I hate being forced to dance at parties when I'm not in the mood. When I just try to sit back and relax, people think I'm being grumpy, and see it as their God given duty to prod me onto the dance floor. If I dare close my eyes to concentrate on the band and enjoy the music, then I'm really a target. And Heaven forbid someone just come over and start a genuine conversation...

Does this qualify me for membership?

Oh, that sounds so familiar. In the past I didn't dance because I chose not to - I'm not a great dancer, but then nor are most people. Now I don't dance because I can't. I still get people trying to drag me on to the dance floor whether I want to dance or not. They seem to be convinced I must be miserable or depressed if I'm not dancing.

I'm a portion of P.U.D.D.I.N.G., even with 'Cheerful' in my name. If I qualify, I'm sure you do, IrvWash.smiley - erm

No one should try to make anyone else dance, although I usually do dance at dances. I'm just lucky I go to about 1 anually.

I'm grumpy because i had peritonitis and had to have surgery, and while I was still really sick someone who i was just trying to be nice to decided that I was harassing her, and she didn't even care that I was incredibly sick and could have died

Well that's not good! Peritonitis does not sound fun, even without the accusations.

A slightly belated welcome to P.U.D.D.I.N.G., kalindra and IrvWash. smiley - sadfacesmiley - grrsmiley - hug You’ve both been added to the membership list.

I have to confess that I’ve been having a crisis of confidence over my suitability to run the P.U.D.D.I.N.G. page. smiley - erm It all stemmed from a smiley - football match I went to the weekend before last, when I sat next to an old man who was so fantastically grumpy that I felt like a little ray of sunshine by comparison. He grumbled about everything – the teams, the fans, and of course the referee. Finally the home team scored a spectacular winning goal that had everyone on their feet cheering and applauding joyously, including me – but not this guy, who was still sitting there silent and grumpy, shaking his head as everyone celebrated around him. I have to accept that I can never match that level of grumpiness - nor would I wish to.

However, you two make me feel like I still fit in here. I relate very strongly to what you’ve written. kalindra, I too seethe at the sight of bad spelling and misplaced apostrophe’s. smiley - winkeye Irv, I too have never quite seen the point of dancing, and as for management – I’d love to know what goes on in management training courses. I imagine that it must be something like the process by which people are turned into Cybermen in Doctor Who. smiley - tardis

I mean, surely you need one of those Emotional Inhibitor Chips the Cybermen get in order to sack people who’ve done nothing wrong and call it ‘downsizing’? Or to pester someone incessantly about trivia and call it ‘micromanagement’? smiley - steam

Don't feel too bad about being out-grumped. One of my clients here today is a bona fide hermit. He lives in a shack in the middle of the woods, and is completely land locked -- no roads in or out. His fully grey beard reaches down to about mid-chest, and this 70 year old has arms that look like they're made of iron.

Wow! Nobody's posted for 4 months. Have we all stopped being PUDDINGs?

Here's my latest grump. A few weeks ago we bought some bathroom stuff from a local major DIY store. Everything was in stock and we asked if they could keep it for us until we needed it. They said that wouldn't be a problem. Hubby went there yesterday to pick the stuff up, having told them in advance that he would be collecting it. There wasn't a single item there. It had all been re-sold to later customers.

We'd paid for everything - shower tray, cubicle, tile panels, shower, the lot - so technically what they did was theft. We paid, the stuff was ours. We particularly needed the shower tray for this weekend so the plumber could sort out the waste outlet for the shower. It's highly unlikely we'll have even that!

smiley - crosssmiley - steamsmiley - grr at the incompetent [email protected] who either didn't mark the stuff as allocated, or didn't check that the items they sold were actually available.

We got a call yesterday to say the bathroom things had been available all along, they just hadn't been able to find them. Everything was there, clearly marked 'Sold'. But instead of grouping it all together (it was one purchase, after all), it was dotted all over the store room. So the incompetent [email protected] were the ones who didn't gather the things together for easy collection.smiley - rolleyes So we're still a bit grumpy, just not as totally grumpy as we were on Thursday.

I'm still angry; I know that.

I'm grumpy because my smiley - headhurts and my ears hurt because I've been playing too much smiley - tennisball. I'm really, really bad at it, and I humiliated myself in front of.....5 or 6 people.

To add on to that, Valentine's Day is coming up. I won't be alone for it, but the best thing I can think of to get....someone.....is a small bottle of hand sanitizer. I'm just uninspired....like writer's block, only with smiley - gift-giving. I know to add in some smiley - choc, but apart from that I'm pretty much clueless.

Oh, just remembered; I went to a party a few days ago and threw up. Not from too much smiley - ale....I don't drink, but for whatever reason, I was pretty smiley - ill and it wasn't pleasing to anyone.

Raaaaaaagggghhhh!!!!!!!! (I'm sorry, I couldn't make it in time to the screaming forum.......although for the life of me I can't figure out what it's really called. Grr!)

And now, my stomach is hurting. I know my sorrows aren't very grand, but they still anger me.
