RQOTD - Thursday

What is your weirdest quirk?

Maybe that I have to use the same lanes on the freeway every day. I hate to switch lanes unless I just rally have to so I stay in the same one every day, to and from work. And if someone else is driving me I usually direct them to "my lane" too because if we are all over the highway I get really anxious that we will miss our exit.

I won't use anyone else's pen or let anyone else use my pen. My boss used my pen once and I actually threw it away!! Never know where his hands have been! HAHA!

I can't stand stickers, like the ones that come on things that you buy. DH knows he has to leave them for me to peel off. As much as I hate them, I hate it when anyone else peels them off, I have to do it! I can't look at them when people leave them on things, because all I can think about is how I want to peel it off for them.

I hate sitting in the middle of a restaurant. I hate it when we are seated at a table that is not against a wall and I've been known to ask for a different table if I'm feeling particularly picky that day. I also take the seat that will face the majority of the restaurant. For some reason I don't like having my back to all the action.

Lol, I really don't know why! I like to people watch so that is part of it. Also, I don't like people staring at the back of my head.

Mine are all touch issues. They say it's actually a form of OCD. Here's my list.

-I cannot touch paper towels. If I need to, I use a glove.
-I also cannot touch anything after washing my hands, if I have not put on lotion.
-I cannot touch my bath towel to hang it up after drying off. DH has to do it for me, or I have to wait several hours for the towel to dry and my hands to stop being heebie jeebie.
-I cannot touch the hospital linens. I have to wear gloves anytime I might have to touch it.

I sound totally crazy now! Feel free to take me away and lock me up. :oops:

:teethchatter: Here are the heebie jeebies for you.

That is all very interesting. I wonder what causes that...especially the part about your own towel? I can see not touching hospital linens, clean or not - gross stuff happens on those (thanks for the reminder this close to deliver AMBER! Gah).

My mom can't touch anything wooden. She seriously gets the chills and almost loses it.

I think the reason I cannot touch the hospital stuff is because they wash it in insanely high temps to get off the cooties, and it gets all stiff and dry and tey feel horrible. Ugh! I wouldn't worry about them being groudy- truth be told, those are probably the cleanest thing in the room.

When I had my babies, I had to bring my own linen, so I could actually touch them! lol!

You do not sound crazy. I hate touching things, elevator buttons or door knobs, and sometimes if I put lotion on, I have to go and wash that off!

Like Kristi mine is pen related. I have to use the same pen on everything for the most part. Especially so if I've started something I need to use the same pen for it. For example, my check book.

I'm sure I have others but this was the first to come to mind.

How about you, Ashley?

Man, you're all a bunch of whack jobs. Wink

I make Tyson kiss me in multiples of three. And yes, I count. I can't help it.
