I agree, only 42 here, but New Years Day I could have sworn I was 60. My wife will verify that I was a grumpy bastard that day.

I'm not part of the club but I'm astonished there's actually this many people that are older. I'm 31 and thought I was an old fart..

16 months short of your cut-off ... but plenty grumpy so maybe I qualify on combined points?

I'll give you this one, just remember to yell at a little kid this weekend.

Even though I don't qualify, can I get some early practice in and cuss at....er....yell at a little kid? I just finished sending e-mails to the Virginia and the Kentucky Attorney's General offices to get some sack of shit debt collector off my case (debt doesn't belong to me and they won't leave me alone) so I think I deserve to yell at a few kids...Please?

I'm in my 40's.
Bonus points are awarded for cranky old farts
I'm cranky because the Redskins lost. And, the second part... I think it's from the cheap taco pizza I had for lunch. Is that enough bonus points to make up for a few years?

Bonus points are awarded on merit, just being cranky doesn't cut it unless you randomly punish other people you come into contact with, so were going to need some clarification here.

The second part is a given after a taco pizza, no further details necessary.

And apparently can't read, what the hell do they teach you kids in school these days? You're probably that same disrespectful little bastard that crashed his skateboard into my truck and got blood all over it.

Not much apparantely because the damn "im" should have been "I'm". Too many damn text messages and abbreviations going on with the damn kids these days. Generation lazy, FTL! :|

(Does that count as grumpy?)

Yeah, you've really got the hang of it.

I'll bet RossMAN is going to have one hell of a tin foil ball by the time he makes fifty.

Give me a break. Everyone says your older than Satan and twice as mean, I think theres even a thread about it over at tfnn.
Speaking of grumpy old men, where the hell is RedDawn, he's got to be past 50 as well.
