Was I being unreasonable to laugh at dh for this?

In the car, earlier on, ds1 (18) was describing a crash he had on his bike, at a skate park, when he broke his wrist - and was telling us how many times the word 'fuck' had gone through his mind before he hit the floor. Dh became a tad po-faced about the use of the word, so I may have used it a few times ("Boys - don't say fuck, because dad doesn't like you using the word fuck and thinks it is fucking rude for you to keep on fucking saying the word fuck").

Dh started to tell us, in somewhat pompous tones, how, when he was a lad, out and about in the car with his parents, he wouldn't have dreamt of using That Word in front of them - and suddenly a car nearly pulled out in front of us on the roundabout, almost hitting us, and forcing dh to swerve. Dh shouted, "FUCKWIT", - and the rest of us fell about in helpless fits of laughter at the irony. It took him a while to see the funny side.

I think laughing in that situation is acceptable

However you will get told your husband is Disablist for use of the term Fuckwit

I prefer fucknugget for screaming at motorists. It is highly satisfying to say. Not unreasonable for the laughter at all thoughgrin

Fuckwit is now disablist? FFS!

And YANBU! That's truly funny!

Oooh I would have hugged myself! Brilliant. Never let him forget it.

valiumredhead Sun 02-Oct-11 14:10:15

Fuckwit means someone without a clue - totally acceptable in this situation!

Fuckwit is NOT disablist, FFS!! hmm

OP, YANBU - that is bloody funny. (Although your thread title is bloody unreasonable.)

ChippingIn Sun 02-Oct-11 14:14:40

I would still be laughing grin

Fuckwit is not disablist FGS.

Sorry sorry - not your thread title - getting confused with another one I read that just said "AIBU?" which clearly they were for using that thread title. Not you. blush

Hilarious and definitely NOT unreasonable! grin

Flamingredhead Sun 02-Oct-11 14:22:29

I must admit I would have laughed at it to

worraliberty Sun 02-Oct-11 14:22:31

That is quite funny actually!

Though at almost 20yrs old my son still doesn't swear in front of me and I very rarely swear in front of my kids.

I also never (and still don't) swear in front of my parents.

I'm a bit old fashioned like that blush

Very funny grin

As for the po-faced "I would never let my children swear" contingent - well, I'm afraid it's time you woke up. Make that 'woke the fuck up'! The word no longer has the shock factor that it had decades ago. That may be sad, but it is indubitably true. Given that - you'd might as well roll over and accept it.

Bearskinwoolies Sun 02-Oct-11 14:26:22

Just read the OP to my dh (between snorts of laughter) and we are both in agreement


BatsUpMeNightie Sun 02-Oct-11 14:26:23

Worra grin - I was 40 before I let slip a 'fuck' in front of my Dad. He let slip one right back!!
