2023.06.08 21:17 purplepicker Cucumber and a lime, anyone? Help, what scam is this?
My friend, call her Mel, is FDA and this happened yesterday:
At 10am a delivery from a big blue department store arrives for "James E." There s no last name and the contact phone number just rings and rings with no answer. So Mel checks all guest names as well as all arrival and check-out names. There is no James E. She calls the surrounding hotels and they also do not have a James E. nor anyone expecting a delivery.
Looking in the bag, Mel sees that the order was a single cucumber and a single lime. She puts them in the office fridge and goes about her day. Two hours later, another delivery for James E. from the same store. It's another cucumber and a lime. Two hours later, a third delivery for James E. Another cucumber and a lime. All from the same store, which by the way is not the nearest location of these big blue department stores to the hotel. Mel is perplexed and the delivery driver is just as confused.
What are we missing? What is the scam or the joke happening here?

| || |
No worries, I did the courtesy of checking the fire and smoke plume/air quality for Folkston and you are all good! The dogs are breathing far shittier air from being exposed to secondhand smoke than just the air around them. So, what is next on your “use sympathy for a non-existent situation to con people out of money” list? submitted by Beginning-Scar-5776 to crystalbrunnerscammer [link] [comments]

2023.06.08 20:58 NotJustGingerly Sure, you can have a lunch break, but…
You have to find time between customers to leave the register and go find someone to cover you. Doesn’t matter that A) state law dictates you get 30 minutes to eat after 5 hours (and no I’m not eating while I’m checking out customers and touching my food while handling products and cash!) B) some of the people who are supposed to come help checking out customers never help when it gets busy, or even angry for being asked to leave what they’re doing and C) other department managers only care about you doing tasks between customers (when it gets busy I am lucky to get a chance to go to the bathroom…) and they & their people take time to eat during the day. Not sure I covered it all. I feel like this kind of arrangement punishes me because it puts the burden on me to find someone to cover my “post” in an environment where breaks and, specifically, lunch breaks are not the norm. Sometimes I can fit in 10-15 minutes to choke down something and a co-worker can handle the line; other days everyone is crazy busy and I feel selfish stopping my work just to eat or there is no one to ask to cover my spot because of callouts, poor scheduling or unpredictable customer surges. I am trying to hang on because I am moving in the fall and don’t want to go get a different job for just a few months. I like the location and the shift (mother’s hours, no nights and weekends.) It is an independently owned business, I left working for big box stores because I hate the great divide between the invisible, non responsible corporates and the ever struggling suffering workforce who really make the gears of society turn. I like seeing the owners (who do make it a point to work at the store at least one day a week, if not more as they own 3 locations). But I am tired of being treated like a minion. I am the only cashier who works full time, all others are part time. Kids, mostly, who are also subject to the same on weekends when assigned 6+ hour long shifts and I am pretty sure they don’t know their rights are being violated. I find signs of their eating at the registers all the time. This is the first time I have ever worked somewhere where I didn’t get meal breaks and the “lack of meal break culture” comes from the owners and their small business casual environment preferences. My husband makes it a point to join me for lunch once a week and make sure I eat and tells me I should just take my breaks, worst thing they can do is tell me they aren’t paying me while at eat.

2023.06.08 20:57 ColumbiaPoop Things have went off the rails since the house fire...
So around 2 months ago, My boyfriend's mom's house caught on fire while we all were asleep, luckily I woke up and woke everyone else up and we were able to get out. Now the fire department did manage to put it out before it spread throughout the house but unfortunately the smoke damage was severe due to it being an electrical fire and it was deemed completely unlivable until it receives a lot of clean up and repair work, which will probably take over a year. My boyfriend's mom who has dementia, which has gotten severe enough to where she can not hold a conversation, as she forgets what was being discussed, and begins confabulating to make up for it. The fire of course made her symptoms much more severe but we didn't know just how bad it was going to get until here lately....
You see my boyfriend's dad has been letting her stay at his house. She has been staying there ever since the day after the fire, when he picked her up from the hospital ( She had a panic attack while the firefighters were putting out the fire and they thought it would be best to hospitalize her, treat her for smoke inhalation, and do some tests on her) But for the past few weeks she has started to believe that his house is her house, and that he's just some "annoying neighbor" (probably because he spends most of his time outside during the day, or out in the shed fixing things) whenever she refers to him now she no longer refers to him as John, which is his name or as "Jake's dad" But instead now refers to him as "That old man"... And it's not as an insult as my boyfriend intentionally believed but instead it's because she truly keeps forgetting who he is.... She has already called the law on him once already just a few days ago, telling them that she needed them to send an officer out, because she had a neighbor that kept trying to come into her house, and that she needed them to make him leave. Of course, not knowing the whole story the cops showed up with the intentions of making him leave, and he ended up having to prove he lived in his own house.
I should also add that me, and my boyfriend have been living in a fifth wheel camper parked in his dad's backyard. And since I was home at the time she called, I ended up getting a knock on the door from the cop asking to talk to me about who lived there, and I ended up having to explain the situation to the cops, who recommended that we move her into a nursing home. We both agreed that she would most definitely end up calling them again and reporting the same thing... The problem is, her son/my boyfriend is adamantly against it he absolutely refuses and believes that he can take care of her even though he has to work during the day and she's to the point to where she has to be watched almost all the time. I just want to know how to get him to understand that his dad and I are not able to care for her full time, nor is his dad healthy enough to continue being put through all of this stress, he has previously had a stroke before, and still has a lot of other health issues. As I'm writing this I can literally hear her freaking out on him again....
Is it wrong of me to want for her to be put into a care home for her own sake and everyone else's? His dad literally can't even go into his own house at all without her freaking out on him and accusing him of stealing food, or breaking in. She locks him out multiple times everyday, and tells him to get out multiple times everyday. I would just really appreciate any suggestions on what to do.

2023.06.08 20:54 thegooseisloose1982 I don't trust speed cameras in Minnesota because I don't trust law enforcement in Minnesota
This revolves around Minnesota Legislature authorizing study of speed cameras (https://kstp.com/kstp-news/top-news/mn-legislature-authorizes-study-of-speed-cameras/
I want to start out by saying that I hate the people who go 80+, who weave in and out of traffic just to go faster, who tailgate. I have driven in California, Arizona, Detroit and a lot of other states (~40) and I will say that the majority of Minnesota drivers aren't too bad with driving.
