BrunellaPommelhorse Thu 28-Mar-13 19:26:47

things people in rl LOVE that Mumsnet hates:

Hot weather
Co workers having a drink
watching tv (apparently watching Dvds doesnt count as watching tv ;) )

BrunellaPommelhorse Thu 28-Mar-13 19:27:19

oh and Halloween and New year.

nars Thu 28-Mar-13 19:28:07

what a load of wank

libertyflip Thu 28-Mar-13 19:28:25

I'm not, I'm everso happy me.

crashdoll Thu 28-Mar-13 19:28:36

We only had this thread a few days ago.

BrunellaPommelhorse Thu 28-Mar-13 19:28:46

oh I think they like wanking.

BrunellaPommelhorse Thu 28-Mar-13 19:28:57

Did we? oh sorry smile

And the point of this thread is?

And your AIBU is?

FreddieOrFreida Thu 28-Mar-13 19:29:35

I hate Halloween but I don't mind the rest, I'm not miserable either.

TroublesomeEx Thu 28-Mar-13 19:29:57

If it helps, I don't like hot weather/summer IRL either.

bedmonster Thu 28-Mar-13 19:32:23

WEDDINGS! You forgot weddings! MN hate weddings - going to, staying over at a hotel for, buying a new outfit for, gifts for the new couple... grin
IRL, I have never met anyone who hates/boycotts weddings !

We like wine and biscuit though grin

Purple2012 Thu 28-Mar-13 19:33:57

Money poems - we all hate them too.

I got one of them today!

FancyPuffin Thu 28-Mar-13 19:34:30

I'm full of fucking joy me.

Badvoc Thu 28-Mar-13 19:36:27

I hate everyone and everything today.

ethelb Thu 28-Mar-13 19:36:38

um, first world problem OP, first world problem.

MNetBlackpoolLE Thu 28-Mar-13 19:36:55

I like Summer, I would much rather be too hot than cold.

MardyBra Thu 28-Mar-13 19:37:35

Am I bring unreasonable that most Mners are miserable?

Sorry. Makes no sense to me. M

JamieandtheMagicTorch Thu 28-Mar-13 19:37:36

There are a lot of people pretending in RL, IMO. Here is where we can admit it.

Yeah, i ducking hate Halloween, and parties, and New Year

JamieandtheMagicTorch Thu 28-Mar-13 19:37:55

Fucking - obviously

tethersend Thu 28-Mar-13 19:39:10

I'm happy and I'll punch anyone who says otherwise.

slatternlymother Thu 28-Mar-13 19:39:14

Oh no, is drinking with co workers tacky now? How dreadfully annoying.

I think most people dislike New Year; enforced jollity if you ask me, and I'm only 25!

UnChartered Thu 28-Mar-13 19:39:29

you know what MN really hates?

being referred to as one being Mumsnet is the site, not the members

and pedants, they hate pedants

<possibly very confused>

wine anyone?

slatternlymother Thu 28-Mar-13 19:39:34

grin tethers

Maryz Thu 28-Mar-13 19:44:32

I'm happy to hate you all.

<punches tethers>

<grabs wine from UnChartered>

<wanders off muttering>

Maryz Thu 28-Mar-13 19:45:09

And by the way, in case you all didn't know, I like Christmas. But only in December.

Maryz Thu 28-Mar-13 19:45:36

And I think I like summer. I can't really remember because we haven't had one since about 1994.

slatternlymother Thu 28-Mar-13 19:46:39

<threatens maryz with bottle>

Maryz Thu 28-Mar-13 19:47:39

As long as the bottle is full [hopeful]

UnChartered Thu 28-Mar-13 19:48:17

<calls thread police>

Maryz give me back my wine and get thee to the etiquette section

magimedi Thu 28-Mar-13 19:49:28

I love drinking! wine - 'tis really a pink gin.

landofsoapandglory Thu 28-Mar-13 19:50:01

I like Summer.
I like hot weather.
I like photographs.
I like watching tele.

I am, however, as miserable as fucking sin today.

Viviennemary Thu 28-Mar-13 19:55:49

I'm never happier than when complaining about something but whether this makes me miserable or not I don't know. I suppose it does. grin

Tweasels Thu 28-Mar-13 19:56:48

Whilst I admit there are many bizarre things that some people on here hate (toilet brushes, saying pardon, poor people etc.)

Photographs and the Summer....Really?

I'm literally jumping with joy, I'm so happy at the minute. In fact, I'm so happy I might go and punch a kitten. Anyone wanna join me?

Maryz Thu 28-Mar-13 19:57:06

etiquette? What's that?

Vivienne, it makes you happy, but everyone around you miserable, I suspect.


