What does GOM stand for?

Grumpy old man

Picture this. You’re walking down the street and you see a grumpy old man. He’s not just any kind of old, but the kind that’s hit the ripe age of 65 and is officially a senior citizen. That my friend, is a GOM – a term used to describe an irritable, cranky old man.

Now, let’s say his name is George. George isn’t your average elderly gentleman. He’s got a bit of a chip on his shoulder and isn’t afraid to let you know how he feels. That kind of behavior is what earns someone the GOM label.

So next time you see a man like George, remember the term GOM. It’s a quick and easy way of summing up his grumpy, cantankerous nature. Just remember, it’s a slang term, so use it wisely!
