For example, my grandmother will say, "Granny really wishes you would wash her dishes," instead of, "I really wish you would wash my dishes."
I think it's a form of motherese or something and I'm aware that many people use this form of speaking on children, but I'm 21. It baffles me to no end that they talk to me in third person. I've never ever heard any other family talk to each other this way.
Can anyone relate? It drives me crazy. Should I bring it up to them? How so? For you psychology buffs out there, is there a psychological reason for this?
The older I get, the more annoying it is.
