    lol @ dinner in the shed till the bike goes.
    Can see the wife going ‘it’s me or the bike’ guy hugs bike to his chest ‘bye then’

    Out of interest, why are you reading Mumsnet?

    Keep the wife in the shed, and the bikes in the house = less nagging and more bikes = win ( + a little bit of being divorced ).

    FAIL

    It’ supposed to be a deterrent not an inducement.

    You know what they say about a man with a small shed.

    If he had a bigger ‘shed’ she wouldn’t complain about the bike.

    If she was any kind of decent wife she’d be on STW asking for shed advice, which would result in her building him one and leave it for him to find with a new 650b bike inside with a bow on.

    Hold on, mrs k has mumsnet login… 😈

    From the threads i’ve seen linked on here, mumsnet appears to be a circlejerk.

    Can’t see this going well for someone.

    Am I Being Unreasonable?

    To be fair, any forum on the internet ends up being a circlejerk if it is niche enough.

    That’s just the wonder of the internet.

    And now they’ve linked back to STW. Could be interesting

    What’s a circlejerk?
    Anyway, what kind of woman is she? Why aren’t her bikes in the dining room too?

    They talk a lot about DH, but not XC.

    YANBU to be honest.

    I wouldn’t want a bike in the house either. Call me a new age metro but I like the kitchen to smell of cooking, not oil, mud and dog egg.

    I like the kitchen to smell of oil and mud, not cooking. But that’s got nothing to do with bikes.

    To be fair, that’s pretty rich coming from a MTB forum. (-:

    Now I know where the obsession with acronyms comes from! That website is sodding unreadable.

    that would be a circle, where there is a lot of jerking going on, and no one holds their own.

    Damn you Graham, your ninja edit has given my follow-up post a slightly sinister twist.

    I believe Dx is “Darling… “, eg DH = Darling Husband, DD = Darling Daughter etc. Which would cause confusion here if DeadlyDarcy took to a spot of Downhill.

    YANBU?

    After more googleing it’s not a town in Saudi but “of course your right – your a woman”

    Bet she hasn’t found the bike shoes in the washing machine and the old chain in the dishwasher yet.

    “YANBU”:

    Thread title is “Am I being unreasonable?” – reply is “YANBU”, so presumably “You Are Not Being Unreasonable.”

    We have just bought a bike shed, Asgard is the maker and made of metal, is the only shed guaranteed not breakable in to and will cover DH for insurance for his 1k baby bike

    Out of interest, has anyone any experience of these things? A guaranteed break-in proof shed seems a bold claim to me, could be useful if it’s true.

    (1k bike… they’d have kittens if they saw what some people here spend on bikes…)

    Proof if ever it were needed that women are perfectly unaware of how bloody difficult it is to work what they are talking about.

    If he’s only got a cheap bike like that what’s he worried about?

    It worries me slightly that we’ve linked to them and they’ve linked to us.

    Do we still have those?

    Cranberry has made the definitive post

    They need an anacronym for “you are not being unresonable”?? How many times do they ask the question?? WHY DO THEY COMPLAIN SO MUCH!?

    Erm.. that is the topic of that particular sub-forum.

    We have “Chat”, they have an entire forum asking other women to confirm that they are being perfectly reasonable and that their partners are pigs if they are being reasonable or not.

    Wow that’s hard to read. Almost as bad as some of the marketing/corporate BS that seems to be flying around these days.

    Premier Icon binners

    If their favourite acronym is YANBU – I wonder if there are many times where the answer is YABU, yes?

    I suspect I already know the answer to that. Listening to that mad cow who runs Mumsnet, when she frequently pops up in the media, she seems like a cross between a tin-pot middle eastern dictator, and the leader of a religious cult! Bonkers! In a thoroughly unpleasant way

    We need Hora to gatecrash Mumsnet again. That was inspired! 😆
