We all have our pet peeves. But have you ever wondered about the annoying things you do that your friends, family, and strangers are too polite to tell you about? I do, and I decided to do something about it.
It's easy to talk about self improvement, but in reality we're not that adept at seeing our own faults. The problem is that most people aren't going to tell you when you're doing something wrong until it gets to a point where they don't want to hang around you anymore. I'm the type who's easily annoyed, so I assume most of my friends and family are as well. It's also no secret that humans as a race have a lot of pet peeves, whether it's at the office, on a mobile phone, or in a restaurant.
To find out how I may be annoying the people around me, I wanted to open up a dialogue where friends and strangers could give me a performance review to help me pinpoint when I'm being an asshole and actually do something about it. Here's how I did it, and how you can do the same.
