The Stupid Things People Complain About

by Ally Batista

I hate complainers. Whatever issues you have going on in your life, please keep to yourself, because I’m over here being happy and I don’t need you ruining my aura. Some people have legitimate things to complain about, but these people keep these things to themselves.

Certain complaints really bother me. Negativity isn’t a good look for anyone, and it’s always those people with a really easy life who are complaining about the most trivial garbage.

You’re Single

Do you want to know why you’re single? It’s because you keep complaining that you’re single. Not one person cares (obviously, since you’re alone) that you’re sitting on your couch by yourself taking down a container of ice cream watching the notebook.

Guys who complain that they’re single are even worse. The number one way to lose your dignity and manhood is to complain that you’re single or that you want a girlfriend.

You have to go to work

Oh you hate your job? At least you have one. In this failing economy nothing angers me more than someone complaining about having to get up and go to work. Is waking up at 7AM too much for you? I’m sure there are ten people who would kill for your job, I’ll call them up. Unless your job is driving up and down the highway scraping road kill off the pavement, I don’t want to hear it.

You’re tired

Yes, you’re tired, but we’re all tired. We all have things to do, we all have responsibilities and we all love staying up until all hours of the night doing everything else we’re not supposed to be doing, instead of sleeping. This is no one’s fault but your own.

You're unemployed

Posting statuses on Facebook or Twitter stating "Another week of being unemployed" will never get you employed. Stop complaining that there are no jobs out there because the chances are you are most likely not looking hard enough. There is always some type of work out there and if there isen't start your own business. No one is going to feel bad for you and no one wants to hear it.

You’re hung-over      

If you are one of those people who constantly complain about how hung-over you are after taking four tequila shots the night before, you can’t hang. Us big kids are going to go do our own thing and handle our liquor, and you can take to the Internet bitching about your headache by yourself.

The thing is, everyone is hung-over after drinking. Even if you don’t feel the effects of being hung-over, you are, but don’t tell everyone about it. I promise you that no one could care less. Since the majority of us are feeling hung-over ourselves, the last thing we need is someone groaning every five seconds.

You hate your girlfriend/boyfriend

Instead of complaining about how much you hate them and how miserable you are being with them why don't you actually just break up with them? That's a good idea isn't it? Too many times are guys and girls complaining about how terrible their relationship is but are to afraid to just walk away with it. Grow some balls people.

Complaining about everything

Ugh, those people who complain about everything under the sun. It’s taking four seconds instead of two to twist off the cap of their bottle and they complain that nothing is going right. They accidentally drop a piece of paper and curse the Gods that they have to bend over and pick it up. Whatever this person can think of to complain about, they will.  You didn’t even know you could complain about certain things before this person did.

You will never see someone who is of the elite stature complaining. Instead they do something about it rather than just sitting there whining about it.
