2021.12.04 19:59 JuanWeel Trail riders, do you ride technical trails that are covered in leaves?
I just wanted to hear what others had to say. I was riding a trail today that was totally covered in leaves. I could see some roots that peaked out, but there was a lot of stuff that was left unseen. I decided to go back and ride a bike path.

2021.12.04 19:59 jessmess1980 Why my mental health is a mess. Long rant ahead….
First, I hate the ‘S’ word. Call it what it is, hitting. Let’s look at a couple scenarios….you’re driving and someone rubs into you. You get out of the car and hit them. What happens? You get arrested for assault. How about this…you’re a boss and a subordinate makes a mistake. Do you take off your belt and hit them? No. That’s assult, and you’d probably get fired. One more….a small child says a bad word. Can you hit them repeatedly? Yes. Is it ok to do that? Legally, yes. Just call it “a spanking” and suddenly you’re doing a good thing.
What a load of bullshit! On no way is that ok! Either you have your hand all over a child’s butt, or your hitting them with an object. That’s so wrong. In my case it was a 250 pound man against a little or eventually teen girl. Let’s take even further and have a hand all over my naked butt. That’s not physically and sexually abusive. It’s good old fashioned discipline. So fucked up. No one knows. The marks from the belt were hiding under my pants because I “deserved” it. Following that with “I did it because I love you” doesn’t help
I hate the people who say “I got spanked and came out ok.” No, you’re a bully that likes to hit children. “There’s a fine line between spanking and beating”. THEY’RE THE SAME FUCKING THING! If you can justify that shit, you’re a monster. You’re not teaching the kid anything other than to be scared of you. I know from experience. I was scared of my parents, especially my dad. He hit hard!
Guess what? We don’t turn out fine. We’re a mess in therapy. We have traumatic flashbacks. We’re people pleasers because we can’t handle anyone mad. I’m scared to make noise because I got beat for that a lot. The list of problems goes on. I didn’t learn right from wrong. I learned to be terrified of rocking the boat for life. Beating a child into compliance doesn’t teach ANYTHING! So, I’m passionate about this topic and ending caveman parenting. Thanks for reading. If you want to discuss further, just message me.

