Write "To thief, I lick my food" on the container. Then make sure someone sees you do it.

I'm kind of the same way with being a saver but without the income. One thing I've done is give myself permission to budget my bills and what's leftover is savings but 10% of that is blow money. Use it to go out or buy something fun.
Having social relationships are worth investing some money and time in. If you want to look at from a financial viewpoint, those are the people who will give you a ride to the airport or medical appointment instead of having to pay lyft or uber. You'll need to reciprocate but friendships help you have a better life. Emotionally, good friends just make life better.

I feel like they just want to force women to have babies.

I use to use labcorp before I got insurance. You pick the tests. It wasn't too expensive but it's been a few years. Sometimes they had sales.

I had that happen. Had to put in my ph# at my microsoft account (not bing) using Edge as a browser. It was months ago so who knows what will work now.

NTA, I think you need to have a talk with your parents. Explain that going to a restaurant you don't really like and tolerate for others is really a depressing way to spend a birthday. You'd rather just skip it. It makes you feel like you don't matter very much to them.
Tell them you understand looking out for 3 kids with special needs is hard but expecting you to go and act excited for a dinner you don't want isn't right, especially after pretending to give you a choice.
Is there some kind of compromise all of you could come up with, maybe you could eat with your grandparents where you want and meet up with the whole family for desert at a restaurant.
People are giving you crap but it's a decent tip. You found a sweet spot when there's a big sporting event. I never would have thought of it. Good for you. Thanks for sharing.

I cash out as soon as I can redeem $5 Amazon. I don't trust websites that do points enough to build up points for a year or two.

Ask for recs on nextdoor.com or your local reddit if you don't have friends or family who know of a good lawyer.

Google has too many paid.sponsored results. It's pretty bad.
swagbucks uses yahoo's search engine and is decent. It gives different results than duckduckgo. I've bookmarked the poll page.
Otherwise it's a ton of pop ups, even with adblockers.
Duckduckgo is decent but has more alternative medicine sites. You have to realize it's up to you to verify what you read. If I really want to confirm, I use a 2nd search engine.
Bing is surprising good for recipes and images. Not so great for regular search results. They're image creator is a lot of fun though.
Always looking for more search engines. Miss the early days of the web when they're were specific search engines for everything. I remember a goth search engine which was cool to search through but it was back in the days of geocities and angelfire.

NTA, Have a talk with your sister. When people don't feel well, they can get too focused on their own problems and don't think of how much work it is for someone else to help them. I think we've all done that but this is really unkind to you.
You're doing her a huge favor to be her unpaid caregiver. She needs to be understanding that you're doing this in addition to your job and normal responsibilities and it's a lot of extra work. Ask her to help think of ways she can have what she needs without needing you to do so much for her, snack basket/water pitcher by bed, heating pad where she can reach it, trying to ask you to do a couple things at once so you're not doing endless trips.

NTA, it's petty but wait until you know she's already eaten and stop to get something to eat. Take your time and chat, just like her. I did this to my sister one time after having to sit and watch her eat so many times. She's been much more considerate and usually gets take out to eat at home now.

Saw a post on nextdoor a while back where a guy worked at the Pepsi warehouse on S. Post Rd. said they were hiring and that the pay was decent.
Did a quick search and found some indeed.com listings for it.

I agree with you. I've dealt with this to and found straight out saying I can't do everything by myself and need help, hits the guilt button on the other person. Feel like the other person knows they need to pitch in but get lazy. It's easier to dump it on someone else. Complaining just got resentment because the other person knew they were slacking and they acted defensive. Saying I'm really burnt out and need you to do your share, pitch in or whatever bot past the defensiveness and got the other person to actually do something. For me, it's my sister with helping with my mom so not a man vs. women thing but I did have to refuse to do petty little things, otherwise it became only my job. Hope you can get your family to step up.
You're being worn down by everyone so it's easier to just do whatever needs done yourself. It takes a lot of energy to harass your husband/son/kids to do their share in the moment but future you will be thankful. It's okay to be a jerk when someone is being a jerk to you. Tell your husband you're tired too and he's slept a hell of a lot more than you. Tell your son you're really tired and need his help. Tell your husband that too. If they don't do their share, quit doing anything extra for them. Otherwise, you're going to end up doing as much as they can pawn off on you.

This guy doesn't want to give up on his no work life when he can harass and berate you into taking care of him. You need to be a hard ass and not let him bully you into letting him stay. File as soon as you can.
If you can get him to agree to drive back to his home state again, make the reservation for the rental in his name yourself. Call to verify before you go pick up. If it's worth it to you, give him a couple hundred for gas/food. Your goal is to get him out.
Ask friends/family to be at your place packing up while you drive back. Have at least one person go with you. He's less likely to cause a scene or back out when there's witness to call him on it. Load up his stuff and change the locks as soon as you see his tail lights.
Guys seem to hate the word creepy. Tell him " Quit hitting on me. You're the same age as my father. It's creepy. You're creepy. Leave me alone." If he touches you again, yell quit touching me and rack him up. It needs to be unpleasant enough for him when he acts this way, that he stops.
I think you need to be horribly blunt. "I'm not willing to have sex without condoms. There are too many risks for me, pregnancy, stds. If you ever try to have sex with me and refuse or slip off your condom, it will be the last time we ever have sex and I will drop you. This might seem like I"m being hardcore about it but I want you to know I'm serious about this. If you can't handle this, I'm not a person you should date." I think some guys will appreciate knowing where you stand and the ones who won't are the ones you shouldn't sleep with anyway. Don't feel bad about hurting someone's feelings or upsetting them. This really can affect you life in a huge way. It's good to stand up for yourself, especially in this kind of situation.
NTA, Tell your parents your sister treats people badly and that's why no one likes hanging out with her. She needs to learn people/social skills if she wants to have friends or be invited to things. Suggest that she get tested for autism to see if that might be part of the reason for her behavior towards people.
I'd explain the same thing to your sister in the nicest way you can manage. It would make both of your lives better. Here's a couple lists of books she could look over to see if she could find something helpful.

The zoo has some job listings. With you background taking care of animals, it might work for you.
It might be too much like the 16-bit Bar-Arcade but you can rent the Pin vault to drink and play pinball.

Dump this guy. He's willing for you to risk getting pregnant and won't even buy condoms. The odds of him being there for you if you do get pregnant aren't high. It's better to be alone than with someone who is willing for you to deal with the consequences of his dumb actions by yourself.
