2023.06.02 01:06 cocoarican What can I do if a house I am newly renting isn’t ready by the set move in date? (North Carolina)

As the title states above, I recently started a lease with a company who said the house would be ready by today 06/01.
Now when we first viewed the home there was a broken door, the house was a mess, and few other things and we were told this would all be fixed/cleaned prior to or by our move in date. The day has come and none of the issues have been fixed and after exploring the house some more we’ve come to realize there is also no water heatehot water AND the a/c is broken/disconnected.
My lease for my original place is already ending tomorrow. What can I do? Are they legally responsible to put me at another property until the work is done? Can I break the lease and get my money back so I can move in somewhere else? I’d appreciate any advice. This is my first time renting a home and so far it’s been miserable..
I’m living in North Carolina if that helps as well. Thanks!

2023.06.02 01:05 tombah99 It would have been 8 years in October

Over Memorial Day weekend, I caught my (27M) girlfriend (28F) cheating on me. I have a lot on my mind so this is going to be a long one... apologies in advance. I want to talk about the night it all went down, the days since, and life going forward.
I have been with my (likely soon to be ex) girlfriend for nearly 8 years. We met in college at a party and never looked back. Our relationship was never the most exciting or passionate, but we loved each other.
I will be the first to admit I was not a perfect partner. I struggled with alcohol and we both smoked a fair bit of marijuana through college and our early 20s. I also struggled greatly with depression and anxiety. Despite these issues, I always held down a job and paid the bills. We also rarely fought.
I have made great strides in my life to put these issues behind me. I am completely sober and have worked very hard to become the best future husband and father I can be for our family.
Over the years we built a life together. We both graduated college, moved to the big city, and began our careers. We have 2 dogs (luckily no kids) and live in a nice house in a nice suburb that we split rent on. Our lives are integrated. She is a part of my family and I am a part of hers. We have lived together for years and have shared expenses.
We are not engaged yet but I have had a ring for several months now. I had not proposed because I felt there were cracks in our relationship that I wanted to work on before taking that next step. I had tried to have conversations about these issues but was never met with any meaningful dialogue or action.
I think the story of my D-day actually start a couple weeks before it actually happened. One day before work, I had asked my GF (I'll call her J) if she could please clean her dishes in the sink and clean up her pile of laundry in the bathroom. No demands or anything, just "please, I'd appreciate it". J blew up at me. "Do you know how long you were a mess and I put up with it??". I was hurt but at this point I needed to leave for work so I said we need to talk later and headed out the door. I gathered my thoughts during the day and came home a little early from work. We sat down and I laid out the following points:
1. Please stop using the past against me. I know I wasn't perfect but I've worked very hard to become a better person. I cannot be in a relationship where my partner will hold my darkest days over my head to win an argument.
2. J works the nightshift and I have struggled with this in the past. We don't see each other very often as our schedules are completely opposite. She was open to changing to the day shift in the past but recently has hardened her stance. Recently, she has been sleeping a LOT on her days off. I understand nightshift is brutal on one's sleep schedule but it was getting to the point where she would only be awake 4-6 hours on her days off. These few hours she was awake she would lay on the couch and watch TV. It made having a relationship difficult, and it also meant her share of house duties was falling behind (leaving her dishes in the sink, her clothes all over the place, etc).
3. Sex. Our sex life has never been great. I have been open about my desire to improve things, have worked on myself to be an attractive partner, and have tried to discuss her wants and needs as well. There was never any progress.
During this conversation, I asked for her thoughts and feelings on each topic. I desperately wanted an actual dialogue but she was giving me nothing. Ultimately, she said she needed time to think about what I said. Since the conversation, I had not seen her hardly seen her at all. She had been gone almost a week on a hiking trip with some co-workers that had been planned for a while. Then because of work there was another week of not really seeing each other.
Friday night, J asks if I want to go to a birthday dinner for a family friend on Saturday. I had plans that required me to be up early on Sunday, so I said probably not as I knew she would want to stay and hang out late with them. She swore she would not as she had work on Sunday. I only half believed her, but agreed to go because I knew it'd make her happy.
Towards the end of dinner I go to the restroom and when I come back, what always happens happened. "Would you be ok if I actually went out? I won't be out much later" She asked in front of the entire group so I said "sure, you can do what you want" A few minutes later off to the side, I let her know I was upset that she went back on her word but she was un-phased. She promised she wouldn't be out very late and I believed her as the group was primarily mid-30s people with young kids. One of the other people at the birthday dinner assured me they would give her a ride home.
I drove home alone and the anger built. I typed out a long text about how I was hurt that she didn't come home with me like she said she would, but ultimately deleted it before sending. I didn't want to needlessly make her night worse and told myself we would talk in the morning. I go to bed.
2AM I wake up to go pee. She isn't there. I check my phone and she hasn't texted me at all either. We share locations with each other so I check and it's not loading so I am getting a bit worried for her safety at this point.
I call her and she picks up "Hello?" "Hey J where are you??" "Oh I decided to sleep over at family friend's house" This alone wasn't concerning as the family friends were a married couple with young children. We have known them for years and it was not unusual for her to spend the night there after going out with them.
At this point my concern quickly turns back to anger because not only did she lie to me again about coming home early, she didn't even text me to let me know her plans changed. I told J to get an Uber and come home, we need to talk. She was annoyed and let me know it but I didn't care. She told me she would order an Uber.
Nearly 30 minutes had passed and I had not heard from her. I check her location again to see if she's on her way. Unlike before, it does load this time. Not only was she not on the way back, she was at a house I didn't recognize. I call her back "Hey I thought you said you were ordering an Uber and coming home? Also where are you? Your location is showing you at some house I've never seen".
She sticks to her story. She is at family friend's. She has no idea why her location is showing the other house, because she is definitely at family friend's. I'm uneasy at this point but still haven't jumped to any conclusions. Maybe it was a glitch. Seemed to be pretty far away from where she was claiming to be for a glitch and it also hadn't moved at all in a while... but whatever, anything is possible I suppose.
I am asking her why she keeps lying to me. Lied about not going out in the first place, lied about how long she'd be gone, and lied about calling an Uber 30 minutes ago. She says the Uber is coming in 4 minutes and that she will call me when it picks her up because she doesn't want to argue with me in front of family friends.
I watch her location, expecting it to jump and correct itself once she starts moving. Instead, it moves exactly as if she was picked up in an Uber from that house. Whatever, she is on her way.
I go downstairs and wait for her to arrive. Once she does I ask what she did tonight. "I went to the bar and then to family friends". I ask her what she was doing at family friends. "Just talking. You know I stay there sometimes what's the big deal?". I ask what on earth they were talking until 2:30 in the morning. It just didn't make sense, they're a mid-30s married couple with young kids and full time jobs. Staying awake this late just to talk?
"Well we were talking about you for one" "Me? What about me" "For starters your psychotic behavior tonight."
I was mad sure but my behavior had been far from "psychotic". I never raised my voice and never accused her of anything. I demanded she come home sure but I felt I was justified in that.
From here she continues to say they talked about the discussion from 2 weeks ago. How I "attacked her" and "piled on her for no reason". I was shocked. I thought I had handled that conversation a couple weeks ago very maturely. I was actually proud of myself for taking time to gather my thoughts so that I could calmly lay them out when I got home. At this point however, I was questioning myself.
Did I dog pile her for no reason? Was the way I approached it an "attack"? My only thought was maybe it felt one sided because she refused to engage in any discussion. I asked why she could talk to other people about our relationship but not me.
It would never become clear however as she said she was done talking and was going to bed. I begged her to give me something, anything. I didn't care if her response was in the form of yelling at me. I just needed SOMETHING.
As she's walking up the stairs I ask her to explain why her location was at that house. The story was the same. She didn't know, she was at family friends house. I told her I want to believe her but I know what I saw with my own eyes. It just didn't make sense. I would have believed anything that plausibly put her at that house. "I was at family friends and that's that. If you don't believe me, the we have MUCH bigger problems"
That was that. I did trust her and so I accepted it and went up to join her in bed. There was a little voice in the back of my mind that knew what I saw but she wouldn't lie, she definitely wouldn't cheat.
As I am about to fall asleep, I sit up suddenly and say "J I have an idea" *half asleep* "what?" "Show me your Uber receipts. That will prove you're telling the truth, any small doubts I have will be gone and we can just move on from this. Now she seems to be completely asleep (almost certainly faking it looking back). I grab her phone from under her pillow and unlock it.
On the screen is a text thread to a guy I'll call Jake. There were only 2 messages. First from earlier in the evening "It's J". The kind of message you send when someone puts their number in your phone and you text them so they have your number now. Then one she forgot to send "Hey sorry about that... I made it home ok".
Even at this point, my naïve ass did not jump to cheating. I truly assumed it was probably someone who was also at the dinner and stayed the night at family friends. But then I saw the Uber receipt. It had picked her up from the house her location showed her at.
"It's what it looks like"
I asked how could she do this to me? Why would she do this to me? Nothing. Not a single sentence that could be considered a thoughtful response. Despite my demands to know what happened that night, she, as usual, gave me nothing. "It's over. You threw away an 8 year relationship. We were supposed to be together forever. You were supposed to be the mother of my children." Only after those words "It's over" did she show any remorse.
The very little information I did get out of her was:
-This was the first time
-I caught her before anything actually happened
I'm not sure I believe either. It also doesn't really matter to me. Interestingly, about a month prior she told me she had HPV. She assured me that monogamous people can get it. Based on the research I did, it seemed possible, so I didn't think much of it. Now I wonder...
The next few hours were an unproductive loop of various iterations of "How could you" and "I'm sorry I'll do anything to make it up".
Eventually it was 6am and I still had those plans that brought me home early the night before. A 7am tee time. So I left.
It was actually a blessing but I had already had pretty much a full day of plans with some friends. First was golf, then some time at the shooting range with another friend who was going to show me the ropes. These are close friends and I told them everything. They listened to me ramble all day and spent as much time as I needed.
Once I knew J had left for work, I decided it was time to go back home. I had been up since 2am and I was exhausted. I don't fall asleep until midnight. Awake for about 22 hours on the worst day of my life.
The Aftermath:
Honestly... not much happened after. I hurt. It is a deep, constant ache. It was not overwhelming pain like hearing a family member had died. No... just a constant, deep, ache.
I reached out to some more friends who have all been incredibly supportive. I am truly blessed to have the support system I do.
The people I really want to talk to, but haven't had the courage to call yet are my parents. I can't explain why, but I feel almost embarrassed. I also know that once I tell them, the relationship is 100% over with J. They will never see her the same, and she'll know it. I can't live with that tension my whole life.
While I am 99.9% sure this relationship is over, it's hard to say 100%. She was in my life for 8 years. It means a fundamental change to my life presently, and the entire future I had planned.
Work has been hard. I haven't gotten a lot done this week. I've been distracting myself by talking to my co-workers. Today though... I was the only one in the office. Seems everyone else happened to be working from home.
It was not a good day. I have been in my head replaying the events of the weekend and spiraling. Until this point I was weirdly ok. I think it's the first time I've been alone since it happened so all the feelings are coming out.
Going Forward:
I'm not sure what the future holds. I have a few short term plans:
1. STD test
2. Therapy
3. Talk to my parents and likely make a trip home
I also need to talk to J. While I repeatedly said it was over the night it all went down, I think it still needs to be made official. I have not seen J since that night. After work Sunday and Monday night, she has been home. I don't think she's left the house. However, I've been spending as much time away as possible and the little bit I am home, she is in the guest bedroom. I have not had the strength or desire to talk to her.
What I'm most scared of it my living situation and the dogs. While one dog is clearly mine and one is clearly hers, there's a part of me that worries she may do something crazy. I don't know what she's capable of anymore.
We are locked into this lease until February. I have re-read the lease and it seems were pretty much stuck. She has family in town she could stay with but I've got nowhere to go. While it wouldn't ruin me, it would certainly be financially painful if she stopped paying her half of the rent. Best case scenario seems to be we live as roommates and stay out of each other's way for 8 months... A pretty bleak best case scenario.
Once we do separate, there's going to be the challenge of divvying up the stuff. We own a lot of nice furniture together. That furniture probably wouldn't fit well into the apartments we'll likely have to move back into after this. It's all just so unclear at this point.
If you've made it this far, thank you for listening. Just writing this was very cathartic. I am open to hearing advice on how I should proceed. Nothing in my life has prepared me for something like this.

