New York grandma opens office where she share her 100-year-advice

Published

Trying to solve a question or a problem? Grandma knows best.

CBS New York reports one special grandmother is lending 100 years of wisdom to strangers on New York City’s Upper West Side. Her makeshift office attracts a steady stream of New Yorkers, anxiously awaiting a chat with the woman who has 10 decades of life experience.

“For me, it was a thrill. She’s just wonderful,” one man said.

Inside the cardboard cut-out, you’ll find a laptop with 100-year-old grandmother Eileen Wilkinson waiting to chat.

She may live clear across the country in Washington state, but thanks to her grandson, Mike Matthews — who is an adjunct social media professor at New York University – she’s now sharing words of wisdom for free.

“You can be anything you want,” Wilkinson said. “Don’t complain about anything. You do something about it.”

Over the past three months, hundreds of people have stopped by, chatting with Wilkinson like they were old friends.

“She absolutely gets a kick out of meeting New Yorkers because they’re so open about their lives,” Matthews said.

A music student asked for advice on a performance. Others were curious about life in 1917.

One boy said he was already planning his next visit.

“She’s so wise,” he said. “And she really does not look 100. She looks like she’s in her early to late 80s.”

Wilkinson spent most of her life as a homemaker and mother. She says truly listening gives her advice-giving ability a personal touch. And she’s honest.

“A friend of mine will say, ‘I talked to your grandmother last night.’ And I’ll say, ‘I had no idea.’ She’s a lock box,” Matthews said.

Wilkinson hosts Facebook Live chats and has an Instagram account.

“It works both ways because I get great joy talking to them,” she said.

Wilkinson’s not slowing down any time soon, bringing new meaning to the adage “the road to grandma’s house is never long.”

She will turn 101 years old in January, and says her secret to longevity is living a good, clean life.

Read this narration by twitter handle, @Wenogetjob, which tells of how he eavesdropped on a couples conversation of a duping man. The man rented a house for 2 month, bought expensive items worth up to N50 million on credit. Left the rented apartment with all the appliances he has not paid for, after winning the trust of the sellers.

Hey peepz, I have a gist tho I don’t know if it’s true or not..But I will say it Sha. I was just walking on the street 2receive fresh air when I saw a couple. d man was telling his wife about an incident. I kukuma slowed down an walked behind them to hear d full gist.

It was more like a scam story. A certain man walked up to a Landlord in our area and requested to rent his apartment for 2 months, with the excuse that he was traveling to Canada and just came to Lagos for the Visa Processing.. They agreed on 150K.

The man paid and took ownership of the apartment.He then went out to Vendors in town and negotiated to buy expensive items on lease. With installment payment plans.. He was said to have collected home appliance worth N50,000,000 from various vendors.

He then took them all to the apartment one by one to build trust. At least once they know he lives there, they can easily come around and pack their stuffs if he defaults, these people didn’t know what would hit them was going to be deadlier than Tsunami.

As agreed with the Landlord, the man packed out even earlier than expected… Left with all the items, of which he had not finished the payment..and the Landlord was so happy to have struck a better deal He immediately rented out the apartment to another family.

One by one, the creditors began to come in and same story was relieved to them.. Some fainted, some threatened hell fire …. To cut the long story short, Baba Ijebu was arrested alongside the new tenant.. You know Naija now… #POLICE  no wan hear wuen

They were only saved after a Landlord intervened. He is a legal practitioner and took up the case. But sincerely speaking. I wonder how some people feel at rest knowing fully well their victims would suffer.  I guess it all centers on lack of conscience. This is bad #dojon
