2023.04.01 13:33 WiiPlayer8 Song heard in shop that says 'show me that I...' and 'making me detest her'

I've heard this song recently in 2 shops in England. It starts with a fast pop/dance beat and the singer sounds like Ellie Goulding. The chorus starts 'show me that I...' or 'you gotta show me that I...' and another lyric is 'making me detest her, detest her'. I've tried searching for these lyrics. Please help!

2023.04.01 13:31 MinnesotaSharkIce Teachers deserve more pay

Don't care what people say The biggest myth is that teachers get a summer break, what the fuck do you think, rent isn't due for those summer months? Fucking idiot By all means un enroll your kids from school and watch them become illiterate morons. Biased because I don't care I make more money then my mom and always ask her why she wants to be a teacher and she says that she loves teaching kids

2023.04.01 13:31 the-actual-doctor Genuinely intrigued now...

I posted a while back, asking why event placements work the way they do. I've long accepted that it won't change, and it's whatever, because I tend to DP most songs in events now. However, since I've added some new friends recently, I've noticed that I'm placed 2nd in my friends list on some songs, despite us both having DP; why is this placement different to events (i.e. identical scores grouped together)? It's very annoying to know that I'll never get first place, no matter how many times I DP that song. "Add friends" they said... "Push yourself to better scores" they said... What for, SA? WHAT FOR?!

2023.04.01 13:31 Th3-One Anyone from the UK seen the latest Amazon TV advert?

Not mystery related but made me think and wish Rockstar created something more elaborate with another company for an in game Easter egg.
There is a song from Worldwide FM (will try and dig the name out) and there is a white yeti carrying an Amazon package through woodland, with mountains in the background.
Absolutely nothing, Iโ€™m sure, but love the idea that itโ€™s relatable.

2023.04.01 13:29 hpvdog HAPPY 10th BIRTHDAY WOLF ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

Personally my favourite album by Tyler, maybe even my favourite OAT. Something about the contrast in feel between songs sort of sews it together for me. E.G. Tamale and Domo23, both high energy and an experience live, vs something like Lone or Answer, two songs that never fail to make me feel sad lmao. I also think that this album has some great transitions into songs (specifically 48 into Colossus, like where do they change??) and is pretty nostalgic as this pretty much was the end of the OFWGKTA era. - sources of album covers

2023.04.01 13:29 Dom0852 AITA won't call dads wife mom

My (33f) parents (62f and 65 m) divorced 20 years ago. At 25 I left my home country to work abroad, and my dad met R (67f) within the same year. I got married to my husband (34m) 5 years ago, and we live in his home country. When our son was born almost 4 years ago, I gave R the title of grandmother to my child. 3 years ago, my dad and R got married. R has two children with her late husband, both in their 40s (m+f). Last year, Rs son had his first child and a month later we had our second. It was decided that my dad and R would travel to visit her son and then come to us on their way back in January. My dad and I share a passion for gardening, so I took him and R to see my local garden shop. I introduced one of the owners to my dad and R. My exact words were :"This is my dad, and his wife, R". All good, they exchange hellos and we leave. That night, after a few glasses of wine, R decided to tell me that she was hurt and offended by how I introduced her. Surprised by this I asked her to explain. She refused but also would not let it go. Eventually, she stated she wanted to be called mom. I tried to be nice and explain to her that this was not going to happen. I have a mom, and we are incredibly close. I told her that I believe I gave her a higher title, grandmother. This was not good enough and she pressed the issue, and eventually got onto wanting a higher title than my mom. Her reasoning: she can financially give my children more than either of my parents can. She is very wealthy, while my parents are not. I told her that my kids and I don't want or need her money. Again this wasn't good enough, and she would not let it go. It went around in circles for a few hours and a lot more was said regarding her relationship with her own mom and her daughter. I eventually went outside to cool down, as I had become increasingly agitated by all this and I was trying to keep the conversation respectful and find a resolution. There was none, as when I got back inside she had gone to bed. I had through this situation, asked my dad not to get involved, as this was an issue between her and I. He agreed she was out of line though. Things were obviously tense the rest of their visit, even though she claimed in private to my dad that she didnt remember anything. They left, and I haven't heard from her since. My dad and I are good, I apologized to him for my part in it all and anything said that hurt him. I plan to go home in about a month with my 2 kids. Ofourse I will see my dad and R, and I anticipate it being awkward. So this has been coming back to me a lot in the lead up to my trip. I wonder if this is a thing and if I'm being disrespectful. I have lost a lot of respect for R because of her bringing her money into things, but she is very good to my dad and brother who lives near them. So I wanted to know if IATA for refusing to give my dad's wife the title of mom (or higher)?