The problem is that I hate the speed cameras, but what it is underneath that hate is me being hurt. I am hurt that the legislature wants to check to make sure I am not breaking the law, when law enforcement doesn't appear to have any checks on its power. Let me talk about that.
I was ashamed of what I saw when a Minneapolis Police office Derek Chauvin keeled on the neck of George Floyd. I saw that video once, and I never need to see it again because I still remember seeing it.
I was ashamed when I saw Minnesota State Troopers attempt to arrest a CNN reporter (while he was broadcasting live).
I was ashamed when I saw law enforcement shoot Minneapolis residents on their porch (you know the video).
I was ashamed when I saw law enforcement mace a journalist on the ground even though he identified (and had clear badging) as a journalist.
I grew up in a small town in the suburbs of Minnesota and I never had to interact with the police (thankfully). I genuinely through of law enforcement as trying their best to do good. But these things have made me question everything.
How can I just trust law enforcement to use speed cameras without abusing speed cameras? Some people will say that well it will lower law enforcement budget. Bullshit. Law enforcement officers will still want the same budget which expands to catch more criminals because "crimes" are going up! But it is the speed cameras. I don't trust that law enforcement won't just set the maximum on the speed cameras to be 5 mph less than the posted speed limit and all of a sudden you get a ticket in the mail, and it won't just be one or two people it will be hundreds of people who have to call into an already exhausted government to fight this. All the while hearing, "well if you just didn't speed."
How about the one offs? Say someone is going 50 in a 55, then they slow down to 45 for no reason that you can see since you are behind them. Then they get down to 40. All the while other cars are passing. So you go to pass and they speed up to go 53, so you have to pass them at 60. Click, you just got a ticket!
I have lived in Arizona and while there they had speed cameras. It wasn't that I was doing something illegal, but I was always scared about them. I am in the technology field and I know how many times things go wrong. With speed cameras that "going wrong" can happen multiple times, and it is repeatable!
Here is the police report from the George Floyd murder. Do you honestly trust a word out of any Minnesota police departments lips? At this time, I certainly don't.
“Two officers arrived and located the suspect, a male believed to be in his 40s, in his car. He was ordered to step from his car. After he got out, he physically resisted officers. Officers were able to get the suspect into handcuffs and noted he appeared to be suffering medical distress. Officers called for an ambulance. He was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center by ambulance where he died a short time later.” - https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/04/20/how-first-statement-minneapolis-police-made-george-floyds-murder-seem-like-george-floyds-fault/
I can never trust Minnesota law enforcement until I know that everyone I just mentioned (attacking journalists and fellow citizens) is punished and charged for attacking unarmed journalists. The last state of the union that Governor Walz gave both sides of the aisle stood up when he thanked law enforcement. There isn't much checks and balances there.
So if these speed cameras keep me following the law (punishing those who try to stay in the speed limit, or are manipulated to increase the state coffers) what the hell is keeping law enforcement from following the law?
Rules for me, not for thee.

2023.06.08 20:52 andrea827 Eclipse Coming: Health Dept Preparing
Hi Food Safety Inspector here, I work in a county/city health depart located in a tourist town (population 10k) very rural area with a dense downtown hub of tourists and attractions (aka wine). We are in the path of totality for the April 8, 2024 total solar eclipse. We are anticipating anywhere from 60k-100k+ additional visitors that weekend + Monday (solar eclipse) into Tuesday. Treating it like our largest festival we have every year but anticipating much more.
We are working on FAQs from our general public as well as for our retail food establishments to help them prepare and go through the proper lines for permitting and educating on food safety.
General public are those we expect who may want to sell food on their large parcels of land, on a street corner, out of their home, etc. We anticipate some serious clowning chaos that weekend, oy. What questions would you expect to receive from your retail food establishments and general public in regards to food safety and such a large event like this? we have seen and heard the horror stories from past paths of totality.

2023.06.08 20:51 LichtMaschineri University won't allow films that make them look bad...but somehow it's impossible to make them look good??!
So this is dumb. Basically, I'm in the college film club of our university. Recently, a buddy of mine wanted to show off his movie at a film festival. This festival only allowed the showing with a confirmation by our college, as parts of the movie were filmed in there. The college direction basically said "We're very supportive and fine with it. But the movie can't make the university look bad" -not going into detail what they really mean.
Now, here's my problem:k Like my buddy, my movie (our next project) is held primarily on college grounds. I had no problems not-slandering the university...until I actually went location scouting. For context: Our college is split into two areas, with me being in the art department. The location scouting took mainly place in the technical/IT department. The reason why it's important is that college sadly plays an important part in the idea & might ensure potential funding.
Wherever you looked, something was broken: Exposed wires hanging from the ceiling. Broken escalators and lifts not fixed for months/years. Furniture from 50years ago (and looking the part), and random rooms full of just...trash. Hell, we even found a form of attic. Or, to be more precise: The door to the attic, which was half-open and dangling out parts of a rusty staircase, just about to fall some poor lad on the head one day.
Now, I'm not trying to be a rebel here. But for fuck's sake- this place makes itself look bad without any help! Even worse: The more I work the locations into the script, the more I get the urge to slip in jokes about it. Of course, I can hold these back, but the first thing is still very worrisome to me.
How would you solve the issue?

2023.06.08 20:42 Cute-Astronomer-420 Deciding between industrial and mechanical engineering.
Hello everyone. I’m a student in the life sciences that decided to transfer to engineering. My school has essentially given me a choice between mechanical and industrial engineering (they are in the same department), and I was wondering if I could get your thoughts on which major is better? I know the basics of each major but haven’t done any proper research yet. My passion lies in mathematics, physics, and problem solving. Potential income is also important for me. I am located in Toronto, Canada.

2023.06.08 20:41 Mista9000 Perfectly Safe Demons -Ch 14- Bruised and cheerful
Rosifo Girtwoud woke up feeling sore and exhausted. He slept well, but never as long as he’d have liked. He could hear his roommates moving around and getting ready for their days. Sitting up in bed, he stretched and took stock. His new job was physically demanding, but it was the best job he’d ever had. By a lot. He loved having his own room in a nice place, all thanks to his generous new salary! He could even afford to eat as much as he wanted, a luxury he’d not even dreamed was possible. Last night he ate three helpings of honey glazed pork at the pub! Still clumsy from sleep, Ros shrugged on a tunic and clean slacks, pausing for a second to appreciate the lordly quality of the garments. He still couldn’t believe he owned such nice things, and the Chief just gave it to him! Well, everyone got a few, but that didn’t make it any less special. Ros put on his belt as he went downstairs to the kitchen, where a few of his roommates were eating breakfast and the landlady was pulling some fresh buns out of the wood fired oven.
