Being a Grouch attracts all manner of perma-smile freaks spouting self help drivel in a vain attempt at turning that frown, upside down. Not that this gets the habitual curmudgeon down, quite the contrary in fact, for this is exactly the kind of human interaction that fans the flames of their misanthropic heart.
The popular misconception that ole’ grumpy guts is an unhappy soul only helps to strengthen their inner resolve when it comes to battling stupidity and ridiculousness. As the writer William Gibson once noted, “Before you diagnose yourself with depression or low self esteem, first make sure you are not, in fact, simply surrounded by assholes”.
