This is a question Family Feuds

Pooster tells us that a relative was once sent to the shops to buy an onion, while the rest of the family went on a daytrip while he was gone. Meanwhile, whole sections of our extended kin still haven't got over a wedding brawl fifteen years ago – tell us about families at war.

I don't really have any problems with any of the members of my family.

However, my grandparents on the Austrian side had a good one: both their dads had been in opposing sides before the second world war. One Communist (who went to jail for it for a while but escaped concentration camps), one Nazi. Both of them were extremely angry at their children (I think they were barely 18 when they got married)for marrying the child of an ennemy, and never ever spoke to each other until the day they died.

My family being the flexible sort of bunch, however, just let them sit at the two heads of the table so that they never had to speak to each other. Almost all the dinners and events etc passed without awkward silences, they just ignored each other. It was a sort of cold Feud.

My parents come from Austria and England, and yet there has never been any ill feeling between both sets of grandparents. Possibly because they didn't fight, I don't know exactly. There is just constant confusion between them.
