I recently read your column advising grandparents on "tough love." It
offered advice to grandparents with respect to misbehaving grandchildren
those whose own parents let them run wild. I have followed your advice, and
enclose a picture demonstrating the technique I employ on my grandson when
he just won't behave. They do not allow me to spank him, so I just take him
for a ride, and he usually calms down afterward.
Tough Love Grandma
A blonde bought a new Lexus LS400, and returned the next day, complaining
that she couldn't figure out how the radio worked.
The salesman explained that the radio was voice activated.
"Watch this!" he said..."Nelson!"
The radio replied, "Ricky or Willie?"
"Willie!" he continued....and "On The Road Again" came from the speakers.
The blonde drove away happy, and for the next few days, every time she'd
say, "Beethoven," she'd get beautiful classical music, and if she said,
"Beatles!" she'd get one of their awesome songs.
One day, a couple ran a red light and nearly creamed her new car, but she
swerved in time to avoid them.
"ASSHOLES!" she yelled.......
Then the French National Anthem, sung by the Dixie Chicks, began to play.
