2023.05.28 06:06 gasolinedrinks Help! Made a huge mistake..
Feeling horrendous about myself at this moment, tried to sell a 230 gift card online for 200 and I showed gift card number. Pin is not scratched off, fully intact. A woman warned me that this was risky so I deleted the post. Somehow, in 3 hours, the amount has been drained and gift card balance says 0. I called Lulu in a panic and they tried to assure me that it is likely a bot guessing pin in online order, and GEC tomorrow morning should be able to cancel the order. My concern is that someone went in store and did this.. apparently you don’t need pin in store? How is this system ok? I tried to gain the public’s trust by posting the back of the gift card believing in my heart that the pin was covered up safely, and instead I was stolen 230 in the blink of an eye. I’m devastated at myself but also the lack of security they provide. Need assurance or advice.

2023.05.28 06:06 vi3nus Should I stay in an abusive household, or move but have a high chance of becoming homeless?
So I am 20F autistic, dealing with many mental health issues primarily due to my environment. I am living in an abusive household mostly from my aunt and her husband (we all live in my grandfather's house). Lots of verbal abuse, gaslighting, stealing, eavesdropping, dirty stares, and even minor physical abuse such as shoulder checking. I think they may be monitoring me (and my brother) too, via camera or microphone. I do not safe here, and at times I am scared to be here. I have already contacted the DV hotline, and they basically told me to ‘tough it out’. Because it was not physical they couldn't help me out, in other words. I also have a gut feeling that they somehow manipulated my grandfather into giving them the title of the land/house. My grandfather is severely depressed and does not give a fuck about anything. I have told him about the abuse many times before and he just passes it off. I have this feeling because I have heard her say she was going to kick me and my brother out of the house before. As I mentioned before I am autistic, and because of that I am unemployed. I cannot do most work such as cashier. It is way too mentally and physically taxing for me. I am okay at physical work, like stocking or cleaning. I have even applied to some places but never heard back. Right now I only have 20$ in my bank account. Even if I did get hired, I cannot drive and I live in a more rural area so I am stuck at home all day, or until my brothemom can drive me. There is also no buses or other ways of public transportation where I live. I do sell some old stuff of mine on ebay, but I don't get much out of it. The point being, I am very financially unstable, and cannot move out by myself. There is potentially one way I could leave. Because I am extremely desperate I thought about making a go fund me. If I calculated everything correctly I would need about 10,000$ it would be enough to move me, my pets, and my stuff to a city with decent public transport, and cover at least one month of rent. Of course, this plan is very risky. First, I don't know if I can get a job in one month, or at all. Second I will be by myself I will have no one to lean on in case I need it, whether that be financially or emotionally. Because of that, there is a high chance I may become homeless, that scares me especially because i have pets. To be honest, taking such a big step is terrifying to me. I don't know if I am mentally prepared for it. I feel like if I stay here any longer I will die. I cannot put up with the stress anymore. I am so stressed sometimes I feel like im having a heart attack. I have gotten really high blood pressure and can't seem to keep it down. I’m scared of being here, I feel like at any moment her husband can come and get physical. Not even the locked door makes me feel safe.Does anyone have any advice for me? Should I stay here and put up with the abuse, all while my mental and physical health crumble even more, or move out by myself and risk becoming homeless? Both don't sound ideal, but I guess that's just how it is.
Just found out my brother is staying at my father's house for the next couple of weeks, I am now currently home alone with them. fuck. Your're probably wondering why I also dont stay with my father. I wont because, to put it simply my father does care for me. In the past my father was physically abusive towards me, so its not like i would be comfortable their either.

2023.05.28 06:06 Rwby556 Thoughts on God
We are assuming god is real here so don’t come saying god ain’t real We are saying he is or there is something greater than us maybe there isn’t but still . What does everyone think about god if you even believe any god whatever. I’m catholic i guess but I’m just referring to the god we pray to if we do or whatever. Anyways I just don’t get it if he’s all knowing why would he make it a possibility for some peoples bodies to be not efficient or give them a body knowing they would be unhappy. Like I hate mine particularly one part I prayed as a kid so hard and worried so much about it and sadly it did not matter my genetics are determined and it didn’t go to my liking at all. Now im suicidal because of it. I understand god probably does not want us to rely on him and can’t help everyone all the time. Other wise we would never learn or do anything. But why make such a weak pathetic race that will be so upset with themselves that we would rather die? He knows how we would feel about ourselves and all this right? Why can’t he just do some whatever and fix it. Maybe he can’t maybe he can’t do everything we think he can. it’s not just accept your gifts god made you how you are for a reason. We have no proof he even made us maybe we found him eventually maybe he did. If he did make us he made the first couple humans but not all of us. cause I’m miserable and squandered any gift because my body isn’t the way I want it. I don’t feel human, I have no motivation, I have no point to live, no confidence. My confidence is hate because even tho I’m worthless no stupid human is gonna say shit I really despise humans. Not all there are tons of good ones but the bad ones fuck them. He made angels and demons and they are divine beings but then make us? Usually people are made fine and stuff probably how he intended. He probably didn’t intend deformities and all that. Buts it’s embarrassing and unlucky. It makes me not even want to worship god anymore. I’m thankful for whatever he did for me, and I’m mad I fucked up so much because of my body. Even tho it’s pathetic and worthless because of one thing I shouldn’t of carried myself how I did. I would have died with some dignity and not a disappointment. I’d reach where I’m at eventually anyway but still. If god is there he’s done with me by this point I fucked up everything and never learn until it’s to late. And sorry to say but guys have it worse than girls when there body isn’t the way they want it people will still find u attractive.Girls even have surgery guys don’t have any solution. I won’t accept it only fix is a miracle or a new body which god ain’t giving me no matter what. It’s not his fault either it’s my stupid genetics and ancestors or my dumb body for not growing. Anyways I’m not sitting here waiting for something that isn’t gonna happen I tried I prayed I begged I worried my whole life just to be right. Tried the whole good person for good karma thing and it failed big time cause I screwed up whatever came my way or didn’t pursue what was there because I was scared. Just sucks like why the fuck did this have to happen man my life is fine other than that. And now I have to die eventually and as a disgrace. Thanks genetics and whatever caused this. Thanks me for fucking up everything maybe it’s my fault it’s like this to idk. Anyways I think god may have not made us only the first couple humans. Maybe he didn’t see what could happen and by the time he did it was to late and he didn’t kill them because he still saw them as his creations or he didn’t care and didn’t bother to fix it and was done by that point but everything god makes is perfect correct??? That stuff is not perfect and he knows how it would effect the people born imperfect or not in the average type margin. I would’ve rather him killed off anything imperfect so no one has to feel shitty about it. Angels and demons were made perfect why weren’t humans if he truly did make them. And he wouldn’t go hmmm let me make a retard who will get bullied and piss himself at age 30 and annoy his parents who are actually disgusted and upset but say they love him just cause he came from them. I couldn’t even imagine the disappointment when u realize ur dream of a normal kid is over hell I’m not retarded and I even read my dads text he literally said he wished I wasn’t born I told someone and they told him I saw that idk why the fuck they told him I said that I said don’t say anything and I didn’t really care because I feel that way to and understand why he says it. But idk why god wouldn’t help these people or change it especially if they pra to him

