What Are You Complaining About?

When confronted about her complaining ways, Lucy proudly boasts that it is the only thing that she is good at. What about you? Are you a complainer? Are you a whiner? While it’s certainly nothing to be proud of, the sad truth is, complainers live among us.

In a LinkedIn survey of 17,000 members globally, respondents listed as their number one pet peeve “people not taking ownership for their actions.”  And the number one pet peeve among hiring managers is people showing up late for meetings.

Let’s face it; we all have pet peeves and something that sets us off. What about you? What is the one thing that really gets your goat? I’d like to hear from you! Just don’t whine about it. 🙂
