    Default complain or fuss

    They were people who really let themselves go on high days and holidays, not likely to ______ about anything left over.
    A. complain B. fuss

    What does the sentence mean? I don't have the slightest idea!

    Thanks for paraphrasing!

    Jason

    Default Re: complain or fuss

    (Not a Teacher)

    Is there any context for this sentence? Without any context, I would assume the sentence means that these people go all out when celebrating holidays, and don't mind if there is a lot of food (I presume that the sentence means food) left over.

    Both 'complain' and 'fuss' can be used here.