2023.06.02 01:04 Lilahjane66 Eviction process NY state

I have a friend that is facing a potential eviction. She has lived in a house paying a monthly rental fee of $200 and maintained the property for a friend. Approximately 30 days ago her friend/landlord served her an eviction notice via in person legal delivery. The rent was to go up to $900 or she was to leave in 30 days. My friend has health issues and having gainful employment is difficult for her to obtain.
My questions are, on the letter it stated she has until June 3 2023 to pay or get out. This has not gone through the judicial process yet. Can sheriffs show up on that date and demand she leave? Or can she claim squatters/tenants rights and delay the eviction? Also does the landlord need a court order to get her to leave?

2023.06.02 01:01 Acceptable-You9068 How My Ex (20F) Helped Me (21M) Develop Schizophrenia

My close friends tell me I should write a book. There’s no way to include all of the side stories and intricacies of the situation in a single post, like my surgeries or the heinous amounts of food I was doordashed. I just want to get this off my chest and have the reality of what happened written somewhere as I feel I’m fading into insanity.
I’m certainly not innocent here and I don’t feel like a victim. One of the hardest things about being cheated on is the feeling of not being enough and not being desirable. I definitely instigated this girl to chase me a little in order to feel better about myself, but I never could’ve imagined how far she would go.
I (21M) dated my ex (20F) for three years- let’s call her Katie. I go to school in the Midwest and shes in school back home on the east coast (we were both college athletes- she has since quit). We started dating in high school and spent every second of every day together when I was home. Katie was loved dearly by my family, which consisted of nearly a dozen younger siblings that all became very attached. Our parents had no doubt that we would get married. I had experienced a traumatic breakup a few years prior and she made me forget about it completely.
About a month into the school year, I was on a long bus ride home from an away game and got a text from a mutual friend that Katie had cheated. I went through the stages of grief over the next 13 hours, stuck on this bus. I confronted her about it and after denying it over and over, she finally confessed.
We had spent the previous summer traveling the country together, both with her parents and alone. It turns out that she had cheated twice in April with a guy in her friend group right before we had left for our travels. She was horrified by what she did and planned on taking it to the grave. She claimed they were short, drunk mistakes. None of the rest of the friend group knew it happened, except for the one guy that ended up telling me, and obviously the guy she cheated with. Katie cut him off but apparently began entertaining him again once she got back to school, which prompted the mutual friend to tell me after seeing them flirting at the bar, but still not enough for any of her other friends to notice.
Katie along with me, my friends, and my family were devastated. It was months of misery, and still is. I was very dependent on her and had a hard time letting go. She was insistent on making it up to me and proving herself. She would constantly tell me that God told her that I’m her husband. She wouldn’t leave me alone. My parents believed her and advised me to forgive her.
I cut her off several times and each time she found a way around it. She showed up to my house unannounced (10+ hr drive) several times and wrote me, no exaggeration, over 120 letters. One time I was on a road trip and got a call from an unknown number around midnight. She was calling from some restaurant at the halfway point between our schools letting me know she was on her way because I had her number blocked.
It didn’t go well any time she was at my place. I regret to say she would convince me to let her sleep in my bed and things would go from there. I told myself that I was doing the right thing by not turning her away after that long of a drive. I’d promised her father that she would always be safe with me and turning her away in a dangerous Midwest city didn’t feel right. Regardless, I don’t have a good reason for sleeping with her.
I was desperate and had even tried taking another girl out on a date, but cut it off because I just wasn’t over Katie. I didn’t want to hurt someone else in this mess.
Eventually Thanksgiving break came around, and I was concerned about what would happen when Katie was down the street and not across the country.
I was flying home and I’m very cheap, so I always take any layover that will lower the price of my ticket.
This particular layover was totally out of the way in the deep south. My flight from this southern airport to the east coast was delayed. I looked around for a place to chill in the airport when I saw a familiar face from high school. I’ll call her Riley (20F). We had never really crossed paths in high school, but we both knew of each other.
I walked over and sat next to her and we hit it off. It was something out of a movie. It was the first time in months that I felt any kind of relief from Katie. We were on the same flight and just happened to be sitting next to each other on the plane.
The wounds from Katie were still fresh, but how could I not follow up on that? I ended up taking her out on a date a few days later and hung out a few times after. We were both really into each other and I was enjoying the mental peace. She was gorgeous and incredibly entertaining just to talk to.
Unknown to me, (I probably could’ve guessed this) Katie and Riley were friends at one point in high school and word quickly got around to Katie that Riley and I were talking. Part of that made it even sweeter.
Katie wasn’t exactly happy about this and still wouldn’t leave me alone. She would guilt trip me into doing Bible studies with her and would hang out with my sister (19F) when I ignored her.
This was all unknown to Riley. I felt guilty about it and didn’t want to hurt her. But Riley made it clear that she wasn’t looking for anything serious, so I opted not to mention it to her. I felt like it was alright because when I would see Katie it’d be at like a Dennys or something and we would just read the Bible and leave separately.
I didn’t have a car on the east coast, so Riley would have to pick me up when we hung out. One time, she stopped to get coffee right before picking me up and ran into my sister and Katie. Katie ran out of the shop crying and Riley and my sister had a brief interaction (Riley had never officially met my sister). Riley was very aware that me and Katie dated for a long time, but didn’t know why we broke up.
Anyway, she picked me up right after and did an incredible job acting like nothing happened. I heard the story a few days later from Katie and my sister, but never from Riley.
I kept in touch with Riley and we agreed that we would catch up over Christmas break.
My house on the east coast is about an hour and a half from the airport. I have to take a train into the city, and then get a ride from one of my friends in the city to the airport. On the way to the airport, while I was on the train, my ride bailed on me. I was going to miss my flight.
I knew that Katie was at school in the city. I totally see how this is wrong, I could’ve paid for an Uber. I think part of me wanted to see her in some pain, knowing I was with Riley.

