i understand complaining when you don't get things to turn out the way you want them, too. what gets me on my nerves is people who complain about EVERYTHING. some people just love to complain. if you do something for them, it is never right. it's like they are looking for you to get it wrong just so they can complain.

When did you meet my Mother In Law? She is that way, she complains if its raining, she complains if there is a cloud in the sky, she complains if she has one ache, she complains if you look at her wrong, etc... I mean the list goes on and on. I have never met anyone that complains as much as this woman in my entire life!

I really don't like complainers either, or whiners. I think these two are somewhat related, if not close cousins. I do understand that there are times that we have to complain especially if there's something good that can come out of it or something can be improved. But if it's all complaints and whines just because the person likes doing so and it makes her feel better, then I guess I don't need to hear any of it. We really can't avoid encountering these kind of people, they're everywhere. I would rather do something about it than waste my time complaining.

Hi Moon Working with seniors for many years some were sweet and some were just so hard to please, so I know what you mean. I remember one lady had came from Hong Kong and she had a servant her whole life, So when she changed countries all she did was complain and say I wish I had my servant now that I am old instead of when I was young. This lady had come from wealth and I explained to her how lucky she was most people never have servants in their entire lifetime. She just looked at me like I had two horns in my head.

she is just mad because she had to give it all up and go into a home. that's her problem. that's most of their problem. i won't beat up on them too much. they are old people and we all have to be old one day.

I know how you feel, I come from a family of complainers. I hate it so much because it just creates a negative atmosphere whenever you're around people like that. I dislike it so much in fact that I choose to avoid most of my family since I'm old enough to do so now.

These people have learned the secret of controlling others. What they haven't learned is why so many people just avoid them. One smile, could change their lives around. Of course most of them would have to hold that smile a long time and the rest of us might just stick around to see if it a real smile or a fake one.

you are right about them learning the secrete of controlling others. when people are being bossy and complaining, you feel like you have no choice but to sit there and listen to it. if you combat it, that's what they are looking for. they are only going to escalate it.

I understand what you mean.Luckily, I was brought up by parents who never complained about anything and my mother taught me it was necessary to be contented in life. My school also had a major role to play.My son never complains and my husband also does not complain.Generally there is peace; if someone complains we don't like it .Attitude of gratitude is very important in life.This is what keeps us going.Let these complainers keep on complaining.Turn a deaf ear to them and get on ! Some people really love to complain.I have heard one person complain if the weather is hot, cold, mild, overcast and what not! It is quite irritating.

the thing that annoys me is that they know you are irritated by that and they do it anyway. like they want to make you as miserable as they feel.

There are many people who love to complain about everything and it's just so nerve breaking to hear all about that.So i think using a right attitude is so important and it determines how we live and how we treat the world,i'll never do that to ruin my life and to be an optimistic person also affect other people.

well, i am not a very optimistic person. i tend to be very pessimistic, but when people are trying to make you happy and you know that, then why complain?

For me, I don't think they are complaining they are just trying to grab the attention of others for him to be the center of attraction for the day.

Some people just thrive on complaining, complaining becomes there way of life, nothing makes them happy and they have to find something to complain about, these people are both hard to please and hard to get along with, they bring you down and they are full of negativity. You just have to leave them to stew in their own juices because you can quite literally kill yourself trying to please them!