2023.05.28 06:05 lazerman121 7 Reasons Lowes could not hold an employee.
I wanna start by saying sorry for the long thread I got carried away but I asure you it is worth reading.
I worked for Lowes from Feb 2020-Dec 2022 When I was told to resign over my hernia. (I made a separate thread about that a while back)
The entire time I worked there we were short staffed because of the “worker shortage” but in reality that was BS. Here are just a few reasons why our store could not hold employees. I am genuinely curios if anyone had similar experienced at their stores?
1 Lying about the worker shortage.
- During the first 2 years of my employment I never had a single vacation day approved they always denied them or left them pending. When asked why my manager simply replied “we can’t afford for you to take off” “we don’t have enough people in your department” or “this job is too important”
- This peaked during the summer of 2021 when we were at 60% staff and yet management claimed they could not find anyone to hire. However employees knew people who tried to apply and were told there were no positions available.
- We had a hiring event where so many people showed up for interviews they sent some home at the end of the night because they ran out of time and yet only 2 people were hired and they told us “No one accepted the job”/” Everyone failed the drug test” (depending on who you asked). Again though same as before we found out they told applicants “all positions were filled”.
2 Last minute schedule changes.
- This was constant. They could not make a good schedule if one bit them in the @$$.
- One time last year me and a friend decided to work on my car one day i was scheduled off but the night before (actually that morning at like 12 AM) as I clocked out I was informed I had to work that day by my manager (he hadn't even changed my schedule yet) I told him I was working on my car and couldn't but he told me I had to. So the next day I am working on my car and I call out unfortunately my manager answered and tells me “you knew you had to work so I am not accepting this call out”. I got a no call no show. :(
- One week I was only scheduled 15 hours for the week. So on a day off I got some hours at another job to work late. At noon on lunch I see I have a text informing me I am to come in at 5. I text back saying ill be late cuz I get off at 5 and I am an hour away. I arrive to work at 6 and am immediately pulled into the office by my supervisor who started ranting at me for being late. When I tell him I was at my other job and that I was originally off he says “Look your loyalty is to Lowes and Lowes first anything less will have you terminated” :/. He then proceeds to rant about how the younger generation (I’m 29 BTW) does not want to work anymore and how companies were failing because of us. What I would give for a recording of that “meeting”?
3 Ignoring Availability:
- We had so many people quit because their availability was not honored after being hired.
- One example was a coworker I’ll call D. D had a full 9-5 job and got this job for extra money. He specifically told them before being hired he could not work Saturdays. Despite this shortly after starting they scheduled him Saturdays and would not budge. D called out every Saturday for 9 months before being fired. Upon firing D our manager stated if D couldn’t work Saturdays why the fuck did he get a job here. Uhm ok but you knew he couldn’t so why the fuck did you hire him.
- D’s replacement starts work but starts at 6 rather than 5 like the rest of the unloaders. He states that he gets off his other job at 5 (oh no here we go again I thought). We told him about D and how they may not honor his availability either. Literally the next FUCKING WEEK his schedule is changed to 5 and when he asked the manager about it he is told “this job is more important, you need to be here by 5” so he quits.
- D’s replacements replacement is a young guy fresh out of high school who does not own a car. He gets the job because they advertised it as a 4 hour part time shift 5-9PM. He states it is perfect because his dad can pick him up from work. He is horrified to learn he is not allowed to leave until tasks are done and the 4 hour claim is BULLSHIT. I wind up bringing him home a lot as his dad is long in bed before we leave. Eventually he also quits stating to me that he would rather have a job he can walk to than beg for rides. :/. Our supervisor then mocks him the following day stating “If he does not have a car than he should not have gotten a job” Like REALLY WTF not everyone is privileged enough to have a car fresh out of school WTH Also in my town Lowes pays minimum wage so beggars can't be choosers.
- They also did this in other departments telling employees in college that Lowes was more important than their college classes.
4 No vacations for you
- I already briefly touched on this but vacations were nearly impossible to get. On top of what I stated in #1 Vacations were almost always denied on the grounds this job is too important and “we can’t afford for you to take off”
- I had a supervisor tell me “Vacations are a sin unto capitalism you’re just an associate you don’t need a fucking vacation” (I have witnesses to this)
- We were constantly belittled and talked down to. My most recent supervisor would tell us on a near weekly basis that we were expendable and they could replace us whenever the f@#$ they wanted.
- On nights we had no truck we would be assigned to different departments. The problem was our supervisors had priority complexes and did not want to listen to other managers or supervisors.
- One night I was working top stock in electrical. And my supervisor upon walking in (an hour after I started) found me and immediately told me I was doing it wrong. After explaining I was doing what the manager told me he walked off. Later came back and yelled at me again to which I told him to talk to the manager. He then proceeds to walk to the back, page the entire store to call me an insubordinate fool and tell me I am being written up for insubordination.
- Hell I had the nickname by one of my supervisors as “That Autistic (F word for bundle of sticks)”
6 Held hostages.
- So mentioned briefly already for the unloaders the advertised shift 5-9pm was a lie and we actually could not leave until the job was done, but do to things like short staffing, messy bays, cleaning up trash and putting away appliances before we started, most nights we would not get done till 10 at the earliest.
- Because the store closed at 9 and 8 pm during COVID we were at the mercy of our supervisors to let us out. The problem was they would refuse if the job was not done. Other times they would make us wait sometimes as much as an hour before letting us out.
- We had one guy who was only there a few days who got tired of being forced to stay late. So one night after waiting to be let out for over an hour he just unlocks the door and walks out setting off the alarm. The following day he is pulled into the office and terminated.
- Even on nights when we were done we still had to wait to be let out. Some supervisors were worse than others. One had the attitude of ill let you out when I let you out. If it was just one person waiting like on my shift a lot we would sometimes wait hours on him.
7 No breaks allowed
- This was not store wide but rather pertained to my shift. As unloaders we were not allowed a break until the truck was done but by the time truck was does it was long after our shift ended most nights.
- On nights when it was a large truck and just one or 2 of us to unload we would sometimes work 7 hours No break or lunch.
Sorry for the long thread I made this to blow off a bit of steam while recovering from surgery and for documentation purposes. I originally decided not to post as it felt like one giant rambling complaint but was encouraged to by some former coworkers.

2023.05.28 06:04 HTTYDFan96 Might lose my accommodation to wear a noise cancelling earbud at work
As the title states I have a work accommodation that allows me to earbuds at work. I'm Autistic with ADHD. They are not tied to my phone's Bluetooth. I don't listen to music and most days I only need one bud to get through my shift. I can still hear customers and coworkers. I use it to drown put the background noise such as the in store radio and hum of the florescent lights. The buds fit within my ears and are barely noticeable due to my long hair covering them.
My boss has honored my accommodation with no problem. My coworkers could care less. However a new assistant manager recently started working at the store. She's been with the company for 30ish years and came in with a stick up her ass.
Shortly after she came to the store I work at the store manager had to leave due to a family emergency, so she took the opportunity to start changing things, such cleaning times, how we do online orders (instead of right away we're told to wait to the last minute), changing everyone's hours without carrying about availability, etc.
When our boss came back, he put a stop to her shit and reset everything. This did not stop her though. She decided to go over his head and start reporting minor things, shoes are the wrong color, a teen employee was late because the bus broke down, cashiers not taking customer abuse, and so on.
Last week she made her way to me when she saw me put one of my buds in. She got mad when I told her I had an accommodation and to take it up with the boss. She stated that accommodations were just another excuse for my generation to be lazy.
I consider myself to be a hard worker, making sure my tasks are done and taking extra shifts when someone calls out. I'm friendly toward the customers and do my best not to ask for help unless absolutely necessary.
It took forever to get diagnosed just to be able to get the accommodation, so that I could better function at work without getting overstimulated by noise.
Should I be worried?

So this is Kris's story about the boyfriend. She said it was an old boyfriend and when she found out he was sending Jaymi photos of her naked she went to his house busted in his bedroom door took his phone busted it and ran like hell. Does she not know how stupid that sounds and what her grown ass boyfriend lives with his mom like how did she get in the house yet had to bust down his bedroom door. Why didn't she have to break down the door period. She says bedroom door. But most junkies live with their mom or just like her.

