    [–] A going out of business 'sale' cousinleo 3 points ago in fuckthesepeople

    Illegal or not I can assure you the company did this regularly. They no longer exist now though, due to being taken over by another company in the same industry.

    [–] A going out of business 'sale' cousinleo 42 points ago in fuckthesepeople

    I used to work in a supermarket in my teens doing administration and pricing.

    What we used to do was take an item that cost, say £2, change the standard price ticket to £2.50 then put up a red promo/sale sign with the price as £2, telling everyone they save 50p.

    Genius...

    [–] Just a few important reminders about Shallow Grave. cousinleo 1 points ago in DotA2

    Can't blame me for not graving if I never skill it!

    Mid Dazzle all day, every day. I have no interest in running around babysitting the other cores.

    [–] Working class tales cousinleo 2 points ago in MurderedByWords

    I agree that not every company or employer can afford to give PTO, let alone 18 months of it. Thats why I said, depending on your employer.

    For example, my employer will give up to 1 year full pay if you're off ill and then it drops to half pay after that.

    Another thing we have in the UK, is that if you have a known illness or condition prior to being employed and your employer knows about this they cannot penalise you for any time you have off due to an existing condition. This includes withholding pay and/or dismissal.

    What is shocking to me and others like me in the EU is that these things don't exist in the US, at least not as widespread or as common as it is over here.

    Yes, most decent and compassionate employers, would give you full pay until such time they deemed it no longer financially viable to have an employee on full pay who isn't at work.

    One example being a guy I worked with who was off for a year and a half on full pay until they finally terminated his contract after a review.

    I understand your viewpoint but, quite frankly, million and billion dollar companies could do with a little more compassion and a lot less greed. Worst case scenario they should allow employees to go off unpaid in certain circumstances, such as a dying child with cancer.

    That way they aren't a financial drain but still have a job to go back to. Which happens to be another option we have in the UK.

    I'm the UK, depending on your employer, you would be able to take extended breaks classed as compassionate leave and be paid in full while off.

    I'm not sure if this is sarcasm or not...

    [–] 2 for the price of one. cousinleo 1 points ago in Tinder

    In the 3 years I've been using Tinder I've stumbled on to a threesome, once. So you're right, it happens but it's very rare.

    [–] Men who pursue casual relationships, how do you balance honesty and avoiding emotional attachments? cousinleo 3 points ago in datingoverthirty

    It works as long as you're upfront about it, like everyone has already said.

    I outline in the first few messages that all I'm interested in is spending time together casually and sex. No dating and no relationship.

    Some agree to it and want the same, the others don't and we wish each other luck with our search and unmatch.

    There's been one instance where the other party got emotionally involved and I had to reiterate what I said at the beginning - that this isn't a relationship and will never be one. They may not like it but that's on them, not you.

    [–] What is your favorite hero and why? cousinleo 1 points ago in TrueDoTA2

    Meepo.

    I'm mediocre at best but I just love the challenge of having to play and control 4 heroes as opposed to just one, so I spam him relentlessly until he gets banned then I pick Brew so I get 3 heroes every 2 minutes instead.

    [–] Is it easier for women to find a relationship, regardless of looks? cousinleo 4 points ago in amiugly

    It's easier for women, regardless of looks, to find men to have sex with them but not necessarily be in a relationship with them.

    [–] Because ISP's definitely do that.. /s cousinleo 3 points ago in quityourbullshit

    It is correct.

    For example, some people switch their router off at the mains when going out, going to bed etc. to save power.

    Frequent drops on your line like this get interpreted as disconnections by the DSLAM or MSAN depending on your broadband type.

    As explained by others the DLM will then lower your internet speeds when it comes back on and keep it there to assess the line is stable enough to go back up, at which point the DLM will raise the speeds until it hits a stable and comfortable level or your maximum attainable, whichever happens first.

    [–] Is the community usually this toxic? cousinleo 1 points ago in DotA2

    If you're interested I'd be happy to do bot matches with you - PM me and I'll add you on Steam.

    I only ever reached 4.5k but be happy to teach you the basics.

    [–] Do any women here seriously worry about their safety when meeting guys they've never met before? cousinleo 5 points ago in datingoverthirty

    Sometimes vetting isn't even an option.

    I have no online presence or social media etc. so my prospective dates can't ever verify anything about me other than taking what I tell them via Tinder/Bumble and/or text, at face value.

    [–] Have you needed another perspective to enjoy a game? cousinleo 2 points ago in patientgamers

    I have this exact same issue and I believe it's because I've just plain burnt out gaming to the point where it no longer interests me.

    I used to love spending hours playing games, trying to 100% them all. I'd visit stores and midnight launches. Grind away in online multiplayer and be super competitive.

    Now I'm sitting with 400+ games in my Steam library and numerous consoles with a lot of the latest titles and a backlog of games I've always wanted to play and no desire to even switch them on.

    It's sad and I miss my hobby but the thought of even firing a title up and getting in to it exhausts me and sounds incredibly dull.

    [–] I guess I gave him a decent target cousinleo 55 points ago in Tinder

    1. Be Attractive.

    2. Don't be unattractive.

    [–] Being politically ignorant and living under a rock is much more healthy and satisfying. cousinleo 5 points ago in unpopularopinion

    People have a right to vote but not an obligation and are just as entitled to abstain from voting at all, ever.

    It's right up there with Euro Truck Simulator 2.

    [–] I googled and maybe caught a liar cousinleo 1 points ago in datingoverthirty

    Having no information online and bo social media presence at all can also be a red flag when dating as I have discovered.

    Any woman I've matched with online inevitably Google's me and jumps on Facebook, only for me to be met with questions and distrust because I don't exist.

    [–] I really don't get why this sub goes so nuts about ghosting. cousinleo 2 points ago in datingoverthirty

    Thats rough and I'm sorry to hear that.

    Any situation that's more than 3-4 dates long warrants some respect from the rejecting party to inform the other that they no longer wish to continue and hopefully some reasons why.

    In an ideal world, almost, every interaction after the first date should warrant the same but some people ruin it for everyone else as they aren't able to handle rejection like responsible adults.

    I'm just sorry that you, and many others, got ghosted after having been seeing someone for so long.
