Lighthearted thread.... But honestly now!

I get on very well with my neighbour... But....

She invited me round for coffee and cake today, but all she gave me was half a cappacino... And no cake!!

I feel like I've been so let down....

I NEEEEEEED cake in my life

Pancakeflipper Wed 23-Jan-13 16:30:48

Ditch the bitch.

hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman Wed 23-Jan-13 16:31:24

Leave the bastard!

Oh. Sorry wrong thread.

Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Wed 23-Jan-13 16:32:35

I think you are right pancakeflipper. Offers of cake and no goods provided!!

but she's babysitting for me later so I can go to work so I really can't do that

invite her round for tea and biscuits, the give her stewed tea. amend nothing else.

that'll learn her grin

LTN immediately!

Sue for false advertisement as she mentioned cake to get you round and did not produce said cake.

From now on when anyone mentions cake and coffee please get it in writing. This happens to many people

If she is babysitting for give children red bull or some sugary substance

Bella88 Wed 23-Jan-13 16:34:10

Have a root in her bin next time for some condemned cake grin

Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Wed 23-Jan-13 16:35:54

I don't think I want to come home to a 14 month old high on red bull!

Anyone ever tried making a cake with no sugar? Would that be an evil enough comeback?

DawnOfTheDee Wed 23-Jan-13 16:37:19

I would stand right outside her window and, making sure to maintain eye contact, eat an entire cake very slowly. Then mouth the work 'cake'.

Then repeat. Every. Single. Day.

helenthemadex Wed 23-Jan-13 16:38:58

what a bloody tease, its just so wrong when someone does this to you, get new friends with lots of cake

Catchingmockingbirds Wed 23-Jan-13 16:40:38

She brought you into a verbal contract that she's only fulfilled half of... Completely unreasonable.

You could stand infront of her livingroom window eating cake and just stare at her so she knows what she's done.

Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Wed 23-Jan-13 16:40:44

I don't know whether I give her another chance as she is pregnant!


I bet she ate my cake before I got there!

Catchingmockingbirds Wed 23-Jan-13 16:41:19

grin xpost dawn!!!

DawnOfTheDee Wed 23-Jan-13 16:43:21

grin catchingmockingbirds

Haha....can't believe we came up with the same twisted solution! Great minds and all that...

atthewelles Wed 23-Jan-13 16:43:56

LOL at advice from Dawn and Catching.

SpicyPear Wed 23-Jan-13 16:44:28

How long did you stay there? You should have said "Cake now, or I'm leaving". Maybe you should get CBT to learn how to be assertive with cake witholders.

BabsAndTheRu Wed 23-Jan-13 16:45:30

DAWN, god one.

BabsAndTheRu Wed 23-Jan-13 16:46:36


Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Wed 23-Jan-13 16:46:49

I was there for over 2 hours

atthewelles Wed 23-Jan-13 16:46:56

Call round to her house and when she opens the door smash a big cream cake in her face.

BabsAndTheRu Wed 23-Jan-13 16:47:31

That should say good not god, stupid auto correct.

schobe Wed 23-Jan-13 16:48:56

Have you ever thought that perhaps she expected you to bring cake?

It's a nice gesture when you pop over to someone else's for coffee.

I bet she's livid over there.

schobe Wed 23-Jan-13 16:49:15

And pregnant. Livid and pregnant. Oh dear.

KC225 Wed 23-Jan-13 16:50:43

No cake!

Talk about rip off Britain. Report her to Watchdog.

DoodlesNoodles Wed 23-Jan-13 16:56:12

When I invite my nieghbour round for a coffee she brings the plated cake with her. She is my favourite nieghbour ever. Once she bought macaroons shock

DoodlesNoodles Wed 23-Jan-13 16:57:32

Brought not bought...blush

Although she did buy them too so I am not technically wrong. confused

Pigsmummy Wed 23-Jan-13 16:58:34

That's emotional abuse OP!

