    My mil does all sorts of what you would call weird things but she is mentally ill for sure.

    Oh, I have more! My mum has RACV membership (roadside care, the highest level), but if she blows a tyre she will instead call my stepdad and get him to help her as she doesn't want to bother the RACV people

    My dad is like a PP's relative in that he'll keep all the freebies at hotels. I've found all sorts of tiny bottles of lotions, soaps and stuff, and tiny bars of soap. Oh and little packets of salt/pepper/wasabi/soy sauce. None of it ever gets used!

    My mother in law makes packet things (like those cookie dough biscuit things) but insists its her recipe. She does this with other foods, too. I dont get why you'd lie? Like, buying asian takeaway and saying shes made it herself even though you can see the containers in the bin.

    And she makes up stores from my husbands childhood which he says are completely false. Once she gave my son a beanie when he was a baby and told me it was my husbands when he was little, and I thought it was so sweet.

    Then we noticed that the tag had a manufactured date of early 2000. Its bizarre.

    Um, yeah well I keep my bread in the freezer as we dont eat much bread and its mainly used for toast or sandwich press.
    I also buy chicken breast, fillets, roast chicken pieces etc and freeze for a later date as I do my shopping on a Friday and we mainly have chicken during the week and I roast the pieces when I know my mum is coming over.
    I dont see anything wrong with this

    DH grandmother and grandfather are so tight with money its digusting. We were over there once having afternoon tea. Once we were finished she was picking the pastry out of the leftover tomato sauce to put back in the bottle. Hoards money so they can get the pension still(Im talking ALOT of money). When DH was little she bought him a $2 toy,but asked for the money back from DH mum (their daughter). When DHs grandads brother was visiting from england and stayed with them they sent him to the shop to buy loads of meat, but never cooked any for him. So many others about them.

    My dad always puts the toilet roll on the wrong way.

    Default What are the strangest things your relatives do?

    The other day we called to talk to grandma her sister answered the phone after a convo with her I ask for 'grandma' she said no1 was there and hung up (as they share a unit and she's attached to grandmas hip this was odd)
    I told my mum who called and asked for 'mum' again she was told no1 there so mum asked for 'Edna' and my aunt said I'll just put u on.
    Then today same aunt was trying to call her brother who passed away last year.
    It's so sad to see her like this ESP when she was so with it a few years ago.

    I buy raw chicken breasts aswell and freeze but I think the OP is saying she buys the cooked roast chicken and freezes it.

    Oooo I thought of another one. For all the people saying their parents take free sugar etc, I'll take that and raise you spoons and moist wipes!
    We sat down to a beautiful Christmas lunch at my parents with a beautiful dinner set and glasses..... And the pasta salads and little bowls of sauces had old maccas spoons in them..... And she gave us KFC moist wipes that were seriously from over 20 years ago!
    I went and tipped 2 of her drawers of extra 'tit bits' out straight away and she got so angry so I told her if she could tell me what was in the drawers besides the spoons, I'd leave them.... I filled the bin hehe
    But yeah, issues! Sundae spoons, mcflurry spoons, Wendy's spoons, the KFC pack with wipe napkin spoon and straw (as, in her words 'they might look nice for a lunch one day with friends') MUM they have KFC written on them!!!

    These are all hilarious!

    My Mum is the coupon or loyalty card queen. It's beyond the point of scabby. It's embarrassing! She has every discount coupon or loyalty card possible and she is always saying how much she spent or saved. Shut up! I don't want to know how much your Brazilian cost after u used a coupon! Grrrrrr!
