During the pandemic, relationships were tested since more couples spent time at home. Not only did people have to adjust to their significant other's quirky habits, but there's one thing that made people very annoyed — and it's not what you would expect!
Bed Guru surveyed 1,000 people in the U.K. to see what bad bedroom habit their partner committed during lockdown, and 40.61 percent of respondents said eating in bed was their biggest pet peeve.
Interestingly enough, 41.97 percent of respondents said they are also guilty of snacking in bed.
Unfortunately, eating in bed does seem the way to go, as Abbas Kanani, Pharmacist at Chemist Click, said that it's not great for your digestive system. If you eat while sitting down, it can cause acid reflux, which is a "disease or GERD is a chronic digestive disease with symptoms of esophageal burning and heartburn," per Healthline.com.
Resident sleep expert and owner of Bed Guru also shared that all meals should be eaten in the kitchen only. "The bedroom should be a harmonious and calming place, and if there are clothes on the floor or crumbs in the bed, you will feel distracted, which can cause your mind to feel overwhelmed, and it could impact your sleep," they said. "This could lead to a strained relationship with your partner, as sleep deprivation can be a number one cause of mood swings, and mood swings can often make you irritated with the people closest to you."
Meanwhile, 38.08 percent of poll takers were upset with their partner for leaving clothes on the floor, while 35.76 percent of people didn't like when their significant other snored.
Not making the bed, duvet hogging, leaving the bedroom light on at night, not closing wardrobes or drawers properly also topped the list.
Surprisingly, only 13.13 percent of poll takers were annoyed when their partner would play on the phone at bedtime.
The company also asked respondents if they would sleep in a spare room if the pet peeves didn't stop — and 43.69 percent of Brits said they would!
