You get infinite money and once a week you get to take a child to a candy store or toys or us or somewhere they love and buy them as much they want this would be fun given the kid wasn’t a brat. There is no downside to this at all This is the best, because it says A CHILD, not your child, so I could pick one of the really poor kids on the streets and go “Your life is going to change right now”, and I could buy everything their family might need, along with a house, a food supply, toys, clothes, and everything they never had the chance to have before. And the best thing is that I could do this with lots of children, and not just one. I could give a lot of children in need a full week of Christmas basically and maybe give them a chance to have a different life. That would be great. Bless u ^ humanity still exists.  Plus depending on how you define “child”, you could be helping highschool students who are struggling with application fines and even pay for college tuition, room and board, or books Bless this post and you kind hearted people. AND it says “AT LEAST” one week a month so you don’t have to stop at just one week, you could do this literally every day. And it doesn’t say it has to be the same child the whole week so you could easily pick one child each day, ‘cause let’s face it you could probably take care of most everything in that one day and spread your child-helping ability even further. : randomslasher: seek-strength: geekinallitsglory: sashaalexanderisalesbianatheart: judgingitsilently: krazieleylines: typicalpony: How awesome does this sound though.

Keep the changes in mind. Whenever I see this I wonder what the gun guys think about it. : What should I absolutely not do when visiting the USA? Charlie Knoles, I have lived in 5 countries and am an Aussie expat in the USA Answered 2d ago + Don't get out of your car ifyou get pulled over by police. I was pulled over by a police officer while driving in Iowa. It was one week afterI had arrived in the USA for the first time. I had accidentally made a minor mistake disobeying a traffic sign. Back home in Australia it's considered polite to get out of your car and walk over to the police officer's car and hand him your license so he doesn't have to get out of his seat. I wanted to be extra polite so I immediately jumped out of my car and walked towards his car while reaching into my back pocket. I'm lucky to be alive. If you come from a gun-free country like the UK or Australia you don't have any natural instinct for gun culture. You don't realize that police assume that everyone is armed. Things got immediately serious. The police officer's hand went to his weapon and I responded by dropping to my knees with my hands up. He yelled a bunch of things at me but my memory is vague because my heartbeat was suddenly pulsing in my ears blotting out all sound. I don't know if he drew his weapon or not. I was staring intently at the ground, shaking and trying to project non- threatening vibes. My next memory is that there were three police cars around me and a bunch of cops who'd been called for backup. They were all keeping their hands close to their guns. After some time passed (a minute? 30 minutes?I have no idea) the tensions de-escalated and they told me to get up. I gave the officer my license and tried to explain why I'd approached him. It was completely incomprehensible to him that there was a place where people don't fear cops and vice versa at traffic stops. It was as though I was trying to tell him that I came from Narnia and our cops were all talking animals. I've spoken to several British people, New Zealanders, and Australians who have shared almost identical stories. They really need to put signs up in all major US airports. Don't get out of your car if stopped by police. They will assume you are armed and they might shoot you. fierceawakening: adelmortescryche: Reblogging for other diasporic and expat folk.

justforsmiles: justforsmiles: justforsmiles: justforsmiles: My friend said: “You’re such a millennial - taking the fight to social media.” Yep. That I did. I’m just livid.  I’ll stop sharing this when the MTA stops taking all my hard-earned money I could be using for tuition, stickers, books, food, and other expenses. (Oh wait, that’s never…) Reblogging one week later…nope, I still have not heard anything regarding my 10/24 incident. I WILL NOT LET THE MTA get away with any of this so easily  The MTA has been even more upsetting this week. It has been taking two hours to get to work and get home…four hours of my life being stuck on trains that constantly seem to be experiencing extensive delays. OH AND STILL NOTHING from the MTA…I WANT MY REIMBURSEMENTS. Two weeks. It has been over a month since my first incident. The funny thing is that I’ve noticed MTA workers seated by the train station stairs and guys in uniform looking over the turnstiles. Let me just flatter myself for a moment and pretend they’ve seen posts like this going around and they sense more people will try to get through without paying. I have not done that but that just gets me even more frustrated. I am NOT at all well off to be in this position right now. MTA, you are absolutely dead in my books.  : Sylvia J. @justviasyl On 10/24, I had 12 days remaining on my monthly MetroCard when it read "invalid" Just 30 minutes ago, it read invalid again, and it doesn't expire until 12/6. How much more time and money do I have to waste, #MTA? Your best advice is for me to mail it in. You must be jokin 8:04 PM-12 Nov 2018 2 Likes 2 li 2 NYCT Subway@NYCTSubway-8h wReplying to @justviasyl Hi Sylvia - -we know how frustrating this can be. Unfortunately, yes, a malfunctioning Unlimited Ride MetroCard must be mailed into us for investigation. Please do so right away as the reimbursement is based on the postmark date. (12) ABD NYCT Subway@NYCTSubway 8h Replying to @justviasyl The good news is that we are working on a new fare payment system that will include contactless and mobile payment options and, we believe, will be far more reliable and efficient. See mtainfo/press-release/ for more details. (2/2) л BD a J. @justviasyl 1h Replying to @NYCTSubway 1/3: 1) Visited the MetroCard Customer Service Centre-expecting reimbursement within 2 weeks like I was told. 2) Can you please clarify whether we get a new card/money is deposited baclk into the acc. we purchased the MetroCard with? 3) Still haven't heard about 10/24's incident Sylvia J. @justviasyl 60m Replying to @NYCTSubway 2/3: and I'm supposed to consistently waste more money when these issues occur and play the waiting game. My mom also sent in a claim form on 9/23 and has received nothing. Worst service ever. Don't make promises and fail to deliver, please Syia J. @justviasyl 59m Replying to @NYCTSubway 3/3: What are the statistics like for issues like this? This happens a lot in my neighborhood and I know a lot of people who would not come forward and chase after these happenings because of the lengthy process and/or language arrier Sylia J. @justviasyl 43m Replying to @NYCTSubway Great, it really is about time for contactless and mobile payment options to be available. More time should be spent on implementing more efficient processes. justforsmiles: justforsmiles: justforsmiles: justforsmiles: My friend said: “You’re such a millennial - taking the fight to social media.” Yep.
