The son was harsh with words aimed at his father.when his old man was trying to feed his grandson the icy Coke, the son was raising his voice,oblivious to other patrons in the coffee shop,he went something like this.
" Pa, how many times must I tell you not to let Gavin( I guess this is how it is spelled) take cold drinks ma", the old man was feeling uneasy,then he said," just a little bit ma, all little children want some coke sometimes ma"
At this time,the little Gavin was making a lot of fuss for being refused of the coke, and his dad was agitated then he shot back at his old man again,"See now Pa, if you didn't let him drink the coke,he would not be so restless already"
The old man kind of knowing that the other patrons were paying attention to them,then softly he said to his grandson in the attempt of courting no further wrath from his own son,'Okay lah, Kung Kung(grandpa) will not give you the coke anymore"Period
You see,life is so funny, the son has surely forgotten that once when he was small, his parents were "pampering" him too, were "giving in" to his requests too but why can't the son let the old man "giving in " to his grandson for a little while.
Why should the son, raising his voice at his old man for "manja'ing " his grandson in public? I bet surely he had forgotten that "He was once pampered" before.
P/S : We were someone's child once, we are someone's parent now but we will always be someone's child
