    Default Anal Retentive Qualities Sure to Annoy

    Do you have a habit that requires extensive overseeing every detail? Maybe a quality that got you dumped (i.e. Looking at each piece of popcorn you eat before finally enjoying). When you witness someone else disturbing one of your obsessions, your eyes dialate and you go into "maniac/fix-it mode". Pictures are always welcome.

    I am fanatic about the way my towels are folded. Hamburger style once, followed by the same directional fold, then finally fold over. This way, the towel band at the ends is in sight and aesthetically appealing, so it looks like this:

    Oh, I also HATE filthy floorboards, especially in my bathrooms. GAH I usually try not to nag about this, if ever, so instead I handle it myself.

    OBob, you would get along great with my sister and mother. I purposely fold my towels all wonky just as a rebellion to my teen years.

    All the bills in my wallet need to face the same way and must be in order from smallest denomination to largest.

    I do this too.

    I can't stand beds with sheets/blankets tucked in, so whenever I travel the first thing I do is untuck the bedding of the hotel beds.

    Ew. I try not to think of that, in my happy little world they use brand new sheets whenever someone checks out. I like the color of the sky in my world, stop trying to fuck it up.

    My volume has to be an odd number.

    I also count crows and am extremely bothered by groups of 3.

    It's the insistence on it that is more likely to get annoying.

    Like I don't care how anyone else folds their towels - for example - but if someone gets upset at me when I don't fold towels that way....

    If I'm out drinking, doesn't matter if it's a friend's place or the pub, at a certain level of buzzness, I start cleaning.
    I, actually, cleaned someone's bathroom once.

    I've only recently started doing this due to my previous cash handling job. My horrible bitch of a boss threatened a write up if we didn't face every bill.

    When I was little my mom ran a bar and had to close every night, one of my fond memories from childhood was in the summertime getting to go help her close the bar after everyone left and count all the money they made that night. She made us put all the money in the same direction before getting it ready for her to deposit. I have done this ever since.

    Whenever my boyfriend gets in the car to drive he has to knock on the steering wheel 3 times, if the knock doesn't go "correctly" he has to start over. If at any point during the drive he thinks about an accident or getting pulled over he starts all over. He does it very secretly though and it took 2 years of dating before I finally picked up on it. I have now taken on the habit.

    Kind of the same here, and on the TV especially. I've even managed to get Jen to adhere to it when I'm not around. Sometimes she'll try to stop the volume at, say, 24 and I'll just have to glance over and she knows she done fucked up.

    My numbering is a little flexible, though. If 15 is too low in my car, but 20 is too high, 17 is acceptable (even though 18 should be, because 17.5 would round up to 18 and 18 is the last even number of the teens). Maybe it's something to do with the 7. In the 20s, 22 is fine because it's a palindrome number, and 23 is fine for the same reason 18 would be (22.5 rounding up). But although 22 is fine, 11 isn't. It's got to be either 10 or 13.

    It's all very elaborate and long thought about.
