How to move across country w baby

2023.06.03 00:56 booty_supply How to move across country w baby

Hey folks... getting stressed about this I'm moving across the country with a 6 month old baby and my spouse in 3 weeks. We have a service moving our things from old to new apartment which is great, but they say it can take 2 weeks to get there!! So that means we have to bring all the essentials on a plane with us I think?? Seems like it would be really expensive to pay plane to take all the extra baby gear like pack n play and bouncer and breastfriend, etc. is that even possible to fly with so much?? And what about moving frozen milk?? My supply dips pretty low during my period so I kind of have to keep my stash unless we switch to formula supplemental temporarily. Any advice appreciated.

2023.06.03 00:54 mthomas1217 Can a company force you to take 2 weeks off without pay as a salary employee?

My husband has worked at the same company for 25 yrs. Was recently promoted to IT manager. He was payed back pay for one month even though he has been doing the job for two months. Ok that sucks but don’t want to argue. Just happy to get the retro pay. Then today his boss calls and says that the company over spent after Covid and all the salary employees have to take two weeks off without pay before the end of August and they can’t be consecutive and they can’t overlap other people. The company he works for was just bought out by the new company that is implementing this plan but his old company did the same thing during Covid. I could mildly understand the Covid thing. No one knew what was going to happen and no one wanted to get laid off. But I think this is bullshit. They are basically taking back the money they just gave him. And to top it all off, the raise he just got was the first one in 10 years. I know all that raise and back pay crap is just shitty business but it is legal to force an employee to take time off without pay? The company is in Indiana and headquarters in Connecticut Thanks for any input.

2023.06.03 00:48 PuzzleheadedMoment33 My wage

Hello, I’ve working here for over a year with no pay raise and I make 11.50$ and red shirts being hired after me are coming in at around 13.50$. I’m one of the only red shirts in my store that actually does actually work, gutting Witt’s and having great attitudes as well as always being on time. My SM says he’s gonna give me a good review on the upcoming review next month to try and get me a good raise but I worry I won’t get what I feel I’m worth. I feel that with the new red shirts coming in at 13.50 with my work ethic and how good of an employee I am that I should get a raise to bring me up to 14.00$ but I worry that since that’s a big jump I will not receive that and will only be moved up to like 12.50 knowing autozone. I also know I can’t talk to anyone cause I know salaries aren’t supposed to be discussed. What should I do?

2023.06.03 00:39 SaablifeNC Hey all. Long time follower, first time poster. It's time for a new system I have had 3. I use 4 clips as I only wear it to work and out and about. Thinking of a longer piece better color match and maybe brush back and little salon visits any ideas?

Hey all. Long time follower, first time poster. It's time for a new system I have had 3. I use 4 clips as I only wear it to work and out and about. Thinking of a longer piece better color match and maybe brush back and little salon visits any ideas?
Just add a little more. I currently wear a French lace with a 1 inch poly I do use 4 to hold it to my bio hair. I sometimes supplement with tape, but not for an exposed hairline just for additional hold. I sometimes comb it straight and part it on either side. I hate having to have it glazed I stopped going to one salon as I always left as a.poodle. I went to another and prices keep going up. I don't want to pay $700 for a $300 piece. I had 1 clip to come off after it was replaced I noticed the hairs are almost gone around it. It was fine the day I went it. Humm but anyway. I sweat a lot and had a reaction to "bonding" that caused a piece to fail. I'm looking at a clip in piece but want to explore maybe taping the lace front so I can brush back my hair. Thank you for any suggestions

Some UK companies have some nerve…from an indeed job post
I was scrolling through indeed a few minutes ago and I noticed this marketing job post from a multinational company. As benefits it states 3 things that are not real benefits. 1) All employees are entitled at least to statutory sick pay 2) UK law now obliges every employer to offer a workplace pension. 3)Casual dress code is not truly a benefit per se, but a company choice. I still remember when employees in similar multinational companies weren’t taken for a ride. Back in the day ( till 2019) benefits included: training courses/ conferences budget, Perkbox and sometimes private healthcare. If we continue along these lines, next year they will say that water, office air conditioning and toilets are the benefits

2023.06.03 00:34 Illmi007 Certified Payroll

I have a client who did a job for a government agency. He didn't realize he needed certified payroll reports and is asking us to help for reports dating back to February.
We have the prevailing wage information by pay period so we know how many hours total the employees spent on the project, but I do not believe he has the daily breakdown of employee's hours. Would he run into any issues just spreading out the hours evenly throughout the week?
Again, we know the total hours are correct. The issue is the daily breakout of those hours.

