    [–] Can you bring an unlocked carrier iPhone X to Verizon? MADDOGCA 1 points ago in NoContract

    Is it a CDMA phone? If so, then yes you can. If the phone was originally used for an AT&T, T-Mobile, or an MVNO that piggybacks off either carrier, then you cannot use the phone on Verizon.

    [–] ‘You’ was ignored on Lifetime. Then it blew up on Netflix. What does it mean for TV’s future? MADDOGCA 16 points ago in cordcutters

    They're not fake fans. They're fans that discovered it on Netflix because they don't want to pay the ridiculous cost to subscribe to cable.

    [–] "Deep down they still love you!" "You just need to have a talk with them!" MADDOGCA 2 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in raisedbynarcissists

    I am so sorry that happened to you. My mom pulled similar bullshit this Christmas with the whole family after she because my car broke down and she got into my skin on purpose knowing damn well she'll piss me off. She was not phased in the slightest that my car lost power on the freeway and I was going 20mph surrounded by cars going 70+. Well, she got what she wanted and I got mad at her. With the little power I had, I managed to drive back to my grandma's house (where we were at previously) and she managed to storm in there and went apeshit about how horrible I was to her, I was mean to her, blah, blah, blah. She NEVER mentioned ANYTHING about the damn car breaking down! I wasn't even in the house and I could hear her throughout the neighborhood (I thought police for sure we're gonna be called.) Instead of going in the house, I was met by my aunt and cousin who told me not to go in there and we had a talk because even the rest of the family is starting to figure out what a crazy loon my mom truly is with the exception of my uncle (I don't get along with him anyways so it didn't bother me.)

    Before I left, she went off on how it was a delight to see me and that she hopes we can bond more like a real mother and son should. LMAO! Nope! Not happening! After that fiasco, I realized there's a reason why we're in VLC! I am STILL pissed off about that night and what pisses me off even more is that she either pretended that night never happened or she feels like it justified and I deserved it when I brought it up a couple of times to talk about it.

    [–] When you find out a funny story from your childhood was actually abusive MADDOGCA 11 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in raisedbynarcissists

    Yup. I had the same reaction of "WTF!?!?" from my ex's family when I told them the story about how I learned my lesson on how I have to behave in church by telling them how I got the whooping of a century and went into detail about said whooping.

    Nobody was laughing. I got a range of awkward chuckles, disgusted looks, and even my ex's mom had to excuse to herself and I guess she was crying about how bad my mom was to me according to my ex (bless that woman's heart, she was an AMAZING lady.)

    It was at THAT moment I realized how fucked up my childhood was and when I started to learn more about narcissism and eventually found myself here.

    [–] Is the Go Big Promo holding you back? MADDOGCA 1 points ago in DirecTVNow

    DTVN's "customer service" has been very hit and miss with me. If I find a not so pleasant rep I just exit the chat and find another.

    [–] I wish people would stop laughing off their own abuse MADDOGCA 3 points ago in raisedbynarcissists

    I laugh to cope. Truth be told, I acknowledge that my past abuse was not fun and if I ever have kids, I don't ever want my kids to relate to what I've been through because I know I would fail as a parent if they can relate.

    [–] What random fact could save your life one day? MADDOGCA 2 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago) in AskReddit

    Went through this the first summer I moved to Las Vegas. I blacked out and woke up in a hospital bed as a result. Last I remembered before I passed out was that I didn't even know who I was or where I was. Luckily, I was with a friend when this happened.

    This is why I ALWAYS have water in hand.

    [–] What random fact could save your life one day? MADDOGCA 1 points ago in AskReddit

    My parents live a few blocks from the beach. I guess they're screwed if they're home in a tsunami.

    [–] Men, what is an indicative hint that a woman is really creepy? Woman, what about men? MADDOGCA 9 points ago in AskReddit

    I know it too. I found out after a while of dating my ex, she would only offer sex if I even bother suggesting I want to see friends or family to continue keeping me under her control. Once I figured out her little game, the relationship didn't last. Honestly, amazing sex isn't worth losing the ability to lose contact to my loved ones and being in a horrible relationship (I realized the only thing I liked about her was the sex; we were TOTALLY incompatible and she only wanted me for control.)

