Many suspect their grandma may have favourites, but one family knows for sure where they stand thanks to their grandmother’s brutally honest “leaderboard”.
US comedian Dan LaMorte posted on TikTok explaining the unique feature in his grandmother’s house, where at any time family members can look to see how beloved they are in their matriarch’s eyes – and heart.
“At my grandma’s house she has a board of the ten grandchildren’s faces on magnets, and she ranks us from one to ten. I’m eight,” he says proudly before cutting the video off.
The comedian’s TikTok followers found the system hilariously honest.
“I would kill for this kind of transparency in my relationships,” said one commenter. “I would have told her that she my #2 grandma,” added another.
“My grandma used to rank us too. She would regularly tell us of our rankings. She’s been gone for 4 years, but I talk about her a lot in therapy,” said one commenter.
“That was the basis behind this. She used to do verbal rankings so we made her a board to do it visually,” revealed LaMorte.
In a separate video, the comedian displays the rankings again three months on, explaining some of the reasoning behind the shifts in order.
He reveals that the number one favourite grandchild lives next door so she moves her ranking herself and is therefore invalid, while number two is a dentist and number three is a doctor.
He also adds that he moved up two places, now at sixth place out of the ten grandchildren.
“The key is to coast and wait for the others to mess up. The long game,” one commenter suggested.
“My great-grandmother’s favorite grandchild is my childhood dog, whose portrait takes center stage in her home,” said another.
