Whooooosh!I'd like to have a Grump.
Jason B. Why does everything have to be a competition with a winner. Why does a thread have to become a populist media circus? The whole point of being a Grump is that we don't belive in and indulge in such populist nonsense.
We were all quite happy Grumping away but now new grumps have to feel there input is being vetted for quality. This will turn a quite nice and amusing thread into one filled with ******** as wannabe Grumps fabricate elaborate stories to impress.
Rather than being a contest why not simply leave it as is and remove your post.
I note Jason B that you post on here suggesting some kind of points system or the like but yet you do not self-identify as a being a Grump. I also notice that the Grump icon has gone missing from us self confessed Grumps ID. panels. Perhaps you could use your influence and get that re-instated. What is the point being a Grump if we can't be identified as one.
feel free....it will confuse a few!!!Everyone should adopt gordonzz avatar? Sorry for being polite in my previous post.
women eh??? you could throw all the scientists you want at it ....but "female logic" will never be decoded!!!!Today I give you.........
Women's (lack of) logic. Here's a recent example.
Wor Lass:- "I've decided to have a dinner party"
Me:- "Fine. Who's coming?"
(She reels-off over a dozen names)
Me:- "Where are they all going to sit? We can only get 6 around our table, and that's a squeeze."
WL:- "Some of them can sit in the living room."
Me:- "What?..... And eat off their laps, a-la TV dinner?"
Me:- "Hardly a dinner party, is it? In any case, there still won't be enough seats. There's only comfortably room for seven in the living room. Can't you cut it down to us and 2 couples? That's a proper dinner party."
WL:- "Then some will feel left out!"
Me:- "Well, have one dinner party a month until everyone has been."
WL:- "It will be nicer if we're all together."
Me:- "If you must have them all here together, why not just drinks & nibbles, or maybe a finger buffet?"
WL:- "I've promised them a dinner party now."
Me:- "You'd better start looking for a venue, then."
I ask you............... Who in their right mind invites more people to a dinner party than they can seat at the table??? I never got as far as mentioning that we only have 6 place-settings. It's all gone quiet on the dinner party planning front, now......... But I'm sure it will come-up again sometime soon.
I'm not sure grumpiness would accurately describe a post with such obvious anger, and vindictiveness.We have a winner!
I don't think anyone could surpass Abarth Mike's level of grumpiness!
..and I thought I was being polite.Embarrassing meltdown might come closer.
