I tend to blow my nose in public,like in parking lots and such,by covering one nostril with my finger and blowing snot out the other nostril.
Here in Iowa we call that the "Farmer Blow
I've done it several times myself and yes, it is disgusting. But sometimes it just has to be done.
As for my own personal quirks...
Like Derf, I sometimes get accused of being arrogant.
I remember one time several years ago at a get together among friends, there was this new girl hanging out with us. (a friend of a friend)
I was blabbering on about something and she looked me straight in the eyes and said, "You're kinda stuck up aren't you
That threw me for a loop because I never think of myself that way.
And it made for an awkward moment.
Ever since that night, I'll catch myself saying arrogant things and feel somewhat ashamed.
I've definitely mellowed since then. Especially here on this forum.
Dig up old posts of mine from years back and you can clearly see that I'm not even close to the same person I once was. I get embarrassed reading some of the junk I wrote.
Well, every now & then I can become ornery, but I usually keep it in check.
I am also called "cheap" by my friends and family members!
I don't think I'm cheap. I believe I'm thrifty
For example, I do not buy napkins.
Instead, when I go through the McDonalds drive-thru, I ask for a huge stack of napkins.
Why buy napkins at the store when I can get them from McDonalds for free?
McDonalds is a multi-billion dollar corporation. They can afford it.
To me, that's not cheap...that's smart.
Only a sucker pays for napkins when he or she could get them for free.
Same goes for any other product.
(if you recently bought or currently buy napkins, please accept my apologies)
I must get the "cheapness" from my father because my mother constantly tells me, "Jeez Jamey, you're just like your father! He was cheap too! That's one of the reasons I divorced him!"
So I guess my "cheapness" is hereditary.
