Funny but Wise Advice My Grandmothers Gave Me

Spread the love

Father told a funny story to his son.

1. Before you get in the car to go somewhere, make sure you’re wearing a good pair of underwear with no holes in them. You never know when you might get in an accident and they have to cut your clothes off of you.

2. Don’t sleep in the nude. You never know when your house might catch fire in the middle of the night.

If you remember your grandmother’s wise but funny nuggets of advice, feel free to comment below.

    Too cute! Love these! Grandma’s sayings weren’t near as cute as the way she just talked, in general. She used ol’ Ozark hillbilly talk and us girls would giggle. She’d say, “You girls are just a bunch of giggle boxes!” She did call us her little “pooters” and we’d laugh out loud. My Dad’s mom, Grandma Hale, told me when you reach 70 you can say whatever you want. ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿค๐Ÿ˜Š

    My grandmother told me: 1. Pretty dishes don’t guarantee a good meal. 2. It is as easy to fall in love with a rich man as a poor one – pick the rich one. 3. Take every opportunity to shower with your husband – it’s fun! 4. You can’t make a silk purse from a sows ear. It took me a longtime to figure out #1 and 4… but they are very good and sound advice!

    Um, donโ€™t know if this made the comments anywhere, but if you get in an accident bad enough they have to cut you out, youโ€™re going to soil yourself entirely. My mom was a nurseโ€ฆ that youโ€™re wearing underwear with holes in them will be the last thing on the mind of anyone caring for you. Be comfortable first.

      You’re absolutely right- you won’t care. All you’ll care about is pain relief because Ive been in a bad car wreck and it was hell- two months in the hospital and at Christmas time to boot. But some if those nurses will surely talk about it later. It’s shameful but true.

      • bgddyjim says:

        I don’t quite know what you’re referring to in terms of nurses “talking about it later”. My mom told me general stories about things she experienced but the only story she went into detail about was the little boy who died of cancer that she cared for before he died, just before I was born. Everything else was generalities about real life vs the Hollywood version of what happens, or stories about what not to do – like don’t ride a lawnmower with the blades engaged because she has to care for kids whose father dropped them beneath the deck and it’s just not worth it… never names, never details. I don’t know of any nurses who would get into detail, mainly out of common decency, but also to protect their job. You have to be a special kind of person to care for others. Jerks get through, but rarely last in that profession.

          I didn’t say ALL nurses. I said SOME nurses! I worked in the medical field, Jim. I knew some nurses who were bullies and YES! They talked about that among themselves. They also bullied the good nurses, Jim! This has nothing to do with your mother. It isn’t about her and I’m not painting all nurses with one brush. Iโ€™ve known some fine nurses but I’ve known others who were cliquey. There are rotten apples in every profession! Thank you!

          • bgddyjim says:

            Cherie, there are rotten people and bullies everywhere. None of them had anything to do with my comment. I was simply wondering why you took it there. Itโ€™s all good, though. Iโ€™ll leave it alone.

    Wise grandmothers! My grandmother was against the idea of handing us umbrellas lest we lose it and bring bad luck upon us. So get wet rather than get unlucky was her mantra.

    • cheriewhite says:

      Wow! I knew a few that did that too. I knew another who made you take your shoes off at the door when she’d gotten through sweeping and I don’t blame her- it was like that back in those days. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿค—
