    And it was in that moment where Mr. Wickers learned the important skill of being cute on demand. He would later go on to never get in trouble again.

    [–] Gloves that can convert sign language into auditory voice mynameisnothannah 7 points ago in Damnthatsinteresting

    Couple things.

    1. What about non-manual signs (NMS)? NMS often change the grammatical meaning of a phrase. For instance, the difference between a statement and a question relies on the position of the eyebrows and how you hold your body. It doesn't look like the gloves have a way of capturing that. Additionally, this just looks like signed English? Will the gloves translate actual ASL syntax?

    2. Was the Deaf Community represented in this project? Not only is it important for them to have a presence in this kind of thing, but they also might have avoided simple mistakes, like signing "me name" instead of "my name".

    [–] What's the "went through med school just to realize you couldn't stand the sight of blood" of your job field? mynameisnothannah 1 points ago in AskReddit

    My major involves a lot of pedagogical reading which can be really boring sometimes. When it is, I read it aloud as though I'm presenting the material at a conference or TedTalk, and that really helps me get through it and even understand it better.

    And yes, I hold for applauses.

    Very clever! Good job, baker!

    [–] (Serious) what’s the stupidest thing you have ever said out loud? mynameisnothannah 5 points ago in AskReddit

    Recently I looked at a coworker and said, "How crazy is it that we could live to see the year 3000?"

    As soon as I said it, I remembered that the next century will be 2100, not 3000.

    [–] What’s the most inappropriate thing you’ve witnessed at a funeral? mynameisnothannah 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Two weeks ago, I went to my grandfather's funeral in Arlington National Cemetery. Much of his family is from the midwest, so other than my immediate family, I didn't know a lot of people there. Five teenagers (think "woke", oversized glasses, Post Malone shirt -vibe) were sitting at a table away from my family when we arrived at the hotel the day before the funeral, all of them playing on their phones. I had never met them so I assumed they were with a different party.

    The next day, I see them walk into the waiting room at Arlington, immediately take the few seats available (skirting passed seniors that could have sat down) and play on their phones, looking completely bored.

    During the burial, they kept trying to stand directly in front of me trying to SnapChat the ceremony.

    These kids were at a once-in-a-lifetime ceremony at Arlington National Cemetary, surrounded by people saying goodbye to an amazing man (whom I'm not sure they'd spent much time with), scouring the place for internet sympathy. What's worse is that since my grandma hired a videographer, so the professional video will show them with their phones out.

    tl;dr: Teens SnapChat my Poppy's funeral at Arlington National Cemetary.

    [–] Any support would be greatly appreciated mynameisnothannah 11 points ago in babies

    Kids are resilient, especially when they have strong parents like yourself. Hold out hope.

    [–] How do I (32f) ask my sister (34f) not to bring her unvaccinated child around my newborn? mynameisnothannah 2 points ago in relationship_advice

    Late to the conversation. I'd advise placing the reasoning for your decision on your sister.

    "I do not want [the unvaccinated child] around my newborn because of your decision not to vaccinate him/her."

    This way, the agent is your sister, not on the child (it isn't the kid's fault that he/she wasn't vaccinated). It also implies that the child might be able to be around your child in the future if that decision is reversed.

    Good luck and tell us how it goes.

    [–] Discouraged while bagging. mynameisnothannah 5 points ago in ChickFilA

    This person's right! A lot of the times, the guest didn't order what they thought they did.

    I'm not sure what your manager's view on it is, but I know taking a second to double check the bag is worth it. Usually, guests don't mind waiting a few extra seconds of they know it's going to be right.

    Again, you're doing fine! It takes practice and it seems like you're invested in and passionate about your job. Good job!

    [–] Fellow gay and trans Team Members, what’s your experience been like working at CFA? mynameisnothannah -6 points ago in ChickFilA

    In terms of behind-the-back comments, that happens a lot unfortunately, especially with older, Christian leadership. Lots of crass, holier-than-thou stuff. I'm all for the loving your neighbor, being a leader in your community, being a "steward". I think that's what makes CFA such a great place to work.

    However, since so many people apply to CFA because their beliefs align with the company and since the same leadership from above hire those people, there's a lot of talk that wouldn't fly at other places.

    For instance, I can't think of another job where a coworker can ask if you've had sex before marriage and get away with it. I have no doubt that these same people would ask hurtful questions to someone that is gay if they had the chance.

    Edit: Not LGBT, but an ally :)

    [–] Guess you can say I'm kinda like a big deal.. mynameisnothannah 2 points ago in ChickFilA

    I went on a leadership trip a few summers ago. Learning the history of the company is so cool! Congrats and enjoy!

    [–] CB mom demands access to my swimming pool mynameisnothannah 1 points ago in ChoosingBeggars

    I work at a quick-service resturant and once had a whole ordeal with a woman whose daughter was in the car. Once everything was settled, I headed back inside and tried to shrug it off. A minute later the woman storms back in and screams at me because her "daughter said we were laughing at them".

    The kid couldn't have been more than 12 and already had this act down.

    [–] CB mom demands access to my swimming pool mynameisnothannah 11 points ago in ChoosingBeggars

    Oof. I always feel bad for the kids that have to directly witness their parents pulling this kind of stuff. The kids either a.) are extremely embarrassed by their parent or b.) learn this behavior and replicate it as adults. Did she drag them into it at all?
