Do you complain more or less..

I presume we are all over 50......

Do you complain more, now than you did when you were younger? Or less?

My son mentioned the other day, that he thought I complained less. He said it must be because I have everthing I need now and I don't have anything to worry about anymore.

I used to complain when I wanted a new car for instance. Now, I couldn't care less if I have a car or not. I don't think there is anything I need that I can't get.

Some people get real cranky when they are my age. Maybe it is pain that makes them like that.

I complain more effectively as I get older; I'm better at judging whether i'll get a satisfactory resolution or not. I'm quicker to praise too.

I wouldn't say I complain more but I do speak my mind these days, where I didn't before..

I've never been a complainer, and I'm still not one.
The situation has got to be seriously bad before I'll complain...

Re: Do you complain more or less..

My daughter has just started work as a Pharmacist
She has already come across all walks of life in the job of course..

She was in a reflective mood last night.
Suddenly out of the blue she asked..
"Mum...why is it that old people are either really, really lovely...or..."
I offered..
"Cantankerous old g***?"
Chuckling she replied..
"There doesn't seem to be anything inbetween does there?!"

I certainly complain if there is a need.
I compliment more than I used to.

Re: Do you complain more or less..

I freely confess that I complain more today than I did in the past.

That's because there is more to complain about now than in the past!

In my opinion, the best years were from 1979 to 1990, and I'm sure that things have got worse since then.

Why 1979 to 1990? I look forward to seeing who guesses the reason first.
