I know why old people are grumpy

Believe me I do. Now that I myself am getting older, I see why a lot of old people are grumpy! IT’s because you see the same shit over and over and you see people get upset about it and then nothing really happens and several years later, the same shit comes back.

Old people are grumpy because they are tired.

Tired of seeing the same cycle.

It’s why a lot of them are cynical and negative. I get it.

I am determined to not be that way. But I get it.
