I'd just graduated from college and decided to work as a research assistant at uni for a year to pad up my resume so that I could get into a competitive grad school program. The winter holidays had just wrapped up and I went up to HR to inquire about a delay in my direct deposit salary. HR lady informs me that the banks were closed over the holidays and couldn't process the payment in time. Cool, I'm about to head out when she says, "Could you help me with a technical issue ? I need some assistance with repairing my iPad. See, I went to Bali over the holidays with my family and as were kayaking on a river, my iPad fell into the river and stopped working." I should probably mention at this point that my parents were born in India and I guess I do look like the avera...

So my mom (who is fully vaccinated) who is in MSP wants to come visit me (who is also vaccinated) in PHX. She had extensive back surgery about a year ago and while the doctor has okay'd her to travel, being bolted up right in economy seats for 4 hours would cause her pain. So I'm trying to find a good recline or lie down seat. I've tried to look at various sites, but it seems to be all variable by which plane you fly... Has anyone had experience with a similar situation? Did you find a specific plane/airline that was better for this kind of thing? Even looking at first class, it seems like it's not a huge difference when it comes to seating vs economy+. submitted by /u/lolgubstep_ [link] [comments]

So I haven’t officially been fired yet or anything but earlier this evening I went to my work to eat a meal with me and my 3 friends. 1 of these friends works at the restaurant with me while the other 2 are just friends. Them 3 are all 21 while I am 20. Anyways, the guy serving us was on his first day of being at tables alone serving. My 3 friends all order margaritas while I just get a water. All 3 of their IDs were checked too, obviously since I was only getting a water my ID was not checked. About 5 minutes later he brings out 4 margaritas all of us look at each other but don’t say anything. I then take 2 sips of the margarita placed in front of me then push it away from me. Fast forward 10 minutes the general manager of the restaurant comes up to the table with all our tabs and tells u...

My neighbors who live right above me in one floor, wakes up very early, and i dont know how they manage to also sleep late. In the morning, everyday i wake up whether it be on their foot steps, or the sound of moving/ fixing stuff around the house, or their voices from the balcony. I can hear a driller at 8 AM in the morning. Thats totally normal for them. They don't miss a day! Not even Sundays! Actually sundays are worse, cause they'd have their family visiting and you can hear the grand kids running around the house shouting, crying, etc... At night, they have a terrace right above my bedroom, and i clearly hear their voices and their laughs. They are not people whom i can talk with, especially that the owner of the house whom i rented the house from, has a long bad history w...
