Is complaining part of everyday life?

Complaining about different issues in life is everywhere and everyone does it. I think complaining is part of everyday life and every conversations seems to be about someone complaining about another person, or someone's internet provider didn't connect their internet correctly or someone had to pay a fine. At work i have people complaining to me pretty much my whole 12 hour shift about other co-workers. I thought we were meant to work together, not complain about each other. This person did this and that person did that, or didn't do what they were meant to do. Anyway what do people reckon, is complaining part of our lives?

I would say so. People complain about anything and everything. They complain about the weather. When its hot they complain, when its cold they complain. Some people are just never happy no matter what. I know I have one co worker who complains to me about everybody so I know she does the same about me when she is talking to somebody else.

@Happy2BeMe Well your co worker isn't the smartest person complaining to everyone about you. Eventually the beans are going to spill. Don't you get along with her?

@IlijaMarkovski I get along great with her and so does everybody else because nobody knows what she says behind their back. She is always nice to their face.

@Happy2BeMe so sneaky I have a few of my work colleagues who do the same. It's just gets annoying when they complain to me over and over again repeating the same words they have already mentioned.

I think that sometimes, it is legitimate to complain, but most of the times, it is such a waste of time.

@marlina Yes but not when you're talking behind the back about your friends or co workers.

@IlijaMarkovski I don't like when people talk behind another person's back.

@marlina Yes exactly it's very rude. If you have a problem with the person then tell them face to face and try and resolve the issue.

@ms1864 It doesn't take much for a person to complain.

@Bluedoll that's something we can complain about. We will always complain about this because if it's too cold we complain, if it's too hot we complain, if it rains some of us complain, if it's windy some of us complain.

It seems to be a big part of modern life. Perhaps we need a 'National No Complaining Day' but then, people complain about National Days so that wouldn't work

Complaining can become a habit that sticks with a person. Maybe they feel that by complaining their complaints will be fixed by someone else.

@Corbin5 Yeah but if you just complain about an issue and not willing to take action, then the issue isn't going to get resolved.
