If by "frau" you mean mincing prisspot bottom, then yes.
Without a doubt OP, Frau-cow heaven.

[quote]The problem is, I really really don't enjoy spending time with my bff's life partner. He is rude, obnoxious, and patronising, and particularly towards me. If I express an opinion he will enquire into the minutiae of it in a very superior manner, to the point where I feel like I'm undergoing the third degree and then make a dismissive remark. If I make a joke he will counter it with a serious explanation of how what I have just said is really not all that clever at all. I can't even tell if he is deliberately being rude or if he just is genuinely very very serious all the time.
I don't think I'll visit that site again.

Not even just to laugh at them?
Here's a great one. Frau wants to know why her kid can't come to a baby shower:
[quote]Maybe I just need a reality check. Maybe all the other baby showers I've been to were done wrong. Maybe I'm just hurt and bitter at having been excluded from the planning of a very important event for a very dear friend. Mostly, the whole thing has left me feeling a little teary and very hurt and I'm wondering if it would be very rude to ask someone for clarification on the title point.
Why can't my kid come?
I accept that she can't. I won't bring her. But is it very rude to ask why?
EtiquetteHell is one of my favourite guilty pleasures. They're so politely deranged.
My favourite recent thread was started by a woman asking if she could request a female vet because her female cat needed surgery on its mammary glands, and she didn't feel it was appropriate for a man to be seeing and touching a female cat's lady areas.
Get a load of this cunt. Her 23-year old nephew is coming to visit and she's terrified he'll flood her bathroom because he did it one time at his grandparents' house when he was a kid.
And most of the other posters agree with her.
How completely dull.
Maybe someone can start posting some funny EST questions.
I did some research and found a post that explained what bean dipping means:
miss-em ~ “bean -dipping” is changing the topic. If someone is talking inappropriately, gossiping, etc, you “bean -dip” to change the topic.
Ex: Party guest ” Jane heard that she jumped on top of him, ripped off his shirt and proceeded to…”
Party host ” Have you tried the bean dip? It’s simply scrumptious!”

Unfortunately, the webmistress on that site (eHell Dame) is a gigantic control-freak cunt and will ban people for the slightest infraction, so you can't even go over and have a little fun.
I think she went on a rampage about a year ago and banned about half the people on the board because they created a Facebook group that was not approved by her.
Why not bring her stiffies here to dl and have at 'em?

Is she the same one they had about five or six years ago? I don't know if others recall this, but DL went to war with EH. I can't recall specifics, but posters went over there and posted like they might at Free Republic -- trying to sound reasonable while making a point they disagree with. Polite debate? For about three minutes and then she got sick of it. Banned, banned, banned, banned. It was as though she were weilding an automatic weapon. I can't remember if she figured out that we were linking to the site from DL. Maybe. I wish I had a better memory. Sigh. Can anyone else fill in the gaps?
Yes, R15, she's the creator of the site, so it's the same one they've always had. I had no idea there was an Ehell/Datalounge war! I would've creamed my pants to have been in on that!!
R16, every generation romanticizes the wars of the prior generation. Always remember, war is hell.
r17 - LOL!
Oh, so she created the site. In that case she would know the traffic was coming from DL.
Unfortunately, that thread was lost when DL went from one version to another. A new war could be started. We would just need to be careful not to link from here.
Does she have assistants? She couldn't possibly be monitoring all the time and it sounds like the site gets a lot of international hits.
W&W for R17. At first, I thought it was a post meant for another thread!
[quote]Does she have assistants? She couldn't possibly be monitoring all the time and it sounds like the site gets a lot of international hits.
Oh yeah, she has a gaggle of other moderators.
Please, you queens make them sound like Hell's Angels.
[quote]Oh yeah, she has a gaggle of other moderators.
