Grandmother, 82, Begs Family For More Wine While In Self-Isolation

Grandmother, 82, Begs Family For More Wine While In Self-Isolation

Self-isolation is a tough gig, but one woman has shown that you can keep the mood light and fun during a pandemic.

When Kelly Muller went to see her mum at her home in Ontario, Canada, she burst out laughing at the sign the 82-year-old had made.

She wasn't crying out for more food or some Netflix recommendations; she had simply pleaded for more wine. This is such a mood.

Speaking to Today, Kelly said: "She lives alone still in our family home.

"That day, I pulled up and gave a honk to let her know I was there and she was ready for me. She had a sign all ready asking me to get her more wine.

"I wasn't shocked to pull up and see her holding up a handmade sign. I asked her what kind, and she said, 'Red? White? It doesn't matter to me. They all taste the same!'"


Later, Kelly was kind enough to share the good news that her mum had been gifted some more wine. Hopefully that will help her mum for a few more days.

But it seems like this is a trend that is spreading around the world.

A woman in her 90s is trending on social media after she was photographed holding up a sign asking for more beer.

Olive Veronesi, 93, has been cooped up indoors recently at her home in Seminole, Pennsylvania, where locals have been told to stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.


As Olive is over 70, she's supposed to stay away from the shops and ask others to get some groceries for her instead - which is a bit of a bummer when she needs more beer, as she found recently.


Olive grabbed her miniature whiteboard and scrawled a message on it so that someone could help rectify her predicament.

"I NEED MORE BEER!!" her message read.


A relative of Olive's then took an amusing snap of her grinning away with the sign, holding a can of Coors Light beer.

In the interview with KDKA, Olive she said to the reporter: "I have a beer every night! I've got some in now, do you want one?"

On her love of beer, Olive continued: "Something to relax, you know? I think it's nice - something for a young lady!"


While many people have offered to help Olive out with more beer, KDKA has mysteriously said it has it 'on good authority' that she will be 'getting her wish very soon'.
