  • Smith often complains of loneliness, but does not realize that people avoid him because like all curmudgeons he is bad-tempered and rude to others.
  • Though Green is a curmudgeon, he is very good at heart. People tend to overlook his goodness and remember only his bad temper and complaining attitude.
