A lot of people don't know how to cook or season vegetables apart from steaming them, maybe with a little salt or butter/oil. Steaming is easy to overdo, and works best with very fresh seasonal veggies - anything that is frozen, canned, or even just spent more than a few days on the shelf will most likely wind up mushy and unappealing. Learn how to grill, roast, or even fry different vegetables, try out different seasonings or sauces, and be amazed at the horizons of deliciousness ten-year-old you never knew existed.
EDIT: Apparently this is a sore subject with some people! You *PROBABLY* don't hate vegetables, but individual tastes and physiologies differ of course. No one should ever be harassed over allergy or sensory processing issues. The point is to learn to cook things different ways before you write them off. Sorry that people have given you a hard time about this, but if your reply begins with "my mom/dad/wife/etc does know how to cook" and not "I know how to cook" then the source of the issue is pretty clear.
EDIT 2: Holy crap, that's a lot of awards. Thank you all, and I discovered the real LPT, which is that people with food limitations know exactly what does and doesn't work for them and often share lovely tips for alternative ingredients and techniques, while picky eaters tell you to f--- off.
Unless you’ve worked in home repair or computers/tech, chances are you don’t have the different types of these items memorized. If you bring it to the store, the employees can not only help you find the same one, but can even help you identify more efficient bulbs, better made cables, more versatile adapters, etc.
These can help save you money, work for their intended purpose for much longer, and just save you the headache and worry of buying the wrong products.
ETA: this works for auto parts and machinery as well as a lot of other things, this isn’t just for bulbs and cables.
I had a phone interview scheduled this morning, but accidentally slept through it. When I got up and saw that I missed it, I had the desperate urge to call and offer up excuses, in the hope that maybe, just maybe, they'd be understanding and give me another chance.
Instead, all I did was apologize and ask if we could reschedule. That's it, one sentence, no additional information, no explanation or excuse as to why I missed the first interview.
They replied within 20 minutes, apologizing to ME, saying it was probably their fault, that they'd been having trouble with their computer system for days, and of course I could reschedule, was I available that afternoon?
Don't ever volunteer information, kids. You never know what information the other party has, and you can always give information if asked for it later.
Edit: I still get notifications when people comment. Keep them coming, I'm glad I've helped you out :)
Music helps dementia patient recall memories and emotions. Especially when specific songs are connected to previous parts of their lives.
Every once in a while we come across someone who might prompt us with hate or dislike whenever they behave in a certain way that rubs us off the wrong way. It could be because they're being insensitive, rude, overbearing, and so on...
But it may be beneficial to remember that something could have happened in their lives that made them the person they are. They're being insensitive? It's likely they weren't paid much attention to by people who are supposed to be close to them in their lives so they don't know how not to be. They're being aggressive and controlling? Perhaps life has knocked them down many times so the only way they can get up to face the world is by behaving that way. They're being inconsiderate? Perhaps they've tried being not to, but life made it so that they were disadvantaged because of it.
Or they could have had a bad day, bad week, bad year and you would have no idea what the world has presented to them. Often times, people are who they are because the world made them to be so and there is no one single person to blame.
But thinking this way doesn't mean that you have to be their saviour and persist in taking in their negative behaviors, should there be any. Thinking this way doesn't stop you from distancing yourselves away from them if need be, not due to hate or dislike, but rather with empathy and compassion from a distance.
This only affects the display on your browser, but it's a simple way to bypass the infuriating "create an account" or GTFO situation on shitty websites when you just need quick info
Edit: Thanks for the gold!
There is some amazing tips in the comment section, it's not easy to edit them in on mobile, I'll mention the best ones once i'm home.
