How do you win an argument by bringing up critically ill relatives? Was the topic at hand: "who's grandmother is the most ill"? Don't feel too guilty, she probably ran out of arguments and tried to hurt you any way she could.

Yes, i pretty much agree...its pretty stupid if you use your sick grandmother as an excuse to win a fight...
