Yet, this grandmother remained unworried thinking she was merely referring to the handheld gaming system. Also, imagine the employee's instant discomfort when the old woman mentioned that her grandson has them. We are glad that all was figured out soon.
Let's face it, who does not experience such an embarrassing and daunting situation? Well, when you are old and admitted to the hospital, it is not unnatural to get confused often.

We bet you've never thought to wear your makeup to bed for obvious reasons, but there are those days when getting the makeup off before going to bed feels like a chore. Here's a twist. This granny would rather wear her makeup, lipstick especially, to bed just in case a storm blows her house away, and she finds herself on the news.
We'll give it to her to have positive thoughts because if a storm is blowing everything up, it means they might not survive, yeah? But, even if that's the case, a little lipstick never hurt anybody. Right, Nana?
A lot of the time, couples seem to have differing views on how many children they want. Those born into huge families will usually have a different inclination from those from small families. Sometimes those with nine siblings want fewer kids, but for this person, the paternal grandma wasn't about to let the couple board that train.
She had 15 kids herself and wanted her son to have as many but her in-law, having been raised with only two other siblings, thought differently. Hopefully, the two mothers agreed to disagree and let their kids make the important decision without any pressure.
Some folks might not get to experience what having a cool granny is like in this lifetime, but those that have will tell you it's the best.

Is there anyone a reader hates more than the writer whose book doesn't give what it needs to give? We doubt, and this granny confirms precisely that. While Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter is essentially a biographical action horror mashup novel, she still couldn't fathom why someone would mess with her favorite character in that manner.
The old lady left a scathing review in the same book for her loved ones to find and know that this writer didn't take the time to study Lincoln's character before they wrote about him. Okay, we get it but this particular one is fictional, Nana.
We are indeed grateful to the person who invented the potato fries, as it is a dish straight out of heaven.

Her appreciation knows no bounds as she publicly shows affection towards the yummy food item instead of showing gratitude towards her granddaughter. We are sure the grandkid must be waiting to receive some appreciation from her granny for being a considerate and affectionate grandchild.
Smartphones have replaced wired phones, and almost every one of us is glued to our phones all day. We tend to forget we live in the real world and that human interaction is essential for an individual's growth.

It may be entertaining for the granny, but it did not sit well with the others, including the ones accompanying her and others on the road. Fortunately, her actions did not irk the truckers on the highway, and she got away merely with a look of frustration.
We are sure most grandparents would avoid talking about their passing away to their preschooler grandkids, let alone speaking about a bizarre wish that this grandmother said. We understand this lady wanted her final rites performed in style while sending a message to her haters but telling her five-year-old grandson about it was a little extreme.
The lady indeed has a great sense of humor, but not at the cost of scarring her grandchild for life. Only, due to the hilarity of this line, it made it to the list of funny grandmom's posts. Nonetheless, our advice is to be careful when speaking around children.

This poor granny too is having trouble with her computer. Well, that is not the most interesting part of the story. The thing that caught our attention was her reason for getting the computer fixed. Looks like the thirst for Hugh Jackman is not age-restricted and women of all ages feel the same when they see him on screen.
One should never ever question old people’s opinions. Why? Because they are far more experienced than us and know what they are talking about. This is why we believe that this young girl should not get embarrassed about what her granny said. After all, it was for her own benefit.
So what if the whole restaurant got to hear what they should not have heard? Supposing all eyes were then locked on this girl as she stood up to go to the loo?

There are many things in the world that we do on a regular basis and never really think about. Some of these things seem pretty pointless, too.

Children have a special kind of relationship with their grandparents.

This lady’s grandma made it a point to remind her grandchild how they are connected, seemingly after a mischief, in a sweet but stern manner.

The grandma instantaneously blurted out a joke, asking the doctor to be careful since she was pregnant. Even the doctor jumped in and asked her whose baby she was carrying.

This lady's grandma gave her a list of don'ts that includes not dating a musician and not operating a joint bank account. Perhaps, grandma feared that musicians may not make faithful partners or that a joint account could create martial issues. Whatever her reasons, we believe that there's some wisdom behind her advice.
Grannies often give very practical and sincere advice. Some may sound humorous and only relevant for a time that is now in the past. Still, there's no denying the fact that hidden in grandma's pieces of advice are salient truths that can't be ignored.
This lady's grandmother advised her to wear good shoes to enable her to run away from mad dogs and Englishmen.

Perhaps, she was only advising the lady to stay safe and out of trouble.
Occasionally, it's best to let people be, even when they say weird and illogical things. This can help you avoid an argument with your granny when she says something that clearly doesn't make sense.
When ice is used in a drink, it melts and dilutes the drink. This granny, however, borrowed this idea verbatim and refused to put some ice in her water because—you guessed right—the ice would water down her water. Funny, right? So, how do you go about telling her that ice and water are just the same substance in different states? Better leave her alone. Granny must have her concentrated water.
