Book Description

28 Sep 2006

So - 'tis the season to be jolly is it? Well, not in the household of the Grumpy Old Man it isn't. In the case of the GOM, 'tis the season to have to put up with even deeper layers of vexation than usual, and the only thing worth celebrating is that it looks as though you might after all be surviving to the end of what has been another crap year.

Everything about Christmas gets up our snitches. Everything. From the breakfast telly presenters who tell us it's now just 120 shopping days to go, to the annual festive strike by airport baggage handlers. From office parties where drunken juniors have waited the whole year to tell you what 'the trouble with you is...', to parents videoing their precocious brats at the atrocious school nativity play where your kid is playing the part of the donkey's rear end. From the woman next door who drops in to show your wife the diamond ring her prat of a husband has bought her, to the 150th opportunity to see 'Whistle Down the Wind' on the telly.

And speaking of wind, there's the festive Xmas turkey that tastes like blotting paper soaked in a puddle and sends your digestive system to hell. And how on earth are we really supposed to look happy when someone buys us a tie with a picture of xxxxing Santa on it? Eh?

5.0 out of 5 stars My Dad loved it 20 July 2013
By Juice
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I know, some of you Grumpy Old Sods won't like a book about being old and grumpy, but my old Dad loved it. He even switched off his hearing aid so he could concentrate while his seven grandchildren over-ran his house with noisy plastic toys, loud-halers and renditions of the carols they'd learned for their nativity play.

5.0 out of 5 stars hilarious!! 13 Jan 2013
By Mavis
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent, couldn`t put it down and carried it everywhere, even the bathroom!!
people were asking why I was laughing whilst sat on the toilet, a fantastic, witty and cleverly written book
it took my mind off of the usually stressful day, as I am a carer for my wife, even she could`nt stop laughing at me laughing!!
highly recommended to lift anyone`s mood. "Well worth the money"!!
