    10 Weird Things People Do

    Here are 10 weird things that people do all the time.

    No matter how together some people seem, one thing all humans have in common is the completely out there behavior we exhibit more often than we acknowledge.

    Here are 10 weird things that people do all the time.

    Number 10. Reading over emails right after you send them. 1, it’s too late, and 2, you’re just torturing yourself.

    Number 9. Answering calls from nowhere. How many times a day do you pick up your phone only to realize it never rang? Thought so.

    Number 8. Seeing faces in things that have none. You name it, clouds, rocks, buildings, grilled cheeses – anything’s game. Talking to them is perfectly OK. Hearing a response, on the other hand, is cause for calling in professional help.

    Number 7. Looking for the closest parking spot at the gym. Aren’t you there to get some exercise in the first place? Walking a few extra steps will only help the cause.

    Number 6. Rescuing some animals but eating others. Yes, cats and dogs are loveable and enrich people’s lives. For that, calling in fire trucks and helicopters to rescue one from a tight spot is perfectly understandable. Who knows - if you’d given your turkey sandwich a chance to love you when it could, it might have made you smile, too.

    Number 5. Snooze button abuse. Some actually set their alarms early so they can indulge the behavior.

    Number 4. Walking around with a constant sense of impending doom. For example, coming home and being relieved to find your house isn’t on fire or hasn’t been broken into.

    Number 3. Pretending to be otherwise occupied to avoid talking to people. There are so many tactics – faking phone calls, putting ear buds in but not turning on the iPod, pretending to be engrossed in a book about the science of how paint dries...

    Number 2. Avoiding somebody’s gaze so you don’t have to say hi to them. That gets particularly awkward when you at least sort of know the person and are approaching one another in an otherwise empty hallway. Yet, we do it.

    Number 1. Smelling ourselves. Considering how much time we spend stewing in our own aromas, the odds we’re getting an accurate, first-encounter impression of what somebody else is sniffing is highly unlikely. It also looks really strange.

    So, now that you know you’re not alone on those counts, is there anything else you’d like to share? Chances are, there are scads of other people who do the same thing.