I can only imagine a history littered with ruptured owner/moderator relationships given their batty natures. I almost feel guilty for saying this because I'm a female, but I know these types and they annoy the living shit out of me. It's all about their neuroses. It's like the straight online version of Michfest, except they don't have Denise Eaker around to liven things up.
This frau is pissed that her daughter's high school English teacher gave her a 95 on a paper.
[quote]Hortense approached the teacher the next day and asked, "what could I have done to make my paper even better?" The teacher asked, "did I not write any comments? Oh, the beautifully done. Yes, well...hmmm (page flip...page flip...page flip...) yes, well, here, this text might should be block texted instead, so that would be one point there... (page flip...page flip...) Hortense, I want to let you know that you received the highest grade of the entire grade level. I have never given higher than a 95 or 96 on a paper. Well done!"
[quote]Well, Hortense said she feels rather hollow.
Are you fucking kidding me?
I went on that site and it is disgusting and humorous at the same time. Stupid women bitching and moaning over trivial matters. They ask for advice but they really want others to agree with their side. I wanted to reply "who gives a shit?" in every post.
I am going to hang myself now.
It's funny how etiquette freaks are always the rudest people in a group. I work with one and she is detested by everyone because she is so condescending and superior. I friends with her manager who hates her like the rest of us do.
A Viper Pit calling a cage filled with rabid wolves noxious? My goodness, we are full of grace and forgiving today, aren't we?
That site's addictive. I just read "Ideas for a creative gift for a 97 year old" and so wished for DLers in that thread.
One woman said she always gave her granny toilet paper for a gift.
There have [italic]got[/italic]] to be some undercover trolls on that board, probably some DL folks. They keep it under control so they don't get banned but make up some of the wacko stories.
[bold]'Fess up and get your congrats!![/bold]
The woman who wouldn't take her cat to a male vet has got to be a troll. Every thread she starts has more bizarrities about how she DOES NOT APPROVE of her husband speaking to any females at work - and then she'll ask "etiquette" questions about sharing a hotel room with some dad from Little League.
Two who I wish were trolls, but sadly think were real:
1) The oppressed vegetarian clarinet player, who conveniently had panic attacks when asked to do anything she didn't care for and gave her own framed poetry as gifts for every occasion
2) The self-diagnosed Asperger's sufferer who wore cat ears, drew a horrible webcomic about her adventures as a fat girl and wondered why none of her roommates liked her.
It's Outraged Frau bingo over there! Make it a drinking game and take a sip whenever someone has a problem with another parent on their kid's team, or tries to micromanage a teacher, or complains that they caaaaaaan't go without food for two hours because they have low blood sugar and it's so rude that dinner wasn't served exactly at 6...
Hortense's Mom is one of my favorite posters. Any time her kid doesn't get 100% she starts a new thread to bitch and ask how to chew out the school about it, and obviously thinks her kids are geniuses and that it's unacceptable for anyone not to recognise their genius. Like the one about Hortense not speaking in discussion-group because she didn't have any points other students hadn't already raised and it was ridiculous that she gets credit for repeating a point someone else has already said yet penalised for staying silent. The posters are starting to get sick of her and point out her daughter's withdrawn personality might be more due to her own obsession with them getting 100% all the time, than the fact she got an A- once.
I don't remember the vegetarian clarinet player, but there are some posters who are obsessively anti-vegetarian. If you serve meat-free food to vegetarians you are obliged to serve meat to non-vegetarians, it's the exact same thing apparently. There was also a thread a while ago where someone claimed that restaurants shouldn't mark which dishes are vegetarian because "most people" find vegetarian food so off-putting the mere knowledge that a dish is suitable for vegetarians would make it unpalatable for them, and anyway vegetarians are morons if they need to be told what food is vegetarian because it's soo obvious what is and what isn't (then listed a bunch of foods, which mainly were not vegetarian).
This frau is fuming over her friends having potlucks. How dare they!
I love how trivial they all are and SO want to jump into the fray!
"My friend called me old, fat and said I had a lot of gray hairs. What should I do?"