2023.06.03 00:28 Historical-Rabbit861 Can full-time fed employees get paid a higher base wage during single-resource assignments?

Say you're a full-time fed employee, hired as a seasonal temp GS-5 Firefighter 1, and you go on a roll as a single-resource EMTF. Do you get a bump in pay for the duration of that roll?
I ask the question because I see that in the 2023 AD pay tables, the EMTF hourly wage is 47% higher than FFT1. Are those kinds of pay differences just lost without a trace if you're a full-time fed, no matter what qual you're ordered up as on a given assignment?

Residential Contracting 101
With over 20 years of building experience, I would like to share with you my insights in navigating becoming a successful contractor. With many different avenues of the building world its key to understand what problems will arise on any given day. A man once told a saying that stuck-the 6 p’s in life- Piss Poor Preparation leads to Piss Poor Performance. Preparation builds everything in construction, without preparation the jobsite will not run correctly. The best advice I was ever given was to learn a little about every trade giving you the ability to understand trade lingo and secrets. An example would be painters use the terminology flash; this means when the sub structure bleads through the paint. Subcontractors will give the best pricing if they respect your knowledge of the industry. If the subcontractor feels they will have to hold your hand through the job they will charge an extra fee…i.e. I call it the aggravation fee. In this blog I will explain the key elements in finding success in all aspects of the industry. Contracting is a physically and emotionally demanding job which requires planning and foresight to complete projects on time within budget. Picking your customer is just as important as picking your employees or subcontractors. I have worked for some of the most demanding customers leading me to question at the end if the job was even worth it. Sleepless nights, constant changes, lack of payment, lawsuit threats, adding work that was in the contract are just a few things you could face with a tough customer. With so many moving parts at all times it is critical to be able to adapt to changes within a short time frame. Materials will come in damaged, subcontractors will be late, employees will get sick, but the deadline you set does not change. The stress can be overwhelming at times keeping your mind in a good place is key to navigating all that is thrown at you. Choosing your client picking the right jobs-Keep these questions in mind The first question to be asked is what the time frame is to start the job to see if it fits within the timeframe for your business. If the time frame doesn’t work then move on from the project or let them know when you would be available to start. If the client really wants to use, they will wait until you are available. Taking on too much work will only lead to problems. Construction is a serviced based business, staying on top of the project and client will eliminate an unhappy customer and construction issues that will be over seen. With online presence if details are missed and customer service lacks it will only be a matter of time the phone will not ring. The second question to be asked to the client is do they have a budget in mind for the project. If they answer yes this is good, follow through with what the budget is. If the budget seems low let them know, this will eliminate a tire kicker, educate them on what the price range could be. If the budget seems reasonable then continue the discussion to the next question. If they answer no let them know that you can give them an estimate to see if the project is feasible with their finical capabilities. Taking on a job that is not correctly budgeted will lead to an unsatisfied customer due to non-transparency of the construction cost. The third question to be asked is anyone else bidding on the job, if the answer is yes, understand you might just be number check for the contractor doing the job. Dig a little deeper and find out how many numbers they are getting and why. If your business model is to be competitive be completely transparent with customer, this will gain trust with them. Let them know you get what you pay for and if you they choose the lowest bid it could lead into lack of quality of work.
The fourth question I will ask is there any specific subcontractors they wanted to use. If the answer is yes then I would explain to them you only use the subcontractors you have a working relationship with. Otherwise, this could backfire as the subcontractor might not show, do subpar work, talk behind your back to the homeowner. In my experience I would stay away from using any homeowner to alleviate problems down the road. A quick conversation now can save headaches down the road. The fifth question I will ask are planning on getting the job permitted, this needs to be known it takes more time for the permitting process. Plans will have to drawn submitted and approved to the city before work can commence. The sixth question I will ask if a residential remodel is are you going to be living through the remodel if yes understand this will take more time to navigate the project due to answering questions and cleaning the house on a daily occurrence. I would recommend seeing if the customer would be willing to move into an Airbnb or friends for at least the demo portion of the project. If they do plan on living through the remodel add a couple hours a day to accommodate the extra time that will be required. The seventh question I would ask in a residential remodel is how old the house is to see if there is asbestos that would need to removed by a proper company. A home built before 1979 will most likely have some asbestos in the house, use a licensed company with proper insurance to dispose of the materials. If everything looks good to this point find out a little more about the client personality. If the client seems reasonable, I would bid the job. Unreasonable people can cause you more stress than its worth. These are some red flags I would look out for. Some jobs are not worth the money. Very demanding in the way you are going to perform your job- I.e., tell you how you are going to do your job- You’re the professional not them! Give you a hard time about your price- haggle with price you estimated- The price is the price! If they are a family with little money and you want to help them out is one thing, if they are trying to beat you down is another. Mention they have a lawyer-there is no need for them to bring up that they have a lawyer - Run for the hills as if the job goes south, you will be the one losing out! Tell you what the payment terms are. It’s your business you get paid how it works for your company. If you want to get paid every Friday, put it into your contract-If the clients do not agree move on it will save you frustrations If they talk bad about the last contractor, chances are they will talk bad about you. There is a reason why the contractor does not work for them anymore, unless he did subpar work this a red flag Clients are using an interior decorator that will purchasing all of the materials- The materials could be ordered incorrectly by the interior designer your company will not make the mark-up it deserves. Interior decorators usually add time to the job as well as act like your boss. Charging a little extra for the time and stress that it will entail is only fair. Clients want to purchase the materials- You are using your knowledge to buy the correct materials-The mark up on the materials keeps the doors open working for wages only pays the bills