Or at least losing the will to MN for a few minutes, almost the same thing. Can you guess which ones? Titles were almost enough but the content made me a bit sad and shock and hmm

I give in, can't you give us a bit more to go on?

ConstanceNoring Sat 03-Sep-11 14:31:56

cake anyone?

DontShootTheDog Sat 03-Sep-11 14:33:59

one is near the top, one less so. I am a leftie socialist type and a feminist.

that should do it. also typing 1 handed so s'cuse lack of caps!

AIBU to eat my own feet

mil or clothes for birthday?

(likes game because it means I do not have to clean the bathroom yet even though I should tell you that is what the hides threads is for... )

I'm quickly losing the aibu love. Half of the threads aren't aibu's ffs!

nickelbabe Sat 03-Sep-11 14:48:40

grin

DontShootTheDog Sat 03-Sep-11 14:49:46

Private school one: TicK! Go to top of (state school) class

Agree, AIBU is shit nowadays

DontShootTheDog Sat 03-Sep-11 14:50:24

I think I'm going to lose the will to live around about Christmas time on here.

I joined just after Christmas so don't know what AIBU is like at that time of year but I suspect it'll be full of threads about....

MIL's dried up turkey
Ex wanting to see kids on Xmas day
Have I bought my child enough presents? (cue long thread itemising every single gift)
Whose house to eat at
SIL on a diet/vegetarian

And from Boxing day onwards....

DH didn't buy my a present
DH bought me a present but it's a pile of shit
MIL re-gifted her present
No-one bought me a present from my baby and she's nearly 2hrs old.

Worra, have you been here less than a year? I thought you'd been here longer.

Christmas I shall be hiding aibu. Too grinchy!

Worra - you are spot on, it's a delight I tell ya, a delight.

SuePurblybilt Sat 03-Sep-11 15:07:16

Worra - you have the joys of MN Underspending Boasts to come then. It starts with an 'AIBU to spend £100 on my DC this year?', cue 1500 reponses from parents who say they're only spending £3.50 and giving their children a satsuma and a sticker. Anything else would spoil them.
Then a further ten pages of Top Trumping, ending with some poster swearing blind that they only give their children a clip round the ear and they're grateful. All v. Monty Python and only funny for the first thread. After that, the Hide button is your friend.

worraliberty Sat 03-Sep-11 15:16:47

lissielou I've been here 8 months but no doubt it seems longer! grin

Oh I forgot about the under spending threads sue...no doubt we'll have "I cut a hole in my DS's underpants so he'd have something to play with on Christmas morning" grin

Skippyboo Sat 03-Sep-11 15:17:52

You lot are giving me a whole bunch of stuff to look forward to grin.

OP, I'm new and I hear what you're saying...

Hassled Sat 03-Sep-11 15:19:44

grin at all this.

Yes, Halloween will start of nicely with an "AIBU to demand pumkin emoticons?" thread towards the end of September, I guarantee it.

Hassled Sat 03-Sep-11 15:20:12

Pumpkin, although actually they're usually witches or something, aren't they?

SuePurblybilt Sat 03-Sep-11 15:21:10

ROAR at the underpants. I am going to steal that for my very own worra. Bloody brilliant grin

worraliberty Sat 03-Sep-11 15:21:57

Will there be anti fireworks threads to look forward to as well? grin

worraliberty Sat 03-Sep-11 15:23:06

<Awaits Sue's Xmas underpants thread during December> grin

ScarletLady01 Sat 03-Sep-11 15:25:26

I'm very new, this is rather enlightening. I didn't realise Halloween and Christmas etc bought out the worst in people.
