    [–] AITA for walking out of my job? LastLadyResting 2 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Report them to workplace relations.

    Even if nothing comes of it they still make a record, so if multiple people make reports over time it helps them build a case.

    [–] Artists that have the potential to get #1s across three decades. LastLadyResting 5 points ago in popheads

    I reckon that, if she does everything right, Britney can go for the fourth decade. She still has a major fan base that would love new music, and provided she doesn’t run up against any runaway hits (like the next OTR), then she’s in with a shot.

    [–] Lindsay Ellis: The Last of the Game of Thrones Hot Takes LastLadyResting 5 points ago in television

    At the time of the dragons hatching, there was Dany, Jon and the thought-to-be-dead Prince Aegon all alive and strong enough to be riders. Maester Aemon was also alive but too weak, which he acknowledges when he hears about her dragons (and he dies shortly after).

    The thing is, Dany doesn’t know that the other two exist, so she keeps thinking she’ll need two husbands or something like that to fulfil the prophecy.

    At least that’s what I thought it was referring to. The show never introduced Prince Aegon though, so they had to come up with something different if they wanted to keep it.

    [–] AITA for stranding my daughter because I was on drugs? LastLadyResting 2 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    There is nothing in the post that said she knows emergencies often come up in her line of work. There is nothing that indicates emergencies are common at all. Don’t add to the narrative with bias.

    [–] AITA for stranding my daughter because I was on drugs? LastLadyResting 2 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Genuine question. How do you know she wasn’t trying to make arrangements for those three hours while simultaneously juggling the work emergency? We know nothing about whether she has nearby family, whether she rang friends, neighbours etc. we know she didn’t contact OP again but why would she? He said he couldn’t do it, so he’s out, and contacting her several times afterwards to give further reasons/excuses does nothing to help fix the problem and only wastes her time. He’s not an asshole for correctly judging that he shouldn’t be in charge of a child, but neither is she automatically one for thinking to ring the father first in an emergency, or for not getting into a text convo when she has a pickup to try and sort out.

    [–] AITA for reporting my son’s terrible school bus driver? LastLadyResting 3 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    Was scrolling to see if anyone said it first. This is not real, and if it is then Mummy Dearest needs a hard slap.

    [–] AITA for getting a tattoo before my brother's wedding? LastLadyResting 2 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    I’m a huge believer in pictures being a snapshot of what things were like at the time, and therefore tattoos etc. should not be covered up. But I have always wondered about things like makeup. If you are a hardcore goth who wears heavy black and white makeup every day, is that more or less permanent than a hair colour? Does it get a pass on brides and grooms wanting it changed only because it’s easier to change than hair? Or is it a separate issue entirely? I’m not trying to be difficult I genuinely would like some opinions on this.

    [–] Can't answer my questions. Lose a sale LastLadyResting 10 points ago in MaliciousCompliance

    The thing is, that’s also the patriarchy. Men ran the world in the 70s (they still run most of it today), which means the social rules that were followed were because of male attitudes being perpetuated. The woman was spoken to at the baby shop because woman=babies. The man was spoken to at the dealership because man=cars.

    And yes, those attitudes are still around today, which sucks. But they are holdovers from the patriarchy deciding that men should only want certain things and women should only want certain things.

    In a woman-led society, if gendered rules were imposed, then that would be the result of the matriarchy, regardless of who those rules affected.

    [–] A baby's life was saved thanks to passerby's attention! LastLadyResting 3 points ago in HumansBeingBros

    I haven’t either, but I made myself a new habit of checking his seat every time I get out of the car even if I know there is no way he could possibly be there.

    But I know that feeling of forgetting when I’m at home and he’s asleep. You just get on with things and then suddenly remember that you have a baby and might need to check on them.

    [–] The costume comparison between IW Thor and Endgame Thor LastLadyResting 2 points ago in marvelstudios

    I like to think Thor’s whole outfit is part of his ‘god form’ and directly linked to his powers.

    Of course this is a personal opinion and not cannon, but I like to speculate on what each ‘god’ in Asgard’s pantheon looks like when they power up properly. (I’d love it if Loki’s was closer to his comic book form, but he never truly powered up so we’ll never know now).

    [–] Loki Will Reportedly Return For Thor: Love And Thunder LastLadyResting 2 points ago in soundsaboutright

    I know a lot of people felt his arc had ended and wanted him to stay dead, but one of my personal pet peeves is when the villain ‘redeems’ himself (or herself) by dying. Redemption is fucking hard. The villain should have to work at it, and sometimes backslide a little.

    Black Widow spent years trying to make amends so I’m cool with her ending, because even though we came into her story after she’d made the change from villain to hero, we still got an ongoing sense of her self-doubt and guilt for past actions. She was putting in work.

    Loki, by contrast, had a bit of a change of heart in relation to Thor (and maybe the rest of Asgard) then bought it, in, admittedly, quite a good cinematic fashion.

    I still want to see him put in the work, so I hope this turns out to be true.

    [–] Parent reflexes LastLadyResting 5 points ago in nonononoyes

    Children, god bless them, have absolutely no sense of self preservation at all. From the moment they can move under their own power they are dedicated to finding the most dangerous way to die. This video should be shown to every person who ever thinks stay at home parents have it easy, because you quite literally can’t take your eyes off them for a second.

    [–] The uncles have been summoned LastLadyResting 29 points ago in tumblr

    The last one is Chris Evans, so you are the only one who was certain that it wasn’t.

    [–] Yes please! LastLadyResting 2 points ago in vaxxhappened

    That doctor looks like Stephen Colbert.

    [–] Today I attended a lecture about the origins of superstition and the audience had to get in by walking under a ladder. LastLadyResting 4 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    I work in safety. Unless that ladder is bolted to the floor I’m not walking under it. It’s too easy to knock it over, catch your sleeve on it, bang your arm or head, have someone else knock it by accident, etc.

    Scientific examination of this specific superstition should have found practical merits to its existence.

    [–] AITA for wanting my wife to do more chores LastLadyResting 8 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    As a single mum of a one year old, getting chores done became borderline impossible the second he started walking. He’s fast, curious, and relentless. He’s at the cupboards, he’s playing with the bin lid, he’s screaming because I wouldn’t let him eat the toilet cake.

    I’m exhausted. All the time. I love him more than anything in the world but today I got a single load of laundry done. During the time I was loading the washer he came in, tried to climb in the dryer, tried to grab the washing powder and tripped over his own feet. I carried him out crying.

    If she feels how I do then someone asking why the house isn’t clean is going to cause her to blow her stack. Bottom line is you aren’t there during the day and if she has to list every little interaction that got in the way of said chores then what little time you do have together is going to be completely wasted. Take a day to walk in her shoes, or skip that step and just start dividing the house chores evenly, because neither one of you has time to do them during working hours.
