Whether they are large, pink decorative wooden letters propped up on a bedroom shelf ("SLEEP" - like I wouldn't fucking know that's what I'm meant to do in there if I didn't have a word telling me), or words splattered along the shop signs of so many wannabe cool bars and gastro joints (EAT! DRINK! RELAX! CHAT!), AIBU to detest these bloody words that have popped up everywhere in the past few years?! Maybe we should have some for sex shops too along the lines of: "SHOP-FUCK-SLEEP"
Any more suggestions welcome :-)

I saw a sparkly mosaic inspired black and silver one saying 'BATH' hmm

Yup. Thisnhas been discussed at length in the past

Themore LOVE someone has up, the more likely it is they hate each other

I have some for my kitchen which read EAT MORE CAKE. I keep meaning to paint them and put them up.

We have 'Love' above our bed.

It's twee, it's shit, it's utterly dullsfuck.

But we are twee/shit/dull grin

i almost bought some wanky letters spelling out N O E L once, but came to my senses, but only because they didn't have them in gold coloured

i'm not a fan either grin

YY hate them. Even before them, there was a surge in crockery/sheets/shower curtains offering you descriptive words for no reason. As if sleeping in Argos polycotton printed with DOZEsleep dream YAWN will make any blinking difference at all.

Hate it all.

I did, however, see a fabulous cross-stich sampler on Etsy, telling me to Fuck Off and Die. With roses. I luffed that, very much.

I've got 'Noel' too - bought in the sale (cardboard ones) - I'm going to cover them in christmas paper and put them on the dresser

LaurieFairyCake grin
SuePurblybilt I want that sampler!!! Classic.

MissTapestry Mon 26-Sep-11 17:39:19

I luuurve the one that just says HOME. Oh yes, thanks for that, I thought I'd wandered into next door again by accident grin

Lotkinsgonecurly Mon 26-Sep-11 17:43:19


Thats what we'd have in our bedroom.

SuePurblybilt Mon 26-Sep-11 17:43:30

There is also a house locally that is right on the pavement and has the LiveLaughLove one facing outwards, into the street. So they are not only bossy, they are also sitting on their sofa, looking at evoLhguaLeviL cut from pink plywood. Which must be nice.

<yes, I do realise it would not be exactly that grin>

RESIGNATION (bit expensive to get that one though, it's probably £8.99 a letter or some such wankery)

ShoutyHamster Mon 26-Sep-11 17:56:15

Hah at your FIL nickschick !!! - the Trespassing Teamaker. There you are minding your own business when suddenly a man BURSTS in and starts making tea all over the place grin

YouWinOrYouDie Mon 26-Sep-11 18:04:07

OMG! would inspire jealousy in visitors if festooned above the marital bed. WTF for the homework table hmm

I am U-Turning on this. I am now v.tempted by POINTLESS. Or FUTILE.

Mandy2003 Mon 26-Sep-11 18:49:26

Sueperblybilt - the thought of one facing outwards into the street made me LOL - people must think it's a brothel! Not neon is it?!

I always wish I could re-arrange the letters to something rude. But I would like ARSE, just randomly in any room but the toilet!

nickschick Mon 26-Sep-11 18:55:52

Shouty the builder took to locking the door for fear my FIL would do it again .......fil is 81 and ex SAS. grin.

YouWinOrYouDie Mon 26-Sep-11 19:09:47

I'd buy the bathroom one.

LOL would also be good for above the bed grin
