    Word usage

    Hello,

    What do we call a person who always complains or makes negative remarks. Never talks positive. (cribber?)

    Please help!

    Yeah, I thought about it. But, about a person who only complains. (Lets forget about "negative")

    In a seminar, I heard the speaker saying something "cribber". (I don't know how he pronounced it) Is there any word pronounced or has a close meaning to that word "cribber"?

    Thank you!
