The Grumpy Man


About me

“And despite his self-confidence and grumpy German sarcasm he was pitiable, with his hair smoothly brushed on the temples and sticking up in tufts behind.” (War and Peace, L. Tolstoy)

Now let me put the record straight, I don’t think that I’m a grumpy man per se. I notice things, complain about them and fight for them to be put right but that doesn’t  neccessarily mean that I’m grumpy, well not in my eyes anyway. Unfortunately, those closest to me tend to look upon these things as the dictionary definition of grumpy and so I’m branded as such.

Rather than fight it, I’ve decided to embrace it.

P.S. I’ll not claim to have ever read Tolstoy’s War and Peace, or indeed any of his work but it was the only quote I could find about a grumpy man
