every friday night i go to my mothers, sometime for a few bottles of wine or sometime for a few cup of tea. I live 5 minutes walk to my house.

however my brother's feel the need to walk me home. I don't need walking home. What do they think would happen grrrrrrr

I wouldn't be pissed off with them for that

I think that's rather sweet grin.

Awwwww… That's so sweet. I am v. jealous, would love some overprotective DBs.

Did they give boyfriends "stern talking to's"?

Have you ever seen the news?
Be grateful not cross. Really.

They sound lovely and you're taking offense at them being caring about you, YABU smile

Whether you think there's anything to worry about or not is irrelevant, just humour them and let them feel they're able to show how they feel about by doing this small thing.

Just let them do it, even on a 5 minute walk home something could happen at this time of night, safety in numbers. They obviously care for you.

After "a few bottles of wine" I think that yes, you would need walking home. Perhaps they can see something you cant....

Oh no wait....

Selfish pigs, how dare they hmm

If your brothers are still at junior school YANBU otherwise YABU grin

How many brothers escort you home at any one time? If it is more than one or two then they might also be BU.

You should divorce the bastards...

that's very sweet of them. Surely better than them not caring.

'my DH had the talk if he ever hurt me ect ect ect.. '

I've read that as there being someone who actively wants to hurt you, is that right?

My brothers are horrid, you are lucky to have them care about you.

Get a grip and revel in the knowledge of how loved you are.

I have two brothers.

One is a waste of space.
The other is a slightly taller, more mouthy, waste of space.
I have nothing to do with either.

Be thankful, and give your brothers each a random hug from me, I have a few spare. on the proviso that there are generally decent folk and don't eat kittens or anything.

McNewPants2013 Sat 12-Jan-13 01:03:40

I know they care, but to me it seems like i am unable to get myself home safe home.

as this is aibu i want people to tell aibu or not

WorraLiberty Sat 12-Jan-13 01:04:05

My 21yr old DS walks his male friends halfway home if they've been round to visit.

It's just politeness and caring.

AgentZigzag Sat 12-Jan-13 01:04:35

I have one brother OTT, and I bet he's twice as bad as both yours put together

<flegs on hand>

<holds it out to shake>

YABU - people are very vulnerable when walking alone late at night, the Police routinely advise against it.

They are stopping you looking like easy prey for any potential mugger, rapist or murderer.

And you're pissed off with them for doing it???? How many of the many victims of crime whilst walking home alone thought they would be ok? Most of them.

They were wrong.

feel guily now, they only do it because they care
