to lie on my national just form and use "dr" with a gender neutral name so either mu husband or my sister could use it depending on who's with my??

That is actual genius 😮

RiverTam Sat 17-Sep-16 20:29:14

Oh, that's very clever. Wish I done it on a membership I've just taken out!

Yes you would be unreasonable. The money goes towards making sure the properties and areas are kept as well as possible for future generations. Lots of volunteers also work hard at national trust properties and it really isn't expensive for a years membership. We save a fortune in car parking alone.

I have just checked when mine runs out: next month.

Do you mean using DR as a first name?

Because there's 3 boxes. Title, first name, surname

So not sure how you would get away with that?

Dr Sam Smith???

maloryt0wers Sat 17-Sep-16 20:35:06

Yes of course you are being unreasonable, but im sure you know that. What would happen if everyone did this?
Anyway don't you and DH want to go at the same time?

cuntinghomicidalcardigan Sat 17-Sep-16 20:35:06

Dr Lesley Smith?

sooperdooper Sat 17-Sep-16 20:35:19


No, eg. Dr (title) Sam (gender neutral) Smith smile

Bagina Sat 17-Sep-16 20:35:19

Dr Sam Smith???

just reread that! how many typos can you have in one op. blush
I get that the money goes towards the upkeep and all but it's actually stopping me joining since my husband would only be able to go once in a while and then I'd be pissed having to pay for anyone who comes with me when I'd paid membership

maloryt0wers Sat 17-Sep-16 20:38:31

Oh just reread, either DH or DSis .

Stealing from a charity. Nice.

TwistNshout Sat 17-Sep-16 20:39:12

You do realise the NT is a charity don't you? Are you comfortable defrauding a charity?

Lazyafternoon Sat 17-Sep-16 20:39:47

Genius idea!

But it is a tad mean spirited. NT is a charity after all. If it were a big profit making business I might feel differently. But cheating a charity - YABU.

Would you also shoplift items from the gift shop?

StealthPolarBear Sat 17-Sep-16 20:40:43

It's ok. I'm sure the sister will buy a scone. Because the nt makes those for nowt.

mogloveseggs Sat 17-Sep-16 20:42:41

I'd do it.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sat 17-Sep-16 20:42:46

Has no one mentioned the Scottish NT scam yet?

My2favboys Sat 17-Sep-16 20:43:54

I'm not technically stealing. I will pay membership for two adults, I'd just like it to be flexible with who the second adult is. It's similar to lending your pass to someone if you weren't using it

wasonthelist Sat 17-Sep-16 20:45:19

Thatchers children - it's not wrong if you don't get caught.

MenMust Sat 17-Sep-16 20:47:15

YABU. You are defrauding a charity.