2023.06.02 00:59 JoshAsdvgi THE FOUR BROTHERS


Alone and apart from their tribe dwelt four orphan brothers.
They had erected a very comfortable hut, although the materials used were only willows, hay, birch bark, and adobe mud.
After the completion of their hut, the oldest brother laid out the different kinds of work to be done by the four of them.
He and the second and third brothers were to do all the hunting, and the youngest brother was to do the house work, cook the meals, and keep plenty of wood on hand at all times.
As his older brothers would leave for their hunting very early every morning, and would not return till late at night, the little fellow always found plenty of spare time to gather into little piles fine dry wood for their winter use.
Thus the four brothers lived happily for a long time.
One day while out gathering and piling up wood, the boy heard a rustling in the leaves and looking around he saw a young woman standing in the cherry bushes, smiling at him.
"Who are you, and where did you come from?" asked the boy, in surprise.
"I am an orphan girl and have no relatives living.
I came from the village west of here.
I learned from rabbit that there were four orphan brothers living here all alone, and that the youngest was keeping house for his older brothers, so I thought I would come over and see if I couldn't have them adopt me as their sister, so that I might keep house for them, as I am very poor and have no relations, neither have I a home."
She looked so pitiful and sad that the boy thought to himself, "I will take her home with me, poor girl, no matter what my brothers think or say."
Then he said to her: "Come on, tanke (sister).
You may go home with me; I am sure my older brothers will be glad to have you for our sister."
When they arrived at the hut, the girl hustled about and cooked up a fine hot supper, and when the brothers returned they were surprised to see a girl sitting by the fire in their hut. After they had entered the youngest brother got up and walked outside, and a short time after the oldest brother followed him out.
"Who is that girl, and where did she come from?" he asked his brother.
Whereupon the brother told him the whole story.
Upon hearing this the oldest brother felt very sorry for the poor orphan girl and going back into the hut he spoke to the girl, saying: "Sister, you are an orphan, the same as we; you have no relatives, no home.
We will be your brothers, and our poor hut shall be your home.
Henceforth call us brothers, and you will be our sister."
"Oh, how happy I am now that you take me as your sister.
I will be to you all as though we were of the same father and mother," said the girl.
And true to her word, she looked after everything of her brothers and kept the house in such fine shape that the brothers blessed the day that she came to their poor little hut.
She always had an extra buckskin suit and two pairs of moccasins hanging at the head of each one's bed.
Buffalo, deer, antelope, bear, wolf, wildcat, mountain lion and beaver skins she tanned by the dozen, and piled nicely in one corner of the hut.
When the Indians have walked a great distance and are very tired, they have great faith in painting their feet, claiming that paint eases the pain and rests their feet.
After their return from a long day's journey, when they would be lying down resting, the sister would get her paint and mix it with the deer tallow and rub the paint on her brother's feet, painting them up to their ankles.
The gentle touch of her hands, and the soothing qualities of the tallow and paint soon put them into a deep, dreamless steep.
Many such kind actions on her part won the hearts of the brothers, and never was a full blood sister loved more than was this poor orphan girl, who had been taken as their adopted sister.
In the morning when they arose, the sister always combed their long black silken scalp locks and painted the circle around the scalp lock a bright vermillion.
When the hunters would return with a goodly supply of beef, the sister would hurry and relieve them of their packs, hanging each one high enough from the ground so the prowling dogs and coyotes could not reach them.
The hunters each had a post on which to hang his bow and flint head arrows.
(Good hunters never laid their arrows on the ground, as it was considered unlucky to the hunter who let his arrows touch the earth after they had been out of the quiver).
They were all perfectly happy, until one day the older brother surprised them all by saying: "We have a plentiful supply of meat on hand at present to last us for a week or so.
I am going for a visit to the village west of us, so you boys all stay at home and help sister. Also gather as much wood as you can and I will be back again in four days.
On my return we will resume our hunting and commence getting our year's supply of meat."
He left the next morning, and the last they saw of him was while he stood at the top of the long range of hills west of their home.
Four days had come and gone and no sign of the oldest brother.
"I am afraid that our brother has met with some accident," said the sister.
"I am afraid so, too," said the next oldest. "
I must go and search for him; he may be in some trouble where a little help would get him out."
The second brother followed the direction his brother had taken, and when he came to the top of the long range of hills he sat down and gazed long and steadily down into the long valley with a beautiful creek winding through it.
Across the valley was a long plain stretching for miles beyond and finally ending at the foot of another range of hills, the counterpart of the one upon which he sat.
After noting the different landmarks carefully, he arose and slowly started down the slope and soon came to the creek he had seen from the top of the range.
Great was his surprise on arriving at the creek to find what a difference there was in the appearance of it from the range and where he stood.
From the range it appeared to be a quiet, harmless, laughing stream.
Now he saw it to be a muddy, boiling, bubbling torrent, with high perpendicular banks.
For a long time he stood, thinking which way to go, up or down stream.
He had just decided to go down stream, when, on chancing to look up, he noticed a thin column of smoke slowly ascending from a little knoll.
He approached the place cautiously and noticed a door placed into the creek bank on the opposite side of the stream.
As he stood looking at the door, wondering who could be living in a place like that, it suddenly opened and a very old appearing woman came out and stood looking around her. Soon she spied the young man, and said to him: "My grandchild, where did you come from and whither are you bound?"
The young man answered: "I came from east of this ridge and am in search of my oldest brother, who came over in this direction five days ago and who has not yet returned."
"Your brother stopped here and ate his dinner with me, and then left, traveling towards the west," said the old witch, for such she was. "
Now, grandson, come across on that little log bridge up the stream there and have your dinner with me.
I have it all cooked now and just stepped outside to see if there might not be some hungry traveler about, whom I could invite in to eat dinner with me."
The young man went up the stream a little distance and found a couple of small logs which had been placed across the stream to serve as a bridge.
He crossed over and went down to the old woman's dugout hut.
"Come in grandson, and eat. I know you must be hungry."
The young man sat down and ate a real hearty meal.
On finishing he arose and said: "Grandmother, I thank you for your meal and kindness to me.
I would stay and visit with you awhile, as I know it must be very lonely here for you, but I am very anxious to find my brother, so I must be going.
On my return I will stop with my brother and we will pay you a little visit."
"Very well, grandson, but before you go, I wish you would do me a little favor.
Your brother did it for me before he left, and cured me, but it has come back on me again.
I am subject to very severe pains along the left side of my backbone, all the way from my shoulder blade down to where my ribs attach to my backbone, and the only way I get any relief from the pain is to have some one kick me along the side."
(She was a witch, and concealed in her robe a long sharp steel spike. It was placed so that the last kick they would give her, their foot would hit the spike and they would instantly drop off into a swoon, as if dead.)
"If I won't hurt you too much, grandmother, I certainly will be glad to do it for you," said the young man, little thinking he would be the one to get hurt.
"No, grandson, don't be afraid of hurting me; the harder you kick the longer the pain stays away."
She laid down on the floor and rolled over on to her right side, so he could get a good chance to kick the left side where she said the pain was located.
As he moved back to give the first kick, he glanced along the floor and he noticed a long object wrapped in a blanket, lying against the opposite wall.
He thought it looked strange and was going to stop and investigate, but just then the witch cried out as if in pain.
"Hurry up, grandson, I am going to die if you don't hurry and start in kicking."
" I can investigate after I get through with her," thought he, so he started in kicking and every kick he would give her she would cry: "Harder, kick harder."
He had to kick seven times before he would get to the end of the pain, so he let out as hard as he could drive, and when he came to the last kick he hit the spike, and driving it through his foot, fell down in a dead swoon, and was rolled up in a blanket by the witch and placed beside his brother at the opposite side of the room.
When the second brother failed to return, the third went in search of the two missing ones. He fared no better than the second one, as he met the old witch who served him in a similar manner as she had his two brothers.
"Ha! Ha!" she laughed, when she caught the third, "I have only one more of them to catch, and when I get them I will keep them all here a year, and then I will turn them into horses and sell them back to their sister.
I hate her, for I was going to try and keep house for them and marry the oldest one, but she got ahead of me and became their sister, so now I will get my revenge on her.
Next year she will be riding and driving her brothers and she won't know it."
When the third brother failed to return, the sister cried and begged the last one not to venture out in search of them.
But go he must, and go he did, only to do as his three brothers had done.
Now the poor sister was nearly distracted.
Day and night she wandered over hills and through woods in hopes she might find or hear of some trace of them.
Her wanderings were in vain.
The hawks had not seen them after they had crossed the little stream.
The wolves and coyotes told her that they had seen nothing of her brothers out on the broad plains, and she had given them up for dead.
One day, as she was sitting by the little stream that flowed past their hut, throwing pebbles into the water and wondering what she should do, she picked up a pure white pebble, smooth and round, and after looking at it for a long time, threw it into the water.
No sooner had it hit the water than she saw it grow larger.
She took it out and looked at it and threw it in again.
This time it had assumed the form of a baby.
She took it out and threw it in the third time and the form took life and began to cry: "Ina, ina" (mother, mother).
She took the baby home and fed it soup, and it being an unnatural baby, quickly grew up to a good sized boy.
At the end of three months he was a good big, stout youth.
One day he said: "Mother, why are you living here alone? To whom do all these fine clothes and moccasins belong?" She then told him the story of her lost brothers.
"Oh, I know now where they are.
You make me lots of arrows.
I am going to find my uncles." She tried to dissuade him from going, but he was determined and said: "My father sent me to you so that I could find my uncles for you, and nothing can harm me, because I am stone and my name is "Stone Boy."
The mother, seeing that he was determined to go, made a whole quiver full of arrows for him, and off he started.
When he came to the old witch's hut, she was nowhere to be seen, so he pushed the door in and entered.
The witch was busily engaged cooking dinner.
"Why, my dear grandchild, you are just in time for dinner.
Sit down and we will eat before you continue your journey."
Stone boy sat down and ate dinner with the old witch.
She watched him very closely, but when she would be drinking her soup he would glance hastily around the room.
Finally he saw the four bundles on the opposite side of the room, and he guessed at once that there lay his four uncles.
When he had finished eating he took out his little pipe and filled it with "kini-kinic," and commenced to smoke, wondering how the old woman had managed to fool his smart uncles.
He couldn't study it out, so when he had finished his smoke he arose to pretend to go. When the old woman saw him preparing to leave, she said: "Grandson, will you kick me on the left side of my backbone.
I am nearly dead with pain and if you kick me good and hard it will cure me."
"All right, grandma," said the boy.
The old witch lay down on the floor and the boy started in to kick.
At the first kick he barely touched her.
"Kick as hard as you can, grandson; don't be afraid you will hurt me, because you can't." With that Stone Boy let drive and broke two ribs.
She commenced to yell and beg him to stop, but he kept on kicking until he had kicked both sides of her ribs loose from the backbone.
