2021.12.01 22:03 Zote-The-Smexy So does McVries love Garraty?
Just finished my 5th reading of the book and once again my favorite relationship is that between Garraty and McVries. And it just keeps puzzling me what the nature of McVries affection is.
I am reminded of the relationship in All Quiet on the Western Front, a book remarkably similar to the long walk now that I think about it, between the protagonist Baumer and Katczinsky.
In that novel, they also show great affection toward one another as they go through hell and back but it is never suggested to be a sexual attraction.
However, the similar dynamic in TLW does have such clues (in my opinion). Many times McVries states that he finds Ray attractive even once going as far as to say he would screw him. He also throughout the book is shown using what can only be described as pet names for Ray. He consistently uses flowery romantic language toward him in contrast to his sardonic tone with the rest of the boys. But the line that clinches it for me is not from McVries but Stebbins.
Toward the 2/3 mark of the book he interrupts a conversation between Ray and McVries and says, “you got to second base, wanna try for third.” Now, this is likely a metaphor for courting. And if it was any other character I would dismiss it as ribbing. But Stebbins consistently knows what the other walkers are thinking. He references Garraty’s dreams and just seems to be a bit “Shiny” (thank you to pat coston for the Shining connection).
So what do you think? Am I reading too much into some ambiguous lines or is there a case for bisexual McVries?

2021.12.01 22:03 dumn_and_dunmer Walmart!
submitted by dumn_and_dunmer to antiwork [link] [comments]
I got hired to Walmart for the infant and young girls sections in November of 2007 as my first job as a 21 yr old. I worked there for 9 months. Great benefits. Got a raise every 4 months! Amazing! This is the not so great stuff I had to put up with in exchange for that: The anti-union video. All new hires had to watch it and pass a test. It was borderline satirical. My hire mate was a recently widowed elderly woman who applied because she was lonely. Even she laughed at it. She quit after three days and when I asked her what had happened, she said the managers made fun of her for not understanding the telxon gun and for being scared of heights when she got up on a ladder. This lady was at least 80. She said she felt old and stupid. I got hired close to Xmas and one of the lead managers under the store manager was an absolute Tuesday Rendezvous. Please know that I am in no way downplaying this or exaggerating at all. She sat us all down in a meeting and told us straight to our faces: “I don’t care what’s happening with your families. I don’t care if someone is sick. I don’t care if it’s your grandma’s last Christmas. You come in to work when we need you. You signed up to work here and that’s what you’re going to do. I still came in the day my mother died. No excuses. I will not be approving time off after (date). Is this clear?” We were all just silent and stunned. A woman in the back was going through a well known struggle with her mother receiving chemo. A married couple that both worked there had a daughter that was in bad health (I know this because several people mentioned it in disgust during the first break after the meeting). Nobody said anything at the time but all the other managers looked very pale suddenly. Long story short, she was not fired but certain exemptions were made for certain employees when asked. One time a child cut himself on the packaging of a toy in the baby dept. There was blood everywhere. The boy was alright but another dept manager tending to the situation wouldn’t let me do a biohazard claims ticket on the blood-smeared packaging. She told me to just wipe it off and put it back on the shelf. I waited til she left and called my actual dept manager over and told her what happened. She didn’t say anything, but took the toy and left. I never found out what happened. They told us that the loss amount from shoplifting came out of our Christmas bonuses to get us to stop shoplifters. Something we were expressly told not to fucking do in safety training. One manager came back and chewed me out because he found an empty package in my section and wanted to know why I had missed the act. While I was zoning my OTHER section. With my supervisor. Who was right beside me. She laid into him in mama bear mode and ratted him out to a higher up and he never spoke to me again. It was the only time I ever saw anything done. A car caught fire in the parking lot. The store manager, a solid dude named Mikey, went out and successfully battled the flames with a fire extinguisher! I got sent out by the fitting room ladies to make sure it wasn’t towards the back with our cars. It was awesome! He said he got in trouble for calling 911 before alerting home office. He laughed about it a lot when he told us the story. He always thanked employees personally for coming in during dangerous weather. I liked him. He hated his job and it finally got to him I guess. He took his own life several years ago. I cried when I saw it on Facebook. I know that’s a bummer but I just wanted ppl to know about him. My friend, Blue, started working there shortly after I did. His entire family were the hippie spiritual types and he had been growing out his hair since he was a kid. The hiring manager told him he had to cut it. He was sad but really needed the job and figured he’d have to do it eventually, anyway. He cut his hair and got the job! Come to find out he did not need to cut his hair. At all. We had several male workers with long hair. That hiring manager was just a bitch that thought it looked inappropriate. My mom had a horrible problem with addiction to drugs and alcohol and she was not long for this world towards the end of that year. We all knew it. We were having a family reunion because of this. My mom promised to stay sober for the whole weekend. I would only need to miss one day. I asked off and told them the reason. They said no (“During Inventory?!”). I went anyway. It was priceless and I got to see my real mom again (albeit miserable and in pain) and she died a few weeks later from liver failure, just short of her birthday. I got to be there for that because Walmart had me sign the papers saying I NCNS and they “needed my signature so we can give you your final check.” I was young and tired and let them do that to me. Shitty. Are things still this horrible there? I hope not. But I wouldn’t be surprised.

