Not everyone has a grandma like mine, thank heavens! I hesitate to tell many of her shenanigans, her word, not mine, but I’ll just mention one. She seems and looks like a regular older woman, but that’s all fake. In her mind she believes, actually truly thinks, she’s on this earth to teach people how to behave.
A mere trip to the grocery is an embarrassment to me, but I endure because she needs help. Her eyesight is not very good and she’s been known to purchase out of date items, for example. I usually accompany her but have learned to keep myself steeled to her actions. Heaven forbid there is a child screaming or running around pushing an empty cart. She is capable of bringing them and their parent to tears.
On the plane, pictured above by a flight attendant after the incident, is a prime example of how she demonstrates her “rights”. The man sitting in front of her had put his seat back as far as it would go and his head was basically in my grandma’s lap. Most people aren’t this selfish but it is annoying. Grandma wasn’t having it. She pulled out her inhaler and squirted it in the guy’s face. Luckily he had his eyes closed trying to nap. The man shot up and buzzed the steward.
If you happen to see my grandma, the “lady” pictured above, mind your manners or give her a wide berth.,
