  • Annoying Habits You Should Avoid Doing in Public

    Mind what you say

    Critics call it, the degradation of modern language. Our conversation is often full of phrases such as like, you know, but, actually to mention a few. Its a fairly common habit and most people are aware of how dumb and unconvincing these methods of conversations are. One needs to consciously change this habit. Personally I have recently acquired the habit of saying cyou know at the end of half conveyed sentences and although the person standing in front of me nods vigorously, I know they dont know. So what do I do to get rid of these annoying habits, I read a lot and watch movies and television series (like Downton Abbey) thatll help me increase my vocabulary.
