Is it rude to complain? I was criticized at Thanksgiving for complaining about things I knew could not change. And yet, I bond with people over areas of common complaint.
For instance, my coworker and I complain about our boss. I didn’t really like this particular coworker until we confided in each other about our extreme dislike of our boss. Who, by the way, is the owner’s son.