“Hey there’s the champ now!” called out Rikad, his housemate and co-worker.
“Heh, there are some perks to being the lightest guy on the squad!” Ros replied, referring to the agility drill he had won at work yesterday. Three days a week of training was by far the hardest part of the job, being trained by the Chief was like weathering a storm. Terrifying and dangerous, but something you could be proud of surviving. The other three days a week they worked were a holiday in comparison. Sitting on carts and standing by warehouses was easy.
Ros devoured his huge bowl of sweetened oats and then three buttered fresh buns. Pushing back from the long table with a satisfied sigh, he got up to leave for work with Rikad. The spring morning air was brisk, and they made sure to stay out of the way of loaded carts and riders that zipped by on the narrow cobblestone streets.
“What do you reckon the Chief will have us do today?” Rikad asked.
Ros snorted, “Quit embarrassing ourselves and pick up the pace?”
“Hah! That’s hardly a guess! I liked the knife throwing we did a few weeks ago, that was fun. I hope it’s not all runs and drills, I’m still aching from yesterday,” Rikad said.
“Yeah, I like combat drills. Other than when I have to spar with the Chief. He’s like a mountain that’s fast. I think the day I get a point on him, I’ll buy the whole team a beer!” Ros motioned a lunging jab as they walked.
“We’ll be too old to drink by then!” Rikad teased.
They were in for a typical training routine, a morning lecture on tactics and formations, some solo weapon drills, a short run, then a hearty lunch delivered from the nearby deli. Other days they just called a food cart into the yard with them, but Ros liked the deli lunches better. Also the novelty of someone else buying his lunches was thrilling. Ros assumed that this must be how pretty girls felt all the time. Maybe less sore and less yelled at. But maybe not.
The real highlight of the day was Ros got to see the owner of the whole company when he came out to observe their exercises. Ros hadn’t seen a real lord up close before he started at Pandemonium, and he thought it was one of the biggest perks. Mostly he looked like a tired doctor or shopkeeper, but Ros wasn’t disappointed. He had a nobility of his bearing, clarity in his eyes and an aura of authority. Even the Chief changed when he was around him! Seeing the him defer to anyone spoke volumes to their importance. Not only was he the lord of a whole company, he was also a mage! They were super rare even before the Church started purging all those heresies in their College of Magic, but now he wasn’t even sure there were any in the city!
“Agility drills are done! Imma talk to Mage Thippily, so you lot do some king of the hill sparring; Sword ‘n board! Ros and Kedril start!” boomed Chief of Security Stanisk.
Ros staggered exhaustedly to the equipment racks to get an arming jacket, leather helm, training sword and shield.
“Mage Thippliy is watching,” he whispered reverentially to himself as he geared up.
“Mind your tone or he’ll turn you into a turnip!” called Rikad.
Kedril grinned, “Hah, He’ll turn you into a turnip, Rik. He’ll just look at Ros and see his work is already done!”
Ros used to despise Kedril. He embodied everything Ros had yearned to become: handsome, confident, affluent, and sharp-witted. The team's dynamic was confrontational, rife with competition; they raced, fought, and scored against one another all day, three days a week. It had taken Ros a while to grasp that they were, in fact, a team. Kedril, infuriatingly attractive, devoted time to helping Ros in a few drills last week and offered valuable advice. So, albeit begrudgingly, Ros began to admire him. Kedril was older by a few years, substantially larger, and appeared to be one of the few who already had some training in arms. The prospect of sparring with him didn’t excite Ros.
Fresh from drills and immediately thrown into sparring, sweat trickled into Ros's eyes. The sting impaired his vision. He repeated to himself, 'Elbows in, shield up, tip forward, hips back,’ partially to fix his stance, partially to focus. Kedril was typically in better shape than him, but now appeared even more worn out. His guard was lax and messy, creating a gaping opening. Ros seized the opportunity and struck with a swift, precise jab. In the fleeting instant the jab took, Kedril's shield snapped into position, and his tip dealt a solid blow to Ros's ribs just beneath his sword arm. It was a feint - a brilliantly executed display of weakness where he was most prepared, exactly the tactic Stanisk had explained yesterday.
“Mashed Turnip!” Kedril shouted to the cheers of the others.
“Ros! You lost because your stance is awful! Keep lower! Coiled spring, lad!” the Chief shouted from across the yard.
Ros raised his hands over his head to cede the point and sat at the end of the bench. He hated losing, but he had expected to lose. He gratefully grabbed a cup of water and watched Kedril make short work of a few more challengers. It seemed like they were picking on him, but Ros was coming to understand they were also bonding with him, and these might be the closest friends he’d ever had. Not that it was a high bar, and he didn’t like all of them, but they had his back, and that meant a lot. Finally Jourgun, the biggest lad on the team, tore into Kedril with so much energy and fury that no amount of clever tactics could stop him. Even though he knew these were his friends, seeing Kedril getting bashed in the face with a shield was almost as good as seeing a real mage!
One thing Ros appreciated about training days was that they were shorter. After the sparring, Stanisk pulled aside Kedril and Jourgun for additional work, and dismissed the rest of the men. Ros trailed behind some of his newfound friends to a peculiar place where one would sit, fully naked, in a steam-filled room, all for two glucks.
“This is a sex thing, right?” Ros asked Rikad cautiously.
“What?! Light, no! It’s to relax and heal," Rikad explained. "They place herbs on hot rocks, we sit there, sweat, and breathe in the steam. It’s excellent, you’ll love it!”
“Sounds like we’re all naked and sweaty, though?” Ros remained convinced this was some intimate activity he wasn’t fully grasping. Rikad rolled his eyes and even paid Ros’s entry fee.
