105-YO Cursing Grandma & Her 100-YO Sister Show How You Never Grow Out Of Bickering With Your Sibling

"We love each other but that doesn't stop us from driving each other crazy," the younger sister said. "She complains and is so particular about everything."

You can't live with them and you can't live without them. You can't go five minutes without bickering with each other and you still can't imagine life without them. That's pretty much what home is like when you have a sibling around. These two delightful sisters, 105-year-old Gramma, and 100-year-old Ginga can't stand each other when they are around, but still can't get enough of their sisters. They show that no matter how old you grow up to be, life with a sibling will always be the same. Watch!



 

The two of them are always bickering, but they can't stay mad at each other for too long. Genevieve Musci or "Gramma" was born on March 21, 1914, while Arlene Cody Bashnett or "Ginga" was born on February 4, 1919, according to grammaandginga.com. And the two of them have always been partners-in-crime as they grew up in  West Virginia.



 

"We love each other but that doesn't stop us from driving each other crazy," Ginga told MailOnline. "She complains and is so particular about everything. 'You can do this'. 'You have to do that'. I drive her everywhere and all she does is moan about how I drive."



 

Of course, Gramma had her own side to the story. "Arlena is the slowest person I know. She leaves me waiting on everything," Gramma said. "And she's lived here her whole life and still doesn't know where in the hell she's going. Yes, it drives me crazy, and I tell her."



 

They're complete opposites; while Ginga is described on their YouTube channel as the "happy-go-lucky, cheerful, always smiling, messier, and happy sister eager to chat with anyone anytime", Gramma is "more serious, usually in a bad mood and grouchy, INSANELY particular about everything, clean freak, and not so touchy-feely."



 

There's absolutely nothing that they don't argue about and it gives their family a number of reasons to laugh every day. "The gals argue about everything ― how fast or slowly one of them eats, how to get to the hot dog place or where to buy the best olives ― but they’re also quick to laugh about the whole thing," Gramma's granddaughter, Sheila Liljenquist told HuffPost. "They’ve never stayed angry for more than a minute."



 

They turn everything into a competition, including who's growing older better. "They now argue about who could walk the best at age 98," Sheila said a couple of years ago. "Gramma thinks she was in better shape when she was at 98 than Ginga is now!"



 

Each of them has lived for over a hundred years and seen so much together. Gramma has taken 40 trips to Italy so far, one of which was for her 100th birthday. Ginga has had an equally eventful life and would still drive a car at the age of 99.



 

They grew up having no toys to play with and mostly had only each other's company while growing up. "We were really poor, and didn't have much so we all just made do with what we did had,' said Gramma. "We didn't have many toys or anything like that, we just stuck together and played together."

Gramma had "skipped school" at the age of 15 to get married to the one she loved and they had 58 years of marriage before he passed away in 1988. "I eloped while I was still a young girl at 15, and then I was a wife and mother myself before I knew it," Gramma said. And while she's always looked out for her young sister, she said Ginga would "always run around like a crazy person and seemed to get along just fine."



 

Ginga looked up to her big sister because but also went out and had her own adventures. "She was the first to do everything. But she wasn't much fun so I ended up doing a lot of things she wouldn't," Ginga said.

Through all the sibling rivalry and silly arguments, they have always had a soft spot for their sister. "These siblings have been arguing and cussing at each other their entire lives, but are still the best of friends SOMEWHERE DEEP down."
