I sent a friend a pic of DS2 with the following text

"Look at my <insert name>. Isn't he handsome?"

The reply

"He needs to clean his shoes"

and I'm more than a bit angry I'm all ranty and how fucking dare you diss my darling child

Maybe it is just her sense of humour. I have a friend who would probably reply with something similar.

Don't let it bother know your DS is gorgeous, you don't need her telling you!

Yeah it's a bit rude, but you were also fishing for compliments, which isn't great either.

I'm sure your DS2 is lovely though! <ducks for cover> grin

Does he need to clean his shoes?

FreddieMisaGREATshag Fri 10-May-13 13:25:54

We were exchanging recent photos and this person had sent me a few others with "isn't this cute" and "isn't this nice" so it was kind of in the flow of the conversation.

But yes, I've now had a laugh and a word with myself and AIBU. grin

Probably struggling for a reply, came up with a less than flattering one!

Maybe you should ask yourself why you think it's ok to put pictures of your kid up with dirty shoes on

<hoiks bosom>

Disclaimer: joke grin

Perhaps she thought you were fishing for compliments? wink

His shoes were not dirty. They weren't shiny but they weren't dirty <defends poor innocent child of 21andabitnearly22>

Haha i thought you meant a little child!!in that case id say thats mean but im sure she was joking about it in this case!

SPsCliffingAllOverMN Fri 10-May-13 13:59:33


I thought it was quite funny and something I'd say

mrsjay Fri 10-May-13 14:00:18

OP did you go how dare she grin my poor baby I knew he wasn't a small child,

FreddieMisaGREATshag Fri 10-May-13 14:27:02

To my shame I replied

"Did you mean that to sound so rude"

Reply and say: Dirt is Good.

FreddieMisaGREATshag Fri 10-May-13 14:41:37

The person has replied

"Girls notice that sort of thing. He looks good but if he wants to look great he'll clean his shoes."

I have replied with

"not this girl. I notice charm and wit and sparkling repartee before I notice shoes. And it doesn't look to me like he's struggling on the girl front"

(the pic is him surrounded by females)

SPsCliffingAllOverMN Fri 10-May-13 14:43:33

Has a point with the shoes though. A mans shoes are very important grin

FreddieMisaGREATshag Fri 10-May-13 14:45:04


OK the repliee (which isn't a word but you know what I mean) is a man. Not a woman.

If you think that might make a difference.

But still. How fucking dare he diss my baby

The cunt. grin

Fenton Fri 10-May-13 14:47:11

I actually 'lol'ed at his response. soz.

and he's right, clean shoes are very important you slattern

Fenton Fri 10-May-13 14:49:44

And you now have to show us the pic you sent him.. wink

FreddieMisaGREATshag Fri 10-May-13 14:51:49

grin not a chance.

You might say he has dirty shoes.

AKissIsNotAContract Fri 10-May-13 14:54:43

He's probably just jealous and wishes he was 21 and surrounded by girls again.

FreddieMisaGREATshag Fri 10-May-13 14:55:04

He never was grin I remember him when he was 21

Restorer Fri 10-May-13 14:57:16

Its was a joke, and yes as others have said, nothing less than you should expect when fishing for compliments

I'm not sure about girls, but men definitely notice shoes. I know of at least 2 job candidates who have been crossed off the list (by a male interviewer) because they presented at interview with less than shiny shoes. So your friend is offering valuable life advice. smile

FreddieMisaGREATshag Fri 10-May-13 15:02:16

Naw, he's just jealous the cunt and old and bitter and lonely. My DS is perfect and how very dare he suggest that he's not


Point taken folks. Thanks for not giving me a kicking.