I wanna pipe in and say 'hit her with a shit bra,' but not sure that would go over well there?
R33 Bree, BF and BFW *do* sound like the world's biggest cheapskates.
Wow, Hortense's mom is really something. She is even annoying to people who post endlessly about baby showers and potlucks. I can't even believe she has the nuts to bitch about how "unfair" it was that her daughter got extra points added and only went up to a 98 as opposed to a 102 score. What a fucking annoying harpie! I feel bad for young Hortense. I can't believe people aren't more rude to her, the editor there needs to shut her down.
[quote]I love how trivial they all are and SO want to jump into the fray!
Ummmm ... so that's different from Datalounge ... how?
Ah never mind. Have your fun and don't even think for a moment that you are exactly like them. You're not.
"Not even just to laugh at them?"
why not? straights come on this board to laugh at fags.
I want to know if someone killed Knitterly when she went to the baby shower. Bitches piss and moan for pages and pages, then don't post an ending.
She's busy bitching about the fact that she's the only one of her friends not to own a smartphone (because she's a SAHM you know!!) in the ludicrous texting thread. So I guess not.
I frequently lurk over at Etiquette Hell and trust me, the bull that goes on over there is amusing. I'm waiting for the next huge fallout. A lot of threads have been locked/deleted after the massive tantrum Ehell Dame had back in 2011 over the Facebook group. Keep in mind, the group itself was unknown until someone outed it on the board.
If the person in question had never said a word, there wouldn't have been a huge fallout, but I'm sure there would be people who would have caused a lot more drama over something else.
Ehelldame is a mentally & emotionally unstable cunt. And a homophobic fundie freeper.
Is it really worth trolling that board? You can't really learn anything from there. If you have friends and an active life but love gossip there's so many other places to go. You'll never find an Everest thread there.
What r1 said.
I was admonished by a snooty friend in a classy restaurant and told in no uncertain terms that I would not be invited back. I was mortified.
Another time, I was told (hinted at) to read the Tiffany Bluebook of Manners for Teens or something like that. I haven't. I'm 60 years old.
I am going on a two-week trip with the BF of the friend who made the "you will not be invited back" comment. I'm sure I will make many more etiquette mistakes. But he won't mention it. I knew them when they were broke.
I just try to follow the rules as best I can and a secure person will never tell you you've done something wrong or embarrass you.
Most of the threads I looked at have the same scenarios (vegetarian goes to a dinner party, people agitate to be seated together on an airplane) that pop up here as well.
R45, what could you possibly have done that inspired someone to say "you will not be invited back"?
I've told it on here somewhere R47. I've known these guys for years. They've been together a decade now. Every year they come back and take me to the same fancy restaurant. They're lovely guys, the both of them. A few years ago one of them inherited a lot of money. Anyway, so what I did was I grimaced, that's all. It was an expensive meal and when it came time to pay the check the guy (sitting next to me) made a noise, like oh! and went to get another credit card out of his pocket. I pretended to look down at the check and I made a fake grimace. From across the table, his husband said, "If you're going to behave like that, you won't be invited back." There were 7 of us at the Chef's Table. But he came back, my rude friend, the next weekend, and treated me to a great time on his dime. We didn't talk about the remark. I hate to say it, but he's starting to maybe get a little grand. It's his husband, from an old money family, who inherited. I've noticed that as fucked up as rich families are sometimes, the snooty ones are usually the ones who married "up."
Someone posts a you tube video and asks how they'd react. Do they really think it isn't going to go downhill?
Personally I think they must designate someone to be the sh*t stirrer there and make bets as to how long before a thread is locked.
For those curious, it's the one about Dvorak.
What is Hortense's mom up to lately?
Wow,they must not have anything better to do than argue about what to do when someone's house gets TP'd.
Unhinged frau yells at ice cream man for asking her daughter if she wants to buy some ice cream.
