2023.05.31 02:10 iam_chris_wright Here is a tale of my own company
| || |
So this was a little over 2 year back now, I drove over the road 2 years for this company loved every about it. Pay way great they always seem to work with me on family matters and home time. I left them for about 6 month because of personal affairs after putting in my resignation. Well about 6 months after I left they asked me to come back they said since you left from being over the road maybe you'd like a regional route M-F weekends off. I figured why the fuck not. After doing it for about 8 months or so, I was putting into a truck stop, to be exact, the pilot in Kenly NC on truck stop road. Road was completely clear, I start into my turn after I already crossed the left lane barely touching the truck stop pavement going to the fuel isles an old lady in a car hit me in my driver side head light. She was going 50 in a 25 in a hill that leads to a bind curve. Now that hill is at least about 2 blocks from me at the moment but by the time I looked up she hit me full speed, everyone around said her brakes like never lit up she hit me head on full speed going double the speed limit. Everyone including the on lookers and the cop said it wasn't my fault she had more than enough time to slow down. The cop said if she was going 5 miles faster she would have died on impact and said she must have been on her phone or asleep at the wheel to never see me. My company at that time blamed me and said it was an avoidable accident and I should have saw her. Mean by the time she was peaking around the blind curve I was already turning looking at where I was going by the time I glance to check she was hitting me. They fired me that day, and ended paying the old lady who swears I cut her off $25,000 in court. Thoughts, ideas, opinions? submitted by iam_chris_wright to Truckers [link] [comments]

2023.05.31 00:19 SomeBeerDrinker Tent Camping along I-77/79
I'm currently planning a road trip for the fam this August from NC to VT. I've never been to WV so this seems like a great opportunity to rectify that.
The plan is to camp for a few nights somewhere along I-77/79 (the farther north the better) so that the kids (4/6) and I can hang out while my wife goes... somewhere to work.
I've been scouring google maps but I thought it would make more sense to solicit recommendations.
Looking for somewhere that favors tent camping and has showers. Power isn't really necessary but potable water is. I see that Babcock State Park has wifi/cell service. Something like that would certainly make my wife's life easier but I really don't see it having the bandwidth to be practical. A town large enough to have a place to remote work within an hours drive would be great.
Anyone care to share? Feel free to slide into my dm's if you don't want to broadcast your hidden gems.

2023.05.30 23:32 PolyamasaurusRex 38 [M4F] Looking for friends first
Forgot to put it in my title, but I’m in Raleigh, NC. Looking for people regardless of location though.
Kitchen table poly dude looking for new friends. Not a euphemism for anything, actual friends. I'm open to it being more down the road if it makes sense, but I'm not seeking that out. I'm specifically looking for poly friends (which is why I posted here) because its a big part of my life and I'd prefer to have people who can relate, from experience, to the things that come along with that.
About me: I'm 38, brown hair, hazel eyes, not fat but not fit, on the taller side, and frequently described as a teddy bear. I'm happily married, a proud dad (with the bod and jokes to match), extrovert, and eternal hobbyist. Reading, writing, woodworking, hiking, camping, cooking, baking, board games, video games, DIY, concerts, hockey (Hurricanes), football(NCSU\Panthers), Star Wars, LOTR, Harry Potter, Doctor Who... really almost anything geeky or nerdy. My interests are varied and I like it that way. This list isn't even close to comprehensive.
I might overuse commas sometimes. Possibly, maybe, all the time. I love having chats that wander off into philosophical tangents and/or over analyzing movies and shows. I communicate via TikToks, memes, and emoji more than I should. I'm a connoisseur of terrible jokes and horrible puns and love groans and eye rolls every bit as much as laughter. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Self improvement is important to me, and I'm constantly trying to be a better person. My therapist even says I'm "well adjusted". Not that I don't make mistakes or have room for improvement, working on yourself is a process that never really stops, but I'm generally happy with the kind of person I am and proud of the work I've put in to be that way.
Ideally looking for people to form deep and lasting friendships with. I want to hear about your day, what's happening in your life, your random thoughts, and the things that bring you joy as well as having space for me to share those too. A shared sense of humor, common interests, open communication, emotional maturity, empathy, effort, and being willing to listen to each other even when we disagree are all very important to me. Someone I can nerd out with as easily as I can joke with. If you're local to the Raleigh area that's awesome, but definitely not required. Online friends are real friends too.
Other stuff if you're curious: * Neurodivergent and loving it * Overtly liberal and likely to grate on your nerves if you aren't * Sense of humor ranges from incredibly lame to super dark * Open book, you can ask me anything * Honest but not in a mean way * Agnostic but not personally spiritual * Respectful of others spiritual beliefs * Clear and direct in communication * Optimistic and positive but not naive * Talkative by nature, both in person and via chat * Does not make demands of others time * Open to emotional investment (platonic or not) but not clingy * Has kids and absolutely adores them * Sets clear boundaries and expects (and respects) the same * Empathy in abundance * Introspective and philosophical * Likes cats and dogs, has neither, but the feeling is usually mutual * Demisexual\Aceflux: I can be flirty, but I'm very slow to go further than that * Really want to emphasize this: not looking for anything NSFW * Astrology: Cancer Sun, Leo Rising, Pisces Moon * Meyers-Briggs: ENFP-A (The Campaigner) * Respects people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, relationship statuses, and ENM styles * Does not tolerate intolerance * Prefers Telegram but open to other chat apps

