so.
What has brought this back to my attention is the fact that C has been distancing herself from everyone. That's concerning to me, because for the 4 years I've known her, that was the opposite of what she was usually like and I know when I distance myself, it's not a good sign, and her and I are a lot like minded. I was even talking with her mom (who is like a 2nd mother to me) the other day, and she said that C has been very avoident of talking with her now and everything which is very surprising considering that they used to be really tightly knit. So at this point, C has only really been socializing with K. Another red flag.
Why is this a red flag, if you can't already tell, well from what I have heard from my friend and witnessed myself, K has been lashing out at her more for certain things and it seems to be psychologically messing with her and making her believe that she can't say anything to anyone. This is so unlike her it's just making me so worried that she'll get herself sucked into this relationship that she'll stop caring about those who do care about her, and I fear this has already started to happen.
I can tell, she's in love, and she doesn't want to leave this relationship. I've been there, done that, but this is just getting to a point, if it wasn’t already, to where it is growing increasingly toxic. It reminds me so much of my parents relationship that I can see exactly where this might be headed and I don't want to see my best friend caught in that trap and end up losing everything in the process.
I honestly have no idea what to do which is why I'm on here asking. I'm considering talking to her parents separately and seeing if either they can have a talk with her or have us all have an intervention. Though I feel like if we do approach the situation like that, she may just cut everyone out completely or not willing to listen.
TLDR: My best friend is in a toxic relationship that could lead to her losing everything and me losing her.
Oh and to add on, K still does not have a job and is still living in C's house.

2023.06.10 06:02 KillingSnore The Daily Check-In for Saturday, June 10th: Just for today, I am NOT drinking!
We may be anonymous strangers on the internet, but we have one thing in common. We may be a world apart, but we're here together! Welcome to the 24 hour pledge!
I'm pledging myself to not drinking today, and invite you to do the same.
Maybe you're new to /stopdrinking
and have a hard time deciding what to do next. Maybe you're like me and feel you need a daily commitment or maybe you've been sober for a long time and want to inspire others.
It doesn't matter if you're still hung over from a three day bender or been sober for years, if you just woke up or have already completed a sober day. For the next 24 hours, lets not drink alcohol! This pledge is a statement of intent. Today we don't set out trying not to drink, we make a conscious decision not to drink. It sounds simple, but all of us know it can be hard and sometimes impossible. The group can support and inspire us, yet only one person can decide if we drink today. Give that person the right mindset!
What happens if we can't keep to our pledge? We give up or try again. And since we're here in /stopdrinking, we're not ready to give up.
What this is: A simple thread where we commit to not drinking alcohol for the next 24 hours, posting to show others that they're not alone and making a pledge to ourselves. Anybody can join and participate at any time, you do not have to be a regular at /stopdrinking or have followed the pledges from the beginning.
What this isn't: A good place for a detailed introduction of yourself, directly seek advice or share lengthy stories. You'll get a more personal response in your own thread.
This post goes up at:
A link to the current Daily Check-In post can always be found near the top of the sidebar.
- US - Night/Early Morning
- Europe - Morning
- Asia and Australia - Evening/Night
Hello SD! Happy Saturday.
This is my last post this week and I've been thinking about the future a lot. Every day we choose not to drink, we're shaping a better tomorrow. Quitting alcohol isn't just about stopping a habit, it's about redefining ourselves and deciding who we want to be.
Sure, there are tough days. There are times we mess up, get knocked down, and feel the raw pain of trying to change. That's okay. It's part of this journey. We acknowledge the struggle, get back up, learn from it, and keep going.
One of the greatest things about this path we're on is the chance to start fresh each day. Every morning offers a new opportunity to make progress, to heal, to grow. And yes, like I've said all week, it's hard. It can be really hard. But every day, it gets a little bit easier.
A powerful reminder that we're not alone in this journey is the activity on our subreddit. Since my last check-in, there have been 185 individual posts (as of the time of writing), with a staggering 6475 combined upvotes and comments. That's a lot of support, a lot of shared experiences, a lot of solidarity.
Your posts matter.
Your support matters.
