Icks: Whiners

Josh Huyg

I like listening to other people’s problems because I can guide them towards solutions. A complaint every once in a while about school work is good for the soul. However, constant complaining about classes gets old fast. It’s called whining. Toddlers whine when they don’t get their way and we tell them to stop because it’s annoying. It shows a lack of maturity and critical thinking because these problems often have easy solutions. We’re in high school, and we’re learning and being tested to solve complex problems. Finding the theme of Romeo and Juliet isn’t relevant to day-to-day life, but finding solutions to answer the question is a necessary and important skill school teaches us. Whining about not being able to solve a slightly difficult question doesn’t solve anything. If you want something to be changed, do something about it, don’t just sit there.
