So, DH, DD2 and i are looking to rent place in a big city. Last night we went to look at place and talk to the two people who are renting it.

It was a very plush, glass fronted apartment, very open plan. We said hello and they asked us to take a seat and gestured to some leather settees.

There was a biggish, short haired dog on one settee wearing, what looked like, a long t-shirt. I noticed something glistening in its lap and bent down to touch it. It was wet and warm and i realised the dog had wet itself. In fact i realised the settee was positively squelching in dog wee.

I rushed away down some steps to the kitchen area and started scrubbing my hands with hand wash and hot water. My DD2 came rushing after me to tell me to stomping a fuss and how i was being so very reasonable.

On the plus side there were very nice bright red, tiled work tops in the kitchen.

So was IBU to make such a fuss?

For what it is worth one of the people looked like was Celia from Monsters Inc. grin

Stop making not stomping, ffs, although i was stomping, i think.

Completely OTT.

I don't think you were fussing, I'd have washed my hands right away of I had stuck it in dog pee.
What did the dog owner say about it?

pillowaddict Tue 16-Jun-15 20:33:41

Why would you touch what was clearly dog wee?! I would also be a bit taken aback and put off at an animal weeing on a sofa, but would know better than to touch it grin I'd also have pointed out to the owners it had had an accident and see what their response was. Also, why was it in a t shirt? I'm now wondering if it was really a dog or a small hairy incontinent person?

You went to stick your hand in something that was glistening in a dogs lap?

You're lucky it was only wee.

I would have washed my hands as well though.

NotEnoughTime Tue 16-Jun-15 20:35:31

Not at all.

I would have done the same then used a scrubbing brush and a bottle of bleach as well blush

Why would you touch something glistening in a dogs lap? I don't get it shock

fleamadonna Tue 16-Jun-15 20:37:05

yabu - tiled work tops are awful.

cashewnutty Tue 16-Jun-15 20:37:19

Would it help to know that this happened at 2 am and i was spark out in bed? grin

I'm with scarletforya You had a lucky escape!

You won't catch anything horrible from dog wee through your skin, but appreciate the experience may not have been delightful. I think YWBU, and it appears your DD agrees.
You could have been more polite.
Do you have a thing about 'germs'? Or dogs?
Is the sofa included in the rental?

WorldsBiggestGrotbag Tue 16-Jun-15 20:38:08

You saw something 'glistening' in a dog's lap so went to touch it. Why?! YWBVU about that.

MagpieCursedTea Tue 16-Jun-15 20:39:38

Completely normal reaction to touching dog wee, however I'm also trying to figure why you put your hand in the puddle of wee!

MagpieCursedTea Tue 16-Jun-15 20:40:49

X post...

It was all a dreeeeam?

fleamadonna Tue 16-Jun-15 20:41:39

ah, cashew is this the ultimate lazy scriptwriters twist?

PHANTOMnamechanger Tue 16-Jun-15 20:42:23

so this was a dream?

gawd, i think dreaming about doing this is even odder than doing it TBH.

what had you been watching /reading/drinking last night?

cashewnutty Tue 16-Jun-15 20:42:42

It was indeed all a dream! But i woke up completely weirded out and convinced it happened. Anyone else had weird dreams recently?

cashewnutty Tue 16-Jun-15 20:43:37

Yes flea it is. A writer i ain't.

PHANTOMnamechanger Tue 16-Jun-15 20:44:11

i have weird dreams, but they seem quite tame in comparison to yours! grin

MegMogandOwlToo Tue 16-Jun-15 20:44:41

:S how very odd

emwithme Tue 16-Jun-15 22:01:53

I didn't talk to my best mate for three days (we shared a flat at this point) because she wouldn't support me in my X Factor auditions. In my dream. much as I enjoy singing, I know I can't do it to X Factor standards

I have also slapped DH because he's been a knob in my dreams.

I can also tell when I'm ovulating because I have The Worlds Sexiest Sex Dreams Ever (TM). Was well pissed off when DH's really loud backup alarm went off on Saturday morning (he'd forgotten to cancel it when he'd gone away for the weekend) right at the ahem most inopportune moment. Especially as I was then awake with a horn and no husband blush

I dreamt that I was in a high building. One of my work colleagues jumped out of the top floor and died. He then became a zombie, and started charging up the stairs to get me. I tried to hide from him, and then to run away. He was very fast. I then fell down some metal stairs, and started yelling for another work colleague to come and help me. But he was in the cellar with the door shut and couldn't hear me.

The zombie was just about to get me and dh woke up up. I was yelling so loudly I'd woken him up (and he is a very deep sleeper).

This is the weirdest one I can remember!

Once dreamt (I think I was pregnant at the time) that my poor dh had died. I had him dressed in a white suit and went to see him at the funeral parlour where he jumped up out of the coffin and proceeded to sing 'stayin alive' complete with dance moves.

ive told him if he dies before I do im not having him dressed in white... you know, just in case grin

cashewnutty Wed 17-Jun-15 07:24:46

Haha scorpio Stayin-alive, white suited, zombie DH would be hilarious.
