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 don't understand national curriculum levels- is level 5 OK in year 3?"= "I have been googling national curriculum levels since child was in Reception and could write a PhD thesis on the subject"


<also secretly panicking. Dc1 starts reception in Sep and I know nothing. Should I be Googling??!>

hmm = I dont believe you.
hmm = You are a troll.
hmm = You are a twat.
hmm = I am a twat.
hmm = Ive just given you the definitive answer, but you arent listening.

AIBU to wonder why people bother having children if they do not want to look after them?
AIBU to wonder what the bloody hell SAHMs do all day and why they think it's such a hard job
= I am quite sure I have made the wrong decision, I am miserable so I will make myself feel better by criticizing everyone else's choice and starting a row.

whoops. I've always used it thinking it means my honest opinion.

oh dear. I have accidentally sounded like a cow.

unmumsnetty hugs - I am so much nicer than most of the vicious cunts on here but I like to think I am too edgy for Netmums

And according to MN Acronyms it means...

hope this helps

I thought HTH means Hate To Help?

TheDoctrineOfSnatch Fri 12-Apr-13 00:02:19

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

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

Nah, it's for Humble, Hecs.

HTH smile

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

I thought the H was for honest, not humble.

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.

hmm = liar! Liar! Pants on fire!

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

Trills Fri 05-Apr-13 10:00:11


my opinion is not humble at all

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

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

Dammit ^ " Just words on a screen"

ZacharyQuack Fri 05-Apr-13 07:17:36

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

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.

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

DeepRedBetty Fri 05-Apr-13 00:17:37

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...>

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.

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