2023.04.01 13:29 marsmanofearth3000 Am i the jerk for calling the police on two girls that had been bullying me

this is an update to my last post, when i got them sent off school.
so these two girls had been sent off my school in my last post and have been harasing me at my house. somehow they got my adress and are now reguraly coming to my house. the last time that they came they threw a rock into my window. i kinda think it might have been better to deal with the bullying. but so my parents have called their parents and explaind that they had to pay for the damages or we would be calling the police. the convetation went like this, (for the sake of the story we will call my mom becky and the other mom karen)
becky: hello my name is becky do you have a minute
karen: yes i do why are you calling me
becky: your daughter has been harassing my son, thats also the reason your daughter got sent off school.
karen: my daughter would never do that!
becky: well she did and i need you to pay for the damages or we will sue you
karen: oh get over it, it cant be that bad.
becky: she threw a rock through our window.
karen: prove it. *hangs up*
so i had been listening in and had overheard the entire convesation. i cant believe that she could be such a karen. so now my dad is angry and he takes the phone from my mom and calles the karen back. now im not gonna quote what he said because it has a bunch of cuss words but i can give you the jif of what he said: he said that if she didnt emediatly come over to our house and pay he would be calling the police, he gives her our address and sure enough about 30 to 40 minutes later she comes up to our door and rings the doorbell. my dad is pissed and starts schreaming at her and her daughter saying that if she doent emeidiatly give the money he would call the police. i had already dialed 911 so all i had to do was press the call button on my phone, than the karen said: your bluffing. thats when i had enough. i schreamed through the hallway at this woman, saying that we werent bluffing and that i would call the cops, i show her my phone. than this karen smacked me and said: dont you dare talk to me like that. i had had enough i called the cops and sarah started pleeding with me to stop but i didnt. her mom said: come on my sweet baby lets go, my dad wanted to run after them but i asked him not to. of course i had the webcam and i had filmed the whole thing so when the cops got there i just showed them the footage. about three hours later we recieve money into our bank account that would be enough to fix our window, the police came by later and asked if we were going to press charges, we havent had any problams yet so we hope its over,
so am i the jerk for calling the cops on these karens

2023.04.01 13:28 SHOCKRZ_UNCHAINED i saw a bass guitar it is odd and I dont like it

[trigger warning - 6 string bass]
hi I really like to play the bass guitar and listen to music with a bass guitar.
i also really like pink ford and watch him live at pompeii , but saw something that made me want to say bad words like โ€œfrigg offโ€
david gibmore make music with a 6 string bass !?!? What the hell.
four string is enough there is no need for additional strings the unnecessary high pitch of them sound like the cloud bursts thunder bursting in your ear
the act of putting more flatworms on bass is like like spitting on a fan, a bass fan. how could he do this ? He has got to be crazy
no wonder roger warters told him โ€œgo away i donโ€™t like youโ€, although he not innocent too! he would sometimes let this 6 string basser record his bass parts for him!!! That is like trusting a dog with cow poo(my dog eat it ๐Ÿ™)
what are your pink floyd songs you like to play on the bass that give you joy?
Best wish(you were here)s, and Keep on bassinโ€™, bassers!

