Grumpy Bastids

Top ten reasons why narrowboaters are grumpy.

1. No Milk.
2. No TV/Internet reception.
3. Inconsiderately moored plastics.
4. Other narrowboats not waving.
5. Other narrowboats always waving.
6. Wife doing all the steering.
7. Poo tank full, and nowhere to pump out.
8. "Canya?" *
9. A favourite mooring spot that you are heading for is taken up by another boat!
10. Boat passes you, just as you were about to set off, and takes all the locks that were set ready for you by a boat coming down the flight!

  2. Ah! Grumpy on board...

    An old one is "Some mornings I wake up grumpy - but I usually let her sleep in"

    Milk... "Men age like wine, women age like milk"

    My choice would be "Canya" for years I thought it was a term of endearment then I noticed it prefixed all edicts.

    Today I am grumpy because I am stripping wallpaper when I wanted to lay a new floor on Rosie. Canya do that first!

    >>"Men age like wine, women age like milk"

    i don't know about that, Mike. the most sour gobs i've seen have been on men. "Canya" has been added to the list, though. Thankyou..

    oops... Sorry about that, Sue. Thanks for clearing us a nice path through the long grass, though. :)
