Do a Grouch a Favor Day

When : Always February 16th

Do a Grouch a Favor today. Do it and make the world a better place.

Everyone has been a grouch at one time or another. Some people are seemingly grouches all of the time. It's in their nature. Others are occasional grouches, influenced by events in their lives, lack of sleep, the weather, etc. A few people are good at disguising their grouchy mood. But, they still need cheering up.

Look around for someone who is in a grouchy mood today. Then, do him or her a favor that will cheer up their day. There's plenty of grouches out there to practice on. Try it on all of the grouches that you see today, and watch the results!

    Should have read this before I went to get coffee at the local convenience store and got yelled at by the clerk for using the last styrofoam cup!!! I just paid and left quickly. I should have been a little nicer and at least thanked her for taking my money :)
