The Household Habits That Annoy Me The Most!


Everyone has bad habits, if you say you don’t, then you’re a liar! It’s okay to admit it, no one’s going to judge you.

Some of the worst habits exist in the household. There are numerous little things people do that will grind your gears. Here’s my list of the four household habits I find most annoying:

Shoes On Inside

In my opinion, shoes are meant to be worn outside of the home. You should try and keep your shoes off when you’re inside. Particularly if you have a nice carpet on the floor. When you wear your shoes outside you get all kinds of dirt and muck on the bottom. So, when you come inside, you’re leaving it all on the floor! I hate when my partner and kids traipse into the house with their dirty shoes on. You can guarantee that I’ll spend ages cleaning the floor, and then the moment I stop, in they come with messy shoes. Wearing shoes in the house is definitely a household habit that annoys me.

Not Washing Up

Imagine waking up every morning and going downstairs for breakfast. Imagine walking into the kitchen and finding thousands of cups and plates on the side unwashed. Welcome to my life. This happens all the time, and it annoys me so much. I can’t stand it when people leave things on the side and don’t wash them up. Or, people who put their things in the sink and say they’ll wash them later. Don’t wash them later, wash them now!! Unfortunately, it’s a bad habit that everyone in my house seems to have.

Using Someone Else’s Towel

There are so many different bathroom habits out there. You’re probably wondering how many of these bathroom habits have you got? The answer will be many. Everyone has loads of habits and things they do in the bathroom, and not all of them are annoying. But, some of them are, and one of them is particularly irritating. Yes, the worst bathroom habit is using someone else’s towel. I can’t even begin to describe the rage I feel when someone uses my towel to dry themselves. I go into the bathroom, have a shower, reach for my towel and it’s wet. Now I’m left having to dry myself with a wet towel. It’s incredibly frustrating, yet someone will always do it to me!

Leaving The Toilet Seat Up

Again, I could choose any number of annoying toilet habits here. But the absolute worst is when someone leaves the toilet seat up. It doesn’t take much effort to put it down; it literally takes one second. The annoying thing is, no one ever seems to see the problem with it. They just say that I should put it down when I go to the toilet next. But that’s not the point, it’s a matter of principle. It’s bad manners to leave the toilet seat up. Also, you’re displaying the ugly underside of the seat; no one wants to have that on display.

These have been four of the things I get annoyed at the most. No doubt some of you can empathise with me on some of them!