Background information- I (15F) live with my family (me, my mom (42F), my older sister (16F), and my younger brother (12M), and our 3 dogs mine my sister's and my brother's) my family has never been the therapy type especially my mom she's more of tell me what's wrong and once I know we won't talk about again and I'll just keep an eye on you till I forget type this is important for later. TW warning mentions of self harm, suicide, and blood. Sorry for any grammar or dialogue mistakes I'm righting this straight from my diary.
I get intrusive thoughts about hurting my self and the people around me my family, my friends, and my dog, for as back as I can remember I would get thoughts of hurting my self and my family sometimes it would feel like visions or image's of horrible things running through my mind it never really bothered me before because I knew I would never do anything and they were only bad thoughts and they would go away but they never did when I got to the 6th grade that's when I started to feel really depressed and angry and agitated because no one knew what was going on I started hurting my self and I tried to kill my self I would have to talk myself out of trying to hurt my family while they were sleeping I felt so alone and scared I would do something to the people I love. I really do love my family and friends but I keep getting these thoughts and it would get so bottled up that instead of hurting them I would hurt my self ( I won't go into detail about what I did / do but it would usually include drawing a significant amount of blood so that the urge to hurt them would pass). I've been hurting my self for almost 4 years now and two nights ago I tried to kill my self but like many failed attempts I woke up the next morning and since I can't seem to die I do the closest thing to it I sleep a lot more than I should like 16 hours+ I sleep so I don't have think about hurting people and so I don't hurt anyone I also sleep because it's the closest thing to being dead as I can get as of rn. I want to tell someone mainly my mom but I'm scared not because I think she'll put me in some psych ward or mental hospital but because I think she won't, not that I want to be away from home or my family I just think it's in my best interest because therapy didn't help although I only went for a short time I still lied about everything how I was feeling down to "I think I'm doing better" and this unhealthy crazy cycle that I've been on for the past 3-4 years isn't helping anything plus I can't get the proper help I need at home we all have so much on our plates as it is and I don't want to be the cause of more pain and suffering although I think that's inevitable whether I have to go one way or the other or they do and I can't live with myself if I did something to one of them it brews up so much to wear I have to hurt and isolate myself just to not hurt them and if I don't then I'm very angry and agitated and it feels like I'll explode at any given moment and do something I'll regret I know some of the self-harm comes from depression but a lot of it is from the intrusive thoughts and it's more than self-harm sometimes I starve myself most times it's unknowingly the most I've gone without eating a full or proper meal is a week and the most I've gone without eating anything at all is 3 days "I just forgot to eat" is what I tell myself and my family but I know it's more than that I really want to get the proper help but I know we can't afford it and it just feels like I'm in a never-ending loop. A few years back I once told my mom that I self-harmed we talked about it for that night and then after that I was just very closely watched that's what I went to therapy for the first time but that didn't last long as I stopped going in person and only went on the zoom and then slowly never went on zoom my mom watched me very closely she would wake me up if I slept in too long and then slowly she just forgot about it and we don't talk about it anymore. Note: I really do love my family I love them all more than I do myself my sister has personally saved my life a handful of times and when I got my dog (after my 14th birthday) she saved my life more times than I can even count on both hands that's why I just can't take it anymore because I've recently started getting more angry and agitated with her for no reason she's the one who always tries to lick my wounds literally and she deserves way more than an owner who just doesn't want to be here I love her so much she's the most important thing in my life. The only recollection I have a feeling grateful that I didn't die is the morning after my 14th birthday I had tried to kill myself that night and it didn't work ( I wasn't grateful immediately after) but I was very grateful two days later because that's when I met for the very first time a fat brindle red nose pitbull and I named her after all of my favorite things her name- Chunky (cuz she's fat) strawberry cream cheese cupcake pie (Brown is her last name) that is the only time I truly been grateful that I woke up. If it is well the story gives you the tiniest bit of insight on how much I love her. Sorry for the long not and story it's starting to turn into an essay if anyone reading this has any advice please let me know.

