My DH has never been a bundle of laughs but as he approaches retirement age (and thus will be around me even more) he seems to complain constantly about everything and acts as if everyone else is out to make his life as difficult as possible.
Some examples being car going into garage then when he chases it up they haven't yet got the required spare part or similar excuse, ranting because he's received a phishing email from someone pretending to be his bank, it's raining when he planned to something out doors etc etc etc (none of these things would really raise a comment from me let alone a swearing rant)
If i posted this on Mumsnet I would probably be advised to 'leave the bastard' but after 30+ years that seems easier said than done - and obviously I wouldn't then be going out into the world alone expecting an exciting career and new admirers as someone younger might.
Also many of my peers seem to have DHs becoming similarly grumpy.
Any views out there, is it just me and can I change him? should I put up with it?
