Not one of us is perfect but there are some things that are just a no-no.  We should try to stop doing these things ASAP.  These are habits that can certainly affect your relationships negatively.  These simple annoyances can cause those of us who suffer from pet peeve syndrome, to go bonkers.  Help us, please!

# 1 Nose Picking

… And in public?  Get a life, please!  No need to say any more on this.

 

 

# 2 People playing with their toes

finger food

Especially at informal gatherings when persons turn up in flip flops and begin to amuse themselves with some serious toe-play or foot massage.  That’s ok if that’s your thing but only if you are in your own home.  Eventually, some well-meaning soul announces that food is served and the rest is history… But for the curious, I will paint a clearer picture of what happens next.

It’s fascinating that after all we were taught by our parents and teachers, we forget our most basic training, namely, washing our hands.  The pain that follows for me is unbearable.   I proceed to give my wife the kung fu-eye look, which she quickly reciprocates (but her fight is with me).  I wonder… is she more upset with me than with this unhygienic person?  Well not really.  She is a sweet lady who deals with things a little differently than I do.  One might say she is a bit more tolerant than I am.  Meanwhile, our friends and their dirty hands are busy fondling utensils and drink containers I have to touch… 

# 3 Double Dipping

I was recently in the presence of someone who thought they were so special, they could get away with the unspeakable, i.e. double dipping (please click on the link to see an example of double dipping).  Not even once but twice… Now there is absolutely no excuse for this. Don’t be a double dipper or you may get double slammed.

# 4 Sneezing

Let’s ponder a while on those who think that they have the authority to sneeze without utilizing proper protocol around people and food. Hmmm enough said… No, I will continue.

Back when dinosaurs were around and I was in school, I was shown a video of a sneeze in slow motion. It was disgusting but life-changing.  It gave me a fresh new perspective of the dangers of being in public.  A video can be seen right here. See for yourselves.  More disgusting ones are here.

We can go on forever and I’m sure you have your own experiences.  If you want to help us to be better human beings, please share your pet peeves below in the comments section. 

# 5 Spectacle Snacking

Spectacles

Lastly, you are in a discussion with someone who wears spectacles.  They proceed to remove them and place the frame tips in their mouths.  These frame tips had been resting comfortably on their greasy ears all day… All this is occurring while they are still talking and making eye contact. 
To be continued…

You know some of these human beings.  They are all around and may even be wearing your clothes right now.  Others are living in plain sight awaiting exposure.  We will be back for part 2. 🙂

We want to hear what you think, in the comments below.

  1. Love your article! you could add finger licking at the dinner table and eat and drink (loud) in movie theatres, the latter a reason I don’t go there anymore.
