Odd Habits..Toilet Paper

United States
January 30, 2007 8:16pm CST
What is one odd habit that most people do not know about you? Something really strange that you have kept to yourself...come on now...its time to share! And why do you do it? I have a weird thing about toilet paper rolls. I have to have the roll feeding over the top. The weird part about this, I even change them at friends houses. Public bathrooms if I can...I just feel very strongly that the paper should be coming over the top. Its quicker, with less tearing before you've acquired the right amount of squares!

I can't stand dirty glass. From windows to picture frames and TV screens. I can't stand it. I drives me nuts to go to someone's house and see spots or finger prints on their window or the TV. I have to fight the urge to get up and wipe it clean. It's a sick compulsion for me.

Funny. People are weird. I smell almost everything before I use it or eat it...etc. People think I'm odd. Well I am odd but I dont think smelling things is a an indicator!

That is so funny....I really thought I was the only one who ever did that.My bf caught me changing the roll of toilet paper after he had put it on and he just started laughing and told me"honey you are weird sometimes".I'm the same way with the papertowels....they need to be put on correctly on the holder as well. Thanks for sharing....at least now I know that I'm not the only one!

when ime washing the dishes knifes and forks after a meal i have to do them in order of size biggest to smallest and stack them on the side in that order and wash them in the same way each time starting with knifes & forks then dishes then cups/mugs then pans really annoys me when my brother or anyone else staying at my house dosent do it like that i try not to let them do it but if they do without me knowing i have to start and wash them again when they are out of my way

I'm not sure if mine is really odd but its something I do a whole lot. When I'm writing a paper, a letter, note, anything I have to have my hand writing PERFECT or I will redo it until I think it looks nice. I get so stressed writing with pens because I would have to start over a whole lot lol.

LOL Your funny. I hate that too! If I know the person At all I usually fix it for them...if I dont know them I will tell them its sticking out. Not a shy person here I guess! I'm sure you'll think of more...I think most of us are pretty silly with the things we do!

I have different glasses for different drinks. If my partner gives me the wrong glass I have to go and change it. When I hang my washing on the line I always hang the clothes a certain way up. If my partner or children hang it out differently I have to go out and change it. My handwriting has to be perfect. I remember before computers, I had to write my assignments. If I made a mistake halfway down the page, I would rewrite the whole page again. The same on mylot. I always check my writing before posting and if I have made a mistake once I have posted it, it really annoys me. I am convinced I have a certain level of OCD.

I dont think you have OCD. I think you must just be like the rest of us out there who want things done their way! I have so many things like you mentioned that when my hubby would do it, I would make him redo my way or do it myslef. Even if the results would have ended up the same! Especially things that had to do with the babies! Thanks for your response! I have spent so much time responding to people answering my posts, I better get busy answering some of my friends! Thanks Friend!

Funny! I guess if it was my hubby doing the dishes though I wouldnt tell him to stop! Lord knows we need one more thing to do in the day! Maybe just tell him the "Right" way!

the toylet paper thing is funny, i do that too but only at my house. if someone else puts it on wrong here i will change it too. i can't think of any other weird thigs i do though. maybe it's because to me it doesn't seem weird.
