AIBU to ask a completely vague (lighthearted) question?

Something happened.

It was very bad and someone else's fault, possibly their child, possibly their MIL.

It may or may not have involved a flooded basement.

I've considered storming into school and confronting the head, changing the locks and baking again from scratch, gluten free. AIBU?

Dont want to give too many details as it could give you the faintest idea of what I'm on about be outing. Asking for a friend.

I was afraid you might say that.

But this has happened 200 times before and eventually theres a bacon sarnie moment.

I'm afraid you're at a crossroads.

I'd like to send you the number of a bakery support line but with the flood, I'm worried your wires may be fried.

RIP to all things pastry and fluffy with jam in the middle.

💐 for you.

Log it with 101, then LTB and treat yourself to a spa day. Whatever has happened that probably covers it.

I think my keyboard was just hacked

If the children are causing hassle and flooding basements you could get your friend to discipline them. If it's your MIL then tell your Dh to grow a pair and go NC, but whatever you do, don't go on holiday with her.

I blame Brexit.

You don’t have a MIL problem, you have a DH problem.

Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time

Did you eventually find your ironing board or was it just at the local park doing his very outing, so unnamed hobby?

This would never have happened if you'd just washed your towels every day.

Bumfuzzled Thu 10-Oct-19 10:00:07

It all depends on where your legs meet. Would penguin bollards help?

Is this a reverse?

Neome Thu 10-Oct-19 10:00:26

Keyboard hacked again.

I told my friend to put an ironing board between her legs but she looked hmm although he, she or they may just have been doing their hobby which can involve some interesting facial expressions (dont want to say more)

I can't believe you have a toilet brush, you heathen

DioneTheDiabolist Thu 10-Oct-19 10:04:07

I'm going to go against the grain OP and say that if you had used buttermilk instead of regular milk in your pancakes, none of this would have happened.hmm

UCM, is that you?

It's usually Zoflora, isn't it?

CheeryB Thu 10-Oct-19 10:06:49

Just remember. In a cellar, everything gets darked on. Stay out.

So the head stole your DD's bag of gerbils and is now applying to be a governor at another school?

Obviously report report report!

TheQueef Thu 10-Oct-19 10:09:44

Did you report it?
They shouldn't be working with the public.
Can you take in ironing? I do understand the ironing board situation but every little helps.
