It is a male thing, I think. He had a tantrum on Friday night when we were “up town” watching the big Christmas Light Switch On. He was hungry and needed feeding, he is worse than our almost four year old son. A quick detour to the Chinese for a bowl of noodles, and I hoped this would appease the situation. But oh no! He then complained that he had indigestion, was sick in a pub toilet, complained about me rushing his food, and then whinged he was cold. He did not have much of the festive spirit.
I would like to say that this was a one off grump, but oh no! The festive mood of a grumpy old man seems to have stayed for the weekend. Saturday’s “issues” were, fishing bait or the lack of it in our house, the cost of renewing his passport, the fact that he no longer smokes and still wants a cigarette every moment of every day. and finally and I think this is the best, how Apple are conniving and inconsiderate as they have added a chip to the new iPhone 5 charger to stop customers buying cheaper counterfeit ones. This had him really moaning, I mean like it was his sole aim in the world to be grumpy about Apple. Especially, as I am the very proud new owner of an iPhone 5, this really got him grumpy.
Sunday saw the grump, be grumpy with people. Anyone and everyone was fair game here. And between me and you, everyone got a mention! I think at one point he was grumpy at the fact we are going on a once in a life time holiday in 5 weeks!
Anyway, this week I am hoping for an improvement. I have a fridge full of food, I plan to feed him at regular intervals, say little to him, smile sweetly and hope he does not notice the happy pills I have crushed in his food!!
