I haven't read the whole thread I am so important I don't care if this has been said fifty times already, it's not been said until I've said it.

AIBU? give me some sympathy and agree with me

I don't mean any offence but... I am a twat

I'm not being rude but... I am a twat

There must be more. Snark away...

I feel sorry for your children = I haven't developed my debating skills beyond the infant playground and I'm a bit of a shit

LadyBeagleEyes Thu 04-Apr-13 23:45:24

I do 'literally unbelievable' too K8.

You are clearly a snarky pedant too very wise LBE grin

I know Mary. Maybe it's just a case of overexposure to AIBU and Relationships. All those selfish and lazy partners, and interfering MILs and inconsiderate family/friends/strangers. Everyone's just so bloody EN-titled out there!

I do lots of smilies/emoticons.

It would appear that if you do them lots = you are a twat.

I shall become less twattish and stop doing them. If I remember.

LadyBeagleEyes Fri 05-Apr-13 00:02:58

grin winksmileconfused MrsVamos
I share your twattishness.

MrsVamos Fri 05-Apr-13 00:06:50

So is it acceptable or not ? I'm confused. <whines>

Maryz Fri 05-Apr-13 00:08:28

I do that too, MrsV.

I do it to try to avoid looking to serious, but probably do end up looking like a twat. Like everyone else grin

MrsVamos Fri 05-Apr-13 00:10:01

grin Maryz.

I have to get a notebook for all the acceptable nn's, and I shall have to get another one to take note of who likes emoticons and who doesn't.

Or carry on being twattish.

Yep, that's easier.

Why does it all kick off when I've got far too much RL to handle to spare more than five mins for MN? <goes to bed sulking a bit...>

Maryz Fri 05-Apr-13 00:20:31

Your real problem comes about when you have too much Mumsnet stuff to handle and can only spare 5 minutes for RL, though, Betty grin

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Fri 05-Apr-13 06:41:40

blush I do a few of these. I may be wrong precisely because I don't want to come across as an arrogant person who thinks they're always right! But I'm lazy cos I'm aware that what I've just posted makes me really really idle! grin and as for emoticons. Oh dear.

Words on a screen = I'm about to say something offensive, but if you get offended you're a twat.

ZacharyQuack Fri 05-Apr-13 07:19:05

Dammit ^ " Just words on a screen"

NorthernLurker Fri 05-Apr-13 07:57:36

Posting for traffic = Look, I've tried using the niche slot for this issue and all I get is three answers, one posted on the wrong thread, one saying 'no experience but bumping for you' and one from the obsessive who haunts this topic and whose advice I've already read 20 times. So I'm posting here in AIBU/CHAT because I might actually get an answer that will help plus it feeds my ego to get 50 replies

my opinion is not humble at all

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Fri 05-Apr-13 10:17:00

Just spat tea/coffee all over my screen/keyboard from half a dozen different posters - something was mildly amusing but I want everyone to like me so I'm jumping on the bandwagon, even if I didn't truly find the post all that funny

K8Middleton Fri 05-Apr-13 10:58:29

hmm = liar! Liar! Pants on fire!

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Sat 06-Apr-13 14:31:46

smile = I've just been a right cow but if I smile at the end of it, you aren't allowed to call me on it.

"This thread is pointless" = "I'm a great big stupid twat."

This is a chatroom not the bloody UN. 99% of chatter is not of great importance.

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Sat 06-Apr-13 14:32:20

I thought the H was for honest, not humble.

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Fri 12-Apr-13 00:00:33

Nah, it's for Humble, Hecs.

HTH smile

<hands OP tinhat> = I have been here forever and delight in newbies being twats - means they'll fit right in.