Then he jumped on her backbone and broke it and killed the old witch.
He built a big fire outside and dragged her body to it, and threw her into the fire.
Thus ended the old woman who was going to turn his uncles into horses.
Next he cut willows and stuck them into the ground in a circle.
The tops he pulled together, making a wickieup.
He then took the old woman's robes and blankets and covered the wickieup so that no air could get inside.
He then gathered sage brush and covered the floor with a good thick bed of sage; got nice round stones and got them red hot in the fire, and placed them in the wickieup and proceeded to carry his uncles out of the hut and lay them down on the soft bed of sage. Having completed carrying and depositing them around the pile of rocks, he got a bucket of water and poured it on the hot rocks, which caused a great vapor in the little wickie-up.
He waited a little while and then listened and heard some breathing inside, so he got another bucket and poured that on also.
After awhile he could hear noises inside as though some one were moving about.
He went again and got the third bucket and after he had poured that on the rocks, one of the men inside said:
"Whoever you are, good friend, don't bring us to life only to scald us to death again."
Stone boy then said: "Are all of you alive?" "Yes," said the voice. "Well, come out," said the boy.
And with that he threw off the robes and blankets, and a great cloud of vapor arose and settled around the top of the highest peak on the long range, and from that did Smoky Range derive its name.
The uncles, when they heard who the boy was, were very happy, and they all returned together to the anxiously waiting sister.
As soon as they got home, the brothers worked hard to gather enough wood to last them all winter.
Game they could get at all times of the year, but the heavy fall of snow covered most of the dry wood and also made it very difficult to drag wood through the deep snow.
So they took advantage of the nice fall weather and by the time the snow commenced falling they had enough wood gathered to last them throughout the winter.
After the snow fell a party of boys swiftly coasted down the big hill west of the brothers' hut.
The Stone boy used to stand and watch them for hours at a time.
His youngest uncle said: "Why don't you go up and coast with them?"
The boy said: "They may be afraid of me, but I guess I will try once, anyway."
So the next morning when the crowd came coasting, Stone boy started for the hill.
When he had nearly reached the bottom of the coasting hill all of the boys ran off excepting two little fellows who had a large coaster painted in different colors and had little bells tied around the edges, so when the coaster was in motion the bells made a cheerful tinkling sound.
As Stone boy started up the hill the two little fellows started down and went past him as though shot from a hickory bow.
When they got to the end of their slide, they got off and started back up the hill.
It being pretty steep, Stone boy waited for them, so as to lend a hand to pull the big coaster up the hill.
As the two little fellows came up with him he knew at once that they were twins, as they looked so much alike that the only way one could be distinguished from the other was by the scarfs they wore.
One wore red, the other black.
He at once offered to help them drag their coaster to the top of the hill.
When they got to the top the twins offered their coaster to him to try a ride.
At first he refused, but they insisted on his taking it, as they said they would sooner rest until he came back.
So he got on the coaster and flew down the hill, only he was such an expert he made a zigzag course going down and also jumped the coaster off a bank about four feet high, which none of the other coasters dared to tackle.
Being very heavy, however, he nearly smashed the coaster.
Upon seeing this wonderful jump, and the zigzag course he had taken going down, the twins went wild with excitement and decided that they would have him take them down when he got back.
So upon his arrival at the starting point, they both asked him at once to give them the pleasure of the same kind of a ride he had taken.
He refused, saying: "We will break your coaster.
I alone nearly smashed it, and if we all get on and make the same kind of a jump, I am afraid you will have to go home without your coaster."
"Well, take us down anyway, and if we break it our father will make us another one."
So he finally consented.
When they were all seated ready to start, he told them that when the coaster made the jump they must look straight ahead.
"By no means look down, because if you do we will go over the cut bank and land in a heap at the bottom of the gulch."
They said they would obey what he said, so off they started swifter than ever, on account of the extra weight, and so swiftly did the sleigh glide over the packed, frozen snow, that it nearly took the twins' breath away.
Like an arrow they approached the jump.
The twins began to get a little nervous. "Sit steady and look straight ahead," yelled Stone boy.
The twin next to Stone boy, who was steering behind, sat upright and looked far ahead, but the one in front crouched down and looked into the coulee.
Of course, Stone boy, being behind, fell on top of the twins, and being so heavy, killed both of them instantly, crushing them to a jelly.
The rest of the boys, seeing what had happened, hastened to the edge of the bank, and looking down, saw the twins laying dead, and Stone boy himself knocked senseless, lying quite a little distance from the twins.
The boys, thinking that all three were killed, and that Stone boy had purposely steered the sleigh over the bank in such a way that it would tip and kill the twins, returned to the village with this report.
Now, these twins were the sons of the head chief of the Buffalo Nation.
So at once the chief and his scouts went over to the hill to see if the boys had told the truth.
When they arrived at the bank they saw the twins lying dead, but where was Stone boy? They looked high and low through the gulch, but not a sign of him could they find.
Tenderly they picked up the dead twins and carried them home, then held a big council and put away the bodies of the dead in Buffalo custom.
A few days after this the uncles were returning from a long journey.
When they drew near their home they noticed large droves of buffalo gathered on their side of the range.
Hardly any buffalo ever ranged on this east side of the range before, and the brothers thought it strange that so many should so suddenly appear there now.
When they arrived at home their sister told them what had happened to the chief's twins, as her son had told her the whole story upon his arrival at home after the accident.
"Well, probably all the buffalo we saw were here for the council and funeral," said the older brother.
"But where is my nephew?" (Stone boy) he asked his sister.
"He said he had noticed a great many buffalo around lately and he was going to learn, if possible, what their object was," said the sister. "Well, we will wait until his return."
When Stone boy left on his trip that morning, before the return of his uncles, he was determined to ascertain what might be the meaning of so many buffalo so near the home of himself and uncles.
He approached several bunches of young buffalo, but upon seeing him approaching they would scamper over the hills.
Thus he wandered from bunch to bunch, scattering them all.
Finally he grew tired of their cowardice and started for home.
When he had come to within a half mile or so of home he saw an old shaggy buffalo standing by a large boulder, rubbing on it first one horn and then the other.
On coming up close to him, the boy saw that the bull was so old he could hardly see, and his horns so blunt that he could have rubbed them for a year on that boulder and not sharpened them so as to hurt anyone.
"What are you doing here, grandfather?" asked the boy.
"I am sharpening my horns for the war," said the bull.
"What war?" asked the boy.
"Haven't you heard," said the old bull, who was so near sighted he did not recognize Stone boy.
"The chief's twins were killed by Stone boy, who ran them over a cut bank purposely, and the chief has ordered all of his buffalo to gather here, and when they arrive we are going to kill Stone boy and his mother and his uncles."
"Is that so? When is the war to commence?"
"In five days from now we will march upon the uncles and trample and gore them all to death."
"Well, grandfather, I thank you for your information, and in return will do you a favor that will save you so much hard work on your blunt horns."
So saying he drew a long arrow from his quiver and strung his bow, attached the arrow to the string and drew the arrow half way back.
The old bull, not seeing what was going on, and half expecting some kind of assistance in his horn sharpening process, stood perfectly still.
Thus spoke Stone boy:
"Grandfather, you are too old to join in a war now, and besides if you got mixed up in that big war party you might step in a hole or stumble and fall and be trampled to death.
That would be a horrible death, so I will save you all that suffering by just giving you this.
" At this word he pulled the arrow back to the flint head and let it fly.
True to his aim, the arrow went in behind the old bull's foreleg, and with such force was it sent that it went clear through the bull and stuck into a tree two hundred feet away.
Walking over to the tree, he pulled out his arrow.
Coolly straightening his arrow between his teeth and sighting it for accuracy, he shoved it back into the quiver with its brothers, exclaiming:
"I guess, grandpa, you won't need to sharpen your horns for Stone boy and his uncles."
Upon his arrival home he told his uncles to get to work building three stockades with ditches between and make the ditches wide and deep so they will hold plenty of buffalo.
"The fourth fence I will build myself," he said.
The brothers got to work early and worked until very late at night.
They built three corrals and dug three ditches around the hut, and it took them three days to complete the work. Stone boy hadn't done a thing towards building his fence yet, and there were only two days more left before the charge of the buffalo would commence.
Still the boy didn't seem to bother himself about the fence.
Instead he had his mother continually cutting arrow sticks, and as fast as she could bring them he would shape them, feather and head them.
So by the time his uncles had their fences and corrals finished he had a thousand arrows finished for each of his uncles.
The last two days they had to wait, the uncles joined him and they finished several thousand more arrows.
The evening before the fifth day he told his uncles to put up four posts, so they could use them as seats from which to shoot.
While they were doing this, Stone boy went out to scout and see how things looked.
At daylight he came hurriedly in saying, "You had better get to the first corral; they are coming."
"You haven't built your fence, nephew." Whereupon Stone boy said: "I will build it in time; don't worry, uncle."
The dust on the hillsides rose as great clouds of smoke from a forest fire.
Soon the leaders of the charge came in sight, and upon seeing the timber stockade they gave forth a great snort or roar that fairly shook the earth.
Thousands upon thousands of mad buffalo charged upon the little fort.
The leaders hit the first stockade and it soon gave way.
The maddened buffalo pushed forward by the thousands behind them; plunged forward, only to fall into the first ditch and be trampled to death by those behind them.
The brothers were not slow in using their arrows, and many a noble beast went down before their deadly aim with a little flint pointed arrow buried deep in his heart.
The second stockade stood their charge a little longer than did the first, but finally this gave way, and the leaders pushed on through, only to fall into the second ditch and meet a similar fate to those in the first.
The brothers commenced to look anxiously towards their nephew, as there was only one more stockade left, and the second ditch was nearly bridged over with dead buffalo, with the now thrice maddened buffalo attacking the last stockade more furiously than before, as they could see the little hut through the openings in the corral.
"Come in, uncles," shouted Stone boy.
They obeyed him, and stepping to the center he said: "Watch me build my fence."
Suiting the words, he took from his belt an arrow with a white stone fastened to the point and fastening it to his bow, he shot it high in the air. Straight up into the air it went, for two or three thousand feet, then seemed to stop suddenly and turned with point down and descended as swiftly as it had ascended.
Upon striking the ground a high stone wall arose, enclosing the hut and all who were inside. Just then the buffalo broke the last stockade only to fill the last ditch up again.
In vain did the leaders butt the stone wall.
They hurt themselves, broke their horns and mashed their snouts, but could not even scar the wall.
The uncles and Stone boy in the meantime rained arrows of death into their ranks.
When the buffalo chief saw what they had to contend with, he ordered the fight off.
The crier or herald sang out: "Come away, come away, Stone boy and his uncles will kill all of us."
So the buffalo withdrew, leaving over two thousand of their dead and wounded on the field, only to be skinned and put away for the feasts of Stone boy and his uncles, who lived to be great chiefs of their own tribe,
and whose many relations soon joined them on the banks of Stone Boy Creek.

