Sloppy, Inconsiderate, Safety Hazard

Grumpy old man doesn't care how messy you keep your home.  It is none of my business.  But when you bring you slovenly habits to public places, it is my business.

This photo from the gym shows a DOPE (Doesn't operate properly in the Environment) just throws her gym bag in the walkway behind the treadmill she is on.

It boggles my mind that anyone can be this clueless and inconsiderate.   The gym is not your personal closet.  Aside from sloppy, my main concern is that this is a safety hazard.  If some old guy (older even then me) were to trip on this, it could be serious.

Pick up your stuff, DOPE!

Nothing Makes Me Grumpier!

I have finally figured it out.  The thing that pisses me off more than anything else.  The lowest form of scum on the planet.   The world's biggest DOPEs (doesn't operate properly for the environment), the most inconsiderate people to roam the earth.

Yesterday evening I was at the grocery store.  This DOPE (sidebar - it takes every bit of grumpy old man's self control not to unleash a string of disgusting, though accurate, expletives to describe this jerk) was walking around the store with his dog.  A Chihuahua on a leash with a service dog vest.

BULLSH-T !!!!                  

Uncharacteristically, Grumpy Old Man was cool, calm and collected.  20 years ago I would have been in his face.

How can someone be such an inconsiderate loser to take his dog to a food store and to put a Service Dog vest on it?  

You can't leave your dog alone for 20 minutes while you go shopping?

You have so little regard for your neighbors that you take a dog into food establishment?

You have so little concern for Americans with Disabilities that require service animals that you hijack their tools and denigrate their needs?

Grumpy Old Lady Joke

Just because I am grumpy old man doesn't mean I don't enjoy a good laugh.

An elderly Scotsman lay dying in his bed.

While suffering the agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite biscuits wafting up the stairs. He gathered his remaining strength and lifted himself from the bed.

Leaning on the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort, gripping the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs.

With labored breath, he leaned against the door-frame, gazing into the kitchen.

Were it not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven, for there, spread out upon waxed paper on the kitchen table were literally hundreds of his favorite biscuits, freshly baked.

Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of love from his devoted Scottish wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man?

Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in a crumpled posture. His aged and withered hand trembled towards a biscuit at the edge of the table, when it was suddenly smacked by his wife with a spatula.............

"Bugger off" she said, "they're for the funeral."

Incompetent, Inconsiderate, Broke Salespeople

Our website has a page where customers and prospects can request information about our company and products.  About every other day, some DOPE salesman wastes my time by filling out the form with his (or her) lame, incompetent sales diarrhea.          

Here is an example of what I get:
Om Kumar requested you contact them.

Email Us Form Completed Om Kumar +91(0)985-364-8077 Message/Question: Dear Sir/Madam,<br><br>I’m Om Kumar, from Grow Web Rank. I would like to disclose some facts about your website. I hope you won’t mind spending only 2-3 minutes to have a look at the following lines:<br> <br>. I found your website listed under the Google sponsored listing for which you pay a significant amount. But sometimes this sponsored listing or PPC creates bidding wars. You pay every time somebody clicks on it. It certainly hurts! Why not try organic SEO for your website and boost its growth?<br><br>. In PPC, you may get the sales but only after paying a certain amount every time and if you stop paying, then the sales will be vanished soon. But in SEO, leads and sales won't vanish even if you stop paying. Hence, make sure you enjoy this long-term benefit unlike PPC.<br><br>. 90% of users prefer natural results over the sponsored ones because these results are more relevant and valuable. So just imagine how many valuable customers you are losing by not focusing on organic search results.<br><br>By investing a few months in SEO, you can see drastic changes in your website internally and externally. We will show you improvements in your keyword rankings, link popularity, organic traffic and many more.<br><br>When visitors search for your desired keywords, do you want to be seen on the first page of Google, Yahoo and Bing or you are happy with your current position and sales? You can see the more powerful sites over the Internet are having more backlinks . A well planned and executed SEO can make these things happen.<br><br>After reviewing you website, I noticed some major on-page and off-page issues need to be fixed soon. For more information about your site errors, please respond to my email.<br> <br>Soon after receiving your email, I would be glad to provide you with the detailed analysis report of your website (free of cost) together with our company profile, and client testimonials. If you want, I can call you to discuss more about the same. Please suggest me your best time and number so that I can reach you without disturbing your business hours.<br> <br>I guarantee our team will give you successful results than others. Our main AIM is customer satisfaction. We are not like others. We have limited customers and make it sure they are really happy with our performance. It’s our pleasure that most of our clients remain with us for more than 1 year.<br> <br>You may be interested to do SEO with a Big Company but I can say they are taking money only showing their company brand to customers; otherwise the result part is Zero. Decision is yours.<br> <br>We wish you the best of luck and are looking forward to a long and healthy business relationship with you and your company.<br> <br>If you are not the head of the online marketing of your organization, please forward the email to the concerned person who can get in touch with me.<br><br>Waiting for your positive response…<br> <br>Best Regards,<br>Om Kumar<br>--------------------------------------<br>Business Development Manager<br>Growwebrank Pvt.

  1. Why would this guy think I would ever consider contacting him?  Even if he were skilled, his rape of my website and time would immediately disqualify him.   Does he have nary a clue that no sane person would attempt to read this crap?

    Sales is an honorable profession that deserves the time and attention to be done well.  This guy doesn't get it.
  2. Quit wasting my time you DOPE (doesn't operate properly in the environment).
