I'm of Greek descent, and when my grandmother developed Alzheimer's about 18 years ago, we found that she would take knives from the kitchen and hide them in her bedroom and in her purse. We put them all back and this happened a few times before we found her purse just full of knives. When we confronted her about it, she scowled and said she needed them in case any Turks came by. Thankfully she never hurt herself or anyone else. But yeah man, I get where you're coming from.