Inside the dim, tiled room was surprisingly comfortable. The steam smelled slightly of herbs and medicine, and it was so thick he couldn’t even see the far wall. A quick survey of the others revealed they were just as covered in bruises as he was, which gave Ros a fresh sense of camaraderie. They towelled off, dressed, drank some cold water, and left the strange business without any hint of the carnal encounter Ros had suspected. Despite his lingering confusion about the whole place, Ros liked it and wanted to come back. He appreciated his squadmates not making a single steamed turnip joke. He was hoping that didn’t stick as a nickname, he felt it didn’t remotely suit him.
After the steam, their muscles relaxed and the day's tension eased away. Ros and Rikad were starving. It had been hours since lunch, so they headed to a nearby tavern for drinks and dinner. Being able to simply enjoy food and drink without concern for the price was an intoxicatingly fresh experience. In fact, Ros enjoyed this newfound freedom even more than the meal itself.
After a huge dinner and a few beers Ros paused, and opened up a little.
"Did you know this is the pub where I talked the Chief into hiring me?"
"Really? To be honest, I've always wondered about that. No offence, but you're a lot smaller than the rest of us." Rikad pushed away his empty plate, taking a long drink of his beer.
"Yeah, I saw the Chief in here, dressed like a shining champion, buying ladies drinks and rounds for the whole bar. He was so confident and kind and relaxed. But also obviously dangerous. I’d never seen anyone like him!" Ros gestured to the tavern maid for a refill. "I must have been a sight. My clothes were more patch than original cloth, I was so skinny you could've counted my ribs through a sweater. Not that I had sweater money!" Ros reflected on the lean muscle he'd gained in recent months with inward satisfaction.
"Did the Chief take you for a beggar?"
Ros bristled at the suggestion. "Hell no! I've never begged in my life, I've always earned my keep!" his brief flare of indignation faded immediately. "No, he thought I was a refugee, from some starving backwater. Of course, I corrected him—after he bought me dinner!"
"Hah! The proper sequence," Rikad agreed, laughing.
"Anyway, he asked about my plans. I told him I was waiting till I was eighteen to join the army and serve the Emperor."
"You've certainly filled out since I met you, but I'm not sure you'd pass the army physical even now," Rikad cautiously speculated.
"The Chief was blunter about it. 'Yer so scrawny, a necromancer would find ya offputting, the army ain't gonna waste rations on ya.'" Ros imitated Stanisk’s gruff rural northerner accent.
"Hah! That sounds about right. Which makes your wearing company purple less clear than ever!" Rikad replied.
"Well, he asked if I knew my way around the city. I said I've tread every cobblestone here, so he offered me a job running letters and picking up parcels. Better work than sweeping alleys for a half-gluck and stale bread. I figured a fancy man like him would pay alright."
The waitress finally brought the next round, and Ros paused to take a long drink. Setting his mug down, he continued. "I walked into the Chief's office, and there he was behind that tiny desk with his book and quill. He looked like a cave troll trying to be a librarian. But I wasn't gonna laugh—it was still the Chief. He said, 'We don’t got a lot for now but I’ll give you a list in the morning, and see that it gets done.' I said ain’t fancy, I don’t know how to read! He didn't lose his cool. He simply nodded and said, 'Alright, just report to me in the morning, and we’ll get you started.' Oh, and he warned me never to speak to the Mage unless spoken to, which suited me fine."
Ros took another drink of his beer, wiped his mouth with the back of his hand, and continued. "I was hoping for five gee a day. I’d probably have done it for a lone gluck, to be honest. So imagine my shock when he apologised that he could only offer me twenty glucks a day!"
"Where were you living, that five would've been enough?" Rikad asked, curious.
Ros, slightly flushed from the beer, leaned forward. "Under a bloody hedge!" He burst into laughter at his own expense.
"That's rough man," Rikad commented, shaking his head.
Ros nodded. "It was, but it's behind me now. After a month or so of running errands, the Chief finally let me join the crew he was training. That's how I ended up a part of the elite guard of a learned lord mage."
Rikad, his face ruddy, pointed his finger at Ros’s chest. "It’s your attitude! You always train the hardest. It’s changed the whole team's tone."
Ros nodded again, serious. "I gotta! The fifteen hundred gee I make every month now is probably more than I did in the last decade. Total! I bet we make as much as a knight commander does leading a thousand soldiers!"
Rikad looked at him suspiciously. "Wait, a decade? Aren't you still a teenager?"
Ros shrugged. "It's been a long, hard time. Anyway, I know I promised to go to see that folk band with you tonight, but I'm spent. I think I might call it an early night." He finished the beer in two long gulps and stood up.
"I get it. Besides, tomorrow's Sunday. We can finally sleep in!" Rikad pointed out.
Ros woke to a frantic pounding on his bedroom door. It was still dark out.
“Go away! Keep it down! You’ll wake the whole house!” Ros grumbled, mostly asleep.
“Come on man! Emergency meeting at the training yard. We gotta go now!” Rikad hoarsely whispered.
“Ah, that’s not good!” Ros threw on some clothes and headed out the door with his friend.
“Think it has something to do with what Kedril and Jourgun were doing after work?” Ros asked.
“Maybe? That was hours and hours ago, and those guys are great, and they were with the Chief,” Rikad countered.
They jogged through the mostly empty streets. The moons were behind clouds, and the dew made the cobblestones slick. The faint flickering of their leviathan oil lamp cast strange shadows in the foggy night. The city felt on edge, too many people on the streets in the middle of the night, whispering. A few times Ros thought he heard something about thunder and demons, which did nothing to calm his growing panic.
“What if something happened to Mage Thippily? Are we all unemployed now?” Ros asked, knowing Rikad knew as much as he did.
“What is the business we guard? Something to do with magically formed super secret goods that no one was allowed to talk about. I think? I should have asked,” Rikad lamented.
Finally they made it to the yard, and Kedril was standing at the gate, torch held aloft.
“Good lads! Go into the workshop and take a seat. The Chief has some tea on.” Kedril’s voice was as calm and steady as ever, but his face was pale and drawn, and his eyes never focused on them, just scanned the night intently.
“Inside? Are you sure?” Ros had never gone inside; that was the single biggest rule.
Kedril just nodded. Ros and Rikad looked at each other for courage and moved forward. The big yard door to the workshop opened a crack, and warm light was spilling out. Rikad motioned Ros to go first, and he poked his head in, fully expecting to lose it.
“Oy, is that Ros? Git your scrawny ass in here,” Chief Stanisk rumbled.
