Fussin' and Fightin' - Day 4

Could it possibly get worse?

Today at work, I received a phone call from home. Who is on the other line? It was Mike and the first words out of his mouth were..."Your grandmother is trippin'. She has been going OFF on the aide all morning! Listen..." I actually heard Muddear in the background fussin' and fightin' with Sharon. She was so loud; I could hear her yelling even though I wasn't on speakerphone. What is she mad about now?

According to Mike, Muddear was pissed again about the window being up in her room. And you know, we have been walking on eggshells for the past two weeks due to all of the fussin' and fightin'. No one wants to piss Muddear off unnecessarily. Apparently, Muddear decided that enough was enough! She was no longer going to stand for her window being up. It was official - Sharon needed to leave and never return. After giving this ultimatum, Muddear began to call for Mike.

"What do you need Muddear?"
"I need my window down and for her to leave."
"Muddear, it is a little too hot in here to close your window."
"Well, I need the telephone."
"Why do you need the telephone?"
"It's time to call 911!"

When will the drama end?
