Someone was moaning about a mess left in PE and should they trash the place, leave napkins food etc all over the floor.

and the person concerned arrived on the thread

SassySask Sun 24-Feb-13 21:45:23

No but I was in PE the other day and the parents left a huge amount of mess all over the floor. Menus, cutlery, food, napkins. I was utterly disgusted!

BelindaCarlisle Sun 24-Feb-13 21:46:01

ok imagine the thread going along like this,.... then the offender pops up and got really cross

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Sun 24-Feb-13 21:46:41

How on earth did they know it was them?

PedlarsSpanner Sun 24-Feb-13 21:46:53

gawd YES

had the toddler used a potty neath table too?

BelindaCarlisle Sun 24-Feb-13 21:47:24

oh shit!! i dont remember that.

BelindaCarlisle Sun 24-Feb-13 21:48:21

i dont know. i think was deleted.
i was the only person around one Saturday when Gina Ford popped up. ( this was YEARS ago and was bfore the lebanon affair)

The only reason I still come on MN is for the day the person the OP is slating steps up.

I cant believe I missed it! Link please!!

I don't remember that

But I do remember the owner of some tea room turning up when someone had complained about it.

And another weird one about a bouncy castle party in a hall...moaning about the parent of another child whose birthday it was too.

The (reg) OP was never seen again after the other parent came on to post.

The first thread I was truly flamed on was when I posted about the huge amount of mess and waste left on the table opposite us one afternoon (I did wait until I got home to type my angst at the amount of buffet food wasted)

Sorry Belinda,I don't remember that thread though.

BelindaCarlisle Sun 24-Feb-13 21:49:24

i sometimes plan to arrive on a stupid petty thread about it and pretend to be the complainee (? is that even a word?)

montmartre Sun 24-Feb-13 21:57:04

I don't remember a potty being involved... but I remember the thread grin

WeAreSix Sun 24-Feb-13 21:59:11

Oh I remember the party thread! Didn't the mum who came on to defend herself end up sticking around?

gardengate Sun 24-Feb-13 21:59:50

Are you complaining about me again belinda? God, this is the second time you've done it. God, if a family can't even go out for tea angry

AlisonMoyet Sun 24-Feb-13 22:00:27

Lol

montmartre Sun 24-Feb-13 22:02:16

worra- is that the one where another parent wanted to insist the organised party was to celebrate her child's bday too? (fairly recent, about 8 mo ago?)

Hassled Sun 24-Feb-13 22:05:09

I remember it. It was car crash stuff.

I also remember a truly bizarre thread about how someone had thrown a football at the OP's cat, which was innocently sat on a fence. Cue much "that's outrageous! People are AWFUL! Who would do that?".
Anyway - then someone posts admitting it was her. Cat shat in her garden on a daily basis and she'd flipped. She was very sorry. Cue much "Cats are bloody horrible - I don't blame you".

AlisonMoyet Sun 24-Feb-13 22:05:58

think the cat one was a wind up. Apparently it was hilarious.

AlisonMoyet Sun 24-Feb-13 22:06:06

( it wasnt)

HotPinkWeaselWearingLederhosen Sun 24-Feb-13 22:08:37

I remember that thread. I read it handing behind a cushion grin

TattyCatty Sun 24-Feb-13 22:14:16

I love the fact that the Pizza Express thread is still remembered! The OP was talking about my friend and I - friend was an established poster on here, and it was my first ever venture into the world of MN smile. Sadly the thread is long gone as it was in Chat, but it dates back to May 2007. Definitely no potty under the table - usual amount of food flung on the floor by very small children eating lunch (both of our DDs were around 15 months old), but a particularly memorable occasion as my DD managed to break both a glass and a plate. We had offered to sweep up, but the OP clearly hadn't heard nor noticed my desire for the ground to open up and swallow me after such a disastrous meal. blush

montmartre Sun 24-Feb-13 22:15:41

bluelights- you complained about someone's mess... but you got flamed?
Why on earth?

montmartre Sun 24-Feb-13 22:17:04

Ha! I knew there was no potty wink
Food on the floor? well that's blw for you...

WorraLiberty Sun 24-Feb-13 22:17:39

montmartre and WeAreSix yes that's the one grin

Most strange how the OP never returned after the 'other parent' showed up though.

<< Chinny rub >>
