Facebook: How to Channel Your Inner Grumpy Cat

Some people naturally understand what others want to hear, and then either have no fear or no shame in saying it. There are those who can always strike a balance and share every detail of their beautiful, perfect lives. It’s great to be balanced (especially if you work from home), but today I’d rather talk about Grumpy Cat.

Everyone loves Grumpy Cat because she tells the truth, and the truth shall set us free. So here are some ways you can be set free.

Share Small Grumpy Moments

Don’t you hate when you haven’t had enough sleep? Your bed is lumpy and your pillow mysteriously disappeared during the night? That’s awful, right? Or your glass has a chip in it. Or maybe someone looked at you the wrong way–grrrr!  So many perfectly shareable grumpy moments. How can you choose just one?

Be the Opposite of Perfect

People like to hear about those less-than-perfect moments. Moments such as the day your toddler bit you, the fantastic lemon tart you made except you used baking soda instead of flour, how after you drove away from getting your new car washed and detailed and filled with gas, you forgot to remove the hose from the tank, or how your cat fell asleep on a pile of grapefruit. And they want pictures.

Be Real

Maybe you do have the most gorgeous house in your entire city, county, and the world. But if that’s all you share, people may get tired of hearing from you, and hide you or report you as spam on social media. Not every moment is perfect, and some of the better moments come when you least expect them. Like turning away for an instant, and falling into your lovely pool and ruining your Coach handbag. (Now that’s the kind of moment we’d like to see!) Share proudly, and often.

Have a Little Fun with Tagging

How about tagging some sneakers with the names of all your friends? Or something even more inexplicable, such as a sad dog looking out a window? It’s imperative that whatever object you tag has nothing to do with your friend whatsoever. Grumpy Cat would be so proud. Or, better still, jealous.

Forget About Saying Nice Things

What is it that everyone is thinking, but no one has the guts to say? Say that. If you want to learn to use good manners, that’s not the subject of this post.

USE ALL CAPS

THERE’S JUST SOMETHING, WELL, LOUD ABOUT CAPS. YOU BARELY EVEN NEED ANY EXCLAMATION MARKS WITH ALL CAPS!

THE END

  1. THIS IS GREAT.
    (just kidding)

    It is, though, a good post on giving us permission to be human.
    Thanks for linking back to my post, too.

    • Hahaha! Did you mean to say “This is terrible?” THAT would be funny!
      I’d rather see real people, having real moments, than people being all perfect each and every day. Thank you for commenting!

  2. Carol,
    I’m loving your blog! I love this post! I’m so glad and thankful that you commented on one of my recent posts because it reminded me to come on over and check out what you’ve been writing on. Do you post your blogs on your FB wall? I would think they would come up on your wall, but I don’t see them? Maybe I am doing something wrong. At anyrate, I really love this post. You write with such good construction and sense of humor. And even though I am not a cat person, I LOVE Grumpy Cat!! May we all allow ourselves permission to be grumpy. Or as my friend says, a “poopey pants” LOL. Love and miss ya! Come to my Ladies with Laptops some time! 🙂

  3. Our favorite part: “Forget About Saying Nice Things” — we’re on a mission to help. Thanks for the great content, Carol. Cheers!

    • Thank you! Grumpy Cat really does give us permission to channel our Inner Grumps and add a human element to our lives on social media. I appreciate your taking the time to comment!

      Carol