2023.05.30 22:53 -Lady_of_the_Vale- Possibly drove past a stopped school bus in NC
Hi, first off I feel incredibly bad about this and I'm never going to let myself do this again.
As I was driving down a three lane road (two ways with a turning lane in the middle) I think was putting out its sign right as I drove past from the opposite direction. This was also a spot where vehicles often slow or stop to make a right hand turn into a parking lot. The bus driver honked at me right as I passed and I immediately realized what happened. I pulled over into a parking lot because I felt to bad to continue until I gathered myself. No kids had gotten off the bus yet and I don't know what to do now.
First step is obviously to start trying to anticipate if a bus is going to come to a stop.
What else can I do? I see that passing a bus is a class 1 misdemeanor in NC. Am I going to get a court summons in the mail?

2023.05.30 21:53 lovenabundance26 I feel nothing after seeing my SP
Today after exactly 1 month 7 days i saw my SP on the road.I just saw a glimpse of him as he was passing by. ( Not sure if he has seen me or not) We are in NC. I am reading books, listing to a lot of subs suggested by many reddit members, continuous doing my affirmations at night as well as when i get up in the morning. I am not very good with visualisation but sometimes i try to think the good moments that we have spent together. I know its already done and i know we are together again. I was in a state of lack and had too many negetive thoughts about this relationship but now i have overcome everything. But Today when i saw him, i felt nothing. I mean obviously i was happy but i did not get excited or anything. Not sure if i am able to make you guys understand the situation or not. I don't know why i felt this way and this thought is bothering me alot. I just felt that i know he is mine and i will get him. I thought my reaction after seeing him would be something different but it wasn't. Is this something to worry about? Is it that i dont lobe him like before or i don't want him anymore? What is it? I feel so confused right now. Any help or suggestions will be really helpful as because this thought is really bothering me alot.

2023.05.30 18:40 thehighestsin Resources for the homeless in Wilmington
Hi all. I don’t live in Wilmington, but I have a friend who does. He recently became homeless after the people he shared his house with moved out and defaulted on the rent, and I am just trying to do my part from afar to help him figure out where to go for assistance. I’ve offered as much financial help as I can for the time being and I don’t live in NC so I can’t offer him much by way of a place to stay…
He does have a job, and is on the verge of getting a better-paying position (it was offered to him, he just has to finalize paperwork) if he can get a new ID secured (his is expired and he no longer lives at the address listed)… I’ve tried to do my research online but also thought I would ask here. The main priorities are places to shower and hopefully finding him a low-cost room he can rent sometime soon. He doesn’t have a car so places close to S. College Road would be easiest for him to access, especially since his money is limited right now.
Any suggestions or resources anyone can provide would be so appreciated. I’m hoping to drive to Wilmington later this week to bring him some essentials if I can and maybe chauffeur him around town for the day to take care of some things.

