Entitled Mom wants to have our firework spot (idk what to call it)
EM - Entitled Mother
Me - Me
D - Dad
P - Policeman
RS - Reasonable Son
So, a bit of a backstory. I live in an apartment complex with garages on the outside that two apartments share (two apt have one garage). And the garage is directly next to an alleyway that leads out of our apartment complex.
So this is how it begins. Yesterday, we were chillin’ on the roof of my garage looking at other fireworks far away ( waiting for the rest of my family to bring the cooler fireworks -not illegal ones-). Every once in a while we saw cars coming into the alleyway, and we move out the way to let them go. After a little bit of popping, we see an impatient looking lady that is driving in a grey minivan. She rips down her window and tells us this-
EM - Uhm hey what are you guys doing here in the alley?
Me - (Politely) We we’re getting started with our next sparkler, ma’am.
EM - You guys CANNOT be out here, this is a spot me and my angels!
I see some kid in the back of the car, I couldn’t tell what his age was at first, but then he said this,
RK - Mommmm, we can just find another spot down the alley!
I guessed about 12-14
EM - No, we had this very spot last year and we are getting it again!
keep in mind, she did not have this spot last year 😂 We did.
Me - Ok lady if you would please, go settle at a spot somewhere else?
EM - No way, I would never let a Beaner get this spot instead of me!
(Beaner: A very racial slur for a Mexican) I was the only one Mexican there, while the rest of my family is Puerto Rican.
Me (being very angry at what she said) - Hey lady if you could get your a** away from my family and go somewhere else! You have no right to call me that and a person like you should not be able to enjoy 4th of July!
My dad steps in, also being very angry at what EM said to me. Not a direct quote
D - Lady you do NOT have the right to call my son that! This is VERY VERY irresponsible of you trying to get other people’s spot because (he put this in quotes) “you had it last year”.
The lady gets extra angry like if she had became Super Saiyan 16!
They just had an argument on how we were just peacefully popping fireworks and she was disturbing our peace, something like that. Until my aunt starts to call the police of what she has done. We don’t allow the woman to leave, but I’m guessing my aunt called for disturbance of peace. The police came and got out of their car. (I was surprised they even came because they would be sneaking around fining people with illegal fireworks)
P - Is there a problem here?
My dad tried to talk as EM cuts him off
D - This lady wa-
EM - THESE PEOPLE STOLE OUR SPOTS FROM ME AND MY ANGELS AND MOVED OUR STUFF BACK INTO MY CAR
When P heard that he had that “Sure B*tch” look on his face.
P - Sir, you go ahead.
D - This lady is disturbing our 4th of July! She tries to get our spot, and claim it’s hers! And she says she had this spot last year! We did!!
EM - NO! He is lying! Officer, how can you believe that?
P looks around on the top of my garage and sees a camera facing the alleyway where the argument occurred.
P - can I see the footage of this camera?
EM tried to drive away but the officer POPS her tires before she does 🤣
EM - Wha? WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY CAR? I AM PRESSING CHARGES!
P ignores her and asks for the footage. We get it and show it to him. He is in shock.
P - Ma’am I am going to have to ask you to leave!
EM - What!?! That did NOT have any evidence. They photoshopped it!
no comment 😂
The cop then proceeded to check the trunk of her minivan, only to find more than 3 packs of illegal fireworks!! In our city, there is a fine for $1000 for illegal fireworks. (Sometimes we tend to sneak some in 🙂). She was fined 4 G’s and left in a huff with her popped tire. Lol
We had a cool 4th of July after that and we never saw of her again.

Fuck job hunting
I'm a 26 year old who recently graduated with a bachelors in General Studies, a Minors in Communications and a CIS Certificate. I have been working basically continuously since I was in high school in shitty, dead-end retail/warehouse/car-lot jobs. I know I don't have a "good" degree but I was able to finish university without going into debt and this shit took a lot of work, tears, sleepless nights and panic attacks whether you think what I got was valuable or not.
What I (realistically) want is a job that I can work remotely doing whatever the fuck (would like something content creation/writing/customer service related but at this point I really don't care). I've given up on ever being able to afford somewhere to live in my area (Fraser Valley/Vancouver), I have friends of mine that work two jobs and are barely getting by with 4 roommates in a two bedroom house in a shitty part of town. My sister just got a bachelor apartment for $240,000 and she has a better degree than I do and still needed to get a loan from our parents. I have a minivan that I'm building a sleeping platform in the back of it and I'll just do that until I somehow get fuckign $60,000 or whatever together for a down payment on something somewhere or just say fuck it and keep doing that forever because I like driving around and everwhere in Canada that actually has people living in it (and jobs available) is stupidly expensive to live in. I don't really even care about hourly wage or salary, I just need enough to pay for food and gas or to afford shitty accommodations in whatever city ends up actually giving me a job doing something not completely dead-end (assuming it's reasonably possible to live there on a normal non-rich person wage).
I'm also applying to tutoring, writing/copywriting, sales, media, advertising/marketing, journalism and customer service jobs in both mine and other cites across Canada, I've applied to 100+ jobs at this point. So far I have gotten ONE rejection e-mail from a place (after I filled out a 25+ min long quiz to submit my application) and no other place has even contacted me back to tell me that they threw out my application. I'm tired of working in retail, car lots and warehouse jobs plus even if I did go back to that there is no way I could afford a place to live based on what I was getting paid at my previous job. I'm trying not to act like the world owes me anything but I feel like my standards are so low that I should be able to find something at this point.
I have a property formatted resume, I have volunteer experience, I have a university degree, I don't have any gaps in my employment despite being a sometimes part-time and sometimes full time university student with a (verified) learning disability, I have design and writing experience and examples on my website (not corporate work experience but university project/volunteer experience) and I am writing custom cover letters. I am also editing my resume for almost every job that I apply to (including trying out different fonts, formating types, changing the order, adding or removing older experience) as well as including a website (made by me with my name as domain name), phone/texting number and a professional (my full name) email on both my resume and website. I've even made two custom resumes in indesign/photoshop/illustrator just to see if that would make a difference.
I feel like it shouldn't be this hard, I'm a few steps away from selling dirty socks/panties on e-bay or seeing if there is a demand for slightly overweight white dudes on onlyfans.
