“I’m not keeping track or anything, but you are being written out of the will.”

May 11th, 2011 · 92 comments

Grandmas: they can kiss you on the cheek while punching you in the gut, and you’ll still write a thank-you note…or wish you had. BECAUSE OTHERWISE YOU WOULDN’T BE HERE.

[Grandma]: I have 7 Grandkids -- 3 grandkid-in-laws -- 5 great-grandkids -- THIS IS A MESSAGE TO ALL OF THE ABOVE --  I just wanted to remind you that I am the mother of your mother.  Without your mother YOU WOULDN'T BE HERE. I want you to know that I am NOT keeping track, but Christy [redacted] is the only one who remembered me on Mother's Day.  Our will is being adjusted as I speak.  Lots of Love...Nan

related: But…but…I didn’t forget!

P.S. By the way, Grandma Cookie, I did call you at Palm Garden on Mother’s Day — three times — but you didn’t answer. But, um, Happy Mother’s Day?

    Wow. What a bitch!

    First of all maybe they were going to send her a card for Grandparent’s Day instead? I go ahead and just send my grandparents cards on Father’s and Mother’s day but some do Grandparent’s Day instead.

    Secondly, won’t she feel stupid if it gets there like tomorrow meaning the mail was just slow? Or maybe they had a reason not to have time to get the card like they lost their job or have a new baby?

    Sure they should have sent a card or called her, but one act does not make someone a bad grandchild.

      I wonder also how old the great grandkids are? I mean my grandmothers and my husband’s grandmother have great grandkids too. They are all 5 and under. So not like they could send a card or call on their own. I guess they get wrote out of the will anyway? LOL!

      Maybe you just suck as being a grandmother so they didn’t want to send you a card? I wonder if she always remembers to send cards to them for their birthdays and holidays?

      If the kids are under 6 then I don’t see a point in putting unnecessary pressure, like the tissy fit being thrown by granny, on kids that young. But if they’re older then mom and dad should have taught them that if they can’t get a card in the mail right away then it’s best to at least call and say thank you (or whatever else) to granny so that way nobody is being singled out to passive aggressive guilt trips. Granny should be wise enough to know that in order to receive love and respect, one must be able to give love and respect right back.

      Maybe I’m a bit too young/forward-thinking/ingrate, but I find thank-you cards to be exasperating. When do people (by and large) send cards through the post nowadays apart from religious holidays and dates related to the three big ones kept on the ledger at the town hall (i.e. birth, death, and marriage)? Email or (Nan, this one could apply to you too) phone should suffice – especially for a child – unless it’s something big enough to warrant sending a return gift/invitation to dinner which negates the silly thank-you card industry in its own right.

      I send thank you cards a lot. So do a lot of my friends and relatives. I find the more you send thank you cards showing how grateful you are to take the time to sit down and write something showing you appreciated what someone did for you, the more they are willing to do in the future. And on the other hand, if I don’t get a thank you note from someone when I do something nice from them I wonder if they even got the gift or even cared about what I did for them and maybe next time won’t make the effort.

      I am annoyed by cards, cards and more cards, and by those holier-than-thou etiquettards who keep sending them, because you know that they will get all pursed-mouthed if you open the card, read the card, and then toss it in the recycle bin. Have they given any consideration to the fact that the tacky pastel glitter-fest in stationery form they’ve sent me does not go with my Mission-style decor, and also that they have put me in the position of contributing more trash to an already overwhelming pile of trash? No. They haven’t. They’ve only considered their own “I’m so much better than someone who doesn’t send cards” needs.

      I could care less if someone tosses a card I send them after reading it. I would like them to at least read it but after that I really don’t care what they do with it. I display cards on our bannister for a week or so and then I toss most of them too.

      My grandma isn’t Mexican, but for some reason she fits right in to the Mexican family-based culture. She has like three different “families” she isn’t remotely related to (plus the family of her only daughter) that she will cook with and celebrate birthdays with and even travel with. The teenagers help her out with all these fancy modern things. I might teach her how to turn a phone on and off like she asks and my parents will pay for the phone bill, but the familia will teach her to get a new ringtone.

      It takes a village to teach a granny technology, I guess.

      You’re right park rose, a “grandchild-in-law” is the spouse of one’s grandchild.

      And believe it or not, those step-grandkids’ spouses would be… wait for it… step-grandchildren-in-law.

      Well I think that the inheritance isn’t either that much or that great if the great grandkids and grandkids-in-law are still “forgetting” to send her cards. So much for that trick. Not even an “inheritance” can keep this family relationship going strong.

      I feel bad for Christy because not only is she viewed as the favorite in the family’s eyes, but because of this favoritism poor Christy will be stuck with good ol’ loving curmudgeon granny for as long as the old bat is still alive. Due to grannys poor attitude, everyone else would be done giving a shit about granny and just write her off. Hopefully if Christy values her sanity, she will see this as a sign to stop sending granny cards.

