Whinge – verb - Australian informal – to complain, whine, cry in a fretful way.
We’re barely four weeks into 2012, and the whinging is already in full swing. Any gratitude for the birth of Christ, the miracle of Hanukkah or the start of the NBA season seems like a distant memory as people have taken up their favorite past time of bitching about everything that’s wrong with their lives and the world around them.
The year may be new but the sea of steady complaints hasn’t changed – vacation went too fast, my relationship is off, work sucks, life is hard . . . cue soundtrack: wah, wa wah, wa wah. Well, stop your bellyaching -- a bit of analysis of “the whinge” can put the proper prospective on everything.
