To want to punch this grannie in the face

We go to a stay and play every Thursday morning, usual thing toys for 90 mins then a few songs with instruments to finish the session. Every single wk this boy a year older than my son dives in the box and pulls out the 1 accordion. My son every wk wants ago on this instrument, the boy claims it. Then drops it to run off and play else where. His nan knows how much my son wants ago on it but she holds it out of reach from my son. It's so cruel his little lip drops. I would never let my child hog a toy wk in and out. Makes my blood boil !

Clarty, the Ruth thing is confusion. Some people think the top bit of the inside if your mouth is roof. It's not. It's ruth.

Unless they're up on their Ancient Greek etymology of course.

Sorry I'm still giggling at quint cutting her mouth on her accordion.

Seriously this can't be about a real accordion? Really?

My dd1 plays accordion - seriously, she's doing exams, in a band. Has a decent 2nd hand instrument that (honestly) cost us £900.

No nursery has this! My dd is 13 and needs her dad to carry it to the car for lessons/band practice!

Toy accordion for sale here.

Next time she does it, throw yourself on the floor, kicking and screaming that it is your son's turn with the accordion.

Alternatively, just ask her firmly but politely.

I was thinking mouth organ too blush

Buy a real, fuck off big accordion off ebay and bring it in a massive handbag. When she starts dangling the toy one to taunt your son, shout "who wants that shitty little thing. Fuck that. This baby's all yours, my boy." And do a cocksucking gesture at her before helping him manhandle the beast into hideous sound.

That's fantastic!

Say something to her.

You can 'expect' people to do anything you like, but you have to open your mouth and say something.

The list of things that I 'expect' people to do is huge. grin be nice, don't drop litter, share, be reasonable, be kind...

But people don't always do what you 'expect' that they will.

So go over and say that your son would like to play with this toy. Don't say nothing because you feel that she ought to notice and ought to know that it's not fair and ought to do what you feel is the right thing.

Debbie, I suggest you buy your son a bagpipe for stay and play!

(And dont confuse it with a magpie - seems like that is something I would do - going by noisy made)

is this thread long enough to qualify for classics?

it has made me laugh A LOT

I hope that Debbie will come back and update us after the next stay and play session, I need to know if she chose to punch the gran or pinch the accordion!

Ooo, feel sick now. Been up all night clearing up DD's vomit envy

Ladies can we stick with the issue at hand please.

Why the fuck would this bitch hang on to the accordion? Surely someone else at the group has noticed this other than just Debbie. Does granny hold it behind her back? Or does she pretend she's playing with it? How does she justify herself? Debbie, what's the score?

Did you ever confront her rather than passively aggressively seething?

I think a good cuff in the face is appropriate.

Why don't you answer the question you have been asked again and again.
WHY DON'T YOU ASK HER FOR IT?

Yes I am shouting.

BECAUSE HAGFISH CAN'T HEAR VERY WELL, IT'S NOT THEIR FAULT, THEY'RE DOING THE BEST THEY CAN!

Poor Hagfish with their hearing destroyed by accordions.

You could go to the zoo

HoneyDragon Sat 26-Jan-13 08:00:47

Don't be silly Tufty. The Zoo don't have accordions.
