To think this parent is an arse

Took my dd (7) across the street to another child's party this afternoon. My dd normally loves going to play with this girl but today she didn't want to go. Anyway I persuade her and we go over but my dd is withdrawn and crying. I feel her head, she warm, she looks pale. I stay half an hour trying to get her involved but she is crying and the other children are now commenting and distracted by my dd crying.
So I say to the dad I'm going to have to take her back home I don't think she is well. So he then goes and gets a thermometer, takes her temperature ( without asking me) and its 36.8. He then says 'she's fine, you are just giving in to pressure' so I say 'we'll there you go but I'm still taking her home' as I leave he is tutting at me and rolling his eyes.
About two hours later my dd starts throwing up.
As I think about this man. I find myself getting more pissed off. AIBU?

Why the fuck would you want a crying, potentially ill child at your kids party anyway? I'd have been bundling you out the door. No offence.

YANBU. Your child, your call. Your DD made the effort to turn up to the party but felt too unwell to join in, of course you were right to take her home in the circumstances. An arse indeed angry.

I would text him and say yes, she may not of had a temp but has thrown up all evening!

How very rude!!

Monty27 Sun 11-Nov-12 01:11:46

How is she? I think you were right. don't understand the dad to be honest, and agree with above, why would you want a poorly child at your your dc's party?

You made the right decision for your child. Hope dd's ok.

Comfort yourself with the thought that your DD has probably given the stomach bug to him and by morning he'll have an arse like the Japanese flag.

This is the kind of thing my BIL would do but without the rolling of eyes and tutting.

Some people just think they know everything and it is so FUCKING ANNOYING!

I would casually mention it to him later, the silly arse.

Hope your DD feels better soon.

She is still being sick in between sleeps. Hence I'm still awake.
(Arse like a Japanese flag he he)

WandaDoff Sun 11-Nov-12 01:57:44

He is a twat for instance.

Comfort yourself with the fact that you realise when your DD is out of sorts & react appropriately.

Also, comfort yourself with the fact that he is most likely shitting through the eye of a needle just now grin

Sarahplane Sun 11-Nov-12 01:59:11

Yep he's definitely an arse. Hope your dd feels better soon.

BooyhooRemembering Sun 11-Nov-12 02:13:21

erm, did you just stand and watch him put a thermometer in her mouth? why?

goralka Sun 11-Nov-12 02:39:44

yes he sounds like a total arse but there's a lot of them about......

Iheartpasties Sun 11-Nov-12 02:53:06

Why do some people think they know it all? he osunds like a wanker, be thankful you are not married to him.

ilovetermtime Sun 11-Nov-12 07:36:06

I would call him and tell him that your daughter has been sick and tell him that he now needs to contact all the parents of kids who were at the party and warn them. That''ll teach him smile

Fakebook Sun 11-Nov-12 07:42:15

I was going to suggest what ilovetermtime said.

Yes, he is an arse.

EagleRiderDirk Sun 11-Nov-12 07:48:50

Hehehe ilovetermtime - brill idea.

rogersmellyonthetelly Sun 11-Nov-12 10:38:16

Sounds like a knob. Do ring him and tell him the good news that your dd has come down with a nasty stomach bug and please could he contact all other parents to warn them. Also mention it's a good job you took her home when you did as you wouldnt have fancied cleaning the vomit up from his carpet.

CrapBag Sun 11-Nov-12 12:26:36

I would have to get in contact to say that she has a bug as she is being sick and you really hope that no one else has caught it. Really make a point of it.

slartybartfast Sun 11-Nov-12 12:31:25

WHAT A Prick.
dfinately tell him

Ahardyfool Sun 11-Nov-12 12:34:04

Contact him now and say she'd like to come over now that she's puked up the worst of it.

Shesparkles Sun 11-Nov-12 12:36:27

You know you did the right thing for your dd, and anyone else there is probably grateful to you while thinking he's a twat!

It's just a shame your dd has thrown up......and it wasn't on him wink
