Says Ds friend to me just now. Apparently, his family 'don't do' Pizza Hut.

Wibu not to take the ungrateful git anywhere for lunch now?

First time he's been to our house. So far, I've been told how small it is, asked how much dh earns, asked if this is a council house and asked why we didn't wait to have baby dd until we had a bigger house.

Ds is mortified.

'In our house we are grateful for what we have and don't compare with other people. We quite like Pizza Hut and I'm sure you'll be happy with wherever we go. Unless you'd prefer I dropped you home?'

Is the child old enough to be told just how rude they are (i.e. aged over 7ish)?

If so, I'd tell them straight.

Fragglewump Tue 26-Aug-14 11:33:04

Yuk. How old is he? Maybe tell him it's terribly uncouth to discuss money matters. Are you friends with his parents?

Send the little bugger home! shock

Take him to Pizza Hut! (It's nicer blush )

Do children like this really exist? How old is he?

Brilliant response Jana.
What a horrid child

SaucyJack Tue 26-Aug-14 11:33:43

It's true tho..... Pizza Hut is bogging.

Edieandkoala Tue 26-Aug-14 11:35:08

He's almost 12. I told him his questions were none of his business and rude. He shrugged at me.

Ds keeps coming in and saying "I'm so sorry mum, I've told him he's out of order". Ds wants him to go home. He was supposed to be here until 5, but I am thinking of feigning an urgent dry appointment and dropping him home early.

He makes a good point IMHO

saintlyjimjams Tue 26-Aug-14 11:35:20

How old?
Bloody hell.

WorraLiberty Tue 26-Aug-14 11:35:28

You've left out a very important bit of info

His age!

TalcumPowder Tue 26-Aug-14 11:35:34

I prefer Pizza Express, but he's being monumentally rude and I hope you've made it very clear those kinds of comments are not acceptable.

saintlyjimjams Tue 26-Aug-14 11:35:45

12??? Send him home.

TalcumPowder Tue 26-Aug-14 11:35:57

But yes, is he four or fourteen?

PPaka Tue 26-Aug-14 11:36:17

He's obviously just repeating what he's heard
He's right too

Pastperfect Tue 26-Aug-14 11:36:24


But fair point

StillStayingClassySanDiego Tue 26-Aug-14 11:36:27

How old is this boy who says 'low quality' shock

WorraLiberty Tue 26-Aug-14 11:36:27

12? I would have pulled him up at the first sign of rudeness shock

Edieandkoala Tue 26-Aug-14 11:36:33

There are a lot of kids like that round here. The parents are far worse!

StillStayingClassySanDiego Tue 26-Aug-14 11:36:41


BitchPeas Tue 26-Aug-14 11:36:46

Drop him home. Say sorry Pizza Hut wasn't good enough for your DS, byeeee.

Then go and have lunch.

What a precocious little brat!

thelmachicken Tue 26-Aug-14 11:36:46

His parents are going to be mortified when they hear that!

TalcumPowder Tue 26-Aug-14 11:37:10

Cross posted with you. If your poor son is also having a miserable time, I would take the rude friend home early, and tell his patents why.

PPaka Tue 26-Aug-14 11:37:10

Oh, I just read the bit about Pizza Hut
The rest is very rude
