AIBU to think my neighbour is unreasonable?!

Lighthearted thread.... But honestly now!

I get on very well with my neighbour... But....

She invited me round for coffee and cake today, but all she gave me was half a cappacino... And no cake!!

I feel like I've been so let down....

I NEEEEEEED cake in my life

No birds here to feed... Her bloke may have eaten the burnt cake, but I'm sure she would have been on here complaining if he had.

I really don't know what to do Mumsnet Jury. I like her, but what with the cake incident and then letting my son try to drown himself in the cat bowl I just don't know if it's worth it anymore.

I'm guessing she's pregnant.. She did want me to look after her other child while she gives birth... I'm now tempted to tell her I'm busy baking a cake when she knocks on the door in labour!

Or is that too harsh?

are you sure she is pregnant?

perhaps she just ate all the cake?

There are 2 options

1. She burnt the cake and her husband ate it (selfish bastard)
2. She fed it to the birds - Do you have birds where you are?

I think you're all being V.V.U. I bet she had a lovely victoria sponge sitting waiting in the cake tin and, in a moment of pregnancy related amnesia. forgot all about it.

OP, instead of bitching, why don't you just get up on her roof with a fishing rod with a cake attached to the end of it and every hour, on the hour, just dangle it in front of her kitchen window for a minute before reeling it back up. She'll remember the cake eventually and be mortified that she forgot to bring it our; or to finish filling up your cappucino mug.

Next time you get invited, take a cake and pot of filter coffee and don't offer her any of it. You just sit at her table and eat and drink.

Evil evil bitch

What did the police say to her about that?

Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Wed 23-Jan-13 22:52:00

I really think I'm on the verge of ditching her...

She let my child fall in the cat bowl!

SoleSource Wed 23-Jan-13 22:47:20

Yeah but she created extra syrup on your pancake, didn't she, dirty.

wanderingcloud Wed 23-Jan-13 22:18:19

What?! No cake?!

She didn't even offer flapjack???

Will Anne Robinson want my cake less story?

-- I bought the bitch a Tesco finest fudge chocolate Yule log before Christmas.... I give cake... She don't return the cake--

Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Wed 23-Jan-13 18:51:26

She's got a tassimo too... I don't think it was working properly...

I'm swaying backwards and forwards crying... I may have to divert to Tesco on my way home to get my cake fix.

Stuff the cake but HALF A CAPPUCHINO shock

It's all flipping fluff and milk, no substance .
What's half of nothing ,eh?

I've got a Tassimmo . And cupcakes with the turd shaped buttery icing swirl. They are lush and I don't even like butter! wink

We are the authority. We are mumsnet.

Send many cake pics to her on facebook with no comment.

Neighbourhoodwatchbitch Wed 23-Jan-13 17:23:48

To be honest I don't think she would have made it!

I just feel so let down. I feel like I've been the victim of her pregnancy related cake eating.

Is there an authority I can complain to?

Wheresmycaffeinedrip Wed 23-Jan-13 17:08:18

Maybe she burnt it and the husband ate it grin

freedom2011 Wed 23-Jan-13 17:04:27

maybe she was hoping you'd bring the cake? and is at home thinking, I provided the venue, I provided the coffee, I'm up the duff, why couldn't my neighbour stop by the bakery. but yeah YANBU, I always warn people I'm big and happy eater before I go round when invited so they know to put on plenty of cheap carbs. Like "Cake? Yes, I am so looking forward to our catch up and coffee and CAKE. I love a slice or 3 of CAKE me"

SpicyPear Wed 23-Jan-13 17:00:46

Two hours?! The woman is a monster. Move house.

MooMooSkit Wed 23-Jan-13 17:00:12

I meant, YANBU! smile

MooMooSkit Wed 23-Jan-13 16:59:55

YABU, she sounds like a right bitch. I would get a post-it and just write the word cake to it and stick it to her door. grin

Pigsmummy Wed 23-Jan-13 16:58:34

That's emotional abuse OP!

DoodlesNoodles Wed 23-Jan-13 16:57:32

Brought not bought...blush

Although she did buy them too so I am not technically wrong. confused

DoodlesNoodles Wed 23-Jan-13 16:56:12

When I invite my nieghbour round for a coffee she brings the plated cake with her. She is my favourite nieghbour ever. Once she bought macaroons shock
