your username, wtf? that aside, try returning the favour and frame her for something?
Agreed, 45. My paternal grandmother point blank told my brothers and I that she hated us and that she never wanted us to be born, and made it her goal to make us as miserable as possible until the died. Unfortunately, she lived until she was 107, so we had quite a few torturous years with her. Not all grandparents are the loving doting type.
I'm not sure who coined the phrase 'selfie' but the word is extremely more obnoxious than the act itself. People have been taking pictures of themselves since the invention of cameras. Everything we do nowadays has to have a name or phrase or hash tag. To me, this is more obnoxious than taking a picture.
My money is on the conniving old lady theory. Besides, for the idea it was just an innocent misunderstanding of 'sexting' to work, she would first have to grasp the concept of a selfie, and I pray to His Noodliness that the vile, narcissistic activity hasn't yet reached the mainstream attention of our beloved geriatrics...
Just explain to grandma the difference and she should reason with your parents. If not then granny's a bitch.
Are you joking? In what world does having a phone and taking a 'selfie' imply that you don't visit/talk to your grandparents? Also,if I was sure my grandmother intentionally framed me for things I didn't do,I wouldn't want to talk to her regardless of whether I have a phone or not.
My point is, if this person is like most people these days, they probably barely look up from their phone long enough to acknowledge anyone at all. Grandma may just want to spend time with her, and since her phone is (possibly) such priority she did something drastic to force her off her phone. You or I don't know the full story, but I do know we're only getting a teenager's side of the story.
Even if OP's grandma wanted to speak to her,it's still low to turn OP's parents against her for something she didn't do. If the grandma wanted to talk to her granddaughter this badly she should have asked her in a polite way. Regardless of whether she did or didn't ask,she shouldn't force anyone to speak to her if they don't want to,in my opinion. If I was the OP I'd be mad at my parents more than I would be mad at my grandma for possibly assuming I'm wrong merely because of my age,rather than having proof that justifies the grandma's words.
