Everybody's got one...

I count stairs... not sure why. Found out a couple of years ago my dad does the same thing. It doesn't matter if I've counted the stairs 100 times before, I still count 'em. As a plus, that habit has come in handy when the power's gone out and I had to go down/up stairs when it's pitch black.

Seriously, I'd say everybody has a few things that could be called OCD. But it certainly isn't disabling... just kind of a funny trait.

I tend to do that too, although I haven't since I've lived here. Odd.

I used to do the same thing with telephone poles while driving (or riding) down the street. Count them as I went by. I always close the closet door before I go to bed. Damn, hard to think of something interesting on the spot. Probably so habitual, I don't realize I'm doing it.

I'm like Eddie Murphy, for some reason if it's a public restroom I have to flush the urinal as soon as the waterworks start. Not after I'm done, while I'm going...

My strange habit tonight is half-watching a Japanese film (with subtitles). I don't know what it's about, there's a lot of talking (that I don't understand, because the TV is behind me) and it has geishas. I keep turning around hoping for some T&A. But with my luck it'll be a samurai unsheathing his 'sword'.

Must... avoid... raw... hands... joke... :)

I don't know, mine would probably be that if I'm grabbing a newspaper, I always grab the 2nd one out of the stack. People always flip through the top one... I don't think I'd go insane if I didn't do it or anything, it's just something I do.

I have a tendency to whistle while riding an elevator. Don't know why, guess it must be some latent apprehension, because I've noticed myself making the same whistle in other stressful situations. I honestly don't consciously feel the apprehension, though.

I swerve for any boxes on the side of the road, though I think that's less of a habit and more of a post traumatic stress disorder thing.



As for weird stuff, I don't like having any clothing on my back when I take a crap. This is especially true when I wear a suit, the jacket MUST come off before I sit down on the toilet.

Yeah, I do the same thing for cats.

I have a habit of highlighting a block of words with my mouse while I'm reading - for no reason at all. The habit is so bad, it made using a cordless mouse financially debilitating due to the batteries I was going through. No joke. I went back to corded very quickly.

I have to wash my hands as soon as I wake up in the morning. Even if I head straight to the shower my hands get washed first.

My wife thinks I'm crazy but I contend its a good idea because I don't know if I scratched my ass or my balls while I was sleeping.

Hmm. Weird habits...weird habits...

I have a lot of trouble leaving a light on when I leave a room. When I leave our break room at work, I have to fight the urge to turn the light off, even though I know that someone else will probably be in in ten minutes.

I have to touch the stove before I leave the house to make sure that it's off, but I only have to do that if it was used during the previous 24 hours or so.

Other than that stuff, I think I present an image of normalcy to those who don't know me.

I recycle characters while typing on the computer.

Suppose I want to edit:

"John Elway has a whore's face" to read "John Elway has a horse's face" Rather than deleting the word "whore's" and tying in "horse's" I'll perserve the perfectly good characters h, o, r, e, ' and s and just delete the w and inset the extra s. Never retype a letter if you can find a good one to reuse that you've already typed.

I only keep checks that I've written for bills. Checks for grocery and such I throw away when they come from the bank. Therefore, I find myself going out of my way to write the more important checks on checks with round or otherwise unique numbers.

That's funny ... for me it's 5. If I tap on my desk with a pen I have to do it in groups of 5.

I used to flush urinals while doing my duty, but i stopped that after I got splashed a few times by some over-eager urinals.

Another is the dishwasher ... when I load it everything has to be stacked "spacially efficient" -- the tallest cups go on the deepest rack, the shorter ones on the shallow one, plates all have to be lined up, etc.

I had/have the same problem ... my batteries would last about 10 days. I still think something might have been wrong with the mouse though. Either way, I called Logitech to complain and they sent me out a whole new set up for free last week. I'm waiting to see how long the batteries last this time.

I should have bought a rechargeable in the first place.

