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 

25/02/2013 at 20:02

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....

LOL I don't think JC

Try making an anagram from his name.

There are 2 I can think of.

One is unprintable.

Maybe he likes the initials? 

26/02/2013 at 06:15

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

26/02/2013 at 06:19

The phrase he used was offensive.

26/02/2013 at 06:24

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!

26/02/2013 at 15:57

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

26/02/2013 at 16:03

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

26/02/2013 at 16:16

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

26/02/2013 at 16:29

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.

26/02/2013 at 16:38

what would the world be without grumpy old men though?

26/02/2013 at 16:50

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.

26/02/2013 at 19:02

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.
