About jkgrandma:

JKGrandma is a resident of the United States. She has 3 children and 1 grandchild. Although JKGrandma is generally very private and prefers not to be pigeonholed, she has strong opinions and isn't afraid to share them!

When choosing a path in life try to avoid the psychopaths

If it bothers you that you aren't one of my friends and that I don't welcome you to be part of my life, well, then that means you're probably my biggest fan. Or should I say, my stalker. You know who you are. Meanwhile, my friends and family know who I am, how I think and what I do. Since you're not either of those, then this is as close as you're getting, no matter how often you paw through my answers, search for me online or come to read through my profile.

To the mentally ill members of Yedda/AOL who keep making new accounts and posting crap about me: Sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not going anywhere. If you're so worried I'll have your s**t deleted, perhaps you should stop posting s**t for everyone to see. In the meantime, you might ought to remember: You can't always get what you want when you want it ~ but sometimes you get what you deserve!

Welcome to IRE*Land







Regarding Yedda (AOL Answers) and the lunatics, fanatics and psychotics who frequent the place and hide their profiles so the rest of us can't keep track of their idiotic rantings and ravings: Either OPEN THEM UP or SHUT THEM DOWN! The rest of us are sick & tired of seeing them. Anywhere.


"'There is no use trying,'" said Alice; "'one can't believe impossible things. I dare say you haven't had much practice,'" said the Queen. "'When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'"


Finished looking? This is in my tagline, but it bears repeating. Please pay attention to the following quote, especially if you're superstitious or a stalker (you know who you are) or you're just generally an idiot:


"Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see."

- Benjamin Franklin


Don't say I didn't try to tell you!

Exploring the possibilities to get transferred to my home town though the chances are very slim as there is no branch of this company in my home town so will have to explore other opportunities.

Your kind words have been touching my heart and have been very consoling. Thank you very much for your kind words. Will try to cope up soon. Will try to write back to you again. Thank you."

MrWebster says:
"jkgrandma: In addition to all of your other admirable traits, you are obviously magnanimous. To learn that you and Gypsey have mended fences and that all outstanding issues of offended feelings have been adequately addressed, is truly remarkable. This is especially so considering her outrageously offensive and vicious insult to you for which she has yet to apologize publicly, even to this day. I can only conclude that you are a better person than am I. My hat's off to you. Regards and respect, MW (a REAL friend)"

~Sweet Gypsey~ says:
"jkg, had a nice time messaging back and forth today, took them long enough to make it work, and is the best feature on Yedda, we talked and that was only between us. If you wish to share you may, but we have that nice option. Why some think that you and I have problems as we had been disguising is beyond both of us, we have put any of the past in the past long ago, and have gotten along for some time now, children we are not, we had been there when needed. Gypsey"

Juliet says:
"Thank you so much for your advice on am i being overprotected. The doctors said that he may feel this way for a moment and it was for me to snap him out of it. They also have him on meds that has his heart rate under the normal rate and i'm suppose to watch for any wrong signs. So for him to leave with someone that really doesn't care about his well being had me scared. Thank you so much for taking the time to shed a little light on this situation."

maddi says:
"maddi says; thanks for the advice he use to show me, but that changed a month ago when he told me he hasn't been happy for the last three months. he said things weren't the same as when we first got together. in the last couple of weeks before he told me i knew there was something wrong so i asked him. he told me if things don't change then it would be over. to make things worse i have fibromyalgia which makes things different in this relationship. my doctor says i have severe fibro. if you know anything about this then you know it can be hard on a relationship. i have been fighting for disability for the last 2 yrs and my dr. hasn't finished my forms yet. so i think the financial part of this relationship is hard on him. i understand this but he also has to understand what i going through. i was married for 25 yrs prior to this relationship and he was only a user, calling me mom when i was his is not that way now. but a hug now and then doesn't hurt to let me know he cares. now that i have talked your ear off thanks again."
karina says:
"thanks for your advice. the way i asked him out and gave him my #, will seem stupid and desperate to you. i asked him in a letter and stuck it under his department door at work. i only see him sometimes, when i meet my friends in the cafeteria for lunch. i asked him if he wasn't in a relationship, if he'd like to go out. i gave that on monday. i didn't see him in the cafeteria on wednesday, when i went to meet my friends, so i think he might be on vacation maybe. i asked him if he wanted to have lunch in the cafeteria, one day when we have same lunch. gave him my # and a picture of me, off old temporary ID card i found. that way he'd have no doubt, who i was. does this seem desperate??"

MrWebster says:
"jkgrandma: I have not sent you a compliment before this for a couple of reasons. One is that everyone knows how I feel about you already (including you). The other is that I was unable to find adequate words. Now, however, I think that I've found a few. There is absolutely no doubt that YOU are the "class act" on Yedda. Regards, MW "

kelly says:
"hi JKGrandma. i deeply appreciate your answer to my question. you seem to be very intelligent and helpful. i'd like you to know, that i have told my brother and mom (i don't have the heart to tell my dad yet, because he is so over protective and it would kill him to know his baby girl was molested by her cousin) and now, being the loving but oh so annoying mother my mom is, she's making me go see a therapist. counseling sessions haven't started yet, ohh but they will soon. lucky me. as for the "girls" issue, i still am unsuccessful and i get angrier at myself every day because of it. not only am i angry at myself for letting my cousin ruin a part of my life, but i'm angry at him for making me like this. it's not fair to me. but thank-you for the well thought out and intelligent answer. xoxo, kelly."
