Grumpy ... me?

My wife has accused me of being a GOM (a Grumpy Old Man) just because of what I wrote yesterday.

Well, if abhorring the commercialisation of Christmas is something that only GOMs do ... then she is right and I am one!

I am now off to find something else to be grumpy about.


  1. Here's something to make you grumpy - Sue is probably right.

  2. Hi Bob,

    I am quite sure we could find a long list of things to grouch about - perhaps we could start up an award service for the most deserving. I suggest calling them the 'Mellies' after that renowned grouch Victor Meldew!

    "I Don't belieeevee it!'

    All the best,


  3. Once we get past 40, ,we all turn into Victor Meldrew!!!

  4. Maybe you're grumpy. But the fact is, people get a tad mental over buying.

  5. Then we are *hordes* of GOM's!
    [sounds like a new sub-race of orcs:)]

  6. All because we're grumpy doesn't mean we ain't right, at least sometimes. Keep that scowl scowling!

    And here was I on a colonial version of your own expedition yesterday, saying to she who must be obeyed how relatively well behaved our own herds were considering it's the weekend before xmas.

    Oh, and we found a free park.

  7. I've got a 'Grummpy Old Man' mug to prove I am !

  8. With you brother.

    I try to keep my grumpiness in check but it is very difficult at this time of year.

    One is constantly provoked :-)
