To be fed up of the nocturnal chuckling of my wife ?

My wife is reading some post on AIBU which she clearly finds most titivating based on the amount of chuckling. AIBU to find this a little vexing when it wakes our child ?

YABU not to just turn and mention it to her.

In our house the rule is that if you wake the child, you get to settle the child after.

You sound a bit weirdly resentful of your wife reading something funny though.

PappaWolf Wed 06-Dec-17 23:36:46

But is it that funny ? She’s sounding like Mutley and I’m worried she may stop breathing

YABU to spell titillating as titivating.

What and unkind message to leave about your partner. I assume you yourself are only a delight to be around.

As you are putting this somewhere you clearly want your partner to see it, I have to wonder why you are deliberately tryibg to hurt her?

I think she's probably reading the thread about Janet owning running. It's definitely a regular snort inducer.

Now I'm in trouble from snorting at reading this. Im always getting in trouble for chuckling at things i read online. I would certainly be concerned about her laughing like mutley though, any time I laugh like that it's normally because I need a puff on my inhaler

AdoraBell Wed 06-Dec-17 23:53:52

Yes, YABU, you should join in the mirth.

If you're my DH from two nights ago, then fair enough. I did snort a bit over a sequin/vulva gag.

DonnyAndVladSittingInATree Wed 06-Dec-17 23:57:40

Am I the only one who read this as lighthearted/tongue in cheek?

BitOfFun Wed 06-Dec-17 23:57:51

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. I got told off for laughing on my own like a weirdo over these this week.

You should ask, "what are they saying on MN?" on a loop, like my DH does.

Did you know there is a similar thread from a wife about her husband going on Mumsnet just to complain about her waking up the child? It’s really funny...

Titivating is actually another word altogether:

verb informal
gerund or present participle: titivating
1. make small enhancing alterations to (something).
"she slapped on her warpaint and titivated her hair"
synonyms:groom, smarten (up), spruce up, freshen up, preen, primp, 2. tidy, arrange, gussy up, doll up
"she titivated herself in front of the hall mirror"

No DonnyAndVladSittingInATree it seems very obviously lighthearted to me!

WorraLiberty Thu 07-Dec-17 00:05:28

It's really obviously lighthearted but totally criiiiiinge too.

I'm literally reading between the fingers that are covering my eyes blush

<< Shudders >>

TheGoalIsToStayOutOfTheHole Thu 07-Dec-17 00:08:58

My husband gets annoyed sometimes when I am on MN late. For some reason I ony ever seem to find funny (actually laugh out loud...or vibrate and try to laugh silently) threads at like 4am blush

DonnyAndVladSittingInATree Thu 07-Dec-17 00:14:13

I don’t have a husband. But I do now understand why the cat looks at me funny. It’s the mutley inspired laugh.

FiFiLaPoodle Thu 07-Dec-17 00:14:34

Two words...

Separate rooms

gingergenius Thu 07-Dec-17 07:59:54

Yep. It's definitely the Janet thread!

thewisestoldelf Thu 07-Dec-17 09:40:31


Fuck sake I'm actually crying with laughter at my desk in work 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

GoodChristmasGuest Thu 07-Dec-17 09:51:05

YADNBU. Honestly, my dh drives me nuts with this. Some things (really not funny things ) make him literally cry with laughter. The whole sofa/bed shudders and shakes and he sorts or squeals/cries and does a 'woo hoo hoo' type of laugh. While shaking violently. While I'm trying to sleep angry I have asked him to please only watch anything remotely amusing, such as, ( for the 1000th time) the video of the man making the turkeys gobble when he's in another room angry He still cries with laughter at it. confused

Bloody wish I could have a separate room.
