This has just popped up on her facebook having been shared by an old school friend.

Can MNers come up with a suitable response?

I love that! Stealing it!

LauraMipsum · 03/07/2019 16:11

It’s difficult to be witty in response to something quite that unfunny.

MyGastIsFlabbered · 03/07/2019 16:12

Oh I saw that and rolled my eyes. I couldn't even be bothered to think of a riposte

Oldraver · 03/07/2019 16:14

That reminds me of when I decided to stay over in Brum on a Sunday night after clubbing...DS would phone to ask if I was coming home that night and I would feel guilty saying no.

Apparently it was my DB getting him to ask, as it meant they could leave th dishes and general cleaning for another night

BuzzShitbagBobbly · 03/07/2019 16:18

Act all innocent and "I don't get it?"

Make them really explain it, down the last sexist stereotype.

And then ask, "oh. Right. Is that what you call 'banter' then?"

SoupDragon · 03/07/2019 16:24

Is it meant to show how pathetic men are that they can't cope without a female partner?

Rainbowknickers · 03/07/2019 16:49

My son has just put this up on his fb
And I can’t believe I brought him up to be this unfunny and sexist
It’s all every well calling it ‘banter’ it’s not-it’s just another way to keep women in their place

Katinski · 03/07/2019 18:28

Love it,love it,love itGrinGrinGrin

And they’re more successful than you will ever be, so they can kick your scummy, misogynist arse out, and afford a cleaner.

JacquesHammer · 03/07/2019 18:48

Wow. Do adults actually find this funny?

People really are getting stupider aren’t they?

TheOnlyLivingBoyInNewCross · 03/07/2019 18:49

Yes, just ask whoever posted it to explain it.

TheOnlyLivingBoyInNewCross · 03/07/2019 18:52

Or post underneath:

Yes, they are, so you'd better pull your fucking finger out and get the dishes done before they kick your lazy cocklodging arse out.

P1nkHeartLovesCake · 03/07/2019 18:52

Don’t they know dish washers exist I can’t even remember the last time I hand washed

Finfintytint · 03/07/2019 18:52

Yes, so called adults want to steal it, love it, etc.
There’s a special kind of stupid still alive and well on the internet.

Sagradafamiliar · 03/07/2019 18:52

Does it mean, 'don't worry, she's coming home to wash your dishes'? Who are 'they'? It doesn't even make fucking sense. I hope the PPs who think it's funny are being ironic.

Shockers · 03/07/2019 18:55

@Sagradafamiliar- the England women’s football team are coming home.

Yes, it really is that unfunny.

SummerHouse · 03/07/2019 18:56

"I don't think these driven, ambitious, elite sports women would be with someone who can't wash a plate."

Sagradafamiliar · 03/07/2019 18:57

Oh, I thought it must've referred to something I'd missed. How pathetic!

DandyLyon · 03/07/2019 18:57

"I'm assuming this is a joke at your mums expense as it's in no way believable you'd have a girlfriend'

DandyLyon · 03/07/2019 18:58

Oh I didn't get the football reference either!

PoptartPoptart · 03/07/2019 19:17

Oh, yes of course, because a pre requisite of being able to do the washing up is that you have a vagina. How silly of me not to realise that.

dollyandshirl · 03/07/2019 19:39

@PoptartPoptart actually I use my tits to do the dishes. Doesn't everyone?

although they don't like to be called tits, they prefer me to call them 'boyfriends'.

Gatekeeper · 03/07/2019 19:45

Grin @dollyandshirl

MotherOfTheNoise · 03/07/2019 19:59

@dollyandshirl you're my hero 😂

gingerandsmall · 03/07/2019 21:58

OP's daughter here. Some great responses - I'll post one and let you know how it's received
