Are you a 'saint' (question about nuisances)?

Asked by rebbel (27342points) October 16th, 2011

In research results, many times you’ll find that an X percentage of people get annoyed by certain behaviour (like: 80% of questioned persons hate people who throw garbage on the streets I assume then that those 80% don’t do it themselves, yet the streets are full of trash).
What I want to say is: people get annoyed by certain behaviour, but clearly some are guilty of doing those deeds themselves or so I believe.
I hate people trashing the streets with empty cans or wrappers, and I never do it myself.
But also, I don’t like it when cyclists cross the (red) traffic lights, yet every now and then I am guilty of doing exactly that.
So, what is something you think is annoying/disgraceful, but, you have to admit, you do yourself sometimes?

Interrupting during a conversation and yelling across the house to talk to people on the other side rather than walking over and talking to them.

Annoyed by people talking loud on the phones when in a bus. I do it because I can’t talk without “yelling” .. I am annoyed by others but can’t talk in whispers.

Yell, I hate it when people yell but I know I do it at times at work.

I hate it when the car behind me tailgates me. Every so often though, I find myself doing the same thing and having to break in order to back off a bit.

Another vote for gossip.

Talking like a pretentious asshole, especially in public. Hate it, especially when I do it. Sometimes I just stop mid-sentence and cringe at myself.
