I’m sitting here at work, and my co-worker has a habit that drives me crazy. It infuriates me. And it’s stupid that it annoys me, but it does.
He sucks his index finger.
That doesn’t annoy me. What annoys me to no end is that when he’s on the phone with someone he knows, you can tell, because the finger is still in the mouth – trust me, you can tell by the sound of his voice. (I won’t go into his habit of saying “You’re stupid” to the person he’s talking to in the same place that you or I would say “That’s silly”.)
I can’t do anything about it, damn it to hell. I wish I could. It drives me batty, and I just know I’m going to explode at him some day.