      I have never heard of calling your grandparents on mother day, I guess because none of us in my immediate family do that (and it’s not like I ask friends who they’re calling on mothers day). The way I have always have seen it, on mother’s day you should thank your mom. I don’t do the whole “happy mothers day to anybody who is a mom!” thing, I thank my mom. And it is her task to thank her mom (my grandma), not mine. Though I can see how other people may consider it nice and thoughtful to thank your grandma on mothers day, I won’t be doing it.

    You know… sarcasm doesn’t read very well in print, but there are families that give each other this kind of crap on a regular basis. This may just be granny’s sarcastic way of announcing “Hey! I’m still alive! Hello!” Anybody out there? I know you wouldn’t notice if I died, but Hello?” I suspect that the intent is to prompt a few of the grand kids to pick up the phone and say “Sorry I haven’t called in so long, Gran.”

      Never heard of mother’s day either, must be western thing. It sounds appropriate too becasue kids fly put of nest in western culture. Parents are already at such high level in Indian culture that devoting a day in the whole year would sound like a degradation. You know Indian sons take care of their parents when they retire. People snicker when I say we lived in our ancester’s home with our grandparents. What they miss is it’s not my grandparent taking care of my dad but other way around because that’s how Indians roll.
      Thanks to hallmark campaign now Indian mothers have one more thing to be disappointed about. :roll:

    Gran:

    So sorry to have neglected you on Mother’s Day this year. We really meant to remember you on this special day, but things got a bit hectic. Julie was on her way to the post office to mail your package when her water broke (three weeks early). So, we all headed to the hospital and thirty-six hours later, our precious baby girl came into the world. Julie lost quite a bit of blood during the process, and we thought we were going to lose her there for a while, but I’ve got the same blood type and was able to provide the three pints of rare ABO++ they required. Lots of miracles that night. Baby and mom are doing fine.

    We had named the baby after you – in an effort to preserve your name and legacy – but now the birth certificate is being adjusted as we speak. Can’t have such a sweet, innocent child growing up with a petty, mean, vindictive witch as a namesake and role model, now can we?

    See you on Saturday for the weekly poker night.

    -Brent

    This is just another example of society failing our elderly. It would only take a minute to pick up the phone!

    Getting off the phone, well that’s another matter….

    Sounds exactly like something my Borderline Personality Disordered mother-in-law would write. Every word. Makes me shudder.

    One of the pluses of killing your entire family in cold blood is that you have a very short Christmas card list.

    Facebook is definitely one way to get your point across to your family. I know I’ve been bad occasionally at forgetting someone on Mother’s Day (I have a large, extended and step-family) but for everyone to forget one person? Ouch. I don’t blame her!

    When I was younger, I definitely had a few elderly relatives and friends who stopped sending cards or gifts when they didn’t receive thank-you cards. I think it’s sort of a lost tradition, something expected by the older generation but not important to the younger generations.

      I am young 30 and I always send thank you notes. I was just raised that way by my mom and I enjoy doing it. I expect them too but if I don’t get them I don’t disown the person but I may be less inclined to do stuff for them in the future. If I don’t get thanked at all meaning no in person thank you, no note, no call, no email-then that will be the last thing you ever get from me.

    I guess she’s fine with knowing that any attention she gets from her grandkids are only because of her money and not out of love.

    If she’s addressing her great grandchildren she can’t possibly be the mother of their mothers. What a prick.

    I sent a mother’s day card to my MOM. Not to HER mom. My grandmothers didn’t raise me.

    By Nan’s logic she needs to give her own daughter a gift for Grandparents’ Day. After all, if daughter didn’t have kids, Nan would have never become a grandmother.
    Somehow, however I think she pulls this on every holiday and event.
    “It’s your birthday so YOU should be giving ME presents. If not for me you would have never been born!”

    Dear Grandma,

    I’m rich, bitch!

    Signed,
    I Don’t Need Your Estate
    ——————————————

    Seriously though, I hate the whole “You never call” complaint. Last time I checked the phone works both ways. If you call and leave messages and they never answer then that’s one thing but this always comes from people who think everyone else should call them.

    Also, as long as they’re treating you well and appreciating you during the whole year, does it really matter if they forget about a Hallmark holiday?

    My children don’t do much for MY mother on MOTHER’S Day. My children make a to do for their grandmother on Grandparent’s Day, which my mom likes just fine because then neither she nor I are “sharing” Mother’s Day. I get “my” day, she gets “her” day. Win win for all involved.

    I tell my grandmother “Happy Mother’s Day.” I have never heard of Grandparent’s Day til now.

    Regardless, Nan sounds like a bitch so she doesn’t deserve shiiiiii. :)
