I usually haven't any problems with the english terms. But I just came across of the following sentence and I wonder why there is used Past Continious in the first part instead of Simple Past.
She was so annoying! She was always leaving her dirty dishes in the sink. I think she actually expected me to do them for her.
Could you please explain it to me?

Thank you to both of you. Now I see much clearer
