So the mum is trying to get as much sun as she can. She knows she has to make dinner but keeps changing her mind what to make so she can get more time in the sun.

If she wants more time in the sun, she should tell her partner who is playing football in the garden to make it. Problem solved.

Agreed.

Sleepgrumpydopey Sun 07-Jul-13 21:28:00

Really? On a glorious sunny day like today you are sat indoors moaning about an ad that is about a fictional family?

kim147 Sun 07-Jul-13 21:30:56

TBF - it was posted at 9pm.

If that's ok. But don't worry, I don't have a life.

Lj8893 Sun 07-Jul-13 21:31:26

I also think this everytime that ad comes on.

LouiseSmith Sun 07-Jul-13 21:33:50

Really, the fact you wasted time and energy writing a post about something fictional, is ridiculous.

Haven forbid, Tesco doesn't feature a family picnic, that could be bedlam!

kim147 Sun 07-Jul-13 21:34:14

There's also the one where all the kids come round expecting food.
She should tell them to fuck off back to their own parents to get food and not sponge off her.

<Must stop overanalysing and focus on the real issues>

There's a supermarket ad at the moment featuring 'The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year' by Andy Williams, for a second I thought they were getting in super duper early with their Christmas advertising.

kim147 Sun 07-Jul-13 21:37:29

So no one should complain about subtle sexist advertising or messages should they?

That should reduce the thread count in FWR

That one where every child for miles around arrive and she feeds them pisses me off.
I just think "Sucker!" confused

Growlithe Sun 07-Jul-13 21:39:31

squoosh that really bugs me. It's not clever, it's just stupid.

Ilovemydogandmydoglovesme Sun 07-Jul-13 21:39:44

LouiseSmith you obviously didn't see the multitude of indignant threads at Christmas about the sexist Asda ads on tv. There were loads and my god they went on forever. grin

YouTheCat Sun 07-Jul-13 21:40:51

All supermarket ads annoy me.

They need to get some different advertising agents.

Aren't most posts on here about something that isn't really worth the time & effort? I know mine are! If we all stopped posting unless it was about something worthy, chat would be a lot emptier for a start grin

kim147 Sun 07-Jul-13 21:44:31

Most of my threads are pointless. Even in AIBU.

Lj8893 Sun 07-Jul-13 21:45:01

And yet louise, you are "wasting time and energy" to post about someone "wasting time and energy".

Sleepgrumpydopey Sun 07-Jul-13 21:57:10

Aibu to shop at asda if I don't agree with their marketing strategy?

Yes you are

If you don't shop at asda why do you care about their marketing as it is so awful it has lost them your custom?

kim147 Sun 07-Jul-13 21:59:51

I don't read Page 3.
I care about that though,

WorraLiberty Sun 07-Jul-13 22:02:12

I haven't seen the ad

Does the guy actually tell her to stop sunbathing and go and make dinner?

Sleepgrumpydopey Sun 07-Jul-13 22:02:27

Ok what have you actually done in the last month to address issues you don't agree with? Of do you just moan about poor old women's rights?

I'm a confident woman and an ad could never make me feel worthless.

So what have you done proactively?

kim147 Sun 07-Jul-13 22:03:26

Just whinged on here grin

Sleepgrumpydopey Sun 07-Jul-13 22:04:47

I'm not a feminist but I donated loads of stuff to wimens aid clothes etc. instead of buying new uggs I decided to send that money to Haiti during their crisis when I saw a woman with her dead child. After the drummer lee rigby was killed I sent the kids to school wearing their poppies.
Do something with your life or stop moaning

kim147 Sun 07-Jul-13 22:06:23

You know fuck all about things I do and I'm not going to rise to your bait.

Sleepgrumpydopey Sun 07-Jul-13 22:07:13

I know Aibu can be light hearted and I'm probably being snappy cus I'm hot and tired but just felt this thread was just stupid.

kim147 Sun 07-Jul-13 22:08:27

So what is it's stupid - have you seen my Chewbacca one
