I say tomato, you say tomato

A conversation this morning about different ways of handling complaints in a relationship (friendship, romantic, family, whatever) makes me wonder:

When someone does something that rubs you wrong, how do you handle it? What influences your decision to bring it up or sit on it? If you bring it up, does simply saying it address your concern? Do you make suggestions for change? If there's no change to be made, do you still bring it up?

When you're doing something that rubs someone the wrong way, do you prefer for them to bring it up? How does that work best for you? Do you want to hear complaints even about things you can't change, or only about things that you can?
