Loads of mums agree that this is the one phrase that absolutely wrecks their heads
Does this happen to you too?
We have to agree with this one mum who took to Mumsnet about the phrase 'I don't know'. It sometimes seems like kids, and a lot of teenagers pick up this blasé attitude and never give a proper answer.
The mum said:
"Does anyone else get pissed off with 'I don't mind' answers to every single question you ask the family? What do you fancy for tea? .... I don't mind. What film shall we watch? ... I don't mind. How would you like to live your last day on earth? ... I don't mind."
"Seriously, a little clue as to what you fancy for dinners as I'm doing the weekly shop in Sainsburys (other supermarkets are available) would be nice, and then they moan because it's the stuff stuff every time....!!!"
Many mums agreed, with one saying it's not even the kids that do it:
"My husband does this with the tv and then complains when I pick something he’s not interested. Make a bloody decision or I’m picking and you can suck it up."
While another said:
"One of DD's friends answers "I don't mind" to most questions...I think she's trying to be polite, but it's annoying when I want to find out what she'd like for lunch, would she prefer to go swimming with DD or hang out at our house, etc.
"Someone has to make a decision!"
Does this get on anyone else's nerves?
