SOC Sunday--STOP Whinning

I have this friend at work who 'tells it like it is'!  I wish I could be like that, I wish I could 'tell it like it is' and say what is on my mind about the way that you are behaving.  But no, I don't, I keep quiet, walk away and then vent in my head or to someone else.  "Why does so and so have to whine and complain so much?"  Why can't I 'tell it like it is' to that person, to their face?  Here it is, if I could I would say the following to that person:  "Stop whinning and complaining! Really!  If you don't like it so much then go to 'boss' with ideas on how to change what you don't like.  You have a choice.  Keep complianing and be unhappy, or do something about it...generate ideas on how to fix the problem, move on or leave.  Really!  You would be so much happier, and so would everybody else?"  There I said it, to you, my friends, not to the person who needs to hear it.  Better than nothing?!  Practice for when I will say it in person?
