London: Is she always cribbing about her weight? Is her habit of dressing for long hours irritating? Well, little habits of women annoy men the most.

Novelist Giles Coren sheds light on the habits of women that annoy men the most, a newspaper reports.

Never ordering a dessert, then eating mine
"Ooh no, I'm full. I couldn't possibly eat any pudding, I'm stuffed," she says. And when my treacle pudding arrives she would have one spoon after another and finish the whole thing.

Failing to grasp that she moults
Every now and then her hair would block the shower plughole for which she would say, "That's not necessarily mine!"

Making a huge fuss about how important it is that women players get the same Wimbledon prize money as male players
