Cavil

John Calvin uses the word "cavil" enough that I had to look it up: "to raise trivial and frivolous objection."

As in, "When we went for free ice cream this evening, a lot of silly people cavilled to not go with us."

Nice use of the word "cavil". I am sure the teacher in our school would be impressed.
