ok, so a woman just rang for my DH, all chatty and friendly like.........................

and speaks as tho she knows him well.

so I am all hmm, and asking very guardedly who it might be.

"oh, just the lady who won him on the auction and now owns him"


yes, I am aware that my husband was auctioned, it was an auction I arranged and planned to raise money for my children dance school (and we raised over £1000 in the end, dead chuffed me), but to tell me, his wife, that she now owns him.....

I feel a little hmm

she was a guest, so not another mum from the school (and so not someone I talk to), so not one that I am friendly and bouncy with, so her being like that was a little odd IMO.


it was for DH to go do building work. he is a bricklayer by trade, but can do other stuff, and there was another dad with DH who is going to also work with him, the other dad is not a bricklayer, but can do most stuff. not sure if he is actually qualified for anything, but that is neither her nor there really......rambling nowblush

point is, I was not overly impressed that a strange woman calls me, and when I identify myself as his wife as he is not there (ie, leave a message), she then claims 'ownership'.

thing is tho AIBU to feel a little hmm, or was it really just a bit of fun and I have taken it wrong.

I do not want to get stroppy in case I run into her and the strop was my issues and nothing else IYGWIM.

Do you think she was drunk?

She was probably just trying to be friendly but overstepped the mark a bit.

I'd let it wash over me in your place.

superpsychofabioslayersfriend Sat 13-Sep-08 11:47:21

I would take it with a pinch of salt tbh

OneLieIn Sat 13-Sep-08 11:47:42

Honestly have a laugh about it and relax!

SuperPsychoFabioSlayer Sat 13-Sep-08 11:48:01

at this time of day???

maybe I guess, but I would hope not!!!

she probably is just like this and I have taken it all wrong havent; I.

if it were an auction where by we bid for men or women to do fun stuff for us, I could kind of 'get it', (maybehmm), but for brickwork......


mrsruffallo Sat 13-Sep-08 11:48:33

She was joking.
I really don't think that she is going to apply for legal ownership

zippitippitoes Sat 13-Sep-08 11:49:04

she was having a laugh smile

auctioning yourself is fun isnt it so you would expect some jokey stuff

and that sounds extremely mild


unknownrebelbang Sat 13-Sep-08 11:49:12

Sorry, but your post has made me laugh.

squeaver Sat 13-Sep-08 11:49:32

Actually she's probably just one of those OTT people and that's the way she is when speaking to the butcher, the supermarket till person etc.

Annoying but hey ho.

SuperPsychoFabioSlayer Sat 13-Sep-08 11:50:04

see, if she had rung last night when we were both in, and I was more relaxed, than I probably would have just laughed it all off.

but this morning.....

DH is at work building extension for friend, boys are louder than ever, and I drank probably a bit too much last night and so am fragile....

thats it isn;t it, I am fragile and have taken it all the wrong way.



BreeVanderCampLGJ Sat 13-Sep-08 11:50:25

Tell her she can have him, if she is willing to take on the snoring, the farting.....<insert further comments as appropriate>> grin

yabu! she was haviung a laugh!

SuperPsychoFabioSlayer Sat 13-Sep-08 11:51:26

I like that plan!

ownership clearly implies ownership of all does it not

zippitippitoes Sat 13-Sep-08 11:55:31

SuperPsychoFabioSlayer Sat 13-Sep-08 11:58:43

I was zippi, yes.

she took his mobile number and ran away quick.

oh god, now she will tell the mum who she is friends with, who does go to the scholl, and I will be know has 'psycho with a pole up her arse' instead of 'chatty friendly psycho'
