Strange granny

On Sunday, I met a strange granny with 2 dogs when my M was on her way to the ATM. Next to the ATM we were heading to, there is a coffeeshop, and while walking towards the ATM, we saw a granny waving at us, not in a 'come over and have a seat' manner, but more of a 'don't come near' manner.

We were feeling puzzled but since my M needs money for a VERY important matter (she was gonna buy my dinner for the week), we ignored the granny and continued walking. Then we realized why she was trying to wave us away. Her 2 small dogs (which we didn't notice), started barking their heads off at us and everyone turned to look.

It was non-stop barking, and loud too. My M was very happy that I totally ignored the barking dogs but she rolled her eyes when she heard what the granny told her tolds. I think in her bid to make her dogs shut up, the granny was saying 'ok, enough, good, clever.' I don't know what makes her think that praising her dogs will make them shut up, it's more like she's reinforcing their bad behavior.

Well, they were still barking as we left and my M told me that it's the granny's problem she can't control her own dogs, what right does she have to tell us to stay away. And if the market is not in the opposite direction, my M would be very tempted to deliberately walk past the granny.

I think my M is very naughty to think that.

But it'll be FUN!

Hum... I dont think the granny is right to tell her doggies clever when they are not. :P

being rewarded for bad sounds like something I need to train my Mom to do!

"Like Dog Like Owner". Dogs will behave & will have the same characteristics as their owners. Her dogs & she herself need some training. You know, the dogs cannot be trained if the owners are not trained 1st.

I think your M has the right to go to the ATM machine and that Granny should have moved on and be on her way. I think it was rude for her to wave at your M and tell her not to come that way.
You GO M!
