The author of How Not to Become a Little Old Lady returns with a guide to recognizing the signs and symptoms of being a grumpy old guy!

A crotchety old man decided to wash his sweatshirt. He threw it in the washing machine and yelled to his wife, “What setting do I use?” His wife asked, “What does it say on the shirt?” He yelled back, “University of Texas.”

If this man sounds like someone you know, chances are he’s a crotchety old man! We all have a crotchety old man in our lives. Maybe he’s your father, your grandfather, your brother, your husband—or (though you'd never admit it) even you! Crotchety old men stand in the middle of the kitchen and say “Where’s the butter?” They buy cans of broken cashews because they’re cheaper. They yell at news anchors on television, and believe “You look OK” is a compliment. This lighthearted celebration of grumpy old men provides 250 hilarious truths about cranky, crusty old guys who would rather spend days trying to build something than read the instructions. Also included is charming and humorous art by Adrienne Hartman.
