Tell Sony Pictures your best ‘Angry Bird Moment’ - win a £300 voucher! NOW CLOSED(232 Posts)
MNHQ have commented on this thread.
In the run-up to the release of ‘The Angry Birds Movie’, from Sony Pictures, we are very excited to announce a new addition to the range of emoticons on Mumsnet – The Angry Bird!
The Angry Birds Movie Synopsis:
In the 3D animated comedy, The Angry Birds Movie, we'll finally find out why the birds are so angry. The movie takes us to an island populated entirely – or almost entirely- by happy, flightless birds. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We're the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This Is the End, Eastbound and Down) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to this trio of unlikely outcasts to work out what the pigs are up to.
You can read more about the film here.
To celebrate, Sony Pictures want to hear your best ‘Angry Bird Moments’. So do share them here - whether it be your biggest pet peeve, a moment that got your feathers well and truly ruffled, or something that made you want to break everything in the room, in true Angry Birds style!
As an extra challenge, try to work the new emoticon into your post.
For example, my moment was …

This morning trying to leave for Nursery, baby tries to climb stairs 3 times, toddler stands on babies fingers, toddler spills juice over baby, baby cries. Baby does a poo, toddler want to go outside, toddler wants to watch cbeebies, toddler goes outside, toddler cries as I say not to go outside, baby wriggles and gets poo on my t-shirt, I go change, toddler takes off jacket, put toddlers jacket back on, can't find toddlers shoe, find toddlers shoe in bathroom, baby holding onto toilet seat, wipe babies hands, toddler has taken jacket off again, put jacket again, get to double buggy - have a puncture!!!
What brings out my ?
I am over 40 with have a professional "serious" job, don't call me "love!" It makes my hackles rise every time.....
Can I just clarify whether we are the Angry 'birds' in this scenario?
I can't imagine you'd have been foolish enough to come onto Mumsnet and refer to us a 'birds'...
'Angry bird'??! Erm, being referred to as a 'bird' will do it for me.
My moment comes on when I see things next to where they need to be, like dirty dishes on top of the dishwasher, dirty clothes next to the laundry basket etc. How hard is it to put it that tiny bit further where it actually goes!
My most recent has to be discovering that both my landine and mobile number were fubarred at the same time. I did an awful lot of very angry, freaked out pacing (and couldn't play Angry Birds Fight )
I think the connection being made is with angriness rather than birdyness, as it were. Examples of things that induce the kind of rage that make you want to smash things to smithereens (with beak, or any other object close to hand).
We are looking for things that make you angry as loosechange has done above, I can totally relate <grr>
Please do post your moments of anger for your chance to win a £300 Love2Shop gift voucher.
Some of the political threads on here do it for me....posters you know who you are....
I was an yesterday when some snooty cow in a BMW (I'm sure some BMW drivers are lovely) swept into the parking space I was half in and refused to budge. I chose to take the high road (all the way to another space) as I had the DDs in the car, even though they said I should have gone back and keyed it. I kind of wish I had...
My moments are when you get called out for someone that's not your fault and you can't explain!
Eg - driving - other driver is at fault/wrong, has a rant as they drive past and you're all like 'but, but...'
Lots of things make me and ranty for instance.
You let another driver pass and they either can't be arsed to thank you or even worse do the index finger thanks. This makes me want to raise my middle digit in a childish response.
When supermarket shopping those who just stop then take a step back to stare at the shelves, totally unaware of the chaos they've just caused.
When you are at a hotel and you call concierge to ask a quick question and get 'Good morning Mrs ... Welcome to at your service this is Tina speaking how may I help you today?' You can help me by just answering with Good morning/afternoon/evening concierge and cut out all the other crap that takes far too long and means nothing!!
Another hotel one, you place the do not disturb sign on your door so instead of knocking someone calls you to say you had DND do you need anything.
Knobs who talk loudly on their phone whilst on the train 'Yah Hi Clive, this is Peter just wanted to touch base with you re the plans for tomorrow's meetings, if you could have the finished proposal by end of play today we can then move forward with blah blah' piss off you annoying git.
Of course I am a joy to be around 24/7, utter perfection
My moment is when I come home to find nowhere to park near my house. Yet my neighbour who is fortunate enough to have a massive driveway with a double garage has parked his bloody car on the street! Why just why would you do that!? Selfish, selfish, selfish. One of these days I'm going to park in his bloody driveway! A very !
People walking, looking down (and getting in the way!) using their mobiles to text etc. Just watch where you are going!
People who stop to chat in shop entrances / lift openings / top of escalators - yes you are in the way!
People who don't indicate (and bad drivers in general!).
My angry bird moment:
dh rang and said he was picking up a special easy tea from m&s... ooh I thought, cannalloni, chips and onion rings... yummy yummy...
ah, says dh, I may pick up somehing different
Ok says I, it's up to you.
Dh knows my luff of creamy M&S meals.
He came home witha baguette, beetroot, quinoa & cauliflower mix and olives and chicken.
Out of all that I pointed out I only like chicken.
I am well f*cked off.
Dh is making chips.
When I go to bed, I leave the kitchen clean and tidy. I get really when I come down in the morning to find DH had tea and toast late at night; he hasn't used a plate so crumbs and sugar (apparently jar to mug is too difficult!) all over the counter!
Also when DC leave their shoes on the floor in front of the shoe cupboard
People who drive like utter idiots make me very cross! Especially bad parking like on double yellow lines right by a junction so it's downright dangerous. Makes me fume!
I have far too many Angry Bird moments.
when I accidentally open the door of teenage DDs room and then remember why I never go in there.
when DH takes my car out and then announces on his return that I'll need to put some petrol in.
when I hold the door open for people who don't say thank you as they walk through.
people who don't know the difference between 'lend' and 'borrow'.
I could probably fill a whole thread up on my own tbh
[angry bird] When somebody takes over both arm rests on a plane or in the cinema and I feel squished between two people.
[angry bird] Fighting the battle against grey hair
[angry bird] People who don't know how to queue
Where's the edit button when you need it? [angry bird emoticon fail]
when people are openly rude or show no signs of etiquette. Especially when shopping and Simeon barges me over!
I get all when:
People don't get their Oyster card out ready for the barrier.
People don't get their money out ready for the till.
Drivers who aren't in the right lane and then cut you up.
Walkers who stop dead in front of you for no apparent reason.
Dirty plates and cups appearing above the dishwasher / dirty clothes on top of the wash bin. Why oh why???
I so hope this emoticon is vetoed by mumsnetters...
