Bad habits of other people do get on mine.My mother for instance,she'll be talking to me,then all of a sudden she burps and acts like she didn't do anything.She doesn't even excuse herself.That really grosses me out.She has no manners.I hate talking to her because she does that.Bad gross manners, is what bothers me as a bad habit.I cannot stand to talk to my mother because she burps while she talks to me and keeps talking after she does it like she didn't do anything.Does anyone elses bad habit bother you?

It bothers me when people have bad manners. I can put up with other habits but there is no excuse for bad manners. Talking on a cell phone in public, not excusing oneself when sneezing or burping, leaving the tv on when you have company, etc. Have you talked to your mom about this? How did you end up with manners when you didn't have a good example?

I agree with you Java...Bad manners is something that really gets on my nerves. I cant stand it when people blow thier nose at the dinner table. Another bad habit i cant stand is when people slurp on thier drink, its very loud and annoying!

I know someone who farts and will just stand there laughing at it. Not saying excuse me at all. I know we all have to let it out in life. But,to sit right in front of my face and fart is a no no.

There are a few things as well as a few people that get on my nerves,one thing that gets on my nerves is when you are trying to talk to someone and all of a sudden someone will but into the conversation.My brother always do the butting into the conversation when i go to see my mum so i now try to chat to her when he is not there as that way it is alot easer.The other thing that gets on my nerves is when i am on the telephone and people in my house either listen in to the conversation or they make alot of noise when i am on the phone and i can not hear the other person on the end of the phone.

That's a common bad behavior,to but in a conversation that wasn't directed to you.Alot of people do that.My mother if she's around when I'm on the phone she tries to hear what I'm talking about.

hi java09 yes people's bad manners do get on my nerves' to0. Like someone blowing their nose at our table, then folding the contaminated napkin up and putting it on her used dishes. It is not just gross but she is letting the workers take the chance of picking up her virus and getting really ill. Now an occasional burp is not really that gross to me, and to get on your own mother's case to me is bad manners. you must be one of the people who never fart or burp a nd think this is a controlled thing which it is not. Yes some peoples bad manners really disgust me but to make a silly'issue of a burp from your own mom, now that's being what I call nasty nice. to me, nasty nice people are so caught up in nitpicking they do not realize they are using bad manners themselves.-

Hi friends, My parents has gifted me with a pair of filters in my eyes.I always filter the best part out of any individual I came across and ignore the bad part.Because I am no one to comment on other's weakness. I know If I point one finger to any body my other four fingers will be pointing towards me!!

I don't consider burping a bad habit. For me, it's one way of saying that you're full. I have colleagues who burps while talking to me but it never bother me in any way we just laugh about and forget about the incident. I'm sure the person who burped is much more ashamed for what he did although it's involuntary). What annoys me are people who for some reason spit near you or blows his nose in front of everybody. For me burping or even farting is less annoying if you compare it to those who burp of fart.

Yes, of course, especially if it disturbs you. I have a roommate who is not organized. I mean, I see her bag elsewhere in the room, sometimes I stumble on them and that pisses me off. Even though how many times I tell her to put her bags in the proper place, she seem not to understand.

They do get on my nerves. I really don't like people who make a mess out of everything and never clean up and I can't live like that. If they aren't living with me, that's ok because they are doing that in their own apartment and I won't have to live there, but when something like this happens where I live, I just hate it. I had a room mate who was like this and never cleaned up after herself. I started hating every single one of her habits and every time she did something I was totally disgusted. I also hate it when I talk to my mother and she doesn't say anything back but then she says that she listened to me all the time..when in fact she wasn't paying attention at all.

No not really because most of the time I consider that as them being comfortable around me. Most of the people i know are more sensitive and careful when they are somewhere else anyway so i dont really mind that. also, if noone gets affected or hurt by their bad habits, i guess it's enough for me to just let them be. the least i can do is to let them know about how i feel if i really do get pissed or make them aware of such acts if I think they arent aware of those habits.

My husband will walk into a room where he can see that I am working and start talking on the telephone. This wouldn't be so bad except for the fact that he speaks in huge volumes to the point where I cannot hear myself think. I either have to wait for him to get done talking (which can be a considerable amount of time) or I have to move to another area. Typically, he will relocate himself to where I am and strike up another conversation. I actually had to get an office out of the home for when I know he is feeling talkative.

Yeah, it sometimes do gets on my nerve. One of the most common habits that I enocounter very often is shouting through phone. That is this lady who always call my mother up for some matter. Then every time I pick up the phone, she would just shout "hello.....". The voice is so loud that I think my ear really hurts. It's not just one time, it's every time. Luckily, she starts to soften her words after we talk for a bit but the initial volume is always unbearable for me.

Bad manners are distracting and can be downright disgusting. One of my coworkers picks his nose at work and even worse he will be talking to you at the same time. I have developed the ability to ignore it, but it isn't what I would call professional behavior.

I know someone who sneezes really loudly, not just a soft sneeze and then blowing their nose but a great big whoop like HAWOOSHOO and then looks around to see who is reacting which is so very childish (they are an adult) . I think when they were a child everyone must have laughed when they did it and they cant understand why noone does anymore. This same person also laughs a great big bellow of a guffaw if they think something is funny. More like a comedy cartoon character than a real persons laugh. I often think noisy people don't realise that, that sort of volume is bad manners too

It depends on the person and the habbit for me. In general I'm not too much of a nit-pick about things and quite often keep my comments to myself. Of course like I said it depends on the situation. In general I know, even though my mother had a few she felt she had to appoligize to me for, but I understood. After all she was old and dying I had to take a lot of things into account.