The husband and wife do not get along-You will become the mediator between the couple it will lead to taking sides a losing proposition- A drama free work place is always best! Dangling carrot-if you do this job the next one will be better-Only look at what there offering at the present moment, if its not a good fit do not take the job for a job down the road…Its not worth chasing a job that might not happen! The Art of the Sale First things first selling your company is all about presentation. In meeting your clients for the first time show up with a collared golf shirt tucked in, belt, nice jeans, and newer shoes. Have a truck that a clean, no dents scratches, preferably washed the day you are going into your meeting. Have a leather note pad that is clean no dirt or paint visible. Show up 5 minutes early, if you’re running a little late shoot them a text to let them know. Treat the situation as if were going on a first date, best foot forward. As you introduce yourself give them a warm greeting, letting them know you are very interested in the work. Find out a little about them, hobbies, where they lived, etc etc. You are going to be working with them on a daily basis its nice to know what makes them tick. Having a good working relationship from the start is key forming a solid relationship. As the conversation progresses find out who wears the pants in the family…ie who’s the final decision maker. If its fits the wife, chances it is…..then kindly let the husband know happy wife happy life when their in a stall mate on an issue. As your looking at the project throw in some suggestions of what you think would look good from past experiences, this will get their attention that you have knowledge and want what’s best for them. If you see ways to save them money in their project let them know, money is a large point of the sale keep that in mind. Mention that you’re not the least expensive contractor but you’re not the most expensive either. Your customer satisfaction is your number one goal which leads to more time spent on keeping them happy. One happy customer will lead to another, one unsatisfied customer leads to work in the future. Bring up the fact the finishing the job on time is key goal to your business, many contractors run several jobs at once causing the jobs to be finished way behind schedule. You must stand out as having integrity, good morals, and the ability to problem solve to get the job. The clients will be testing you to see if you’re a good fit as well. Keep in mind as you take your notes that you must not forget anything they mention as it will come back before the job is completed…i.e. we mentioned that to you before we started the job! Take pictures of the proposed area for work, that way you can use it to better right your estimate. Let them know you will give them a detailed outline of when the job will be completed letting them see how long each phase will take and correlate it with your payment schedule. Before you leave their house let them know when the estimate will be sent to them. MAKE SURE YOU HIT THAT DEADLINE! Once you sent the email over with estimate make sure you get confirmation that they received it. Wait at least 2 days before checking with them, hopefully they contact you first! If they want negotiate the price, let them know that it is the best price that you can manage, its not worth losing money before you start. I closed 80% of the work I estimated by being very transparent and friendly. If you come off with an attitude charge double what the going rates are you might only land 1 out of 10 jobs as well as getting the reputation of being expensive. Bidding the job Looking up industry standards on pricing is what I would go buy for pricing. If you google the coat of any installation there will be a cost range for everything. Looking at the cost ranging from high to low I would tend to be in the middle. Some items might be low on the internet if this is the case use your best judgment not to lose money. Closing sales is key to success and keep the doors open for business. Being in the middle on pricing is key as most customers shy away from contractors that are extremely low or high on the price range. I tend not bid out hourly as wages do not pay for retirement. Bidding is better as customers no the exact price of the cost of construction. It also keeps the job moving quicker as time and material contractors take longer to complete projects…Thus costing the client more money and valuable time they could spend in their house. Using a Contract Using a detailed estimate tied to a contract covers your butt in 99% of the time. Having a piece of mind that every aspect of the job is covered in the estimate and contract protects both your company and the client. Key terms to include in your estimate/contract are. Have a schedule on excel showing the start dates and dates of each trade this will show the customer you are organized with time lines. If not written in the detailed in the estimate the item is excluded- This ensures if its not written down its not included. TBD- To be Determined- A phrase on a line item that has yet to had final decision of products or service needed. -The pricing will follow the decisions to be finalized Give out what your written warranty will be for parts and labor this changes state to state. If the homeowner provides the product than no warranty will be given on that particular item. In the contract have a start date and end date with the verbiage subject to change due to weather, product delivery, change orders Have a progress payment schedule to ensure the client understands when funding will be expected-Including if not payment is rendered service to the project will stop. Have written terms of how change orders will be charged-cost plus 20% or a set fee Make sure in your contract that arbitration is required versus going to court- This will save lawyer fees and going to court Many contracts can be found online and each state requires different contracts
Finding leads Finding leads is easy with the right network of people. I personally do not find working for friends or family members a good fit. Relationships get strained when money is involved, causing undue stress for both parties. I have listed a couple of ways to build a network or find work using the internet. Get in contact with realtor’s- Realtors have a big client base of homeowners who need work done Contact local Architects to see if they are working with any general contractors Leave some business cards at your local materials suppliers-Doowindow/lumber-many times clients will ask salesman for a referral. Join a business networking group- BNI is one of many Join a internet website lead generation company- Houzz, Angie’s List, Home Advisor, thumbtack, Yelp run an ad on craigslist Use a marketing company to market your website-This could become costly with little results Create a Facebook business page Create a Yelp business page
