    I flinch when people sit on my tables/benches.

    It's always been such a big no-no where I'm from, to the point where we'd be whacked for doing it.

    I've had a 8mo baby and his 3yo brother dropped off at my kids party. The kid proceeded to spit on people, hit kids and abuse the adults, while his brother kept climbing on things and hurting himself. All my rage.

    I just had to reply to this... a friend changed her daughter's nappy on another friend's dining room table, and actually left a smidgen of poo on her table cloth. GROSSSSSSS.

    Do you have any idea how dirty the bottom of your handbag is?!
    So where exactly would I be expected to put my handbag if I ever came to your place? The floor where children can get into it? ***not having a go, just really curious- I've never heard this before***

    My handbag lives on my bench/table. But then again so do shoes and other things that probably shouldn't lol

    I feel like this thread is in an alternate universe. I have never in my life met someone who worries about the germs on handbags. For really and truly?! But... If I walk in carrying my bag, those germs are on my hands. I might even use them to touch your children

    I have a buffet that's handy for such things, or I will often offer to put handbags somewhere safe. Anywhere I'm not preparing or serving food really

    ETA: Are other people seriously not aware of this? Here you go:

    You're Maori??? People wouldn't dare do half the stuff mentioned in this thread at my house, cause I would put them in their place. As an adult I still think about how my Nan would slap me if I even thought about washing my hands in the kitchen sink :/

    I had a "friend" invite me to her house and then ditch me with her kids to do other stuff. I would wind up bathing her kids and getting them to bed while she drank wine and read magazines. I have trouble with saying "no".
