Annoying Habits People Have


The Top Ten

1 Chewing With Mouth Open

My younger brother always does this and it's so annoying and loses my appetite

Absolutely disgusting. Sadly a lot of my family members do this.

Am I seriously the only one in my school who chews properly?! - DogsUnleashed

2 Saying "Literally" Too Much

Literally tired of this literally annoying habit. I literally can't stand it! Literally, you have to literally stop this literally old and literally tedious word from literally massive overuse! - PositronWildhawk

I literally hate this it's literally annoying. Literally.

Saying Literally too much is STUPID! It's not like you have fill in a missing word with, ", literally Justin..."


3 Smoking

Horrible breath, yellow teeth, yellow nails. If your smile is supposed to attract people, then those who smoke have a much harder time. I would hate to depend on something that is affecting my health in a negative way. Its says that you really don't care about your health or looks. If you don't give a toss about yourself how can you possibly care about others around you. Worst habit -definitely number 1! STOP SMOKING. IT KILLS! Sadly lots of children my age between 11-16 would ask with out a second thought for 'just one fag' what a dirty word. Would I take a puff of cancer... NEVER. EWWW

It's super bad for you, and can kill you, but it's not really annoying. - lionsforlife

My dad does this a lot. It's gross!

It's so unhealthy. - Userguy44

4 Nail Biting

Surely it's not attractive, Don't know anyone who'd talk to a person doing this. - Ananya

Sorry for people who do bit their nails :
"I think nails taste good NOM, NOM, NOM! So CRUNCHY! Nom, NoM, nOm!
Love my nails! NOM nom NOM! So Good!... " - funnyuser

I really need to fix this! - DogsUnleashed

5 Talking With Mouth Full

I do it sometimes but not a lot

6 Whining
7 Picking Nose

I have a nasty habit of doing that but I can't help it.

JUST DO IT PRIVATELY! - Bikerninja1997

8 Gossiping

I just hate all people

9 Twisting Their Back
10 Constant Sniffling

My relatives are Asian and they constantly do this thing to little kids called "sniff-kissing" where they go up to a little kid's face and inhale. It is so weird and annoying!

This drives me insane it's so annoying

The Newcomers

? Using Phone While Cycling

Something that annoys me to death. You need to heed the traffic. And it looks odd to me. I'm ready for all the people how will attack me for saying this. - Userguy44

? Using Cancer as a Way to Describe the Things They Don’t Like

I can't believe people are using the word cancer to describe anything they hate. This is actually very disrespectful to those who are actually suffering from cancer.

The Contenders

11 Rolling Their Neck
12 Complaining

Man, when people complain it's just SO ANNOYING I mean, why can't people just STOP complaining? It's just way so totally annoying. - MoldySock

13 Biting the Inside of Their Cheek
14 Biting Their Tongue
15 Biting Their Lip

I'd just cringe away - Ananya

16 Tapping
17 Rapidly Tapping Foot Under Table
18 Saying Someone's Name but Then Not Saying Anything
19 Saying Stupid Jokes

Even worse...when someone laughs the first time, and you think 20 times after, the joke is still funny. Not!

I hate stupid jokes. My sister did this to me a lot of times. - Userguy44

20 Clearing Their Throat Loudly

Go die somewhere else

21 Sucking / Licking Fingers

Do you really need to eat every morsel of food? Use a napkin, animal.

22 Snitching
23 Saying Your Mom Every Time Someone Asks You a Question

Something equally annoying (and about as mature as that) is when people try to insult you and just say "your face". "You know what else looks like trash, your face! " Well done, how long did it take for you to come up with that - Danielsun182

You guys are this getting this crap from regular show from muscle man.

I would find this really funny if someone tells you this every time you ask a question :
Who do you hate the most? Your mom.
What is 1*1? Your mom.
What is your favorite color? Your mom.
Who is your mom? Your mom. Really? Your mom.
Who is your dad? Your mom. That's starting to get annoying. Really? Yes.
What is your favorite animal? Your mom. My mom is not an animal! Oh, Really? Yup. Goodbye. ( make him/her leave )
Thank God! - funnyuser

24 Saying "Like" Every Two Seconds
25 Bothering Others


26 Using the Filler Word "Basically"
27 Lying
28 Popping Acne

You may get scars doing that. - Bikerninja1997

29 Looking to Be Perfect

Its actually a phobia its called atelophobia.

30 Tattling
31 Jealously

Why can't people try to feel happy for the person who has achieved and try not to make them fell bad? I hate it. when it happens to me I can at least pretend I am happy (NOT SARCASTICALLY) for them

32 Talking About People's Private Areas
33 Getting Mad or Upset Over Stupid Stuff

I dropped one crumb! By the stars, this is so terrible! I hate this! And my acting skills! - Cyri

37 Putting Things in Your Nose
38 Being in Your Underwear All Day
39 Scaring People for Fun
40 Keeping You on the Phone but Have Nothing to Say

I have better things to do than to listen to small talk or long moments of silence. I don't need a 30 minute phone call where all I hear is you breathing or asking "Are you there? " Why did you even call if you have nothing in particular to talk about?

41 Swearing
42 Walking Around Naked

Like in the locker room or dorm room.

43 Chewing ice
44 Beard stroking
45 Hands in Pants
