  • If someone looks grumpy and you tell her that, you might get a truly grumpy response. If you know her well enough to say anything at all, you might be better off trying something like, "You look unhappy. Is something going on you want to talk about?"

  • Depends on who the person is.

  • Better question would be why do you think they look grumpy? It would better if you just asked them how their day was going. They may just be thinking or have a headache etc . I have had people ask me this question several times when I have not been grumpy just really in a deep thought process. I always thought it was a little rude but if someone asked me, how is life treating you today? I would be more inclined to tell them great or if I were actually grumpy I may let them know that life wasn't being so nice to me. Remember what they say about the word assume. Never assume because 9 out of 10 times you will be wrong in your assumption.

  • Well it is going to depend on who ask me and how they ask me. But if I am grumpy they may get an even grumpier response lol
