15 Weirdly Petty Things We’re All Guilty Of Doing

Like most people, I often find that I tend to veer towards some fairly petty activity in my day-to-day. Not on purpose! I tell myself that I am not petty, and do my very best to not demonstrate pettiness in my daily activities. But, then, I will “accidentally” turn on my read receipts to prove a point (what point? Nobody knows), or go out of my way to like a friend’s Instagram when they aren’t texting me back. You have done the same at some point or another, right?

Anyway. There are worse things one could be than petty, right? In fact, in these dark times, with the fact that many of us are still reeling from the literal Nazi march that occurred this past weekend, honing one’s skills of pettiness is just about the only way to stay sane. That is what I tell myself to lull myself to sleep at night, at least! So, check out these weirdly petty things that we’re all guilty of doing:

1. Blurring out the face of that one person you don’t like in your photos together:
