Talking Dictionary346. A Cheap Grandpa


346. Jay's niece Sonya, 30, sent him a wedding invitation. She had finally found Mr. Right. Jay called his dad. Jay said, "Congratulations! You might be a great grandpa again next year." His dad didn't seem too happy. Jay asked, "Is something wrong?" Dad said, "A year ago, Sonya dropped by so we could meet her fiancé. She introduced him to me as the world's cheapest grandpa." Jay said, "She was joking, right?" Dad said, "She was dead serious." Jay said, "She meant it? Shame on her! You weren't cheap. You and Mom struggled to raise six kids. You had to watch every penny. Why would Sonya say something so mean? Mom told all her kids and grandkids, at least a thousand times, 'If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.' You know what I think? I think you should give Sonya a toaster for a wedding gift." 2.6
