The Secret Behind Old Men

My dad is getting old!

sayer de3la mayta7acha!

and everything is a big deal

o kela yt7al6am

Which is so NOT like my dad.

Growing up i never even heard my dad so much as raise his voice.
He always taught us to look at the bright side.

Well apparently my dad has been wearing his shades 24/7 cz nothing seems bright to him!


madre shasawe feeh

and dont even get me started on my mom!
hathi ele 9ij to7fa!

So why do old men get so grumpy !
Shouldnt they be older, wiser, CALMER?!!

lool! i think when that happens they need to go on vacation oo feel young again!

That seems to work on my dad!

I don't really get men!

or woman! I don't get anyone! :-p
bs madri, maybe because he isn't able to do certain things that he used to be able to do before... as they say, el kober shain...

maybe you should talk to him about it... or wait till you experience it yourself! ;-p

fact of the matter is your dad might be right .... snap something in two and all you'll find is poo .... the world is turning into shit around us .... sadly ....

July 23, 2009 at 3:52 AM  

well you are right my dad is turning 60 this upcoming Sept. Though he is a Doctor he should be calm and so on he was always been angry on every little thing. Which i hate but mom is cool she gets pissed on the right stuff which i accept openly :P and they get grumpy I guess cas they feel that they didnt do a lot yet and they want to do it thats what I think.

My dear blogger this is called "achievement vs. despair" and I remember studying it in psychology. In short, it means that men at that age when they realize they don't have as much life ahead of them (this is different from one man to the other in terms of age of realization) they start reviewing their lives to see if they have achieved all they wanted to do with their lives or not. It could be simple things they had in the back of their heads (learning a musical instrument, learning another language, being rich...etc). If they feel they achieved it they are very peaceful older gentlemen, and if they feel they haven't achieved them, and don't have the time to do it, they turn into grumpy men. I am sure you could read more useful articles on the web about it, but that's the short story. Good Luck with dad, and treat him right.

Shiyab likwait, as they get older they start acting like babies.

haha.. but maybe the secret for losing it is the feeling for losing it!

alah ekhaleehom lich, o e3eena when we get there!

July 23, 2009 at 3:35 PM  

its just a transitional phase they're going through -- and it is your turn to pay them back by exercising utmost patience with them .kabesh?????

ok let me answer.

I think it's the malyoon pills they're taking daily, and the actual physiological changes going on in their brains, the ageing process is big on the nervous system hufft

7abibi baba takes 5 pills per day; FIVE wala 3anhom, our physicians are killers mashala!

July 26, 2009 at 7:38 AM  

Its just one of those things! He has been working a lot and raising a family so you can't blame him too much for complaining after raising all the kids and working!

July 26, 2009 at 2:47 PM  

mine too :'-(

but I can blame them, getting old sucks

wise old ppl are REALLY rare those days

coz in the past being old is such a privilige!
everybody listens to u, obey u, care abt ur opinion, consult u in everything

Now adays every body is busy and the life is tough n' harsh

if ur not young n healthy , ur totally forgetable

only my openion

but u know what? they r getting grumpy but yer'6oon ebser3a fedaithom :P

July 27, 2009 at 5:55 AM  

Maybe he just needs a break...Or perhaps something is bothering him.

Have a nice chat with him...find out.

Then maybe you can help fix things and everybody's happy.

July 27, 2009 at 12:14 PM  

i told him we should go on vaca.. ma yabe!

he just needs a lil lovin

cz i said oboy dalo3
