6 hours of prime childcare in place; triple stacked deadlines looming over me.... Let me see....

AIBU to think that cats should exercise some modesty when suckling their kittens?

AIBU to nick my neighbours plasma TV to pay my tax bill? ( cos it's my taxes that paid for it in the first place!)

AIB-entrepreneurial to sell Fruit Shoots through the gates at my DC school?

DropYourSword Tue 03-Sep-13 09:20:50

Pfffft you'll have to try harder than that. Think more contraversial!!

Beastofburden Tue 03-Sep-13 09:23:33

AIBU to use MN at all, given it is clearly a massive distraction technique for those of us who actually have a real job, and real women dont need this kind of constant validation? (disclaimer- this is not my opinion, just the most baity thing I would come up with...)

Beastofburden Tue 03-Sep-13 09:23:57

would=could [embarrassed]

AIBU to think that the park is for the whole community ?
(and graze my goats there)

AIBU to Botox my teenager?
(teachers say she'll spend the rest of the year in detention unless she drops the one-raised-eyebrow attitude)

DropYourSword Tue 03-Sep-13 09:36:42

AIBU to botox my FETUS to ensure or wins the bonny baby competition once born.

AIBU to kick kittens when I'm mildly irritated about something.

AIBU to find offense at ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING

...Haha!!

WetGrass Tue 03-Sep-13 09:40:33

BOB - you're right - that would sting.
AIBU to think that child protection agencies should have access to you MN posting history?

sword
AIBU to refuse to wax my vagina
(even though DH says it will reduce friction, and give me an easier labour)

DropYourSword Tue 03-Sep-13 09:49:49

Ooooooh, good one!

softlysoftly Tue 03-Sep-13 09:53:27

AIBU not to wear my newly prescribed glasses to drive because they make me look uncool?

Celadorhasacatandawaveequation Tue 03-Sep-13 10:00:11

AIBU to love the bedroom tax.
AIBU to judge everyone's parenting and think it's worse than mine.

WetGrass Tue 03-Sep-13 10:00:28

AIBU to stop DH spending ££ on new glasses?
(I can't take the pressure of him seeing me in crisp focus. )

WetGrass Tue 03-Sep-13 10:16:22

The problem is - the best ones are real thread titles (beyond spoofing).

AIBU to be dissapointed my 4 year old doesn't want piano lessons (!)

And I clearly remember

AIBU to repaint my neighbours side of the fence (again). (because the deeds say thats my fence - and 'mine' means that both sides are mine)

DropYourSword Tue 03-Sep-13 10:37:18

Was that second one REALLY a genuine AIBU!?

WetGrass Tue 03-Sep-13 10:44:37

Yes!

She was hanging over the neighbours fence painting it (she couldn't actually see their side from her house - but it was the principle of the thing).

HerrenaHarridan Tue 03-Sep-13 10:49:47

Why don't you just fuck off and do your work wink

WetGrass Tue 03-Sep-13 10:54:56

(thank you. Please chase me with pitchforks if you spot me lurking. I am unclean and carry the stench of procrastination. The stench of the plague of procrastination. )

elQuintoConyo Tue 03-Sep-13 10:57:57

AIBU to ask how often you wash your sheets/clean your bathroom/etc - yes, yabu, it's fucking boring and there was a thread about this LAST WEEK! <and breathe> besides which, that's not an aibu! That's a chat thread, get it right! <lies down in dark room with wet flannel on forehead>

AIBU to think swings, slides etc shoukd be big enough for me to use? The amount if bruises on my hips I've got from the swings - and I got stuck.going down the slide yesterday blush
* disclaimer: DS and I were the only ones there, I wasn't pushing toddlers out of the way/hogging!

AIBU to give 6mo a bag of monster munch?

Beastofburden Tue 03-Sep-13 11:18:02

AIBU to pretend to post a AIBU when what I actually mean is, "please validate me, I already know I am right".

the stench of procrastination has engulfed my desk and I am powerless to resist. the irony is I am typing away so much on MN that other people are quite intimidated by how much work I am clearly doing MWAHAAAAA

SoleSource Tue 03-Sep-13 11:20:03

AIBU to think that every single person claiming DLA is a liar and a scrounger!

AIBU to think that coca-cola is a suitable drink for my 6 month old baby? I always thought it was evil but when I was getting her ear pierced at my regular tattooist it was the only thing that stopped her crying.

WetGrass Tue 03-Sep-13 12:06:09

AIBU to give my 6mo diet coke?
(to help her lose weight - because the HV said she was too fat) .

DropYourSword Tue 03-Sep-13 12:14:56

<<On a total aside lurkedtoolong it's much better to be pierced by a qualified piercer in a tattoo shop than someone using a fun in Claire's or similar!>>

AIBU to expect you to agree my MIL is evilest woman in the world for this minor quirk

DropYourSword Tue 03-Sep-13 12:15:23

Ooops, a gun even!!

ParsingFancy Tue 03-Sep-13 12:16:54

YABVVVVVVVVVVVU to start a thread I don't find entertaining even when everyone else does.

You're obviously an attention-seeking bridge-dweller and must be hounded off MN to save the credulous thickoes from themselves.

(I am not procrastinating: I am supposed to be doing nothing. But I'm bored doing nothing, and am procrastinating about it.)

WetGrass Tue 03-Sep-13 13:33:56

Aargh - fuck me it's hard to concentrate!

What would it take for MN to buy me out of my current contract, and employ me as troll-baiter in chief?