2023.06.02 00:55 Superb-Ad4997 Wildflower Weekend Wedding - Budget/Recap May 2023

This subreddit allowed me to plan our wedding. I am so grateful and found these breakdowns especially useful, and now a cathartic experience for me and hopefully a way to give back!
First step that helped us the most was deciding as a team early on what we wanted our wedding to bring to us and our future.
We were inspired early on by This Post and the comments.
We have both been through a lot of life and have a lot of gratitude for the people that have gotten us to this point and wanted to make space to celebrate with all of them in a big way. This inspired the rest of our wedding planning, committing us to a big guest list, requiring a big venue. We invited 304 people (154 households), 179 RSVP’d yes, and had ~10 no-show. Our family and friends live all over the country and some abroad, so we decided to pick a location close to us, but that had multiple houses on site to host our family/bridal party for the weekend (thurs-sunday; saturday wedding) so that we could have more time with those people closest to us.
Total: $69,407 (MCOL area)
Venue: $28,250 “Weekend Package”
Additional Lodging: $3965
Paper: $845
Decor: $992
Florals: $2322
Food: $8133
Alcohol: $3752
DJ: $1925
Photography/Videography: $9839
Clothing: $3930
Other: $3349
Tips: $770
Our wedding was amazing for us. It felt like an event that truly encapsulated who we are as individuals and as a couple, and that chance to celebrate with so many people we love was priceless. It felt like all the spreadsheets we’d worked on for the last 2 years turned into reality. This is the main master spreadsheet I used:
Google Spreadsheet Wedding Planning
It’s created from all sorts of different helpful spreadsheets I found here and from other wedding websites. The “Checklist” really doesn’t start until I realized how easy it is to get lost in needing to capture so many personal little details that would keep me up at night feeling like they were slipping through the cracks. But if you’re starting from the beginning, you will need to include the big ticket “check boxes” that are in the budget portion. Hopefully it can help some others! Happy planning Weddit!

2023.06.02 00:53 Savings-Ad-3340 Told my closest friend that I do not want to room with him and now our friendship is strained.

My closest friend asked me to room with him about two weeks ago. At first I was somewhat apprehensible as I'm very introverted and would rather live alone, but I eventually gave in and said sure.
Well, after finding out more information regarding my job (I'm currently working as a temp, however this job will provide great experience and it's something I can see myself doing long-term), after a phone call he suddenly throws me with "Oh yeah, my parents and I found a house to rent. I'll send you the address. I already took a tour and everything." At first I was hopeful because his parents assisted him, but after taking a look at the house I was disappointed as it's in a horrible, seedy area. I basically told him absolutely not and that I'm also not 100% sure if this temp job will turn into a permanent gig. I then told him I'm going to just start looking for studio apartments (I'm currently living at home).
We got into a pretty heated argument over this. He was pissed that I wouldn't accept renting the house but I had no say in it at all. It seems like he tried to guilt me into renting the house "the owners really want me!!" and the whole nine yards and made me feel like shit.
His living situation has not been the greatest these past couple of years and I feel bad for him, but at the same time I've realized at the end of the day, I just want to live on my own. Our friendship is now strained and I don't know what will happen after all of this. He's like a brother to me and I partially blame myself for not being more assertive from the start, instead of just changing my mind.
Is there anything I can do? We both apologized to one another but I can see there is still tension.

2023.06.02 00:52 Mummels_5 Ireland questions.. itinerary/ tattoos ...

I'm taking the kids (23- 20- and 18) to Ireland in October for the first time. I've been there before so this trip is mostly for them. I want them to see as much as we can but not so much that we miss the details if that makes sense. We're also looking to get some kind of family tattoos while we are there. Not sure of what. They don't all have to match and they don't have to be anything Irish. Was thinking more travel/ family related. But I have no idea where the best place to do this would be. Here is the itinerary so far. I'm more than open to suggestions!
Thank you so much for any insights you can offer!

2023.06.02 00:51 AutoModerator Here's How To Watch The Little Mermaid (Free) Online ON Reddit

‘The Little Mermaid’ is finally here. Find out how to watch Disney's latest live-action adaptation animated film The Little Mermaid online for free.
Watch Now: The Little Mermaid 2023 Movie Online Free
Animated Film! Here are options for downloading or watching The Little Mermaid streaming the full movie online for free on 123movies & Reddit, including where to watch Disney's latest live-action adaptation movies at home. Is The Little Mermaid 2023 available to stream? Is watching The Little Mermaid on Peacock, Disney Plus, HBO Max, Netflix or Amazon Prime? Yes, we have found an authentic streaming option/service.
The new live-action 'The Little Mermaid' movie stars Halle Bailey and Melissa McCarthy. Make sure to keep on reading to learn where you can watch and stream it.
Folks, it's time to dive under the sea once again. Over the last few years, Disney has recreated their top animated musical films into live-action movies. The Little Mermaid is no different, and viewers can't wait to swim into theaters to catch a glimpse of how the movie will stand up against the original version.
Walt Disney Studios has established a remarkable trend of making live-action remakes of its classic stories. One after the other, all the fairytales of the past era are being brought to life by the studio in an attempt to tell the magical stories in a new light of living characters. With the live-action Peter Pan & Wendy due out in April, Disney will continue their string of live-action remakes a month later with The Little Mermaid.
Get ready to go "under the sea!" The latest of Disney's hugely successful line of live-action remakes, Ariel (Halle Bailey) is set to return to theaters for the first time in almost thirty-five years with The Little Mermaid (2023). The Walt Disney Company once again invites audiences to travel under the sea to see Princess Ariel's story unfold like never before. Featuring direction from veteran musical filmmaker Rob Marshall and other roles inhabited by major Hollywood stars like Melissa McCarthy as Ursula the Sea Witch and Javier Bardem as King Triton, the film is bound to be a bona fide hit at the box office.
Though the upcoming and highly anticipated film will have stiff competition against two stand-up comedians on the weekend it releases, The Little Mermaid is destined to show that life is better down where it's wetter under the sea this Summer movie season. To find showtimes and streaming information on Disney's latest big-budget reimagining of an animated classic, here is where you can watch The Little Mermaid.
Actress Halle Bailey as Ariel, the iconic mermaid princess who longs to be part of the the mysteriously world housed above the ocean floor. When she saves the handsome Prince Eric (Jonah Hauer-King) from a shipwreck, she makes a deal with the sea witch Ursula (Melissa McCarthy) in order to gain human legs and go on land to impress him. But there's one catch to the transaction: Ariel must trade her voice in order for her to try and see the things she's after. But as fans of the original 1989 film know, this comes with a series of consequences that threaten both her existence and the lives of those she loves.
Before we ask if you're interested in seeing this, we know you are. But like us, you're probably wondering how to watch and stream The Little Mermaid online. Luckily, we have some clues and it's likely to land on a major streaming site very soon. So climb aboard, because here's where to watch and stream The Little Mermaid online.
What Is the Release Date for The Little Mermaid?
Ariel's quest to go from a mermaid into a human begins anew when The Little Mermaid premieres this Memorial Day Weekend on Friday, May 26th, 2023. The film will be going up against not one, but two stand-up comedians and their films that weekend, with Sebastian Maniscalco's About My Father and Bert Kreischer's The Machine premiering on the same day. That said, The Little Mermaid will almost certainly be the choice for younger audiences and families.
While some Disney films are heading straight to Disney+, The Little Mermaid will first be shown exclusively in theaters.
Where To Watch The Little Mermaid Online:
As of now, the only way to watch Fast X is to head out to a movie theater when it premieres on May 26, 2023. You can find a local showing on Fandango.
Watch Now: The Little Mermaid (2023) Movie Online Free
Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait for it to become available to rent or purchase on digital platforms like Amazon, Vudu, YouTube or Apple, or become available to stream on Disney+.
How to Watch The Little Mermaid
At the moment, you can watch The Little Mermaid at your local theater. But like most movies these days, it should hit a streaming website in the near future.
Like its predecessor, The Little Mermaid is a flick produced by multimedia conglomerate Disney. What's more, the production studio owns a number of other famous franchises, like the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Wars. Titles made under these umbrellas have both hit Disney+ sometime after arriving at the box office. Fans may also know the original Little Mermaid is currently available to stream on the site as well. So, if the 2023 version follows the same pattern, folks will likely get to see The Little Mermaid on Disney+ later this year too.
As for an exact release date for The Little Mermaid, that's more complicated. Most movies produced by Disney often go to its streamer site within three months after debuting in theaters, like the most recent Marvel film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. If this is the case for The Little Mermaid, it will probably drop in late August 2023 or sometime near Labor Day in early September.
When the time comes for The Little Mermaid to splash onto Disney+ though, make sure you're all prepared to watch it. If you don't have access yet, you can opt into a 30-day free trial before choosing a plan that start at $7.99 per month or $79.99 per year. After your account is all set, click on the title page on Disney+'s official website or the Disney+ app.
As you wait for The Little Mermaid to hit the streamer, why don't you watch the animated version and its sequel The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea? Or if you want to immerse yourself in another live-action version, click on the 2019 ABC TV special The Little Mermaid Live!. Enjoy!
Will The Little Mermaid Be in Theaters or on Streaming?
Unlike several of Disney's other live-action remakes such as Pinocchio and Peter Pan & Wendy, The Little Mermaid will be exclusively in movie theaters first with tickets available for pre-sale now.
After The Little Mermaid has completed its exclusive theatrical run, the film will be released on the Disney+ streaming service. Based on Disney's past release models, the film won't be made available to stream before 45 to 90 days after its theatrical release.
When will The Little Mermaid be streaming on Disney+?
The Little Mermaid Disney+ premiere date is tentatively estimated to be August 30, 2023.
While no official Little Mermaid streaming date has been confirmed by Disney, most of its major movie releases drop on Disney+ following a minimum 90-day period, and typically premiere on the platform on Wednesdays, making Wednesday, August 30 the most likely date for Disney’s The Little Mermaid live-action streaming release.
Will The Little Mermaid Be Streaming On Disney+?
The 2023 version of The Little Mermaid will only be in theaters initially. After The Little Mermaid has completed its exclusive theatrical run, it is likely to stream on Disney Plus. You can also watch the animated version of Hans Christian Andersen's 1837 fairy tale of Ariel on Disney Plus now.
While you will only be able to catch the new "The Little Mermaid" in theaters starting next Friday, you can still sign up for Disney+ now to refresh yourself on the characters, song, plot and magical fun from the highly anticipated film. The 1989 version of the movie was a catalyst for Disney's animation renaissance throughout the '90s and it still holds up today.
An ad-supported Disney+ subscription starts at $8 per month, but you can get an ad-free access to the service for $11 monthly or bundle the Disney streaming service with Hulu and ESPN+ starting at $13 per month. Disney+ boasts a huge collection of movies and television series, including Marvel and Star Wars content. If you add in Hulu and ESPN, you have nearly unlimited entertainment at your fingertips.
Is The Little Mermaid streaming on Netflix?
No, The Little Mermaid will not be on Netflix — at least not any time soon. In the meantime, you’ll just have to head out to a movie theater or wait for it to become available to stream on Disney+.
Will The Little Mermaid Be On HBO Max?
No, The Little Mermaid will not be on HBO Max since it’s not a Universal Pictures movie. Last year, the company released its films in theaters and on the streamer on the same day. However, they now allow a 45-day window between the theatrical release and the streaming release.
Is The Little Mermaid Available On Hulu?
Viewers are saying that they want to view the new animation movie The Little Mermaid on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time.

