Things that you do that you're not sure if other people do


#1

When I’ve got two eggs left, I will place them into opposite corners of the box so that the weight is more evenly distributed, thus reducing the chances of the box falling on the floor when I go to take it out the fridge


#2

when i scratch one leg/arm/side/whatever, i then have to do the same on the other side to even it out.


#3

also get urges to press a certain button on my phone or the remote control even if it will do the opposite of what i want to do, like exit an app or turn the tv off (with the remote i just point it into myself and then press it and it won’t have any effect, with my phone i can hold the button down and bring up the active apps list instead)


#4

Avoid going in the same shop twice in one day
Even if I’d like to, I’ll just go to a different shop despite it adding a few minutes on the journey
Don’t wanna see overly keen do I

I do have a sort of similar thing but for me it’s only if it’s a right limb sensation, and I am right handed.

It pretty much comes down to having to step on bubbly pavement tiles with the left foot if I have put the right foot on them.

It has lessened as I’ve got older but I am glad wedding rings are for the left hand as I couldn’t take only having a ring on my right.


#6

I used to have something similar except it was making sure that i stepped on consecutive even numbers of drains or manhole covers. Took me years to make myself comfortable with stepping on odd numbers.


#7

When I want a short break at work I’ll go stand in the toilet cubicle and play football manager on my phone.


#8

I totally get you with the eggs thing. But I don’t keep my eggs in a box. Or in the fridge. But, yeah, I’m on board.


#9

i do this as well launchpad, but i don’t keep eggs in the fridge as i’m not psychotic


#10

hahaha :slight_smile:


#11

Paper money in my pocket is always in denominational order with the Queen’s head in the same place.


#12

I have a slightly similar thing where if I nearly touch something (door frame, handles, anything, really…) then I have an urge to go back and do a definite touch. Right now my little finger was nearly touching the bottom of my phone. And I succumbed to making a definite connection rather than have it hanging there in the excruciating near vicinity.

I’ve a vague notion it’s something to do with a friend telling me that the sun would blow up if you don’t properly touch stuff. Or something. 28, we were! (We were about 3 or 4.)

(Lotta talk of touching in this reply. Hmmmmm.)


#13

#14

#15

Dance with myself in the mirror.


#16

make ‘your mum’ jokes


#17

Cock facing?


#18

You might wanna rename this ‘the OCD thread’?! :wink:


#19

Yeah I do this. Not Football Manager though, usually just go on Facebook or play a game. Another girl in my team does it too. It’s good, helps break the day up!


#20

Defo the egg thing. Regardless of the number left.