UnChartered Thu 28-Mar-13 19:57:46

it's what you have before you start your 2nd glass, Maryz grin

chin chin

Maryz Thu 28-Mar-13 19:57:54

BernadetteRostenkowskiWolowitz Thu 28-Mar-13 20:03:01

yall are very funny. and remind me all of this posh princessy girl on CDWM the other day. She had beautiful teeth and drank her red wine through a straw. The less priveleged diners were so shocked.

[bottoms up]

HildaOgden Thu 28-Mar-13 20:06:30

You forget to mention they (we?) love when someone posts a potential stirry thread and it descends into random giddiness grin

Tweasels Thu 28-Mar-13 20:10:29

Helpful as always Maryz grin

NuhichNuhaymuh Thu 28-Mar-13 20:15:22

<fights everyone for the bottle of wine>

Have to pubs are closed tomorrow


ginhag Thu 28-Mar-13 20:18:24

Snorted wine out of my nose at unchartered's post way back there. ^ The 'pedants' one.


Viviennemary Thu 28-Mar-13 20:18:48

I think you might be right Maryz. But I'm too old to change now. grin

TheBigJessie Thu 28-Mar-13 20:19:34

While I can whinge about most of the things mentioned in the OP, I wouldn't say I'm miserable. I'm quite happy because I leach the joy from other people's lives.

WhatKindofFool Thu 28-Mar-13 20:55:27

People on Mumsnet need to get a real life. I'm only on it because I am in a psychiatric hospital and I don't have anyone normal to talk to at the moment. It is great for getting your anger out and showing your hatred for the world.

UnChartered Thu 28-Mar-13 20:55:52

how very dare you gin


Maryz Thu 28-Mar-13 21:04:24

And now I don't know whether WhatKindOfFool is being truthful, ironic, or just plain lying.

All three would demand very different responses.

NuhichNuhaymuh Thu 28-Mar-13 21:09:28

maybe she's being all three?

FairyJen Thu 28-Mar-13 21:13:37

I'm happy bein miserable. Where does that leave me?!? shock purgatory?

<flounders in weird space time continuum>

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Thu 28-Mar-13 21:28:16

Is that the full list of things we must like in order to be allowed to be called happy?

I don't like being hot but I am happy to be slightly chilly. can I substitute the first two for Spring and Cool Weather?

YouTheCat Thu 28-Mar-13 21:30:06

Is it wrong that I have rolled my eyes and thought 'ffs you can tell it's the holidays'. grin

Sunnywithshowers Thu 28-Mar-13 21:43:03

YABU. But I like your user name.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 28-Mar-13 21:45:33

Being miserable makes me happy.

I like being miserable. Having said that, I'm a bit of a cunt. HTH.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 28-Mar-13 21:53:52

Id give anything to be a cunt. I'm just a twat. <misssssery>

FairyJen Thu 28-Mar-13 22:09:11

It's easy to be a cunt pickled just be even more of a twat! grin

Don't worry, I'm a cunt, twat and a Möse (derogatory German word for ladybits). I can't type genitalia, that would be offensive.

southeastastra Thu 28-Mar-13 22:10:05

i does help to have somewhere on the www to moan

Arabesque Fri 29-Mar-13 13:50:47

I'm a RL person (unlike the others on here). I HATE weddings and New Year's Eve. I also hate SUVs blocking up suburban roads, people who park in disabled spaces, people who don't keep their dogs on leads, pedants, B&Gs who ask for money instead of presents....... Have I missed anything out?

thebody Fri 29-Mar-13 13:53:46

Parking in parent and child spaces absolutely disgraceful..

SadGiantPanda Fri 29-Mar-13 13:57:31

Some of us have good reason to be miserable. sad

LadyBeaEGGleEyes Fri 29-Mar-13 14:01:09

Quite SadGiantPanda.
There was a lot of panda haterz on that thread.
They all wanted to extinct you shock.
Don't worry though, there are many of us that will fight against pandaism wherever it occurs.

SadGiantPanda Fri 29-Mar-13 14:02:50

Thank you, LBE. Your support is much appreciated.

midastouch Fri 29-Mar-13 14:56:23

I am miserable a lot but it makes me happy grin its because in RL i hate people! (except my DCs i love them) Id rather talk to my dog.

i like the bunny smiles! they make me happy too smile

people do seem to get very cross at very small things. we have one poster on here who has an absolute right to be Queen of misery. I dont get the hatez people experience cos their neighbours cat looked at them funny or summat.

DameSaggarmakersbottomknocker Fri 29-Mar-13 16:15:55

Oh don't bring cats into it. I don't like cats. Or swearing.

I like cake.

RandallPinkFloyd Fri 29-Mar-13 16:38:36

I like all of those things.

I do hate peas though. Little green bastards.