The two men felt like flies exploring a web, but inside was surprisingly normal. Five other guards were already there, and the room was a lot like any other workshop. It had planked floors, shelves and tables and one corner was even converted into a kitchen. There were a few simple stools set up, and two incredibly luxurious loungers. Like everyone else, Ros and Rikad took a stool. The Chief gestured to a kettle and mugs for the tea, but no one seemed interested.
“What’s happening, is everyone okay?” Ros finally asked.
“Short answer is yes, for now.” Stanisk said calmly. “We’ll give the other lads a few minutes to get here, then I’ll explain.”
“Holy light, sir! You aren’t wearing your armour!” This unsettled Ros more than anything he’d seen all night, it was like seeing a bear shaved. Chief was just sitting there in trousers and a shirt, sipping tea. He’d never seen the Chief without armour.
“Needs cleaned,” he answered cryptically.
Follow up questions were interrupted by the rest of the men arriving, followed by Kedril and then Jourgun, who must have been watching the far gate.
“Alright, gather round, at ease.” Stanisk started. He looked relaxed which was probably a good sign.
“You lot were hired to protect the interests of our operations. There was an attempt on Mage Thippliy’s life tonight, at his meeting. Security Specialists Kedril and Jourgun did excellent work, and I have full confidence in all of your growing abilities. Our concern is there will be additional attempts."
There was a murmur of apprehension. The mage was the company. Without him there was nothing to guard. No one here wanted to lose their jobs, but they had been suspicious from the start. The pay didn’t match the work.
Stanisk paused as Mage Thipply and the elv, that had only been speculated to exist, came down the ladder from the loft. The mage was dressed like normal, in his brown pants and a white shirt, frameless glasses and a short well maintained beard streaked with grey. The elv was wearing an oversized sweater and long stockings. It had the effect of making her upper body look human, but with the long spindly legs of a shore bird. Her huge nocturnal eyes stared at them all unblinkingly, and her long narrow fingers with too many segments wrapped around a mug of tea. Ros was both intimidated and repulsed. It was like a bird or an insect pretending to be a person, but with eyes that had intelligence and cruelty.
“Ah! Um, thank you all for coming!” The mage was directly addressing them, Ros grinned despite his fears and worries. “There have been events over the last week or so that have culminated tonight, and I no longer think that our operation in Jagged Cove is viable.” The mage saw the reaction of the crowd turn sharply negative. He hastily added, “Of course I’m not closing up shop, we’re just moving to another location. A location outside of the capital region, and I’d like you all to join us.”
Ros sighed and leaned back in relief. This wasn’t bad news at all. He’d gladly move to the bottom of the sea for the Mage. He could feel his pulse returning to normal, as other people started asking questions.
“What? I can’t leave the city, I got a wife and kids!” a guard named Theros said.
“Oh, I just started dating a baker's apprentice, is there an option to stay?” Jourgun asked.
The elv stood up, and addressed the room with an icy indifference. “This is not a negotiation. There is a ship that is leaving in about six hours. If you are on it, you will remain employed. We have also made considerations for your families. They are welcome on the ship, and you can find new homes in the town we relocate to.” She subtly nodded to the Chief before continuing. “Chief Stanisk values your skills so highly that he convinced the board of directors to offer each of you a five year contract. The contract will have some additional employment conditions, but there will be a 5000 glindi signing bonus. Follow Chief Stanisk’s instructions to get on the boat, and we’ll see you there. Or not.”
She returned to the ornate chair, and the room erupted into chaos.
“Holy light! That’s so much!”
“I’d be insane not to sign!”
“Where are we even going?”
Ros grinned from ear to ear, what’s to decide? This was the best possible outcome! Free money to see the world! Packing his bags would take no time, and he could carry everything that mattered in one trip.
Stanisk took command of the room, “You with young ‘uns, we got the company wagons for you waiting, get a move on. I’ll take the mage’s personal wagon and do a loop to Kedril’s, Eowin’s and Klive’s. The rest of you, leg it! Meet back here in three hours and tell anyone what asks, that you took a job out of the city. Be vague! Come on, pick up the pace you helpless kittens!"

2023.06.08 20:31 frauenarzZzt After an exhaustive investigation that took at least the past hour, our team uncovered the real reason behind the MBTA's systemic failures, safety violations, and mismanagement at the T.
In the Winter of 2015, Boston experienced our highest snowfall totals in history, from January through February the city received several walloping storms which closed the MBTA for over a day at a time on multiple occasions.
For many commuters in Boston, this was the beginning of the rapid downfall of the MBTA. We can point to some other signs such as the underfunding of public transit, failure to have forward-thinking transit-minded policy from the Baker administration, and the backlog of maintenance efforts required, but many people point to this time period as the beginning of our beloved T's downfall. While it's nearly impossible to note all of the T's quirky safety incidents, here are a few notable ones:
2015: A runaway train leaves Braintree
and travels over five miles without an operator.
In 2016, the MBTA raised fares again. They continued to offer cost-effective transportation but many commuters took safety into their own hands, as that year a commuter rail train was severely damaged
in a collision with a pole at South Station and still attempted to make a trip to/from Worcester before being pulled from service mid-commute with passengers on board. --- Think about the audacity of taking a knowingly-damaged vehicle into service, and just who might do something like that.
In 2017, a "sharp increase" in deaths
occurred, with 22 people losing their lives on the MBTA system in their most recent fiscal year. Trains split apart mid-journey
, and it was reported that the MBTA had the most derailments in the United States
. What other transportation authorities could make passengers fear for their lives, like the vehicles they're on aren't safe?
In 2018, the trend of derailments continued as the Green Line derailed 9 days into the new year, but as bus and subway fatalities stabilized, commuter rail trespass fatalities continued to increase.
In 2019, the now-infamous JFK/UMass Red Line derailment
happened, damaging a switch box that to this day has not been fully fixed, and the Red Line was crippled for weeks. Three days prior the Green Line derailed at Kenmore, injuring 10, and less than two weeks later the Green Line derailed again. This was a crisis. How could a transportation system have this many
Almost fortunately for the MBTA, 2020 marked the global pandemic which decreased ridership on the T and reduced safety violations. 2021 saw train-on-train collisions
on the Green Line, infrastructure problems such as the Back Bay escalator malfunction, and further train derailments (a classic).
