Today, my grandmother yelled at me for driving erratically. I was "driving" in a video game. FML
I agree, your life sucks 28 850
You deserved it 2 868

Paws_Cat tells us more.

I like how everyone assumes that I was playing Grand Theft Auto. I wasn't. Also, this got published fast! I was expecting it to be a day or something!

Give her the controller and I'll give her 5 minutes before she starts gunning it down the sidewalks...

"Darn kids and their video games and their hippity-hop!" Just try explaining it to her, I'm sure she'll understand to some degree

Well video games are very graphic nowadays.

And how does that make "driving erratically" as deadly as OP's grandma imagined?

I honestly don't see what this has to do with anything. I mean there are shows intended for kids that are worse than video games in that aspect.

Oh my gosh, you sound like my mother. Video games are pixels on a screen, that's it. What you do in a vide game DOES NOT happen in real life. I can't play GTA withiut being judged by some family members because I'm shooting "people".

I think they meant the graphics are really good so it looks like real life. Not graphic as in violent

To be fair, it probably doesn't help when you scream "die!" or "kill him!" to your pals lol

Give her the controller and I'll give her 5 minutes before she starts gunning it down the sidewalks...

Laughing as she does it

If this was gta I'd give her far less time before she mass murders everyone on the sidewalk

Well if it was need for speed or GTA I can understand driving like that...maybe a calmer car game won't set your grandma off as easy

What calmer driving games do you know? I have never driven slow on a video game

Do you not know what gaming is? When driving on games you are meant to run people over!

haha she should take license as well

"Darn kids and their video games and their hippity-hop!" Just try explaining it to her, I'm sure she'll understand to some degree

Hahahahahaha I loooooooooove your use of "hippity-hop"! 10/10 fishdicks

You'd better hope she never watches you play GTA...

Even if OP tried to humor his grandmother and follow the driving laws, the cops would just end up crashing into him and giving him a wanted level. You can't win, OP. Throw in the towel.

I was talking about the other 'activities' you get up to in GTA....

You mean like walking your dog, playing tennis, stopping robberies, and being a good Samaritan?

It was Forza Horizon. There are no police.

My Grandmother would do the same thing OP! Wait til she sees you playing a wrestling game!

I would drive crazy on purpose

"You see sonny you kill the prostitute after, THAT way you get your money back"

You never get the same amount of money back after you kill them.

In GTA IV you did? I'm guessing you're talking about GTA V?

In Gta 5 if you pay $100, you'll only get about $70 back.

hey, 70% off, not a bad bargain

My bad- I was referring to GTA IV where you'd sometimes get even more money from the prostitute that you'd kill, I haven't really figured out the money side of GTA V yet though and I haven't played it in a while

Grandparents and technology don't mix. Haha

And have you noticed? All old people are trying to fit in with Technology by buying iPads! Its funny, they take it everywhere with them and when they run into a problem. They turn it off and wait for a younger child to try and help them.

Let's laugh at the older people making a legitimate effort to keep up with technological advances! Hahahaha!
