Saw 2 today. And one of them was in Earls Court so she doesn't count.
anyway, are you get broody, JJ?
She had stood there slowly watching the guy scan everything, then she stood for ages finger cash in her purse, the slowly began to pack while the rest of the queue waited for her.
So I was being irritated and subtly arsey. Not that subtly though because the woman one till across started giving me filthy looks. And then I realised the African woman was pregnant, not just fat.
On the train recently, a girl asked a bloke to give up his seat citing her apparent pregnancy although she looked very unpregnant. What would you do in a situation like that?
And if she doesn't start bleeding instantly, she was bluffing.
but she's not showing yet - she's only 8 weeks.
such a long long way to go yet.
how is she doing? sicky or blooming?
although not as bad as I expected. It's mostly dry retching. She's gone off puddings, which she is most upset about.
having a cigarette break.
the summer, aren't they?
but you can often date your conception to a special date, like one of your parent's birthdays, anniversaries etc . . .
just feel a bit elated?
its new, first time mothers. God, theyre the most smug and annoying bunch ever.
I hate the way they love their children so much, the stupid bitches!
put it on YouTube!
I was in the park yesterday, and i sat down on a bench and started reading a book. All was going well, until a woman parked her £300 buggy behind me, and took her kid out of and placed it carefully on the ground.
Then she started talking to it, every 3rd syllable with a upward inflection reaching into the supersonic frequencies. She even said "Look at that! Thats a tree! One day youll be as tall as that!"
So not only bloody annoying, but filthy LIARS too.
is that accurate?
I cant be bothered thinking of a comeback to that.
Except: You suck.
She really had the most annoying voice in the world. Imagine Miss Hoolie from Balamory, but 10x more patronising and 100x more whiny.
Plus, she saw I was reading, saw that I was irritated by her, and continued. Plus, she was loud as hell, and it might just have been the way she normally was, but she seemed to be REALLY pleased that everyone knew she was being so "fun" with her kid; lying on the ground a with it all "earth motherly" like; probably feeding it only organic and being really smug about it.
They all act as though their kid is a little miracle.
is concerned, their child IS a 'little miracle'. i'm sure your mum and dad felt the same, luckily for you.
it's pretty fucking difficult looking after a tiny defenceless human being who depends on you for everything 24 hours a day, but can't tell you what they want or need and doesn't come with any instructions so you can work it out.
far from feeling smug, in my experience new mothers feel overwhelmed by the responsibility, as well as wracked with guilt that they might not be doing the right thing. add to that sleep deprivation on a scale you cannot even imagine - think they feel smug? get a grip, and shut the fuck up about it until you've grown up and you know what you're talking about.
My dad's girlfriend had a kid about a year ago, and i've been living with it. Im not basing all this on a woman I saw in the park.
And yes, the feel smug. The ones i know/see anyway.
so you've generalised from TWO examples! that's a fantastic basis for your argument!
as you have no direct experience of your own on which to base your assumptions about how new mothers actually FEEL, you can use my experiences, and the experiences of every new mother i've ever met. which are detailed above.
incidentally don't you think you're a bit old for sibling rivalry?
a bit harsh
I hate massively biased over-cynical hate extracted from potentially harmless situations. And it could be very obiously just a mother taking pleasure from her life, misinterpreted by an overly judgemental twat, to be fair.
Do you know one? She has 45 minutes to waddle into Fopp so I can observe it.
selfish bitches, round them up and fucking shoot them in the head I say. what we need more of is more self obsessed teenagers who can't handle the fact that there's other people in the world. That's how you act when youre 2 years old.
And if you have a car, mow the bitches down and take time out to piss on them whilst whistling The Sweater Song by Weezer, dude.
A lot more than normal. They were all quite big, but not ready to pop, which makes me think that Christmas has something to do with it...
_yes -you are a silly little man. Think ofother people instead of yourself and you r selfish hateful little life.
I dont really care if theyre smug, i just think they are. Its annoying, but hey, i can live with that.
In the meantime, fuck off. At the risk of sounding like a jerry springer contestant, "you don't know me".
What are you accusing me of, making judgements?
I'm really shocked by the insensitive nature of half of this board.
'Yes' is an absolute 'like duh why should i like give a shit' type of person that makes me glad no one lives forever. I hope to God no one ever has to rely on you.
Nothing personal of course. Tit.
He just has to accept his opinions might be challenged on occasion.
why so eggy?
Or just simply fucking stupid?
What's the jackpot prize then for being the biggest cunt on dis??????
is that what you're aiming for?
Rose Kitten implied i was a cunt, nay, one of the biggest cunts on here. For what? suggesting that Prole might have been overly harsh in his dismissal of yes_? Dreadfully sorry for taking objection to that!
Not you individually. I stand corrected on that one.
I make a throwaway comment on some woman i saw in the park, and now all this.
and its boring. I expect to be 'up on the carpet' about anything yack offensively on about and so should he- anyway he's welcome to his opinion.
And yeah, if you're allowed "Lunch with prole", im allowed this.
You just patronised me, insulted me and acted like a git, basically.
and act like a git towards new mothers or pregnant women?????
I wasn't being completely serious. In my experience, mothers and pregnant women are smug.
