BellaBearisWideAwake Sat 10-Jan-15 17:16:27

Do you mean like Major and Minor. Or Teeny and Little. Or Him Indoors?

BellaBearisWideAwake Sat 10-Jan-15 17:17:02

I remember a blog where the kids were referred to as Fric and Frac but I thought that was quite funny

MilkThistle187 Sat 10-Jan-15 17:17:26

Op, blogs always seem to infuriate you, what about giving them up? It would do your blood pressure the world of good

ZammoMcGuire Sat 10-Jan-15 17:17:52

ZammoMcGuire Sat 10-Jan-15 17:18:19

YANBU.

I happened upon the blog of a school Dad while innocently googling something school related. He uses incredibly cringey names for his DW and DCs. Now when I see him my sphincter twitches.

'Mr' anything. You're not a Judge or a Cold Caller, give him his proper name ffs.

msgrinch Sat 10-Jan-15 17:24:57

rant away. hope you're ok though.

ZammoMcGuire Sat 10-Jan-15 17:25:04

yes or make one up like MIKE, or DAVE

BobbyBanana Sat 10-Jan-15 17:26:08

YANBU

Examples to cringe over please!

Greywackejones Sat 10-Jan-15 17:29:25

There's one in red mag. Dh is alpha male.

Alpha male. Just cringe tastic

And the stories are all "I'm a simpering girl, can't possibly do it and dh is a bit thick"

Every week. Just how the fuck is the salary justified?!?

ZammoMcGuire Sat 10-Jan-15 17:30:01

how the hell do magazines keep going?!

ItsAllKickingOffPru Sat 10-Jan-15 17:30:15

Attic24 and her Little People. <shudder>

HelloItsStillMeFell Sat 10-Jan-15 17:31:44

YABNU. In fact, I am coming round to the opinion that 98.4% of all blogs are utter shite. Just self absorbed, boring, poorly written shite that no-one cares about.

The rest are quite good.

Turquoisetamborine Sat 10-Jan-15 17:35:34

Greywack I can't stand Rosie Green either. I hate the way Alpha Male calls her Green!

ZammoMcGuire Sat 10-Jan-15 17:35:58

they all need a good edit. Write less say more

IamTitanium Sat 10-Jan-15 18:07:07

HATE, that's a teeny tiny bit extreme grin

Jessica78 Sat 10-Jan-15 18:12:22

YANBU - my DSiL does this... 'The Mr' - it makes me shudder. Had to stop reading...

HatefullyHeather Sat 10-Jan-15 18:13:35

Ha, Pru. That blog is my pet hate too. So sugary and flowery, makes my teeth hurt. But lots of people absolutely adore her...

Tobyjugg Sat 10-Jan-15 18:18:51

One blogger calls DW "the old bat". Do wonder about his marriage.

Millli Sat 10-Jan-15 18:19:45

OP maybe you should start your own blog.
