Grumpy Muppets


While I was waiting at the eye Doctor today, I sat across from the two grumpiest people on the planet. They were complaining about everything. I know I'm not supposed to eavesdrop, but I couldn't help it, they had never learned about Inside Voices.
Should I have spoken up? Told them they were intolerant old geezers, and not everyone felt as they did? Or just memorized everything they said to repeat to Mr. Hunting Creek later (which is what I did.)
What would you do?

Probably I would do what you did. On the other hand, what I always want to do which is agree with them wholeheartedly and earnestly for ten or fifteen minutes until they are lured into a false sense of security and then BAM! Loudly throw something crazy at them that is totaly the opposite of everything they hold dear.

Only I don't do that because, you know, I'm from Minnesota. That would require, you know... conflict. We don't do conflict.
