    Noir, this thread wasn't intended to insinuate your strange habits, just generalized odd behavior is all.

    I USED to only fill the utensil tray in the dishwasher, left to right, one at a time and aimed for same amount of silverware in every container. If someone put their dishes away and the silverware was placed out of order, I would get very agitated! If it got messed up enough or I was so easily annoyed, I would start all over again. I stopped doing it after my son was born. Realized I was wastingtime and it wasn't worth the stress--now I go for the faster the better.

    All my (an my team's) Excel worksheets must have an unused 10 pixel tall row in row 1 and 10 pixel wide column in column A. Once the worksheet is complete, gridlines shall be hid.

    ...and yes, everyone should do doing the bill thing.

    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.
    Hahah! I really don't have a long thought out explanation for why I do this to my radio. I've been getting out of the "5" thing because my new car's system is sensitive. I try to leave the volume at 10, but if I want to turn it up a little, it would either have to be 12 or 15. After 15, it must stay at an increment of 5.

    Can I invite some of you over to clean my house? I don't mind if you "fix" the vloume settings or towels while you're at it. I'm a slob and wish I was a bit OCD. Not OCD at all. I do like the number 5 though.

    Odd numbers not in increments of five can go directly to hell. And to hell with your god as well, even numbers are the only way to salvation. Other than 5, as previously mentioned.

    I tend to sort my bills in order with largest denominations at the back... but it doesn't bother me the slightest bit if they are out of order. And I hardly pay attention to the way the bills face.

    You can still freeze panes all day long. I do it because you can't see border formatting on the top of the top row and left of the left column in Excel without doing print-preview. I used to add a similar column and row at the right and bottom of all my sheets and hide all unused columns and rows, but that was pretty anal and crashed excel more than you'd think.

    This is nothing I do, but really bothers me. When I see random numbers it drives me nuts. I.E. there is a store here that says the capacity is 132. It bothers me that is isn't 130.

    The volume numbering thing is so confusing to me. Why do you people not just set it to where it sounds like what you want?

    TV shows can sound perfectly fine at a volume of 15, but once a commercial comes on, it can sound like the volume got turned up to 25, necessitating a reduction in the volume so that the TV isn't too loud. Or a show on one channel can sound fine at a certain volume, then you change the channel to another show that is too low at that same volume level. Same thing with the radio (namely CDs or MP3s streaming on my iPhone). Considering what you do for work, I'm surprised you would ask this question. Not everything is recorded or broadcast at the same level of volume.

    I have to agree. I always mute the TV when commercials come on, I don't like the feeling that someone is yelling at me.

    I don't think that was what Drinkey was asking. It's the need to adjust the volume to a specific number. Why would you do that at any level?

    I don't have an explanation. I just know if I notice that the number is even I will feel compelled to turn it up or down even just one number to make the number odd.

    But the question is still weird. Why do you like that shade of green? Why is _______ so much more important to you than to most people? It is often just how people are.

    I have to touch my nose to any item of food before I eat it for 7 seconds and preferably it has to be on the plate I'm going to eat it off of (so that my hands don't have to touch the food).

    This is one reason why my TV volume is almost always at 0.

    I require clean bongs for smoking. I will throw away a bowl to make a point of "you're wasting good pot by smoking it thru this filthy bong". People should clean the tools they use daily.
