Family likes to freeze food for a year before throwing it away

A FAMILY use their freezer as a convenient place to store food they should just chuck in the bin, it has emerged

The Bradford family’s freezer, which should more accurately be called ‘the food graveyard’, currently holds half-portions of tomato sauce, chicken breasts frozen a few days after their use-by date and multiple bags of vegetables purchased in 2019.

Mum Emma Bradford said: “That fillet of salmon that’s been in the fridge a bit too long? You can’t throw it away, that’s wasteful. So the freezer is essentially a massive bin for leftovers, a place where we store our guilt as well as nine bags each containing a single soft tortilla.

“We put things in there and forget about them for at least 12 months, then dig them out when the food has gone a funny colour and say in startled tones, ‘We can’t eat this!’

“Then you can throw it away without feeling bad, because you’re not wasting food, you’re tidying up the freezer. It’s win-win.

“Apart from the fact that there’s no space for stuff that actually needs freezing, like ice cream. But what are children for, if not sending to the shop for a multi-pack of Magnums and some ice for mummy’s gin and tonic?”

Six marital arguments that are really about sex

ARGUING with your spouse or life partner? Both insisting that the argument actually is about wallpaper even though it’s transparently about your sex life? This is how:

What to watch on telly

He’s pushing for Jason Statham in Meg 2: The Trench. Could he make it any more obvious that he’s after full penetration until the little hard bald man’s exhausted? She’d rather settle down with Love At First Sight, a romcom that’s all foreplay and a much-delayed climax. They end up watching Ghostbusters: Afterlife, pleasing nobody.

Whether to go for wallpaper or paint

She wants wallpaper but wants a professional in to do it. He’s happy to pay for wallpaper but only on condition he gets to slosh the paste everywhere himself with his long brush. Subtext: she’d rather use her vibrator and he’s eager to ejaculate somewhere unconventional.

Missing the recycling collection

As Theresa May explained on The One Show, taking the bins out is a quid pro quo; the man does it only in exchange for regular sexual activity. If the man has not taken the recycling out, this is a deliberate act of protest designed to draw attention to his similarly overstuffed balls. It is a battle of wills as to which will be emptied first.

A sock left on the floor

When a blazing row breaks out over the man’s sock he left on the floor and which has missed the wash, it’s really about one thing: onanism. The sock, symbol of teenage masturbation, represents the husband’s internet porn habit and his resulting inability to satisfy his wife. ‘Pick that bloody sock up’ means ‘you never do me hard any more’.

Forgetting to buy milk from the shops

An unexpected blazing row at 10.30pm when there’s no milk in the fridge can only be about one thing: boobs. He’s unhappy that he never gets to see them and has retaliated by neglecting to purchase milk. She’s frankly not that into having her tits groped while she’s doing the washing-up. A late-night garage milk purchase is cheesy and off.

Whether to have children

The decision to have children often causes arguments in relationships. He is keen to continue having sex for a few more years; she’s had enough of it. She offers the carrot of plenty of penetrative sex in the short-term until conception is achieved; he knows he should hold out but is unable to do so. Thus all arguments are settled forever.
