When Loving A Geek Means Loving Their Annoying Habits

The folks at Wired have compiled a list of the most annoying habits of geeky spouses, and, in a bit of bad news for the majority of our commenters, "punning" takes the number one spot.

"Everyone has annoying habits, and a sizable part of every successful marriage is learning to live with those things each other does that annoy you," writes Wired's Matt Blum. "I think it's safe to say, too, that geeks have some habits that we think are awesome, but that non-geeks find a little...less awesome."

Among the most annoying habits: "using Frak or Klingon, or both, instead of regular swear words," "wearing obscurely geeky t-shirts to normal places," and "needing to watch certain TV shows ASAP to avoid spoilers." My fiance would like to add, "Talking about how much you hate Heroes even though you sit on the couch next to me and watch Heroes every time it's on instead of just leaving the room so I can watch Heroes without having to hear about everything that's wrong with Heroes." To which I say: get back to me when you can agree on giving our someday maybe future son the middle name Olórin. Geek.
