A habit is formed after we perform an action often enough that it becomes ingrained in our brain.

Other habits are honestly a little annoying, especially if they’re something we do every day because we have to, not because we want to.
People on Tumblr shared the habit that they have yet to break, and the hilarious consequences that result, and the stories are pretty fantastic.

Do you have a work-related habit that is hard to break and a funny story to go with it?
