So nearly 2 years ago a fell foul of a clique of School mums after a particular night I decided I would politely decline. Any further invitations but made it clear I was happy to see people from the group one to one. Only one of a group of 6 sees me and the group now. So that wendy if the group posted yesterday about her funny caring tribe in an international woman’s day tribute it was sooooo tempting to post a sarcastic response but I didn’t obvs. Met them at a small ca event yesterday evening and went over said hello how are you all as all the kids were there and I am an adult ffs anyway they left no goodbye or quick bye now . Why are people such fake assholes !!!

Sorry auto correct and typos everywhere :-)

StillCoughingandLaughing Sat 09-Mar-19 21:26:50

Erm... what’s your question?

scissorsandpen Sat 09-Mar-19 21:32:46

Ha yes fair point but pretty much why do people post absolute crap that they then don’t practice in RL but I take your point probably more of a vent post :-)

Hang on, so this group aren't your friends? They are former friends except for one whom you see regularly?

scissorsandpen Sat 09-Mar-19 21:37:06

Yes that’s correct.?but for the sake of politeness and example to children a polite goodbye is not that hard. Children are all still friends. All makes for awkwardness all round .

Biancadelrioisback Sat 09-Mar-19 21:39:33

I suppose it depends on the event/occasion. If there were lots of people there then it would be a huge pain to try and find someone you don't particularly like just to say goodbye.

No empty me and friend and them (former friends) and kids . To be fair if you can call it a fallout was one woman others just followed. Just annoyed me all the lift women up stuff and then the way I was treated the way they bitch and tear down one another seriously sitting on my hands !!!

But we can all be hypocrites, I am for IWD but it does not mean I have had the greatest relationships with women, but I believe my relationships with women would have been so much better if not formed in a patriarchal society.

scissorsandpen Sat 09-Mar-19 22:46:43

Interesting how so boulshired ?

AcidityRegulated Sat 09-Mar-19 22:51:23

This is why I support IWD.

blueshoes Sat 09-Mar-19 22:52:08

IWD tributes can be fake and cringey and made by women with no clue.

blueshoes Sat 09-Mar-19 22:52:31

Just virtue signalling.

Can you explain how you feel that you’re being unreasonable? Preferably in a way that normal humans can understand.

Boulshired Sat 09-Mar-19 22:54:27

Because I cannot measure up, a great wife, a great homemaker, a great parent - can I be all- something has to give. So we make a choice and to justify we criticise those who make a different choice. Whilst men -well they continue to be men.

blueshoes Sat 09-Mar-19 22:54:41

My posts crossed with acid's and are not in response to hers.

1Redacted1 Sat 09-Mar-19 22:55:30

I sometimes think that people post on MN by just hitting random keys on their phones.

scissorsandpen Sat 09-Mar-19 22:59:01

Acid I like that I really do . Blue shoes what is virtue signalling ?

Boulshired ahhh yes it’s is hard to measure up and the vast majority of men hmm continue to be ehhh men :-)

scissorsandpen Sat 09-Mar-19 23:00:53

To me I feel that women don’t need men to oppress them they are doing a grand old job of tearing one another down all by themselves.

CheshireChat Sat 09-Mar-19 23:03:02

Well, they might like the idea of IWD and what it stands for, but not like you in particular as harsh as that sounds.

I do personally hate it when people don't say hello/ goodbye as I'd still greet the devil regardless of my feelings!

scissorsandpen Sat 09-Mar-19 23:07:18

Don’t think there is any doubt that they don’t like me :-) but being
Adults and setting examples to the kids is important to me am just having a vent at the sheer hypocrisy of which I know we are all guilty .

Boulshired Sat 09-Mar-19 23:08:22

Patriarchy means many women juggle the balls of modern life whilst some men just have to juggle their own balls. We tear each other down because the scrutiny is on us.

I just wished they would change a loo roll and actually look in a cupboard for hand soap instead of replacing with the shower gel ‘sigh’

2019willbegreat Sat 09-Mar-19 23:22:34

What??? Is IWD about changing loo roll??? Are you expecting the school mums to do this??? I'm not following you OP.

scissorsandpen Sat 09-Mar-19 23:27:30

Ha sorry in response to another poster. On here it seems that conversation should not ensue but more a post and maybe an update.

I’m venting, posting here for traffic and annoyed at social media posts like IWD or bullying or some other thing that clearly
Poster does not adhere too .
