    [–] AITA for buying the dress that my friend wanted but couldn’t get because they don’t have it in plus size? shelley1005 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NTA. I can understand why your friend got her feelings hurt, but that in no way makes you an asshole. I might have asked a friend if they minded if I got that dress if I was in your situation, but that doesn't mean you did anything wrong.

    [–] AITA for leaving my toddler with my 'childfree' sister for a few minutes, resulting in a trip to the emergency room? shelley1005 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    YTA. Your sister said no and seemed to be pressured by you and your mom. She wasn't trained and didn't feel comfortable and made a mistake. So did you not listening to her non pressured answer of no. I hope you kiddo is healing up and doing well.

    [–] AITA for crashing my friends car and refusing to pay for the repairs? shelley1005 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NTA for not wanting to pay since it seems like a shitty thing to do to someone who put themselves out to protect a drunk and disorderly friend. However, have a friend who is a lawyer? Give them a ring and ask them about legal, not moral liability in the situation. If the friend or mom sues you, you should know your rights and responsibilities when you operate someone else's property. Best of luck to ya.

    [–] AITA for not letting a friend use my umbrella in a Japanese downpour? shelley1005 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    YTA. I'm glad I don't call you a friend of mine. You decided being right justified you being unkind.

    [–] Hard time deciding what Neighborhood I should be looking at, hoping for advice shelley1005 2 points ago in bostonhousing

    In the areas of Back Bay, Fenway and some areas of Brookline, parking will be a huge issue or will cost you big bucks. Also, it'll cost you a lot more to live there then areas like JP or Allston or Quincy.

    [–] Gotta love Cora's reaction at Bogey's hustle single shelley1005 4 points ago in redsox

    They might. It was earlier in the season and was a kinda cold drizzly night when the game started. If I remember correctly, the woman said that Henry gives his seats to fans for any games he isn't using them. It's a smart move, it is a good gesture with fans and also shows the seata on TV often as always full. I've seen former players sit in those seats and also seen D'Angelo Ortiz sitting in them a couple times this season.

    [–] Gotta love Cora's reaction at Bogey's hustle single shelley1005 8 points ago in redsox

    Just sheer luck. My friend and I had standing room only tickets and someone from the Sox approached us and asked if we would like a seat upgrade. We said yes thinking it would be a grandstand seat or something and then she said Mr. Henry was offering his seats for the game. He also paid for the wait service that we had for the game. It was amazing. You could see right in the dugout and sometimes hear what people were saying.

    [–] Gotta love Cora's reaction at Bogey's hustle single shelley1005 2 points ago in redsox

    The first two rows right next to the dugout are John Henry's seats. I got to sit in them once and it was a once in a lifetime experience.

    [–] Women have the power to stop mass shootings shelley1005 9 points ago in TrueOffMyChest

    It's amazing that ignorant sacks of shit like this always find a way to say women can be blamed for the bad violent behavior of men. This self professed incel is basically saying that women are the more powerful sex with his bullshittery.

    [–] Charlestown MA street parking - disaster or doable? shelley1005 1 points ago in bostonhousing

    I think you'll be fine. You might have to do some searching for spots or go to the grocery store during times when people may be out and it would be easier to come home to a spot. I did that for a while when I was living in a densely packed area and it was fine. The hardest part to manage was dealing with street parking and the snow. I ended up getting rid of my car when it started being a clunker anyways and using a Zipcar or the T to do my weekly shopping. I would never go back to having a car unless I moved out of the city.

    [–] How common is the "Jointly and Severally" Lease Clause? shelley1005 1 points ago in bostonhousing

    It's pretty standard. A landlord is providing an apartment for rent each month and that service doesn't change no matter who moves in and moves out. The landlord can go after the tenant still living there and isn't forced to chase the tenant who abandoned. It becomes the responsibility of the tenant who lives there to chase and be made whole by the fleeing tenant. I would never have a lease as a landlord that didn't have that clause. It's also an incredibly smart clause in Boston where it can takes months to get the remaining tenant out of the unit either through them agreeing to leave or being evicted, so the landlord needs to be able to protect their asset.

    [–] AITA I kicked a girl out of my house party for insinuating a drink I made her could be drugged. shelley1005 11 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    YTA. The woman didn't know you and didn't want to accept a drink from a stranger that she didn't see make the drink. Add into it that it was a drink given to her by someone who observed her enough to know what type of drink she is drinking. I would have declined as well. Sure, she could have been more of a "nice little girl" and lied about why she wasn't taking the drink, but instead she was honest. I wouldn't have taken the drink either. I might have been nicer about it since when men are confronted or rejected sometimes they become angry and I might not feel safe, but all in all....I support her decision.

    [–] AITA for refusing to give my stepdaughter my late mother’s ring that’s traditionally passed down mother to daughter? shelley1005 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    INFO: If you had a biological daughter and she expressed wanting the ring because it is valuable, would you deny her the ring and be buried with it? If so, then NAH. If not, then YTA. You'd just be denying her because you don't consider her yours. If that is the case, at least your daughter knows.

    [–] AITA for sleeping over at my gfs 4 nights a week making her roommate uncomfortable and causing her to flip out? shelley1005 1 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    YTA. Sure, it may be the next natural step for you and your girlfriend before moving in together, but that doesn't mean you can force her roommate who pays rent to live there to go along the ride on that. Once you and your gf knew she was uncomfortable with you basically sleeping there more than you sleep home and did nothing about you, you both became the assholes.

    [–] Ct is just..... good lord he’s amazing shelley1005 3 points ago in MtvChallenge

    Ahh, I thought he did and saw pics, but must be mistaken. I just enjoy how close the former enemies have gotten as they've both gotten older and understand each other better.

    [–] Ct is just..... good lord he’s amazing shelley1005 43 points ago in MtvChallenge

    What is always amazing to me is how close those two got when they did rivals together and after. They both have attended each other's weddings and now are total allies when they are on challenges together.

    [–] [Tenant - Louisiana] My landlord and her (narcotics officer) boyfriend found out I smoke weed. shelley1005 0 points ago in Landlord

    You haven't done anything to violate the lease. If the landlord tries to evict you, admit nothing and make them prove their allegations. Having said that, if it were me...I'd look to be moving when my lease is up.

    P.S. Any chance you can try to either get edibles or use one of those pot vape pens? It would make it so you could continue to use marijuana, but not smell of weed or get the attention of the landlord or her boyfriend?

    [–] AITA for telling my ex I refuse to share custody of our daughter? shelley1005 0 points ago in AmItheAsshole

    NTA. You are holding him and his parents to their agreement. Do you have anything in text or writing from him or them from back when you were pregnant and they suggested this deal? I know no one keeps old texts and what have you, but it would be helpful to show that in court when he files for custody.

    [–] I love how Julie is exposing ________ shelley1005 5 points ago in BigBrother

    I found it all very ironic as she ended the interview telling Jack she wasn't going to "gyp" him being able to see his goodbye videos. Maybe clean your own house first before calling other people out on their dirt.

    [–] Got drunk and fell asleep on the couch while watching a show with a friend of a friend (we had never met prior). shelley1005 0 points ago in niceguys

    It's amazing how many people think joking about rape is not a big deal or so easily waved away. That's okay. It says more about you. I'm done explaining why it's not funny or cool or acceptable to the types who defend it and I imagine have done it.
