Backstory here

why oh why am I setting myself up for another arsekicking?

Just got a text from cousin's mum (my aunt) as cousin does not have my number (intentionally actually) "Hi jst so u no my baby shower will be in June so dont make eny plans!" (forwarded message written by cousin)

WHAT??

So 1. You're doing a fucking save the date for an occasion designed for people to lavish gifts upon you? Hmmmm kay.... and 2. No-one can make any plans for the entire month of June, lest they miss the chance to come and shower you with gifts?

Would I BU to text back "Just fuck off"?

MrsRajeshKoothrappali Mon 21-Jan-13 16:08:13

Texting fuck off might be a bit much.

Making plans for every day in June would be amusing though!!

BupcakesAndCunting Mon 21-Jan-13 16:09:16

I am boggling.

I thought that the baby shower ridiculous fucking idea anyway IMO was arranged FOR you? So that you don't look like a sad, graspy sod presumably?

redskyatnight Mon 21-Jan-13 16:10:06

She just sounds excited to me. Think you may be reading too much into it.

Aspiemum2 Mon 21-Jan-13 16:10:38

I haven't read the back story because I feel your OP says enough - baby shower. My 2 most hated words, don't see the point and never have. With all the dc's we received lovely gifts after they were born and they were most appreciated but certainly not expected or demanded off a list. I just hate the very idea of them so I wouldn't go on principle.

Am aware this probably makes me a miserable old git and I'm ok with that grin

gordyslovesheep Mon 21-Jan-13 16:10:55

can you send her this picture

FancyPuffin Mon 21-Jan-13 16:11:12

I'd text back with something like;

I could go but I don't want to.

Fuck off.

<Helpful>

Mollydoggerson Mon 21-Jan-13 16:11:22

Why do you care so much. Just ignore.

Pigsmummy Mon 21-Jan-13 16:11:29

Don't be rude just ask what date?

BupcakesAndCunting Mon 21-Jan-13 16:11:40

LOL Gordy! grin

grin

BupcakesAndCunting Mon 21-Jan-13 16:12:12

Oh, the date is some time between the 1st and 18th of June.

Cortana Mon 21-Jan-13 16:12:16

Bupcakes, I would like to invite you to a game of supermarket skittles (going to invite GetOrf too), sometime in June. Sorry I forgot to mention it earlier.....

HintsOfRain Mon 21-Jan-13 16:12:44

Haven't read the back story but think it would be unreasonable to text back just fuck off ....

Just say can you let me know a date asap as I'm not free for the entire month of June.

Cortana Mon 21-Jan-13 16:13:19

Gordy, did you draw that all by yourself?! I think it should go on the fridge! grin

Booyhoo Mon 21-Jan-13 16:13:30

you dont like your cousin. we get it.

AreYouADurtBirdOrALadyBird Mon 21-Jan-13 16:14:35

Just text back- June no gud hun cuz I bz evry day. Soz

gordyslovesheep Mon 21-Jan-13 16:15:08

sadly not Cortana my memory isn't that good grin

manicbmc Mon 21-Jan-13 16:15:31

Text back - say you won't be able to make it (and I don't blame you not wanting to sit in a room with her and her chavvy mates slurping blue wkd through a straw).

Then just say you hope she has a lovely time and you'll get her something when the baby actually arrives.

BupcakesAndCunting Mon 21-Jan-13 16:16:35

I'm there Cortana. Whatever the date. I am THERE.

Boo, why don't you just sod off with your snidey comments? I am allowed to post on whatever subject i choose, within reason, unless Justine has died and handed over MN to you, in which case I am very sorry.

LadyBird I like it, I like it.

I think "sad ,graspy sod" sums it up nicely.
Don't forget :"Fuck off Chunk" (she'll be huuuuuge by June)

And all of June you'll be pricing up washing up liquid so you don't run out.

(Not stalking you Bups honest)

Booyhoo Mon 21-Jan-13 16:19:40

so you can post what you like but people who disagree with you cant? why are your snidey comments about your cousin acceptable if my comments aren't?

Booyhoo Mon 21-Jan-13 16:22:09

why does a person you never see annoy you so much? surely the normal response would be to think "wont be going to that" end of response. your feelings about your cousin are strange.

MumVsKids Mon 21-Jan-13 16:23:06

Can you not book a holiday, coincidentally from 1st - 18th June?

BupcakesAndCunting Mon 21-Jan-13 16:23:11

Heh heh, 70. "Fuck off chunk" is apt in so many situations. All of them, in fact. All of the situations.

What I am saying booyhoo or whatever you are called, is, don't come on a thread to snipe about the OP's choice of topic. If you have something to say then say it. Not just "hnnnnnnnng" which is pretty much what you just said.

BupcakesAndCunting Mon 21-Jan-13 16:23:55

So you can never be annoyed about someone unless you are in close, personal contact with them?

What a pious existence you must lead.
