And You Damn Kids Keep off my Lawn!

Why women smile on old age (and men just scowl) | Mail Online: "It will come as no surprise to all those wives who have watched greying husbands mutter into their cornflakes.

Old men are grumpier than old women.

A study of nearly 10,000 over-55s revealed that gender is the most important factor in deciding their quality of life."

Women, particularly women of that generation as they enter the endgame, are finally losing their Obligatory General Caretaker role, while the men, particularly same, are feeling increasingly useless and unmanned (the latter mostly physically). Or so I suspect accounts for a lot of the discrepancy in self-assessment of quality of life.

I know why men are grumpier. They have to live with women.

Hey, it's joke. I don't need a bunch of quacking dames busting my chops just because I made a goddam joke, okay? That's the trouble with people these PC days--can't take a joke. And turn the damn radio down!
