    Post your bad habits here!!

    I'll start off..

    I (unconsciously) am cracking my fingers/knuckles..

    It annoys the hell out of some people, and my mum took me to the Dr's years ago and he said if I continued I would have arthritis in my hands by the time I was 30..

    Well.. I'm just a shade over 30 now, and i'm going strong :)

    CRACK CLICK CRACK CLICK :D

    Now having said all that, I hope sods law does not apply!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lets hear yours...

    Speaking my mind? Having my own views rather than jumping on the PC bandwagon?

    ... Annoys most people

    I bite my nails. I've tried to stop by consciously telling myself, "stop biting your nails for crying out loud!" etc. but then I find myself gnawing away at times for no reason.

    Depends on who you ask. I say "of course not!" and my wife would say "Absolutely!" Honestly, I guess I'm just a little too passive/agressive. I'm working on it though.

    My annoying bad habit is when I'm in restaurants with other people, I play with whatever's on the table -- napkins, condiments, utensils, straws, chopsticks, menu, etc.

    Straw wrappers are the worst -- I usually tear them up into a million little pieces, or make weird shapes out of them. And yes, I make origami pterodactyls from paper placemats too. My worst habit is making some strange concoction from whatever's left over on my plate, whatever drink I have left, and the various condiments on the table -- mixing them all together to make something truly putrid, much to the disdain of whoever I'm dining with. :D

    bit of a mad one, but if someone is trying to walk past me I'll end up going to the same direction they moved in. we both laugh, and walk on. I probably should focus more, plus I'm new to this whole city thing :D

    I also crack my knuckles, I don't think anyone is annoyed by it though. I don't know about the athritis thing though. I heard that was a myth? Otherwise I'd slightly consider stopping, or atleast not doin it as much. I'v also recently figured out how to crack my jaw. But I tihnk I tried to do it 1 too many times and my left side got really sore. I've stopped since then.

    The ultimate taboo; if someone is eating and I'm not, I'll steal something from their plate. It's always the best looking bit, the one they're saving for last. I've stopped doing it recently, though.

    I interrupt people, also.

    I say stupid crap all the time and it gets me in trouble. That said, people know exactly what I am thinking. :D

    I crack my toes by curling them. :(

    Does your doctor have a medical degree?

    How many people in this world crack their knuckles? Do they all have arthritis by 30? I'll be 30 in around 4 years. I'll tell you if I get arthritis in my hands or not. ;)

    I've been chewing my nails since I was 7 years old. Nothing my Mom ever tried (including that Thum stuff that's supposed to taste vile) could ever get me to stop.
