Today, my mom and I took my senile grandmother to the mall, since she doesn't get out much. She complained it was hot, then took her clothing off in the middle of the food court. It took us thirty minutes to make her put her shirt back on. FML

If I EVER made the mistake of taking my grandmother to the mall, and she did this, my FML would go like so:

"I had to hide in a bathroom for 30 minutes while my mom made her put her shirt back on. FML


Oh wow, how sad you would say that and how sad you would get so many people thumbing you up. My little brother is severely autistic, which results in him sometimes being loud or do strange things in public.
Yes lots of people stare and some assholes make nasty comments about the fact that he should stay home instead of being out with “normal” people.
However, I would never ever consider not taking him out because of a few thoughtless and selfish dickheads who don’t want to have their tiny world been bothered for a few minutes. My brother may be doing odd things but he is harmless and sweet.
These people should be embarrassed for judging, not me or in this case OP’s family and shame on you to think that people with mental sickness are better off staying at home. They have feelings too and they enjoy being outdoors like we do.
I think it’s great that OP and his (her?) mother take the poor gran out. If only people could simply could just move on instead of staring and making judgments.


Well let’s hope that your own family will not have the same reasoning if one day you develop dementia and that they will not be embarrassed by you but support you and take care of you no matter what.

Maybe she heard Nelly singing, "It's getting hot in here, so take off all your clothes. Granny's getting so hot, she's gonna take her clothes off."

Granny really took those lyrics serious.
