goo Ranking recently published a survey into what manners-related behaviour by one’s partner people could not forgive, for both men looking at women and women looking at men.

Demographics

goo Rankings asked iBRIDGE’s Research Plus to conduct this survey, where between the 16th and 20th of January 2015 500 members, 50:50 male and female, of their monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. No further demographics were given.

Here’s a couple getting a bit too friendly on the train; at least they aren’t sitting legs akimbo.

Drunk Couple Train Tokyo

My wife is terrible for slamming car doors, but as we don’t own, just occasionally rent, I can forgive her. Furthermore, not grabbing as many free tissues as possible is a minus in my book!

I find it interesting that the top one for females is noisy eating, yet most guys I know have horrendously noisy eating habits. Perhaps they change when they are at home?
