A popular health and fitness blogger shared what gives her the ‘ick’ after two years of marriage – and her husband returned the favour.
Sarah Stevenson, from Sydney, posted a TikTok on her account ‘Sarah’s Day’ with her husband Kurt sharing the top three annoying and infuriating habits the other person has.
‘We’ve been married for two years and this is what gives us the ick about each other,’ Sarah said at the start of her video.
An ‘ick’ is a trait that leads to someone being immediately turned off and unattracted to another; they’re usually oddly specific.

Aussie women confess their biggest relationship icks
Sarah started with something fairly inoffensive – the sound Kurt makes when he scratches his beard.
‘The way you always scratch your beard when you’re contemplating something – the sound – it’s a big one for me,’ she said.
She also took issue with several of Kurt’s driving habits.
‘Secondly, you can’t talk and drive at the same time – you cannot multitask,’ she said.
The influencer then turned to her viewers and revealed: ‘If we’re driving and I ask him what we should have for dinner, he will stop before he can answer my question.’
An ‘ick’ is generally defined as a trait that counts as an immediate turn off and makes you less attracted to a person

* Avoiding introducing you to friends
* Always saying they are busy
* Failure to hold eye contact
* A niggling doubt or gut feeling that something isn’t quite right
The mum-of-two also could not stand how her husband had to stop at every pedestrian crossing, no matter how empty the roads were.
‘At every pedestrian crossing – even if there’s no one – even if we’re in a desert town, he’ll stop,’ she said. ‘It’s safe but it’s really annoying.’
Lastly, Sarah was ‘grossed out’ by Kurt’s unsanitary practice in her car.
‘Every time you drive my car you pick your nose and flick a booger ball onto the floor,’ she said. ‘You don’t even have the curtesy of flicking it out the window – it’s always on the floor of my car.’

On the other hand, Kurt was generous when it came to revealing which of his wife’s habits bothered him
On the other hand, Kurt was generous when it came to revealing which of his wife’s habits bothered him.
‘I hate it when you ask me to get your keys from your bag because there are about eight bags, and in every single one of those bags there are way too many items!’
His wife’s television habits were also difficult to deal with.
‘Every time we watch a female show like The Kardashians or something like that – Sarah decides she has to get angry at me if I scroll on my phone,’ he revealed angrily.
Kurt added, ‘It’s a boring show! I don’t want to watch it.’
The entrepreneur’s final ick was hilariously telling.
‘Most nights our bedroom smells like a gas chamber … and it’s not because of me.’
Thousands thanked the couple for their ‘open’ and ‘honest’ portrayal of how married couples can still annoy each other and have it be responded to in a healthy way.
‘I like that the both of you can poke fun at each other,’ a woman said.
Another added, ‘This is so funny and relatable!’
