Personally, I don't think she ever would verbalize her answer to anyone but I am certain she knows why she is that way but doesn't have the wherewithal to extend empathy to those with whom she interacts.

She would state she was robbed of her own life by caring for her brother.

First let me say that I don't believe Gladys would ever respond to someone who asked her why she was so mean. She would probably throw them right out of the house. But if she did answer it would be something sarcastic like "This is the way God made me" or "If you had my life, you would be mean too".

I agree with the other posters that it probably wouldn't have been a complete or honest answer, but knowing the background of her prickly personality was interesting.
