That is a lovely positive spin Piratelvr
If only it were true with the ones I know. They are miserable, jealous, mean people who tend to make those around them miserable. With my relative, everything someone else has is a personal slight to him because why do they haave it? Why don't I haaaave it? He has a good job, beautiful wife who worships him, wonderful kids, he is about to be a grandfather and all he does is whine. He calls out his ex wife (15 years divorced) on FB for no reason other than he is spiteful, his oldest son has obviously cut him off so he calls him out on FB saying some nasty things, he calls me out on FB because I do not respond to him one bit, he cries on FB about how expensive it is to put his DD in a very pricey activity and how he needs to ask for money to do it (it is so not a necessity at all and the kid is 5), he whines about everything instead of looking at what he has. And call him on it? The amount of whine flowing is amazing for an adult man (he is in his 40's). And if someone posts that they had a bad day (just something general like 'Glad this day is over) he starts whining they are soooo lucky because his life is sooooo bad.
How about people who post political rants on Facebook? One friend of mine posts links to stuff and rants about it and doesn't seem to care that this could prevent her finding employment.
Sounds like relative...he puts up some pretty radical stuff that is very anti government (he can have whatever opinion he wants) but numerous of us have remarked privately that his job could be seriously put in jeopardy due to some of the things he says. Or as my one relative remarked "Wonder when the secret service will knock on his door?"
