I FINNALLY FOUND THIS AGAIN AFTER LITERAL YEARS OF LOOKING BC I FORGOT YOUR USER WHEN i STOPPED USING TUMBLR I’M SO HAPPY
I was in line at Aldi and this girl with two toddlers in front of me had her card declined and she looked so fucking sad and said “let me call my husband real quick” and it was only 18 dollars, so I just paid for it, and she was very sweet and then as she walked off, the lady behind me said `”You know that was probably a scam, right?” and like, even if it was, like what a sad fucking scam, right? 18 dollars at the Aldi. If you’re “scamming” me for some Tyson chicken and apple juice and cauliflower, then just take my fucking money.
“A scam” people are fucking wild.
This happened to me, too. A woman had used WIC for the majority of her stuff (which I say from personal experience is such a long and embarrassing process) and to buy the remainder of her groceries, which included diapers and wipes, she used a card, and it got declined. I bought the other $30 of her groceries because hey, I’ve been there, and now I’m not. She was extremely emotional and began to cry and even hugged me. My mom called me on the drive home and could tell I had been crying myself, asked what was wrong, and when I told her what happened, she berated me for being “duped.” I couldn’t believe she could be so disappointed in one of her children for doing something- nice? Is that the hill you want to die on? Getting mad about people needing groceries?
I once paid for a woman’s bill at the vet…it wasn’t a big one, but she was trying to pay for some medication for her dog, and her card was declined. And her lip started trembling, and she says “I don’t get paid until Tuesday, would he be ok until then?”
So I just told them to add the $20 something onto my bill, and I thought she was going to break down crying right there.
And I don’t care if it was a scam or not. Just do nice things for people sometimes.
Do good recklessly.
I think “Do good recklessly” would be fantastic word art to hang on one’s wall. Artistic people, go!
So this has happened to me but from the other side. Several years ago when my oldest was around three or so, I had my debit card decline at Walmart. It wasn’t a scam or a mistake, I was genuinely broke. Out of money. I checked my bank and discovered I had something like 7 dollars left to my name and a hungry kid and nothing to eat at home. So I sat there trying to come up with the best way to stretch that tiny amount of money to feed my kid. Not even to feed me. I can live on popcorn or something if I have to but my kid was three and he had to eat. So there I am trying really hard not to cry while I slowly take things out of my basket to get it down to under 7 bucks, when a lady tapped me on the shoulder. I looked up and she smiled at me and started putting the things back in my cart. I opened my mouth to tell her that I didn’t have the money for them but she stopped me right away and said “Don’t worry about it. It’s gonna be fine.” Then she handed the cashier her credit card and said “Ring up all of it.” My kid got to eat because of her. I got to eat because of her. I had laundry soap and deodorant because of her. She could’ve just ignored me silently struggling in that line. She could’ve decided I was a scam and gone home feeling good about avoiding being duped. But instead she chose to help me and she saved us. So maybe the person struggling in front of you is trying to put one over on you or maybe they are just sad and broke and trying to figure out what to do. You get to decide which you want to believe and what you want to do. But I’ll tell y’all, no one has ever been more beautiful to me than that lady in that line who saved me and my baby. Be like her. Be beautiful.
Do good recklessly
DO BETTER. BE BETTER. STRIVE TO BE BETTER.
DO GOOD RECKLESSLY
One time, my dad and I were living the grocery store and there was a guy outside asking for money to buy some stuff to take home for his kids. It was around Christmas time. My dad asked him if he could give him groceries instead of money, and the guy immediately said yes, so my dad gave him one of everything we bought (meat, rice, some chocolates, milk, oil). At that time, my dad hadn’t gotten his paycheck because the company he worked for was going through a tough time, but he didn’t care, he saw an opportunity to help someone and he did.
Another time, my dad gave 50 bucks to a guy who said he needed to buy medicine for his kids. I told my dad he was probably going to spend the money on alcohol or something, but my dad said that “whether he was lying or not says something about HIS character, but hearing someone in need and choosing not to help when I have the means to says something about mine”.
I never forget that.
Can we make Do good recklessly The slogan on 2019
Do good recklessly is the moral i try to embody
one of yall on here commissioned this i believe
In 2019 we grow from sex positivity to sex responsibility, meaning we:
- call out shitty people who are just abusers and using kink/polyamory to mask it and stop supporting them
- recognize that sometimes hypersexuality can be a form a self-harm for some people
- keep kinks and fetishes in appropriate spaces and not bringing them out into general public spaces and thereby involving people in scenes they aren’t consenting to
- understand that some fetishes are inherently unhealthy and some illegal to actually engage in for good reason and ignoring that is irresponsible at best
- teaching teenagers safe sex but not encouraging them to engage or seek out dangerous sexual situations or sex with a partner who doesn’t care about them in an attempt to be ‘sexually liberated’
I have this picture of sasuke on my phone that chase and I call “safe for work sasuke” and it’s because it’s the tallest picture in my camera roll so whenever he sends me any nsfw stuff when I’m in public I just send sfw sasuke and he takes up the whole screen
this is the only post we’re allowed to reblog from now on lads
Why is humidity important in ball pythons?
An ambient humidity of at least 55% using a digital hygrometer is necessary to maintain when keeping these animals. They have adapted to very humid environments, with relative humidity often exceeding 80%. Here are some graphs showing the humidity in ball python range:
When kept in low humidity, osmotic pressure forces water out of the body quite literally with every breath the snake takes. This leads to rapid dehydration.
Symptoms of dehydration include sharp wrinkles where the snake bends, stuck shed, dented/wrinkled eye caps. Ball pythons also appear malnurioushed when extremely dehydrated, as it causes their skin to take on a very droopy appearance.
In very uncommon circumstances, dehydration can be caused by illness such as renal failure. Dehydration can most often be attributed to low humidity though.
Dehydration is dangerous because it reduces the helpful mucus coating that prevents pathogens from entering the lungs, it helps to make digestion more productive and possible, and it allows proper shedding to take place.
For these reasons, it is important to maintain a relative humidity of at least 55%.
you can honestly get a lot of information on someone by their favorite bird(s)
ostriches, penguins, kiwis: probably under 12 years old
pigeons, sparrows, starlings: appreciates the little things, probably someone who’s kind when nobody’s looking
hummingbirds: either a middle aged mom or a grandparent
parrots: Just That Kind Of Person
crows, ravens, magpies, corvids in general: probably went through an emo phase, can tell you more than you want to know about animal intelligence
