My brother and I leave one single disgusting burp as the message to each other as a way of saying “call me back” if no one picks up the phone. #MyFamilyIsWeird

Our family will immediately stop in mid action of whatever we were doing, collapse, and pretend we are sleeping anytime a family member comes in the front door.

If someone at dinner asks you to pass something, we always pass it the long way…at least 3 times around the table before you actually get what you wanted. We do it to guests too. #MyFamilyIsWeird

#MyFamilyIsWeird When I was growing up, if anyone took off their coat at my gram’s house, she would immediately put it in with a load of laundry. My friends would end up having to wait for it to dry before they could leave.

My Dad hates when the refrigerator door is open. Growing up he’d yell “the penguins are at the door!” as a reminder we were letting out the cold air. Once he accidently yelled “the pilgrims are at the door!” Now my whole fam yells PILGRIMS when the fridge is open.#MyFamilyIsWeird

When we were kids and my mom would leave us in the car to go into a store, my siblings and I would sit really still with our eyes wide open so passerby’s would think we were dead #myfamilyisweird

We taught our kids how the cow says “moo” and the pig says “oink” etc. When we got to giraffe, we didn’t know, so we said “ding-dong,” and it stuck. Now, when somebody rings the doorbell, the kids yell “THE GIRAFFE IS BACK!” #MyFamilyIsWeird

My family likes to sit around my dads yard and count the turkeys they see running across the field, once you get to #3 you must take a drink. They call it turkey roulette.#MyFamilyIsWeird

Every Christmas my dad prints off my brother’s entire search history from the past year and makes it into a scrapbook for the family’s entertainment. #MyFamilyIsWeird

Every time I would leave my great grandma she would bite my earlobe really hard when I hugged her goodbye. Whenever I brought up the issue to my mom she would tell me it’s just… what she does. #MyFamilyIsWeird

If we have leftover pancakes someone in the family will hide it in another family members coat pocket or shoe. When you find it you have to say. “I’ve been pancaked.” #MyFamilyIsWeird

We had Birthday Man. He left our presents in my parents bathroom. It was Mom’s way of having us wait till Dad came home from work to celebrate. We didn’t know every family didn’t do this. Try telling friends who he was & where he left presents & not sound crazy. #MyFamilyIsWeird

My mom always announces whenever she’s about to pass gas no matter where we are. One time in a Target she looked at me and went “It’s time” and released the loudest fart I’d ever heard. Then she looked at me again and said “omg why would you do that” #myfamilyisweird

My family is in the South, and my mom is obsessed w etiquette and dignified behavior. When we have fam dinner in a restaurant, my Sis waits for as many ppl as possible to be near our table and screams, “NO! I CANNOT GO BACK TO PRISON!” Mom always yells “Dammit!”

While grocery shopping, my son was aggravating me throughout the store. As we were checking out, I said “Brian! That’s enough!” With a straight face, he says, “Mom, it’s me, John, your son, Remember? You’re ok, it’s time for your medicine.” #MyFamilyIsWeird
