My dog got injured during her stay at dog boarding. They didn’t tell me about it and I only found out when we got home. They had some kind of insurance in case of injury/illness, so I filed a claim and took her to the vet. In the last step of being reimbursed for the vet bill, I’m being asked to sign an NDA and non-disparagement agreement.
I haven’t signed it nor do I want to. They basically don’t want to take responsibility.

Anyone have any advice on the matter?


Hey ladies. My best friend has been dating her BF for over 4 years. She left him today after a pretty abusive night last night. She’s staying with her parents now, but is there anything I can send her to feel better? It’s so hard to see her go through something like this.

An honest confession. I am 35 years old female, married to a guy and have 1.5 year old son. I know I like females and often have those dreams where I see myself with some female or the other. Contd..

Hello Houston TX accountants and others


Why don't guys like when the guy they are talking to calls them dude? "Dude" is in my every day vocabulary but sometimes when I'm talking to a guy and refer to them as dude, they give me that awkward look or ask me why i called them dude 🤔🤔🤔


I live in a more conservative city. Does anyone feel like how you perform at work is a reflection of the gay community to your peers? For example, if you’re a bad performer, it’s going to be reflective of the gay community as a whole and could make it harder for the next gay person? Is it weird to think that?


Hey folks, you should check in on your trans co-workers, friends and family. They are probably having a rough time right now.
