Recent times in which my relatives have unwittingly put me in awkward situations

Abby: Mom! Stop teabagging me!

Me: Mom, stop hitting my sister with a tea bag on a string. I don't want to explain that term.


Grandma: I wonder what it feels like to be in handcuffs.

The above is something that you don't want to speak to at all, not for grandma's sake, because she only associates handcuffs with crime, but because your immediate family is in the room and they will associate them with other things.

Not that we know about other things. My friend was training to be a police officer and that's the honest truth.
