    Is it an age thing, or have you always been an old grumpy guts, but have got worse as time goes on?

    *mumble, mumble* Ruddy threads about being grumpy. Who do these people think they are grumbling about people being grumpy, or not?

    I tell you in my day you knew if someone was grumpy. They would tell you, and your friends, and your Ma and Pa, and anyone else within earshot. Mark my words, if I was grumpy you would know about it, have no doubt about that.

    Oi! Keep your ruddy ball of my grass! Who's been scrumping my apples? I'll 'ave the beggers!
    Ooh my lumbago. It right creases me it does, and when I tell the youth of today they just don't care.

    I can't be doing with answering all these questions about being grumpy.

    It's being grumpy that keeps me happy.

    I think as you get older you become more realistic and you realise the World is not perfect and you are not really going to change it. I think in the past couple of years I have become more laid back on some issues. There are still lots of small things that irritate though.

    I think getting older and being in a more secure place in life is quite liberating in the grump stakes. I go to work because I like my colleagues and the work.

    I don't like the politics or the jostling for position, and now I know can just tell them to stuff it if it gets too much, I enjoy the fact that I bite my tongue less and say what everyone else is thinking more.

    The same with CS staff I am unfailingly polite (because it isn't an easy job) but I do stand my corner and usually get the desired outcome. I don't care if it is not "company policy" if it is logical and not an unreasonable request it is not my problem if the system says no -alter it.

    No, just a little less tolerant, but I'm very laid back so only slightly.

    Jojo the Tightfisted watch out my friend, someone will take offence to the F word. Best remove it. I had to remove a favourite pic of a crocodile, because of the F word.

    I've always been quite grumpy. I've never seen the point in getting irritated though...it's better to wait and get angry!

    At least I don't have laughter lines to worry about.
