GRUMPY, WHO ME?

GRUMPY, WHO ME?

“AND PEOPLE ARE INTRIGUED IF I REALLY AM

AS GRUMPY IN REAL LIFE.  PEOPLE FEEL A BIT

LET DOWN IF I AM LAUGHING OR SMILING.”

                       Jack Dee

     I wonder if it is age, pain, politics, people, or an upset stomach that makes me seem grumpy?  I often come off as being grumpy and at this point many are disappointed if I am not grumpy when I air my opinions.  At the moment I can pin point just what is making me grumpy right now.

     I am having trouble with the confuser and the printer which seems to want to redact everything I try to print down as I am researching my book.  This sets the stage I guess.  When I am trying to find answers to finding material, fighting the print outs, and trying to get an online program on so I can listen to some good cowboy music on a radio program from the PBS radio station at Mancos, Colorado, then the phone rings.  ON SUNDAY MORNING!  I expected it to be someone I know and would like to visit with.  No, it is a telemarketer that I can barely understand trying to tell me about the great FREE things I am eligible for.  I have to confess I saw RED!

     I interrupted him, and not politely, that this phone is on the no call list.  After saying he was sorry he continued his pitch.  Now I am really grumpy, WHAT IS THE NO CALL LIST FOR AND WHY DON’T THEY PAY ANY ATTENTION TO IT?  On Sunday and yet this is the continuous calls that come in, no matter that we are on the no call list with every phone.  So right now I am truly grumpy.

      Maybe this just sets me off over this entire election process.  Or maybe just not feeling good.  But between it all, that phone call just made me grumpy.  I was saved by an old friend stopping by that I had not seen for years.  I feel better now.  But I still would like to know WHAT USE IS THERE TO HAVE A NO CALL LIST IF THEY CANNOT ENFORCE IT?

      And what does this prove?  That government is not able to fix anything and if you are thinking it will you will end up even grumpier than I am.