Building your subcontractor base Having 2 subcontractors for every trade, gives you the flexibility of completing jobs on time if the one the subcontractors is too busy at the time you need their service. Your subcontractors are the face of your business, choose owner run companies that are professional. Check to make sure there license are up to date..ie workman’s comp, liability insurance, state license. Choosing subcontractors with lettered vans, logoed t-shirts is s key to looking professional in the clients’ eyes. In the past I have gotten a lot of subcontractors for material supply shops, stopping by jobsites, researching the internet using Yelp, Home Advisor, etc etc. Once you get one good subcontractor ask them if they know any other trades they would recommend. One good subcontractor leads to another in most cases. The key to having a good group of subcontractors is to let them know that you are there to get help them get the job done. They do work for you but without them you are nothing…keep that in mind! Make them aware a clean jobsite is required at the end of everyday to ensure the proper safety for all parties including theirs! Over the years I have referred a lot of companies work when there is only 1 trade needed. Referring work to subcontractors is a good way to get top priority when you have work that needs to be completed ASAP. Timing is everything in times of emergency having a good group of subcontractors will make your business run smoothly. Pay your subcontractors immediately after performing work, this will make them feel appreciated! A happy subcontractor is one that will gladly go the extra mile for you knowing that there not just a number to your business! Buying lunch once a week for the jobsite is always a good token of appreciation!
Supervising In supervising any jobsite its key to monitor everything from materials on hand, weather, vehicle parking (if applicable), jobsite safety, and subcontractors’ workmanship. If you hired a professional there should be little supervision in the work being performed, on rare occasions a new hire might need some mentoring to get the results completed correctly. If you see a problem with there work address it with the worker directly, no need to call his boss…. building repour with the worker letting him know you got his back goes miles down the road! Checking in on the job first in the morning to answer any questions or changes that need to be conveyed and once in the afternoon to make sure all work be completed is done per construction industry standards. A job that is run blindly will have many more issues than one that is watched over. I have seen many jobs with no site supervision, leading to subpar quality work as well as safety hazards. Its better to be like an eagle than cluck like a turkey!
Working with the City/Inspectors On permitted jobs the city and site inspector will be a large part of how smoothly the job runs. Each phase of construction has an inspection allowing for the project to continue. Make sure your subcontractors are aware that the project is inspected before starting the job. The best way to stay on his good side is to provide a clean jobsite and having the job built to the highest standards possible. When having the site inspected be courteous to the inspector asking any questions or concerns you have with the work during the job. Being completely transparent will save you aggravation of problems down the road. The more he trust you the better if you seem sneaky or rude he will make your life a living nightmare! Many inspectors will have an attitude towards you….I suggest keeping quiet and doing what ever he wants….he’s the boss no need to get in a pissing match you will not win at. How to deal with irate customer Stay calm during any argument with an irate customer. Never raise your voice or show that you are bothered by their disgruntled behavior. If the customer is trying to get more from you than agreed upon stand your ground. Worst case scenario is you walk from the job, which in the long run be more of a loss for the client. I have only run into a couple of these clients; they are unreasonable and not worth losing sleep over a few dollars. Its best to terminate the relationship as it would be my best guess that a referral from this customer would not be one you wanted anyway. If you feel it was just a miscommunication on your end, take reasonability and remedy the problem. Taking accountability for your mistake will go a far way in their eyes and on future issues that arise. Prepping the homeowner pre-construction Before starting the job, it very important to give the homeowners a warning of what will happen during the construction process.
  1. All furniture in the proposed working area must be moved- I would recommend having the clients take care of this to limit the risk of damage to their belongings.
  2. There will be dust that will be in the house up to 3 months after construction-I would recommend hiring a construction cleaning company at the end of the job even so after it is cleaned dust will be present months after words.
  3. There will be conflicts between you in the homeowner at some course of the job. - You will do your best to eliminate them as quickly as they arise-i.e. material damages, miscommunication, job delays
  4. All decisions on materials must be made before the start of the job- this will eliminate job stoppage due to materials not being on site.
  5. All materials will be on site before commencement of job-
  6. Payment structures must be made per contract otherwise job will stop until payment rendered
  7. Cars are to be moved out of the driveway- Ensures ease of loading and unloading of materials/tools
  8. Give the specific hours that workers will be present- i.e. 7-3:30
  9. Determine what areas are allowed to be used as staging for tools/materials
  10. If animals are present in the home that they put outside or in a room during the day
  11. All valuables in the house are locked in safe
  12. Ask if using client’s household bathroom is okay or to bring in Porter Potty
  13. Being transparent as possible is key to keeping a great relationship with your client!
During Construction During construction it is key to take detailed photos to eliminate any damages that were not caused by the construction process. I would also make a video to ensure all areas are included. All subcontractors should also take progress pictures to ensure if problems arise in the future, they will not be responsible for any work that they did not perform. Keep an on-going log of progress to the homeowners and share the pictures for there records. This will keep homeowners excited of the progress being made. When the house is gutted to the studs it is important to have construction photos showing where all utilities are run in the walls or sub floor. If there is a problem in the future there will photos showing all utility locations. Protect all flooring with plywood or floor protective. I also like to protect front door and tarp all areas where subcontractors are to be working. Make sure to cover any chandeliers/furniture/doorways with plastic to eliminate dust. Ask the homeowners if they have any concerns that they could think of. We’re all human and possibly a detail was missed! Post Construction Phase If the project went smoothly appreciation should be shown to the customer. Find out if the husband likes a particular type of liquor. Bring the wife a bouquet of flowers. Send a Christmas card to the family letting how much you appreciated the work. You know you have done a good job if they tell you they will refer you to their friends. The best compliment you could receive is a good referral. In Summary Try to find a knitch in the market, I found kitchens to be a great remodel projects. Bathrooms are tough as they are small, expensive with little profit margin with every trade involved. Windows/doors are also another great knitch as they can be installed quickly. There are so many different remodeling items that can be stream lined to make the selling installing process flawless. Once the core group subcontractors are in place the job almost runs itself. Every day is a learning experience with new materials or methods in construction. Keeping up with codes, materials, fluctuating labor and material cost is a job within itself. Anyone can be a contractor with the right mindset.

