friend of mine not too long ago painted his house. He lives in a
development that has an HOA. He admits that he and his wife made the
first mistake by not reading the HOA handbook close enough so they
didn’t realize they had to get the color approved by the HOA.
On the first day of painting, the head of the HOA stopped by and
talked to them, made small talk, talked about ways to make painting the
house easier etc. At this time the HOA head knew they hadn’t gotten the
color approved because he sits on the three-person panel that approves
the colors, however, he opted not to say anything to them. Instead, he
waited until they had the entire house painted then told them the color
was not approved because there too many other houses with a similar
color (it was a lighter shade of green).
So, faced with having to spend the time and money to repaint the
entire house, he and his wife decided to get a little revenge. They
submitted the form and color swatch for the new color and were approved.
Knowing the panel had to take time out of their lives to meet every
time they submit a color, they decided to submit another color swatch
and form saying that they had changed their minds. This color was one
they knew would never be approved. As assumed, it was denied. They had
to submit again and again they submitted a color they knew would never
be approved. Again, they were denied. They repeated this 4 or 5 times
before the HOA head contacted them and told them the first swatch they
submitted was still approved and not to submit another swatch for
approval, they were tired of playing games. He replied telling him that
it turns out that color is no longer available and they needed to submit
one last swatch, which, of course, was a color that they knew would not
be approved. This time the HOA told them if they submitted another
un-approvable swatch they would be fined and billed for the panel’s
time. He submitted another swatch that was a color he knew would never
be approved and with it a photocopy of the page from the handbook
covering the process of getting a color approved. He pointed out that
there was nothing in there that mentioned any limit to a number of
swatches a person could submit.
This entire process took a few months. After 8 or 9 swatches that
were denied, the head of the HOA was fuming mad and showed up at their
door telling them he wasn’t leaving until they had decided on a color
for the house. My friend pointed out that the handbook says the only way
for a color to be approved was with a vote from the full panel. The HOA
head called the other two people, they came over, and once they were
all sat down he and his wife shuffled through about 10 different
swatches of crazy colors before finally showing them one that was a
light green color. Frustrated, they approved it and left.
A few weeks later, the head of the HOA contacted him to see when they
were going to paint and he told them they already had. The swatch that
they had approved was the color the house was already painted. A week
later he got an angry letter from the HOA and a bill for their time. He
refused to pay and will fight it. A couple weeks after that everyone got
a revised handbook in the mail with very detailed rules on how to get a
color approved. My friend then called the head of the HOA and told him
all of this could have been avoided if he had just said something that
day when he came over and talked to them as they started painting, but
he decided to be a dick, so they decided to be dicks back to him.
TL;DR - HOA head is a jerk to my friend so he and his wife get petty
revenge by driving the HOA head and the paint color approval committee
Edit - Well, this has blown up unexpectantly. Apparently, HOA’s are a point of anger for a lot of people. Just a few follow-ups:
I’m no expert on the lien/fine situation and how that all plays
out. I was just going off something I was told. Apparently, if he
doesn’t pay the fine they can file a lien against him and they could
foreclose on his house. When I told him this he explained that the
handbook actually had a detailed procedure on how fines are to be handed
out and collected. There are apparently a few steps the HOA has to take
before they will file a lien and none of those have happened yet. The
fine is $300 so if it escalates to the next step and they try to collect
the money he will take action even if that means swallowing his pride
and paying. He is going to double check just to make certain they
haven’t tried to file the lien on the sly.
A lot of people are wondering how an HOA comes to be and why
anyone would move into one. To make it short, the idea of an HOA is a
good one. They help make sure the community stays nice and property
values stay up so you don’t have neighbors that move in, never cut their
grass, have three broken down cars and a couch in their front yard and
constantly throw loud parties, driving down your property values. They
also often have community-wide benefits like a pool, workout room, etc.
The problem is that some people get the slightest bit of power and it
goes to their head and they turn into assholes. Based on the replies I
have seen here, that seems to happen quite a bit. There are good HOA’s.
My brother lives in a place that has one that he has nothing but good
things to say about, but it seems like there are many that are bad and
go too far.
Requests: Hey! The post on Jun’s ideal type and kinks was great and I was wondering if you have one for Jeonghan?
ideal type and kinks for jeonghan? <33
Remember that everything is based on my opinion!
