Grandpa thought he could make jokes last Thanksgiving about what I do for work, forcing my face to feel a deep burn as the entire family laughed.
Grandpa thought I wouldn’t notice that he clearly likes my brother Tyler more just because he lives closer to our grandparents and will come over to fix their cable whenever they want, which usually just involves actually turning on the cable box.
Grandpa also thought he could show up at my apartment and try to ask me to lunch; of course, I knew it was just so he could hang it over me for years that I owe him one.
Grandpa thought I would just sit back and take it.
Grandpa got what was coming to him.
