    Cool complain or complaining

    Hello!

    Are we supposed to use the present simple or continuous in this case, please? :

    (In a restaurant)

    Customer: Our lettuce is dirty.

    Waitress: I'm afraid there is a mistake. Nobody has complained. You are the only ones who are complaining/complain.

    Thank you
    Will
