At least once in the last few years that must have been right . Mumsnet must have had a yodeling unicyclist. They can’t all have been crochet?

I truly hate the thing mentioned in the op. But I also hate the constant justification in people’s posts. Everyone I follow on Instagram needs to tell me how much they love their child if they have the slightest whinge about them. Like you can moan about someone and still love them.

For someone reason people titling posts with 'Is/does anyone else...' irrationally annoys me. 'Is anyone else 12 weeks pregnant?' 'Does anyone else like Nutella?'. No, no, it's just you.

It used to be ‘does anyone else have the bug that’s going around’

I guess that’s consigned to the bin for a while

It’s the “we” thing for me. Sets my teeth on edge.

What do “we” think of culottes. When are “ we” sending our kids back to school.

There is no “we” . Mumsnet is not some homogeneous mass. It is not a hive mind, it is made up of millions of individuals.

"Can I really wear a bikini?" posted with a picture by a lovely slim person who looks amazing in a bikini.

What they really mean is "everyone say nice things about me because secretly I know I look good." Grin

The thing that irritates me more is the alleged surprise at people doing things that I cannot believe they are ignorant of.

'Do people really plan their day around a baby's naps?' 'Do people really eat a whole pizza by themselves?' Etc etc. I find it comes with an air of superiority.

When having a moan about family the pp says "bedroom constantly messy (I'm looking at you DD2)" or worse, I'm looking at you DD2

DD2 isn't reading the post and no other pp knows DD2 for that to have any comedic effect

"Are we the only family that doesn't eat dessert?"

I always want to reply that dessert is one of the four food groups along with beer, pizza and crisps.

But that would be inaccurate. The fourth food group is ice cream.
