MoneySaving Poll: Who's the complainer in your house?

Poll started 12 October 2015

Who's the complainer in your house?

Having just been on a roadshow for his TV show, Martin noted that when heterosexual couples were asked to complain, whether about faulty broadband or consumer rights, the man usually did the complaining. We wanted to know if this gender split is reflected across the UK.

Who in your household usually does the complaining?

    Try reading the last option again.
    If it sticks, force it.
    If it breaks, well it wasn't working right anyway.
  • I'm the complainer all the way. I'll be the one that has to phone to get things done, sort issues in restaurants etc.

    Nobody complains in my house ..... I'm not a complainer, I just whinge here (a lot). I just let the farquers walk over me, as a rule.

    I rarely complain and prefer to take my custom elsewhere.

    One of my wife's friends is a serial complainer so much so we refuse to go out with her anymore, as she will always find fault even where there is none and make a fuss.

    She is always bragging about the latest voucher of free meal she has had.

    We know someone like that. Every time we see her, she moans and whinges and complains about work EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. :mad:

    I have never in my life know anyone moan so much.

    After she has finished whingeing about work, she whinges about their next door neighbours, the children in the neighbourhood, the cat from across the road, her supposed health issues, her sister in law, her brother in law, and then back to her job! :mad:

    It's got to the point now where we dread seeing her. We have not gone to the pub for 6 weeks because we know there's a good chance of her being there. :(

    She really is a soul drainer.

    As for me and DH, we moan an equal amount LOL. Just about different things. (We don't moan a LOT though.) :D
