I only like AIBU when someone is obviously being unreasonable. My favourites are the ones where someone wants the OP to be an unpaid childminder (school run etc) for the next seven years.

I like gardening and exercise - all quite sane and no viciousness there.

Live birth threads blush

Crazy relationship stories of cheats getting caught

Indignant AIBU - YES!! No I'm not! Threads.

Lovely threads where people who need it get support and you can actually see the OP gain some strength from it.

I like the threads where people come up with interesting experiences For instance, the one with 'coincidences' or funny stories relating to a particular aspect of life.

I love funny life stories, be it hilarious brass neck stories, unfortunate accidents or someone farting somewhere inappropriate grin

Theselittlelightsofmine Mon 03-Nov-14 14:43:47

Mine are the same as Cherrys's grin

Same as Cherry too. Love the funny ones.

Also like it when someone is a bit worried about something (Going on a date or starting a job, social anxiety, etc...) and they get lots of advice and then come back and say that everything went well.

Or the ones where someone has received a really cheeky/grabby request and they reply and we all wait for the update.

Parking, unpaid childcare/lifts and arrogant cat threads.

Any that contain an element of brass-neckedness are also hilarious.

The 'faffing' one that is about at the moment is another of my favourites.

Silk threads, closely followed by raw cotton. Polyester definitely brings up the rear.

I love a good in-law thread.
Makes me feel better about the lunatics (over grown children) that are my in-laws.

TonyThePony Mon 03-Nov-14 15:02:44

I love a 'I can never leave the house again...' or a 'TMI'

I'm a bit weird.

Riverland Mon 03-Nov-14 15:05:47

Property threads, comparing possible houses to buy.. Basically house porn.

noblegiraffe Mon 03-Nov-14 15:06:42

Ones where someone blithely exhibits completely outrageous behaviour, like the one where the neighbours were using their swimming pool or holiday home. I love reading threads with shock this expression.

WorraLiberty Mon 03-Nov-14 15:08:14

I like...

"I was walking down the road when an old lady fell over in front of me. Everyone else simply stepped over her and carried on walking. I stopped, rang an ambulance and administered first aid until the Paramedics arrived. I went with her in the ambulance and held her hand, before contacting her family to tell them which hospital she's in."

WIBU? Only my friend's cat raised an eyebrow, so now I'm second guessing myself and think I might have interfered.

hmm grin

The ones where a poster has only just realised something fairly obvious to most people and begs for equally embarrassing tales of lack of knowledge. And then we all confess our own lightbulb moments.

cherrybombxo Mon 03-Nov-14 15:26:55

Meglet like a couple of weeks ago when, driving past Ikea, I realised that the shop is blue and yellow because it's Swedish?

Yes, I'm serious. I swear I'm not as dense as I sound!

Charitybelle Mon 03-Nov-14 15:30:18

Brass neck threads.
And anything to do with crazy unreasonable in-laws!
Anything that makes me go shock

WorraLiberty Mon 03-Nov-14 15:34:26

I've just realised, it's the 3rd of November and we haven't had any begging threads yet! shock

A couple of years ago, they were so blatant it was embarrassing...always popping up a month or so before Christmas.

ThrowAChickenInTheAir Mon 03-Nov-14 15:36:12

I like spooky threads. And I wonder why nothing like it ever happens to me which is boring.

Eastwickwitch Mon 03-Nov-14 15:42:21

I love the Property threads, MN has decorated my house.
S&B are fantastic for finding great frocks.
The Education bods make me feel my DC are thick blush
Also adore a ridiculous wedding thread, especially if it involves a poem or dress code.

JeanneDeMontbaston Mon 03-Nov-14 15:43:04

The ones where we all get far too invested in picking over favourite TV/books/bits of history, and the long-running chatty threads. Especially if they also feature inappropriate crushes, and especially when people pop in to tell us we're all overthinking and then get sucked in to the discussion for another 6 pages.

I was like a pig in shit when we got to talk about the White Queen, and then it turned out it was a bit crap and the actors weren't as pretty as they could have been. sad

LadyLuck10 Mon 03-Nov-14 15:43:50

Worra that's classic grin

JeanneDeMontbaston Mon 03-Nov-14 15:44:22

Oh, and guilty pleasures are the ones where the OP is defending something that is wrong. Like, categorically, legally, factually wrong.

fuckyouIdontneedthisshit Mon 03-Nov-14 15:45:29

I lurk on many but like funny ones.

I would like a to see a thread a bit like my nick name. Were people can go and have Really good rant, let of steam. I felt like that last night (hence the name change) I couldn't tell the person in rl
1.they are a drama queen and would lap it up.
2. If I did say anything I was so angry I proberly wouldn't of been that rational.grin

noblegiraffe Mon 03-Nov-14 15:50:29

Baby name threads where the OP has suggested something like Bonzo for a boy and Lesbos for a girl. The outrage is usually hilarious but there's always someone who will defend it as 'your choice'.
