I was sat on my sofa sitting unknowingly on my mum's cardi. Rather than asking for it, she just pulls it free.

AIBU to find this very irritating?

Id just pull it free too.

"Something I am sitting on."

NOT "Something I am SAT on."

{frowny face}

However...YABU. People pull stuff free because they're justly annoyed that your arse is on their cardigan/newspaper/false teeth/used handkerchief.

Does it really matter? I can't say this is something I would give a second thought to.

I would find it very irritating if someone sat on and creased my cardigan, tbh. Surely you should move the object first hmm

I know what you mean, it changes things...

Yanbu. My mum did something similar when I was gripping onto the back of a chair that her cardie was draped over during a contraction when in labour with DS2. She also tutted, which sent me right over the edge!

This reminds me of a memory I thought I had forgotten.
Age 14 sulkily doing Sunday lunch washing up, my mother launching cutlery into sink so I got splashed. Ooh the trembling silent fury of my indignation coming back to me.
Sympathies op!!!

Yeah it's a bit rude. She could have easily said, "Excuse me darling," while she pulled it out. may have been a bit U in just plonking yourself down on it.

How could you sit on a cardi unknowingly?

Salmotrutta Thu 04-Apr-13 19:26:06

Annoying, yes.

But not as annoying as people who throw things (like magazines, letters etc.) at you instead of getting up and handing them to you.

I'm looking at you MIL

YABU- you should be looking before you sit down. I sat on a lego digger once, I shan't make that mistake again.

Am boggling at this. How could she just pull it free with a whole person's weight on it?Wouldn't it get torn or stretched out of shape? I certainly couldnt pull anything out from anyone older than about 6.

Anna...people give a wordless tug don't they...and then the sitter, lifts a cheek.

moonmanic Thu 04-Apr-13 21:29:22

There was no wordless tug. No chance to lift a cheek. She just came from nowhere and pulled really hard on it, like someone pulling the table cloth off a set table really quickly leaving all the plates and cups in place. Perhaps she thought if she did it really quickly I would'nt notice. But I did angry

at least it wasn't a small dog.

BrianButterfield Thu 04-Apr-13 21:34:38

No wordless tug? She's an animal.

If she reads the Daily Mail, sit on it and refuse to budge. The ink doesn't come off on your clothes but the filth comes off on your mind, so keep it squished down

This wouldn't annoy me too much.

But if the kids are playing with a ball and it hits me on the head when I am turned away.... Well, red mist doesn't do it justice.

I have no idea why this makes me feel momentarily murderous, but it does.

I have no sympathy for you OP, you shouldn't have sat down on top of the cardigan.

Your arse will recover - the cardigan may not.

PeppaFuckingPig Thu 04-Apr-13 21:46:10

Nothing to add except lolz @ Sunflowers.

Did you not just mutter/grunt/put the evil eye on her at the time like any normal person would do?