The Little Mermaid Cast and Characters
The Little Mermaid was written by David Magee and directed by Rob Marshall. It stars the following actors:
What is The Little Mermaid About?
The official synopsis for The Little Mermaid by Walt Disney Studios read:
“The Little Mermaid” is the beloved story of Ariel, a beautiful and spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. The youngest of King Triton’s daughters and the most defiant, Ariel longs to find out more about the world beyond the sea, and while visiting the surface, falls for the dashing Prince Eric. While mermaids are forbidden to interact with humans, Ariel must follow her heart. She makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, which gives her a chance to experience life on land, but ultimately places her life – and her father’s crown – in jeopardy.
There is not much mystery in The Little Mermaid's plot. As seen in Disney's many other live-action remakes, it is anticipated that the film's plot will largely stick to the original. With the well-known song "Part of Your World," in which Ariel sings about her wish to be a part of the world beyond the water, i.e., the human realm, the teaser already alluded to Ariel's fascination with the human world. Fans will get to see Ariel and Prince Eric's romance as they deal with the challenges posed by their differences.

2023.06.02 00:47 organicenrichedflour Tenants rights during the sale of a home?

Hi folks. I'll keep the story as short as I can:
I've been living in a rowhouse for 8 years. I and 3 other people rent the upstairs unit from the landlord, who lives downstairs.
Landlord has decided to sell the home. She has serious buyers, but at the time of writing they have not yet closed on the house—however, they're jerking current LL and us around as if they do.
Buyers initially said they wanted tenants, they were gonna increase our rent a bit but we said okay. They made us go through the whole application process (including a fee, which they said they'd return to us because it's dumb to pay an app fee for where we're already paying rent), approved us, then sent us a lease...which was a very bad lease. Multiple illegal/unenforceable clauses among other unreasonable things, including some real red flags. Yeah, at that point it's looking like we wouldn't want to deal with them as landlords, but we've got a good thing up here and didn't want to move.
So under the encouragement of a lawyer I know, the other roommates and I proposed some edits and sent it back, along with a reminder that we need 90 days notice for lease non-renewal or rent increase (which they were either ignorant of or hoping WE were ignorant of.)
They now are backing out of the tenant thing and are saying they do not want us as tenants, specifically because they do not know the law and do not like being made to feel like that's their fault. (I'm barely even paraphrasing there. It would be funny if it weren't the roof over my head. But basically, they don't like that we didn't roll over.)
So now they're saying they'll only buy the house if delivered empty. They've acknowledged the 90 day timeline, so current LL gave us official notice today—she doesn't want to, she was really trying to keep us here, but she's so tired of this whole process. However, they're refusing to repay the application fee (they're saying we weren't approved—we were, they even sent us a lease) and we're concerned at the possibility that they could use our application docs to qualify as projected rental income for the mortgage. Is that a possibility?
Is there anything I should be aware of in this situation? Any rights we might have, possibility that they could screw over the current LL because they haven't closed yet but are making her give us notice, etc?
I was thinking it was a pretty straightforward "if we get the legal 90 day notice, that's it, this is the risk of renting" but a few people have mentioned things like how LL should demand more money for delivering it empty, or we should receive money for vacating, idk. I'm just wondering if there are terms or things I should go look up. To be clear, LL would not be mad if they backed out, as long as she doesn't get screwed over in the process.

2023.06.02 00:44 influorescence Housemate leaves toilet seat dirty with his flaky ass crust

To preface this post, I don't consider myself to be a "clean freak" or germaphobe by any means, hell I have ADHD myself so my standards for cleanliness/tidiness are not extreme by any means. That being said, we all have to draw the line somewhere. I moved into my house about 6 months ago, so I have been dealing with this problem every day of those past 6 months. I have a housemate, let's call him Jared, who is in his late 30s and works as a line cook at a nearby country club. After he moved in, I noticed an odor lingering in the bathroom that wouldn't go away. I soon realized that the odor was coming from his towel, which he hangs on the back of the door, and smells like it has never been washed + has some serious mildew stank. Gross. Then I started waking up in the morning to the disgusting sound of him hocking up copious amounts of phlegm in the sink, which he would not wash down the drain but rather leave clinging onto the side of the sink. One time, there was a bloody tonsil stone left on the side of the sink. Fucking rancid. Then, I noticed that everytime id sit down to use the toilet there was a light dusting of crusty skin flakes and scabs that he would deposit on the toilet seat and not wipe up. So every time I used my bathroom I'd have to wipe his nasty ass crust off the seat. (see picture) This is where I draw the line. We are the only two people who use the downstairs bathroom so I know it's from him, and I have no idea what to do other than keep wiping down the seat before I use it, which makes me cringe. I think I'd have maybe a bit of empathy for him if he wasn't such a huge asshole, but this dude has tried to start fights with my other housemates and also never pays his rent or utilities on time. He also recently crashed his car so he's been home constantly, which makes all these issues even worse. I have made a point of avoiding him and my bathroom as much as possible and trying to go other places to do so instead. I am so grossed out by the thought of sitting on the toilet seat and getting his skin flakes all over me. I just had to tell someone because it's driving me absolutely insane and it's so fucking gross but I can't really confront him about it...

2023.06.02 00:43 TessyKay Clarification/advice please on landlord raising rent by 25%

Tl:dr on long term 30 day rolling contract for part 11 years, landlord wants to increase rent by 25% & sign new contract, options are to sign or move, correct?
Edit: in England
We have lived in our current house for 13 years, we started with the standard assured shorthold tenancy agreement for the first 12 months, then another for the second year.
We never got given another contract despite asking as our landlord, while being by far the best we have had, is distant and very much the kind of person who says he will do something then you won’t hear from him for months/years.
Regardless of this the agreement stated that if we didn’t sign another we would then be on a rolling 30 day contract, which I guess we have been on now for the past 11 years.
After not hearing from the landlord for at least a couple of years he knocked just before Xmas saying that he was sorry but he is going to have to raise our rent because of the cost of living increases and his mortgage going up, and that he would let us know by how much and be in contract beginning of January.
Well again nothing heard from him for months until this week when he texts saying rent is going to increase by what works out to be approx 25% and he has a new contract for us to sign, we just need to tell him how long we want it for.
Am I correct in thinking that he is able to increase the rent by this much or any amount because we are on a rolling 30 day contract and it’s kinda a case of we can sign it or move? (He hasn’t said that, he is genuinely a nice guy just always seems busy and scatterbrained so when you ask for things to be done in the house he forgets).
I know that generally landlords can only increase rent by a certain amount but this doesn’t apply to us does it because we are not in an assured shorthand tenancy agreement?
I am saying to husband to sign it for a year or two but I want things actually fixed in the house and to try and go on the council housing list as I now have mobility problems and am disabled, he is off the opinion to just sign a new contract and stay here. Fwiw there are jobs that haven’t been done since we moved in 13 years ago, like replacing the kitchen drawers which were broken when moving in.
Also to note, while 25% is a lot for the rent to be raised, he has not raised it once since we have lived here and it’s still on the cheaper end for our area.

