Responding to anything with a "tinkly laugh"

CoolToned Fri 16-Sep-16 23:06:50

What's a tinkly laugh?

HunterHearstHelmsley Fri 16-Sep-16 23:06:53

No is a complete sentence.

Saying 'did you mean to be so rude'

Well fuck yes they probably did. Please don't ever it.

'Leave him with the kids and go for a spa day'

No, fuck spas. Go to the pub and get smashed.

'Head tilt.'

You'll look like a twat with a cricked neck.

Isnt this just going to make people feel shit if theyve given advice in good faith and people just use this thread to hint and sneer at them?

Let the calls of po commence. That's fine.

'What you are poor? Learn to drive and you can do all kinds of jobs'

'Oh you are poor? Do peoples ironing for money? Walk their dog? Sell your soul and kidneys on eBay'

Fucking toilet brushes

FlibbertigibbetArmadillo Fri 16-Sep-16 23:10:55

What is this zoflora everyone talks about?

skyyequake Fri 16-Sep-16 23:10:56

"can you outsource?"

There are probably more grin

'Have you considered childminding?'

As though it's an absolute doddle and all SAHMs should do it for a bit of extra cash. It's a vocational, demanding and overwhelming career that is not for everybody.

Tiredbutfuckingfine Fri 16-Sep-16 23:11:45

Toilet brushes are evil

ABloodyDifficultWoman Fri 16-Sep-16 23:12:49

"Show him this thread" Yeah - because I really want him to read in black and white that I think he's a philandering small-dicked mommy's boy with a God complex don't I grin

"No he can't be cheating, he doesn't have the time".... hmm

It's no wonder the NHS is at breaking point.

Buy a slow cooker

Fine if you want slop for tea every night 😂

BiscuitMillionaire Fri 16-Sep-16 23:15:02

"My baby wakes up every 2 hours throughout the night and I'm exhausted and at the end of my tether."

"Oh just co-sleep, then you'll be fine."

LumpyMcBentface Fri 16-Sep-16 23:15:05

Get a cleaner.

Because everyone can afford one, obviously. hmm
