Let’s admit it, we all know some very lazy people in our lives. You know why they can be lazy? Because they are more manipulative than the rest of us.
Lazy people are unmotivated, don’t care, and do very little for themselves unless absolutely necessary. You know why they are smarter? Because they figured out the way to get everyone to do everything for them, so they don’t have to.
50 habits of lazy people
Admittedly, even if I could figure out how to get things done for me, I probably wouldn’t. Being lazy is a choice and not one I could choose. I am a mover by nature. But, that doesn’t mean that I don’t give those who sit back and let everyone else work the props they deserve.
#1 You have every automated app that exists. The new world of automation is your oyster. You don’t get up to turn on the lights, to change the temperature of the room, or to change the channel. You just sit back and be lazy.
#9 Since you didn’t put your clean laundry away, you made it dirty again by throwing your dirty clothes on top. So, you just wash it all again. Of course, you have someone else picking it up off your floor and washing it. No skin off of your back!
#10 What’s a store? You haven’t been inside a store since Amazon launched.
#11 If someone else’s stuff is in the dryer and you need it, you just throw it on the floor. Not your problem.
#12 You keep food leftovers sitting in bed with you. Now you have a morning snack.
#13 Every utensil, plate, or glass in your house is disposable. Even if it isn’t, you make it one instead of washing it.
#14 You don’t flush the toilet after using it. Far too much work to pull the lever. Number two or one, makes no difference.
#15 You wear your clothes to bed, so you don’t have to change in the morning. Even lazier? You wear your pajamas underneath your clothes, so that all you have to do is take your clothes off at night.
#16 When you make a midnight snack, the house wakes up to your mess. Food spoiled on the counter, all the lights on, and the mess you made making and taking food to your bed, all over the kitchen.
#17 Your dog shits on the floor. You just pretend not to see it, so that someone else will clean it up.
#35 The back seat of your car is occupied. With trash, not passengers.
#36 You stick your gum to the bottom of your chair. Yep, lazy in every generation.
#37 You have a gym membership that you don’t use. Lazy people trick? Keep paying and don’t cancel.
#38 Everything in your refrigerator tastes the same. Who has time to put leftovers in Tupperware?
#39 Everything in your pantry is stale. You can’t fold over the top of a potato chip bag.
#40 And, when you take one and find out they’re stale, you leave the container right where it is. No time to walk to the trash can.
#41 You spend about $100 a month on subscriptions and things you don’t want. You’re too lazy to go over your credit card statements.
#42 RSVP takes too much of your precious time. You didn’t respond to your best friend’s wedding even though there was a stamp on the reservation card. You were too lazy to take it to the mailbox. [Read: 10 simple rules to not be rude]
#43 Let me just step around this. You walk around the same shirt laying on the floor for a month without picking it up.
#44 Your spring grass looks like fall. Lazy people don’t have time to rake the prior seasons.
#45 Is it cold in here? You have your air conditioning running from the beginning of summer until the beginning of winter because you’re too lazy to regulate the temperature by opening and closing windows.
#46 Where’s your nightstand? It’s so littered with cups that you move them onto the floor to make room for more.
#47 Is there room in your shower for one more? You have twenty empty bottles of shampoo in your shower along with the dull razor collection you started two years ago.
#48 You got the boot. The no parking zones are easier because you’d rather get a ticket than park 200 feet further.
#50 You’re too lazy to get a pen, so you just use your lipstick. It’s kind of the same.
Living with lazy people drives you crazy if you aren’t lazy yourself. But, you have to admire the way they go through life seemingly without a care in the world, and with a world to do things for them.
