Who does not know about this?

I can't recollect a single day where i did not see people around back bitching and cribing about something. Someone bitching about the boss, cribbing about the job, bitching about some guy or girl...blah blah blah.

Is this what we choose to do as an interest? Isn't there an alternative?

I think i am cribbing here. huh?

"Cribbing" has always meant "copying" to me, as in cheating on a test. And although "bitching" can indeed mean complaining, I've never heard "back bitching" used to mean anything. And "TP?" Maybe "PT", short for "passtime?"

So I am bitching about language

Probably he (or she I couldn't tell), meant backbiting?

Do you mean TP as 'Time Pass'?

The person's ego gets satisfied when s/he does backbiting or cribbing. Its a show off - s/he knows the right things than others do

Empty mind is devil's workshop. Alternative way is POSITIVE THINKING, looking at others strengths rather than weekness, pouring genuine praises about others, etc...Everyone in this world is unique and special, gifted with atleast one major strength, ignoring the weaknesses....

Don�t you know that popular jargons of people who have taken English as a secondary language are not understood on the net?
You better learn the right stuff from the native English speakers.
Understood?