2023.04.01 13:27 RyanzRetroReviewz Ocean's Eleven - 1960 Film Review - RyanzRetroReviewz

Ocean's Eleven - 1960

Ocean's Eleven is a 1960 Capeheist movie starring Frank Sinatra and the rest of "The Rat Pack" (Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop), all brought together and directed by Lewis Milestone.
The movie takes us on a ride with "The Rat Pack" as they plan and carry out the robberies of not one, but five Las Vegas casinos all at the same time, midnight on New Year's Eve.
Need I say More?
Starting off with one of the coolest and most creative title sequences of the era, the first part of the movie focuses on Danny Ocean gathering up his old squad of army buddies for the heist, each of all who seem to be down on their luck since bravely serving their country in WWII, giving each a valid reason to join in on the job. The noble thief motif.
All along the way we're treated to some of that classic cool cat, rat pack style of comedy, as well as a full on musical number from Sammy Davis Jr., in that of the titular inspired song "E-O-Eleven", which also pops up in sprinkles in the background theme throughout the movie.
After the team is all assembled and the plan is laid out around the table (as was always done in the caper films of old), we begin to see the preparations and full on setting up of the heist, as well as some further character development for our few main stars (to further the plot), and not to mention another full on live performance, this time by Dean Martin with his signature hit "Ain't that a kick in the head".
Finally we jump right on into the heist itself, which is with out doubt one of the best robbery scenes in all of film, with the Ocean's Eleven cleaning out all 5 casinos in the time that it takes to sing "Auld Lang Syne" on the strike of the New Year.
But by morning the team now have to deal with not only the loss of one (from natural causes), but also have to dream up a way of sneaking all of the loot out of town, right from under the noses of both the police and a private security detective (slicky portrayed by the great Caeser Romero), who is also engaged to be married to one of the remaining team member's Mother.
This lead us to the big end scene, where the remaining "Ocean's Ten" are forced to sit and watch as the fruits of all of their labors go up in smoke.
A sad and somber ending showing the team now walking down the Vegas strip in the middle of the day with not a dime to their name, is lightened up somewhat by the soothing voice of Sammy singing us out, as the names of "The Rat Pack" are shown on a marquee (a very slick directorial move onto itself) followed by the rest of the film's cast and credits. "E-O-Elevennnnnnnnnnn"!
With an ensemble cast of some of the greatest stars of their day (featuring guest cameos from George Raft, Red Skelton and Shirley MacLaine), all filmed in their natural environment of Las Vegas showrooms and all rounded together by a great director in Lewis Milestone, this movie is a must watch for fans of not only Heist films, but for fans of "The Rat Pack" and the good old days of post-WWII entertainment in general.
* (A quick note on the colorization of this movie; With seeming to make the environment come alive more, and add to the festive season in which the movie is set, I personally prefer and would recommend this movie IN COLOUR to viewers, as opposed to the original black and white version, which was only made as such on the count of financial purposes and not purist purposes).
And that's all she wrote folks. Thanks for reading.

2023.04.01 13:26 Full-Cod-4763 Just a question

Is it really right to leave your child for the sake of God? Because my dad is an atheist, I decided as well to become an atheist, well I didnโ€™t become an atheist because my dad is an atheist, but rather, I became an atheist because I questioned my faith, I started to think rationally and critically, and my mom plans to abandon me and dad, and she keeps saying, God will kill my dad and Iโ€™ll become miserable, it just scares me how she thinks like this for us

2023.04.01 13:26 Clearstawberry Can my boss really ask me that?

Can my boss ask me if there is something wrong with baby to warrant restrictions?
Hey moms, I am at a loss for words here. I am 36 +5 and work as a nurse in critical care setting that can involve some heavy lifting. I have discussed with my coworkers that I do not feel comfortable moving patients that are over 300 lbs and or transporting them to various areas of the hospital. My coworkers were all on my side and would help me out. Then my boss comes up to me in front of 7 coworkers and says where is your work note for the restrictions you claim to have. And then goes on to ask if there is something medically wrong with my baby or myself. I do not think asking for a work note to be inappropriate but I feel like she should not of asked this in front of my other coworkers. Maybe I am extra sensitive with pregnancy hormonesโ€ฆ.what do you guys think? For context: I live in the US. In the Midwest