Keep going, keep trying, keep healing. Remember, it's hard, but it gets easier. It really does.
And as a reminder, if you have 30+ days sober and you'd like to host the DCI, reach out to SaintHomer and he’ll get you set up!

2023.06.10 06:00 Go-Speed-Go Can somebody just be unlucky?
I really got into poker in the November of 2022.
I started watching all the PCAs, WSOPs, was watching videos from Johnathan Little and other poker youtubers.
Then I start playing on wsop and I feel like I do a good job. When I play cash games I play very low stakes cause im just a 22 year old newbie but I do well. If I play at a 10 dollar table ill usually leave with 20 or more.
But the real fun I have is tournaments, since that's what I'm use to studying and watching.
I just can't win though. I can stay in first or near first more the tournament (mind you im playing tournaments with buy ins ranging from $2.10-$50) and I play multiple tournmanets a week.
Last week my big session I lost every all in 11/11 times.
Today I have lost 16/16 all ins.
Its crazy, I would day 50 percent or more of the time I shove, I have the hand thats favorite to win. 25% is a semi-bluff with good odds of taking the lead and 25% are straight bluffs.
When my buddies watch me they say im playing fine, I buy the poker test and it says im getting an average of 85% of more questions and scenarios right.
Can I just be unlucky or am I just applying what I've been taught wrong.

2023.06.10 05:59 axolottadamage Can we take a second to appreciate the boys for opening up this episode? (Potentially triggering content)
I would find it super difficult to openly talk about issues such as the ones they mentioned but hearing them discuss it plainly and without like mocking jokes was so refreshing.
In my own experience, I don’t have children but my youngest brother nearly killed my mother when he was born. His own condition was also unstable but in my mind (I was 9/10 yrs old) that didn’t matter the only thing I could focus on was my mom. It’s been way over a decade now and they’re both fine now but up until maybe he was 7-9 months old I truly resented him and it was completely unfair of me. It’s weird looking back because I love him and I can’t possibly imagine feeling that now. This probably is oversharing a bit so I’m sorry for that and it’s nowhere near Bob’s situation but I wanted to offer a bit of relatedness.
Anyways yeah just wanted to keep the openness going and thank the boys ❤️

2023.06.10 05:58 itsyaboivatzie Every child deserves a father. Not every father deserves a child.
TW: Domestic Violence
I talked to my dad for the first time in like, 8 months. I rarely call him about things other than to keep the peace between him and my mother. He and my mom were and always have been in an insanely domestically violent relationship and I was exposed to that as a kid. I also recieved physical abuse from him and a sexual abuse incident when he was on prescription pain killers for his back surgery.
Its weird though. When I moved out, he sort of just..turned a weird new leaf. Hes still a narcissist, but he's been living fairly peacefully with my mom now. I didn't talk to him for 2 years after I moved and my mom told me he sobbed about it nearly every day.
I called him just tonight and idk why. I saw a drum set I really wanted and wanted his opinion on it. He taught me drums as a kid.
It hurts a little. I want desperately to have a father but I will never fully be able to shake the abuse. Yet if he died, I would still be sad. Not because he died but because I never had an actual father.
Hes different now. When hes not around my mom, they're fine. Completely different people. They're in the process of splitting up and honestly their lives are better off being split than together.
It just feels weird. My father put me through hell and back. I have quite literally seen the devil in this man's eyes.
Yet why do I feel any kind of mercy for him? He's old now. His hips are bad. He's getting a bit of dementia too. Never saved enough to retire so the responsibility falls on me and his friends. Hes frail now, quieter, stands lower. When I first saw him after 2 years I was surprised how hard age hit him during that time. I'm surprised now to see it 2 years later.
I want to move on. To have a father. To enjoy the years he has left separately to save some sort of semblance of the relationship we could have had if he just worked on himself.
But I'm just left feeling confused, conflicted and teary eyed. I don't know what to do.

2023.06.10 05:55 Hopelesslyinlove2424 I’m happily Married over 20 years, I think I’m falling in love with my BFF.
I’ve been with my husband over 20 years your average happily married couple, a few speed bumps, nothing major, high school sweethearts monogamous….
