You Do It Too: 18 People Reveal Their Most Disgusting Habits

We all have bad habits – but maybe some are just a little grosser than others. These are your gross, disgusting, and sometimes shameful habits: the ones you probably don’t want most people to know about. Have you ever wondered if you’re the only 20-something who still bites their nails, or rarely washes their sheets? Well, I’ve (anonymously) collected the most disgusting habits of 18 people and compiled their responses. Check it out to see if you’re really the grossest one out there:

The Nose Pickers

“I pick my nose. I know it’s gross and it bothers me when other people do it, but I can’t stop.”

“I still pick my nose. I’m in my 20s.”

“I secretly enjoy picking my nose and picking out giant boogers.”


The Nail Biters

“Biting my nails. It’s dirty and I know it. I make myself bleed when chewing at my cuticles. My boyfriend HATES it, but I’m too neurotic to stop.”

“Biting my nails. I’m a 26 (almost 27) year-old female.”

“Biting my fingernails.”

“Not only do I chew my cuticles and the skin around my nail, but I frequently continue chewing the skin that I have picked off for a while. Like gum, but gum that I manufactured myself.”


The Questionable Hygiene

“I love popping blackheads in the creases of my nose! I can’t stop doing it.”

“I can count on one hand the number of times I change my sheets in a year. Whoops.”

“If I brush my teeth six times in a week, I’m impressed with myself. Sometimes if they’re feeling extra fuzzy but I’m too lazy to brush them, I scrub them with a paper towel…or my finger.”

“I frequently decide that body spray and dry shampoo is an acceptable substitute for showering, even if I worked out that day…and the day before.”


“I frequently re-wear the same pair of socks. Like, every time I put socks on, those suckers are staying on for at least two days.”


The Uncategorized Icky Habits

“Sometimes if I have my phone around food I’m eating and food drops on my phone/phone case I’ll eat the food off my phone… like how disgusting is that…my phone/phone case literally touches everything… I need to reevaluate my life.”


“I have this horrible habit of taking the computer into the bathroom with me. Like, if I’m in the middle of something and have to pee, I will literally set up shop in there. It doesn’t even make sense because I spend so much longer in there than necessary.”

“I apparently moan when I eat? Like a weird moan hum, I never notice but others do.” 

“I always have to spit after I use the toilet because I hate the bathroom smell.”

“Biting my lips.”


“Scratching my armpits. I feel like such a monkey”

“I never wash my fruits and veggies before eating them, organic or not.”

So, there you have it. We’re basically all disgusting, we’re just really good at hiding it on a day to day basis. Even as our generation enters adulthood, we have yet to completely ditch our gross habits – and maybe we never will. Hopefully you can now realize that even though you may be disgusting, at least you’re not the only one!
