Don't complain pointlessly
sares2000 wrote in modernwisdom
There are times when it's right, proper and justified to complain. But all too often, people just whine pointlessly. They complain to the wrong people (usually whoever happens to be there to listen), or about things that are their own fault, or no-one's fault.

It's unattractive, unfair on the listener, and a waste of time. It undermines the whiner's credibility when they really do have a valid complaint to make. Most of all, pointless complaining is often a way of avoiding personal responsibility.

So don't do it. (I'm not complaining, like, just suggesting. :)

If you're reading this I'm not referring to you.
