Hi all!

I've read lots about cfers on here but now I think I actually have one?! Or maybe the heat and being 7 months pregnant is making me go mad ....

Anyway! Just had garden done last weekend so I'm enjoying it lots now it's hot :-) ddog is also enjoying the new sprinkler! Today we planned on having a bbq at about 3/4 with some family members coming round. Dh was just outside setting it all up (getting bbq out cleaning it etc).

Ndn (who I know enough to say hi to/take parcels in but that's about it) has just messaged me on fb to ask if we are having a bbq. I assumed she was asking because of washing or something so I said yes at about 3. She then replied asking if she could use it too as there garden is a state and they have no bbq? I said they were welcome to join us if she liked (they have always seemed nice and I'm up for making new friends!). Anyway she didn't respond at first but now she's messaged saying no thank you they are going to an Easter egg hunt later but if they could use it before they go at about 2 that would be great????

What on Earth?! I've just replied saying I don't think that will work for us (fave mumsnet phrase!) 😂 but Aibu to think she's a cf? Or am I just not being neighbourly?

That’s weird!

No thanks we don’t want to join you we just want to hang out in your garden using your stuffconfused

EL8888 Sun 21-Apr-19 13:00:51

Total CF. Was she also planning on leaving her washing up for you to do while she was out?!

Donotunderstandmyhouse Sun 21-Apr-19 13:01:15

She has seen it and is still active 5 mins later so possibly I won't be getting a reply! I'm glad it's not me going nuts haha maybe the heat has got to her!

What?! shock That is unbelievable! 😂

Aimily Sun 21-Apr-19 13:01:48

Hahaha that's soo cheeky!!! Some people are bizarre, I can not imagine doing that, but lovely for you to offer they join you!

TheFastandCurious Sun 21-Apr-19 13:01:59

So she doesn’t want to join your BBQ she actually just wants to come and use it while you stand awkwardly watching? Haha

MothertotheLordsofmisrule Sun 21-Apr-19 13:02:00

I am flabbergasted and astounded at the brass balls on that one!

Donotunderstandmyhouse Sun 21-Apr-19 13:02:07

I wouldn't care as much if she had just wanted to chuck on a few chicken breasts or sausages while it was still hot but I get the impression if they are going out at two she wanted us to light it early to suit their plans 😳🧐

Tell her to buy her own BBQ.

Hidingtonothing Sun 21-Apr-19 13:03:00

No, she's definitely a CF! You've pretty much ruined this as a CF thread before you've started though OP by being admirably resistant to her CFery, you really should have done at least some hand wringing about sticking up for yourself first grin Well done though, sounds like you've closed her down and you will now be alert for any further signs of CF should she try again star

Donotunderstandmyhouse Sun 21-Apr-19 13:03:09

@Aimily tbh I feel a right tit inviting her round 😳 thought it could be a way of getting to know the neighbours (we haven't been here long!)

Donotunderstandmyhouse Sun 21-Apr-19 13:03:47

@Hidingtonothing hahaha sorry! I had a thread just the other day about standing up for myself more so I'm trying to put it in practice

MRex Sun 21-Apr-19 13:03:56

Hahaha, she just can't be arsed to clean the grill. Which is fair, I often can't either ----so I get DH to do it instead.

HellonHeels Sun 21-Apr-19 13:04:21

WTF? She might turn out to be one of those I've read about on MN who will pop over to use the bbq when you're out. Or you'll come home unexpectedly to find her having a glass of wine and watching your sky tv in your sitting room.

Donotunderstandmyhouse Sun 21-Apr-19 13:04:50

@MRex me too 🤣

Donotunderstandmyhouse Sun 21-Apr-19 13:06:33

Argh! Just seen her dh is now talking to mine over the fence!!! God I hope dh doesn't say they can use it, he is not one for confrontation at all and would probably give them the whole bbq if asked 🙈🙈🙈

Donotunderstandmyhouse Sun 21-Apr-19 13:07:20

I hope no one is looking up as I currently look a mad woman with my head strained out of the skylight to try and hear the conversation 😳

Moomoomoomoomoo Sun 21-Apr-19 13:09:09

Remind her that shops sell BBQs.

Donotunderstandmyhouse Sun 21-Apr-19 13:10:11

Won't lie this is the most excitement I've had all week 😳

NaturatintGoldenChestnut Sun 21-Apr-19 13:13:07

What a weirdo! Good job not enabling that crap.

PositiveVibez Sun 21-Apr-19 13:14:18