2021.12.04 19:59 tapestryweave Urban Outfitters Retail Hell
Hello all! I’ve been reading many of your stories on this subreddit and I thought it was time to share my own. I want you all to understand that at the time I was very young, I didn’t know my labor had value, I didn’t know I was being exploited, and I was very clueless. I hope other retail workers can learn from this and not make the same mistakes I did.
TL;DR - I walked out and quit in the middle of a shift because I started having severe panic attacks due to the working conditions and hounding management.
I had always worked retail since I was 16 years old. I always enjoyed it because I always had awesome co-workers, decent pay and surprisingly understanding and empathetic managers. When I got into my dream school I had to move to the city and find a new job. I applied for urban, at the time I assumed, since they are a more high end store, they would pay more. At this point the most I had been payed was $13 an hour, which at the time was great for a retail job in my eyes. The interview process was actually really difficult and lengthy. I assumed because of this vetting process, I would be compensated fairly.
LESSON #1: ALWAYS ASK ABOUT WHAT THE EXACT PAY RATE YOU WILL RECIVE DURING THE INTERVIEW
I wish I could go back and tell myself this. They gave me a range saying, depending on experience, you can make $9-14 an hour. They told me this when I had signed the paperwork right before starting the job. I assumed since I had been working retail for 5 years at that point they would at least compensate me what I had been making at my last gig. I was so, so clueless at the time. Never assume anything. The first day they told me what I would be payed, not during the interview or paperwork process.
LESSON #2: IF THE MANAGEMENT LIES ABOUT WHAT THEY WILL BE PAYING YOU… RUN!!
Turns out they lied to my face, I was actually making $8.25 an hour. They began to explain to me that the “depending on experience” part of the pay scale meant “experience at urban” not experience at other retail stores. Very shady. I tried to bargain, they gave me the whole “well let’s see how you do in a month” talk and moved on quickly. They didn’t want to hear me out, and my dumb ass thought this was a normal practice from retail employers. I just went with it, expecting to get a raise that would never come. Whenever I would bring up pay they wouldn’t hear me out, sometimes threatening me with disciplinary action if I brought it up again.
The job was one of the most mind numbing experiences I have had in my life. Not trying to be over dramatic but at times I felt legitimately depressed and deprived of value during my time at urban outfitters. Usually it was easy for me to make friends at past retail jobs, I’m a pretty talkative person and love getting to know people, and customers too! The store was DEAD on weekdays. There was never anything to do because we always kept the store looking PERFECT at all times. I felt like an NPC robot roaming around the store waiting for people to come in that never would. When customers would come in they were the worst! The most entitled people I had ever met in my life! Children spoiled beyond reason! Parents who will drop thousands on their “special little girls”! My disdain for the wealthy stems from my time working here. At this job you weren’t even allowed to have a casual conversation with a coworker on the clock. When I was caught having a conversation with a coworker I was written up, there was no one in the store at the time.
LESSON 3: IF YOU GET WRITTEN UP FOR SOMETHING THAT IS CLEARLY BULLSHIT… LEAVE THAT JOB NOW!
I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I was written up, or threatened with a write up for the most bullshit things. But I’ll give a list:
-talking to a co worker -checking the time on my phone -having my phone on me -folding something incorrectly -taking a break for a minute longer than I was supposed to -talking about pay with my manager -talking about pay with other coworkers -reading a shitty urban outfitters poetry book when there was no one in the store -studying during my break
LESSON 4: YOUR LIFE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN WORK. IF YOU ARE SHAMED BECAUSE YOU WANT TO LIVE A LITTLE… QUIT!
I will end this post with the story of the time I decided to spend my weekend going to a music festival and requesting a couple of days off. They were genuinely upset with me that I was requesting days off and this had been the only time I’ve ever done so. They had a whole talk to me about how I need to value work more than my own life. I told them that I just wanted one weekend to myself where I could relax and have fun. Eventually they reluctantly let me have my weekend off. The day before the music festival they had scheduled me for 10 hours instead of my normal 6-8 hour shift. Instead of working on the sales floor like usual, they had me in the back room for the entire 10 hours unpacking boxes and folding clothing. I had no human contact for that 10 hours. I had a walkie talkie and they would not even respond to me. I couldn’t even listen to the shitty music they play over the speakers. By this time they had caught me on my phone while on the clock so many times that they started confiscating it before I could clock in, so I couldn’t even try to sneak a peak at what time it was. I finished the work within 4 hours and spent the rest of the time asking for something else to do. I was ignored. I asked if I could leave but they kept telling me they would find something for me to do, which they never did. They eventually came and took my walkie so I couldn’t communicate with anyone. For the rest of my shift I was essentially trapped inside of the back room waiting for them to give me something to do. I honestly felt like they were shaming and punishing me for trying to enjoy my weekend for once. Because of this and many other experiences I had working at this job where I had no control over what I did or how it was done, I developed panic attacks.
Almost every day before work I would wake up with a sense of dread and start hyperventilating because I realized I would have to go into that job. I realized I would have to go to that job where I had no control over what zone I worked in, no control over when I could take my break, no control over what I was to work on, and I couldn’t speak unless spoken to. One day I was a couple hours into my shift and they let me know that I would have to go to the back room again for the rest of my 8 hour shift. I began to have a breakdown, I had enough that that point. I stoped whatever remedial task I was doing, gave them my walkie and stormed out, never to return.
Conclusion: I let myself be exploited by a shitty company. I had been working in the retail industry for so long at that point, I didn’t know anything else. I just assumed this was normal. I was so young, and so clueless of what my actual rights were and what is fair and just. I let this happen to myself and waisted my own time and energy. Don’t let this happen to you, you are your own person. Your labor has so much value, your labor is special and should always be valued no matter what line of work you are in. Even if you are young like I was. If I had known of this Reddit page back in college I would have never done this job. I hope you learn a bit from my story, and don’t make the same mistakes I made. SOLIDARITY TODAY, SOLIDARITY TOMORROW, SOLIDARITY FOREVER!
Ps. The fucking discount isn’t even worth it BECAUSE THEY DONT EVEN PAY THEIR EMPLOYEES ENOUGH TO AFFORD THEIR SHITTY OVERPRICED CLOTHES!!! FUCK URBAN OUTFITTERS!!!

2021.12.04 19:59 acidtoyman How long should a pair of QKZ VK4s be expected to last?
My 10-year-old daughter had gone through a number of dollar-store earphone/IEMs, so I thought I'd buy her something a little longer-lasting for her birthday. I didn't want to sink much money into them, because I figured she wouldn't take good care of them anyways, so I bought some QKZ VK4s based on the stellar reviews for an IEM at this price. She seems pleased with them a month and a half later, but I keep seeing posts from people who say they've bought multiple sets because they don't last long. I have no intention of buying new sets every few months (in which case, I should've let her keep buying them from the dollar store). Have I made a mistake? How long do people's VK4s typically last?

Stay strong, I know these years can be tough but its in these times that you learn grow and truly blossom.

LET ME EXPLAIN
so i was on tiktok today and i saw yale’s african community and i immediately got jealous because 1) i’ve always wanted to go to yale, but ik i cannot get in and 2) it seemed super welcoming and i have yet to hear anybody complain about it
with that being said, i love myself some pwis, but i definitely feel as if i’d have an identity crisis without SOME black people in the picture (don’t take this the wrong way istg)…any ideas? the school must be greater than or equal to 5% black.
