Flossie Dickey has made it to the grand old age of 110, but the US woman was in no humour for interviews on her birthday.

Fox28 broadcast a live interview with Flossie, who has three children, 12 grandchildren, and 20 great-grandchildren, and things didn't quite go to plan.

As Good Day Spokane presenter Nichole Mischke asked Flossie if she was excited about her party, the elderly lady replied, "Not one bit".

Other questions resulted in Flossie delivering sighs, or silence.  However, when she was asked the secret to her longevity, she replied, "I don't know.  I don't fight it.  I live it."

KHQ Nichole Mischke got to wish 110-year-old Flossie Dickey a very happy birthday this morning on #GoodDaySpokane and Flossie was just adorable! Happy birthday from all of us here at FOX 28!

Mischke later posted on Facebook, "Before we went live she kept falling asleep so I kept trying to talk to her to get her to stay awake. Her response to me? "How do you think you'd feel if you were 110?"  Touché Flossie, touché."

Another viewer tweeted, "Good for her! 110 year old woman couldn't give two f***s about TV show's patronising horses**t."
