didnt like being introduced by friend at her party to her friends, as 'this is ------, she is like a helpful grandmother to me'

WTF! i am only 3 yrs older than her!!!!

Perhaps it is time for Botox.

I know it is for me.

Do you knit fot her a lot?

MovingOutOfBlighty Tue 21-Jul-09 11:07:36

Or smell of lavender and cloves?

bridewolf Tue 21-Jul-09 11:11:01

no i cant knit, and dont smell of lavender and cloves.

and yes gravity, too much wine, and kids has made me look older.

I dont wear beige, and dye my hair to stop the grey showing. and put on nice make up, wear skirts and high heels on occasion, with of course, my magic slimming knickers.....................and am not using a tenna lady yet.

So, do you fart inadvertantly and blame it on the cat.

Is it that? It must be something.

It's her way of telling you that you smell of wee and have whiskers.

MovingOutOfBlighty Tue 21-Jul-09 11:15:01

Good to hear about the Tena Lady. Always want to know about posters urinary control. I am reassured.

i think you're being over-sensitive, it's not offensive really.

I bet her likening you to a helpful grandmother isn't anything to do with your resemblance to an old person.

Are you full of nowledge and wisdom and pass this stuff down to her?

bridewolf Tue 21-Jul-09 11:18:14

wee and whiskers.............great. just great.

and what about the other comment about my inherited furniture, ( which I love) being similar to her grandmothers which her mother has now got, and is sooooo old fashioned.................and gosh doesnt it look all grown up now!

and before anyone asks, I dont have a cat, or a wheely shopping bag.........

a whistling hearing aid?

MorrisZapp Tue 21-Jul-09 17:54:24

You're annoyed because she was meant to say that your grandmother's furniture was modern?

blue rinse?

Confuzzeled Tue 21-Jul-09 18:14:03

I think if one of my friends called me a granny, I'd be tempted to ask why she thought I was like one?

MovingOutOfBlighty Tue 21-Jul-09 18:16:08

Is it that you keep offering around slightly soft, furry Werthers Originals from the bottom of your handbag?

babyball Tue 21-Jul-09 22:51:06

Do you push younger people out of the way aggressively at market stalls, or do you perhaps complain that in your day, you could actually hear a tune and lyrics in popular music?

HerBeatitude Tue 21-Jul-09 22:54:38

Do you constantly advise her that her child needs a good smack?

VelvetPlum Tue 21-Jul-09 22:56:32

Lol at you lot!

She sounds a bit of an arse, you're her friend and she should introduce you as such, no explanatory info needed.

WhereYouLeftIt Tue 21-Jul-09 23:04:54

And you describe her as a friend, why?
