To get a lift home by my friend and husband

(45 Posts)

And be ignored by my friend while she chatted to others and checked her Facebook?

WorraLiberty Sat 26-Jan-13 23:00:20

Errr YABU?

YANBU?

I don't know how you could possibly be either? grin

Did you chat to your friend and did she pointedly ignore you while chatting to the other people in the car?

If so, you might have done something to upset her without realising?

13Iggis Sat 26-Jan-13 23:01:33

Not nearly enough details to decide who was being rude! (Maybe you were imposing? Maybe she was on mumsnet not fb, which is always understandable?)
And whose husband was it, yours or hers?

AgentZigzag Sat 26-Jan-13 23:02:45

Were you sat in the back?

It can be difficult holding a conversation with someone over the noise of the engine.

What's she like with you normally?

mrsL1984 Sat 26-Jan-13 23:02:46

She offered lift this morning due to snow! Was her husband!

shesariver Sat 26-Jan-13 23:03:03

A few more details might be essential handy.

mrsL1984 Sat 26-Jan-13 23:03:34

She was on Facebook as she showed her something on it! Her husband chatted but not her! Perhaps I have upset her! Yes I was in the back

AgentZigzag Sat 26-Jan-13 23:03:39

I'm confused now!

What was her husband?

threesocksmorgan Sat 26-Jan-13 23:04:10

don't get the problem

deleted203 Sat 26-Jan-13 23:04:36

It is completely unreasonable to be on FB whilst giving someone a life home. I ban all mobile phones in my car. If I am giving you a lift then you have the courtesy to speak to me whilst we are driving - rather than texting your more interesting mates. (Aimed at teenage DCs mostly). Appreciate that presumably her DH was driving, but she's still damn rude to be on FB.

CloudsAndTrees Sat 26-Jan-13 23:04:38

So she was chatting to her husband and she checked her phone while on a journey?

I'm struggling to see the problem here.

PatsysPyjamas Sat 26-Jan-13 23:04:46

Are you drunk?

mrsL1984 Sat 26-Jan-13 23:04:46

Normally we chat about everything and nothing! No issues in conversation! Just seemed she was preoccupied and it felt like I was invisible

WorraLiberty Sat 26-Jan-13 23:05:06

When you say she chatted to others...do you mean on FB or were there other people in the car?

Where were you getting a lift home from?

AgentZigzag Sat 26-Jan-13 23:05:14

'She was on Facebook as she showed her something on it!'

As she showed who something on it?

AgentZigzag Sat 26-Jan-13 23:06:01

OP?

Was alcohol involved in wherever you were?

Hmmm?

mrsL1984 Sat 26-Jan-13 23:06:05

Her husband was driver! He picked us up she dropped me at home! I understand her talking to her husband but not once she aimed conversation at me! She was in Facebook! Her husband chatted away quite the thing

If you had been chatting all evening maybe she just ran out of things to say?

mrsL1984 Sat 26-Jan-13 23:06:19

No no booze

mrsL1984 Sat 26-Jan-13 23:07:13

Coming home from work! She was looking at a fb page of a hotel where they want to stay

HollyBerryBush Sat 26-Jan-13 23:07:52

Shes given you a lift, your complaining she isnt entertaining you through the journey. Get a bus next time.

NoelHeadbands Sat 26-Jan-13 23:08:13

Why would that make you unreasonable?

Presumably you mean was SHE unreasonable?

tethersend Sat 26-Jan-13 23:08:58

Was Sharon there?

Was anybody TRexing?

mrsL1984 Sat 26-Jan-13 23:09:40

I have my own car but due to bad snow she offered to collect me! We often car share to save coatings etc which isn't issue! I did volunteer the bus but she didn't feel it was appropriate for me to get the bus

Her husband picked you up and ran you home and you are upset because, despite this kind deed, she wasn't chatty enough? If thats right then yabvu.

toddlerama Sat 26-Jan-13 23:10:26

Just thank her for the lift and stop being so demanding.

WorraLiberty Sat 26-Jan-13 23:10:32

Sweet Jesus, was she supposed to hold a Q&A session with you while she did you the massive favour of asking her DH to drive you home from work in the snow?? confused

Do you realise how ungrateful you sound?

She'd just done a shift at work...she's entitled to check her phone and chill out in her DH's car as she sees fit.

Walk next time if it bothers you.

mrsL1984 Sat 26-Jan-13 23:10:43

WAsnt chart enough.... How about didnt talk to me once???

LadyBeagleEyes Sat 26-Jan-13 23:11:22

What an odd thread.
More details Op please.

Did you talk to her? Did she ignore you?

AgentZigzag Sat 26-Jan-13 23:11:58

How long were you in the car for?

WorraLiberty Sat 26-Jan-13 23:13:22

LBE you're a sucker for punishment aren't you? grin

PickledInAPearTree Sat 26-Jan-13 23:14:50

She sounds awful. Next time id refuse the lift and walk alone in the snow!

Oh that will teach her a lesson!

LadyBeagleEyes Sat 26-Jan-13 23:16:02

I like to see explanations, Worra.
I need detail before I can give my honest opinion grin

WorraLiberty Sat 26-Jan-13 23:21:17

I think she should have logged into FB live chat with her friend grin

maddening Sat 26-Jan-13 23:22:15

Maybe that's just her post work thing? Maybe that's always her time for fbing as a bit of a wind down?

HildaOgden Sat 26-Jan-13 23:24:54

I have to ask....do you speak the same way you type..ie lots of exclamation marks?It makes you sound very perky,she might not have been in the mood for that.

Pancakeflipper Sat 26-Jan-13 23:30:55

I would love to give you my indepth thoughts on this OP. but I am giving my mate a lift tomorrow morning and need to polish up my comedy act for her entertainment.

threesocksmorgan Sat 26-Jan-13 23:31:42

what does coating mean??

Today people seem to facebook together rather than actually communicate. Sad, really/

Hemlet Sat 26-Jan-13 23:34:09

You are making no Fucking sense.

Her husband picked you up then she dropped you home while she was on Facebook and ignored you and showed 'it' to 'her'?

What?

FarrahFawcettsFlick Sat 26-Jan-13 23:34:47

Good grief

<goes back to filing hard skin off feet>

DameFanny Sat 26-Jan-13 23:38:11

grin Tethers! Beat me to it!

LadyBeagleEyes Sat 26-Jan-13 23:42:22

Yeah. Good point Hemlet.
Who's 'her'.
<tired and drunk>
