Why do you you think we love a good moan/complain?
Does it make for good conversation?
Bond people due to bad experience?
We love to find a fault rather than positives?
There are many examples I could use .... But here's one
If you went to a luxury hotel that was that the bees knees had everything you could want but you realise that they forgot to leave your complementary toiletries. You would forget how clean the room is ect ...march right down to reception and complain. 😂
Is it just english/British thing? Not sure
I'm not that extreme it was just an example but some people no matter how positive a situation is they will always find a negative.
My mother in law had her bathroom done... It looked amazing tbh but when her husband finally saw the end result after the builder had finished, he didn't say how nice it was , he noticed a small crack in one of the tiles 😂
She called it moaning. He called it an eye for detail.
I think we do
There's a bit in one of the Gilbert and Sullivan songs (I could be showing my age a bit here!) that goes:
Doesn't your day seem lank and long when all goes right and nothing goes wrong?
And isn't your day extremely flat with nothing whatever to grumble at?
Hope I've got that right - I've typed it from memory
@kirstyfellows17 I think some people would be miserable if they didn’t have something to moan about. I have been smiling at some of the write ups on trip advisor. I was looking at holiday cottages in the UK, one place in particular had fantastic reviews, then someone said, there was a cobweb they had found. Someone else said, the wine and biscuits were a nice gesture but there was no milk? 😋
