What makes you grouchy?

Just curious. Lately I've been feeling.. blech. Feels like I'm in a constant state of fever and I can't sleep. So I'm just really grouchy. What about you guys?

Being in a bad mood makes me grouchy. Is that specific enough?

I still don't get my mood swings. I suspect there's some kind of cycle, but I haven't identified it yet.

dealing with problems at work in the first hour or two make me extremely grouchy. i like a smooth ship until my first break, no jerky bull****.

i also get really irritated when i'm trying to fix a part on a car or bike, fix a computer problem, or assemble furniture.

in any of these situations, people are advised not to talk to me.

Lack of food, when I'm tired, those are a few things I can think of off the top of my head

Actually you all think I'm this really sweet girl, which most of the time I am, but I have my days!!

At work I can't deal with what I call "stupid people" I have to work on that everyday. There are plenty of things that make me grouchy but I have learned over time not to sweat the small stuff.

someone trying to talk to me before I have coffee.
Someone not talking to me after I had coffee.

Someone answering "hum" instead of yes.
Someone who ask for more informations after I answered "hum" which clearly indicated that I didnt want to say anything more.

Yes! Coffee is key. I only want someone to talk to me before I've had my coffee if they're saying "I'm buying"

Whassa DNR?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm grouchy in the morning if I have no coffee.

I get grouchy if the load doesn't come in.

I get grouchy if my OCD kicks in and it starts to bother me.

I get grouchy if my perfectly detailed plans don't pan out.

edit: Oh! And don't touch my bikes or my cars. Literally. Don't handle them unless you are a mechanic.

Luckily my best friend knows how to handle it because I usually take it out on him. (Poor guy - he loves me )

When things don't work the way i want them to. When i have to keep passing people up because they decide to go under the speed limit. Also when my parents tell me to do something, but do not explain what is wrong with what i have now, so they end up yelling and so do i.

An inch or more of rain during daylight hours (today, probably tomorrow), strong wind (today, probably tomorrow), disappointing coffee and beer (I'm good at making both, so it doesn't happen often), and being cold in my own house (October-April, happens a lot).
