My grandma is an old German bitch who won't be leaving me shit when she dies except for memories about her complaining about the Jews, blacks, and the Allies for being the bad guys in WWII. What a cunt.

My grandfather died when I was in basic training.

I'd just ran 4 miles out to the range in full battle rattle because I was missing ability group runs to set up the range. This was in week 4, so that still hurt, but it was doable. What sucked was getting smoked since 3am, then running out there. So, I'm resting under a shade tree, eating my MRE breakfast when they start firing, and I end up towards the end of the rotation.

Around noon, I start to move towards the firing line, because it's finally time for me to group and zero. Then I hear it "PVT [Chimp]! Get your battle buddy and report to the guard tower."

A buddy from second platoon was my firing coach at the time, which is utterly useless when you're first learning, but since that's how it was set up, that's where we were. I got up, dropped my magazine, cleared the weapon, got rodded off the range and started walking up the steps to the guard tower. I thought they'd found my contact lenses stashed in my locker or something.

So we do the dog and pony show of me knocking, asking to enter, standing at parade rest, blah blah. Nervous as shit. My drill sergeant, who at the point in my life, was the most nasty, meanest person I'd ever encountered, I mean, he fucking scared me, told me to sit down.

"You're grandfather's dead."

I couldn't even talk. Just a flood of memories and tears, unloading all the pent up frustration, sadness, and anger. I remembered all the good stuff with the man, him walking me up and down the driveway in Savannah when I was like 6, teaching me all about the religion that eventually drove him insane and killed him. The ridiculous stories, the card games, all of it.

And I couldn't do a fucking thing. Just helpless, angry and a little embarrassed to be crying in front of all these tough guys. After I pulled it together they told me I'd be leaving post the next day to go to the memorial service and started talking me through the process of getting him full military honors for his funeral. (We didn't do that, but it was nice to see they were human.)

It was the last time I've cried in my adult life, and only the second time in my life someone I was close to died. It's an absolutely terrible, no matter what your outlook is on life and beyond.

I wouldn't wish it on anyone, and I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother.

My grandmother just had her 80th birthday and there was a gigantic shindig for it because they think it'll be her last birthday.

I couldn't go because I was ill and the last thing I wanted to do was infect her. She's bad enough off that it just feels like a waiting game. I sympathize. MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS

When they fall they claws are going to fall off and they going to be crying like some little bitches.

I cried at 21 when my dog died, and a few months later when we had to get rid of the other dog. I didn't cry the summer after when my great grandmother and then grandfather died. I feel like a bad person.

It's just asinine to condemn someone for posting an unsolicited reply on a forum. Without such replies, forums stagnate. No one asked for Chimp's story about his grandfather, either, but he wasn't chastised. Put aside your lovey dovey shit for a moment and admit that her comment was pretty stupid.

I'm sorry (not really) that you're going through an identity crisis and feel useless. I'm sure running away to a be a tourist in a foreign country will illuminate your path in life. Also, I'm no longer in Wyoming, but don't feel the need to update random internet denizens of my current whereabouts. I'm sure living in a city where you have to worry about earthquakes and air quality makes you superior. omg yah rite fag lol

Ok, if that doesn't make your cut then add traffic, crime, unemployment and overcrowding to your list.

Two of my grandparents have died, both of them lived in Greece and I never got to know either of them too well. When they died I felt a lot for what my dad was going through (both were his parents), but not so much personally because I didn't get to know them too well, especially my grandmom.

I'm much closer to my other grandparents who i've been around all my life, and I really don't want to think about their mortality. Sometimes they say things to me like "I hope you get married soon so I can dance at your wedding." It's probably a good thing that they are comfortable with the idea of death, but it makes me sad to hear them talk about it so nonchalantly. I realized in the past couple years my grandmother is hilarious, and i'm sad that I never noticed before.

I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother, albannach. I hope you are feeling well through it, and i'm glad you're here posting now.

The difference is that vissario was being a dick and chimp wasn't.
