For this to make me cringe

So as usual, there's a lot of status updates on FB 'to' Dads in the normal, boring vein of 'thanks for bring the best dad in the world etc etc'. Which I read and think 'eurgh' at the best of times. (send a card! say it to his face!) But goodness to gracious I've just come across a right corker:

'Thank you to my darling Fiancé on Fathers Day for loving the spirits of our future children'

That made me laugh - the spirits of our future children!!! what a poncy thing to say.

Sparklingbrook Sun 16-Jun-13 10:35:23

That is vomit inducing!!

Sadly enough i think there is a woman i know of who would post some tripe like that hmm

That status might be a bit cringy, but the rest of your post unreasonable.

That is obviously a completely sarcastic piss-take of all the other soppy statuses. No one could possibly EVER post that seriously.

Could they?

Ugh, I find that quite creepy. I'm afraid the concept of 'child spirits' makes me think of dead children and suggests mawkish Victorian spiritualism.

The writer hasn't thought about the possiblity of infertility, has she.

iliketea Sun 16-Jun-13 10:41:12

Maybe that's her "i'm pregnant with twins" announcement and no-one's understood it because they're all too busy laughing?

Definitely one for the spreadsheet of what gets FB a bad name!

The writer hasn't thought about the possibility of infertility, has she.

I think you could end that sentence after the fourth word Lottie and it would still make perfect sense!

superbadspeller Sun 16-Jun-13 10:49:26

Sadly she posts a lot of this type of rubbish - and lots of 'inspirational' stuff. Another recent one, about planning her wedding':

'Amazing day creating wonderment and magic for our perfect union day'

I'm not even sure that makes sense...

Why do you have someone you don't like on your FB?