2023.05.28 06:04 InfernoAA God Made the World in Six Days, I’ll Perfect New Japan's on the Seventh Part Five: Destined
In Part Four, the comeback tour of rockstar Hiroshi Tanahashi was cut brutally short at the hands of the Leader of the New School, Zack Sabre Jr., who embarked on a quest to prove himself New Japan's most valuable gaijin. After beating back Will Ospreay for Royal Quest, he ran into another familiar face in Minoru Suzuki, almost clobbering him into retirement until Naomichi Marufuji made the save. Ending his saga with Just6Guys with a win over Maru, he placed a bow on the long-standing Blackpool Combat Club rivalry by besting Jon Moxley, cementing Sabre-Gun as New Japan's undisputed leaders... That is, without taking Los Ingobernables de Japon into account.
Since becoming one again, LIJ’s been on a tear through NJPW’s ranks this year in spite of Shingo Takagi dropping the belt and PAC losing the New Japan Cup Finals to the current World Champion. IWGP United States, IWGP Tag Team (Death Triangle have become LIJ affiliates through PAC), and NJPW World Television Championships in their grasps, they seek to round out the group by all holding titles simultaneously. But that begs the question – who’ll be going after the World Title? Though Shingo’s battle ready, he insists Tetsuya Naito
take it this time, the Stardust Genius having worked his back off to rebound from Wrestle Kingdom. Failing every attempt in the past 3 years though, the question remains whether he can truly pull it off this time, or if it’s just not meant to be.
Kizuna Road - Night Four (July 1, 2024)
Sabre-Gun (Zack Sabre Jr. & El Phantasmo) vs Los Ingobernables de Japon (Tetsuya Naito & PAC)
With Naito confirmed as Sabre’s #1 Contender for Wrestle Dynasty, SG and LIJ have themselves a scaled-down rematch from New Year’s Dash, Zack picking his trusty right-hand man ELP, and Tetsuya bringing the US Champion, knowing PAC has unresolved issues with ZSJ from the NJC. Though it drives the Bastard to work doubly-hard, especially considering how it’ll look if he pins the World Champion, it also makes their teamwork suffer, PAC becoming self-absorbed in getting the pin. Backfiring, a Sudden Death from Phantasmo knocks his lights out, SG getting their win back from NYD and putting the challenger on the backfoot heading into Madison Square Garden!
Sabre-Gun def. Los Ingobernables de Japon (16:12)
PAC appears distraught after the match, but Naito simply tells him ‘tranquilo’, not taking it personally. Though he’d hoped to use this match to get into ZSJ’s head, it appears he’ll just have to do that himself, like he’s always done.
Wrestle Dynasty (July 14, 2024)
Also on the show: Shota Umino (c) vs El Desperado - NEVER Openweight Championship Just6Guys (SANADA, Taichi, Ryohei Oiwa) (c) vs Los Ingobernables de Japon (Shingo Takagi, Yota Tsuji, Titan) - NEVER Openweight 6-Man Tag Team Championship Hiromu Takahashi (c) vs Kyle Fletcher - NJPW World Television Championship PAC (c) vs El Phantasmo - IWGP United States Championship The Lucha Brothers (c) vs Meiyu Tag - IWGP Tag Team Championship
Zack Sabre Jr. (c) vs Tetsuya Naito XI - IWGP World Heavyweight Championship
In what’s been a very successful night for LIJ thus far, clean-sweeping their way through the competition, it all rests on Naito’s shoulders now to bring it home. Perhaps the most unreliable man to slot in this spot, and yet, the most beloved, MSG fully invested in Tetsuya’s chase, either the grandest of celebrations or coldest of heartbreaks will end the night! Naito keeps his cool, emanating his usual larger-than-life aura as he walks out in a pristine crimson suit, paying homage to Shingo, whilst Sabre’s cockier than ever with his recent streak of huge wins, knowing he has Tetsuya doubting himself after their tag. As he hands his title over, the two come face-to-face, SABRE SPITTING GUM INTO NAITO’S FACE, but Tetsuya doesn’t let ZSJ’s tactics faze him, having come too far for too long to let mind games be his downfall.
Circling each other, Zack lunges for a lock-up but Naito walks past, smirking and stretching in the opposite corner. Sabre rolls his eyes as Tetsuya turns around and tells him ‘tranquilo’, before going for it again… Zack snatching the headlock this time as Naito tries to repeat, but Tetsuya instantly whips him to the corner, teasing the COMBINACION CABRON as ZSJ braces himself… Naito stops in front of him and does the ‘Abre los Ojos’ taunt!
Furious, Sabre piefaces him, NAITO RETURNING A FOREARM, AND WE’RE OFF! Trading strikes, Zack rocks Tetsuya with European Uppercuts, Naito returning forearms, before a Japanese Arm Drag stops Zack in his tracks! Naito goes for another, but Zack hooks onto Tetsuya’s legs, tripping him up and contorting the foot! Tetsuya boots him off with the other, a Neckbreaker and a Somersault Senton connecting, though Sabre absorbs the latter, trapping Naito’s arm onto the mat to STOMP THE HAND!
Picking him back up, he cracks Naito with chops, before whipping him at the ropes, Naito hitting off them one after the other to build momentum, teasing the Flying Forearm Zack’s expecting… only to roll into the Tranquilo pose! ZACK MEETS HIM WITH A NECK TWIST!!! Tetsuya scrambling to the corner, Sabre steps on his throat against the ropes, BEFORE SLAPPING HIM! NAITO SPITS IN ZACK’S FACE!!! A harsh uppercut knocks Tetsuya back, a Running European following and a PENALTY KICK! Naito dodges and nails the FLYING FOREARM SMASH!
Teasing the Tornado DDT, it’s cancelled by an Enzuigiri, Zack leaping for the KIMURA- NAITO COUNTERS INTO VALENTIA!!! ONE! TWO! THR-KICK OUT!!! Sending Sabre into the corner, the COMBINACION CABRON CONNECTS! AND A MISSILE DROPKICK! Naito teases the DRAGON SUPLEX, but Sabre flips through and STOMPS HIS ELBOW! SNAP GERMAN ON THE NECK FROM SABRE!!! ONE! TWO! THR-NO DICE! Naito woozy, his head’s only further knocked around by a ROLLING ELBOW! A CORNER HIGH KNEE connects, before a Hammerlock Suplex floats into a TESCO MEAL DEAL!!!
Naito’s hand flails about the mat as Sabre keeps him grounded, no Valentia escape this time, forcing Tetsuya to work the old-fashioned way to the ropes! MSG backing the Stardust Genius, after much deliberation he gets a foot on the ropes! But Zack’s right back on him, going for a NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX- NAITO STANDS HIM UP WITH A SNAP DDT! An EVOLUCION’S shut down though, Sabre hitting the brakes to nail the ARM PELE! Fishing the arm, Zack tries to float into a FLYING ARTICLE 50- NAITO STUFFS HIM WITH A GLORIA!!! ONE! TWO! THR-SABRE SURVIVES!!!
Rallying momentum, Tetsuya nails the TORNADO DDT! Sabre nursing the head, a DRAGON SUPLEX FOLLOWS!!! In the drop zone, Naito tests the waters for a RUNNING DESTINO- SABRE SHUTS IT DOWN WITH A EUROPEAN CLUTCH!!! ONE! TWO! THR-NAITO’S DREAMS STAY ALIVE!!! Getting dangerously close with the flash pin, Tetsuya throws defiant forearms, Zack catching and contorting one, but a ROLLING WHEEL KICK knocks him off! ESPERANZA!!! ONE! TWO! THR-SABRE KICKS OUT!!!
Hooking the head, Naito hoists Sabre up… ZACK WITH A GUILLOTINE CHOKE MID-AIR!!! Tetsuya’s eyes bulge out his skull, looking for the nearest turnbuckle to ram Sabre into it, but ZSJ’s quicker, yanking him to the mat and transitioning into a JIM BREAKS ARMBAR!!! Brutally bending the arm at an awkward angle, there’s a manic look in Zack’s eyes as NYC desperately cheers on Naito, who does his best to hang on! Sabre keeps tugging further and further, eager to ruin Tetsuya, but it backfires, helping him stretch his leg to the ropes!
The crowd erupts as the referee forces Sabre off, though Naito’s clearly hurting all the same, a European helping no less! Zack rallies with further Uppercuts, one knocking Tetsuya down, before firing a PENALTY KICK!!! NAITO ABSORBS IT AND ROLLS THROUGH, SABRE GOING FOR SECONDS BUT HE EATS A RUNNING DESTINOOOOOOOOO!!! ONE! TWO! THR-NOOOOOOOOOO!!! Shaking himself off, Naito attempts another, though Sabre stops it with elbows, before hopping into a REAR NAKED CHOKE!
Tetsuya tries to run forwards to free himself, though ZSJ swivels on his back into a GEDO CLUTCH!!! ANOTHER FLASH PIN! BUT NAITO ROLLS THROUGH THIS TIME INTO HIS OWN – POLVO DE ESTRELLA!!! ONE! TWO! THR-SABRE STAYS IN!!! AND AN EVOLUCION!!! ONE! TWO! THR-ANOTHER KICK OUT!!! NAITO’S GOING FOR THE SWING DESTINO!!! BUT A ZACK DRIVER COUNTERS!!! ONE! TWO! THR-NOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Slapping up Naito’s neck, Sabre dumps him on it with a TIGER SUPLEX!!! Naito woozy, Zack nails the PENALTY KICK!!! NAITO’S REFUSING TO STAY DOWN! Hearing MSG’s cries, he wills himself back up as Sabre watches in fascination… ONLY FOR ANOTHER PK TO CUT HIM OFF!!! And just like the 2022 NJC Finals, he’s going to end it here with a SECOND ZACK DRIVER- NAITO NAILS A DESTINO MID-AIR!!! HE’S STILL MOVING SOMEHOW!!! Stumbling to his feet, Tetsuya measures his man… DESTINOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! ONE! TWO! THR-SABRE’S FOOT’S ON THE ROPE!!!
Saving Naito more than once, it’s come to Zack’s aid now too! Hammering Sabre with forearms, Naito tees up another DESTINO- PELE KICK!!! Tetsuya falls forward, Zack catching him in a STRETCH MUFFLER!!! IF HE CAN JUST GRAB THE OTHER LEG, IT’S ALL OVER, COMPLETING THE ORIENTEERING WITH NAPALM DEATH!!! Zack bends Naito further and further as he tries to grab hold… TETSUYA SWINGS BACK! AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN! SABRE LETS GO!!! AND A ZACK DRIVER FROM NAITO!!!
Sabre on his back, Naito thinks about waiting for the Destino… but then he sees the top rope. The crowd cry at him not to, screwing him over time and time again, but Tetsuya can’t help it! Heading up top, the world holds their breath, NAITO SOARING THROUGH THE AIR… STARDUST PRESS CONNECTS!!! ONE! TWO! THREE!!! IT’S A MIRACLE IN MADISON SQUARE GARDEN!!! NAITO’S WORLD CHAMPION AGAIN!!!
Tetsuya Naito def. Zack Sabre Jr. (c) to win the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship (31:18)
New York LOSES their minds as Naito’s handed the title, Tetsuya himself struggling to process what just happened! But then LIJ rush out – PAC with the US Title, Hiromu with the TV Title, Shingo, Yota, and Titan with the NEVER 6-Man Titles, and even the Lucha Brothers with the Tag Titles! THEY’RE DRAPED IN GOLD, BABY! Sharing embraces all around as a dismal Sabre trudges to the back, there’s not a single dry eye in the arena as the outcasts raise their fists to the sky with one hand and their titles with the other, golden tickertape hailing down! Naito’s on top of the world after 3 long years, and it feels damn good! Doing the customary championship edition roll-call, the show fades on LIJ holding all their gold… and PAC looking over at Naito’s.
G1 Climax 34
Entering his second of fifteen G1s as the reigning champion, Naito heads B Block opposite stiff competition. Though dispatching of Hiromu in friendly competition on Night One, the two are subsequently assaulted by KONGOH post-match, allowing NOAH’s KENOH to upset him the following night! Behind the 8-ball already, Tetsuya’s motivated to make a comeback, mowing through Narita, Tanahashi, Yota, Sabre, and KENTA to take back the lead! Suffering another surprise defeat at Jeff Cobb’s hands after multiple failed attempts from the Hawaiian Hulk to best him, it opens the door for a returning JAY WHITE to spoil his final night, wrecking Naito’s legs with a ladder, allowing Zack to advance on 14 points! As for B Block, a draw between Will Ospreay and Kazuchika Okada on the final night puts the Commonwealth Kingpin through, the rivals meeting one more time! Other key underlying stories see Shibata finally beating Okada, Ospreay avenging his Takagi loss, PAC beating his fellow LIJ members but losing to SANADA, and KONGOH causing ruckus throughout the competition.

