Things That Make Me Grumpy!

Recognizing what makes you unhappy – or less unhappy, more simply grumpy – is vastly important. As I’m about to demonstrate. Here’s a few things:

Here’s a few things:

1. Virtual medicine has its benefits, but if you’re relying on a doctor to diagnose you with something serious via Zoom where they have no idea who you are on the other end, I advise you to think again. Nothing good can come of this.

2. Leaning. I have a serious problem with people who lean. against. everything. I was raised in an environment of “if you have time to lean, you have time to clean.” It irks me when able-bodied people don’t stand up straight under their own power. Maybe it just resembles laziness.

3. Meetings that could have (read: should have) been an email. Anything over 60 mins loses value immediately. Avg attention span: 19 mins. Need I say more?

I’m not 100% positive what a “Ted Talk” is because I’m old and grumpy, but I think it would be accurate enough to say now – Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk. Kel Talk? Kel Calling? There’s work to be done here!

Now, get off my lawn.


I ask you –

How often do you rely on telemedicine?

Are you typically the meeting organizer or attendee?

I need a new catchphrase!

  1. Bonus points for the, “Get off my lawn” part.

    I don’t like to rely on medicine, so there’s no way telemedicine is an option. If I’m paying a ton for the services, they’re seeing me in my underwear. I’ll make them earn their money.

    I’ve been both the organizer and attendee, lately the attendee. You’ll know when I run a meeting–the food options are better.

    Your new catchphrase will only be valid if it is followed by a laugh-track. It must be 1990 sitcom quality.


    1. Somehow I knew this post would resonate with you!

      Food is a great meeting motivator. I’m currently planning one for mid-month and have been assured the food will bring a large crowd. If not, more for me!

      Laugh-track: in progress!

  2. Never tried telemedicine, don’t plan to! I am, however, a firm believer in the potential of tele-counseling. Meetings: I’m very often the organizer; lately I have been quietly on strike, waiting to see how long, if ever, it might take others to jump into the void. We shall see! I’m no good at catch phrases, sorry.
