(Funny post title, I know. But I recently read Silver Mess's article 101 Ways to Fail a Driver's Test, and this post was kind of inspired by that. )

And since February's theme is Live Counter Culturally/Be a World Changer, on a more serious note, complaining is a huge part of our culture. We whine and grumble and basically think our lives our over when one little thing is 1 percent not perfect. Like, what?

So think before you complain: would your complaint sound silly to someone struggling to escape persecution or someone working 18+ hour days to feed a family? Then it's probably not worth complaining about.
