I was just mimiced on the elevator for tapping on a box. I said I had to practice and be glad I don't play a saxophone.

I cant stop tapping either. Its bad at school, I'm constantly tapping out rudiments, triplets between hands and feet etc. I also got badly yelled when I was teaching the whole class how to spin pens and pencils like drumsticks. It would wind up my Spanish teacher so badly........Good times!

i tend to not do it while i'm busy
but when i get particularly bored i start banging on my desk and tapping my foot wihtout even realizing that i might be annoying because i'm thinking out a beat and its actually kinda fun, but someone always turns around and yells at me (especially teachers who say i am being annoying by it, which is weird because i'm usually pretty chill but i guess that tapping is just a habit of mine when i get boredand i dont notice it much)

but no one appreciates my desk slapping solos as much as me so i try to refrain from doing it loudly, such as after someone tells me to stop i continue but at such a low volume that i can barely hear it
Just a while ago, my soul was confused, amused

Yeah I know exactly what you guys are talking about, almost everything I do has to be percussive in some way, opening doors, walking down stairs, sometimes when I turn on light switches I do this tapping thing with my fingers even. It doesnt seem to annoy other people that much, but when I hear other people doing it (like this one guitarist I jam with) it annoys the hell out of me!

I actually flip the turn indicator in my truck in time, I hear rhythm in anything, my dryer is running right now and I hear a rhythm.

Face it we can't avoid, if we could we would be guitarists ;-)

..I know what you mean about hearing rhythms in dryers. If my dog is panting, I'm trying to listen for the accents in the pants : )
