A man who has form for unfunny banter interrupted a conversation I was having about my cat with the comment

"I hate cats. If I don't want to fuck it or eat it I'm not interested."

Was I unreasonable to reply

"That must be why everyone finds you so fucking boring then"

and move on with the conversation?

His face tells me yes, but I feel strongly no. What do you think? DH is with him now so I am sure I will get his take on it in due course.....

Touche. He deserved that.

Noqonterfy Thu 19-Apr-18 22:21:23

I dunno, think you were probably quite reasonable tbh op.

HunterHearstHelmsley Thu 19-Apr-18 22:21:26

Fair play

Well done.

Cheekyandfreaky Thu 19-Apr-18 22:22:18

God he sounds awful, yanbu.

DarkPeakScouter Thu 19-Apr-18 22:22:20

Well he was asking for a salty response, butting in with that mysoginistic rubbish.

Allmyshilldren Thu 19-Apr-18 22:22:23

Nice one OP. And what sort of an arsehole hates cats?

Believeitornot Thu 19-Apr-18 22:22:31

You were just as bad as he. You worse - it wasn’t banter. Just rude

Sarahjconnor Thu 19-Apr-18 22:22:49

It's been a process of attrition thats worn me to this point.....

And your not unreasonable - you would be applauded in Glasgow for that reply lol

Sounds fair enough to me 😂

His comment was envy < not envy. You just gave it back I wouldn't worry if you can't take bantter you probably shouldn't be dishing it out!

Eatmycheese Thu 19-Apr-18 22:23:23

No he sounds like a real cockwomble

Why would you care what someone who either genuinely harbours this views or pretends to would think of you?

Theshittyendofthestick Thu 19-Apr-18 22:23:27

Completely reasonable. He was being a cock.

The problem with arguing with idiots is that they bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

I would keep a distance.

Sarahjconnor Thu 19-Apr-18 22:23:49

I was rude, and probably an asshat. I can own that. It had to be done. I keep thinking of his face and giggling grin

YouTheCat Thu 19-Apr-18 22:23:49

You were more polite than I'd have been.

Not in the slightest unreasonable.