2023.04.01 13:25 ManicSheep The white lie that led to my 'exorcism'

Obligatory Precursor: This happened 15 years ago in my final year of high school. It was an event that changed my view on life and still haunts me to this day.
Some background: In my country, they took Christianity seriously. You were raised Christian, at school, we had Bible lessons/ scripture readings every morning before class started and your social life pretty much revolved around the church. When this event occurred, I was a youth leader in my church and even had a key to open the church every Friday evening and Sunday. I was a pretty awkward kid though; a bit weird and perhaps a little eccentric. So didnโ€™t have that many friends in school (2 to be exact). Was a real social outcast back then. We also lived about 60 km away from school and I had to wait 4 to 5 hours after school for my mom to pick me up so we could go home. All these facts will be important for later.
So there were a bunch of things that happened leading up to the event.
It all started in January of my final year in high school. As last year students we had slightly more โ€˜privilegesโ€™ than all the other students. For one, every Monday morning we would all meet in a big Hall for Bible reading and the announcements for the week. Here all the younger students would sit on the icy cold floor at the bottom, and the final year students (and the very few girls) would sit in on chairs at the top of the gallery overlooking the big Hall. This was always made out to be a major privilege. We also had a choice to attend sports events like rugby or athletics (where for the younger students, it was obligatory).
One of the major sporting events at the beginning of the year was this inter-high school athletics competition. On one day in January, all the schools in the area would compete against each other to find the best athletes so they could be nominated to represent the area in provincial competitions. At these competitions, all the students from each school would need to attend as 'spectators'. Final-year students had a choice of whether or not they wanted to go. However, this year this event was moved to another school and there wasn't enough space for each school's entire populous. Therefore only the first-year and final-year students were 'forced' to go. Given that final-year students always had a choice in the past, and that this event was on a and my two friends (Let's call them Dr Dre and The Wizard) decided to stay at home on that day and make a long weekend out of it.
Dr Dre was the only 'normal' one in my little group of friends. Dr Dre was really into rap music, he had good relationships with the teachers, all the different clicks of students (from the jocks to the geeks) liked him and he was overall a really decent kid (very wise and intelligent for his age). The Wizard, on the other hand was a very tall, blond Dutch boy that was into bizarre things. People found him to be extremely weird but didn't pick on him. He liked catching mice in the field, skinning them, and making stuff from their skins. He was (in his own mind) into wizardry (he identified as a dark wicca - dark witch). He was just overall very weird.
Anyway, the Monday morning after the athletics event, my two friends and I went to the big hall for the daily weekly Bible lesson and announcements as was customary. We sat at the top of the gallery and waited for the 'plebs' to fill the hall at the bottom. When everyone took their seats, two prefects (student leaders) came to the gallery and said that everyone that wasn't at the event on Friday would need to sit at the bottom with the plebs for the rest of the year. Apparently, they handed out little cards on Friday and well, we didn't have them... So my friends and I awkwardly stood up and made out way down the stairs. Halfway down, I told them that it was bullshit that we had to go sit with the 'kids'. The Wizard then said : "I say we just go sit outside the hall and refuse to go in... Make a statement".
At the time, we thought it was a good idea and went to go sit outside. About 15 mins later, a prefect (student leader) came to ask us why we were sitting outside. I responded, "it's none of your business" and he proceeded to go call one of the teachers. Our mathematics teacher (a short, mid-40s balding Greek man) came outside and asked why we were sitting there.... Without thinking, The Wizard said : "It's against our religion". The teacher asked what religion it was and we didn't respond. He turned around and walked away.We didn't mention which religion we were and at the time, we thought it was a brilliant response.
Later the day, we were in our homeroom class. The intercom went off (it broadcasts over the entire school), and an old woman's voice asked The Wizard, Dr Dre and I to go to the principal's office. Obviously the story had already spread across the entire school and everyone knew what this was about. We went to his office and sat on the old wooden benches in in front of his door. Dr Dre was the first to be asked to go in. Ten mins later, he comes out and returns to class. The Wizard and I were then asked to come in together.
