9780007189939: Grumpy Old Men: A Manual for the British Malcontent

At last! A comprehensive, handy guide for the misery-guts in your life.

Are you an irritable, crabby, cantankerous, malcontented old grump? Well relax, because you're not alone. Grumpy Old Men is an annotated, cross-referenced and fully illustrated manual for malcontents everywhere: the comprehensive Gripes of Wrath.

A compilation of gripes and grumbles, illustrated with blood-boiling images such as derailed trains and traffic wardens throughout.

The next time you find yourself enraged by pointless speed bumps, overcrowded trains, ill-mannered drivers, irritating adverts, inefficient customer help-lines, overbooked airlines, inconsiderate cyclists, slow-moving caravans, extortionate bank charges, persistent charity collectors, mindless hotel muzak, unfunny clowns or just plain miserable British weather, let this book take the strain.

The ultimate in stress-relief for the 21st-Century Grouch.
