People say that as you grow older you get a lot more grumpier. Well, I for one think it's absolutely true, especially with me! If you ask my wife, she will probably agree ... LOL!
I'm a lot grumpier these days and my patience level, even when I'm taking those sleep aid pills is not what it used to be. I get easily annoyed with a lot of things. Sometimes even the smallest and most irrelevant thing will set me off. I used to be able to have a lot of patience. It would take a heck of a lot to even get me going.
Unfortunately these days, my tolerance for things are not very strong. I get pissed off by a lot of things around me. Stupid and incompetent people are the major contributors of making my blood boil. Unfortunately though, this country happens to have a heck of a lot of these kinds of people.
In my younger days, I was a picture of calm. I could take anything and everything anyone could throw at me. Nothing people did no matter how annoying would get even an ounce of a reaction from me. I would just keep quiet and smile. Maybe that was why people bullied me quite a bit in my younger days.
I can't even recall a single incident where I lost my temper except for one when I was in standard four. I had this class mate who used to tease and bully me throughout the entire school day. Unfortunately he sat behind me in class and would always be hitting my head from behind, pushing my chair, throwing paper balls and whatnots at me. This kept on going for as long as I could remember until one fine day when I finally snapped.
I remember he threw an eraser at me from behind and I don't know what overcame me but I got up, jumped over his table and punched him silly. He was bigger than me but I think he was too stunned that I actually reacted to his taunts and it took the teacher and two other classmates to pull me away. Of course, I ended up facing the disciplinary teacher but trust me it was worth it cos he never ever again bullied me ... LOL!
Like I said, other than that one isolated incident, I hardly ever lost my temper. But now, in my not so young age, I tend to be a heck of a lot grumpier and my patience level is pretty thin. The worst thing is, it's like someone up there knows I get pissed off so easily and they purposely send morons to piss me off.
Take for instance, when I'm driving, I'll always end up following some idiot who will be driving sooooooo slowly that he/she will be causing a nice long string of cars stuck behind them. Or you get people who love double parking parking their cars behind you and won't come out no matter how long you keep honking.
Maybe as you grow older your tolerance for stupidity becomes lesser and lesser. Wifey just thinks I'm becoming a grumpy 'old' man ... hahaha ... I'm not that old honey :D But yes, I am getting a lot more grumpier these days. What do you guys think? Does becoming older make one a lot more grumpier. Oh, wait a minute, I forgot you're all still young punks! LOL!
