This is a question Advice from Old People

Sometimes, just sometimes, old people say something worth listening to. Ok, so it's like picking the needle out of a whole haystack of mis-remembered war stories, but those gems should be celebrated.

Tell us something worthwhile an old-type person has told you.

Note, we're leaving the definition of old up to you, you smooth-skinned youngsters.

my only living grandparent
is my father's mother. whom dislikes me intensly. fun. one day, we had a conversation that went rather like this;

NAN: 'ere, emilybronte, where's that young friend of yours who spent christmas with us last year? she was such lovely lass.
EB: oh. um. that 'friend'? we don't...hang out anymore. she's moved interstate with a new, uhm, 'friend' of hers.
NAN: nevermind love, she'll know soon enough she missed out on a good thing. for now, she's just a fucking idiot, isn't she?

followed by lot's of knowing looks (on her behalf) and akward silences (on mine)

Doesn't sound like she hates you to me
Sounds like she quite likes you

Sounds like
She may not like you but she certainly does not dislike you either.

"Travelling companion" is an excellent phrase also.

indeed, we have our good days,
this came after many months of silent treatment. but it's always nice to get a conversation going with her, as she's had a pretty interesting life.
