2022.01.26 21:07 HauntingNature 10 Y.O. B&G Macaw - Fun, Playful, Sweet, Stubborn & Aggressive. Help!

Hi All! I've had my B&G Macaw (Jasper) since he was a baby. I was 17 when I got him, and I had no idea what I was in for. 10 years down the track, this bird has tested me to no end! While he is super sweet, smart, hilarious and playful, he can be very temperamental, stubborn, rude and aggressive.
In the first phases of Jasper's life, I couldn't comprehend what was required of me in order to raise a macaw without behavioural issues. I didn't focus on training him enough. I was unsuccessful in flight training him, and as such his wings are clipped. Believe me, I tried! I know wing-clipping is frowned upon, but it is not attainable at this point in time. I dream of a future where he is able to take flight, but I know the older they get, the harder they are to flight train.
I had harness trained my previous parrot - I lost my Princess Parrot of 17 years last year. He was my soul mate, and his loss has left a hole in my heart. His loss devastated me, but it's given me more time to bond with my macaw. Which can be hard, because of aforementioned behavioural issues + my previous parrot being such a sweetie.
Anyway, before I can even THINK of flight training my bird (if that's even an option, I am not attached to it), I seek advise or even encouragement in general related to Jasper's behaviour. I've come a LONG way with Jasper. He can do quite a few tricks, has a great daily schedule, eats well, gets plenty of outside time, has plenty of human company etc. But here's a few things.

  1. I am the only person in my house (living with mum and dad) that is dedicated to both training and disciplining him.
  2. When it comes to discipline, I try ignore his bad behaviour. Walk away. Reward good behaviour. But when things get really bad, we use a water spray bottle. We use this very rarely. It was what got him out of his SERIOUS aggression. Now, it's a very occasional thing. Just seeing it is usually enough. But if he really messes up, he gets a spray.
  3. Jasper bites. E.g. If he doesn't want to step up, instead of not stepping him, he'll try and bite. I do my best not to force him into anything. I am trying to give him the option of NOT choosing aggression. Unfortunately, he sees biting as one of his main ways to communicate. It's nowhere near as bad as it used to be, but it's still a thing, and I don't want it to be.
  4. He is obsessed with my father, who lets Jasper walk all over him. Dad does not make efforts to train or discourage Jasper's bad behaviour. Dad gets bit more than any of us. Like, once a fortnight for dad vs. once every 6 months for me. He gets bit BAD too. Because he truly has no capacity to train Jasper. He allows play biting, doesn't walk away when Jasper's acting up, etc. I have tried to get my dad to stay away from Jasper, but Jasper is still OBSESSED with him. Jasper is both his sweetest and his worst with my dad.
  5. Jasper gets carsick. This is a side point, but i'd love to take him out to be in the world more, but he get's so sick on rides! :(
  6. Jasper is uninterested in me 80-90% of the time (because I am the one who trains him!). The three of us in this house contribute to his care, perhaps I should take over more of the routine? E.g. waking him up in the morning, putting him in his outside cage. When Jasper is interested in me however, we have the best time together. Last week, he let me give him cuddles for the first time in a LONG time.
If I could go back in time, I wouldn't get a Macaw. I wish my parents did some research. I wish they had interest in training him. I wish we realised he was basically a child that we're going to have for a lifetime. But I made that decision, so I AM committed. For life! (My poor partner, haha!).
I am seeking general advice about any of the above. If you have ANY wisdom to share, please do. I'll take anything at this point, as I feel relatively alone on this journey! Jasper is an amazing bird and I know he has such great potential. Losing my old bird definitely gives me room to work on this relationship and I want to make the most of this opportunity. Thank you in advance.

So today is my birthday and I am 19 years old now, it’s quite crazy that I’m saying this since I’m not far from reaching my 20s. It feels like life’s just going so quick but nonetheless, I’m very blessed and I look forward to enjoying my birthday today.

Hypothetically, if you dumped 1 ton of 1-2 inch glass shards onto a beach in the water, how long until the shards are smoothly polished and how long until they are micro glass/sand?

I was looking back on my bank activity and saw I did one transfer too many and yet nothing really happened. Is it giving me some leeway or will something happen later?

2022.01.26 21:07 trulymightypotato Experian Doesn't Seem to Think I Exist (either that or I completely broke it, and I'm not sure which is better)

I've been trying to get pre approval for a car loan, but in order to do so I have to temporarily lift my credit freeze from Experian.
Experian says they can't verify any of my information, and when I call I can't get ahold of any person to talk to. I tried filling out the request form. I've tried resetting my password, and it says my account name doesn't exist. I've tried resetting my account name, but I got told there was an error and "we can't honor your request" and to call their customer service (which was automated no matter what options I clicked and kept redirecting me to the exact same forms that didn't work). They also keep asking me for a pin, but neither I nor my parents remember being given one when I first put the freeze on. (None of us have any emails for me of any sort from Experian, either, even probably-routine ones.)
They keep wanting me to send quite a lot of very personal information in the mail (which would take far too long to get there to buy a car any time soon, and I'm very anxious about sending it through mail given it's very personal information), so I'm hoping someone has any insight of something else I can try before that. Or if this means something much worse is going on.
(If it's relevant, several years ago TransUnion didn't think I existed either, apparently because I said I didn't live at any listed options for addresses for a security check when I hadn't lived at any of those addresses. I was able to call them and get through, though. Haven't had any other problems or unusual things happen between these two things.)
I know for sure I have an Experian freeze on. Do I just need to bite the anxiety and mail in info? Do I need to be watching for anything else?