2023.05.30 17:28 sleepy__seraphim no contact is getting more difficult
it’s been 81 days since BU and 75 days NC. the anniversary of our first date is this week. i feel silly putting my business out there for strangers but here we go.
for context: he(27m) broke up with me(31f) after 8/9months together saying he “wasn’t sure” if he was “in love” with me and if he wasn’t sure “then the answer is probably ‘no’”. we’d met families, been to work and family weddings together, gone through pet deaths, health scares, three moves and friendship drama, and had just returned from a wonderful vacation together and a family birthday when he ended things, seemingly having decided to do so less than twelve hours earlier. in the relationship we sometimes would express when needs weren’t being met, but we never fought and he gave me no reason for the breakup other than not being sure if he was in love. in the heat of the moment he expressed that he wasn’t sure he should be in any kind of relationship with anyone and said some concerning things about willingness to continue living. he’d been going through some seasonal depression and i’d been patient and supportive. i also said that night that i didn’t know if i would ever be able to speak to him again. we ended up having a conversation about a week later that was much calmer but didn’t really give any further clarity for me. we left the conversation saying we’d see each other in a little while and maybe be friends down the road. obviously i gained a little sense shortly thereafter bc that was the last time we spoke.
he checked a lot of boxes for me, and i really thought this was my forever person. i was completely blindsided. i think about him every single day. it’s getting harder and harder not to reach out, and i worry he never will, not bc he has moved on but but bc of the things i said in the heat of the moment (and his friends and family telling him not to “waste my time” very early on). i thought i’d feel better by now as it was a comparatively short relationship for me, but i cried myself to sleep last night and our mutual friend just posted a photo with him and i feel sick.
i hate “if they wanted to they would”nonsense and i know a lot of people who experience uncertainty and anxiety in their wonderful partnerships. how do i know he doesn’t need a little encouragement?? if he did reach out would it even have been enough time for him to have done any kind of improvement or reflection? i’m a catch (!!!!) and i know he fumbled the bag so why do i still feel like i can’t find anyone better?

2023.05.30 16:38 HypotheicalQs Sending Guns Somewhere Safe
I know that no one here is a lawyer, and I’m just looking for some advice to work through an unfortunate situation.
Is it worth it to simply transfer ownership/possession of a CT Otheanything potentially “troublesome” to a trusted person out of state until I can move to a more free state?
I am a younger firearms owner, with all the new legislation and regulation coming down the pipe, I plan on moving out of CT as soon as I can. In the meantime, would it be worth it, or possible, to simply transfer ownership of Others/any potentially to-be banned firearms, to someone in a free(er) state like SC, FL, TX, NC, etc? I know each state obviously has its own regulations that could change -and please call me out and correct me if I’m significantly glossing over important details- but it seemed that broadly, if an unmodified, CT legal firearm was taken to any free state, it’s legally in the clear.
If anyone has done this, I’d really appreciate your input.
I’ve reached out to people in free states and am looking at my options. I know I’ll have to pay transfer fees through an FFL, are there any other costs and concerns I should be aware of?
One of the big things I’m hoping to find more info on, is if it is possible to ship the firearms over to said state (if so, is there a particular service that would need to be used, or one that folks might recommend?). Or would I need to buckle up for a road trip and take a few vacation days to see it all get done?
I’ve never done a transfer to someone, let alone out of state, would I need to be physically present? Would they need copies of my Driver’s License and permit? Just my License (as the permit is just to buy, not to posses firearms in CT)?
I know this is quite a few questions, but I’m quite concerned and sadly these concerns seem to be justified. Thank you to anyone who’s read this far, many thanks.
The plan I’m starting to put together would be to hopefully ship the firearms in question to a free state and have them transfered to a trusted person (sorry for the vagueness, I just figured in matters like this, less detail is always better, the state in question seems to allow everything legal in CT and the Other would be taken down and just transfered as the lower, with no upper or evil plastic brace attached just to make sure) The trusted person in question can legally own firearms and has a room that they already use for storage of their own guns. Then I’d mail down some socks and locks, or possibly see if there’s an affordable safe on the market to buy for them (I know this could be pricey, but for helping me preserve a modicum of my rights, I should probably be willing to spend a bit extra to make things as convenient as possible for them). After that, simply let the guns sit while I work on moving out of CT, and when that day comes, hope said trusted person is willing to transfer them back to me.
Please let me know of any and all holes in this idea, I know no solution is perfect, but I want to find the best one I can. I know no one is going to be able to hold my hand for this whole process, but any helping hand is deeply appreciated, personal experience, links, suggestions, anything and everything, is a godsend.
Thank you for the advice I’ve found on this page, it gives me a lot of hope to see how many people care about preserving our rights in CT. Though I’m hoping to safely and legally transfer my “troublesome” firearms to a free state, this gives me hope that in spite of that, we might be able to fight and win the battles necessary so that one day I and anyone else who has done this could bring them back home. You guys and gals are fantastic. Thank you again and God Bless.

