2022.01.17 01:20 Lieutenant_Buzzkill I put in my two weeks at Kroger, and suddenly my grievances are being addressed
I've posted about working at Fred Meyer before on this sub, and my general dislike for it. Kroger seems to be one of the most disliked companies on here, which is definitely understandable.
Well, I've been in the deli for 8 months, and I recently discovered people who I've trained are making more than me. Between that, not getting enough hours, shitty working conditions, and keeping me at the lowest tier of benefits even though I put in more hours than people higher up than me, I decided I was done. I closed the department on Friday, and left a two weeks notice. The only reason I left a two weeks instead of just quitting was because my direct supervisor, my department manager, is a great boss who doesn't have control over my issues. She's supposed to go on vacation next week after three months of 70 hour weeks, and I didn't wanna quit and make her feel like her department was short staffed while she was on vacation, because knowing her, she'd cancel the vacation and work.
I had Saturday off, but when I came back today for my shift, HR was waiting for me.
"Lieutenant_Buzzkill, where are you going in two weeks?"
I didn't have a new job lined up and was just gonna wing it, so I was honest and said I didn't know yet.
"Could I save you from leaving if I move you from the deli to pickup?" (I've been asking for this for three months and have been told the department is full and won't take new employees)
"Well HR, the department isn't the biggest reason I'm leaving, it's also lack of advancement opportunities and-"
"Ok, we can talk about this later, find me before you leave today"
Ok, whatever. I was expecting her to dodge me, but before I clocked out I tracked her down and we talked.
To my surprise, she's supposedly going to put in a request that I get Journeyman's pay (15.75/hr, up from my 12.85), and transfer me to pickup while making sure my benefits are increased.
I'm not holding my breath on any of this, because it's still Kroger we're talking about. But I'm surprised she's even putting in the effort to keep me around. Only regret is that I didn't say I had a job lined up paying 17/hr.
Mods can remove this if it doesn't fit, but I figured a (smallish) success story might be a good fit for this sub.

2022.01.17 01:20 Electrical_Sleep5376 How accurate is the info you receive in the beginning?
On Tuesday, 2-year old and 4-month old brothers will be placed with us. They're coming from a previous foster placement who disrupted because the 2-year old was "prone to violence with other kids and also tortures animals." Honestly, that sounds so implausible for a two-year-old- or rather- it seems very typical for hitting/biting/inability to control a body to be an issue at that age, and I couldn't imagine any type of behavior of a 25 month old being described as "prone to violence" or torture. I do know there's also an autism evaluation requested for him. I do think I'll keep a closer eye on the baby and my dog, and have a period of observation- I'd never let animals and young kids together without very close supervision anyway. But I struggle to think someone got this right.
For the four month old, there's a breathing diagnosis (tracheomalacia), that the caseworker was pretty nonchalant about "just put a humidifier in his room" and reading up on it, it does seem like it can be no big deal- that it often improves on its own as kids grow and needs no intervention, but it can also be life-threatening and anything to do with infants and breathing sounds pretty scary. He'll be switching pediatricians, since they're coming from a city about a four-hour drive away. Would you just follow case notes here, and do nothing more than a humidifier? Should I push for an immediate evaluation since I am not entitled to his hopsital records and can't speak with his current providers? I just don't want to endanger him (which frankly, a hospital visit at this point in the pandemic, and the very heightened chance of respiratory infection that would risk...), well I'm just not sure what the right thing is.

2022.01.17 01:20 SpeakeasyImprov Profile: Capitán Nazca
| Capitán Nazca|
Codename: Capitán Nazca
Real Name: Sandro Pena
Occupation: Electrical engineer, ufologist
History: The Nazca Lines were constructed around 2000 years ago by the native people there, except one. This particular petroglyph had always puzzled archeologists, as it was constructed centuries later and, while others resemble animals or plants, this one was a series of strange geometric shapes.
Sandro Pena, an amateur ufologist, believed strongly that this one petroglyph was of extraterrestrial origin, and he dedicated much of his life attempting to uncover its secrets. He had a habit of excitedly talking about his research and UFO phenomena with anyone, regardless of their interest level.
He was laughed at by his peers, but after the First Aldebaran Invasion, Pena felt vindicated and returned to his efforts with renewed vigor. Comparing markings seen on some Aldebaran craft, Pena concluded that this petroglyph was the equivalent of writing “Help” in large rocks on a desert island. It was an SOS signal from a downed craft that had long gone unheeded.
Investigating the site further, he found the craft and explored it. Inside he discovered an intact terraformer rig—a fantastic piece of alien technology which used energy fields to move large swaths of earth and rock.
Soon Pena was able to modify the rig to run on Earth power sources. Believing that Earth might still be a target for alien invasion, he fashioned the identity of Capitán Nazca and began making a name for himself as a geo-kinetic superhero.

2022.01.17 01:20 VinoPino12 Giving hinge a shot. What do you think of the app overall?
33 year old male here living in LA who had little to no success with tinder and okc. Not sure if my pics were terrible and/or that I am being phased out on search links as a 5-6 Filipino male. Just signed up for hinge on Xmas eve and used a different set of pictures this time around. I also like the feature of being able to make short and witty comments on someone's profile. What do you guys think of that particular feature? Did you find this app better than than others or just the same?

I've had blurry doubled vision since last summer and finally get to see an eye surgeon tomorrow. My optometrist referred me to the surgeon and said I might get passed on to a cornea specialist.
I'm both scared and relieved the day is almost here. I hope she knows what the hell is goung on. Wish me luck please!

2022.01.17 01:20 Glooomed any vegans/mostly plant based individuals with ileostomies here?
I find it difficult to justify consuming animals and would like to one day become as vegan as is possible for someone like me. I have tried several times over the years and always stop because of the sheer amount of times I have to use the bathroom. Like it disrupts my sleep lol. Just wondering if this is the case for others as well, or if there is a work around? Is it just what comes with eating so much fibre?
