Am I anal retentive?

I noticed today that I always do my laundry in the same order. Jeans, colors, whites, towels, sheets. I also always put the toilet paper on the roll to where it comes over the top. I always take my glasses and watch off in the same place. I organize my closet by putting all of my work attire together, short sleeved shirts together, long sleeved shirts together, jeans together, etc.

Should I be worrying? Or are these just considered habits?

The fact that you are thinking about it could indicate some anal retentiveness.

I just noticed the one thing (my laundry order), and it just made me think.

Whew! Okay. I decided to swap and wash the whites before the colors, and it's not bothering me. I could never change the toilet paper habit, so I guess I'm a little anal.

A few more things that are obvious. I'm bored, and I think too much.

Bob Dole always washes his clothes in the same order.

First load consists of the items in the big pile closest to the washing machine. Second load consists of everything that didn't fit in the first load.

Good thing about washing jeans is that I now have 70 cents accumulated and laying on my dryer. A few more loads of jeans, and I'll be able to buy a soda.

You seem more obsessive compulsive than anal retentive by what you wrote.

Maybe that's what I'm thinking of. I'm behind on my psych terminology. WHat's the difference between the two again?

I think Anal retentive people are clean freaks and obsessive (maybe it's accessive), compulsive people as the kind of people who have to divide their bag of m&ms by color before they can eat them, or they have to do things in a specific order. You seem like a mixture of the two.

I did ... but not any more. When it take you that long to answer me, you might as well have just come out with the truth and left me this note (http://img253.imageshack.us/img253/3844/homework7qo.jpg). :(

You lack sticktoittiveness. You never know. Maybe the third time would have been a charm.

Hey, wait a minute. I suddenly feel like Chalie Brown. This smacks of Lucy pulling away the football at the last minute.