Now enters my BFF, I have known her an equal number of years, also kind hearted I believe straight.
Over the years both of these people have been involved in major parts of my life. Marriage, graduation, births (kids the same age) , loses of family, lose of pregnancy and ultimately loss of children. It may have been my near death experience that they both dealt with (separately) a couple of years ago, or just the highs and lows we all have dealt with over the years that I have fallen in love with her.
The last few weeks my husband and my I have been discussing of opening our lives to someone else… This is when i opened up to him about my hidden feelings for her. I think he’s always known that I have feelings for her “I love her” and it’s not necessarily in a bi-way.
I have had these feelings since I almost died three years ago I woke up after being etxthubated with her in tears next to my mom. Now all I think about is how much I love her.
I want a polyamorous relationship with her and my husband as I love them equally. I often fantasize of all of us together, me I would be content to cuddle In bed all day long. But I would want both of them happy as well…
I’m scared of telling her possibly being embarrassed, or her repulsed by my feelings and ultimately loosing my friendship( honestly I don’t think that will happen). She has been divorced for awhile and I am unsure of her dating dynamics. I’m scared if I don’t tell her that I nor her how I feel. will ever know my true feelings. Ultimately even if she thinks I’m crazy and remains my friend I hope she realizes how much I care for her and her over all happiness.

2023.06.10 05:54 DnDBambi Random Nighttime Wilderness Encounter Table
| || | submitted by DnDBambi to UnearthedArcana [link] [comments]
So I'm running SKT and they have a nicely detailed random encounter table for day time travel, but I also really wanted something for the nighttime while the party are trying to safely rest. So I made this!
I added a few unique ideas/suggestions I'd seen around the internet while also creating a few of my own. I had my own party in mind for this (4 x Lv. 6) but I'm hoping it's universal enough to adapt for any party!
Feel free to use and let me know what you think :)
Random Nighttime Wilderness Encounter Table
- At the beginning of each night/long rest, roll a d20. On a result of 12-20 a nighttime encounter occurs. Roll a d100 and consult the table based on the party's current location
- Roll a d4 (reroll 4s) to determine if the encounter occurs on the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd watch of the night
- Once they have their first nighttime encounter, the d20 range shrinks by two for every future nighttime encounter thereafter until they reach the next settlement, upon which, the range resets. This is to prevent there being an encounter every single night they're on the road and not bogging down gameplay. Feel free to adjust these DCs if you want less or more random encounters.
- After first nighttime encounter, new range = 14-20
- After second nighttime encounter, new range = 16-20
- After third nighttime encounter, new range = 18-20
- After four nighttime encounter (and every encounter after) a Nat20 must be rolled to receive a new encounter
Encounter Table Notes: Abominable Yeti:
- A single abominable yeti ambushes the party hungering for flesh and blood. If the party manage to defeat this yeti, there is a 30% chance that 1d3 regular yetis show up after battle, drawn in by the sounds of combat and the scent of blood
- You can choose between bandits or barbarians for this encounter based on the location and frequency of previous encounters
- 1 bandit captain and 3d6+2 bandits
- Mounted on riding horses
- 25% chance they attack without warning
- Promises the party not to attack if they 'pay a toll' (no less than 100gp of treasure)
- Is this a potential way to introduce the 'Happy Fun Ball'?
