It wasn’t a twitch. It couldn’t be blamed on Tourette’s syndrome. Just spontaneous combustion of frustration and impatience as they rolled from left to right and back again. We all have bad habits not huge but small irksome ones that may drive others crazy. My pesky little habit is rolling my eyes. Now I confess I do not have a poker face. I would be lousy at any card games involving money or betting. I would lose every time because my face gives me away.
Yes I’m a stickler for time and absolutely yes I have been late for things before but I do roll my eyes when I’m annoyed at myself and at others for tardiness. I bring this subject up because at work I had rolled my eyes when a coworker who’s always late said it’s important to be on time. I did have my mask on and I did have my back turned to her when she made this declaration. In my mind I was thinking “take your own advice!”
Waiting in line will bring on an eye roll from me ( a pesky little habit I inherited from my dad). The eye roll signifies impatience and intolerance which is arrogant on my part because the other person will take my eye roll as so rude! It is rude I admit and I try to contain myself as much as possible. My old boss rolled his eyes all the time and I felt a kindred spirit with him. My habit does get me into trouble especially with my brother because he’ll snap at me “don’t roll your eyes at me!” and yup I then roll my eyes at him! I googled what does eye rolling mean and it’s a passive aggressive form of immaturity.. that a person rolling his or her eyes is looking down on another person. I truly think this is extreme in interpretation. I think for me it is more disbelief and yes sometimes boredom, but trust me I don’t have the ego to think I’m better then anybody else. More the opposite in all candor.
What I can do with this pesky little habit?
Is there a habit others think is annoying or rude?
Stay safe stay well ❤️❤️❤️
