I blame Paggy. Once she tilted her head it opened the floodgates for all manner of niceness.

Terrible state of affairs.

Do you need a handhold yourself there OP? <head tilt>

Oh FFS. I had a thread a while ago in which 100s ofumsnetters not only held my hand but gave me a virtual hug. It got me through one of the worst times of my life. If you don't like it, don't read the threads.

Well, I’m impressed if people can change their pants with only one free hand.

I find it a helpful indicator of threads to avoid, so on that basis YABU.

manofsponge Mon 18-Aug-14 16:44:13

Aaaah, but who are you to say "who are you to say what is a big deal to someone and what isnt"?

And who am I to say to you, you are you to say "who are you to say what is a big deal to someone and what isnt?"