Los Ingobernables de Japon (Tetsuya Naito, Shingo Takagi, PAC, Hiromu Takahashi, Titan) vs KONGOH (KENOH, Manabu Soya, Masakatsu Funaki, Hi69, Shuji Kondo)
Perhaps the focal reason for Naito not making the Finals, KONGOH’s tournament chicanery, as led by KENOH, was a masterfully crafted plan. After losing to Tetsuya in last year’s LIJ vs KONGOH series at Wrestle Kingdom 17, the thought of ruining the Stardust Genius for vengeance never left the Rogue Fist’s mind, and with his win over Tetsuya in the G1, their score is now 1-1. Reigniting the intense rivalry between the two stables, they have an upgraded rematch to their Wrestle Kingdom 16 5-on-5, both sides having greatly changed since then.
Once again, PAC’s especially adamant to claim the spotlight, the loss to SANADA making him temperamental despite having the 2nd best LIJ record in this year’s tournament. An argument breaking out between PAC and Shingo as to who should get the pin is put on ice by Naito, though it doesn’t keep Titan from eating a nasty PFS from KENOH, handing the invaders the win!
KONGOH def. Los Ingobernables de Japon (19:57)
Redeeming WK16, KENOH offers the angriest of satisfied smiles, the group cackling as they gesture belts around their waists, warning that their business isn’t yet over. LIJ left behind, there’s a sour mood in the air from the loss, though when Shingo offers a fist in apology, PAC, taking a look at a nodding Naito, ultimately returns one, showing that despite popular belief, LIJ’s still fine.
Splitting off for Shingo and co. to gear up for KONGOH’s second wave whilst Naito and PAC are scheduled for AEW’s ALL IN supershow, this time taking place in Tetsuya’s home of the Tokyo Dome, both men are set for defences on the show. In PAC’s case, it’s a rematch against J6G’s SANADA, the Bastard adamant to gain Naito’s favour by beating the traitor. As for Naito, he has Jay on his tail!
Until the recent G1, White refused to show his face on any sort of NJPW programming (including Forbidden Door) since being embarrassed at Okada’s hands and having his faction torn to shreds. Leaving Japan to join AEW, no longer having connections to hide behind nor help him, he was forced to be the lone wolf for once, becoming even more merciless, knowing he’s all he has. After spreading chaos abroad, most recently coming up short in the AEW World Championship picture, trauma from his Okada loss clinging onto him anytime the stakes are raised too high again, he decided it was time to return to his roots to clear his head and eliminate any shred of weakness left in his body so that he can claim the top prize again, and there’s no better place to do so than the building his title was taken from him – the Tokyo Dome.
The last time he faced Naito in the Tokyo Dome, he had Gedo by his side, yet still lost. Now though, he declares if he’s to have this match, he wants a compensatory factor. A means of looking out for himself, like Naito has LIJ. He’s already beaten Tetsuya thrice in singles competition, knowing he’s the better wrestler, so this time… HE WANTS A LADDER MATCH!!! Japan’s become more and more geared to the Western market, the culture shifting from traditions, so unless he’s a snob like Okada, he'll embrace the new vision and accept the challenge. Jay using the perfect words to get under Tetsuya’s skin, he accepts, looking to tear down the foundations of the Rainmaker’s regime with his reign, starting with this!
RevProxNJPW 12th Anniversary Show (August 24, 2024)
Los Ingobernables de Japon (Tetsuya Naito & PAC) vs The Knight Dynasty (Ricky Knight Jr. & Zak Knight)
The night before ALL IN features a special RevPro crossover event with their partners, NJPW, the 12th Anniversary being celebrated in Japan. Naturally, Naito tags with the most RevPro familiar member of LIJ, PAC, the two champions battling the celebrated Knight Dynasty, who are considered the present and future of the promotion! What begins as a fun exhibition sees more of the differences between PAC and Naito come to light, the hot-headedness of the Bastard and the collectedness of El Ingobernable wanting different things out of the match, yet still managing to remain reasonably on the same page. A close call on a 619 from Ricky sees Naito shove PAC out the way in the nick of time, absorbing the blow himself, though without acknowledging it, PAC springs to action, a Black Arrow on Zak scoring the victory!

As the referee approaches LIJ with their titles, PAC’s quick to receive both, Naito only recovering just in time to find the Bastard lingering for a moment as he looks between the pieces of gold, before finally handing Tetsuya’s over him and walking off, leaving the leader confused yet unconcerned.

Tetsuya Naito (c) vs Jay White V - IWGP World Heavyweight Championship - Ladder
Stepping into the mastermind of the Switchblade, White baits Naito to play his game, the long-time rivals settling their score over a belt they both have history with. With no Gedo around, Jay’s focus is to demolish Naito’s already tattered knees with the ladder like he did to cost Tetsuya the G1, slowing down each climbing attempt bit by bit. Given the two’s creativity, it’s a sick warfare of increasingly dangerous spots, Naito taking Jay with him to neck bump city, White cruelly massacring Tetsuya’s body with reckless abandon.
White’s notably more in his element here, letting the Tokyo Dome atmosphere heal him whilst hurting Naito. A HANGING BLADE RUNNER cuts a Stardust Press attempt short, the magic only lasting once, but a ladder bridge CANADIAN DESTROYER buys Naito some momentum back! Ultimately, a war atop the ladder sees Naito boot Jay off, allowing him to unhook the gold to retain!

Though Naito walks out with his belt, PAC doesn’t, making the Bastard’s issues all the more prominent, taking more frequent looks over at Tetsuya’s gold, which begs the question – was there more to PAC joining LIJ than originally thought? Still, he wishes Naito good luck for Wrestle Grand Slam, telling him he wants to see the belt on him when they go England. But for now, the end of his trilogy against KENOH awaits!

