remonstrate about (someone or something) (with one)

remonstrate about (someone or something) (with one)

To plead or argue (with one) in protest, objection, or complaint about someone or something. I spent the entire day remonstrating with the manager of our hotel about the terrible quality of our stay. Instead of spending so much time remonstrating with her, you should take a moment to explain how she could do the work properly in the future.
