As the subject matter says really.

What does that mean?

Well the subject matter doesn't say very much to be honest

More info needed. Is it full-on snobbery or do they think they're being funny? Sounds annoying, but need to know more to judge fully.

Are they the Chippendales then?

Well if everything is flat packed then if the cap fits...

Are you all ineptly screwed together, wobbly, and have pieces missing?

In what context?

Are you Swedish?

Step children?
Ikea habit?
No, subject matter doesn't actually say it all.

My ils refer to other side as The Numpties. Or Clampetts.

Flat pack sounds positively lush in comparison

Feed them meatballs and gravy every time they visit smile

As in you met in Ikea? Or, do you come with badly written instructions and the wrong size Allan Key?

Cheap? Common? Swedish?

Do your pre-drilled holes have a habit of being in the wrong places?

ShadowSummer Sun 25-Aug-13 20:50:34

I don't get what "flat pack family" means confused

gordyslovesheep Sun 25-Aug-13 20:51:35

are you flimsy and difficult to assemble?

DeathByTray Sun 25-Aug-13 20:51:47


Tell me more.

Did your husband's family inherit all their furniture?

Awomansworth Sun 25-Aug-13 20:54:58

Everything you own furniture wise came flat packed?

Are you sure they're not saying flap-jack family? Maybe they just think you're yummy
