We all know people in our lives that constantly whine and complain about every little thing. A woman at work complaints non-stop and the overwhelming majority of her complaints are, in my opinion, completely idiotic. Improving your tuning out skills will go a long way. I generally ignore most of what she is saying but there are certain keywords that let me know if it's something I need to listen to -- mostly because it would be related to work.
I worked with a woman like that. It was a complete downer to hear her all day. I think people like that are basically unhappy. My tune out skills were honed immensely, however.
