You typically won’t hear of a Cantankerous Old Coot tooting his own Cantankerousity horn, but today is different.  Cantankerosity is the topic du jour. (if you have to look that up get out now.  Go on, get out)

As we have stated before, Cantankerous is not just angry.  Cantankerous is not just being grumpy for grumpy’s sake.  It is not something to be turned on or off whenever the whim strikes.  Cantankerosity is the art of being Cantankerous.  Cantankerosity is a way of life.

To truly be cantankerous you have to look at the world in a certain way.  You have to be willing to let go of certain societal preconceptions about the population in general and just let it out.

You have to quit caring what other people think.  You have to be true to yourself and not worry about being polite if it interferes with being you.

You must be ready to say what needs saying right when you feel it, and you have to let it show on your face.  There can be no dithering, no half promises, no sitting on the fence.  Take a side and tell everyone else to deal with it.

Now being Cantankerous is some work.  If you have noticed, there are some links in this post that will take you to other posts that are lessons in being Cantankerous.  Feel free to go and browse those.  There is some great information that you will need if you want to become a Cantankerous Old Coot.

If you do not have time to click and read each post, they comprise the first volume of the Cantankerous Old Coots University Manual! For some simple clicks of your mouse, you can join our mailing list which will give you access to a finely crafted ebook that contains the first 5 lessons and a bonus lesson for subscribers only, all packaged in PDF format for your reading pleasure.  Plus, if you sign up this weekend, you will be eligible for special “subscriber only” discounts to future cantankerous products.

Join us in the Coots University and find your own way to say “Up with Cantankerosity!”


PS, the picture today doesn’t have anything to do with the post, but doesn’t the “Grumpy Troll” Sound like a great place to eat?  It would seem to have the right Cantankerous attitude


Justin is the young Coot with a Cantankerous Soul who continues to be educated by older, more cootish Ralph and Bob. His Cantankerosity is his own.
