PostHeaderIcon Cara: 3 C's - Complaints

Oh, wouldn't the world seem dull and flat
with nothing whatever to grumble at?  
~W.S. Gilbert
Complaining. We all do it. Some more than others. I like to refer to mine here within as "grr's" or "grumblings"...makes them sound a little cuter. But complaining nonetheless. I do try though not to make many posts about complaining. Sometimes I do need to vent (again cuter than "complaining") about things. Maybe sometimes it's to validate opinion on things like orangutans for example.

We definitely complain with our peers. We moms complain with each other about mom stuff. We complain with co-workers about work. We even complain with a stranger on line in the store about the weather. 

Maybe complaining is cathartic. We complain. Someone agrees. We know we had the right to complain about that because it was stupid, annoying or rainy.  

Unless you are chronic complainer I think it's OK. I used to work with someone who all she did was complain...every single day. She was tired, sick, had a headache, too much work, it was too hot, too cold, too Tuesday. I would have to restrain from smacking her. That kind of complaining is over the top. 

So if you need to vent to your friend, or your co-worker now and again I think that's fine. Vent, gripe, growl, grown and grumble. 

But remember to smile, and look for some good in everyday. We can't complain all the ain't all that bad!

The worst grumblings are my boy's after-school grumblings! Ugh! I guess that's what the best of friends are for - for letting your grouch in a tirade - and then laugh with you!
