To be absolutely Effing FURIOUS?

With MN, and more specifically, with mn-ers, esp those who post to AIBU?

So, long story short (wouldn’t want to drip feed): I work term times only, so am off this week for half term (huzzah!). Have a list of jobs to do, but also need some R&R time as well.

Today I have a TOTALLY free day – DH working, DD has plans with friends. I have a million jobs – notes to type up, a book I have to read, house looks like a shithole, a work email I (at least) need to give headspace to, a personal email I need to (at least) give headspace to (but need to check back to make sure I’ve got facts/quotes right to make my argument more devastatingly brilliant. I’ve got jobs on my list, some going back about a month. DH has jobs on his list, same (mutually assured destruction – I can’t complain to him about the lack of doing or he’ll quote mine: He can’t complain to me or I’ll quote his). Was going to do ALL of the above today, plus mow lawn (ker-POW! To DH over my doing my jobs AND his… Game over!)
Have done sweet FA.

Why? Because I’ve been wasting all my time on MN.

Curse you all with your interesting lives, your quick wit and intelligence. Your brightness, your sparkiness. Your thoughts. Your bloody OPINIONS. Your fascinating minutiae. Incidentally, I’ve done NO childcare since I discovered you. I honestly don’t think I’ve cooked a meal. (hey, she’s 13, she’s fine… I’ve done my whack!)

I’m livid. AIBU?

Should I send a stonking email to MMNQ? Can you offer suggestions as to what I should say, should I NBU.

I am furious myself and on your behalf.
Having found MN is the bane of my life and if my DCs turn into juvenile delinquents it will be a direct consequence of me having sought Bfing advice some 5 years ago.

I think you should at the very least complain or possibly sue MNHQ.

gamerchick Wed 27-May-15 23:00:20

The only advice I can give is don't even look at MN until you've done your doings first grin

Then you're sorted.

PeppermintCrayon Wed 27-May-15 23:00:38

I have lost whole work days to AIBU...

TalcAndTurnips Wed 27-May-15 23:04:56

You are not being unreasonable.

My house is on fire but I must just finish reading that 20-page thread about the woman who caught her husband cheating with a koi carp. And then I must post what I had for breakfast in 1975 and the funniest thing the cat ever said.

there are plenty of us aibu junkies, you are among friends.

Gileswithachainsaw Wed 27-May-15 23:08:44

Yanbu. I feel MN is the only way I get a decent conversation these days. It makes me crave alot if things I don't have so on that note MN I hate you too

PattiODoors Wed 27-May-15 23:15:44

Arf at shitshitshit

Once many years ago we had an unexpected Sausage Flambé for supper, ooopsie

And of course there was the Christmas Of Many Thousands Of Burnt Turkeys <looks shifty>

Fantastic post Fatmomma. You continue to amuse/entertain/provoke my thoughts.

Yanbu grin

Fatmomma99 Wed 27-May-15 23:19:59

You are all so right! Stamp on those slipper, Talc, there's other threads that need your attention.

Agree I should sue, Pacific. I'm reporting this thread now so they can start to prepare their pathetic defense.

Gamer - how is that even possible? You are ridiculous. I suspect you are probably a man. Flaming you!

Peppermint, I've lost SO many. Thank god I dare not post, I just lurk and prepare what I'm going to say for when I get home (internet is monitored at work, the fuckers!)

Giles, I'm with you. I have NO friends in RL. I frequently hurt/abuse children and puppies, but on MN I have people who LIKE me. It's fantastic!

Also, I forgot to add in my original post: Empathy, kindness, intelligent consideration.

What fuckers!

Fluffcake Wed 27-May-15 23:21:55

I really need to go to bed but just one more look..... grin

SumThucker Wed 27-May-15 23:22:20

Leave now whilst your still sane, Fatmomma

Fatmomma99 Wed 27-May-15 23:22:55

Remind me never to let you cook for me Patio. Although there's a current thread about a fussy visiting child, and I'm sure you could bring much support!

Hello Sand waves Think you're amazing. You are (a massive) part of the problem, BTW. Please feel reproved!

RusticBlush Wed 27-May-15 23:23:02

Oh yeah - I have no sex these days - straight to bed and on MN hmm

MoonlightandMusic Wed 27-May-15 23:24:38

What Fluffcake said. grin

fancyanotherfez Wed 27-May-15 23:24:38

I gave up Mumsnet for Lent and got LOADS done! although I did end up addicted to the DM sidebar of shame

Fatmomma99 Wed 27-May-15 23:26:35

But how, Sum? That's my problem - it's just all so fucking good!

There's a post (something about being pissed of with MIL) which is better - guaranteed -than anything you've watched on TV EVER.

How do you walk away from that?

(tell me, I want to know)

Fatmomma99 Wed 27-May-15 23:27:33

What's sex? I've been married for 20 years. I think it's something I knew about once....

SumThucker Wed 27-May-15 23:27:40

I have no answers, none.sad

TalcAndTurnips Wed 27-May-15 23:28:37

And the joys of the iPad that means that one can continue to MN whilst in the khazi seeing Mr and Mrs Brown off to the coast.

In the Middle Ages I would have had to abandon the PC to answer the call of nature. I would like see a thread about Extreme MNing, like the young chappie here with his extreme ironing.

fancyanotherfez Wed 27-May-15 23:28:38

There are things you can put on your computer that block sites. Its what I did for my Lenten penance!

velouria Wed 27-May-15 23:35:04

I think YANBU, mn actually directly and indirectly lead to the break up of my long term relationship blush. For the best, but still, I had a brief affair with World of Warcraft, also due to mn, but am firmly back being voyeuristic over others lives, le sigh.

Fatmomma99 Wed 27-May-15 23:42:10

Luckily, Fancyanother, I am not a Christian.

Looking forward to your viral of you weeing whilst checking out mumsnet, Talkc.

I'm sorry (but unsurprised) by your break up, Velouria, because every fucker on here tells you to ltb! Another nail in their goddam coffin!

YsabellStoHelit Wed 27-May-15 23:43:32


velouria Wed 27-May-15 23:44:58

Haha, actually the whole sorry tale would make a good mn thread grin...................
