Grandma Won't Learn Grandson's Name So He Mispronounces Hers

The concept of respecting your elders sort of goes out the window when they go out of their way to deliberately disrespect you. This person's grandma took no effort to learn a name, and refused to get it right out of spite. It seems like the only natural conclusion would be to give her some of her own medicine. For a different direction of a grandma story, here's a cringey guy who tried to correct a Japanese grandma on her own pronunciation of Japanese.

One grandmother apparently gave ISIS quite an earful.

In the video above which surfaced last week, an old woman in Syria gets right up in the face of some ISIS militants (according to the uploader) telling them that what they are doing is wrong.

“Oh you devils, turn back to God,” she says, “It’s all forbidden. I swear nothing what you have done was in the way of God.”

She argues against the unnecessary slaughter of innocents and warns them that their group is cursed.

“Neither of you will win,” she says. “Nor will anybody, you only will keep killing each other like donkeys.”

The men laugh and make fun of her, telling her to go away.

There isn’t much more information on the origins of this video, and the BBC wonders if the men are in fact ISIS as the uploader claims them to be. Some commenters are pointing out that if it really were ISIS, they would have killed the woman on the spot.

Over the weekend, U.S. led forced conducted a number of air strikes against ISIS targets in both Syria and Iraq.

While most young people would be super excited to unwrap an Apple iPhone box on Christmas day, Grandma was not so pleased.

"I'm really not equipped to handle this," she said, noting that she uses a landline.

Fortunately for her, it wasn't exactly an iPhone, but it was still pretty sweet.
