The 11th Annual
Great American Grump Out

May 2, 2012

Spread the word! Facebook it, Twitter it, MySpace it, Blog it, Email it, and Share it with your friends...especially your grumpy friends.

The 11th annual
Wednesday, May 2, 2012.

The Grump Out asks all you sour pusses to suck it up and refrain from getting your grump on -- at least for 24 hours.

That includes no grumping, no frowning, no grousing, complaining, punching, slapping, hitting or killing. FOR ONE WHOLE DAY.

If you missed the 10th annual Grump Out on May 4, 2011 the good news is that you can continue to grump or do your grouchy thing. BUT, on May 2, 2012 you'll be asked once again to knock it off with your grouchy thing and put a lid on it --- just for 24 hours. (It's not for a lifetime, just a mere 24 hours. If you get your 8 hours of sleep, that means you only have to go for 16 hours.) After that you can go back to your old self again.

Why have a Grump Out?

Just take a look at the problems and concerns facing us today.

Unstable economy
Home foreclosures
Increasing loss of jobs
Health care
Rise in unemployment
Negative role models
Global warming
Gasoline prices
Too much traffic
Not enough time
We seem to be facing CRISIS after CRISIS, which is more than enough for us to be irritable and grumpy about.

Grump Out goals:
To help people better understand the connection between negative attitudes, stress and health.
To see America give themselves permission to be friendly, playful, supportive and loving for just one day.
To lighten up our planet and reduce unhealthy stress through humor.
To have FUN!
