To wonder how one redeems oneself when shown to be being completely unreasonable on AIBU threads?

Well, how?

Or just forget it and hide the thread.

grin re. namechange idea.

Kerry - I freely admit I am wrong! I even said so!

But I reckon everyone still hates me [pathetic]

Just don't worry about it. People don't always have the same point of view, this is life. It's a learning thing, the AIBU threads can show you another perspective that you couldn't see before. If you realise that you were out of order just apologise and move on, I won't personally hate you for it (don't know about the rest of MN though

joke!) grin

Aw Flamingo - was your thread the pocket money one?

ach just carry on as if nothings happened. I havent seen your thread anyway

Listen, do NOT now change your name. You are now KNOWN. Pretty soon, you'll start seeing your name popping up in popularity threads. It's memorable.

Stick around and change nothing - you've just exploded on to the scene.

Go and do some sticking a gluing whilst you wait for it to drop down the active convo's grin

But when you graciously admit you are being a tad unreasonable (as you did) you go UP in people's estimation. Not a case of having to redeem yourself at all. Not in my book anyway. If someone says differently, send them over here. <rolls sleeves up>

make a nice glittery card for them perhaps?


BitOfFun Sun 21-Jun-09 20:47:20

Aww, we love you anyway, unreasonable or not grin

spicemonster Sun 21-Jun-09 20:47:53

You admitted you were wrong so I reckon you can walk away with your dignity intact. It takes a big woman to admit she made a mistake. There's always going to be idiots who only read the OP before piling in and you know you can ignore them. So if I were you, I'd hide the thread and go and get yourself a large G&T.

Alternatively, change your name and join in on the bunfight, giving yourself a hard time.

Downside of option b) of course is that you will inevitably forget to change your name, someone will work out that you are one and the same, everyone will shriek troll and you will never be able to lift your head over the MN parapet again.

I'd stick with a) if I were you.

No, I think teeny tiny scraps of tissue paper in green, black and brown. All over the body with flour glue. Leave overnight remembering to insert a tube for piss. No-one will notice you.

theloneposter Sun 21-Jun-09 20:49:05

don't start another thread about it, most people forget threads within minutes.

LupusinaLlamasuit Sun 21-Jun-09 20:49:17

Cmon, no-one will hold it against you, toughen up! grin

In my experience on this board people introduce a whole new set of information which in fact shows you were in fact being very very reasonable (wink)

cornsilk Sun 21-Jun-09 20:54:30

Oh Doodle - you are a master at the finger!!

Doodle2u Sun 21-Jun-09 20:55:30
