What are some silly and anxious things that you MUST do and what does that say about you.

1) If at a railroad crossing and there is a train going by, I must count the cars.

2) I have a Keurig coffee maker with a carousel to keep my Keurig coffees in. I cannot have two identical ones be right next to one another.

3) When helping my mother line dry her clothes on her clothes line. I must have partnered socks hung next to each other.

4) While going through a tunnel I must honk my horn,... at least just once.

5) When greeting someone at a doorway. I will not shake their hand over the threshold of the door. I will either go out or the person I am greeting must come in before I will shake their hand.

Idk why I do these things, but if I don't I get anxious. It's not freak out type anxiety, but I cann feel being uneasy if I don't do these things.

Ok SI peeps, your turn. Spill it.

At work on my computer, I have to open my email first, then my browser, then my files. If the email or browser close accidentally, I have to close everything and start again.

When driving under a low overhang (like a parking garage), I have to duck my head.

If I'm in a store, and something is obviously out of place, I have to move it to the right place. This is usually only things in bins, like yarn.

1. I can't go to bed without straightening the pillows on the couch.

2. I have to dry out the inside of the coffee maker every morning after MH is done with coffee because God knows a wet coffee machine will send me over the edge

3. I unload the groceries out of our cart at check out by category. Produce, cold things, paper goods, etc.

4. I have to keep two rolls of paper towels under the kitchen sink.

5. I hold my breathe going past a cemetery.

1. If I have chips, nuts, etc...on my plate, I must eat the broken ones first and work my way up to the whole ones in size order.

2. My money must face the same way and be in order from smallest to largest denomination. Coins don't matter.

3. I cannot stand to read a paper if somebody got to it first and got all of the sections out of order.

Broken, you wouldn't last long in Pittsburgh - there are tunnels everywhere.

I have a food thing. I don't like it if my food touches each other on a plate. I also eat all of one type of food before moving on to another food.

.

Yep.

4. I have to keep two rolls of paper towels under the kitchen sink.

Check

I can't go to bed without straightening the pillows on the couch.

Sort of, I can't go to bed unless the kitchen is clean and tidy

1. If I have chips, nuts, etc...on my plate, I must eat the broken ones first and work my way up to the whole ones in size order. .

Yep, this with m&m's, candy, nuts etc. Smarties go in colour order and the red ones are last. (Canadian/Brits will likely know what I'm talking about)

I count stuff all the time. Going down stairs, I count as I'm cutting vegetables.

I can't put a book down if I am on a page that is 13. Not just the number but say page 76, that adds up to 13. This has gotten better with e versions of books. I normally don't even know what page I am on. I do have to at least finish the paragraph I'm on if I can't get to the end of the chapter or a break within the chapter.

Let's just say that I have mentioned some of these to my IC.

Ummm... yep.

I've been known to correct the bagger (gently, of course) if he/she messes up my organization.

And

This

I have to turn the sound all the way down on whatever TV I'm watching before I turn it off.

I can't go to bed with a messy kitchen.

I always put my shoes on right foot then left foot.

Home game rituals start a week before the game and continue until after the game.

Jrazz posted 9/10/2013 14:36 PM

That comment is useless without description of said rituals.

nowiknow23 posted 9/10/2013 14:36 PM

Ah, Jpapa. I was wondering where you were. I expected you three responses ago.

broken2 posted 9/10/2013 15:34 PM

Yeah Williesmom I know, use to live in a place where there were tunnels galore, use to drive the person I was driving with nuts. I loved it,... go figure..

the tv volume
the radio volume
the volume of my phone ringer
the temp on the thermostat
the timer on the oven/microwave
the # of a plants in a bed
the page of a book I stop on
the # of pillows on the couch
the # of deviled eggs (or any individual cooked item)
the # of emoticons used in a row.. example:

= evil

= good


all must be odd numbers. Cause even numbers are evil.

Grocery belt order too. Even the kids get irritated when people put their items in the "wrong" order on the belt ...it must be an inherited thing .

The short description is that all heck breaks loose if the local Carl's Jr. does not have Dr. Pepper (dealbreaker week before last) or if I put the earbud in the wrong ear for a specific Quarter. Yes my temporary body art, Friday meal, sleep pattern and choice of sleep wear Friday night, the position of my class ring, the order in which I put in the gameday earrings, the order in which my backpack is packed with the clothes that only stay in my backpack and are never worn for the season, the method I remove the tickets from their book, Saturday morning spider solitaire game, Saturday breakfast, parking space, peanuts, and midgame meal all have an effect on the outcome of a game.

When I turn on my car, the buttons have to be facing me. I've been know to turn off the car to fix the "problem." When turning off the car, I first turn off the lights, AC/heater, radio, then the car.

Pens always must have their caps on unless I'm using it. The pens must also always have the tip pointing up (even with caps on) when I'm not using them.

All the presidents must be facing the same direction in my wallet. All papers I collect at school must be facing the same direction.

Omigod; the X was like this. I thought he was just a pain in the ass, but I love you, lies, so I guess I was wrong...
