Quirks, habits, and/or annoying mannerisms
« on: August 29, 2014, 12:48:15 PM »
This should be interesting . . . what are some of yours?   I'll start . . .


- If I purchase a cup of coffee at a drive-thru, I take off the lid, position the cup in such a way so that the tips of my fingers of my right hand go along the seam, then realign the lid so that I can drink from it.  Then I feel as if all is right with the world  :)

- Also, when wearing slippers I like the sound produced when dragging my feet across my tiled kitchen floor. (Used to annoy my husband)

I have to make the bed in the morning. . . and it HAS to be tight and neat.  And the pillows HAVE to match properly with the proper balance of contrast. Drives my husband bonkers.

Dad was a Marine.  ;D

I have to sit with my back facing a wall when eating or I get agitated. I don't like waiters/waitresses walking up behind me.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

I can not bear the sight or touch of wooden popsicle sticks.  Just thinking about them makes my skin crawl.
If I see someone holding an ice cream on a wooden stick I leave the room.

If only I had this kind of self-awareness. :P Actually, my tics are so many they blur together to produce simply an eccentric.

My wife's I could tell you all about in detail. ;)

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

Oh boy... I'll be able to post in this thread every day for as long as I post at the forum  ;D

First. If I'm entering a building, and I look back and see someone 20 feet behind me, especially if it's a girl*, I hold the door for them out of some warped since of being polite. Except it isn't polite, because then they often feel obligated to hurry up and get to the door so I'm not standing there forever holding it for them. So rather than helping them I am actually forcing them to do something they wouldn't ordinarily do and so in some sense inconveniencing them.

*Yeah, well, so I'm just being honest...

A woman did this to me today.  I was kinda confused because I'm not used to women holding doors for me and I was way more than 20 feet away.  I had to break into a jog to make it to the door in a reasonable time.  I was in a suit and jogging in a suit is just weird.

nope, I'm saying a woman pulled a Justin (that is what I will call it now) on me and I did not much care for it.

Only prescriptive grammarians would ding you.
Besides, one can sense the correct usage through the context.
When one is speaking, the words since, sense, cense, and cence all sound the same.

Even sinse is a word used by those still in high school. Check out the Urban dictionary. I will not print it out.

I have a ridiculously terrible ice chewing habitaddiction.

Luckily I am alone most of the time and I really resist doing it in front of others.

Sometimes I move forward and backward when sitting down. That repetitive motion thing, like those people you see and think are crazy because they're moving back and forth for no particular reason or need? That's me sometimes (in fact I was doing it about 10 minutes ago). I'm not crazy though because I don't do it in public; that's how it seems to work, anyhow. Though on the other hand some repetitive motions are allowed in public, such as finger or foot tapping, moving your leg back and forth (especially when they are crossed), etc. Same thing with talking to yourself: I, like most everyone else, talk to myself, I just do it in my head rather than verbally in public, and so I am deemed sane, whereas those who verbalize their thoughts when talking to themselves are to be feared. So, not following arbitrary social etiquette = you're crazy. Though I guess it makes sense considering that if you aren't doing what is normal then you are by default abnormal, and if you don't abide by the customs and limits required by the group then you aren't considered part of the group. *shrugs*  8)

IKEA is worth going to just for the ice in the restaurant!

Holy grail of ice there

When I get dressed up for liturgy on Sunday, my tie must be perfectly straight and wrinkle free. I hate when the tip curls or when it's wrinkly. I will resort to using my mother's hair straightener to get my tie to its smooth, wrinkle-free perfection.

Quirk? That would describe about 90% of who I am, unless of course I have a few drinks in me (then I'm almost normal).  :D

When I heat up food I see whether it's hot enough by touching it with my tongue. Also, I usually smell my food before I eat it. I only do this when I'm at home, of course. I would never do it in public.  ;)

Now days, answering yourself is too frequent (with ear buds and alll) that no one really cares about that, either. . .

but don't start slapping your hand or getting into fist fights with yourself - that would raise and eyebrow or two.

I have had a problem with the word "misled" since grade school, I thought it was pronounced like "miser", but It was pointed out to me in junior high, but when reading I still have to stop myself.
