My Bad Habits...

I pick my spit ends. Obsessively.

I bite my nails.

I cut my toenails too short.

I am loud.

I thrive when I'm surrounded by clutter (to my husband's dismay).

I avoid confrontation and things will escalate and only get worse.

I yell at other drivers (because I know way more than they do about driving).

I bite my tongue. I know, I know. WEIRD. This is my worst habit for many reasons...but especially because multiple dentists have told me that it will cause cancer. I have gotten better. But I need to quit.

I do NOT share food. I need to write a whole post about this. I know my old roommates are laughing out loud as they read this one.

I avoid returning voice mails.

I tend to flip out in stressful situations.

Anyone else partake in any of my bad habits? Or is the other way around and my habits are on your list of pet peeves?

  5. I can be really loud too. Especially when I get excited. I also tend to talk extremely fast and people can't understand me. This can be a problem.

    I don't flip out when I'm stressed, I just try...not sure which is worse?! haha

  6. I do NOT pick my split ends... heck, I don't even know if I could find them.

    I am extremely LOUD. I can't help it. It drives my boss NUTS at work.

    I like to share food but only on my terms... if you take food without my imaginary permission - watch out!

  10. I really don't share food either. I will cut you. I don't do well with family-style meals at restaurants. I always get nervous that there won't be enough. I feel your pain.

  11. I can pick my split ends FOR HOURS! God help strangers sitting next to me on planes because I can pick those suckers from L.A. to N.Y.C. without stopping - I'll get up to pee and leave a trail of hair in my wake.

    I am also excessively loud. This was always a remark on my report card as a youngin'.

    Aaaaaaaand NO FOOD SHARING for me either - Evan always orders the same appetizer-salad as me because I am the Best Salad Chooser Ever (secret talent) but I will refuse to share it with him so he has just learned he better get his own!

    and I also avoid confrontation as much as possible!
    And I leave my cloths all over the floor....whoops!

  13. I don't pick my split ends, bite my nails or bite my tongue, but I do everything else that you do.

    Spooky? Or, perhaps it's a sign of friendship fate?? :)

  14. I also hate checking voicemail, and had no idea that biting your tongue causes cancer, weird! You're not alone in those habits though I'm sure:)

  15. Don't know how familiar you are with Friends, but I had a flash to the episode where Joey freaks out and yells, "JOEY DOESN'T SHARE FOOD!"

  16. Ditto on the avoiding confrontation, yelling at other drivers, and flipping out in stressful situations!

  17. I avoid confrontation too! I hate it! But then I let it boil up inside of me and when I do comfront someone it tends to be worse then it needs to be. Sigh. Need to work on that.

  18. Long toenails are so icky. I cut mine way too short, too, ha!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I curse when I drive.

    I don't do the toenail thing, but I tend to avoid shaving until I absolutely have to.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love this post. I know it's old, but I just saw this and had to laugh at home many bad habits we have in common! I'll take the toenail one further, I tear mine off way too low. It hurts. But I can't stop!!

    I also don't share food. My blood will boil if someone pulls food off my plate.
