My Worst Habits

Everyone has a series of bad habits. Here are some of my worst!

I'm a normal human being with a ton of annoying habits, just like you. Yeah, you read that right. I'm annoying. And so are you. Hopefully, you're aware of what habits you have that are totally annoying all the people around you who see you often or interact with you daily. Maybe it's just me, but I feel like when we're aware of what are annoying habits are, admit it and own it, they instantly become less annoying. At least, that's how I hope it works. That's definitely how it works in my own mind! In that spirit then, I'm going to divulge some of my worst habits. Enjoy! And uh, hope this makes me less annoying (looking at you, hubby and close friends who see me regularly!)


- It can take me hours to text back. And sometimes, I just never do.
Here's the thing: If I'm at my desk and see a text, I will reply instantly. If I have my phone and have a spare hand, I'll reply instantly. But if I see and and one of my kids acts out or I don't have a free hand or I'm driving, it will be HOURS before I remember that you texted me and HOURS before you get a return text. Even worse, if it clears from my phone as a notification (like I actually opened the text, with every intention of replying...) and I formed the reply in my head but never typed it or hit "send" then guess what? You're likely not ever going to get a response. Best case scenario it takes several days for me to respond. Dear friends and family, I am sooooo sorry about this habit! I blame having kids. 

- I wake up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, multiple times... And I don't flush.
I flush during the day, don't worry! But at night? Why? It's just pee and odds are I'm getting up again in a few hours to do it again anyway. I'll just do one big flush when I get up for good in the morning! I realize this might be gross to some, but why waste the water for night pees? I can't remember a time in my life where I slept through the night - I've always been a light sleeper who wakes multiple times - so to me, this is just some energy and cash savings. Sorry to gross you out.

- I have an extremely expressive face... That doesn't hold back judgement.
I'd love to tell you that I'm nonjudgmental and welcoming to all walks of life, but my face gives me away. One look at my face, and there's no doubt what I'm thinking. I don't even try to make these faces! They just happen. Kinda like some people have "resting b*tch face", I have "I'm judging your life choices harshly" face. Do something stupid that affects other people or use poor grammar, and I literally can't with you.

Imagine me pounding away on these keys... I'm doing it right now!

- I'm a loud typer. Reeeeeal loud.
I remember my sophomore year of college, my roommate and I got along fabulously. We were really well suited to live together, especially in a rather small dorm room. Except her pet peeve was loud typing. I, at the time, was totally unaware that I was a loud typer. Additionally, I had one of those old school desktop computers from the late 1990's with the extra plush keyboards that I'm sure made a ridiculous amount of noise even for the most quiet, efficient typer. Also additionally, I was a communications major and was ALWAYS writing papers. My poor roomie informed me of my bad habit, and I really tried to become a better typer... But to this day, I just HAMMER on my keyboard. Maybe it's because I'm passionate about what I'm writing, maybe it's because I try to write in the very few, short hours I have that are kid-free a week or maybe it's because I have long fingers and therefore more power to hammer on the keyboard, but the ironic thing is, sometimes I even annoy myself I get so loud typing!

Thankfully, I now have my own office space and can get away with being a loud typer. A loud typer with absolutely zero plans on attempting to change it.

- I rarely, if ever, empty the dishwasher.
The kitchen is absolutely my "realm" of the house. I do all the cooking (minus the pancakes my husband makes for the kids on Saturday mornings), all the baking, all the meal planning and grocery shopping, I wash the pots and pans, all of it - it's my spot in the house and I'm happy it's all mine. Except that damn dishwasher. Unloading it is the devil! I leave that for my husband. When he travels and I HAVE to do it, I save it for the last day before he gets back and just wash all our dishes by hand, that's how much I hate it.

And if you're wondering what my husband does in terms of housework, he does the laundry and pays our housekeeper :)

I'm sure I'm just scratching the surface of my worst habits with this post. There are undoubtedly many, many more. These were the first that came to mind! I'm sure if I sent out a poll to friends and family, I'd learn new ones that even I wasn't aware of. That'd be eye opening, wouldn't it? Hey look, we're all annoying and all have bad habits. If you can't change it, just accept it and own it, right?

    1. NOW LIFE IS WORTH LIVING WITH THE HELP OF EDWARD JONES FINANCE

      Hello Every One, My Name is Trevor Cohen live in Texas and life is worth living comfortably for me and my family now. I really have never seen goodness shown to me this much in my life as i am a struggling Dad with three kids and i have been going through a serious problem as my son encountered a terrible accident last week, and the doctors states that he needs to undergo a delicate surgery for him to be able to walk again, and i could not afford the bill for his surgery then i went to the bank for a loan and they turn me down stating that credit score was bad, from there i run to my father and some of my freinds but they could not help, then when i was surfing through the net i came across a loan lender EDWARD JONES who provides loans at an affordable interest rate of 2% and i have been hearing about so many scams on the internet but at this time, in my desperate situation i had no choice than to give it a try and surprisingly it was all like a dream, i received a loan of $85,000.00 and i payed for my son surgery and thank GOD today he is okay and can walk. I could in turn start something profitable with the remaining amount and i said to my self that i will shout loud to the world of the wonders of GOD to me through this GOD fearing lender EDWARD JONES and i will advise anyone in genuine and serious need of loan to contact this GOD fearing Company via: Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com
