I've been looking for it for ages.

It's SGM's "I'm a Canadian Thread".

I know this is the wrong place, but I want to be able to find it again, so sorry Trills.

id better devote a bit of time to it later!

Sorry vicar.

Whenever anyone talks about op's not accepting that they might be unreasonable I want to link to this thread.

And I haven't been able to find it for years, so I'm saving it where I can find it again.

I do love that it has 666 posts. I feel that must be deeply meaningful.

Step 1 - CTRL + F the word Canadian

Step 2 - Read downwards

Step 3 - Enjoy.

Brilliant grin

I'm out at the moment but I'm very interested to see how it moves from "leaving 2 yo downstairs" to IM CANADIAN got to love mn.

I am really enjoying that thread...thanks OP smile!

I have to say, 'you are talking hearsay and I am quoting the freaking UN' comes fairly close to I AM CANADIAN for me.

Good times.

To sum it up:

1. Her dp is too lazy to put up stair gates
2. He has however got a job in Canada as Canadian firms want to emply hardworking Brits rather than lazy Canadians
3. It turns out they don't have Canadian visas, despite paying large amounts of money to law firm
4. She knows more than SGM about Canada
5. Everyone on the thread is a bitch.
6. She can't type.

Alisvolatpropiis Mon 12-Nov-12 19:18:18

That was fantastic!

Did she ever come back?

stoatie Mon 12-Nov-12 19:27:37

That was the best read I have had in ages - wonder if she ever got to Canada (as if they would reject such a yummymummy!)

TheCunnyFuntWearingAPoppy Mon 12-Nov-12 19:30:53

Assuming there are 25 posts to a page, with 27 pages. Where would it get funny?

Hassled Mon 12-Nov-12 19:37:19

Many, many thanks for finding this, Mary - I'd had a half-hearted attempt to find it, but had completely forgotten that it started off being about stairgates grin.

I've just wasted over an hour of my life reading that thread! I hate reading old threads that have so many deletions though. What on earth was Starlight on about?!

Has anyone done a search for her to see if she's still around?

ILiveInAPineapple Mon 12-Nov-12 20:35:59

This cheered me up after a really shitty day!

WillieWaggledagger Mon 12-Nov-12 20:38:30

<happy sigh>

That was one of my favourite ever threads

WillieWaggledagger Mon 12-Nov-12 20:39:44

Good god though was it really two years ago?!

SageYourOracle Mon 12-Nov-12 20:56:31

Ugggh!! I was supposed to be Getting Stuff Done tonight and, instead, I've been hooked on Stair-Gate (as in Watergate. . . do you see what I did there?)

Norty Maryz thanks a million, the thread is hugely entertaining for posting! grin

YellowTulips Mon 12-Nov-12 21:00:48

Read through not really sure what to expect.

Nearly gave up after getting more and more fed up with the OP. was worth it grin.

Killer punchline!

WineGless Mon 12-Nov-12 21:01:01

mrscumberbatch Mon 12-Nov-12 21:06:32

I think Maryz should be employed by MN to summarise all lengthy threads.
