In a good way. I mean.
At least mine are all kooky and amusing, too.

I love my grandfather, even when he FORGETS what he's no longer capable of and bites off more than he can chew.

*just came off the phone after about an HOUR on the line helping him translate a Chinese New Year's Party flyer from Chinese to English*

He somehow got himself on it LISTED as part of the organizer committee, despite the fact that he's SICK with a horrid skin infection and needs a nurse coming in to give him a shot every day.

*sigh* I suppose he enjoys feeling needed, but HONESTLY, that committee overcomplicates things to much. There's no special ticket price for OTHER Christmas or Thanksgiving dinners, but NO, the Chinese committee just HAD to give a special discount to "non-chinese residents" of the senior home.

AND they've done so for more than a year so it's tradition?! PLEASE, people are going to grumble. From what he's told me, the other Chinese attendees are miffed they don't have the discount and are fleeced/treating the non-Chinese, and I don't think the other residents feel it's a FAVOUR, either.

They probably think they're missing out on some superspecial Chinese draw because they get the discount, that's what I told him, and that since they put him on the committee, he really should tell them to just MAKE ALL THE PRICES THE SAME.

There's also a great bunch of nonsense about 'family members who are non-resident' discounts, but apparently they don't want to state it OUTRIGHT but they don't want the non-chinese people bringing too many of THEIRS in. FEH. I SAY IF YOU FEEL THAT WAY, JUST SCALP EVERYONE THE SAME.


I have a headache.
