Here are 5 things you should know.
1. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disorder.
People who live with type 1 diabetes constantly deal with misconceptions that revolve around type 2 diabetes, which is much more prevalent in adults and the overweight. It’s really a different disease, and the lack of understanding can be frustrating, especially when someone is constantly told they don’t “look diabetic”
2. If you ever find an animal stuck in a glue trap, oil can be used to free them.
Sometimes people set glue traps without realizing that anything can get stuck in them and that it is a slow and agonizing death for the animal. But if you ever do find an animal stuck in one, vegetable oil or any other oil found in your kitchen can be used to loosen the glue and free the animal.
3. A prenuptial agreement doesn’t mean you think you will divorce.
Most people think of prenups as an impending sign of divorce. Meant to protect assets. It’s not. It’s just a detailed contract pertaining to marriage.
Marriage is a contract not just a commitment to love each other, but also a commitment to be together for life. That can take different forms but usually means living together.
A prenup isn’t just about what happens when you divorce it’s also about what happens while you are married, i.e. under contract. It can detail how you mix or don’t mix finances, how you prepare for retirement or children. It can even detail penalties for not picking up your socks or a reward system for meeting life goals. A prenup is meant to protect both/all involved parties as an extension of the marriage contract.
So many marriages end because no one wants to have the hard convos before the wedding. Sit down discuss how you want your life together to look and make a plan using a prenup.
4. To always read service dogs vests.
Legitimate Service dog (SD) handlers often go to great lengths to keep their most important FAQ on patches of the SD’s vest. If it’s important enough more than likely the vest will say it somewhere. There are always exceptions but below is at least one example of why this may be really important.
Some quick tips say to call 911 if you see an SD handler passed out on the floor but it depends, sometimes they faint daily and add “do not call 911” to the SD’s vest to avoid having to deal with ambulances and paramedics every single day.
5. Is your Amazon Prime order running late? You can get a $5 promotional credit each time by contacting support.
An experience shared: “It doesn’t sound like much, but it adds up… I’ve probably gotten around $100 worth of promotional credits doing this, over the life of my Amazon account. Normally things arrive on time, but it’s not uncommon for them to take a few extra days.
When the item doesn’t arrive, I just contact support and say I was really looking forward to getting it the day it should have been delivered, and ask if they can give me a courtesy credit for the inconvenience.
I have never been refused. It’s normally a $5 credit, but I’ve gotten more than that on larger orders or bigger screwups. It doesn’t work for “free” Amazon – only on Amazon Prime orders. Also, the credit can only be applied to orders sold by and shipped from Amazon directly (no 3rd party sellers). The credits don’t expire.
It puts money back in your pocket (assuming you plan to continue using Amazon Prime in the future), and it’s not unethical in the slightest bit.”