The first few replies correctly call the OP for acting crazy, but the helicopter mom frau brigade (that Audrey Quest person is a loon) soon jumps to her defense.
How did those women get married in the first place? Are straight guys really that desperate?
R53, from what I can tell, most of these women's husbands had mothers who were controlling, domineering, and manipulative. These men probably think their wives are the pictures of sanity by comparison.
R52, her online nickname is "Super Mommy." I think she's a psycho bitchcunt from the planet Hell. Imagine having her as your mother. Plus, she smokes.
Please people. Go out a prune some trees and bushes like a garden in Kyoto. Something, just get the hell off of EH and the hell out of the house if is making the grade for "entertainment".
Home Depot: vicious pruning sheers $9
They are all "hurt," "teary"...and planning revenge.
Those frauen need some run-ins with... dark lesbians.
I swear the massive stupidity runs ramapant. Poster is told about child that brother and sister in law will have. poster is confused because brother and sister in law want to keep it just among family until it's 'safe'. Poster's question: should i tell anyone else?
Umm...HELLO! You just told a forum full of strangers that you're going to be an aunt! Are you really that freakin' stupid?
Frau states her boundaries over mother-in-law's use of the washing machine:
[quote]Considering I am a stay at home mom and we have 4 total people in the household I see her 28 percent weekend ownership from Saturday to Sunday is more than adequate for her 25 percent stake in the household.
My guilty pleasure is the Angelina Jolie blog at Female First. Those people are insane. Conspiracy theories abound about the star herself and other posters.
[quote]My favourite recent thread was started by a woman asking if she could request a female vet because her female cat needed surgery on its mammary glands, and she didn't feel it was appropriate for a man to be seeing and touching a female cat's lady areas.
That thread was started by one of us. Guaranteed.
DL has its crazies, but most of the time, they get shouted down. Some of the threads on EH are full of good advice, but that advice is so muted and polite and reasonable that it gets ignored.
That site needs a good screaming troll who is willingly to set out the DSM definition of Narcissistic Personality Disorder whenever needed.
Oh yes, I remember the vet post. That was a troll, guaranteed. The sad thing is the poster has been on the site for a long time (almost as long as I have), so the fact that she's making a fuss about it is mind boggling.
I particularly like the one post:
"He's a vet. He's not going to do unsavory things towards your kitty unless you have knowledge that says otherwise. I have two cats myself and I personally find no issue with a male vet taking care of either of them.
So he's going to be taking out her mammary glands. It's not as if he's going to hold them up and say "look everyone! I have cat mammary glands!"
Honestly, this really borders on insulting."
That had me in fits, it was too funny.
And dramas again with a daughter being asked out to a prom. Potential prom date is clueless. Cue several generalizations that the date must be a creepy sicko stalker! Oh noes!
Man they love their dramas there.
Most of these topics, tweaked a bit, would create sensations on DL.
Imagine the shrieking and wailing if someone on DL had this happen to them:
[quote]As I was pushing my cart out to my car a woman (whom I didn't know) peeked into my cart and said "That's a lot of food". I kind of blinked at her and said "Yes, it is.".
You know, I sometimes wonder if some of the posters are just socially inept.
Poster bitches about the fact that they have a netflix account and because roommate watches netflix, recommendations pop up. I don't see what the big deal is. So suggestions pop up. It's not like you're obligated to watch what's suggested.
Frau is shaking with rage because her MIL gave her daughter ice cream before dinner.
I might be annoyed, but this woman sounds psychotic.
[quote]Sure enough, DD was sitting there eating an ice cream. I continued into the bathroom, did my business, and tried to collect myself. My heart was pounding in my chest and my hands were shaking.
Thanks, R76. It doesn't occur until Response #1, so I didn't know. I guess they all knew each other.
R15 all women are ruthless cunt dictators they are all about control they just dont,want the stupid provider males in their lives to recognize this fact too early before she is able to extract his wages