2023.06.02 00:36 Rhaversen [Windows XP][2005] Creepy point and click puzzle game

Platform(s): Windows XP Genre: Horror, point and click, mystery Estimated year of release: Before 2005 Graphics/art style: 2D drawn and animated Notable characters: None Other details: I played it around 2005, but it may have been released some time before. It was a simple point-and-click computer game for Windows XP that I rented from the local library as a CD-ROM. It's a horror game where you enter a spooky house and you have one hour to solve a mystery. There is a candle on the screen which slowly burns down, and when the light has burned out the hour has passed and you have lost the game if you have not solved the puzzle. I only remember three levels from the game: A planetarium where the entire solar system was modeled in an orrery. If you pressed the planets, their names were read aloud. This was also a puzzle as you had to arrange the planets in the right order to unlock the next level. A greenhouse where a large carnivorous plant attacks you if you get too close. A lavel where you have to climb some stairs, but death's heads fall down the stairs which you have to avoid, and which do damage if they hit you. In addition, there was also the main room with a large wide staircase in the middle with a lot of doors. It was primarily 2d but drawn in a way to make it look 3d It wasn't 3d. Some levels, for example with the skulls falling down the stairs, had elements with 3d. The death heads rolled around and fell down the stairs like it was 3d, even though it was just differently rotated and scaled sprites. It didn't look very realistic since it's an older game. The overarching goal was to solve a mystery or problem before midnight. I can't remember what the mystery was as I never finished the game. If the time runs out, you lose the game and have to start all over again. All the things you had collected throughout the game, such as keys, hints and other things, you lose. The whole point of the game was a lot of puzzles and riddles that you had to solve in order to progress. A bit like an escape room. The whole game takes place inside this big creepy old abandoned house in the middle of the night, and it's a relatively short game, at only an hour The game is most likely a children's game, so it is not bloody or violent. The game is very indie and small, and it is possibly also published by a Danish producer as there are few places where Danish is spoken. Otherwise it could have been translated. Please take everything I say with a grain of salt as I'm not sure of the details since it's been a long time since I played it. I hope someone knows about it! It would be very nostalgic to play again.

2023.06.02 00:36 Friendsthatdonthug Diagnose my mom

Just asking out of curiosity. I haven’t spoke to my mother in many, many years, but since I was a young child (up until my 20’s) she exhibited these behaviors (I’m going to give a few examples with each bullet point). BPD? HPD? Neither?:
-Very outwardly confident and social. Loves to be the life of the party.
-Excessive spending beyond her means. Never prioritized paying bills. Went on vacations, bought clothes, always got her nails and hair done despite having no money. Would send us kids to school with bad checks to pay for our field trips. Bill collectors were always calling. House was foreclosed on.
-When my sister was 16, my mother fraudulently took out a credit card in her name. Spent $5k and never paid the bill. My sister only found out when she was in college and went to rent an apartment and she couldn’t get approved because she had bad credit. She stole money my siblings and I would get as Christmas gifts. When I got my first job she stole my debit card. I went crazy looking for it and she denied knowing where it was. Years later I found it in an old wallet of hers.
-Constant lying about everything and anything. Told my sister that she got her and her boyfriend a hotel in Atlantic City for her birthday. When my sister got there, the reservation didn’t exist. She would lie to people in the grocery store about the ages of her kids, she would lie about being divorced (she was really still married to my dad), lie about her parents (said her parents were lawyers, once said they were dead and they weren’t). Moved my siblings and I in with a man we had never met and said he was a doctor but he was really a gas station manager.
-Would hoard large amounts of clothing and possessions. Not to the extent that she would be on a show like “hoarders” but still kept everything. Sometimes she would literally have bags of garbage (mostly bills she wasn’t paying) in the trunk of her car. Car was always packed with junk.
-Cheated on my father often (although he cheated on her often as well).
-She has 6 kids. None of whom speak to her due to the above behaviors. She has had 2 or 3 stable friends the last few years but since I was a child she has gone through dozens of close friends due to screwing them over with money or just engaging in drama.

2023.06.02 00:31 Lapras_Lass I'm Quitting Prozac Cold Turkey

Hi, everyone. I'm coming here for support, advice, and any tips or info concerning my quitting Prozac.
The short version: I've been on generic fluoxetine for almost 10 years, up to 40 mg per day for the past six years or so. I did contact my doctor to get advice about quitting, and she suggested just going cold turkey. It's been one week since my last dose, and symptoms haven't really started yet. I also have a prescription for .25 mg alprazolam (Xanax) tablets that I take only intermittently for panic attacks, and I'm on birth control hormones to regulate my menstrual cycle.
The long, LONG version: Ten years ago, I was having frequent panic attacks, nightmares, flashbacks, and freakouts. I went to a mental health center hoping that I could talk to a therapist, but a doctor there just gave me a prescription for 10 mg Prozac. It helped for a few months, but when it stopped working, I saw another doctor who changed my prescription to another SSRI. I had a terrible reaction to it, so she switched me twice more with much the same results. She eventually put me back on Prozac, this time at 20 mg. After that, I switched doctors again, and she upped my dose to 40 mg. This is the same doctor I'm seeing now.
I never really felt as if the Prozac was doing anything, but I stayed on it because I was afraid of any possible withdrawal symptoms. I frequently forgot to take it, and would suffer wild mood swings (keeping in mind that when I forgot to take the Prozac, I was also forgetting my hormones). Over the past few years, though, several things have changed that have had me contemplating quitting.
First, I did see a therapist about five years ago. She helped me to sort through things that were causing me PTSD, and with the therapy program, the nightmares and flashbacks went away. She also diagnosed me with autism spectrum disorder. I learned that I am prone to stimulus overload and also suffer from misophonia, and my panic attacks have almost completely stopped through management of those issues. I finally feel as if we've really gotten to the root of my problems, and my life has been vastly improved by learning these things about myself.
Second, I began to suffer from intense insomnia starting a few years ago. Even though the nightmares ceased, it was like I just could not fall asleep no matter what I did. My doctor prescribed various sleep aids, none of which worked. Sleeping pills of various strengths and preparations, melatonin, valerian... I even got desperate enough to try NyQuil. They would all do the job of making me drowsy, but I still could not fall asleep, nor could I stay asleep for more than four hours at a time. I did notice, though, that whenever I would forget my medications, I would fall asleep and stay asleep much more easily. The last time I "went off" of my meds, I did have intense side effects, but I was able to sleep at night.
The insomnia exacerbated my feelings of fatigue, so most days I was on auto-pilot. I would sleep all day and stay up all night. My sex drive had been plummeting for a while, and I lost the ability to exercise. After having covid, I've been left with shaky hands and dizziness that occur intermittently. I also have IBS caused by anxiety, and that got worse, as well. I had trouble losing weight despite being on a strict diet and exercise program. I began to think that all of these things were connected after they all improved when I forgot my meds.
I asked my doctor about quitting, and she said that she had no objection. She advised that I most likely would not need to taper doses because of fluoxetine's long half-life and the fact that withdrawal symptoms often occur even with tapered doses.
It's been one week since my last dose of Prozac. I know that it's too early for withdrawal to kick in, but I am already experiencing dizzy spells and slight nausea. The insomnia, though, has stopped. I really do believe now that the Prozac was causing it. Because I'm still taking my hormone pills, my mood has remained stable, unlike the times when I forgot my meds. My sex drive has started to go back to normal, and my hands are steadier. I never even thought to connect the shaking hands to Prozac until they improved this week, though that may have nothing to do with anything.
As I mentioned, I have a prescription for Xanax that I take for major panic attacks. I don't take it often, but now and then it helps to calm me down when other methods aren't working. I'm wondering if it will be a viable option for easing withdrawal symptoms if and when they begin. My doctor said, "I don't see why not," but couldn't offer much more insight than that. Any ideas on taking Xanax or a similar medication for SSRI withdrawal?
I feel lucky to have the support system that I do. My husband and I live with my parents, and I have three people in the house to help me if symptoms get bad. I want to do this now, because my mom is most likely going to have knee replacement surgery soon, and she'll need my help to recover. I also help to take care of my dad, who is disabled (he's diabetic, had a stroke two years ago, and needs general help around the house), and I'd like to get this all over with so I can keep helping him. My husband is very proactive about helping my parents, but he works full time and I don't want to ask him to pitch in more than he already does (he keeps up with the yard and runs errands for the household).
I guess my major worry is that I'll be somehow unable to do my job, which is to cook and clean for everyone and help my dad around the house and with business. There are four adults living here, but I don't want to put more on them than I have to. They all know that I'm going off of Prozac, and I gave them the rundown of symptoms as given to me by my doctor.
I know I'll just have to wait and see how badly I'm affected, but I'm sort of hoping that someone can give me an idea of how debilitating withdrawal might be. Like, at its worst, what can I expect? Does anyone have experience with taking Xanax or a similar medication to help with SSRI withdrawal? Anyone else have any tips or advice or just a shared experience? If you made it through all of this, thank you for reading. I think posting this helped ease some of my anxiety already.

