Partner making snide comments on DDs facebook

DD is currently away in London for the week and this morning posted a status on facebook about her breakfast saying it was lovely and the chefs can cook.

DP then posted a reply saying "well that's generally what chefs do". A number of people have "liked" DPs reply which to me is a little like group piss-taking.

He's always doing this though and we've talked about it before and his answer is that she shouldn't post "dopey" status updates which he justifies by saying none of the other 14/15 year olds on his facebook post daft comments like she does and that she should have grown out of it by now.

AIBU to see that he's done it again?

I don't think what she said was dopey.

I think he sounds like a twat.

I don't think you should say anything to him.

Never engage with anything on facebook.

I would post about a lovely breakfast... or i post saying that I'm just enjoying a lovely glass of wine... what's immature about that?

Does your DD mind ,or does she take it as banter?

and why has he got loads of 14/15 year old friends on his fb?

MuckyBogStain Thu 25-Aug-11 14:48:47

It was the fact that she'd written the chefs can cook I think.

The teens on DPs friends list are generally family, friends of family etc

Maybe your DD should delete DP...not sure why he's on there TBH hmm

usualsuspect, yes she does mind, she's forever complaining about him commenting on her page

PerryCombover Thu 25-Aug-11 14:49:57

Most people of that age can take piss taking from friends but rarely from family in front of friends.
He should cease and desist

Why is he friends with his DD on FB anyway and lots of other 14/15 yolds?

She can block him if he is irritating her

that was my first thought

usualsuspect Thu 25-Aug-11 14:50:40

Tell her to block him seeing her updates then

Crosshair Thu 25-Aug-11 14:50:53

Tell her to block him.

Crosshair Thu 25-Aug-11 14:51:03

opps x post!

MotherPanda Thu 25-Aug-11 14:51:43

Well... there are some poor chefs about... tell dd just to delete your dp on facebook - problem solved. Then he can't see or post on her page.

DogsBestFriend Thu 25-Aug-11 14:53:32

Good god, you're bothered by that?


I wish I had your problems if that's all you have to complain about1

I'm just about to call the Police and have someone pulled on a Section 5 for swearing about me, being abusive and uttering some appalling lies on their FB page.

That is worth being bothered about. Your partner (child's father? Or do I suspect not?) stating the bleeding obvious is not. Unless your child has SN I'd have thought that 14/15 is more than old enough to cope with a little piss-taking banter by now - and if it isn't, something's gone very wrong.

ChaoticAngeloftheUnderworld Thu 25-Aug-11 14:54:09

Block him

Crosshair Thu 25-Aug-11 14:56:08

DogsBestFriend has it harder therefore you are not allowed to be upset.

MuckyBogStain Thu 25-Aug-11 14:56:48

yes Crosshair, how silly of me grin

moominliz Thu 25-Aug-11 14:57:37

I don't think it sounds like a dopey comment at all.

If your DP is so mature then why is he seemingly trying to publicly humiliate/mock a teenage girl?

Facebook isn't about showing off your intellectual prowess, just having a bit of fun, sharing photo's, etc. I think your DP needs to concern himself less with what 14/15 year olds are saying on Facebook!

TrickyBiscuits Thu 25-Aug-11 14:57:42

Well, if he puts stuff like that 'cos he's having a bit of a joke, then fine.

If he's getting his kicks my deliberately humiliating a teenager on FB then that's just plain mean.

DogsBestFriend Thu 25-Aug-11 15:00:24

Nothing to do with that, don't be an arse, Crosshair.

It has to do with this:

DogsBestFriend also has a 14 yo DD. DBF would tell her 14 yo DD to get a bloody grip, stop moaning and either give as good as she gets, ignore or de-friend/block my DP.

But then again I honestly can't see my 14 yo making a fuss about something so petty.

MuckyBogStain Thu 25-Aug-11 15:01:07

Well soz beef

FlorenceDay Thu 25-Aug-11 15:01:44

DBG, you're always so aggressive!

didyouseewhatshedid Thu 25-Aug-11 15:02:07

He sounds like an immature, snidy cunt to me.
