    Default Curmudgeon in training

    This past couple of years SY02 has been telling me that I am getting grumpier. I think most of it stems from the sameyness of situations and people, and really just wanting person X, who reminds me of person Y from yesteryear to just finish their diatribe which I have heard before so I can get on with the rest of my day.

    I have first hand experience of watching people who were nice, getting older and grumpier. Surely this is a choice? Or is it pre-programmed in? And are people who are old and nice just soft in the brain and completely battulip?

    My worldview is that people are getting more introverted, more selfish, less respectful and more interested in owning the latest gadget than helping others. Essentially that society is in a nosedive.

    As such, I am equal to that in that it doesn't rile me up the way it used to. It does naturally worry me what kind of world my kids are going to venture out into. But in general if I would just lock my front door and be completely self sufficient and not have to socialise with any random Tom Dick or Harry then I'm all good. Perhaps relatives that I tolerate would be allowed to visit if by prior written arrangement and only for the time specified.

    So, anyone else embracing their inner curmudgeon as the odometer ticks up the miles?

    Love both pics. But not too much mind.

    I think contracting has it's part to play. No sooner do you iron out the faults of the previous customer, you move onto the next pile of tulipe. I don't mean system wise, I mean people.

    For example if person a is a lazy workshy bastard, you have to spend time figuring out how to motivate them into doing what you need. Once you get that bit figured out, contract ends and you are then faced with a rinse and repeat on the next workshy bastard in the next gig.

    The odds were good. But the goods were odd.