    [–] Reddit what is the most toxic community you've ever encountered? MADDOGCA 16 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago) in AskReddit

    My dad gave up going to the local church we went for ages because of a lot of shit talking. My cousin gave up going to said church because she couldn't conceive the traditional way and I guess that's very frowned upon in the Catholic church. Several aunts left for the same reason my dad did. And my mom is a judgmental bitch so she fits in perfectly fine with the rest of them and would always get mad that I never wanted to go with her (back when I used to live in the same area) and she eventually left because she got embarrassed that her whole family wouldn't go with her to that specific church.

    ... I never went because I eventually lost faith in both religion and humanity (listening to a gay bashing sermon for about an hour at a church's retreat and hundreds of people shouting "AMEN!" was my last encounter with the church.) Also being physically assaulted and bullied by the judgmental people's kids wasn't really how I cared to spend my Sunday mornings and after doing that for almost 10 years, being grounded for not going was much better than more assaults from fake ass kids who put on fake smiles around the grownups and then proceed to beat me up when no one's watching.

    [–] Reddit what is the most toxic community you've ever encountered? MADDOGCA 36 points ago in AskReddit

    I second that but in Central California. They're just as big of dicks on the Central Coast as they are in Southern California. Seems like the only way you can learn to surf is if you have the "privilege" of knowing not just a surfer, but a surfer native to the area and well known to the other local surfers.

    [–] Hulu redesign may drop the confusing screen called ‘Lineup,’ simplify navigation MADDOGCA 2 points ago in cordcutters

    I liked their old design before they added that stupid, complicated one so much. I have no idea why they got rid of that. It was so much easier to navigate than the last design before this update.

    [–] Any cord cutters with kids? How do you decide what you watch and who chooses? MADDOGCA 3 points ago in cordcutters

    I'm surprised kids even adapted to cable in the first place. Not a single one of my nephews, nieces and friend's kids react well with cable TV because they hate the commercials. All these kids have their Netflix, Hulu and YouTube and that seems to serve their viewing habits well.

    [–] For those with unlimited phone data plans... MADDOGCA 2 points ago in siriusxm

    Changing channels on the app is more complicated while driving than it is to just use my radio. I'd rather use my radio than the app.

    [–] Comcast, Dish, AT&T to Raise TV Prices to Counter Cord-Cutting MADDOGCA 12 points ago * (lasted edited 17 days ago) in cordcutters

    And they wonder why people are leaving in droves. Lol. Eventually the greedy networks expecting more money for their content will soon have nothing as cable networks can't afford to keep up with all their demands.

    [–] New to cord cutting MADDOGCA 2 points ago in cordcutters

    Sounds like all you need is an antenna and you're good to go.

    [–] Old cable customer...down to one box with a basic package and I'm now over it completely. I have digital antennae on all tvs, now I want...SLING! MADDOGCA 25 points ago in cordcutters

    I would just cancel your cable TV and stick with Sling for 2 months. If you don't like it, just switch back to cable. Hopefully you'll be able to take advantage of some "new customer" deal if you decide to come back. Win-win.

    [–] TV antennas are making a comeback in the age of digital streaming MADDOGCA 4 points ago in cordcutters

    Or that you can listen to music and watch movies for free legally by simply checking them out at a library.

    [–] I love my cable, have long seen this subreddit, and as of January my love for cable has been taken advantage of... What do you guys think? MADDOGCA 1 points ago in cordcutters

    Considering that I'm completely spoiled with paying for content with no commercials and watching free content with ads, the only way I will ever consider getting cable is if it's given to me for free. Let commercials pay for the revenue. Otherwise, don't bother me.

    [–] Did anybody else’s narcissistic parents insult them to entertain others? MADDOGCA 34 points ago * (lasted edited 24 days ago) in raisedbynarcissists

    This is exactly why I don't tell my mom anything anymore. She tricked me into thinking that I can always confide with her only so that she had material to use to gossip with everyone later including friends that she approved of (most were bullies) who eventually stopped being friends with me and used that dirt to spread it around school. Then she wondered why I didn't have friends until I was in high school when I got wise and kept my mouth shut and never invited people over.