Tetsuya Naito (c) vs KENOH III - IWGP World Heavyweight Championship
For over two years, the rivalry between LIJ and KONGOH has slowly simmered to this boiling point, coming down to the leaders now to settle their 1-1 score over NJPW’s top title! With the 6-Man Titles changing hands earlier in the night, Naito must put his 200% into assuring the same doesn’t occur here, or it’ll be disaster on New Japan’s waterfront.
As two men that could not be more opposite collide, it’s an intense war over the company’s possession, everyone from fans to wrestlers on the edge of their seats as the last of the NOAH invaders try to leave their mark. KENOH shows nothing but hatred towards Naito for ruining his past chances, whilst Tetsuya savours his every moment in the Sun, having slaved away to hold this belt. A PFS almost does Naito in, whilst the DESTINO does the same for KENOH! Ragdolling the older star with Dragon Suplexes, KENOH sets up for the ENRIN… BUT IN HIS STARDUST PRESS MOMENT, HE MISSES!!! DESTINOOOOOOOOOO!!! ONE! TWO! THREE!!! New Japan remains safe in the hands of Naito!
Tetsuya Naito (c) def. KENOH to retain the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship (28:33)
Offering a handshake to KENOH out of respect for their series… the Rogue Fist declines it, though from the look in his fiery eyes, an inkling of acknowledgement is there for Tetsuya. Telling Naito to keep the belt warm for him, he declares he’ll be back sometime again, and when that happens, he’s going to usurp Naito once and for all!
And as they leave with their 50/50 successes, it’s back to LIJ to end the show on their usual note… except, PAC interrupts the tradition. He’s confused, no, he’s incredulous. What are they celebrating here? Failure? Or are they calling it ‘survival’? Is no one going to point out the elephant in the room? Just two months ago they were on top of the world, all draped in gold, but now they’re left with just Naito and the Lucha Bros’s gold. And yet, they’re celebrating? He’s been out here losing sleep over his missing US Title!
If they wish to continue to be taken seriously, they need to act the part. Luckily… he has a solution. They say iron sharpens iron, so rather than fighting these large-scale wars outside their stable… why not have a ‘friendly’ within? Naito has the title and an incredible row of suitors before him, so he should pick one to defend against! Tetsuya seems perturbed by the idea knowing what almost happened the last time LIJ fought within, but as PAC insists, even pointing out how he’s the only one with a clean record over Naito… Tetsuya turns to him and raises the title! If such claims are going to be made, they need to be backed up too! Challenging PAC with his title on the line, a grinning Bastard accepts, bumping his fist!
Burning Spirit - Night Seven (September 25, 2024)
Los Ingobernables de Japon (Tetsuya Naito, Shingo Takagi, Hiromu Takahashi) vs Death Triangle (PAC & The Lucha Brothers)
Slyly manoeuvring his way into the title rematch he’s desired ever since getting a taste of the gold against Shingo last year, this is more so PAC’s chance to prove himself over the statement he’s seeming to be making. Nonetheless, with various combinations of LIJ facing Death Triangle over the Burning Spirit tour, they supposedly rely on each other to improve their own skill, these 6 especially drawing the very best out of each other. Working more seamlessly with DT than he had LIJ as of late, the freakish chemistry between the AEW lads has a Fear FactoDouble Stomp/Black Arrow combo end Hiromu, PAC grinning as he stares down Naito, the challenge growing closer by day…
Death Triangle def. Los Ingobernables de Japon (18:24)
Giving a brief interview heading into the match at Royal Quest, Naito states that he can’t be certain on what PAC’s intentions are, but all he knows is that no matter what, LIJ sticks together. If this match is what PAC needs for his peace of mind, then it’s all his. All he can hope is the Bastard has the same idea of family in mind.

Tetsuya Naito (c) vs PAC II - IWGP World Heavyweight Championship
The relationship between LIJ and PAC has developed into one of the more intriguing dynamics this year, raising a multitude of questions, but now, the true light of it all will be revealed. Whether it’s friendly fire or another coup, Naito’s ready for whatever PAC may happen to have up his sleeve, whilst the Bastard lets his actions do the talking. For once, it’s an utterly no-nonsense showdown between Los members, Tetsuya taking the threat of PAC very seriously, the Jordie clearly driven to make the grand prize his. And as the match rolls on, Naito starts to see parts of himself in PAC with each cheer or cry from his home crowd.
Just like Naito, he’s the incredibly-talented misfit who was overlooked, but unlike a young Naito, PAC doesn’t realise he has the world on his side already despite his quirks. Whilst Naito had to suffer through his changes, PAC’s a made man, and with each near-fall, the crowd see it too, becoming more and more invested in him! On the cusp of his crowning moment, PAC shows no hesitation unlike the Stardust Press, NAILING THE BLACK ARROW!!! ONE! TWO! THR-BUT NAITO KICKS OUT!!! PAC may have ‘it’, but Naito’s operating on an entirely different level as World Champion, and no matter what PAC may have thrown at him, it’s not his moment just yet. DESTINOOOOOOOO!!! ONE! TWO! THREE!!!
Tetsuya Naito (c) def. PAC to retain the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship (30:11)
Maybe a different day. Both men propped in opposite corners of the ring, they suck deep for breaths, PAC only taking his eyes off Naito when he spots the title bring brought over to him. That should’ve been his. He should’ve been champion right now, but… he starts tuning in the crowd again. A standing ovation for the hometown boy. Though he may not hold the title right now, he’s still a champion in their eyes… Solace. Always overlooked, all he needed was approval. And now more than ever, he feels he has it. Noticing PAC’s realisation, Naito grins and nods to him, the two bumping fists together, no sour ending on this one.
At least, not between LIJ…
OKADA’S HERE!!! After shockingly beating Ospreay for his G1 briefcase earlier in the night, the Rainmaker has his sights on the Tokyo Dome main event, and if things are to be believed, it may be Naito defending
against Kazuchika on the grand stage! The long-time WK rivals locking eyes, there’s a different atmosphere between the Ace and the Dark Ace now. No longer does Okada look upon Naito condescendingly, but with disgust. Though he failed to beat Shingo earlier in the night, Kazuchika’s been vocal all year about the damage he feels LIJ have caused the company.
Where he did everything to purify the promotion with his reign, beating away outsiders, Naito did the exact opposite, bringing them further into their ranks and breaking tradition with a ladder match. With this briefcase in his hand though, he has the power to change that… but so does he
. OSPREAY JOINS IN!!! The man who lost his case earlier in front of his own family, he can’t even look the smug Okada in the eyes. Rather, turning to Naito, he declares his desire to return to WK’s main event to not be over just yet! Against better judgement, he gave Shingo a shot at this title last year and it cost him everything. All he asks is Naito returns the favour! Smirking, Tetsuya tells him ‘earn it’, WK’s main event scene growing all the more interesting!
Battle Autumn - Night Five (October 15, 2024)
Elimination: Los Ingobernables de Japon (Tetsuya Naito, Shingo Takagi, Death Triangle) vs United Empire (Will Ospreay, Jeff Cobb, Great-O-Khan, Aussie Open)
Desperation drives a man to his darkest pits, and Ospreay is very much there. Banding his troops together one year on since the last LIJ/UE tag of this magnitude, the ante’s upped even higher now, needing to survive an elimination match to receive the match of his desires. Both stables going to war here, all their integrated rivalries of the past years come to a head, the one between Ospreay and Naito lying at the centre of it all. UE get a tough break to start with when Great-O-Khan hits the deck early, Mark Davis following, though a comeback removes the Lucha Bros from the equation!
Cobb goes next, before Ospreay takes out PAC, a double countout subsequently removing the leaders from the equation! Boiling down to Shingo and Kyle, the Aussie Arrow pulls out the underdog performance of his life, channelling all of Ospreay’s moves before a GRIMSTONE ELIMINATES SHINGO! OSPREAY’S HEADED TO KOPW!!! Raising Fletcher onto their shoulders, it’s a grand celebration from UE, Will receiving one last lease on life! As for Naito, he can only stand and wait, a final challenge paved in his path to the Dome.

Tetsuya Naito (c) vs Will Ospreay IV - IWGP World Heavyweight Championship
One year ago, Ospreay’s overzealousness cost him the chance to main event Wrestle Kingdom with the World Title, but now, as it all comes full circle, it’s official, the winner of this match defending against Okada! With that in mind, both men are equally ravenous to make the grand opportunity theirs! Their fourth match together, it’s rife with callbacks, Naito especially making sure to remind Will of the way he beat him in last year’s A Block Finals to get in his head.
To Tetsuya’s surprise though, this matured Ospreay is impervious to his strategies! No matter what the champion throws, the challenger always has an answer, their see-saw saga featuring plenty of nail-biting near-falls that could send either man through, but it’s a TRIAD OF HIDDEN BLADES that ultimately calls it, Ospreay finally reclaiming his throne, a date with destiny set in stone!

