Could someone explain to me what an Idle Complaint is?
I have searched the web, but haven’t found any exact definitions; only example sentences that don’t give me anything. In the vocab, it gives a second meaning of grumble, but I’m not sure what the logic is between idle complaint and grumble. Intuitively, I assume it’s complaining without doing anything about the issue.
Could any native English person help me here? Thanks a bunch!
I’m not native, but the way I understand 愚痴 is that it’s when you vent about stuff that’s bothering you, like maybe after a particular hard day at work, etc… But just to vent so you’re not really doing anything about it.
I’ve never heard anyone say “idle complaint.”
That seems to line up with example sentences.
Seems pretty clear, thanks!
It seems nobody is really happy about hearing someone complain… Where’s the compassion!