- Treasure: Each bandit carries a pouch containing 1d10gp. The bandit captain’s pouch holds 2d10gp and 1d6 gems worth 100gp each
- Uthgardt Barbarians:
- Hostile group of Uthgardt barbarians made up of 4d6 tribal warriors, and 1 Uthgardt shaman (Appendix C). If the total number rolled is great than 20, add 1d3 berserkers and a tribal chieftain (berserker w 90hp)
- If dealing with the Gray Wolf tribe, use the werewolf stat block for all berserkers and chieftains (+90hp) and add 1d4 wolves as animal companions
- Uthgardt Barbarian General Info
- Black-haired and blue-eyed people
- Take their name from Uthgar Gardolfsson, a hero chief who battled giants and conquered much of the North before ascending to godhood
- Currently 11 tribes scattered across the north
- They speak Bothii (their own language) and most speak common
- Their spirit mounds are sacred as it's a place where tribe members gather to revere Uthgar, honour their ancestors, make sacrifices to their totem animal spirit, and choose a new Great Chief
- Uthgardt fear magic so much so that they attempt to kill and dismember any spellcasters they meet
- Tribal shamans aren't attacked because their power comes from spirits of their dead ancestors
- Tribes will unite against a common enemy, like a giant (whom they hate most of all)
- Each tribe consists of 1 Great Chief, 2-5 chieftains, and 1-3 shamans depending on the size of the tribe
- Use the "Reghed Chieftain" stat block for a Great Chief

- Great Chief - Recently slain Syken Nightblaze
- Syken was slain by adventurers from Neverwinter

- Potentially run a surprise encounter if the party ever goes to Neverwinter
- The tribe roams in packs with ordinary wolves
- Will hunt down and kill those who survive their attacks to prevent the spread of lycanthropy to non-tribal members
- The only members of the tribe who possess lycanthropy are the chieftains and berserkers. The rest of the tribe are regular tribal warriors
- In an encounter have all barbarians start out in human form, then have them use their 'Shapechanger' action on their first turn to turn into a Hybrid or Wolf form and freak the party out
- Lycanthropy Cure: Can be cured with a 'Remove Curse' or 'Greater Restoration' spell
- Great Worm Tribe

- Boorvald has 6 sons and 3 daughters, each of whom was given an "Oathbow" from the tribe's elf neighbours as a gift of friendship
- The tribe contains tribal warriors from other tribes who came to the Grandfather Tree, gained enlightenment, and forsook their allegiances to pledge to help the Tree Ghosts protect the Grandfather Tree
- Depending on the location, this can be represented as bioluminescent lights or more of a aurora borealis in the night sky
- The party, or person on watch, notices a faint glow coming from nearby in the camp. A small pond (or tree/shrub/etc) is emitting a faint, beautiful glow that seems to be a wonder of nature
- Describe how the lights beautifully dance and shimmer in the night
- The effect is harmless and the party can spend as much or as little time engaging with it as they want
- 2d4+1 vine blights and 2d4+1 needle blights attack the party in the night
- The vine blights move in close and camouflage using their False Appearance ability. Once they're within 20ft, they run forward and use their Entangling Plants ability to subdue the party
- The needle blights then move within 30ft and release a volley of needles at the party from a distance
- Alternatively, the party may happen to set up camp in a congregation of unmoving vine blights who are relying on their False Appearance to strike when the party is caught off-guard. The needle blights join in later in the combat
- A single bodak is drawn to the party's campsite by the light/noise, following its mission from Orcus to spread death across the Material Plane
- Any non-war trained animals will flee right before this encounter takes place
- If it fits in your narrative, the bodak can be a fallen NPC that one of the players used to know. It is seeking out all allies and enemies from its past life to wipe them from existence
- Increase the HP if a single bodak doesn't pose much of a challenge
- 3d4 dire wolves encircle and ambush the party at night
- The wolves won't attack outright. They will surround and then slowly close in on the party, giving anyone a chance to do something that might scare them off before combat begins (PC Intimidation check vs Wolves Insight check)
- Potentially nominate a pack leader that will have an impact on how this plays out
- If the party don't do anything or fails to intimidate the wolves, they will attack
- If things aren't going well for the party, you can have the wolves' survival instinct kick in if their numbers are reduced to less than the number of still-threatening PCs
- 1d4+2 displacer beasts ambush the party either for food or just general sport
- One displacer beast might lash out at the party in an attempt to draw them away from the group to a location where the rest of the pack are waiting for a bloodier ambush
- 1d4 ghosts appear and attack the party
- If a 1 is rolled, a solitary, sad-looking ghost appears in the middle of their camp and sings a haunting song, then walks to where its grave is marked by a filthy stone. If the party ignore the ghost or leave the grave alone, nothing happens and the ghost remains suspended in the air looking at the grave until the party leaves. It they clean the grave site out of respect for the dead, the ghost disappears and turns into a shower of 777 silver pieces. If they desecrate or disrespect the grave for some reason, it attacks
- If it attacks, bump its HP up to 60 so it poses somewhat of a challenge
- 1d4+4 ghouls attack the party led by 1 ghast
