I got annoyed yesterday because a woman jumped the queu for the loo because "little Alfie is potty training". Put a nappy on him then ffs when you go out.

Aaaah

The sound of a tax lawyer's ovaries first thing on a Monday morning.

Marvellous.

How do you know 'she' is a woman, Clergs? She may identify as a man, or neither.

So presumptuous.

Apology acknowledged, micro-aggression neutralised.

It is parents ignoring children whilst looking at their phone at bus stops which is the nasty sight. Nothing stirs the heart as much for most of us as a parent talking to and looking at the child. Famous artists have painted that for centuries as it is such a special lovely thing to see. The adoration of the parent for the baby - love. It makes us who we are.

Judy, Alfie should have been allowed to kittens himself taught him time planning for the future and British queuing protocols.

Tbf I've just witnessed a grown man cooing inanely at the contents of his buggy for the past 5 minutes.

I have now defected to team Clergs on this one.

Ofc I do don't be ridic clergs. They're boring and annoying sometimes just like everyone.

I had glasses at 2 and eye surgery at 3. The hooligans don't seem to be myopic so far. I looked really cute tho.

Just, you know, don't have any if you're so convinced it would be awful. If you think it would be awful in truth it probably would be. You make your own reality.

It's generally great. There are bits that are hard but the bits that aren't a worth it. During the day ours is a delight and she is 9 months.

You're right about the woman thing though. Ours is currently going through a phase of not going down at all for me, and only for Mrs G. Which in some respects is fine, I can watch some sport or something while it's all going on, but you can't help feeling a bit hurt.

Saoirse99 - there is a lot of 'hate' and 'rage' in your postings on here. Chill.

Well yes there have been times like that too. The thing about babies is that they are tricky buggers, and once you think you have got them sorted, they change everything up again to keep you on your toes.

Yes but things have changed.

It is worth noting as well that the longer you spend "free", the less friends you have to be free with and then you end up like LA.

"Long for" is a bit strong.

I like how things are now. They are very different, but I'm not sorry they are.

I spent a fair amount of my weekend listening to T3 laughing at his own farts
