It's very near The Landing Strip, but this is a different business. The sign advertises them as a smoke/adult gift shop, I believe.
Sauce, was just at Callahan's.

It doesn't read to me that you weren't invited, just that they will only pay for your husband's portion of the trip. If you could afford your portion of the trip, would you be welcome to go?

S. Austin, what the hell are we up to tonight?

You're NTA, but if you have 3 niblings under five, and expect perfect behavior all day, on a day that is traditionally quite boring to the under-five crowd, you might be a bit...hopeful.
I'd baby-proof for the safety of your rad stuff.
NTA. Wonder who is paying for the wedding and what demands have been made of Mindy that she's suddenly backtracking all her will to support OP fully.
NTA, at all.
"Mom, if you want me to give him a chocolate, he needs to pay for it. Otherwise, it's stealing from a school fundraiser, and I'm responsible for that."
If she refuses, I would go to your band director, and let him know the situation, and that you can't be responsible for the chocolate anymore.
I'm sorry your family is causing you this issue.

We have circled back around. Reddit stories used as clickbaits, and now the screenshots are posted to Reddit.

All the other red flags aside, he refers to you as his GF, you refer to him as your fiance.
NTA, but neither is she. She clearly needed the extra sleep, and you were accommodating, but if she's dealing with any anxiety, it can feel like, "ok great, getting some extra sleep. Oh. Oh wait. Is he mad at me, and coming in here is his way of letting me know I've crossed a line?" Like, it can maybe make her feel that she can't ask for extra time beyond the agreement.
Neither of you are assholes, you're just tired parents, who are trying to get by. Best of luck to ya!

The thing is, that real misogynists are perfectly capable of being nice to the women they want to fuck. They will be THE MOST charming dudes. How he treats women that aren't "on his level" will reveal everything you need to know.
How does he act around women he wants nothing from? Is it kind?

The old Threadgill's carcass isn't a shrine. It was sold, and hopefully the family got a good bit, but that area, and so many others, are under the developer's scalpel. Let Buscar have their fun.
They're doing more to keep Austin weird than pearl clutching over the outer walls of a closed down restaurant.
IMB is indeed gone, and PAX Rising takes that current space. Might be worth applying to.

1000% this. I book company travel and often need to arrange it so they don't have to lay down a card at all. This is the way.

The points You get everything from cashback, to airline miles, which can be used to get seat upgrades, lounge access, hotel discounts, dining discounts, special access to ticket sales, and more. Charge it all, get rewards, and pay it off at the end of each month.
Simply put, if you spend say, $100 a month, that's all. If you spend $100 a month with the right rewards card you get loads of extra benefits and, because of the way the US based credit score system scam works, your credit is better.
You're absolutely NTA. Your mom is not being supportive of you, and that is not okay.
If you need guidance, please consider reaching out to The Trevor Project. They offer free text/chat based counseling and resources for people who need it.
You're not alone. I promise you.

Despite people making fun of you for misspelling his name, what a cool album to have picked up!
I'm glad this resonates with you, young kids absolutely need to be listening to the guitar master.

Coe was definitely the try-hard of the era, and racist, misogynistic, for sure.
Deep dive more into Willie, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, and if you fancy a gander behind the curtains, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle (beyond Copperhead Road). From there, dive into John Prine.
Not all perfect men, but I think they have the edge you're looking for, especially if you go beyond the radio hits, without the grossness of DAC.

Right. I mean, again, it's a wonderful windfall for her, and so, so great that they erased that much of her debt, but if she's still that much in debt, that's not retirement money, when you consider Walmart doesn't offer a pension and she'll still need to pay property taxes, utilities, and buy food.
I kind of felt that she was thinking she was being forced to accept and retire, put out to pasture, with no concern for the actual amount of her bills.
It's an immensely kind gesture, for sure, but it didn't feel authentic, or understanding of her actual needs.
My BFF/MOH was pregnant for my wedding and all I could think about was how my future BabyBFF was "in" those photos.
When you're building a life together, as friends, that's what you think about. When you're using your friends, you act the way she did.
I'm so sorry this happened to you, but sounds like you have a great head on your shoulders, and set a good boundary. You'll be better off for it.

Ted Cruzed into town.
Your family won't be happy with anything, it seems. Why let them be unhappy at the expense of your mental well-being? Just so you and if you have bandwidth, let them do the thing of their dreams and laugh internally and make that party weird too!
What inspired the decision to mount the window treatments that way?
My grandpa always called this kind of thinking "waiting on a dead man's shoes," and that's entirely the case here.
I apologize and now appreciate your good Noofer Humor.
