What was the point of Complaining?

Once al-Ma’afi bin Sulayman was walking with his companion, and his companion turned to him, frowned and said, “How cold it is today!”

Al-Ma’afi said,“Have you warmed up now?’ (meaning by saying that)

“No”, he replied.

Al-Ma’afi said,“So what was the point of complaining? If you had glorified Allah, at least it would have been better for you.”
