admittedly, ive only been a member for a few months, but i have come to this conclusion. take today for instance. the main topic of conversation on this section is; parents of 5 year olds worried about which senior school to go to? on that thread is the biggest bore & snob you will ever have the misfortune to meet. this popular thread is closely followed by mums worried about whats in their kids packed lunch? mums get a life! im off for a fag.

What a strange thing to say on your first post!
I mean why bother?
Are you really that bored?

AuntJetPetunia Sun 23-Sep-07 13:25:57

Oh dear god this is going to kick off... grin

hate to tell you this but this eact type of thread gets an airing every few weeks or so too.

So you must be a frightful middle class bore too - but in a postmodern kind of way.

hmm, lets see, if a woman, who is a mom, comes onto a forum called mumsnet, and discusses her childs future, or the nourishment she is giving her child, that makes her a middle class bore?

well, quite frankly, it's better to be a middle classs bore then, than be an idiot who pours tar and nicotine into her lungs and bloodstream, so that in a few years time, the nhs, funded by the tax paid for by the same middle class bores, has to pay for your treatment for ill health caused by your smoking.

Surely MN is for people to talk through whatever is worrying them? And wahts wrong with worryinga bout what your kids eat- bit odd if you don't, in thsi day and age imo!

Presumably you wouldn't call me MC (raised in a council houe and all that, rent our home now)- but ahve been here for years and years.

Enjoy your fag, please don't blow the smoke this way

go on, go wild, smoke two!

that is 2 threads out of the hundreds...

find something that interests you rather than slagging off huge swathes of mumsnet..

i think it is perfectly reasonable to worry about their child's nutrition

mums get a life... so popping out for a fag is better than giving a hoot about what your child eats

what a peculiar point of view

BBBee Sun 23-Sep-07 13:32:49

anywya we all go through stages of being bored with it and then we like it again usually. If you are bored then start a few threads or do something else.

TheWiltedRose Sun 23-Sep-07 13:35:08

Why must you all pick up and have a bully about the smoking instead of the issue?

Smokers get an unfair rap on MN even the ones that are trying to quit please start realising that smoking does not have any effect on your parenting and shouldnt be picked on or over when thats not what the threads about!

WideWebWitch Sun 23-Sep-07 13:35:13

I reckon this is a 14 boy

WideWebWitch Sun 23-Sep-07 13:35:23

14 YO boy I meant

TheWiltedRose Sun 23-Sep-07 13:36:22

daisyandbabybootoo Sun 23-Sep-07 13:36:33

....and have some maddog 20/20 while you're at it.

BBBee Sun 23-Sep-07 13:36:38

i don;t care if she smokes

NotADragonOfSoup Sun 23-Sep-07 13:36:47

"smoking does not have any effect on your parenting" Apart from the toxins you breathe on your child and which they inhale from your clothes.

mytwopenceworth Sun 23-Sep-07 13:36:57

Well, I'm not middle class.

Am I a bore? I rather fancy myself as a funlovin' gal, but who knows....

I find mumsnet full of fun and humour - it is intelligent humour, not the verbal equivalent of a custard pie in your face...maybe you missed it. Have another look.

lulumama Sun 23-Sep-07 13:37:35

i was not bullying about the fact she has gone out for a fag...

if indeed the OP is anything other than a troll/ 14 yr old boy

BBBee Sun 23-Sep-07 13:37:44

I am middle class and I fancy that I am something of a bore at times.

barefeete Sun 23-Sep-07 13:37:45

OMG...stand back ladies it's all going to kick off here!!!

well done Op have your fag and why not open up a nice can of special brew at the same time.

TheWiltedRose Sun 23-Sep-07 13:38:10

And when you have an addiction just like any other addiction and you turn horrible and snappy and end up yelling at your child for the slightest things because you craving...

Thats better than having the odd fag is it?
