Strangest Traditions and Habits People Have

Britgirl
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

1 Getting Out of Bed On the Same Side Every Morning

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. - Britgirl

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

2 Having a Favourite Chair at Home

Haha I'm sitting in it! - Curti2594

3 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. - Britgirl

Yeah I find this. I always have to sit on the right-hand side when driving. - Barry2013

4 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. - Britgirl

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

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

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

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

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

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. - Britgirl

8 Knock Three Times On the Door
9 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. - Britgirl

10 Laugh When Embarrassed

I actually find this strange on how it works so well! - Curti2594

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

I laugh even when I fell and hit my hip on a table! - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

I laugh a lot. . . - Britgirl
