My wife has advised me that I am setting a new standard of general grumpiness. For me, this is a real accomplishment as I am usually content to exude a slightly higher than average level of crankiness. I don't have any one specific thing that has set me off today and am asking the membership of ar15.com, in an open forum, if anyone else is experiencing a greater than normal amount of grumpiness today. And, if anyone else is, what may have caused it. I have thought of, and discarded, many possible reasons that may have caused this malady. Please see my list of reasons that have NOT caused me to be extra-cranky today. 1. Wife - nope, she has been an angel. 2. Work - maybe but I got through all of my problems pretty early today. 3. Menses (male or female) - nope, have not noticed either bleeding or the unreasoned urge to go by a Corvette. 4. General Bad Mood - kind of but a bad mood will usually only cause me a general funk, not an active crankiness. 5. External Factors - nope but this was the catagory that I as holding the most hope for. Since this catagory contains pets(messes), kids(money), houses(repairs), and any other factor that could bue bumming me out. Please help, this is real problem (just ask my wife) and this post should not be locked![:D]

Hmmmm... Every now and then I do the same thing. Just a general grumpiness that I cannot shake. Excercise ussually does it for me. Get out of the house and DO SOMETHING that makes me feel like I accomplished something physically taxing. Fresh air, some time at the range, mow the grass, ride a bicycle, walk in the woods, etc. In the summer, I get really down. Bored. I have a night when I find a favorite book "Red Storm Rising" by Tom Clancy, get comfortable ina a chair and read it cover to cover. Stay up ALL night doing it. Ussually cures my malaise. An old home remedy for depression was 24 hours without sleep. TheRedGoat

Maybe its because you were thinking back to the time you failed Grammer 101 and didn't go back.

Hey MurderSHO45, Kiss my WHOLE ass! A post that is titled 'really cranky' and then goes on to describe the signs and symptoms of said crankiness and askes for help and commiserating IS NOT the right time or place to practice your Grammar Nazi-ism. Since we are similar in seniority here in both post count and membership date, I would once again suggest(strongly) that you.... Kiss my WHOLE ass!

Everyone, Please stop assuming that I am PMS-ing. Trust me, this was the first item that my wife thought of and we were able to immediately remove it as a possible reason. (I had PMS'd earlier this month, about two weeks ago).

During my KMWA response to MurderSHO45, I realized that I began to feel better! Yippee!! Many thanks to TRG for his 'funk-busting-cures', but I think that I was able to add one that we could all use.... Verbally abuse a relative stranger. For opening my eyes and allowing me to enjoy the remainder of my day, I thank you MurderSHO45. I still think you should KMWA but I thank you.[:D]

when I feel bummed or grumpy, I play golf, go buy a firearm, go for some exercise, or do some landscapin.

I love you guys, you are great. Once again GB, thanks for a great site!

Not just your house. A really tall building. You won't feel grumpy. But really, you're PMSing. Wait a few days and lemme know how things are. Also, get some tracers and some cans of gas. You get the idea. It'll make you feel better. Then run a few miles. You should be good to go after that. Oh, it could be menopause!

Its "them", beaming zeta-rays into your cerebral cortex. Only known solution is the old aluminum foil hat.

See, this is exactly what I mean. I express how I am down in the dumps, a fellow member recognizes that I am feeling low and offers to fellate me (see comparable post counts). While this is not exactly the type of 'love' I was talking about, it does show a certain type of affection and compassion.
