I find it funny that no one has chimed in with additional pet peeves or come back with annoying habits of leads. Hmm.


Of the OP's list, I think the one that would bother me the most would be the ponytail.  the dance related stuff could be because the follow is an inexperienced dancer.  But repeatedly smacking somebody in the face with your hair, just so you can make a fashion statement?  Yikes. How rude.

Well, if you change the words from follow to lead, then you have a pretty good list for a bad lead ;-). What goes around comes around.

Personally, I am ok with ponytail...but then I don't do salsa, so maybe I would change my perspective on that...

Think ten high speed spins in a row, all in close proximity to a ponytail.

For maximum effect attach beads in the ends of your hair....

I think the ensuing lacerations might take the term annoying follow to a whole new level.  Grin

Yes, and the law suit would be interesting too...

I guess the lead could get their own back with the first winklepicker steel-tipped dance shoes.. Oouch..

Winklepickers, or winkle pickers, are a style of shoe or boot worn from the 1950s onward by male and female British rock and roll fans. The feature that gives both the boot and shoe their name is the very sharp and quite long pointed toe, reminiscent of medieval footwear and approximately the same as the long pointed toes on some women's high-fashion shoes and boots in the late 2000s. The pointed toe was called the winkle picker toe because in England periwinkle snails, or winkles, were a popular seaside snack which is eaten using a pin or other pointed object to extract the soft parts out of the coiled shell carefully, hence the phrase: "to winkle something out", and from that, winklepickers became a humorous name for shoes with a very pointed tip.

Oy.  That is hilarious, but no way am I dancing with anyone who wears them.  Full stop.

you get to wear them too - and the originals were not steel capped at all.  Just a very pointy leather prong...  they looked totally absurd.
