BTD Forums  /  Live Right 4 Your Type  /  Question about Grandma's revenge
Posted by: 7111 (Guest), Friday, October 30, 2009, 6:06pm
I'm new to ERFYT and wondered if anyone could tell me which chapter of the book addresses Grandma's revenge?
I am a B; my mother was an O and father was an A

Thanks for any help,

Suzie

I think pages 337-338 are relevant although they do not mention Grandma's revenge by name.

Incidentally Grandma's revenege will cover
two type A parents having an O child.

It also covers two type B parents
Having an O child.

Grandma's revenge would not allow an O and an A parent to have a B child.

Are you sure? maybe he is an AB. Are you sure about your blood type?

An A and a B mating can also produce an O offspring as well. As will the other possibilities that C#  mentioned.

This would be considered a sufficient level of proof in a court of law.  These three facts cannot logically tell the whole story.

I've heard the expression that some things skip a generation (twins, nervous breakdowns, hair color, etc.)  This must be Grandma's Revenge! LOL!

Putting this with the twins comment from above makes me think that that might be why it's called "Grandma's Revenge" as opposed to Grandpa's -- having twins is a distinctly feminine trait (men can't get pregnant). Of course, it could have something along the same lines as "mother-in-law jokes." -- Who has "father-in-law jokes"? It's only MILs! Something about female-ness, I guess. :-)

My greenish eyes are Grandpa’s revenge.  My mom had brown eyes & my Dad blue eyes.  Some of my Mom’s siblings had hazel eyes (I think).  Pictures of her parents looks like she took after her mother.  It looks like my grandfather had the light hair & eyes.  

My son also gets his eyes from his father & mine, they are blue.  So his is Grandpa’s revenge also.

Well, I'm sure about all the blood types in our equation. My grandmother was a B, so I guess I got her type.
I'm also the only child of 5 with auburn color hair and blue eyes and the only girl, so I always wondered if I was adopted, but I'm not- - and my Dad was really my Dad.
My father had black hair, hazel eyes, my Mother was a blond with hazel eyes - - but my grandmother had auburn hair and blue eyes.

Thanks for all the input out there :D

I am quite sure your dad was AB and not A he must have been mistyped
- my dad was !!( in the army they put him as B type- and that makes sense)
But after he got sick he was Bt several times and we found out that he was really and AB.

Yeah, I was going to say!  Apparently lots of ABs have been mistyped, so don't panic.
