    A girl I work with thinks it's ok to ask completely inappropriate questions that are really irrelevant to her and her own personal circumstances if she ends it with "if you don't mind me asking". E.g. "JR03, how much did your house cost, if you don't mind me asking?" (When she owns her own brand new home in a completely different area to me and we bought it almost 5 years ago) and "Joe, how much board do your boys pay, if you don't mind me asking?" (When she's in her mid 20s, living with her partner and is childless). Drives me CRAZYYYYY

    Cant stand people like that JR!

    Dear neighbours, could you at least try & be responsible & stop your dog barking all hours of the night? I know its possible cause you've done it before, I just think you're too lazy to maintain it.

    Df's boss- he is a shift worker, he needs rest. Asking him to come in for the 6th day (well, 3rd night after 3 days) in a row is irresponsible. I know you only ask him because you know he will never say no.
    We'll lose most of the money in tax anyway!

    Pretty annoyed at the GP. He decided that bub had tonsillitis and wanted to know if she's had amoxycillin before, yes she has and she was allergic. So then he was asking whether she's ok with penicillin. I said "I'm not sure because I don't know what penicillin is in" and he said "well what antibiotics has she had?" And I said "I don't know the names, this is the only GP she's ever been to so any antibiotics that have been prescribed to her should be on your system" and he laughed and said "I might try her on this one but she's likely to be allergic to it if she's allergic to amoxycillin". He must have seen the dumbfounded look on my face and decided to prescribe another one that she's not allergic to. Good idea GP!

    I was prescribed septrin as a baby and had an allergic reaction to it. I found out last year that they aren't supposed to give it to babies under a certain age (which I was).

    Doctors can be scary because we should he able to trust them to get it right!

    Had so much planned for today but ended up with my head in a bucket instead.
    Not fun.

    The GP told me yesterday that dummies could be contributing to my daughters reccurring throat and ear infections so they have to go. So I asked on Facebook whether any mums had advice of what they did to get rid of dummies. I got some great suggestions but one person who is childless, had no babies in her family and is a pre-school assistant (so not even a qualified daycare teacher) suggested taking it off her and letting her cry herself to sleep, rubbing chilli on it or cutting the end off. I told her I won't let her cry herself to sleep and gave her reasons why (dangerous levels of stress hormones, etc) so she said "look into controlled crying, it is really effective". Ummm thanks miss pre-school but clearly you don't know much about controlled crying because in my opinion, it's just as bad as letting her cry herself to sleep. It really bugs me that she will openly say things like "oh I know what it's like to have a child who won't sleep". No you don't - you have the help of other carers, you're not on your own. You get to go home and sleep when you want and uninterrupted. You have one day of bad sleeping with a child - a lot of mums are up to year 2, 3 or 4 of bad sleep. Don't pretend to understand the challenges of parenting when you have no idea!!


    Oh and someone else suggested that I send her to bed with a bottle of milk, to which she responded "great suggestion!" Is this the rubbish they're teaching pre-school teachers these days?! :-P

    She will learn when she has her own.