2023.05.30 16:02 Harmonic_Major This place has saved me.
A year ago I sat in the cafe I'm currently sitting in.
I was researching BPD and came across this sub. My ex told me about her quiet BPD on the second date, and I wanted to do more research. My intuition was always on fire - despite how caring, sweet, loving, gentle and devoted she was at the time. I felt like something was wrong, and with that came a gigantic sense of uncertainty.
If I'm honest, when I first read the stories on here, it made me doubt whether my ex had BPD at all - or whether her symptoms were just so mild. I found some of the accounts quite comical, almost laughable. I hate myself for saying that, but it just did not add up to what her behaviour was at the time. I saw her in a completely different way, come to find out - it was all an illusion. You were all absolutely right.
Everything played out like clockwork. She devalued me, stonewalled me, and found a reason to leave after messaging enough people on my social media. She now hates me, calls me a cheater, that I never loved her, whilst I - as a crazy codependent, have begged and pleaded for some type of in-person conversation. It was so sudden, so cruel and so definitive.
She hoovered and broke NC after three months last week. It wasn't a pleasant conversation by any stretch of the imagination, but it provided me with a bit more clarity with regard to how unwell she specifically is.
This sub has helped me so much on the journey to understanding, reflection, shared struggle and healing. I've been reading the book "Whole Again" which is recommended here, and it's honestly golden. I recommend anyone pick it up if they haven't already. The road to surrendering that guilt, that pain and ongoing rejection and accepting what has happened is: More body, less story.
I'm still so empty, fatigued and broken, but I'm beginning to accept what is. It's been a chaotic, horrendous year, I've witnessed her split and change me in a way that I could never imagine - in the process, childhood wounds have been opened that I never realised existed. I can only be thankful for the opportunity to be more aware, improve and avoid any situation like this again.
Here's to being better. Thanks so much to all of you guys, truly. Keep sharing your stories, keep working on yourselves and keep holding faith in love.

2023.05.30 14:53 Suitable_Dingo27 2 months in
Truly hope you all are doing ok, however it happened and what stage you are in. For me it’s been two months and the pain isn’t so intense, but seems to go into different stages.
I’ve been reading a lot of posts and comments here and have to say thanks for so many people openly sharing where they are at, it helps us all with some perspective, I know my ability to think rationally has been switched off alot recently.
I miss her like crazy and it’s still hard to go more than a few seconds after waking up without it hitting like a tonne of bricks. We are in contact by necessity and probably the massive attachment that comes with nearly a decade together. NC clearly makes sense, but not a path everyone takes.
I haven’t talked about how I feel with many people as the desire to isolate kicked in. I’ve been doing some of the standard stuff, lots of gym, focus on work, journal, but feel like it’s going to be a long road ahead. Being betrayed by the person you love and trust most.. wouldn’t wish it on anyone!
