I have a couple of really annoying bad habits, well to be honest I am sure there are more than a couple, but here are two bad habits I am willing to confess to.
By far the worst is the habit I have of finishing other people’s sentences for them. It is such an irritating habit and I am working extremely hard to stop myself from doing it. I would be more than a little annoyed if someone kept on finishing my sentences for me, so who do I do it to other people? Who knows? But it’s got to stop!
Another habit is something I picked up from my aunt. My Aunt Pam was an absolute sweetheart and I loved her to bits, she was the epitome of a gentlewoman, but she had this one funny quirk – if I was staying over at her house, in the morning she would come into the bedroom with a cup of coffee for me and then she would sit at the dressing table and investigate my toiletries – she’d have a sample of my face cream, a squirt of my perfume, rub on a little of my hand cream. This would happen whenever I visited her without fail. I gather this little ritual was not reserved only for my cosmetics, it happened with almost any female houseguest. Personally I found it very endearing, and I came to look forward to those early morning chats and “toiletry sessions”, but Pam thought that this fascination with other people’s toiletries was quite embarrassing and would always apologise for it (not that it stopped her ;-)).
Not long ago, I stayed over at my parent’s house and as I was showering I realised that I was using my mom’s shower gel, not mine which was right there next to me. Then it dawned on me, I hadn’t used my toiletries at all, I’d been sampling my mother’s shampoo, conditioner, face wash and body scrub to my heart’s content and loving every minute of it! Casting my mind back I realise I do this to my daughter too, if I wander into Rox's bedroom for a chat I will often investigate her cosmetics while I am there. We’ve got strong genes in this family!!
Over to you, what annoying habits and crazy quirks are you willing to own up to?