That reminds me of another quirk I'd recently noticed about myself. When I eat business lunches on the road by myself, I am very anal about the eating space. Move the condiments over the corner, have my stack of napkins xx inches from my non-fork-wielding hand, stack the dishes/glasses I have finished neatly at the corner of the table, etc. Part of me worries it's OCD, but I've rationalized. I; 1) hate to come across as a messy eater, 2) hate to come across as a difficult customer, 3) like to read the newspaer while I eat [kind of a break from whatever legal wrangling has me travelling this time]. So I just set things up to be as quiet, neat, and unobtrusive as possible.

speaking of eating habits, my son had a strange one, he used to eat each thing on his plate individually, like all his pot, then all his corn, the something else, he would eat each thing till it was gone then start on another, I haven't noticed if he still does it or not, but he was still doing it 2 years ago when he was still living at home

Oh, when I was little, I ate everything one at a time, and NOTHING COULD TOUCH. Started with the stuff that's demonstrably gross touching [spinach and pudding, apple sauce and beef gravy, etc. . . Oh! And pork'n'beans and cottage cheese, which my dad put together ON PURPOSE!!! Bleechh!!!] and expanded from there.

EXACTLY, he done the same thing, I'd forgot about that part, I had to put small portions on his plate to leave space that they wouldn't touch, when he was really little he'd through a fit if his food touched, at 13 he still was eating them one at a time I noticed, but I had quit really paying much attention by then. Strange you had that habit too, I thought he was really being wierd :)

interesting thread

I do the highlight text thing but have never had a problem with cordless mouse batteries :shrug:

I do the flushing the urinal thing

I can not, can not leave food on a plate. Even if I know I shouldn't finish it because it'll make me sick I have to eat it. I think its from being in a family of 5 living off one income of a South Dakota teacher, not that food was scarce or anything but if you had it you ate it and fast. I guess I also eat incredibly fast too. When I went to basic training most people complained about how fast they had to eat, but I had to actually slow down. Everyone at the table had to get up as soon as the first person was done, and for the first week people hated me for eating so fast and would avoid sitting at my table or directly behind my table. I was ignorant to the entire thing for a while but once I figured it out I just slowed down so they could finish their meals. And I also do the eat one thing at a time thing, but not for any other reason than switching from one thing to the other slows me down.

I'm obsessive about any type of game, I just can't put them down until they have been completely explored/defeated. I can do the same boring game for over 40 hours straight if that's what it takes. I should have never gotten into MMORPG's because they ate me alive. same thing with poker, I've played for over 60 hours before. The most extreme example of the time/boredom factor is when I was deployed I played almost 1000 games of spider solitaire without quitting, over the span of I'm over 24 hours. I can stare at a wall for 8 hours without getting bored.

I love going on long drives, I did 32 hours without stopping except for gas, and the only thing I did was math in my head (I'm no mathematician) but I love to count seconds between mile markers to convert speed, and use that and exactly how many miles are left to my destination to determine when is the exact time I will arrive. I've gone on so many road trips and paid such close attention to speed/time/stops that I've become very accurate at guessing when I'm going to show up. My range of deviation for every 12 hours on the road over my last 6 road trips has been 14.5 minutes. One time on a trip that mapquested at aprox 14 hours I called the person I was visiting when I left and predicted I would show up at 4:07 PM, which was 12 hours 13 minutes and 25 seconds from the time of prediction and I hit it dead on, I was impressed with myself.

that's about it.

I used to be exactly the same way, nothing could touch and ate one thing until it was done and moved onto the next.

I'm nowhere near as bad as I used to be, though I still don't like my foods to intermingle and occassionly still will eat one thing until it is gone before starting the next, sometime i have to make a conscious effort to try and take a bite of something else.

I have perfect pitch. It's useful for a lot of things, but say I'm listening to the choir in church, and one of the sopranos is flat with the rest of them, and the baritones are all singing different notes, it will drive me crazy. Most people just say "eww" and continue listening, but not only to I get chills up my spine, cringe, and so forth, but I also make weird expressions with my face. Once our choir sang a "new age" piece where they all sing a random note and waver back and forth for about 10 seconds. The effect in the audience is a surreal mood. For me, my ear was trying to hear each note and it was unable to, since everyone was changing. Someone next to me said I was twitching and tweaking out.

