Personal Quirks

Post

Everyone's got a few. What are yours?

I hate using the top sheet on my bed. I only use the bottom sheet with and a comforter.

Also, if I'm watching a movie or listening to music, I HAVE to make the volume an even number.

Whenever I order a drink at a fast-food restaurant, I always specify "no ice" because I take so long to eat that the ice melts in the drink and it gets watery.

Ah yes, the constant struggle between warm drinks or watery drinks.
"Let me get this straight. I bet all those non-friends of yours try to embarrass you about your love for that stuff, right? So, you almost feel like you have to hide your treasures away and can only take them out in secret on rainy days when your mom goes to the store to get more liver and nobody is around to berate your sensitive spirit. Is that what you’re saying?" -Jay Smouse

Right! It's like, I want my Chick-fil-A lemonade unadulterated, thank you. And I mean, sometimes it's a little warm, but I don't really like cold drinks anyway.

I also do this thing where when I'm placing my silverware in the dishwasher, I place each individual piece in one at a time in order of the trays from left to right (or front to back). My super-organized roommate caught on, and now she does it, too, and my mom also started doing it (although I think that was just to shut me up about it, to be honest).

That's me. Otherwise the top sheet gets tangled at the foot of the bed and goes unused. :x

My husband does this and it drives me crazy. :mad: then the drink gets warm!

I can't stand sleeping with my socks on. I can't remember ever having slept with socks on, actually.

No. No. The silverware must be evenly balanced from the handle. There must be an equal amount of silverware in both the right and left baskets. (The fact that the silverware basket is multi-symmetrical from the middle doesn't hurt) If there are still more that don't evenly fit in the two outer baskets, you may start in the center of the middle basket with the remaining even-numbered silverware.

But what if your basket doesn't have a handle and just goes straight across on one side? Those are the baskets my dishwashers at home and in my dorm have.

See, I'm somewhere in the middle. I like schedules and organization, but I really like when those schedules are outlines rather than like, detailed spreadsheets planning out minutia. I like flexibility and the ability to deviate when necessary.

I love awkwardness.

I'm sure the whole world is going to look at me and shun me but I do. :D I'm totally fine sitting by myself in a corner when other people are all talking. I really enjoy it /because/: I look awkward, which makes other people awkward, which annoys them, and annoying people makes me happy! :wacky: I am very strange but I love my silly little troll heart. =)

Another thing, I like annoying people. xD

This...is actually pretty cool. I need to do this more.

So I noticed this about myself: when I sing in church, I hold my right thumb with my left fist.

I cannot stand people who don't wipe down counters after they're finished using them. They're leaving a mess and we are using those counters, keep them clean!

:D You should be glad you live in a completely different country than I do. I would love to mess with your organized mess. :twisted:

@kait: you are married?!?!?!?!? How old are you anyway?

@kait: sorry, I didn't mean to be rude or disrespectful, I was just surprised.

It makes me crazy when I am in the middle of a really great book, and then someone interrupts me. It makes me crazy! I also like my homework, English, better than science. I continually try to look like I am from WWII-era, or the 1800's.
