To have wanted to say 'grow up' to this woman

Me and DD went to this group today, went to sit in this chair in a circle of chairs only to realise this other woman had been sitting there first. Fair enough. There were plenty of other chairs so I said to her sorry I didn't realise and I'll move and not sarcastically I didn't have a problem with it. She said huffily I'll get another chair and disappeared. I moved to the next chair along and her friend she was with put a book on this chair. Her friend reappeared and said very loudly 'oh good you have stopped anyone sitting there' while looking pointedly at me. It just pissed me off, I didn't say anything wasn't worth it. I know I'm moaning but sometimes the adults are worse than the kids.

Also, next time fart loudly and say "ooh I am sorry pelvic floor not what it used to be" and waft them towards her.

**drink cocktail of lemon juice and bicarb first

Bicarb first, then lemon juice half hour later. With a baked bean chaser.

It was rhyme time at the library

Mynewmoniker Thu 09-May-13 21:28:44

You should have volunteered a rhyme like...

'There was a little girl
who had a little curl
right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good she was very, very good
but when she was bad she had a tantrum over a chair that she didn't even own!

and glared at her grin

I went to sit down on a chair
Without knowing your arse had been there.
I was nice and polite,
but you wanted a fight.
You want a piece of me at rhyme time?
Come ahead, I'm in my prime.

With apologies to William Hughes Mearns

As I was going for a chair
I met a woman who wasn't there
She wasn't there again today
I how i wish she'd piss off go away

"Also, next time fart loudly and say "ooh I am sorry pelvic floor not what it used to be" and waft them towards her."

This really made me grin

I feel your pain OP. I am just learning baby group madness. This week i went to a group and 7.5mo ds sat next to an older baby (he crawled over and sat there nicely), he looked at the toy this other baby was playing with and the mother shouted NO in ds's face. I looked like hmm at her and she said, 'i was just pre-empting him going for the toy' umm okay then.

i have vowed that if that happens again, i'm going to tell the person to fuck off. i suggest you do the same!

When all the Mums were sitting and the cow was very mean
Up jumped the nutcase and this is what she said
I'm a dingle dangle nutcase with a problematic tude'
I can shake my head like this and I can be very rude...

LittleMissLucy Thu 09-May-13 22:00:22

The woman sounds like an arse. Can you chalk it up to mommy-fatigue?

HandMini Thu 09-May-13 22:04:54

Twinkle twinkle you're a twat
I wonder how you got like that

Up above, your ego's there
Getting arsey about a chair

Twinkle twinkle you're a freak
Please don't come to this group next week

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Thu 09-May-13 22:06:06

Mini grin "Come on everyone! All point at the twat!"

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Thu 09-May-13 22:07:15

Old Mrs Moany had a chair...Eei Eei Oh! And on that chair the OP sat...Eei Eei oh! With a huff huff here and a tut tut there...here a huff there a huff...

Kastor is this rhyme time in a Surrey town beginning with E? If so, you may have seen my DD there with the nanny. I'm sure it wasn't her though!

MrsOakenshield Thu 09-May-13 22:11:56

oh god, i've been to groups like this, it's like being back at school where X absolutely has to sit next to Y or the world will fall in because they're so socially inept. You know that they will yak all through the group so that the leader ends up having to shriek, not over the toddlers singing and bashing their triangles, but the parents.

comelywenchlywoo Thu 09-May-13 22:12:39

hand I want to come to your rhyme time! grin

HandMini Thu 09-May-13 22:12:55

Zoom zoom zoom, you're nuts about a chair
Zoom zoom zoom, I just don't fucking care
5...4...3...2...1...twaaaaat.

Kasterborous Thu 09-May-13 22:15:01

No it wasn't in Surrey. These rhymes on here are making me grin, especially the one to I'm a dingle dangle scarecrow because we sang that one today. Wasn't mummy fatigue her DC looked older than my 14 month old DD.

HandMini Thu 09-May-13 22:16:00

Wind the woman up
Wind the woman up
Twat twat
Nob non nob

Give her chair back again
Give her chair back again
Fool fool
Arse arse arse

Point to the ceiling, point to the floor
Point to the window but don't whatever you do point at anyone else's chair you bitch

Clap your hands together one two three
I'll sit where I like, don't fuck with meeeee

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Thu 09-May-13 22:16:18
