Aibu to throw the table away

Someone help me before I explode the dining table chairs have fallen apart so I've thrown them away so it's safer for the children as they kept falling apart.
Now I'm stuck with the table and it's just being a cunt every time I look at it, and my dh doesn't want to part with it until we get another one.. but why am I keeping a table NO ONE can sit at. ITS JUST THERE being an eyesore. I feel sorry for it. It's upsetting me and just pissing me off wibu to just throw it out when he's out until we get a new one?.

We've got a fucking table that is a cunt. It's too big, although it folds down so it's slim but the (6) chairs are too big for it all to go in the front room so it's just in the corner and the chairs are on the top floor. We got it when we were in my house but now we're in dp's house it doesn't fit. I want to get rid of it and get a small two person table and 2 fold up chairs but it's South African oak and dp wants to keep it Hmm

I've been looking at small dining sets this afternoon. I'll see what IKEA have this week and then find somewhere else for this table to go hopefully. If not it can go in the junk room till we clear that out.

@Wolfiefan In hindsight we actually couldn't before, probably why it fell to pieces as it's older than my sister . But my grandma gave us some money a whilst ago and this is why I would like to actually buy something decent!

Well then sod it! Offer the table to a local firework display and order a gorgeous new one!

Surely if the chairs fell apart, then the table could suffer a similar disintegration (ahem). Can you not arrange a fatal accident?

Could you put the table outside in your driveway and hope that someone takes it for themselves or for firewood?

Put a FREE TO COLLECTOR sign on the top

Where will you dump the post, school bags and all manner of shite that gathers on tables? - get a piano.

Click on to freecycle and claim some chairs.


RB68 · 28/10/2018 17:04

sell the table with n chairs even if for 20 quid towards the next ones someone somewhere must need one

Yup, just smash it to smithereens when dh goes out.

I also have a cunty table, its fucking massive and the 4 year olds refuse to stop climbing on it/swinging on the chairs (despite one of them getting a split head from climbing on it) so the chairs live all over the house and need carried back at meal times. I fucking hate it and daily wish to smash it up.

Buy, borrow, steal two cheap benches for now. Only two c+nts to worry about there, and no chairs.


Littlechocola · 28/10/2018 17:08

Put a sheet over cunt table to make a den and tell it to stop being so cuntish.

Use garden chair until you can replace?


Jux · 28/10/2018 17:13

Buy some v cheap crappy (mismatched even) chairs to chivvy him into replacing the whole lot more quickly.

I feel your pain. I dismantled my table and put it under the bed. Grin That'll teach it to sit there and look awful. I'm not letting it out from under the bed until I'm good and ready. In the meantime, we're quite without a table and surviving quite nicely.
