Sent message to DS1s friend's Dad (he does the drop-offs at school and is a SAHD)

something like " hope you had a lovely summer - DS1s mum here, wondering if _ would like to come and play next Mon or Tues?"

reply came back at 18.40 "what about 2 night Hun"

I did not reply
then
about 10 mins later "hello r U there?"..

Have not replied and pretty sure he has the sort of phone where you can see what the previous message was - ie that I was arranging a playdate....

shall I ignore and text later in week with same message?

Reply innocently 'I think that will be a bit late for DS1'

Depends.

Are you single?

Is he hot? grin

Emphatic NO to both of those.

:-)

Um sounds like he's married hampton !!

I would text back 'tonight is too late for ds, could you do the Monday or Tuesday?'

Some people just text like that so I wouldn't think it was odd. And some kids stay up really late in the holidays mine included

Depends what he's like generally what you read into it.

PlacidApricots Wed 27-Aug-14 11:25:03

How egotistical of him that the only reason you could possibly have to text him is to arrange a shag on the side.

squoosh Wed 27-Aug-14 11:25:24

'sounds gr& wot u wearing. u r sch a hunk'

Or ignore. grin

Do you think he has misconstrued your comment " come and play"?grin blush

I think it was either aimed at his DW or meant innocently. Without describing too much he's really not the sort.

LadyLemongrab Wed 27-Aug-14 11:28:45

Sounds like he was looking for a babysitter that evening.

Shame!

Then I would call him rather than text. Or call the landline if you have it, hoping the mother will answer? Hopefully he is just a plonker who has worded his text badly rather than being a predator.

Good luck!

Just reply "sorry, have plans tonight, which is why I suggested next week"

ChelsyHandy Wed 27-Aug-14 14:27:20

I don't think he did this by accident at all, sorry!

LumpenproletariatAndProud Wed 27-Aug-14 14:31:19

"I would call him."

Shit no, dont call him! Just say as suggested at the start "that is/was a bit late for ds"

atticusclaw Wed 27-Aug-14 14:31:52

Ignore it and just say "how about dropping x round on Monday at 10am?"

theendoftheendoftheend Wed 27-Aug-14 14:37:27

I don't understand what people think he might have meant by that text? Why didn't you just text back 'tonight? no sorry bit late now! only free monday or tues if either of those suit?' or something along those lines.

What placid apricots said.

It might be a come on- or he might just be desperate to palm his kid off on someone ASAP. Her reply would be direct but without embarrassing yourself if he was talking about his son.

ItsANameChanger Wed 27-Aug-14 15:13:50

I don't understand? Is this being taken as a Come On?

Because to me he is simply asking if you want his son round tonight (or whatever)

Confused

ItsANameChanger Wed 27-Aug-14 15:14:45

or asking if he wanted to play for the 2 nights?

wildfig Wed 27-Aug-14 15:30:05

Does he normally Hun you?
Is his son called Umberto or Uriah, and your text read 'wondering if U would like to come and play'?
Is he under the erroneous impression that 'hun' is a popular txtspeak term equivalent to mate but for ladies?

Pinkje Wed 27-Aug-14 15:36:03

Predictive text fail perhaps.

Amrapaali Wed 27-Aug-14 15:38:25

Won't anyone think of poor Umberto? Or uriah?

JeanSeberg Wed 27-Aug-14 15:39:25

I don't understand either.

You asked him if his child wanted to come and play, he replied to suggest the same evening yet this is secret code for wanting a shag??
