An old work colleague used to microwave his cold cup of tea/coffee after leaving it out for 30 mins. Ewww

Very unusual, but as long as it does the trick, it's your choice.

Where I live in the US at least, we dont do that.
Might I ask what state your friends are from?

It's acceptable if they can't use/buy a kettle where they live. In, the UK, it's inexcusable.

The thing that I dont like is every damn kettle has limescale and it freaks me out and makes me sick.

I wouldn't say its weird, I have heard of people doing it that way.
For me im afraid I prefer boiling up the water in a good old fashioned kettle.

I do it sometimes when the kettle is occupied and my parents won’t let me use it because they made enough water only for them. I don’t like to wait sometimes.