- The ghast will give orders to the ghouls to attack who it feels is the strongest party member
- If ghouls are attacked while feasting on a paralysed creature, they will drag their prey their full movement (half speed) away while also continuing to use their bite on their paralysed victim
Magical Glowing Mushrooms:
- 1d4+1 giant constrictor snakes slither into the campsite and attempt to snap up a tasty meal
- You can have the snakes appear and pause, waiting to see the party's reaction, to give your PCs a chance to do something that might prevent this from being a combat encounter
- Tasha's Cauldron of Everything - Magic Mushrooms (pg. 166)
- The party stumbles across a collection of magic mushrooms near their campsite, radiating this magical glow
- Those proficient in Medicine, Nature, or Survival can surmise that these are not naturally forming mushrooms and with a DC12 roll, can recall stories of magical mushrooms and how some can save lives or bestow unusual powers when consumed
- If a mushroom is eaten, roll a d10 to determine its effects:
- 1: The creature’s skin turns an unusual colour. Roll a d4:
- 1 - Purple with yellow splotches
- 2 - Bright orange with tiger stripes
- 3 - Tree-frog green with red squiggles
- 4 - Hot pink with yellow spots
- This change is permanent unless removed by a Greater Restoration spell or similar magic.
- 2: The creature gains the enlarge or reduce effect (50 percent chance of either) of the Enlarge/Reduce spell for 1 hour.
- 3: The creature regains 5d8 + 20 hit points.
- 4: Vocally, the creature can only cluck and croon like a chicken. The creature can also understand and speak to chickens. This curse lasts for 1 hour unless ended by a Remove Curse spell or similar magic.
- 5: The creature can understand and speak all languages for 1d4 days.
- 6: The creature gains the benefits of the Telepathy spell for the next 24 hours.
- 7: The creature gains the benefits of the Speak with Plants spell for 8 hours.
- 8: The creature immediately casts the Time Stop spell, requiring no components. Constitution is the spellcasting ability for this spell.
- 9: The creature immediately casts the Detect Thoughts spell, requiring no components. Constitution is the spellcasting ability for this spell.
- 10: Magical mists pour out of the creature’s eyes and ears, acting as a Fog Cloud spell for 1 hour that is centred on the creature and moves with it.
- An old halfling woman with a small glaive will approach the party's campsite looking for a place to rest and some company to talk to
- The glaive is a custom weapon made for a halfling that she's had since she was a young woman. She's pretty handy with it but getting quite slow in her older age. It's her only form of protection as she travels
- The old woman is really an oni who has used it's Change Shape ability to be able to get closer to its prey
- When the oni feels the party is no longer believing its lies or has completely let their guard down, it will attack
- This attack may begin with a Cone of Cold to surprise the party, and then on its next turn it will transform into its true giant form. Or it could also start with the oni transforming prior to combat, then on its first turn casting Invisibility on itself to create a sense of fear amongst the party
- A loud, deep hooting sound can be heard throughout the night, not close but not too far from the campsite. The hooting sounds like it comes from something much louder than a regular owl
- Players who made a successful DC12 Perception check, notice off in the distance a pack of 5 owlbears slowly moving through the terrain in single-file
- There is a large owlbear at the head of the line, and another large owlbear bringing up the rear. In the middle of them are three smaller offspring
- They don't appear to be hunting at this moment, just moving from A to B
- Unless the party does something to draw the pack's attention, they will move on into the night
- 1d4+1 hunting owlbears will spring into the party's campsite, hunting them for food
- If a total of 5 is achieved and you feel this encounter is way too deadly for your group, have the hunting pack be a family made up of two adult owlbears and three younger offspring (40hp) who are hunting for their first time (no multiattack)
- If an offspring is killed, the parents will fight to the death with unbridled fury seeking vengeance
- If both parents are killed off, the offspring will flee
- If only 2 owlbears are rolled and you feel this encounter too simple, max out their hit points (91hp)
- A glimmering, white pegasus descends from the sky and lands not far from the party's campsite, looking for a place to drink, eat, or temporarily rest
- If this occurs along a road/trail, the pegasus won't land, but will instead gracefully soar past the party, basking in the night air
- Pegasi are usually quite jumpy, so will immediately take off into the sky if any loud noises are made or it is attacked
- However, if a good-aligned character can quietly approach and succeed on a DC15 Animal Handling check, the intelligent creature will stay grounded and watch the character as it approaches
- Narrate a peaceful interaction between the two before the pegasus takes its leave and flies off into the night
- If a character tries to mount the pegasus they will need to succeed on a DC25 Animal Handling check
- A failure will result in the pegasus bucking them and flying off
- A success, and the pegasus will just stand there, MAYBE briefly trot around, before indicating for the character to get off and then saying goodbye and flying off
- 1 revenant stumbles into the party's campsite, appearing initially like a zombie, but will begin speaking to the party. Very much unlike a zombie.
