Is this the most overused word on Mumsnet which isn’t heard in RL? What other words or expressions do you only hear on here? (Lighthearted)

PolPotNoodle Thu 21-May-20 03:34:15

Don't forget 'livid' and 'incandescent with rage'.

HerRoyalNotness Thu 21-May-20 03:35:31

Lately it’s been horrific

Little Tarquin tripped and scraped his knee, it was horrific!

@PolPotNoodle @herroyalnotness I shall try to use horrific and livid on here tomorrow 😂

Haven’t come across “incandescent with rage“ must be missing out on the really awful posts!!!

AIBU and "You do you"

Appreciate both - just do not hear IRL

Fuming. All guns blazing. Disgusted.

Utterly ridiculous.

I hate a lot of things people say on here. Some of them are ugly and "Tear him a new one"


I'm no prude...I swear and everything...but talking about 'tearing someone a new arsehole" is gross.

Then there's the lovely "It boils my piss"

No. Just no. Oh and the overly used and chronically unfunny "Are you on glue?"

Not at all as amusing as people seem to think it is.

Disgraceful is also common.

Cissyandflora Thu 21-May-20 04:26:05

Batshit crazy and unhinged. Who says that in rl?

Did you mean to be so rude?

dunnybum Thu 21-May-20 04:34:29

I hate that one @sonichu it's really not the comeback people seem to think it is.

dunnybum Thu 21-May-20 04:36:13

"Would you say that to someone in RL?"

Well yeah I would actually.

Toilenstripes Thu 21-May-20 05:22:40

“Gets on my tits” is one that makes me judge.

Thepigeonsarecoming Fri 22-May-20 01:01:27

Loving these, thank you 😂

CannonCaboodle Fri 22-May-20 01:03:10

Discusting, guys. I mean, it's so grim that I'm just raging.

CJsGoldfish Fri 22-May-20 01:05:28

I prefer fumming or loosing my shit 🤣

Batshit crazy and unhinged. Who says that in rl?
We say batshit crazy all the time!

Thepigeonsarecoming Fri 22-May-20 01:08:48

I do love a fuming post 😂

FOJN Fri 22-May-20 01:10:31

Afraid I use batshit crazy (often just batshit) and grim frequently in real life. I like unhinged too but have fewer opportunities for that one smile

AlCalavicci Fri 22-May-20 01:15:53

Red flags

I have never heard that IRL , i think most would say 'warning signs'

iklboo Fri 22-May-20 01:21:02

Shaking with anger
