To complain, from Yiddish 'kvetshn' meaning to squeeze, to complain. Originally 'quetzen,' High German, meaning to squeeze.

Also as a noun for being a complainer.
"You'd better not kvetch, or eat chozzerai, You'd better not greps, I'm telling you why... Yenta Claus in coming to town!"

Ba humbug! Ebenezer is such a "kvetch." He refuses to allow the children a little fun!

(v) to complain, to make a complaining sound, especially whilst plopping;

(n) a chronic complainer
(n) the complaint itself)
(Definitely a Yiddish thing...]
Only misogynists think that kvetches are primarily female.
My dad was well known as King of Kvetches in our home.
He gave such a kvetch every time he came home from work!
And nothing compared to kvetches he put out from the throne room...