2023.06.03 00:05 Cycle_Agreeable “Your just not that profitable”

I work at a small company in a very high stress service industry ( won’t be more specific for anonymity). I often get stuck with tons of work while my boss shows up late every day and takes lots of time off. I regularly work 14+ hour days. (Salary btw so no financial gain at all)
When I mentioned my concerns of working well over my requirements for no extra money they told me that I was barely profitable for the company and they could not up my pay but made vague promises of a promotion in a couple of years.
Recently, my significant other had a baby and they gave me 2 days off, meaning that I had to be back to work the day after my wife and baby came home from the hospital. So much for the “unlimited PTO”
While on my brief “parental leave” if you can even call it that. My boss sent me a super rude and insulting email and demanded that I work through my time off. (The night before we went to the hospital to deliver). It appeared to me by his tone and language that he was setting me up to be fired with cause. This was pretty surprising as he often commented that I was one of the best at my job.
So I pulled the ripcord and scheduled a lunch with our biggest competitor. Turns out, they just happened to have an employee that is leaving to move closer to family in a few weeks.
During lunch, the other company straight up told me that their starting pay is 40% higher than I am currently making (for someone with ZERO experience) they require 10 less hours of work per month, have objective bonuses for work over the minimum hours and a massive benefits package (my current job has almost no benefits).
Here’s the biggest catch, they are somehow able to offer all that while still charging clients a third less per hour. 🤔
Something doesn’t seem to be adding up…
Needless to say, I just submitted my application to the other company, and have stopped working until 2 am.

