Annoying Habits

What habits do people around you have that really work your nerves? (This is just for fun - not bashing people!)

For me, my boss walks around the office snapping his fingers like castanets. It's distracting when you're concentrating or on the phone.
One of my coworkers pops his lips. (It sounds like bubblewrap from his cubby!)
My younger son cannot sit through a tv show or movie w/o talking through most of it.
My older son likes to read over my shoulder. (MAJOR PEEVE!)

  • I can't stand (in general) when people; chew with their mouth open, slurp their drink, suck their snot back in instead of blowing their nose...don't smile when I smile at them ( a little kindness goes a long way in life), try and touch my children when I don't know them. OH, and my BIGGEST...TERRIBLE spelling and grammar on here, FB, Myspace,etc. If you can't construct a sentence properly, don't talk to me on the internet!

  • Oh I totally understand about the reading over your shoulder part! My hubby does that!

    I really REALLY hate loud chewing; I can't even be in the same room as my hubby while he's eating cereal, it's horrible!

    And I can't stand the people who have no concept of personal space; they stand too close at all times and it makes me want to smack them in the face!
