FiftyShades you have just inspired me to watch Jim Diamond on youtube, I had forgotten what a great song that was!

Catsize Sun 02-Nov-14 16:40:30

Or, judging from many threads, I comes after DH...

Basgetti, also check out his classic hit Hi Ho Silver. It'll move into your ear and remain there for a very long time.

Oops posted too soon!

Posted recently about df's (friend) ex bu about child support money.

On the back of this, last night her and her new bf were messaging him the whole evening saying some really offensive, nasty stuff about him (and about me incidentally but I'm not bothered about that).

Most of it revolved around his looks for some unknown reason. He has ginger hair so you can imagine some of the insults hurled in his direction.

I can only assume that they are unhappy about the outcome of the child support conversation so are now taking the opportunity to be as spiteful and horrible as possible.

Wibu to stick up for him? Not to engage in a slanging match but just say something along the lines of 'I think it's really childish that you've resorted to taking the piss out of df's looks because you're annoyed with him. The grown up thing to do would be to talk to him about why you're unhappy and try to resolve it rather than making personal insults'.

I know it's none of my business (well, it kind of is since they were also slagging me off) but I just want them to know that I have his back so to speak. I think sometimes bullies pick on certain people because they think no one will call them out on their behaviour and I just want to show them that this is not the case.

Wibu? What would be the best response or should I just leave it?

Me

Leave it. Or you could try just texting "I".

Nomama Sun 02-Nov-14 16:48:44

Yes, you need to leap in and tell your friend, face to face, no texting, to save all the nasty texts, just in case he needs them at some future date.

Then you need to leap again and tell him, face to face, no texting, that you are there to support him, but he really needs to stop reading, let alone sharing these texts with you.

I am guessing you know all of this but, just in case in needs repeating...

THEN you can butt out and leave the 2 childish horrors to get on with it and your df to his Sunday night.

just leave it.

By responding, you lower yourself to their level and somehow in their mind it will become you all having a row. They will use any response by you or him as reason in their mind to carry on hurling insults.

By not responding, they can carry on having a fight all by themselves, showing themselves up for the arses they are. Let them giggle about how clever they are and just be happy that you are more grown up than that.

Get him to save the texts, in case they come in handy in the future, if it gets to the point where he wishes to involve the police.

I would imagine that they WANT a rise. They WANT replies. They are poking and poking and you would give them great satisfaction by replying anything. Imagine how much it will piss them off that he and you don't care enough to reply.

You support your friend by supporting your friend. You don't challenge the witless to do this. It won't help except to make you feel better very fleetingly.

GoodboyBindleFeatherstone Sun 02-Nov-14 16:58:55

Say nothing to them, but encourage your friend to build up a case for harassment.

extremepie Sun 02-Nov-14 17:00:49

Arrrg is just difficult because I am so angry at the both of them!

He is a good person and doesn't deserve that. I saw the look on his face when he read those texts and he was really hurt although to tried to pretend he doesn't care.

I'm pretty sure he's put up with similar pisstakes and insults his whole life sad

Just don't want them to feel like they've 'gotten away with it' but also don't want to lower myself to their level hence my desire to take the high road with my comments and not descend into throwing shit back at them even though I kind of want to :/

extremepie Sun 02-Nov-14 17:01:51

Good boy, at what point can you start involving the police just out of curiosity? I wouldn't have a clue how to go about it if it came to that :/