The principal asked us to sit down and proceeded to ask us to explain the situation. Not willing to give up on the jig... We proceeded to stick to our story. He then asked if we were Satanists. The Wizard then responded and said something that would put me on a path prolonged psychological trauma. The Wizard said.... Yes. (Although he obviously wasn't). The principal then proceeded to ask questions why and how and when... It felt like we were sitting there for hours. The Wizard said that he was in it for power and control.. (All the time I'm thinking... WTF Dude!). I was quite throughout the entire session.. Mostly because I was afraid but primarily because I was shocked of the things that came out of his mouth. Around an hour later, we were asked to leave and return to class... And I thought the situation was resolved...
The next day at 7am all the students lined up in the quad as we always did from Tuesday till Friday. The principal did his Bible reading and the did his announcements. His final announcement sent shivers down my spine. He said that he made it his mission to destroy the satanic rituals and satanists in the school. At this stage it felt like all the students heads turned towards me.
With the 'extra' incentive, most students started to bully me, and I was consistently made fun of. Given that both Dr Dre and The Wizard were mucho gym junkies, no one picked on them... So I took the brunt of the students' and teachers' wrath. This went on for about 3 months. By the end of the three months, people already forgot that Dr Dre and The Wizard were involved in the matter... And I was basically now labelled as the school demon.... The face of the 'satanic cult' in the school. Already an outcast, my life was now an absolute living hell... The smart-ass remark to get us not to sit at the bottom of the hall, had now turned into a life of constant physical and psychological torture (from students and teachers).
Although I kept telling everyone that I wasn't a satanist and it was The Wizard lying to get us out of sitting with the younger students, no one believed me. Everything 'weird' that happened at the school was now always made out to be my fault. I even talked to the principal and even had my pastor from the church phone him. But nothing ever came of it. I just wanted the torture to stop, but no one would believe me.
So this brings me to D-day. The last Friday of the semester, the school came out at 11:00 (it usually came out at 14:00). Although the school was out and everyone was on their way home for the start of the summer vacation, I still had to stay at school till around 17:30 for my mom to come pick me up after work so we could go home. Around 11:30 the school was empty and I went to sit under my usual tree and entertained myself with SNAKE on my Nokia 5110.
Mid-game I saw the vice principal and the teacher that was in charge of religious studies walk up to me. They asked very politely if I wanted to take a ride with them. I declined, saying that my mom would be here at any moment to pick me up. The vice principal said he already spoke to my mom (which turned out to be a lie!) and she would only be there around 18:00. Fair enough. He caught me out in my BS excuse, and given that that was the usual time she would pick me up... I didn't think to question it further.
We walked to his car and I asked where we were going. He said he wanted to introduce me to 'a friend' of his. We climbed into his car and drove about 15 mins to a church. I knew the church because that was where the school's Minister (kinda like a priest) worked. This Minister was big and wobbly... And looked as if he could afford to skip a few meals. A pudgy fellow with rosy cheeks, a massive belly and this weird blueish-grey eyes that always seemed as if they stared through you when he looked at you. Let's call him Minister Bear.
So we get there and I felt my heart sink into my shoes. I knew where this was going. I was escorted around the church and led into a darkish room at the back of the building. As my eyes adjusted from the bright sun, to the darkish room, I saw Minister Bear, sitting behind his antique yellow wood desk. He welcomed my two teachers, stood up, and walked around the desk. As his friendly eyes move slowly away from my teachers, towards me... It systematically turned into this deep look of concern and fear. He locked the door next to me and said in a deep serious voice, "I feel a very dark presence in this room". And thanked my teachers for bringing me there.
He told my teachers to sit in the corner and ushered me to a chair in front of his desk. He sat down and proceeded to ask me a bunch of personal questions. It started innocent enough, like who I was and where I lived, through to have I ever had sex and if I'm gay (a taboo subject where I was from). The questions became ever darker and each time I would answer he would tell my teacher's "This isn't ManicSheep talking".