In 2022, things got so bad that the Federal Transportation Administration (a division of the U.S. Department of Transportation) needed to step in with an oversight role. Even so, brakes and batteries on the new Orange Line trains failed. An Orange Line train caught fire
which resulted in one passenger jumping off a bridge
and swimming to shore. The situation became so untenable that the T had to shut down service on the entire orange line in August.
In consideration of all of this, we have one question to ask: How did it get this bad?
There can be only one answer. The answer comes from within our fine city, and lies within another organization shut down by another branch of the U.S. Department of Transportation. In 2014, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration ordered Fung Wah Bus Transportation Inc
to cease operations. Fung Wah Bus was a
way to get from Boston to NYC for an affordable price. However, with that came numerous and amazing safety incidents of their own, such as buses catching fire, buses 'derailing' from the highway and flipping over, and Massachusetts inspectors eventually found 'multiple structural cracks' in various parts of buses. All of this sounds incredibly similar to safety incidents on the MBTA, and given the timeline of events and the shuttering of Fung Wah (RIP, we truly loved ye) followed by the collapse of the MBTA, we can only conclude that correlation and causality are the same thing. Therefore, it's evident that former Massachusetts Governor and world's most cringe Blink-182 fan Charlie Baker outsourced control of the MBTA to Fung Wah Bus Transportation in a desperate cost-saving measure. Now we are at a crossroads, and it seems that the only way to save our beloved T is to bring back extremely cheap and life-threatening bus service from Boston to NYC.

2023.06.08 20:31 iriskitt I became the president of a really messed up, small, employee-run grocers union by chance. Contract bargaining is approaching. I have no experience. Need help!
PLEASE HELP- I know the following is long, but if you have the time and any experience that can help, SOLIDARITY NEEDED!
I am a minimum wage deli employee and a struggling parent living paycheck to paycheck in rural California, where I moved after covid wrecked my life as I knew it. In April, I became the president of our union.
Our union board consists of 3 positions: President, Vice President, and Secretary-Treasurer. Myself and the Sec-Treas ran unopposed at the same time as a result of the past President quitting the company and resigning, and the Sec-Treas stepping down in turn. When we ran, it was with idealistic hopes, and zero knowledge of the can of worms we were opening.
"The Union" serves only the chain of small grocery stores that I work for- which I'll call "The Company".
The Company has made their business model on grocery stores in small, rural areas where job options are limited. Employees end up accepting extremely low wages and poor working conditions in exchange for a job close to their homes.
In the 70s and 80s, more store chains were a part of the union, but they went out of business, leaving only The Company included in the union. My understanding was during those prior decades before unions were gutted by federal legislation, it was a pretty good union.
Over time, The Company has found ways to largely control the union.
Unhappy employees with terrible work conditions and pay have formed a terrible impression of the union- the general belief is the union is "fake" or a joke and just something to take money from their checks. So, participation is low and they struggle to fill Union Rep and Board positions.
As a result The Company is actively involved in recruiting reps/board members, and recruiting these loyal employees willing to go the extra mile has seemingly worked out in their favor. It seems like the past board members have not held ground, and have ceded valuable rights to company pressure.
Past bargain negotiations have only handed things away to The Company. Benefits that I know have been taken away in recent contract negotiations include PTO for part-timers, and bonuses for non-management employees (store and department managers still receive profit-based bonuses). We have no record and no idea of what these things may have been ceded in exchange for.
At this point, all that union due are being spent on are Christmas parties, 3 $100 "Employee-appreciation lunches", and monthly "birthday parties" of $35/store with cookies or cakes for all employees. This is IF the union rep has been able to make these things happen. We strongly feel these are all things the company should be paying for, but the union has done it historically and the parties are apparently super popular in the stores that actually have them.
When we took on this huge responsibility, it was in hopes we could make some noticeable change that will benefit our deeply struggling coworkers.
However, since taking over I have found myself in a bureaucratic nightmare- issues with the bank, unpaid invoices, messy accounting, an unreconciled bank account, and the like. I do have a history as a bookkeeper, so it's doable, but nightmarishly time consuming and not at all in line with the main goal of negotiating a more favorable contract.
Updated Contract is due 7/31/23, rapidly approaching. Our meeting with The Company (the owners) is June 15.
Per the 1975 union constitution, the President holds the sole bargaining power with the employer.
We have held a meeting with the union reps, and gathered their feedback on things they'd like to see change.
Unilateral feedback is that NONE of the 14 stores has a sufficient breakroom (all have been jerry-rigged from closets, rafter storage, warehouse, or safe room, lacking AC, privacy, on-camera, in customer area, no filtered water-dispenser, etc. etc). Not sure if this is an issue for contract negotiation, or some other route?
The contact items we are looking to improve are,
(1) Safety- currently all that's in this section is that safety rules be posted and the store have ONE first-aid kit always accessible. Mind you, these are big grocery stores with many departments- not always reasonable to run across the store to a first aid kit when an employee is bleeding. At our store alone there have been repeated, repeated injuries from many of the same hazards that have gone unaddressed. Currently there is a company policy that store managers must complete a monthly safety check and keep these noted in a binder (I've been told this is also state law, but have been unable to find this info). We want to add this process to our contract, including requirements to address these hazards, so we have some leverage when the manager fails to do so.
(2) 15 minute breaks. We are currently only allotted 10 minute breaks, and this is way too short for cashiers to go to the bathroom and also rest. Many California grocery stores have 15 minute breaks so we think this should be reasonable.
(3) Clock-in/Out grace periods. This has been an issue for our employees, and there have been incidents where the company has chosen to terminate employments for being <5min late- only in certain incidences where they wanted to fire the employee anyway and needed a reason. Other employees consistently get away with it.
(4) Bonuses for non-management- this is something we lost, and it would be amazing to get back but feels like such a huge item that was given away, and it seems almost impossible they'll ever give back. Any advice for trying for this one would be extremely welcome.
Wage negotiation is a separate event which will happen in August.
We have ideas for what we want, but have been told the owners we will be meeting with will come prepared with the lawyer-prepared contract they want, try to take everything they can, intimidate, and cede nothing.
I have zero experience with bargaining, and am not sure even what format my proposed changes should be in.
I was willing to spend emergency funds on contract advise, so I reached out to three law firms for advice, but received no response.
I am massively in need of help, any info or advice would be deeply appreciated.

