A MIDDLE-AGED mother has responded with terrifying ferocity after someone tried to throw away a ramekin.
49-year-old Nikki Hollis roared “NO” in a demonic-sounding voice when her teenage son Scott tried to put a small glass ramekin, which previously contained a Lidl pudding, in the recycling.
Speaking in a voice several octaves lower than usual, she bellowed: “NO. DO NOT DISCARD THE RAMEKIN. WE SAVE THOSE.
“THEY ARE USEFUL.”
Scott Hollis said: “Mum is pretty chill in most areas, but I never realised saving ramekins was like a spiritual calling for her.
“You could feel the temperature drop. I honestly think if I persisted with putting the ramekin in the recycling, she would have torn me apart like an enraged puma. I was like okay, I am stepping away from the ramekin.”
He added: “We have shitloads of those little ramekins in a cupboard under the sink. You could use them to make an actual-size model of Ben Nevis.”
Nikki Hollis said: “I’m a pretty easygoing person. But there’s another side to me, and if you trying to throw away a ramekin, you’ll see it. And you don’t want that.”
