I also have 21 house plants.

I'm glad I'm not the only wierd one out there.

Don't like cheese, but love cheese 'n onion crisps.

Chocolate digestives, and the chocolate side has to ALWAYS be on the bottom when I eat it (same with Jaffa cakes).

most of the above, and most people i know think i'm odd because i run!!

09/11/2012 at 09:03

Yeah I agree with the above, if you run, you're considered odd. I am mesmerised when someone who is clearly unfit asks me with genuine curiosity why do I run.

And I noticed that I make tea every morning for my wife and daughters and they must receive it in age order youngest first, this never changes, don't know where it came from but I won't break it

I always have the volume on the car radio set to an even number


My God, I though I was the only one who had this particular volume control (I do it for all volume tv , radio etc) pecadillo !

 

I thought I was the only one who did this!

All volumne controls have to be set to an even number. Or 25, I can accept that as I quite like multiples of 5 (but no other multiple of 5 for volume controls).

If OH is watching the TV when I come in, I have to check the volume.... he thinks I'm odd too.

Ooh ooh I wonder if this has been documented, perhaps I can write a journal paper about digital volume control OCD

09/11/2012 at 09:41

I do not allow the volume on our tv to be higher than 16.  Everyone else must be deaf if they can't hear it!

If I'm walking or running with another person, I have to be on their right hand side. I don't mind being in the middle or on the left if there are more than 2 of us though.

I clean my teeth in the shower. I think it makes sense, saves time as I can multi-task and do it while I'm waiting for my conditioner to sink in, but other people seem to think it's odd.

I have the bank notes in my wallet (there's never many in there, I'm married) in numerical order (largest at the back) all facing the correct way.

+1 - I think that is a throw back from my days working in a bank though.

Cleaning teeth in the shower is just good time management.

I wonder if the walking on one side thing is related to holding the telephone on the same side?  Like you have a preference for listening through one particular ear?  I have the same thing, although maybe it was more pronounced when I had an ear wax problem?  (Couldn't hear what anyone was saying...)

i collect watches (an expensive habbit) and i have to have all of them (13 at the moment) set to the exact same second, drives me up the wall if they are not, and since all but 1 are analogue time pices, its a huge pain in the ass, especially when the clocks change, luckily they all keep time very well, only the breitling loses a second a week.

Our new TV doesn't have number on the volume control just a bar. It does make me feel uneasy not knowing what the number actually is.

I with you on the bank notes. When I get some out of the cashpoint® I have to turn them round so they are facing out before putting them in my wallet.

Eating sandwiches (only applies to square cut and not triangles) I have to eat the one with the top part of the crust first - you know the bit that sometimes is a bit burnt. For some reason I have got it in my head it tastes better?

+1 from me too for order of value, although I fold the notes.

I can't decide if you've just displayed the most brilliantly clever piece of irony there - or if you have another major problem of which you might not be aware!

I'm pretty much ambidextrous, I can do most things including writing with either right or left hand (though writing with my left hand is very scruffy). But I cannot stir a cup of coffee with my left hand, feels completely wrong.

I know a couple of people who have the volume number OCD thing, it's great fun to adjust the volume by one when they're not looking

I have to eat my dinner in a certain order. A Sunday roast for example would be carrots first, other veg (not peas), yorkshire pudding, meat, mash potato and mushy peas mashed together (these are the only two foods that she be mixed together in a roast dinner, other combinations are wrong), finally roast potatoes. It is ok to dip all the other foods into gravy though

09/11/2012 at 15:18

Mushy peas in a roast dinner? 

I'm going to have to try that

When I whisk with my right hand, the whisking is clockwise. When I whisk with my left hand, I whisk anti-clockwise.

I'm not sure, it just feels wrong if I'm on the left. Almost feels uncomfortable to turn my body that way to talk to them. Also if I'm going to hold hands I still want to have my dominant hand free

When I do the washing up, it's always in the same order and has to go on the drainer in a set way. Glassware (and any mugs) first, then any chopping boards, saucepan lids and cutlery. Then crockery (in order of circumference) and finally any cookware. OH does things seemingly at random and it drives me mad!
