LIFE Curmudgeon: Harder than you might imagine

by D. Todd Clough

Being a curmudgeon is trickier and more challenging than you might think. Being a grump, grouch, complainer or Debbie Downer is a cake walk.

There is no responsibility that goes with being a whiner—they simply do their wha wha wha song and dance, annoying everyone within ear-shot. But the true curmudgeon hopes that somehow, some way, their opinion can make the world in which they live a bit better.
