To expect some help from the people who sold me the house

I'm a single chap who recently bought his first house. I have asked the people who sold the house to me for some help with things like how to set the heating. At first they were very helpful, but now they seem to be a little 'off' with me. I need to ring them again to ask where the key for the oil tank is, but i'm a little worried about it. AIBU?

Perhaps you've asked them too much?

Bwahahahaha grin

How did you find mumsnet incidentally? Do you work in childcare?

SHRIIIEEEKPoolingBearBlood Wed 19-Oct-11 21:33:45

awww ask your mum to ring, it's a bit much to have to do it yourself

Oh Trodden, have you been using them as an alternative to google?

Sure that you haven't been getting other family members to ask questions too?

Getting your mum to turn up at their new house asking for them to come and see to stuff there and then is probably not a good idea!

No - when you buy a house you are effetively buying the services of ALL previous owner for eternity - do they not come round and mow the lawn, clean the carpets etc - contact injury lawyers for you or some such - they sound awful

and have one of these

I would vote for your mum to ring also grin

and while she's at it get her to tuck you in and read you a bedtime story. When she's got the house all toasty warm and nice and clean for you, obviously

Was there ever an update on the original thread?

SHRIIIEEEKPoolingBearBlood Wed 19-Oct-11 21:36:11

Boasting (not sure who you are btw...) hope people don't think you're me shock

thanks for that, a crap day has ended on a high

StetsonsAreCool Wed 19-Oct-11 21:38:25


What's happened to the original OP? Have you chained her to the boiler until she accepts that she's been put on this earth to help you until the end of time?

OtterBjitch Wed 19-Oct-11 21:38:42

Try not to take it to heart, everyone can have an 'off' day at times, it's probably not about you.

Give them a chance to relax of an evening - don't ring too early. I suggest after 10pm.

I was wondering if he'd been back in touch with the original OP. Too funny.

Trodden Wed 19-Oct-11 21:40:48

Sorry - I just loved the original

thought that it was really funny, so had to. I'm a proud dad to a 5 month old, and was looking on MN for ways to help him get over his first cold.

Kayano Wed 19-Oct-11 21:42:29

Trodden in my new favourite poster grin

OtterBjitch Wed 19-Oct-11 21:43:39

Very funny. grin

And I hope your DC gets over their cold soon. Don't listen to anyone who tells you to suck the snot out
