Been seeing someone for around 3 months. We get in we'll but he's quirky, which is fine - well I thought it was. Sometimes I'm starting to think he's just plain odd.

He's overweight and said he wanted to get fitter so I suggested he come along to my karate class. He did and I ended up mortified. He wore scruffy old jogging suit bottoms with paint on them and a massive baggy t-shirt with Harry Potter on. Whenever instructor showed him something he giggled. Instructor is hard arse, old school - I've known him for years and knew he was going to react badly. After 3 or so giggling moments and DB stood in weird positions and flapping his arms around like a little girl instructor said "what are you giggling at? Are you a girl or what? Do you have something wrong with you?". Everyone was looking. DB started stuttering and instructor carried on with "you know this is karate and not ballet don't you? Are you in the wrong class?". DBs face went bright red. I was mortified and just wanted to hide. Another female instructor said "alright, it's his first day" so instructor said "but what's he giggling at?". Anyway later on instructor came over to me and said "where the hell did you find him? Is he one of your patients or something?" I was so embarrassed I just said "he's a neighbour".

After the class I asked DB why he kept laughing. I'd warned him beforehand about the instructor. He replied "it was funny, I thought I looked silly!" So I said "you did, why did you act like that? It's a class full of martial artists, nobody else was acting like that" do he looked embarrassed and said "I don't know" so I said he shouldn't come again as instructor will have it in for him now. He got upset and said "but I like spending time with you" so I snapped and farted and said "well you embarrassed me, I've been going there for years and now I don't want to go back because of you, find your own hobby".

Anyway this isn't an isolated incident, a couple of weeks ago he embarrassed me in a cafe shouting and making a scene. In private we get on really well but in private he mortifies me.

He still wants to come to karate with me tonight. AIBU to tell him I don't want him there?

My toddler angry trumps too. I feel she loses some of the weight to her argument. Do you find the same, Op? flowers


Scrumplestiltskin Fri 15-Jun-18 12:28:07

Classics, please! I just spent the last half hour laughing til I nearly wet myself, while the DH eyed me with bewildered suspicion grin

Classics please!

Could someone explain the pigeon reference to me? I seem to have missed it and can't find it. Also what's "the ick"?

picklemepopcorn Fri 15-Jun-18 12:37:49

I think any thread that gives rise to a catch phrase should be in classics. We all know we'll be us8ng the phrase in future...

OopsISnartedAgain Fri 15-Jun-18 12:37:51

Felt a little name change was in order. Thanks OP!

One poster asked why the OPs b/f was calling her a dog and another poster said "Dog is her username, you pigeon!" (or words to that effect)

The ick I assume is when you take a turn against someone (the b/f in this case, makes you feel icky, makes your skin crawl a bit)

Ahh thanks @Trinity66

I've just laughed and farted through this thread. I do just fart a lot though.

halfwitpicker Fri 15-Jun-18 12:49:04

Bloody hilarious.

halfwitpicker Fri 15-Jun-18 12:49:53

OP did you write a post a few weeks back about shagging a Spanish mechanic in the bushes with the dog watching?

did I dream that

LandOfOddSocks Fri 15-Jun-18 12:55:29

I wonder if dragons fart fire. 🐉🔥

HebeMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 15-Jun-18 12:55:55

OK, it looks not quite unanimous but pretty heavily weighted on the side of going into Classics. We'll move it over now.

SnappyFartingPigeon Fri 15-Jun-18 13:10:34

There isn't enough fun in the world IMO. I vote for Classics.

Pfftlife Fri 15-Jun-18 13:14:46

What I want to know is if you stared him straight in the eye as you farted or off into the distance

SayCoolNowSayWhip Fri 15-Jun-18 13:18:50

Thanks OP and MN for not letting me get an iota of work done today, and also practically giving myself an asthma attack by holding in my giggles (and snarts).

Was the dragon on his T-shirt.... a snapdragon ? <runs>

"Was the dragon on his T-shirt.... a snapdragon"

Don't be silly. He's not a girl. <runs away even faster than SayCool>

TuTru Fri 15-Jun-18 13:22:08

Why would you even say that you farted?
I need to know.

ChocEggNoThanks Fri 15-Jun-18 13:25:32

@HebeMumsnet when you say the OP is having fun... this thread has Sharon / wasp / trexing all over it grin I don't even care if it's real. I don't understand why it's so funny. I just know I cried and cried with laughter when I really needed it after a long and difficult week. So flowers for moving this thread to Classics. May she bring laughter to all who sail in her grin

Thishatisnotmine Fri 15-Jun-18 13:28:12

Why didn't I read this sooner? Cheered me up!

Like fart acting from Friends, except it's angry fart snapping. Perhaps it's a new technique that all thespians will use henceforth to express their emotions. Not performance art, but performance fart....

SayNoToCarrots Fri 15-Jun-18 13:33:00

Does anyone remember the thread about the woman on the bus in the flight seat?

SayCoolNowSayWhip Fri 15-Jun-18 13:33:03

@liz70 - you run like a girl.... grin