But please, its not as if im making a judgement on some minority group. So far it looks like its me VS 50% of the population.
i never claimed not to be acting like that, just that what prole said was incorrect, so shut it.
youre quite a twat. Lunch with Prole is a myriad of subjects. your subject is something else
he said some pretty silly stuff about mothers and babies, but i assumed he was being ironic. or something. anyway it's not as though noone's ever heard the whole "mums are so smug lol" joke before.
but that's my opinion and not set in flipping stone
I just said they were smug and annoying, not "I genuinly believe there should be a genocide of all women capable of giving birth".
can I just say, im not 100% serious about this, at all, and at no point have I ever said anything completely out of order.
I.e It's being implied that I want to murder all new mothers or something. Which is just stupid.
Plus, ive been abused by a guy almost twice my age, which is funny.
yes_ is never being 100% serious. ever.
especially when he goes off on angry rants.
why does age ever matter once youre old enough to have debate. PLease spend your life working in a shop hating people.
Oh god im almost twice your age I must be so out of touch.
The point is, for all your patronising, you don't seem to have much maturity to base it on, having insulted me personally many times, and very rarely actually referring to what I was talking about.
why do I think you're listening to 'Killing on the Name Of'?
Think what you like really its not important, just take into account other people's feelings. Not mine I don't care a tinker's cuss what you think of me.
OMG how patronising of me.
I said that you're in no position to patronise me by your displays of immaturity, and you just say you don't care what I think of you? Really, are you drunk?
Needs to be up on your standup routine, I thinketh.
And I still don't get what the hell all this hoohah is about. I think you're all drunk.
This is kind of hilarious.
Here's a summary -
Me: I find new mothers smug and annoying
Prole: Fuck off you twat
Me: What'd I say?
Prole: you silly little boy. I am the king!
Puppy galore: *insert only ACTUAL argument against my opinion, followed by a patronising and presumptuous comment
Me: Go away
Rose kitten: WON'T SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN!? YOU'RE ALL DEVILS I SAY! DEVILS!
Prole: *misses the point*
kill yourselves everyone!
SERIOUSLY, WHAT THE FUCK? WHY IS PROLE BERATING YES_? WHY IS ROSE ANGRY?
not on my side!
Rose somehow see's people that dont think of pregnancy - something which, bear in mind, people have been coping with for quite a few years now - as a miracle and sacred, as hateful.
just fancied winding you up RESULT!
just getting bored =how teenage!
Im a teenager and I was bored half an hour ago. "RESULT"!
opinion, mothers and pregnant women are smug'
fucking hell! what a statement!! give him a pulitzer and quick!!
that was almost as good as that other fucking nerd the other week saying 'nurses irritate me'
what a pile of fucking wank!!
This thread is a shining example of postmodernism. And it's fucking funny.
people make comments like yes_'s one about every 10 mins on here, i thought people were immune to it by now. I dont think it was anything to take offence over.
prole is with a woman who is pregnant/has just given birth, and so he thought yes_'s comments, said semi-jokingly, about new mothers being smug and annoying really personally.
if prole doesn't in fact know a pregnant lady, then he is just massively over-sensitive.
relation to the subject, but i think he took it a little too personally. Its like me getting really upset about someone saying something bad about scottish people like theyre all drunks or something. I think it was a bit of an over reaction
SEE YOU INGLISH ETC
My view was that most of them werent "just doing their job".
But that's a different matter.
(that may, or may not be of any relevance)
I don't think you'd have the "smug" thing or "racked up with guilt" 100 years ago. This child-centred thing has only emerged recently, and I don't think you'd have parents like this in the past.
Actually, that's not relevant at all. I just wanted to put my AS Sociology SKILLZ into action.
I'd agree -Orwell also notes in '....Wigan Pier' that "in the middle class home it is the baby who is head of the family"
we need marcofella threatening everyone on here instead
Oh, is he doing that already?
He got a little bit annoyed when I suggested that it would eventually happen.
i did like the twist tho
This thread on the other hand = MEGALOLS
was a film
this is the most ridiculous thing in the world
yes is goddamn hero
he's acting like a cunt.
"i hate poeple who act like THIS because all of their activities are obviously designed to expel THIS image"
most of these people are just living out their lives as they want to. this stupidly self-referential judgement about how every mother in the world is projecting smugness is just pretty vile really. most of these people don't even notice our young protaginist because they are too busy living life. his mposition is reduced to sitting around disapproving of everyone in a pointless, groundless, pathetically shortsighted way.
the fucking panacea of western civilization.
OOPS CAPS LOCK
just complaining about how yes_, though undoubtedly being unnecessarily vitriolic, might have a point if we all stepped away from this 'people can do what they want' shit.
i don't think mothers should talk to babies in patronising high voices. i think they should talk to them as if they could understand, and tell them useful things. i don't think that parents should regard themselves as owning their children, either, which is where a lot of the smugness comes from. they don't own them. they are their own people, and everyone has responsibility towards them. i also think people have children when they aren't ready for it and for reasons that aren't good enough.
i don't think yes_ was getting at much of this with his comments necessarily, but it irks me to see him attacked so ineptly. it's not just about what they want, it's about the children and society as well.
everyone has their gripes. Mine is mothers acting smugly. You can deal with it, right? As Ive said, im not 100% serious, and arnt that bothered.
So really, get over it.
poor man's Maddox
