People Reveal the Most Disgusting Habits They’ve Ever Seen

“It's one of these things that I've been struck by for so long about America. You know, this amazing politeness of American life that's not at all class-specific. It's not like people get more polite as [they] ascend the hierarchy of society. Just incredible good manners. It's always been something that I've noticed.”Geoff Dyer

There's something very pleasant and tranquil about living in a society where the majority of people make good manners and politeness toward everybody an active habit. Unfortunately, it seems that not every member of society has put in the time and effort to develop these nice habits for themselves, and in many cases that means that they have developed some, shall we say, other types of habits in their place. Just what types of other habits am I referring to? The ugly, impolite, inconsiderate, rude, obnoxious, and, in a single word, disgusting habits that we all encounter on a way more frequent basis than we’d like to. I think we all know exactly which ones I am referring to.

Here are 41 first-hand accounts of what can only be described as disgusting habits. And don’t forget to be grateful: reading about them is probably a lot better than having to actually witness them!

40. Listen Up, People

Smoking is a terrible habit in so many ways. Not only is it bad for you, but second-hand smoke is a huge problem as well - not to mention the heavy cost financially. My significant other’s mother smokes like a chimney but refuses to help her pay for medical bills while she is out of work - but can always afford multiple packs of cigarettes and beer.

39. Be Nice to Your Car if You Want Your Car to Be Nice to You

I work at one of the largest car auctions in the country. People are nasty as all heck when it comes to their cars. Doesn't matter if it's an old car or new car. Some people treat them like trash cans. To the point where replacing the whole interior would be the only way to save the vehicle.

38. Nose Etiquette Can Certainly Be a Tricky Area

There’s definitely a lot of complaints out there both about people who don’t blow their noses, and about those who do blow their noses too much or too publicly. It's, unfortunately, a catch 22 with the people who hate when people blow their noses. There's no winning if you have nose problems, and the world isn't very sympathetic.

37. Dude, Do You Realize Where Your Fingers Have Been?

My coworker, when he's eating anything that’s small (like peanuts, M&M's, etc) sticks his fingers in his mouth every time he eats a piece. Like he was never taught that you can kind of just toss something in your mouth. It's horrifying.

36. You Have an Indoor Voice, You Might Want to Have Some Indoor Slippers Too...

Biting their toenails.

Walking outside barefoot.

Even worse. Walking outside in slippers and then going home and walking around your house and laying on your bed and couch in the same slippers. Yuck.....No Bueno.

35. Freshen up

Chewing gum for hours while smacking your lips. Generally eating with your mouth open. I have a major issue with it and have definitely fallen out with people at the dinner table because they try to talk so I see their chewed up dinner in their mouth. That will actually make me gag.

33. Let’s Get This One Straight Right Away, Don't EVER Do This!

Farting in public.

I do not mean simply "farting in a public place" and having nobody take notice, or releasing brown wind silently in a well-ventilated area.

I mean the highly audible, tranquility-shattering, bone-jarring BRRRRRRTTTTTTT and the gut-wrenching miasma that typically follows, lingering in the air like an invisible threat, and its escape into an office or classroom or movie theater, etc. Its cousin, the quiet, hissing mephitis colloquially known as SBD is equally offensive when released into confined quarters with other people.

Don't get me wrong - I can appreciate the je ne sais quoi of a properly-executed blast of butt vapor. I fart all the time. I fart in my office at least half a dozen times per shift. Some are silent, some are foghorns, and some are repetitive in a machine gun fashion. They almost always stink, but I at least have proper ventilation and odor-neutralizing countermeasures in place (such as a smoker's candle). It is impossible, in my opinion, to do this in the general public without some Tony Stark-level of engineering involved.

So please, exorcise your butt demons in a private or semi-private place.

I have nose polyps. I've gone through many nasal sprays and finally found one that's working so I can breathe through my nose now! I just remember how awful school was. Especially during tests when it was quiet. I also had to blow my nose constantly forever. I was always, really really uncomfortable because I knew it had to have been bothering everyone all the time.

13. Bringing a Little Perspective to the Table in More Ways Than One...

Many people like to complain about those who eat with their hands rather than using cutlery. I don't know about all cultures specifically, but I know in some cultures they use their hands to eat, regardless of what they're eating. I have an Indian friend, whose house I went to. We were eating curryI was using cutlery, whereas he pushed bits into his mouth. It was quite disgusting, but at the end of the day, we happen to live in a Western culture, where we're used to doing things our way. For the record though, my friend doesn't eat like that in public.

10. A Very Thorough Effort at Being Rude

About 10 years ago, when I came back home from my school, I always passed some nearby private school. I first had the smoke of a darn bus go into my face, forcing me to breathe gross air, and then there was a bus driver just beside who did smoke screens just in case the bus smoke didn't hit me yet. No wonder I came down with a case of pneumonia.

Rather than washing dishes, my ex would just pile them up and simply put them back in the cupboard. because she was that gross/lazy. I once asked for a pan, she told me to look in in a drawer. All her pans had inch-thick crust of unknown food from god knows when. I asked her why she didn't do dishes, and she just said she didn't feel like it. I had to sit there for fifteen mins and pick at the crust just so I could make breakfast. We broke up.
