I hate listen to people whining about this, and hating someone about that. I just couldn't stand it someone simply complaining day to day, especially that is a man. I thought man should be easy - going, and not a whining little person. A co - worker of mine always complain someone about this and that, and no one ever make him happy. I am getting tired to listen to him everyday early in the morning. Don't you tired of that too?

Same is true for me too. I really dont understand why some people keep on complaining about each and everything all the time. They never get happy or satisfied with whatever you do. Its either their habit or their hobby, some do it in spare time and some do it all the time ;) They keep on crying and blaming and cursing all the time. I dont know why they are like that.

You are right there. These are people who do not even understand themselves. They are those who do not get satisfied with what is there. They do not get satisfied with what people do. They find faults in others and put the blame on them. They are the ones who do not own up their own faults. They are the people we should refrain from associating with.

I get irritated when I hear people complain about things too much. I also guard myself and watch if I am doing the same thing because I might also be irritating to other people. It's all the more irritating if a man is the one doing the complaining because I also think that they should be more easygoing.

That is what I thought too. I think man should be easy going and not nagging too much like other women. But, this co - worker of mine prove me wrong, and he is not a regular man. Everyday morning I came to work, and listen to his whining, and I am too exhausted. I have my work to focus on, and not the complaining department.

are we co-workers? LOL! i should say that it is a SAD FACT that people like you've mentioned exist in our workplace. lucky you who's got just one because i know that others have two or more. just imagine staying with them all day long five or six days a week, worse if you live together, too. whaaaaa!!! if i have only one, it's surely annoying but having two or three will make me sick already. i might find myself wearing earplugs most of the time when they're around. it's great to work with nice people. frankly speaking, people who are very meticulous or complains a lot about work or coworkers are those who are less productive. i'm speaking through experience. they better focus more on their work and just do their best in the job, compete and evaluate themselves. how about that? cheers! let's drop toxic coworkers! LOL

I can listen to complaining because sometimes I complain about things worth complaining about. However, excessive complaining will get on my nerves real fast. A little negativity is ok, but when someone gets to the point they complain or find a flaw with anything and everything... Yeah that does get annoying. Usually complaining to them about them complaining to you will solve the situation or change the subject.

Complain are here with us in every aspect of our life. As long as the complain is valid, then I would appreciate it. But some people complain just for the sake of complain. That would irritate me. People complaining about salary most often do not have a concrete basis about it. In my work I see lots of them. They complain that their salary is too low not knowing that other companies have much lower wages. We complain about the prices of the gasoline not knowing that other countries have trice the cost per litter of it. I do complain in restaurants when I see that the service or the food serve is not worth the money I payed. I complain too in government for the lack of education and good infrastructure like roads. I knew I had a valid complain because its my tax that my government are using for this. A worker who complains a lot is surely not a good one. Hopefully it will show in his/her appraisal and salary review.

There will always be constant complainers in this world and that is all they live for it seems! Thankfully I'm not in your situation! I guess a strong message needs to be sent out when someone is constantly complaining and they are getting on your nerves! They obviously cannot see the error of their ways! I think that it's important to complain about something if something serious has taken place or something is very wrong however, once the complaining has taken place then an end should be put to it! I get angry about a lot of things but I don't complain forever on the same thing! That's life, hopefully your own situation will improve and you will gain some peace somewhere down the line! Andrew

Yes - these types of people are the most annoying in the world. Don't disagree with them, it will make it worse. Just ignore it, that's what I do!

when it's a friend in need and he or she feel a bit depress I listen, cause that whining help my friend get something off his shoulder, but when it's just an acquaintance or a stranger, then that is irritationg and most of the times i found a way to tunes them down, so that way it's bareable

If it's the same stuff, I will tell him/her to stop and dn't ever say that to me again. It's so annoying to hear the same one talking the same thing again and again. Be patient and listen is just not my way.

Your co-worker sounds like a chick, are you sure he's not gay? I tend to avoid hanging out with whiners. They tend to be losers who will never go anywhere in life, bcause everything's never their own fault, it's sombody elses. they don't ever want to face their own inadequesies, so they blame someone else. These people are to be avoided because they'll drag you down to their level. You don't have any chance of pulling them up to yours. The occaisional comlaint is ok, though. After all, who among us never has a beef about something? Kind of like what you're doing right now. lol

never! and they sure ruin my day! specially from a man! if you are close enough to him i think you can ask him why he complain so much. i did it once to 2 friends from my previous work. they always talk about problems and even other people's problems and would criticize them..i got too annoyed because they wanted to include me on their discussions so i told them "why do you worry and complain on things that shouldn't concern nor affect you?" ofcourse, i think i offended one of them but atleast they rarely talk like that when i was around.

Hi Clorissa, It's so irritating listening to people who complain a lot with their lives, people and everything that is happening around. The sad thing is you can not get any suggestion or recommendation to have a positive result from all their complaints. They need to record themselves and listen to it so that they will hear themselves out and see what they will feel about it? i am curious about their reaction!

Who doesn't get tired of that? lol..If you complain for something's not right--it's OK, but if you complain all the time even for little things that doesn't need too much attention, that's not good. Having a co worker like that is pretty annoying. I would surely find a nice place to be away from him. What if you are already have trouble finishing things up at work or need to beat the deadline, and this annoying co worker keeps on complaining?? I can't imagine myself of things i am capable of doing or saying for that matter.Whew!!

Yes I can accept a complain only when the person is unable to solve the issue. But they should not make it a habit. They should solve their problem as far as possible. After all everyone has their own lives!

I smiled as I read your discussion. I am in a similar situation as you are. I have a male co-worker who, when you get near him, starts to tell you about things he doesn't like. He always complains about the goings-on in the office. He complains about how other co-workers are being afforded special attentions and favors. It seems to drag me from my "normal" self and "bring me into his world." I have since realized that it is a waste of time and a useless exercise to get into a conversation with him. I have since started distancing from him (if only for official transactions) because he had succeeded in his attempts to "sway" me to his side in the past.

Hi clorissa123. I also have several work colleagues whom I also consider to be whiners/complainers. They complain at the simplest of things about anybody/anything. I really don't know where do these people get the energy to complain all day long. Personally, I feel tired and irritated listening to someone complain over and over again. If I could, I would always do my best to change the topic of discussion. Worst, I would normally exit from the discussion the moment I saw an opportunity to do so. I feel like attracting negative energies when listening to these people's endless complains.

Same as you. I dislike these people. They owe all their bad luck to people around them and never try to think about what they need to improve, so these people will never make progress themselves and what's worse, the complaint raise bad mood and distrust in a team. They are not welcomed.
