It's up there will 'hollibobs' for me.

I think the sentence 'off on hollibobs with the hubster' (which I've just seen on FB) might tip me over the edge.

No one actually says that, surely to God...?

Dontmakemecometovegas Sun 29-Jun-14 19:52:11

You wouldn't think so would you.

I've had to hide it.

Mumsnet using DH for darling husband I find really fucking annoying but do it to fit in. I've never used the term 'darling husband' in real life and never will.

Hubster!? Haven't heard that one before but hubby makes me cringe.

Someone I know calls their husband 'hubster' she also regularly goes our for 'fizz'.

This is among the least irritating things she posts on fb. My DH feels desperately sorry for her DH.

I don't object to any word implying "husband" as long as it has "ex" in front of it.

Bubba is far more annoying. He's my BABY fgs. Not a bubba !

Watercolourfootballs Sun 29-Jun-14 20:01:15

Yumsk? Very very wrong.

Watercolourfootballs Sun 29-Jun-14 20:04:53

Need We have not one but 2 relatives who insist on peppering their FB posts with comments about their 'bubs' or even lord help me 'bubz'. Their friends usually reply with some found of 'Hun-ing'.

I have suspicions that these ladies are not MNers are may even have a sparkly ticker tape somewhere the shame
