We have all fallen guilty to a few bad habits here and there. Luckily the problem is usually not the mistake itself but the act of repeating it. A defining characteristic of the human society is that our lives are intertwined through social relationships. How we relate to each other is very important. In fact, it greatly determines the quality of those relationships as well as whether they will last or not. When someone does something you don’t like, the seemingly correct thing to do is tell them to stop or at least try to,right? Well, it is not as easy as it sounds. Sometimes, we don’t want to hurt their feelings or rub them in the wrong way so we keep mum about their cringeworthy habits. Aaaargh! Frustrating right? Well if we cant say it out loud at least we can vent it out here.

Being Stuck On Your Phone While Around People

I would think this one to be a no brainer but seemingly it is not. When you invite someone out to lunch or any other type of intimate  meeting, the other person would safely assume you are somewhat interested in some sort of conversation with them. At least I would ;so when it happens that you decide to stay glued to your phone half of the time for one reason or the other, that would definitely irk the other person. I mean, we all have phones and we can easily stay glued to them as well if we wanted to. No one needs to come out all the way to a date to do that. Lets not waste each others time

Spitting In Public

Not only is spitting in public nasty but it is terrible manners and should not be encouraged at all. It has even been labelled as a public offence in some countries such as India.If this is not convincing enough then the fact that we are in the middle of  full blown pandemic should. If you can, kindly invest in tissue or even handkerchiefs.

Over stepping Boundaries

Have you ever heard of that saying ,give them an inch and they take a mile. That sums up this point perfectly. This can be manifested in many ways. It could be as simple as finishing a whole pack of chewing gum when offered just a few pellets. As petty as it sounds, this is one of the most annoying behaviors to date that I have come across. People have different priorities; for some it could be something small like a pack of gum while for others it could be as serious as paying off a huge debt. Regardless of the severity of the situation, lets all just be considerate of each others boundaries.

Practice Social Distance

Generally speaking, standing or sitting uncomfortably close to random strangers  is a habit that should be common sense to everyone. However that’s not the case, is it ?Whether we are at the supermarket or in PSVs, people should stop invading other peoples spaces.  Even in the wake of the Covid 19 pandemic where everyone has  been advised to keep distance from each other as a means to curb the spread of the virus, this rule still falls on deaf ears.

These are just but a few annoying habits that I have come across here and there.I am sure there are many more.Kindly share your experiences.Lets vent it out in the comments.
