Lazy People

(The West)

I've been living with my 83-year-old grandmother who has arthritis, so she just lays in bed all day and everyday.


She always has an excuse for why she can't do anything, but then she'll turn around and say that she doesn't want to do anything! I think old people need to stop feeling entitled and like the younger generation owes them something.

My grandmother won't even use a wheelchair or a power scooter. She won't get on pain medication.

She has an excuse for EVERYTHING. It's obvious that she doesn't want to do anything that entails more responsibly and self reliance.

I'm soooo sick to death of riding this merry-go-round with her, and we as human beings can only endure so much before we reach our boiling points and it seems like the elderly are oblivious of the fact that other people have lives, too and it's not fair that because they're older that they shouldn't have to do anything!!!!!

I told my grandma that she needs to get in the habit of doing things for herself and get out of the habit of laying around all the damn time!!!!!!! Much luck to you guys!
