TWQ: Habits

This week's TWQ (The Weekend Question) is not about what nuns wear, but about those little habits that we have.

What habits do you have that you can never seem to be able to shake off? Is there some that others have that really annoy you? Write as many as you wish.

My answers are:

1: Being a creature of habit, there are certain things I have to do before I can move on to something else.

2: If I think there is a one in a million chance something might not be quite right before I go to sleep, I have to go down and check again.

3: Relating to other people, I can't stand a person who whistles.

Now it's over to you...

Hitting the snooze button on the alarm clock too many times.

seriously, i mostly just let things slide that used to bother me. i think as you get older you mellow out a bit...

Habits...Hmm. I expect I have plenty that annoy others but I'd call them 'systems' such as ways to pack for a biz trip and things of that nature.

I'm here today via Michele's and bring greetings!

1. I like cracking my knuckles and also my neck.

2. Can't stand people scratching while talking to me.

Oh, how awful. I'm a whistler -- you'd hate me. So sad...

I probably have lots of bad habits, but the ones that annoy *me* the most are those things that I need to do for myself I tend to put off in favor of those things that others want/need me to do.

I talk too much (but I enjoy doing so and just cannot seem to quit).

As far as others, I actually despise being lied to. It means that person thinks I'm too stupid to realize/know the truth.

I also do not care when people replace facts with opinions and cannot tell the difference.

I guess that's about it. :D

I hate when anyone sucks air through a straw--for some reason, it really drives me crazy in that nails-on-a-chalkboard kind of way (although the sound of nails on a chalkboard ironically doesn't bother me at all).

Linda said...

Hmm, let's see ...

I always shut off the lights when I leave a room. I think my father got that one ingrained into my head!

I always sleep on the right side of the bed and have to get out on the same side. It used to be the left side when I was married but after we split up I moved to the right and stayed there!

I can only read one book at a time. I need to finish one before I start another and if I don't finish one, I will never start another!

Linda said...

Oh, and I don't whistle so you'd love me!

Nepharia, as it's you, I forgive you for your whistling trait!

Linda, I forgot to mention that I ALWAYS switch lights off before leaving a room.

Not being able to wake up on time in the morning.

I'm a perfectionist, so things have to be right before I can move on to the next thing.

If I think of something I need to write it down immediately or I become restless.

I wobble when I'm nervous.

I can't stand other people biting their nails. It makes me tick.

As organized I am at work, as disorganized I am at home. Very odd.

I used to bite my nails, but I've not done that for years.

I do instead, pick at them, it drives my husband potty.

I don't like people sniffing, I always want to go and give them a tissue.

Have a great time away.

I spend too much time online :)

I pay too much attention in numbers.

Procrastination. *blush*

Always fighting for justice, people find me too aggressive. :(

I don't like people who smoke.

I don't whistle. You'll like me. hehe....
