To think that it's weird that friends teenage son wants to come out with us?

So it's a civilised night out for me and a friend tonight. 2 middle aged friends going for a drink and a catch up at a local pub and I get a text to say, do you mind if teenage son comes too. He's a lovely guy but its a girls night out. It's not the first time either. He's just a regular guy, with his own mates and a good job, so why on earth he wants to spend his Friday evening with his mum and her mate is beyond me. AIBU? I feel churlish if I text back to say, well, yes, actually, I do mind.

My eldest son has been out with me loads of times. He brought his friend too when it was my friends hen night, they had a great time.

I think it's lovely actually.

Me and dh love to go drinks with our older lads. They love it too as we pay!!!

Have been out with couples and them if they home and that's fine.

However if just a girls night then no, don't get me wrong the lads would come for the free booze but I wouldn't ask as it inhibits conversation and would make my friends uncomfortable.

Actually they blush and go all 'young man' on them so its a tad embarrassing.

Yrnbu.

I used to go out with Mum sometimes too and all my friends liked her as well, so don't find the thought of intergeneration socialising that weird. Fine to want some time with your friend by yourself too though.

If it was just going to be you and your friend, then no, I wouldn't like that! If it was a big group, that's a bit different.

It was meant to be just me and a friend, rather than a group but he came with us and a lovely time was had by all. He spent 50% of his time messing about on his phone but he had some really funny apps, which kept us amused. We then went for a curry and a curry night is always a good night! So maybe I was being a touch unreasonable after all!

Sounds like he was just hankering after some drinks funded by the Bank of Mum grin

No stunt girl, to give him his dues, he pays his way.