2023.06.03 00:02 Realistic_Match2577 Looking for a nice bike shop - with employees that are actually interested in helping

Hey all. This is going to be half question and half rant.
Tldr: got a new fixie and I’m really unhappy because I couldn’t find a bike shop that’s willing to help a beginner. What should I do? (Beginner as in to use cycling regularly instead public transport. I know how to cycle)
*Novel starts here: * The reason why I’m asking because so far my experience with shops are a bit … annoying.
The big shops like Evans, Halfords, Balfe has the most uninterested and dead inside employees that cannot wait for 5clock to shut the gates. *(I’m not blaming them, probably the companies are paying them in beans so obviously, attitude) *
And the smaller shops I’ve experienced so far were either people sees customers are bother or a target with a fat wallet. Either they’re randomly picking and trying to push it (even though after a test ride I tell them it’s uncomfortable / large) they’re like don’t worry you’ll get used to it. Maybe I’m in Hackney but every single shop constantly tells me that I should get a fixie/single speed for commute.
Last week I got a ss from one of those small shop. Even though I tell him that I was mainly use it for commute the guy pushed this specific bike a lot and I just felt like okay and got it.
Now I hate the bike. It’s like going to a gym and I’m trying to use it for commute. Because I end up in sweat I don’t use it to go to work. I found out I can’t attach mud guards, I cannot attach racks so means backpack with a sweaty back. On top of that I’ve noticed there’s rust all over that “new” bike. I took it back and the guy just told me those are just cosmetic rust and brushed me off saying “didn’t you had a bike before?” It’s overwhelmingly stressful for me to confront people with aggressive attitude so I just left.
Now I’m with a bike that I don’t like to ride and don’t know what to do. Where is the cycle paradise with people actually likes to do their job?

