My ex just called me on the phone. I was so frustrated and angry afterwards, that I just went and kicked my table in and its a wreck on the floor now with pot pourri everywhere. What is my mum going to say?

starlover Mon 09-May-05 15:04:36

she is going to say...
"get that mess cleared up young lady!"

Hulababy Mon 09-May-05 15:04:43

Maybe you need to pick it all up and hoover the floors, before she sees it. Then it won't look quite so bad.

starlover Mon 09-May-05 15:08:19

when she asks where the table is just say

"table? what table?"

or go out. PMSL at Starlover

AnnaInManchester Mon 09-May-05 15:10:55

lol....the table cost just short of a thousand pound

Hulababy Mon 09-May-05 15:11:54

I also suggest you start thinking of a way of "paying her back" then. Have all this info ready, with an action, plan, a GOOD excuse, and it all tidy - and then tell her.

But did it feel good Anna?

Have you got good home insurance? For 'accidental damage' Is there any way you could have fallen into the table ??

AnnaInManchester Mon 09-May-05 15:21:28

it felt good at the time, as did throwing my mobile phone and watching it shatter into pieces but my mobile phone is ok. now its reality. a nanny who kicks tables in?!?! who's gonna employ me now? think i'll have to go into early retirement at the grand old age of 21.

Don't you have a DS/DD/dog you could blame?

AnnaInManchester Mon 09-May-05 15:37:47

Lol....I have 2 dogs except they're yorkshire terriers and are only 3 inches tall from the ground!!!

HappyDaddy Mon 09-May-05 15:59:01

She'll say why didn't you do that to your ex's head, instead of my lovely table?

Janos Mon 09-May-05 16:08:12

Err, is it your table Anna? Cos if not you're in pretty deep sh*t, aren't you?

Probably a good idea if you follow Hulababy's advice!

AnnaInManchester Mon 09-May-05 16:16:27

I texted her and told her she might be mad at me, then she text back 'why', and I told her what happened but she said she doesnt mind!

Janos Mon 09-May-05 16:21:55

Mmm,maybe she doesn't like the table

HappyDaddy Mon 09-May-05 16:48:21

can you trash a few more bits?

AnnaInManchester Mon 09-May-05 16:52:27

nah happy daddy....i've calmed down now! I dont know what came over me, I'm usually so rational and calm!

AnnaInManchester Mon 09-May-05 16:54:04

Lol, Janos - I think it looks so much nicer and spacious without it. Whats that saying - less is more?!

HappyDaddy Mon 09-May-05 16:57:02

I remember my dw phoned me once to say that she'd just ripped up her new suit. Said she just felt angry for no reason.

morningpaper Mon 09-May-05 16:59:40

You did her a favour dispensing with the pot pourri - what is this, 1987?

Sounds like she's seeing it generously though - a narrow escape!

AnnaInManchester Mon 09-May-05 17:01:14

Lol happydaddy - its a woman thing, u wouldnt understand!

morning paper - i cant believe how nice she was! shes usually a witch but has been nice about it!

Papillon Mon 09-May-05 17:07:42

were you wearing steel cap boots!

AnnaInManchester Mon 09-May-05 17:11:21

Lol, I didn't stamp on the table!!! I got my sword out and swished it and swoshed it and cut it to shreds!
Really I just roared out a great big roar, making my 2 little dogs tremble bless - they did get a cuddle and an apology afterwards!, then I sort of kicked the table and it just collapsed and the legs snapped in two and the pot pourri went on the floor.

AnnaInManchester Mon 09-May-05 17:12:12
