Re: The grumble thread

I'm *bleep*. I'm really *bleep*.

 

My grandparents (dad's parents) think they can make decisions for me (and brother). We're 29 and 27 yo. Now that pur parents both are dead, they turn psycho. Patroulizing every day to see when I open the window blinds, ringing and calling to wake me up etc. 

It's kind of stalking. I don't want dispute... But it seems like it has to get started.

Re: The grumble thread

Sorry to hear that @ComaChameleon 

 

I know we are taught to respect our grandparents (and parents) but they need to realise you and your brother are of age to look after yourselves.

 

You do have to remember though that they both are still grieving. They have lost a son and now a daughter in law. 

 

Probably best to have a gentle word without  falling out. You all need each other after all? heart

@Cleoriff 

Problem is, dad always showed them if it's enough. My mum and I always gave them contra and they needed it. 

Brother never did. They told him to jump, he asked how high.. And now they think they can control me. i always tried not to start arguments, but they overstepped a line - more then once now. 

And I'm really close to explode. 

 

They think just because they're old they are right.

Old age doesn't always come with knowledge or respect. Respect is a two-way deal. You must give respect in order to receive it whatever your age. With age doesn't come automatic respect.

 

Like @Cleoriff says @ComaChameleon you have to make your grandparents understand that you and your brother are adults and no longer need supervision. Politely but firmly. If that doesn't work tell them to f*** off. Harsh but sometimes you have to be harsh to get your point across

@ComaChameleon you need to start as you mean to go on. You're an adult and have been for some time. Your mum didn't check up on you, so why should your grandparents? You have to make them understand that.

That's right. It's just so hard to do so short after being back home.