2023.06.02 23:56 JStevinik Am I Crazy for Thinking That a Film Based on Fed Ex Flight 705 Would Not Be a Good Idea?

I like to watch TV documentaries and YouTube channels about aviation accidents/disasters.
I came across an episode about Mayday/Air Crash Investigation/Air Disasters about Federal Express Flight 705 available on YouTube (hopefully the verification check mark on the channel renders this upload as legal). The people in the comment sections suggest that there ought to be a movie about it. I replied to them by stating that I am an aspiring screenwriter but I was (still am) skeptical that it could work.
In this, a flight engineer for FedEx and former Navy Pilot was about to have a hearing about inaccurately documenting the amount of hours in the air (from his Navy career) in a manner that could be perceived by the company as intentionally lying. He lost a marriage and struggling to pay for his kids' Stanford undergraduate education. He remembers that the amount of life insurance his ex-wife and kids could receive from a workplace accident can be up to $2.5 million (in 1994 USD). He planned to hijack (FedEx until after this incident, allowed employees for free ride-along) a plane in the airline and commit suicide. He hid a spear gun and craft hammers in a guitar case (he rightfully assumed he would not be searched, as an employee with an innocent guitar case). The weapons would not appear suspicious in a crash (could be merch). The crew on the plane dealt with being hit with the hammers, but they survived enough to physically confront him once the captain rose the plane upward to pin the hijacker to the back to allow his co-workers to restrain the hijacker (and toss away the hijacker's methods). Then, the captain, being a former fighter pilot, would fly the plane upside down. Then, the plane got to their original airport, but it was coming in too fast. Therefore, the captain took a sharp turn to barely reduce speed to get on a secondary, perpendicular runway, which causes the automatic warnings to blare. The plane structurally survived despite being almost over-loaded. The hijacker was arrested and served life imprisonment (despite pleasing insanity). The crew sustained brain injuries severe enough to make them retire from aviation. Further details are in the documentary episode.
The main issue is that most of the first act could be spent on the hijacker, who would not even make it as anti-hero. Assailing and killing a crew for life insurance would not be a likable protagonist (to root for) AT ALL. However, the people worth rooting for are motivated by basic survival, so they would not be interesting from the start nor develop significantly after the incident.
I hope you would agree with me that a tasteful/accurate adaptation would not work for a story. Yes, you could make numerous artistic licenses but even a loose adaptation would still be tasteless. Not to mention, 30 minutes worth of film dramatization/recreation has been made in the episode, so a feature film would be pointless.

2023.06.02 23:52 Yaaeee Repair shop won’t release vehicle

I was in 2 hit and run accidents within a few weeks, (thank you Dallas) and had them repaired at the same time, at the brand certified collision repair shop. After 4 weeks, I called and my car was ready for pick up. Before pick-up, the collision center employee that has been handling my case (we’ll call him Mike), called to tell me that car couldn’t be released to me because the insurance company still owed them money. He reassured me he’d call them daily, until he figured it out. I was satisfied with that answer, but at the end of the week there was no resolution.
I called and he reassured me that he had been trying but they weren’t getting back to him. Halfway through the sixth week, I decided to check in again. Nothing. I call my insurance company, and they let me know everything on there end is solved. The insurance company never sent over a supplemental, from the original estimate. The repair shop is saying, they never received the original estimate. I can’t get anyone to send copies of their communications, despite asking in person, via phone, and now via email. They still won’t release my car and we’re at 8 weeks, dozens of calls, emails, and in person visits. Not to mention I’ve spent over 1/2 my rent on rental car fees because I have to work.
What can I do to, 1.) Get my car back and 2.) Find out who’s actually responsible for this unreasonable delay of 4 additional weeks.
TLDR: Repair shop drug feet on submitting supplemental forms for 3 weeks, costing me 3 weeks of rental car expenses including holiday & insurance fees OOP ~$900.

