    [–] AITA for wanting to get rid of our dog? RodeTheMidnightTrain 2 points ago in AmItheAsshole


    He's a young dog still. He needs lots of physical and mental stimulation. Have you ever heard the saying that a tired dog is a good dog?

    He needs exercise and I don't mean left out in the yard by himself. Take him somewhere where he can run and burn off energy. Does he have toys he can chew on? Things that are his that he can learn are his. Pitbulls are smart and can be trained. Teach him what's his to chew on and what's not his. Use a lot of positive reinforcement. Also, has be been fixed?

    [–] I’m [30m] talking with this super rad [29f] girl on okCupid. We’re really hitting it off, however last week she told me she has a 5 month old daughter and the father completely abandoned them. I feel terrible, but I definitely am not ready to be a step father. I can barely take care of myself. Help! RodeTheMidnightTrain 1 points ago in relationships

    No one says you have to help her out or support her child right now. Nor do you have to be a step dad right now.

    Get to know her. And if you want to let her know that you're not sure how you feel about dating a single mom, then definitely communicate that to her. There's nothing wrong with expressing your hesitation.

    I've been a single mom in the dating world before. Granted everyone is different, but I never once expected any guy to jump in and help me nor did I even want them to play step dad. I kept my dating life separate from my mom life.

    Don't miss out on a great girl. Sometimes life happens in ways we don't expect. My suggestion is to get to know her and base how you want to move forward on how you feel about her personally first. And take it slow.

    There's no blue print or map on how life is supposed to happen. Everyone's journey is different and that's okay. Just enjoy the ride.

    [–] What is the best piece of tech you recommend to buy for under 50 dollars? RodeTheMidnightTrain 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Yes I learned this the hard way when lightening hit the dish on my house. The one TV and cable box NOT plugged into a surge protector were fried.

    [–] What have you seen genuinely shitty people do that they thought was perfectly acceptable? RodeTheMidnightTrain 24 points ago in AskReddit

    There really are no words. I'd like to say, I hope you guys find some peace, but I can't even imagine knowing my grandmother went through something like that.

    The staff is obviously covering something (or a lot of things) up. At the very least, I hope the perpetrators meet their karma.

    Hugs to you and your family from a former Montanan.

    [–] What have you seen genuinely shitty people do that they thought was perfectly acceptable? RodeTheMidnightTrain 792 points ago in AskReddit

    I'm sorry your family went through that, and my condolences for the loss of your grandmother.

    No one should ever go through that. Like how were both of her femurs broken??

    [–] What's a red flag you ignored? RodeTheMidnightTrain 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Seriously I think it's a requirement as a teenager to do a bunch of dumb things. We all have our stories.

    What counts is you broke up with him when you saw the proof. Smart move.

    [–] What everyday household items are actually way more dangerous than we give them credit for? RodeTheMidnightTrain 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Well no.. because I don't have a scrotum, but I burnt myself pretty well.

    Forgot the iron was on, set it on the bed for some dumb reason (rushing probably??) , sat down on the bed, hot iron fell against me and got me a couple times somehow. I'm assuming because I initially just jumped back not realizing what was going on at first.

    I do not recommend. Was not fun. Although probably comical to watch. Not my proudest moment.

    [–] Dust storm in Sydney, no filter, just strange lighting from the orange dust. RodeTheMidnightTrain 2 points ago in pics

    Exactly how close to the sun are you?

    The sun doesn't look like that in my hemisphere.

    Maybe the rumors are true about Australia...

    [–] [Request] I’m sick of buying a new pair of shoes every 4-6 months. I walk/hike for ~5-7 miles every day for work. I have fairly wide feet and always seem to break through in the pinky toe area. Help! RodeTheMidnightTrain 8 points ago in BuyItForLife

    Have you tried Merrell brand?

    Also as far as tennis shoes, I've found that Under Armour holds up better than Nike for long term use such as yours.

    I also walk several miles per day at work and feel your pain. I'm a woman and have found that men's shoes tend to be wider which helps me.

    [–] 2 American women detained after speaking Spanish in Montana file suit RodeTheMidnightTrain 9 points ago in WTF

    As someone who grew up mostly in Montana, this embarrasses me for my state. Just because Spanish isn't heard much around here. Could that guy have been any more ignorant?

    [–] Totally True Too RodeTheMidnightTrain 2 points ago in FunnyandSad

    That was actually really sad when he was talking about it. Such a twisted story though. How one guy can manipulate a whole family

    [–] Man explains to the news how he accidentally bought turnips instead of tulips for wife RodeTheMidnightTrain 4 points ago in MadeMeSmile

    That's actually kind of sweet, especially when he says "I thought I did good"

    This is just about the epitome of it's the thought that counts
