That not Mumsnet exclusively but with those kind if chat rooms that no matter what you ask for an opinion on, you always tend to get the majority of opposing opinions rather than agreement?
I.e OP “I love apples” 50 replies “I can’t believe that, how can you like apples. How rude!” 10 replies agreeing they like apples.

OP “I hate apples” 100 replies “I can’t believe you are not giving apples a chance. How disrespectful” 2 replies “I’m not a fan of apples either”

Nope, I think the opposite to you grin

@FriedasCarLoad I bet you think I am also very rude, ignorant and entitled for posting this in the first place 😂

I’m disappointed this isn’t a flounce. I love a good flounce.

DramaAlpaca Tue 12-Nov-19 22:39:50

Me too PurpleDaisies, there hasn't been a good flounce for ages sad

wantthismummy Tue 12-Nov-19 22:40:08

@purpledaises I do apologise. Maybe start disagreeing with me and I will think about it!

PurpleDaisies Tue 12-Nov-19 22:41:01

I’m flouncing at the lack of flouncing. That’s it. I’m done.

<holds the door open for Purple>

PurpleDaisies Tue 12-Nov-19 22:53:09

How dare you hold the door open for me.

I can open the door myself, thank you very much. 🖕

Miljea Tue 12-Nov-19 22:53:56

But, you haven't yet explained, to my satisfaction,why apples?

Hmm? Because until you tell my why you ask, I won't reply.

OK, I won't reply, anyway. You won't see my ass back in this thread, oh no.

I sed my piece, I'm gone.... 🙄

Having filled MN centimetres that none of us will ever get back.

<lets door go on Purple's fingers>

PurpleDaisies Tue 12-Nov-19 23:07:57

Damn you Drama. I can’t flounce now. I need to start a thread about whether to go to A and E or not.

Flouncing will resume at a later date

wantthismummy Tue 12-Nov-19 23:08:31

@Miljea point well made! When I explain why apples there will be many comments telling me that my explanation isn’t acceptable!

The other day somebody asked for advice on cat insurance. Told her which companies my vet considers good and bad. You'd think vets would know?

This was immediately followed by somebody saying 'hmm your vet an expert is he?!'

So yeah. Fuck those people!

People love to polarise.

@LiterallyCantBelieveIt Your vet is an expert is she! That’s hilarious! No, vets obviously don’t have to deal with pet insurers at any point in their careers! biscuit I swear some people just come on here looking to upset or argue others.

wantthismummy Wed 13-Nov-19 11:47:02

I definitely meant to press the biscuit and not the biscuit below it! 😂

wantthismummy Wed 13-Nov-19 11:47:36

wink I meant wink! Fat thumbs or what!

LiterallyCantBelieveIt Wed 13-Nov-19 22:12:18

I know Wantthismummy!!! It's unbelievably argumentative isn't it?

I'm just baffled by their behaviour grin
