I’m apparently a grumpy person by nature.
At least that is how I come across.
I do get rather annoyed when people ask me if I’m grumpy, and thus I advice people never to ask that question. It’s no success.
If I’m grumpy, you know. There it’s no point in asking.
If you’re in doubt, and want me to get annoyed, feel free to ask.
If not, keep quiet.
You won’t get a sensible conversation afterthat question anyway.
And I haven’t even got the decency to feel guilty.
