    Omg my mum does that too! So embarrassing! 'Doggy bags' lol!

    My mum buys everything with a reduced sticker on it! She can't help herself. Fair enough if Its something's that's gonna get eaten that day/night but she just buys anything because she's getting it for half the price. Her freezer is full of reduced crap that's probably never gonna get eaten.

    They are only early 20's so maybe they bought it when they were 2 and been saving it since?

    Not a relative but someone at work microwaves salad for a few seconds 'to take the chill off it'. Why don't you just take it out of the fridge 2 minutes before you eat it??

    Default What are the strangest things your relatives do?

    My cousin, aged 13 at the time, went missing at our big family Xmas get together. A few of us were walking around searching for him, calling out his name, we even strolled down to nearby bush land to try and find him.

    He was missing for a good hour before my Aunty finally found him. He had been hiding in the boot of his parents car...NAKED.

    Apparently you can still get Mrs McGregors margarine! I haven't seen it around for years though.
