10 Things You Should Stop Complaining About at Work

Adam Starr

March 01, 2010



Work isn’t perfect, right? But if you are lucky enough to have a job right now it pays to remember that millions and millions of Americans don’t think you have a thing to complain about. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the nation’s unemployment rate is hovering around 10%. Even more troubling, The New York Times reports that unemployed people are spending longer periods between jobs. In December of 2008, only 22.9% of people were unemployed for 27 weeks or longer. A year later, in December of 2009, a whopping 37.8% of people were unemployed for 27 weeks or more. That means that nearly 40% of our nation’s unemployed are going without jobs for nearly seven months.

Now that we’ve got some perspective, here’s a list of 10 things that you should stop complaining about at work.

    And if my employer keeps it so cold that I have to wear gloves in the office? Can I complain then?

    Great tips! I can dig all except the temperature. I'll complain until I'm blue in the face. Literally.
