My 3 year old granddaughter was watching me play and after a while says "You're not very good at this are you Grandpa?" .....

 

I'm sure she must have been peeking at my stats!...... :)

I suspect many of us are "Granpas".

 

+1 for the smile on my face.

Coal in her stocking. ;)

 

JK. 

 

Better yet, buy her something loud and annoying and send her home with it for some payback. :D

 

Plus one for the chuckle.

Stats-shamed by a toddler.  That's a level few can dream of achieving...  Congrats!

My 2-year old was watching me play the game and said "Don't you feel guilty that your game implies the deaths of thousands of crews and the destruction of peaceful homes on these maps, and the ensuing callousness of your heart is being mirrored in the real world towards those in need?"

 

I told her to go back to eating her applesauce.

I had to make an account for my Granddaughter because she wanted to play since she was 2 sitting on my lap (4 now). Now when she comes over and I'm playing she says, 'Grandpa, let me show you how to play.

I don't need a 3 year old to tell me I'm not very good at this game, LOL, I can figure that out on my own. I do wish I could interest my 13 year old granddaughter in it, but she's too much into boys IRL.

That is pretty hilarious, thanks for sharing that story. It will be interesting to see what happens when the grandkids are old enough to meet me online, after having seen them do Fortnite dances something tells me they're going to trash talk me a little bit.

We joke in my family about how bad I am at the game also. But my oldest son loves to see the KV-2 and the LT-432 (thanks Guido! - I think he thinks it looks cool), which I don’t take out much as I haven’t gotten much time in  LTs  yet. He is 5 years old. He wants me to get an O-I but I don’t think I can make it through type 91 and 95 for that. My daughter likes the TKS 20 because it’s so tiny.

Ahhh.....that is so cute.  There is only one appropriate response when a grandpa's cute little granddaughter says something like that:

 

"Lets see you do better, you little [edited]".

Or, "No, but I'm really good at spanking little brats.  Wanna see?"

So glad my daughter doesn't want kids.  Ungrateful little ankle biters!

 

JK.

 

 

One day, there's going to be some kid saying, "No! NO!  Go left!  Your OTHER Left!"  Pause, "Oh my God, do you even know what you're doing?!?" [eye roll]

 

And then I'm going to shove the computer over to them and say, "Okay, Maestro, shut up and drive!  Your turn!"

 

I can only hope that I -- and not that kid -- will be vindicated.  Meanwhile, it's still nice and quiet.
