No kidding. That's really childish and would really tork me off. This time I would let it go. Think about how to phrase your thoughts in a respectful and understanding manner should it happen again. I think if this kind of thing happens with her again/often it is something that would have a negative effect on him. I'm sorry, but grandmothers who pout and whine about "well fine I won't play with you"........???? ugh!
