Grandmas have no verbal filter.  🙂  Your honeymoon sounds fabulous!

Ok, that’s terrible, but it also made me laugh. It reminds me of a lot of my elderly Jewish relatives. I can totally see my great-aunt ruth saying that.

I totally agree with Miss Longcoat, my Granny has NO filter…  That is just grandmas for ya.  I wouldn’t take it personally at all.

lol, I was going to say the same thing.  Older people just have no filter and say whatever pops into mind.  If she stopped to think about it, she probably wouldnt have said it and knows you wouldnt do that.

Ok, I laughed so hard I snorted.

Don’t you hate when someone says something little and it just sits like a splinter and festers? The more you think about it, the madder you get. I would just let it roll off, though.

That would make a cute sitcom story line.  Poor you. Grandmums can be so.. unfiltered.  When my Fiance and I went to tell her that Fiance was being deployed, she said ‘well just tell them you’re not going, its quite simple’. lol! I wish!

lol, I am so sorry, but you just made me laugh with that story. I have a 97 year old grandma, who is also still quite with it, and I must say that grandmas are priceless 🙂

hahaha, yes, it’s a terrible thing for her to have said, but i can imagine my grandparents saying things like that if they were still alive. they were very much children of the great depression and were really in to saving money. my grandma on her death bed gave my brother a diamond ring in case he wanted to propose because “it would save him some money,” not because it’d be sentimental

@destiny1120: Just sitting here thinking about your post, and wanted to share that as I tried on my dress for my granny recently I asked her what her opinion was on the tattoo on my shoulder showing or should I cover it.  She said “Well that tattoo isn’t half as noticeable as all those chicken pox scars in the middle of your back”.  Thanks Granny… Love ya!! <3 🙂

Sometimes cute little old people lose their filter with age. Don’t take it too personally please. In my experience, my elderly relatives tend to make a big deal out of everything because it adds some variety to their lives! Have a wonderful time on your very expensive honeymoon haha! Smile

Buwahahahaha!

Grandma at her age just doesn’t give a damn.

Gently laugh at her and tell her “Grandma, I would never!” and give her a kiss on the cheek. Then she’ll probably ease up, pat you on the back and tell you what a good girl you are.

Hahahhahahhhahaha……..yeah, I would be annoyed too.  She probably still sees you as a little girl and not having the money to pay for an expensive honeymoon.  I looove Tunacupcakes advice.  Congrats and have fun!!!