Also, I like to keep my stapler inside my 3-hole puncher on my desk. If someone uses my stapler and puts it back outside the 3-hole puncher, I immediately move it back inside. Someone finally noticed I do that all the time the other day, so they kept moved it back outside.

Not afraid of smiting, just something my parents did when I was a kid, so I did it and now my kids do it. I'm sure it orginated from my grandparents, who were very religious.

The blonde woman thing - nothing exotic, it just seems like it would be bad luck to gamble when a blonde is dealing. Now that I think of it, I've never even dated a blonde. :hmmm:

I have a habit of highlighting a block of words with my mouse while I'm reading - for no reason at all. The habit is so bad, it made using a cordless mouse financially debilitating due to the batteries I was going through. No joke. I went back to corded very quickly.

ehh, didn't realize I did that til I read it while it was highlighted.

For me, everything has it's place.
Like clothes in my closet.
After I've worn them, and they've been washed, theyt must be hung in exactly the same place, next to exactly the same clothes they were before.

Also, when I eat at fast food restaurants, I have to unfold the napkins I use, and refold them the exact opposite way they were.

And unlike some/most, I love mixing my foods, but I have to get them completely mixed, and my breads/biscuits/buns have to be buttered/jellied before I will take my first bite of food.

Table setting. It must always be like this: Plate in middle (obviously) with fork and napkin to the right. The napkin must be folded and slightly tucked under the plate with the fork resting on top of the napkin. At the top of the setting on the right side goes the cup. Then on the left side is the knife and spoon. If the setting is different (even in a fine restaurant) I must set it to my way.

Everything has to be on the right, except the napkin, which goes to the left, but can't be touching the plate.

I also have a VERY specific routine for getting ready for work when I get up...

I get up, brush my teeth, get in the shower, wash my body, wash my hair, get out, dry, comb my hair, put in my contacts, put on deoderant, socks, pants, shirt, shoes. It MUST be this routine. It has happened before where I forgot to brush my teeth first, and I got out of the shower to do it, then got back in and picked up my routine.

Whenever I get a Coke or any drink at a drive through or convience store, any cup with the plastic lids that have the buttons on top to press and identify what flavor of drink you have; I HAVE TO push in every one of those buttons every time! And if you are with me and have gotten a drink as well I have to push yours in also! Not sure what the deal is but I can't go without pushing those in.

Another one I have is when I grope my wife I have to feel each breast seperately and then both together; drives her friggin nuts, but if I just feel one and not the other or skip both at the same time I get this unbelievabe feeling on angst and anguish! I need alot of help! LOL

I tend to eat a lot of mayonnaise. Sometimes I will just eat it straight out of the jar. I also love to dip fries in it and I put a ton of that shit on any sandwich I eat.

I'm not sure if this is strange, but I prefer to dip my burger in ketchup and mayo instead of putting it directly on the burger itself.

I never set alarm clocks at coventional times. For instance, If I want to get up at 6am, I'll set the clock for something like 5:57 or 6:02
When I set my alarm, it has to have a 7 in it... usually in the single digit's place. For instance, currently it's set for 6:27. If I had to wake up at 7, it would be set for either 6:57 or 7:07.
I won't let the TV or radio volume level sit at 13. If I casually turn the volume up or down, and it lands on 13, I have to go out of my way to make it 14 or 12.
I also can't stop reading a book before, after or during chapter 13. If I have to go soon, and I'm nearing ch 13, I stop where I am. If I'm nearing the end of ch 13, I have to not only finish it, but read part of ch 14.

On Chiefs Sundays I have my morning coffee out of my lucky Chiefs coffee mug. I've had it ever since I first started drinking coffee in High School, and I only use it on Chiefs Sundays, There was one morning I didn't use it, and that was the day Derrick Thomas had 7 sacks on Dave Kreig, and we lost on the last play of the game.

I use it every time now. And sometimes it helps (beating the Raiders on Christmas) sometimes it doesn't (losing to Indy in playoffs).

But I've used the exact same coffee cup since around 1976. How bout that?
