  • The nouns 'ingrate' and 'malcontent' exist, but I'd call that person ungrateful. – Edwin Ashworth Aug 21 '14 at 9:49
  • Even I thought of ungrateful !! But I feel that ungrateful refers more to a person lacking gratitude !!! – Hirak Aug 21 '14 at 9:50
  • ungrateful [AHDEL]: adj. 1. Not feeling or exhibiting gratitude, thanks, or appreciation. //gratitude [Collins]: a feeling of thankfulness or appreciation, as for gifts or favours // thankfulness - warm friendly feelings of gratitude [Farlex] //content: adjective 1. in a state of peaceful happiness.

    So are we looking for adjectives or nouns now? And if there are some words that you already have considered but dismissed, write them down so people don't have to propose them all over again. – RegDwigнt Aug 21 '14 at 9:53
  • Unsatisfiable, which is beyond currently unsatisfied. – Drew Aug 21 '14 at 14:20

Consider "insatiable" (if he can't find satisfaction), "unappeasable" (if you can't ever make him happy), or just good, old-fashioned "greedy" (or, if he's a child, the juvenile equivalent: a "spoiled brat").

All definitions from MacMillan:

insatiable: always wanting more and never feeling satisfied

unappeasable: not able to be pacified, placated, or satisfied.; syn: implacable

greedy: marked by greed : having or showing a selfish desire for wealth and possessions
