Grandparents really are precious, from them telling us their adventurous tales to protecting us from our parents’ daant, they’ve done it all and we cherish them.
And today, Pakistanis are sharing the funniest things their grandparents have said:

And we just can’t stop laughing!
was having dinner at Nana's and I generally make niwalas out of my roti using both hands, which is not the "right etiquette" apparently. Man just looks at me for a couple of seconds then goes in his full bihari accent: "ab paaun bhi laga hi lijiye" 😭😭😭 https://t.co/nAlqdSfF8S

Haha, dadi jaan getting straight to the point!
My dad’s ancestral home was haunted. There was a spirit/jinn who’d wake one of them up routinely. Poor thing tried it on my daadi once. Daadi’s narration:
‘Menu ik hath nazar aya meri akhan dey agay hilda, main puchya: paiyaan tussi kaun ho?’

Anno Papa and I were eating moongphali and he says to me in the most dead serious tone, “Aj se tum mujhe nana nahn keh saktien.” I almost had tears in my eyes and I was asking him if I said something wrong and he replied, “Woh moongphali main daana nahn tha na.” https://t.co/oHAmjPHF7f
