Sorry OP some families can be real assholes even to their one of their own.
That's what I thought too (that the grandparents were giant assholes) but the I read it again and, maybe, it could be a joke. My grandparents have a sense of humour a bit like that and this sounds like a practical joke they might play. I suppose op will soon find out, if he hasn't already, because they would tell him (and watch for that priceless expression). I don't know, it's just a thought. But if it isn't a prank, and even if it is, the grandparents are really cruel
You should play along with it and then when the times right you should start talking in Italian. Embarrass them.
OP should just start nodding along, then say "Ya I hate that about myself too. Oh, and by the way happy birthday." in Italian. Then OP should just get up, walk over to the presents, and hand over the present. Then walk out like a badass, completely straight faced. Boom, a bomb goes off as he walks away and he puts glasses on. *Becomes family badass*
You should say "Voi due siete ridicoli vecchie scoregge che, evidentemente, non hanno amore per i vostri parenti". "You two are ridiculous old farts who obviously have no love for your relatives".
