SwissSue, I wouldn't take up brain-space wondering   And it's no good reproaching any of us, he/she doesn't know us.

I normally whinge when I'm waiting at the bus stop. The usual whine is about the bus being late....being too early and I've missed it, the weather being too cold or too hot (not that it's been like that the past year), the price of food or a car parked right infront of the bus stop - very annoying. I have to admit my whinge in the garden is when I have stepped on some dog pooh (takes ages to clean my wellies, yuk!) and most recently back ache from over raking!

Good for you, Flower bird, not good to bottle things up. Before I could drive I used to have a lift home with a couple of colleagues. We called the car the 'moan-wagon' because we would have a good old grumble all the way home then it was out of our systems and we could greet our families cheerfully!

I know the feeling Flo, am usually exhilarated after a good moan....ha ha.

Jon Cob's rant was a good example of a whinge! He's probably fed up with reading moans and groans from idiots like me (I admit it) and is getting it off his chest. Fair enough - that's what whingeing is all about. And there's one plus - we all learnt how to spell whinge. Maybe his entry belongs in a MOB thread?

Jon Cob, I don't really mean to talk about you as if you were never going to read this thread again. Good on you for putting it to us! Keep up the good work.

But don't you see?  Whinging is all part of the fun 

Gardening Grandma

Exactly, Dovefromabove!  Yes, Jon Cob, the advice was good! but, admit it, you wrote it because you were fed up with the whingeing of others....

Try making an anagram from his name.

There are 2 I can think of.

One is unprintable.

Maybe he likes the initials?

No, no, girls (?) JC is fully entitled to his MOB moment. Same as us. Be kind!

Gardening Grandma

He's been insulted a few times on this thread! Keep your sense of humour in the face of all provocation. Yes, Dove, I know I haven't always done it myself, but I'm trying. After all, think of the fun we would have missed if he had not posted this thread!

Gardening Grandma

Oh drat, now I've killed off this thread. And it was so much fun!

jon cob relies on insults-it is what motivates him-check out what sick cheese means

FloBear

GG, I think you did us all a favour, Can you kill it again please?

Sotongeoff, I just googled  it. I'm not much wiser - it means, apparently, something particularly nasty or something extremely cool. I do realise that it isn't very polite, but that's his problem. I was enjoying the spirited defence of whingeing.

Flobear, you are probably right. Consider it killed.

Gardening Grandma

My point exactly, Jess! JC doesn't seem to have seen the funny side, but the rest of us can enjoy the joke.

i don't whinge because I can only remember the good things.  a friend asked me this morning how my garden was last summer.  i replied it was super - I had such a glut of strawberries I am still eating them.  only after she had gone did I remember the complete absence of Bramley apples which I normally have tons of.

Gardening Grandma

That's a blessed turn of mind, Happymarion! I can remember everything negative that has ever happened, but at least I can laugh at most of it.