2023.06.08 20:21 VideoGameChronology Security Breach Is Likely Later Than We Think
Currently making my FNAF Timeline but I haven't been using a lot of years or times of events mainly because we don't know certain times and also because everything after UCN complicates the timeline, a lot, and a lot of that is because of the FF books. But I think I figured out the earliest possible time everything occurs and the correct order of when everything from UCN onwards happens.
In The Man in Room 1280, we know he wasn't there for longer than 10 years as Heracles Hospital only existed the last 10 years but we know he was there more than 1 year after FFPS. This means TMIR1280 can be anywhere from 2025 to 2033. After this story, the agony of Andrew infects tons of animatronics and toys. This includes Fetch, Ella, Plushtrap Chaser, and Foxy from Steo Closer. This means all 4 of those stories must be AFTER The Man In Room 1280 but when? Also, this story is in Fall.
Well, Fetch is our key here. Greg is 14 in this story and has never heard of Freddy's and he's been in this town since 1st grade with the Freddy's there already closed down. This means, at the very least, the place has been closed for 7 years. This isn't some old pizzeria though, it's one that opened after TMIR1280 as Fetch is there infected by Andrew meaning this story, at earliest, happens in 2032, and that's assuming these Freddy's locations lasted less than a year. The Ultimate Guide claims Fetch has in Freddy's for at least 10 years, so, I'm gonna say Freddy's was opened for 3 years after TMIR1280 and stayed shut the next 7 when Greg arrived. That would place Fetch, at earliest, in 2035 and, at most, in 2043. This story also takes place from November to January.
But it gets funner. In Fetch, we meet Jake McNally who some think is Jake from The Real Jake who becomes apart of the Stitchwraith. If this is true then Jake was 4 in Fetch and he's 9 in The Real Jake meaning 5 years have passed making the story take place in 2040 at the earliest and 2048 at the latest. This story is in Summer
Then there's the epilogues where Larson meets with Margie, the woman looking after Jake. Margie has been here for just over 3 years, in The Real Jake, Margoe was there for 3 years implying that the epilogues seem to take place the same year that The Real Jake ends. Meaning the Stitchwraith Stingers begin in 2040 at the earliest and 2048 at the latest. This means that the majority if the Stitchline must occur over the course of 2025 to 2040 or 2033-2048, meaning 15 years.
The rest of the stories are a little more ambiguous with time. The ball put has 30 years of Eleanor's victims within it and the earliest possible date of the Epilogues in 2040 meaning the earliest year Eleanor started her murders was 2010. The latest is 2048 meaning she would've started her murders in 2018, either way, Eleanor existed prior to FNAF 3 which makes sense as stories as Blackbird is revealed to be connected to Eleanor which is a story where the main characters remember Freddy's existed, not a new version of Freddy's like in Fetch, but the older version, likely 1993. Sam and Nole were kids when they went to Freddy's, now they're in college, so significant time has passed, a 17 year gap isn't impossible, so Bkackbird could be in 2010. Blackbird is also in Spring.
According the Graphic Novel, Into the Pit is in 2020.
To Be Beautiful takes place a week before the events of the first Stitchwarith Stinger, so 2040-2048. This story is also confirmed to happen in Winter.
Count the Ways is likely after the chain closes as Funtime Freddy in that story likely comes from the Circus Baby's in Dance with Me that is likely after Fazbear Entertainment started up meaning anywhere between 2025-2028 at the earliest is when Dance with Me happens, at the latest it's 2033-2036. This story is in Fall. Count the Ways must have Funtime Freddy in the scrapyard for ages, meaning the story probably happens around the time of Fetch where teens would remember Freddy's or Baby's. So, 2035 to 2040 or 2043 to 2048. This story happens in late December.
Stinger #2 seems to happen very soon after Out of Stock as I doubt the Plushtrap Chaser would just be sitting there destroyed for years until the epilogues meaning 2040-2048. The story is stated to be in late October.
1:35 AM has Phineas Taggart looking for Ella's energy telling us he already started his agony experiments and by the time of Stinger #3 he has Ella, so it has to be before that. Story is in Spring.
Step Closer's time period relative to the epilogues is unconfirmed but seeing how Freddy's is open at this time and by Fetch it's closed, it seems to be before Fetch, likely in the same time period as Dance with Me. Happens in August or September because of Homecoming.
Hide-And-Seek is the same as Step Closer, it's unclear the timeline but we know Freddy's is open, so likely in the same time period as Step Closer and Dance with Me. Story in Spring.
So, here's how the Timeline might be assuming the earliest years are correct.
Spring 2010: Blackbird
Summer 2020: Into the Pit
Fall 2025: The Man In Room 1280
August/Septmeber 2026: Step Closer
Fall 2026: Dance with Me
Spring 2027: Hide-and-Seek
November 2035-January 2036: Fetch
December 2036: Count the Ways
Spring 2040: 1:35 AM
Summer 2040: The Real Jake
Stitchwaith Stinger 3 and 4
October 2040: Out of Stock (I'm assuming that the beginning of Stinger 2 is a flashback since of it isn't, that would imply that Larson waited months to talk to Margie after saying he'd take the case)
Winter 2040: To Be Beautiful
2041: The Rest of The Stingers Happen After
So, that's it huh? Most of the stories happen after FFPS and 15 years after TMIR1280 is when stuff from Help Wanted onwards happens. Well, there's still one problem.
Help Wanted heavily implies that this FE's first attempt to rebrand after FFPS, they hire a rogue indie dev to exclusively make games on the events that were "claimed" to happen up to 2023 and those are the only events they're trying to hide. This can't be after the Frights stories as by the end of the story it seems most people have forgotten about the stuff that happened back in the 80s as all that happened over half a century ago.
So, if Help Wanted is what started up the new FE then TMIR1280 must be after that as we see people working in the distribution center meaning it's operational. So, ignoring the Frights, when is the earliest that Help Wanted could happen?
Well, assuming that the company started right after FFPS burned to the ground and assuming Steve releases the FNAF games at the same rate Scott did which is likely as the third game gets finished after Velntine's day just like FNAF 3 in real life, that would mean the 3 indie games are finished by March of 2025, a decade after Scott finished his trilogy. Now, let's say that soon after they have the VR company start production of the game after that and that the game Help Wanted happens when the game released IRL then it would be May of 2026 when that happens. Then, directly after that FE starts back up which is when TMIR1280 takes place, a couple months later in Fall of 2026. This would place the ending of the Stitchline in 2042 at the earliest, essentially moving all the years I said earlier up by one.
