Real personal change is difficult, and being reminded of past failures while making an effort to improve can feel defeating...”why change if everyone is going to still see me as what I used to be anyway”. Further, keeping your feedback encouraging, and on a one-to-one basis lets them feel accomplished, without the pressure of the public eye.

If you have ever been in a situation in which you were really upset with someone, you will probably understand how frustrating it can be when theyremain calm. By not seeming bothered, they are signaling that the situation isn’t upsetting them—and that they are better able to control their emotions. When you are a screaming ball of anger, you don’t want the other person to just sit there and play it cool. So as hard as it may be, when someone is screaming and abusing you, the best thing to do is to just remain cool and calm. The mismatch between your emotional state and theirs will cause them to feel even more upset—and later, a bit embarrassed.
Edit: Of course this can vary from place to place but it's a good idea to stick to this mentality.
I heard a quote once to, "walk with those who seek the truth, and run from those who claim to have found it." Anyone who thinks they've got some big problem worked out entirely is probably missing something - whereas the most nuanced and hard to encapsulate understanding of a given situation is likely to lead to a less conclusive opinion.
I've just noticed that when I make friends quickly with a bartender, not only do they tend to make my drinks quickly, there is more care put in. Plus, because they're good at small talk, they usually make good friends! Sometimes I ask them to make something that is their favorite or their own creation. I've gotten some of the most creative and delicious cocktails this way!!! Edit: Grammar
Learn from rejection. Learn that the person might be terribly boring when you get to know them. Learn that they might be just as amazing as you hoped.
It all starts with the confidence to make the first move!
Sometimes, it's best to let stupid people go on being stupid, no matter how much you want to call them out on their bullshit. I learned that today listening to my boss make small talk with a customer. These aren't exact words, but the general content of the conversation is there.
B: That's a cool water bottle you have there. Is that a filter in it?
C: Yes, it is.
B: Does it change how the water tastes? I have never tried them before.
C: Oh yes. It tastes way different. It even raises the PH.
B: Raises the PH?
C: Yes. It brings the PH up to 9. You know, a lot of people will tell you that a PH of 7 is neutral, but it gives you cancer. A PH of 9 doesn't give you cancer.
She goes on to tell him that it also removes radiation and is made by some Christian organization (maybe it turns it into holy water as well?). If at any point my boss had shown any doubt to what she was saying he would have lost her as a customer.
I later mentioned it to him and we had a good laugh at the ridiculousness of her "science".
Sometimes, let stupid people be stupid.
Most dryers have a panel that pops out of the front-facing bottom of the machine. Two clips hold it on. Others are only accessible from the rear via 6-10 screws holding a thin sheet of metal.
Not only will it give you a chance to clean 15+ years of other people's dust/lint out of it, but I just cleaned mine and found $40+ dollars of coins! A little hidden gem sitting in your house!
I've seen that this works in Firefox sometimes as well. u/Sayoru23 Says it works with Opera as well! This will work for only certain types of gifs so it doesn't work everywhere but gifs uploaded to Reddit get formatted in a way that allows this. Imgur for the most part does as well

It also directly demonstrates value of your own as being someone who is supportive of their co-workers which managers know increases morale and productivity.
My sister was always a selfish. First time my dad did this, she was so pissed because I chose the bigger piece she obviously cut for herself. I forgot what type of sandwich it was, I think ham and cheese. Delicious. She never did that again.
I feel like it is worth noting that this is for variable expenses and income that is not fixed. (Salary)
For example, if electricity costs you about $100-$200, write it into your budget as $200.

I was introduced to the VW community at a young age by my cousin who was a bit older than me. He learned everything through friends and other enthusiast starting with air cooled and eventually moving to the water cooled scene. The only cars I’ve owned have been VW and now Audi. They are the same parts and follow the same engineering so everything I’ve learned along the way has helped me tremendously in saving money and time with car troubles, diagnosing and repair. Enthusiast forums like VWVortex and Audizine as well as local car clubs have been such an amazing resource throughout my life.
This hit me tonight while trying to help my Aunt diagnose a problem with her Hyundai Tucson. There is virtually no information or help out there!
