"It's not fair," so how do you respond?

If you have kids – it is a pretty good bet you probably have heard “it’s not fair” but this is not limited to home as we hear this at work as well. The user is attempting to flag something they perceive is a problem so is it really an issue? To respond some may just ignore, others become combative, while some decide to shut the person down but there are others who take the time and effort to get this resolved. So – what is your go-to approach to “it’s not fair” and what does it do to your long term relationship with this person or kid?
