To thank AIBU for helping me with my daily interactions?

AIBU has, over the last ten years, taught me how much most humans hate to be told they ABU.

I have since developed a way to sweeten the pill in real life and imply they ABU but never actually use the phrase YABU.

It helps with people I know, with patient interactions (am doctor) and even once with an unhelpful gentleman with my phone company!

I'm not sure I used the phrase much before, but learning to say it without actually saying it does help me out.

Totally agree OP. Also from a personal point of view it is nice to see that doctors are mere mortals with minor hang ups too. I have utmost respect for doctors and think they hold the moon.

AIBU and mumsnet in general have helped me to leave an abusive relationship, breastfeed successfully, improved my self confidence, highlighted areas I was close to becoming bigoted about, increased my policitcal and social awareness and I feel has made me a better person and communicator. Thank you mumsnet. Makes me grateful to grow up in the internet generation.
