I used a water pistol to get my son out of bed when he was in high school. Giggled my ass off as he chased me out of his room. :-)

THAT WAS CLEANING SOLUTION?!?

Oh thank god

My dad poured ice water on me. Once it's happened a dozen times you sorta get used to it.

She smell of her cooking breakfast. My GOD that woman could cook, that would wake us all from the deepest coma.

/You didn't say it had to be a bad memory subby.

My mom's favorite homemade cleaning solution is vinegar and water.

Just sayin' there's a good chance that if it didn't cause her any lasting injury, it's probably not a big deal.

Also, when dealing with fully-grown people with serious developmental delays, sometimes you need to take things a step beyond gentle nudging.

In any case, it's almost guaranteed that the woman will see far more abuse "in the system" than in that home, which makes the case really really sad.

I never knew either of my grandmother's.

What's a grandmother? Grew up in an orphanage.

If grandmother had awakened me for school I'd have been hysterical.

Seeing as she died years before.

While my grandmother never woke me up for school....my moms favorite tatic was to turn on the damn lights

My Grams sang hymns while she cooked breakfast for us. The smell of the food and the sound of her, soft, singing voice was our alarm. You never had a bad morning under her watch. I miss her. I wonder, is waking up happy hereditary?

All of my grandparents died before my first birthday.

/Not all at the same time...

My grandma would come into the room, open the blinds all the way up to let the sun in and pull the sheets off the bed while clapping her hands and singing "Get up, get up, it's time to start the day. We love to work, it's time to start the day".

I am glad she was tasked with doing that only a few times. It was horrible.

After lunch one day my grandfather once squirted lemon juice in my eye. He did it to his own too, to make the eye tear and clean itself.
He didn't speak English, so I didn't really know what was happening until the burning.

D) Grandma beating on the door with a frying pan.

Granny was a beyotch.
 
2012-11-02 01:53:42 PM
(D) None of the above.
Mamaw hooking a hen with a straightened coat hanger,a flick of her wrist,and a headless chicken running around the front yard,flapping wings,and sprouting blood.Soon the aroma of frying chicken and sleeping in
down filled mattreses.
If PETA had been around in those days they would have met her sigle barrel 12 ga.

I did see my grandmother fairly often, but since she lived three hours away and we mostly went on long weekends, she never one woke me up for school. Pretty sure she never woke me up, either. (Not that I needed it, being such a naturally early riser.)

My grandmother? Telling me I'm going to hell because even though she dragged me to her church, I didn't act like a properly browbeaten zombie.

Senselessly?

/was she delicious?

For me it was the sound of the rooster in the backyard announcing that daybreak had come. The light piercing the hand sewn lace curtains and the widows with just a few imperfections that betrayed their handmade nature. The smell of bacon on a cast iron griddle. The pressure of her hand as she gently held my mouth closed. The feeling of her little old lady chin hairs tickling my balls, as showed me that Super Polygrip really does provide the best suction and grip of any leading denture cream.

Of course that was just this morning so I don't have to think back too far.

Love you Grandma!
 
2012-11-02 02:40:24 PM
I lived far from my grandparents so they never woke me up "for school", but I do recall the aroma of cooking bacon when I would visit them.

I have a feeling the lazy, good for nothing kid had it coming. This sounds like one of those households where grandma is know as mom cause mom doesn't know how or want to take care of a child.

A 74-year-old is taking care of an 18-year-old disabled person. The 74-year-old makes a bad decision, and we put her in the Florida penal system.

Something's missing. There's got to be some sort of government help for people in this situation, like a social worker that comes out to the house. I don't see how jail could help.

She was charged with felony abuse of the elderly or disabled

That's the wrong law. This is felony abuse by the elderly of the disabled. Case dismissed.

My sister and I were raised by our grandparents. Grandma called you once to get up and if you didn't you were "treated" by her singing this song.

School days, school days
Dear old Golden Rule days
'Reading and 'riting and 'rithmetic
Taught to the tune of the hick'ry stick

It wouldn't have been so bad if she had the ability to carry a tune.

My grandmother never once woke me up. My mother, however, would turn on the overhead lights and then throw a pissed off cat on top of me if the light didn't wake me up.

Smoke bombs + angry rooster was the wake up call at my house.

I visited my grandparents when I was on vacation. I was never awakened for school by a grandparent.

How common is that in Western societies?

Throughout grade school I spent 2 weeknights every week at my grandparents'. (One night with each set).

Of course that's because at the time we all lived within a half hour of each other.

I assume that's pretty typical for families who have grandparents to lean on...

It's almost comical. It's as if police and prosecutors get bonuses for the amount and severity of charges they can lay on someone.

I guess it has a lot to do with propinquity. My grandparents all lived more than 500 miles away.

It was definitely the forced blow jobs, man grandma had some strong smelling semen.

i wish more households were like yours. too many people grow up in crazy people homes because so many of the wrong people have children.

Gramma was a little surly some mornings, but on those mornings we were never, ever late for class.

My grandma once woke me by unleashing our 4 springer spaniels into my room while throwing their chew rope on my bed. They definitely got me moving, as that day I had a water bed.
