Over-blinking…someone please make it stop

I’ve encountered a few people in my lifetime that just blink too damn much. I don’t know if there is always something in their eye(s) or if they should constantly be wearing sunglasses because the light is just too hard for them to handle…regardless, it is annoying as hell.

For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, please watch the clip below of actor James Scott from Days of Our Lives. You might want to forward to 31 seconds in, because that’s when he starts speaking.

See how he blinks way more than the average person??? Now don’t get me wrong, James Scott is one of the hottest men I’ve ever seen. Fabulous smile, amazing accent, nice body, but he needs to start attending over-blinkers anonymous meetings. Back when I watched Days of Our Lives I couldn’t properly focus on his hotness thanks to the stupid blinking.

It’s even worse when I encounter people with this issue in person. I find it super distracting. I have a hard time paying attention because I keep looking at the blinking and wondering what their deal is. I know it’s wrong, but I’m dying to ask them to stop. Plus, I don’t think “I have no idea what you just said, because your massive amount of blinking is making me lose focus.” or “would you stop that excessive blinking already?” would go over so well.

Ultimately, I know there is nothing I can do about this and I just have to deal, but I can’t help but wonder if I’m the only one that this bothers? Share below, if you’d like.
