I blame Paggy. Once she tilted her head it opened the floodgates for all manner of niceness.

Terrible state of affairs.

Oh FFS. I had a thread a while ago in which 100s ofumsnetters not only held my hand but gave me a virtual hug. It got me through one of the worst times of my life. If you don't like it, don't read the threads.

EmmanuelWoganberry Mon 18-Aug-14 16:32:19

Well, I’m impressed if people can change their pants with only one free hand.

Who are you to say what is a big deal to someone and what isnt?

Tikimon Mon 18-Aug-14 16:36:29

Right, you guys need to do this the British way. Firm handshakes only.

AbbieHoffmansAfro Mon 18-Aug-14 16:42:50

I find it a helpful indicator of threads to avoid, so on that basis YABU.

manofsponge Mon 18-Aug-14 16:44:13

Good tip abbie

HotPinkWeaselWearingLederhosen Mon 18-Aug-14 16:44:51


Aaaah, but who are you to say "who are you to say what is a big deal to someone and what isnt"?

And who am I to say to you, you are you to say "who are you to say what is a big deal to someone and what isnt?"

Actually I know that one. I'm weasel, I'm pink, and I'm wearing leather shorts.