- The revenant says he has come to seek justice for the wrongs the party did to him, killing him in such a brutal manner and taking the life of his greatest love, Kella. The party will then see past the unfamiliar face and recognise him as the slain leader of the Seven Snakes, Xolkin
- As Xolkin has sworn vengeance on the party, he can now only be completely destroyed by either using a Wish spell when his soul is bodiless, the party just straight-up dying, or the party survives for over a year from when the vengeance was enacted. After one of these has occurred, the Xolkin's body will crumble to dust and his soul will fade into the afterlife
- If Xolkin can't beat them in this first encounter, next time he appears, it will be with weapons and backup (spectres, wights, ghasts, etc). He won't quit until he is successful, making sure each future encounter is harder and more challenging
- The clouds final erupt and the remainder of the night is filled with thundering rain and high winds
- Rain can be replaced with a blizzard if the party is in the upper mountains or far-north sections of the continent
- Unless one of the party members has a way to avoid/negate the rain and wind (such as Leomund's Tiny Hut for example), the party has a very restless nights sleep
- They gain the effects of a Long Rest but everyone also gains one level of Exhaustion and cannot recover any previous levels of exhaustion
- A single wight leads an undead army to attack the party. The army is made up of 2d6 zombies and 1 ogre zombie
- If the number of zombies rolled is less than 6, replace the single ogre zombie with 1d4 ogre zombies
- The wight will send the horde of zombies in first while it attacks from range to begin with, then moving in closer for melee
- A figure will emerge out of the darkness, staggering a little. They make no effort to stealth either. They are friendly and will comply with whatever reasonable requests the cautious PCs make
- They will reveal themselves to be a vampire, in dire need of blood. They will ask for a donation, but if refused, will walk away disappointed
- If the player does contribute blood, the vampire will thank them, and next time this encounter is rolled, the vampire may have a gift for them (magic item, gold/platinum, jewels, etc)
- The player may choose to drain some blood into a vial or pot for the vampire to then drink, or they may choose to let the vampire bite them. Regardless of the way, they will take 1d6 piercing/slashing damage (based on how they draw the blood), then 3d6 necrotic damage, and their max HP is reduced by that amount until the end of a long rest
- If concerns are raised, the vampire will assure them that a simple bite isn't enough to turn someone. They must be killed with a bite and then buried in the ground to rise as a vampire
- If the party is very brazen and choose to attack the vampire, it is the DM's choice whether the vampire straight away flees, or decides to bite a character to take some blood by force to teach them a lesson for their rudeness, then flee
- A cluster of 1d6+1 will-o'-wisps appear and start floating around the campsite
- Initially the wisps will appear as beautifully coloured, bobbing lantern lights offering hope and safety
- Eventually the wisps will surround the party and launch a surprise attack
- Alternatively, you can have the wisps attempt to lure the party away from the campsite by somehow beckoning them to follow. From here the wisps will lead the party into some sort of hazardous trap like quicksand pits or monster lairs so they can feed on the suffering of their prey and revel in their death screams
- If you are considering this option, potentially reduce the wisp numbers to only 1d4

2023.06.10 05:53 Hopelesslyinlove2424 Should I pursue a polyamorous relationship with my female BFF
I’m happily Married over 20 years, I think I’m falling in love with my BFF.
