Why did Granny hit Richard with a wet towel? Why dies his punishment seem unjust to him?

I think it was when Richard said something wrong to Granny

Richard made an comment that Granny considered obscene, thus, she hit him with a towel. Richard sees his punishment as unjust because he didn't understand what he said, he was simply repeating what he'd heard.
