Question Grandma not talking to me


My grandma got in an argument with me. she is not talking to me. We live together. Started yelling at me saying that I parked in the wrong place. I told her its in the right place. she kept arguing with me. I should of just moved my car but didn't. she is one of those grandma's that will stop talking to you for 2 years if she gets mad at you. She thinks i'm the devil.

what should I do? What would you do?

ps. this is a serious matter.

If its her house then you should move your car and apologize. (Her house, her rules).

if its your house you should tell her to shut her pie hole or next time you'll park on HER!



By the way how do WE know YOU are not the devil?

Is she old? Maybe you just have to wait a few months and the problem will solve itself.

Regardless of who's house or parking space it is I would suggest you take the time, set aside your own thoughs, don't think of anything to defend yourself with but just listen to what she's got to say when she's ready to speak. I'm not saying you should agree with what she has to say only try to develop an understanding for what her real concerns are.


ps. this is a serious matter.
Darn right you are. So, just in case: I think this post makes me eligable for at least ten percent.
Plus if there's a real story behind it I claim first publication rights at one dollarcent per word.

I know he ain't cuz he ain't in The Guide.
If he is then I'm cancelling my subscription right now.
This Pantheon just isn't big enough to support another one.

Love the Babbage quote. Luckily for him he didn't work in modern IT where PHBs actually seem to think the answer is "Yes".