First I’ve been with my Husband over 20 years both mid 40s pretty much happily married occasionally a few minor speed bumps early in our marriage but nothing Major, high school sweethearts monogamous. Now enters my FBFF also mid 40s that I have known almost equal number of years, also kind hearted I believe straight. Over the years both of these people have been involved in major parts of my life. Marriage, graduation, births (kids the same age) , loses of family, lose of pregnancy and ultimately loss of children. It may have been my near death experience that they both dealt with (separately) a couple of years ago, or just the highs and lows we all have dealt with over the Years. Me and my husband have been discussing of opening our lives to someone else. This is when i opened up to him about my hidden feelings for her. I think he’s always known that I have feelings for her “I love her” and it’s not necessarily in a bi-way. I have had these feelings since I almost died three years ago I woke up after being etxthubated with her in tears next to my mom. Now all I think about is how much I love her. I want a polyamorous relationship with her and my husband as I love them equally. I often fantasize of all of us together, me I would want to cuddle In bed all day long. I’m scared of telling her possibly being embarrassed, or her repulsed by my feelings and ultimately loosing my friendship( honestly I don’t think that will happen). She has been divorced for awhile and I am unsure of her dating dynamics. I’m scared if I don’t tell her that I nor her will ever know my true feelings. Ultimately even if she thinks I’m crazy and remains my friend I hope she realizes how much I care for her and her over all happiness.

2023.06.10 05:53 carlsjuniorIII Vegas thing still intrigues me
I understand why there are many skeptics of this case, but after viewing the kid’s video multiple times and listening to the 911 call as well a couple of things still irk me.
- The kid never mentions seeing any sort of craft in his backyard. He says that they saw a light, heard a loud bang, and saw 10ft beings in the backyard.
- He said that the officer was the one who pointed out the circle. Maybe it was already there and they never noticed? The kid never mentioned seeing a craft land in that spot.
- If he is bull shitting he deserves an oscar. because that 911 call did not seem like an act.
I don’t think people should be so quick to dismiss this case. Maybe the ufo crashed somewhere near and the aliens were just running around in his backyard? Or maybe this kid is just full of shit who knows🤷♂️.

2023.06.10 05:53 SillyConsul Things turn, on a hot summer night
It was a hot humid summer afternoon. me (mío) and my friend (Jake) were chilling in Jake’s basement playing video games. Currently Jake’s air conditioning unit was broken and my house was boring so we were stuck there. “It’s so damn hot” Jake says. “I know, I wish there was a better way to cool off” i say. “Yo dude? You mind if I take my shirt off?” He says “nah it’s your house you do whatever” I say as he pulls off his shirt. As he pulls off his shirt I can’t help but notice how beautiful his chest and arms look. I feel my dick grow in my shorts as I gaze. I try my best to hide it. “You can take yours off too, bro.” Said Jake. I take off my shirt as well. “Damn bro you got a nice decent bod” Jake jokingly says. “Thanks, you too.” I say as I’m pointing to his abs.
We continue playing the game for a while until Jake says “The stupid fan isn’t enough. Dude do you care if I take my pants off?” “Yeah it’s alright is it ok if I take my pants off too?” I say. “Yeah, you do you, bro” Jake says as he takes off his shorts revealing his loose sweaty boxers. I can’t help but look. I can see his tip poking out from the leg hole of his boxers. I take my shorts off revealing my sweaty boxer-briefs with my clearly noticeable bulge. “Woah nice bulge there, mío” Jake says. My face flushed red of embarrassment as I cover it up with my hands. “It’s alright dude. We’re both guys.” Jake says. “That is true” I say.
