to hate and detest the threads that do that "guess what " thing

FFS just tell us. I don't have time to read hundreds of random guesses until the OP finally spits it out, by which time most of the guesses have been far funnier anyway. Unreasonable? Possibly. Frustrated? Yep!

yabu, dont read um if they piss you off so much.

i think they are funny.

i've just read 2 of them - although the first one was where they didn't knwo what was going to happen.
just started to read another then realised it hadn't ended yet and closed it.
first time i've seen them, so i didn't realise!

YANBU

Guessing games make me barf.

My friend always tries to guess what's in parcels I give her. It's the most embarrassing thing in the world if she guesses something better then what I've actually given her.

Just fecking open it.

I know blush. Sometimes though I only have a couple of minutes on here and just want to know what the op ate that was so weird or what their DH sat on in the park that stuck to his trousers and made them all laugh etc etc. I just want to know immediately dammit! grin

not even a tiny bit funny guys?

The ones that are funny are the ongoing sagas like the one where the OP's DP was a cheating shit so another mumsnetter arranged to meet him in the rain outside a monkey zoo (or something like that). Its just the ones that are about one answer that go on forever that make me scream.

My DC do it. "Mummy, guess what?"
"What?"
"No, guess!"

hmm

I don't like it when they do it either.

Hate is such a negative emotion

Chill, it's Friday

I hate em too btw, and I always end up getting sucked in, guessing, but cross posting with people because I'm trying to make sure I've spelt it right and my computer is slow.

I just read the one about the boy's name. I don'r mind guessing games if they are funny but I don't like it when people take the piss like that on an open forum.

I find them quite entertaining..

Guess why?..... grin

Thunderduck Fri 17-Jul-09 15:20:53

I hate them too. Just tell us what it is fgs.

The fact that the guesses are funnier than the answer* is surely the point.

(*Except Einstein!)
