1. Having an entirely separate refrigerator in the house for "smelly" food.

There are entire companies dedicated to "second" refrigerators.

4. Having everyone remove their shoes at the front of the house.

To be fair, the floors were always clean.


5. Which in turn explains why they had so many house slippers.

No one likes cold feet.

6. Keeping the temperature at home near freezing.

Because they'd rather put on a jacket than see their heating bill go up.


16. Not knowing the names of all your aunts and uncles.

1) They live on the other side of the planet. 2) There are at least a dozen of them.


17. And even worse, the names of all your cousins.

"I think he's like my second cousin once removed?"

18. Stocking the freezer like doomsday preppers when they visited your place.

Because obviously you can't cook. Not like mom can anyway.
