My Annoying Habits

Wednesday 26 September 2018

Do you have habits that really annoy you or really annoy other people? I do. I definitely, definitely do.  I was really excited to write this blog post because I am sure most of my friends were looking forward to me owning up to all my annoying habits. But now, sitting here, writing it, I am have found that actually most my habits annoy even me. 

I leave my rings EVERYWHERE

Like most girls in England, I buy my rings from Primark. Meaning they are cheap and they usually turn my fingers green over time. However, for the first like two weeks of wearing said rings, they look pretty good. Although at the end of the day, they are super cheap and I class them as 'throw away items' meaning, they are easy to replace. So, I tend to leave them everywhere. When I say everywhere, I mean it. The other day, my best friend/room-mate saw a spider in her bedroom, so naturally, we tore it apart. In the process of moving every piece of furniture around her room, we moved her bed and guess what was under there? No, not the spider. Three of my beautifully cheap rings. Baring in mind, I have never slept in her bed, she thought that was kind of strange. So yes, in short, leaving my rings everywhere is definitely one of my bad habits.

My Addiction to Coffee

This doesn't sound like a habit does it? But let me tell you, it could definitely be classified as 'annoying'. If my housemates or friends had a pound for every single time I said I was ill when in reality all I needed was a coffee, they would be rich by now and able to buy me all the coffee I needed/desired. 

Chewing Plastic 

This annoys my boyfriend to no end. He hates it when I chew plastic. Okay, let me explain... I love plastic. You know at birthday parties they usually have those plastic confetti pieces on the table? Yeah those, I love chewing those. And not only does it make the most awful noise in the world and my boyfriend will physically open my mouth to remove the remnants, but it also probably isn't very good for me. But you know, everything in moderation.

The Way I Pronounce Things 

Okay, shout out to all my friends that listen to my talk every day. I literally can only pronounce a handful of words and no of them are intelligent. We live in Farnham, a beautiful town in Surrey and usually, we travel to Aldershot to go to the cinema or to dinner. However, I don't pronounce it Aldershot, I pronounce it Elder-shot, which is in all regards, wrong. So wrong in fact, that sometimes people don't even know where I am referring too. Which is excellent, as I am a creative writing student and I can't even describe where I actually am . Also, actors names is another channelling feet for me. I usually confuse actors first names with other actors second names and then again, no-one knows what I am talking about. So the question is - how have I ever actually communicated with other humans? 

I am sure that I have plenty of other annoying habits that drive my friends, family and boyfriend crazy but what I want to know is, what's yours? What are your really annoying habits that are so irritating, that sometimes, they even get on your nerves? Let me know in the comments!