He then asked me if I was a satanist, to which I responded with a clear NO! I told him I was a youth leader in my church and that he could phone my pastor to ask. He would then respond by saying things like "Don't lie to me demon! Release this child of God ". The more I woud deny his claims, the more he would tell my teacher's that they needed to pray because the demon has a very strong hold over me.
This went on for about 2 hours. I looked at my watch and it was already 14:30. He would ask me what the demon in me's name was and how many of them were in me. I kept denying it and eventually burst out in tears, begging him to let me go. He said to my teachers that this was the demons way to want to escape, that he was getting closer to getting 'them' to release me. He asked me about satanist rituals and between every question he would ask... He would pray under his breath. No matter how much I cried, he didn't want to stop. I stood up and screamed that I am going to phone the police and ran to the door... Tried to open it... Shakes the handle... But the door was locked.
"You won't escape this room with this child l, demon" he would yell. I fell on the ground crying, saying my mom was looking for me and I just wanted to go home. At this stage, he picked me up with both hands and held me in the air. He pushed me against the wall and started praying louder. As I struggled to get free he yelled for my teachers to come put their hands on me and pray .. As the demons were loosing Control.
I was afraid for my life. As a kid of 17, I didn't know what was going on. I remember thinking about how can they feel a dark presence as I spend all my time at church. Why don't they want to phone my pastor? Why won't they believe me.
At this stage I realized that the only way out of this was to act out the role they clearly wanted me to play. That would be the only way out of the locked room. I tried to pull my tears back and looked him in the eyes.. And tried to push the quiver in my voice down. "OK you got me Minister." I said." You can have the child". He immediately dropped me and took a couple of steps back.
He started repeating the questions from earlier and told my teachers to pray harder as we were now getting to the crux of the matter. They needed to 'cast him out'. I kept responding to the questions in the way I thought they wanted. I then started speaking German backwards as they started praying harder. At this stage I just wanted to get out of there.
After what felt like years, they finally stopped and I fell to the ground. Minister Bear said... It's done. Laying on the ground, the tears again started balling out my eyes (this time out of total relief). They asked me how I felt and I couldn't stop crying. I just wanted to go home. I lied again and said I felt relieved and lighter and was unsure what was going on or how I got there.
The Minister then told me I was possessed by a series of demons (I can't remember the name he gave it) and that they were holding on deeply to my soul. That it took hours for them to cast them out. But I am free now, and that is why I felt so light and that crying is normal. He prayed one more time and gave me his number. He told me to come see him next week and that I should phone him if I feel something is coming back.
They finally unlocked the door. I stood there silently, not knowing if I was actually free to go. Still shaking I looked at my watch... It was 17:45 and I knew my mom was waiting for me at school. The teachers then asked if it was OK to go. They then took me back to the school and dropped me off at my mom's car.
I climbed in and burst into tears. My mom asked what was wrong and I explained. She then told me that I probably just misunderstood what was going on and that she would speak to the principal. Nothing ever came of this.
This was by far one of the most traumatic events in my life. Although I know I contributed to the situation, 15 years later, as a trained and registered psychologist, the matter still haunts me...

2023.04.01 13:25 Reythegreat72 What do I do to help my mom

Hi, I (15M) live with my mom (49F) and my dad (51M). Both of them are working full time in good administrative positions.
In my country it is common to have someone called "the help", think of them like a nanny who comes in not for taking care of the kids but cooks, cleans and leaves. Well recently he resigned so now my mom has been cooking breakfast and dinner and cleaning for all of us. My dad hasnt been helping at all. And ive brought this up with both my mom and dad about how unfair this is and that the division of labour should be equal inside the house as well but both of them seem fine with how things are going rn. Like my mom also is not visibly uncomfortable and has stated to me that she is fine working extra inside. Should I help her still? Not sure what to do. Btw im not a feminist just believe in gender equality so I decided to ask here. Sorry for the mistakes english isnt my first language.
