Is this how you get disowned? I’m pretty sure this might be how people get disowned.
A few people commiserated with Dae about their passive aggressive grandmothers. Like this person, who got the following text from their grandma around the holidays:
“Thank you for the Christmas box that you didn’t send thanks again.”
I’m not sure anyone would be able to recover from that one.
Finally, Dae managed to get ahold of his grandma and fulfill his duty by wishing her happy birthday.
She pretended not to know who was calling until Dae offered to take her out for dinner.
This woman has been around for long enough to know how to get exactly what she wants, and you’ve gotta admire her for it.
May we all learn this very important lesson from Dae’s experience: On Grandma’s birthday, there is no such thing as “too early” to call or text. In fact, the earlier the better. Maybe you should go ahead and set an alarm.
And while we can certainly learn from Dae's mistake, it's obvious that Dae's grandma can teach us a lot, too.
When you’re the matriarch of the family, it’s never too early to bring out the passive-aggressive messages. Feel like being petty? Go for it. You’ve earned it.
