Becoming a curmudgeon is easy;

1.  When your pants fall down, even when you have a belt on.

2.  When wads of kleenex supplant the dollar bills in your pocket!

3.  When you hit a curb.  (Of course it moved closer than you thought.)

4.  When dog litter bags supplant your wallet in your pocket.  

5.  When you feel rubbing on your leg you think it’s your dog, NOT your spouse.

6.   When you throw out things you had to have in favor of things you think you have to have. 

7.  When everything you want, you already have.  

8.  When you have a full time dumpster you actually use.  (Your kids want nothing of yours.)

9.  When your mouth corners become (or look like it) stained by chocolate.

10.  When your animal needs (your) assisted living.

11.   When you talk back to the TV.

12.  When holidays come too quickly.

 I lovingly submit this list after much deliberation!  Please feel free to add your own list!

I like this list.  I am rapidly becoming on of those.  Grumpy and old.  Sigh.  When your hands look like a wrinkled piece of chicken you know you are there.

When sitting on the floor is out of the question because getting up takes too much effort (and is embarrassingly clumsy.)

When the whole "old women are invisible" thing becomes something to take advantage of. 8-)

I have no idea what you're talking about.  I don't plan on being one. R&L

Not only is sitting on the floor right out of the question, but it's advisable to consider chairs (and toilets) before committing yourself - getting into is one thing, but getting up and out again is quite another.  (Nice soft sink-into sofas and chairs are no longer an option...)

You know you're a curmudgeon when you don't waste the time or energy to answer an idiot because you know it won't make any difference. ;-)
