To be Very Pissed Off at My Dad for Bringing a Lovely Baby Toy Around?

It's a lovely Butterfly Mobile, but I just know that my Mum put him up to it. He'd never manage to buy something that nice by himself. The other day he tried to buy me a Baby Monitor. HE KNEW that I bought one months ago, I showed him and everything.

Plus I'm 7 months pregnant already and he knows that I'm a very organised person, I never would have left it so late to buy such an essential piece of baby equipment.

Honestly, he's useless and so unsupportive! He's been on and on at me my whole pregnancy because he doesn't approve of me becoming a single mother. I just wish he'd shut up about it.

What are you irritiated by exactly?
That he bothered to seek advice on a present to you?

Yes. Total bastard bringing you a lovely present. Bang out of order.

Don't be so ridiculous!

I bet you are all huffy with him

How is it useless to offer to buy a monitor?

There is a side issue of his disapproval - but maybe is trying to make amends?

Saved being very pissed off for something else

YABU you silly cow. Just don't go round on Xmas day with murderous thoughts <my spider senses are tingling>

HarlotOTara Tue 21-Dec-10 19:52:47

How could anyone ever think you woulf be unreasonable you self-absorbed control freak

DanceInTheDark Tue 21-Dec-10 19:52:52

YABU - he brought you a gift, he didn't napalm the neighbourhood.

And don't go to Lower Loxley - I think something bad is going to happen there.

Oh Helen, you poor thing! It's tough, isn't it?

I'm guessing this is your first baby if you think at 7 months everyone has already bought their 'essential' equipment like baby alarms hmm

well done you for being so organised. Now for fucks sake sit down and have a cup of tea and a bit of cake - all that stressing about sweet fuck all will not be doing the baby any good.

chrimblycompo Tue 21-Dec-10 19:53:47

Joking i guess?

ah the old Butterfly Mobile, universal mark of shame at having an unwed mother in the family.

By essential equipment, you do mean the monitor right, PLEASE tell me you're not talking about butterfly mobiles there? grin

I am very confused. Clearly I need some Baileys fresh air. I have NO idea what you problem is, he seems to me, to be trying.

peppapighastakenovermylife Tue 21-Dec-10 19:54:23


And I rarely used a baby monitor with DS and not at all with the other two. Not the point I know...

RockinRobinBird Tue 21-Dec-10 19:54:30

I hardly think that a monitor is essential at 7 months pg...

BoysAreLikeDogs Tue 21-Dec-10 19:54:34

what an asshole

he's toxic, he is

cut off contact and NEVER speak to him again

I mean, what kind of person finds out what gift might be suitable and then GOES OUT AND BUYS IT?

eh? EH?


PinkElephant73 Tue 21-Dec-10 19:54:53

never mind it could have been worse - at least you didnt get bawled out for mislabelling the yoghurts, eh.

APixieInMyMulledWine Tue 21-Dec-10 19:54:59

Only clicked on 2 threads this eve and both of them have confused the hell out of me.


Firawla Tue 21-Dec-10 19:55:03

yabu and ungreatful. weird post!

melpomene Tue 21-Dec-10 19:55:44

YABU to be annoyed that he bought you a gift. Also with the baby monitor, if you bought one months ago it's unreasonable to expect him to remember that and it sounds like he meant well.

YANBU to be annoyed if he is criticising you for being a single parent, though.