Before WK though, Power Struggle is on the calendar! Featuring the likes of Death Triangle dethroning KONGOH for the NEVER belts for PAC to fully find his place in LIJ, Ren Narita dethroning Katsuyori Shibata for the NEVER Openweight Title, and Shingo Takagi taking the US Title from SANADA, it also sees Ospreay team with Catch 22 against Okada and the two men who ended Francesco Akira and TJP’s legendary reign, SHO & Taiji Ishimori, with UE scoring the vengeful win! And on the final Road To Tokyo Dome special, Ospreay finds a surprising ally in Shibata against Okada and Tanahashi in a HUGE blockbuster tag, CHAOS getting their win back here as Shibata keeps chasing down a rematch with Tana!

Will Ospreay (c) vs Kazuchika Okada XII - IWGP World Heavyweight Championship
Finally, this is what it’s all led to. A story set in motion from the very first moment Ospreay set foot in NJPW under Okada’s guidance in CHAOS 9 years ago. Fighting through loss after loss after loss, he finally achieved his clean win over Okada last year to reclaim his World Championship, but now, he must accomplish an even greater task – beat the Final Boss in the Tokyo Dome itself! Failing on both occasions against Okada on NJPW’s biggest stage akin to Okada’s own chase of Tanahashi, it’s his Wrestle Kingdom 10 moment now as he
walks into the Dome as the reigning champion, with the Ace as the challenger! Win and he’s immortalised in history. Lose and Okada resets the company’s entire trajectory. High stakes weighing on Will’s shoulders, it’s time to elevate under pressure!
Entering with WK level entrances to boot, Okada dripping sheer gold, and Ospreay with an entire kingdom of suited individuals accompanying him, they get underway as the bell sounds! And for the first time, it’s Ospreay controlling the opening sequence with the Tanahashi-style headlock! Big brothering Okada, he doesn’t let the Rainmaker out the gates in his own ballpark for a few minutes straight… BEFORE WILL EXPLODES FOR A HANDSPRING ENZUIGIRI!
Okada dodges, going for a GERMAN, but Will flips through, nailing the HOOK KICK, an OSCUTTER coming up empty, Kazu swinging for a ducked RAINMAKER, and it’s a stalemate! Trading forearms, a Lariat dumps Okada out, Ospreay running Kazu’s routine of the guardrail whip and Big Boot, a RUNNING CROSSBODY EATING A DROPKICK! Nailing a TOMBSTONE on the floor, Okada sets up a table at ringside before rolling Ospreay in, the MISSILE DROPKICK and AIR-RAID CRASH NECKBREAKER harping on the neck! ONE! TWO! THR-KICK OUT!
Wrenching the MONEY CLIP, it doesn’t get him far, a BRAINBUSTER catching Okada by surprise! SHOOTING STAR PRESS! ONE! TWO! THR-NO DICE! A PIP PIP CHEERIO eats a BEAUTIFUL DROPKICK, before Okada whips Ospreay at the corner, only for Will to pop him up onto the turnbuckles, slamming Kawada Kicks into his face! CHEEKY NANDOS! Ospreay tries for a LIGER BOMB through the outside table, but Okada drops to the apron! Will charges for a Yakuza Kick, but a LANDSLIDE BLOCKS!!! ONE! TWO! THR-OSPREAY STAYS IN!!!
Hammering the neck, Okada lunges for a RAINMAKER, though a SNAP CUTTER blocks! ROBINSON SPECIAL! Will winds up the CHELSEA GRIN, but it receives a slap and a JOHN WOO DROPKICK! A pair of Short-Arm Rainmakers ricochet off Ospreay, but a Rainmaker is feigned for a DDT! DIVING ELBOW DROP!!! ONE! TWO! THR-WILL KICKS OUT AGAIN!!! A TOMBSTONE is countered by knees, Ospreay whipping Okada at the ropes, Kazu countering a BACK BODY DROP OVER THE ROPES!!!
Will narrowly missing the table, Okada follows with a TOPE CON HILO… BUT OSPREAY MOVES OUT THE WAY, THE RAINMAKER EXPLODING THROUGH THE WOOD!!! Shoving Okada’s lifeless body inside, Ospreay sets up a HIDDEN BLADE!!! ONE! TWO! THR-NOOOOOOOOO!!! A STORM BREAKER is blocked, Okada nailing a sick CORNER GERMAN! Dropkick rocks Will, before the TOMBSTONE connects! RAINMAKER’s dodged, Ospreay rebounding into an OSCUTTER- DROPKICK!!! AND A RAINMAKERRRRRRRRRRRRR!!! ONE! TWO! THR-NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Okada keeps the wrist, going for seconds… OSPREAY NAILS A RAINMAKER OF HIS OWN!!! Wrist still held, Will nails close-range elbows to the neck, before winding up another HIDDEN BLADE- HEAVY RAIN!!! OKADA NAILS HIS OWN HIDDEN BLADE!!! Teasing the STORM BREAKER, Ospreay spins out, dumping Kazu with a LANDSLIDE!!! AND A HIDDEN BLADE… Okada collapses! As Will tries picking him up, a DROPKICK awaits! ANOTHER DROPKICK! AZTEC SUPLEX – A LA ULTIMO DRAGON!!! ONE! TWO! THR-KICK OUT!!!
Okada decks Ospreay with a RAINMAKER, but Will doesn’t go down fully, Kazu nailing a SECOND! Going for the Ripcord this time… RAINHAM MAKER!!! ONE! TWO! THR-OKADA KICKS OUT!!! ESSEX DESTROYER!!! ONE! TWO! THR-ANOTHER KICK OUT!!! Cracking a HIDDEN BLADE off Okada’s nose, an OSCUTTER follows, before he floats into a STORM BREAKER- FALLING RAINMAKERRRRRRR!!! ONE! TWO! THR-NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Okada smelling blood, he tries for another, AND A HIDDEN BLADE CONNECTS AT THE SAME TIME!!! Keeping hold, the two knock each other loopy with one free arm… OSCUTTER’S CAUGHT WITH A TOMBSTONE!!! Okada picks him back up, going for a SPINNING TOMBSTONE- OSPREAY REVERSES INTO A SPIKE PILEDRIVER!!! Ripcord… HIDDEN BLADE!!! AND A STORM BREAKER!!! Hoisting him up for one more… A SECOND STORM BREAKERRRRRRRRRRR!!! ONE! TWO! THREE!!!
Will Ospreay (c) def. Kazuchika Okada to retain the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship (40:51)
HE’S DONE IT! OSPREAY’S FINALLY SURPASSED THE ACE ON HIS OWN STAGE! No longer is Okada himself anymore, but rather the Tanahashi to Ospreay’s Okada, the cycle continuing. And like his counterpart 9 years ago, Kazu leaves as empty-handed as he walked in for the first time in a decade, the times officially changing! And as sunlight washes over the Land of the Rising Sun, a new dawn is revealed. The dawn of the Ospreay Era.
Heading into 2025, NJPW is rife with changes, seeing more of the once Young Lion names step up as the likes of Tanahashi and Naito begin to slow down. CHAOS features a massive shakeup the following night as Shinsuke Nakamura returns, kickstarting his road to retirement, having been vocal in his interest of facing Tanahashi, proceeding to feud with Okada over his failures. As for Ospreay, his reign runs until Sakura Genesis, where one NJC Winner Katsuyori Shibata finally dethrones him 8 years on from his loss to Okada, though Will’s time with the title is far from over yet, remaining an integral part of the picture alongside ZSJ, Shingo, and more.

2023.05.28 06:04 Whrzy I need confirmation that my best friend wasn't insane.
So basically to give some background I've had this best friend for 6 year's. I'll name him Tim for the sake of this specific case. Tim and I always got along well infact more then well. Most of the time I felt we were the same person because of how close we were. I would always be at his house every single day or him at mine, the cycle never repeating.
As time passes by though I start having these short periods of time where I'll remember things. It'll be little moments where I'll hear him threatening me and thinking I'm REMEMBER it happening, but it was year's ago. I never confronted him year's ago but it's like I'm just hearing them now. Sometimes I'll have visions too, them all taking place a while ago aswell.
In ever single moment he speaks or I see him he's always threatening me or hitting me and it's always when we were alone. He never had this immediate aggressive nature toward me infact a lot of times he was kind. No way in hell did I like this but my mind is tricking me that I did.
Was my mind just blanking these moments out? I don't know why this keeps happening. He was never this way to anyone else and If it was his siblings or anything it was in a playful way, not like this. If you are wondering about us now, we had a falling out about a year ago because we didn't match anymore frankly. I just want to know if this has happened to anyone else or anything along the same lines. Thank you!

