Or am I just bring hormonal and over-emotional.

DS (13m) is currently in hospital and gas been gif a couple of weeks now. There is a small parent kitchen in the ward, which parents are expected to clean up after themselves. Every single time I have been in there since admission, I gave washed up a sink of stuff. Ok, my choice, and it fills done time/needs going etc.
I was washing bits earlier whilst waiting for s bottle to warm. A Roman came in, listen one of my arms out if the dunk, dropped her 2 filthy (and not scraped) plates in, and walked off.

Tell me honestly, am I exhausted, emotional, and hormonal (also 32w pg) and massively over-reacting? Or is this just unbelievably fucking rude! If I was a more confident person, I would have chinned her shock

No that is so rude I don't know how you managed not to throw the plates at her.

A Roman came in, listen one of my arms out if the dunk,

This doesn't make sense at all?

I'm really sorry your baby's in hospital. It must be very stressful. I would have said something to that woman, though, so she didn't do it again

I assume you mean "a woman" and no, yanbu, she was rude.

She probably just assumed you were a paid cleaner, and some people seem to feel justified in being rude to anyone they perceive to be beneath them angry

Don't do it if it upsets you; leave the mess for someone else.

I hope your ds is ok soon flowers

A woman came in, lifted one of my arms out of the sink...

That is rude but I'd have been too busy boggling at a real life Roman being in the kitchen to say anything grin

MammaTJ Thu 11-Feb-16 21:32:43

Massively rude! I would have said 'There are no maids here, we are expected to clear up after ourselves'.

When in Rome...

Maryz Thu 11-Feb-16 21:32:56

woman, lifted, and sink, I presume CooPie. Pretty obvious (if bonkers) autocorrects I would have thought.

ZiggyFartdust Thu 11-Feb-16 21:34:14

Was she really from Rome wink ?

I spent several weeks in a childrens hospital with one of my DC last year, the parent kitchen was a joke. I went in one day the second week to find someone had robbed the kettle. Other days my food was taken from the fridge (and since I couldn't leave to buy any I relied on this stuff).
I lost 10 kilos during our stay and mainly lived on chocolate from a vending machine.

That's so rude OP.

I work on a children's ward, I'm fed up of washing up other people's plates and cups.

Arkhamasylum Thu 11-Feb-16 21:36:57

It's just as well you didn't chin her, although I don't blame you for wanting to. I would have, too.

I hope your son's better soon flowers

CooPie10 Thu 11-Feb-16 21:41:37

Thanks Imperial. I was trying to work out the autocorrects but couldn't.
Yanbu op, very rude of her. She probably thought you would wash up after her.

zzzzz Thu 11-Feb-16 21:50:03

Oh some people are so rude and you must be so tired.

brew and cake and I hope your little one gets better soon and you get some sleep. Being in hospital with a sick child is utterly exhausting without people behaving like that.

amarmai Thu 11-Feb-16 21:56:47

put a notice up saying -i am not the paid dishwasher. Wash your own dishes. It will make you feel a little better. So sorry to hear your baby is not well. I hope he will improve and you will take him home soon.

Tbh in the past several days I have become more convinced that chinning people is actually the way forward.

As DH says you can't educate shit.

Ziggy- some fucker lifted the flat screen TV off the wall in the parents room. Money donated by the parents of a child who sadly passed bought that TV to help make parents stay more comfortable sad

Cuppachaplz Thu 11-Feb-16 22:08:51

Yes, sorry I didn't spot the autocorrects blush
Am tired and ranty

Yes it was a woman who lifted my arm out of the sink
Well done to all who guessed correctly confused

Maryz there is no way she could have thought that I was a cleaner. I was in my pajamas hmm

NoelHeadbands Thu 11-Feb-16 22:10:56

Bloody Romans think they own the place, what have they ever done for us?

ZiggyFartdust Thu 11-Feb-16 22:11:24

I can believe it, Sharon. Depressing, isn't it?

bumbleymummy Thu 11-Feb-16 22:12:14

YANBU. She was very rude. Sorry to hear your DS is in hospital. Hope he's doing ok. thanks

Cuppachaplz Thu 11-Feb-16 22:12:31

Ziggy that all sounds familiar. I have lost 4kg so far (MW gave me a proper boasting blush), and lost a carton of my baby's milk (he has goats milk). Last time we were in, breast milk went missing-WTAF?

NoelHeadbands Thu 11-Feb-16 22:12:45

YANBU though, cheeky shit head

ZiggyFartdust Thu 11-Feb-16 22:17:18

It's different in each place. We've been in ones where you couldn't leave a teabag down or it would be gone, and others where local companies would bring in free pizzas for parents on the ward.
Does make for a crash diet though, handy for a fatty like me grin
