To be bl**dy annoyed that some dear sweet (not) person has given my DM my mobile number without asking me!

I really have a pain in the neck mother, in fact TBH I really do not like her. I have no time for her as she has no time for me or my DDs. My brother on the other hand gets all the help attention that he needs - whether he wants it or not!

I'm sorry to say she is a drinker and when she drinks she always telephones me. The telephone conversations are either her being very giggly or she is down right nasty.

I asked my MIl for a caller display phone for my birthday so I could see who was ringing - this has been an absolute godsend - well and truly! Because then I could decide whether to answer the phone.

I have never given her my mobile number because I don't want her on my back 24/7. Somehow someone has given her my mobile telephone number and I am really mad!
I know it seems daft as its my mother, but I really cant stand talking to her - big time!
I have just asked my DB and he hasn't given it to her, so now I am left pondering who would/could give it to her!

Am I being unreasonable as I honestly do not want her ringing me when I'm out and about!

I think I must be a really horrid daughter, sad thing is I would be mortified if my DDs behaved like this to me!

No I don't think you're being unreasonable - you clearly don't have an easy relationship with her so why shouldnt you put some distance on when you do/don't talk to her (Esp if she has been drinking).

Doesnt your mobile have caller ID - you can screen your calls then I assume?

And I quite like my parents but I screen calls if just not in the mood for it.

It was her mobile number that came up, I just didn't register to it. She doesn't have a land line as several years ago she refused to pay the bill.

Guess I am really cross for not recognizing her number!

Bet it was my other brother, the one who lives out of the country! But why would he give her my mobile number!

Also I do not ringing mobile numbers, to me a mobile phone is for emergencies, I get quite frustrated for someone to ring me on my mobile just for a chat! Also when I need to ring her which isn't very often (although I have free mobile calls) I will only ring her from my land line!

Maybe she was too drunk to notice that she was ringing me on my mobile!

Funny thing is - she has never asked for my mobile number!

I am the same about never using it, I hate them! Emergency, yes. Expensive chatting and random 'mother' calls, no!

I hope you figure it out. You might have to ask her though if you want to know who told her..

I am just so wound up now, 2 and a half minutes I was on the phone to her!

Don't really want to ask her and remind her that she has got my number! IYSWIM

Can you change your phone or get the number blocked.


pinkbubble · 29/11/2007 21:39

Lizzie that was my first question to DH, can we change the number! DH was not impressed! Have no idea how to block numbers!

Most mobiles will let you bar a telephone number.

YOu can normally do this on the hand set. But if not just call your provider and ask them to bar the number.

Think I will wait and see if she rings again! Then I will!
