This thread has made me laugh so much I have tears in my eyes!!
Its so totally ME.
I despise having the kids friends over, they always ask to do things they know full well they aren't allowed to do
I hate housework, I suck at it, right now there is a pile of washing on the couch that I have absolutely no intention of folding anytime soon. Nor do I care that the cat is sleeping in it
Here's a confession... sometimes when I poo, Im in there a while because of IBS...if someone dares to come to the door and I'm in a bad mood, I'll fling the door open and say "I'm taking a damn sh1t, wanna smell?!" Its has greatly reduced my toilet disturbances
I've also flung toys out the car window when the kids are fighting about it in the back seat and I can't take it anymore The reaction is priceless!
Once I threw DS's yu-gi-oh cards in the fire I bought him fake ones by accident (I had no idea!) and he threw them at my feet and said something that peed me off (can't remember now!) So I picked them up and turfed them into the blazing fireplace. 4 years and he hasn't complained again about any gift.
I was at my total wits end one day, so I sat down on the computer and printed up several "signs" and stuck them all over the house!
EGs "DS, Put the seat up when you pee" and stuck it on the loo.
Just above the button "Please FLUSH me, no one wants to see what the last person left behind"
On the kitchen bench "This is NOT a dumping zone, shoes, school bags, dance gear and basketballs belong in bedrooms"
In the hallway (where DH dumps his shoes) "Shoes don't live here...EVER. Put them in the bedroom (That door half a meter to your right"
Next to the bin "Rubbish goes HERE. Please push flap and deposit."
I was SO mad that day!

RunningWithScissors- OMG! How hilarious!! I love the signs thing, I did that once with post its when DH kept doing stupid things. I got a big pad of them and jotted everything down that annoyed me like "socks don't go here" and "pick up the shower mat" and put them in the spots they needed to go. At the end of the day he walks in to a sea of fluoro yellow hahaah.

hi maximum22, the internet is a distraction for sure, but I think it can be useful for the information you can share. We had only the older generation or fellow young mums who were going through the same situations, but then only among those people who you actually knew IRL, and you could ring someone on the landline phones if that was convienient. Now you can access the world and share so many different ideas in about one hour, the internet is good for that. I have learnt heaps, and I hope I have helped some. Marie.