2023.06.02 00:29 HappilyAHeathen Girlfriend deliberately let me think she was dead.

I mostly just need to vent about this. I'm a man in my late thirties. I spent the entirety of my twenties committed to one person and dated sporadically in my thirties with less than inspiring results.
Had been in a relationship with this girl for three or four months. She was about 8 years younger than me, worked part time as a barista and lived with her mother in a one bedroom apartment but she was incredibly sweet and enthusiastic and would do these sweet gestures like writing me letters about how excited she was to be with me and bringing lunch to me at work so I fell for her pretty hard and fast--dating in my thirties has generally been a pretty disappointing affair, with most women treating me like some kind of consolation settlement for not getting what they really wanted, so spending time with someone who seemed genuinely enthusiastic about me was.... like a drug.
After about four months or so she wanted to meet my family who I'm not on great terms with but I settled and took her to my brother and sister-in-law's place. While she was there, they let slip that I live... uncomfortably close to my mother--when the pandemic ended, my landlords hiked their rent beyond what I was willing to pay so I reached out to my mother's landlady who had what I needed but the catch was being essentially next door to her. I'm not on great terms with my mother so I spent the entire time living there trying to pretend her place wasn't a rock's throw away... therefore it never really occurred to me to mention it.
Anyway, when my girlfriend found out, she didn't handle it well and accused me of hiding things from her. I apologized and we had a very long talk about it and it seemed like things had gotten better for half a week or so. One morning she was leaving my place to go to a class and about five minutes after she left, my entire house began to shake--it turns out a tornado had torn through the area, ripped the roofs off of a number of businesses and residences--there was a car crushed under a tree all of about a block away from my home so when I got out to survey the damage I was immediately worried about her.
Texted her immediately and asked if she was okay but got no response. I work in tv so my entire day was occupied with covering the path of the storm and all of the damage it had caused in between trying to see if there was anyone who could safely check on her. By the end of what turned out to be a twelve hour day I was a shaking mess with still no response--and I wouldn't get one for another three days. It was nonchalant and completely unapologetic. After that response, I wouldn't hear from her for another week when I finally got upset.
She called and still didn't apologize, only giving me a lame excuse about not being in a good headspace but I was so happy to hear her voice for the first time since the tornado hit that I forgave her. For the next couple weeks we kept making plans with about a 75% chance of her cancelling at the last minute. During the last night we were together she found out that one of my best friends who she hadn't met yet (new mother, so not a lot of time for socializing) and I had dated very briefly about eight years before, proclaimed she was sick of the lies and stormed out of my home. She broke up with me via text and told me never to talk to her again.
In summary I guess this post is half complaining about ghosting and half me trying to figure normal people out... like I'm about 80% sure I'm some variety of on the spectrum but it wasn't really a thing that was tested regularly when I was younger and don't really care enough to bother now, so I guess I need to have normal brains explained to me sometimes. Should I move forward in life always ready to detail every bit of minutia about my life in explicit and immediate detail, such as exactly what proximity my mother's home is to mine and whether or not my best friend and I initially dated for a hot second before deciding we'd much rather be friends almost a decade ago?

2023.06.02 00:29 FreshPrior2495 My (30m) partner (26f) has a severely low sex drive

Me and my partner met abroad doing international internships, both coming from different countries (EU).
Started dating after a couple of weeks and long story short i decided to move to her country with her and start a life.
Early on in our relationship (you think you’ve probably heard this one before) things were great in the intimacy department for about a year. Intimacy was happening multiple times a week and it was relatively good sex.
Once we’d moved, I got a well-paying job pretty fast (thanks tech sector). I managed to get citizenship reasonably swiftly and I got managed to rent a house. We were staying at her parents’ house before that.
During this time sex was becoming more and more sparse and much less initiated by her. Despite her trouble to find a job, self esteem issues and a general sense of guilt about me having to pay for anything, I never brought any of this up and was happy to pay her way as we have a happy enough relationship aside from the intimacy. We make food together, have conversations, go on holidays, do activities as a couple, do things with friends and love our pets.
At this point I attributed her low sex drive to the aforementioned downsides of her not finding work, self image issues etc.
That was four years ago. She’s since found a job - one she’s genuinely getting fulfilment from, we’ve bought a house together, have some pets.
Over that period of time, the frequency of our intimacy has diminished further. Down from once a month to once every couple of months to twice a year.
There’s been no cheating of any kind as far as I know, nor sexual pressure from either side. I have drastically reduced bringing it up as it seems to stress her even more about it. It’s really the only topic we have trouble discussing.
Having looked up the kind of articles we’re all familiar with about this subject, I’ve probably exhausted most of the potential causes (I’ll list them) but am therefore here for help.
Cause: asking too much Answer: in the period where the frequency was decreasing, i did ask once every couple of days if she was in the mood. Sometimes a little more creative than that, but getting rejected that often does discourage a man. I’ll now ask once every couple of weeks, hoping she’ll bring it up if the mood comes.
Cause: no meaningful connection with partner Answer: we manage to talk about sensitive or close-to-our-heart subjects regularly without dispute or a-sympathy. We talk about our days, plans and dreams
Cause: not finding enjoyment in sex Answer: I suppose I can’t guarantee this, however, she does initiate it sometimes and does so with a genuine playfulness and/or naughtiness.
Cause: stress Answer: work-related her job isn’t over demanding as I hear it, a healthy level of responsibility, she gets along well with her coworkers. On a personal level, despite the fact she’s aware of our intimacy issues, there’s no health issues in the familial vicinity, nor financial. Tasks are picked up equally around the house, ranging from laundry to dishes to food and cleaning.
Cause: no longer finding me attractive Answer: another one i can’t 100% guarantee, however, i stay in shape, haven’t changed much physically since we met, nor have I lost interest and neglect her emotionally as far as i can tell.
Im probably forgetting to mention things here but it’s 1am here, and came out of bed to write this as its keeping me from sleeping.
This is probably the first time I’ve even entertained the thought of what living alone would be like.
Any advice on how I can communicate my needs?
Looking forward to your insights. Happy to answer any and all questions.

2023.06.02 00:25 MrTyroneTheCat AITA For ditching my sister after moving with my sister out of state?

My sister, "Sam" (23 F), and I (25 M) moved away together from our home state to attend an out-of-state school. We lived in a two-bedroom apartment with her then boyfriend while studying and working part-time. Our different approaches to cleanliness caused tension, with Sam wanting to clean daily and me preferring to clean on my day off. Eventually, Sam's frustrations led to petty actions like throwing my belongings into my room and waking me up at night. I started staying in my room most of the time, doing everything there. Sam and her boyfriend broke up, leaving just the two of us in the apartment.
Around the same time, I met my current girlfriend, "Alex," and started spending more time with her. Alex eventually moved 30 minutes away, so I began sleeping over at her place. I was rarely in my apartment and only stayed there a few nights after being with Alex. Sam got a new boyfriend, "Jake," who moved in with us due to an emergency. Sam later moved back home temporarily to take care of our mom before her surgery, while Jake stayed in the apartment.
Now it's just Jake and me in the apartment, but I don't feel close to him and see him more as a surprise roommate since Sam isn't living there. Sam wasn't sure if she would return after our mom's surgery, and I feared I would be solely responsible for the rent. I talked to Alex about the situation, and she suggested I move in with her and her sister, who actually brought up the idea. We planned to find a house after their lease ended since I would graduate and had a good job lined up.
When I told Sam about my plans to move in with Alex, she became upset. She had planned to return for graduate school, and Jake was fine with her not paying rent due to her claiming disability. I explained that I wanted to be with Alex more and that the constant commuting was becoming difficult. I had also stated that I had brought it up several times prior to me moving out that I had plans to do so and was just waiting to have time to start doing so. Sam started ignoring my texts, told my family I abandoned her, and my parents were disappointed. Feeling bad about the situation, I sent Sam some money to help cover the upcoming month, but she ignored me and told my mom she wanted a brother, not my money. Now I wonder if I'm the asshole for leaving my sister to live with my girlfriend.

2023.06.02 00:24 Shkmstr How difficult is it for a hang DIY person to be able to plaster/concrete this wall to look similar to my house? (More info and photos in post)

I’m an electrician and moderately handy DIY guy. My new home is this gray color and smooth texture. The wall in-front of my house is this rough and bumpy block type material and I’d like it to be smooth like the home and at least a similar color to the home as well. How difficult is this to do myself and if it is, what is a ballpark cost for something like this. The wall is about 60 feet long and I would prefer to do it myself as I enjoy home projects and learning new things. However if it’s something that is likely east to mess up then i prefer to do it right and hire. Any and all advice is greatly appreciated.

2023.06.02 00:21 banhcuc AITA for not turning off the home AC when requested from an "older" roommate?

I live in a "student" housing with other students and we are all in our 20s.
For some reason, the landlord lets someone in his 60s rent a space temporarily because he is a family friend. He is a nice, older gentleman that keeps to himself other than littering his cigarettes' buds all over the front porch and had caught him smoking indoors which is considered "normal" in his country. This is already tolerable as I already told him to stop smoking indoors in which he complied.
Now, back to topic. Today is 31 degrees Celsius which is 87.8 Fahrenheit, with a heat warning and tomorrow will be the same. AC is on for obvious reasons and also the fact I live in the 3rd floor which get's really, really hot. He asked twice if we can turn off the AC and also complained to the landlord.
The landlord asked if we can turn off the AC which is ridiculous because without it the house is a sauna. This is getting really frustrating even though I know at his age he will be more sensitive to the weather. Anyways, I said no and left the home AC on, current temps still being within 22-23 degrees Celsius.