We continue playing until it got late. I asked Jake if I could spend the night due to me living a few minutes away and neither or us wanted to walk alone in the dark. “Hey Jake Is it ok if I take a shower?” I say “yeah of course, mío. I’ll make your bed” Jake says. I walk to the bathroom and get undressed and turn on the shower. Normally on hot days I’d take a cold shower but today I took a warm shower. After a few minutes in the shower I hear the door open “yo mío? Can I join you?” I hear Jake say. “Uh sure” I say. With Jake being a straight male for the years I’ve known him, this is fairly odd behaviour. Jake soon gets in and I hand him some soap. “Yo mío you wanna compare sizes?” He says. “Jake this you’re acting very strange, what’s up” I say “I’ll tell you once we get out, mío” “ok”. We both get out of the shower dry off and sit on his bed still naked. “Mío ever since we were younger I’ve always had my eyes on you.” “But Jake I thought you were straight?” “No, mío I’m gay, hella gay” he reaches for my shoulder. “Mío you are beautiful”. I’m in a shock. I don’t know what to do. “Jake I-“ “shh, mío.” Jake puts a finger over my lips. And tells me to sit back. He goes over to his dresser and grabs me a pair of his boxers, workout shorts and a tank. “You can wear these to sleep” Jake says. I put them on slowly. Jake goes to turn off the lights and goes into his bed still naked.
It’s an hour later and it’s pitch dark everywhere and I can’t stop thinking about what he said.
On the left side of the room near Jake’s bed I hear some motion. Then I hear him getting up. A few seconds later I feel pressure on the bed and It’s Jake. He’s currently on top of me. “Jake what are you doing?” Jake lays down beside me and gets under the covers. He’s still wearing nothing and I can feel his cock press against my leg. Over the years I did know if I was gay or bi or whatever the hell anything is. But now I know. I’m a fucking homo. I lay on my side and put my hand on Jake’s chest. I move it all around until I get to his cock. I start touching it. He knows what to do and moves his hands down my pants and goes to my dick. We both sit up and I take off my clothes. He starts jerking me off then I push him backwards and stand on all fours over him. I didn’t know what I was doing. I wanted to fuck him but I didn’t know how. I sat up and pushed him up and started to jerk both of our cocks. “You want me to fuck you?” I say in a sexy way. “Yes please” Jake says like a slut. I hop off of the bed to grab some lube and a condom from his bedside table i slide the condom on and I take the lube and put it on my finger to apply to Jake’s asshole. He moans in pleasure as I slide my finger in. The room is already getting hot and steamy from the heat from our bodies and the warm summer night. “Are you ready?” I ask “hell yes, mío” Jake says. I slowly stick my cock in Jake’s ass. I feel him shiver from the input and pleasure. I start going in and out, in and out. He starts moaning from the pleasure as do I. Jake is very tight and he feels good around my cock. It’s a lot for me and him. I start to thrust faster one two, one two. I think In my mind. I put my face close to his and I started making out with him while I was thrusting my cock in and out. “Mío! I’m getting close!” Jake says “so am I” I say. “Let’s cum” he says. We keep fucking until we reached the point of no return. I cum in his ass and he cums on his chest. “AUUGHH” I moan. “That was the most pleasureful experience I’ve felt” I tell him he agrees. We clean up and take another shower together. Then we went back to the bed to cuddle and then sleep.

2023.06.10 05:53 muthrhubbard Missing Mini Aussie
| || |
My Chatt People please help......about 36 hrs ago my mini aussie Tobee literally vanished out of my side yard. I live in the Hixson/Middle Valley area near the Middle Valley ballfields. She is posted all over fb, instagram, community and missing animal sites. I've contacted McKamey and the Humane Society. We searched by car and on foot for over 12 hrs yesterday and again today. We've talked to neighbors, businesses and even people out walking. Noone has any information or has seen her. Please, please if anyone knows anything or can help me in any way, private message me. AND PLEASE KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR HER! Her name is Tobee, she is a 5 yr old blue merle mini aussie, has 1 blue eye and the other is perfectly half blue half brown. She was wearing a collar with a pink bone with her name and my name/number. She weighs about 20 lbs. She is my baby. And unfortunately no, not chipped. She is an indoor dog and I never thought I would need it. It's apparent that some shit bag took my dog. I just want her back. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!! submitted by muthrhubbard to Chattanooga [link] [comments]
