My Nan (that is my grandmother and she is the greatest Nan in the freaking world) is in the hospital. Thank God it is nothing serious and she should come home either tomorrow or the day after. Everyone who knows Nan loves her. She is like Sophia from The Golden Girls except nicer. She is a spitfire who is also perverted. One time when I was visiting her and my mom (my mom lives with her and takes care of her), Nan was watching Grey’s Anatomy. Here is the conversation that transpired:
Nan: Sex! Sex! Sex! That’s all they ever show on here!
Me: Well, why don’t you turn the channel?
Nan: Cause I like it!
Anyway, one of my cousins (who is a poser) feels the need to post on her facebook status about Nan’s health even though Nan specifically does not want people to know why she was in the hospital. This is not the first time my cousin has done this but this time she makes up a lie and tells everyone that Nan is in the hospital for renal failure. I was stunned when I read that last night on facebook. My Nan does not have renal failure and what she is in the hospital for is not life threatening. The reason she posted the lies is that she wants people to feel sorry for her. She is also a known liar who acts as if she takes care of my Nan when in fact she visits her maybe half-a-dozen times a year. She does nothing for Nan but buys her a birthday or present. She does not spend time with my Nan at all. My cousin is more annoying than those commercials for Mesothelioma lawsuits. The thing that upsets me the most is that she is pretty much taking credit for what my Mom does every day without thanks or praise. One of my biggest pet peeves is people taking credit for other people’s work. And this is what my cousin is doing. I truly believe she does not care about my Nan and only wants praise. She also acts as if she is supermom on facebook when her own kids know that neither her or their dad want them. It is crazy. She even went as far as taking one of my pictures that I took of her niece and placing it on her facebook profile. When people commented on how good the photo was she simply said “thank you” and “I would do it professionally if I could” instead of admitting that SHE DID NOT TAKE THE PHOTO! After that little incident, I refused to help her when she asked me how I did this or that on photoshop. Urg! She makes my blood boil! OK, my rant is done. Thanks to all who read this whole post.
