The Grumpause. They complain about everything...the weather, politics, doctors, kids today and how they don't build things like they used to. They complain about the cost of everything and sort out the world's problems without actually doing anything. The next day, they start all over again...they've told so many stories so often, they can't remember. They are retired...they put in more time here than they did at their jobs. They mainly do this as an S.O.A...Spousal Avoidance Opportunity!
