    Default What are the strangest things your relatives do?

    My mother was a vegetable murderer until I took over veg prep and taught her how to do it. They still complain that my carrots have too much crunch but the freshness, flavour and variety of veg I serve them is worlds away from frozen veg mush they used to eat every night

    These are hilarious!!!

    My dh's family has all kinds of crazy. Here are some gems from his grandmother...

    - she doesn't leave her suburb. Ever. Mil and fil moved to Perth (from sydney) when mil was pregnant with dh 28 years ago, and mil's mum has never come to visit because the airport is not in her suburb (not kidding).

    - she eats the same meals every single day, and has done for as long as anyone can remember. She will make a big batch of this particular stew-type thing and separate it into 14 containers for lunch/dinner for the following week. She always has the exact same breakfast, too. The recipe doesn't ever change. She cooks a separate meal for her husband each meal time, and for any visitors she may have too.

    - and the winner... (WARNING: this is kind of gross and may be too much information for some people!!).. Last year she mentioned to mil that she has an issue with her vagina that she has always been too embarrassed to speak to any doctor about and she wanted mil's opinion. She explained that this has been going on since she had her 2nd child 50 years ago, and attempted to explain the symptoms.. "I have to push my insides back up there every morning" etc. Mil was very confused and said she didn't understand what was going on, so the grandmother (mil's mum) decided to send a photo to show her ... Turns out after the birth of her last child her uterus had prolapsed and every single morning for 50 years she would push it back up again

    Default What are the strangest things your relatives do?

    We stayed with in laws a couple of nights over Christmas and I helped dry up a huge lot of dishes on the last night. Weird thing 1 is they have a dishwasher but never use it. Weird thing 2 I must have used 5 tea towels as it was a lot of dishes and they gross me out once they get soggy and manky. I was just dumping them on the bench and was gonna take them to laundry at the end only to find out MIL had folded them all neatly and told me she would now use them for covering food. Ewww! I just thought thank god we are leaving in the morning and are only here for breakfast. I had cereal haha.

    I worked at Westpac for 12 months, you'd be surprised just how many people still use bank books! That was about 10 years ago though, there are possibly a slightly fewer people using them now!

    My mum still uses a bank book! It's crazy.. She isn't ancient either, only 43 years old! She drives, works full time, all the normal stuff, but still goes to the bank! She has to plan her week around going to the bank to make sure she has enough money for weekends/public holidays etc!

    He says it controls her impulse buying, if she seems something she wants, she has to go allllll the way to the bank, line up, get money out etc etc... This is too much effort so she doesn't end up buying it unless she REALLY wants it! Although she has a credit card in her wallet so if she really wants something she could use that!
