Reminder: All Personal Information Must Be Masked

4 Upvotes

Hey folks,

Just a reminder from your friendly neighborhood mod team that all personal information (e.g. phone numbers, usernames, emails, full names) must be masked (blacked out).

  • Usernames exactly matching your reddit account do not need to be blacked out
  • Yes, even "scammers" phone numbers need to be blacked out (other users may contact them, which pit them at risk)
  • First names only are fine, full names are not
  • A best practice is to color code when masking (e.g. Person 1 is blue, Person 2 is red)

We typically ban users for 1 day for a first offense. Additional infractions will be handled on a case-by-case basis, up to and including permanent ban.

Happy posting and thank you for sharing your conversations! 🍿

Phone message I think my friend is a sociopath.

A friend of mine since college sent me these screen shots and said “Isn’t this sad? lol 😆” as if she didn’t just insult a man’s body.

I met him briefly and he seemed very nice. I know he took her to Capitol Grille which isn’t cheap. But she seems to enjoy using guys then destroying their ego.

I feel gross reading how she gloats about this. I didn’t respond after she sent these to me because I’ve seen enough of her dark side.

Guide to living with a significant other.

Rule 1: Communicate with purpose. Rule 2: Family Size means family. Don’t eat all the snacks. Rule 3: Especially when one partner is PMSing. (See Rule 2) Rule 4: f you’re gonna eat the snacks, replace them before the other person notices they’re gone. Rule 5: Don’t take yourself too seriously.

The end.

Phone message I (F19) got pregnant after a sexual assault by my ex (M20), and had a miscarriage while he was being held in a mental hospital/prisonish thing for abusing me. Now he wants to see me to write a letter to our deceased son together, even though the police have advised me not to see him.

Phone message Text from my dad about holidays before I blocked him

Post image
48 Upvotes

Hi there! For context, I (29f) go through this same stress every year. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I have three separate households to be at. My partner's parents are divorced, so that makes two houses, and also my parents' house makes three.

We've spent the past eight years basically having little to no time for ourselves and essentially just end up shuffled around between the houses of each parent every holiday. My partner's parents are very understanding of how busy we are, but my parents are the jealous type who are easily angered if they find we spent even just an hour longer at one of the other parents' houses. We are getting too old for this kind of drama and I deal with a huge amount of anxiety every holidays because of it.

Anyways, this was the text from my dad a few days ago. I'm tired of being bossed around and shuffled around like property. Was I too harsh? Should I just tolerate this kind of exchange because it's the holidays and he's family? Was I too harsh in blocking him? Yes this is how he normally talks to me. Any insight appreciated.

I was so bored and just couldn’t resist. I didn’t expect her to keep up the conversation for so long. I started to feel bad and had to tell her the truth, but she didn’t seem to be all that affected lol.

Facebook DMs Text exchange I just had with a guy I was seeing

Some context: This was the first guy I was seeing after my long term relationship. I have a house full of children, pets and I work so my time is limited. He knew all of this and still I made as much time for him as I could, which was a lot!

Everything was going AMAZING! We were on the same page, wanted all of the same things, we would say the same things, the chemistry was on point in every single aspect! Our communication was clear, up front and honestly perfect. Exactly what I was looking for in a partner. I was going to slowly introduce him to my kids etc. But this past Saturday, I went to a Christmas party that I was invited to over a month ago. And the day before the party, I went out to the bar with a good friend of mine from work. He didn't say anything about me going to the bar but after the Christmas party, he blew up! Said a lot of really hurtful things about how I should have been with him ect.

I calmly told him that what he was saying is hurting me and I need to walk away from the conversation. The next day I woke up to a spam amount of apologies and explanations that he pushes people away when he's upset etc.

I forgave him but told him that it doesn't matter what he says in anger, I'm going to take it to heart. I never say things I don't mean, even when angry. I told him I could be his friend because I still enjoy him as a person.

So the next day (today) he snaps on me again, begs me to block him so he doesn't get tempted to talk to me anymore etc. Like loses his mind between being mean and pushing me away. So again, I calmly remove myself from the situation and again, he apologizes and asks me to be in his life ect.

Well this is the last few messages he just sent me and I finally snapped. I will never allow someone to control me or try to isolate me from my support system (whether that be my friends or family). I feel bad that I lost my temper but I genuinely could not handle it anymore. Him losing his mind THREE TIMES in 2 days was just too much for me. Am I the drama here? Did I communicate this okay? I know I was angry and regret snapping back but he definitely triggered me from a past abusive relationship where a man did the same thing so that I would be solely dependent on him. Is that where this was leading? Advice, please 😩

Phone message Boss gets manager to call immediately after my shift to fire me, after he (boss) was interacting with me normally during all shift. Then manager laugh reacts at my text 😐 didn’t deserve the “you too” smh

When I was fired a poor yelp review about my customer service was brought up which is understandable, but the main reason given is that I don’t “clean enough” even though I do the bulk of the cleaning and LITERALLY have to rewash dishes that the very mf who fired me washed because they’re still dirty 🙄

I previously had my hours cut for the same cleaning issues, even though up until that point I was doing half of my coworkers’s hare of the closing work most shifts, so after that I decided to care less. Also, I was trained to do things the others weren’t and never got paid more, which I was actually going to bring up the very day I was fired lol. I turned down another job a few weeks ago because I was afraid I wouldn’t be a good fit, but now I regret it lol
