What are the strangest habits you find about your fellow human beings, or even yourself? Even if it's really daft, feel free to add.

The Top Ten

Getting Out of Bed On the Same Side Every Morning

My bed is enclosed between two walls, so though isn't really a problem for me. In fact, I'm in bed right now, and speaking of which SOMEBODY HELP ME FOR GOODNESS SAKE! I'VE BEEN ERE FOR TWO YEARS AND I HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM REALLY BAD! I'VE BEEN EATING MY TOENAIL CLIPPINGS AND DRINKING MY SPIT! And oh gosh, I'm out of character-er, uh, I mean, my bed is comfy. Dad: "Who are you talking to, son? " Me: "Oh, nobody dad. But wait, I'm not talking..." Dad: "Oh what you're not? Geeze, uh, about that, you were typing real loud and, uh, the bacon is ready, and I just- gotta go! " *sound of getting into car and driving away*

My bed is not against a wall. I ALWAYS get out of it on the left-hand side. I tried the other side once - completely ruined my day.

I have to because it's against the wall.

Anonymous: it sounds to me like you need to get some sleep now...you'll feel a lot better in the morning...

Having a Favourite Chair at Home

Haha I'm sitting in it!

I don’t have a favorite chair, but I do sit in the same chairs all the time because my mom and sister doesn’t allow me to sit in their chairs

Sitting On the Same Side On Public Transport

Again, I try to sit on the left side of the bus / train. It upsets me if there are no seats on my favourite side.

Yeah I find this. I always have to sit on the right-hand side when driving.

Singing to Advert Jingles or TV Shows

I've tried to stop imitating the EastEnders drumbeat or advert jingles but I can't. There's no cure.

I sing the Meow Mix Tender Centers commercial sometimes. Yes even the non singing part.

Jeez Britgirl it sounds like you have OCD too!


Hey NintendoROCK3T! Maybe just a little...haha!

Say "Umm..." Before We Answer a Question

Even if the question is, "What is your name? " someone will always reply with, "Er,..."

Always Adding Mustard Before Tomato Sauce On a Hotdog
Adding Milk Before Tea

This is not the 'proper' way to make tea. The rule is: tea first, then milk but I, and many others don't follow this rule.

I always add the milk first so I don't have to let it diffuse for as long. It's an advantage.

Knock Three Times On the Door
Pull Random Faces In Concentration

My friend always pokes her tongue out the side of her mouth or wiggles her eyebrows. Cute but a strange habit.

Laugh When Embarrassed

Would love you to join properly, Cookie, you know that! But I admire your free spirit. It's still nice that we can communicate like this, though. Anytime you want to create an account, my message option will always be open to you. You know that too..!
Do you like Sammy Davis Jr? Just wondered...
Always hugs and kisses to you, lovely Cookie : )

Good for you, Cookie. Join if you will, any time you like.

I actually find this strange on how it works so well!

I laugh a lot. . .
