My son and his girlfriend have been together for almost 15 months now.

They are both 19.

She brought him a jumper like in the picture. I don't really want to be a judgement bitch and I know I can't really tell him what and what not to wear but come on. Maybe if they were 15 but they're not, they're adults. It's okay for lounging around the house in but surely not for actually going out?

grin they're 19. Im sure it's funny to them.

There are worse things he could be wearing.

Dont make me link.

You know I'll do it...

It's a joke surely?!

Euphemia Thu 23-Jun-16 21:43:13

It's just a bit of a laugh, surely? If he's fine with wearing it, I don't see the problem.

Oh Jesus, it's a bit of a laugh, what the hell is the problem

Will he wear it? Will she feel offended if he doesn't?

I think its a joke ,although you should start worrying if she boils any small animals up in a big pan.....

It's just a joke. It's funny. They're only 19.

As an engagement present, my friend bought an "I'm with stupid" t-shirt for me <shrug>

DH wears it in bed.

It's just a naff joke.

Jesus Christ.

Lighten up.

We are early 30s and we get each other plenty joke tees.

Needaclevernickname - remember when we were kids and a swimming sock was footwear for when you had a veruka...

And I've never had a verruca either but I get the feeling I'm missing the point completely

Arfarfanarf Thu 23-Jun-16 22:04:49

Autocorrect wink may fail sometimes most of the time but it helps occasionally

Ooh cringe

HooseRice Thu 23-Jun-16 22:11:40

He probably wear it only indoors.

I think that shirt would only be funny on a properly ugly bloke.

littlejeopardy Thu 23-Jun-16 22:13:24

Yes, it's childish... Its a joke between teenagers!

You don't like her OP do you? grin

I think it's funny. I want to get one for ds2- who appears to have a whole entourage of girls after him.

It's naff, but it's meant to be! Do you not like his girlfriend?

Ijustneedanameplease Thu 23-Jun-16 22:21:48

No, I don't like her, I love her! She is like a second daughter to me!

It's just her, my son and my daughter take the piss not stop about my 17 year old sons 16 year old girlfriend doing things like that. Saying its "cringey" and makes them sick in their mouths.

Turns out all that it was was a piss take. It was her and my daughters idea of a joke as he said he would break up with straight away if she even did anything "gay" like that.

she's made it clear it's not to actually wear outside of the house. grin

Why are people getting angsty about silly things this evening? confused This one, the lady who's DH asked where the town hall was, the one angsting over identical school reports that no one will remember in five years time.

And to rush on to MN and actually post about it? confused Is it a coping mechanism for possible brexit?