2023.05.28 06:03 ABC123brd I have no clue what i'm doing now
So like ig i'm asexual, i'm a teen, 18 so this isnt weird. I never necessarily had an interest in sex or anything for a while but you know i'm a teen so i thought screw it and had sex, then again, then again. I still don't like it, actually not only that but i feel numb, couldnt ever remain turned on at all and i honestly wanted to throw up after the 1st time. I never really cared much for lgbtq stuff, not cause i disagree just cause i don't like how the people in it are usually, coming from someone who did drama for years as a kid and while i grew up sporty they definitely did not. I've determind i'm asexual ig, i can't think of anything else. Thing is most people can just decide there a sexuality like its no big deal, but i'm having a straight panic attack and planning my life. How about kids i still want them, will i ever find a girlfriend, i feel sick at the thought of sex can she live with that, my parents like how. Anyway ig i just want to hear from people or i mean just know someone is atleast understanding me, i kinda just needed to vent my pure fear rn so idk i guess help please before i have a heart attack and fall over

2023.05.28 06:03 vincecool456 Toxic Relationship, for the uncommon reasons.
I don't know what I'm asking for in this post, maybe some advice? Maybe some help? Or maybe just a place to rant without people knowing who I really am? I don't know. What I am certain is that some part of me already decided to do this so here I am.
I don't want to just, dump everything that is of me and this person here (I'm okay about telling things about me, but when it comes to the privacy of this other person, I'd prefer to keep them more anonymous than anything really, one thing I'd say, they are my guardian figure at the moment.) I'm in a bad spot right now, I don't really know what to do, at the same time, don't want to do anything about it, but despite knowing intellectually no one can really be a burden to someone else, I genuinely feel like my existence only prevents this person's life from being better than their life is currently.
I have been totally ignorant to some things they say, despite knowing they could be better for me, nay, knowing they are better for me, I don't want to do them, it's a vice for the understanding yet lack-of-action. That, despite their clear love for me, I don't feel it, there are many other things I'd like to do that I believe will drastically improve our situation, yet I'm told that well, that they'll do it for me. Maybe it's because I don't see that as love and rather something more catered to a fulfilment of their own desires. And that, I'm told that because of these things, I am given these "freedom" or "privilege" to do whatever and all, but I never ever saw it that way ever. I'd even double down for reasons I'll exclaim later.
It doesn't feel right, nothing feels right, both our treatment to each other, I don't want any malice and all I want is for things to go better, but our differing perspective continue clashing and it just breaks me at times. I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, I'm the person to peak in school but simply fail in practicality. I'm not responsible at all, I'm forgetful and lose my attention most of the time, but I've always been smart enough to tell myself that, "It's not completely your fault."
I never had a dad, some try to be my father figure but I've grown accustomed to not having one, once I was told after failing basic tasks that "Maybe you're just special. And that we need to adapt to you." And, it felt more insulting than it did caring, still it lingers in me like a scar engraved deep in my skin. But ever since then I've been more open to the idea that maybe I am just different, that my thought processes aren't meant to be understood like a normal person. I don't want that to be the justification of my behavior nor attitude towards all my mistakes, but understanding how I've been learning with everything else such as video games, all my hobbies, and specially how I did with school... it would make sense that because practicality was taught differently to me, that maybe if I learned it my way will make me a more societally fit and responsible person.
That has been the leading motive and agenda to my many tries of independence, but to no avail. I want to see what life would be like if I was just put in my own place and no one was there for me to depend on. What creative ways or methods will I craft to find my own harmony to what they had nailed into me called "practicality." Clearly, as I'm writing this post I've accepted that so long as I'm under them, I can never achieve that.
So I question, what has family become for me? Is this why I was never able to love my family as I would my best-friend? If love is incomparable then why is it that I feel more care and at peace with my friends than my family? People like my guardian often say that they're doing these things for me, that I'm too irresponsible enough and that's why they can't give me more tasks to do or whatever. I find that completely irrelevant.
It's what I said earlier, they'd rather do these things for me, it feels undermining, it feels like they're giving me the short-end of the stick, and every single day every time they go about saying things like "You're going to be 18 this year, when will you mature?", "I have to keep reminding you or else you'd never learn to do it.", "You can't do anything because all you do is have your phone beside you the entire day"...
The phone excuse hurts me the most honestly, I have my phone beside me because it's the only thing that's been keeping my mental up in times like this, I've grown to just love chatting and feeling for things because I can talk to people with similar experiences, friends who despite being hundreds of kilometers away, I feel closer to. People that I've gotten genuine help from just because of this little device. And the people who I idolize that at this rate, I've felt that I've learned so much more from and is the leading example of why I would like to strive to be a lead example in society...
I've done bad things in the past, even to my family, I mean don't we all? I don't speak of them nor apologize I'd rather prove that I've changed specially with my personality and I can look back at them happily, but I guess I know that as the way they treat me leaves a scar, so does the actions I've done in the past. But an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind no?
If there was one thing I could ask from this post, maybe it's direction, I don't know how I should handle the things going on right now, I don't know how bad things can get, I don't know what things I should do? Especially with my guardian, I don't feel the love she says she gives, but I still care for her and despite me not wanting to be a burden, I still want to learn the way I think is best for me, and they still seem too closed in their own world to accept that maybe their ways aren't the best for me. Or maybe I am wrong about this, who knows.

2023.05.28 06:03 Helpful_Boat1360 I did everything, but how do you tell someone that?
2023.05.28 06:02 DrDogStroker78 Im paranoid my (18m) gf (18f) Is Going To Cheat On Me during her holiday
I'm an overthinker and have had every thought and scenario play over in my head possible, my gf and I have been dating for nearly 7 months and at one point we broke up in february but got back a few days after, and so far the past 2 months have been rocky but things are starting to pick up for us both because of a choice she made.
OCT 2022 We met at a party last October, she brought her friend L (17m) with her and after a few drinks they got a bit cuddly and kissed a few times, my brother (22m) kicked out L for trying to sleep with her so my drunken self decided to chat her up, we kissed alot until she brought me upstairs, my brother told me not to have sex with her because weyre both drunk and it could get me in alot of trouble, so I didn't but she pulled me on the bed and kissed me very passionately but after 2 attempts at getting up off of her I finally did and she went to bed.
DEC 2022 My gf and my sister (18f) went to one of their friends birthday parties and all got heavily drunk and until february I had no idea my gf kissed a homosexual man called T, but she profusely apologised and I forgave her under the condition if it ever happened again, we wer over.
FEB 2023 In the middle of the month me and my gf got into a HUGE argument and we actually broke up for a few days because of it (I'm not telling the details) and on the very same DAY we broke up she invited L over to her house (this will be important later) and she told me he kissed her but she pulled away saying this wasn't right and shortly after he left.
MARCH 2023 I discover that my gf is pregnant with out first child, I'm overjoyed but she has long loathed and despised children and vowed to never have any so this caused many many MANY arguments vetween us wether we wer keeping it or not
MAY 2023 We went to the ultrasound but after she said she was disappointed it wasnt dead and alot of other things wer said so lost all enthusiasm for it and I told her that I was miserable The past 2 months because of it, so as of now (28/05/2023) she's getting an abortion, I came to a revelation a few weeks back because I was paranoid she was talking to her BFF about me and she was telling my gf to break up w me and planting ideas in her head, I was always paranoid because I just knew I was right, and lo and behold I was right!! Si I was right about 1 major paranoid but what about another? I looked at the dates where the baby would have been conceived and it was within the same week we broke up for those few days however we had sex 2 to 3 times during that week, now my paranoid self always thought what if she did more with L the day she invited him around? And what If the reason she wanted the baby dead was secretly because it might not be mine?? Ik it's crazy but I reached out to L and asked him about that day, he said she kissed him and asked him out but they didn't have sex, so the baby is mine but she lied to me about what happened that day so I was mad at that.
Recently she got Plane tickets to fly to Poland for 2 weeks later this year and due to her past actions and alcohol abuse I think she might accidentally or intentionally cheat on me, I've been paranoid about 3 key things in this relationship... 1. Her bff trying yo sabotage the relationship... 2. The L story not being true and 3. Her cheating on me.
Ik it's a red flag wich is why I don't accuse her or ask her I just think about it, but considering how she was the DAY she met me (btw we wer both virgins at the time) she tried to sleep with me, she kissed a homosexual while drunk, she asked out a guy the day we broke up, I was right after 4 months of constant paranoia about her BFF and I was also right about what she said happened that day not being true.
She said she'd tell me if it happened because she couldn't live with the guild but I don't know how true that is.
(Apologies for the spelling)
TL:DR. Gfs past actions are making me paranoid she's going to cheat on me while she's on holiday in Poland for 2 weeks.

