Grandma from Hell!
I have always thought that most if not all grandmas love and spoil their grandchildren until they are rotten to the core. Until I "met" this grandma across from my place.
Actually I have never met the grandma in person but I hear her voice almost every day, be it weekday or weekend. She hardly every talks in a normal tone of voice. She is perpetually screaming on the top of her lungs and the receiving end is a kid or kids. I know from the "conversations" that it is never an argument with adults as there is always only whimpering, sobbing or whining in between the screaming and shouting. Perpetually it is about "eating the meals too slowly", "fighting over toys", "not doing homework" or something or other. So, far.. it has been only verbal abuses and punishments. I don't think its physical. If I sense that physical punishments starts being meted out, I'll be the first one to call the police in.
At times, these verbal abuses starts getting at me too.. not only the little kids. Imagine on a weekend, when one is trying to relax and read the papers.... "HURRY UP AND TAKE YOUR BATH..... HOW MANY MORE TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU TO TURN OFF THE TV....DON'T HIDE YOUR BROTHER'S TOY CAR.. BRING IT OUT ...NOW!!...". I feel like marching over and slap her silly.... just one of these days......
Actually after posting this, I want to check out some blogs and stumbled upon this very interesting blog by ShowdowFox. A bit long but very interesting...and it had made be conclude that the Grandma may not be from Hell after all.. just a Mental case :)
