This Petty Grandma Brutally Dragged Her Grandson For Not Wishing Her ‘Happy Birthday’ Yet

You know what they say about family — you can’t live with them, you can’t live without them. We’re pros at putting up with each other’s shit, but that doesn’t mean we don’t get petty about it sometimes. What, are we always supposed to be civil?

Twitter user Dae‘s grandma is the perfect example. When he didn’t text her to say “happy birthday” by the time she wanted him to (which was way earlier than I’m ever awake), she decided to take matters into her own hands by sending him the most passive aggressive text known to mankind.

Apparently grandma is REAL salty about this, because she wasn’t about to give into Dae’s charms.

It’s a whole new level of petty, but it’s a level I need to get on ASAP.

But Dae isn’t the only one who has family members who can throw some serious shade. People on Twitter banded together to tell their own stories of grandmas, aunts, and even mothers who weren’t taking any of their shit.

But don’t worry, this story kind of has a happy ending. Dae’s grandma ended up finally texting her back — but she pretended like nothing had happened.

What can I say? Grandma’s gonna do what grandma’s gonna do. This woman is a con woman and everything I ever hope to be someday. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
