    Yes I do.  My son was reading your question and he wrote Mom you are very disgusting and you are a bully.  He says this because he cannot have the use of the computer for himself to download songs that I do not approve of.  So I fall guilty to the question you have asked.

    Absolutely. I have been told that my punctuality and tidiness are totally nuts and enough to drive a sane man over the cliff. I am not so sure that my tidiness is crazy making. I like tidy but if things get messy I am OK until I put everything back in its place. But being late! Aaarg! That drives me insane thus I drive the habitually late over the cliff. My baking/cooking habits are also annoying. I constantly cook for an army even if only two or three people are at the table. I am in the habit of cooking big and find it to be really annoying to cook little. OK There are three things that inspire nagging.

    I think everyone does. I know I tend to talk with my mouth full and if I'm excited about wanting to share something, I'll cut someone off while they're talking. I'm getting better at curtailing those habits, but if it wasn't for my bad habits I would be perfect.

    I have strict house rules that really annoy my children even though I am doing it for the safety of the family. It is always the rules that I create tend to be annoying for my children.

    Yes, I do. I goof around too much, and don't take things seriously (even when I should). I am also very forgetful (anything that involves numbers - times, dates, amounts.) And there are times when I don't listen to what people are telling me. I'll find myself saying things like - "right," or "a-ha" and there is a blank look on my face because my mind is somewhere else. I really hate it when it happens but I can't help it. I'm very ADD!

    Undoubtedly!  I talk too loudly when I get excited, I repeat myself, and I'm a neat-nik among other things.

    I'm not as guilty of having habits, I don't think.  I think, though, I just annoy people (and lots of them) in general.   (lol)  (I put that "lol" there to show that I have a sense of humor about it, but it doesn't mean I'm joking about annoying people.  I suspect (kind of know) that I do.   smile  (AND, I tend to annoy people while trying not to have habits or do things that I'd think would bother anyone else.  I guess annoying people just comes naturally to me.  smile  )

    I do.  They annoy me anyway so I have to assume they would annoy other people.  My smart mouth and my sarcasm have always gotten me in trouble.

    Yes of course. Even we don't know it. There is still a tendency that we annoy other people with our actions.

    I'm very sensitive.I don't like moody people.I hate to be with short tempered people.So, when I ask them to change those habits, they don't like me.So, I think asking them to change few habits they have is itself annoying.I should not do that as it's their life.

    I know for sure that I annoy my partner and my daughter. I am always tidying up and putting things away in a "safe" place which annoys them as they make more mess looking for them.

    Another thing that annoys them is that I am so forgetful. My daughter asks me to pick things up from the store, I write a list, forget to take it and then can't remember what I have gone for.

    whether or not I have habits that annoy others matters not I am not here to please everyone else. So the question should be do I care and my answer would be "NO".

    Sadly I know I have at least one. It is finishing people's sentences. That by some is supposed to mean that I am so anxious to say what I want to say that I don't allow the next peson to speak.
    In my case that is not so ...it is just that I am so on the wave length with the other person I want to help them express their idea or I get carried away and blurt it out.

    Anyone who says that they do not are lying to themselves. Of course, we do. We all having something about us that annoys others; whether it's habits, personality traits, whatever.

    Yes, I do.  I know I annoy my wife by saying silly little almost meaningless comments about all manner of things; in a way, talking to myself.  I also like to hum a lot and even sing, though I expect it is the self-talk twaddle, piffle and waffle which comes out of me when I'm doing things around the house which gets to her.   

    Funnily enough, I don't do this sort of things among other people.  I guess it is a sign of a more compete relaxation.  After all, I've been married to this little woman for fifty-two years.  Some of her temperaments also annoy me a little.  But I'm learning the secret of a successful marriage.   It can be defined in two words:
    YES, DEAR.

    Well, technically...yep that is it, everything has to be precise. I never noticed it until my son started doing it. It's funny how your own bad habits come to your attention when your kids start doing them.

    Yes! Many!  I love to read and usually share what I read to my friends.  I have been told this is very annoying!
    I also try to help and, apparently, it annoys many as well.

    I have a bad habit. Sometimes I can't control my anger and talk so loud, which annoys my brother sometimes. But to my good luck he is really understanding and does not scream back at me......
