I want to ask especially mylot member age 70 and above did you have hobby watching people? I have grandmother age 81 years old like to watch people. We all in my family very uncomfortable when she always watch what my family do. Not only my family she also watch what our neighbours do. Sometime when i sleep in my room she also watch me. She can wake up at midnight if she feel someone in my family not sleep and still watching tv at living room. Is this normal for old people? or only my grandmother have hobby watching people?

That is so relatable. My grandmother from my father's side is the same way. She came over to our house last year and watched what everyone did. It was annoying, yes, but it's not like we could tell her to stop. We just let her be and went our own ways. She then remarked later to her daughters that we were ignoring her which was not the case. We were just busy.

@AkamaruKei Exactly. We can't tell her to stop to her face. That would be disrespectful. Instead, we just deal with it.

I am not 70 or over, but I do think it is perfectly normal for elderly people to watch others as a pastime. People are interesting and worth watching for those who do not get around like they used to.

My father 75 years old but he dont have this hobby. Maybe my grandmother bored because dont have any activity to do so she like to watch people. Sometime i make a joke to my mother and i tell to my mother maybe we should buy her smartphone or tablet?

@AkamaruKei That is cute! Your grandmother could look at all kinds of people online all day long. Yes, I think many elderly people are bored. I just think your grandmother gets joy out of watching people.

@Corbin5 But she dont know to use that technology and it very hard to teach older people using that things.