oh boi this one is gonna be hard
the angel devil of seventeen huh ;)))
hehehh jk i love jeonghan
ok so, his ideal type
i think he’ll be more strict on this side
i think he’ll want someone older to take care of him??? and i think he likes sexy ones
and someone who’ll suit him well
he would flirt 24/7 so it will be good for him if his partner flirts back all the time too
and of course, it’s a must for his partner to listen to the group’s music and support them
he likes to annoy the people he loves (that’s kinda his way of showing his affection mine too) so he would poke and annoy and joke with his s/o
but he does it out of love so he would be happy if his partner doesn’t take him seriously :’)
so i think this is pretty much it for his ideal type
and now, let’s move onto the kinks
HE’S SO KINKY
DOESN’T SHOW IT, BUT HE IS
and he would probably try out everything
from positions to toys, bdsm and costumes
i think he loves soft bondage (you know these light lingerie sets and handcuffs and soft blindfolds) just enough so his partner can’t touch him and let him do everything and also enough to not hurt his s/o
it’s a big turn on for him not letting his partner touch him and let him pleasure them
he’s also very dirt minded
by that i mean he’s really perverted and will also do things such as masturbate to his s/o photos and selfies when they aren’t around
QWOETRJEIF I JUST SEE HIM DOING THAT OKAY
weakness-ass and thighs
he’ll do everything to bend you over his knee and spank you, leaving red bruises on it so he can look at them later and think “oh, she/he’s mine”
and not only during sexy time, he’ll regularly grab it or squeeze it haven’t we all seen pics and videos how he touches the members’ asses all the time lmao
he’ll also always grab onto the thighs while thrusting inside you
also one of his biggest weakness will be mutual masturbating
like he’ll set up a rule like “not touching each other ok”
and make you lay in front of him and touch yourself while he does the same
and make you look into his eyes as you cum
but he’ll probably not keep this rule and end in a great sex most of the time
but if he wants to tease or get jealous over something, he’ll definitely keep it
oK SO I THINK THIS IS ALL FOR HIM ahh i love him he’s such an angel <33 and a devil sometimes lmao
Nick hates other predatory fish/mer-mammal like barracudas and especially sharks.
Nick: What’s so great about sharks. Everyone thinks they’re so badass! With their dozens of sharp teeth! I have dozens of sharp teeth too and mine are more intimidating! And anglers can swallow prey whole that is twice their own size! We can eat about anything that we want! I don’t see sharks doing that! They even get their own stupid theme song, why don’t anglers have a theme song!?
He also enjoys watching shark movies when he’s at Ben’s beach house with Judy. Because he loves when the sharks get killed. Especially in Deep Blue Sea and Jaws when the shark at the end gets blown up.
Plus he loves that Skye is a shark hunter! XD and loves eating the shark meat!
A few years ago I took a Wilderness First Responder (EMT’s for outdoors basically) class and it was my turn to be a victim, so the instructor gave me this really wicked and dramatic looking head wound. It was a huge gash across my forehead, over my nose and down my cheek, fake blood everywhere, matted hair and everything. It was incredibly realistic.
So I took a photo, naturally, and sent it to a couple friends. Unfortunately, one of those friends was a dude that I had a raging crush on and I wasn’t able to send any kind of explanation text because I got called to get with the program. So I set my phone down and got on with class, I came back like 40 minutes later to several texts like “please tell me that’s fake,” because I’m also prone to real and severe injuries that I also just photograph and send my friends (with explanations though, so they’re more like “haha look what my dumb ass did this time”)
I ended up having a mini panic because I AM NOT that person that just sends those weird “I’m not ok” texts, or creates weird situations where I allude to not being ok and making the other person feel obligated to ask what’s going on (I hate that shit tbh). So I ended up texting something like IM SO SORRY ITS TOTALLY FAKE I MEANT TO SAY IT WAS FAKE I GOT INTERRUPTED IM SO SORRY I BOTHERED YOU
imagine the "too-short-to-reach-that-book-they-want" AU and Jake happens to be there looking for comics and sees Amy tryna reach a book on the top shelf and he watches her for a while until he can't stop laughing and reaches it for her and she's grumpy that he didn't help her sooner and awwwww
OH MY GOSH YES
amy being super flustered and trying her damn hardest to get this book
she’s so competitive that she will. not. let any of the librarians help her get it down
she’s so intent on doing it herself and jake is on the other side of the room just looking at the comics and he only looks up when he hears her say “no thanks, i’ve got this” for the umpteenth time and he just stands there snickering a little
she doesnt even notice she’s so intent on getting this book
jake starts inching closer, looking at books and pretending that he’s interested but he really isn’t (who is george orwell anyway)
and he gets to where amy is and he just reaches up right next to her and grabs the book next to the one he wants and she glares him down and he just deadpans and he’s trying so hard not to grin but also she’s the most beautiful person he’s ever seen
and he’s just like “yeah yeah i know, you’ve got this” and shrugs and begins to walk off
but amy’s just a little bit enchanted (just the tiniest bit. not even the tiniest bit. she just hates him. oh my gosh shut up amy’s head she doesn’t like him go away) and she calls him back when he reaches the stairs
and he’s grinning and he gets the book for her but he’s laughing all the time and he knows damn well that she’s into him but he’s into her too so he’s trying to be lingering and sexy but he just kind of stretches really slowly and makes himself look like an idiot
the ask about allergies & stuff- i just found that so relatable, because when i was a young child i was lactose intolerant and cried ALL THE TIME until i was given soy milk, and i was the only one of the children to have this (i'm no longer lactose intolerant lol) and now i'm like. getting a professional diagnosis? this is so funny to me lol
Hello allergy buddy! I grew out of mine too! (though now I think I’m developing new ones lol). I’m glad they were able to figure things out for you as a kid! It’s so hard constantly dealing with the symptoms of intolerances when you don’t know what’s going on.
That’s the thing many people cannot seem to differ. Saying someone is handsome/pretty, does not automatically imply that you’re attracted to them? Friends of mine and me, too, often say how pretty my brother is and how he will be even more handsome when he is a grown up. And there‘s no more meaning behind it than that. The same statement applies to Finn, still doesn’t mean that I’m attracted to a kid if I say „He is very pretty“.
Don’t over think it too much, there’s nothing wrong with that! Don’t stress !