2023.05.28 06:02 abbeynstovall The heir issue
Why is present day queen charlotte so focused and eager about getting an heir from her children if her and George had an heir (Georgie)? I guess I get for next in line but what’s the big rush especially when George’s mother did this to her she knows how it feels ?

2023.05.28 06:02 General-Oven-1523 Zerging bosses for participation trophies.
I'm curious, does anyone actually enjoy these world bosses where you just zerg it down with randoms and everyone gets participation trophies? What kind of crap is this? It sucks in BDO, and it's going to suck in T&L.
You all want to talk about how it's an "old-school" MMORPG, but then happily go do world bosses to get your reward. This is nothing like old-school MMORPG. If it were, the rewards would be limited, and you would have to fight for the bosses to get them. When did this kind of crap become acceptable?

2023.05.28 06:02 Accomplished-Ease381 Need help understanding and handling husband when in psychosis
Apologies for the long winded post in advance. My husband in Sept of last year started to not make sense,became very angry, and put my life and his in danger. We didn't realize it at the time that he was going through his first ever episode of psychosis. We were unable to pin down what would have caused it. It did not help that the hospital kept him in the Er for 8 days without giving him anything but Ativan shots(which caused aggression) so they gave him haliperidol. And then transferred him to a psychiatric hospital where he was put on antipsychotics(prolixin shot,clonidine,quentipin) he stopped taking all meds within a week and didnt get the next shot. They diagnosed him with stress induced psychosis but he's been under way more stress than the time period leading up to his break. He could make sense for long periods of time during his psychosis and the er sent him home twice because they thought I was overreacting and there was nothing wrong with him. He thought I poisoned him and he said some terrible stuff. Now just recently he went through psychosis again. Again, we have no idea why this is happening after never having anything like this happen to him his whole life. He again got sent home twice from the er before they kept him 2 days and then sent him to psych hospital. They diagnosed him with unspecified psychosis and sent him home on zyprexa. That was the 15th of this month and he stopped taking his medication. He again thought I drugged him, he screamed for 5 hours straight saying nasty things to me and my 2 kids who are in their early 20s. The cops were called because he grabbed a pair of huge scissors and cut his hand intentionally with them. He thought we were going to hurt him and I was scared he was going to hurt one of us. The problem I'm having is that he says there is nothing wrong with him and that he doesn't need meds,counseling,or treatment. Some of the things he thinks happened are not true at all. He has a huge distrust of me that wasn't earned. I don't contradict his feelings. I try to understand where he is coming from but I don't know how much more hurt I can take. I have breast cancer. I have missed important appointments. My husband will act indifferent to me or say things are my fault. He will continue to tell me false narratives because he believes them to be true. I got rid of all the guns in the house this last time and he's gone from yelling at me that I stole from him to saying he's depressed he doesnt have them and hes going to go into psychosis again because he doesnt have his stuff. I can not allow them back into the house because im scared. I've tried talking to him nicely,supporting him,being non combative. No one gave me any advice from the hospital on what to do if this happens again. I usually notice the onset and try to talk him into voluntary commitment while he's lucid but he doesn't go. I end up spending 3 days at home staying up hours at a time trying to get through to him and him spiraling. Then either calling an ambulance or the cops just for him to go and be let out,then go a second time and be let out again within hours and then finally being involuntarily committed the 3rd time. Again, sorry for such a long post I'm just at my wits end. I truly love him but everything has changed.

2023.05.28 06:01 Lazy-Stable-7059 Hair style recommendations? I found out I'm a soft autumn and will be trying lighter hair colors but I'm lost on how to style :( I've had full bangs before and they did not suit me but id be willing to try again
| || |
I have very thin, straight hair and not a lot of it. submitted by Lazy-Stable-7059 to femalehairadvice [link] [comments]
I'm currently using a volumizing shampoo and my hair can hold some volume all day just from letting it dry a certain way.
If I let my hair fall straight down and cover the sides of my face it looks horrible! So I usually tuck it behind my ears
Thanks in advance!
2023.05.28 06:01 eclipse_aro im not a “good traumatized person”
i was extremely traumatized by my dad (and mom and others) and all i got was 5 stigmatized disorders to show for it. i have DID, NPD, BPD, PPD, and DPD. i hate that people believe in “narc abuse” or “borderline abuse” i am not abusive!! NPD and BPD stem from trauma they are usually trauma related!!! i hate that im not “i got stronger by this” and i’m just a lousy human with disorders that that people think are for circus tricks and horrid people. i hate that every time i try and go into a C/PTSD space they talk about “narc abuse” its just emotional abuse please stop being ableist ahg i hate my brain
why did i get 5 stupid disorders with trauma when people are talking about how im an evil monster for being traumatized

2023.05.28 06:00 Kas_Bent Week 22 - What are you reading?
Hope you all had a good reading week. An excellent audiobook got me out of my reading slump and now I feel like I can take on my entire TBR at once!
I finished: Fractal Noise
by Christopher Paolini (audiobook). It was . . . fine. Slow-paced and then it suddenly ended without anything really answered. The concept was interesting and the added sound effects for the audiobook were great, but it really left me wanting. 3/5 7 Deadly Wonders
by Matthew Reilly. Read for my book club. I apologized to them for how awful it was - I really don't remember it being written that poorly when I read it years ago lol. 2/5 The Hellmouth Guardian's Lover
by Adriana Herrera. Just awful and so many typos. 1/5 Magic Bites
by Ilona Andrews (audiobook). I originally read this series, but decided to spring for the recent GraphicAudio release and I'm so glad I did. It was so much fun and felt like I was seeing an old friend again. 4.5/5
DNF'd My Queendom for a Horse
by Bridget E. Baker (audiobook)
I'm currently reading Nona the Ninth
by Tamsyn Muir with /bookclub
and Magic Burns
by Ilona Andrews (audiobook).
What are you reading?

2023.05.28 06:00 trashbinprod I got "scammed" because of a pretty major flaw in Steam Guard
My account just got hijacked today. I have a Steam Guard mobile authenticator and everything, so I'm not sure how, but that's besides the point.
The hijacker was able to sell some of my TF2 items on the Steam Community Market. Many of them were quite expensive. However, the hijacker simply sold them for less than $1, completely bypassing the Steam Guard confirmation that is required when selling something for over $1.
That's the problem. You can completely bypass a security measure, and relatively simply too. This needs to be fixed.
The simple solution here is to require Steam Guard confirmation for EVERY ITEM. That's a little bit blunt, though, so maybe there could be a system where the item requires confirmation if it is being sold for less than its average sale price.
Requiring confirmation for every item still seems to me like a good "umbrella" solution to this problem. By that, I mean that it would prevent ALL potential cases of this happening in the future.
I did post this here because I wanted it to get more attention from casual Steam users. I feel like it's a relatively rare scam too.
So please, don't log into Steam on someone else's computer. I'm assuming that's how this happened to me, although I have no idea where or when that happened.

2023.05.28 06:00 pastalot T avoiding in-person requests?
Towards the end of last year my T (who, during our sessions, works from home) said she was figuring out what in-person was going to look like for 2023 because she wanted to start getting clients in-person to build stronger relationships etc and I told her I was interested and she said we'll figure out what it will look like.
So in February I was like uhh soo.. in person? And she said "I've been meaning to ask you!"
So I went in-person the following week. I emailed her later letting her know it was nice to finally meet after a year and that I would enjoy more in-person sessions as I think they would be easier for me to open up. She never responded to the email, which I thought was odd, considering she responds to just about every single one of my emails ever.
Since then, there has been no mention. I'm considering bringing it up, but it seems like she reserves in-person spots for people on certain medication (she mentioned late last year some people have to go in-person). I'm just a little disappointed because what she said at the end of last year, and then just now ignores it. It feels like she ignores very specific things rather than just telling me, and this is one of those things.
Have any of you navigated something similar? How did it go?
P.S. - Could be totally wrong, but there have been signs throughout the past year that she could have motherly feelings towards me and I have a great relationships with her. Is it ever possible a therapist may keep a client to video sessions rather than in-person because of countertransference or the client's transference?
I'd rather be told the real deal instead of sugarcoating or having a question/topic be avoided. 🤷♀️
