What are a lot of common complaints?

I am in and Improvisation group, and my usual character is really rude and complaining. I need some really good complaints for my acts, and I have had some trouble coming up with some on my own. My character is a female.

The price of clothes, makeup, shoes, gas. Rude sales clerks, waiting in lines, slow moving traffic, drivers that cut you off, getting a ticket. Other women flirting with your boyfriend/husband, kids leaving a mess in the kitchen/bathroom/basement.
Sisters, mother-in-laws, nosy/noisy neighbors.

Well you only just updated it with the gender so don't be rude and put an exclamation mark. Not going to give you any suggestions now.

I didn't say that...

Yes, I updated the question, but I did not "exclaim" anything. If you had a problem with the exclaiming, take it up with Me24eva. But just chill. I don't need your suggestions if you don't want to give them.

Oh, my mistake @samibrio, I didn't look that it was a different person who said that.

I would suggest you make her very self-centred. If other characters are having an issue, make her say things like
"I really want you to feel better soon, you don't realize how your complaining affects me"
Possibly make her not listen to the other characters so much, just have her say her own things about herself, if another character has talked for a while. Don't make her butt in, just be thinking about herself if she gets disinterested. Have her tell them how stressed out she is, and that they have to change, so she doesn't feel so stressed.
Make her tell them how it worries her, that they are not better than they are, because she feels that they can be better.

I hope you can come up with some exact phrases to say, I think that this persona would suit the rude and complaining part though. If you can put yourself into this mindset.

People that want to talk to you on bus/train. People that stand too close to you while in a checkout line. Loud cell phone talkers.

I would use things that wouldn't bother normal people, if your character is rude. Example would be " The manicurist was griping because her husband's in the hospital and she can't pay the bills." and I'm like" Can you hurry up I got a hot date with my Divorce lawyer." She would complain about petty things or be unfeeling about others misfortune because it slightly affects her perfect, self-centered world. I understand this may be more difficult but I believe it is what is called for by the way you described your character. Good Luck, hope you nail it!
