Sharper than a serpent’s tooth. Two grandchildren who never held a 9 to 5 job, but were gifted with homes, designer wardrobes, horses, servants, nannies, free travel around the world, and breakfast in bed every morning, are complaining because, gosh, their pancakes weren’t round enough, and 95-year-old grandma was at fault!
