I don’t know where it comes from but there is a trend of complaining and just so.
Many of the people I know, some friends included, would just get along to complain. You greet the person and ask “how are things”, “how are you” and other phatic expressions to hear people go on and on telling you how life is unfortunate. Then they look at you expecting you to complain also. If you do not complain, you are in discordance with your circle, so I came today to help a bit.
If you cannot remember anything to complain than the fact of hearing complaints (what may be unsocial of you, sorry…), I thought of a list of bad things that insist in happening to many of us:
- My land telephone has only five different ring tones and I am tired of them;
- The ATM insists in giving me $ 50 notes and people insist in not having charge. Where is all the charge in world going to?
- The taxi driver doesn’t stop talking, I think he means to go slower and get more money from me.
- When I forget my mobile home, people call me a lot, when I carry it nobody does so.
- It is too cold home that my butter is hard out of the fridge.
- The butchers are loosing the ability to make perfect meat cuts.
- It is hard to find a dress maker and I have to wear the same clothes as everybody.
- My cat wakes up too early everyday.
- The housekeeper fee is too high.
