The Question Club
Okay, I work at the YMCA. One would think that working at the Y would be pleasant; after all, the Village People made it sound like the greatest place on Earth. I have a huge problem right now with people complaining. They complain about the songs on the radio (too loud, too fast, I don't like the words), the shows on television (the Ellen talk show promotes homosexuality-yes, someone actually wrote this on a comment card), and even the free t-shirts that we give out (why do I only get two?). It's been awful lately, and I haven't been the only one who's noticed it; other employees are talking about how ridiculous things are getting. So, now that my fifteen-minute intro to the question is finished, I'll get to the actual question. Is there some Bible verse or poem or pretty piece of writing that basically has the message of be grateful for what you have and quit whining? I would prefer a Bible verse, but anything would be good at this point. I want to put said quotation on our display board in the entrance, then when people come up to the desk to complain about something, I'll gently remind them to think about what the board says (okay, I'll probably do it in a not-so-gentle matter, but can you blame me?). Thanks to anyone who can help!