2023.06.02 23:48 urmumsarah_89 Fired from an internship after 2 weeks

Hi guys,
So I was hired as an intern for the duration of summer. It's been two weeks, and my boss just called me and told me I was being let go. The reasons were that I was slow and they did not have enough capacity to train me. From what I've read online, I thought internships were an opportunity too learn. to give context, I am a sophmore in college (reflected on my resume), and I told the recruiter during my interview that I was unfamiliar with the coding language they used. I geniunly don't know where to go from now, and what to do with my summer. Please give advice.
edit: i feel like a failure...what do I do to avoid this in the future?
edit: they called me 5 min later and offered me another chance but docked my pay 33%
edit: people are saying there is something missing from the story. I am telling this verbatim. I asked for feedback during my termination call, and they told me they expected me to implement this feature within a day like one of their other employees would have done. They said I left too many white spaces in my code and not enough debug logs, and basically, my pull requests were too messy and I am wasting their time. I asked for more specifics, they said I can review my pull requests myself, and they are expecting someone who can work more independently. I don't know what say at this point. It is not a simple "if statement" feature. Without giving away too much, they wanted me to modify a niche syntax tree they developed for their product.

edit: I undertsand why people are saying this is a shit post but this is my real life. I was depending on the pay from this internship for tuiton money. the contract they gave me was as a "contractor", and when I accepeted it I had a bad feeling because it says on their they can terminate our relationship at any point. I put trust, and I didn't realize that meant they could fire me at any will.

2023.06.02 23:38 ottqt So is Playstation Plus subscription required or not?

Has anyone been able to play without the subscription? I don't care about multiplayer and would even prefer none of that forced decision, but I can live with it. What I refuse to do is pay $10/month for something I don't care about.
I've seen different responses, initially saying it was needed, then a Blizzard employee mentioning you don't need but you will lose functionalities. Really just need to get feedback from someone that tried already.

2023.06.02 23:35 RhasaTheSunderer Anyone else hate seeing these human signposts around the city?

Not sure why employers love to send out their employees outside to hold a sign during some of the hottest days of the year. I refuse to give business to any of them that choose this practice.
You want a sign? Pay for a permit, don't make minimum wage employees stand outside risking heat stroke just for a few extra customers

2023.06.02 23:32 Hitwelve Laid off. Please give advice.

Hi all,
I was laid off on Wednesday. I worked as a software engineer, but in a very low-paying company and stuck around solely because of the job security. So much for that. Anyway...
At the time of my layoff, I had about $600 in my savings account. Here's a big picture of my finances:
It seems like unemployment insurance will net me about $600/week, and I've been DoorDashing since Wednesday to try and supplement that but it doesn't seem to help much (it's like $12 an hour). From what I understand, as soon as I reach half of my unemployment check in income from DoorDash, my unemployment check will start to decrease for every dollar I make outside of UI, so my cap on DoorDash is $300 a week.
The employer is offering 2 weeks pay as severance; this is about $1850-$1900 after taxes. I'm considering trying to negotiate for more, as they want me to sign away my right to take legal action against them in exchange for the severance and in my opinion 2 weeks is laughably low for that. I emailed HR about it on Thursday, but haven't heard back. I have a history with HR at this company in which I email them, they don't respond to me, then they come back 6 months later complaining about the same thing I emailed them about; so I'm not sure if they'll even respond to my questions about the severance.
My fiancee makes $35k a year, about $2k per month net. She is a teacher and has two master's degrees, both in Education. School is out, but her mom is sick and I don't want to ask her to pick up a summer job if we can help it as she's spending a lot of time with her mom right now.
Our wedding is in about 12 months. We've already paid half of the venue cost (about $3500, includes food, drink and music) and half of our photographer's fee (about $2000). She also already bought her dress, so we're pretty set on wedding expenses for now.
A couple of questions for the group:
Thank you!!
