I haven't read the whole thread I am so important I don't care if this has been said fifty times already, it's not been said until I've said it.

AIBU? give me some sympathy and agree with me

I don't mean any offence but... I am a twat

I'm not being rude but... I am a twat

There must be more. Snark away...

Don't click if you don't like the Mail

I can't find a better source for this non-story because it's a non-story

Or

I like causing bun fights over DM links.

K8Middleton Thu 04-Apr-13 17:10:57

I'm allowed my opinion! = I have the intellectual prowess and reasoning skills of a jar of Marmite or I get all my information from The Daily Mail

K8Middleton Thu 04-Apr-13 17:12:56

I'm not looking for a bun fight = I'm so totally looking for a bun fight I have just drooled in my lap in anticipation.

<I missed name checking Hec for her excellent suggestion which I then borrowed>

MiaCulper Thu 04-Apr-13 17:14:38

You sound lovely. = Despite your OP making it plain that you are distressed/hurt/angry/confused, I'm going to pick you up one word you may have used in an ill-judged manner in the white heat of posting.

(Often followed by a little humphy face.)

K8Middleton Thu 04-Apr-13 17:15:28

You can't disagree with a regular without all their clique piling in to have a go = I have been an arse, called on it and I'm still persisting in being an arse.

AmandaPayneAteTooMuchChocolate Thu 04-Apr-13 17:15:38

"My cousin's, daughter's friend had X Y Z happen" = I am making this up because I want to make my point sound more weighty but I have no evidence.

K8Middleton Thu 04-Apr-13 17:16:26

Ooh these are good!

FrustratedSycamoresRocks Thu 04-Apr-13 17:17:41

Leave the bastard = he's a twat, and I have nothing useful/helpful to add to the conversation, but I want to stick my oar in anyway.

K8Middleton Thu 04-Apr-13 17:19:03

I don't know if anyone's said this but... = I don't care if you have, look at meeeeeeeeeee!

K8Middleton Thu 04-Apr-13 17:21:08

where's the OP? = TROLLLLLLL!!!!

usualsuspect Thu 04-Apr-13 17:22:21

interesting first post = Troll

Tee2072 Thu 04-Apr-13 17:22:44

I don't want to brag, but do you think my child is gifted because they can recite all of Shakespeare, do advanced maths and has written a novel? He's 2. - I know my child is gifted. I just like to brag.

MiaCulper Thu 04-Apr-13 17:24:40

The other night there was a brilliant chorus of, "Where's the OP?" and, "Still no update?" etc.,etc, starting at about 9.15pm, when the OP had said that she was going to have a serious talk with her DH, who was expected home at 9pm.

FGS, give the woman half a chance before you start your rubber-necking.

K8Middleton Thu 04-Apr-13 17:24:52

I've just seen that thread Fanjo. Inspired I give you...

I don't want some big debate = I want to rile you all up because I am an attention seeking twat and/or 14 and on school hols.

usualsuspect Thu 04-Apr-13 17:26:07

marks place = I'm not really interested in your plight I'm just nosey.

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Thu 04-Apr-13 17:26:09

grin tee. Or
I'm worried my child isn't normal because he is really interested in learning latin and has an iq of 1062.

Away with you, braggy braggerson! grin

ParsingFancy Thu 04-Apr-13 17:26:13

But I want to protect the poor, mug-like, lesser MNers from getting drawn in by an evil troll = this is the 73rd post calling troll in two pages, but I couldn't bear to be left out of the pack pile-on.

(Lesser spotted nowadays.)

K8Middleton Thu 04-Apr-13 17:27:20

Oh yes Tee grin Which leads nicely to that other staple of the G&T board...

Just enjoy him = I am bitterly jealous and just want to piss on your chips

You sound like a twat - You are a twat.