My tenants called me a few days ago saying they couldnt make rent for a few months due to them both quitting their jobs. I already had an appraisal lined up and decided after hearing the appraisal I just want to sell. While I was in there with the appraiser i noticed many issues. They have more kids in the house then disclosed. Marijuana stench (im pro weed but its illegal here and they said they were not smokers), cigarette stench. And now they said they cannot make rent. I notified them they could stay the month but had to leave Jan 1st. They are very upset with the for sale sign and the lining up showings because they dont want to vacate during those times. In the contract it states that I only need to give them 24 hours notice to show the property to potential buyers, appraisers etc . Tonight they text me saying a realtor entered the house without them noticing and putting their card on the counter. Wont show the card and no one has access to the lockbox anyways so Im certain its a lie. What would you do ?

I haven’t had any issues with H3VR completely locking up my PC until recently. I was on the alpha build channel, but turning that off gave me the same crashes. It just completely freezes my PC, no BSOD or anything, it just goes unresponsive and after 5 minutes or so my monitors auto power off. It does not give me any sort of error message.

Is there any merrit to combining groups of subs with destroyers or light cruisers? Their AA and Surface detection would certainly help protect your subs from escorts/aircraft. Could be be made fairly cheaply as well.

2021.12.01 22:03 Mjolnir2109 Need help with min/max endgame Skele Mage bossing build
I'm having a hard time figuring out how to get accurate PoB numbers for comparing two variations of Skele mages. I'm hoping more knowledgeable people here will be able to assist. I'm trying to decide between continuing to use Fleshcrafter, or switch to a Hunter chest with +1 curse. My AG has a +1 curse chest, and ele weakness on hit gloves, I currently use Snipers Mark, but I will also be adding Punishment if I switch to Hunter chest. I feel like adding two curses should result in better DPS than Fleshcrafter. But I can't seem to find a way to simulate ignoring resists, and also a way to simulate dps numbers once the boss is on low life, since Punishment causes them to take 80% increased damage.

2021.12.01 22:03 Ok_Pause4482 Link's Possible Weapons in a Hyrule Warriors game w/ Legend of Zelda x Soul Calibur V
Link could use different swords (in his left hand) AND different shields (horizontally carried on his right arm). The Master Sword's gotta be his main weapon again (but first, it's gotta be earned in a story-related scenario where he finds the sacred sword in the woods again), but used w/ the Skyward Sword Hylian Shield (the shield on his right arm). He's gotta be the main protag AND the first playable fighter. Weapon names like Excalibur, Caliburn, Dainsleif, Laevatein, Fragarach, Claiomh Solais, Tizona, Durandal, Tyrfing (Sigurd AND Seliph's Tyrfing, but w/ the hexagonal blade section), Balmung, Caladbolg, Lionheart, Kusanagi, Totsuka, Crocea Mors, AND Falchion (Marth's Archanean Falchion, but w/ the hexagonal blade section).
