This is really fun paradox. This is the first time I've seen someone say "if you have nothing nice to say then don't say anything at all" and then proceed to say something mean.

Doberman, in hindsight it wasn't the smartest of comments, I'll put it down the the Christmas drinks. But I really don't think I was being mean, so I don't get why that particular expression is relevant.

#1 is asking because in Australia, thongs refer to flip flops. I read it like that, but then saw it was from the US and it made more sense. I'm not sure how asking which they meant was rude?

I think Doberman was trying to modify the saying so instead of not saying anything mean, you don't say anything she considers stupid or ignorant (since underwear makes more sense). But who knows, maybe OP's grandma thinks flip flops are sexy. Not saying I support her comment, I was just surprised people aren't understanding what she meant.

#21 Yea, I was modifying it. I thought at least that would have been noticed, but it's ok. Guess I could have said it differently. Down vote me wonderful humans, for I totally deserve it. Happy holidays!

Maybe she has bad memory or alzheimers and doesn't remember her getting married? Just another prospective on the situation no harm intended :)

Chances are she just forgot due to age or something. Or she could be a jokester. Regardless I'm sure explaining it to her again will jog her memory.