Okay, so it's after Help Wanted and 15 years later is when the Stitchline ends and Tales begins, perfect. However, one of Special Delivery's unreleased emails tell us that in AR, Vanessa is 23. You have to at least 18 to be a beta tester, so, at the latest, AR has to be in 2031 which would place it 5 years before Fetch. Now, time does pass between AR and a Security Breach as we know the CDs are at least a year before the game starts as implied by GGY. However, over a decade and a half passing between them (as Security Breach can only happen in 2035, 2046, 2057, etc as shown by the calendars) is nuts, especially as that would make Vanessa 37 which I find unlikely.
This is simply impossible, the other option is that Security Breach happens during Frights which wouldn't make much sense with how few people seem familiar with Freddy's, you'd think someone would mention the Pizzaplex. It's also important to point out that Scott said Frights would fill in the blanks of the past while the games would go to the future. Basically, all the games after UCN need to be AFTER Frights.
This isn't THAT big of a problem considering that some people including Larson remembers Freddy's and the murders, so it's possible that Steve has heard of them as well.
So, going back to the original years I suggested, the minimum years, the Help Wanted story probably happens in 2042-2043 with Help Wanted the game taking place in May of 2044. Assuming Curse of Dreadbear is canon and that the DLC releases the same time both IRL and in continuity like seems to be the case with FNAF 1-3 then that happens in October of 2044. If we're still taking things literally then December of 2044 is when FE starts building the Pizzaplex as seen in the Christmas Update. This means that Security Breach, at the earliest, is in 2052 meaning 2047 is the latest the place opens.
This would mean Submechaphobia, Cleithrophobia, Under Cinstruction, HAPPS, and Pressure likely all happen in 2047. GGY happens less than 4 years into the Pizzaplex's lifespan meaning it takes place in 2050 or 2051 meaning that Vanessa likely didn't get hired as a guard until 2051. Assuming she was only 18 in VR, she would be 23 in 2049 which would be when AR takes place meaning in Security Breach she'd be 26 which is reasonable. AR being in 2049 makes the start of the therapy tapes in 2050 or 2051 and I think a year or 2 is enough time for Vanessa to get closer with Luis and Luis to switch from IT to Marketing Department.
During that from when Vanessa was hired to when Security Breach takes place would likely be when Bobbiedots happens, where the STAFF meeting resulting in the death of employees happens, and the replacement of the employees with STAFF Bots.
So, that's what I think, majority of the Frights take place from 2025 to 2041 with the all three indie games being made by Spring of 2043, Help Wanted happening in Spring of 2044, the Pizzaplex starts construction in December of that year, The Epilogues happen in 2046, The Pizzaplex opens in 2047, Several Talea Stories Happen In 2047, AR happens in 2049, GGY happens in 2050 or 2051, Vanessa becomes Security in 2051, and Security Breach happens in 2052.

2023.06.08 20:18 bureau-of-land Beating the Summer Heat : July 6 - July 23 : Tokyo / Gifu / Hokkaido Itinerary
My girlfriend and I are traveling to Japan for the first time this summer for 17 days. We are aware that July is a hot and humid month and are attempting to mitigate that with some specific destinations. Both of us are less interested in the cities in Japan and more interested in relatively rural areas.
Theoretically Takayama and Hokkaido will be relatively cool compared to the major cities (?)
We prefer to have our days relatively flexible and plan maybe one or two activities for the whole day, rather than trying to cram a lot in. We are flying from Toyama to Hokkaido and then Hokkaido to Tokyo.
The general itinerary is: - July 6-7: Tokyo
- Julu 7-11: Takayama/Kanazawa
- July 11-20: Hokkaido (we are renting a car)
- July 20-23: Tokyo
We are renting a car on Hokkaido and we may try to sleep in the car once or twice- for both convenience and cheapness :)
Here is a detailed itinerary (the locations in parenthesis is where we would be sleeping):
- July 6 (Tokyo):
- Arrive in Tokyo (Haneda) in the evening
- Get bearings, eat and sleep near Shinkansen station
- July 7 (Takayama):
- Take Shinkansen to Nagoya
- stop at Tokomane (via subway)
- continue on to Takayama in Gifu
- July 8 (Takayama):
- Explore Takayama (morning market, etc)
- July 9 (Takayama):
- I would really like to go to the Kiso Valley, but the transit options for getting there are not very appealing...
- Alternatively, head to Chubu-Sangaku National Park for the day via bus
- July 10 (Kanazawa):
- Head towards Kanazawa via Shirakawa-go
- Kanazawa Castle
- Kanazawa garden
- July 11: (Hokkaido/Noboribetsu):
- Train to Toyama
- Fly to Chitose airport on Hokkaido
- Secure rental car
- July 12 (Hokkaido/Noboribetsu):
- Spend time at the hot springs and Shikotsu Toya
- July 13 (Hokkaido/Hakodate):
- Lake Toya
- Hang out in Hakodate*
- July 14 (Hokkaido/Sapporo):
- Drive to Otaru for the day
- Continue on to Sapporo
- July 15 (Hokkaido/Sapporo):
- Sights near Sapporo (brewery, etc)
- July 16 (Hokkaido/Furano/Biei):
- Lavendar Farm/Farm Tomito
- July 17 (Hokkaido/Asahikawa):
- Not sure yet...
- We might not stay in Asahikawa and continue on to Daisatsuzan this evening.
- July 18 (Hokkaido/Daisetsuzan National Park):
- July 19 (Hokkaido/Daisetsuzan National Park):
- July 20 (Hokkaido/Sapporo):
- Drive back to Sapporo
- Sapporo Art Park
- Other Sapporo stuff (Historical Village)
- July 21 (Tokyo):
- Fly back to Tokyo
- Various Tokyo activities (Tokyo Museum, Akihabara)
- July 22 (Tokyo):
- Do some Tokyo stuff (souvenirs etc)
- July 23 (Departing):
- Fly back to US (from Haneda)
Few things I am unsure about:
- Are we going too fast when we first arrive?
- Does it makes sense to drive all the way down to Hakodate from Noboribetsu? it would add significant travel time that could be spent elsewhere...
Would love any and all feedback! thanks!
