nobody likes a whiner

Whining is more annoying than a buzz saw, says a recent study...
In raw numbers, people made more mistakes per math problems completed when listening to the whines than any of the other speech patterns or noises (though the only statistically significant differences were between whining, the table saw and motherese).

And people completed fewer subtraction problems when listening to the whining, crying and baby talk than when it was completely quiet.
...that will soon be posted on refrigerators and in teacher's lounges all across the country.
