YABU!!! Horribly unreasonable.

Completely shocking that you've not done this before - but well done for finally taking the plunge ;)

I've been here 6( I think) and I only did once.

Now go start a proper one.

Preferably delivering info in a drip feed and making stuff up when it turns out that everyone thinks you are BU.

You also need to think of a suitable sock puppet nn to come and back you up when you start getting roasted.

Harriet, come and join me behind the sofa.

Why am I a little bit pleased that IABU? Its quite an adrenaline rush on here.

But do what I do, only start ones that you are cast-iron guaranteed to not be U.

I've only gone as far as imagining ones. Like yesterday I heard a woman call her child FEE-OWW instead of Theo and it made me really cross. I briefly considered the shit storm I could create it with it on here and then decided it was best left unsaid.

Until now, obviously. But tut tut why give your child such a lovely name if you're going to bellow it out in the street with lots of added owww's at the end?

Motherhood has turned me into a grumpy old witch, I admit it!

AIBU is a load of old bollocks anyway. There are myriad human emotions, a vast range of reactions and feelings to the wonderful and complex situations life can throw at us. And we insist on boiling it down to am I reasonable like it's an even remotely interesting talking point anyway.

AIBU adds bog all to MN. And rarely are people unreasonable anyway. They just have feelings and then get told that their feelings are less worthy than other people's feelings.

Bollocks to it.

I always assume that people are so sure they are right that they can't imagine alternative views or they are just very naive. I wouldn't start one!
