Bitching. We are all guilty of it.
We bitch about our teachers and bosses for those snide remarks and all the rotten jokes we are forced to laugh at. We critisize our friends for being too talkative, too naughty, too naive, too boring or too promiscuous. We laugh at strangers for their poor sartorial sense, bloated figures or less than appropriate mannerisms. We scoff at the government for the bad roads and expensive goods.
Whether out of genuine frustration or to have a cheap laugh with friends, we bitch about someone or the other everyday. multiple times. We even bitch about bitching!
The gripes could also be a by-product of the universal aspiration to be 'ahead in the game'. It is about the survival of the fittest after all. An inherent hatred towards people better off than us is kind of inevitable. However noble we are, jealousy is in our blood. Blame the programmer.
Is bitching a necessary evil in some sense? Do the complains and the fine whines represent a desire for a better state? or the recognition of some missing element? Would you rather not bitch about within close circles than vent your anger in a more destructive way?
