Annoying habits you have, that piss other people off

We all talk about the things we like or we talk about 15 random things about yourself, but we have no thread that talks about our annoying habits.

I'll start:

Everytime I get in a car, if I'm not driving, Ill put on my headphones and listen to music for hours straight. Everytime people try to talk to me, they'll have to talk loud in order for me to remove my headphones, to then liten to what they have to say. Sometimes, I will go on "auto-pilot" and say "yes" or "interesting" to everything they ask me. This usually manages to piss off everybody I know, my friends, my family (especially my dad). I will evenually get yelled at, and I will then be forced to turn off my ipod. One day, it will simply fly off the car window.

So, what annoying habit or habits do you have?

I'm sincere and most ppl can't take it. Most annoying.

Re: Annoying habits you have, that piss other people off

When getting to know someone, I tend to ask them a lot of questions, which sometimes either comes across as:

- too interrogative
- a bit childish

though in reality, it just means I'm interested in them I guess.

I can understand this. Perhaps it might help if u explain the real reason behind ur questions


For me i think its my obsessiveness when it comes to work. When i have something to do at work, i worry about it a lot for fear it's not done properly so i check my "homework" out more than once.

I don't deliver work duties later than expected so it's not pissing others off . Not yet i guess, it's just that friends at work pity me and i guess i pity myself too especially when there's much work to do.

If you are conceited about your glory,why don't you feed the earth for a day?
and if you are conceited about your power, why did your desires control
you one day?

Yeah, I might do that. It would also be a good way of finding out how big their ego is when I tell them

Re: Annoying habits you have, that piss other people off

I'm seriously straight forward, no really, about my opinions and it comes off as abrasive, i think I'm better with it now. But the people I worked with this past year let me know, I don't mean to put people off. and because I never try to offend people, it's not a conscience thought oh let me censor myself so this person doesn't get upset and before the words are out of my mouth they are already upset. but it's only because I truly don't want to offend so it's never a thought that it might come out offensive, then I'm confused why that person has an attitude with me, and it just snow balls from there.

Re: Annoying habits you have, that piss other people off

I'm too sarcastic and then if I offend someone I then annoy them by repeatedly apologising way too much
Also my standard greeting is 'you alright' which I will use on the same person countless times in a matter of minutes - its become automatic now, even if I know I've said it I'll still ask y'alright! I think I'm going to have it engraved on my headstone "Are you alright?"

Re: Annoying habits you have, that piss other people off

To be honest, I have too many to list. It would take me forever to list and think of them

Probably the one my parents are always moaning about and the major one, I am lazy around the house. I don't clean up, leave stuff laying around, don't do much for myself etc.
