How Not to Become a Crotchety Old Man Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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!

From the author of How Not to Become a Little Old Lady here's the companion, How Not to Become a Crotchety Old Man, a lighthearted celebration of the grumpy old men in your life. Author Mary McHugh's 250 hilarious truths about cranky, crusty old guys who would rather spend days trying to build something rather than read the instructions are coupled with the charming and humorous art of Adrienne Hartman.

If he's ever done one of the following things, it's a sure sign you have a crotchety old man on your hands:

* Stood in the middle of the kitchen and said, "Where's the butter?"

* Bought cans of broken cashews because they're cheaper.

* Yelled at news anchors on television.

* Cheated on his diet but yelled at his wife when she ate one MandM.

Perfect for Father's Day, How Not to Become a Crotchety Old Man is for any man who wants to ensure he doesn't slip into the crotchety zone. It also makes a great gift for that guy in your life who is a crotchety old man but will never believe one line in this book is about him!