MooMooSkit Wed 23-Jan-13 16:59:55

YABU, she sounds like a right bitch. I would get a post-it and just write the word cake to it and stick it to her door. grin

MooMooSkit Wed 23-Jan-13 17:00:12

I meant, YANBU! smile

SpicyPear Wed 23-Jan-13 17:00:46

Two hours?! The woman is a monster. Move house.

freedom2011 Wed 23-Jan-13 17:04:27

maybe she was hoping you'd bring the cake? and is at home thinking, I provided the venue, I provided the coffee, I'm up the duff, why couldn't my neighbour stop by the bakery. but yeah YANBU, I always warn people I'm big and happy eater before I go round when invited so they know to put on plenty of cheap carbs. Like "Cake? Yes, I am so looking forward to our catch up and coffee and CAKE. I love a slice or 3 of CAKE me"

Maybe she burnt it and the husband ate it grin

Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Wed 23-Jan-13 17:23:48

To be honest I don't think she would have made it!

I just feel so let down. I feel like I've been the victim of her pregnancy related cake eating.

Is there an authority I can complain to?

MusicalEndorphins Wed 23-Jan-13 17:26:33

Send many cake pics to her on facebook with no comment.

DawnOfTheDee Wed 23-Jan-13 18:00:41

We are the authority. We are mumsnet.

<dons cult-y type cloak and begins swaying>

Stuff the cake but HALF A CAPPUCHINO shock

It's all flipping fluff and milk, no substance .
What's half of nothing ,eh?

I've got a Tassimmo . And cupcakes with the turd shaped buttery icing swirl. They are lush and I don't even like butter! wink

Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Wed 23-Jan-13 18:51:26

She's got a tassimo too... I don't think it was working properly...

I'm swaying backwards and forwards crying... I may have to divert to Tesco on my way home to get my cake fix.

Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Wed 23-Jan-13 19:55:27

Will Anne Robinson want my cake less story?

-- I bought the bitch a Tesco finest fudge chocolate Yule log before Christmas.... I give cake... She don't return the cake--

wanderingcloud Wed 23-Jan-13 22:18:19

What?! No cake?!

She didn't even offer flapjack???



SoleSource Wed 23-Jan-13 22:47:20

Yeah but she created extra syrup on your pancake, didn't she, dirty.

Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Wed 23-Jan-13 22:52:00

I really think I'm on the verge of ditching her...

She let my child fall in the cat bowl!

SoleSource Wed 23-Jan-13 23:07:02

Evil evil bitch

What did the police say to her about that?

Pancakeflipper Wed 23-Jan-13 23:17:49

Next time you get invited, take a cake and pot of filter coffee and don't offer her any of it. You just sit at her table and eat and drink.

missnevermind Wed 23-Jan-13 23:35:11

We are the authority. We are mumsnet

grin If ever the truth said in jest grin

Rowanhart Wed 23-Jan-13 23:59:26

Laughing at Dee. Whatever happened to the woman whose his and ate the cake?

atthewelles Thu 24-Jan-13 10:13:26

I think you're all being V.V.U. I bet she had a lovely victoria sponge sitting waiting in the cake tin and, in a moment of pregnancy related amnesia. forgot all about it.

OP, instead of bitching, why don't you just get up on her roof with a fishing rod with a cake attached to the end of it and every hour, on the hour, just dangle it in front of her kitchen window for a minute before reeling it back up. She'll remember the cake eventually and be mortified that she forgot to bring it our; or to finish filling up your cappucino mug.

Mogandme Thu 24-Jan-13 10:21:32

There are 2 options

1. She burnt the cake and her husband ate it (selfish bastard)
2. She fed it to the birds - Do you have birds where you are?

are you sure she is pregnant?

perhaps she just ate all the cake?

Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Thu 24-Jan-13 12:48:43

No birds here to feed... Her bloke may have eaten the burnt cake, but I'm sure she would have been on here complaining if he had.

I really don't know what to do Mumsnet Jury. I like her, but what with the cake incident and then letting my son try to drown himself in the cat bowl I just don't know if it's worth it anymore.

I'm guessing she's pregnant.. She did want me to look after her other child while she gives birth... I'm now tempted to tell her I'm busy baking a cake when she knocks on the door in labour!

Or is that too harsh?
