ugly whine

Howdy all,
just curious if anybody else has an ugly whine that sounds kinda like the belts pulling the first time they start their car for the day. I'm just curious if it's a real problem or if it's nothing more than the belts needing to warm up or what. Any info would be appreciated.

my car does it too, and Nick told me his started doing it as well.

heres what i think it is.....if its in your garage and no one around it, it doesnt do it, if you go to a car meet or are starting it up when a good looking girl walks by, it whines
