Ok is it just me that finds it completely irritating to see to see posters to include [sigh] in their posts.

It reminds me of a petulant child

EverlongLovesHerChristmasRobin Mon 26-Nov-12 19:56:18

I don't sigh when I'm angry or annoyed I just swear I sigh when I've given up and cba any more.

Which is very rare. wink think dog with bone

Gentleness - sometimes it sounds like it goes along with the [eyeroll]

Gentleness Mon 26-Nov-12 18:26:17

Hmm - I thought [sigh] meant more weary and resigned than anything else. As in: Heartburn kicking in again and toddler spilled drink over sofa. Sigh.

StandYourGround - No! Far too Anne Robinson

StandYourGround Mon 26-Nov-12 17:45:46

ffs always sounds very end of tethery and angry.

Haven't noticed many <sighs>

I have yet to use a <head tilt>

I'm saving it for a speshul moment... <stabby>

Unashamed suckup

<licks pag's face> [sigh]

BumpingFuglies - your verging on the [nahnahnahnahnah]

JamieandtheMagicTorch - [suckup] grin

Pagwatch Mon 26-Nov-12 17:09:48

It's alright Jamie. I know I would never sigh or FFS at you grin

I am usually very polite. We just all have our limits <twitches>

Youcanringmybell Mon 26-Nov-12 17:03:38

I love the detail that so many posters go to here to let you know the tone of their post. I use extra detail so people know if I am joking or not.

Therefore my ruling is that YOU ARE BEING UNREASONABLE

ScrambledSmegs Mon 26-Nov-12 16:16:15

I'm doing a lot of <sighs> at the moment. I'm 5 days overdue, can't walk very well and have a 2.8yo to cope with. Just be glad I'm limiting myself to <sigh>

You wanna make something of that?


JamieandtheMagicTorch Mon 26-Nov-12 16:08:23


that was not directed at you, BTW. The people you say it to always deserve it

JamieandtheMagicTorch Mon 26-Nov-12 16:05:45

I say FFS a lot in RL, but somehow I wouldn't say it on here, and I hate being the recipient of it on here

Sigh is more passive-aggressive, which I find kind of amusing if directed at me. Years of experience of it from my mum I suppose

GinAndSlimlinePlease Mon 26-Nov-12 14:06:06

I quite like a good sigh, says far more than a bunch of words sometime

<sighs> at myself

<scuttles off> to be childish in RL.

But seriously, do we have to be so grown up we can't sigh occasionally?

BumpingFuglies Mon 26-Nov-12 13:58:23

<retrieves raspberry and blows>
Definitely need a [fucksake] emoticon grin

Pagwatch Mon 26-Nov-12 13:26:33

Then it works takataka.
I would use it more if I thought it would make people fuck off

psychomum5 Mon 26-Nov-12 13:24:47

really, this is still going on.


how tedious and boring.


RandallPinkFloyd Mon 26-Nov-12 13:20:55

Actual lolz at walking menopausal asbo grin

Yep [sigh] is fecking irritating but sometimes that's intention!

Definitely all depends on context.

takataka Mon 26-Nov-12 13:11:28

pag Im rude...maybe I mean its too superior/underhand...if you have a point then make it. Dont sigh at me. In fact [sigh] is pretty much end of discussion as far as i am blatantly says the person is not listening/ taking your POV seriously

Mrsjay Mon 26-Nov-12 13:11:16

I * <sigh> <shrug> and <rolleyes> every other post bet you hate me grin

EverlongLovesHerChristmasRobin Mon 26-Nov-12 13:09:57

takataka you are a saint. < puts hand in prayer symbol > wink

Pagwatch Mon 26-Nov-12 13:09:18

I sigh in RL too. I say 'oh for fucks sake' occasionally. I am like a walking menopausal asbo.

Pagwatch Mon 26-Nov-12 13:08:22

Are we supposed to never be rude on here then?

No one told me [sigh]

takataka Mon 26-Nov-12 13:06:43

grin everlong I get MN angry, not so angry makes me go GRRRR..then I forget about it...

Hmmm....I dont think I express exasperation. I think it is rude to do so. It is expressing that the reason the person you are talking to doesnt agree with you, is because they dont understand you....

ExitPursuedByABear Mon 26-Nov-12 13:06:20

I make an art form out of sighing. LOUDLY

EverlongLovesHerChristmasRobin Mon 26-Nov-12 13:02:49

Really takata? You'd get so angry over a <sigh>?

How do you express yourself when you are exasperated?
