who try to tell you how to post?

Public board, folks! So long as it's not personally insulting it goes.

You are not in charge of how the thread evolves, even as on OP.

Don't like it?

Find a place that's more heavily moderated.

'Nuff said.

I can't believe you posted that, EIS. You really shouldn't have done.

Want a napkin Expat???


LilyLoo · 16/05/2007 14:09

Wholeheartedly agree expat! Especially the ones where they post 'stop' fgs! and then they repeat it until they realise they aren't in charge.


Fimbo · 16/05/2007 14:10

Yes, although it must have taken a lot for you to be wound up Expat!

Kathyis6incheshigh · 16/05/2007 14:10

Ta for posting that.


NoodleStroodle · 16/05/2007 14:10

I am going to report this thread


expatinscotland · 16/05/2007 14:10

Now, hunker, that's not what this is about. So you need to ease up on the sniggering and snurking, too.

I'd like a serviette with my tea tonight.

We'll be dining in the lounge on the settee in front of the telly.

ScottishThistle · 16/05/2007 14:13

I'd rather dine in the living room!

After the kids after played in the back yard?


foxinsocks · 16/05/2007 14:14

we had a child who came round for tea who became irate with ds (he was being VERY irritating to be fair) and said to him

'I don't like you because you have no table manners AND you don't even have napkins'

ds is only 5 so this went over his head but I laughed and laughed for ages and made sure I told her parents who were suitably mortified (but no doubt have marked my card as 'common as muck').


mm22bys · 16/05/2007 14:15

Sorry, forgot the most obvious one from someone from Australia...

after the kids after played SOCCER in the backyard?


mm22bys · 16/05/2007 14:16

Well, my sister's step-daughter said to me:

(DS's name) might look cute, but once you get to know him he's not really....

and about my second DS (5 months)

Is (DS2's name) part of the family?


MoodyMa · 16/05/2007 14:23
